Marooned in Africa
Marooned in Africa is an exciting adventure set in the wild and untamed forests of West Africa. A young female biologist is separated from her group, and is storm-tossed on the Expedition yacht into a huge tidal basin, alone. Paula goes ashore to explore, where she is seen and followed by natives, who capture her and take her far inland to be a trophy wife for their chief. Subjected to ritual combat for status, she knows mutilation will soon follow if she does not escape. Once into the forest, she becomes disoriented and follows the wrong trail, ending up on a hillside full of lion dens. Unaware that she is being followed and also stalked, she is confronted by lions and within moments of becoming dinner, is saved by a lone traveler. The journey back to the cove is enlivened by animal encounters, and campfire stories that take her back to times long gone with glimpses into the unknown and savage secrets of Africa. Along the way a unique relationship develops with the man who saved her from the lions, but neither one wants to be the first to express their feelings, until an unexpected decision is made and changes everything.
