In the first book in the Lodestone series, Adair does what she does best, create an adrenalin rush for readers as she weaves a steamy romance into a gripping suspense story. Camping gear clerk and Kansas lottery winner Acadia Gray decides to have a blowout adventure before she turns 30. After a complete makeover, she arrives in Venezuela ready to party. She picks up successful computer search engine cocreator Zak Stark at a bar and takes him back to her room for a night of sex. In the morning, they are abducted and taken with Zak's brother, Gideon, into the jungle. The mercenaries demand 20 million dollars for each hostage, to which the Stark brothers agree, although the thrill-seeking men actually plan to escape. They are surprised when Acadia, even though terrified, proves an asset in using the camping supplies she's packed into her 28-pocket vest. In fact, she saves Zak's life over and over while they gradually fall in love. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
