THE FOREVER INSTINCT
From America’s beloved storyteller, Barbara Delinsky, comes a classic novel of a man and woman following their instincts—and doing what comes naturally…
When Jordanna Kirkland agrees to go backpacking in New Hampshire, she doesn’t realize the trip is for men only—and that one of those men would be Patrick Clayes. Not only is Patrick rugged, handsome, and irresistibly charming, he’s also her ex-husband’s business rival in New York. Jordanna knows she should ignore her attraction to Patrick. But when the nights get cold, those lips of his are awfully warm—and impossible to resist. Why fight it? What happens in the wild stays in the wild, right? The real problem starts when Jordanna and Patrick go back to the boardrooms of Manhattan—but the passion never stops…
SHE RECOGNIZED HIM INSTANTLY. His face was the same, if more mature, with tiny time lines etched into his brow and at the corners of his eyes. Flecks of silver whispered through his thick sable hair. Though thinner than he’d been when she’d seen him last, he was every bit as tall and broad of shoulder. And his intensity hadn’t lessened.
“Jordanna Kirkland,” he stated, dredging her name from the depths of the past as he soberly stared at the woman whose arrival at the campground had coincided nearly perfectly with his own.
