Far in the Wilds

A Spear of Summer Grass Prequel

Ms. Raybourn writes a truly captivating and exhilarating tale with her latest novella, 'Far in the Wilds,' and thus capturing the very heart of the African landscape. A unique and wildly adventurous tale of love, death and triumph 'Far into the Wilds' is a must read for anyone seeking a dangerous romantic tale of exploration!

Ryder White is every bit the idyllic tortured hero that romance readers have long been waiting for. Canadian by birth but African by choice, Ryder is not only handsomely masculine but possess a deep love and understanding for the land that he had long since called his home, a land that allows him to bury the haunting shadows of his past long since forgotten.

I would highly recommend this prequel novella to Ms. Rayborn's highly anticipated novel 'A Spear of Summer Grass. The first book in the series is set to release later in the month of April 2013. As with any novella, this book itself was extremely short but worth reading every single word. What the novella lacks in length it does not in capturing the true spirit of the faintest hints of a wild attraction and the heroic dangers it thrives for!
