The H kidnaps the h and treats her badly, abusing her, humiliating her by stripping and tying her etc, all the while she doesn't stop trying to escape. He leaves her, she goes to the police who don't believe her, he rescues her, their plane goes down and they are stranded with an injured guy and two bad guys. The h has been engaged to a fellow teacher for 4 years, the H gives her adventure & she likes having hot sex with him. He is a complicated guy, Nam war messed him up & he is divorced and crude and not someone that can be controlled, she still falls for him & thinks sex will help bind him to her.
Romance didn't work for me much coz I didn't understand how the h could fall for him after his despicable behaviour at the start which he doesn't apologize for. It felt like Stockholm Syndrome to me and the fact that a good girl like her liked getting it on with him.
