In the passionate, gut-wrenching sequel to Amber Hart’s Until You Find Me, Raven and Jospin must fight for each other in a world where love is never safe—and power is deadly.
Raven, a college girl from Michigan, came to the jungles of Cameroon searching for closure. Falling for Jospin, a handsome, charismatic hunter with dark secrets of his own, was never part of the plan. But despite their differences, their attraction is addictive, as exhilarating and wild as the rain forest itself—and also as dangerous.
For the sake of both their lives, their heated affair must remain a secret. Raven wants justice for her conservationist father’s death; to help her, Jospin must turn his back on his own father and the only life he has ever known. Together they risk being hunted by a band of ruthless poachers, but they take the chance anyway, working to bring down their enemies between each stolen kiss.
But when one slip puts Raven’s life at stake, Jospin knows he must act. He has captured Raven’s heart—now can he set her free?

I go by my house, though I know I shouldn’t. The moment I disappeared from Father’s sight, I broke into a run. I haven’t stopped running since; I had to make it here before the other pack members. Because surely they’re on their way. Father would have sent them, no doubt, to search every single inch of my space for clues of my betrayal.
The betrayal that never happened.
The betrayal that belongs to Clovis, though I took the blame. For Raven.
Raven is the only secret I’ve hidden from Father. I’m not a traitor.
But I couldn’t let her die.
That’s what would have happened. Raven would have lost her life looking down the barrel of Father’s gun if I hadn’t taken the fall. So I did it. Claimed to be the spy who leaked information about our pack to our rivals.
Father believed my lie. And Raven is still alive.
It hurts to know that all I’ve worked for, every moment of my life that I had dedicated to my father, to eventually taking over his throne, has been wiped away. I’m banished. But Raven is alive, I remind myself.
I enter my house and lean forward over my knees for a moment, my breath coming in pants, my body tired. They’ll be here any minute. No time to waste. I race to my room. Find the picture Raven drew of us, her signature at the bottom, and fold it into my pocket. Next I grab two guns and as much ammo as I can strap to myself. I slip knives into my pockets.
My eyes settle on the bed. The place where I made Raven mine. Where she gave her heart to me. Where I fell too deeply to ever turn back.
Her legs tangled around me. Breathy little moans leaving her throat, driving me crazy. Me drinking in everything she was willing to give me. Taking it all. Kissing each bare inch of her skin.
I had no idea how much loving Raven would cost me. But it is worth it.
Sweat trickles down my jaw. I need to grab clothes. As many as my bag can hold. A few pairs of cargo pants and shorts. Shirts. Underwear. More ammo. There’s no more room. I hoist the bag up on my shoulders. Let it fall against my back, heavy.
Time’s up. I rush out the door.
A cluster of leaves reflects sunlight from a patch in the green sky. More light dances over me as I slice a path through the forest, quick on my toes, thankful for the moss underfoot that helps silence my movements.
I don’t stop running until I reach the habitat gates. I check my surroundings. Make sure I’m not being watched.
My fist hits the door harder than I intended.
I glance backward. Still no one.
I knock again. Any louder and the surrounding trees will echo my location. I can’t risk leading anyone here.
Should I run?
Maybe I’ve made a mistake. Maybe I can try to make it in this jungle alone. Or maybe I could strike a deal with another poaching pack, offer them information on my father if they’ll provide me a place to stay and the promise that harm won’t come to me.
I can’t stomach the thought of betraying my pack, my family, that way. I just can’t. This is my only choice.
