Ren's Little Corner

Just want to try Booklikes. I have my own blog, Ren's Little Corner, written in Indonesia. Consider to visit it, please :)
Heart of Fire - Linda Howard Jillian Sherwood, berusaha membuktikan teori ayahnya bahwa kaum Amazon yang terdiri atas wanita2 perkasa, memang benar hidup di belantara Amazon, sementara banyak orang yang tidak percaya pada sang ayah, bahkan menjulukinya "Crackpot".

Dengan ditemani sang kakak dan sponsor, mereka (yang sayangnya namanya aku lupa, hohohoho :)) ) menyanggupi untuk menemani Jillian. Walaupun sebenarnya kakak Jillian membenci sang adik, tapi karena tahu ada berlian merah langka, yang terdapat dalam peninggalan Suku Amazon, dia pun mau bersusah payah menelusuri rimba Amazon di Brazil

Kakak Jillian kemudian menyewa seorang pemandu.
Dan jreng, jreng, jreng, sambutlah salah satu Pria Seksi di Novel Linda Howard, yang tak kalah seksi dari para Pulisi dan agen EP BI AI, Ben Lewis!! (lebay :p )
Ben sendiri jelas2 tertarik pada Jillian, dan bahkan tidak repot2 menunjukkan rasa tertariknya (terlihat dari caranya memanggil Jillian sweetheart , yang nantinya bakalan berevolusi jadi lebih romantis lagi ^^)

Saat akhirnya mereka menemukan bukti keberadaan Suku Amazon, kejadian tak terduga menimpa mereka. Sponsor Jillian berkhianat dan membunuh kakak Jillian. Jillian dengan ditemani Ben, beusaha keluar dari Amazon. Sampai akhirnya Jillian tahu alasan mereka dikejar2, karena ternyata Ben telah menemukan Permata Amazon dan menyembunyikannya, yang jelas - jelas digunakan untuk kepentingannya sendiri.

Jillian yang merasa dikhianati, meninggalkan Ben, sebelum Ben akhirnya menemukannya dan menjelaskan alasannya.Setelah Jillian menerima Ben kembali mereka masih harus waspada, karena ternyata sang penjahat tidak kenal lelah mengejar mereka untuk mendapatkan permata Amazon.

Salah satu judul dari tante Linda Howard faveku.Ceritanya buaguuuus :D Seru, walau baru keliatan seru2nya di tengah2 cerita. Sebelumnya lumayan boring abis, walaupun sexual tension antara Jillian dan Ben cukup terasa.Anyway the memorable moment , menurutku adalah, adegan "ehem2" mereka di Hutan Amazon, sambil hujan2an dan setelah itu mendapati mereka diawasi oleh suku sekitar. Hot, tapi juga lucu banget ^^

My favorite quote and scene:

He carefully kept his hand away from the pistol. This was a band of hunters; the six-foot arrows they carried were tipped with poison, probably cyanide, not a substance he cared to screw around with. He spoke with them in their language. The oldest of the Yanomami, a dignified man with graying hair, replied.

After a few moments of conversation she could see the Indians relax, the stern cast of their features easing into smiles. The gray-haired man said something as he slapped his hands together several times, and they all laughed.

Ben was chuckling too.

"What's funny?" she asked.

"Oh, nothing."

He couldn't have said anything that would have made her more suspicious, or more curious.

"What? You'd better tell me."

"He just wondered why we were making slap-slap in the rain, instead of in our funny little moloca—that's 'house' to them, 'tent' to you."

Jillian could feel her face heat up as she realized there had been several very interested but puzzled witnesses to their lovemaking, but at the same time she had an almost overwhelming urge to laugh. "Slap-slap?" she asked faintly.

Ben's eyes were alive with merriment. "Yeah, you know." He lightly clapped his hands together, re-creating with devilish accuracy the sound of wet bodies moving together in hard rhythm. "Slap-slap."

Quickly she put her hands over her mouth, but the laughter gurgled out anyway. The Yanomami began laughing again, genially joining her mirth.

He looked smug. "I gather they were also impressed by both my… shall we say presence, and my technique."

"Shut up," she gasped, trying to gulp back the giggles. "Or I'll slap-slap your face-face."

His expression changed to one of pure ecstasy. "Oh, God," he said. "Would you?"


Selalu ngakak tiap baca bagian ini =))
