WE ARE EXCITED TO BE SHARING HK JACOBS CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE, WILDE TYPE WITH YOU TODAY.
WILDE TYPE IS THE FIRST BOOK IN THE ALEX WILDE SERIES AND IS OUT NOW!
“He had awoken something in her the first night they met–a rebirth of hope for irrevocable love, a love so powerful that it canceled out the burden of her pain.”
Dr. Alexandra Wilde is brilliant, driven, and wholly dedicated to her profession. Caring for critically ill children has taken her across the globe from Mongolia to Haiti to her current assignment in Gaborone, Botswana. Her life is full of excitement, tragedy, and personal sacrifice with little room for anything or anyone else. She has always welcomed any adventure…except for the one wearing the face of billionaire mining heir and international playboy, Ian Devall. He is arrogant, charming, and utterly disenchanted. However, when circumstances thrust him into her life, she is captivated by a glimpse of his deeper character and drawn into a blazing romance. An ensuing path of self-discovery leads her to reopen the wounds of her past, and she must choose between the life she always imagined…or one she never dreamed was possible.
She had never felt so peaceful and unhinged all at once. Speaking of unhinged. She spied Ian wandering over, two freshly filled mimosa flutes in his hands. He sat down next to her, carefully avoiding any contact with the threatening spikes extending above them. “I thought for sure you wouldn’t want to come and find me here.” Alex glanced up at the clusters of thorns.
“I would probably come find you anywhere.” His smile was so genuine that Alex’s insides did a flip flop, and she tried to remind herself who he was—who he had always been.
“Mmm,” she said, draining her current glass and reaching for the one he offered. Nothing like a little liquid anxiolysis.
“I’m surprised you didn’t leap out of the jeep this morning with your little medical bag and try to save that poor buffalo.” He seemed tipsy and cute, practically giggling at the visual he had created.
“Death is a part of life,” Alex replied dryly. “I know that better than almost anyone.”
“It is,” he said, somber for a moment before continuing. “I can’t help but wonder whether you are a buffalo—the necessary sacrifice for the wellbeing of another species—or the lioness—the queen at the top of the food chain?”
The question caught her off guard. It seemed too profound for a beautiful morning in the Kalahari when they were both mildly drunk. “A little bit of both…depends on the day,” she replied with a raise of one eyebrow. He nodded, curling his lips as he weighed her answer.
“What about today?” The question was simple, but he said it so erotically that she had to staunch the desire flooding her veins.
“The thing is—being a doctor and all—I am a servant to humanity by nature.” She took her index finger and traced it along his neck in the groove between his trachea and sternocleidomastoid muscle. “But I know exactly where your jugular is.” She rose to her feet and headed back toward the jeep. She could feel him watching her the entire way.
