He’s been alone for years. Marooned on a deserted island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, he long ago let go of the pleasantries and mannerisms of civilization. He’s become a savage, driven by instinct and impulse—more animal than man.

Then she washes up on his island, and everything changes. Her survival becomes more important that his. Her needs more essential than his own. Her pleasure more imperative than his.

This woman becomes his whole life. Not because she’s the first woman he’s seen in years, but because she’s the one he’s spent his whole life waiting for.

But will she feel the same? Will she be able to bring the man back from the savage? Or will she bring even more of the savage out of the man?

Either way, this tropical island’s about to get even hotter.

The recent slew of the (re)interpretations of the Tarzen/Jane story has gotten me hot and bothered…in a good way.

Books or rather, novellas like ‘Savage’ play happily on archetypes, varying only slightly in the way the Tarzen-type character and his lady get stranded and then get hot and heavy in a place that erases the trappings of modern life – and reduces man to beast and primal urges. But because I know exactly what I’m getting into from the beginning, it’s easy to overlook the cheesy bits of the story and just indulge in this guilty pleasure.

There’s a slight twist in this story though, at the end and it surprised me enough to make erotica like this memorable.
