"Hunted Heiress" by Aeriell Lawton is a short tale that starts out with a rather arrogant, spoiled. rich girl getting ready for a trip to France, and winds up as a romance. In between, she is kidnapped; survives a private jet crash, as does her captor; and is rescued by a nearby camper who just happens to be a policeman. After her rescue, she has to camp out with her rescuer for two nights as they slowly trek toward the nearest town. At the same time, her captor awakens from being knocked out in the crash, and quickly ascertains that his captive has been rescued. He follows their footprints, but as they had pitched their tent some distance from the trail, he walks right past them and beats them to town. When they finally get to town a second kidnapping attempt is foiled once again by the vacationing policeman, and the kidnapper is arrested by the local Sheriff. The story ends as all romances end, so I won't go into details.

Although "Hunted Heiress" is a formulaic romance, the setting makes it somewhat different from most romances. It is somewhat annoying and amusing at the same time; for example, remember that the heiress is such a whiny little pain in the rear who has never in her life slept on the ground, or so much as seen a bug, let alone been swarmed by them. She readily adapts, however, to find herself attracted to her rescuer in spite of his "common" social standing. For a romance, this is both an amusing and entertaining short story. I would recommend this book to fans of romances. Also, if you have never read a romance, and think you'd like to try one, this is a good one to start with.
