The Lady and the Unicorn by Iris Johansen

Book Description:
Rafe Santine is under doctor’s orders: He needs to stay put in his coastal California mansion for two months to recuperate from the pneumonia that nearly killed him. Despite a retinue of mistresses to keep the powerful tycoon occupied, Rafe struggles against boredom—until a stunning woman literally drops onto his estate. She has high demands of him, but Rafe has even greater demands of her. He knows instantly that he must possess every facet of the enigmatic Janna. But the only thing she’ll give him is her body—and for the first time in his life, that is not enough for Rafe.

Janna Cannon is willing to risk it all to save the endangered animals of the wild animal reserve where she works as a game warden. With the land they depend on pulled out from under them, Janna must take a gambit to convince billionaire Santine to give the reserve the real estate they need to keep the animals free. And she’ll need to sneak onto the man’s vast, highly protected property to do it. Much to her surprise, Santine agrees to grant her the land—if Janna agrees to give him herself in exchange. And what begins as luxurious captivity soon turns into an emotional awakening she never expected.

My Thoughts:
I liked this one.  Rafe is confined by his doctor to his mansion to recuperate.  He is bored and none of the beautiful women he can bring in can keep his attention   Then Janna shows up with some serious demands and he can't get enough of her.  She wants land to save her endangered animals and is shocked when Rafe agrees...that is until she discovers the catch.  But she may just enjoy that more than she expected.  
Rafe was a strong character.  He knows what he wants and goes after it.  Janna would do anything to save the animals and Rafe will do anything to have her!  His agreement to give her the land in exchange for herself surprises her but they really are good together.  This book isn't a 'typical' Johansen book because there isn't any suspense but it is a strong romance!
This one is a 4/5.  It was  good romance.
