A Lion by the Mane

By Edna Dawes

English veterinary-surgeon Margaret Ward is being flown from Cape Town to a Game Reserve in the Transvaal.

The pilot is the younger partner in Schroeder Freight Limited, but Jan Schroeder is a man struggling to prove himself and the flight ends in a disaster of his own making.

Margaret is smugly convinced she can tame the headstrong pilot, but finds the human male vastly different from a caged animal in her laboratory. When Jan leaps from one disaster to another and is finally faced with a choice between his life and a course that will ruin and discredit his brother and Schroeder Freight Limited, Margaret stubbornly follows him into a vortex of danger, tribal witchcraft, and tangled emotions that she had little expected to find in a peaceful Game Reserve…
