He’s the King of the Swingers. But she’s the Ice Queen.
When Dr Jennifer Niederhauser becomes head of the chimpanzee project at Prowdes Animal Sanctuary, the uptight young zoologist looks forward to making her mark in the conservation world. But the regime is ramshackle, the chimpanzees uncontrollable and her first meeting with head keeper Guy Gibson finds him naked and covered in baby oil.
She decides never to work with animals or the childish again. But she may not have a job for much longer anyway – Prowdes is in big financial trouble.
Hope comes in the form of a TV documentary. Prowdes needs the money and exposure but there’s a problem. The show’s presenter, chimpanzee expert Dr Timothy Lauder, is Jennifer’s ex-boyfriend. Things could get hairy. . .
