Publisher Comments:

Cambridge, England, 1905. Jane Porter is hardly a typical woman of her time. The only female student in Cambridge University's medical program, she is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin.

When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets — and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity's past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes.

Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes.

Review:

“Not only is it wildly entertaining and more swoon-worthy and tastefully erotic than Fifty Shades of Grey or any of its knock-offs, but also, Jane has heart and soul. If you are looking for a stellar historical romance and adventure story, Jane should definitely sit on your bookshelf. It has charming and fascinating characters and sociopath villains who scare the living daylights out of you. Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan has positively reinvented the beloved couple for the modern age.” The Huffington Post

Review:

Jane is a triumph! A triumph of imagination, adventure, and character. Here we have the true 'missing link' that we've always wanted — Jane's side of the story.” Margaret George, New York Times bestselling author of Elizabeth I

Review:

“Finally an honest portrayal of the only woman of whom I have been really, really jealous. What a wonderful idea to write this book. Now I am jealous all over again!” Jane Goodall PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, UN Messenger of Peace

Synopsis:

Robin Maxwell's Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes.

Tim Lewis, January 19, 2013 (view all comments by Tim Lewis)
Jane is a creative re-imagining of the Tarzan story that comes from the perspective of Jane. We get a feminine perspective that is often lost in adventure stories. I think Jane is a great addition to the Tarzan story, adding depth to a character who sometimes fades into the background. While I thought there was too much sex and it was too anti-religion, I was still drawn into the characters and the execution of Jane. There is hinting at a sequel when we reach the end, but I felt it unnecessary since the story is complete as is. If this is the case, perhaps it is to go along with the serialized Tarzan stories of Burroughs, but I only hope Robin Maxwell will be less heavy-handed in future installments with any political or religious agenda she might have that came across in this one. It might sound like I didn’t like Jane, but overall I enjoyed it and had trouble putting it down in spite of the things I felt were the author’s views coming through in the writing.
