No one charters the depths of passion on the high seas like New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair in Stormchaser
DESIRE RUNS DEEP
Somewhere off the coast of Greece, a king’s ransom in gold, emeralds, and silver coins lies waiting at the bottom of the sea. Finding this ancient treasure would be a dream come true for marine archeologist Calista West. But that’s not why she’s here. She didn’t climb aboard Jonah Cutter’s magnificent yacht seeking fortune or fame. She’s come for revenge—against the sexiest, most seductive, modern-day pirate she’s ever encountered…
Like his famous half brothers, Jonah is a master of salvaging ships—and driving women mad with his movie-star looks and raw animal magnetism. Tall, dark, and devastating, he manages to make Callie forget her mission. Every moment they share under the hot Mediterranean sun is an erotically-charged adventure neither can resist. But when Callie discovers what he’s really after—the lost city of Atlantis—is it too late to change the course of her heart…or go all in with the lover of her dreams?
The Cutter Cay series is:
"Action-packed drama." —Fresh Fiction
"Sizzlingly sexy." —Booklist
"Enticing." —Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Panting lust and an undersea mystery are, sadly, not enough to save Adair's weak fourth Cutter Cay contemporary romance (after Vortex). Dr. Callie West is a marine archeologist who signed on to Jonah Cutter's expedition near Greece with ulterior motives. She presents herself as married, though she's actually widowed; the last thing she wants is for the enigmatic, darkly handsome Jonah to know she's available or to find out her true purpose. Jonah battles inner demons, trying to resist his attraction to the very married archeologist whose services he secured from under his archrival's nose. However, neither of them can deny the chemistry that's building during the long days and longer nights in an almost magical place. The heat is sidelined by the possible discovery of the lost city of Atlantis, and by threats from a mysterious group of people determined to undermine their salvage efforts. While the elements surrounding Atlantis's discovery are fascinating, Adair relies much too heavily on sexual yearnings to propel the story, at the expense of an otherwise solid plot. Two-dimensional, sex-obsessed characters don't stand up to the wonder of research and history.
