The Treasure: A Time Walker Novel
Revenge. Celeste has crossed an ocean for it, erased her identity for it, entwined her fate with the bloodthirstiest pirate just for a chance at it. But time spent in such close quarters with murderers and thieves is beginning to play tricks with her sanity. How else to explain the stranger only she sees, the one who sees her, sees through her, his exquisite, brandy-colored eyes finding her again and again?
Orion is a time walker; a sworn protector of the human race. As long as Underworld creatures seek Celeste, he will be there to guard her. Orion senses something mysterious - and wrong - in Celeste's blood. It draws him like no other. And if he can sense its enormous power, the evil ones can, too.
Celeste refuses to forego her dangerous mission. Orion won't stop trying to protect her, even if it destroys him. Who will yield?
"The Treasure has a feisty heroine, a swoon-worthy hero, well-developed major and minor characters, and enough twists and turns for a map to hidden pirate’s booty. The romance grew with the plot and characters and though the attraction between Celeste and Orion was powerful, it was definitely not “insta-love”. Since they both had strong personalities, and at times, conflicting motivations, they often clashed, which made the relationship fascinating. Overall, I found The Treasure entertaining, sexy, absorbing, surprising, and a lot of fun. I can’t wait to read all of Ms. McBride’s books." ~K. Smits
