She wants revenge. He wants her.
Blackballed from underwater archaeology after accusations of artifact trafficking, Erica Kesling has a new job and a new life on the other side of the country and is working to clear her name. She's closing in on her goal when she's distracted by a sexy, charismatic intern who makes her want something other than revenge.
But Lee Scott is no intern. He's looking for the lead conspirator in an international artifact smuggling scheme, and Erica is his prime suspect. He'll do whatever it takes to win her trust and get her to reveal her secrets, even seduce her.

This book is a thriller plus the usual “romance” already abundant in the genre. The writing is informed and structured with a complex plot that gives Erica agency I rarely see women receive and is greatly appreciated. However, I take issue with how Erica’s sexual assault felt ignored simply because it wasn’t rape, and that Erica’s choice to stay with a man who emotionally and sexually exploited her was painted as a “good” ending rather than the dark and disturbing reality that it reflects.
I love Rachel Grant and this series! I’ve read them all one after another now 3 times. Can’t get enough. If you like history, factual accounts, great characters, plot, & steamy romance, then check out this series. You won’t be disappointed!!!
A great read
Definitely a great book filled with adventure, drama, suspense, and romance. I couldn’t put it down! I literally stayed up all night to finish this book.
