Jewelry designer and gemologist, Megan Foster purchases an antique portrait of a bewitching temptress draped in emeralds and discovers a two hundred year old diary and treasure map hidden behind the frame. To unlock the secrets of the map and the woman, Megan enlist the help of an underwater photographer turned artist.
Underwater diver, Eric Cortes, gets much more than he bargained for at his first private showing as an aspiring artist. He never expected to meet an intriguing jewelry designer or hunt for a lost pirate treasure or become the prime suspect in a murder.
Their quest embroils them in a maze of mob murder, deceit and a tumultuous relationship.
Loved the book, very well written and researched. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good read.
