“Sexy romance sizzles” in the third novel featuring adventure-seeking sisters from the New York Times bestselling author of Desert Heat (Publishers Weekly).
For reporter Hope Sinclair, writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island should be her big break. Yet Hope can’t help feeling she’s been hand-picked for this job for all the wrong reasons. Someone wants Hope out of New York—and off a story that could blow a corruption case wide open. But if they think sending her to paradise will shut her up, they’ve got another thing coming . . .
Treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL Conner Reese isn’t happy to have Hope along for the ride. He doesn’t need the publicity, nor does he want a gorgeous redhead driving his crew—and himself—to distraction. But there’s something else. Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely . . .
Praise for Kat Martin
“Kat Martin is a fast gun when it comes to storytelling, and I love her books.” —Linda Lael Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A terrific storyteller.” —Booklist
“It doesn’t matter what Martin’s characters are up against—she dishes up romantic suspense, sizzling sex and international intrigue.” —RT Book Reviews
“[A] master of suspenseful romance.” —Publishers Weekly
Spicy romance compensates for weak suspense in the third installment of bestseller Martin's Sinclair Sisters series (after Midnight Sun and Desert Heat). In the midst of investigating the condemnation of a city apartment building, Manhattan newspaper reporter Hope Sinclair gets pulled by her editor from that assignment and sent to Pleasure Island, near Jamaica, to chronicle the efforts of a treasure hunting team searching for priceless cargo from a Spanish ship that sank 400 years earlier. Near Pleasure Island, Hope boards the Conquest, the ship from which divers are conducting their search. Conner "Conn" Reese, treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL, is the primary player in the expedition. The close quarters of the Conquest serve to throw together Hope and Conn, two people jaded from previous disastrous relationships. Sexy romance sizzles between the pair in numerous love scenes. Unfortunately, the plot involving Conn's financial partner, who warns Hope away from continuing her research into the New York apartment house, is both predictable and underdeveloped, and the suspenseful action promised by the back cover copy never gets off the ground.
