The latest book in a New York Times bestselling thrilling paranormal romance series featuring the men and women of Lodestone: when there is no hope left, this special agency can deliver or retrieve anything, anyone, anywhere.
Sexual tension accelerates the race to unravel a complicated puzzle in the latest romantic thriller from the New York Times bestselling “mistress of adrenaline” (Booklist).
An Ancient Legacy
Lately, the gods are not smiling on Isis Magee. How else can she explain the bizarre events that have led her on a relentless high-stakes chase from Seattle to London to Cairo in search of the elusive tomb of history’s beautiful and enigmatic queen Cleopatra?
A Hidden Treasure
Isis has only two leads: a fragmented trail of clues offered in rare moments of lucidity by her father, a once-respected archaeologist whose last dig ended in disaster, and the unique sixth sense of sexy Lodestone agent Connor Thorne.
The Passion of a Lifetime
Connor also encountered tragedy in the Egyptian desert not long ago, and as Isis pulls him deeper into her mission to restore her father’s reputation, he is secretly plotting a revenge of his own. Propelled across wild, untamed sands by vicious unknown forces, the duo is seduced into a labyrinth of secret chambers. When they fear they can go no further, they surrender to their incendiary desires and discover that the prize each separately seeks may be waiting at the end of the same dangerous road.
Adair s fast-paced third Lodestone romantic thriller (after Hush and Afterglow) delivers a healthy dose of action, sensuality, and romance. Connor Thorne, on leave from MI5 following a terrible injury, is hired by Isis Magee, daughter of a prominent Egyptologist, to find what might be the lost tomb of Cleopatra. With his special forces training and psychometric ability to track where objects come from, and her intimate knowledge of her father s work, it should be a snap, but old enemies want them dead, turning every step of the journey into a life-or-death struggle. Sizzling chemistry and adrenaline-charged action scenes propel the story, but the tension is hamstrung by the resolution mostly taking place offscreen. The ruthlessness and effectiveness of the antagonists vary depending on plot needs, but the erotic and romantic components make up for the occasional implausibility and convoluted schemes.
