Ever since leaving the Green Berets to work in private security, Alex Tucker has longed for some excitement—and he’s about to get his wish.
Archeologist Malcolm Armstrong needs the chance to prove he isn’t a fraud. Along with Alex, he’s hired to track down and authenticate a valuable scepter, in a hunt that turns deadlier than either of them imagined as they search dangerous locations across three continents and try to stay ahead of the factions who want the treasure for themselves—and Malcolm and Alex dead.
Just as they realize the feelings between them transcend convenience and the thrill of the chase, a rival reemerges, threatening everything.
I love Cari Z’s books, so was excited to pick this one up. Her books are always full of excitement, some bad guys, good guys falling in love, and someone inevitably meets their maker. 🙂
Although I wouldn’t say the romance knocked it out of the park for me, I did enjoy it, and would like to see these two get a bit more of the romance that they never really found much time for.
The backstory on the MC’s, their families, etc was interesting and fun. It was a bit of Indiana Jones, and a lot of action and adventure. I loved the backdrop of Africa, as it isn’t one you read about often.
Definitely worth a fun read.
