A legendary treasure hunt in the dramatic – and deadly – New Mexico desert.... Reviewers give it a 4.6 star average: “The story has it all – action, romance, danger, intrigue, lost treasure, not to mention a sizzling relationship....” The lost Victorio Peak treasure is the stuff of legends—a heretic Spanish priest’s gold mine, made richer by the spoils of bandits and an Apache raider. When Erin, a quiet history professor, uncovers a clue that may pinpoint the lost treasure cave, she prepares for adventure. But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she’s not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy? Erin isn’t sure she can trust Drew with her heart, but she’ll need his help to track down the treasure. She heads into the New Mexico wilderness with her brainy best friend Camie and a feisty orange cat. The wilderness holds its own dangers, from wild animals to sudden storms. Plus, the sinister men hunting Erin are determined to follow her all the way to the treasure, no matter where the twisted trail leads. Erin won’t give up an important historical find without a fight, but is she ready to risk her life—and her heart? “Great balance of history, romance, and adventure. Smart romance with an “Indiana Jones” feel.” “Well-written with an attention to detail tha ...

To complicate matters, Nikki’s fiancé fears for her life if she continues her search and he starts his own dangerous, high-stakes rescue mission. A reviewer wrote, “The action is so fast-paced readers never has a chance to catch their breath until the very end. Nikki is engaging and realistic, and I loved following right alongside her throughout the action. With bad people working on several sides, it is hard to figure out how this story is going to end until the actual end. Clues are given, but the plot keeps twisting and turning so reader will have to wait until the last chapter to know for sure who the bad guy is.”
