"terrific romantic fantasy"

Otherworld Bureau of Investigation supervisor Jude Quinlan assigns his best field agent Grayson James to retrieve the Jewel of Dunmaris as referenced in the recently found ancient tome Ra Dracus. All Gray has to do is go through a portal in Florida waters that leads to the underwater city of Atlantis, find the item that has incredible paranormal powers, and return home. Jude insists this is a cakewalk for the OBI top person in the cold or in this case under the water.

However, Gray immediately finds himself battling and killing vampires, dragons, and demons. None of those creatures scare him as much as the sexy woman speaking inside his head. She tells him she has no name, but he should call her Jewel. As they team up against all odds, they fall in love, but she believes she can never leave Atlantis while he knows he does not belong there.

JEWEL OF ATLANTIS is a terrific romantic fantasy that sort of reads like Die Hard enters a supernatural Shangri-La as the fabulous hero sounds so much like John McClane while trying to complete the mission yet stay alive against creatures that come across as so real in Atlantis. Jewel brings mystery as to whom and what she is. Fans who appreciate something a bit different but quite entertaining will want to trek with these two fabulous protagonists as she escorts him to the portal, but during that dangerous hike they fall in perhaps the vastest star- crossed love conceivable. JEWEL OF ATLANTIS is fun for fantasy and romance fans.
