"I had a wonderful time reading this book"

Charlotte "Charlie" Blair has no idea that the gorgeous man she was holding a gun on was a cop, and he got to see her naked, even though he hadn't bought her dinner first. With a dead guy in her basement and cops crawling all over her home, Charlie is not sure what her next step should be. What she does know is she needs to find the golden rod of Manco Copac, not these cute but nearly useless Ica Stones.

Detective Rob Vaiden cannot afford to become distracted by the gorgeous, wet, naked woman holding a gun on him, not while he is hunting a serial killer. And he is going to stick to the beautiful Archeologist, no matter how independent she is.

I had a wonderful time reading this book. I learned amazing things I did not know and enjoyed doing the research that the author could only hint at. The book was wonderfully warm and sensual. The sexual tension between the main characters was a palpable thing. The mysteries in the book make you sit there and go hmm, as you try and figure them out. The progression of the story was natural and there is a twist you just don't see coming. All in all, this is a wonderful story.

Naked. Wet. Pointing a gun at your dream guy. What a way to start the day…

Archaeologist Charlotte “Charlie” Blair arrives home from a dig in Peru to find a dead body in her house—and herself suspected of murder. Sorting out the truth, that a serial killer has been using her place to stash his kills, proves easier than shaking off the detective who’s determined to protect her.

Detective Rob Vaiden’s first sight of Charlie is naked, wet, and pointing a Glock at his chest. Oh yeah, this is going to be a hell of a case. Something about the bombshell has attracted the attention of Orion, a killer Vaiden’s been pursuing since his days as a rookie cop. To catch Orion, he needs to be near Charlie. Trouble is, while she’s easy on the eyes, the maddeningly independent woman is determined she doesn’t need his help.

Vaiden gets on Charlie’s last nerve, but she’s got her own problems. The golden rod of Manco Copac, the greatest find in her career, has disappeared. In place of the gold phallus she finds a bag of mythical Ica stones. Stones for which Orion is willing to kill.

Charlie…the stones…Orion. What connects this deadly triangle? Vaiden and Charlie race to figure it out—before Orion chooses his next target.

Genre: Romantic Suspense, Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel

Warning: This novel depicts a kickass heroine who enjoys steamy sex with a hunky detective, when not otherwise engaged in being chased, kidnapped, and mugged for a solid gold penis.
