It’s 3AM when an odd sound wakes Abby Holland out of a sound sleep. Still getting used to the sounds her grandfather’s house makes, it takes her a minute to realize that there’s someone inside her home. She springs into action, knowing what the intruder seeks – a map leading to a long-lost treasure, The Devil’s Gold – bequeathed to her by her grandfather, the legendary explorer, King Farrell. Barely escaping injury, Abby knows she’ll need help to find the gold that she is convinced King discovered before his death.
Gage Logan is the owner of Treasure Hunter’s Anonymous, and well known for his exploits in finding artifacts and such as well. When Abby comes to his office asking for assistance, he initially presumes that Abby’s map is fake – until he learns that someone tried to kill her for it. Still skeptical, he agrees to look at the map, fascinated by the gold piece that had been included in the box belonging to King. Gage is intrigued and finally agrees to lead an expedition to find the treasure. Despite Gage’s misgivings, Abby insists on being involved in all aspects of the venture – this was her grandfather’s dream and she plans to see it to fruition.
But danger lurks in many forms as the search gets underway, with the stark and unforgiving Superstition Mountains in their sights, and Abby’s nighttime visitor seemingly not far behind. As Gage & Abby forge a grueling search for Kings treasure, they both fight their fierce attraction to one another – unsuccessfully. But Gage, haunted by the loss of a colleague in the past, has no interest in a future – can Abby change his mind, once and for all?
This is the second in the Logan brother’s series and it’s every bit as good as the first! I love the story line, I love the characters, and just didn’t want to put it down! Abby is as fiercely independent as Gage and ‘watching’ these two come together is sheer delight. Coupled with a (almost) perfect ending, and just enough of everything you love in a novel, intrigue, suspense and a little romance, I think you’ll love this one as much as I did!
And now the hopefully not TOO long wait begins for Edge’s (and hopefully Skye’s) story that’s yet to come!
