FREE this weekend (5/21-25): Desert Gold: A Southwest Adventure Romance
“Kept me on the edge of my chair. It’s one of those books I couldn’t put down.” – Barb
“Fast, fun, romance and adventure. What more can you ask for?” – Niki D.
A legendary treasure hunt in the dramatic – and deadly – New Mexico desert....
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?
Just how far will Erin go to find the treasure and discover what she’s really made of?
“The story has it all—action, romance, danger, intrigue, lost treasure, not to mention a sizzling relationship....”
"This was a fantastic read! The camaraderie between the main character and her sister-in-crime starts out on page one, and takes off running! The author did a great job of integrating local flavor into the plot, and painting a realistic Southwestern backdrop. Erin and Camie together are a force to be reckoned with - three cheers for intelligent, driven, no-nonsense women! Looking forward to more adventures with these two!" – Cathy M.
