The latest book in a New York Times bestselling thrilling paranormal romance series featuring the men and women of Lodestone: when there is no hope left, this special agency can deliver or retrieve anything, anyone, anywhere.

Sexual tension accelerates the race to unravel a complicated puzzle in the latest romantic thriller from the New York Times bestselling "mistress of adrenaline" ( Booklist ).

An Ancient Legacy

Lately, the gods are not smiling on Isis Magee. How else can she explain the bizarre events that have led her on a relentless high-stakes chase from Seattle to London to Cairo in search of the elusive tomb of history's beautiful and enigmatic queen Cleopatra?

A Hidden Treasure

Isis has only two leads: a fragmented trail of clues offered in rare moments of lucidity by her father, a once-respected archaeologist whose last dig ended in disaster, and the unique sixth sense of sexy Lodestone agent Connor Thorne.

The Passion of a Lifetime

Connor also encountered tragedy in the Egyptian desert not long ago, and as Isis pulls him deeper into her mission to restore her father's reputation, he is secretly plotting a revenge of his own. Propelled across wild, untamed sands by vicious unknown forces, the duo is seduced into a labyrinth of secret chambers. When they fear they can go no further, they surrender to their incendiary desires and discover that the prize each separately seeks may be waiting at the end of the same dangerous road.

What I Loved
Isis: Love her name, but I also love that she is a photographer, made me really want to go out and do some photography as well. Anyways, she is a fun character, I can completely respect her desire to help prove her father right.
Connor: Another brooding sexy man wonderfully created by Cherry. British, who doesn't love a sexy British man. Can kick some major ass and of course add a little bit of broken and you got the perfect romance man.
As usual to Cherry's wonderful books, always full of steamy, dirty (in this case), sexy romance and sex. Two great fitting characters that compliment each other wonderfully.
And of course another perfect Cherry book wouldn't be completely without plenty of gun shooting, car chasing, hand to hand combat, life and death situations all in the exciting and dusty city of Egypt. Which I've always been a bit fascinated and in awe of Egypt's ancient beauty and mystery.

Didn't Like
I really wish there would have been one more chapter of wrapping things up, I know the wrap of stuff would have all been implied stuff but I still would have loved to have read it anyways.

Must read for those romance readers that love a good exciting fast pace book.
