She believed in happy endings, when romance writer Sarah hired as exadventure to help her locate an old family heirloom, she fully intented to live out her secret fantasy. And Gideon was it. Dark, mysterious, dangerously appealing, he personified the heroes she'd dreamed and written about.

But the real man was much harder to figure out. Sharing a cozy cabin in the mountains with Gideon didn't help. Sarah had to unveil his shadowy past before she could fulfill her quest for the long-buried treasure- and the persect mate. Only then could reality match fiction.

Its a good read I liked it a lot.

I really enjoyed this book, although I did not think that it was one of her best.

I like to read about mystery and romance and this book has both of those elements. There is also the friction of two people drawn together fighting against the attraction which keeps you on edge. A great book and yours for the asking.

Good modern-day romance with an interesting theme. But not enough "treasure-hunting" adventure for me, in fact the treasure hunting itself maybe would take 10 minutes of your reading time if that the only sections you read. The heroine is a little high-strung and cocky. She has fabricated a romance with a man she has only written business-type letters too and when they meet she informs him that he does want a relationship with her and she is what he needs. Almost at a stalker-type personality!

However, it is a quick read and interesting in parts.

Good story, the premise of the treasure hunt is put together well. Some of the romance is strange since Sarah is following intuition and talks to herself a lot. Cats in the story are cute.

A predictable genre romance, but still a light-hearted romp that's a fun read for a rainy afternoon.


From back cover: Fact: In the late 1800s, a spinster schoolteacher spent a summer in the Washington mountains searching for gold. Legend: Emelina Fleetwood found the gold -- and used it to buy five pairs of gemstone earrings, each in the shape of her favorite flowers. Before she died, she buried the treasure, then drew a map of the spot. Legacy: Well, one part of the legend is true. A crudely drawn map has been handed down to each generation of Fleetwood women. And if that's true, surely the rest of the legend must be. At least that's what Sarah Fleetwood believes -- and she's the current owner of the map. Gideon Trace, the treasure hunter she's hired to help her, isn't so sure. But Sarah is convinced he's some kind of hero, and if that's enough to keep her close to him, Gideon's more than willing to share the adventure.

I wish I could say it was great - but it was very predictable.
