Wed on a whim in Las Vegas and deserted the morning after, archaeological tour guide Cairo McKnight has nothing to show for that night five years later except an annulmentDand a precocious son who's the image of his adventurer father. But now Cairo needs Duncan Kincaid's help, and when she finally tracks him down deep inside a Montana cave, they are forced to deal with their continuing attraction to each otherDin spite of the past. The well-matched protagonists are complemented by a trio of wonderfully memorable secondary characters (including a quirky aunt in search of a relationship, a wheelchair-bound widower with a magnetic personality, and an energetic four-year-old with a genius IQ). The sassy dialog and well-handled sexual tension in this funny, fast-paced romance is sure to please Berg's (Wife for a Day) growing readership.
LIBRARY JOURNAL REVIEW
They were married one night--and then he disappeared. Five years later they meet again, in the deep, dark tunnels of a long-forgotten cave, searching for a fabled lost city of gold. Duncan has adventure in his blood; Cairo carries a secret and a broken heart. Will their quest end with them finding treasures, or will they find something far more valuable--the love they once shared?
A fast read. I don't want to give away any spoilers. A woman and man get married and then he leaves the next day and circumstances happen to where he can't get back to her. Until she finds him 5 years later and has a surprise for him.
