Spicy romance compensates for weak suspense in the third installment of bestseller Martin's Sinclair Sisters series (after Midnight Sun and Desert Heat). In the midst of investigating the condemnation of a city apartment building, Manhattan newspaper reporter Hope Sinclair gets pulled by her editor from that assignment and sent to Pleasure Island, near Jamaica, to chronicle the efforts of a treasure hunting team searching for priceless cargo from a Spanish ship that sank 400 years earlier. Near Pleasure Island, Hope boards the Conquest, the ship from which divers are conducting their search. Conner "Conn" Reese, treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL, is the primary player in the expedition. The close quarters of the Conquest serve to throw together Hope and Conn, two people jaded from previous disastrous relationships. Sexy romance sizzles between the pair in numerous love scenes. Unfortunately, the plot involving Conn's financial partner, who warns Hope away from continuing her research into the New York apartment house, is both predictable and underdeveloped, and the suspenseful action promised by the back cover copy never gets off the ground.
Pretty good book. I read it in one weekend. It's about a writer who is doing a story about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure when she meets an island hottie who is supposed to keep her safe from danger. It's a little bit romancey but not too much.
This was a very good book from Kat Martin. There was a main plot and a few sub-plots going on as well. The heroine, Hope Sinclair, gets hot on the trail of a housing scandal so her employer gets instructions to send her off on another assignment. She winds up with a group of treasure hunters in Jamaica. The head of the group is Conner, a hunky Navy Seal that Hope falls for...but spends most of her time trying to dodge him.
When they finally get together the sparks really fly. However, when they start uncovering some artifacts on the ocean floor, there's also a robbery and Conner gets hurt and ends up in the hospital.
It was a quick read. The romance was hot, and the characters memorable. Try it. You'll like it!
Final book of the trilogy. Really good book.
Reporter Hope Sinclair is writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island. Treasure hunter Conner Reese isn't happy to have her along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity or and tempting redhead on board, driving his crew and himself to distraction. But as a former Navy SEAL Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely.
THE CHARACTERS ENGAGED ME RIGHT AWAY. IT IS WELL WRITTEN WITH THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF SUSPENSE AND ROMANCE
Great romantic mystery!!! Loved reading this!
Great series. Three sisters, three different adventures. This one has the thrill of treasure hunting, plus romance & throw in the bad guys. Loved it.
DEEP BLUE is a fairly good romantic suspense tale, with a slightly reaching plot. A lot of information about treasure hunting and Mel Fisher's astounding hunt for the Spanish treasure ship Atocha is thrown in.
A reporter bites off more than she can chew and winds up in trouble with some totally unscrupulous characters. With the help of friends and a sexy treasure hunter, it appears that the good guys will at least pull even with the baddies.
I might have rated the book a bit higher if I had read the previous two books, but the story is perfectly intelligible without prior reading.
From back cover:
For reporter Hope Sinclair, writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island should be her big chance. But Hope can't help feeling that she's been hand-picked for this job for all the wrong reasons. Someone wants Hope out of New York and off the story that could blow a corruption case wide open. If they think sending her to paradise will shut her up, they've got another think coming. Hope's subject, treasure hunter Conner Reese, isn't happy to have her along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity, nor does he want an incredibly tempting redhead on board, driving his crew--and himself--to distraction. But there's something else, too. As a former Navy SEAL, Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely...
Now, in the deceptively serene beauty of a sultry Caribbean paradise, Hope and Conner are moving ever closer to finding a priceless Incan relic, and diving deeper into waters more treacherous than they could possibly imagine...
I'm eager to read the other two in the series now.
Great read. one of a set of 3; Romance, mystery, love, what more could one want.
Hope Sinclair goes along with a treasure hunter. Reese doesn't want her along but
he can sense extreme danger ........
The answer lies in the deep blue
