i just finished reading the arc of this, and for a first-time author, i was impressed.  can't say much, but this is one you will want to add to your wishlists!  just thought i would give all you paranormal lovers a heads-up.  :)

How funny you posted this!  I was just at the RT Convention Book Fair in Pittsburgh and someone else told me to check her out when this book comes out!  She has also written some harlequin intrigues but this is supposed to be her big break.  I was told it was along the lines of JR Ward - do you agree?

yes, i agree, susan.  very ward-ish.  in fact, j.r. ward was her critique partner.  :)  they have a similar style of building up the story with very muliple-facet characters and non-stop action.  ms. andersen has a great take on mayan history that is really interesting and new.  i think she will be an author that is in high demand.

I am definitely looking forward to reading it!  Have you read her earlier stuff?

no i haven't read any of the harlequins yet.  i may have to go look them up.  although, i have to think they are a very different style than this book.  i just can't picture the harlequins having as much grit or action in them, not to mention heartache.  :)  plus, this book is as much about the secondary characters as it is about the main couple (in that sense, it is very brotherhood-ish).  have you read them?
