Desperate, she calls Archer Donovan, a silent partner in Pear Co... more »ve, her late husband's pearl farm venture. He might help her... if the price is right.
Archer Donovan would rather forget he'd ever heard of Pearl Cove... its memories of living on the dark side, the soul-numbing certainty that there was no law, no justice, no mercy; just hunters and the hunted. That life taught him to trust no one but family. But when Hannah McGarry calls in an old debt Archer is back in the game. And at his side in pursuit of the stolen fortune is a woman he shouldn't want, yet cannot resist... a woman who may know more than she's telling about her husband's death... and more than is safe to know about the dark and elusive black pearls. With deadly competitors on their tails, Archer and Hannah race through uncharted waters in search of the fabulous Black Trinity. And the closer they come to finding the coveted pearls, the closer they come to danger and death... and to each other.« less
Another good story spread out just a wee bit too much, but it's still a fast read. Though I found myself wanting to smack Our Heroine into understanding that Our Hero wasn't a bad guy and she was about to lose out on a great love. And of course I learned a lot about pearls.
