New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell plunges into the adventurous and deadly world of underwater treasure hunters in a heart-stopping tale that superbly combines atmosphere, action, romance, and suspense.
After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has left her family's diving and marine recovery business drowning in red ink. Now her brother pleads with her to come back to the island nation of St Vincent. Without Kate's financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.
Holden Cameron was addicted to the adrenaline rush of active duty—including narrowly surviving an underwater explosives accident. The last thing the former British military diver wants is to babysit a family of thieves on a tropical island—even if they are the world-famous Diving Donnellys. But in his new civilian job, Holden must investigate the suspicious activity surrounding a Donnelly dive to recover treasure from the ancient wreck of a pirate ship.
When equipment, treasure, and even divers begin to disappear, Kate and Holden form an uneasy alliance to uncover the truth. But the deeper they plummet into the mystery, the closer they come to each other. Soon they are sharing their deepest fears and darkest secrets—and a combustible chemistry too hot to ignore.

Rife with deep-sea diving and salvage terminology and interesting facts, Lowell’s latest tale of romantic suspense, after Reckless Love (2013), swirls around a grandfather and his grandchildren’s attempt to save the family’s treasure-recovery business as it sinks into the red. After watching her mother and father drown when she was a teen, accountant Kate reluctantly agrees to return to the Golden Bough, the primary vessel of the Diving Donnellys, when her grandfather and brother ask for her help. Arriving at the island of St. Vincent, she is appalled at how desperately her grandfather and brother need to fulfill their British government contract, and how distrusting the Brits are about their operation. In fact, they’ve sent retired diver Holden Cameron to oversee the Donnelly’s work, since the Brits suspect someone is stealing the gold and jewels the divers bring up. Added to the drama is a tropical storm that’s about to descend and shut down the dive. Lowell brings her reader-pleasing, heart-pounding gift for adventure and sizzling romance to the eerie depths of the ocean. --Pat Henshaw
