Honor Donovan is a shrewd businesswoman, yet she has been shut out of Donovan International by her father and four brothers. When her favorite brother Kyle vanishes, along with a fortune in stolen amber, Honor's questions are ignored by the Donovan males. Defying them, she heads to the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest in search of answers.

Honor needs a guide because she knows nothing about running a boat--and she knows nothing about Jake Mallory until he answers her ad. One of the things she doesn't know is that Jake is much more than a fishing guide. Until Kyle disappeared, Jake was brokering amber deals in the Baltic for Donovan International. Honor is completely unaware of the old wars, new politics, greed, and stolen amber that have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe.

Jake wants no part of the intrigue, or of a Donovan woman in his life, but he suspects the Donovans have set him up to take the fall for Kyle's treachery. The way Jake sees it, some Donovan is going to pay for his troubles, and it just may turn out to be Honor

Jake and Honor cast off on a journeys moldering with distrust, betrayal, vengeance... and temptation. A hunger grows between them that is as dangerous as the secrets they keep. Alone at sea, they pursue the stubborn mystery of the Amber Room, flee from relentless enemies, and fight against trusting each other. Yet when Honor and Jake dare to confide in one another, they face a final truth: the penalty for betrayal is death; the reward is a lifetime...together.

Review:

Honor Donovan needs help and she needs it fast. Her brother Kyle is missing, along with a fortune in rare Baltic Amber. Honor hires the lethally attractive fishing guide Jake Mallory to guide her through the waters surrounding the San Juan Islands where she believes Kyle to be. Little does Jake know the web of intrigue he has entered--or does he? Is Jake really the experienced guide he says he is or does he have his own agenda? And just how long can Honor resist the rugged charms of this mysterious fishing guide? The San Juan Islands of Puget Sound provide a lush backdrop for Elizabeth Lowell's enthralling novel. Nothing is as it seems in this gripping pageturner. And readers have more to look forward to in Jade Island, the continuation of the Donovan's story due out in the fall of 1998. --Maudeen Wachsmith

From the Back Cover:

New York Times bestselling author ELIZABETH LOWELL masterfully transports readers into a world of rare jewels and perilous intrigue -- in a novel of riveting suspense and explosive passions.

DEADLY SECRETS ARE BURIED ON AMbER BEACH . . .

Donovan International is a power to be reckoned with in the dazzling and cutthroat worldwide gem trade -- and is therefore a target for the murderous greed of unscrupulous competitors. Though a shrewd businesswoman, Honor Donovan has been effectively shut out of the dangerous family enterprise by the Donovan males -- until her favorite brother Kyle mysteriously vanishes along with a fortune in stolen amber.

Now, linking up with "fishing guide" Jake Mallory -- whose previous association with the Donovans has bred mistrust and suspicion -- Honor sets out for the Pacific Northwest in search of answers. But old wars and new politics have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe into a deadly game. And suddenly elusive trust can be the only salvation -- and death the penalty for deceit -- if Honor and Jake hope to survive the perilous intrigues surrounding a breathtaking lost Czarist treasure known as the Amber Room . . .
