Aztec gold artifacts from the 16th Century, a fake treasure map, and cryptic clues leading to a cave in the Canadian wilderness— 

• Feuding family members • A suspicious death and surfeit of suspects • A sailboat trip up the Inside Passage and . . . a stowaway cat 

Two cousins get together to investigate the death of a favorite uncle and to honor his legacy by fulfilling his dream to recover Aztec gold. They are thwarted in their efforts by greedy family members, a jumble of challenging clues, a prank from the grave, and unscrupulous treasure seekers. 

What begins with a letter from the deceased leads to a wilderness adventure and ends with revealed secrets and a confession.

About the Book:

The moment I laid eyes on Penny, her innocent, submissive nature called to my dominant side. I immediately volunteered to guide her exploration into my dark and decadent world.

I’m also playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with an obsessed psychopath whose goal is to destroy me. When my worlds threaten to collide, I’m forced to call it quits between us.

Soon I discover I’m too late, and she’s caught in the crossfire. Now, I’ll do everything in my power to protect the woman I’m falling for.

Read an Excerpt:

“Who do we have here?” A deep, gravelly voice at my right drew my attention. My breath hitched and my body heated when I spotted the sexiest man I’d ever laid eyes on. I’d always been a sucker for a man with salt and pepper hair. Damn, he filled out that navy t-shirt nicely. My eyes traveled his full length before returning to his face. I flushed at the amused half-smile he wore at my perusal. It took me a moment to remember he’d asked me a question.

“Pe-Penny,” I stuttered, almost breathless as the heat in my face intensified. I don’t remember blushing this much before in my life. Fake it ’til you make it was my mantra. I stood a little taller and attempted to gain the confidence I typically displayed with chauvinistic surgeons.

“I’m Marcus.” His secret smile remained as he reached out to shake my hand. When I placed mine in his, he squeezed it firmly, and I thought I felt his thumb gently caress mine, but he pulled away before I could be sure.

“Nice to meet you.” The words came out a little shaky.

“So, what brings you out to play with us today?” His voice dropped suggestively.

Maintaining my barely-there confidence, I answered his question. “I’m curious about domination and submission. I figured this was the best place to gain some knowledge.”

“Knowledge about what?” Marcus asked, showing true interest.

Everything. I wanted to know what it felt like to give up control.

To just feel and not have to think.

To be dominated.

To have someone fulfill needs I didn’t even know I had.

I wanted to find my happily ever after, damn it. Sadly, I didn’t know how to express any of this.

I shrugged my shoulders. “Whatever someone will teach me.”

“Sweetness,” he murmured, “I’d be happy to teach you anything you want to know.”

Read an Excerpt:

“You’ve never been kissed before, have you?”

Technically, I’d never been touched before. I’d never had anyone look at me like this before, let alone kiss me.

“What’s it to you?”

He furrowed his brows and dropped his hands to his sides. He watched me with curiosity as I brought my arms around my belly. Tears stung my eyes because I knew he’d say something cruel again. I knew I was going to have to deal with the fallout come Monday morning. I made to leave, but he blocked me, caging me in again.

“Let me show you how.”

What? As in, teach me? “Why?”

“Because I want to.”

He wanted to kiss me? Or teach me? “Why?”

“Tell me to go to hell.” He unraveled my arms from around my body and brought my palm to his face. “Say the words. Enzo. Go. To. Hell.” He enunciated every word.

The raspy quality of his voice was so sexy and hypnotizing; I wasn’t going anywhere.

“What happens if I do?” I moved my fingers ever so slightly. I was afraid if I did more, he’d shut me out again like before.

“Then you’re free to go.”
