Series: Treasure Hunter Security #8
Darcy Ward has sold her soul to the devil. Okay, not quite the devil, but she did agree to work with Agent Arrogant and Annoying—aka Special Agent Alastair Burke of the FBI’s Art Crime Team to lay a trap for infamous black-market antiquities ring, Silk Road.
Darcy loves shoes, computers, caffeine, and working at her family business, Treasure Hunter Security. The only thing missing is her dream of a once-in-a-lifetime love, like her parents share, and a man who’ll put her first. She’s not so crazy about Silk Road trying to kill her family and friends, nor is she fond of an order-giving FBI agent and his distracting cologne. Using a trio of cursed diamonds as bait, she’s working hard to set a trap for Silk Road in the Dashwood Museum, but as the black-market thieves escalate their attempts to stop Darcy, she finds herself swept into Alastair’s strong, protective arms.
Alastair Burke is driven by vengeance. He’s dedicated his life to taking down Silk Road and its mysterious leader, the Collector, and now he finally has his chance. He can’t allow anything to distract him—especially not a sassy, smart woman who tests every bit of his control. But as the opening gala of the cursed diamonds exhibit approaches, the thieves target him and Darcy with a series of deadly attacks…and Alastair realizes he’ll do anything to keep her safe.
With the FBI and the former SEALs of Treasure Hunter Security at their backs, Darcy and Alastair are caught up in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, and their fierce attraction. But with lives on the line, Alastair will find himself caught between his desire for revenge and keeping the woman he’s falling for alive.
Romantic Suspense, Adventure: With this book I say goodbye to the Treasure Hunter Security saga, although I have already learned that there is at least one spin-off that I should check. The saga has been a lovely surprise, even though there are a couple of books that are better forgotten. Overall, it is a perfect set to kill some lazy time. No brain power is needed to enjoy these stories.
Fernzy, Teach: Those two badges describe perfectly my favourite parts of this saga. This final book hasn’t been an exception. I would even dare to say that this one is on the same level as the first two or three books. You will find non-stop action scenes that sometimes makes sense and othertimes doesn’t, but that is not something that should stop you from purchasing it. It also has several cultural tidbits, but nothing as yummy as the data we got during the first books of this saga. Nevertheless, it is quite welcome.
And after several stories with annoying romantic development and crazy and unsafe sex scenes, it has been a pleasure to follow the love blossoming between Darcy and Burke. Well paced, funny and vanilla settings for the naughty scenes. Just what the doctor ordered!
