Danielle Almasi-Epperson’s parents were killed in a tragic car accident when she was eight years old, leaving her world famous, Egyptologist grandfather to raise her in their stead. While she had the pleasure of growing up on archaeological digs, he never believed that the field was a woman’s place. All she’s ever dreamed of is adventure and the kind of love her parents shared.
Jareth Riley was the boy in the tent next door to Danielle’s at every dig she could remember while growing up. Her grandfather and his father labeled him a troublemaker from day one. So, when Danielle and Jareth fall in love and lose their virginity to each other, it takes no time at all for her grandfather to ship her off to Harvard.
Ten years later, she’s working as a curator at a museum and he’s a treasure hunter. When he shows up on her doorstep asking for help to find a lost artifact with supposed mystical powers, she can’t help but say yes. In no time at all, they’re on the run from mad men with guns and rekindling the romance that had never quite died. Will they be able to restore the lost treasure to the rightful owners, or will they destroy their chance at happiness or lose their lives in the attempt?

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT LOST TREASURE:
Michelle Monkou, USA Today’s HEA Blog — Why you should read it: Welcome to the world of the treasure hunter. Lost Treasure by Paige Prince hits with a nostalgic tone that reminds us of our lovable hero Indiana Jones and treasure hunter Benjamin Gates in National Treasure.
Make no mistake, Prince brings her interpretation and originality to the hunter/academic romantic match-up. With an interesting whodunit storyline, along with a race against time (and countries) to find the stolen treasure, suspense is high and the romance is spicy-HAWT to make things interesting.
At the end of the day, Jareth is sexy and a hero.
