Synopsis (Goodreads):
One former Navy SEAL. One dedicated archeologist. One secret map to a fabulous lost oasis.

Finding undiscovered treasures is always daring, dangerous, and deadly. Perfect for the men of Treasure Hunter Security. Former Navy SEAL Declan Ward is haunted by the demons of his past and throws everything he has into his security business--Treasure Hunter Security. Dangerous archeological digs - no problem. Daring expeditions - sure thing. Museum security for invaluable exhibits - easy. But on a simple dig in the Egyptian desert, he collides with a stubborn, smart archeologist, Dr. Layne Rush, and together they get swept into a deadly treasure hunt for a mythical lost oasis. When an evil from his past reappears, Declan vows to do anything to protect Layne.

Dr. Layne Rush is dedicated to building a successful career--a promise to the parents she lost far too young. But when her dig is plagued by strange accidents, targeted by a lethal black market antiquities ring, and artifacts are stolen, she is forced to turn to Treasure Hunter Security, and to the tough, sexy, and too-used-to-giving-orders Declan. Soon her organized dig morphs into a wild treasure hunt across the desert dunes. Danger is hunting them every step of the way, and Layne and Declan must find a way to work not only find the treasure but to survive.

Note to readers: This action-adventure romance contains a lot of action (think treasure hunts and wild chases across the desert), cool offsiders (sexy former Navy SEALs) and a steamy romance (lots of sexy times between a former SEAL and a smart archeologist). This is treasure hunting Navy SEAL style. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!
Thoughts on Undiscovered: Buried treasure (of a sort), brainy women, and the men who find them irresistible. OH, YEAH. This book has those things. Also, danger, sandstorms, and unexpected kisses.

So. Layne and Declan. They don't necessarily hit it off in their first encounter. Layne's a wee bit opinionated about antiquities (THEY BELONG IN A MUSEUM) and Declan is willing to bend the rules if it means getting the job done. Given the bad guy angling for Layne's find, the job soon turns very personal. As in, Declan can't bear to see Layne hurt and he'll do anything he has to do to make sure she remains hale and hearty.

(Sexy times in the desert, people. YASSSSS!)

With a intriguing set of secondary characters (Declan's group gets a big nod of approval) and a great, big world to go hunting for treasure, I'm kinda excited to see where the next story takes us. Bring on the archaeological shenanigans!
