Synopsis (Goodreads):
One former Navy SEAL. One adventurous photographer. One lost jungle temple.

Former Navy SEAL Callum Ward has one motto--live life to the fullest. He saw the worst of war and lost good friends, but now he works for Treasure Hunter Security. When he's not providing security for archeological digs and invaluable museum exhibits, or off on daring treasure hunts, he's rock climbing, racing, or skiing. Nothing--and no one--has ever tempted him to slow down...until on an expedition into the Cambodian jungle, he has to work with one opinionated, prickly photographer, Dani Navarro. But soon their straight-forward trek to find a lost temple turns deadly, and Cal and Dani find themselves under attack from a dangerous black-market antiquities ring prepared to kill.

Dani Navarro lives for her photography. For years, it's been her escape from her family and their frivolous lifestyle, affairs, and dramas. With her camera in hand, she travels the world, capturing other people's moments and avoiding messy entanglements. At first, she thinks Cal Ward is no different from all the other men she's known, but as their expedition turns into a hazardous dash through uncharted jungle, she uncovers a tough, intelligent, and sexy protector. Together, they must outwit their pursuers and find not only a lost temple...but a priceless, powerful artifact.
Thoughts on Uncharted: I'm not quite sure how I ended up reading this series out of order, but so it goes. For the record, the out of order thing didn't take away from the story AT ALL, so I will confidently say this is workable as a stand alone.

Enough about my weird reading habits, though. Let's talk about Callum and Dani. He's trying his hardest to live life to the fullest to honor his fallen friend. Which means hook-ups and no commitment, with a side of adrenaline-producing adventures. On the other side of the coin, Dani has no intention of getting involved with a man who likes to hit it and quit it. Sure, there's an undeniable attraction between them, but she's strong enough to say no and walk away.

Until she isn't. Or maybe it's less about being strong enough and more about being in the moment. She likes him, he likes her. Things happen.

Then some unscrupulous bad guys drop in and suddenly Cal and Dani are on the run and in danger. Surviving dangerous situations is always a good time to celebrate being alive, right? And the best way to celebrate? Getting nekkid!

Anywho. Fun, steamy, and chock full of adventure and mysterious ruins. It doesn't matter if it's the desert or the jungle, the folks from THS get the job done. And find romance. *thumbs up*
