For reporter Hope Sinclair, writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island should be her big break. Yet Hope can't help feeling she's been hand-picked for this job for all the wrong reasons. Someone wants Hope out of New York - and off a story that could blow a corruption case wide open. But if they think sending her to paradise will shut her up, they've got another thing coming. Treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL Conner Reese isn't happy to have Hope along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity, nor does he want a gorgeous red head driving his crew - and himself - to distraction. But there's something else. Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely.
