DESIRE RUNS DEEP
Somewhere off the coast of Greece, a king s ransom in gold, emeralds, and silver coins lies waiting at the bottom of the sea. Finding this ancient treasure would be a dream come true for marine archeologist Calista West. But that s not why she s here. She didn t climb aboard Jonah Cutter s magnificent yacht seeking fortune or fame. She s come for revenge against the sexiest, most seductive, modern-day pirate she s ever encountered
Like his famous half brothers, Jonah is a master of salvaging ships and driving women mad with his movie-star looks and raw animal magnetism. Tall, dark, and devastating, he manages to make Callie forget her mission. Every moment they share under the hot Mediterranean sun is an erotically-charged adventure neither can resist. But when Callie discovers what he s really after the lost city of Atlantis is it too late to change the course of her heart or go all in with the lover of her dreams?"

Panting lust and an undersea mystery are, sadly, not enough to save Adairs weak fourth Cutter Cay contemporary romance (after Vortex). Dr. Callie West is a marine archeologist who signed on to Jonah Cutters expedition near Greece with ulterior motives. She presents herself as married, though shes actually widowed; the last thing she wants is for the enigmatic, darkly handsome Jonah to know shes availableor to find out her true purpose. Jonah battles inner demons, trying to resist his attraction to the very married archeologist whose services he secured from under his archrivals nose. However, neither of them can deny the chemistry thats building during the long days and longer nights in an almost magical place. The heat is sidelined by the possible discovery of the lost city of Atlantis, and by threats from a mysterious group of people determined to undermine their salvage efforts. While the elements surrounding Atlantiss discovery are fascinating, Adair relies much too heavily on sexual yearnings to propel the story, at the expense of an otherwise solid plot. Two-dimensional, sex-obsessed characters dont stand up to the wonder of research and history. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Whalen Agency. (Mar.)
