Two treasure hunters discover the ultimate prize is love.
When diver Jason Price’s oxygen tank fails during a hunt for sunken treasure, he knows he’s going to die.

Instead, she brings him up to the surface and gives him mouth-to-mouth…which turns into a life-affirming kiss.
Maris Collier doesn’t want to think about the hot kiss or the hotter man she’d saved—she thinks he’s irresponsible for not paying attention to his equipment while diving.
But they’re both looking for sunken treasure, and someone wants to stop them. As they are drawn deeper into danger, they know they need to trust each other with their secrets, their hearts, and their very lives.
