How does a heart, once damaged and broken, learn to overcome the pain and love again? This is the issue that confronts the hero and heroine of this novel, Alex and Francie. Both have been very hurt by previous relationships and find it difficult to trust. Yet they are thrown together in an archaeological dig in Greece, with Francie the prime suspect in the theft of multiple artifacts from digs. Alex has been sent to investigate, and try to determine if Francie is indeed the thief she is suspected to be. Add into the story all the interpersonal drama that is inherent in a dig, as well as several layers of double crosses and the whole mystery of who is the thief, and you have a fantastically fun story that starts fast and never slows down. The story itself is very creative and adventurous, and could easily be a much longer novel. However, in all honesty, it works very well at its present length. The characters are very well thought out and highly perceptive, and this novel could easily have a spinoff or a sequel novel. This is a great read for just about anyone.
Someone has been stealing priceless Greek artifacts and it's Alex Leonidis' job to uncover the thief. His prime suspect is beautiful archaeological graduate student, Francie Vasileiou. His plan is to join in an archaeological dig and catch her in the act. All he has to do is keep his mind on his job, and not on the way his lovely suspect warms his heart. He's learned the hard way not to trust fragile-looking women who seem to need his help.
Francie wants to get her PhD and become an archaeologist, like her famous father. The sudden invitation to participate in a dig on the beautiful Greek island of Paros is a wonderful opportunity. She has no time for distractions like Alex, the handsome Project Director. Experi-ence has taught her to stay clear of handsome, charismatic Greek men.
On the shores of the Aegean Sea, Alex and Francie work togeth-er, searching for treasures from Greece's past. While pursuing their goals, they discover some of the truths they had believed to be carved in stone may have been flawed.
