One of a kind. Kat Martin's heroes are as rugged and tough as they come, but honor rules no matter how hot the temptation. . . 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.
