From #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Nora Roberts comes an exciting tale that takes readers to the depths of the Caribbean...and the heights of passion and suspense.
Marine archeologist Tate Beaumont has a passion for treasure-hunting. Over the years, she and her father have uncovered many fabulous riches, but one treasure has always eluded them: Angelique's Curse--a jeweled amulet heavy with history, dark with legend, and tainted with blood. In order to find this precious artifact, the Beaumonts reluctantly form a partnership with salvagers Buck and Matthew Lassiter.
Having to share this dream is more than Tate can bear, but she has little choice. As the Beaumonts and Lassiters pool their resources to locate Angelique's Curse, the Caribbean waters darken with shadowy deceptions and hidden threats. Their partnership is placed in jeopardy when Matthew refuses to share information--including the truth behind his father's mysterious death several years earlier. For now, Tate and Matthew continue their uneasy alliance--until danger and desire begin to rise to the surface...
