    Fun in the Caribbean and Treasure to Boot!

    It's great to read a modern-day treasure hunting story, especially when the characters are cool people you would like to be your friends, but each with their own personality. The treasure hunting aspect on the high seas is engrossing--not sugar-coated yet exciting, but not more so than the heat that springs up between the lifetime treasure hunter and the marine archeologist he's saddled with--and who's afraid of the water. Great, engrossing read, one of those books that makes you forget what time it is! Awesome book from a debut author.

    I couldn't put it down

    Treasure was a great read from cover to cover with characters you can't help but fall in love with. It takes you on a fast paced treasure hunt with trouble around every corner, and love just beyond reach. I loved this book!

    Treasure is a Gem

    Sun, surf and a stud ¿ what more could a land-locked girl want? In her debut novel, Treasure, Helen Brenna delivers action, adventure and romance set in the Caribbean. Treasure brings together treasure hunter Jake and marine archeologist Annie in a journey to find the wreck of the Spanish galleon Concha and its legendary treasure. Jake has been seeking that elusive treasure all his life. Annie wants to find the wreck, too, but instead of plundering its treasure, she desperately needs to return something -- a cursed cross that has caused nothing but tragedy. It¿s not love at first sight, not by a long shot. Annie bends the truth to get hired on Jake¿s crew, but Jake has little use for a scholar who¿s afraid of the water. They don¿t know it at first, but both Annie and Jake are wounded souls, suffering memories of loved ones who died in diving accidents. They have taken different approaches to dealing with/avoiding the pain. Jake has thrown himself into his work on the seas, while Annie got as far away from the ocean as she could, moving to Chicago. The boat¿s close quarters exposes the couple¿s undeniable physical attraction and that lead to delicious sexual tension. They¿re hot for each other, but neither one thinks it could be long term. Involvement with a treasure hunter is the last thing Annie needs. She wants stability ¿ a house with a white picket fence, not the kind that floats. Jake¿s not about to abandon the sea. Treasure hunting is in his blood. A rival captain bent on claiming the Concha¿s treasure and a traitor aboard Jake¿s boat give the story a well-developed suspense plot. Between sabotaged systems on the boat going haywire and an impending hurricane, the success of their mission and their very lives are threatened. A cast of supporting characters enriches the story and Brenna¿s skillful descriptions of the life aquatic put you squarely in the setting without slowing the action with excess technical details. Treasure is a page turner, to be sure. Brenna matches the story¿s ever increasing drama and suspense by upping the stakes in Jake and Annie¿s relationship. They face their fears, learn to sacrifice and discover the greatest treasure of all ¿ love. Like the ocean itself, this story holds many secrets, but you don¿t have to get wet to explore them ¿ unless you read in the tub. By any measure, Treasure is a gem.

    The pleasure of Treasure

    A great escape! I wanted to read this book in one delicious sitting, but other obligations got in my way. So I snatched reading sessions where I could find them. When I wasn't reading Treasure, I was thinking about the story, the characters and the unfolding adventure and romance. If you're looking for a fun, suspenseful and satisfying read, help yourself to Treasure.
