Overview

Her reputation was trashed. He'd helped ruin it. Now he needed her knowledge. A trap...or the chance of a lifetime?

Archaeologist Veronica Bright believed some myths were real, from the Ark of the Covenant to Pandora's Box. Her theories made her the laughingstock of the scientific community, so when she got a lead on the legendary Midas Stone, nothing could stop her—not even having to team up with the arrogant Dr. Simon Owens, the very man who'd helped destroy her career.

But they weren't the only ones after the stone. The legend ignited a cutthroat race that would take them from the catacombs of the Vatican to the temples of Greece. Now Veronica's greatest adventure could be her downfall—for the very thing that could redeem her could also destroy her....

Meet the Author

Sharron McClellan always wanted to be a writer. There were two things she had always loved: writing and science. In college, she thought about being a marine biologist, but there was the whole shark issue. Instead, she discovered the joys of playing in the dirt—a profession more commonly known as archaeology. For years, she focused on excavating ancient sites that included projectile points, burn pits and the occasional burial.

But her focus came back to writing when she took a position during the archaeological off-season and ended up answering phones for a cruise line. It was during that time that she took to reading romance. It wasn't long before she fell in love with the genre and returned to her first love—writing. Two years later, she finished her first book—which she now only brings out when she wants a giggle. Two years after that, she sold her second book and become a full-fledged writer.

Today, Sharron lives in Texas, writes full time and dabbles in archaeology. She loves cats but doesn't share her small abode with any since she adores travel and doesn't think it would be fair to the small darlings. She believes in hard work, patience, and swears that her Muse spends most of her time in the bar down the street drinking gin and tonic with extra lime.

    Delightful romantic fantasy thriller

    In New York, archeologist Simon Owens visits Discovery Incorporated to discuss a find with Veronica Bright, a woman who hates him since he and his peers devastated her paper on some myths being verbal history. Though unwelcome by her, Simon shows Veronica a gold mouse and MRI documentation that proves the object was once alive. He now believes that the Midas Stone exists and can be found if one can find the Eye of Artemis. He has come to Veronica, who mentioned the Eye of Artemis in that debunked paper, because he now believes in the Midas touch.................... Her sister Alyssa verifies that the mouse once lived, but is now pure gold inside and out. Though she has no reason to trust him, Veronica teams up with Simon; they head to the Vatican where she first found a codex referring to the Eye of Artemis. As she and Simon work together, their attraction reignites, but her former boyfriend Michael, who betrayed her in Brazil, has plans to steal her project...................... THE MIDAS TRAP is a delightful romantic fantasy thriller that grips the audience from the moment Veronica confronts Michael over an urn and Simon over his golden find, and never slows down until the final golden touch. The story line is fast-paced sort of like a modern day Indiana Jones meets ancient mythology, but the cast seems genuine amidst the escapades. Veronica is a delight wondering whether she can trust any male besides her dad and her brother-in-law while her sibling worries for her safety. Sharron McClellan furbishes a wonderful rendering of the Midas Touch that is a pure gold winner for sub-genre fans................. Harriet Klausner
