Overview

When Jack O'Conner finds a gold piece of eight off the Florida Keys with the partial coordinates to French pirate Jacques de Une Oue's sunken hoard of stolen Spanish doubloons etched upon it, he sets out to recover the sunken treasure. What ensues is a series of steamy romantic encounters and bitter personal betrayals, for the remaining two pieces of eight with coordinates on them belong to two women, Sandy Sequoia, a mid-level drug dealer from Miami, and Portia Pennington, the repressed daughter of an English merchant tycoon, both of whom Jack invites onto his sailboat to go with him in search of the Spanish doubloons, and with both of whom he falls in love. When the infamous Hundred-Years Storm arrives just as the three recover the treasure, they must decide between petty selfishness and their tentative love for one another.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Belinda In Concord, NC
I purchased this book today and wasn't able to put it down at all (well, just once to eat dinner). I really enjoy a good treasure hunt type of book that includes outrunning a monstrous storm, in this case Hurricane Andrew, love, lies, betrayal and redemption. Definitely a great book. Enjoy your trip in the calm waters of the Caribbean before the storm.

    Fantastic and authentic - you won't get bored!

    I love a good treasure hunting story and this one certainly fits the bill. Just like it says in the title, they are all tied up in this taut and fast-moving thriller. It's a very quick read and you'll feel drawn deeper into it the further you go. And if you like the idea of sailing the briny seas, this will give you that sense in a very real way. I love the way the author sets up the plot and then delivers with every chapter. It is a really good book!
