Overview

Sexual tension accelerates the race to unravel a complicated puzzle in the latest romantic thriller from the New York Times bestselling “mistress of adrenaline” (Booklist).

An Ancient Legacy

Lately, the gods are not smiling on Isis Magee. How else can she explain the bizarre events that have led her on a relentless high-stakes chase from Seattle to London to Cairo in search of the elusive tomb of history’s beautiful and enigmatic queen Cleopatra?

A Hidden Treasure

Isis has only two leads: a fragmented trail of clues offered in rare moments of lucidity by her father, a once-respected archaeologist whose last dig ended in disaster, and the unique sixth sense of sexy Lodestone agent Connor Thorne.

The Passion of a Lifetime

Connor also encountered tragedy in the Egyptian desert not long ago, and as Isis pulls him deeper into her mission to restore her father’s reputation, he is secretly plotting a revenge of his own. Propelled across wild, untamed sands by vicious unknown forces, the duo is seduced into a labyrinth of secret chambers. When they fear they can go no further, they surrender to their incendiary desires and discover that the prize each separately seeks may be waiting at the end of the same dangerous road.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Adair’s fast-paced third Lodestone romantic thriller (after Hush and Afterglow) delivers a healthy dose of action, sensuality, and romance. Connor Thorne, on leave from MI5 following a terrible injury, is hired by Isis Magee, daughter of a prominent Egyptologist, to find what might be the lost tomb of Cleopatra. With his special forces training and psychometric ability to track where objects come from, and her intimate knowledge of her father’s work, it should be a snap, but old enemies want them dead, turning every step of the journey into a life-or-death struggle. Sizzling chemistry and adrenaline-charged action scenes propel the story, but the tension is hamstrung by the resolution mostly taking place offscreen. The ruthlessness and effectiveness of the antagonists vary depending on plot needs, but the erotic and romantic components make up for the occasional implausibility and convoluted schemes. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group. (Apr.)

    Sexy but Never Crude

    I love this book. The story could have continued for another 100 pages and I would have happily followed along. This is the best Lodestone book yet. I hope there are more. Cherry Adair writes exciting, sexy books without ever crossing the line into crude. No endless, boring sex scenes with little plot between them.

    If you want a good adventure with a love story, this is a book you should read.

    I spent my Spring break with Isis Magee and Connor Thorne. What a wild ride!!
    He's an awesome Lodestone Agent with the talent of being able to find the exact coordinates of where an object originates. He's also the man who is hired to help Isis find the Tomb of Cleopatra.If they find it, they will be able to prove her father wasn't lying when he said that he had found it.
    Unfortunately they aren't the only ones looking for it.
    This story is a fast paced and full of excitement.I could almost feel the hot sands of Egypt!! ( I closed my eyes during the hot sexy love scenes!) LOL!!!
    A perfect way to spend my Spring Break!

    This is the third book in the Lodestone series, and is just as good as the prior books. As usual it’s filled with action, adventure, suspense, and romance that kept my interest throughout the entire book.  

    Isis Magee has spent many occasions on digs with her archaeologist father, but he has not remembered much since right before his last dig. He has been trying to find Cleopatra’s tomb for a long time and now he only has two clues to give to Isis to its locations. Isis has decided to go after her father’s dream, but these two clues are not enough to find the tomb, so she heads to Lodestone asking for help in finding the location in Egypt. 

    Connor Thorne has been helping out at Lodestone and is the man who’s supposed to help Isis find the location of Cleo’s tomb. The last place he wants to be is in Egypt, there are enough bad memories to keep him away from there for a very long time, and he really doesn’t want to help restore her father’s reputation. Once he receives the information he needs he decides to go with Isis, but he doesn’t plan on getting into the danger that has followed them. What he’s not sure of once they arrive there is if they will be leaving.

    Feisty relentless heroine and reluctant sidelined MI5 hero play

    Feisty relentless heroine and reluctant sidelined MI5 hero play off each other beautifully. Grand adventure. Unbelievably good luck but then it's fictional, fun, and romance. I enjoy Chery's books and this one was right at the top of the heap. (Afterglow is my favorite to-date). Thanks Cherry for a colorful ride through Egypt and international thievery. It was a trip I will remember.
