Overview

This book was originally published under the title Rattled.

A legendary treasure hunt in the dramatic – and deadly – New Mexico desert....

The lost Victorio Peak treasure is the stuff of legends – a heretic Spanish priest's gold mine, made richer by the spoils of bandits and an Apache raider.

When Erin, a shy history professor, uncovers a clue that may pinpoint the lost treasure cave, she prepares for adventure. But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she's not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy?

Erin isn't sure she can trust Drew with her heart, but she'll need his help to track down the treasure. She heads into the New Mexico wilderness with her brainy best friend Camie and a feisty orange cat. The wilderness holds its own dangers, from wild animals to sudden storms. Plus, the sinister men hunting Erin are determined to follow her all the way to the treasure, no matter where the twisted trail leads. Erin won't give up an important historical find without a fight, but is she ready to risk her life--and her heart?

Just how far will Erin go to find the treasure and discover what she's really made of?

"The story has it all--action, romance, danger, intrigue, lost treasure, not to mention a sizzling relationship...."

"The action never stopped .... It was adventure and romance at its best."

"I couldn't put this book down. You'll love it."

Fans of Mary Stewart, Barbara Michaels, and Terry Odell will enjoy these stories of love in the wild, from a New Mexico Book Award-winning author.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite The Mad Monk’s Treasure (Southwest Treasure Hunters) by Kris Bock is a romantic suspense story. Erin is on the hunt for the Victorio Peak treasure, a lost treasure hidden by a heretic Spanish priest. Erin isn’t a bold and brash hunter; she’s just a quiet, shy history professor. She finds a clue that could lead to the location of the lost treasure and prepares to go find it with her best friend Camie. However, it seems that someone else wants that treasure and leaves Erin for dead in a ditch after a hit and run. Helicopter pilot Drew is a handsome stranger to the town. He saves Erin from certain death but she can’t work out if he is one of the good guys or not. She does need his help – and his helicopter – to get her and Camie to the New Mexico wilderness. Once there, she and her friend find themselves fighting wild storms, wildlife, and men who are after the same treasure. Erin isn’t giving up though, and she won’t let the treasure fall into the wrong hands without a fight. The Mad Monk’s Treasure (Southwest Treasure Hunters) by Kris Bock is packed full of everything you could wish for in one book – action, danger, romance, treasure and mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, the plot was well thought out, and the characters were written in a way that made me feel as though I knew them personally. I felt as though I were living the story with them – and let’s not forget the cat! It is an exciting story, very descriptive and exceptionally well written, with plenty of action and lots of twists and turns to keep a reader on their toes. I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series!

I couldn't put this book down. The action is fast, the characters are believable, and the sexy helicopter pilot blew me away. Between the romance and the adventure (not to mention the runaway horse), this book is great! You have to read this book!
