Celeste Jordan knows nothing about gems so she questions why she sees a mark on hers that no one else can see. Rock Foster, a mineralogist, "rockhound", is skeptical. As a scientist he doesn't believe in legends, but he'd heard of crystals that hold knowledge for a privileged few. Reluctantly, he agrees to take Celeste to the desert dig site where he found the gem. Little did the loner know his life would be turned upside down and that love would knock down his door.
As an image consultant, Celeste always looks her best. Dirt, sweat, and outdoor showers have never been a part of her life. But she's determined to get to the bottom of the mysterious gem and its affect on her, even if it means leaving the comforts of home for one night. Although attracted to the ruggedly handsome Rock, she knew nothing could come of it. They were each married to their careers and their worlds were miles apart. But when Mother Nature twists up a storm that changes all their plans, one night turns into another, then another...

Wonderful Book!! This is a wonderful book, I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this book through the website The Cheap Ebook. I have to say that Celeste and Rock's story was wonderful.I was captured from the first chapter and couldn't wait to finish the book to see how it eds. I love all of the characters especially Celeste, Rock and Aunt Clara. This is a great love story that had me rooting for them through the whole book because they had such passion for each other. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I have to say that I am looking to reading more. I hope Blanche writes more books with the same characters, maybe a spin off with Aunt Clara. If you love a good romance then you need to read this book! A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
I enjoyed this book. A very nice romance with a hint of the paranormal. The characters were likable and engaging. Their story kept me interested and engaged til the last page. The mineralolgy background was interested and added some depth. The review above reflects my own opinions and was not influenced by the free review copy provided to me.
