A grumpy smuggler meets a bumbling professor and treasure is found.
An explorer at heart, former university professor Phillip Singleton’s adventures have only taken place in his imagination—until recently. Exploring the Cornish coast to research a travel book, he encounters a living example of a pirate archetype. Dark-haired, black-bearded Carne Treleaven might have been hewn from the very rock his name describes, and Phillip is eager to discover more.
Carne has little patience for the awkward, dreamy professor, an outsider who must be steered away from local secrets. He agrees to serve as a guide to seaside caves where smugglers once operated only to keep Phillip away from more recent activity.
As personalities clash, secrets unfold, and riches are revealed, the two polar opposites find the point where their similarities lay. Carne’s old beliefs are shattered by his attraction to a man and he must decide if he’s willing to take a huge step outside his familiar life and into a brand new world.

Another amazing Dee/Devon collaboration. It's no secret that I'm a bit of a history buff so historicals will always pique my interest but if I wasn't, these tales that Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon create would definitely convert me. Carne's life is exactly as he expected and he's okay with that but then he comes across Phillip and everything changes. I have always tried to be a positive person but Phillip's spirit borders on giddiness that is infectious because I found myself smiling more than once. Be it fate or circumstance, Phillip and Carne's lives will forever change but you'll have to read for yourself to see whether it's for good or bad and I highly recommend you do.
