Deep in the Guatemalan jungle, a yearly event draws some of the top collectors of rare antiquities. The patrons of this event are an ensemble of the richest criminals in the world. Drug lords. Corrupt politicians. Eccentric CEO's. They are there for the sole purpose of getting their hands on illegal artifacts.
Mitch Hasslet, a war photojournalist relegated to a desk job, is the sole witness to a heist of Mayan artifacts. Recruited by the mysterious director of the Museum of Art and Antiquities, Mitch is sent to the last location the stolen shipment was tracked to. Guatemala. Acting as a museum staff photographer, Mitch joins a group of archaeologists. His goal is to locate the artifacts as swiftly as possible so that he can collect his compensation and get the hell out of the jungle.
Alexandra Langley is about to run out of funds. She has yet to discover the lost Mayan civilization she knows lurks in the rainforest. To achieve her grant, she will accept the museum's latest nuisance, Mitch Hasslet, and any other obstacle that is sent her way. Unsuccessful and desperate, Alex has decided to move the group to a portion of the jungle referred to as, "No Man's Land"—a sector where archaeological teams have ventured but never returned.
As Mitch and Alex inch towards passion, will their bond protect them in a jungle filled with deceit?
A spill in the rapids hauls two strangers into a harrowing and romantic adventure.
Chuck Borgas is ready to get back in the jungle. A lost city and a team of archeological students are waiting for him in Guatemala. He is waylaid at the airport by a bizarre woman who latches onto him like she's his long-lost buddy. Smoking hot women don't usually throw themselves at him. Ever. Finally ditching the stranger, he realizes she has left a bag behind. One glimpse into that sack and Chuck knows he has stepped into a heap of trouble.
Faith Sanders is part of a small task force returning smuggled artifacts to the Guatemalan government. Her team is ambushed by members of a drug cartel, but she manages to escape. Alone and determined to get the artifacts to their destination, she is forced to improvise as the cartel closes in on her. That improvisation lands her in the arms of a handsome stranger.
Realizing that she has jeopardized the man at the airport, Faith has to decide which is more important…saving his life, or completing her mission.
A mysterious coin leads two strangers on a daring journey to an uncharted island.
I am being followed…
That was the cryptic note that accompanied the ancient coin Zachary Selmon examined in his campus office. An archeology professor by day, and a numismatist, or collector of coins by night, Zach was puzzled by this piece of silver and worried about the old friend who sent it. Before he could even begin his inspection, a woman's scream pierces the empty halls of the university.
Art grad student, Gretchen Koter was too engrossed in studies to worry about the snowstorm that shut down Summerlin University. She had no life. Nowhere to be. But when an armed man appears in the doorway, demanding to know, "Where is the coin?" she did what she had to…screamed and ran.
Zach and Gretchen collide in the halls, an encounter that pits them together in a race to determine the origin of the coin. They are being followed. They are being hunted. And the only recourse is to rely on each other and embark on a daring journey to an arctic island that is not supposed to exist.
