PIECES OF EIGHT
THE LOST SOULS' TREASURE SERIES
When treasure hunter Mitch Thompson culls together a crew of eight misfits to help him find the legendary Lost Souls’ Treasure, the first person he approaches is former SEAL Team leader Luke Gage. Luke was an All-American athlete in high school and the golden boy of his small Texas hometown until his high school sweetheart betrayed him and derailed his life. To everyone’s shock, he walked away from a full football scholarship to Texas A&M and enlisted in the Navy. A decade later, and four tours of duty under his belt, he’s a different man hoping to get rich quick so he can buy the boat of his dreams and sail around the world.
Austin-based meteorologist Hannah Frisk is a star in her field. The wealthy, spoiled daughter of a former Texas state senator is hoping to follow in her father’s footsteps when he suddenly disappears after racking up a huge gambling debt. Hoping to prevent a scandal that could end her political aspirations, she must find her father who’s sequestered himself somewhere in the Caribbean. She flies to Aruba to convince her ex-flame Luke Gage to take the money she’s offered for his assistance, but he turns her down flat. She’s surprised to discover the fresh-faced boy she once loved has turned into a big, brawny, incredibly sexy but guarded man. His aloofness will make getting close to him a challenge, but Hannah wants him back, and Hannah always get what she wants.
When Mitch convinces Luke to take the job in order to fund their expedition, the Salty Dog crew along with Hannah sets sail to locate the wayward senator and begin their search for the treasure. They soon discover K-PAL INC, a ruthless group of corporate treasure hunters, are after the same booty. Worse than modern day pirates, K-PAL has the money and equipment to back them up.
Hannah gains Luke’s respect when she discovers the first clue in their treasure hunt. But she begins to wonder if she will ever be able to navigate through the storm of Luke’s resentment and find her way back into his heart.
If Luke can’t learn to trust Hannah again, their relationship, like the treasure, just might be lost to the sea forever.
