PIECES OF EIGHT
THE LOST SOULS' TREASURE SERIES
From the author who whisked you away on a wild escapade in The Key West Escape Series comes a sexy, adventure-packed spin off. Follow Mitch Thompson and his team of misfits as they find danger, intrigue, and romance on the hunt for the legendary Lost Souls’ Treasure…
Former special ops aviator Griffin Dodge hasn’t been the same since he disobeyed a direct order and totaled a Blackhawk helicopter. After being separated from the military, he recovered from his injuries and took a job on a marine salvage crew based out of Key West. The only person he let himself get close to on the boat was a woman called “Bug” Martin, a waifish tomboy with a mean streak. They couldn’t have been more different – a former all-star golden boy from the mid-west and a French circus performer turned salvage diver – but they became best friends up until the day Griff’s high school sweetheart decided she wanted him back.
A year later, Bug still resents Griff for running off to Missouri and ghosting her and the crew. When her boss calls Griff into town for a favor, Bug wants to hit something. She settles on sucker-punching the selfish a-hole himself when he walks through the door. It doesn’t matter that he’s single again or that he’s sorry, she hates that she’s stuck flying shotgun to Martinique beside the guy who used to claim “quitting wasn’t in his vocabulary” before he abandoned their friendship and betrayed her trust.
The trip was supposed to take two days tops. Just enough time to retrieve the missing pages of a diary that could help lead the crew to The Lost Souls’ Treasure, but nothing is ever easy in Bug’s world. When the deal with the artifact collector goes south, Bug and Griff are forced to flee up the side of a volcano where the lava isn’t the only thing about to bubble over. The tension between them erupts into an unexpected night of passion that leaves them both questioning what comes next.
Griff starts to wonder if settling down in the suburbs still fits the man he’s become, while Bug isn’t sure if she’s willing to open her guarded heart to the only man who’s ever broke it.
When a rival treasure hunter hellbent on finding the treasure first nabs Bug and another crew member, Griff realizes the future won’t matter, if he can’t bring his best friend home alive.

and Treasure hunting adventure... [This] book is a vacation!" - Anita, Goodreads
"I'm always excited when Tricia Leedom comes out with a new book -- and THRILLED that this is the first of a new series! I want to know what happens to everyone in the book.... An exciting overarching storyline [where] I can't wait to see what happens! It's definitely hot <3 and action-packed!

"As a Floridian myself, I am such a fan of Tricia’s Key West Series (SO GOOD!). So when I heard about her new series I was so excited to grab my copy - and man, was it just as amazing as her previous books! “Bug” and Griff’s chemistry is undeniable and the humor was so delightfully written. I truly CANNOT wait until the next book comes out - I may have to reread The Key West Escape Series just to hold me over."
