I have a surprising book to share with you called Buried Threads written by Kaylin McFarren.
Rachel's mouth sagged. "You mean you're really a monk? But how's that possible? You're not even wearing a robe, and your hair..."
He simply smiled.
A disturbing prophecy sends a treasure hunting duo on an urgent race to rescue a country in Kaylin McFarren's heart pounding new novel, Buried Threads. Full of erotic suspense and wild adventures, this is one trip that readers will never forget!
Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen work together as the successful owners of a treasure hunting company. But a seemingly simple assignment-to track down a priceless gem that is believed to be buried in a shipwreck deep within the Sea of Japan-takes a startling, and dangerous, turn.
Faced with a monk's dark prophecy that a natural disaster will soon strike Japan, killing millions, Rachel and Chase must embark on the mission of a lifetime in order to uncover the three cursed samurai swords that can avert the catastrophe.
Chaos ensues as their adventure takes them from shark infested waters and creepy caves to haunted hidden tombs and a confrontation with Yakuza gang members.
Time is running out as the prophecy's day of reckoning draws near. Will Rachel and Chase succeed before disaster strikes?
I wasn't too sure I was going to like this book at first because I thought all the Japanese names would confuse me and I would have a hard time figuring out who was who but I gave it time and then it grew on me, and I didn't have any problems figuring out who went where.
It's a great adventure/romance story along the lines of Indiana Jones kind of thing with treasure hunters, ghostly creatures in the ocean, definite evil spirits in the tunnels and cave along with a good one who helped the threesome escape being killed in the cave.
Rachel ends up surprising everyone except the monk who knows she is capable of taking care of herself. It is Chase and Yuki who keep making the mistake that she needs to be protected. If it isn't for Rachel, neither one of them would have lived thru the whole thing.
And then there is the story about the geisha and the man that she loves who gets murdered. There are a few different stories running together in the book and the way it's told, you understand exactly what is going on and never will you be confused.
I really ended up liking the book a lot because it actually was a good clean book even with the few murders and a few sexual encounters, it still maintained it's Indiana Jones façade. If you love adventure and romance mixed together, then this will definitely be your cup of tea!
