Uncharted by Anna Hackett
Series: Treasure Hunter Security #2
Published: June 5, 2016 by Anna Hackett
Genre: Suspense Romance
Former Navy SEAL Callum Ward has one motto–live life to the fullest. He saw the worst of war and lost good friends, but now he works for Treasure Hunter Security. When he’s not providing security for archaeological digs and invaluable museum exhibits, or off on daring treasure hunts, he’s rock climbing, racing, or skiing. Nothing–and no one–has ever tempted him to slow down…until on an expedition into the Cambodian jungle, he has to work with one opinionated, prickly photographer, Dani Navarro. But soon their straight-forward trek to find a lost temple turns deadly, and Cal and Dani find themselves under attack from a dangerous black-market antiquities ring prepared to kill.
Dani Navarro lives for her photography. For years, it’s been her escape from her family and their frivolous lifestyle, affairs, and dramas. With her camera in hand, she travels the world, capturing other people’s moments and avoiding messy entanglements. At first, she thinks Cal Ward is no different from all the other men she’s known, but as their expedition turns into a hazardous dash through uncharted jungle, she uncovers a tough, intelligent, and sexy protector. Together, they must outwit their pursuers and find not only a lost temple…but a priceless, powerful artifact.
Another great action adventure romance from Anna Hackett! I know nothing about Cambodian history so I didn’t immediately connect with the setting, but I still enjoyed the story and again Hackett throws in a little mythological twist to keep things interesting.
I enjoyed Dani’s spitfire nature and her attempts to see the beautiful in everything she photographed. Callum was a great alpha hero and I liked when he tried to get Dani to just experience where she was before diving into her photography. Considering the length of these books, there’s usually a lot of insta-love for the characters, but this time I would have liked a little more development to support their feelings. Callum mostly just has one-night-stands and Dani is only interested in a commitment.
We also got to see more of the other Treasure Hunter Security crew and I can’t wait to have Morgan’s story because she’s awesome.
3 stars – it was good
