When he is not in the classroom, he travels the world working as an archaeologist for hire. He defies laws, the threat of death, and fierce competition- nothing can keep him from uncovering historys treasures. He is employed by prestigious museums and incredibly wealthy private collectors, and his fee is steep. However, its not the outrageous salary that excites him, but the thrill of the hunt and the wonder of ancient mysteries. Theo regularly makes the impossible look easy by recovering long-lost artifacts and lives up to his reputation as the best in the business. His biggest competition is Gillian Langtree, his former lover, and ex-business partner.Theo and Gillian have not spoken in more than a year, but she mysteriously reappears as he prepares to embark on his most important mission yet. The Chicago Museum of Antiquities has uncovered new evidence that suggests the doomsday prophecies are correct, and the curator desperately wants Theo to retrieve an artifact that could prevent the end of the world. Although he is skeptical, Theo cannot deny his desire to discover something with the power to rewrite history, and Gillian has the information he needs to do it. He is also, as always, rendered powerless at her touch. Gillian proves to Theo that she is as mischievous, intoxicating, and sexually ferocious as he remembers, but can he still trust her?With the new apocalypse date swiftly approaching, he doesnt have enough time to figure it out before they head deep into the Nicaraguan jungle together. Unfortunately for Theo, it soon becomes clear that Gillian is up to her old tricks when she lets him fall into an ancient Aztec booby trap and confesses she is after the artifact for herself. A battle for both the professional and sexual upper hand begins and the fate of the world may be decided by the winner. It is an erotic game that is extremely dangerous, especially since Theo and Gillian may not be only two players on the field.
