"I'm a treasure hunter . . . . . it's my job to find precious things."
You would think those words would penetrate any girl's speculative heart, but the handsome, flirty treasure hunter with the cavalier attitude was just so . . . . . . daring? Self-confident? Dare she admit . . appealing? Marine photographer Summer Arnet isn't easily fooled and there is something about Trent Carrington and his eagerness to explore a recent dive location for sunken treasure that just doesn't ring true.
Centuries Earlier - a young Spanish woman has made a brave decision as she boards Captain Montoya's galleon, the "Santa Rosa" as a newbie sailor, carefully hiding her gender in order to escape her abusive stepfather. She has nothing of value except her grandmother's pendant, an heirloom of great value which Isabella has carefully tucked within her clothing, knowing that she will have no means to start her life over in the New World without it.
Monzon deftly weaves these two time lines together towards a climatic intersection, allowing Summer and Trent the opportunity to discover the significance of an everlasting treasure that can never be destroyed. Yes, "there is always a story".
