The setting – New Orleans, Pernambuco, Brazil, and the opal mines of Australia.
One year ago, Antiquities dealer Elektra Charpentier lost the rarest opal she’d ever almost owned, and the only man she’d ever loved. Now he’s back.
Aussie gem hunter Cass McKay spent the last year searching for Elektra’s Blood Opal and a way back into her life, and into her heart. Now he has it. And he doesn’t intend to lose her again, because without her, he’s U n d o n e
No one steals from Cass, especially not when it cost him the woman he loves. One year ago on the eve of Carnival, Elektra broke their engagement after the “Blood” opal was stolen from them. But Elektra’s reason for breaking their engagement has now come back to bite her. Cass intends to return to Brazil, putting himself in danger to retrieve her opal, in the hope that Elektra will give their relationship another chance. Staying out of Cass’ bed isn’t an option if she’s going to keep him safe, but coming clean might make things worse. Elektra is walking a tightrope between desire and deceit, and the truth will endanger not only their love, but their lives.
