Publisher: Carina Press
Genre: Paranormal romance
Six months ago, Cynthia Guerrera's lover and fellow archaeologist Rafael Santiago trekked into the Mexican jungle in search of one of the fabled Cities of Gold-and never emerged. Guilty over their parting, Cynthia won't rest until she knows what happened. When the discovery of a conquistador's journal corroborates Rafe's intended path, Cynthia is determined to finally leave the safety of the museum to rescue him, despite the conquistador's dire warnings, and her own traumatic past.
Arriving at a remote village deep in the jungle, Cynthia is both elated and angered to find Rafe alive. But he is far from well, having watched his team be decimated by a bloodthirsty demon-goddess. When Rafe reveals he has been gifted with supernatural powers-powers he plans to use to kill the beast and save his brother, still held captive in the temple-Cynthia must face her own inner demons to fight alongside the man she loves.
Aztec gold is a thrilling archaeologist adventure. I loved the vivid detail the author brings to this story, it felt like I could be there. I would love to see this in the movies. I found this book to be a page turner with archaeologist adventure, danger, lots of blood, romance and supernatural powers.
I loved the romance between Rafe and Cynthia. They are already lovers and after the disappearance of Rafe, Cynthia goes to the Mexican jungle to see if he is still alive. There she finds not only a psycho demon-goddess, but a few more surprises along the way. The sex is hot, but be prepared there is more storyline than sex. I recommend this to all paranormal romance readers, especially if you like a hot archaeologist.
There is a place at the end where you’ll find a take off for another book. I hope to be able to read it one day.
