by Andrew J. Rodriguez


Book Details

A Royal Treasure . . . A Ghostly Bargain . . . A Charming Alliance

Archaeologist Ashton Bryke unearths a priceless cache of ancient golden jewelry. The discovery could secure him fame and fortune for life-but he is willing to bury it again forever . . .

. . . to spend one night with the treasure's owner, the most beautiful woman who ever lived: Helen, Princess of Troy.

Helen keeps her side of the bargain and materializes in all her luscious glory in Ashton's hotel room. But the wily princess has also made a bargain with Zeus, and she has plans for the wealthy, handsome archaeologist. For Ashton is an inveterate womanizer, and she has come to life to reform Ashton's licentious lifestyle in order to expiate her three-thousand-year-old sin of adultery.

Why would Ashton Bryke resist the advances of the world's most beautiful woman? What powerful inner force could compel this ladies' man to contain his lust despite overwhelming temptation? Only another bargain-one with an otherworldly payoff for both Ashton and Helen. But if they succeed as a team, what kind of reward will they expect next? The answers lie hidden in:


This light-hearted story of desire and deliverance originates in Turkey and crosses the sparkling Aegean to Greece and back again-filled with romance, music, art, sailing, dining, and philosophical inquiries along the way.
