Eric Bloom, reeling from the news that he may have a life-threatening illness, is sent off to check on a dig his company is funding at Machu Picchu. Eric anticipates a few days in the jungle and some awkward conversation with the nerdy archaeologists. What he doesn’t expect is to meet Dr. Alexis Perry: fiery, sarcastic, smart as a whip, and drop dead gorgeous. Unfortunately, she isn’t fond of him at first sight. Also unfortunate? The fact that someone has set their sights on the artifacts at Machu Picchu. And they’re willing to kill to get them.
