STOLEN FURY Elisabeth Naughton Book One Release Date: December 30, 2008 ISBN: 978-0-505-52793-6
Blurb: To unearth a centuries-old secret, an archaeologist must team up with the rakish thief who's stolen both an ancient relic and her heart...
Oh, is he handsome. And charming. And sexy as all get out. Dr. Lisa Maxwell isn’t the type to go home with a guy she barely knows. But, hey, this is Italy and the red-blooded Rafe Sullivan seems much more enticing than cataloging a bunch of dusty artifacts.
After being fully seduced, Lisa wakes to an empty bed and, worse yet, an empty safe. She’s staked her career as an archaeologist on collecting the three Furies, a priceless set of ancient Greek reliefs. Now the one she had is gone. But Lisa won’t just get mad. She’ll get even.
She tracks Rafe to Florida, and finds the sparks between them blaze hotter than the Miami sun. He may still have her relic, but he’ll never find all three without her. And they’re not the only ones on the hunt. To beat the other treasure seekers, they’ll have to partner up—because suddenly Lisa and Rafe are in a race just to stay alive.
My Thoughts: Dr. Lisa Maxwelll has been hunting for the Furies for fifteen years when she finally stumbles across the second one in a cave in Jamaica. The night before she is to fly to Greece to have Alecto authenticated it is stolen right out from under her nose.
Having a detective for a brother can come in handy in times like these. She is quickly able to track her sexy Latin thief, Rafe, down in Florida.
Rafe needs Lisa's help to find the third Fury so he can fulfill promises made. He completely expected her to track him down, just not so quickly. He convinces Lisa to work with him, while still holding on to her relic.
Neither Lisa nor Rafe were anticipating the sparks that would fly . There seemed to be a magnetic current that pulled at these two and denying each othe soon became a foolish thought. Together they must run for their lives and find Tisiphone before it is too late.
Stolen Fury wasn't extremely fast paced but it sure did move at a speed that kept you turning the pages and kept you on your toes. The steamy romance between these two was nothing less than electric! A totally awesome story that I highly recommend to anyone that loves a great adventure and romantic suspense. I can't wait to delve into Elisabeth Naughton's newly released sequel, Stolen Heat!
