A story on the search for sunken Spanish treasure in the Caribbean should have been a plum assignment for reporter Hope Sinclair. But since it comes at the expense of another story she'd been working on, she is more annoyed than anything else. Hope was investigating potential corruption and coercion against a group of senior citizens, but pressure from above got her pulled from the story.

Treasure hunter Conner Reese is ticked that one of his partners insists on having a reporter cover the search for the Spanish galleon. A former Navy SEAL, Conner also has a highly developed danger radar, and it's telling him that trouble is following Hope. Since previous romantic experiences have burned both Hope and Conner, neither is currently looking for love.

Hot adventure and spicy romance heat up the action in this newest romantic thriller from the always terrific Martin. As the end of a trilogy, Deep Blue rounds out the adventures of the Sinclair sisters in a most satisfactory way. (Apr., 384 pp., $6.99)
