For years bone hunter Cassie Ashton and paleontologist Dr. Alex Martinelli have been at each other's throats. Their fights are legendary in the industry. Alex has little respect for Cassie's company, since it buys and sells fossils to stay afloat.

Unfortunately for Alex, Cassie has an amazing knack for finding dinosaur bones. This time she may have hit the jackpot. Cassie believes she's found an intact infant T-Rex specimen, the first of its kind. But to validate the find, Cassie needs the prestige and authority of a Ph.D. And once Alex gets his first glimpse of the fossil specimen—affectionately named "Trixie"—he realizes that this is the find of a lifetime.

But just when Cassie and Alex reach detente, Trixie is stolen. The evidence points to Alex as the thief, but Cassie doesn't buy it. Joining forces, they know they must move fast or Trixie could disappear forever.

Fighting cats and dogs have nothing on Alex and Cassie. The outstanding Albert's new adventure is roaring, and the romance sizzles. Settle in for a great ride. (Mar., 384 pp., $6.99)
