When a tough-as-nails and slightly repressed archeologist meets a charming bad-boy thief, they test each other's limits, narrowly escape danger and fall in love. While it's a familiar plot (think Romancing the Stone), Naughton creates an action-packed and satisfying storyline. She also delivers one very charming and sexy hero -- with a heart of gold.
Her twin brother, Chicago detective Shane Maxwell, helps her find Rafe in Key West, Fla., where he has a line on the second Fury. They reluctantly join forces and race to complete the set before another treasure hunter takes them both out of the game. (LOVE SPELL, Jan., 336 pp., $6.99)
