No one charters the depths of passion on the high seas like New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair
DESIRE RUNS DEEP
Somewhere off the coast of Greece, a king’s ransom in gold, emeralds, and silver coins lies waiting at the bottom of the sea. Finding this ancient treasure would be a dream come true for marine archeologist Calista West. But that’s not why she’s here. She didn’t climb aboard Jonah Cutter’s magnificent yacht seeking fortune or fame. She’s come for revenge—against the sexiest, most seductive, modern-day pirate she’s ever encountered…
Like his famous half brothers, Jonah is a master of salvaging ships—and driving women mad with his movie-star looks and raw animal magnetism. Tall, dark, and devastating, he manages to make Callie forget her mission. Every moment they share under the hot Mediterranean sun is an erotically-charged adventure neither can resist. But when Callie discovers what he’s really after—the lost city of Atlantis—is it too late to change the course of her heart…or go all in with the lover of her dreams?
The Cutter Cay series is:
"Action-packed drama." —Fresh Fiction
"Sizzlingly sexy." —Booklist
"Enticing." —Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Mystical and intense are the words that come to my mind after reading this book. The author Cherry Adair's vivid imagination and attention to detail makes this a wonderful and exciting read.
Callie's character is intense and how she orders her life from her traumatic childhood is a great example for all people. She is a fully dimensional character though somewhat lacking in her personal life. For this reason the addition of Jonah's character is perfect. He is larger than life and continually pushes up against her boundaries not allowing her to stay in her safe zone which forces her to grow personally.
Not having read the other books to this series I do have some questions regarding Rydell's back history in regards to the Cutter boys. I look forward to reading books 1-3 of the Cutter Cay Series to fill in the holes though it isn't necessary for reading this book.
I really liked all the intricate details of the dives as I know I will never scuba dive but from her writing I felt like I was there experiencing all the unique events.
Mysticism is an area that can either draw you in or turn you off but in this book I was fully immersed in the possibility that the lost city of Atlantis actually existed. The author did a phenomenal job in developing this part of the book.
I give this 4 stars from making the mysticism believable and the relationship between Callie's loyalty to Jonah and Rydell realistic.

Now Ry spends his days searching for treasure—until his ship is hijacked.

When Addison D’Marco boards Tesoro Mio to find her ex-husband in her cabin, she’s furious. Ry is more handsome, more annoying, and more determined than ever. Addy can’t believe he has the nerve to demand the ship back after the way he broke her heart. With her fiancé about to board, she doesn’t want Ry back in her life to ignite painful memories and never- forgotten desires. But could it be that, amid troubled waters, Addy and Ry can salvage what they once had and have a second chance at love. . .or does fate have something else in store?
