Dr. Madison Dartmoor is a world-renowned archaeologist. While on a dig in Italy, Madison believes she has found proof of an unknown civilization. She has found a carved figure of a man that, when a lever is released, grows wings like a dragon. Madison decides to make a replica of the figure and heads to Las Vegas for an archaeology conference to release her findings. Just as she is getting ready to speak, Madison learns of an attack at her dig site. She decides that maybe she should wait on revealing what she has found and cancels the conference. Several people are upset by this, especially one man in particular. It seems this mystery man is especially interested in Dr. Dartmoor’s research and will stop at nothing to ensure the findings never see the light of day.

Ramsey Gallagher is also in attendance at Dr. Dartmoor’s conference, but for very different reasons than the mystery man. The figure that Madison has uncovered, he believes, will answer some very important questions about his past. He has every reason to want to find the figure. Apparently, Ramsey knows he isn’t human, but beyond that all he knows is that his origins are a mystery. Ramsey decides to befriend Madison in hopes that she will share what she has found in Italy. What Ramsey did not expect was to fall for the beautiful archaeologist. Now he finds himself in a whirlwind of mystery, romance and hopefully the key to his past.

I have now had to include yet another great writer. Ms. York’s series is intriguing to say the least among my favorites. The way she weaves a story and keeps the reader on the edge of their seats is phenomenal. Her attention to details, as told in the archaeology dig in Italy, is wonderful. The romance that builds between Madison and Ramsey is a wonderful crescendo into a love that will last through the ages. I won’t go into Ramsey’s past too much as I don’t want to include any spoilers, but Madison will be the key to unlocking a painful past and uncertain future. Kudos to Rebecca York for adding another brilliant addition to the paranormal realm.
