Come and Join Me For the Hot Summer Nights Blog Hop

Come and Join me for the Hot Summer Nights Blog Hop      May 22-29th



The sequel novel to the best-selling, thriller, Golden Chariot. 

A sunken warship from the Byzantine Era carrying an unusual cargo of gold has been found off the coast of Northern Cyprus. News of the valuable cache has attracted the attention of a terrorist cell. They plan to attack the recovery team’s campsite and steal the artifacts. On the Black Market, the sale of the relics will buy them additional weapons.

Charlotte Dashiell, an American archaeologist, and her lover, Atakan Vadim, a Turkish government agent, are scheduled to be part of the recovery team that brings up the artifacts. While en route to Cyprus, they find themselves caught in the crosshairs of Maksym Tischenko, a Ukrainian contract killer bent on revenge. Charlotte, Atakan and Tischenko share a grim history. As a result, Tischenko is a man who will stop at nothing to achieve his goal—seeing them both dead.

If money was not an object, what country would you travel to?

  3. Hi Susan,

    We just came back from Italy last fall. Visiting Pompeii was on my bucket list and now I can scratch that off. What a fascinating place. I loved Scotland and have been a few times.

  11. If money were not an issue and I could go to any country I would probably go to... well, if I were being nice to my husband I would go to Scotland since he moved here 6 years ago so we could get married. His family is there and his parents have been here (to PA) to see us but we've not been able to go see them (plus it would be pretty cool to go there) but if I were to pick just for myself probably Italy because it just looks so dang beautiful whenever I see it on TV. The coastlines look stunning.

    Thank you so much for the chance to enter the giveaway. Have a great day one and all and a beautiful fun filled summer!

  15. HI Irene,

    It's been a long time ago but I had the opportunity to visit Ireland. Such lovely countryside. Dublin was fine but I enjoyed the smaller villages more. Just me.

  16. Hi Casey,

    We loved the Greek Islands. They are incredible. We took a donkey to the caldara top in Santorini. That was pretty fun;) I'd like to go back there to see the archaelogical dig on the other side of the island. Our fave island though, is Rhodes. Such history and beautiful to boot.

  17. Hi hh,

    My husband's father was from Sicily and my husband loves to study Roman history. We visited both Italy and Sicily recently. There's so much to see and learn. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

  18. Hi Sebella,

    Ireland, as I mentioned, is such a scenic land. I love some of the BBC shows that were filmed there. Of course, I also love to watch that very funny Irishman, Graham Norton:)

  19. Hi Shelly,
    I've been very fortunate in my life that I have been able to travel extensively. Scotland was remarkable. I've been a few times. I liked Edinburgh but my fave place was Inverness. The drive through the Highlands was fascinating.

  20. Hi Mer,
    The Mediterranean is spectacular. I set my last book, Byzantine Gold, in the Eastern Med in Northern Cyprus. One of the islands I can't wait to return to and spend more time is Malta.

  22. HI Sharon,

    A couple of years back my husband and I drove all around the Loire Valley in France visiting and staying at chateaus. What a lifestyle those folks led. The chateaus were all so beautiful.

  30. Hi Joye,

    We loved Australia. One of our fave places in the world is a little island off Melbourne called Phillip Island where you watch the fairy penguins come in at night from the ocean. Adorable. Never been to NZ but would love to visit one day.

  32. HI Ingeborg,
    Thank you for visiting with me again. I hope you're having a great week. How nice to have family to stay with when you go, which I'm sure you will.

    Australia has certainly given us some wonderful talent the last couple of decades: Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and so many others.

  36. Hi Strawberry Rose,

    My grandfather on my dad's side was Norweigan. He came from a small village not far from Oslo. We don't know much more than that. I hope one day to go to Norway, just to see it. My dad's mother emigrated from St. Petersburg, Russia. My mom's family all came from England.

    Japan does look intriguing from the lovely gardens with gorgeous cherry trees, to the incredible and colorful embroidered silk items and the adorable grey monkeys in the northern islands.

    Thank you for visiting with me on my blog and for visiting me on The Romance Studio site. I will be doing book giveaways there next month too.
    Ireland, it does conjure up vistas of green and castles on hilltops with a view of the sea and of course, fun pubs. Great dream vacation.
