Dr. Deanna Vasquez hasn’t seen her renowned archeologist mother since she was child. Deanna’s mother was obsessed with finding Montezuma’s tomb and left the family behind in her quest to find it. Now a CIA agent comes into Deanna’s life to tell her that her mother has been kidnapped by terrorists. Now Deanna is going to have to find a way to help the mother she hasn’t seen in years and rescue her.

Guillermo “Bill” Santana is a CIA agent and he has been assigned the task of finding Deanna’s mother and saving her from the terrorists that have her before they can use what she has found to their benefit. Bill is good at his job but he is suddenly finding it difficult to do a job he has never had trouble doing before.

What Bill and Deanna never expected was their attraction to each other and how that was going to interfere with the mission they are on. As Bill poses as Deanna’s fiancĂ©e to draw out the terrorists so that they can stop them from getting what just might be deadly in the wrong hands. The item that Deanna’s mother found that caused her to be kidnapped in the first time. It will be a race against time to get to the discovery before the terrorists do and before they get rid of Deanna’s mother too.
