I can’t believe it. Release day is finally here. I’m elated, nervous, excited, stressed…my emotions run the gamut. At this point there’s nothing to do but sit back and enjoy though, so that’s my plan for the day.
However, in honor of release day, I’ll be blogging all over. You can find me at Magical Musings,
Oh, is he handsome. And charming. And sexy as all get out. Dr. Lisa Maxwell isn’t the type to go home with a guy she barely knows. But, hey, this is Italy and the red-blooded Rafe Sullivan seems much more enticing than cataloging a bunch of dusty artifacts.
After being fully seduced, Lisa wakes to an empty bed and, worse yet, an empty safe. She’s staked her career as an archaeologist on collecting the three Furies, a priceless set of ancient Greek reliefs. Now the one she had is gone. But Lisa won’t just get mad. She’ll get even.
She tracks Rafe to Florida, and finds the sparks between them blaze hotter than the Miami sun. He may still have her relic, but he’ll never find all three without her. And they’re not the only ones on the hunt. To beat the other treasure seekers, they’ll have to partner up—because suddenly Lisa and Rafe are in a race just to stay alive.
Read what reviewers are saying…
Publisher’s Weekly (November 3, 2008)
“A rock-solid debut…Naughton’s intelligent adventure plot is intensified by the blazing heat that builds from Lisa and Rafe’s first erotic encounter.”
“When a tough-as-nails and slightly repressed archaeologist meets a charming bad-boy thief, they test each other’s limits, narrowly escape danger and fall in love. Naughton creates an action-packed and satisfying storyline. She also delivers one very charming and sexy hero — with a heart of gold.”
“Naughton has clearly done her research on both mythology and archaeology and the details all ring true. Descriptions of the Furies will make you want to look up pictures, and you can almost feel the dampness surround you during the scenes in underwater caves. Naughton has included a strong lineup of secondary characters, some of whom we may well meet again in the second and third books in the series. STOLEN FURY is a must-read for all fans of romantic suspense.”
Night Owl Romance
“STOLEN FURY is a great debut novel in a trilogy. It’s fast-paced and intensely suspenseful. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happened next. The chemistry between Lisa and Rafe was scorching hot and I enjoyed their getting to know each other. They disliked yet were attracted to each other and it was fun to see them fight it. I thoroughly enjoyed STOLEN FURY and look forward to reading the next in the trilogy.”
The Romance Readers Connection
“Get ready! When you read STOLEN FURY you will have to hold on for your life. The romance between Lisa and Rafe is hot, hot, hot! And the story line will keep your head spinning and your heart racing! From page one, Elisabeth Naughton keeps the sex spicy and the scenery changing. Who knew cave digging with a thief and an archaeologist could be so sexy? If you love romantic suspense novels, you will want to snatch this one up. Keep Ms. Naughton’s name on your short list too, I hope we see more from her!”
Coffee Time Romance
“Elisabeth Naughton can spin a tale to captivate the reader and take them for a ride. The locations in this book are some of the most exotic but are still just a backdrop to the main characters. The hero and heroine are both flawed but still loveable and therefore believable. The author really took the time to look into the Puerto Rican and Greek cultures to make the story authentic. Rafe has a sexy Spanish accent with which he says the sweetest things every woman would love to hear. Ms. Naughton skillfully kept the identity of the villain a secret to the very last chapter and I was shocked upon the revelation.”
“This is an exciting romantic suspense thriller that starts off hot with the sexual encounter and from there turns up the heart and the action. Rafe is sort of a modern day Hans Solo-Indiana Jones rogue while Lisa is more of the by the book professional. To find the statues and survive, they each need to adapt some of the other’s core values; love complicates the already difficult task. Elisabeth Naughton provides readers with a stirring archaeological thriller.”
