Elisabeth Naughton steals our hearts with a new addition to her Stolen series, Stolen Chances

I first got hooked on Elisabeth Naughton when I read Stolen Fury, the first book in her Stolen Series. I quickly devoured the next two books - Stolen Heat and Stolen Seduction, then moved on to her also addictive Eternal Guardians series. I had no idea she'd expand on the Stolen trilogy, but was absolutely delighted when her publisher offered a review copy of book four in the series, Stolen Chances.

We first met the heroine of book four, archaeologist Maren Hudson, in Stolen Fury, but now she's back with a storm. Blackmailed into going on a dig with her father in the Yucatan, Maren encounters the last person she wanted to ever see again, salvage expert Thad Leighton who had thrown her love back and deserted her after a tragic death on the last dig she'd been on in the Yucatan.

Maren's keeping a lot of secrets from Thad, including one that they both should have been sharing, but can her secrets kill her? What seems on the surface to be an exciting deep-sea archaeological discovery turns threatening and who's on whose side in this race for a precious statue keeps changing.

Naughton delivers a fast-paced, suspenseful novel that also offers a little magic and a whole lot of HOT romance. It's definitely a page-turning, stay-up-all-night read!

If you haven't already read the first three books in Naughton's Stolen series, you can get them together in the Stolen Series Box Set: Stolen Fury, Stolen Heat, and Stolen Seduction. I'd highly recommend reading these first, even though book four could be a stand-alone, as there are just really great additions to your romantic suspense library.

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Elisabeth Naughton, the fourth book in her sexy, heart pounding Stolen Series.

Nine years ago, Archaeologist Maren Hudson lost everything when a member of her team was killed during a routine dive. Now she’s been drawn back to Mexico and the career she walked away from in order to protect the most precious thing in the world: her daughter.

One desperate phone call brings salvage expert Thad Leighton back to Mexico. For his murdered brother, he’s ready to settle the score, but one look at Maren and everything changes. Years may have passed, but she’s still as mesmerizing as she once was, and a few days on site together have him questioning his priorities and why the hell he walked away from her so long ago.

Sparks between them reignite, but Thad knows Maren is holding something back. Thrust together in the middle of the sweltering Yucatan, Thad is more than willing to strip away her layers. But while the truth might offer the second chance he’s been searching for, forgiveness may be as elusive as the relic they’re both hunting. Because when Thad unearths Maren’s biggest secret and discovers who she’s really working for, suddenly it’s not just about a life that was stolen from both of them, it’s about staying alive and outwitting a madman who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
