    1. This one had more depth than your normal Harlequin with a very intelligent, fun loving heroine and an atypical hero. The quest for artifacts was also interesting and very well done. So I not only got my romance "fix", but a lesson on archeological digs and other historical perspectives. However, as is common in the older Harlequins, I was a bit disappointed in the ending.
