Jeremiah Cortez thought he'd left the past behind him--especially the part of his past concerning Phoebe Keller. Once she had stirred his world-weary soul. Now, years later, seeing the blond beauty again sparks dormant desires. But he has to push his emotions aside--he has new ties that can't be broken.

Phoebe thought her feelings for Cortez were buried as deep as the artifacts she studies in her museum. An expert in Native American culture, she has her doubts when an anthropologist claims to have discovered a Neanderthal skeleton on a nearby reservation. But before Phoebe can pursue the matter, the professor in question turns up dead--and the FBI sends Cortez to investigate.

Now, as the two delve further into the murder, they find themselves entangled in a world of conspiracy, deception...and a love more powerful than anything they've ever known.
