Princess Bria Visconti demands the return of the money her brother rashly invested in Cutter Salvage. Treasure hunter Nick Cutter is too reckless, too arrogant—and far too handsome—for his own good. But he can’t charm his way out of this one. Bria plans to make Nick pay up even if she has to board his boat, don a wet suit, and dive for the treasure herself… Nick sees Bria as a beautiful but spoiled princess who’s never done a day’s work in her pampered life. But once they set sail for the dive site, and the legendary fortune in gold the wreck carries, Nick begins to see Bria in a new light. This princess may be out of her depth, but she’s ready to take on the hidden danger and excitement a treasure hunt stirs to the surface. Together they must fight unexpected enemies—and reveal their darkest secrets—before they’re pulled into a rip current of danger.
Princess Gabriella Visconti is on a mission. Her brother the King of their small Italian country foolishly invested all of the country’s money in a treasure salvaging business. If her brother cannot pay the debt he owes their country will revert back to the Italian government. Bria cannot stand to watch the country that her beloved parents loved be lost. This is what brings Bria to Morocco. She is determined to get Nick Cutter the owner of the salvage company to refund her brother’s investment. If she only knew what she was getting into.
Nick Cutter has his hands full impersonating a terrorist loyalist for T-FLAC and salvaging the largest treasure he’s ever discovered. His undercover assignment was supposed to be an easy in and easy out. Unfortunately, things quickly go awry as the princess boards the Scorpion, his salvage ship. Nick is completely uncooperative where the princess is concerned. She may turn him on but he’s not about to give her what she wants because he wants her.
Conspiracy and secrets abound as danger lurks closer than anyone thinks. Bria becomes a target and Nick is determined to keep her safe and get her off his ship as soon as possible. Regrettably for Nick boulders keep getting dropped into his plans. He must stick by Bria’s side to keep her safe and find out who is behind the attacks. Can Bria change Nick’s mind about the investment money in time to save her country? Will these two sexy stubborn singles be able to keep their hands off each other the longer they are together? Who will survive Riptide?
Riptide is an intense action-packed adventure! Whoa, Nick comes off as such a cold hard-edged man. Bria is this vivacious, stubborn woman with plenty of secrets for Nick to ferret out. I liked watching Nick slowly thaw under Bria’s attentions. Nick and Bria sizzle so much they almost burn each other. The scenes where they are fighting are just as intense and irresistible as the ones where they make up. Cherry Adair has created a truly exciting world with her Cutter Cay books. Riptide explores the depths of the sea, the world of terrorism and even romantic Italy. I’m in love with the Cutter men and I’m excited to learn more about the long-lost brother they have recently discovered.
Riptide is a turbulent thriller with high impact action and a fiery romance that captures the reader and doesn’t let go.
