She has a passion for unlocking the secrets of the past.…
Archaeologist Carter Wessex is drawn to Farrell Mountain to solve a centuries old mystery—and find a fortune in hidden gold. One thing stands in her way: Nick Farrell, a notorious corporate raider with no patience for trespassers on his land, and way too much sex appeal. After an explosive introduction, Carter abandons the project…but with Nick in hot pursuit.

What she finds is something more valuable than gold.…
Though wary of Nick’s change of heart, Carter is soon swept up into the mystery—and the arms of a man she swore she’d never fall for. As buried secrets surface and passion grows, the shocking details of the missing gold are revealed. So are Nick’s true motives, leaving Carter to wonder…has everything between them been just another cunning ruse? And how many more secrets has he yet to share?

It will take a heart of gold to find the truth—and have faith in a timeless love.…

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missy | 1/21/2014

    " You can tell this was in the beginning of Jessica's career. It was still a good read though. I like being able to see how she has progressed. I have always liked the way most of the Jessica Bird books were linked together in some way with different characters, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/14/2014

    " I thought it was great to see how J.R. Ward's writing started. Her first few books really show the potential she had. Nick and Carter were great characters and I loved the story they uncovered about the dead soldiers and the gold. I was entertained the entire book, although I would have loved to see a bit more with the kids together. Wonderful story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisarenee | 1/8/2014

    " This, as far as I can tell, was Ward's first book. Very nice story. It's out of print so I had to get it used via amazon. About an archeologist who attempts to get permission to excavate a site believed to hold a mystery to what happened to gold and some revolutionary figures who disappeared. "

    " History romantic and full of twist with the just right amount of good beginnings to the endings! My favorites book yet! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia189 | 11/14/2013

    " I liked this one a lot, it has strong characters, loved the dialogues...quite good. Only one thing in there, plot related, tat I thought was stupid, but apart from that, a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 11/1/2013

    " Predictable, but a fun and easy read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise | 8/1/2013

    " Aaaah can't beat a good old Jessica Bird/JR Ward book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 7/24/2013

    " I loved both of the main characters. I just wanted....I don't know. More of an after they are finally together. No epilogue no book after this book to check in on them. Did they have kids? Where did they end up living? So many questions I have for this couple I loved so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Serena | 1/23/2013

    " This book was wonderful like all books by this author. I have not read one I don't like yet! The store grabbed me in the beginning. I got a little grippy with the Carter's hardheadedness I didn't think she would ever get a heart for forgiveness. Amazing read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley | 1/14/2013

    " This novel was really romantic and exciting. It is one my favorite among the Jessica Bird novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 10/15/2012

    " Very nice story. The plot and the characters kept me turning the pages. At times I thought that Carter was a little shrill, and I wouldn't have blamed Nick for taking off...but everything is happily resolved at the end (of course). Also learned a little about archeological sites are excavated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayce Yeargain | 9/10/2012

    " I thought that this book was good. Just your basic romance novel. The heroine was likeable, and the hero was aggressive yet loveable. Compared to her other works, this is on the lower end of the scale, but it is one of her early novels. Her signature style is still present, and I still did love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 8/16/2012

    " A fiery romance between two strong willed intelligent characters. Carter is a great female character. She's her own woman and is a perfect match for Nick. The secondary characters were interesting and endearing. It was sexy and well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tobin | 7/15/2012

    " This was a really cute story. I really like the secondary cast members and I really enjoyed its simplicity. Finished it in just over a day. "
