Botanist Madeline Wentworth has been disgraced by a former lover and is looking to the Amazon to provide her the redemption she needs to kill the rumors at the university where she works. Unfortunately the first guide hired for her expedition dies and Mattie and her crew are stuck just outside of the Amazon unless they can find someone else.
Travis is a jungle guide and Travis’s estranged grandfather’s death puts him on a treasure hunt for the Templar gold. Mattie’s expedition is the perfect cover for him to look for the treasure, but as Travis gets to know Mattie keeping his other agenda a secret becomes even more of a struggle. Add that to one of the crew members falling ill, kidnapping, and hostile natives Travis and Mattie may not even make it out of the jungle alive let alone find the Templar treasure.

I really enjoyed this story the pacing is very good, the characters are well rounded and plot offered many twists and turns. I’m not usually a fan of adventures in the jungle, wilderness, etc. but this story kept my interest. Watching Mattie and Travis’s relationship develop was lovely and I greatly appreciated the struggle the two characters face. Travis overcomes a lot to consider himself worth of Mattie and vice versa which just makes the two of them even more lovable. The only issue I had with story was the way it was finally wrapped up was a little odd, but still a great read. I recommend this one.
