Sinopsis: Kyle Donovan has freed himself from the constraints of his father's high-powered global trading empire to turn his passion for adventure into a livelihood, roving the world as a treasure hunter for his own business, Donovan Gems and Minerals. Now his oldest brother, Archer, President of Donovan International, has given Kyle an assignment with explosive international implication, and an alliance that will shake the very core of his being.
Lianne Blakely, the illegitimate daughter of a powerful Hong Kong trader and his American mistress, has spent years studying the art of ancient jade, hoping to win the approval of her Chinese family. A brilliant gemologist, she has gained employment in the Tang family business, if not acceptance in the family. Now the Jade Emperor, one of China's legendary cultural treasures, has been stolen and Lianne is accused of the theft.
At first suspicious of the bright, ambitious family outcast, Kyle finds himself reluctantly believing her fierce claim of innocence and irresistably drawn to her exotic beauty. Soon they have joined forces to find the real thief--a venture that draws them into the perils of spiraling international power plays, and the discovery that their mutual love for an exquisite gemstone has linked them in an alliance as enduring as the beauty of the ancient jade.
Review: Elizabeth Lowell's second book in her trilogy featuring the internationally renowned Donovan family pairs youngest brother Kyle, who featured prominently in the previous book Amber Beach, with the illegitimate daughter of a Chinese trading dynasty. Lianne Blakely accepts that she'll never be openly acknowledged as Johnny Tang's daughter, but her expertise in handling the family's extensive jade collection has earned their respect and leads to her realization that someone has substituted inferior replicas for several priceless pieces. Kyle, meanwhile, has been ordered by big brother Archer to investigate Lianne's possible involvement in the sale of jade treasures that may have been stolen from China. With international relations and leadership within the Tang family at stake, Lianne joins Kyle's effort to find the thief and elude some nasty characters, despite the equally dangerous, explosive passion the couple shares. Hot love scenes, relentless suspense, and appearances by the noisy and affectionate Donovan clan keep the reader entertained. --Ellen Edwards
