Blurb from Secrets of an Aztec Temple:
Revenge is
not always sweet…
Isabella Mumphrey can’t leave a puzzle alone.
This time she attempts to use her anthropology knowledge to uncover who is
stealing priceless artifacts from an Aztec Temple in Mexico City. The discovery
will certainly prove her worth to the World Intelligence Agency. 
Tino Costantine is in Mexico City, too. He has
infiltrated a drug lord’s organization to find enough evidence to not only
prove the man’s illegal activities, but to bring him down for numerous deaths.
Namely those of Tino’s family.
But when the love of his life, Isabella,
strolls into his enemy’s home, Tino’s challenged by the choice of saving her or
fulfilling his revenge.

Excerpt from Secrets of an Aztec Temple:
Garza watched her
intently and steepled his fingers under his chin. “I was thinking you could
move into my house, keep my wife company, and show her how to catalog my
Trepidation trickled
down her spine and her stomach lurched. There was no way she’d become locked in
the house of a drug dealer.
“I’m here on a grant.
I can’t squander my time by working only for you. I’ll come over around noon
and will work with your wife, but I’ll not stay in your home.” Her voice
remained calm and firm.
His pleasant demeanor
started to darken.
“I think that is a
very workable situation, Paolo. I know Dr. Mumphrey is on a deadline for her
paper, and I am sure you would not want her to lose her funding.”
“I can pay you three
times as much as your government is willing to pay you.” Garza shifted in his
chair, giving her his full-on glare.
“That may be so, but
I still have many years I want to work for the university and if I take money
from you and not write my paper, I’ll lose my tenure. I’ve worked too hard and
sacrificed too much to allow greed to shove me into anonymity in anthropology
circles.” Isabella glared back at him. As much as he scared her, she would not
get herself locked up in his compound nor compromise a career she’d set her
sights on at seven years of age.

    Isabella has a lot of excitment, the one time I was on an archaelogy trip, it was pretty tame and mostly broring. 🙂
