That said, this is a good premise for a story, and I thought that the author's writing style did it justice. The pace of the narrative didn't lag or bog down at any point and the character building was solid and believable. When you add in the back story reveal which was woven throughout the tale, as well as the development of the initially tenuous relationship between Chase and Rachel, these all become wedded together to create a tense and involving story. And one which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Rachel Lyons is left blaming herself for her father's accident, in which he doesn't survive. She starts working at a foundation office always keeping to herself, locked in her own depression. Rachel is then found helping a museum director recover a cursed relic from a Chinese sunken ship after receiving news that her brother has been kidnapped by gangsters.
The greatest part of the novel is Chase, an ex of Rachel's who suddenly comes back into her life and helps her throughout the story. They rekindle their romance after being in love for so long. I found Chase to be very likable, and bring life to the story. Rachel and Chase's love story is like no other's; they go through many hard times together, and it's wonderful to read through it.
Kailyn Mcfarren does an absolutely marvellous job at telling this exciting tale. I enjoyed every moment of reading this book. She knows how to start a great beginning, and keep the readers intrigued. A fantastic story with lots of drama and thrills. A great novel for anyone who enjoys different genres.
If someone makes a movie on this storyline, it will definitely become an Oscar winning movie. The author Kaylin McFarren has turned out to be a wonderful writer that always keeps those standards alive in each book she writes. I am glad that she wrote this book in series and I would love to grab my hands on the remaining parts too and hoping that those will also be such fascinating. This novel really deserves all this appreciation!
Kaylin understands the marriage of thriller and romance combinations and the importance of leaving little clues along the way of her story that foretell secrets: she places a little ‘pirate’s ditty’ in the early pages of the book that has a special tone of suspense and an overwhelming taste of love to lead us into this spicy tale.
She offers a fine summary to seduce the reader: ‘A hidden treasure under the sea reunites ex-lovers desperate to save the ones they value most. Believing herself responsible for her father's fatal diving accident, Rachel Lyons has withdrawn from the world and assumed a safe position at a foundation office. When called upon by a museum director to assist Trident Ventures with the recovery of a priceless relic from a sunken Chinese merchant ship, she has no intention of cooperating - especially after discovering her former love interest is involved. But Rachel soon realizes she has no choice when a drug-dealing gangster kidnaps her brother and demands two million dollars for his safe return. In order to rescue him and gain control over her life, she must not only overcome her greatest fears, but also steal the Heart of the Dragon out from under Chase Cohen - the same cursed relic that is holding the museum director's life in peril. With three lives now on the line, including her own, Rachel must relive the circumstances that lead to her father's death. Will she gain Chase's trust and recover the Mai Le treasure in time or will they both die trying?’ And form the opening chapter we meet diver Chase Cohen – ‘According to the coordinates on Sam’s map, somewhere between the bottomless pit and mountainous rise lay a barnacle-crusted anchor and chain. If his calculations were right, below them rested the wreck of the Wanli II— the Ming Dynasty emperor’s lost dragon ship.’ Then comes the embroidery of romance to zest up the plot and voila! – a splendid new work by Kaylin McFarren – and this is only Volume 1!
