SYNOPSIS

When Trent Copeland runs into Reed Acton at a Bangkok airport, he thinks the handsome American is too good to be true. Why would someone like Reed be interested in a quiet, introverted gay-romance writer? After all, even an obvious tourist like Trent can see that there is more to Reed’s constant unexplained appearances in his path than meets the eye.

Reed Acton has one mission and one mission only—he needs to get the map that was accidentally slipped into Trent’s bag and keep the mobsters who want the priceless artifact from taking deadly revenge. Trent Copeland is a delicious and damned near irresistible diversion, but Reed can’t afford distractions right now, especially if he wants to keep Trent safe.

From Bangkok’s seediest back alleys to the sacred north, the two men will fight to stay one step ahead of the bad guys and learn that the only treasure worth finding is… each other.

REVIEWS:

This isn’t just a romantic book – it’s also one that teaches a lot about another culture in a way that doesn’t feel forced. I loved the setting, the characters intrigued me, and there were enough questions left unanswered and these were so tastefully done that the questions actually kept me wanting more instead of frustrating me. Instead of being disappointed by the lack of explanations for a couple of things, I find myself yearning for a sequel. –MM Good Book Reviews (http://mmgoodbookreviews.wordpress.com/2011/08/11/rarer-than-rubies-by-e-m-lynley/)

This book is filled with adventure, lust, and love and I couldn’t get enough. Trent is one of those make characters you can’t help but fall in love with from page one brave, funny, and quirky he is the type of male that commands attention and I couldn’t turn him down.– JBP Reviews (http://jbpreviews.com/2011/08/24/rarer-than-rubies-by-e-m-lynley/)

The novel has the fast pace and the vivid images of a movie script, and of course the foreign setting helps a lot. .. it also seemed to me the author was paying an homage to the most famous romantic adventure movie of ever, Romancing the Stone. Like in that movie, a mostly naive romance writer unwillingly lives the adventures you usually find in romance books to the end arriving to crave them. –Elisa Rolle (http://elisa-rolle.livejournal.com/1407039.html)

SNEAK PEEK:

“See? You can trust me.” Reed laughed. He enjoyed watching Trent consume the rest of the coconut pieces, picking each up and licking it to catch the last drops of the drink before sucking it into his mouth with a tiny slurp.
“Eating coconut and going somewhere with you are two entirely different things.” Trent tilted his head slightly then licked his lips and Reed had to keep from jumping across the table and kissing him. Did Trent know how he was torturing Reed as he imagined what else those lips and tongue could be doing. The smile on Trent’s face led Reed to believe that maybe he did. Damn tease! But Reed was enjoying the game. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt a spark like this for anyone.
“Fair enough.”
They chatted casually for another ten minutes, where Reed kept the conversation mainly about Thai food–deftly avoiding personal topics–until Trent seemed to have relaxed and become less suspicious. Reed noticed Trent’s appraising glances and grinned, hoping his dimples might be extra convincing. God, he hated doing it this way but he was on a short timetable and he didn’t have the luxury of being smooth about it.
“Have you decided you can lower the threat level on me to blue or green?”
Trent laughed and Reed’s spirits picked up. He liked the sound of Trent’s laugh.
“Well, I might go as low yellow, with an option for blue.”
