Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
Ivy Jones has had a challenging life. She's learned to distrust men, and has sworn off the male population, she firmly believes she has no use for a man. Even her cotton candy pink chopper is a not-so-subtle defiance to all things masculine.
As an Archeologist, Ivy is excavating in an ancient temple and has the good fortune to make the find of a life time-an intact and perfect Athena. But the statuette is more than it appears, there's an ancient curse associated with the Athena-a curse that lies in wait, to be discovered by a believer of the Goddess herself. It takes possession of Ivy and life begins to take on some unexpected twists. Aside from the fact that she can't leave the statue for long without ill affects, things get steadily worse when The Athena is stolen and she is forced to rely on a smooth and persistent man on whom her life may depend.
Dane Knight knows trouble when he sees it. As a Navy SEAL turned Private Investigator, he has encountered more then his fair share, and has sworn off taking any new cases. Until the theft of The Athena is brought to him. He's drawn into the assignment, unable to resist, especially after he meets Ivy Jones, the Museum's Head Curator. Dreams haunt him, dragging him deeper into the case, and he begins to soothe her angry, neglected spirit. As she learns to trust him, he begins to peel back the layers, and soon discovers there is more to the case than a mundane theft.
Working together Dane and Ivy do find the statue, and Ivy discovers something more precious than anything else, the cure to her curse.
