Archaeologist Ian Lewis turns up the most remarkable antiquities, thanks to moonlighting as a buccaneer. Flitting in time between modern day and the eighteenth century, he rescues soon-to-be-lost artifacts from watery graves.

Just as he must keep his sideline career as a pirate captain under wraps, so too must he hide his relationship with his closeted lover, fellow archaeologist David Kane. With David’s help, his rescued treasures surface again after hundreds of years, and Ian would like nothing more than to display his love and his pride as publicly as his museum finds. Now they are on a quest for a legendary golden statue—a statue with hidden meaning for them both.

For a prize more valuable than gold, Ian must win The Pirate’s Gamble.

My View:

I’m not normally a fan of historical stories but I tried this one because of the author, who I’m a big fan of. While it didn’t blow me away it was an enjoyable short read.

This story takes place in two different eras and stars archeologist Ian Lewis who has managed to retrieve valuable antiques because he is able to travel in time. He is after a specific piece, a golden statue, and uses his knowledge of the past to travel to the right times.

Helping him in the modern day is Ian’s closeted lover, David. Their relationship and its problems are directly connected to Ian’s search in the past. The ending was action-packed, nerve wracking and sweet all the same time.

Highly recommended.
