Helping out a friend, former immigration and customs
enforcement officer Hunter Johnston is determined to

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth
Lowell boldly puts the romance back into romantic suspense
with BEAUTIFUL SACRIFICE — a story of passion and intrigue
centered around the ancient Mayan prediction of the
apocalyptic end of everything. Lowell’s thrillingly
imaginative tale unites a dedicated female archaeologist
with a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officer
on a mission to recover priceless South American artifacts
that could bring deadly chaos into our world.
BEAUTIFUL SACRIFICE is action, suspense, and love on a
bestselling par with Lisa Gardner, Linda Howard, Jayne Ann
Krentz, and Nora Roberts…and exactly the sort of romantic
adventure that inspired Johanna Lindsey to
declare, “Lowell is great!”
