"An intriguing and mystical tale of a search for hidden treasure and a missing mother"

Romance Suspense

Caridad Pineiro brings two of my favorite things, archeology and romance, together in this intriguing and mystical tale of a search for hidden treasure and a missing mother. THE FIFTH KINGDOM is an entertaining adventure flavored with romance and a bit of ancient history. Great characters, non-stop action, and flaring passion will keep you reading late into the night.

Dr. Deanna Vasquez spends much of her time teaching children at a private school. Her breaks are spent exploring the world while pursing her archeological work. Her expertise in Mesoamerican history isn't surprising given that both of her parents are renowned scholars in this area. Raised by her father, Deanna hasn't seen her mother in years; not since she left to search for Montezuma's tomb and didn't come back. Deanna has little interest in re-connecting with her mother until CIA agent Bill Santana seeks Deanna's help after her mother is abducted by terrorists. Deanna finds she must help in any way she can. Suddenly, Deanna finds herself on a plane to Mexico on a quest to find her mother and bring down a terrorist organization. In the process, Bill and Deanna find that they have a mutual attraction they can't deny.

Dr. Deanna Vasquez hasn’t spoken to her mother in years, not since the renowned archaeologist abandoned her family in her quest to find the lost tomb of Montezuma. When CIA agent Bill Santana shows up in her classroom with the news that her mother has been abducted by terrorists, Deanna has to help in any way she can.

Bill needs Deanna’s expertise to determine the location of her mother’s latest find, before her kidnappers do. He fears whatever mysteries the tomb holds could be deadly in the wrong hands. In an effort to make contact with the terrorist cell, Bill accompanies Deanna to Mexico posing as her fiancé—a ruse made doubly dangerous because of the very real heat between them...
