Goddess Fish Book Tour
SECRETS OF AN AZTEC TEMPLE by Paty Jager
An Action adventure with romantic elements
Revenge is not always sweet…
Isabella Mumphrey can’t leave a puzzle alone. This time she attempts to use her anthropology knowledge to uncover who is stealing priceless artifacts from an Aztec Temple in Mexico City. The discovery will certainly prove her worth to the World Intelligence Agency.
Tino Costantine is in Mexico City, too. He has infiltrated a drug lord’s organization to find enough evidence to not only prove the man’s illegal activities, but to bring him down for numerous deaths. Namely those of Tino’s family.
But when the love of his life, Isabella, strolls into his enemy’s home, Tino’s challenged by the choice of saving her or fulfilling his revenge.
Isabella uncurled and rolled her shoulders before removing her glasses and rubbing her eyes. She’d examined two ledgers of artifacts extracted from Templo Mayor. Five more volumes stood on the end of the table in the inventory room in the basement of the museum. Her stomach rumbled and she looked at her watch. One. Morning would come too fast. Getting back to the hostel, finding something to eat, and sleeping were warranted with the way her body and eyes felt. The rest of the books could wait until morning. She wanted clear evidence of the missing items before Saturday. Once she determined Garza stole the artifacts, she’d tell Tino and then the director.
She stood, stretched her arms above her head, and turned to leave. A man stood in the shadows of a bookcase. Her heart thumped two hard beats as she swallowed a startled gasp. To show fear would give him the advantage. How had he entered without her hearing? Easy, she was so absorbed in the findings she blocked out all else. I’ll have to work on staying alert at all times.
Slowing her breathing and studying the man who’d yet to move, she readied her stance for evasive actions. Years of taekwondo with the addition of her WIA training had her prepared for an attack.
The man walked out of the shadow and as soon as she witnessed his movements her heart raced not of fear but of anticipation.
