Five years after their college friendship ended in bitterness, Paige Matheson and John (Tap) Tappingham meet unexpectedly on a summer excavation in the ancient city of Pompeii, Italy ... Paige has survived a nasty love affair, but still suffers from career burnout. Eager to try new things in new places and return home refreshed, she's excited about exploring Southern Italy, working a dig for the first time, and taking art lessons. The seductive, classical art of Pompeii, with its erotic visions, awakens her senses and primes her for love... Ostensibly, Tap is the dig's bookkeeper, but he's really on a dangerous secret mission. He knows he should stay away from Paige to protect her, but in the shadow of the sleeping giant Vesuvius, long-repressed emotions ignite between them. They can't hold back their feelings ... True to his fears, danger strikes like an adder lying in wait. Will he and Paige survive? And if they do, will their love evolve into something more than a sensual summer fling?
