About this ebook

She’d left him in the past…

Underwater photographer Katy Ryan snags the assignment of a lifetime—the chance to explore the wreck of RMS Lusitania. But there’s a catch: Her infuriating ex-fiancé is on the exploration team.

…He’s about to blow up her future.

Declan “Dex” Fitzgerald is a treasure hunter on a mission. Priceless necklaces are hidden in the wreck of the Lusitania. With a loose idea of where to find the gems, and even looser morals, Dex wrangles a last-minute job on the team. And realizes he’ll have to work alongside his uptight-but-sexy-as-hell ex.

And they’re not the only ones in pursuit of the treasure. With sparks flying and oxygen tanks running low, can Dex and Katy retrieve the gems before the bad guys?

I read this in the romancing the alpha box set. what a promising start to the new ballybeg series! and what a hot cover. I've had the privilege of reading Her Treasure Hunter Ex and it makes the box set worth every single penny. Her treasure hunter ex brings us bag to Balleybag with Dex Fitzgerald and his ex fiance Katy. Imagine the surprise when the two realize they are stuck bunking together. Sparks fly as the two are searching the wreckage of the Lusitania. I LOVE these Irish based stories, I love the language, the dynamics and even the insults. I enjoyed the danger aspect in this story while the crew looked for the hidden Jewels. 5 stars! Can't wait to read other books in this series

As always, Keane has created a story that will hold you captive from cover to cover. The fast paced, suspense-filled novel was one that I simply couldn`t put down. The mix of romance and under water archaeology was intense. I love how realistic it was all portrayed. The plot was full of twists and turns, keeping me on my toes and making the story impossible to put down. Keane’s unique and varied cast truly enhanced the story. I loved the second chance that the main characters were given together. Their similar beliefs and different reactions made them stand out. Also, I found their jobs to be fantastic. The supporting cast really added to the story as well. Trying to figure out who everyone really was, above and beyond how they presented themselves. Was a great deal of fun. Sean’s appearance, tying this novel back to Keane’s Ballybeg series, really brought it all home to me. This novel is definitely the perfect start to Keane’s new series. It is a fast paced, quick read that I devoured in a single sitting. And the last line of the story? Absolutely priceless. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
