Throwback Thursday: Treasures Lost, Treasures Found by Nora Roberts

Author: Nora Roberts
First published in 1986 by Silhouette

Kate had inherited a pile of mysterious ocean charts. Her practical, no-nonsense father had had a dream -- sunken treasure -- and he'd left a map leading to a gold-laden ship.

Determined to complete her father's explorations, she turned to the only man with the ability to tackle the treacherous dive deep beneath the Atlantic: Ky Silver.

Kate had left Ky four years ago, frightened of the needs he awoke in her, yet now she needed him more than ever. But working with Ky meant more than searching for gold pieces -- it meant plunging her heart into the depths of love...

This is definitely one of Nora's earliest romances with that totally giggle worthy cover! While her writing has much improved over the years, it is still an enjoyable read.  I enjoyed the overall story.  There was the potential for some suspense with the sunken treasure hunt, so I was a bit disappointed to see that it was more straight romance. 

 As with most long lost love stories., the relationship was intense and fully believable since Kate and Ky have a history together.  I liked Ky more than Kate.  He clearly loved her and wanted to take care of her.  I thought Kate was a little wishy-washy.  I mean who would chose to live in Connecticut when you could live on a beautiful island?  Anyway, the ending was sweet but I would have liked an epilogue.  But overall, I was content.
