Book Description:
As the mercenary captain of the Lady Corsair, Yasmeen has learned to keep her heart as cold as steel, her only loyalty bound to her ship and her crew. So when a man who once tried to seize her airship returns from the dead, Yasmeen will be damned if she gives him another opportunity to take control.

Treasure-hunter Archimedes Fox isn't interested in the Lady Corsair -- he wants her cold-hearted captain and the valuable da Vinci sketch she stole from him. To reclaim it, Archimedes is determined to seduce the stubborn woman who once tossed him to a ravenous pack of zombies, but she's no easy conquest.

When da Vinci's sketch attracts a dangerous amount of attention, Yasmeen and Archimedes journey to Horde-occupied Morocco -- and straight into their enemy's hands. But as they fight to save themselves and a city on the brink of rebellion, the greatest peril Yasmeen faces is from the man who seeks to melt her icy heart...

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
We've read about Yasmeen throughout the series and I'm very glad she got a book. She's a tough pirate captain and she's a tough woman. Often you end up having the man be weak in some way but what I loved about this story is that Archimedes is just a tough though with a humorous and playful side and a willingness to let Yasmeen be the Captain.

Archimedes is a fantastic character full of humor and silliness and steam. He's a wonderfully crafted hero with a very Indiana Jones feel. He also has a history with our characters and things get more into the history of the series which I enjoyed because it was informative without being boring.

Overall a very entertaining installment for the series.
