Lorina Liddel is terrified of embarrassing herself on national TV as the face of Dig Britain!, a new archeological reality show. Lorina would much rather keep her head down and her hands in the dirt underneath Ainslie Castle, but her onscreen partner is proving to be a major distraction. Brother to the castle's current lord, privileged, perfectly sculpted Gunner Ainslie is a sure bet to keep viewers glued to their screens. Lorina intends to keep the ladies’ man focused on the job at hand, but Gunner is confident he’ll soon have the beauty falling into his bed. When an unexpected find turns the academic dig into an all-out treasure hunt, Lorina and Gunner get swept up in the excitement. But when their steamy tryst is caught on camera, it’ll take more than an award-winning performance to get them out of the hole they're in.

I love the humor and style of MacAlister's work, but the plot of this one is lame. The story is patchy. I have to agree with another reviewer who was put off by a serious topic, HIV, being used in this manner.
This is an excellent book to listen to any time! I was leary about the readers - not a big fan of two readers and wasn't impressed by their reading in "The Importance of Being Alice", but they chenged the accent of the main character, Gunner, to British (not good British, but passable) and that helped keep my attention. The writing is, as always, wonderful! Katie MacAlister is a wonderful story teller. I look forward to the next in the series.
I think I have all of Katie Macalister's books and like all of them because they are light and funny and the characters get themselves in ridiculous but funny scenarios that they eventually find their way out of. But I was actually repulsed by the scenario the main character plotted. I am a health care worker so maybe that is my problem with this, but ugh... I just am not super impressed with the main plot. The two characters were likable for the most part. And there were funny moments. But I was cringing at the main scenario. I don't want to give spoilers in my review so I won't go in to details. I gave it three stars because I didn't give up on it which is usually what I do if I hate the book.
I enjoyed this book. While the romantic lead make was over the top, it was in a fun way. The smidgeon of archeology was interesting. The mystery wasn't that obscure, but that wasn't the point. It was more character driven. Nice light read.
As usual, Katie MacAlister, delivers an entertaining and delightful story! I love her characters and the humor she always manages to have in her books.
Typical storyline by author. Predictable but enjoyable. Narrators excellent but I wish they had had guy read male parts and woman the females rather than alternating chapters. I found changing voices of characters occasionally distracting,
