Publisher's Summary

One former Navy SEAL. One adventurous photographer. One lost jungle temple.

Former Navy SEAL Callum Ward has one motto - live life to the fullest. He saw the worst of war and lost good friends, but now he works for Treasure Hunter Security. When he's not providing security for archeological digs and invaluable museum exhibits, or off on daring treasure hunts, he's rock climbing, racing, or skiing. Nothing - and no one - has ever tempted him to slow down...until on an expedition into the Cambodian jungle, he has to work with one opinionated, prickly photographer, Dani Navarro. But soon their straightforward trek to find a lost temple turns deadly, and Cal and Dani find themselves under attack from a dangerous black-market antiquities ring prepared to kill.

Dani Navarro lives for her photography. For years, it's been her escape from her family and their frivolous lifestyle, affairs, and dramas. With her camera in hand, she travels the world, capturing other people's moments and avoiding messy entanglements. At first, she thinks Cal Ward is no different from all the other men she's known, but as their expedition turns into a hazardous dash through uncharted jungle, she uncovers a tough, intelligent, and sexy protector. Together, they must outwit their pursuers and find not only a lost temple...but a priceless, powerful artifact.

exploration and discovery in Cambodia

Love, love, love!

This second book picks up where we left off, but focuses on Callum this time. He is sent on a mission that should be routine because there seems to be no major valuables that would attract the unsavory Silk Road villians. This expedition to find the temple of God-King Jayavarman II in Cambodia.

Before he even gets started, Callum meets and is attracted to photographer Dani. He soon gets sidetracked, however, when he notices what look like members of Silk Road during a mugging attempt. The routine mission turns life-threatening when they realize that rumors of possibly finding King Jayavarmin II's actual Linga artifact have indeed caused Silk Road's unwanted attention.

As with Undiscovered, there is romance, suspense, and an mythical element that adds depth and credence to the story. Thoroughly enjoyable. Can hardly wait for the next one.
*On a side note, I'd just recently watched Expedition Unknown with Josh Gates which featured King Jayavarmin II, lingas, and nagas... which only enhanced my reading as Anna was dead on in her information.

Great Second in the series

Great follow up to Undiscovered. We leave the deserts of the Middle East for the jungles of Cambodia. I love the treasure hunter aspect and the touch of paranormal (legends must have a toe in reality, after all).
The writing is crisp and carries the reader through the action at a pace that leaves you stunned when you hit the conclusion. Stella Bloom is great bringing the characters to life and matching the flow of the writing
I can't wait for the next book.

GOOD

BOOK REVIEW......
Good story. The characters could have used with being a little more fleshed out. I didn't really feel like I knew them by the end of the story. But over all it was good

Thrilling Steamy Story!

This second book in the Treasure Hunter Security series is another thrilling, action packed adventure! This is Cal and Dani's suspenseful and sizzling story. Ex Navy Seal, Callum “Cal” Ward runs Treasure Hunter Security with his siblings. He lives life to the extreme, not wanting to settle down. He has been hired to protect a group going on an expedition into the Cambodian jungle. This group includes a courageous, prickly, sexy photographer, Dani Navarro, She would rather view life through the lense than intereact with insincere, shallow people. She gets one look at the charming, sexy security expert, and doesn't think he is any different. But as they get deeper into the jungle and encounter dangers of all kinds, Cal and Dani learn that first impressions can be deceiving. Dani discovers an honorable, kind, sexy protector who makes her desire things she never expected. Cal finds the brave, independant woman makes him want more as well. But a dangerous group of thieves are hot on their heels, wanting the priceless artifacts they are in search of. If the thieves don't kill them first, the dark, dangerous jungle just might. I am really loving this fast paced, exciting series. Just imagining these daring adventures to find fabled treasure is so provocative, and Hackett does a great job making us feel all the excitiment. Stella Bloom's fabulous narration also helps to make us feel like we are right there in the middle of all the action! She delivers all the excitement, emotion, wit, and steam, bringing these characters and story to life, beautifully. This was so much fun, I can't wait to listen to the next books in Teasure Hunter Security series!

Misconceptions vs. connection

Anna Hackett does not disappoint with this series!! She weaves wonderful stories full of action, physical attraction, and knowledge of historical sites without being boring. Dani and Callum’s relationship started with unfounded misconceptions about one another and developed into the loving connection both needed! Callum provided the protection and understanding Dani denied herself but really wanted. Dani provided the chase Callum desired while still maintaining her independent spirit!! Stella Bloom’s narration is excellent as always!!

He hated jungles!

This second audiobook in this series was a great listen. There was an interesting storyline and good characters. The heroine is a photographer for an archeological expedition to Cambodia. The hero is their security and when they are ambushed in the jungle by Silk Road mercenaries, the adventures begin. Narration was well done!

Tricky book for narrating done exceptionally well!

I've already praised book #1 on how i love this team of Anna Hackett and Stella Bloom. SB has brought Anna's characters even more fun than they already were the first time reading them through. There is a wide variety of secondary characters with many accents, and I personally felt SB did an excellent job making it work, yet subtly as not to distract from the story. Great job all around for AH and SB!!

Looking forward to listening to the rest of the Series!

Steady pace

.....as the book starts and then the gloves come off !
A very interesting and engrossing storyline (apart from a little too much R &R !) that kept up the interest. The lead villain a bit OTT but ...
My main part for this review is the most excellent narration.
Ms Bloom has very pleasing diction and a particular skill with differing characters and accents. She made the entire book very worthwhile.

The Book

Buckle up and get ready for a sizzling fantasy action adventure through the temples and jungles of Cambodia, complete with HEA.

'Uncharted', the second book in Anna Hackett's Treasure Hunter Security series takes us on another wild and wonderful, trail-blazing adventure from the spectacular temples of Angkor Watt and the nearby town of Siem Reap through the jungles of Cambodia in search of a lost temple that isn't really lost and onwards as ancient Khmer and Chinese myths about Phnom Kulen, the Temple of Mahendraparvata, the crowning of King Jayavarman II, the 9th century founder of the Khmer Empire and spectacular legends of jewel encrusted temple walls and great treasures are brought brilliantly to life in this absolutely spellbinding, action packed and sizzling fantasy adventure romance. The scenery has changed dramatically, but exactly as the first book did, this fantastic thriller had me totally hooked and on the edge of my seat, rooting for the good guys from beginning to end and I really didn't want to put it down. Once again the exceptional storytelling skills of one of my all-time favourite sci-fi/fantasy romance writers are on display as she weaves another terrific action packed adventure.

Treaure Hunter Security has been hired from day one of the field trip part of the search for the lost temple to act as both guide and security for the Angkor Archeology Project led by British Archaeologist Dr Benjamin Oakley, and the lucky person assigned to the job is Callum Ward, ex-Navy SEAL and co-owner of Treasure Hunter Security. Cal has been to Angkor Watt before on R&R with his SEAL team and is happy to go back to a place he really wanted another look at anyway. Killing time by wandering around the temples, his attention is grabbed by a photographer and being something of a man-slut, he attempts to hook up with her. Unfortunately for him, she's all too familiar with 'his type' and turns him down flat. Not the reaction he's used to, or was hoping for, and that gets his attention even more....

World renowned archaeology photographer Daniella Navarro is happily taking pictures amongst the temples and tourists at Angkor Watt when she attracts the unwelcome attention of a man whose type she grew up surrounded by. She's already pigeon-holed him as someone to avoid when he tries to hook up with her and the dumbfounded reaction to her flat refusal almost makes her laugh. Coming to the rescue of a woman trying to fight off a mugger and hang on to her backpack, Dani is pretty handy at defending herself, but it's Cal to the rescue, and not for the last time on this trip....

Led by a woman known as Raven, a team from the ruthless black market antiquities ring 'Silk Road' are already in the area and plotting to get the treasure for themselves, but Cal has other ideas, and Dani decides to join in.... let the mayhem begin.

I really don't want to give spoilers and ruin the suspense built into this thrilling action adventure, but I will say there's lots of action, bad guys everywhere, some serious sizzle and steamy bits along with some life or death situations and a happily ever after as another confirmed bachelor bites the dust and makes a commitment to the woman he loves. Think Indianna Jones meets Tomb Raider but without all the booby-traps, add a little Relic Hunter for good measure and turn them into a jigsaw puzzle of clues that becomes a map and follow along.

I absolutely loved it. I really wish I could give it lots and lots of stars instead of the 5 I'm limited to and I'll be reading this book again before too long - in fact I've already got withdrawal symptoms and I can hear it calling me. This book is definitely on the list of the ones I'd rescue if the house was burning down, and if this was a film, I'd be watching it over and over again.



The Audio

I got this terrific story as an ebook when it was first published in 2016, and was totally hooked. I've read it a few times since, but I now have intermittent problems with my eyes, so, despite being a bit dubious about it, I've turned to audio books to fill my need to re-read my favourites. I tried out audio books a few years ago, but was pretty quickly put off by the seriously bad, even dreadful, narration which turned my wonderful, gritty, action packed adventures with romance into wishy washy, girly girl romances with few, or more frequently, none, of the thriller overtones that the majority of my books have. It was so awful that I gave up on them for years. Then, last year, when I was desperate, I listened to the audio for a book by Anna Hackett, one of my all-time favourite authors, discovered a whole new and tremendously good set of narrators and decided to give them a try. Brilliant! It seems that Ms Hackett gets significantly better narrators than some I've listened to and Stella Bloom, the narrator of this book is really very good, actually, one of the best I've listened to. She seems to understand the all action, gritty nature of both the characters and the story, maintaining the edginess to the very end and I wasn't disappointed in any way, so I got all the other books in the series that are available as audio versions to back up my kindle eBooks, just so I don't get withdrawal symptoms when I can't read them, and I freely admit I've listened to this one more than once since I got it. I find I listen a lot more than I read these days and the audio versions also have the added bonus of allowing me to do other things whilst listening, not that I actually get many chores done, I'm too busy being part of the story and fighting the bad guys. I was lucky enough to get a free code for this audio book, and as I had already posted an honest review of the ebook several years ago, I decided to update that review with my personal opinion of the audible narration, especially as I've been so disenchanted by audio books in the past.
