Searching for a sunken ship off the coast of Peru, treasure hunter Logan Cutter manages to pull a very different kind of prize from the sea — beautiful mystery woman Daniela Rosada. Dani claims she has no memory of how she ended up lost at sea. But with millions of dollars in treasure at stake, Logan suspects she's not telling him the truth...and he's right.

IN TOO DEEP
Dani has good cause to hide the facts from Logan. If he knew her real reason for being onboard his ship, he'd throw her back overboard in a heartbeat. But the closer they get, the deeper she falls for him - and the more he lowers his own powerful defenses. Little do they both know that by falling in love, they've set a course for disaster..

This is my final book for COYER Winter Storm and my third generator book so it is a library book. I’ve now worked my way to current in the Cutter Cay series.  

Vortex is my favorite book so far in the series. I enjoy the ocean setting, the family connections, but so many people trying to kill for personal reasons is beyond belief. This one is a bit more realistic since a woman on the run turns up in the ocean and nearly drowns. The suspense in this type of story brings the couple together more quickly but this was still too quick for me.

Yet, I like the characters, Logan and Daniela. The story of the shipwreck passed down through her family is interesting and I hope we will learn more but doubt it will be in future books. It’s a fun, easy read. I’m looking forward to the fourth book, out next week, Stormchaser,  as  it’s Jonah, the newly found brother.
