“Buried Threads” by Kaylin McFarren is the second installment in a thrilling romantic suspense series. It offers an exciting mix of erotic adventure, steamy romance, and exotic world travels that will keep readers’ hearts pounding from the first page to the last.
“Buried Threads” continues where “Severed Threads” (Book 1) left off. In this story, we follow Rachel Lyons and her fellow adventurer and business partner, Chase Cohen, on an adventure to Tokyo to recover a highly valuable treasure from a shipwreck in the Sea of Japan—a natural progression from their successful expedition in Book 1:
“With their recent success at recovering the ancient Wanli II shipwreck and the Heart of the Dragon diamond hidden onboard, it seemed she and her new partner were quickly becoming recovery agents for missing hearts in some of the most dangerous places in the world.”
In the process of their latest adventure in Tokyo, Rachel and Chase find that they must overcome challenges and face risks that they had not anticipated before agreeing to what had initially seemed to be a fairly straightforward project. Rachel and Chase soon find themselves in the precarious and unenviable position of having to prevent a major natural disaster from hitting Japan and impacting millions of lives. In order to stop this from happening, they have no choice but to embark on a mission that may be their most dangerous one yet. They determine that the only way to keep the country free from this huge catastrophe is to partner with Yakuza gang members, dive into waters teeming with hungry sharks, and recover three ancient samurai swords, all of which offer the reader highly intense thrills:
“The shark passed by a third time, adding weight to the underwater current. Then it miraculously disappeared. Chase knew at that moment if they didn’t act quickly, there was no chance of escaping. With Rachel at his side, they rose through the water, maintaining a steady, controlled ascent. A quick glance behind…”
Kaylin McFarren comes back strong in this second installment of the series with a unique story that’s guaranteed to delight readers. She ventures into secret Japanese societies, weaves in fascinating cultural and historic nuggets, and yet, keeps the story current, modern, and highly sophisticated. The characters are well developed, and the plotlines are startling, dangerous, and exciting. “Buried Threads” is guaranteed to please readers who enjoy tales of great adventure, chase of dangerous treasures, and a good sprinkle of well-crafted erotic scenes. Not to be missed!
