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 on-screen 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.

"When Lorina joined an archaeological reality show at Ainslie Castle, she didn't expect to fall for the baron's brother, Gunner. Narrators Saskia Maarleveld and Brian Hutchison alternate between Lorina and Gunner's points of view, succeeding equally well with MacAlister's playful romantic mystery. Maarleveld's narration expresses Lorina's worry over her faked photojournalist credentials and her unwilling attraction for Gunner. She also spotlights the irony between Lorina's wild thoughts and sensible actions. Hutchison adopts a baronial British accent for Gunner's casual, upper-class demeanor. The playful sternness in his dialogue with his daughter, Cressida, is charming. His tongue-in-cheek manner ensures that MacAlister's story leans toward light romance despite some darker subplots. Maarleveld and Hutchison balance MacAlister's wacky and heartfelt story elements, making her characters ring true. C.A. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
