New Novel Thrills with Deep Sea Hunt for Ancient Japanese Treasure
Rachel and Chase are back in Buried Threads, the sequel to Kaylin McFarren’s Severed Threads, and this time not only has their romance heated up but so has the danger when they are hired to find ancient Japanese Samurai swords under the sea.
Troutdale, OR—A desperate race to save Japan from a monk’s terrifying prophecy and find three ancient Samurai swords buried in the ocean’s depths sends two romantically involved treasure hunters on the quest of a lifetime in Kaylin McFarren’s Buried Threads (ISBN 9781492120469, Creative Edge Publishing LLC 2013).
Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen, successful partners in a treasure-hunting business, are trying to sort out their feelings for one another. But neither expects the turn their business or relationship will take when they are hired to find three ancient samurai swords in the Sea of Japan.
The adventure begins when Shinzo, a clairvoyant Buddhist monk, experiences a frightening vision of Japan being completely destroyed by an enormous earthquake. To prevent the earthquake from happening, he hires Rachel and Chase to recover three stolen samurai swords belonging to a cursed prince, and they must accomplish this within four days before the next blue moon appears and the prophecy comes true.
Matters do not get easier when Chase withholds some information from Rachel that she has to find out for herself the hard way. Her partner is also completely in love with her, but Rachel’s insecurities and fear of abandonment create a wall between them. As chaos ensues and the couple find themselves on a journey through shark-infested waters, creepy caves, and haunted hidden tombs, they must learn to trust one another. And when dangerous Yakuza gang members threaten them, their love will be tested like never before.
Full of erotic suspense and wild adventures, Buried Threads, is a book readers are finding themselves buried in until the last page. Kirkus Reviews proclaims that the Threads series has “plenty at stake, erotic chemistry, dastardly villains, a lost relic, an unusual setting and a touch of the supernatural…. The full package of thrills and romance.” Suzanne Gattis of the Pacific Book Review admits, “I couldn’t put the book down because I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next. Many of the ups and downs were not obvious, and I enjoyed the surprise as each revelation was made.” Lee Gooden of ForeWord Clarion reviews puts McFarren in good company with other popular authors, declaring, “combines the action and adventure found in a Clive Cussler novel, the plotting and romance of Danielle Steel’s books, and the erotic energy and supernatural elements of a work by Shayla Black.” And Lauren Calder of “Affaire de Coeur magazine” encourages readers to, “Dive right in; the water is full of danger, intrigue, and passion. This treasure-hunting jewel of a story will hold the reader captive to the very last page.”
