A prof known for his anti-Christian jabs finds himself falling for a reluctant church volunteer without remembering her from class... and wonders why she holds him at arm’s length.
Coming summer, 2021!
Closet believer Lyssa Quinn steps out of her comfort zone to help coordinate the Pot of Gold Treasure Hunt her church is using as an outreach event. She’s not expecting her former humanities prof — young, handsome, anti-Christian Kirk Kennedy — to be at Jewel Lake at all, let along in a position to provide sponsorship to the geocaching event, but how can she trust someone who once shredded her best friend’s faith?
Kirk’s treasure hunt takes him down a path he hadn’t intended as he searches for opportunities to connect with Lyssa and her intriguing sparkle. How can he convince her there is more than one kind of treasure? And can she remind him of the greatest prize of all?
Topaz Treasure first released in Rainbow’s End, a four-author Romancing America anthology published by Barbour Publishing in May, 2012. This version has been rewritten with 25% new material and moved from Osage Beach, Missouri, to Jewel Lake, Montana.
