Seventeen-year-old Theo has had an unconventional upbringing because her father, Richard Fox, is a treasure hunter, but when Theo’s mother passed away, Theo’s father became overprotective and now leaves Theo behind while he goes on adventures.  When Theo's old boyfriend, Huck, shows up and tells Theo that Richard Fox has sent Huck to protect Theo from dark happenings from his latest treasure hunt, Theo and Huck find themselves on the run.  The duo tries to uncover mysteries surrounding Richard’s whereabouts and the artifact he’s researching.  

I got totally pulled into this romantic adventure.  The artifact they are chasing is a ring that has history with Vlad the Impaler, making it dark and supernatural.  I loved the quick pace and the chemistry between Theo and Huck.
