For assistant curator Ian Tunbridge, the trip to a California dig site was supposed to be uneventful. Awakened by gunfire and running for his life truly contradicted that perception. What seems like miserable luck changed when he meets American photographer Lucas Arpini.

Lucas knew Ian’s expertise would be the key to finding an artifact believed a myth. Now, if he could only gain Ian’s trust, Lucas is sure they can escape their captors and discover the location of the artifact.

Two men, one hair-raising adventure and danger around every corner make Aries: Riddle Me Wicked anything but a dull story. Vivien Dean takes us into the lives of Ian and Lucas, two opposite men who rely on each other through this journey. Their different strengths and personalities kept the story flowing, as much as the chase of the villains. I was a bit disappointed with the ending. I was so caught up in the adventure that I had hoped to see the men reap the rewards, but their eventual desire to spend more time together soothed that one ruffled feather. Overall, I found the story to be well written and plotted and enjoyed it immensely. Those who enjoy action and suspense will enjoy reading Ms. Dean’s latest release.
