Archaeologist Ian Grayson has been granted a leave of absence so that he can search for the Lost Temple of Chac, located in Belize. Ian joins Mackenzie Wallace, owner of Tomcat Freight Line, and Ian’s lover of nine months on a road trip so that they can make plans for their expedition to Belize. However, before they can make their delivery, a man from Mac's past is stalking them, intent on extracting his twisted revenge.

The Lost Temple is the second book in the Tomcat Line Series. This well-written, well paced plot features some history of the temple, the adventure of discovering lost artifacts, as well as the loving relationship between Ian and Mac. The developed characters are believable with good interaction between them. Ian has a passion for archaeology and his discoveries are important to the academic community, yet he is torn by the prospect of leaving Mac for an extended period of time. Mac is not willing to be without Ian either, plus Mac is well-trained for missions in hostile environments. Fortunately, Mac owns the trucking company and can afford to follow Ian on his expeditions. Together Ian and Mac make an excellent survival team.

The talented Stevie Woods creates a fantastic tale of intrigue, an enthralling hidden world along with incredibly sensual love scenes. I enjoyed The Lost Temple immensely.
