There were diamonds in that old family mine. Skye Blackbird was sure of it. She'd he able to prove it too, and fulfill her Ojibwa chieftain father's dream if it weren't for paleontologist Jake Baxter who was searching for dinosaur bones in the same spot. When sabotage occurs at the dig site, Jake isn't sure if the culprits are angry locals or a rival paleontologist. But someone doesn't want that particular piece of earth disturbed. As the body count mounts, it appears that Jake and Skye may both be targets. What Jake has managed to unearth is a decades-old murder that someone will do anything to keep secret. Trying to ignore their growing attraction, Jake and Skye work together to stay alive.
