If the guy in her office weren’t so damn gorgeous she might be able to think properly. But he was yummy. In fact, he was so unbelievably handsome Samantha was staring, something that was brought to her attention by the long, masculine fingers snapping in front of her face.

“Miss Tremain.” His deep voice, though soft, was filled with exasperation. “Are you listening to me?”

“Beg your pardon?” She blinked rapidly.

He exhaled and took the seat in front of her desk. Crossing one ankle over the opposite knee, he bared to her view an impressive bulge behind the tightened lacings of his pants.

“Animal,” she breathed. The bulge jerked in response.


Sam coughed into her hand as her face heated. “A-animal skin.”

“Yeah. It is.” Bright blue eyes flashed briefly before narrowing. “I was told that you’re the foremost expert on literary antiquities in this part of the galaxy, Miss Tremain. Is that right or should I be looking for help elsewhere?”

“Mr. Bronson—”


“Oh…” The way he said his own name, like it was a sensual threat, made her shiver. And the way he was dressed, in animal skin and some billowing material for a shirt, made her mouth dry. “Why aren’t you wearing a bio suit?”

A dark brow rose. “You want to talk about my clothes?” He shook his head. “You brainy types are always a little weird.”

“Look who’s talking,” she retorted, stung by his comment, one which she’d heard a thousand times. “You are a twenty-third century mercenary who dresses in nineteenth century clothing while tracking down a legendary twenty-first century treasure. Shouldn’t you be doing something else? Killing for hire or something of that nature?”

Blowing a loose tendril of hair from her face, Sam stood and began to pace. As long as she didn’t look at that breathtaking face, she could keep her wits about her. His dark hair, tan skin and eyes like the Laruvian Ocean were bad enough. When you added in the broad shoulders, tapered hips and animal skin covered bulge, she had a living wet dream sitting right in her office.

Rick Bronson chuckled and the warm sound of amusement made her womb clench. “Whatever a mercenary does, he does for credits. Hunting treasure is a hunt for credits. Pretty easy to figure out.”

“But why this particular treasure?”

“It’s worth a fortune.”

“It’s rumored to be worth a fortune. Just as it’s rumored to exist. You’re most likely wasting your time.” She hazarded a side-glance and her heart skipped a beat at his soft smile. “It seems an odd treasure for a man to hunt for. Why not the Draken Cup? Or the Sarian Stone? Why the erotic e-books?”

“That’s a silly question.” The curve of his lips deepened. “You know how much those Romantica stories are worth. Ever since the Conservative Censorship Committee succeeded in banning erotica and erotic romance back in 2015 it’s almost impossible to find. All the print books have long since turned into dust, but the remaining e-books that manage to make it to the black market bring in a small fortune. Can you imagine how much a database full of those stories would be worth?”

Sam sighed with longing. “Now that the ban has been revoked, finding those stories would not only return literary treasures to the people, but it would help lift this sexual repression that has stifled us all for so long.”

“You sound like a woman who appreciates the erotic,” Rick purred. He stood and came toward her, his gait slow and filled with seductive promise. The blaster strapped to one thigh and the laser sword strapped to the other only emphasized how dangerous he was. Against the backdrop of her small office, he was even more intimidating.

And tantalizing.

Industry Reviews

    • Euro-Reviews: “From the second these two meet, sparks begin to fly. The chemistry between Rick and Sam sizzled and the sweet vulnerability of these two characters gave them both added depth. This was a fantastic story and I have to salute Ms. Day for her genius in coming up with this storyline…her publisher had to be laughing with pure delight!” — December 2005
    • Joyfully Reviewed (Madeline):Treasure Hunters – What a great story! This has so many cute Ellora’s Cave hints and up front illustrations, that those who have been EC customers for years will love this part of the book. Sam and Rick are a terrific pair, and the villain has the perfect amount of smarmy to make the story even more interesting. The sex is great, and in some cases humorous. Treasure Hunters is a great way to start this anthology.” — December 2005
    • Erotic-Escapades:Treasure Hunters by Sylvia Day brought a smile to my face and lust to my heart. Erotic lovemaking and passionate embraces scorch the pages when Rick and Sam give into temptation. I look forward to Ms. Day’s next book.” — December 2005
    • Joyfully Reviewed: “[Treasure Hunters] is a very fun futuristic story. Sam and Rick together sizzle on the page, and I found them enjoyable both in bed and out.” — December 2005
    • Love Romances: “Sam is a wonderful heroine that one can identify with easily. Readers will enjoy placing themselves in the heroine’s shoes, for as long as she is wearing them and placing herself in the heroine’s position, for when she is not. The villain of the piece adds moments of hilarity. This is largely due to the explanations the heroine gives about him. As for the hero, it is great fun to see how enchanted he is with the smart, bookish, real woman that is Sam. Ms Day’s offering is a delightful satire. The premise of the story and the various items and names used regarding the treasure will have readers laughing with glee.” — December 2005
    • Fallen Angels Reviews: “Ms. Day ingenuously weaves the popularity of the 'erotic' romances into her story. Rick and Sam are wonderful together and their chemistry is apparent from the start. Treasure Hunters was a great blend of eroticism and humor.” — December 2005
