Out of Reach
In a place where a city can be lost hundreds of years . . . they can still find each other. Lily saw the temple of Agulinta on television: a vast stone structure swallowed by the Yucatan jungle, rediscovered only now after hundreds of years. So why did the papers she found after her father's death show the same mysterious carvings that puzzled archaeologists at Agulinta? Her search for answers pulls her to Mexico's southern border, where the journey to the lost temple will take her through jungle and mountain, over waters home to crocodiles and drug runners, and into uncomfortably close quarters with a man whose need to wander has become a way of life . . . Australian Carter Logan's work as a nature photographer has given him the excuse he needs to roam wherever his restless feet take him. But in all the time he's traveled, he's never been drawn to anyone the way he is to this determined, cagey young American. Lily's perseverance through dirt, sweat, and danger to the heart of the ancient temple fires through him. But when the two of them are left alone and stranded in a vicious wilderness, their connection might prove the difference between life and death . . . if the secrets of the past don't come between them first.
