During a burglary investigation at the Wisteria Hills Estate,
Detective Brandon King is viewing artifacts in a glass case,
when the collectorís assistant approaches him. She explains
the legend of the love totem and how each individual piece has
the ability to grant its finder their heartís fondest desire.
The last piece of the love totem, Karttikeya, Hindu god of war
is still missing, and the collector is desperate to acquire
it. Brandon is offered the all expense paid assignment.
Brandon views this mission as his last hope to hang on to his
shaky relationship with his secret bisexual lover, who is
engaged to a rich woman. Brandonís desire is to have an out
in the open, committed relationship.
Brandonís research for support in this undertaking, leads him
to Christian Carter, archaeologist extraordinaire, who has in
depth knowledge of artifacts and has been to the jungles of
India. There is an instant attraction between the two; both
gain arousal with only a handshake. Christian accepts the
proposal to guide Brandon with three goals in mind, to seduce
Brandon, to meet the collector and to find his archaeologist
father whom he has never met.
The Lost Temple of Karttikeya
is an action packed Indiana Jones/Mission Impossible adventure
with exotic creatures, magic, and hot, steamy love scenes in
and out of the jungle. Laura Baumbachís gripping and
intricate plot will have you hanging on to the edge of your
chair, hot and covered with sweat to the very end. I truly
enjoyed this story.
