In the shadow of a pyramid in Mexico, a serpent god waits, and an ancient evil lives on...
The last thing historian Priscilla Mars expects to find in the mailbox is a letter from her arrogant, cheating ex, Dalton Mooring, begging her for a visit on his deathbed. With her PhD in hand and no job on the horizon, she sets off for Mexico and the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza.
When she arrives, Priscilla realizes that all is not what it seems. Dalton's true motives come to light—to win Priscilla's heart back and find a legendary treasure with her help—and Dalton's estranged wife, Anjelica, erupts in a show of jealousy. Meanwhile, attempts on her life convince Priscilla that someone wants her dead. To complicate matters, Dalton's local rival, the troubled Kent Sterling, warns her against Dalton and threatens to steal her heart the closer she gets to him.
Even as she is haunted by visions of the scaly, fearsome serpent god Kukulkan hovering over the sacred waters of the ruins, Priscilla must unravel the mysteries of Chichen Itza and find out whom she can trust.
