Rock of Ages (Soft cover)
by Alexandra Duncan    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
Megan could taste blood and realized she had been biting her lips to ease the pain and frustration. Finally, with a small grunt, she cut through the last strand of rope. Then she froze as Charlotte pinned her to the cold cement with a look of contempt. Had Charlotte been waiting for her to finish cutting? Had she been watching all along, playing some macabre game? Megan?s held her breath as Charlotte got up off the barrel and walked over to her.
"You," Charlotte said, pointing one stiletto fingernail in Megan?s direction, "just stay put. I have to go outside for half a minute. Don?t try anything stupid! Hear me?"
Megan nodded. She sat quietly and counted to ten, barely allowing herself to breathe again. Then she shook her hands free and undid the knots around her ankles. The ropes were tight and harder to loosen than Megan had anticipated but she soon was on her feet, ready to bolt. If she could just find the door! But first?the Rock of Ages. Her hand curled around the serpents and she was about to slip it into her coat pocket when a click sounded in the silent building.

Synopsis
When Megan Cameron, freelance journalist, suspects her hotel partner and beloved godmother, Amelia, of having unintentionally stolen the legendary Rock of Ages, an invaluable Celto-Christian treasure, from the Edinburgh Museum of Antiquities, she dismisses the possibility as ludicrous.
Their innocent calm on the Scottish island of Arran is disturbed by the arrival of three men. As events unfold, Megan is convinced that one of these men is responsible for switching the real Rock of Ages with the replica bought by Amelia. Even when the evidence points to Ben, Megan discovers she is hopelessly and dangerously in love with him. Set among the diverse and lovely landscape of Arran, this romantic mystery blossoms with the double sting as Megan learns about trust, not only in others, but in herself.
