Blurb: Meet Scott Sapphire—lover of French champagne, Belgian chocolate and dangerous men. He is suave. He is sexy. He is a man of the world—and a man that the world desperately wants to catch.
For Scott Sapphire is the greatest jewel thief of our time.
Dashing. Daring. And always neck-deep in trouble.
But when Scott’s latest heist lands him in possession of a map to a rare and precious orchid, it’ll take more than bedroom eyes and a charming smile to stay one step ahead of one of the world’s most powerful business tycoons, as well as keep the CIA off Scott’s back and a handsome special agent out of his pants—or maybe not.
From the Venice canals to the Amazon rainforest, from Rio de Janeiro to the casinos of Monte Carlo, comes a brand new gay hero as irresistible as diamonds and pearls.
Adventure has a new name! And that name is Scott Sapphire.
Review: Scott Sapphire has it all—he’s handsome, charming, “light on his feet and quick with his hands.” He travels to exotic lands, meets dangerous men, and he loves his Belgian chocolate. Scott has the skill to retrieve items that Artie locates, and then he sells it to the highest bidder on the black market. But, there is a major plan behind all the wheeling and dealing: the money goes anonymously to charities and nonprofit organizations.
Scott heads to Monte Carlo to acquire a map that will take him into the Rain Forest for the Emerald Orchid. The orchid is known to be powerful and dangerous, if it falls into the wrong hands. In the hotel casino, he finds Ella and Oscar Hudson, and Tatyana Romanov, who will make a trade of the map and the Golden Egg. Scott can’t help but notice Tatyana’s companion. Blonde, brown-eyed, Texan drawl: Thomas Truman. Needless to say, Scott and Thomas meet again, and the adventure into the Rain Forest becomes dangerous and hair raising.
Scott Sapphire and the Emerald Orchid is Indiana Jones and Robin Hood all wrapped up into one fast paced and over-the-top-exciting, action packed tale. Geoffrey Knight takes us on a whirlwind tour, from Italy to Paris to London to Monaco and the Rain Forest. Watch out if your squeamish, though. There are tarantulas, alligators, piranhas, leeches, ants, one giant anaconda, and more! But there’s also a tender side to this tale of two orphans, and how Scott and Sophie became a family to each other, and meet up with Arthur “Artie” Dodge.
And, just when you think there’s an HEA… there’s a plot twist. But Mr. Knight also gives us humorous moments that will definitely make you laugh. I want more and am so looking forward to the next adventure with Scott Sapphire!
