Anastasia Petrov, codename Sapphire, enjoys her position on the elite female-only mercenary team. As their resident medic and biologist, she gets to travel the world and experience the diversity that is the animal kingdom. Though she loves things that bite and sting, her heart has always been with the aquatic wildlife on the southern Africa coast – the cape fur seals. So, when an old colleague of hers contacts her about a recent alarming dive in the population, she rallies the GEMs to help her figure it out even though it means coming face to face with the one man that first stole then broke her heart, Roman Sonnah.
As the head of a multi-million dollar non-profit organization, Roman has his hands full. Working his charms to secure funding is nothing compared to seeing Ana once again. He knows it's going to take a lot of groveling to get back in her good graces, but he's willing to do the work - that is if they all can stay alive long enough.
When the GEMs arrive, they find themselves in the crosshairs of an increasingly violent plot. But the real question is - Who is behind the escalation?
