Uncovered Treasures: Challenge of the Deep by Gina Manis 💕 Book Tour, Freebie Offer and $20 Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Pirate Fantasy Romance)

The temptations of love will only bring death sooner.

A new element is on the horizon.

Five years ago, Brier left everyone behind, including the woman he loved, Celine. The sea has now become his home, and the waters are not as calm as they once were.

A storm blows in and wrecks his vessel on a deserted island. At least, that is what he thinks until the mage from his past shows up. Alice isn’t the sweet nun he remembers. She pushes him away, but there are dangers on this island, and he can’t leave her alone.

Alice can’t believe her sister mages have sacrificed her to do the bidding of the Elemental Fire. He wants to make Brier the Fifth Element by giving him peace and love, only to strip it away and turn him into an Elemental God.

Loving Brier is not an option. It doesn’t matter he makes her feel things she never has before. To let him in, she will give her heart over to be broken.

The temptations of love will only bring death sooner.

This is a pirate fantasy adventure romance built in an Elemental World and will be a total of three books. It is told in an exciting new twist from mostly a man's point of view. See personally the thoughts that run through a man's head when he comes up against his greatest challenge. The love of a woman.

“I ran away from my grandmother to the convent because I knew her magic wouldn’t work there. If I left, she could control me again and so I stayed and made a new life. I feared my own magic for so long, but when the time came that I lost it... The loss ripped at my soul."

“What you did for Celine and her family was remarkable,” I breathe. “No one would have been so giving as you for what was needed. It is okay to feel pain and loss for what you gave up. You are so brave to have done so.”

“I’m not brave, Brier.” She turns away from me as if she is ashamed and I catch her arm, bring her back around to face me once more.

“You are. I can see it.”

She shakes her head, trying to pull away from me, “No, I’m not.”

“Yes, you are!” I raise my voice, not letting her go. “Listen to me, Alice. I am a hard man and I have lived an even harder life. There is no way they would have sent you to me if you were weak. If you were not the one.”

“They sent me to you because I am broken.” She exclaims, and her words hit me hard in the chest. “We are both broken, Brier.”

Her tears fall, and I can’t help myself as I pull her into my arms. She comes willingly and cries into my chest, and I never want to let her go. She speaks the truth and somehow; I feel closer to her than I have to anybody in my life.

She may be broken as I am, but I need her. I need her help, her sweet, gentle heart and soul, to see me through this. Whatever is to come, I will gladly face it with her beside me.

“I need you, Alice,” I whisper in her hair, kissing it lightly. “I need you.”

She leans back in my arms and looks up at me. I am surprised when her hand comes up between us, and she touches my face along my scar. Never have I let anyone touch it, but it feels so right that she does.

Her gaze holds mine as she says, “I fear I will fail you.”

“I will take the chance,” I whisper to her, bringing my hand up to her face and running my fingers along her jaw. Her tears only make her more beautiful, as I know they are for me more than her. “Because you are my goddess.”

My hand cups the back of her neck as I gaze into her eyes, and the urge to kiss her hits me. It would be so easy to pull her face to mine. To taste her as I have craved since seeing her again.

She tenses in my arms, and I release her before I act on my impulses. The emotional connection I feel with her is more than just passion and desire. As I listen to her share her past of heartache and pain, the urge to be honest with my own feelings arises. The need to cherish her overcomes me and spills over to my physical response. One that she doesn’t have for me.

The brave man she thinks she sees can’t even look at her right now. “Head back to the party, Alice.”


I don’t wait for her to finish. The ground trembles under my feet as I walk away. The emotional connection I feel with her is something I have always run from. I gave myself over to it with Celine; she broke me from ever wanting to care again. It has taken me years to find my peace with it or what little I have.

Of all the mages they could send me, they sent me one virtuous and innocent in every way. The Elemental Gods are cruel to tempt me with her, but I will not destroy Alice with my dark soul. Never.
