In a world on the brink...

Six men. One sunken Spanish galleon. Millions in gold and silver coins lying on the ocean floor. And a past that refuses to let the guys of Deep Six Salvage forget the Navy SEAL motto: the only easy day was yesterday...

There's more than one kind of treasure...

The nation's security has always been CIA agent Olivia Mortier's top priority. But a mission-gone-wrong has begun to make her wonder if there's more to life than risking hers.

And more than one secret at the bottom of the sea...

Only two things could make Leo Anderson abandon his hunt for the legendary lost ship, La Santa Christina, and return to the world of weapons and warfare he swore to leave behind: a capsule of enriched uranium, lost on the ocean floor, and a plea for assistance from the one woman he can't seem to forget...

 
Hell or High Water by Julie Ann Walker

Hell or High Water (Deep Six, #1)Lost treasure, lying at the bottom of the ocean, and one determined crew, former SEALS, are ready to cash in on a dream of riches and gold and history. Will their plans come to pass or will is there something far more deadly awaiting them in Davey Jones’ locker? Personal gain or National Security, what will this former band of well-trained warriors decide? Leo Anderson is torn between a promise made to a dying comrade, duty to self and duty to country. One woman is the key to tipping the scales. Olivia is pure CIA tough, an agent on a mission to stop terrorists from recovering weapons grade uranium lost at sea. Is it worth her life? Like two ships who have passed in the night before, this time they are on a collision course for danger, from both the enemy and their hearts, but first they must survive…

Hell or High Water by Julie Ann Walker sets a course for action, adventure, danger and romance on the high seas. Add some steam and some perfectly timed humor repeated over and over and I didn’t know if I was gripping my seat from the intrigue or to keep from rolling on the floor laughing! Great dialogue, intense emotions, rapidfire pacing and the salty smell of the ocean make this a completely entertaining escape from life on dry land.

Have you ever been deep sea diving? Grab your airtanks, because Ms. Walker is taking us to the floor of the ocean in vivid detail. As the flagship tale in a new series, the tone has been set and it’s a good one as passions and truths are revealed and another strong heroine proves that no specialized combat training can stop a woman on a mission!

I received an ARC edition of Hell or High Water by Julie Ann Walker from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
