Editorial Reviews


Adair leaves readers eager to dive into the next novel in her Cutter Cay series. (Booklist on Undertow)

Undertow is the beginning of an exciting and witty new series enriched with fun characters and action-packed drama. I literally could not put it down! (Fresh Fiction)

Grips readers and never slows down as the protagonists struggle with perils including to their hearts with every nautical mile they sail. Fast-paced, Cherry Adair opens her Cutter Salvage series with a strong sea saga. (Genre Go Round Reviews on Undertow)

From the Back Cover

Cherry Adair plunges into the dangerous world of high-sea treasure hunting, where one man's greatest passion unlocks one woman's wildest fantasies…

Princess Bria Visconti demands the return of the money her brother rashly invested in Cutter Salvage. Treasure hunter Nick Cutter is too reckless, too arrogant--and far too handsome--for his own good. But he can't charm his way out of this one. Bria plans to make Nick pay up even if she has to board his boat, don a wet suit, and dive for the treasure herself…


Nick sees Bria as a beautiful but spoiled princess who's never done a day's work in her pampered life. But once they set sail for the dive site, and the legendary fortune in gold the wreck carries, Nick begins to see Bria in a new light. This princess may be out of her depth, but she's ready to take on the hidden danger and excitement a treasure hunt stirs to the surface. Together they must fight unexpected enemies--and reveal their darkest secrets--before they're pulled into a rip current of danger.

"Thrilling and hazardous! When you add in the sensuous sizzle you have the full Adair package."--Romantic Times (4 ½ stars) on Undertow

Princess Gabriella Visconti is on a mission. Her brother the King of their small Italian country foolishly invested all of the country's money in a treasure salvaging business. If her brother cannot pay the debt he owes their country will revert back to the Italian government. Bria cannot stand to watch the country that her beloved parents loved be lost. This is what brings Bria to Morocco. She is determined to get Nick Cutter the owner of the salvage company to refund her brother's investment. If she only knew what she was getting into.

Nick Cutter has his hands full impersonating a terrorist loyalist for T-FLAC and salvaging the largest treasure he's ever discovered. His undercover assignment was supposed to be an easy in and easy out. Unfortunately, things quickly go awry as the princess boards the Scorpion, his salvage ship. Nick is completely uncooperative where the princess is concerned. She may turn him on but he's not about to give her what she wants because he wants her.

Conspiracy and secrets abound as danger lurks closer than anyone thinks. Bria becomes a target and Nick is determined to keep her safe and get her off his ship as soon as possible. Regrettably for Nick boulders keep getting dropped into his plans. He must stick by Bria's side to keep her safe and find out who is behind the attacks. Can Bria change Nick's mind about the investment money in time to save her country? Will these two sexy stubborn singles be able to keep their hands off each other the longer they are together? Who will survive Riptide?

Riptide is an intense action-packed adventure! Whoa, Nick comes off as such a cold hard-edged man. Bria is this vivacious, stubborn woman with plenty of secrets for Nick to ferret out. I liked watching Nick slowly thaw under Bria's attentions.

I was a little nervous when I started Riptide because this is the first Cherry Adair novel I've read and noticed it was the second in the Cutter Cove series. As it turned out, my concern was unwarranted because I had no difficulty following the storyline and IMHO Nick Cutter and Bria Visconti's exciting adventure / romance could be read as a standalone.

Nick Cutter...Treasure hunter, linguist, a larger than life adventurer who I think is described very aptly by the novel's heroine during their first meeting aboard his spectacular multimillion dollar yacht the "Scorpion":

"This man had his own gravitational field, complete with tractor-beam eyes. He had an almost visible aura of raw power kept on an incredibly tight leash."

Riptide © Cherry Adair

If all of Cherry Adair's heroes are as appealing as Nick I can understand why her novels are so popular. The man is not only brilliant and rich, he is tall, dark, ripped and handsome with incredible blue eyes that are a family trait. Bria nicknames him `Mr. Spock' because of his stoic, controlled demeanor. The Scorpion is anchored at sea while Nick and his crew salvage a fortune in artifacts, gems and coins from a sunken galleon the El Puerto. Bria Visconti's brother Draven invested an enormous sum of money in the salvage operation and Bria has tracked Cutter down half way across the globe to demand a refund. Marrezo, the tiny kingdom where she was born desperately needs the money to repay a debt owed by Draven (who is the King) or the country will default and Italy will take control. Cutter salvage has a no refund policy and Nick therefore flatly declines the Princess' demand. Nick and Bria do not get off on a good foot.

"Riptide",is a fast paced,high-octane,action packed story of love,romance,a bit of sensuality,passion,secrets,high-sea treasure hunting,danger,courage and strength from a princess and her scavenger hunting hero. A must read for anyone who enjoys a thrill ride,with twists and turns that will leave you in awe. "Riptide" will appear to any suspense,romance,action,mystery,adventure,high-sea treasure hunting and thriller. Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at St. Martin's Press, and My Book Addiction Reviews.

Second in the Cutter Cay trilogy, RIPTIDE tells the story of sunken treasure hunter Nick Cutter and the beautiful Princess Gabriella Visconti. Dark dangers lurk above and below the water in yet another heartwarming, pulse-pounding romantic suspense from Cherry Adair.

When Princess Gabriella Visconti marches onto Nick Cutter's state of the art salvage ship demanding return of the money her reckless brother, the king, invested in Nick's current dive, she refuses to leave without it. When her helicopter taxi leaves the ship without her, she is at Nick's mercy. Despite being a princess, Bria did not grow up as royalty. Her parents were killed in a takeover when she was very small and she was whisked away to safety by her bodyguard who became a father figure to her. Now the tables have turned, her bodyguard is gone, and when her little kingdom faces immediate financial ruin because of her brother's investment, she takes it upon herself to see their people taken care of. Nick's explanation that the money has been invested in the dive and cannot be refunded until after the dive, at a significant gain, leaves Bria with no alternative but to leave. When she is brutally attacked on his ship on her last night there, he refuses to let her leave without him and personally takes her to her homeland where threats against her only escalate.

Nick Cutter has no place in his life for princesses, real or not. That is, until Gabriella Visconti strutted her gorgeousness onto his ship. She exudes feminine sexuality without effort and try as Nick may, he can't fight an incredibly intense attraction. Bria is strong and self-assured on the outside, but it doesn't take long before Nick realizes a tender vulnerability about her that he is determined to protect.
