Archeology Romance

Indiana Jones was one of my first loves and romance novels featuring archeologists are my catnip. Treasure hunts, museums, adventure, sexy times in dusty pyramids…I can’t get enough!


  1. Mr. Impossible by Loretta Chase: If you love The Mummy movies then this book is for you! The hero is a reckless aristocrat and the heroine is a scholar who gets him out of a Cairo prison so he can help her rescue her brother. They travel down the Nile and explore the pyramids (and each other). LOVED this one!
  2. Cold Iron by D.L McDermott: This one is also a paranormal romance! The heroine is a gifted archeologist who discovers a Celtic tomb with a missing body. The hero is a Fae warrior with supernatural powers of seduction. I binged this whole series hard. Highly recommend.
  3. Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters: This is the first book in the Amelia Peabody series. They are mysteries set during the late 1800s/early 1900s but I am also counting them as romance (closed door) because Amelia and her husband can’t get enough of each other 😉 I adore this whole series – another one for fans of The Mummy!
  4. East of Redemption by Molly E. Lee: A contemporary second chance romance with a treasure hunter hero who needs a big score to keep his reality show on the air. The heroine is his ex and the daughter of his mentor – an archeologist who died going after King Solomon’s treasure. He needs her to document his latest adventure…in the cave that killed her father.
