BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Desire Me by Robyn DeHart (Book Review 2010-92)


 

Product Description

The Legend Hunters . . .

The Men of Solomon's meet in secret, their very existence only a rumor among the best of Victorian society. They are treasure hunters, men of wealth and title, seekers of myths and legends. And no legend is as mystifying as the lost city of Atlantis . . .

DESIRE ME

Years ago, Maxwell Barrett found a map to Atlantis and dedicated his life to the search for the mystical lost continent. But when an alluring woman makes a wager for the priceless artifact, he may have discovered an even greater treasure.

A descendant of Atlantis, Sabine Tobias needs the map to decipher an ancient prophecy. What she doesn't need are the sparks flying between her and Max. He's too devilishly charming to be trusted: The fate of her people is at stake as well as her heart. Yet a ruthless killer also covets the map. Now Max and Sabine must race to decode the prophecy's riddle before this criminal fulfills his deadly mission.

LOVED IT

This is a wonderful romance.  I didn't read the first book in the series, but you can bet I am going to go back and get it.  This is a unique blend of fantasy, action-adventure and historical romance. Is this a new genre?  I sure hope so!  Max is a hunk of a man and Sabine makes a good foil as well as romantic interest.  It really reminded me a lot of Romancing the Stone as far as the action went.  I think this would make a great movie.
I read a lot of paranormal and urban fantasy, so adding the historical element in is broadening my horizons.
