"DeHart's Romances are Tender and Adventurous, and Funny Enough You May Laugh Your Nethers Off"

Romance Historical

Graeme Langford, long-time member of the Solomon Club and of their elite group of Legend Hunters, has been searching for the real Stone of Destiny for almost eleven years. He is certain his canny Scottish forbearers were clever enough to hide the stone rather than let the English haul it back to London. Although meticulously fulfilling his duties as an English Lord, his heart is in the land of his mother's birth and he itches to don kilt and spend a good long time furthering his quest in the area of Loch Ness.

Vanessa Pembroke has her life in order. She has found the perfect candidate for husband, a scientist like herself. Neither of them believes in love or passion as such nonsense would only distract them from their goal of furthering scientific discovery in the new field of paleontology. The night before the wedding however, she goes in search of some light reading and discovers her fiancé in passionate and lustful congress with her younger sister. What's a budding young paleontologist to do but pack her bags and tools and set off to discredit the scoundrel's theories? She knows bones have been found in the caves of Loch Ness. Proving such physical remains are related to the legend of the Loch Ness Monster would make her career and leave her erstwhile fiancé with egg on his face.

Robyn DeHart has become one of my favorite authors. The story lines are entertaining, and she has mad skilz in settings and dialogue, but where she shines in my opinion is in creating character. In TREASURE ME (book 3 of the Legend Hunters Series) each of the characters from Old Maizie to Graeme is believably and memorably drawn, but Vanessa shines for me. Her steadfast belief in her own reality and stubborn refusal to do other than she thinks is logically best had me laughing my nethers off. The scene where she determines the best way to remain in Scotland and pursue her search is to seduce Graeme was classic. DeHart has continued her series with a book chock full of fun and adventure, not neglecting steamy, tender (and sometimes hilarious) love scenes. Read them all, you won't regret it.

SUMMARY

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 captivating as the Loch Ness monster . . .

Graeme Langford, Duke of Rothmore, has always been torn between his beloved Scottish homeland and his duty to the English Crown. Yet his is truly an adventurer's soul-and he's determined to find a long-lost stone hidden near Loch Ness.

Bookish Vanessa Pembrooke heads to the Highlands to prove the existence of the legendary beast. Instead she finds the first man who has ever shared her hunger for adventure. Soon Graeme and Vanessa are fighting a dangerous battle as well as their own simmering attraction. As their passion grows, so does the danger. Ultimately, they must risk everything to keep the cursed stone out of a murderer's hands. But can they survive without losing the greatest treasure of all-their love?
