Review & Giveaway: Desire Me by Robyn DeHart

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!
Desire Me
By Robyn DeHart
Book Two: The Legend Hunters
Here's what the back of the book says:


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.


A little about the Author:
Robyn DeHart has published four books with Avon: Courting Claudia, A Study in Scandal, Deliciously Wicked, and Tempted At Every Turn. Known for her unique plotlines and authentic characters, Robyn is a favorite among readers and reviewers. Publishers' Weekly claims her writing to be "comical and sexy" while the Chicago Tribune dubs her "wonderfully entertaining." A two-time Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice award nominee, Robyn has earned 4 star and 4 ¿ star top pick reviews on all her books and Kathe Robin says, "Like Amanda Quick, DeHart [will] keep you up all night.


Here's What I have to Say:
In the first book of the series - Seduce Me - the Legend Hunters are searching for Pandora's Box. In this installment the Legend Hunters have discovered a map to Atlantis. Max sets out on his single-minded mission, but is quickly derailed by the ultra sexy Sabine. She wants to deny her feeling but just can't as they are forced to work together to evade the third party intent on taking the map. The story in intriguing and steamy, but a little slow for my liking. The main characters are well developed but the supporting characters are left a little too mysterious.The third book in this series - Treasure Me - is due out in March of 2011

  1. I do believe there could have been a city, that due to earthquakes, volcanoes, etc, could have been lost. I don't think that they were as mysterious as we make them out to be.

  25. Not really a city in the sense that folklore has pictured it, but it seems pretty certain that there was a civilization of some sort in the Mediterranean that was destroyed by a massive volcanic explosion, leaving the caldera and a ring of small islands around it.
