A secret order of Men of Solomon is considered a myth among Victorian society. They are treasure hunters, rich, titled and are determined to seek out the legends that are as haunting as they are captivating. One such treasure hunter is Graeme Langford, Duke of Rothmore. He is a man torn between two loyalties-Scotland and duty. He goes through the motions until he stumbles across Vanessa Pembrooke searching for the Loch Ness Monster. Graeme never anticipates that his search for the legendary Stone of Destiny would bring his destiny in his life. Sparks fly, passion explodes as danger mounts for Graeme and Vanessa. Can these two intrepid treasure seekers stay alive long enough to find the elusive stone while not losing the love that binds them?

TREASURE ME is a mix of National Treasure and Indiana Jones with a dash of myths and magic and you get this exceptional installment in the Legend Hunters series. Ms. DeHart delivers a wild and action packed ride from start to finish in her latest release in this intriguing series. From one action scene to the next, the reader is drawn into a world where myths and legends come alive amid the pages and this reader was eagerly flipping the pages to see what would happen next for Graeme and Vanessa. Ms. DeHart delivers a fast paced story full of intriguing characters, a few twists to keep the reader guessing and a Scottish legend that everyone knows about are the basis of TREASURE ME.

Meet Vanessa Pembrooke, a scholarly independent woman bent on proving the existence of the famed Loch Ness Monster. Meeting Graeme Langford was a plus in her mind as he shared her love of adventuring and was handsome to boot. What I love about Vanessa was she was no shy miss. She was bold, independent and fearless. She was a woman after my own heart when I was reading TREASURE ME. She kept Graeme on his toes and the passion between them was smoldering.

Graeme Langford was a strong, alpha male hero-one I absolutely adored from the beginning. He had his soul mate in Vanessa and though he didn’t believe in a forever love, he couldn’t help himself from falling for the beauty. I loved the scenes between him and Vanessa the most. You could feel the sizzling chemistry between the two and knew it was going to combust very, very soon. There were a few secondary characters that had me on the edge of my seat and kept the story flowing nicely.

TREASURE ME is a fun, action packed story that will leave you breathless when you flip that last page. I am eager to see what myth and legend this author basis’s the next book on. If you are looking for a fun, intriguing story then you might be interested in TREASURE ME. I know I am going to read these three books in the series again in the future when I need my hunky heroes and feisty heroines who love adventure.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
