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.
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 deciper 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.
In Desire Me, Robyn DeHart gives us another lighthearted romance with an unusual twist. In her previous novel, the Men of Solomon were searching for Pandora's Box. This time, Robyn DeHart uncovers the secrets of the Lost City of Atlantis.
The romantic lead, Maxwell Barrett, is wealthy and is only interested in proving the existence of Atlantis. He isn't interested in amassing more wealth, building a family or conquering society -- an event in his past has focused his passions.
Sabine Tobias seems to be Maxwell Barrett's polar opposite. She's dedicated to her small family and her community and has spent her entire life trying to keep the dream of Atlantis and their culture alive. Part of preserving Atlantis means that she must keep its existence a secret. Recent events point to the fulfillment of a prophecy that threatens to destroy what Sabine holds most dear.
When Sabine and Max meet, they find themselves drawn to each other just as they each try to keep true to their larger goals. A shared danger makes them temporary allies, but this merely postpones the eventual heartbreak.
Desire Me is a fun read that combines romance with myth and adventure. Though I very much enjoyed Desire Me, I think that I preferred the earlier novel Seduce Me a little more. It may be that it was my first exposure to The Men of Solomon and DeHart's world where mythical places and objects are real and found by archeologists, historians, and scientists with the imagination and skill to find them. I recommend you check them both out -- see which adventure you prefer!

About the Author, courtesy of the publisher:
A lifelong lover of stories and adventure, Robyn DeHart felt she had to either become a stuntwoman for the movies or experience adventure from the safety of her pj's and computer. She chose the latter and couldn't be happier for doing so. Known for her unique plotlines and authentic characters, Robyn is a favorite among readers and reviewers. A two-time Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice award nominee, Robyn has earned either 4-star or 41/2 star "Top Pick" reviews on all her books. A self-proclaimed movie junkie, Robyn knows more worthless entertainment trivia than anyone has a right to; in fact she's the reigning champion of name-that-voice-over-on-that-commercial game, which, incidentally, she plays alone. She lives in Central Texas with her brainy husband and two very spoiled cats. You can find her online at www.RobynDeHart.com or www.JauntyQuills.com

I couldn't put this down! DeHart is so good at the whole legend/treasure-hunter story structure. She's so great at telling a fast-paced, mysterious, romantic story that you just want to blaze through to see what's going to happen next and how it's all going to come together in the end. Now I have to go buy all the others in the series!ReplyDelete
