Dashing adventurer Penn Bowen is dedicated to preserving Britain’s history and his carefree, bachelor lifestyle. He’s happiest when he’s in pursuit of knowledge and the occasional liaison with the right woman. So he’s more than a little perturbed when the wrong woman inserts herself into his latest quest—proving that a valuable artifact in Oxford’s museum is a fake. Amelia Gardiner is smart and capable...and determined to prove that Penn is wrong about the treasure her grandfather found.
Amelia won’t allow Penn to denigrate her family’s legacy, and she certainly won’t join the ranks of women who throw themselves at his feet. As secretive and dangerous factions infiltrate their hunt, Amelia and Penn must work together to stay one step ahead. But passion ignites between them and suddenly their alliance is more than a simple convenience. When peril strikes too close, they’ll risk everything they hold dear: family, honor, and a chance for the greatest treasure of all—love.
Edge of your seat fun.
Adventure and romance make for and intriguing read. This third book in the Legendary Rogues Series is like Romancing the Stone and The Mummy with the central legend being the mysteries of King Arthur.
As always, Darcy Burke drew me in from the first page. I was enthralled by Pennard Bowen and Amelia Forrest. Their story is an action packed rollercoaster ride that is full of unexpected twists and turns. I will add that it is best to read the first two books in the series so you understand the dynamics of some of the other characters. It was worth the 3 year wait for this book.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated and was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
