FROM GOODREADS: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?
MY TAKE: Fun is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about this book. It is a truly light-hearted treat full of laughs and high adventure. It moves along at a fast pace and keeps you turning the pages, ready for more.
Robyn DeHart has created an outstanding saga in her Legends Hunters series. (This book can be enjoyed immensely on its own as well as being the third book of the set.) It is full of mystery, romance, fantasy, Scotsmen :), adventure and FUN! There were several laugh out loud moments in this story. The author is a master at creating threads in a story that go opposite directions, run alongside each other, intersect and then finally tie together.
The characters immediately pull you into their world. You root for Graeme in his search for the stone and for his desire to find balance with his duty to the crown and his love of Scotland. Vanessa is quite the heroine. You feel like you're right there with her as she stoically deals with heartbreak while searching for proof of Nessie. What she ends up with is far more than she could have ever imagined.
