Desire Me by Robyn DeHart - Review & Giveaway

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 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.

What I Can Tell You: 

Oh lala...this book is so good! I loved it from the beginning. When Max as a teen risks his life to find the map of Atlantis to the very end. Max and Sabine are intoxicating. The cover is super hot and you will find yourself yearning for Max and Sabine to fall in love!

Plus the legend behind Atlantis and the mystery that surrounds this myth has always sparked imagination. What happened may never be known but I love Robyn's take on it.

Great summer read!

Five Fun Facts

1. One of the most fun aspects of writing Desire Me came from creating the scavenger hunt for Sabine and Max. It was a thrill to come up with all manners of danger to put them in.

2. The underground bath is based on a real Roman bath that was unearthed by archeologists outside of Kent in 2004. My characters just happened to find it first.

3. Desire Me is the first book I’ve written that has two villains. And they’re both deliciously evil—and one is a woman!

4. When I came up with the concept for the Legend Hunters series, the lost continent of Atlantis was the very first legend I thought of.

5. When writing the scenes with Queen Victoria, I swear I was channeling Judi Dench;
I kept hearing her voice and imagining her mannerisms. She was the perfect inspiration for my Queen.

Thanks to the folks at Hachette Book Group, I have 5 copies of Desire Me to giveaway.
