2,5 Stars

Set in late Victorian London (1888), this is a fast paced adventure-driven Romance.

Sabine Tobias is an Atlantean, descendant of the ancient and legendary lost civilization, and she desperately needs to retrieve an old map that will help her fulfil a prophecy representing the last chance to save her people from definitive destruction. Said map is in possession of dashing and handsome Maxwell Barrett, who fortuitously found it in a sea-cave when he was still a teen.

This was a great book. It had everything: suspense, romance, adventure, just to name a few.

The story was so good. I loved the search for Atlantis. It made the story so exciting. I also really liked Sabine, she was a great heroine. While I didn't really have an emotional connection to any one character they were all easy to relate to. Max was so cool and collected most of the time, I was so infuriated with him at times because of this. But I guess you can't make a life of searching for mystical

Robyn DeHart has captured a new fan. It was by chance that I came to read her books as I was choosen as a winner of a book for Desire Me, I had to pick up the first book Seduce Me, which I read while on vacation. The Legend Hunters Series (treasure hunters, men of wealth and title, seekers of myths and legends) is a brillant idea, I throughly enjoyed the strong Heros and equally strong Heroines with their particular search of mythical and legendary treasures and the trouble that the searches bri ...more
This book didn't really hit it off with me. I bought it cause of the good reviews and I've pretty much learned my lesson with that. I didn't feel any real development between the heroine, Sabine, and the hero, Max. Their relationship was mostly based on superficial aspects, such as beauty and sexual attraction.

Throughout the book, they just basically went on a treasure hunt for clues to find a weapon in order to kill the enemy. The plot was unique but it didn't pull me in. I had to force myself
Second in a series of quick and highly enjoyable books.
Maxwell Barrett is a member of the treasure hunting society, Solomon's. He earned his membership by finding a map of the lost island of Atlantis. But now Sabine Tobias, a descendant of Atlantis, needs the map so that she can read the prophecy contained there. They get caught up working against another descendant of Atlantis who is determined to take down England and to do that, he needs to kill several high placed generals as well as the thr

Loved this book. 2nd in the series and my favorite to date. Great characters and a hunt for clues that keep the plot moving. Robyn could have over plotted this book related to the hunt for Atlantis, but kept the plot focused. Introduces the hero to her 3rd book in the series, which I can't wait to read. I have it at home, but I'm traveling so I can't immediately start it. This book is stand-alone, even though it's a 2nd in a series.

This is the second book in Robyn DeHart's Legend Hunters series. Attractive characters endure hot sex, murder, mayhem against the search for proof that Atlantis really exists. The search for clues and answers on a quest for the dove made this a more interesting read than the typical romance books. Light read, good for a trip or a day at the beach.

This is fairly standard romance fare. I like that stuff, especially when there's a fresh twist. Part of a series whose common thread is people who search for legends (in this case, Atlantis), the details around the romance plot were fun and new. It's perfect beach reading, and I'll be sure to pick up the others in the series.
This was a fun read...a little like Mr. Darcy meets Indiana Jones. About halfway through it slows down a tad, but soon picks back up with their next adventure. The plot and the characters were good...I just wish there were a few more riddles and puzzles for them to solve. Overall it was pretty entertaining.

I thought the romance in this was really meh. Not very convincing. Same goes for the adventure plot. Normally I would appreciate a crazy adventure but this was a little too crazy and mostly seemed like reproduced filler. Sad, because the premise was so interesting.

Robyn DeHart's latest installment in The Legend Hunters series fully lives up to the great start the first book, Seduce Me brought. Full of passion, intrigue, and a good deal of suspense, DESIRE ME, is a great pick for anyone looking for a great romance.

This book begins in 1873 with our hero, Maxwell Barrett in his teenage years. Determined to prove himself and his theories, he sets out to find the fabled map of Atlantis. If he can prove the existence of this mysterious city, he will be able to

In Desire Me, Robyn DeHart takes us along another adventure with the Men of Solomon. In her previous novel, we chased after Pandora's Box and its cursed bracelets. This time around, we are after the secrets of the lost City of Atlantis.

Believing Kate to be a harlot at first, Ronan is surprised when she tries to escape. He believes her innocent act might be the ruse of a clever spy. Rohan is actually a top assassin with the Order of St. Michael the Archangel, a secret government agency
I won this several years ago in a GoodReads giveaway and I FINALLY got around to reading it. I wanted to crack this book open right away when I received it in the mail because of the pretty cover and newness of the genre to me (at the time), but more than that I wanted to avoid reading a series out of order, heaven forbid. So I had to find and read the first book first, and that took me forever to do. Turns out I didn't really need to read the first book first. These books can definitely be read ...more

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.
