"I had my own trail to blaze."

Its time Memphis follows his dream now that the family legacy has been fulfilled.

Memphis and Tynan are sweet men that have slight trust issues in the beginning. I have to say though I didn’t really feel the connection at first between the two. There was definitely insta-lust, but I even felt a little off with that. I think there wasn’t enough build-up for me for the connection to seem genuine, but only at first. Once the story got to the thick of thing

With Finding Alexander behind them, the Vanderbilt boys had one more adventure under their sleeves. Now it was Memphis's dream come true to hunt Blackbeard. With the dream came reality. Needing boat owner Tynan's help should have been a slam dunk, but the man had a bad relationship that coloured his future. Could these two overcome it all and solve the mystery?

Too much like the first

Although it's still a good read.

It seemed as if almost the same relationship as the guys in Finding Alexander. Even if they're twins, it was still a little too close.

Numerous spelling errors and missing words, too. Plus, sometimes it was hard to tell who was talking during dialogue.

This was such a great book. I loved Cairo in the first book, but I definitely think Memphis is my favorite twin. He was so sweet and down to earth. Tynan had been burned before, but I was glad that he was able to put his past a little behind him so that he could trust Memphis and his team. Looking for Blackbeard’s treasure was cool. Loved the book and the growing relationship between Tynan and Memphis. Hope we can find a love for Magnus now. ❤

I am really enjoying the Lost Treasures series. Right alongside some great characters and relationships, we get to be there are historical searches are underway for lost treasures. Book two focuses on Memphis and his search for Blackbeard's treasure. In order to help him and the family, he takes on Tynan and his boat to help them locate and get to the the coves that are out of reach by foot.
There's an instant connection between the two men upon meeting, though for me things moved a little

Set some time after Finding Alexander, Hunting Blackbeard sees Memphis (twin brother to FA's main character, Cairo) is lost, rudderless. Whilst his brother is off travelling the world with his man, Dillinger, Memphis realises he needs to find his own passion again & he looks back to the childhood mission of finding Blackbeard's treasure which was cruelly quashed by his father.

Tynan had a similar back story in that his father refused to let him follow his dream, however he was turned out whe

Wow! True chemistry, adventure, and humor! Fantastic!

I loved Hunting Blackbeard and everything about it! I found this even surpassed book 1 and Memphis and Tynan’s chemistry is some of the most organic, and believable (lust at first sight to feelings to a relationship) I’ve read! From their first meeting, I could literally feel the heat. I was surprised by this because I have read A LOT of books and many of Pandor

I am so glad we got Memphis' story, now we need Magnus :) Anyway, this book starts with Memphis not knowing what he wants to do with himself after the finding of Alexander w/his twin, Dillinger and Magnus. He thinks back to when he was a child and what he wanted to do is find Blackbeard's treasure and tried to talk his father into doing that but he shoots Memphis down. Now, he figures why not, he can look for it. Tynan also had a POS father who only cared about Tynan joining his agency after he ...more

The second installment in the Lost Treasures series, is so much fun. As this story builds on the first book, Finding Alexander, you should read it first. This book focuses on Memphis, Cairo’s twin brother. As a child Memphis was always fascinated with Blackbeard. As the original expedition group from Finding Alexander gathers in North Carolina, he meets a kindred spirit in boat operator Tynan. The heat between Memphis and Tynan is off the charts from the start, but as only Pandora can do, the pa ...more

Delightful adventure with secrets, treasure and a fun historical romp.  I really enjoyed these characters.  Both MC's have scars on their hearts yet are such good men. The writing flowed and the characters were well written.  I really loved how the research into the treasure hunt was made fun and really brought a part of history to life.  I really enjoyed the depth that Tyran's mentor Dex brought to the story, he is such a great character.

Loved it, great story and characters!

I was already a fan of this author (check out her other series if you haven’t!), but hadn’t tried this newest series yet. I realized book 2 was coming out and I hadn’t read book 1, which I immediately rectified and loved it. I loved this as well.

The concept is great-find a treasure, find yourself along the way, and hopefully find an HEA too. Well done and very appealing. I love the romance and the characters but also like the plot and premise. It

Hunting Blackbeard is a great follow up to Finding Alexander in the Lost Treasures series. The focus is on Memphis this time as he finally gets to go on the quest he has longed for since childhood - Blackbeard! As with the first in the series, I was hooked on the adventure, action and a very sweet romance. Although I was a little surprised at how fast things moved between Memphis and Tynan, the characters were well-fleshed out and I was able to feel the instant connection between them.

Hunting Blackbird is a wonderful combination of romance, action, and adventure (and of course Pirate Treasure)!
In this book we see Memphis, Cairo's brother (from Finding Alexander) deciding to go looking for Blackbeard's treasure, despite his father previously destroying his dreams of finding it. Tynan was kicked out when he came out as gay, and ended up heading to the one place he could think of that he had happy memories of. When he meets Memphis - instant attraction!!

To The Victors Go The Pizza Rolls! Ok, so that title is an in-joke from the prologue of this book. But it is also indicative of the fun of this book. More on the romance side than the adventure side (vs the first book in this series being a bit more equal between the two/ maybe slightly more on the adventure side), this book keeps the romance as the central piece while the adventure is more there to drive the romance plot along than anything. Some very interesting commentary about reviews includ ...more

Hunting Blackbeard is the second book in a great new series written by Pandora Pine. This book focuses on Memphis, who always wanted to find Blackbeard’s treasure. I can’t tell you if he finds that specific treasure but he does find Tynan. Tynan and Memphis are kindred spirits; he too has been hunting Blackbeard since his childhood.

I felt that Tynan and Memphis had a little bit of insta-love and the relationship didn’t have the same build-up, as I am used to from this author. However

Memphis & Tynan

I really enjoyed the continuation of the Lost Treasures series with Memphis searching out his own legacy. It had always been Memphis’s dream as a child to find the missing treasure of the great Blackbeard. With his brother’s legacy fulfilled, Memphis was ready to fulfill his own! The intrigue and mystery of long lost treasure wouldn’t be complete without finding love along the way. I loved the chemistry between Memphis and Tynan. Their developing relationship kept me on th

Memphis has helped his brother to achieve the Vanderbilt Legacy and has been a little lost after everything. Until he remembers his obsession with Blackbeard and starts looking. As he finds clues that lead him to believe he knows where the buried treasure is (love that!), his family joins him in looking and that's where he meets Tynan.

Tynan has turned his back on the life that his father wanted for him and forged a life for himself that he loves. When Memphis comes to him for help in

I was so looking forward to this book, it’s a wonderful mix of history and fiction, blended together till the reader isn’t sure which bit is which. I could really believe that Blackbeard would bury his treasure on the US coast.
This time round we have Memphis, so supportive of his brother in the last book, taking the lead in this. He meets Tynan a man with a history. They quickly realise they have that something special. I loved that the whole gang is involved again, and hope this continues for

This is a great addition to the Lost Treasures series and I love the characters. The storyline is amazing and I love the setting as well as the surprising twists that keep you guessing until the end. Memphis and Tynan have an instant connection and sizzling hot chemistry even though they both are cautious because of their pasts. They have a lot to deal with as they search for treasure with the help of family and friends especially when Tynan's evil ex-boyfriend sticks his nose in their business. ...more

The second book in this series is just as great as the first one. Memphis wanted to find Blackbeard’s treasure since he was a little boy. After he finds Blackbeard’s diary, he sets out along with Tynan, Cairo, Dillinger, and Mangus to hunt for the treasure. Tynan is hired by Magnus to the location where they think the treasure may be. The attraction between the Tynan and Mangus is seen throughout the book. It’s filled with romance, action, and the characters are sweet. Looking forward to the nex ...more

A great treasure hunting story with engaging characters.

This was a great second addition to the Lost Treasures series. Following Memphis (twin brother to Cairo from Finding Alexander) and Tynan, the storyline really drew me in and the instant connection between Memphis and Tynan was tempered by their trust issues. I really enjoyed following along with them on their adventure as they get the chance to follow their dreams. I'm ready for the next adventure.

This book had a lot to live up to, considering how much I loved the first in the series, and Pandora Pine did NOT disappoint! Memphis and Tynan are a great match and they are drawn together instantly, though their relationship doesn’t come easy - it is one they have to fight for, through trust issues, family legacies, lost treasure, and a good dose of action. I really enjoyed that this hunt focused on Blackbeard; it was a fun and fascinating historical component that I think was done really well ...more

The anticipated follow up to Finding Alexander is finally here. Memphis stars in the second book of the series but played a pivotal role in the first book as Cairo’s twin brother and right hand man. We meet Tynan in this book; he is a kindred spirit and has the same enjoyment of pirates in general and particularly Blackbeard. There is action, adventure and romance. Throw in Cairo, Dillinger and Magnus from book one and newly introduced side character Dex and you have an outstanding cast to suppo ...more

Love this series. Memphis looking for Blackbeard's treasure is a worthy second book in the Lost Treasures series by Pandora Pine. I love how well-developed and real these characters are. She has a style of writing that mixes humour, adventure and romance in equal parts. Highly recommended for all lovers of Contemporary MM romance with some action-adventure thrown in for good measure.

Memphis and Tynan’s chemistry and connection jumps off the page. There were enough twists, turns & dangers to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Love this addition to the series and so happy to get Memphis’ story. Memphis and Tynan are off to find Blackbeard big May just discover that that’s not the true treasure. I love their banter and seeing them give in to their undeniable attraction. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Sick of the slogging rat-race of her 9-5 job, Pandora Pine put pen to paper (literally!) to make her ambition of becoming a romance novelist a reality. She cut her teeth in the dog-eat-dog world of fanfiction, still dreaming of the day when she would be a published author. She lives in Massachusetts with her blabbermouth muse who’ s a fan of middle of the night plot twists.
