Good book just like the previous 2. Lot of action.
You would assume that, since this story takes place near Loch Ness, the legend the characters are chasing would be the Loch Ness Monster. But no, DeHart takes it in a slightly more interesting direction, where the 'beastie' is actually peripheral to the search for the Loch Ness treasure and the Stone of Destiny.
Legend Hunter Graeme is the large, adventurous type apparently inhabited 18th and 19th century Scotland in droves, although he's also half English and the Duke of Rothermore (A state of affairs he withholds from Vanessa until two-thirds of the way through the story - after which revelation her reaction is something like, "You're a Duke?" and he says, "Oh yes, thought I told you," and they just move on from there. But whatever.) Vanessa is an aspiring paleontologist, and comes across as sort of a Victorian era Temperance Brennan (only less obnoxious). Her scholarly take on matters of the heart is part of what makes the book so much fun to read. The book also features the return Fielding and Esme, more made-for-TV-movie type action and adventure, the reappearance of the chillingly vicious Raven, and more character deaths than you generally find in a romance novel. Overall, a quick, enjoyable read and the best of the series to date.
I really really enjoyed this book! It was the first in this series I have read and after this one I will definetly be going back to start from the beginning and reading what ever comes next. A steamy adventure filled thrilling historical romance. In my opinion it's well worth the credit or money spent.... and the cover is beautiful!... just sayin'.
