    What a fun adventure filled story this was! I enjoyed it immensely and the twists in the plot with the scavenger hunt made it rather addictive. If you love the tv series Amazing Race, this is a romance novel for you. The set up is intriguing, and the glee I had when I figured out the clues before the characters, I didn't know it possible to be in a competition with the characters, but I was right there, going 'duh' when I got it before them, and grinning when I completely missed it... Ainslee and Griff are both charming, the banter between them made me smile, and the chemistry they had was amazing. They were truly a team and begun fast friends until they were more. I liked the tempo of the development of the relationship. Even though it was intense and everything was happening fast, they still didn't rush into it but got to know each other first. Not only was the competition bring up the tension, the mysterious attacks towards them, that got increasingly bolder, brought danger and threat into the picture as well. But despite the menace and competition, even the drama and trouble, the story had an ever delightful, joyful, even hopeful tone to it. I scenery the author painted with her words to the tale was breathtaking, the romance filled with passion and tenderness, and as the miles left behind increased, the feelings got deeper, the venture more dangerous, and the tension higher. Truly a lively, entertaining tale, filled with adventure, endeavor, and aspiration ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

    Conemporary Romance - Treasure Hunt

    What fun! A treasure hunt with riddles, competition, travel, a bit of history and education, intrigue, suspense…and of course…love…what more could I ask for? Griff Wilde is an underwater treasure hunter so when he receives a letter that gives him something interesting to do while on hiatus from his job he snatches it up and heads off to win big. Early on he runs into Ainslee Fontaine and they quickly agree to work together during the search for Nazi treasure. Ainslee has just resigned from her job teaching in New York and is rather burned out so when she receives her letter about the contest she is ready for an adventure. They hit it off immediately, have great rapport, enjoy the same things, are strong individuals with goals in mind and thoroughly enjoy being together while they decipher the riddles and retrieve clues and spend time traveling together. On this hunt there are three other competitors all hoping to find whatever loot has been buried. The race is on and for some reason the story reminded me of the movie It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World but I am not sure why since it has been so long since I have seen the movie. Anyway, on the convoluted trail to the treasure Griff and Ainslee spend time camping, visiting historical sites, having fun, sharing, meeting one another’s families and steaming up the tent. They have their ups and downs, are threatened and eventually have to break up and move on with their lives alone or find a way to be together. This was a delight to read. I loved the dialogue and rapport between Griff and Ainslee. Their families were treasures and explained how both ended up so sane and wonderful. I enjoyed the trip with them from beginning to end and wish them both much happiness in the future. I guess they became real to me and that is a wonderful thing. I also am eager to see what will happen in book two of this series! AND there were a few characters that showed up that would make great subjects for books that might not fit into this series. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    Wilde One

    What a tale! Gallant weaves adventure with history and some danger to create a fast paced novel that really makes you think. the manner in which the budding romance between the characters is heightened by the life altering adventure that they find themselves on was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the vivid way that she brings the entire world to life in such a big way. I experienced the story alongside the characters and had a blast doing so. The characters that Gallant has created were the perfect match for both one another and the adventure that they find themselves racing towards. Griff's personality had me hooked from the get-go. The way that he and Ainslee come together was a blast. The many different secondary characters not only rounded out the story nicely, they also gave me sneak peeks into what makes the main characters tick. As a whole, this was a thought provoking and intensely enjoyable novel. It was the perfect start to the series and a fantastic introduction into Gallant's writing. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    LOVED!!!

    Loved this book! Fast paced romantic suspense done well. Griff and Ainslee, along with three others, each receive a strange letter from a dead man inviting them to participate in a scavenger hunt. The reward is unknown, but each of them is intrigued. After quitting her NYC teaching job, Ainslee is headed out of the city, but without a clear destination. Griff is recently back on land after completing a salvage project - he literally makes a living searching for lost treasure. After they each receive the strange letter, they meet each other and quickly realize they're on the same quest. What follows is an engaging novel that kept me turning pages as quickly as possible. While the premise of a scavenger hunt isn't a new one, the author makes it feel fresh and with many twits and turns. Fans of the genre will love this book. I have added the author to my must read authors' list.
