Fielding Grey is the second son of the Marquess of Eldon and fortune hunter by night. He’s on a mission for the Legend Hunters—a group of wealthy, titled, and heart-breakingly gorgeous men, each of whom are after the find of the century—he has his eyes set on obtaining the illustrious Pandora’s Box. But before he finds it, he encounters an equally alluring treasure—the woman bold enough to look inside.

Esme Worthington can’t resist taking the tiniest peek inside when fate drops the real Pandora’s Box in her lap. Thus, she unleashes one of Pandora’s irresistible curses: the curse of lust. Now, both Esme and Fielding must deal with this passionate curse—or blessing?—before unknown implications of Pandora’s Box overpower them both.

This is exactly what a romance should be. It was just perfect. I absolutely loved this book. It had elements of danger, suspense, and romance, with a nice historical setting and plenty of spicy scenes. I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become a sucker for historical romance, but this was one of my favorites.

Esme and Fielding, though tagged with ridiculous romance novel names, are terrific characters. I’ve read enough erotic short stories and novels at this point to start making up my mind about what I like and what I don’t like. What I love about these two is that, though they have a bit of desire for each other upon first meeting, they don’t just jump into bed with each other. They do get to know each other first and it makes their relationship more interesting. Too often, I’ve read romance novels where the characters have no depth. It’s all about sex. It’s so much more interesting to me when the characters are deeper than that. Don’t get me wrong. The sex is fun and absolutely appropriate for a romance novel, but we all want a little depth to the stories we read, right?

One of my favorite elements of the book was the treasure seeking. I had just finished Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff when I read the first chapter of this book. The fact that he was looking for the great library of Alexandria drew me into the story immediately. Though it isn’t actually about that, there was still plenty of treasure-seeking adventure to it. It made the plot so entertaining. I really loved all the myth behind Pandora’s box and the predicament the characters find themselves in. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it to romance lovers. I think I’ll read the next two!

Prude Filter: This book contains mild profanity and sexual content. I suggest 18 and up.
