Dashing adventurer Penn Bowen is dedicated to preserving Britain’s history and his carefree, bachelor lifestyle. He’s happiest when he’s in pursuit of knowledge and the occasional liaison with the right woman. So he’s more than a little perturbed when the wrong woman inserts herself into his latest quest—proving that a valuable artifact in Oxford’s museum is a fake. Amelia Gardiner is smart and capable...and determined to prove that Penn is wrong about the treasure her grandfather found.
Amelia won’t allow Penn to denigrate her family’s legacy, and she certainly won’t join the ranks of women who throw themselves at his feet. As secretive and dangerous factions infiltrate their hunt, Amelia and Penn must work together to stay one step ahead. But passion ignites between them and suddenly their alliance is more than a simple convenience. When peril strikes too close, they’ll risk everything they hold dear: family, honor, and a chance for the greatest treasure of all—love.

This is book 3 in the Legendary Rogues, I haven’t read the first two and I found you can read this book as a standalone. So if you like books which have drama, mystery, intrigue and romance, then you will love this book.
From the start I loved Penn, he loves nothing better than finding new artefacts and its while he was finding a new treasure that he comes across Amelia, well she is in disguise and is pointing a gun at him, because what he found is what Amelia wants.
Amelia is such a strong and determined lady. She also had a close relationship with her grandfather, that she cannot believe Penn when he says that the artefact in the museum is a fake, and for Amelia, she is determined to prove that Penn is wrong, and from here Penn and Amelia join forces.
The romance between Penn and Amelia was a slow build up and you get the impression it wasn’t forced. Also in the book, there were two twists, which you aren’t expecting, and for me, this kept my interest in the book.
