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.

Publishers Weekly

Sizzling romance mixes clumsily with ancient legends in DeHart's late-Victorian romance, the first in the Legend Hunters trilogy. Fielding Grey, viscount of Eldon and freelance archeological treasure hunter, reluctantly enters into a business alliance with the club of gentlemanly legend hunters he holds responsible for his father's death. When Fielding's mysterious uncle finds Pandora's mythical box, he kidnaps beautiful Esme Worthington, believing she holds the key. The curses imprisoned in the box escape into the world, and Esme (who is referred to as a scholar, but displays little scholarship) and Fielding fight their growing attraction as they race to prevent disaster. While DeHart (Tempted at Every Turn) makes the romance believable and enticing, the multiplication of unlikely supernatural and familial subplots distracts from it, and the layers of artificial complication added to the original myth feel forced and unconvincing.

    Placing Indiana Jones and Joan Wilder (of Romancing the Stone) in a Victorian Era thriller is what Robyn Dehart does with her latest fun Legend Hunters saga.

    In 1887 the Solomon's gentlemen society hire artifact hunter Viscount Fielding Grey to find Pandora's Box; he agrees to undergo the mission though he blames the society for the death of his father. The society fears the legendary relic falling into the wrong hands that of Fielding's nefarious uncle Raven.

    His uncle finds the ancient object and believes the key to opening it resides with scholar Esme Worthington; so he kidnaps her to force her to release the curses upon humanity. She peaks inside and soon is wearing the bracelet marked "lust" that turns the reticent spinster into a siren. Fielding rescues her, but also struggles with desire and need. Outraged with the setback from his nephew, Raven comes for them and the box as he continues his plan to destroy the world starting with his nephew and the woman who can free the curses on the Victorian world.

    Placing Indiana Jones and Joan Wilder (of Romancing the Stone) in a Victorian Era thriller is what Robyn Dehart does with her latest fun Legend Hunters saga. The fast-paced story line starts off with plenty of actions in a tomb near Alexandria and never slows down as Fielding rescues Esme, but struggles with her "carrying one of the seven deadly sins, lust; she has the same issues. As they struggle with lust and soon love they also must flee yet prevent his uncle from releasing the curses on humanity).

    Looking for adventure and romance? Snuggle down with Robyn DeHart's Seduce Me!

    Synopsis of Seduce Me:

    Seduce Me introduces Fielding Grey, Viscount of Eldon, who lives the dangerous life of a treasurer seeker in the 1880s. Unlike his father who approached archeology as a scholar, Fielding Grey has had to accept clients and pursue artifacts based on their monetary value. His latest assignment from The Men of Solomon involves the fabled Pandora's Box. It's this search that leads him to Esme Worthington, a scholar and specialist on Pandora's Box.

    Esme Worthington has always loved archeology and has built a reputation as a scholar. Esme's expertise draws danger to her and disrupts her quiet life. She's fortunate to come across Fielding Grey, an unexpected hero. As Esme and Fielding learn to work together to solve the mysteries of Pandora's Box, Esme's curiosity causes her to release one of the Box's curses.


    Review:

    Seduce Me has a fun blend of romance and adventure. Esme's the sort of intelligent, outspoken, beautiful, good hearted and slightly clumsy heroine that I always find myself rooting for. Fielding is mysterious and likable. As Fielding searches for the story behind his father's death while fighting his growing attraction to Esme, the book draws you in.

    From the light banter between Fielding and Esme to the excitement during the hunt for the solution to the curse. this book makes a wonderful escapist read. This is my first Robyn DeHart novel and I look forward to reading many more.

    is a good afternoon book

    Robyn DeHart's "Seduce Me" is a good afternoon book. If you like a little adventure and mystery with your romance,you will enjoy this book. Her characters are likeable, and the story has a constant flow that kept me turning the pages.Esme and Fielding are a perfect compliment to each other, and I hope Ms DeHart considers writing other adventures with these two characters.

    A little history, magic, and romance

    This was a fun, sexy romance. I enjoyed the bit of magic in relation to the artifacts. It was a bit like Romancing the Stone, with a bookish heroine and adventurer hero.
