This is the second book in The Relic Seekers series. I loved it! Kendall Morgan is a wonderful character. However, I sometimes wanted to shake some sense into her. She works for a billionaire as a relic finder. She has a special gift that allows her to track down, as well as know things about, the artifacts she procures for her boss. When her boss, Nathan Larraby, hires her to locate four powerful relics, little does she realise the danger she will face. Not just from Nathan's reclusive nemesis known only by the name of Reaper (as in Grim), who is also after the artifacts, but from her attraction to her co-worker, Jake Stone. This is an urban fantasy romance with a twist. I started reading the story and was instantly hooked. The story is told through the view points of Kendall and Jake for the most part, but as it progressed, other characters, namely Nathan, also has his say. I found myself on a roller coaster of emotion as the story unfolded. I enjoyed getting to know the characters better and we are introduced to quite a few new ones. This story sees the trio thrown into danger as they uncover more secrets from the secretive Protettori, and unravel the secrets hidden in their own pasts. It continues from the end of book one. Jake and Kendall grow closer together and consummate their attraction, and Nathan finds out that the changes he is experiencing is linked to an event in his past. They also uncover a mysterious connection between the Protettori, King Arthur, and the fountain of youth. This sees them travelling from Italy to England in an attempt to find the lost fountain of youth, fabled to give anyone who drinks from it not an immortal life but a longer one. The mystery and suspense kept me reading until I'd finished the book. However, I was a little disappointed that the relationship between the three didn't develop as much as I thought it could have. There is definite chemistry between the three; Jake and Nathan not so much, but they both have feelings for Kendall. I could see the potential for a threesome, but the author seems to have shied away from this aspect. Perhaps they will get together in the third book? I guess I'll just have to read it and see. The book ends in a cliffhanger and I am now looking forward to reading The Lost Chalice as soon as possible. Anita Clenney has written an intriguing paranormal romance full of action and adventure. I love her fast paced writing style and the flow is wonderful. I would definitely consider reading more books by this author in the future, and there is a high probability that I would add her to my favourite authors list too. Due to the above mentioned scenes of a sexual nature (which are not explicit), as well as some violence, I do not recommend this book to young readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love paranormal/supernatural romances/romantic suspense/urban fantasy/action/adventure or myths and/or legends genres. - Lynn Worton

Action packed The second book to Anita Clenney’s Relic Seekers series starts off with a bang. This Indian Jones type book series continues to have me on the edge of my seat with its constant action, complex romance and exceptionally well-written suspense. I continually find myself reading her intriguing books in one sitting trying to solve the quest before the ending of the book. Kendall is still on the go this time looking for the second relic with her able and hot bodyguard Jake and the sexy billionaire Nathan. In this story the two handsome men start to stake a claim on her and this causes some tension between the two men. Kendall adds to the confusion because she can’t seem to decide between them either.  I love how this story takes you into other times while it takes you through finding The Fountain of Secrets. Through all the twists and turns of this story never at any time are you lost or confused. In fact it is so well written that I was able to read quickly to the exciting end. Last time I talked about which of the two guys may be her childhood friend. When you read this book you will start to form a more solid decision on which one is Adam but it is a cliffhanger for the next book. That’s okay with me I am excited to read the next book, The Lost Chalice, Book 3 of The Relic Seekers. A COPY WAS GIFTED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.

This book is at the top of my list of favorites, and that is saying a lot. I didn't realize Fountain of secrets was the second book, now I will go back , read the first. I'm sure that will help with the characters and flow of the story. I can't wait for the next book!

‘Fountain of Secrets’ is the second book in The Relic Seekers series. Kendall, Nathan, and Jake are all back and ‘Fountain of Secrets’ picks up right where ‘Guardians of Stone’ left off with the Spear of Destiny found, but there are 3 other major relics which need to be found. Kendall and Jake must discover more about the ancient order, the Protettori, and the relics over which they’ve stood guard for ages. In addition, they’ve got to keep ahead of the Reaper who wants nothing more than to amass the relics to use their power for his own. I enjoyed learning more about the secrets hidden in the pasts of Nathan, Kendall, and Jake, as well as the different mystical relics. I felt ‘Fountain of Secrets’ was cohesive and flowed very well. Action, intrigue, romance, and the supernatural are well combined and I think this series has its feet under it! After the cliffhanger ending, I can’t wait to find out what happens next after ‘Fountain of Secrets'.

The characters and mysteries of the first Relic Seekers novel rush back onto the page in Anita Clenney’s Fountain of Secrets. Nathan’s struggling to hold his “change” at bay, while old Marco seems equally determined to keep his friends in the dark. Kendall’s still searching for her past and treasured memories of Adam. Meanwhile Jake’s still the fabulously handsome rake who threatens to steal her heart, unless she gives it to Nathan first. There’s a Spear of Destiny, retrieved in Guardians of Stone, a castle with hidden treasure, and now a Fountain of Youth that just might rescue Nathan. Oh, and Raphael’s on the loose. But it all holds together with just enough explanation to set the scene as the action level rises, even if you missed reading Guardians. Rapid-fire dialog keeps the story moving forward. Jake and Nathan search hidden tunnels and dance around their seeming affections for Kendall. Meanwhile Kendall’s exploring past and present—well, and possibly exploring Jake as well. Haunted by memories of Adam, she runs away from, or sometimes toward, her shadows. And she ends up in England, which is eminently satisfying for me, if a little surprising. Globe-trotting with a difference, relic-seeking with added paranormal threat and surprise, lots of humor, plenty of action, and enticing romance, Fountain of Secrets is like a feminine version of Indian Jones, and it’s fun. Dislcosure: The author kindly gave me a free ecopy.

I really enjoyed Anita Clenney's Fountain of Secrets. Kendall has a sixth sense and uses it to find relics. This time she, Jake & Nathan are looking for the Fountain of Youth all the while trying to keep one step ahead of the villianous Reaper who is also hunting relics. Nathan is the mysterious billionaire funding the search. Jake is employed by Nathan to be Kendall's body guard and he truly does 'guard' her body in this book. I love the interaction between Jake & Kendall. Their romance grows gradually even though she has deep feelings for Nathan. The two men snipe at each other when they are together because they both are in love with Kendall and would do just about anything to keep her safe as they search for the relics. I'm not a big fan of Nathan, but I can't wait to find out what his "curse" is. Both Jake & Nathan are bossy & overbearing when it comes to Kendall's safety, but I wouldn't expect anything less from them where she is concerned. I can not wait for the next book in the series.
