Back Cover Blurb:
The Wilde brothers have one thing in common—a thirst for adventure. But Griff Wilde is about to be taken on the ride of his life . . .

When Griff Wilde receives a letter from a dead man sending him on a race to find a mysterious treasure, he’s not worried about the competition. After all, salvaging sunken treasure is what he was born to do. But the riddles leading to the clues are a little trickier than he anticipated . . .

Ainslee Fontaine is ready for a change. A cross-country scavenger hunt sounds like a piece of cake after teaching in New York City. How hard could it be? For starters, travelling alone seems to have its hidden dangers, like real-life treasure hunters who ignite her deepest passions. But there’s still a hidden prize to find—unless someone stops them by any means necessary . . .

My Review:

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.
