Blog Tour 'Treasured Secrets' by Kendall Talbot

Today I’m excited to participate in the blog tour of ‘Treasured Secrets’ by Kendall Talbot. ‘Treasured Secrets’ is an adult action adventure with romance elements. For more tour stops please visit the tour page.

About the Book:
From Romantic Book of the Year winner Kendall Talbot comes an adrenaline-fuelled new series introducing sassy sexy characters, exotic locations, and action-packed adventure.

Some secrets should remain hidden forever…

The last place Rosalina expected the clue to a 700-year-old mystery to lead her was back into the arms of Archer, the man who broke her heart. When neither can solve the puzzle without the  other, they set off on a new adventure. They’re forced to ignore the sparks that still fly unhindered between them as their search for the golden riches weaves from Tuscany’s underbelly to Archer’s luxurious yacht in the Greek Islands.

Archer desperately wants to salvage his shattered relationship with Rosalina but fighting for her love soon takes a back seat to fighting for their lives. Ruthless competition is hot on their heels and will do anything to get his hands on the treasure. With evil close on their trail, and Archer wrestling with the remnants of a childhood tragedy, Rosalina begins to wonder if some secrets were never meant to be revealed.

My Review:


When I first saw the sign up for ‘Treasured Secrets’ I immediately knew I really wanted to read this book. The cover looked so beautiful and the book description made this book sound like a must read. So when I heard that I would be a part of the blog tour I was super excited.

In ‘Treasured Secrets’ we meet Rosalina and Archer. Rosalina and Archer have been together for almost three years, and although they are very happy with each other there have always been secrets between them. Secrets about Archer’s  nightmares and his past. After Archer had yet another nightmare, Rosalina was determined to find out more. Unfortunately Archer had decided that Rosalina was better off without him.
Months later, when Rosalina is back in Italy she finds something in a Church that reminds her of Archer. Soon Rosalina and Archer are on a treasure hunt, and find themselves in danger from other treasure hunters. Life has a lot of surprises ready for them.  

From the moment I started reading this book I was intrigued by the characters. Rosalina is such a passionate and kind person. I loved how all she really wanted was to help Archer, and make him see that love really is worth it.
Archer was also very easy to like. He was just so completely sure that he was incapable of loving another person, that he tried to shut everyone out that came close to him.

But the thing I loved most about this book was the way it took place in Australia, Italy and the Greek Islands, and the treasure hunting. It was so fun to read about the characters finding clues about where the treasure could possibly be. I loved how Kendall Talbot combined the romance story with the treasure hunting.
The one down part about this book for me, was the way the time went by really fast at times. One moment I was reading about Rosalina and Archer being a couple, the next they were broken up and Rosalina was back in Italy. It just felt a little sudden. It didn’t bother me so much that I didn’t like the book, I just found myself being surprised at times about how fast the time went by.

Overall I would really recommend this book to other romance novel lovers. It’s a perfect romantic read combined with mystery and action and an exciting treasure hunt. It was really a fun perfect weekend read.
