REVIEW: Kendall Talbot’s ‘Treasured Secrets’
The last place Rosalina expected the clue to a 700-year-old mystery to lead is back into the arms of Archer, the one man who broke her heart. But neither can solve the puzzle without the other, so together they set off on a new adventure, weaving from Tuscany’s underbelly to Archer’s luxurious yacht in the Greek Islands, trying to ignore the sparks that still fly unhindered between them.
Archer desperately wants to salvage the relationship he shattered years before, but fighting for Rosalina’s love soon takes a back seat to fighting for their lives. They aren’t the only one on the trail for the treasure, and their competition isn’t bothered by ethics and morals to achieve their goals. With evil close on their trail, and Archer wrestling with the remnants of a childhood tragedy, Rosalina begins to wonder if perhaps there are some secrets that were never meant to be revealed.
What AusRom Today thought:
From the opening scene through to the very last page, Talbot presents an edge-of-your-seat adventure driven story of love, lust, facing your past and embracing your future.
Rosalina is a strong, genuine character who is adventurous, independent and at times mischievous—all wonderful character traits that make for an entertaining read and made her instantly likeable. Archer is the perfect male equivalent and offers much strength not only to the story but to Rosalina’s character also.
I loved the depth of detail given by Talbot in describing every aspect of the story—from character descriptors through to scenery, landscape and emotions. Talbot’s ability to weave detail seamlessly into the storytelling plants you firmly inside the story and invests you into the story line effortlessly.
A must-read romance that spans Australia, Italy, and the Greek Isles and proves that love, true love, knows no boundaries.
