Synopsis: She's a human bloodhound with a nose for relics, torn between her sexy billionaire boss and her hot bodyguard. Each would die to save her and to win her heart.
Kendall Morgan puts her sixth sense back to work in the second book of the Relic Seekers series, divining the history and location of ancient relics. Her boss, the gorgeous billionaire Nathan Larraby, sends her to Italy to safeguard a priceless treasure belonging to the Protettori, an ancient order of monks who guard four powerful relics that Nathan believes may be the cure for his dark curse. He also sends brooding mercenary Jake Stone to watch Kendall’s back—although her back isn’t all Jake has his eye on.
Nathan joins them, and all three tumble into a labyrinth of defenses created by the monks to protect their treasures, including the Fountain of Youth. They find themselves in England on the trail of the legendary King Arthur, who along with the Reaper, seems mysteriously connected to the Protettori.
Sparks fly and bonds are tested as Kendall and Nathan’s pasts are revealed and Jake’s becomes even more of a mystery. The trio must stay one step ahead of the Reaper if they want to survive.
Fountain of Secrets twists and turns through the shadows of myth and reality as Kendall races to uncover the Protettori’s secrets and fight her growing attraction to her boss and her bodyguard.
The Relic Seekers series: Guardians of Stone (1), Fountain of Secrets (2)
Review: ‘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'.
