by 
C.K. Brooke
Genre: NA Fantasy/Adventure Romance
Release Date: November 2015
48fourteen



Treasure lost... passion found?

Antonia Korelli is on the run from her coven of priestesses. She never desired a life confined to the temple, relegated to chastity and service to the goddess, Azea. Instead, she longs for true love and adventure in the Kingdom of Elat.

Robin Watkins is a fiery dreamer on a mission of his own, to uncover the legendary lost Red Pearl. Only, he must first regain his treasure map, which was stolen by his former best mate and conniving ex-girlfriend.

When Antonia becomes unwittingly entangled with Rob, she's more than dismayed to find herself stuck on his harebrained hunt. But somewhere amidst their bickering and banter, their plight for survival through desert and tropics, and the joint pursuit of impossible dreams, Antonia begins to realize that perhaps she might have found the unforgettable adventure – and romance – she was seeking.

REVIEW
 

C.K. Brooke is the queen of adventure – and The Red Pearl, as with each and every other one of her books, was filled with excitement and intrigue. Brooke has a knack for breathing life into endearing characters; kick ass female leads who are as tough and smart as they are soft and feminine, and male leads who will drive you crazy but have you falling head-over-heels all the same.

One of my favorite animated movies is Tangled, and for some reason Annie and Rob reminded me so much of Rapunzel and Flynn “Smolder” Rider. Rob was a bit of a brute but also very charming, and beneath it all he had a heart of gold. Annie had an adventurous spirit but was also innocent to the world around her. I loved every second spent on their journey, and boy, was it a suspenseful one.

Another thing I thoroughly enjoy about Brooke’s writing is her world building. She always offers fascinating, descriptive landscapes that are part reality, part fantasy; settings that capture my imagination from the very first page.

This book was heartrending at times, and at others it was a sweet romantic tale of two lost souls finally meeting and becoming one. With a strong message that sometimes the greatest treasure is the one you aren’t even searching for – you just have to trust, and open yourself to the possibility – this was a stellar read!
