My Review:

Esme Worthington only reads about adventures in her studies of antiquities, including the legendary Pandora's box, while she remains a prim and proper miss. However, that is before her study is ransacked by those searching for clues to the key to Pandora's box. Fielding Grey, a treasure hunter himself, just wants to steal the box back from the criminals, but his heart won't let him leave Esme behind. He rescues her, and takes her along on his adventure, but she becomes more than a handful when the temptation of the box becomes too great for her. She opens it and is cursed with lust...which is sure to be directed right at Fielding.

This book is definitely for romance readers who like a lot of action and adventure with their love story on the side. This isn't the type of story that I love, so it was only ok for me. It was a quick, fun read, but there just wasn't enough between the hero and heroine to really grab me.

Fielding was very focused on his work, not exactly a tender romantic. Sometimes I felt like he only tolerated Esme because he was a good person and didn't want her to be hurt, not because he loved her or anything. And Esme only seemed to feel lust for Fielding. Esme was a very intelligent heroine, I just wanted her to have more self esteem. She never believed that someone like Fielding could be attracted to her. So while the adventure was there, I felt like the romance was lacking.
