Lord Maxwell’s Quest by Jane Charles


I love action-adventure romances, and Lord Maxwell’s Quest exceeds expectations.  This is an exciting, heart-pounding read.  The book is the perfect blend of excitement and romance.

Lord Maxwell Trent and Miss Rosemary Fairview are both explorers and adventurers.  They race across the world hunting lost and stolen antiquities, returning them to their rightful owners.  The couple has clashed and has become competitors.  The sword of The Maid of Orleans is rumored to be in London, and Max and Rosemary must work together to retrieve the sword.  When nefarious forces attack the couple, they must learn to trust each other to survive; and throughout this harrowing journey, they might find love.

Max is dashing and the perfect gentleman.  Rosemary is feisty and independent.  These two are opposites on every level.  The couple’s energy is contagious.  Their attraction has been simmering and spreads lightning fast throughout the novel.  Max and Rosemary’s verbal sparring is entertaining and made me smile.  Through only the physicality of slight touches and stolen kisses, the couple’s bourgeoning passion is felt.  I loved Max and Rosemary as a couple; they were a pleasure to read.

The plot is fast-paced, energetic, and fun.  Look for angst and pain somewhere else.  The story captured my interest from the beginning and stole my heart by the end.  Although an action-adventure, the plot is full of sharp dialogue and suspense.  Lord Maxwell’s Quest is the second book in The “Other Maxwell’s” series.  Max and Rosemary’s journey was quick, fun, and swoon-worthy.  I was ensnared at page one, and the book was a delight to read.  This was a page-turner with a beautiful, romantic ending.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the author.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
