Miss Margery Derrington and her dear aunts are in dire straits. Their discovery of a rare medieval manuscript will hopefully stave off their creditors—if it’s worth what they hope. Margery reluctantly allies with a reclusive scholar to use the book to pursue a treasure that could exceed her expectations. Amidst danger, secrets, and an insatiable attraction, is Margery gambling just her financial future . . . or her heart?

Academic Rhys Bowen can’t believe he has his hands on the elusive de Valery text. Solving its hidden code and unearthing its legendary treasure would establish him as one of Britain’s leading antiquarians, finally casting him out of his brilliant late father’s shadow. But when a centuries-old organization convinces Rhys of the perils of disturbing the past, he must choose between his conscience…and the captivating woman he’s sworn to help.

 The de VALERY CODE by Darcy Burke is an exciting Regency Historical romance. #1 in the “Regency Treasure Hunters”. Nice start to a new series.
Filled with a secret society, secrets,treasure, treasure Hunters, passion and romance with a bit of danger, mystery and suspense blended in, makes “The de Valery Code’ an exciting story.
Well developed characters, albeit a bit frustrating at times, you gotta love them all the seem. The storyline is interesting and intriguing. A “Indiana Jones” type story, set amidst the Regency era.
