So, how does one go about writing a review for a fabulous book without spoilers? I’m not certain that I can but I’ll give it my best shot.
To Treasure an Heiress is Roseanna M. White’s second installment of her The Secrets of the Isles series. The story takes up pretty much where The Nature of a Lady left off as Beth Tremayne and her friends and relatives continue their search for the legendary pirate’s treasure that has been the subject of island legend for many generations. Familiar characters are abundant and new ones add even more interest to the tale.
This may be the most humorous novel that I’ve read by this author, especially the endearing hero Lord Sheridan who has a bad habit of speaking aloud what he is thinking. He and Beth are at odds for a good many chapters, mostly because she holds it against him that he is in possession of her own treasured trinket box. But how can she resist such a charming man who obviously seems to have fallen head over heels for her (and I mean that almost literally). Needless to say, readers should be most pleased at the resolution of their differences even as they discover another budding romance or two to root for.
As always, White has written a beautifully entertaining novel that is laced with adventure, mystery, romance, and a believable journey to faith that takes place in a gorgeous setting. What more could one ask? Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of To Treasure an Heiress as well as The Nature of a Lady. Either can be enjoyed on its own but read in the proper sequence they will be even better.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the author and Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Secrets of the Isles, 2
Releases January 4, 2022
Beth Tremayne has always been drawn to adventure. During her childhood, she fed that desire by exploring every inch of the Isles of Scilly. As an adolescent, she dreamed of love in London’s ballrooms. Now, stumbling across an old map on her family’s property, she’s found more adventure than she ever dreamed in the hunt for pirate treasure. Unfortunately, Beth can’t escape the attentions of her family’s guest, Lord Sheridan.
Sheridan has spent years pursuing whatever archaeological interest caught his imagination. And when he discovers that Beth’s search connects with one of his favorite pirates of history, he can’t help getting involved. Plus, he finds her irresistible, even though she insists he stole a prized possession of hers.
As they work together following different clues and drawing closer to danger, they start to piece together a story of tragic love and piratical adventure. But the true surprise is the treasure they discover in one another.
