Beth Tremayne has always been drawn to adventure. During her childhood, she fed that desire by exploring every inch of the Isles of Scilly. Now, after stumbling across an old collection of letters and a map buried on her family’s property, she’s found more adventure than she ever anticipated in the hunt for pirate treasure. But in order to discover where the clues lead, she must search alongside Lord Sheridan, a man she finds insufferable.
Sheridan has spent years pursuing whatever archaeological interests pique his imagination. And when he discovers that Beth’s search connects with one of his far-removed pirate ancestors, 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 which treasure will bring the greatest surprise–the one they find in each other or the one just out of their reach?
This was such a fun book! I loved the banter between the characters. To Treasure an Heiress is the second book in Roseanna M White’s The Secrets of the Isles series. Okay, so I loved this book! It was so funny and interesting!
Beth Tremayne has been searching for an adventure since she was a child, she dreamed of finding love in London’s ballroom. Now she dreams of finding a lost treasure. However, her dreams are interrupted by her family’s guest, Lord Sheridan. Lord Sheridan enjoys pursuing whatever archaeological interest catches his imagination. When he learns that Beth’s search for lost treasure connects to one of his favorite pirates of history, he can’t help but get involved. He also found Beth irresistible and even finds himself falling for her. As Sheridan and Beth search for treasure, they start to piece together a story of tragic love and practical adventure, but they never expected to find each other.
Sheridan was a crack up. Iloved him in this book! He was kind and funny, and I loved his little quirks. He was an Earl, but he never used his position to lord over others. He was such a sweet guy, and it was so funny to read from his perspective. I also adored his relationship with Libby’ brother, Lord Telford. Sheridan did have to learn to see those around him, and be willing to admit mistakes. He was such a real and fun character. I loved reading about his interactions with others, and it was so sweet to read about him falling for Beth.
I was a little unsure about Beth at first because of the first book, but I came to really like her. Beth was stubborn and feisty, but she also loved her family. She was always seeking adventure, but she came to find pleasure in the little things, spending time with her family and those who love her. Beth was searching for a treasure, and she didn’t know how to let others help her. However, she soon came to see the value of her friends and family. It was sweet to read about Beth falling for Sheridan. She definitely didn’t see it coming. Beth had to learn how to trust God and not let her personal feelings lead her.
Sheridan and Beth were so much fun to read about. They had great chemistry, and I loved their character development. They felt real and relatable. They were both human and they made mistakes, but they were also trying to learn from their mistakes. They had to learn what it meant to worship God and give him their best throughout everyday life. I really liked how White was able to weave in faith elements without taking away from the story. The characters’ faith felt real and yet it was not overpowering.
I also really enjoyed the side characters in this story. Sheridan’s valet was hilarious and I really enjoyed his moments, along with Telford (I hope he gets his own book). The storyline was really interesting and I could not put this book down. I was enthralled in the treasure hunt and seeing how everything would resolve itself. There are still some loose ends and I can’t wait to read the next book.
To Treasure an Heiress was a great book! I would totally recommend it! It is even better than the first book, and it has made me even more excited for the next book. To Treasure an Heiress is a clean, historical, Christian book.
