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?

Beth Tremayne is an heiress in the Isles of Scilly. around 1900 who is interested in the pirate tales told by her grandparents told her along with other local lore. She has enjoyed trying to track down pirate treasure and follow clues from records and stories. Lord Sheridan. is a recent houseguest who is also fascinated with the tales Beth is researching and has the funds to get more exploration done. Meanwhile, some less scrupulous aristocracy is trying to steal information from them and beat them to their dig sites. As they work out this mystery with family and friends, they find an affinity for each other -- they are perfectly suited to each others' life styles and enjoy the same things. This is a very entertaining story because Lord Sheridan has a marvelous sense of humor and also is a bit of an introvert that blurts out what he is thinking. Totally enjoyable read!
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
Another riveting tale from Roseanna M. White! To Treasure an Heiress is wonderfully romantic, inspirational, and humorous. I just couldn’t put this one down.
I was greatly intrigued by Sheridan in the first book in this series (The Nature of a Lady), and it took me about two pages to fall in love with him in this story. His character is written so well, and his romance with Beth is adorably funny and swoony. I love that I can always count on getting to know wonderful characters when I open one of White’s books. It will be a tough wait for book three (I’m sensing I’ll also fall in love with Bram), but it will definitely be worth it.
If you haven’t read one of White’s books yet, do yourself a favor and pick one up now. Her books are amazing and will stay in your mind long after you read the last page. I know I can’t wait for more! 4.5/5 stars
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
TO TREASURE AN HEIRESS is the second novel in the Secrets of the Isles series by ROSEANNA M WHITE and what a delightful read it is! Full of romance, intrigue, humour, and treasure hunting, with some wonderful, and some not so wonderful, characters, and a strong Christian message - what more could you possibly need? Although it is not necessary to read the first book in the series as this novel can easily stand alone, I suggest you do so for pure pleasure.
The story takes place in the Scilly Isles in 1906 with Beth Tremayne following her extensive clues to try and find the pirate, John Mucknell’s, treasure, which is tied to a sad love story of 1650 with prince Rupert leaving his beloved wife, Briallen, to go to sea in an effort to restore his uncle to the British throne. Beth feels possessive of “her” secret search, but ends up sharing it with her family and the insufferable Lord Sheridan.
Her friend Emily’s villainous family, in particular her spoilt and wicked brother Nigel Scofield, are equally determined to find the treasure. They bring betrayal and danger into the mix, as opposed to the strong family values and ties of friendship in the Tremayne camp. What I particularly like is the way the servsnts are treated as friends and equals on the island, and I love to see Sheridan’s relationship with his valet, Ainsley, as well as the marquess’s lovely sense of humour. I love Mamm-wynn and Mrs Dawe’s godly and gentle guidance in Beth and Senara’s dilemmas.
The author has captured the wild beauty of the islands as a backdrop to this exciting and inspirational story.
I cannot recommend To Treasure an Heiress highly enough.
I was given a free copy of the book by NetGalley from Bethany House Publishers. The opinions in this review are completely my own.
Oh my gosh, LOVED this story! I don't even know where to begin. Absolutely, delightful writing! I fell in love with Sheridan. I loved his sweet, charming, and funny ways. He and Beth are a match in every way. And he was lovely with her grandma too. It was completely enjoyable watching their relationship unfold (she hated him at the start) in this fantastic page-turning story by Roseanna M. White. Adventures, danger, treasure hunts, humor, family, and love make this a book I just couldn't put down!
I cannot tell you how many bookmarks I have marked in this story! Such great conversations and quotes. I highlighted so many.
Except for the "odious" bad guys, the entire cast of characters is delightful, they are authentic, charming and relatable. I loved the gentle faith arc throughout the story. I can't remember when I enjoyed a book so thoroughly.
Fans of historical fiction will LOVE 'To Treasure an Heiress' by author Roseanna M. White. I think it may be my favorite of hers yet!
Thank you to the author, publisher, and net galley for allowing me to read an early copy. All opinions are my own. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!
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’sThe 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.
