About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

To Treasure an Heiress (The Secrets of the Isles, #2) by Roseanna M. White


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 craved 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 interests 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 each other.


Roseanna M. White excels in creating characters that I'd like to know, placing them in exciting adventures that I'll never have, and then, making me believe that it's all possible. I was sure, after reading The Nature of a Lady, that White couldn't possibly write another book that I would enjoy more. Wrong! I was so very wrong, because this second book in The Secrets of the Isles series is filled with mystery, danger, and adventure, and I absolutely loved it! I also adored the romance between Beth Tremayne and Lord Sheridan. She's full of spirit and wants nothing to do with him, but he finds her irresistible, and he's willing to admit it. He is funny and charming, and this unlikely pair soon realizes a special connection that is stronger and deeper than just searching for a lost pirate treasure.

To Treasure an Heiress
is wonderful historical fiction with breathtaking romance, great supporting characters, a beautiful setting, and an inspiring faith message of forgiveness and redemption. It's a delightful read and I can't wait to learn more about Emily and Bram, two intriguing characters who deserve their own story.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Roseanna M. White is a bestselling, Christy Award-nominated author who has long claimed that words are the air she breathes. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two kids, editing, designing book covers, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of a slew of historical novels that span several continents and thousands of years. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to find their way into her books…to offset her real life, which is blessedly ordinary.
