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.

    Roseanna M. White has done it again! Her newest book, To Treasure an Heiress – the second installment in her “Secrets of the Isles” series – is one of those amazing stories you just can’t put down.
    Set in the Isles of Scilly in the early 1900s, this book picks up where the first book in the series, The Nature of a Lady, ended: Central character Beth is continuing an adventure-packed search for pirate treasure. Now, much to her frustration, she must work alongside Lord Sheridan – a man she initially sees as overbearing – to piece together the clues.
    White is a true master of character development, and every character I’ve encountered in the many books I’ve read by her comes across as completely authentic and relatable. I absolutely loved getting to know Lord Sheridan better in this second book, which is told in part from his viewpoint. It was thoroughly entertaining to follow the development of his relationship with Beth.
    To Treasure an Heiress is the perfect blend of adventure and romance with a strong faith component and just the right amount of humor thrown into the mix. I would highly recommend this novel, as well as all of White’s other books, to anyone who loves well-written historical fiction with a faith-based message.
    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. However, I was not required to provide a positive review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

    I truly enjoyed the banter and sparks between Beth and Sheridan. This author made it so entertaining with the way those two clashed and parried. Throw in hidden secret pirate treasure and this book was a winner for me! All the characters make up such a heart warming story because they climb into your heart and make you feel like family. They all make the story a page turner. The island descriptions are amazing and suck you into their lives. Laughter, tears and some tense suspense moments abound in this! I highly recommend this one (after you read the first in the series, of course!).

    To Treasure an Heiress has to be one of my favorite Roseanna M. White books! This story had everything: a funny, endearing hero whom I completely fell in love with, an amazing slow burn romance, a pirate prince’s treasure, an inspirational story that brought me to tears, dastardly villains, and enough suspense to keep me quickly turning the pages. It’s the brilliant sequel to The Nature of a Lady that I absolutely loved.

    I adored the romance between Beth and Sheridan. Sheridan starts out as Beth’s nemesis but he gradually wins her over with his quick wit, his self deprecating humor, and his absolute charm and lack of guile. He even reads Jane Austen! How much more perfect can you get! He definitely won me over instantly. I chuckled at his adorable inner monologues. Beth was a favorite too and the two together were both hilarious and enchanting.

    The other characters were just as delightful. I loved seeing Elizabeth and Oliver from the first book as well as the endearing Mamm-wynn. We’re also introduced to some new characters, Senara daughter to the Dawes who unexpectedly returns home after losing her position, Ainsley Sheridan’s incomparable valet, and Sheridan’s sisters who were not only charming, but funny too.

    Along with the treasure seeking and romance are several inspirational themes expertly woven into the story. The first is the importance of family demonstrated in numerous ways with all the various sibling pairs in the story, Scilly families, and Mamm-wynn’s loving relationship with everyone. The second is the worth of a soul as precious as a pearl. Without spoiling anything, I loved the message of true repentance and how important it is to forgive ourselves.

    Definitely one book you don’t want to miss! It can be read as a stand alone but is more enjoyable if you’ve read the first book. Highly recommend this second book in the series and can’t wait to read Emily and Bram’s story!

    Your review * This was one of my most anticipated books of 2022 and it lived up to what I had imagined it to be.
    The eloquent writing style of this author has me hooked on it. Her books are sumptuous, I love the descriptions and can vividly imagine myself there .
    It was a delight to be reunited with characters in the previous book in the series and see the progression they made and also meet new characters that I hope to meet up with again in a future book.
    The characters are relatable and I enjoyed reading the faith thread throughout the book.
    I can’t wait to see what’s next from this author!

    Searching for a new and exciting couple? Meet Beth and Sheridan. (Except one of them does not have the same conviction that the other one is a perfect match.) The adventures are exciting, daring, and well written, but these two will keep the pages turning. Fall in love with them, even if they don’t fall in love with each other!

    There are a few pertinent events from The Nature of a Lady, book 1, that are key to understanding the magnitude of several parts of To Treasure an Heiress, but the character chatter and inspiration is easy enough to grasp. Instead of being a continuation of Oliver and Libby’s story, these pages open with Beth, the missing Elizabeth from book 1, as she still struggles without adequate tangible proof of a pirate prince’s treasure. The archeological world becomes a lot smaller over the period of a month and Beth has to decide who to trust with her heart and her knowledge.

    Overall, a fabulous read and I highly suggest To Treasure an Heiress! I received a copy of this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review. The gush and excitement over this story is well deserved!

    To Treasure an Heiress is another fantastic romp through the Isles of Scilly written by Roseanna M. White. In this story, we learn what happens next in Elizabeth Tremayne’s hunt for treasure left behind by 17th century pirates. Not only does she strive to find it before a ruthless rival treasure-hunter does, but she learns some life lessons along the way, and even falls in love.
    I really loved this story! As usual with Roseanna’s books, I felt there was a great blend of romance, mystery, and history. Lord Sheridan has become one of my favorite heroes; I laughed out loud multiple times as I read the parts of the story told from his point of view. He’s such a likable character, and it is wonderful when Beth finally realizes this. Their romance is sweet. I also really enjoyed the lovely descriptions of the islands; this is a great read for when you want to travel somewhere but can’t. The mystery and suspense of the treasure hunt kept me guessing. I also enjoyed the secondary storyline of Senara and Ainsley, and the lessons Senara learned. This book is definitely on my list of favorites for the year, and I can’t wait for book 3!

    Filled with daring adventure, mystery, humor and romance, To Treasure an Heiress is everything that I could have hoped for and more.

    Beth Tremayne has always been fascinated with the stories of treasure on her beloved isles, and she knows that the search for Mucknell’s treasure is far from over. But with the search for treasure has come all sorts of trouble in the form of outsiders in pursuit of the same treasure, as well as a certain Lord Sheridan.

    One of my very favorite books so far by this author, I loved Sheridan’s whimsical optimism and pure heart, his chapters always brought a smile to my face. But it was Ainsley that was my favorite, and I hope to see more of him and Senara in the future as their story was one of my favorite parts of the book. I loved how Ainsley is so open about his faith, quick to offer comfort and wisdom, yet human himself he isn’t immune to doubts.

    Full of adventure and daring, I loved how the dynamic slowly changed between Beth and Sheridan as she begrudgingly lets him work with her, as well as their humorous banter. It was an absolute delight to be in Sheridan’s head, he is a rare man indeed, childlike in some ways, yet so wise in others. One of my favorite scenes in the whole book was when he showed that he had been listening to Ainsley all along.

    Overall, there was not one thing that I didn’t love about this story, excellent plot, captivating characters that brought a smile to my face, high adventure, dear Mamm-wynn, a lovely comedic touch, and thoughtfully rendered messages of faith. Beth is a daring heroine, but even she needs help sometimes. And I just wanted to give Senara a hug to help her through everything on her mind. You will not want to miss this fantastic new favorite from Roseanna M. White, it is a five start read all the way through!

    What a fun story! Sheridan cracked me up throughout the story, he was hilarious! The humor of this book was definitely my favorite thing about the story. The mystery element was exciting and picked up nicely where book 1 in this series leaves off. A lovely and enjoyable read!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher and also purchased my own Audible copy. I was not required to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.

    This book was amazing, to say the least!
    Sigh! Oh gosh, I’m in love with Sheridan! I definitely wouldn’t think I would say that when I read the first installment of “The Secrets of the Isles” Series. But getting to know him in this book totally changed my mind about him. And I loved the enemies to lover’s trope. I always love how a person can change the opinion of another in like 180 degrees just by spending time and getting to know him/her, and by having one goal in common!
    This is 1906 and the book continues where the first one left. Even if you can read it as a standalone, there is so much you will miss if you don’t read the first one, I think. Especially in the character development part. There are many wonderful side characters to love!
    Elizabeth -Beth- Tremayne has an adventurous spirit. So different from her older brother Ollie, the vicar in the Isles of Scilly. On the first book, she discovers an old collection of letters from a Pirate Prince, and a map buried on her grandfather’s property. She contacts a person that betrays her and puts her life and that of her family in danger.
    Marquess Lord Theodore Sheridan, commonly going by just “Sheridan” is an antique collector and lover. He has a vast estate in mainland (I love how they express like that of Great Britain). And he definitely loves adventures too -that’s one thing in common with Beth- so he initially travels to the Isles of Scilly with the Earl of Telford, his best friend, to visit Telford’s sister, Libby, who happens to be his own fiancée, or so he thinks, who is vacationing in the Isles, where her brother suspects something is strangely afoot. There, he not only discovers he is no longer, or never was, engaged to Libby, but also that Beth Tremayne was the original owner of his latest antique acquisition -paid for-, a small trunk with Pirate Prince Rupert’s crest on it, and he just happens to be a long-distance descendant of the said Pirate Prince. He wants to discover everything about this ancestor of his. But for Beth, he’s nothing but a thief, because she never meant to sell it, she was betrayed by her friend’s family. But circumstances -we may as well say Providence-, and maybe a strong interest in finding clues to the Pirate’s lost treasure, throws them together in this dangerous search, and the sparks that fly are not one sided for sure. Adventure awaits them, but is the treasure worth everything, even risking the strong love that’s surging in their hearts?
    The plot was amazing, it kept my interest from page one until the end, with such twists and turns, the unsolved mystery, the danger… The best of all were definitely the characters, main and secondary, but I’ll concentrate on the main. Sheridan was so much fun and naïve, a bit clumsy with words, but he was so endearing, I fell fast for him. Beth is quick witted and strong minded, and I loved their verbal spars. They made me smile. The romance was clean, enemies to lovers (well enemies only on Beth’s side), and I loved how Sheridan’s big heart won Beth over and melted her defenses as they got to really know each other as they are. The historical part was so detailed and masterfully narrated, it felt so real. The different expressions of the islanders. My best endearment word is now “dearovim”, I love that! And also, the faith inspired message of a Loving God who cares about you and your destiny, including your miseries, mistakes and all, and to learn to trust Him, even when things become almost impossible. The need to forgive and being forgiven. The value of true love against anything else, especially wordly treasures. So many things!
    It was a fantastic book I can’t recommend highly enough! It made me feel as if I was inside the story, loving each character and suffering with their struggles and trials. I’m in love with this series! Can’t wait for the next book! Senara’s story? Hopefully…

    Another fun and heartwarming romantic adventure from the expert pen of Roseanna M. White!

    I can always trust Roseanna to deliver on three things: vividly crafted characters, engaging plots that deliver the perfect amount of surprises and suspense, and careful historical detail that adds to the story instead of weighing it down. And of course, she did just that with her latest installment in the Secrets of the Isles series, To Treasure an Heiress.

    I will admit it took me a little longer to get into this story than I normally do with one of Roseanna’s books, but I’m not sure that it’s the story’s fault due to the fact that I was trying to read it during the hectic Christams season. It wasn’t often that I was able to sit and read for long stretches of time, so I think that was more the problem than anything. Because when I did have a chance to read for longer than a few minutes at a time, I did really enjoy the story. It was exciting to return to the Scillies after so thoroughly enjoying my first “trip” there in book one. I also loved seeing familiar faces (especially Mamm-wynn!) and watching some story threads continue from the first book, since this one picks up almost exactly where that one left off.

    I wasn’t sure what to make of Sheridan when he was introduced in the previous book–I could kind of sympathize with Libby’s reluctance to marry him. But even with that, Beth’s initial “hatred” of him began to wear on me–I mean, just give the poor guy a break! Seeing things through Sheridan’s eyes (and hearing his hilarious inner monologue) soon won me over and I couldn’t wait for Beth to finally realize how foolish she was being. Once she warmed up to him, their witty banter and Sheridan’s relentless teasing about marriage was a hoot to read! While Sheridan hasn’t dethroned Phillip Camden as my favorite of Roseanna’s heroes, he is one of her most endearing and certainly most hilarious leading men.

    As always, Roseanna’s secondary characters are just as great as her MC’s. I enjoyed Senara’s story (and isn’t that a lovely name?), and oh my goodness–Sheridan’s sisters! They were so much fun to “meet” and their personalities explain much about why Sheridan is the way he is.

    I loved seeing how the treasure hunt from book one carried over into this book. Roseanna really took it up a notch and made the race to find Mucknell’s pirate treasure even more exciting. It was incredibly satisfying how everything was resolved, though it’s hard to say exactly why without giving away spoilers! I am curious to see where things will go from here–what part of Mucknell’s treasure the Tremaynes and friends will discover next and how things will finally be resolved with the dastardly Scofield’s.

    If you love historical romance filled with humor, wit, and a healthy dose of adventure, then get your copies of both The Nature of a Lady AND To Treasure an Heiress. This series makes the perfect armchair travel anytime of year! 5/5 Stars.

    PS: I couldn’t help but think of how AMAZING it would be to have a spinoff novella or something with Sheridan and Beth teaming up with Ara, her father, and Cam from On Wings of Devotion! Just picture it–it’s shortly after the end of WW1 and Sheridan and Ara’s father, who I imagine would make great friends, plan an expedition to South America! Cam can pilot their plane and all five of them go on this wild, hilarious adventure to find some treasure in the jungle. If you’re reading this, Roseanna, please at least consider something of the sort! LOL! 😂😍

    The humor in this book was awesome!! I was laughing out loud so often.
    Sheridan is a wonderful character and I really mean character!!! He’s funny and kind without feeling fake or false. I grew to like Beth, and enjoyed all the new characters. I love how some of the minor characters won my heart. I hope to see them (Ainsley and Senara!) in future books. Although I could do without….well, you know if you’ve read it.
    I like the part about shame and what its purpose is. I keep thinking over it and loved the wisdom and truth.
    I will definitely reread this book an I marked several of the funnier pages to go back and read when I need a laugh!!
