To Treasure an Heiress Roseanna M White is the second installment in the Secrets of the Isles series. Beth Tremayne knows there’s a treasure to be found somewhere in the Scillies where she lives, all the clues point to it. Unfortunately, to find it, she must work with the insufferable Lord Sheridan.
Lord Sheridan took one look at Beth and fancied himself in love with her, so what if she can’t stand the sight of him? It’s just a matter of time before he wears her down.
My Review of To Treasure an Heiress
To Treasure an Heiress has all the elements of a good treasure hunt story: a pirate, hidden loot, bad guys, and a bunch of people after the same pot of gold.
The book also had relatable characters who struggled to find their place in the world, made mistakes, and questioned their fate. There was also a beautiful, slightly comical love story, as well as one with a tragic ending.
The Characters in To Treasure an Heiress
I loved Sheridan. He was funny, approachable, and kind. He was the perfect fit for Beth who needed someone to care for her while being content to give her the adventure her soul craved.
I also enjoyed the minor characters and the secondary storyline involving Ainsley and Senara. I look forward to reading Emily’s story as I long to see her step away from her deceptive, evil-minded family.
Lord Sheridan’s sisters were entertaining but I could easily see they were best administered in small doses as they were a bit overwhelming and did tend to take over a scene.
The Themes in To Treasure an Heiress
Readers will be reminded that we have the great privilege of being used by God. We should therefore live our lives in a way that gives glory to Him and not ourselves.
Senara’s story reminds us that we all make mistakes but even when we do, our worth is not diminished in God’s eyes. The enemy would like to remind us of our shame in the hopes that we’ll never rise above it. But God redeems, He restores and that’s what we ought to focus on.
Final Thoughts on To Treasure an Heiress
One of the things I liked about To Treasure an Heiress was the sense of community that was created among the characters in the Scillies. They all came from different backgrounds and income brackets yet they were able to find common ground and work amicably together.
To Treasure an Heiress is the second book in The Secrets of the Isles Book series. While there are elements and storylines that carry over from the first book, To Treasure an Heiress may be read as a stand-alone.

About To Treasure an Heiress (The Secrets of the Isles Book #2)
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?
