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.

I treasured To Treasure an Heiress! Beth’s hunt for a pirate’s booty was fraught with danger and mystery. And a romance she didn’t expect or desire.
Sheridan was one of my favorite heroes of all time. He was witty and charming. His sudden and strong attraction to Beth was so fun, especially how he was constantly calculating how many decades it would take to reverse her poor opinion of him – and how long he should wait to propose. And taking the slightest encouragement as proclamations of love. Oh, and the list he made for his sisters to prove to them why a “mere island girl” would be a good match for a marquess.
Not everything was fun and games, however. A lapse in judgment caused Senara guilt, shame, and the loss of her position. I loved how the author took this situation and turned it into an opportunity to share the grace and mercy found only in Christ. Roseanna M. White presents spiritual truths in illustrations that are beautiful and insightful.
Delightful characters, exciting mystery, and a breathtaking setting combine to produce this lovely historical romance that will delight its readers.
