This is book 2 in the Regency Treasure Hunters series
Never wanting to be an Earl, Major Elijah Hollister is just trying to get his life and estate together after the death of his brother. When Miss Catriona Bowen shows up at his door looking for a treasure map, he starts to believe that his brother's death was no accident. Now on the hunt for answers, he plans on keeping Catriona close to see what she might know.
Catriona is trying to make a name for herself by finding one of Britain's greatest treasures, but she needs Eliah's help to do so. Can she convince him that helping her will also help him find his brother's murderer?
I fell in love with Burke's writing when I read The DeValery Code. This story starts the next generation of that family. Catriona is the daughter of the previous H/H. Just like the previous story there is lots of adventure to keep the reader enthralled with the story.
I loved Catriona! She was a woman that was determined to do what she wanted and wasn't going to allow anyone to stop her. She wanted to make a name for herself in a profession, that was at that time, for men-only. She needed a man that would allow her to be herself, but was strong enough not to let her run all over him. Elijah was the perfect match!
I really hope that Burke is continuing with this series, as it is one of my favorites!
