Tempting Treasures

Michele Buchholz
Regency Romance

"They were now witnesses to his humiliation, thus proving just how distracting beauty could be."

Lady Elena St John has run her deceased grandfather's estate alone, unbeknownst to its new owner, the Earl of Richmond.  She has to.  There is an old family secret, and the lure of a buried treasure that could give her independence she doesn't have as a ward to an unknown earl.  The problem is, the only one who knows meaning behind the mysterious clues is the ghost of Lady Katherine, and she isn't telling.  Though that doesn't stop her from pestering her descendent as she searches.  When the Earl of Richmond returns from war and discovers his overlooked responsibilities, he is determined to get the the bottom of the strange and beautiful girl he finds running his estate.  As she hides secret after secret, and things get more and more dangerous, Elena must decide if she can trust James with her secrets, and her future.  

My Opinion: This was an exciting story with some really great twists and turns.  I liked Elena and James.  Their chemistry was good, and they got some nice toe-curling scenes between them.  The emotions ran a roller coaster and pulled you along with the mystery.  Unfortunately, I felt like the mystery lost steam at times, and was a bit unsatisfactory in its actualization.  The characters were a bit inconsistent at times, with unsubstantiated emotions.  I did enjoy the side characters that filled in the story, especially Katherine.  The English and grammatical mistakes were distracting.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
