WORTHY OF LEGEND by Roseanna M. White, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

With plenty of suspense and adventure, Roseanna M. White concludes her Secrets of the Isles series with the story of Lady Emily and Bram, Earl of Telford. Filled with daring deeds and imagination, and populated with colorful, engaging characters and a few villains, this story continues the tale set in the Scilly Islands off the coast of Cornwall in 1906. With White’s wit and humor thrown in, this makes for a lively and entertaining story.

“And he had no need to worry about Lady Abbie and Lady Millicent. They were more Sheridan’s mothers than sisters, and they could intimidate the lichen off a stone if they glared at it enough.”

It was fun to have the stars of the previous books of the series continue in this one. Although this could possibly be read alone, I would strongly suggest the books in the series be read in order, as I feel you need the backstory from the others to really understand what is going on.
I always enjoy this author’s inspirational messages which are integrated seamlessly into the story. They add an additional layer and are uplifting to the reader.

“Choose mercy. Always choose mercy.”

This book has something for everyone—suspense, action, adventure, inspiration, and a strong dose of romance and gallantry. I would recommend this to readers who enjoy historical romance.

BackCover Blurb:

After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends must hide the unprecedented discoveries they've made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother, who will stop at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family--even if it means being cut off entirely.

Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table--an interest he's kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed on the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together.

As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her family and a team of archaeologists. In a race against time, it is up to them to decide what makes a hero worthy of legend. Is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure . . . or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love?
