Review: Treasured By: Candace Camp

Treasured (Secrets Of The Loch, #1)Treasured by Candace Camp
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Isobel Rose has just found out that her brother has lost their family estate, Baillannan, in a card game to an Englishman, Jack Kensington. To make matters horrible, she had to find out from the man himself. The Rose name has held this property and it's people safe, now all is in jeopardy, and the solution Isobel offers is marriage.
Jack Kensington was expecting to sell the property that he found himself with, until he found it came with a sister and aunt attached to it. An attraction to the lady helped quite a bit and the tales of buried treasure only made him think of the treasure he found in her. He came from nothing and the offer of marriage comes as a big surprise. Hopefully he can marry and stay alive long enough to enjoy married life, for these "accidents" that are befalling him might end his life.

I really enjoyed the characters, their banter and their chemistry. The secondary add dimensional qualities and have lives of their own sure to be seen in upcoming books. There is a bit of mystery, that hasn't yet been completely solved, leaving the reader wanting more and some of that Scottish whimsical lyrical type writing that makes storytelling breathtaking, even if it is a romance.
