Description

1906
Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn't favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage's former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished.

Oliver Tremayne--gentleman and clergyman--is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he's happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth's summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it's the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can't quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.

As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.

"The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna M. White is an excellent novel full of mystery, adventure, and romance. It has pirates, treasure, ghosts, murder, and lifelong rivalries that will keep the pages turning. . . I highly recommend The Nature of a Lady to anyone who enjoys historical romance with a bit of mystery thrown in. This is the first book in the Secrets of the Isles series and I will be anxiously awaiting the next book." --Fresh Fiction

"The idyllic setting forms a perfect backdrop for the events which unfold; strange sightings, unexplained deaths, family feuds, hidden treasure, intrigue and danger, all the hallmarks of a romantic mystery where suspicions abound. . . .The story is cocooned in the wondrous mystery of the ocean, the beaches, the flora and fauna, which settles into comfortable narrative pacing; however, White never loses sight of the goal - to weave a tale that is absorbing to the very last page. Romance blossoms, and two couples unexpectedly find love."--Historical Novel Reviews
