Melissa must pose as a stranger’s wife, it’s her only way to get to her niece. Sebastian is the ‘husband’ but the darling Dona is proving to be a temptation he can’t resist. When a death on the steamship leads to her family, there’s danger added to their budding romance.
I want to start off by saying I’m not a huge fan of historical but the author managed to hook me in the genre with this book, Fool’s Gold. Melissa has to make a deal in order to get to her niece. It doesn’t hurt that her ‘husband’ is a handsome banker and miner. There’s a mysterious death, questions, action, danger and sweet romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery and how it kept me turning the pages. I would have liked more heat in the romance though. If you like the historical genre or a good mystery, you’re definitely going to enjoy Fool’s Gold.
