A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
Pasts Collide in New Orleans when a Treasure Goes Missing
The last time New Orleans attorney Jean-Luc Valmont saw Maribel Cordoba, a Spanish nobleman’s daughter, she was an eleven-year-old orphan perched in the riggings of his privateering vessel proving herself as the best lookout on his crew. Until the day his infamy caught up with them all and innocent lives were lost. Unsure why he survived but vowing to make something of the chance he was given, Jean-Luc has buried his past life so deep that no living person will ever find it—until a very much alive and very grown up Maribel Cordoba arrives on his doorstep and threatens all he now holds dear
This is the second book in this series, however, the only thing really connecting the two is the family tree, so you could pick this one up and not be lost at all.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was so good. I was surprised how long we were with Maribel as a child and not an adult, pretty much half of the book was her very young. But I understood why the more I read. It really established the relationship between Jean and Maribel.
That being said, I couldn’t wait for them to meet again when she was an adult and it did not disappoint.
This was a quick read for me because it was so engaging.
I can’t wait to read the next book (all books are by different authors).
