In twenty-four hours, marriage, mystery, and mayhem.

After recently arriving in Vancouver Island on a bride ship, aspiring seamstress Daisy Harper is determined not to rush into a hasty and quarrelsome marriage, a mistake her parents made. To avoid choosing the wrong man, she creates a rigorous list of ten requirements for a potential husband.

Mapmaker Seth Ryann moved to the colony to assist his partially blind brother, a local missionary. They’ll soon return to Ireland, but first, Seth is tasked by a friend to find a treasure of gold hidden in the mountains. Seth has the map to the treasure, but he’s missing the key.

When he discovers Daisy somehow has the key, the two agree to search for the treasure together. They’re left with little choice but to quickly enter a marriage of convenience. As they venture into the wilderness and work together to overcome danger, an undeniable attraction grows. But will they find the treasure only to lose what matters most?


Book Review

Thank you to Sunrise Publishing and the authors for the ARC of His Treasured Bride by Jody Hedlund and Patti Stockdale. All opinions are my own.

After reading Finally His Bride, which is book one in the Bride Ships: New Voyages series, I knew that I wanted to read the next book to find out what happened with the treasure.



His Treasured Bride is both a romance and a sort of adventure story with characters facing danger and getting to know one another through a marriage of convenience.

Marriage of convenience is one of my favorite tropes, and it was done so well in this story. Seth was very protective of Daisy, and I love how he would do anything for her even though he hadn’t known her for very long.

The romance in this story wasn’t as strong as some of Jody Hedlund’s other stories, but I still enjoyed it. I feel like this book focused more on the friendship between the love interests instead of the romance (although there were a few really sweet romantic moments throughout).

Final Thoughts

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, closed-door historical romance.
