Spotlight: The Lost Heiress by Roseanna White
The first book in the series, is magical and I love that I am able to share it with you today!
Description of Book
Brook Eden has never known where she truly belongs. Though raised in the palace of Monaco, she’s British by birth and was brought to the Grimaldis under suspicious circumstances as a babe. When Brook’s friend Justin uncovers the fact that Brook is likely a missing heiress from Yorkshire, Brook leaves the sun of the Mediterranean to travel to the moors of the North Sea to the estate of her supposed family.
The mystery of her mother’s death haunts her, and though her father is quick to accept her, the rest of the family and the servants of Whitby Park are not. Only when Brook’s life is threatened do they draw close–but their loyalty may come too late to save Brook from the same threat that led to tragedy for her mother.
As heir to a dukedom, Justin is no stranger to balancing responsibilities. When the matters of his estate force him far from Brook, the distance between them reveals that what began as friendship has grown into something much more. But how can their very different loyalties and responsibilities ever come together?
And then, for a second time, the heiress of Whitby Park is stolen away because of
the very rare treasure in her possession–and this time only the servants of Whitby can save her.

I hope you will enjoy catching a glimpse of each book that leads up to the fantastic third book in this series. Here is a fun list to give you the craving to read The Ladies of the Manor Series.
5 Reasons to Read Roseanna White’s Ladies of the Manor Series
- Downton Abbey has nothing on these story plots. So if you are in need of some D. A. fix here you go!
- If you judge books by their covers, you CAN’T find prettier covers, I have looked. I have serious envy of wanting to be a cover model now.
- The writing style is amazing. I know, I usually love all the writing styles I read, but Roseanna White really has a way with words.
- Romance and Mystery. Think Diamonds are a girl’s best friend… And add the twist!
- Description is big deal breaker for readers, and these characters are beautifully described. I know the men are on my fictional boyfriend list now.
So what are you waiting for, go download, buy or borrow these books. They won’t let you down!
