By 1860, Emilie Fox has probably become London's best female thief. Perhaps her motive for success is knowing she must care for her younger siblings. Her latest caper starts when she steals a painting from Valin North, Marquis of Westfield. Behind the painting lies letters that provide information on where the legendary treasure of Agincourt Hall is hidden.
Emmie concocts a plot to gain access to Agincourt, ancestral home of Valin. She pretends to be a débutante and wangles an invitation to the Hall. Meanwhile, Valin needs an heir to end family pressure. However, before he co-produces the next generation, he needs a spouse. Until he met Emmie, all the females seemed insipid. Emmie is an enigma whom he now loves. She returns his feelings, but she has a mission to complete. Additionally, if he uncovers her true identity, their relationship will end before it truly begins.
THE TREASURE is a cleverly designed Victorian romance tale that will arouse the passions of sub-genre fans. The story line is exciting, but the depth behind the characters is simply awe-inspiring. Readers will understand the motives and desires of more than just the lead protagonists and the era are depicted accurately to reflect that. Anyone who believes that nineteenth century English romance novels have lately been non-entertaining will feel rescued by Suzanne Robinson's fine tale.

Suzanne Robinson has a wonderful way of writing heroes. Headstrong, compelling, charismatic. And she has no qualms about writing lead characters originating from the London gutters. In this case, the heroine Emmie Fox is a street thief and gang leader.
And my, my, the interaction between those two simply sizzles and smoulders with sexual heat. Oooh mama mia.
However, Emmie lies and lies just too much in the story, making her a less compelling heroine. It is the oh-so-roguish hero who caught my imagination and makes me continue reading.

When I read historical romance novels, I tend to like the brooding, rakish type male lead that transforms through love etc. But Robinson's hero Valin North pleasantly surprised me. At the start he comes across as cold and rudely mannered, but in fact I found him very funny (in a good way) and well more passionate then anything. He is desperate to keep his family happy and together, and the love he has for them is very real and blatant. So when he falls in love with Emmie (even after all the lying - though she only does this to protect her and her family) it's believable and you can understand why he is so passionate about their relationship and just can't walk away from her.

North has a reputation, like most hero's of this genre, but it is not focused on, nor is really important to the story line. I couldn't help laughing when he and his dog Maggie sneak past his Aunts room so she can not hear him and takes off to hide in his study. I am not use to hero's retreating merely to spend some time by himself without being annoyed by other family members because he is far too nice just to tell them to go away and leave him alone. And the way he dismisses each eligible Miss his Aunt is thrusting his way is also very funny, the first chapter with the young lady where all he hears is all her words stringing together is hilarious.

I personally liked Emmie our heroine. I found her funny and very loyal, something I respect a lot. She is constantly living her life to make her family safe and happy and even though she lies constantly to North you can't help but forgive her for such offences. She is capable and I love it when she and North argue as she can quite easy match him verbally (which is something North is not use to). I love it when she talks in thieves cant and doesn't bother to hide her raw language. I am so use to proper young females, to finally hear a heroine to tell the hero to "Sod off" and other such things I found thoroughly amusing. And I loved the part when North escapes the bedroom after she's been throwing things at him (they are arguing just after they have made love) and he locks the door retreating behind it. And she yells at him to get back in here so she can punch him!

I really enjoyed this book, and found it funny and different. Have a read, you won't be disappointed.

Lately I have been reading a lot of romance novels. When I stumbled across this one it sounded pretty good, so I decided to read it even though I hadn't read anything by this author before.

I took a chance, and was disappointed. I thought the plot for this book was really good- I liked the way it was going. But the romance fell flat- rated PG, if you will. I like my romance rated PG-13 or even R sometimes- with passion! The romance scenes didn't create enough steam to cook a pea! There was no detail, it was bing-bang-boom. It left me thinging: "What? oh, they just made love...I think?"

I also thought that Valin, the leading male role, lost his tough exterior too easily.

I would love to have this book rewritten by one of my favorite authors, sorry Suzanne. Pass this book by and pick up a good Quinn, Lindsey, or Roberts.

I've spent the afternoon reading reviews of Suzanne Robinson's books at various websites; Treasure just isn't a treasure. It's getting grades of F and one out of four stars. Beware.
