Book Description: 

Dead men tell no tales...

For more than 200 years, the Treasure Pit on Oak Isle has baffled treasure hunters, engineers, and the common man alike. When Samantha Greene arrives, she finds her estranged father has spent years funneling energy and finances into the endeavor, finding nothing.

When an accidental death occurs in the pit, fulfilling the prophecy that seven lives must end before the treasure can be found, the search kicks into high gear, with more than one party vying for the secrets that lie below. Finding herself the closest to the treasure anyone has ever been, Samantha throws herself into the work, landing among the coveted prize. Just as she's about to discover what's truly hidden beneath the island, the pit begins to flood with ocean water, sweeping her away despite her attempts to swim to the surface.

Upon awaking, Samantha discovers that, not only did she not drown, but the year is 1695—one hundred years before the Treasure Pit was even discovered. Carried off by the pirate Tristan O'Rourke, a rouge Irishman with more than his share of secrets, she soon finds that there is much more than she realized in play. Will she discover the secrets of Oak Isle, or will an unexpected love keep her from finding out the truth? Will she ever make it back to her own time? Perhaps the real question is this; will she want to? 

My Review:
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

Swept Away is a time travel adventure romance centered around treasure hunting, pirates and secret societies. The beginning is a little slow as we get to know Samantha and we experience the loss of her parents with her. That was a bit heavy for a time travel romance. Once she travels back to the medieval ages and meets Tristan, the adventure truly begins. I wasn't crazy about the Greek gods part of the story, the occult scene unnecessary, but I thought the book was fun and a quick read. I listened to the audiobook and I thought that Rhiannon Angell does a good job but not always great with the accents. 

Although this is the first book in the Swept Away saga, the ending is satisfying and can be considered a stand alone. In other words, no cliffhanger ending. And it was pretty clean, without bad language or explicit sex scenes.

I enjoyed this novel and thought it was a good book to escape into, but I won't be continuing the series. There are so far 6 books in the series.

  1. Something different! Love your honest review.

  2. I read Frenchman's Creek by Daphne du Maurier earlier this fall - it was good and had pirates. Not my usual fare but I'll keep this title in mind. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I think I have Frenchman's Creek on my bookshelf somewhere. Mmmm...I should look for it.
