Spotlight and Giveaway: The Last Treasure

You cannot give an obsessed Hamilton fan a book involving Theodosia Burr without expecting this song to play in an endless loop in their head. The Theodosia story line definitely interests Melissa A about Erika Marks' latest novel, The Last Treasure, which was published this week. And the gorgeous cover is the icing on the literary cake! Thanks to Berkley, we have one copy for a lucky reader!


From the author of It Comes in Waves and The Guest House comes a novel of three lives entangled in the secrets of the sea and the enduring bonds of love.

As students with a shared passion for shipwrecks, Liv, Sam, and Whit formed a close bond searching for the mysterious Patriot, a schooner that disappeared off the Carolina Coast in 1812 with Aaron Burr’s daughter Theodosia aboard. But as the elusive ship drew them together, love would bring them even closer—and ultimately tear them apart.

It’s been nine years since Liv left Sam to be with Whit, and the once close-knit triowent their separate ways. Liv has given up her obsession with Theodosia Burr to focus on her career as a salvage diver and her passionate but troubled marriage to the reckless and hedonistic Whit. But when a diary of Theodosia’s is discovered in a collector’s estate, she is pulled back to the world of the Patriot, this time with startling new clues to what might have really happened.

Diving back into the lost history of the Patriot could be just what Liv needs to find closure to a mystery that still haunts her. But when she and Whit reunite with Sam for one last salvage in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, buried romantic tensions begin to resurface, and once again Liv must choose between two men with very different hearts.


On the winding road to publishing, Erika Marks has worked as a carpenter, an illustrator, an art director for a woodworking magazine, and a cake decorator. A native New Englander, raised in Maine, she now lives and writes love stories set by the sea in North Carolina.  She is the author of the novels Little Gale Gumbo, The Mermaid Collector, The Guest House, and It Comes in Waves. Visit Erika at her website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

I don't go too far back in history, so I think I would like to see Elvis or Marilyn Monroe in books.

This book sounds amazing. This is a new author for me and I would love to experience the writing style of this author. I would love to read about Ernest Hemingway.

I'm thinking one of the Ancient Egyptian pharaohs.

I am becoming more and more interested in both Hamilton and Burr since the play came out! My daughter and I listened to the cast album on our drive from Dallas to Oklahoma a few weeks ago! I don't have a favorite, but I hope to be able to see this show some time! I'd love to read a story about Martha Washington, and get the insight on what it was like to be the FIRST first lady, the wife of the first elected leader to a brand new country! It must have been exciting and scary at the same time!

I'm not going back in history really, but I would love to see Michelle Obama incorporated into a novel. :)

Ben Daniels said...

Re Hamilton, it's the same thing I love about novels - family & connection & authenticity. I don't know how anyone can really listen to a song like Burn without tears.

Jennifer Essad said...

I've loved seeing Hamilton on tv and wish I could see w/the original cast in NYC. I think it's genius

Hailey Fish said...

I'd like a book written on the real Hannible Lector aka Albert Fish (whom I think is one of my ancestors)
