My favorite book EVER!
I loved this book. Even though I made the mistake of reading it before the first two, I still went back to this after after finally reading the other two. I really liked Kit's charcter, and there was something about Rose that just seemed real, that her other two sisters never had.

Rose-this long awaited book holds true to the other sisters who came before. Not an woman of her time but before her time. Raised to pick her own husband Rose sets out to do just that. She finds Kit Martyn but there's a problem, he doesn't have a title. Will that stop Rose from following her heart? I'm not telling the details of this fun romantic romp. Pick it up today¿you won't put it down until you're finished.

In 1677 England, twenty-one years old Rose Ashcroft is considered by friends, family, and herself as a spinster especially with her younger sister getting married. Advice to her usually runs to hiding her intelligence and settle for someone less than Prince Charming as Rose is an aristocratic snob in terms of a potential spouse.<P> Architect Kit Martyn and Rose are very attracted to each other. However, neither welcomes the feelings as he is beneath her husband criteria as a commoner and he rejects love having seen his parents die young and poor. Her mother thinks they are perfect for one another and plans to push them into one another arms even if her daughter says no and the selected groom wants an aristocrat for his sister not him.<P> The latest seventeenth century flowery romance is a solid tale due to the attitudes of the lead protagonists. Neither one wants to fall in love with the other as each has an ¿acceptable standard that their beloved fails to attain. The story line is fun to follow as ROSE learns love is the class equalizer and Kit finds out that though his parents were impoverished they were happy because they cherished one another.<P> Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
