Overview

In this charming historical romance, an enticing attorney and a determined suffragette learn the hard way that there’s more to life—and love—than getting their way.
 
No one could accuse the Appleton sisters of embracing tradition. After all, they’ve earned their living as spiritualists ever since their parents’ tragic death—and are succeeding famously. Now Winifred Appleton hopes to champion the rights of women by becoming a lawyer. But when she learns that no law school will accept a woman, Winifred is left with just one choice: accepting an apprenticeship from Charles Howe—and trying to ignore the fiery passion the handsome prosecutor arouses.
 
Intrigued by Winifred’s spirit—and tempted by her beauty—Charles believes that taking her under his wing is a flawless plan. She’ll surely buckle under the pressure of pursuing her career, leaving him free to propose a different kind of partnership: matrimony. But when the pair are pitted on opposite sides of a contentious murder trial, they learn that love is the only argument that matters.
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Tempting a Devil, The Story Guy, and Friday Night Alibi.

    Entertaining Americana romance

    In 1874 New York, former spiritualist Winifred Appleton applies for entrance to various law schools, but is rejected by everyone because she is female. Desperate to further the cause of women¿s rights using the system, Winifred accepts the only offer she has in the legal world, as an apprentice law clerk to her best friend state prosecutor Charles Howe. <P>In spite of the howling of the media about this appointment that defies God¿s words, Charles goes ahead and teaches Winifred the law. He loves Winifred and sees this as an opportunity for him to spend time with his beloved. Though he loves watching Winifred¿s use her Joan of Arc like passion to further the suffragette movement, Charles figures this is just a passing phase. He plans to marry his apprentice. However, the best laid plans of mice and Charles goes astray when they end up on opposite sides of a murder case. <P>COURTING TROUBLE pays homage to the late nineteenth-early twentieth centuries' women who led the suffrage movement. Clearly done with respect and awe towards the great women of the past, Katie Rose crafts a wonderful historical romance that will please sub-genre fans as well as readers of historical fiction. The story line is fast-paced and entertaining with insight into a bygone Americana era. The lead couple is an exciting duo while the secondary players make the tale brim with the feel, mood, and tolerance of Reconstruction era New York. Ms. Rose shows her talent by making A CASE FOR ROMANCE an entertaining means to learn about our heritage. <P>Harriet Klausner
