Overview

A Top 10 Nook Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!

England, 1677

Lily Ashcroft is far and away the most conventional member of her eccentric family. Though she fell for dashing Oxford professor Lord Randal Nesbitt at the tender age of sixteen, she buried her feelings in deference to society's expectation that her older sisters marry first. Four years later, her sister Rose has now set her sights on Rand—and though it breaks her heart, what else can Lily do but help her beloved sister land the man of her dreams?

What no one considers are Rand's feelings on the matter. He's been nursing a secret affection for sweet, compassionate Lily ever since their first meeting. But Rose is just as beautiful and shares his academic interests. Now he finds himself caught between two lovely sisters—the one he's expected to wed and the one who's captured his heart...

Meet the Author

I decided to become a writer in the third grade (or, as my Canadian friends call it, grade three), after winning a "Why My Mother is the Greatest" essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper. Seeing my words in print was a thrill! But everyone told me it's too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book. A mistake? Maybe...but my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, "Write what you know." And I learned a good lesson: Don't let other people tell you what you can or can't do!

I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the 17th and 19th centuries (Restoration and Regency periods). I've been oh-so-lucky to see my books hit bestseller lists all over the world, including the New York Times and USA Today lists, making this second career a real dream come true. I live in Southern California with my husband, our three young adult children, and one constantly shedding cat, and I still think my mother is the greatest!

    warm historical romance

    In 1673, after sixteen-year-old Lily Ashcroft meets aristocratic scholar Randal Nesbit she challenges the family motto of ¿Question Convention¿. Lily realizes she has found her life mate and wants a very conventional marriage to the decade older Randal. He is extremely attracted to Lily but he keeps reminding himself she is only sixteen. In fact he uses that rationalization for the next four years to keep his distance. However, Rand sees Lily during a Baptism of her twin nephew and niece and he knows he no longer can hide behind her under age status, nor does he want too. He simply desires marriage to his beloved Lily. However, she concludes that her sister Rose has set her sights on Rand and Lily decides to sacrifice her own happiness for her family. However, neither sibling understands that to Rand a Rose is not a Rose as his preference run towards a different flower. LILY, the second bloom in Lauren Royal¿s seventeenth century romantic bouquet (see VIOLET) is an enjoyable tale starring two nice people who (with Rose) make an interesting triangle. The story line is entertaining, but no character is deeply developed and the conflict is not that powerful. Still, readers will enjoy a warm historical romance starring charming protagonists who want no one hurt. Harriet Klausner

    Excellent Regency Romance

    The story of Lily and Rand seems very straight forward. They find immediate chemistry with each of very quickly in the book. But Lauren Royal, the wonderful story teller she is, weaves so many road blocks with twists and turns you almost doubt the early predictable ending. I would highly recommend this book.JM

    Have read all of Lauren's books, and this one was one of the best. So good to see some of all the characters and what happened to all of them.

    Stan to Lily

    No, that's not wierd at all! Different people are different heights. He might not have gotten any growth spurts yet, or he might be naturally 'short.' But that's part of what makes him who he is! Size, shape, looks, and height doesn't really matter, as long as you fell for his personality.<p>

    Hope this helped! -Stan&#9786

    Great historic romance

    Loved this trilogy by Lauren Royal as much as the original trilogy that led up to this set. She takes a lot of privileges with history to make it fun and exciting but also gives the non-fictionalized version of the people and events at the end of the book.

    Read and discover if justice and truth will win

    Lilly is the youngest of the Ashcroft sisters, her heart is tender, she is sweet and dreams of building a home for animals.
    Rand is a successful professor at Oxford, he has worked hard for his position and he has thought of little else, but Lilly for four years, she was too young when he last saw her, now she's not. Rand is not interested in a woman who is like him in her interests, he wants a woman to complete him.
    there are obstacles to Love, there is the promise to her sister Rose to help rose win Rand, and there is his estranged Family, a family that seems insurmountable.

    definately recomend

    I started with this one and should have started reading Violet first then Rose then Lily, but I liked it. I liked how hard Ford worked to make her love him.

    Lauren Royal keeps you interested

    I liked that she includes a bit of intrigue in her novels. Always a page-turner.
    Always romantic. Thanks Ms. Royal!

    I don't know how but this writer grabs your interest and just in

    I don't know how but this writer grabs your interest and just inhales you into the story instantly! I started book 2 in the trilogy and thought , &quot;The second is never so good as the firs.&quot; WAS I WRONG! It was great and both sisters grew and leaned as the story went along.
    Rose at for quite a while was a shallow twit but did grow and learn (somewhat) and her love for her sister trumped her pride!
    LILY the star of this book was just a heroine that you wish you could be like. The hero is all that you could wish for and more.

    I could hardly wait to start on number 3 which I just finished and it's as good as or better than this one! They just keep getting better and this author brings the sisters together so you see how they have all matured. It's great reading.

    Fun read

    What another great read from Lauren! I love the character development that carries from book to book! This was a pretty fast read with some breath holding from time to time. Not quite as much action & drama as the Jewel Trilogy or even the first book in this series but still worth a read!
