Lori Wick’s bestselling English Garden series (more than 720,000 copies sold) is filled with engaging characters and stories. Now with fresh, new covers, each of the four books in the series will hold a favorite spot on the nightstand or bookshelf of any reader who loves a great romance.

The Rescue, book two in the series, is set in 1811 England. When Anne Gardiner slips from a ladder into the arms of a stranger, her father, Colonel Gardiner, deems the innocent embrace cause for immediate marriage.

Weston eventually sees that the “marriage” was performed for the Colonel’s sake and that Anne had no choice. When he learns that she’s sacrificed her own reputation to protect his name, Weston finds himself drawn to Anne.

But will these two guarded people give love a chance? And can they trust God enough to step into a new, real relationship?

From Barnes & Noble
Religious readers and devotees of romances will enjoy this tender novel about a young woman who falls (literally) into the arms of a handsome stranger and (metaphorically) into a hornet's nest of problems.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

    Lori Wick has done it again. She seems to be able to create romance books with such class where sex is not being shoved in your face every page. It is nice to finally have a book where love can be created between charecters in a tasteful way. She is a great author and this books is one of my favorites!

    A good book to read

    I really liked The Proposal, and I think The Rescue is eqally good. The storyline is an excellent example for today's society and the world in which we live. The story is based on respect, committment, trust, and love in God and each other. The characters seem very real and have validity to them. It may start out a little 'unreal' the underlying message is good. It's a great book. I love how Lori keeps you informed of the other characters from the first novel, since you get attached to them after reading #1! It's a great book.

    Inspiring

    This novel slipped back into the skeptical pattern established by 'Bamboo and Lace' and a couple of her others. But despite the moderately unbelievable plot and the slightly less believable characters, she managed to pull off another inspiring story. I enjoyed it.

    Fabulous!

    I absolutely loved this book! It was fantastic. I liked the first book, The Proposal, quite a bit but I honestly believe The Rescue to be better. I disagree with those who claim there is no character development- quite the opposite- there is ample development of the characters as is Lorie's style. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a good Christian romance!

    I don't know

    I'm currently reading this book and I don't know if I really like it. I mean, there's no character development or much descriptions about the place the characters are living in. I'm alittle disappointed.

    She's done it again!

    I am amazed by how I am pulled into every story Lori Wick writes. This story is very unique and so believable. The main characters have virtues that I strive to have and are incredibly inspirational. Thank you, Lori!
