Overview

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

England, 1677

The last of three sisters to marry, Lady Rose Ashcroft is determined to land a wealthy, titled husband—a marquess perhaps, or even a duke. Having had her heart broken in the past, she's decided the key to enticing a man lies in hiding her intelligence and academic interests while flaunting her more feminine qualities. Matchmaking mother in tow and strategy firmly in place, Rose heads off to Charles II's court to find love…

And runs smack dab into Christopher "Kit" Martyn, the one man who could ruin all her plans. Kit is a dashing, successful commoner with his sights set on landing the post of official Royal Architect—and he's the only man Rose feels she can honestly talk to about anything. Kit knows the true Rose, and he wants her, but she thinks of him as a family friend. Can he convince her that a title is unimportant compared to the passion he knows they're destined to share?

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!

    Questio Convention

    Beautifully written story. Rose is so close minded on the man she should marry that she almost missed "the one"
    Setting description is perfect inthis book, I felt as though I was there. Was a great finish to a wonderful trilogy. I look forward yo seeing what the author will come up with next!
    Be sure to check out the "Jewel" series as well, I read those first and fell in love the authors writting style.

    Lady Rose learns she acrualy likes kisses.

    Rose wants to get married and only a title with looks and money will do. Even though she dislikes kisses. Mr Kit is rich, handsome and treats her like an equal not to mention his kisses are wonderful, but he is a commoner and he (gasp) works.

    She's Great!

    Rose is the girl I'd like to meet. She's stubborn, free thinking and is bent to get what she wants. Good for her!

    Sometimes what you think you want, is not what you need

    Rose is the second oldest of the Ashcroft sisters, and the last to wed. Rose made a fool of herself once and her heart was wounded, now she is off to court with her matchmaking mother "Mum".
    Rose has always been determined to marry a titled gentleman. The court of King Charles II is an overindulgent orgy at times and Rose finds much of it sickening. Will friendship and her heart win out? Rose is definitely on a road to discovering more about herself.

    Sad to be finished with the Trilogy!

    I've thoroughly enjoyed reading all of Lauren Royal's books. I've read them all! Thank you for the most enjoyable and passionate tales. I've also enjoyed reading the historical facts and basis for the stories. I can't wait until she writes another trilogy!

    At the beginning of this book (till near late middle of it) I th

    At the beginning of this book (till near late middle of it) I thought someone should take Rose and shake her till her teeth rattle but when she learned the truth and realized how wrong she'd been, she doesn't let her pride stop her.
    We met the hero in Lily's book and I was ever so glad the writer brought him back for Rose. She needed a strong hero that would teach her what real love means.
    You had to feel sorry for Kit when his buildings (he's an architect) being built for King Charles---all have problems and he's up to his neck in troubles at the building site and then he has to content with Rose but he handles not only that but his sister's romance in stride with Rose's help.
    She becomes a great friend of his sister, and helps her by teaching her that a title doesn't mean that much it's the real man that counts--a lesson she herself needs to really learn! SO there is some very real irony in this story.
    This writer really gets your interest right away and even with my "mental distance" from the Rose character, I loved this book and couldn't put it down.
