A Top 10 iBooks 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?

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 01, 2003 – The final entry in Royal's Restoration-era trilogy (Violet; Lily) features the third Ashcroft sister, Rose, who has set her sights on landing a titled gentleman. To that end, she prevails upon her mother to bring her to court, where she quickly becomes a hit with the courtiers. Whenever Rose's forwardness gets her into trouble, family friend Christopher "Kit" Martyn steps in to help. Kit, an architect, is struggling to complete three daunting commissions for the king; if he does so, he'll win the post of Deputy Surveyor, which could lead to a knighthood. He quickly falls for Rose, but though she's wildly attracted to him as well, she refuses to consider him because he's a commoner. As Rose kisses her way around the royal court, Kit tries to convince her that he's the only man for her. The breezy energy that usually enlivens Royal's books is lacking here, largely because Rose comes off as shallow and unsympathetic. Royal throws in a transparent mystery regarding some accidents on Kit's building projects, but it does little to increase the book's tension. Diehard fans of Royal's books will complete the trilogy, poor word-of-mouth notwithstanding, but this pallid offering is unlikely to impress those new to her work.
