A Rogue for a Lady – Rose Pearson

Are you quite ready?” Amelia Seaworth, first daughter to the Duke of Westbrook, looked at herself in the mirror.

A New Home for the Duke – Rose Pearson

Miss Jenny Edgington looked all about her as the carriage drew level with one of the grandest houses she had ever seen.

A New Beginning – Rose Pearson

Good evening, Miss Taylor.” Miss Emily Taylor, daughter to the Viscount Chesterton, kept her gaze low to the ground, her stomach knotting.

A Lord Undone – Rose Pearson

There were whispers everywhere she went. Eyes giving her sidelong glances. Smirks on the lips of ladies she had only yesterday considered to be acquaintances. Beatrice simply could not explain it.

A Gentleman’s Revenge – Rose Pearson

“Really, Miss Crosby, you must do better.” Miss Sarah Crosby cringed and lowered her head.

A Foolish Wager – Rose Pearson

“Lady Amelia, come down from there at once!” Lady Amelia did nothing but giggle and climb higher, choosing quite firmly to ignore the anxious voice of her governess.

A Family for Christmas – Rose Pearson

A Wager with a Viscount – Rose Pearson

Edmund Richardson, Lord Wollaston, shot a doubtful glance towards his brother. “And how long is your intended visit?” His brother shrugged one shoulder and looked away. “I am not yet quite certain.” The doubts in Edmund’s mind only grew. “If you cannot tell me how long you will be on the continent for, then I […]

A Viscount’s Stolen Fortune – Rose Pearson

“What say you, Lord Foster, another round?” William tried to find some sort of inner strength by which he could answer, but there did not appear to be any available to him. “Capital. It is good that you are game.” He blinked furiously, trying to find the words to say that he did not wish […]

The Hidden Governess – Rose Pearson

“You will wed him.” Lady Albina Waterford lifted her chin and looked directly into her father’s eyes. “I shall not.” Her father’s eyes narrowed. “I will not tolerate such behavior, Albina.

The Companion and the Earl – Rose Pearson

“Have no doubt, Miss Fullerton. This year, we will be successful.” Miss Deborah Fullerton tried to smile but her heart was so heavily weighted that it was a struggle to even attempt to do so. “You do not have the same hope as I, I think.” Lady Havisham turned her head and looked sharply back […]

More than a Companion – Rose Pearson

Did you hear me, Honora?” Miss Honora Gregory lifted her head at once, knowing that her father did not refer to her as ‘Honora’ very often and that he only did so when he was either irritated or angry with her. “I do apologize, father, I was lost in my book,” Honora replied, choosing to […]

C PROLOGUE lara!” The sound of her father’s voice ricocheting through the house sent a shudder through Clara and she flung herself to her feet in an instant.

Whispers of the Heart – Rose Pearson

“My lady.” Miss Ann Whyte looked up from her needlework, smiling briefly as she glanced at the note that the butler held out on a silver tray. “Thank you,” she murmured, looking down at it and realizing that the handwriting was her brother’s.
