A classic tale of sensuous secrets and unanticipated passion,from the extraordinary New York Times bestselling author

The toast of the town ...

All London is at Julia Wentworth's feet—and anything she desires is hers for the asking. But the glamorous leading lady guards a shocking secret: a mystery husband whom she does not know, dares not mention ... and cannot love.

For years Damon Savage has been searching for the stranger his parents wed him to without his consent, hoping to legally free himself from matrimony's invisible chains. And he is astonished to discover his "bride" is none other than the exquisite lady he'd hoped to make his mistress! But though his wife by law, Julia will never truly be Damon's—until he conquers her fears, his formidable rivals ... and her proud, passionate, and independent heart.

the lead male was possessive and domineering to the point that it should be considered abuse and the only reason the lead female seems to go along with it is because she is also stubborn and the sex it good.

after he kidnapped her with the intent to "ruin" her and said it wouldn't be rape because he would make her want it, I was totally turned off.read more

Kathy Herrick's mother had left her when she was a little girl and gone off with the gypsies. Thinking that her mother is now dead, Kathy has returned to her childhood home - Rose Cottage - to claim it for her own. I liked this story very much and give it a C+!read more

Rose Cottage is another of Mary Stewart's quiet, easy love stories with a bit of mystery. No high drama here -- not even as much as in, say, Stormy Petrel. I should perhaps call it a mystery rather than a romance, since the romance elements are slow and in the background to the mystery. Mostly, though, it's just a story of the protagonist figuring herself out and coming to terms with the small secrets of families, and of reunions, and coming home.

And, if it matters to anyone else, there's no cousin-marrying here.read more

Reading is always a gentle pleasure when Mary Stewart is involved. Rose Cottage was mystery that moved/unfolded at a perfect pace. Nothing too crazy or disturbing... just a fun read. I found it relaxing during a stressful week. It reinforced my love for this author.

Having recently moved, some old favorite authors came to my attention while moving boxes. My husband kept getting irritated with me when I would get distracted by the books, pulling them out and making stacks of “to be read” books instead of putting the books away. Unfortunately, my desire to read is always greater than my free time so the stacks will quickly get out of control unless I am reminded that I own the books and just have to pull them out when I want to read them. I decided to read Mary Stewart’s Rose Cottage. Mary Stewart has been a favorite for years because I love her Arthurian series but I don’t remember reading anything else by her.The novel is set in England in 1947 (I debated about tagging it as historical but to me historical feels at least 100 years old so I didn’t), right after the end of World War II. I have read numerous books, both fiction and nonfiction, that take place during WWII but this is the first that takes place in post WWII England.The story is a great one about family, community and the mistakes that can greatly impact our lives. I really like the main character, Kathy’s attitude. Instead of whining about the sad events in her life, she just quietly moves forward making the best of things. It reminds me that no matter how tough things are, you can always be happy.The story was a little slower moving than most other books but I actually enjoyed the pace as a change to the normal. It is a quick read and most of the plot revolves around the main characters search for answers about her past but there is some romance woven within the story.

A pleasant read with a slight mystery. I enjoyed the setting of late-forties rural England more, perhaps, than the story itself, but that is not really a criticism. Certainly not as plotty or suspenseful as others of Stewart's, but an afternoon's visit to an appealing time gone by with just enough goings on to keep one going on.
