Dear Reader,
Like the rose in the haunting tale of "Beauty and the Beast," a silver rose on a charm bracelet brings together a beautiful young woman and a battle-scarred lord....

In my story, Ariel Ravenspeare has been taught to loathe the earl of Hawkesmoor and everything he represents.  Their two families have been sworn enemies for generations.  But it's one thing to hate him, and another to play the part her vicious brothers have written for her--trapping Hawkesmoor into a marriage that will destroy him, using herself as bait.  Forced into the marriage, Ariel will find her new husband unexpectedly difficult to manipulate, as well as surprisingly--and powerfully--attractive.

But beneath the passion lurk the strands of a long-hidden secret...a secret embodied in a sparkling silver rose.

I hope you will be as caught up in Ariel and Hawkesmoor's love story as I was.

Warmest wishes,

Jane Feather

An interesting story set in a less-popular era for romance -- Restoration England. When authors choose a pre-regency era, they often feel free to put in more violence, and if I have a gripe with this book, it's that there are some extremely violent passages. Also, the heroine, who seems to be able to withstand hurricanes, when it's necessary for the plot, develops a terrible fever, and it's declared that she has had weak lungs all her life and might die. But she's better in a day, so it's okay. Bleh, fake drama. Also, we don't get a strong enough glimpse at the HEA. The climax happens, and it's understood that things are worked out. -cgread more
