Haro Emison, thrust into his new role as Earl of Anglesford, discovers that his late father has left the family teetering on the edge of financial ruin. Intent on rescuing the estate, Haro abandons his long-held interest in his cousin Eda and searches instead for a wealthy heiress. But when pride and jealousy cause his plan to spiral out of control, he begins to wonder if he has made a dreadful mistake….

Eda Swanycke is enjoying her first season in London when her debut comes to a crashing halt. Jilted by her cousin, she suffers the indignity of watching Haro’s new intended lay claim to his person and position. But when a brutal murder upends the household with Haro as chief suspect, Eda must put her wounded pride aside, match wits with the investigator from London, and try, at all costs, to save Haro Emison’s neck from the gallows….

  1. I learned that its not just a romance, but a mystery too.

  2. First, I really liked the quote at the top of the page. After that, I'm sorry to say things kinda went downhill. The page was not up to date. There was a survey, but it ended May 14. There was also a link to a Goodreads giveaway. It, too was done. I know she is busy (because she said so) but if you are going to put things that have ending dates, you really need to update the blog to let people know they are finished, and if possible, the results too.

  3. I liked the castle's, the one at the top and the one for the writers group.

  4. I learned that Rosanne Lortz finds writing regencies easier than medieval fiction. Interesting that the latter takes more time to write than the former.

  5. I learned that you can get your kindle copy signed.

  6. I learned that the book encompasses two of my favorite genres: mystery and romance.

  7. I learned, that she writes medieval mysteries too. I love all historical mystery stories.

  8. I learnt it was a regency novel (well thought more or less this before) and that were a Goodreads giveaway that I have must missed.

  9. I learned that there is also a Goodreads giveaway on her page so you have two chances to win.

  10. The author used to be a high school teacher.

  11. She has an ongoing series of books on the Crusades.
