Great news for historical romance fans!

I’m a huge, HUGE historical romance fan, but I hardly have time to read it anymore so there are only a few authors whose books I make time for. Rose Lerner is number one.

So here’s some great news. Her novel A Lily Among Thorns is being re-released today with a gorgeous new cover, and she’s doing a Lily-themed giveaway with some of the most incredible prizes I’ve seen!

A Lily Among ThornsA Lily Among Thorns

Honesty can be the deadliest policy of all.

Lady Serena Ravenshaw is one of London’s most prosperous women, but she’s never forgotten the misery that set her on the path to success. Nor has she forgotten the drunken young gentleman who gave her the means to start her long, tortuous climb out of the gutter.

When he knocks on the door of the Ravenshaw Arms to ask her help in retrieving a stolen family heirloom, she readily agrees to help, and to let him stay rent-free. After all, Serena prefers debts to fall in her favor.

Still grieving the death of his twin brother, Solomon Hathaway just wanted to be left alone in his dye-making shop—until his highborn uncle sends him to the infamous Lady Serena to scour London’s underworld for the missing bauble.

He’s shocked to discover she’s the same bedraggled waif to whom he once gave his entire quarterly allowance. Yet as they delicately tread common ground, they must negotiate a treacherous world of crime, espionage and betrayal before they can learn to trust—and love—again.

Originally published Dorchester 2011.

Warning: Contains toasty warm pastries, scorching hot chemistry, and a web of treason that just might see England in flames.

Way back in 2011, I wrote a review of A Lily Among Thorns at The Season for Romance. You can read the full review here, but here’s the gist: I highlighted so many passages that made me smile or made my heart clench. Rose Lerner is masterful at bringing out the details that make characters human, in a way that reminds me of Judith Ivory and Meredith Duran.

So, if either of those two authors is on your list of favorites, pick up a copy of one of Rose’s books. (She also has a new series out this year. I read book one, Sweet Disorder, this summer and CAN NOT WAIT to read book two.)

To make it easier for you, I’ve put her books into this handy widget. Seriously, this is how much I love them. They’re smart, well-crafted and beautifully written.

Happy re-release day, Rose!
