She’s out to steal his name. Will he steal her heart instead?
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they are no longer pickpockets—now they focus on high value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. Rosemary’s challenge of a lifetime comes when she’s assigned to determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany. How does one steal a family’s history, their very name?
Rumors swirl around Peter Holstein. Awkward and solitary, but with access to the king, many fear his influence. But Peter can’t help his German last name and wants to prove his loyalty to the crown—so he can go back to anonymously writing a series of popular adventure novels. When Rosemary arrives on his doorstop pretending to be a well- credentialed historian, Peter believes she’s the right person to help him dig through his family’s past.
Anger and danger continue to mount, though, and both realize they’re in a race against time to discover the truth—about Peter’s past and about the undeniable attraction kindling between them.
My opinion: When it comes to Christian historical fiction Roseanna White is one of the best out there and this book did not disappoint! The cover alone is enough to draw one in but the content is even better! I love the painstaking research that is put into this book, it was a fascinating time during England's history and this book brings it all vividly to life.
I loved the character of Rosemary, feisty and spunky she sparkles with life and it is wonderful watching her character grow and develop. I loved Peter's character, he is so loving and amazing, the perfect gentleman!
This book is a great read and keeps you engaged until the very end!
