Editorial Reviews


"I loved it[...]most of all, for a heroine who is independent and prickly and yet wonderful all at the same time." –Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author

"Subtle wit, wry humor, and some downright hilarious exchanges lighten the darker, more realistic elements of this totally engrossing page-turner that features a pair of most unlikely protagonists, an abundance of nicely developed secondary characters, a well-handled secondary love story, and dashes of deception, mystery, and danger. Readers will be intrigued and happily engaged until the very end." –Library Journal

I've had A LILY AMONG THORNS on my list ever since I read Rose Lerner's debut novel--In for a Penny--more than a year ago. In fact, I actually reread it a couple of weeks ago to see if the character and writing were as lovely as I remembered. They were and it was. So I practically bounced in my seat when I saw the tweet pop up stating that A LILY AMONG THORNS was available on NetGalley. Click, click, click. And I sat down with it that night. Personally, I think this cover is nowhere near as nice as the cover of In for a Penny, which I thought both represented the tone of that novel as well as the "lighter" romance found within. These two look nothing like how I picture Serena and Solomon, particularly as he seems about to eat her nose and, honestly, Solomon would never do that. And even if he did give it a go, Serena would most certainly never let him get that close. Ah, the woes of cover art. On to the tale!

Serena Ravenshaw and Solomon Hathaway have A History. And they don't even know it. Ever since that one fateful night, years ago, when Solomon inadvertently provides Serena with the means to change her life, she's thought of him and wondered. Who was he? Why did he give her that money? Where is he now? And most importantly--does he have any idea what that inexplicable act meant to her? And while Serena has been carving out a new life for herself, Solomon has been quietly watching his fall apart. After the death of his twin brother in the Napoleonic Wars, Solomon can hardly summon the will to go on.

Rose Lerner had me at a title of this book. "Like a lily among the thorns, so is my darling among the maidens." No doubt you've heard this quote at least once in your life. It's from Song of Solomon 2:2 and sets a perfect plot for this love story. Make no mistake; this is one heart pounding, heart wrenching all out heartwarming love story.

Solomon Hathaway's friends from Cambridge thought it was time he lost his virginity, so they brought him to the best whore house in London. Young Solomon dreaded as much as he anticipated this encounter. Once left alone with a young woman who to his keen eye looked almost pathetic, he couldn't go through with it and as he's about to bolt out of the room, he throws to her his whole allowance and heads for the proverbial `hills'!

Seven years later, Solomon is in a need of help recovering stolen earrings that belong to his family, and he's pointed in a direction of Lady Serena, who is known to have been a bed partner of many, but now is an inn owner with a lot of ties to the underworld of London. Solomon needs only one look of her in the dark to realize that in front of him is a beautiful woman and not that pathetic girl from long ago.

Lady Serena made a mistake seven years ago by falling in love with a young footman in her father's house and by trying to run way with him she sealed her fate and took a hold of the rains of her future by becoming a prostitute. On that long ago, but never forgotten night, when a young man showed her compassion by giving her his purse filled with a lot of money, she makes the decision to become her own person, however flawed.

Seven years later, she remembers it all like it happened the day before and her feelings are confusing her. This woman is not a meek person.

Format: Paperback
A Lily Among Thorns is a quirky and charming historical romance. With fantastic characters and intriguing drama, this is a historical romance you don't want to miss.

Years ago, Solomon entered a brothel with friends only to be shocked and frightened by the cold intimacy the establishment represented. He threw his meager funds at the woman's feet and ran for his life, never forgetting the beautiful creature he ran away from. What he did not know was that the woman was able to buy herself a new start with the money Solomon left and able to move into a more respectable position managing the Ravenshaw Inn. On the side, she also locates difficult items which is ultimately what brings Solomon back to her again years later.

Solomon needs help to find a family heirloom...a pair of earring to be precise for his sister's wedding and he has been told Serena is the only woman to help him. Soon enough, he remembers her as the woman he deserted all those years ago, but he's is not the shy, scared boy from many years ago. Beginning the search together for the earrings leads Solomon to discover more about his mysterious Serena. Now he finds himself involved in a ring of spies, threats of treason and more danger than he ever could have imagined. But this time, his developing feelings for Serena have made it clear the last thing Solomon wants to do is run.

Solomon is the perfectly dependable and honest love interest. If you love beta heroes, as I do, this is your guy. He is such a sweetheart who is romantic and kind. But don't let his cool facade fool you because underneath it all is an intelligent, intense individual. He is passionate yet calm. He always seems to know what to do, where he is going and who to trust.
