Ridgeway, California: A fictional, mixed race settlement founded by abolitionists in 1853, after the madness of the California gold rush died down. Located near present-day Oakland, California, the town is home to a little less than 500 citizens. In Ridgeway, everybody knows everybody else- which can be a good thing- or a bad thing.

The Roses of Ridgeway: The feisty, determined female citizens of the settlement. They are intelligent, loving, and know their own minds- but they are far from perfect.

Please Note: The Roses of Ridgeway series books are SWEET in nature. There is no offensive content that would limit these books solely to mature adult readers. Expect some brief foul language, and light violence, and affectionate moments. However, sexual relations take place behind closed doors and are not portrayed on the page. Therefore, these books are appropriate for readers of all ages, from young, to mature, to young at heart.

A Woman Who Knows Her Own Mind

Prudence Emerson doesn't have time for romantic entanglements. She's taken a job at the mercantile, and is saving money to attend school at Oberlin. That is, until the Reverend Derrick Chase rides into town to start a new church. Her good friend Lilly Warren invites her to a service at Enduring Faith Moravian church, and the die is cast. She can't deny her attraction to him, and the handsome mulatto preacher obviously returns the feelings. Should she change her plans to explore a relationship with him? Or will being the preacher's paramour lead to nothing but pain?

A Man of The Cloth- With A Past

Reverend Derrick Chase, a Moravian pastor, is newly settled in Ridgeway, over 3,000 miles away from where he grew up in North Carolina. He came to California hoping to put distance between himself, and a dark past he has no desire to revisit. But the tall, beautiful Prudence Emerson gets his heart pounding every time she's near. She's an honorable woman, and he won't soil her reputation. But another thing he won't do is let her slip through his fingers. Can he love her without drawing her into the dangerous web of his secret past?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Prudent Courtship March 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Derrick and Prudence embarked on a relationship that can be summed up as prudent and sweet. They worked well together as they respected each other's boundaries. Prudence's parents' love for each other was a great inspiration for her relationship with Derrick. If you like sweet romances that are free of unnecessary drama, then I highly recommend this and the novellas int he Ridgeway Series.

If you want a vulgar-free love story, this is a wonderful book. More authors need to follow suit, in writing style.

The book held my attention immediately. Prudence is a intense young woman who is determined to be independent. It reminds us of a time when chastity was important.
