Book Description

When frigate Captain Buckingham Kernow-Smith encounters a sprite in a topiary garden going by the name of “Gannymede,” he remembers his Shakespeare. Pulling off her stocking cap, he reveals the character of “Rosalind” from As You Like It, played, in this case, by the appealing Fanny Edwards.

Three years pass. The War over, Buck encounters his Rosalind at a ball, where she has developed into a notable beauty. However, her guardian confides to him that she is dancing on the very edge of propriety. Buck, who has been fighting the French since he was twelve, also finds the ton confining and sympathizes with Fanny/Rosalind’s plight as a properly reared young lady.

Together, they make a dangerous pair, toeing the line of propriety and scandal, indulging in a masquerade in daylight, riding together in a phaeton race, and laying plans for Fanny/Rosalind to play a role in Covent Garden Theater. When they push their fun too far, Fanny faces ruin and the demimonde. Will Buck confide his secrets and overcome his life-long aversion to marriage in time to save his fair Rosalind and live happily ever after? Can there be a happily ever after for someone as headstrong and impetuous as Rosalind?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Regency Romance in the style of Austen and Heyer. Love as it's meant to be written."
--InDtale Magazine
"Another Regency delight from G.G. Vandagriff!"
--Meridian Magazine

"Vandagriff's Regency Austen-esque romance is perfect for any reader who loves a good old-fashioned romance and can enoy the journey of two people learning not to fear love while learning how to have faith in each other." --Deseret News

From the Author

This is the beginning of a new Regency trilogy, however, Rosalind is living with her sister, Elise and her husband, Ruisdell (from the Duke's Undoing). She also has more than a passing acquaintance with Caro and Ned (from Miss Braithwaite's secret). It is a stand alone, however, and the previous books need not be read first.
Also, this is a book suitable for a book club. My editor, Susan Gottfried, made up a list of questions that can be found on my website: ggvandagriff.com/bookclubs/

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Fall in Love! March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Fans of regency romance will fall in love with Fanny, aka Rosalind, from the first scene in Rescuing Rosalind. When Fanny meets Captain Buckingham (Buck), Marquis of Deal, as she playacts the character of Gannymede (As You Like It), readers will know they're in for an adventurous and entertaining story. Unfortunately, Fanny is only seventeen, or in Fanny's words "a great many months older than seventeen," and Captain Buck is only on a short leave before returning to sea.

Fast forward three years... the war is over and Buck has returned. But the last thing he wants to do is languish among the genteel society. After commanding a ship and fighting the French, the frivolous nature of card games and dancing waltzes is far beneath his patience. Until he spots Rosalind--Fanny--at a London ball. Again he is captivated by her, but this time, she is definitely playing the part of a fully capable woman.

Captain Buck has his work cut out for him as he gets to know Fanny, and her penchant for taking on various roles--whichever suit her purpose--in order to shield herself from a troubled childhood.

Characters from Vandagriff's Three Rogues and Their Ladies series also make appearances, creating a nice circle of familiarity and fleshing out more elements of the involved families. Rescuing Rosalind is a fast-paced, delightful and humorous romance not to be missed!

4.0 out of 5 stars REGENCY ROMANCE WITH A TWIST! April 9, 2013
Format:Paperback
RESCUING ROSALIND by G.G. Vandagriff is an interesting Regency Historical Romance. A fast paced tale of love,passion,secrets,scandal,the theater,and a damsel in distress. An interesting story of a sea captain,Captain Buckingham Kernow-Smith (Buck) and his lady actress, Fanny, aka Rosalind. Of course you have a bit of Shakespeare,"As You Like It",and Covent Garden theater,with a headstrong Rosalind and secretive Buck readers can't go wrong with this intriguing Regency. If you enjoy Regency romance with a twist than "Rescuing Rosalind" is a must read! An enjoyable read from its engaging characters to its intriguing plot. Received for an honest review from the author.

I always enjoy the books from Ms. Vandegriff, both her romances and her mysteries. She has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I appreciate the "cleanness" of her books and like to share them with my granddaughters.

5.0 out of 5 stars RESCUING DONE IN STYLE March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a delightful story and fun to read. Rescuing Rosalind is a fast paced, easy to read romance that stays on this side of good and clean sexy. It is wonderful to read a Regency that does not go into explicit sex scenes. Rescuing Rosalind is not about rescuing a damsel in distress as much as it is about rescuing the damsel from herself and the frustration of family regarding her antics. Shy about her beauty and ever finding a husband that shares her disdain for socially acceptable protocols is something that she cannot see ever happening. She is her biggest enemy when it comes to romance. This is a definite read for anyone who enjoys Recency Romances...I doubt anyone will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! March 20, 2013
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this latest read from G.G. Vandagriff. The characters are VERY likable and so fun to read. I liked the fact that you either heard of or saw characters from her other regency books. The story is really sweet, and shows there is someone for everyone. Rosalind was a joy to read. At first I thought "this girl needs to grow up!", But that was definetly part of the evolution of her character. She was fun, witty, and you never really knew what she was up to! As time progressed she did indeed "grow up" but she still had that likable side to her that endures you to her. The captain was equally enjoyable. His roughness you clearly saw but you also saw his soft side which I loved. (Can't resist a bad boy who can be a softy)

This book is one of those books that when you read the last page you just sigh,lay back and smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gg Vandagriff does it again. October 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read many books of the Regency era and enjoyed most of them. Rosalind, however is like a breath of fresh air. This is a story filled with humor, adventure, and of course, love. It tells of a spirited young woman of society---the rules of which threaten to stifle her vibrant spirit. Her reputation and hope for happiness suffer because of the censure of the 'ton'. The meeting of 'Rosalind's' fire and a sea captain produce wonderful steam. Don't misunderstand, our talented author is able to craft an exciting romance and yet keep things clean and above board.

Thank goodness for people like GG Vandagriff! We can lose ourselves in a remarkable story and not be offended by language and explicit scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm Conflicted December 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second novel in Ms. Vandagriff's "Three Rogues and Their Ladies" trilogy. I wont give a summary of the book, as the blurb provided is pretty spot on. Fanny Edwards is a young lady with spirit who feels restricted by the many ridiculous rules of society. She constantly has these "starts" which results in her engaging in behavior that is not quite the accepted thing. More often than not, Fanny is in trouble with her sister Elise, and brother in law, the Duke of Riusdale (the h and H in the first book of the triology "The Duke's Undoing") who are her guardians.

The reader is led to believe that Fanny's need for freedom and her sometimes erratic behavior, stems, in large part, from her unhappy childhood...a childhood that is hinted at, but never fully explained. More details regarding her upbringing at the hands of a mother who was referred to as "crazy" would, IMO, have given me a better understanding of Fanny.

Instead, at times I found her behavior to be silly and her actions selfish, especially when she was very cognizant of the fact that not only could SHE be ruined by her more outrageous conduct, but her entire family could also be negatively affected by it. I was particularly annoyed after one specific incident, where Fanny narrowly escapes ruin. All the possible consequences for her behavior were clearly brought home to her. She knew that had her conduct become common knowledge, her sister Elise, Elise's children, and Sophie (Fanny's younger sister) would have been affected. This all gave Fanny a terrible scare. Nevertheless, this scare no sooner passes than Fanny proceeds to engage in, or attempts to engage in, even more outrageous conduct.

More About the Author

I realize that I am one of those rare people in the world who gets to live a life full of passion, romance, suspense, angst, fulfillment, humor, and mystery. I am a writer. Every day when I sit down at my computer, I enter into a world of my own making. I am in the head of a panoply of characters ranging from a nineteen-year-old Austrian debutante (The Last Waltz) to a raging psychopath (The Arthurian Omen) and four women at once in The Only Way to Paradise. Then there are the feisty heroines of my Regency romances . . .

I am a traditionally published,award-winning, best-selling writer who has recently gone Indie. I enjoy genre-hopping, having published a genealogical mystery series, two women's fiction novels, an historical epic, two suspense novels, five Regency romances, and a couple of non-fiction offerings.

With a BA from Stanford and an MA from George Washington University in International Relations, I somehow stumbled into finance. But, once my husband was through law school, I never wanted to do anything but write and raise kids. Now the kids are gone, but (even better) there are four grandchildren who provide my rewards for finishing a manuscript.

Aside from the grandchildren, my favorite things include: Florence, Italy; snow storms; Oreos; real hot chocolate; sweaters; Sundance Resort; lilacs; and dachshunds.
