For me, this book is definitely a keeper, and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a good historical romance-mystery.

Lizzie and Gervase were excellent secondary characters and complemented the story line very nicely.

When Rose Golightly travels with her family to Hareton Abbey in a remote part of Yorkshire, she expects to witness the betrothal of her cousin. What she gets is something completely different. Within twenty-four hours of her arrival, her cousin is dead, her brother has been named the sixth Earl of Hareton, and Rose has fallen completely and inappropriately in love.

Rose is the older daughter and is considered somewhat off-the-shelf at the advanced age of twenty-five. She has lived perpetually in the shadow of her beautiful younger sister and has been content overall with her life. When she meets Richard Kerre, Lord Strang, she knows she's beneath his notice. The man is the picture of society, dressed and painted to the highest fashion and with a reputation for playing hard and fast. Rose is at first suspicious when Richard professes to have fallen for her at first sight, but he is apparently quite genuine in his feelings. There is one problem, however: Richard is already engaged to be married.

As Richard tries to determine who murdered the old Earl and therefore clear Rose's brother of any suspicion of wrongdoing, he also works to extricate himself from his commitment to another woman. Reputations and futures are at stake. If he breaks his marriage contract, it will not only ruin him financially but will also cause a scandal of epic proportions. Regardless of their feelings, Richard and Rose may be forced to turn away from a love that could only come once in a lifetime.


"Yorkshire" is the first book in Lynne Connolly's Richard and Rose series. Set in the England of the mid-1700s, this novel will appeal to lovers of historical romance as well as to mystery buffs.

I wasn't sure what to expect - it was a free download for my ipod touch (kindle app). I found it to be a sweet story. I will actually pay to get book 2 in the series when it comes out. Sweet, suspenseful romance - the male hero is a little too much but many authors are getting into this over the top alpha.

Format: Paperback
Sensible, shy, overlooked Rose Golightly never expected to realize that she had met the man of her dreams while he was lying half dead on the side of the road in her arms. However, the man, whose head lay on her lap as she tried to stop the bleeding from his wound, was lucky. He would live. The destroyed coach had been carrying 3 peers of the realm, and 2 perished in the accident.

However, was it an accident, or murder? How did this start....

Rose and her family have traveled to attend the marriage of her cousin, The Honourable Edward Golightly, to the only daughter of the Earl of Hareton. Shocked at the condition of the once renowned show house of the county, Rose, her brother James, who was third in line for the Earl title, and their sister Lizzy all stood outside of the former glorious mansion. Whatever could have happened? While standing staring at the horror in front of them, another coach pulled up discharging two handsome men and a lady who joined them in staring at the disaster in front of them. The newest arrivals were Lord Strang, his twin brother Gervase, and Miss Cartwright, Lord Strang's affianced bride.

On their first morning the Earl and his son were killed in a carriage accident, leaving Rose the sister of an Earl. However it quickly became known that the "carriage accident" was not an accident. The bindings had been cut, and the carriage was deliberately crashed in hopes of killing the occupants. Lord Strang survived the terrible accident, but only barely, thanks to Rose's care of him. If Rose had not been present, Lord Strang would have bled to death. When she had held him in her arms she had felt overcome with a deep feeling of caring and passion for the man lying in her arms.

Who wanted to kill the Earl and his heir?

by Susan Tam
Rose Golightly is traveling with her family to Hareton Abbey for the wedding of her cousin, Edward Golightly, to the daughter of the Earl of Southwood. Edward's brother is the Earl of Hareton. Hareton Abbey is a neglected estate and it is falling apart. The Earl of Hareton wishes to break the entailment of the earldom's properties, since he wants to give it to his minister. He no longer wishes to be known as an Earl but as a regular gentleman. Rose meets the Earl of Southwood's family, his daughter and twin sons. Gervase Kerre has just returned from exile and Richard Kerre (Lord Strang) is with his fiancée, Julia. The Earl of Southwood refuses to allow his daughter to marry Edward when he sees the disrepair of the estate, not to mention the lack of social standing if the Earl of Hareton renounces his title. The next day, the Earl of Hareton, Edward and Lord Strang leaves to get the minister and there is a carriage accident. The Earl is killed instantly and Edward succumbs to his injuries. Lord Strang is injured but recovers. Rose's brother, James, becomes the new Earl of Hareton. Rose finds the cut strap to the carriage. She and Richard set out to find the culprit. Rose is attracted to Richard and, to her surprise, he returns her feelings. Of course, there are problems ahead as Richard has signed the marriage contract to Julia!!!
This was a delightful book!!! Rose is correctly named as she literally blooms as the novel progresses. She is a wonderful heroine. She is intelligent, understated and strong. Her interaction with Richard is quite lovely to watch as their relationship slowly simmers and then comes to a boil. Richard is a fascinating character as there is so much more to him than the outward façade that is presented.
