She's Out to Steal His Name. Will He Steal Her Heart Instead?
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins who helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they are no longer pickpockets--instead they focus on high value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. Rosemary is beginning to question whether she can continue in this life when she's offered the challenge of a lifetime--determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany. After all how does one steal a family's history, their very name?
As Europe moves ever closer to World War I, 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 doorstep pretending to be a well-credentialed historian, Peter believes she's the right person to help him dig through his family's past.
When danger and suspicion continue to mount, 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.

This book was amazing! It was right up this book lover’s expectations! Who couldn’t love a book that has an amazing cover like this one? And the mystery behind the models look? Ahhh! It draws you in immediately!!
Rosemary is quite the character. She is a talented thief and orphan living on the streets of London. She has a ‘family of orphans’ that live with her. Peter is a delightful character. He has a secret. Peter has lived a hermit’s life but that changes when Rosemary comes to work for him. I loved both of these characters. I loved how their characters came to life as the story unfolded, especially, Rosemary’s. Her life is transformed as she works and lives under Peters care. She finds God in the midst of love. Peter sees a new life in himself.
This is one story you do not want to miss! Roseanna White strikes gold with this story!
