The Trouble with Roses

The Trouble With Roses: Book 3 – Ballads of the Roses

An unorthodox woman with a restless spirit…

In her youth, Evarette D’Auvrecher was nicknamed the “restless fire” child. Now a woman grown, she retains that fiery nature. Many men seek her hand in marriage. They want her beauty, generous dower and an alliance with her influential family. They expect from her a meek spirit and implicit obedience – the hallmarks of a proper noblewoman – but she hungers for a man who desires her for herself.

Meets a warrior with a sense of inadequacy – and a slightly misplaced sense of humor.

Sir Javain d’Olgeanc is a powerful knight whose strength lies in battle strategy and the leadership of warriors. Then his father falls ill and he is called home to care for and protect hearth, home – and heaven forbid, helpless, defenseless innocents – a task for which he has little training. To make matters worse, he must manage this feat while falling in love with an unconventional beauty and staying one step ahead of a murderer.

Fate brings them together. Sensual attraction binds them. But they might well kill each other before love can claim them.
