England, 1677: Lady Lily Ashcroft is known for being kind to all creatures—even Rose, her flighty and frivolous older sister. But Lily’s sweet nature is put to the test when she unwittingly falls for the man her sister intends to marry. Betraying her own kin is out of the question, but she can’t seem to bury her growing feelings for Lord Randal Nesbitt…
What Lily doesn’t realize is that Rand, a young Oxford linguist, has been harboring a secret admiration for her ever since she was a girl. But Rose is just as beautiful and shares his passion for languages. Now he finds himself caught in a tug of war between two sisters—the one he's expected to wed and the one who holds his heart…

  • Loved it!

    By Charming Rose
    I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book and it was especially interesting with the twist that threatens Lily and Rand's happiness. This is probably my favorite book by Lauren and Devon Royal now. The characters are really well developed in this book.
  • Promises kept?

    By Jps621
    Promises kept? I love this story. Like all of Lauren and Devon's books it is very well written. The descriptions are detailed enough to transport you into the story and the story is complete. I despise books that rush through the endings and wrap up suddenly. This book does a very nice job of following the story to its completion. I received a free preview version of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
  • Another wonderful Chase Family book!

    By Teri Donaldson
    From the first word, I was drawn in to this book. Lily is such a kind and sweet young lady. He love for animals and kindness to others makes her very special. She reminded me of Cinderella and Snow White, the way she could speak to the animals! Rose, Lily's older sister, is determined to find a husband. She falls in love with every handsome man she meets and now has her sights set on Rand, a young Oxford professor, that has known the family for some time. Rose makes Lily promise to not pursue Rand. Unfortunately, they did not let Rand in on the secret. Often, the heart is much more powerful than words or promises. This book has a wonderful plot that includes mystery, romance, matchmaking, family dynamics and much more. I loved it and cannot wait for Rose's story! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
