“The Gentleman’s Scandalous Bride” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Rose” by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

England, 1677: The last of three sisters to marry, Lady Rose Ashcroft is determined to land a wealthy, titled husband—a marquess perhaps, or even a duke. Having had her heart broken in the past, she's decided the key to enticing a man lies in hiding her intelligence and academic interests while flaunting her more feminine qualities. Matchmaking mother in tow and strategy firmly in place, Rose heads off to Charles II's court to find love...

And runs smack dab into Christopher "Kit" Martyn, the one man who could ruin all her plans. Kit is a dashing, successful commoner with his sights set on landing the post of official Royal Architect—and he's the only man Rose feels she can honestly talk to about anything. Kit knows the true Rose, and he wants her, but she thinks of him as a family friend. Can he convince her that a title is unimportant compared to the love he knows they're destined to share?

    As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline, the descriptive view of the scenery and the attire wore. It almost makes you wish you could have lived during that time period.
  • A Sweet Historical

    By Eileen A-W
    I enjoyed reading The Gentleman's Scandalous Bride (The Chase Brides Book 7) by Lauren Royal and Devon Royal is a sweeter and cleaner version of the book Rose written by Lauren Royal. This story gave me a view of the 1677 England, when Charles II was ruling over the country. This is the reason I enjoy reading historical romances; I get an insight into the history books I grew up loving to study and read, yet having a love story written alongside. I enjoyed getting to know Rose’s family and loved that given the historical times the freedoms her family gave to their daughters. I also liked reading about the social life around the royal court with the titled and all of the shenanigans that occurred at those events. I highly recommend this fun and entertaining book to all readers. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers and can’t wait to see if there will be another book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
