A WHISPER OF ROSEMARY
Genre: Historical Romance
Lady Maris Langumont wants to choose her own husband. When her father takes matters into his own hands, she is dismayed with his choice. Her intended bridegroom has a violent side, and she is grateful that the stranger visiting her home steps forward to protect her when matters get out of hand.
Dirick of Derkland is a second son and has no expectations of ever being able to wed. Without wealth or land, he knows he is not the sort of husband that a father would want for his daughter. After meeting the Lady Maris, he wishes that his station in life was different.
Ms. Gleason's medieval romance is well written, and has a plot that will keep readers enthralled. I give it a thumbs-up for authenticity and for being a story that I will remember for quite some time. SENSUAL. (Aug., 332 pp., $6.99)
