Romance Historical

Family secrets, an unlikely alliance—and a love neither expected...

After his parents' sudden death, Daniel Frith, Viscount Whitfield, is struggling to unravel a web of chaotic family records. He is astonished to learn his father's will contains a mysterious legacy: a house left to a complete stranger. He knows nothing about the beautiful Penelope Pendleton and he's not sure he wants to...until she turns out to be a whiz at all those nasty tasks involved in estate administration...

Penelope has no idea why Rose Cottage was left to her. But it's a godsend after her brother's reckless actions disgraced her family. She had planned to stay out of Viscount Whitfield's way, not grow ever closer to him. But when they discover how entwined their families really are, Daniel and Penelope must collaborate to avoid a scandal that reaches much higher than they could have guessed...

Re: A Lord Apart

Family histories can be fascinating. I am so lucky it became a
passion of one of my brothers. He has done extensive research and
is even teaching classes. Too bad I don't live closely enough to
attend them. He has discovered our roots go back to the original
french settlers in Canada. There were women dowered by the king
sent over to marry and help establish permanent settlements to
counter English encroachment. These women were called the
King's Daughters (filles du roi). There were about 800 of them sent
over from 1663 and 1673. There are 20 of these women in the
different branches of our family tree on both sides of the family. On
my father's side, There is an Irish family which came to Canada
during the Potato Famine. Parts of both sides of the family
eventually settled in Northern New York. My brother keeps
unearthing interesting details and stories of our ancestors.

I absolutely love Historical Romance's! I look forward to
reading A Lord Apart! Thank you for the chance!
Angela Sanford 5:15am March 27, 2019)

sounds like a book I would really enjoy reading
Vickie Couturier 8:46am March 27, 2019)

Sounds like a great story and the cover is beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win. Best of luck with it!
Nancy Reynolds 9:52am March 27, 2019)

Please include me in your contest. The story of Daniel and Penelope
sounds like it might take a lot of twists and turns. I would love to read it.
Thank You!

I have dug into my family history - found out I have Dutch
ancestors! Love watching the genealogy shows on tv too - very
interesting what & how they find out things.
Diane Sallans 12:36pm March 27, 2019)

The very first book that made me fall in love with reading
was a historical romance! I love history which made me
curious about my own. I eventually found out that I am
related to Napoleon Bonaparte and I have the Micmac tribe in
my ancestry as well. It is very interesting to learn about
where we come from.
Candy Voisine 10:17pm March 27, 2019)

Sounds like aninteresting book.

Thanks so much for the chance and I have been thinking of
signing up to one but i was born in a foster home and not
sure i want to know their history nor my abusive foster
parent so as I say Let a sleeping dog lie in this case.
If i came from a normal background i would do it in a
Peggy Clayton 12:17pm March 28, 2019)

Love the cover
Susan Jang 1:25am March 28, 2019)

I have actively researched genealogy for myself and others for
more than 20 years. With each discovery, I feel I have solved a

Because family history is my passion, any book that deals with
this topic is a must-read for me, especially novels written by
Jane Ashford. For these reasons, I am looking forward to reading
A Lord Apart!

Last year I was able to visit the hometown of my grandparents
in Northern Italy. I have been doing genealogy for years and
want to pass this history to my children.
Leona Olson 11:05am March 28, 2019)

I enjoyed the information about your family history. Genealogy is fascinating. You never know who will show up in the family tree and it's amazing how many people in a community are related, maybe distantly, but there is a family connection.
Anna Speed 11:48am March 28, 2019)

Family histories can be fascinating, wish i ask my
Grandparent about your family and past.
Emily Stemp 9:58pm March 28, 2019)

I've enjoyed working on my and my husband's genealogies in the
past, but it's been a number of years since I've done anything
with it.
Janie McGaugh 11:48pm March 28, 2019)

I'm able to trace my family history back several centuries
Denise Holcomb 1:40am March 29, 2019)

I've never researched my family history. While I'd like to know the
information I don't think I'd want to do any of the research myself.
Jana B 8:38pm March 29, 2019)

I love historicals and my sister has done a lot of research
on our family and has found many interesting tidbits
Julie Parrish 5:53pm March 30, 2019)

I love historicals. I've never really done much research
on my family.
Jaime Minter 11:43am March 31, 2019)

I enjoy the historical romances. I too do genealogy and
have 5 big family trees going. My hubby's mother side goes
back to the founders of Rowley, Mass. But there are many
sad stories too. And when I read historical romances I
sometimes learn more of what our ancestors lived through.So
thank you for this opportunity.
Nancy Luebke 3:38pm March 31, 2019)

Sounds interesting and has a pretty cover.
Melanie Rosen 10:02pm March 31, 2019)

Haven't dug into my family history, that's why I read about
other peoples family history. Loved the description of the
book and looking forward to reading it.
