A Winter’s Rose is a new, never-before published book–the second of a new series by New York Times Bestselling author Tanya Anne Crosby.
Realizing it’s only a matter of time before her “witchy” mother weds her to a feckless minion of King Stephen’s, Rosalynde Pendragon takes matters into her own hands, stealing her mother’s grimoire and casting a reverse glamour spell to turn herself into a matron. Alas, the spell is only temporary, revealing her true self by night, so to conceal the truth, she steals a habit and wimple and pretends to be a nun escaping her loveless fate on the eve before taking her vows.
William FitzGilbert of Warkworth arrives in London, hoping to convince Stephen to award him the adulterine castle his father built. The price to be paid is a marriage with Morwen Pendragon’s reclusive but beautiful daughter, Seren—reputed to be the loveliest woman in all of Wales. However, the nuptials must still be arranged, and Will is sent home to await his bride. But fate has its own wayward plans, and when he discovers himself a reluctant champion to a runaway nun, he hasn’t any clue the lady he’s escorting to sanctuary is the youngest sister of the woman he’s intended to wed.
Plain and unattractive, there’s nevertheless something beautiful about Rose that speaks to Will’s heart. Is he willing now to abandon his legacy in the name of love?
