Rose Trelawney

3.5  ·  Rating details ·  80 Ratings  ·  5 Reviews
Sir Ludwig called her "Rose Trelawney" because she had no memory of who she was. Awaking in a ditch in a snowstorm, "Rose" had eventually found safe haven at Sir Ludwig's home as his sister's governess. But she found herself not unfamiliar with ordering servants about--or the physical desire she felt for Sir Ludwig. Did that make her a married woman or a harlot?

Picture this. It's December and cold. Very, very cold. And snowing, of course. Not just a dusting, but a real honest-to-goodness winter blizzard. A young woman is lying unconscious in a ditch. Slowly, she regains consciousness, but she has no idea where she is or why she is there or, more importantly, who she is. Wait. What's that sinister shadow lurking in the darkness? Right there! Just right there, just peeping around those trees. Why. . . It's . . . No, it can't be! Oh the horror! The shame!

Another sharp witted story by Joan Smith. Subtle romance amid lots of banter, and very amusing secondary characters.

A young woman awakes in a snow filled ditch with no memory of who she is or how she got there. She walks to a small village vicarage for help. After an unsuccessful week trying to figure out who she is, the vicar tired of her managing ways and afraid she will put a strain on the vicarage funds, palms her off on the local Lord. Lord Ludwig hires her to polish his young sister’s French and art, while helping to solve the mystery. I really liked this romance because of the logical way they precede ...more

Very funny!
Original plot.
The stranded woman with a severe case of anmesia is named Rose Trelawney by the eccentric aunt of the hero. Just because she always fancied to know a person with that name.
From that moment on this book is a funny romp with witty dialoge and a bit of suspense.
I could not but laugh out loud at some scenes. The 'great piece of lumber' of a desk really had me in stitches.
