Whether this is your first in the series or you're reading them in order you will not be disappointed with this one. Edward is the second loose canon of the Kingston family. A year or so prior to this story we met sister, Greyland in Under His Protection. Where she is rebellious and wild Edward is secretive and hot headed. There is a connection between all of the siblings but I really enjoyed the relationship between Edward and Greyland. They are two peas in a pod in so many ways but there are t ...more

5 stars

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.


This story has several different peoples POV. These are my favorite type of books to read, simply because you get to see what is happening from all angles.

Under His Guidance picks right up where Under His Protection left off. I was prepared for the wonderful writings of Ms. Von Haegert this time aroun

I tore through this book in less than a day, I loved it so much! I was curious to see how the author would pull off the second book of the White Rose series without it seeming too much like the first, but she did it flawlessly. Edward is a rake with a reputation that he seems to enjoy, so it’s surprising when he finds himself entranced by Morgan – a debutante in need of lessons for her society debut. Morgan wants to escape from the secrets that haunt her and part of that plan involves finding a ...more
This trilogy just keeps getting better. Edward, now the Earl of Wellington, is one of the most joyous trouble makers I've read. He and his good friend Henry, the Earl of Rockafetch, are known as the Devil Duo but Edwards laugh is a truly happy one. I found myself smiling a few times, I even had to hold back a laugh.

Morgan Sinclair Is like Grayland, strong willed, tell it like it is, lady. Although Morgan isn't in your face wild, she does crave life's adventures. Lucky for her Edward is gentleme

Another beautifully written historic romance. Stacy Von Haegert has continued the White Rose Trilogy with wonderfully descriptive passages.

Edward Kingston and his friend Henry enjoy all that being the most sought after bachelors in London provide; indulgence in sport, wine and woman. Edward is the brother of Greyland, featured in the first book in this series, Under His Protection.

The mystery and vengeful actions continue against him and his family. Morgan Sinclair the new debutante, has a few

The second book in the white rose trilogy, dare I say this is even better than under his protection? I honestly didn't think Edwards story could be better than Alexanders and Greyland but I concede.
He's the dashingly handsome Duke of York, with rugged good looks that has all the women lusting after him and a temper you don't want to see.
Morgan is the debutant who is hoping to snag a husband as soon as possible for her own reasons.
This is a must read, hot sexy males, beautiful maidens in distress

I wanted to give this book 4 stars, based on how hard I cried when it broke my heart...but, I figured that just meant I was so lost in it that I felt it in reality. While I loved Alex and Grey, I adore Edward. I loved him more than Perkin, anyway. I knew he held something powerful inside, and beautiful Morgan brought it right out. Perfectly written! I can't wait for book 3! Perkin won't boot Edward as my favorite, but I'm sure he'll be a great contender. I'll see who wins at ...more

Loved Edward and Morgan's story, the plot thickens, you see how the author incorporates the characters from book one and each has a major or minor role to play. Well written, Edward has to face demons from his past and keep secrets in order to keep his family safe, Morgan is trying to get away from her abusive step father and step brother. Through it all it's Morgans love that draws Edward out. Must read series, now on to the next ...more

Book two

Another fantastic story in the trilogy, more treachery, more romance, couldn't put this one down either, this time it's Edward's story, I thought I loved Alex, but I think Edward has overtaken him, he has his demons to fight but Morgan is there to anchor him. Now on to book three and Perkin's story, I have a feeling my loyalties are going to shift again or can I share.
Mindy Martinez Borda
The author does it again. It is impossible to stop reading this story. The plot thickens and things get worse for the Kingstons. The main characters are a breath of fresh air in a very difficult and dark family history. You'll have hilarious moments mixed with very dark ones. A great continuation of the series and an amazing starting point for the end! ...more

Great story

I really liked this historical romance. I found the characters easy to follow and even the time line. There are disputes they dull or fight but that's that time but the love stories......

I read the first book under his protection and I practically had no words to describe how absolutely wonderful this book was or I should say this book is the author is new to me but not any longer she’s up on the top of my list as a phenomenal writer I will buy everyone of her books that comes out she is so good at writing. I just finished reading book 2 in the white rose trilogy under his guidance and it’s the story of Edward and Morgan again I am a little lost for words I thoroughly enjoyed

Amazing second book in a trilogy. Edward and Morgan’s story was amazing. I found myself so emotional reading the book. I was ready to crawl through the book and strangle Morgan’s Step-dad and step-brother. I felt sympathy and sadly real life connection with Morgan’s mom. Both Edward and Morgan’s characters sent me through more emotions than I thought possible. Stacey Von Haegert is a master storyteller. I would confidently buy anything she writes in the future.

UPDATE 2021: The author has also reworked this book with added scenes/convos which has made it even more enjoyable to read. I love the added witty remarks and after all this time, I still teared up. (Sorry, no spoilers. Those who have read this book know the scene I'm talking about)
Plain and simple....I want a love story like Morgan and Edward.
