Praise for Sweet Disorder
"I loved everything about Sweet Disorder: the freshness of the politically oriented plot, the clear-eyed affection with which Lerner sketches a vibrant small-town Regency community, and most of all, the steamy, deeply-felt romance between two wary people who have everything to lose by falling in love." —Cecilia Grant, author of A Lady Awakened
Praise for A Lily Among Thorns
"I loved it, even more than I loved In for a Penny[...]most of
all, for a heroine who is independent and prickly and yet wonderful
all at the same time." —Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author
Praise for In for a Penny
"Georgette Heyer watch out! With believable characters and a keen eye for period detail, Rose Lerner serves up a sprightly and splendid take on the classic marriage of convenience plot. Not to be missed by fans of the Regency romance." —Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author.
"[A] charming and original Regency that will make you wish a man like
Nev would stroll through your front door." —Eloisa James for Barnes &

TRUE PRETENSES. Through wit and sheer force of will, Ash Cohen has raised himself and his little brother Rafe out of the London slums and made them (in his unbiased opinion) the best two-man con artist team in England. He’s heartbroken to learn Rafe wants out of the life, but determined to give his brother what he wants. When he hears that the head of the Tory Party in Lively St. Lemeston has just died, leaving his daughter Lydia with a mound of debts and a thoroughly held-in-trust dowry, Ash has a brilliant idea: he’ll set up a marriage between Rafe and Lydia, promising Lydia that in exchange for a percentage of her fortune, she’ll have her money, complete freedom, and never have to deal with her husband again.
Now all he has to do is get Lydia and Rafe to fall in love before the wedding. It seems simple enough: a clever, lonely woman and a charming English country town at Christmastime. What more could Rafe want from life? But when a terrible family secret comes to light, Rafe disappears and Lydia demands that Ash marry her instead. Did Ash chose the perfect wife for his brother…or for himself?
