A Name Unknown (Bethany House, July 2017)
She’s out to steal his name. Will he steal her heart instead?
Rosemary Gresham has no family beyond the band of former urchins that helped her survive as a girl in the mean streets of London. Grown now, they are no longer pickpockets—now they focus on high value items and have learned how to blend into upper-class society. Rosemary’s challenge of a lifetime comes when she’s assigned to determine whether a certain wealthy gentleman is loyal to Britain or to Germany. How does one steal a family’s history, their very name?
Rumors swirl around Peter Holstein. Awkward and solitary, but with access to the king, many fear his influence. But Peter can’t help his German last name and wants to prove his loyalty to the crown—so he can go back to anonymously writing a series of popular adventure novels. When Rosemary arrives on his doorstop pretending to be a well- credentialed historian, Peter believes she’s the right person to help him dig through his family’s past.
Anger and danger continue to mount, though, and both realize they’re in a race against time to discover the truth—about Peter’s past and about the undeniable attraction kindling between them.

My Thoughts:
Wow! This book is a unique tale of a woman from London who isn't your typical lady. Rosemary is tough and make no mistake, she will survive, despite her brokenness. Enter into the picture, Peter. A gentleman, who is adorable, nerdy and has a bit of a stuttering problem, which Rosemary is able to look past. Why? Because she is "hired" to steal information about him. You'll love the twists and turns this book takes. The historical aspects are wonderful and the pages turn, especially when elements of faith come into play. Will a romance develop and will Rosemary end up stealing his heart rather than his family history? Grab this winner and settle in for an engaging read of wit, mystery and lovable characters that will be absolute delight! And don't worry when this book is over, you'll be wondering when the next book comes out in this series! Thank you to the publisher for providing a complementary copy. I give this book 5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required.

{MORE ABOUT ROSEANNA M. WHITE}

Roseanna M. White pens her novels beneath her Betsy Ross flag, with her Jane Austen action figure watching over her. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two children, editing and designing, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of over a dozen historical novels and novellas, ranging from biblical fiction to American-set romances to her British series. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to make their way into her novels . . . to offset her real life, which is blessedly boring. She passes said boring life with her husband and kids in the beautiful mountains of eastern West Virginia.
