Rosalyn's Ring by USAT Bestseller @AlinaKField is a Christmas in July Fete pick #regency #giveaway

Title: Rosalyn’s Ring

Author: Alina K. Field

Genre: Regency Romance

Book Blurb:

Done with grieving her losses, a late nobleman’s daughter has fallen into a tidy spinster’s life in London. But when one snowy Christmas Eve, a young woman needs rescue, she seizes the chance to do good—and to recover a family heirloom that ought to be hers.

Irked by his late father’s dreams of nobility, a newly anointed viscount has drawn the line at marrying a blue-blooded miss—until he meets a provoking beauty with an upper crust manner, a larcenous streak, and enough secrets to rouse even his jaded heart.

And when more mysteries swirl around the lady’s lost inheritance, he is just the right man to help her uncover the truth.


Rosalyn discovered a high-necked, severe, black gown that her mother must have had made for the occasion of some relative’s funeral and a lovely green silk. She’d thought to give Mindy the black gown and wear the other herself. In the end, she admitted, it was to her benefit to look somber and dull.

She and Mrs. Sullivan had helped Mindy into the green gown, and it was good fun, much like when, as a child, she’d dressed her dolls. She couldn’t begrudge the girl; though the style was out of date, Mindy looked exquisite. The dress brought out the color of her eyes and complemented the blond curls at her forehead and neck. A housemaid who’d returned early had dressed Mindy’s hair, giving her the look of an elegant, happy newlywed.

Throughout dinner, Logan couldn’t tear his eyes from the girl.

Even Cathmore took notice. “Mrs. Logan,” he said, “you look lovely tonight, very festive. I hope my staff has made you feel welcome.”

“Oh yes,” Mindy said. “Mrs. Sullivan picked out the dress for me. She said I can keep it.”

Cathmore raised his eyebrows at Rosalyn. “Miss Crompton, you’re wearing black again. Are you in mourning?”

Suspicion niggled at her. He hadn’t used her real name—he was toying more with her, the despicable man, and she must be careful. “I am. And black is practical for traveling.” And she would be traveling as soon as this blasted dinner was over. Hunting out clothes and accessories for Mindy had allowed her time and resources to assemble warm clothing, food and other necessities.

She’d even made a furtive foray to the stables and reunited with old Joseph. The poor dear didn’t hear well, and probably he hadn’t truly recognized her, but he took her along to see Clarence, the mule she remembered from her childhood. With the bare-bones staff celebrating Christmas, it would be easy enough to saddle Clarence and pick her way through the snow to one of the shelters. She’d see that someone at the coaching inn returned him.

“Are you traveling tonight, Miss Crompton?” Cathmore asked.

Heat rose in her. She pursed her lips, struggling for an answer that wasn’t an outright lie. “I have grown comfortable with black. I’ve only just recently come out of mourning for a close family member.” She inclined her head in a queenly gesture. He couldn’t very well make a joke out of that.

But he surprised her again and smiled, the blackguard. “I don’t know whether to believe you, Miss Crompton.”

She clamped her hands in her lap, yearning to slap him. Dark locks brushed his forehead over eyes glowing with mischief as he lounged back, assessing her. Heat flamed within her, his gaze stirring that infernal pooling between her legs.

“What is unaccountable,” Cathmore said, glancing between her and Mindy, “is the similarity of your eyes, ladies. Both of you have eyes the identical shade of a most unusual green. It puts me in mind of a seaside visit to Italy.”

“I’m told I have my father’s eyes,” Mindy said.

She turned sharply and studied the girl. Mindy’s face bore no signs of slyness, or intrigue, or deceit.

“Who was your father?” Cathmore asked her.

A chill passed through Rosalyn, the air rippling like a ghost had come to stand next to her.

Author Biography:

Award-winning and USA Today best-selling author Alina K. Field earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and German literature, but prefers the much happier world of romance fiction. Though her roots are in the Midwestern U.S., after six very, very, very cold years in Chicago, she moved to Southern California and hasn’t looked back. She shares a midcentury home with her husband and her spunky, blonde, rescued terrier.

She is the author of several Regency romances, including the 2014 Book Buyer’s Best winner, Rosalyn’s Ring. She is hard at work on her next series of Regency romances, but loves to hear from readers!
