A Lady Unrivaled - COVER REVEAL - Ladies of the Manor Book 3 - Roseanna M. White

The wait is finally over! The absolutely STUNNING cover for A Lady Unrivaled has been revealed! This is the third book of the Ladies of the Manor series (you can find info for the first two books below). 

About the Ladies of the Manor
The Ladies of the Manor Series take readers back in time to Edwardian England, when automobiles and electric lights were all the rage, but the old way of life still ruling the land. Lords and ladies, maids and valets…and in this case, a dose of danger and mystery to take them all on their journey to love.

"With the momentum and drama of a modern thriller and the charm and intrigue of an Edwardian upper-class romance, White balances hearty helpings of names, ranks, and family history with highly entertaining situations and plenty of humor." 
- Booklist on The Reluctant Duchess Ladies of the Manor - Book Two

I now present you with Lady Ella Myerston, A Lady Unrivaled!


Beautiful! I don't think there is anything else to say, except that I can NOT wait to read Lady Ella's story! That smile! And her eyes! **Swoon**
