Publisher's Summary

Morgan Hayes grows up in the 20th century with a mysterious attraction to a hollow suit of armor that stands in the window of her mother’s antique store. She is 24 years old when she becomes entangled within the armor’s metal plates and is whisked back in time, where she is mistaken for a twin sister she knows nothing about. Morgan is forced to marry King Henry’s favored knight, Derek Vanguard, Lord of Braddock Hall.
Abandoned by his mother and having failed as a child to gain his father’s love, Derek’s heart is as cold as the stone walls of his castle. In the end, will Morgan discover the true power of love?


What the Critics Say

"The ending was so well written it gave me chills, and I purposely read it slowly because I didn't want the story to end. I hope there's a sequel in the not too distant future." (Caroline Fyffe, award-winning author of Where the Wind Blows and Montana Dawn)

I really enjoyed this time travel romance about twins Morgana and Amanda born in Medieval Britain, Morgana was sent to the future as a sick babe to hopefully find a cure for her. Then, when she is 24, she's sent back in time and meets Lord Derek Vanguard and is mistakenly understood to be Amanda, her twin sister who is betrothed to Derek by the King but who had escaped.

It was a funny enjoyable romantic tale about Knights and castles and dreams coming true, no it wasn't 'historically acurate' but I don't think it was supposed to be, so don't look too deeply into this book - it's pure escapism and it's an easy listening fun romp through time.

I thought the narrator did a great job and didn't speak too fast for me but if you're concerned then sample her voice first..

Worth my credit? Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

So fun and romantic

What did you love best about Return of the Rose?

The storyline. That was what made me buy the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Return of the Rose?

When she meets Robert or Robin Hood as she is calling him for the first time (Her twin sisters lover) and every time she is trying to explain how she is. And when she have to apologize for something her sister have done.

Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

Morgan. She is funny.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. And i did just that.

Any additional comments?

This book is one of my favorites. I love the storyline with going back in time. Morgan is traying to tell everyone, that she is from the future, but no one belive her, because she look like her twin sister. (Won't tell more that will spoil the story) Also that love/hate relationship between Morgan and Derek. Derek won't marry. But because King Henry forced him to take a bride (Morgans twin sister) he don't have a choice. Morgan is fascinated by Derek even though, she is traying to fight the attraction she feels for him. This book is well written. Perhaps it is not historically accurate, but it does not matter. The book is fun and Katherine Kellgren does a great job. I bought the book because it was cheaper than using a cerdit. But worth every penny. Hope you will enjoy the book as much as I did.
