Orphaned as a child, Anna Beasley was raised alongside her titled cousin in the high Society of the ton. But part-Indian Anna knows better than anyone that appearances trump social grace, even to those who raised her. After the loss of both her inheritance and her adoptive family’s support, work as a governess seems to be Anna’s only path forward . . . until she meets a man who is completely unattainable, and she feels seen and accepted for the first time.
Aspiring politician William Thaxton had no intention of falling in love with a governess. But from his first embarrassing encounter with Anna, he knew she was exceptional. As William gets to know Anna better, he can’t help falling in love with her, despite the infuriating stumbling block that her social status presents. As they navigate intolerance, cruelty, and William’s own ambitions, William and Anna must prove that love knows no boundaries and that the heart doesn’t play by Society’s rules.

“Of Jasmine and Roses is an engaging and thoughtful debut by Jill E. Warner. Readers will become immersed in the plight of Anna Beasley as she navigates her place in a society that seems to block her every ambition. I was most caught up in Anna’s intriguing character battle as she comes to terms with her heritage, her extended family, and who she really is to the core. With a deft plot, unforeseen obstacles, and a charming romance, you’ll want to make this your next weekend read.”
–Heather B. Moore, USA Today bestselling author
