Short stories and a few extras about Richard and Rose.
Richard and Rose live in the eighteenth century, a time of turmoil and adventure. They swashbuckle their way through eight books, and this volume is both a companion and introduction to the main series.
"The Unexpected Samaritan" is a glimpse into Richard's previous existence as a rake and man about town. "A Question of Honour" explains why Richard leaves his family home early to arrive unexpectedly at Rose's home in Devonshire. "Barbara's Wedding" is an account of the wedding of Rose's best friend, and also shows how close the couple are getting.
You can also read the story of how Richard and Rose came to be, and the story of their publication, in "Farewell, Richard and Rose."
