Book Description

7 Sep 1999
Yellow for friendship.
Pink for passion. But . . .
Red Roses Mean Love.

She dreamed of roses....

Orphaned and abandoned by her fiancé, Hayley Albright is determined to care for her younger siblings even if it means having to give up her own dreams. She doesn't expect to ever find love or get married . . . until one moonlit night when she saves the life of a mysterious stranger.

. . . And he wants only to make her dreams come true....

Lord Stephen Barrett woke up gazing at the face of an angel. He was alive. And safe, for now, from the killer stalking his every move. Allowing Hayley to believe he is just a tutor of modest means, Stephen stays on for reasons of his own, never anticipating the passions Hayley would stir in his cold, wary heart. Her innocence is pure seduction. Her touch is sweet temptation. And suddenly the man who has everything is willing to risk it all--for a woman who has nothing to give . . . but all her heart. . . .

Product Description

From the Author

England, 1820. You might capture a killer--and fall in love
I love stories that make me laugh, cry, and fall in love--and if there's a bit of mystery thrown in, so much the better! And I especially love a strong heroine who isn't afraid to do whatever is necessary to save her man. And if that man happens to be a wildly attractive, very proper English lord who finds himself in the middle of a madcap household (oh, and there's a killer after him!)...well, the fun, romance, and mystery is just about to begin.

In my debut novel, RED ROSES MEAN LOVE, Hayley Albright is determined to care for her younger siblings even if it means having to give up her own dreams. She doesn't expect to ever find love or get married...until one moonlit night when she saves the life of a mysterious stranger.

Lord Stephen Barrett woke up gazing at the face of an angel. He was alive. And safe, for now, from the killer stalking his every move. Allowing Hayley to believe he is just a tutor of modest means, Stephen stays on for reasons of his own, never anticipating the passions Hayley would stir in his cold, wary heart. Her innocence is pure seduction. Her touch is sweet temptation. And suddenly the man who has everything is willing to risk it all--for a woman who has nothing to give but all her heart.

I hope you enjoy reading Hayley and Stepen's love story as much as I enjoyed writing it. I also hope you'll stop by my website (a work in progress!) and enter my contest. Drop me a note or e-mail and let me know how I'm doing! www.JacquieD.click2site.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone MUST read this one! 4 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Someone had hired thugs to assassinate Lord Stephen Barrett. The second attempt almost succeeded. Hayley Albright finds Stephen close to dead in the woods and takes him to her home to recover. Stephen pretends to be a tutor. With the help of his brother-in-law, Stephen decides to lay low at the Albright house for awhile and recover in hopes the culprit can be found.
Hayley's parents were years dead. Her father had died without leaving the family with much funds. Hayley, being the oldest, took control. She had to take care of five siblings and a staff. As Stephen recovered, Hayley had unknowingly shown him all that was missing in his life. Hayley's love of her family showed in everything she did. The entire family treated Stephen as one of them, instead of as a stranger. But soon, Stephen would have to return to his own world and face a killer. Hayley had her own secret: how she paid the bills.
***Everyone simply HAS to read this one! I chuckled all the way through it! I laughed out loud several times and twice had to stop to wipe the tears out of my eyes from laughing so hard! This is Jacquie D'Alessandro's debut novel. Dell Publishing was wise enough to quickly snatch up the rights to this author's second novel. With this one book, she has hit my tiny list of authors which I automatically purchase without reading the back first. If it has the name Jacquie D'Alessandro on it, it's guaranteed to please!***

This book was one of the best romance novels I've read in a while (and believe me I've gone through quite a few during my career as a romantic novel reader).

Key words to describe this novel: touching, heartwarming, romantic, genuine and sweet.

I loved how the heroine, Hayley, was such a down to earth person, genuinely kind and intelligent - we were not TOLD all the time how innocent or unlike the ton she was but is rather showed through how she speaks and acts towards those around her. The hero, Stephen, and Hayley were not stuck in the typical rake-innocent lady relationship which was really refreshing. Because of this, they were more equal in that aspect, making their interaction more believable. The chemistry between them are sweet, and slow and good (and not overly electric and steamy with the heroine blushing at every turn, as it is 90% of the time in regency novels). And the novel concentrated on not only their relationship but also each of their relationship with the other family members of the Albright family.

Stephen was also a breath of fresh air in the rake-role, though his background was very much the same as every other rake out there - he's never really known love and has had a fair share of mistresses, all of which was beautiful, sophisticated and rich ladies from the ton. But him as a person is what made me fall in love with him. The way he learned to love through Hayley's six year old sister was a nice and touching twist and how he came to find his place in the chaotic yet loving family of the Albright was so endearing and exciting to read - I didn't want to put the book down or have the story end. It was written in such a way that I just wanted to continue being part of Stephen's and the Albright's everyday life after 'the end'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Drawer Romance! 1 Mar 2000
By J Payne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Red Roses Mean Love delivers what every romance reader wants: a spirited love story filled with characters so rich, they live beyond the final page. Jacquie d'Alessandro, in this debut novel, has bested many romance veterans with her witty characters, vivid descriptions, and laugh-out-loud scenes. Like real women,Hayley is passionate about more than just a man. She adores her family, her vocation, even the scraggly mongrels desparately in need of a bath. Stephen Barrett doesn't stand a chance--and he's all the better for it! Home life is hilarious and the love scenes are sensual and honest. A delightful read that offers the very best of romantic fiction. I can't wait for the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars DELICIOUS & HEARTWARMING 23 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really loved this book. The plot and the characterization were both outstanding (The secondary players were hysterical!), and Hayley was someone I could definitely relate to. Even though the book takes place in 1820, Hayley still had the same problems all women have--juggling home, kids, and career--and falling in love. And Stephen was just wonderful--aloof on the outside, but the poor guy WAS thrust into a completely foreign environment with Hayley and her unusual family. Not to mention that there was a killer after him! Seeing Stephen change from a cold, unloved man into the sort of man we all dream about through the warmth and love of Hayley's family is something I will never forget. I wish there were more like him around! Bravo Ms. D'Alessandro on a fabulous debut. You've made it onto my very select list of must-buy authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Heroine, LOVED the Hero! 28 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What a wonderful book this is! I was going to give my sister my copy to read, but after finishing Red Roses (I stayed up all night to finish it!), I told my sister she'd have to buy her own because my copy was going right onto my keeper shelf. The characters were REAL people. No cardboard people in THIS book. Hayley was a strong, loving heroine, and Stephen was marvelous. The poor man, in spite of having every material advantage, had never known love in his entire life--until Hayley and her family came along. I loved how the author took a sad, lonely, cynical man and let him grow into someone I fell in love with. He had his flaws, but the strength of this family's love showed him a new way. It was wonderful from the first page to the last. It made me feel so good, I'm still smiling! If I could give it FIFTY stars I would!!
