With Valentine's Day just a few days away, I thought it would be a perfect time to highlight what I consider one of the best romantic trilogies I have read in a long time, The Rosewood Trilogy by Laura Moore. I read the first of the trilogy, Remember Me, last summer. The first book introduces you to the Radcliffe sisters, Margot, Jordan, and Jade, with the focus on Margot. At 18 years of age, Margot leaves home to become a model after her father refuses to let her help manage Rosewood, the family horse-breeding farm in Virginia -- and the man she loves has cast her aside.
