Publisher's Summary

A year and a half after her husband's tragic death, all Lady Julianna Barrows wants is to be left alone and forget that most of her heart went with him when he passed. Instead, she finds herself the subject of many matchmaking schemes and lurid offers to ease her widowhood, as well as save her fading fortune. Desperate to avoid an arranged marriage, she takes on a position as a tutor, only to discover that the man she's helping unexpectedly stirs her heart and passion.

Nash Wolverton boxed his way out of the London slums and into immense wealth, but he couldn't care less about society's approval. Except he has his by-blow daughter's future to consider. To ensure her acceptance into society, he'll endure anything, including procuring a tutor to transform him into a gentleman so he can secure a suitable, boring wife.

Yet what he wants changes the moment he hires the widow Julianna. She may be a lady, but she's far from tedious. Bold and compassionate, she is nothing like the women of society. Suddenly, she's elicited a simmering desire in him, and even a longing to love and be loved that he always thought out of his reach. Knowing what he planned to settle for can now never be enough, he vows to win her love. But as the walls she's built begin to crumble and a second chance for Julianna seems possible, her fears threaten to destroy all and she alone must decide if protecting her heart trumps breaking Nash's.

After Forever

An absolute new favorite! I adore Julie's books with her romantically flawed characters! I was captured within the first chapter. Tim Campbell is truly amazing with his unbelievable talent at giving life to the vast array of characters. He gives the main male character a sinfully sexy voice and yet has the astonishing ability to give the female characters totally female sounding voices. You really won't want to miss this 5 Star audiobook. 💗

After Forever!

A charming little story about giving love a second chance!
After losing her husband to consumption nearly a year and a half ago, lady Juliana has no desire to love again. Even though her mourning period is over and friends are hatching matchmaking schemes to find the young and attractive widow a new husband or even a paramour. Juliana wants nothing to do with these schemes, instead her only wish is to care for her young daughter and raise her to be a respectable lady.
All is not as Juliana knows. She learns of her late husband's gambling problems and how the estate has been losing money for over two years, leaving her and her young daughter almost destitute. Desperate to ease her brother-in-law's burden of providing for her on top of his growing family, Juliana takes a position as a tutor for the newly wealthy shipping magnate Nash Wolverton. Never did Juliana think that her new employer would stir the fire within her heart!

I was lucky enough to win an audiobook copy of this story. It makes a fantastic knit and read!
