Juliana Gray began writing as a child to relieve the tedium of being sentenced to her room, and later turned to romance to relieve the tedium of unsatisfactory suitors. Sadly, despite five years' residence in the most exclusive areas of London, she never met a single duke, though she once shared a taxi with a future baron. Juliana's debut romance trilogy, A Lady Never Lies, A Gentleman Never Tells, and A Duke Never Yields, won widespread acclaim, including the RT Book Review's Seal of Excellence for August 2012. Under her real name, Beatriz Williams, she is also the author of Overseas and A Hundred Summers. She enjoys dark chocolate, champagne, and dinner parties, and adores hearing from readers.
Praise for the novels of Juliana Gray: "Juliana Gray has a stupendously lyrical voice."--Meredith Duran, New York Times bestselling author "Juliana Gray is on my auto buy list."--Elizabeth Hoyt, New York Times bestselling author "The best new book of the year!"--Lauren Willig, national bestselling author "Gray's impeccably crafted debut...is a complete triumph."--Booklist (starred review) "Juliana Gray writes a delightful confection of prose and desire that leaps off the page."--Julia London, New York Times bestselling author "Exquisite characterizations, clever dialog, and addictive prose...make this exceptional debut stand apart."--Library Journal (starred review)
Three princesses from the German principality of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhof are forced to flee to England following the murders of their father, the prince, and the husband of Luisa, the eldest sister and heir. They arrive at the London residence of their uncle the Duke of Olympia and a plan is hatched to keep the young women safe while discovering who is behind the assassinations. Disguised as a young man, Emilie is sent to the Yorkshire estate of the reclusive Duke of Ashland to serve as tutor to his 16-year-old son, Freddie. The duke was severely maimed and disfigured during the campaign in Afghanistan in the 1870s, and his wife left him. Now, once a month, the duke is entertained by a female in a room at the Ashland Spa Hotel. Emilie manages well as tutor Tobias Grimsby, yet at the hotel dressed as herself, Emilie is mistaken for the woman trysting with the duke and finds herself in a room, stripped to her chemise, with Ashland in a chair while she reads to him. Verdict Emilie, "who, beneath her quiet and dutiful exterior, craved adventure," finds more than adventure with a man who suffered greatly for his country and now thinks he knows a semblance of peace with a seductive young woman. Featuring astute writing and charm, this work from Gray (A Duke Never Yields) sets off a new series with some serious heat.-Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal (c) Copyright 2013.
