Widowed Lady Julia Renwick is still young enough to crave a man’s touch; but she’s too old to think that the Earl of Bedingfield could see her as anything more than a family friend. Garrett Walker is handsome, charming and only 26 years old—the perfect catch for any one of this year’s debutantes. Garrett has no interest in the maidens vying for his attentions. He wants only Julia. With just two weeks left in the season, he makes a bold move by asking her to dance. When she counters with a shocking request of her own, Garrett eagerly agrees. Soon, they are stealing away for passionate encounters at every society event they attend. Garrett introduces Julia to excitements she never knew existed, and her newfound confidence quickly attracts other eligible men. It’s not long before Garrett realizes he must find a way to keep the lady all to himself…

Review: I really didn’t like Julia at first. She was whiny and the author kinda kept dwelling on her insecurity without supporting it by fleshing out the character. I breezed through several pages I thought could have been done better, but stick with it cause it’s worth the read. Garrett is a great little character. The book is not that long, but it’s still a nice little story to read before bed or when you need something quick. It will make you feel sad for the characters when they think they won’t last as a couple, and Garrett’s lovely finale will definitely leave you smiling.
