Overview

Six years ago, Elizabeth Harewood and Lord Roland Penhallow were London's golden couple, young and beautiful and wildly in love. Forced apart by her scheming relatives and his clandestine career, Lilibet and Roland buried their passion beneath years of duty and self-denial, until a chance holiday encounter changes everything they ever knew about themselves...and each other.

But Miss Elizabeth Harewood is now the Countess of Somerton, estranged wife of one of England's most brutal and depraved aristocrats, and she can't afford the slightest hint of scandal to her name. When Roland turns up mysteriously at the castle where she's hidden herself away, she struggles to act as a lady should, but the gallant lover of her youth has grown into an irresistibly dashing and dangerous man, and temptation is only a single kiss away...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Gray retells the events of her A Lady Never Lies from the perspective of gentle Lilibet Somerton, who’s trapped in a loveless marriage. She and her adorable young son, Philip, flee England for 1890 Tuscany, only to bump into her first love, Lord Roland Penhallow. Roland is on his way to an Italian castle with his brother, the duke of Wallingford, and auto inventor Phineas Burke. Coincidentally, Lilibet and her friends are heading to the same castle, intent on hiding Lilibet from her wretched husband. Roland is thrilled to see Lilibet again and sets out to charm her and Philip; despite his scandalous reputation, Lilibet finds it hard to resist. The past and present intertwine in an intriguing mystery, as Lilibet and Roland explore and overcome their past difficulties. Fans of sweet courtship will enjoy this shift from the more raucous romance between Phineas and Lilibet’s friend Lady Morley. (Nov.)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“Juliana Gray is on my auto-buy list.”—New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt

“Juliana Gray has a stupendously lyrical voice, unlike anybody else's I've read—really just a gorgeous way with language.”—New York Times bestselling author Meredith Duran

“Again dazzling readers with scintillating wit, lusciously layered characters, and sizzling, sensual romance, proving [Juliana Gray] truly is the newest incandescent star in the romance firmament.”—Booklist

Meet the Author

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, including A Lady Never Lies, A Gentleman Never Tells, and A Duke Never Yields, was largely written when she should have been sleeping. She enjoys dark chocolate, champagne, and dinner parties, and despises all forms of exercise except one.
