Overview

No matter what her family and friends say, Jenny knows she will never fall in love again. How can she, when her childhood sweetheart was one of the countless killed at Waterloo?

So when the Earl of Danfield proposes a marriage of convenience, it seems the perfect solution. He will secure his inheritance, and she will be spared the necessity of being paraded in society, forced to dance and flirt and do all the things her broken heart cannot do. His proposal will give her what she wants most. Peace.

But peace is the last thing she finds in her marriage. Her growing attraction to the earl brings with it guilt that she’s betraying her beloved Johnny. Her mother-in-law considers her an interloper. Her husband’s former lover makes it clear she doesn’t want it to be former. And when a supposed prank nearly kills her, Jenny has to wonder—now that the earl’s inheritance is assured, has she become an inconvenience to be eliminated?

    I will say it over and over again....I LOVE Claudy Conn's histor

    I will say it over and over again....I LOVE Claudy Conn's historical romance books.  They are seriously addicting and make it feel like you go back to a time where men literally swept women off their feet.
    "After the Storm" is a novel about Jenny and how she has lost her childhood sweetheart, Johnny during Waterloo.  She has told herself, she will never love another person again due to the fear of losing them.
    Although, it will be kind of hard for her to not fall for the Earl of Danfield because the minute she is introduced to him, he is all that she thinks about.  Jason (the Earl of Danfield) gives her a proposition of marrying him.  If she marries him, he will finally receive his heritance and she will not have to endure going out during the London season like her father wants her to.
    The Earl also wants to try to win Jenny's heart over even though she says she will never love again.  He knows in the bottom of his heart, she is falling for him.
    When the Earl and Jenny marry, he takes her to one of his home and she meets his step-mom and step-brother.  While there, Jenny is almost killed and someone is out to kill the Earl.  Jenny is determined to find out what is happening at the Earl's castle and get to the bottom of who wants her husband dead.
    When she finally finds out who it is, she will find out the truth on what really happened to her beloved Johnny.

    Claudy writes a book that is full of passion and love and how it is possible to love again after a tragedy.    What I adored most about this book is that I could not figure out who was causing the trouble and trying to kill the Earl.  I would think it was the step-brother and then another time I would think it was the step-mother.  When I finally found out who it was, I was in shock just like Jenny was in the story.
    Claudy also knows how to make readers fall in love with her characters.  I had so much sympathy for Jenny and as well as Jason. Jenny for losing her loved one and Jason for trying to win over Jenny the minute he realizes he cannot live without her.  They both were destined to meet each other.  =)
    I even fell for some of the secondary characters in "After the Storm"...one being in particular...the Earl's stepbrother.  Even though, there were times I thought he was the one causing trouble, he still won my heart over.  He had a way with words.  =)

    If you love a historical romance that has passion, mystery, romance, humor, and action, you will enjoy reading "After the Storm".

    After The Storm by Claudy Conn Jennifer of Ashley Grange had onc

    After The Storm by Claudy Conn
    Jennifer of Ashley Grange had once been a lively and mischievous girl. The past year she was but a shell of herself. Her best friend and fiance, Johnny, had died in the Battle of Waterloo. She would never love again. Instead of facing a Season, she agrees to a marriage of convenience. Can she ever be happy without feeling the guilt that she’s alive and Johnny is dead?




    Jason, The Earl of Danfield, has been left no choice. His father’s will would have him married by his twenty-ninth birthday or his younger step-brother would inherit. He despised the idea of his father ruling his life from the grave, but he needed his inheritance. When he meets Jenny, he realizes maybe marriage won’t be the worst thing in the world.




    Claudy Conn once again has written a great story. Full of suspicious could be villains, rogues and jealousy abounding. All kinds of characters to suspect of evil doing. This story even includes an old dark drafty castle right along with an evil step-mother.  
    **Sexual content within marriage

    Claudy has another hit. I started this book and could not put it down. Jenny and Jason are so real. She is afraid to love and he needs a wife to secure his estate. There is much going on behind these two and it will keep your intrest.

    Jenny is young and feels alone.  After losing her fiance at Wate

    Jenny is young and feels alone.  After losing her fiance at Waterloo she does not seem to be able to move on.  In come the Earl of Danfield with an offer that will help them both.  Their feelings for each other grow and an HEA looks on the horizon until a couple of "pranks" occur leading Jenny to believe she may not be safe.  Who can she trust?  Her heart, her husband, her in-laws, her friends?




    I loved this historical.  Romance, mystery, and a lovable heroine make this unputdownable read one of my favorite historical romances.  The story was paced beautifully and had me needing to keep reading, even as midnight came and went.  The secondary characters add so much depth to this tale of two lost souls finding each other and what matters in life.    If you like your historical romances with a bit of mystery and a whole lot of chemistry, this book may be just the book for you.  This book is 18 plus for sexual content, which takes place within the context of marriage (if that is something you are looking for).

    From start to finish I was hooked and found this book impossible

    From start to finish I was hooked and found this book impossible to put down. I loved the story that unfolded between Jenny and Jason, and absolutely fell in love with their characters. As always there were twists and turns that you don't expect, and in the end you are left with an incredible story. I definitely recommend this book, and I know you won't be disappointed. :)

    Okay wow!!! Totally adored this book with a passion. I devoured

    Okay wow!!! Totally adored this book with a passion. I devoured it.. I couldn't put it down. The whole storyline was great. I enjoyed it. The mystery and suspense kept me glued to my kindle.
    This book had it all. Lots of action, emotion, laughs and sizzling passion.

    The characters in Claudy's books always stand out. This book was no different.

    Jenny is a precious beauty who is in grieving for her lost love. She really doesn't understand what she is feeling when this new man shows up in her life.

    Justin is a handsome man looking for marriage and when he meets Jenny he decides she is the one for him.

    Justin was soo sweet. Jenny was sassy and funny. Both of them fit perfectly together. This story had everything you could possibly want.

    Claudy knows how to deliver and she continues to do so with all of her amazing books. I am a die hard fan!!

    Great love story

    This love story was really fun. It had everything including lots of jealousy but no infidelity. Fairly explicit sex but not erotic. No love triangles either! I hate love triangles!!! This was just a wonderful, stand alone love story.

    REVIEW 

    This is a very well written Historical Romance Novel. I fell in love with the characters. 
    We have Lady Jennifer Ashley who is a robust, cheerful young lady who unfortunately loses her
    best friend/ and love of her life, and Fiancé Johnny. Or so she thinks he was the love of her life.
    Johnny’s life is taken while in battle at Waterloo. His best friend Mac has come to tell the horrible news to
    Jennifer and she goes into mourning for just about a year. No matter what her family which consists of her
    Aunt Beth and Father Sir Ashley or what her best friend Lavvy says Jennifer hasn’t been able to move on.
    While out walking and enjoying the tree that she and Johnny had carved their names upon she is rattled
    when a horse and rider about run her over. The man riding the horse comes to her aid and plants a kiss
    upon her lips. Well I never she thought!! Much later at a gathering she finds out the Man who kissed her is
    Jason The Earl of Danfield. She knows his reputation and has learned that the Earl must get married and
    she hears that he has come to ask for the hand of Lavvy. After visiting with the Lavina’s father however Jason
     decides to himself that he must have Jennifer of Ashley for his bride. He goes to her father and asks
    permission to speak with Jenny. After being truthful with her she accepts his marriage proposal and
     they are married within a short time. Jennifer goes off with her new husband to his castle.
    Their marriage was to be one of convenience nothing more but Jenny soon discovers she has come to
    truly love Jason. However there is something really wrong going on at the castle .
    Someone is obviously wanting to harm Jason and Jennifer. Mac rescues Jennifer from a most terrifying fate.
     Mac vows to get to the bottom of this as does Jason and his younger brother. The story takes us through
    Jealousy of old lovers, evilness of a stepmother. 

    Can Jennifer and Jason finally have happiness? 
    What will become of Mac? 
    I cant tell you anymore as I don’t want to spoil anything but let me say This was a truly fantastic book !!
    AND the shocker near the End WOW!!! Blow you away !!!

    OMG I loved this book!  The love story between Jason, sexy ladies man who has to marry in order to obtain his inheritance, and Jenny a young beauty coming out of mourning for her fiancee. When these two meet..watch out! Sparks will fly! But it is not smooth sailing for them, murder, maliciousness and way too many suspects!! Claudy Conn is an amazing author!! She hits the mark every single time!
