About the Author

Julia lives in England with her family. Mills and Boon novels were Julia's first "grown up" books she read as a teenager ("Alongside Georgette Heyer and Daphne du Maurier."), and she's been reading them ever since.

Julia adores the English countryside ("And the Celtic countryside!"), in all its seasons, and is fascinated by all things historical, from castles to cottages. She also has a special love for the Mediterranean ("The most perfect landscape after England!")--she considers both are ideal settings for romance stories!

In between writing she enjoys walking, gardening, needlework and baking "extremely gooey chocolate cakes"--and trying to stay fit!

Sure the story line at the beginning is a little over the top, but with a title like Baby of Shame what is one to expect? The reason this book is worth reading is that the characters react with feeling and dialog in ways that ring true. It is refreshing to have a female lead NOT melt at the hero's every touch - except the first time - like a spineless wonder; especially with the way he treats her on their second encounter. It is a fast and easy read that kept me interested in what would happen next and how misunderstandings would get cleared up. Mutual love of their son and the eventual discovery of one another's true character lead to a true and binding love.

I actually had a little bit of trepidation about reading this one, but I am glad that I did. Mostly because Alexis is just one ruthless and obnoxious Hero, and I typically shy away from those types of books. If I don't, I quickly wish I had! But somehow this novel worked for me. Alexis really grows and you get to see how he grapples with all his ill conceived opinions. I really admired how he admits to having gone too far and that his actions have ultimately damaged and ruined his chances of ever getting the heroine to love and trust him again. He recognizes how hard he has to fight to win her back..and he really does put forth the effort. I particularly liked that the heroine was not some silly spineless doormat. She sees Alex for what he is and makes the right decisions out of respect for herself and her son..
