Overview

When star-crossed lovers reunite under strange circumstances in Regency England, will they be brave enough to take a second chance at love?

The Secret Life of Lady Julia is Lecia Cornwall’s seductive follow-up to her debut historical romance, How to Deceive a Duke.

Lady Julia Leighton is engaged to a long-time family friend who doesn’t spark her passion, and at her betrothal ball she meets a seductive stranger who steals hot kisses—and much more—from the beautiful innocent.

Thomas Merritt is a thief of women’s hearts, and their expensive jewels. His steamy encounter with Lady Julia unexpectedly has him rethinking his wicked ways, but in the end, Thomas flees temptation.

When their paths cross years later, Julia has a secret she’s desperate to bury and Thomas is hiding something dangerous, but he needs her help to set things right. Can two lovers with dark pasts overcome their tangled history and rekindle their former love?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ruined by rash indiscretion and shunned by the ton, Lady Julia Leighton, along with her infant son, heads for the continent, serving as companion to the widowed sister of a diplomat. Now that Napoleon is imprisoned on Elba, Vienna is awash in political maneuverings, and with her considerable language skills, Julia is soon coerced into spying for her delegation. She never imagines she'll reconnect with Thomas Merritt, the larcenous rogue who fathered her child, or be swept up in a treacherous game that could quickly turn deadly for them both. VERDICT Fast-paced adventure, exquisite descriptions of glittering Regency Vienna, a pair of perfectly imperfect protagonists, and an abundance of spies, plots, and treachery keep the webs spinning in this captivating tale. Cornwall (How To Deceive a Duke) lives in Alberta, in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.

Once in a while a truly wonderful story is available. The hero and heroine were not perfect, but perfectly extraordinary characters during remarkable times. Julia and Tom are faced with choices and their decisions make them worth reading. I highly recommend this book. Thank you Lecia Cornwall for creating a terrific story.
