San Francisco Bay Area native Julie Anne Long set out to be a rock star when she grew up (and she has the guitars and fringed clothing stuffed in the back of her closet to prove it), but writing was always her first love. She began her academic career as a Journalism major, then realized Creative Writing was a better fit for her freewheeling imagination and overdeveloped sense of whimsy. Still, for years she worked by day in finance, software development, web & graphic design, and marketing and promotions...until the fateful day when playing guitar in dank, sticky clubs by night lost its "charm." Which is when she realized she could incorporate all the best things about being in a band--namely drama, passion and men with unruly hair--into novels, while indulging her love of history and research. Since then, her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the Romance Writers of America Rita, Romantic Times Reviewer's choice, the Bookseller's Best and the Quills, and reviewers have been known to use words such as "dazzling," "brilliant" and "impossible to put down" to describe them. Her latest, WHAT I DID FOR A DUKE, was chosen as one of Amazon's Best Book of 2011.

The titular Lady Derring meets with her solicitor after her husband's death, only to discover he left her destitute. While she's learn...

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. What mattered was she was standing, and that was very much in spite of the men who had populated her life. Readers first met Angelique in Lady Derring Takes a ...

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. No one, particularly not her late husband, had ever valued her for wits. Oh, but she possessed them. Starting off the Palace of the Rogues series, Lady Derrin...
