About the author

Biography of Quinn, Julia

Julia Quinn is the pseudonym used by Julie Pottinger (born Julie Cotler in 1970), a best-selling American historical romance author. Pottinger grew up in the New England and California. She has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List nine times. Pottinger went to Harvard and majored in Art History. After getting this degree, she decided that she wanted to be a doctor, so she had to complete two more years of college to fulfill her science credits.

While studying science, she drafted two romance novels. A few weeks after she was accepted to medical school, she discovered that her first two novels, Splendid and Dancing At Midnight, had been sold at auction, so she postponed medical school for two years while she wrote two more novels. By the time Pottinger finally entered Yale medical school, three of her books had been published. After only a few short months of studying medicine, however, she left medical school and devoted herself full-time to her writing.

Pottinger lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Paul Pottinger. She was the recipient of the Romance Writers of America RITA Award in 2007 for "On the Way to the Wedding" and in 2008 for "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever".

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-06-15)

Returning to England from an enforced three-year sojourn in Europe after crippling a friend in a duel, Daniel Smythe-Smith, Earl of Winstead, arrives just in time for his family's annual musicale and is instantly captivated by a breathtakingly beautiful woman at the keyboard-a woman who is definitely not one of his relatives. But Anne Wynter, governess to Daniel's three young cousins, is a lady-in-hiding from a dangerous, scandal-tainted past-a past that returns to threaten both their evolving relationship and their lives. A cruel, sadistic villain adds a dash of uncharacteristic violence, making this intriguing story darker than Quinn's usual lighthearted fare.

Verdict: Once again fans are swept up in the offbeat antics of the Smythe-Smith clan and will be rewarded with lively humor, delightful romance, and surprisingly thrilling suspense. Romance Writers of America Hall of Famer Quinn (Just Like Heaven) lives in the Pacific -Northwest.

Review by Library Journal (2012-06-01)

Long-time Quinn fans remember the Smythe-Smith family from her popular series about the Bridgertons. In this second book in the more recent series (after Just Like Heaven), she focuses on the burgeoning relationship between Daniel, the lone Smythe-Smith brother, and governess Anne Wynter.

Verdict: A governess and an exiled Earl? This is, of course, the perfect pairing for a Quinn novel, as usual full of fantastic characters and a sweet and spicy romance.
