My Lord Protector book. There was very little romance and absolutely no spice to this book. The main characters spent all but the last five pages of the story talking themselves out of their feelings for each other. It got old real fast!

Edmund's only intention in marrying Julianna is to save her from her evil stepbrother after her father's unexpected death. He is well aware that she is promised to his nephew Crispin, who is away on a long sea voyage. Besides, he is twenty years her senior, in poor health, and a confirmed bachelor. The idea is to keep the marriage unconsummated and have it annulled upon Crispin's return.
But after Julianna is instrumental in saving his life through her vigilant nursing during a life-threatening illness, he begins to have feelings that are NOT strictly avuncular. But how can he betray his beloved nephew by stealing his fiancée?
Julianna regrets her attraction to her husband because of her pledge to marry Crispin and because she knows her husband does not return her feelings. But there are times when she senses the sexual attraction between them. . . or is she imagining it? Even so, where does Crispin fit into all of this?
Will the two of them be able to overcome their mutual guilt to admit their feelings and fulfill their love?
The difference in their ages is 20 years, no more than Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester. This age difference was not uncommon in 18th century marriages. Frankly, I think vulnerable older heroes can be a welcome change from the younger ones, who have a tendency to flit from one woman to another in the blink of an eye. I'd like to see more older, mature heroes like this because, well, as exciting as it is to imagine being in love with a real Corinthian man-about-town, it's a bit harder to imagine him settling down with just one woman for the rest of his life.
In any case, the attraction fairly sizzles between these two conscience-stricken lovers, and I couldn't put the book down. This is an author who knows how to keep the reader's attention riveted.
What a nice breath of fresh air!!! I could not put this book down. Finally I came accross a story that is romantic and not silly, and not padded with sex scenes. It focused on Edmund and Julianna slowly discovering each other, and that was a treat. Not to say that it wasn't sexy. The sexual tension kept building steadily on, but it had a reason for being and not just thrown in! The book was also full of well developed secondary characters that added to the storyline. You will enjoy this one.

This was a wonderful book to read on a weekend. It was refreshing to read about two souls in love with other, but fearing their partner did not reciprocate. Julianna needs a savior (Edmond)to take her from her cruel stepbrother, Jerome. But her fiance, Crispin, is away on a sea voyage (and what I saw of him later, he should have stayed away). Crispin's older uncle saves Julianna by marrying her, keeping her chaste, to wait Crispin's return. Not surprisingly the couple fall in love but they don't share their thoughts and most of the rest of the book involves their thoughts of love and what the other would do if their partner knew their true feelings. This was not a long book, but to me it was just the right length for an overnight read. Any longer and it would have become tedious and I would have run out of patient with the couple not realizing their love for each other. It was a breath of fresh air.

A wonderful emotional journey, exploring the softer depths of human experience. Genuine, meaningful, intelligent and stylish piece of writing. I LOVED the beautiful use of Shakespearean quotes. Carries you smoothly to the very end, with no lapses into the fantastic misadventures most tales employ to stretch the plot.

I was intrigued to read a book about an "older" gentleman who marries his nephew's betrothed to save her from a horrible fate at the hands of her stepbrother. He is just keeping her with him until her fiancé returns and then have the marriage annulled. As they live in the same house the sexual tension between Edmund and Julianna is incredible. By denying themselves release, each character learns to love and care about each other for other reasons!

I've read this book several times and each time I see more about Edmund and Julianna that I like. All the supporting people in the book are well fleshed out, making everything so believable. The descriptions of the countryside made me want to run through the morning dew in my bare feet!

It all adds up to a delightful afternoon of reading!

I should have been doing housework, I should have been doing homework... instead I spent the entire day reading this wonderful book. Why only four stars? I was so caught up in the emotional roller coaster that was the hero/heroine's relationship that I wanted "more" than a harlequin is wont to give, although that is not a failure of the harlequin, but the success of the author in creating two captivating characters.
