    A great story!

    I was so excited to see a new historical from Julie after she had been writing a lot of contemporary. This story did not disappoint that anticipation! What does a Countess do when he husband departs this earth but leaves behind a mountain of debt? One building, yes one building was left to Delilah that she had to make the most of to survive. Of course it was near the docks, not the best of locations but when she runs into Angelique, her former husband's mistress, they devise a plan. What? Really? Well a lady has to do what a lady has to do to survive! They sell what that can and end up opening a boarding house on the property. Tristan is the Captain of the King's Blockade and has been in charge of rounding up smugglers. There is a group of smugglers left he is determined to catch because they committed a heinous crime against a peer. All paths lead him to a piece of property owned by a man who had just died and his widow had taken over the property. Well let the adventure begin! Wondering if Delilah is involved in the smuggling he gets close to her and takes a room at the boarding house. There is a definite connection between these two and he does what he must to see if he can learn information from her. (ok yes there is lust!) I really enjoyed this story and watching the building of the relationship between the two and would recommend to all!
