Spotlight on Julie Anne Long and HOW THE MARQUESS WAS WON

December 27, 2011


“You will LOVE the Pennyroyal Green series!”—#1 NYT Bestselling Author Julia Quinn


Since 2012 is just days away, I wanted to be among the first thousand or so people to wish you a Happy New Year, lovelies—and I hope you and yours are thoroughly enjoying (and safely surviving) the holiday season. Since I feel it’s my duty as an author to alert you to opportunities to warm up those e-readers Santa brought ;): HOW THE MARQUESS WAS WON is here—AND the e-book is priced at only $4.99 at all your favorite e-book retailers! Not only that, but I’m so thrilled to tell you that it’s arriving on a veritable wave of raves, including a Starred Review from the Library Journal AND (this floored me) selected it as one of the Best Books of the Month! I truly hope your new year launches with similarly lovely surprises! I can’t wait to hear what readers think—HOW THE MARQUESS WAS WON is the sixth book in my Pennyroyal Green series, the follow up to WHAT I DID FOR A DUKE (chosen by Amazon as one of the Best Books of 2011), and I’m still half in love with my hero, Julian Spenser—and it was such a pleasure to bring him together with Phoebe Vale—who’s sedate on the surface, fiery beneath, and in every way his perfect match.

Here’s a bit more about their story:

Ruthless, cold, precise, Julian Spenser, Marquess Dryden, tolerates only the finest—in clothes, in horseflesh, in mistresses. And now he’s found the perfect bride, the one whose dowry will restore his family’s shattered legacy and bring him peace at last: the exquisite heiress Lisbeth Redmond.

But one unforgettable encounter with Lisbeth’s paid companion, Phoebe Vale, and the Marquess is undone: this quiet girl with the wicked smile and a wit to match is the first person to see through the icy façade to the fiery man beneath. But their irresistible attraction is a torment as sweet as it is dangerous: for surrendering to their desire could mean losing everything else they ever wanted.

I’ll be honored if you launch your new year with HOW THE MARQUESS WAS WON—and I hope it proves an auspicious start to the year, if you do.

All my best to you and yours,

Julie Anne Long
