After five seasons…
She was still on the shelf!
Part of The Cinderella Spinsters. Miss Emma Henley knows she’s neither pretty nor rich enough to land a husband. Instead she’s thrown her passion into good causes. But this season she’s tempted by a flirtation with Lord Theo. The dashing rake is just as determined to stay unwed as she is. It’s scandalous…but if she’s never to marry, perhaps an affair with this unrepentant rogue is just what an independent lady needs!

“Character growth makes this sensuous and witty romance a balm for the soul.”—Monique Daoust, Fresh Fiction
“THE AWAKENING OF MISS HENLEY is a romantic and enjoyable read.”—Rose Blue Reviews
"5 stars - Marvelous! This a such a wonderful love story. It's mature, but sexy, smart, emotional, with well-drawn characters, and I truly enjoyed the artistic backdrop. The beautiful happily ever after for a well deserving couple, is the cherry on top. I enjoyed every single minute of it!!" – The Book Review
"5 stars - Mrs Justiss constructed an incredibly wondrous slow-burn romance, with flawed and lively characters. I so enjoyed this brilliant tale of giving character a chance over appearance, that next year is far away to wait for the next story." – Elodie's Reading Corner
"Julia Justiss delivers again... and the outcome is delightful." – All About Romance
