Shunned by the ton
How would she find a husband?

Part of Sisters of Scandal: After her mother's latest outrageous affair, innocent Prudence Lattimar has fled to Bath.

With her dubious background, she must marry a man of impeccable reputation. A clergyman with a title and a considerable income would be perfect.

She must steer clear of Lieutenant Johnnie Trethwell–his family is as notorious as hers, no matter how funny, charming and unfailingly honorable he is!

THE SCANDAL SISTERS—Rich, well-bred, gorgeous—and destined to be spinsters? Despite their charm and beauty, the Lattimar twins are tainted by the reputation of the notorious mother they so closely resemble. Known as the offspring of a man not their legal father, rumored to possess the same profligate sensuality as their mother, they are…the Scandal Sisters.

Book 1: Pru's story, A MOST UNSUITABLE MATCH, OCTOBER 2018

Driven from London by her mother’s latest scandal, Prudence Lattimar flees with her aunt to Bath.  Gentle Prudence wants only to find a man who will care about her and give her the normal, loving family she has always wanted.  Anxious to avoid men who believe her to be like her seductive mother, she intends to encourage only the most proper and conventional of suitors.  And who could be more proper and conventional than Lord Halden Fitzroy-Price, the handsome younger son of a duke who is soon to become a clergyman? If only wicked ex-soldier Johnnie Trethwell weren’t so attentive—and so alarmingly able to awaken her repressed desires!

Book 2:  Temperance’s Story, THE EARL’S INCONVENIENT WIFE, MARCH 2019

Angered by Society’s treatment of her mother and unfounded suspicions about her character, Temperance Lattimar dreams of exploring the world, gathering treasures for her father. Hiding a dark secret, she’s determined never to marry—until her father’s restrictions on her fortune induce her to suggest a marriage of convenience to her brother’s rakish best friend, Gifford Newell. If he’ll allow her to travel as she wishes, he can use her money to further his career in Parliament.
Then a tragic accident turns this “mister” into an earl, upsetting the comfortable terms of their “marriage blanche.” Temper knows an earl needs an heir, while Gifford finds himself increasingly tempted to renegotiate their bargain of a marriage in name only--for the hoyden he once knew has become a seductively beguiling woman...

With Temperance’s story in final preparation for its March 2019 release, Julia is beginning a new series, “The Splendid Spinsters,” featuring three friends of ordinary looks and modest dowries who vow not to be married off, but to remain independent and do something important with their lives. First will be Emma Henley, who, to the horror of her proper family, wants to use her social contacts to find employment for the girls trained at the school run by Ellie Parmenter (heroine of SECRET LESSONS WITH THE RAKE.) If only she didn’t keep running into beguiling tease Lord Theo Collington. And though she isn’t interested in marriage, an affair with this dashing rogue might be just the experience a strong, independent lady needs!
