9780061341595: Like No Other Lover (Pennyroyal Green Series)

Now or Never. . .

It's the last chance for Cynthia Brightly, the ton's most bewitching belle. Driven out of London by a secret scandal, she must find a grand husband at the Redmonds' house party before word of her downfall spreads all over England. Unfortunately, someone at Pennyroyal Green is already privy to the whispers of broken engagements and dueling lovers: Miles Redmond, renowned explorer and—thanks to his brother's disappearance—heir to the family's enormous fortune.

Miles set his sights on Cynthia once, at a time when the ambitious beauty thought herself too good for a second son. But now he's heir apparent, relishing his control. He strikes a bargain with her: he'll keep Cynthia's steamy secrets and help her find a husband among the guests—in exchange for a single kiss.

What could be the harm in a simple kiss? Cynthia is about to discover that it's enough to unleash fierce passion—and that Miles Redmond is most certainly like no other lover in the world.

From the Inside Flap:

"Where do I begin? Do you ever have the problem of loving a book so much that you just cannot find the words to adequately describe it? That is exactly how this book has made me feel. As I read it I kept marveling at the layers being peeled away, revealing a thoroughly fascinating and complex relationship between two people who have been so wrong about each other right from the beginning. All I wanted to do when I read the last page was to go to the beginning and re-read it all over again and recapture the amazing feeling this story gave me. I wish all the books I read had such magic.-- Stacy's Place on Earth, trelainastarblazer.blogspot.com/2008/11/like-no-other-lover-by-julie-anne-long.html

"One of the best Historical Romances s I've read.. Long's writing is so utterly delightful that she had me laughing out loud at some scenes and mopping up tears while reading other scenes.  Her character development is such that Cynthia and Miles are totally realistic"-- LadTeeDa Reads,.Therladeetdareads.wordpress.com/2011/07/01/review-like-no-other-lover-by-julie-anne-long/

"Exquisitely sensual... exceptionally well-developed secondary characters and a pair of unforgettable protagonists. This latest in Long's tales featuring the Eversea and Redmond families is a delightful, urbane, and witty story that readers will savor."--Bette-Lee Fox, The Library Journal

There is plenty of humour to go by in this book to make any fans of say, Julia Quinn, happy. There were a plethora of laugh- out- loud moments from whimsical situations involving Cynthia potential suitors to the sometimes fantastic dialogue but this does not mean that Like No Other Lover is devoid of emotional substance. Quite the contrary - one of the greatest strengthens of the novel lies in the balance between humour and emotion.-- the Book Smugglers, thebooksmugglers.com/2009/02/book-review-like-no-other-lover-by-julie-anne-long.html

"I had a party the other day at my house. I spent most of the party hiding out upstairs, trying to read this book in peace. I couldn't help it, this book was good. The woman can write the heck out of a story and her dialogue is off the chains. The storyline moved at a great pace and it kept me alert and wanting to keep turning the pages. I loved the way that Julie Anne Long painted this story with a vibrant voice that had me reading each and every word in the book and not skimming anything.

Should you read this book? Heck yeah, this book is definitely binge worthy!"-- the Book Binge, thebookbinge.com/2008/10/review-like-no-other-lover-by-julie.html

About the Author:

San Francisco Bay Area native Julie Anne Long originally set out to be a rock star when she grew up (and she has the guitars and fringed clothing stuffed in the back of her closet to prove it), but writing was always her first love. She began her academic career as a Journalism major, until she realized Creative Writing was a better fit for her freewheeling imagination and overdeveloped sense of whimsy. And when playing guitar in dank, sticky clubs finally lost its "charm," Julie realized she could incorporate all the best things about being in a band—namely drama, passion, and men with unruly hair—into novels, while also indulging her love of history and research. Since then, her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the RITA®, Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice, the Holt Medallion, Bookseller's Best, and The Quills, and reviewers have been known to use words such as "dazzling," "brilliant," and "impossible to put down" when describing them.
