She would rather burn in his presence than pine in his absence 

Faith Wellingford Evers, Duchess of Ashedon, is tired of society’s endless gossiping about her failings and her late husband’s infidelities. Seeking escape one night, she’s attached by ruffians, but is saved by an unlikely figure from her past.

Having risen from penniless orphan to Member of Parliament, David Tanner Smith is no longer the quiet boy Faith once knew. With the first spine-tingling kiss, their old friendship is transformed. And in its place is an explosive mix of illicit encounters and forbidden desire…

“A sweet love story focusing on a rekindled childhood love, lovingly crafted by Justiss.”—Romantic Times Magazine

Away from society's prying eyes… 

After suffering the loss of her beloved husband, quick-witted Lady Margaret Roberts has sworn off the pursuit of passion…that is, until she meets Giles Hadley. 

Bitterly estranged from his family, reluctant viscount Giles knows all too well the devastation of an unhappy marriage. So while he is prepared to indulge in an illicit affair, he must beware, for spirited Maggie awakens in him something even more forbidden—the desire to claim her as his wife!

“Every Justiss novel is a keeper! This is the start of a riveting new series, Hadley’s Hellions…Book One is full of politics, blackmail, scandal, and forbidden romance!”
4 stars, Maria Ferrer, Romantic Times Magazine



HADLEY’S HELLIONS—Four rebels determined to change the world—and the women who transform them

Illegitimate child of a younger son who fell in love with the family governess before inheriting the title and being forbidden to marry her, Benedict Tawney is a hell-raiser who ran away to join the army in India at 16. Returning three years later to grudgingly accept his father’s help in attending Oxford, he has never forgotten his resolve to abolish a system that persuaded his father to abandon his child to claim a title—or the Oxford classmates who mocked his mother. When he learns that the sister of one of his Oxford tormenters has become the subject of a drunken wager to see which rake can seduce her, he hesitates to intervene. But quiet Lady Alyssa Lambornne is no man’s tool…

Book 4: Christopher’s story
Although technically legitimate, all Society knows that Christopher Lattimer, son of baron Lord Vraux, is actually the son of one of his mother’s many lovers. Growing up in a house where each child had a different actual father, though he caroused with his peers at university, Christopher vowed that when he finally marries, he will choose a pure maiden of impeccable morality, so that his children will never have to wonder who their real father is. Only he can’t help finding his good friend Elie Parmenter, long-time mistress of an older peer who recently died, so much more appealing than the virginal maidens he’s trying to court…


With Christopher and Ellie’s book off to the editor, Julia turns to pondering a new series…to feature the girls of the Vraux Miscellany, tentatively entitled “THE SCANDAL SISTERS.”  Watch here for more news!
