Launch of The Painter's Daughter

Author Julie Klassen
There's something special about December . . . and I don't just mean a fat man in a red velvet suit, stepping on pine needles in the living room, or Christmas cookies. Every December author Julie Klassen launches a new book. This year's fare is The Painter's Daughter. Her launch party was at a local Barnes & Noble, and indeed, a good time was had by all.

My Review

Love a dark and brooding hero who’s really all heart on the inside? Captain Stephen Overtree is the man for you! He comes to the rescue time and time again in The Painter’s Daughter, another deliciously intriguing Regency by author Julie Klassen.

This tale of a marriage of convenience is sure to keep you up late into the wee hours of the morning. The heroine, Sophie Dupont, is between a rock and a hard place when she finds out she’s pregnant. Her lover leaves her behind for a painting trip to Italy.

Enter hero Stephen Overtree, a hulking captain in the army, and the brother of the man who ruined Sophie. He does the right thing by asking her to marry him, giving legitimacy to the unborn babe. But should she? She hardly knows him. She does, and ooh-la-la, what a heated relationship begins.

And therein begins The Painter’s Daughter. There’s intrigue, romance, and plenty of secrets to go around. Stock up on frozen pizzas before you crack open this one, folks. Your family will starve otherwise, because there’s no way you’ll stop until you read The End.

I think I've only read one of her books....I know, I know, why you ask? Too many authors and not enough time. So, unless I win certain books, I stick to authors I am already loving......you being high on that list. :-)
