About this author

Julianne Donaldson grew up as the daughter of a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot. She learned how to ski in the Italian Alps, visited East Berlin before the wall came down, and spent three years living next to a 500-year-old castle. After earning a degree in English, she turned her attention to writing. She writes historical romance when she is not busy with her four young children and husband. Edenbrooke is her first novel.

November is Proper Romance month! I'm teaming up with fellow Proper Romance writer Sarah M. Eden on a mini book tour. I'm excited to meet readers outside of Utah! And if you love to give books as Christmas presents (like I do), this is the perfect opportunity to get your books signed and personalized. Come see us and get your shopping done. :)

" Leah wrote: "What age is this book appropriate for?"
Pride and Prejudice? It's appropriate for any age, but will appeal to mature teenagers to adults.

Patti is finished with Edenbrooke: I want a Philip Wyndham of my own! 5 stars! This is the best proper Regency romance I've ever read.
" I've been getting a lot of messages lately from other writers who want my advice on how to get published. As much as I would love to make a personal connection with everyone who picks up my book, I simply don't have the time to answer all of m..." Read more of this blog post »

Loved this book. I read it out loud to my kids (skipping a couple of gruesome paragraphs, due to the 4-year-old in the room), and found myself so caught up in the story that I had to read ahead after they went to sleep. The narrator is hilarious, the ...more

“To my unsuspecting love.
When I look into your eyes, I lose all sense of time and place. Reason robbed, clear thought erased, I am lost in the paradise I find within your gaze.
I long to touch your blushing cheek, to whisper in your ear how I adore you, how I have lost my heart to you, how I cannot bear the thought of living without you.
To be so near to you without touching you is agony. Your blindness to my feelings is a daily torment, and I feel driven to the edge of madness by my love for you.
Where is your compassion when I need it most? Open your eyes , Love, and see what is right before you: that I am not merely a friend, but a man deeply, desperately , in love with you.
Longing for you.”
Julianne Donaldson, Edenbrooke

“Dear Philip,

I don't imagine you will ever read this. If you do, it is bacause something dreadful has happened to me. I find myself in the hands of a dangerous man. I am determined to fight him but before I do, my heart demands that I write this note to tell you that I love you. I am sending my heart to you in this letter so it will be kept safe from whatever may happen to me tonight. I don't know if you want it or not, but it has always been yours.

With all my love,
Julianne Donaldson, Edenbrooke
