In 2010, Ms Quinn won her third RITA Award in four years and was the thirteenth author to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Her books have been translated into twenty-eight languages,

Rika - (The Unpretentious Reader) I was searching for Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron, I was devastated to realize it doesn't really exist

Maybe it does exist though but Goodreads doesn't know about it.. Just like Unicorns

Feby Thank you for adding me, Mrs. Quinn. I adore your book. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton is one of my favorite :)


Laurie Hi Julia,
I am absolutely in love with your books! Every one of them I read captured my attention and made me wish that I was really living in old days London. They were fun and witty, my favorites had to be the Duke and I, and Everything and the Moon. Most of them I read I gave five stars because they had so many different characters with different personality's. It was just so much fun reading your work.
Thank you for your genius books!
Laurie
