Exciting, powerful, full of passion, emotion and adventure, yet with many deeper
layers of meaning, romance often compared to Jo Beverley, Dorothy Dunnett, Laura Kinsale
or Mary Jo Putney.

Meanwhile, here's some history:
In 1998 in an unprecedented move for them, Berkley
released my first long historical romance ILLUSION by Jean Ross Ewing as a
lead title. The double award-winning FLOWERS
UNDER ICE followed in 1999. In August 2000 my publishers stepped up their
support with a brand new "look" for MY DARK
PRINCE, a Jove lead with a fabulous step-back cover and a new pseudonym: Julia
Ross. In June 2002, Berkley released THE
SEDUCTION by Julia Ross as my first trade paperback. THE SEDUCTION went back to press for a second printing
almost immediately and several more Berkley romances have followed since
then! Thank you, readers!
"Your books are clever, intelligent, perceptive and
beautiful. They require the reader to think while they ravish the senses and build castles
of dreams in your heart."
My first three Berkley/Jove novels are all based in
England or Scotland during the Regency (the time of the Napoleonic wars). The most
important ingredient is always a to-die-for hero and his passionate romance with an
interesting heroine, but these are not simplistic stories. I like to weave in some real
intrigue and mystery, some deeper echoes of allegory and myth, along with some very
high emotional stakes, to create a multi-layered romance that I hope is worth reading over
and over again. THE SEDUCTION is a Georgian
romance set entirely in England, where a man whos about to lose everything has less
than a week to win the favors of a lady hes never met.
Before I began writing for Berkley, I wrote six Regency
romances (Rewards) for Zebra Books.
