About the Author
Juliana Gray began writing as a child to relieve the tedium of being sentenced to her room, and later turned to romance to relieve the tedium of unsatisfactory suitors. Sadly, despite five yearsandrsquo; residence in the most exclusive areas of London, she never met a single duke, though she once shared a taxi with a future baron. Julianaandrsquo;s debut romance trilogy, including A Lady Never Lies, A Gentleman Never Tells, and A Duke Never Yields, was largely written when she should have been sleeping. She enjoys dark chocolate, champagne, and dinner parties, and despises all forms of exercise except one.
