This week, I’m featuring Judith McNaught.
Until You, published in 1995
A teacher in a school for wealthy young ladies, Sheridan Bromleigh is hired to accompany one of her students, heiress Charise Lancaster, to England to meet her fiancé. When her charge elopes with a stranger, Sheridan wonders how she will ever explain it to Charise’s intended, Lord Burleton.
Standing on the pier, Stephen Westmoreland, the Earl of Langford, assumes the young woman coming toward him is Charise Lancaster — and informs her of his inadvertent role in a fatal accident involving Lord Burleton the night before. And just as Sheridan is about to speak, she steps into the path of a cargo net loaded with crates!
Sheridan awakens in Westmoreland’s mansion with no memory of who she is; the only hint of her past is the puzzling fact that everyone calls her Miss Lancaster. All she truly knows is that she is falling in love with a handsome English earl, and that the life unfolding before her seems full of wondrous possibilities…
Oh, Judith McNaught just slays me with her books. This is one of my favorites out of all her books. The story will make you swoon and not because of a crate that got dropped on your head. Stephen Westmoreland is one of the earliest heroes I’ve read and I just love him. I may have cursed at him a couple of times in the book (LoL) but I love him just the same. He is not without faults and is far from being perfect but his love makes him so near to that ideal. There were heartbreaking parts but this book still remains as one of the most romantic stories I’ve read. Period.
Also, here‘s a site that’s dedicated to Judith McNaught and her books and they have recent news about the next projects lined up by Ms. McNaught. And guest what? Her next books will feature the American descendants of the Westmoreland dynasty.
