Ever wished Pennyroyal Green was a theme park, or that you could take a vacation at The Grand Palace on the Thames? Come join our new Facebook Group dedicated to frolicking in those fictional worlds! At The Pig & Thistle After Dark (named for he pub in Pennyroyal Green and one of the books in the Palace of Rogues series), we're having a book-a-month read-along of the whole series, complete with prizes, zoom calls, games, discussion, trivia, behind-the-scenes looks and more.

And if you're on Instagram, find me at @julieannelongauthor—I'll be doing a giveaway there, too!

...Seeing STARS.... oh my word, darlings—YOU WERE MADE TO BE MINE, the fifth book in the Palace of Rogues series, will be here in a mere ten days (June 28th) and it will arrive in the world amidst a constellation of starred reviews—Publishers Weekly said it may be my best book yet. And in keeping with our celestial theme, you might have noticed that the stunningly romantic cover is sporting a sort glowing golden sun featuring even more glowing words: "I am in awe of her talent.—Julia Quinn." It's an honor that blew me away and moved me to tears, frankly. I can't wait for you to meet Hawkes and Aurelie—go here to read the back cover copy, glowing reviews, an excerpt, and to pre-order it from your favorite bookseller.

02.13.22 ...Splendid SALE!! You can snag the e-book versions of I'M ONLY WICKED WITH YOU (from the Palace of Rogues series—a Kindle Big Deal) and LIKE NO OTHER LOVER (a Kindle Monthly Deal) for just $1.99—be quick like a cat, because the sale is fleeting!

... I'M ONLY WICKED WITH YOU is here!! I hope you have a marvelous time reading Hugh and Lillias's story—which, as you'll recall, it begins in the epilogue of ANGEL IN A DEVIL'S ARMS. It goes onto FIREWORKS and passion and laughter and tears everything you might expect at The Grand Palace on the Thames. ;) I hope you'll join me today at my Facebook Page just to say "hi" and "happy Book Birthday!", because I'll be giving away a signed book to a random commenter. You can also join me on Instagram at @julieannelongauthor, where I'll be doing the same thing! And on the 26th, I'll be spending the day at the fabulous Eloisa Jame's Lindow Castle Facebook page, where I'll be giving away signed books and talking about The Grand Palace on the Thames and generally making merry. I so hope you love the story, and that you'll let me know what you think when you get a chance. xo julie

... A NIGHT WITH A ROGUE, the release of BEAUTY AND THE SPY and WAYS TO BE WICKED, is in stores today! TWO stories for the price of one in a special edition re-release of the beloved Holt Sisters trilogy—and have you seen the beautiful cover?? You can order it online, or find it in your favorite romance-selling bookstore. Hope you enjoy revisiting their stories—I was delighted to find how much I enjoyed them after all these years!

7.17.21 ... HOT Summer Sale...HOW THE MARQUESS WAS WON is on sale for $1.99 right now, darlings—it's the sixth book in the Pennyroyal Green series, and you may recall Phoebe Vale, Lord Ice, Charybdis the cat with the dangerously fluffy tummy, and a pair of incriminating gloves that cause Olivia Everszea to make a critical decision (ooo!)!!! If you need it for your e-readers, now is a good time to grab it. And tell your buddies if you think they'd like to read it! Hurry, because the sale will be over as quick as a wink.

... THREE books on the way! ...I'm THRILLED to tell you that there will be Two new Palace of Rogues books, for starters: I'M ONLY WICKED WITH YOU will be out in September (August 24th, to be precise) and AFTER DARK WITH A DUKE in December—and lest you think the summer will be bookless, we've got that covered, too, darlings: a re-issue of BEAUTY AND THE SPY and WAYS TO BE WICKED, packaged together in a duology as A NIGHT WITH A ROGUE, will be in stores as a special paperback edition at the end of July. As I continue to re-build and make changes to this website, probably one of the best and easiest ways to keep absolutely up to date on all of this excitement (oh my goood heavens, (I've been BUSY) is to follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter! I can't wait for you to read these books—I frankly think they're the best I've ever written. xo julie

12.16.20 ... A new year, TWO new books! ...Well, my loves, 2020, the year like no other (I've had a few of those in a row, it seems!) is FINALLY rolling to a close, and as we mop our brows, count our blessings, cherish our loved ones, and move toward the new year managing the delicate balance of grief, hope and determination, I'm glad I have what I hope is some good news for you: I'll have TWO books out in 2021, beginning with Hugh and Lillias's story in I'M ONLY WICKED WITH YOU!! Check out the STUNNING cover and the back cover description here. You may recall meeting them (and witnessing the sparks fly) at the end of ANGEL IN A DEVIL'S ARMS. I cannot WAIT for you to read their story!

And thank you so much for your patience with the various bumps and glitches here on my website. In the wake of the Camp Fire (where I and my family lost our homes and everything we own) I've had to re-build parts of the site from scratch with different software and equipment, and it's been, uh, a bit of a slow and interesting challenge to make updates or changes. :) You may have noticed a few broken parts, and it's still currently a work in progress, but I hope now should be able to find all the book news you're looking for! I hope to get all the fixes completed by early next year. Meanwhile, if you need to reach me right away, you can always find me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram at JulieAnneLongAuthor.
