More About the Author
She quickly showed an affinity for writing which was encouraged by the headmaster who saw in her a return to the classical English style that was, at the time, being overwhelmed by the popular realism style growing in the Continent. With the headmaster's help, Barrett was able to publish some short essays and dramas, but to little acclaim.
It was while attending university that Barrett, bound for a career as a male English instructor, discovered a new pride in womanhood brought about by a chance meeting with Henry Carey, a talented satirist five years her junior.
Though their relationship was brief, it provided Barrett with a great sense of confidence, both in her gender and her talent. She never returned to her earlier masquerade of masculinity.
Barrett's writing took on a new focus, writing romance from the point-of-view of her heroines. This new style was both highly controversial and highly popular, and would go on to make her a household name even to this day.
Julia Barrett died in 1766. Originally it was believed she died of syphilis, but further research has debunked this theory. This was likely a rumor spread by her detractors. Recent studies point to a congenital heart defect.
She was survived by fourteen children, all adopted from Africa.

Natan de Manua - Nathan - is seeking redemption for something he thinks he did more than five hundred years earlier. He'd been suffering in tormented limbo until he was offered the chance to watch over Sara although he doesn't know what he's supposed to do or when. He always assumed he'd stay incorporeal but the more he's with Sara, touching her in her dreams and being part of her life, the stronger he becomes until he's able to assume a solid form again. The happiness that he and Sara find with each other feels fragile though because both know that if he's been allowed to become corporeal, chances are it's because the danger he's been sent to protect her from is near and when his job is done, he'll be gone.
While this is obviously a contemporary romance, it has a love-through-the-ages theme that reminded me of some of the romance novels that got me obsessed with the genre when I was a lot younger. There are almost two stories book-ending a tragedy - Sara and Nathan's sweet, passionate and happy romance and the event that led him to her then the aftermath. There's a paranormal suspense story throughout the majority of the book, enough to keep the lovers on edge and just enough to add some darkness to the story.Read more ›
I found this story intriguing because I have not read a paranormal romance involving a ghost as a hero before. I kept, thinking "how is this going to work?" Well, Ms. Barrett did a very good job of making this erotic romance "work." She was able to finesse the story where the reader is able to make the connection necessary to make the romance credible. The characters were believable, appealing, and unique. In addition, the plot was exciting. If you are a paranormal reader who likes her story spicy and unique, you will enjoy this story.
Happy Reading from Bona Fide Relfections!!
This is a very well written story, with a full fledged story line involving all the key elements to a great drama. At one point I found myself getting choked up, and thought "well, that's it then, I guess that's all the Happily ever after she gets". But the author has another surprise in store for you, and I love the way she wrapped up the story. It left me fully satisfied & and smiling at the end. Kudos to Julia Barrett for an amazing book that I hope brings her the wonderful reviews and recognition she deserves.

I have had the privilege to witness the growth of a writer. With her three latest books Julia Barrett has become much more than just another romance writer. This is a very original story where the hero is, well, the hero is dead. sort of. Parts of his body are very much alive. Sara and Nathan are great together. I would like to see a little more sexual variety, but sex is not the main focus of the story--just a great side benefit. The dialogue is very sincere and true. The story is about love bearing all, and winning it all.
The story has some edge of your seat thrills and some tissues-at-hand sad. When Julia originally pitched this story she was told you couldn't kill of the main love interest. As feisty as her heroines, this spurred Julia on to the task!
To understand this story. You have to accept that the hero is dead but not dead. You also need to set aside your disbelief for Julia's world building. I would like to see both a little more character development and a little more emotional range and demonstration. I didn't feel the chills that Sara felt in the action scene. And a few questions continue, unanswered. I can't say which because of spoilers. Not all the mysteries need to be solved, the world building is an example. But there are a couple of "Wait, what about..."
I recommend this book; because it is very original, interesting and intense,
