I Kissed an Earl(153)

By: Julie Anne Long

Before she could answer he’d swept her up in his arms. Taking command.

“Yes, we do need to move over to the settee if you want to kiss me and…otherwise…properly. The door is locked. See if you can kiss me until I at least see stars.”

And Captain Flint, always equal to a challenge, complied.

They both saw stars, of course. The sort by which they would navigate the course of forever. Acknowledgments

My gratitude to the people who make my dream job even more of a pleasure: my delightful, clever editor, May Chen, and wryly brilliant agent, Steven Axelrod; to all the talented, hardworking people at Avon who helped create the book in your hand; to Kim Castillo for priceless (and fun!) assistance; to all the warm and wonderful and passionately opinionated readers who spread the word about books they love; and deepest appreciation to romance booksellers the world over.

San Francisco Bay Area native JULIE ANNE LONG originally set out to be a rock star when she grew up (and she has the guitars and fringed clothing stuffed in the back of her closet to prove it), but writing was always her first love. She began her academic career as a Journalism major, until she realized Creative Writing was a better fit for her freewheeling imagination and overdeveloped sense of whimsy. And when playing guitar in dank, sticky clubs finally lost its

“charm,” Julie realized she could incorporate all the best things about being in a band—namely drama, passion, and men with unruly hair—into novels, while also indulging her love of history and research. Since then, her books have been nominated for numerous awards, including the


RITA , Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice, the Holt Medallion, Bookseller’s Best, and The Quills, and reviewers have been known to use words such as “dazzling,” “brilliant,” and

“impossible to put down” when describing them. Visit Julie at www.julieannelong.com, www.julieannelong.typepad.com, or www.myspace/julieannelong.
