Julia Broeder is only six months shy of graduating from the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania when one small decision spirals out of control and results in her expulsion. Hoping to travel the world as a missionary doctor, her only choice is to return back home...or throw herself upon the mercy of Ashton Carlyle.

Formal and straight-laced, Ashton Carlyle is not pleased to see an expelled Julia arrive at his Manhattan office. His position as a junior attorney for the Vandermark family's world-famous shipping empire entails taking care of the Broeders, longtime employees of the Vandermark family. But Ashton has no intention now of using his employer's resources in defense of Julia's impulsive and reckless actions.

What Ashton did not expect was a scathing reprimand from none other than the Vandermark family patriarch or the bewildering resistance from Julia herself when he's forced to change his tune. At an impasse, Ashton and Julia never anticipated the revelations that arise or the adventure that awaits them.

In this novella, award-winning novelist Elizabeth Camden introduces readers to the world of the grand Hudson River Valley estate Dierenpark and the enigmatic Vandermark family. Includes an extended preview of Until the Dawn, Camden's full-length Dierenpark novel.

    I decided to read this before starting in on the book. It's a great little novella, with just enough teaser with the novel's characters to make me ready to run home, grab my copy of "Until the Dawn", ...

    I read “Until the Dawn” when it released a few years ago, but hadn’t found time to read the prequel novella until now. It would definitely work better to be introduced to Sophie in this novella ...

  • Beth

    Great writing, loved the hero, but the whole thing felt rushed to me, since it's a novella. Also, Julia kind of drove me crazy with how flippant she was being about getting back into school - it's onl...

    This one is really a 3.5 in that I had a believability problem with the heroine's character arc, but loved the hero and of course the writing was excellent....

    I'm not big on Novellas. They bug me. You're supposed to pack a whole book into a hundred pages or less? Well this one was 131 pages, so it was, like, half the pages of a regular book, but with lots o...

    A little confusing at times, but still a good story. I'm curious about Sophie and what's going to happen in her story, so I might read the next book. :)...
