About Juliet Waldron

“Not all who wander are lost.” Juliet Waldron was baptized in the yellow spring of a small Ohio farm town. She earned a B. A. in English, but has worked at jobs ranging from artist’s model to brokerage. Twenty-five years ago, after the kids left home, she dropped out of 9-5 and began to write, hoping to create a genuine time travel experience for herself—and her readers—by researching herself into the Past. Mozart’s Wife won the 1st Independent e-Book Award. Genesee originally won the 2003 Epic Award for Best Historical, and she’s delighted that it’s available again from Books We Love. She enjoys cats, long hikes, history books and making messy gardens with native plants. She’s happy to ride behind her husband on his big “bucket list” sport bike.

Review by: penwoman on March 2, 2018 :
What does the future hold for Carrie? She is not sure whether Tony, her ‘childhood protector’, ‘teenage ego booster’, the one person who always listened to her, will help her.
Years ago, Tony’s wife, Marilyn spread false accusations about Carrie, a nurse, in the hospital cafeteria. Embarrassed and angry Carrie walked away from Tony, her best friend. Since then, Marilyn has left Tony and their son Chad, who reacted by behaving badly.
Tony has never forgotten, Carrie, his first love. When she asks him to marry her to fulfil the terms of her grandfather’s will, although he has reservations he agrees to help her. However, with a rebellious child to deal with and an uncertain relationship they have much to resolve.
Ms Lane-Walters has written a romantic novel about a marriage of convenience with many twists and turns that held my interest from beginning to end.
A Marriage Takes Two contains explicit sex.
