BOOK OF THE MONTH (Jun ’17): Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn

Historical Romance novels are notorious for having bodice-ripper themes–that innocent heroine and rake of a hero combination–but lo and behold, Julia Quinn, who came and changed the game by having her stories innocently romantic but never lacking the fire.
