In a continuation of the Boardinghouse Betrothal series, now to be known as Heaton House, is book 7, Julia's story:
Julia Olsen was the first boarder at Heaton House, on her own for the first time, and a bit too independent. She didn't much like Mrs. Heaton's rules--no going out by herself after dark unless accompanied by a man. She understood it all now, but not before nearly ruining her life by sneaking out to meet her beau. He'd come calling a few times, but Mrs.Heaton didn't take to him--or so he said. So he insisted Julia sneak out to meet him, and sure he was the man she'd marry, she did. But unknown to her, Mrs. Heaton's son, Michael, who ran his own detective agency, had the man investigated. The he followed her one night and confronted the man with the knowledge that he was married and had two children. Julia was more than heartbroken, she was disgusted that she'd fallen for the man's lies, and mortified that her landlady's son knew how gullible she was. Through the years, she'd watched one and then another of the boarders fall in love, but because she believed she had a knack for falliing for the wrong man, she decided never to be so vulnerable again and never to risk having her heart broken agan.

He feels bad for disappointing her, but it was his heart that'd been broken. And he didn't intend to let it happen again. Still, when his mother expressed a desire to travel to New York City to see the cousin she'd been corresponding to for years, Josh felt the least he could do was grant her wish and take her. But now she's here in the city, seeing her cousing's famiy and her grandchildren, Josh fears she'll be after him to get married more than ever. And he'll have to dissappoint her all over again.
