No Time For Love: Julie Bryce was beautiful and independent. She didn’t know exactly what she wanted in a man, but he mustn’t be rich, powerful or handsome. Investigating a jewel theft that had clouded her family’s good name, Julie was drawn into a world on international intrigue where she met Mark Sefton and fell for him–hard. Mark was rich, powerful, handsome, mysterious, with “no time for love. ”
“As a rule the library door was left open but now it was closed, and Julie remembered that the butler had said her aunt was engaged with some business appointment. Normally the Princess refused to discuss business at home. Perhaps this was some investigator inquiring about the theft of her jewelry.
Perkins had carried her suitcase to the small elevator that had been built in beside the dining room at the back of the hallway. It was just large enough for three people, providing none of them was very big. She shook her head at the butler, who pushed the button and the door closed behind him.
Julie started quietly up the carpeted stairs. She had nearly reached the landing when she heard a man say, “You aren’t losing your nerve, are you?” She had never heard the voice before, a deep quiet voice.
“I’m scared half out of my wits.” That was Aunt Georgia’s soft contralto, the voice that was so effective on the rare occasions when she was persuaded to make speeches or television appearances.
“Have you changed your mind?”
“It’s a bit late for that, isn’t it? After these months of planning. After taking the major step.”
