I have a real treat for my readers today – I’m featuring the wonderful historical romance writer, Katharine Ashe. If you’ve never read any of Katharine’s lush and sexy romances, you should know that she was named by Booklist, the prestigious review journal of the American Library Association as one of “the new stars of historical romance.” And Katharine does know her history, since she holds a Ph.D. in the subject and is a professor of European History. How cool is that?
Katharine’s first book was Swept Away By A Kiss. It received great critical acclaim, and was a top pick from RT Book Reviews and a nominee for the “Best First Historical Romance” Reviewer’s Choice Awards. And Romance Junkies gave it a Blue Ribbon Rating, calling it “Rompalicious!”
Packed full with adventure, witty repartee, an intriguing plot, wonderful characters, steamy hot love scenes and even pirates, this story is unforgettable.” –Romance Junkies
Oh, my God! Witty repartee, hot love scenes, and pirates. Seriously, what more could romance readers ask for?
Katharine’s latest book is Captured By A Rogue Lord. It also received a Top Pick from RT Book Reviews: “Ashe knows how to captivate readers with her action-packed romance brimming over with marvelous characters, sexual tension, witty repartee and action, action, action. Her take on the pirate tale is novel, exciting and highly romantic.”
Here’s the blurb for Captured By A Rogue Lord:
She would marry no man…
Serena Carlyle dreams of a happily ever after. Firmly on the shelf at twenty-five, instead she’s determined to find the perfect match for her beautiful younger sister. What better prospect than their neighbor, the wealthy, rakishly handsome Earl of Savege? Now Serena can beg his help in halting a local band of smugglers. Then, one night, stealing away from yet another disappointing ball, Serena finds herself trapped alone with a stranger …
Until he captured her—body and soul
His kiss was irresistible, his caress unforgettable, and he hides a devastating secret. A Robin Hood upon the sea, Alex Savege is the brazen pirate Redstone, seizing the yachts of spoiled noblemen to settle an old debt. Serena needs a hero, but her heart is in the gravest danger—for it is soon to be captured by a man as skilled at seduction as he is at plunder.
Smugglers, people! Sexy smugglers!
Katharine has very graciously donated a copy of Captured By A Rogue Lord for today’s feature. Let’s talk about outlaw heroes. Do you love them as much as I do? Who’s your favorite pirate, or smuggler, or highwayman hero? One commenter will win a copy of the book.
