Katharine Ashe writes with eloquence and power. Lisa Kleypas
You ll be swept away by Katharine Ashe's evocative writing. Sabrina Jeffries
Following her sensational debut novel, Swept Away by a Kiss, author Katharine Ashe was named one of the New Stars of Historical Romance by the American Library Association publication Booklist. With each new book she has proven them right and never more so than with her novel How to be a Proper Lady. Continuing her phenomenal Falcon Club series, Ashe enchants with this tale of a woman kidnapped as a child by pirates and returned years later to her English family. She must now learn how to be a cultured lady...and to navigate the treacherous waters of love with the notorious sea captain who brought her, kicking and screaming, back to society. This is witty, emotionally rich, and wonderfully imaginative storytelling that readers of Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James, and Johanna Lindsey will absolutely adore.
Katharine lives in the wonderfully warm Southeast with her beloved husband, son, dog, and a garden she likes to call romantic rather than unkempt. A professor of European History, she writes fiction because she thinks modern readers deserve grand adventures and breathtaking sensuality too.For more about Katharine s books, please visit her websiteor write to her at PO Box 51702, Durham, NC 27717.
