Spotlight on A new Release: How a Lady Weds a Rogue by Katherine Ashe

Title: How a Lady Weds a Rogue

Author: Katherine Ashe

Publication: Avon

Release Date:  TODAY!!!!!

Series: Bk 3 in The Falcon Club

Beautiful Diantha Lucas understands society’s rules: a young lady must find a man to marry. But Diantha has a bigger goal and she’s not afraid of plunging into adventure to achieve it. When daring, dashing Wyn Yale rescues her, she’s certain he’s just the man she needs.

As an agent for the secret Falcon Club, Wyn knows his duty, but he’s not about to admit he’s a hero of any sort. He has a plan too: steal a prized horse, murder an evil duke, avenge an innocent girl, and probably get hung for it—in that order. Wyn can’t afford to be distracted by a pretty face, even one with delectable dimples and kissable lips. But how can a country miss and hardened spy solve their problems when they can’t keep their hands off each other?

Many of my heroes and heroines have secret identities. There may be a reason for that…

In the third grade I dreamed of being a veterinarian when I grew up and spent every extra minute walking my best friend’s dog. That year I wrote a sequel to Margret Rey’s Pretzel, ‘the longest dachshund in the world,’ featuring a much friendlier love interest than poor Pretzel’s wretchedly snobbish girlfriend.

As a high-schooler I still intended to be a vet, but of large animals, and I longed to live by the ocean—‘down the shore’ as they say in my hometown, Philly. Over vacation, on a yellow legal pad I penned the story of a horse-crazy girl summering at the beach who discovers the magical allure of that unique animal, the teenaged lifeguard. (My little sister sat next to me reading each page as I produced it. God bless every writer’s first fan.)

By the time I graduated from Duke University with my bachelor’s degree, I had a yen to teach. About then I delved into another writing project: a novel about a young English teacher learning a breathtaking new language in the arms of her soccer-coach colleague.

A decade or so later I found myself finishing up a PhD in History. While allegedly taking notes on ancient texts in the Vatican Library, I furtively filled my laptop with steamy chapters about a heretic priestess and the inquisitor-knight to whom she burns to surrender.

Eventually, I got the picture. I love romance—the high adventure, pure emotion, and rich sensuality of a hero and heroine’s journey together. Whatever else I'm doing, I simply must write romance.
