The Duke's Captive

I’ve heard much of Adele Ashworth, but nothing I’ve read has overly impressed me, and I was about ready to give up. However, I’m glad I asked for The Duke’s Captive and, although it isn’t perfect, I can say that I finally understand the fuss. In The Notorious Proposition ...

A Notorious Proposition

Adele Ashworth returns to Winter Garden, a town she made famous in her classic romance. However, while I passed a few hours pleasantly enough reading A Notorious Proposition, in the end I was left almost completely unmoved by the book. Lady Ivy Wentworth and Garrett Burke both believe the other ...

The Duke's Indiscretion

Along with many others in the romance community, I anxiously awaited the last installment of Adele Ashworth’s Duke’s Trilogy. Both of the earlier books in this series garnered B+ grades for me personally. Knowing that Colin’s book was yet to come meant things could only get better – or so ...

Duke of Scandal

The long-awaited sequel to Duke of Sin is here, and it was worth the wait. In Paris, Lady Olivia Shea had a whirlwind courtship before wedding Lord Edmund Carlisle. He deserted her on the wedding night - pre-consummation - and absconded with most of her money. Heartbroken, but ev ...

Duke of Sin

Make no mistake about it: Adele Ashworth is back. Elegantly written, refreshingly adult, and over-the-moon erotic, Duke of Sin marks the author's return to form in a very, very big way and, to put it simply, I loved it. How did I love it? Let me count the ways. I loved the pleasingly authentic ...

When It's Perfect

 When It's Perfect is a sequel to Someone Irresistible, which was described by reviewer Rachel Potter as being "an interesting and very sensual read." I'm happy to report that exactly the same thing can be said of When It's Perfect. Miss Mary Marsh and Marcus Longfellow, the Earl of Renn are a perf ...

Someone Irresistible

Someone Irresistible was an interesting and very sensual read. I suspect that Ashworth fans will not be disappointed in this latest offering. Professor Nathan Price suffered an extremely humiliating setback to his career two and a half years ago. An up-and-coming paleontologist, ...

Winter Garden

I was entranced by this book. To begin with, the cover is as beautiful a one as I have seen in a long time. So often in the field of romance, the covers are full of shirtless men, and women who are falling out of their bodices. Winter Garden features a fully dressed man in period clothing standing b ...
