The Duke

I think it’s fair to say that all of us here at AAR review books because, well, we love books.  We love reading them, talking about them, hearing about them, writing about them and enthusing about them to others.  But when a novel you’ve really been looking forward to, written by an author you ...

A
The Pirate and I

The Pirate and I is a delightful, romantic and utterly charming novella set in between books two and three of Katharine Ashe’s current Devil’s Duke series.  Our reluctant pirate is Charlie Brittle, and his true love is Esme Astell, a perfumer whom he once knew in another - better - life.  Fans ...

Again, My Lord

In the two books in the Twist series so far, Katharine Ashe has taken a couple of well-known movie plots as her starting points and adapted them into historical romances which, while certainly out of the ordinary in terms of the premise, are nonetheless well done and very entertaining, possessing a ...

A
The Earl

Readers of Katharine Ashe’s Falcon Club series will be well aware of the frequent, public, and bitingly sarcastic correspondence that has gone on between the club’s secretary, Peregrine, and the anonymous Lady Justice, pamphleteer, moral crusader and regular denouncer of the abuses and injustice ...

A
The Scoundrel & I

A delightful twist on the Cinderella fairytale (with a nod to My Fair Lady), The Scoundrel & I is the story of down on her luck Gabrielle Flood and the dashing (and handsome) Captain Anthony Masinter.  The novella works as a standalone, but features characters from both the Falcon Club and Pri ...

The Rogue

Although The Rogue is the first in a new series by Katharine Ashe, it is also a continuation of her earlier Falcon Club series, which featured a group of former spies as they attempted to adjust to new, “normal” lives. Three of the five members of the Club are happily settled, and now it’s the ...

Again, My Lord

The second in Katharine Ashe’s Twist series, the ‘twist’ in Again My Lord is based on a famous and popular film (the name of which I won’t reveal so as not to spoil it.) With the exception of maybe one or two incidents, the book was a solid read with interesting and well developed charac ...

B
I Adored a Lord

Once upon a time there were three little girls whose parents sent them on a ship from the West Indies to England. What happened to their parents, no one knows, but the girls first found themselves in a foundling home and then adopted by a sweet, if absent-minded vicar. Among the Gypsies who camped n ...

I Loved a Rogue

I Loved a Rogue is the final book in Ms Ashe’s Prince Catchers trilogy, and it’s a fabulous end to what has been a very enjoyable series. One of the things I’ve very much appreciated about these books is the way each of them has a different ‘feel’ which is specifically related to the perso ...

B
My Lady, My Lord

I have to start this review by saying that, enjoyable though this book is, it’s definitely not one for you if you insist upon a certain amount of realism or historical accuracy in your reading. The story is, in essence, an enemies-to-lovers one, but the plot device Ms. Ashe has chosen to use in or ...
