Books by Jennifer Ashley

A
The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie

Narrated by Angela Dawe I wanted to shout “Score” and “Yesss!” and “You got it right!” as I started listening to The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, a favorite of mine and many other romance fans in print. I was guardedly enthusiastic when I discovered Tantor was releasing it in audio. ...

Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage

I’m a big fan of Jennifer Ashley, whose characters are always fantastic and well written. I actually had to stop myself reading Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage so quickly, because that would mean it’d be over soon and I would have to wait for her to write another book. I had a ton of fun r ...

B
Pride Mates

I’ll say one thing about Jennifer Ashley – she is versatile with a capital V. She has written historical romances, contemporary romances, paranormal romances, and erotica. Pride Mates is one of her paranormals and it begins the series Shifters Unbound. Shifters look human, bu ...

The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie

When you’re reading a book that is a step or two – or six or seven – above the norm, you know it almost immediately. Such is the case with The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie. The characters here are so complex and so real that I was fascinated by their journey. Add in the fact that this stor ...

Immortals: The Redeeming

I've enjoyed Jennifer Ashley's historical romances, as well as the historical novel she wrote as part of the Laurien Gardner team. When this versatile author turned her hand to the paranormal Immortals series, I knew I would have to read it. Immortals: The Redeeming is a steamy romance and, while I ...

Highlander Ever After

Highlander Ever After has a very leisurely plot for about the first two thirds of the book, then in the last third it takes off like a rocket. Even though there’s not a lot of action for much of the book, the very likable characters make it a fun read. Zarabeth is a member of a ...

The Queen's Handmaiden

When I read the blurb on the back of the Queen's Handmaiden I thought, "Ugh, it takes place over a decade." I generally dislike sagas. When I started reading the novel, I thought, "Ugh, it's in the first person". I generally find it harder to get into the story when it is in the first person. When I ...

B
The Mad, Bad Duke

I’ve been having a bit of unlucky streak over the last few months when it comes to new-to-me authors others seem to love. I couldn’t be happier to report that Jennifer Ashley seems to have broken it. In some ways hard to define, The Mad, Bad Duke felt a little like an old-fashioned romance. H ...

C-
Penelope and Prince Charming

Penelope and Prince Charming is a Regency-set, paranormal, fantasy, romantic suspense, Cinderella fairytale. Unfortunately, all these disparate elements never quite meshed together to form a coherent story. Damien is a prince in exile, dodging assassins sent by his mad father while making a r ...

B+
Confessions of a Lingerie Addict

Jennifer Ashley is a buried treasure, and a versatile one at that. Her historical romances, beginning with Perils of the Heart, are consistently enjoyable, and under the name Ashley Gardner she writes an historical mystery series (which I am about to go and glom). With Confessions of a Lingerie Add ...
