Ravished (#61 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on April 15, 1998 Beauty and the Beast stories are favorites with many readers of romance novels.

One Way Out

One Way Out is an enjoyable and suspenseful read centered around a unique subject and featuring interesting characters. That unusual subject matter may be a bit on the dry side for some, but those who like scientific forays with their romance will likely appreciate the author's efforts. Cassie As ...

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, Nathan expected t ...
