Today's guest is Jane Ashford, and there is an awesome giveaway too.
Tell me about yourself....
Jane: I’m a born writer – never happier than at my keyboard making stuff up. : )
What made you decide to re-release your backlist titles?
Jane: I felt there were good stories in these books that readers would enjoy. Fortunately, historical romance doesn’t get dated. No need to wonder why nobody has cell phones or knows about Google.
And about your new book, coming out in March: The Bride Insists?
Jane: It’s tells the story of a young woman, Clare Greenough, who’s working as a governess after her family’s home passes to a cousin. She gets unexpected good news – she’s inherited a fortune from her great uncle the nabob. But that same despicable cousin, Simon, is a trustee until she marries, and he’ll make sure she can’t enjoy this windfall. Clare decides to “buy” a compliant husband on the Marriage Mart, someone who will agree, in writing, to let her control her own money. Baron Jamie Boleigh takes that bargain, to stave off ruin of an estate he’s been fighting to save for most of his life. Being a man of his time, he believes that Clare will recant eventually and become a proper, submissive wife. As he sees it, it’s only natural. Clare thinks they’ve established an equal partnership. The result: two passionate people on a collision course.
Why is Clare and Jamie the couple to read about?
Jane: As they discover that passion, though glorious, is not enough to make a marriage, they grow and change, and gradually find their way to a much deeper alliance.
Are you working on something right now?
Jane: I’m in the midst of a new Regency historical called Married to a Proper Stranger. It’s the story of a couple who are separated a month after marriage, when the husband is tapped for a two-year diplomatic mission to China. The book begins when they’re reunited, both much changed by their experiences during their time apart. Sparks fly as they struggle to get to know each other all over again.

Sparks fly in this sexy, fast-paced Regency romance by acclaimed, bestselling author Jane Ashford
When governess Clare Greenough learns she’s inherited a fortune, the good news comes with a catch: it will be held by her cousin until Clare can find a husband. To stave off ruin, Jamie Boleigh, the seventh Baron of Trehearth, agrees to marry Clare under the condition that she controls the money, a provision he hopes to overturn. Their passionate relationship becomes a battle of wills. When the cousin tricks Jamie into betraying his wife, he’ll have to prove the truth or lose her forever.
