Spotlight on Jane Ashford

Welcome to a great giveaway opportunity from Sourcebooks, one of my publishers!

Celebrated historical romance author Jane Ashford is re-releasing many of her backlist titles with Sourcebooks Casablanca over the next few years. The good folk at SB are  really looking forward to bringing back so many of Jane’s revered books in print!

Just this past Fall, Sourcebooks was proud to bring three of Jane Ashford’s beloved backlist titles back in print:

Man of Honour

JAMan_of_Honour_CoverThere’s only one man she’s afraid to fall in love with—her husband…

Eliot Crenshaw knew that it was his familial duty to marry a respectable lady. And when he’s stuck in an inn with Laura Lindley for three days— unchaperoned—he decides to do the honorable thing: save her reputation and marry her. He doesn’t believe in love anyway, and Laura’s a pretty, suitable choice for him. Laura, however, always pictured herself marrying for love, and is unsatisfied with her unconsummated marriage. When Eliot’s spurned mistress steps into the picture and tries to ruin Laura, will Eliot realize how much he loves her before it’s too late?

 The Three Graces

JAThe_Three_Graces_CoverWhen It Comes to the Game of Love…

Finding themselves suddenly impoverished and alone in the world, the three Hartington sisters must rely on their wits, charm, and unique talents to support themselves. Forced to go their separate ways, each of these enchanting sisters is brought to a dead end by the perplexing ways of men and the inequity of fate.

Three Heads are Better than One…

Then each receives a letter that changes everything…and if the sisters are going to overcome the obstacles to love, they’re going to require some astonishingly creative solutions…


The Marriage Wager

JAThe_Marriage_Wager_CoverIn this Regency favorite from Jane Ashford, a troubled war hero is dealt an unexpected hand…

When Emma Tarrant enters a gambling house to find her brother losing to a gamester, she follows the strange man home and attempts to settle the score. Colin Wareham is intrigued by Emma’s offer, and when he wins the first hand, he suggests another game. Should he prevail, Emma would be his prize. But as he’s collecting his winnings, Emma’s father storms in and demands a marriage. Though forced together, Emma and Colin’s passion begins to grow… until a sinister man from Emma’s past emerges to raise the stakes.

 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.

  1. Jane Ashford is a new author to me, but I’d love to win the 3-pack. Regency books are one of my guilty pleasures, and these look delightful. I’m torn between Man of Honour and The Marriage Wager. Thanks for hosting Jane, Mia!

  2. Marcy Shuler says:

    I’ve read ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE and really loved it. That was my first book by this author, but it won’t be the last. I especially like the sound of MAN OF HONOUR.

  3. Glenda says:

    I haven’t read any of Jane’s books, but want to. If I have to pick one of the three, I’d say The Marriage Wager is the one I’m most interested in. I like that Emma is willing to challenge someone to help out her brother. :-)

  4. Jane Ashford says:

    Thank you, Jeanne! So good to hear you’ve enjoyed them.

  5. Jeanne Miro says:

    Hi Mia and Jane!

    Mia –
    I was thrilled to see that you invited Jane over so more readers could be introduced to her books! It’s so wonderful to see that her books are available again! I can still remember when one of her stories was released years ago but by the time I got to the bookstore they had sold out and “back in the day” once they were gone there was no Amazon to go to get a copy of the book! If the bookstore had to “special order” a copy for you there was a fee charged!

    I was thrilled to see that Amazon had both Once Again a Bride and Man of Honour available for my Kindle and had been re-relased last year! Finally I have a chance to read Jane’s wonderful book – just one more time!

    Anyone who hasn’t had the delight of reading one of her books is going to love reading her stories! They are all a “must read”!

  6. Maggie Eaton says:

    I have read the Marriage Wager, I loved it. Excited at a chance for more of your books.

  7. Jessica V says:

    Jane is a new author for me. Man of Honor sounds exactly like something I’d love to read. I like reading about characters discovering love that they didnt know was there/ or that they refused to acknowledge.

  8. Quilt Lady says:

    You are a new author to me and I just want to say I love your covers on your books. They are beautiful and the books sound awesome. I can’t wait to read them. I do love historicals.

    1. Jane Ashford says:

      I know. Aren’t the cover gorgeous? Sourcebooks does a great job.

  9. Janice Hougland says:

    So glad for this post, Mia! And so glad for your writing, Jane! What a wonderful chance to win three of your books. Thanks mucho!

  10. Jane Ashford says:

    Thanks for having on the blog!

    1. Mia Marlowe says:

      My pleasure, Jane! Love your work.

  11. Diane Sallans says:

    No, I haven’t read Jane’s books yet – I don’t know why I haven’t run across them until recently. I would pick ‘The Three Graces’ – I love stories with siblings.

  12. bn100 says:

    New author; The Marriage Wager sounds interesting

  13. Kelly Dunn says:

    Ooh I love discovering new authors based on other author recommendations. I think the Man of Honour and the Marriage wager both sound like they would be great reads. :)
