Triple Book Giveaway! Exclusive Interview with Jane Ashford~

**Three of Jane Ashford’s beloved backlist titles are now back in print! Look for Man of Honour, The Three Graces and The Marriage Wager in stores now!

For a chance to enter to win a prize package of all three of these wonderful backlist titles, leave a comment below with your email. Open to US and Canada only. 

Interview with Jane: 
1. From where do you draw inspiration for your books?

JA: In the beginning I found great inspiration in Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. Over time, my own life experiences and observations have been added into the mix.

2. What are some themes you love to write in your novels?

JA: I really like writing about two people who work through their issues to evolve an equal romantic partnership. I’m also very taken with the triumph of kindness and the importance of laughter.

3. As you've written both contemporary and historical romance, which one was more fun for you to write?

JA: Historical, definitely! I love the style and the interesting language I get to play with. Past eras also offer so many opportunities for social complications.

4. When you are writing, do you find yourself more hero-centric or heroine-centric?

JA: I used to be more heroine-centric, but lately I find myself more and more interested in the heroes.

5. If you had to pick a favorite amongst your books, which one would it be? (I know this is a tough question!)

JA: It is tough! Like choosing among your children. Since I am always trying to improve as a writer, I guess I’ll pick my new one, The Bride Insists, coming in March. Just a month now!

6. What's coming next for you?

JA: I’m finishing up a new Regency historical called Married to a Proper Stranger. It’s the story of a couple who are separated a month after their 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. As they struggle to get to know each other all over again, they find it can be quite exciting to be married to a fascinating stranger.

Jane Ashford also has a BRAND NEW book coming out in March 2014: THE BRIDE INSISTS:

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.

To Preorder The Bride Insists:

Praise for The Bride Insists
“Perfectly delightful Regency romance... Remarkably executed.” —Publishers Weekly

“Ashford captures the reader’s interest with her keen knowledge of the era and her deft writing. …a charming plot and just the right amount of sensuality.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

  6. Yay!!! Print books are awesome! I need to get these now before they're gone again. :)

  7. Hi Jane!

    I love so many of your books and I always have friends who want to borrow the "older" books you've written like Bride To Be and Charmed and Dangerous because they're not available on Amazon. Are you planning on having any of your books that are no longer like those two released for Kindles? I keep having to call my friends who "borrow" your books pass them on to other friends instead of returning them to me! If not I'm going to have to start a contest between all my friends and have them report back and which of your books travels to the most states wins!

    1. Ha! Thanks, Jeanne! I really appreciate hearing that. All my historicals will be out on Kindle and in reprints eventually. There are three more coming in the fall, after my new one The Bride Insists. And more still after that. :)

  8. Hi, Jane! You are a new-to-me author and your stories sound wonderful! Very excited to give them a try.

    Great interview!
