Two classic Regency romances by beloved bestselling author Jane Ashford celebrate the adventures of a London Season. Book summary provided by Sourcebooks Casablanca.
Widowed Lady Anabel Wyndham was married right out of the schoolroom and has never before experienced the delights of a London Season. She’s dazzled by the attention of the fascinating Sir Charles Norbury, a man whose touch seems to melt her very soul, but a notorious rake. She’s drawn to handsome friend-of-the-family Christopher Hanford and the comfort and serenity he offers. But how does one choose between two such charming suitors? Anabel is finding that love is so much more dangerous the second time around.
BRIDE TO BE
Emily Crane is the toast of the ton—and she couldn’t find it more tedious. Until she encounters the darkly sensual stranger whose life she once saved and the London Season becomes infinitely more exciting. Recently returned from the wilds of South America, Lord Richard Sheldon has only contempt for tiresome London chits, but he finds himself stunningly intrigued by the dauntless Emily Crane. When the two become embroiled in a budding scandal and are forced into an engagement, they discover a passion more dangerous than any killer…
Jane Ashford discovered Georgette Heyer in junior high school and was captivated by the glittering world and witty language of Regency England. That delight led her to study English literature and travel widely in Britain and Europe. Her historical and contemporary romances have been published in Sweden, Italy, England, Denmark, France, Russia, Latvia, Slovenia, and Spain, as well as the U.S. Twenty-six of her new and backlist Regency romances are being published by Sourcebooks. Jane has been nominated for a Career Achievement Award by RT Book Reviews. She is currently rather nomadic.

Jane Ashford Newlyweds Spotlight Tour – Review, Giveaway and Q & A with John and Mary
Married to a Proper Stranger, by Jane Ashford, is an historical romance story about rediscovery and compromise. John Bexley was sent to China on a Diplomatic mission and has finally returned after a two year journey. When he left Mary Fleming, his new bride, was sent off to stay with family. While she can’t stand her predicament and living arrangements, she does find comfort in her drawings. When Mary receives news that her husband has returned she finds herself in an awkward situation. Now she must leave her family and resume living with a man she hasn’t seen in two years. How bad could it be?
Unfortunately, Mary becomes frustrated they have difficulty re-connecting, and re-acquainting themselves. Even communicating becomes rather challenging. Now that they are together again, will they finally get the chance to discover how great they can be?
Usually Mary escapes into her sketchpad when life overwhelms her as it is a stress reliever. However, a few acquaintances of John’s are not so pleased with their likeness that it unsettles her. The last thing she wants is for there to be secrets between them. Tension rises as John is upset with a situation at work and his inability to reveal what he’s really up to. Secrets lend themselves to accidental involvement when Mary inadvertently must reveal what she has discovered. Will he admire her tenacity for justice and seeing things through? Will John’s co-workers respect her, or try to destroy her when she insists on helping? These secrets must be revealed, and when they emerge because of her drawings, families are pulled apart and lives are changed. Will they be able to have a fresh start and trust each other? This tender tale of love is a journey of self-discovery and worldly adventures.
