Cheyenne: Thanks so much for asking me to blog today!
What I decided to do was introduce myself and my books and then do some giveaways!
I’m Jennifer Ashley, and I write a bunch of different series (in a couple of different names):
Riding Hard (Contemp Westerns—hot cowboy stunt riders)
Mackenzies (Historicals—hot Scots in kilts)
Shifters Unbound (paranormal romance—hot shapeshifters!)
The Stormwalker series (as Allyson James; urban fantasy, starring a hot dragon hero)
The Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries (as Ashley Gardner—these are mysteries with a romance thread, and yes, the hero is hot).
If you like things uber-hot (that’s really, really, really hot), I also have the Tales of the Shareem series, about men who are created solely for the pleasure of women. (A lot of people like this series for some reason… Book 1 is Rees)
It happens that I have three current releases in three of these series:
Carter isn’t a Campbell though, he’s a foster brother adopted out of the gang territories of Houston—he came to the Circle C ranch on a foster kid program when he was a teen and stayed. Carter now has a daughter he’s raising by himself (with the help of his four brothers), and he’s in love with the town sweetheart—Grace–the girl way too good for the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. When trouble comes in the form of Carter’s past, only Grace can help him out.
Malcolm Mackenzie, one of the five wild sons of the Duke of Kilmorgan, spies Lady Mary
Lennox across a ballroom—she’s a proper young Englishwoman who is engaged to an English lord. The trouble is, the uprising surrounding Bonnie Prince Charlie is about to happen and Mary’s father and fiance are staunch supporters of the English side. Mal must find a way to capture Mary for himself, before Mary’s family and his can tear them apart. This book earned a starred review in Booklist (the best they give), and a Top Pick in RT Bookreviews.
The Thames River Murders (Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries, Book 10): Captain Lacey is an army officer injured in the Peninsula, who started investigating puzzles as a way to take his mind of his troubles when he returned to London burned out and broke.
Now he’s newly married, and has a daughter (from previous marriage) about to make her debut. He’s currently being threatened by a blackmailer whose threats turn physical; meanwhile, a friend in the Thames River Police has asked Lacey to help him solve a cold-case crime—the only evidence being a woman’s skeleton retrieved from the river ten years ago. Lacey has his hands full, but his society dandy friend, Grenville; the master criminal, James Denis; and his wife, Lady Breckenridge are happy to help out.
Another Mackenzie story is coming in November (Mackenzie Clan Gathering), which revisits the characters from The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie ten years on, with more romance and mayhem in store.
To win any book from any series you might like (print or e-), simply answer in the comments which type of romance you like to read and why. That’s it!
Thanks again, Chey!
