Wyn Yale has been making appearances in Ashe's books for a while now and I have been looking forward to getting to know the charming, drunk spy. I will warn you, this was not what I expected.

For those that discount the story and believe that everything was cured by love obviously haven't read it. In her Acknowledgments section, Katharine recognizes many doctors and others who prefer to remain anonymous that she spoke to about alcoholism and treatment. In this story, we see Wyn's struggle with al

12% of the way in.

So far, Diantha is TSTL to the nth degree. I do not find über-naive and earnest heroines charming. I find them to be nincompoops. And I wonder why anyone wants to spend their time and/or money reading about their festivals of stupidity. Let's review Diantha's goal as stated so far: she wants to find her long-lost mother, who Diantha believes is running a brothel in Calais. And then have a season in London and settle down to a respectable marriage.

Yeah, because showing up at a b

Hoy me toca hablar de un libro que publicó en edición de bolsillo Ediciones B, en el mes de marzo. En colaboración con ellos, me embarqué en esta nueva aventura literaria.


Yo he leído este libro sin haber leído los libros anteriores. Y más o menos he seguido el hilo de la historia. Pero al principio me vi muy perdida porque había muchas subtramas que no entendía, muchos personajes que no conocí

Review: Just place Katharine Ashe’s name on the cover of a book and you know that there is going to be magic between the pages.

I believe that Katharine Ashe has a magical wand where she sits like the fairy godmother in CINDERELLA and waves it over her keyboards. To believe that Katharine doesn’t poses super powers when she writes is like saying the earth doesn’t rotate around the sun. Do you rember when you were a child and you were asked, “When you grow up who would you like to be like?" I’

This is the 4th book in the Falcon Club series and also the start of it’s own series, The Devil’s Duke. As the beginning book in a series, it is an exciting start and I’m eager to read the next one. As the 4th book in the Falcon Club series, it is confusing and frustrating as it does not offer the reader any opportunity for recall but jumps right in as if the last book in that series was published months ago instead of over three years ago. Due to this fact, I not only found myself completely lo ...more
Se ha quedado en entretenido, de la trilogía me quedo, sin dudarlos con el segundo.
Este empieza muy bien, aunque luego se ralentiza y hay una parte que se me ha hecho algo lenta. El problema del alcoholismo de él resulta bastante interesante y la protagonista es, cuando menos, inusual... quizás demasiado inocente, para luego espabilarse rápidamente.
La historia en general resulta un tanto absurda... pero eso no es algo que me disguste realmente... he leído historias mucho más absurdas que me han

DNFed at 11%. The author can turn a phrase beautifully. But I have zero interest in silly, virginal young misses who secretly thrill dark-spirited rogues. And in fact, I hate that kind of gender role play where womanly sweetness and warmth cures masculine cold-heartedness.

Also, two crappy mothers (his is dead and hers ran away and became a brothel madam in France.) And the hero is an alcoholic who hasn’t eaten in three days.

Pse, entretenida y poco mas. Me ha gustado Wyn y como deja de beber por ella.

Miss Diantha Lucas has set upon a quest to find the mother that abandoned her when she was a child, she has two weeks to get to France before her family realise she has gone and come after her. However, it soon becomes apparent on the road that she needs a hero, someone to protect her from untoward advances and to guide her safely on her journey and when she recognises Mr Wyn Yale, she knows she has found her hero. But Wyn is no ones hero, drowning his guilt over a past deed in drink, when he se ...more

Ashe has given readers two completely engaging characters in Diantha and Wyn. Most readers will recognize that the innocent beauty with a kind heart, and an underappreciated intelligence whose naïveté adds to her charm as a romance heroine who perhaps made her first appearance in novels by Georgette Heyer. Diantha is a delightful example, true to type and yet appealing as an individual. Despite some grim elements in her history, she possesses a contagious joy that lightens Wyn’s darkness and to ...more

This review is from: How a Lady Weds a Rogue: A Falcon Club Novel (Mass Market Paperback)
When reading How a Lady Weds a Rogue, I was astonished with the witty and seductive writing by the author. She has done it again with her Falcon Club series. I like reading about fellow club members who have made love matches. Now it's Wyn Yale's turn and he doesn't disappoint. I remember him from the recent books and was so glad to read about him again. Wyn has been a secret ag

Me encantan los protagonistas de este libro, ella sobre todo es muy genial, no la típica jovencita de temporada londinense. Es una chica especial y el personaje masculino, pobrecillo, aguanta el acoso y derribo con bastante elegancia xD.
Me está gustando mucho esta saga (quitando el primer libro, por lo que ya comenté en su momento :__D), espero de verdad que la editorial española no nos deje la historia a la mitad, que aún quedan dos miembros del Club Falcon por contarnos sus correrías amorosas

Rectifying AAR's lapse in NEVER REVIEWING THIS AMAZING BOOK with a new review of my own.

WYN YALE remains my favorite historical hero. Friends, I worried I wouldn't love this book as much the second time around.................................................

Delightful and very well-written. Couldn't stop thinking about hero after I finished the book which for me is always a good sign. A different spin on Regency romance and very refreshing. Highly recommend, and of course, the lovely Katharine Ashe makes it all worthwhile.

Loved, loved, loved this book. I devored it on one night. The hero and heroine were perfect foils for one another. Their challanges were believable. How could one not fall for Wyn? I can't wait for Ms. Ashe's next book.

Always knew I’d love this book, have always enjoyed the character of the H, and the h had been interesting in the prior book. They did not disappoint. He is a very damaged man, with a sad childhood and a tragic incident in his professional career, she’s been hurt by her own mother, and has self esteem issues. Together they’re both better people and passion is inevitable. It was somewhat painful getting to the happy ending, but well worth the journey. I’m still not overfond of the entire Falcons ...more

I think this was my favorite in the series (so far).

I love that the characters aren't perfect. Both Wyn and Diantha have very real, very relatable issues. I was drawn into their relationship and loved every aspect of the story. It is funny and filled with emotion that pulled me in and held me until the very end.

My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed:

Diantha Lucas is in need of a hero. Over four years ago, her mother left home under dark circumstances no one has ever told Diantha about. Now Diantha has discovered that her mother is running a brothel in Calais and for very personal reasons Diantha is determined to speak with her. If it means she has to take off from the manor home of a friend and travel to France by herself, then so be it. But her journey w

Originally reviewed at Thoughts Stained With Ink:

I usually devour romance books. Averaging around 400ish pages, they are easy to read in one sitting, with their soft prose and predictable, general plotlines: soon-to-be-couple meets, they either immediately like each other or immediately hate one another, then they fall in love, they get busy, they get angry after not being honest with one another, they almost split and then they get married. Personally, I don’t mind the repetitiveness of the gen

Guys, cold days and busy times at work always make me crave a good romance to just get lost in. And Katharine Ashe hasn't failed me in delivering exactly this!

Diantha was a minor character earlier on in the series and while I wasn't particularly invested in her then, I'm glad she got her own story! I love that Diantha went after what she wanted while stretching the boundaries of what a woman in that time could do. She charms her way around most problems and I kinda liked that. Of course I though

I have been awaiting Wyn Yale's story since first meeting him as a member of the Falcon Club. His charm, his gentle nature with women, and his tortured soul drew me immediately and in HOW A LADY WEDS A ROGUE, he is everything I expected and hoped he'd be. Even more tortured by the sense of responsibility he has for Diantha and his loyalty to her family, Wyn finds himself battling his own needs for both Diantha and the bottle. In an attempt to keep his wits around Diantha and to protect her from ...more

“Can—” She caught her lip in her teeth. “Can you tell me . . . ? How does one breathe?”
Very unsteadily while those eyes gazed up at him. “Breathe?”
“While kissing.”
Not easy. He tried to moderate his voice. “In the usual manner, I imagine.”
Her slender brows dipped.
“At opportune moments,” he suggested.
Her lips twisted up in that manner he both dreaded and longed for.
“Through one’s nose, perhaps,” he said, because his only refuge was to continue speaking or to walk away.
“Really?” She appeared unconvinced.

And so, because her skepticism suited his need to have her lips beneath his again, he showed her how one breathed while kissing. To her soft gasp of surprise, he took her waist in his hands, bent to her mouth, and kissed her in truth this time. Her lips were warm and still, and then not still as he felt her eager beauty, tasted her, and made her respond.

She held back at first, and then she gave herself up to it. Her mouth opened to him as though by nature, offering him a sweet breath of the temptation within. If he’d gone seeking an innocent with more ready hunger he could not have found her. But he had not wanted an innocent. He’d wanted no one, yet here he was with his hands on a girl he could not release, his tongue tracing the seam of sweet, full lips that she parted for him willingly.
“Now, breathe,” he whispered against those lips, then he sought her deeper. She made sounds of surrender in the back of her throat. He wanted to run his hands over her body, to pull her to him and make her know what a real kiss could be.

“Breathe.” God, she smelled so good. He could press his face against her neck and remain there simply breathing her. But he feared that if he enjoyed much more of Diantha Lucas he would be in a very bad way when it came to giving her over to her stepfather and subsequently her intended. A very bad way indeed. And she didn’t deserve it. Rule #9: A gentleman must always place a lady’s welfare before his own.

She slipped her tongue alongside his, gasped a little whimper of pleasure, and he coaxed her lips open and showed her more than how to breathe. He showed her how he wanted her.

It was a pity for Miss Lucas’s welfare that no gentleman could be found here, after all.”
