Synopses & Reviews
“Her characters are intelligent, vibrant and wonderfully complex. Katharine Ashe writes with eloquence and power.”
—New York Times
bestselling author Lisa Kleypas
Katharine Ashe is poised to become the next superstar of historical romance fiction, having already garnered enthusiastic praise from some of the genres elite—including Lisa Kleypas, Kat Martin, and Sabrina Jeffries. With Captured by a Rogue Lord, Ashe again grandly flourishes the winning mix of danger and passion with outrageous action and amazing sensuality that made her previous novel, Swept Away by a Kiss, an unadulterated delight. An unforgettable Regency romantic adventure, Captured by a Rogue Lord concerns the passionate exploits of a titled British lord and reluctant pirate endangered by his desire for an inquisitive beauty whos coming perilously close to uncovering his secret identity. If you like Johanna Lindsey you will love Katharine Ashe!

4.5 Blue Ribbon Rating “Rompalicious! … Packed full with adventure, witty repartee, an intriguing plot, wonderful characters, steamy hot love scenes and even pirates, this story is unforgettable.” Romance Junkies
CAPTURED BY A ROGUE LORD is a multifaceted, character rich novel of passion and adventure. I readily recommend CAPTURED BY A ROGUE LORD. Pirate romances have come a long way since the bodice-rippers of the olden day, and Ms. Ashe is a welcome new voice in the genre. Romance Reviews Today
She would marry no man . . .
Serena Carlyle dreams of a happily ever after. Firmly upon the shelf at twenty-five, instead she's determined to find the perfect match for her beautiful younger sister. What better prospect than their neighbor, the wealthy, rakishly handsome Earl of Savege? Now Serena can beg his help in halting a local band of smugglers. Then, one night, stealing away from yet another disappointing ball, Serena finds herself trapped alone with a stranger . . .
Until he captured her—body and soul
His kiss was irresistible, his caress unforgettable, and he hides a devastating secret. A Robin Hood upon the sea, Alex Savege is the brazen pirate Redstone, seizing the yachts of spoiled noblemen to settle an old debt. Serena needs a hero, but her heart is in the gravest danger—for it is soon to be captured by a man as skilled at seduction as he is at plunder.
