With the publication of her debut novel in 2010, Katharine Ashe earned a spot among the American Library Association's New Stars of Historical Romance. In 2011 she won the coveted Reviewers' Choice Award for Captured by a Rogue Lord, and Amazon.com rated her latest romance, How To Be a Proper Lady, an Editors' Choice Best Book of the Month. Reviewers call her writing radiant, lyrical and sensationally intelligent, and praise her lushly intense, breathtaking and thrilling love stories. Katharine lives in the wonderfully warm Southeast with her beloved husband, son, dog, and a garden she likes to call romantic rather than unkempt. A professor of European history, she has made her home in California, Italy, France, and the northern US.
