Jane Ashford's books are both well written and characterful. Though American, she researches well, and mostly gets it right. Very enjoyable books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Romance that Fans of Downton Abbey will Enjoy 6 Feb 2013
By L. Sell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a delightful romance with an unusual focus on the below-stairs activities of a Regency-era household as well as the typical aristocratic hero and heroine. The romance between newly widowed Charlotte Wylde and her former husband's nephew Alex Wylde actually didn't captivate me nearly as much as the one between Charlotte's maid Lucy and Ethan, a footman in Alex's home. There's also some interesting history about unrest in the countryside at the time. Reading this has made me hope other authors break out of the ton for their characters and consider featuring heroes and heroines from the working classes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute 7 Feb 2013
By Blodeuedd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It was cute, that is what I want to say, it was cute :) Adorable, sweet, yes a cute regency.

Charlotte was married to an idiot who bullied her. And he is now dead (no need to mourn him). She is a bit of a grey mouse a first who slowly comes out of her shell. She did not have it easy, she is very young, and I liked her. She was nice.

The hero, (she is his aunt, lol), Sir Alexander is, a bit harsh at times. He has a lot on his plate, but he is kind, that he is. And he does care. Their romance takes times as many other things are going on and I loved that it moved slowly. They were ...on speaking terms, sort of friends and something grew.

The plot here is that Charlotte's husband left his affairs, Oh I can't say too much but it was a mess. And then there is the mystery who he died. There is also a second romance between servants and I liked that one too as we seldom see servants falling in love.

A cute romance, with a bit of thrill in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sure to Enchant! 7 Feb 2013
By Linda Banche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jane Ashford is back! ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE, her latest Regency historical with mystery, is sure to enchant all the fans who have missed her.

Charlotte isn't sorry about the murder of her selfish, tyrannical husband--she's furious. He squandered her considerable dowry, leaving her penniless. Enter her husband's cousin Alec, who's young, kind, handsome and responsible. Everything her husband wasn't. How could she not fall in love with him?

Alec deplores his cousin's treatment of his young wife. But Charlotte is just another burden to a man already overburdened caring for his sisters, his estate, and trying to avert disaster in a countryside ripe for violence over the dislocations caused by the Industrial Revolution. But the lady is beautiful, in distress and alone, with a core of steel underlying the soft exterior. How could he not fall in love with her?

Neither Charlotte nor Alec can deny their attraction. Neither can they deny their distrust of each other as Charlotte becomes the prime suspect in her husband's murder investigation.

Ms. Ashford weaves a tale of both deceptive appearances and how adversity can make or break a person. Charlotte, married too young, cowed into submission by her rat of a husband, comes into her own as she fights the accusations and whispers against her. Alec learns not to make snap judgments when he finds Charlotte is not the mouse she appears to be.

Mystery entwines with the romance, as Ms. Ashford leads us astray on the trail of the real murderer. She concludes with an exciting abduction, chase, and rescue that depart from the usual fare while weaving in the multitude of problems facing England after Napoleon's defeat.

But Charlotte's and Alec's story is first and foremost. I think Charlotte is a little too young, but her youth makes her transformation into a self-assured woman all the more glorious. Alec is my favorite type of hero, the decent man (he's also blond--I love blond men!), who must work to overcome his initial distrust of Charlotte despite his attraction to her.

ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE is great fun. Have a good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You know, it's a love match." 2 Sep 2013
By Pure Jonel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"You know, it's a love match." Not only my favourite line of the book, but also my relationship with this amazing novel. Ashford gripped me from the first page and didn't let me go until the very last sentence. She kept me captivated throughout without relying on melodrama or out of this world events. All of the events in this novel remained completely realistic throughout. Ashford's brilliant storytelling and phenomenal descriptions draw you in and keep you there. She takes you back in time with this captivating tale of loss and love.

Not only was I enthralled with the story itself, but I felt for the heroine right from the get-go. She was such a well-developed and likeable character that your heart automatically goes out to her. The supporting cast is gradually but fully introduced. By the end of the novel no one seems like a minor character. Everyone is important in his or her own right. There were so many amazing and intriguing characters in this novel, each with their own history and future. No one was ever just a name on a page.

Overall, I got a good many giggles out of this novel. I also was gripped in suspense and had my heart go out to the characters, all of them. Everything about this novel drew me in and kept me there.

Please note that I won this book through Goodreads First Reads program.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real trad regency again at last 17 Mar 2013
By dizzheart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have always liked Jane Ashford's regencies -- interesting premises, literate writing, a good sense of place and time -- and it's good to see her back with a new tale. This one is the story of two couples, one upstairs, one downstairs. Both couples are given plenty of page time; their destinies are intertwined and their own attachments are very real -- they're not just throwaway plot contrivances. It is so refreshing to find a romance that is character-driven, not "sex by page 30" driven. I enjoyed this story and would recommend it, particularly for those tired of formulaic wallpaper regency historicals which have the hero and heroine banging each other on page one as if the Almacks assembly rooms were one giant pickup bar.
