eA Prince Catchers Novele
By Katharine Ashe
“Readers are in for a riotous good time in this Regency-set game of Clue… Ravenna and Vitor’s banter sparkles with wit and flirtation… A strong plot and exceptional dialogue will appeal to mystery fans as well as romance readers.”
— Publishers Weekly
Once upon a time a soothsayer foretold a glorious future for three orphaned sisters: one of them would marry a prince! On that day, the mystery of their past would be revealed. Award-winning author Katharine Ashe returns with a sensational second installment in the delectable Prince Catchers series in I ADORED A LORD ( Avon ; 7/29/2014; Paperback ISBN: 9780062229830; $5.99). Who is the mystery Prince Charming, and which sister will be his bride? Only time will tell…
When a wealthy young prince is looking for a bride, it’s only expected that the ladies from the finest families in England gather at his castle to choose who will be his princess. Dragged along to the event by her persistent sisters, hoydenish wallflower Ravenna Caulfield is much more interested in animal doctoring than prince catching.
When a handsome stranger kisses her senseless in the stable, the party suddenly gets interesting. Ravenna can’t possibly ignore their chemistry, or high society’s scheming maidens competing for the prince’s hand in marriage. Snowbound in a luxurious castle with a delectable lord? Lord Vitor Courtenay is far too distracting, making it impossible for her to think of anything—including her future—but him.
Adventurer, warrior, master of disguises, and former monk, Vitor has a single purpose at the castle: to protect his princely half-brother from an assassin, all while playing babysitter to the potential brides. After a man is murdered, a dog worth thousands in gold goes missing, and Ravenna and Vitor find themselves wrapped in a mystery they’re perfectly paired to solve. But the closer they get to the murderer, and the more perilous their mission, the more Ravenna seems to end up in Vitor’s arms. As for the mystery of love, he’s not about to let her escape until he’s gotten what exactly he desires…

I ADORED A LORD by Katharine Ashe is interesting Regency Historical Romance. Book #2 “The Prince Catchers”, but can be read as a stand alone. See, “I Married the Duke”.
Fast paced, tale of three orphaned sisters, whom it was foretold, one of them would marry a Prince, in which their past would be revealed, and the mystery of their parents.
This is Ravenna Caulfield and Lord Vitor Courtenay’s story and what a story!
Fast paced with a delectable Lord, and a Princess in waiting. A bit of danger, lots of romance and passion. A dog kidnapping, a murder, and lots of sex and mystery, is sure to have you turning pages. A deliciously wicked, sinful tale of the mystery of love, romance and sensual encounters! I love this series, and can hardly wait for the next installment. Breathlessly waiting to see what the mystery of the delightful sisters’ past are and why the mystery. Once again, Ms. Ashe has written a tale that is filled with adventure, and mystery. Well done! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
