5 Things with Katharine Ashe

Katharine Ashe is the award winning author of adventurous, bestselling Regency romances from Avon! But her newest novella, in the anthology At the Billionaire’s Wedding, is a romp in contemporary romance. Here, she shares with us five things you probably didn’t know about her. 1) Did you have a nickname growing up? “Katie, Katie, the Paper Cup Lady”. One day in 1st grade I was innocently sitting cross-legged on my fuzzy blue Cookie Monster mat at snack time, when my teacher asked me to pass out the paper cups for juice. Someone called me that name, and it stuck, swiftly morphing into “Katie, Katie, the Big Fat Lady”, and so on. I’m proud to say that (after decades of therapy) I have finally gotten over this trauma.

Book Reviews Week of 11/20

Otherworld Nights 5:00 pm 23 November 2014 I received a digital copy from Netgalley and Berkley in exchange for an honest review. I have to forewarn readers just beginning with this book that haven't read her previous books in this series. I highly suggest you start at the beginning otherwise you aren't going to understand and be able to appreciate how great it is to be able to have these shorts added to this anthology. For readers like me that love to see what goes on behind the scenes, what goes on when the story ends or what happens to this or that couple or person after the last page of the book is read. Otherworld Nights is a treat for readers like me because we get several of them all in one place. I totally love it. To Kiss a Dragon 5:00 pm 23 November 2014 I received a...
