WHAT A LADY REQUIRES By Ashlyn Macnamara

What A Lady Requires is the final book of The Eton Boys Trilogy. Our hero, Rowan Battencliffe has not been much of a hero at all in the previous books – in fact, Macnamara set herself up to climb a very steep hill to redeem this fella. Having said that, it is safe to say none of the men in The Eton Boys Trilogy were born with a hero’s hat upon his head. Getting them to that point is more than a struggle for our lovely heroines...

Cover Reveal: WHAT A LADY DEMANDS by Ashlyn Macnamara

Ashlyn Macnamara gave us her thoughts on the cover of WHAT A LADY DEMANDS, the second in the Eton Boys Trilogy. WHAT A LADY CRAVES, the first title in the trilogy is on-sale tomorrow! Find out more here “We all bear our scars. Some are more visible than others.” Cecelia Sanford, the titular demanding lady of my November release What a Lady Demands, says these words to Viscount Lindenhurst in the course of the narrative. For my hero, they are very apt. Cecelia has known this man since his youth, when he was friends with her older brother. Since his youth when his body was still perfect. Since her youth when she may have nurtured a tendre for him. But that was before life—and the Napoleonic Wars—intervened. Lind returns from the final confrontation… Continue

Guest Post: The Great Hero Debate by Ashlyn Macnamara

Historical or contemporary—which genre has better heroes? I decided to find out by doing an informal poll of my author friends. While the sampling below his hardly scientific, here are the results of my survey. Author of racy Regency romps, Valerie Bowman (Secrets of a Runaway Bride, available now) is quite adamant in her choice. “Historical heroes FTW!” she says. “They are hands down hotter. My particular favorite is Jason Fielding from Judith McNaught’s Once and Always. He’s smoking hot, a bit tortured, speaks in an English accent, knows how to rock a cravat, owns a giant country estate and a fleet of trading ships. And oh yeah, he’s a freakin’ MARQUESS. The end.”

In a sense, this is Jane Austen’s fault. When Emma fell in love with her long-time friend Mr. Knightley, one might say a sub-genre was born. Only Emma didn’t realize what was happening at first, did she? And therein lies the fun with Miss Woodhouse blithely trying to set her acquaintances up and Mr. Knightley telling her to mind her own business until, through jealousy, realization strikes.

I also have a personal stake in this topic, since I was friends with my husband before I married him. I think there’s something special about
