It’s that time again! A new month and a fresh spotlight on an author we are currently gaga over – Madeline Ash.
With the release of Her Cowboy King in July, as well as the up-coming release of His Billionaire Bride, out September 3rd, we couldn’t think of a better author to spotlight than Madeline Ash.
We adore her books and think they deserve more attention! She also just so happens to be a lovely human being that’s been so kind to us during the start of our bookish blogging journey.
Author Spotlight: Madeline Ash
Madeline is a contemporary romance author who has always lived in Melbourne. She is a two-time RITA Award finalist and winner of Australia’s Romantic Book of the Year award (RUBY). She is a proud member of Romance Writers of Australia and meets with her critique group once a month.
Madeline is emotionally allergic to spontaneity, and yet doesn’t mind the weather that drags her into rain when she’s planned for sunshine. She likes to call this her wild side. She’s a Virgo, vegan, and once had a romantic suspense-style dream in which the hero was a shredded lettuce sandwich and the villain was a cherry tomato. The tomato got away. She took the dream as a sign that she’d better stick to writing contemporary romance.
Her stories have strong heroines, compassionate heroes, and as much dialogue as she can cram in. As for why she writes romance, she’s in a long-term relationship with the genre and writing such stories makes it happy.
HER COWBOY KING
THIS BOOK. The Jaroka brothers gave us the FEELS. Honestly, this was such an unexpected read. We ADORED it and read it practically in one sitting. We were so pleasantly surprised. The combination of likeable characters, witty banter and an abundance of tropes that we can’t resist left us with no response other than: YES YES YES.
THE MORGAN SISTERS
The Wedding Obsession – If you’re looking for a book that’s emotional, beautifully written and thought-provoking then this is for you. This made us consider the unexpected emotional impact of organ transplantation and the stigmatism associated with survivor’s guilt. A truly memorable read.
His Billionaire Bride – One of our favourite opposites-attract romances of the year featuring a savvy, independent businesswoman and delightfully charming artist. We couldn’t put this book down and fell completely head-over-heels for the creative Edwin Prince. His hair, his charm, his kindness. His everything. This is a story you don’t want to miss!
RAGS TO RICHES
The Playboy – A Byron-Bay opposites-attract romance featuring a sexy, playboy surfer and wealthy actress. When Parker and Alexia reconnect the sparks fly in an off-the-charts sweet and steamy novella read. This is the perfect summer beach read that not only showcases believable characters but the quintessential Aussie lifestyle.
The Playboy is currently FREE on a promotional sale on Amazon. If you’ve been unsure about giving Rags to Riches a try, this is the perfect opportunity. You genuinely cannot go wrong with a free read! Especially with this author. Enjoy!
Her Secret Prince – What happens when your long-lost love turns up ten years too late? This charming, delightful read quickly captured our attention and hearts. A royal-romance trope, this novella ticked all of the right boxes and was the perfect blend of loveable characters and royal drama in a second-chance romance.
You For Christmas – A charming Christmastime story about a hardened woman seeking refuge in a town she once turned her back on. Having faced the harsh realities of life and trauma at a young age, Regan finds refuge in Felix, the man who she helped all of those years ago. Opposites attract in this sweet, swoon-worthy novella.
Breaking Good – A sweet second-chance romance about lost love, the battle against mental illness and the painful consequences of lost time. This story melted our hearts and won us over with its honest, imperfect characters. An emotional, truly beautiful story about reconnecting with your past and fighting for a future.
