Known for her adventurous romances within the Falcon Club series, Ashe takes on a slower, more character-driven story as a country miss and a jaded spy join forces. Though some readers will miss the pulse-pounding action, others will savor the powerful emotions and nicely plotted and paced romance.

Falcon Club member Wyn Yale is no hero. He’s on a mission to steal a horse, avenge a death and possibly meet the hangman, when he rescues Diantha Lucas. What he doesn’t know is that she’s all trouble and temptation. Diantha has just discovered that her long missing mother is a brothel owner in Calais, and she’s determined to find her. Wyn, a rescue specialist, agrees to be her traveling companion. In truth, he plans to return her to her family. Wyn realizes she’s stubborn, and her determination ignites a spark within him. He begins to grow into a better man. As Wyn aids Diantha in her quest, he finds his chance for absolution — and love. (AVON, Oct., 384 pp., $7.99)
