“Her characters are intelligent, vibrant and wonderfully complex. Katharine Ashe writes with eloquence and power.”
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas

Katharine Ashe is poised to become the next superstar of historical romance fiction, having already garnered enthusiastic praise from some of the genre’s elite—including Lisa Kleypas, Kat Martin, and Sabrina Jeffries. With Captured by a Rogue Lord, Ashe again grandly flourishes the winning mix of danger and passion with outrageous action and amazing sensuality that made her previous novel, Swept Away by a Kiss, an unadulterated delight. An unforgettable Regency romantic adventure, Captured by a Rogue Lord concerns the passionate exploits of a titled British lord and reluctant pirate endangered by his desire for an inquisitive beauty who’s coming perilously close to uncovering his secret identity. If you like Johanna Lindsey you will love Katharine Ashe!

Twenty five years old Miss Serena Carlyle is okay with the knowledge that she is on the shelf. Her plan is to see her younger stepsister Charity marries the prefect man. She thinks their neighbor wealthy hunk Alex Savege is the right person; though a rogue he is an earl. However, Serena may not have chosen the earl if she knew about his secret life as Redstone the pirate raiding the yachts of the wealthy to help the poor. Still she asks Alex to help end ruthless smugglers from plundering the coast. He agrees, but she is unprepared for this pirate plundering her heart one kiss at a time. Although the theme of a pirate romance prate between aristocratic neighbors has been used before (see The Pirate Next Door by Jennifer Ashley), Katherine Ashe keeps it fresh due to the spinster's antics based on her premise he rejects that the earl is perfect for her stepsister. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the earl stepped into the room and never slows down as the lead couple duel with wit and love in Ms. Ashe's wonderful historical. Harriet Klausner

RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:My first clue to the quality of writing and editing of this book should have been the blurb on the back of it. The second sentence¿¿Firmly on the shelf at twenty-five, instead she¿s determined to find the perfect match for her beautiful younger sister. ¿¿has the word `INSTEAD,¿ which frankly should not be there. It makes no sense. Take the word out, and now we have a comprehensible sentence. This sentence¿¿Now Serena can beg his help in halting a local band of smugglers.¿¿left me confused and scratching my head as well. Why 'NOW'? Take that sentence out, and the blurb makes much more sense.With pirates, secret identities, and romance in the mix, this should have been an interesting and fun read. Not so. I could see the potential, but the one-dimensional characters, almost cartoonish dialogue and lack of chemistry among all the characters, failed to keep me involved. Every one of those characters could have used more development. I didn't feel `connected¿ to anything or anyone. Everything in this book fell short of the mark.I wish this story was thought through better. It was rushed, and it suffered. Not even the sex scenes, which were void of chemistry, could have saved this book. The author jumps around so often that I became dizzy at one point. I was surprised that this was not better edited.The disjointed and uninspiring dialogue, a hero and heroine with zero chemistry, and a bland plot had me skimming through this story. If I hadn't committed myself to reviewing CAPTURED BY A ROGUE LORD, I would not have bothered at all. It would have gone into DNF pile.Melanie

A vibrant heroine, a dashing, sensual and vulnerable hero all in one - I couldn't have asked for more. Adventure, mystery, well-written and just enough suspense without driving you crazy. I loved it and will probably reread every year. More, please (but with new characters!)

Loved it! Lots of great adventure on dramatic cliffs, tons of excellent chemistry between Serena and Alex. If you like the classic fairy-tales with evil step-mothers, gallant heroes, and the tough-as-nails heroines who deal with it all and come out happy in the end, you'll love this story!

The pirate Redstone and the Earl of Savege are both Alex - Alex Savege. Alex Savege and Serena Carlyle have a chance encounter and are smitten with one another. But Serena finds out that Alex is betrothed to her younger sister Charity. Is Alex and Serena's love doomed? This is a book that I won at a pirate workshop at the RT Booklovers' Convention in 2011 in Los Angeles, and I was SO excited to have won it. This was the first book of Katherine Ashe's that I'd ever read, and I was impressed by the depth of the fictional world she's created. This book is exceptionally well-written and captivating. Also, there is something incredibly alluring about a noble whose alias is a pirate who attacks the ships of other nobles. I really like that Ashe created a different kind of heroine than the supermodel run-of-the-mill sort. With delightful plot twists and a strong, saucy heroine, this is one that will keep you up long into the night, unable to stop turning pages. Now, after reading this book, I want to be captured by a rogue lord too! -Torchlight Reviews
