Alexa Aston, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.
Thea (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 3) by Alexa Aston
Genre: Regency romance
Book heat level: PG13
He’s a virgin who almost died at Waterloo… and now finds himself a duke.
She’s been told that kissing is important and if she likes a man and has the opportunity… she should take it.
Lady Thea de Wolfe breaks her leg, causing her to miss her first London Season, one in which her sister, Diana, becomes the Countess of Merrifield and Thea’s best friend, Amelia, weds Thea’s brother, Lord Reston. Seeing those closest to her find love has led Thea to dare to dream of the possibility of love coming to her.
Major Adam Ashbury arrives home from war to discover his cousin recently died in a phaeton accident, making Adam the new Marquess of Trumbull. Before he can get used to having a title, his uncle dies and the former military man finds himself woefully unprepared to be the Duke of Durham. Adam can’t even dance–but he longs to find a duchess and create a new life for himself, one in which family and love play equally important roles.
A funeral first brings Adam and Thea together, followed soon by a house party, where their growing attraction finds fertile ground to blossom. Though other single women vie for new duke’s attention and Thea’s guardian is determined to keep her from kissing anyone before she makes her come-out, true love runs its natural course for the pair.
Thea is Book 3 in The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle and a part of the De Wolfe Pack Connected World. It can be read as a standalone. Only 99 cents!
*Look for Diana and Derek, the romances for Thea’s siblings, which also read as standalones.
Why did you write this book?
I had been asked to write in Kathryn Le Veque’s de Wolfe Connected World and decided to do three novellas that told the stories of three de Wolfe siblings during the Regency Era. Diana was released in July. She won the heart of Lord Oliver Merrifield, a dashing, delightful man who’d won my heart (and readers)–but he hadn’t gotten an HEA of his own. Derek released in August and was the next de Wolfe to find his soulmate. Now, it’s Thea’s turn to find a dashing duke and lasting happiness.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy reading thrillers most of all, but I recently enjoyed reading Lost Roses for my monthly book club. It focuses on the lives of three women during World War I. As a former history teacher, I gobble up anything historical!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
A character who always continues to move me is Atticus Finch.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve just finished up Books 4 and 5 for my St. Clairs series. Defending the Duke releases October 8 and Suddenly a St. Clair comes out December 3. That will wrap up this Regency romance series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Defending the Duke and Suddenly a St. Clair are the last two novels I’m publishing in 2019; however, I have a Christmas novella featuring Luke and Caroline St. Clair in the upcoming collection Stars are Shining Brightly. It features ten Dragonblade Publishing authors and can be preordered now for 99 cents. https://amzn.to/2k00tpY
