Today it is my pleasure to Welcome author Jane Ashford to HJ!

Hi Jane and welcome to HJ! We’re so excited to chat with you about your new release, A Duke Too Far!


Please summarize the book for the readers here:

A Duke Too Far is the story of a penniless duke and a lively young lady who are both grieving the death of the duke’s young sister. Miss Ada Grandison is plagued by haunting memories, and she’s sure the duke can help her find answers to the questions her friend Delia left behind. She recruits three friends and a chaperone and descends on the Duke’s crumbling castle to work on deciphering a mysterious note that Delia claimed would change everything for her family. Peter can’t quite bring himself to believe the tales of treasure he’s heard all his life. As he sees it, there’s no chance of a future with Ada, though he adores her. He won’t subject his wife to penury. With the help of Ada’s friends and a visiting earl, legends begin to unravel.

Please share your favorite quote from the book:

“Sleepwalking was such an odd thing. Almost a kind of magic. As if strange powers wafted one from place to place. And then one woke and found the fairy-tale prince and kissed him and all difficulties disappeared. Ada sighed. She hadn’t quite managed that last part yet.”


Please share a few Fun facts about this book…

  • A is for Ada, a heroine who will never give up.
  • D is for a dukedom in ruins, and a young duke who cannot afford a wife.
  • T is for treasure hunt, which could make all the difference.
  • F is for the future. Can there be one for them?


What do you want people to take away from reading this book?

I hope they have fun!


Thanks for blogging at HJ!

    My Husband, Children and Grandchildren are always there for me. Family is Everything!

  2. Lynne Brigman

    Yes, I do . There are 4 women that I know will get into all kinds of trouble right along with me.

  3. Patricia B.

    Not really. Sadly. There was never anyone my age when I grew up and in college I was younger than my classmates. As a military wife, we moved frequently. Now we retired to an area where we are outsiders. There have been friends at each stage, but not the deep friendships like these. I am very happy for our daughters because they both have just those types of friends and have stepped in multiple times to help or just enjoy their company.
