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?

For fans of Mary Balogh and Lisa Klepyas comes a poignant Regency romance full of secrets to reveal and a love to fight for from bestselling author Jane Ashford
Peter Rathbone, Duke of Compton, is mourning the loss of his sister Delia, but the work of keeping his family’s deteriorating estate afloat is never done. When Miss Ada Grandison, a close friend of his sister, arrives with a mysterious letter that she claims holds the secret to saving the family home, Peter is skeptical to say the least…his life is about to get even more complicated.
Ada is eager to do whatever she can to help the Rathbones. She brings clues that Delia claimed would change everything for the family and that lead Ada and Peter on a hunt to unravel the past. But they’ll have to face their painful memories—and their true feelings for each other—to discover the truth.
