A Falcon Club Novel (The Falcon Club #2)

“You’ll be swept away by Katharine Ashe’s evocative writing.”
Following her sensational debut novel, Swept Away by a Kiss, author Katharine Ashe was named one of the “New Stars of Historical Romance” by the American Library Association publication Booklist. With each new book she has proven them right—and never more so than with her novel How to be a Proper Lady. Continuing her phenomenal Falcon Club series, Ashe enchants with this tale of a woman kidnapped as a child by pirates and returned years later to her English family. She must now learn how to be a cultured lady...and to navigate the treacherous waters of love with the notorious sea captain who brought her, kicking and screaming, back to society. This is witty, emotionally rich, and wonderfully imaginative storytelling that readers of Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James, and Johanna Lindsey will absolutely adore.
