Nursing is all I ever wanted to do. Comfort the injured and heal the sick, this was always my calling. So, when I had the opportunity to learn my craft from none other than the wonderful Miss Florence Nightingale herself, a glittering future opened up before me.
And now, I am in charge of my own hospital, a young woman forging a successful and honourable career. I could not be happier, prouder or more content. I have all I ever wanted. All I have worked for, hoped for, is within my reach.
Why, then, do I find myself drawn to a wealthy businessman who just happens to be the chairman of the hospital board? Jared Blackstock may be handsome as sin, but I am a respectable, professional woman. Such dalliances are not for me. Or so I thought, until that fateful evening when he taught me exactly who is really in charge at St Barbara’s Infirmary.
Some might describe me as a philanthropist, a social reformer, even. They would be wrong. I am a man of business, a man who likes to make money and intends to continue to do so. I know full well that my wealth relies upon the labour of others. So, I pay fair wages. I educate the children of those who work for me. I even feed them and provide decent homes for their families. My workers are happy, and I prosper. I am not a do-gooder. I am simply a man who knows how to get things done.
So, when the Nurse Manager of the hospital I am trying to establish fails to take proper care of my greatest asset – herself – I will step in. Miss Grace Miller will learn that I always protect those who matter to me, whether they appreciate my efforts or not. I know what the delectable but oh-so-proper Miss Miller needs, better than she knows herself. She may fight me if she wishes, she may even fight her own desires, but I intend to emerge the victor in this battle of wills.

BIOGRAPHY Ashe whiles away her time in the wilds of West Yorkshire, in the north of England, writing smutty books and drinking Earl Grey tea. At the last count she had over fifty titles on general release, always hot, with complex characters and fast-paced, compelling plots. Ashe writes Mf, MMf and MM, contemporary and historical, sci-fi and the occasional paranormal so there’s plenty to choose from.
When not writing Ashe enjoys messing around with digital photography, reading erotic stories, pole dancing (though not especially well), walking her dogs, and listening to Bon Jovi. Loud.
