Hello, I’m Madeline Ash, and I write sensitive, sexy contemporary romance.
I’m amazed to share that Breaking Good is a 2017 RITA® Award finalist in the Contemporary Romance: Short category! This news has blown me away, especially after an epic 2016, with two of my books placing as finalists in premier awards: Her Secret Prince was a finalist in the 2016 RITA® awards and You for Christmas was a finalist in the 2016 Ruby Awards. For Breaking Good to receive similar recognition goes beyond a dream come true. Thank you to the judges. I’m pretty sure I love you!
Breaking Good is the fourth and final release in the Rags to Riches series with Tule Publishing (#1 The Playboy, #2 Her Secret Prince, #3 You For Christmas, #4 Breaking Good). It’s about a bad boy desperate to be good enough for a courageous heroine.
As for what I’m working on, well, I’ve just scrapped 65k words of my manuscript to start over again. It’s going to be my first single title, and while I can’t say I’m loving the process (so many lost words!), I AM in love with the story. I hope to have news to share soon.
He wasn’t good for her. He never would be.
At eighteen, Stevie Case finally surrendered to her attraction to bad boy Ethan Rafters, sharing one night with him before she graduated and he skipped town on a one-way road to destruction.
Years later, Stevie has hit back life’s curveballs and is no stranger to hard work, but when she finds herself working for Ethan, who’s turned his life around, her world shatters not only because their chemistry is still fierce and undeniable but because fate separated them before she could tell him he has a son.
Ethan desperately wants to be a good father and a partner yet he believes he’ll never be normal. The chaos that defines his life has destroyed his relationships, yet Stevie’s acceptance of his flaws tempts him with a life he thought impossible.
Dare he risk Stevie’s life of hard-fought stability for his own chance at happiness?
