New Release - The Book of Love

The Book of Love is now available everywhere in print and ebook.

This is a longer novel (around the length of Sympathy for the Devil). It's $4.99 in ebook and $10.49 in print (USD).



Romance editor Janaeh Forrester is a problem solver. A Jill of all trades, she’s worked in all aspects of publishing and no challenge is too big for her to overcome. It’s this reputation that leads her new employer to send her after the elusive Delilah Daniels, their top selling romance writer, who won’t deliver her latest manuscript and made the last editor quit. 

But “Delilah” is nothing that Janaeh expects. It’s the pen name of Carter Daniels, a thirty-something man as sexy as he is arrogant and frustrating. 

Six months have passed since Carter’s divorce was finalized and writing happily-ever-afters seems like a lie he can no longer tell. When Janaeh shows up at his door with a schedule in hand and threats to take back his advance if he doesn’t meet his deadlines, he assumes it’s a joke. But his attractive new editor is there to see that he finishes the book, driving him mad with both irritation and desire. 

Her presence stirs up something far more sinister, however: Janaeh is directly in the path of Carter’s more fanatical followers, and someone will stop at nothing to get her out of the way.

Summer Sale - WILD HORSES

I can't believe it's been three years since Wild Horses was first released!

This was my first romantic suspense story and why I fell in love with writing the genre--if not for Wild Horses, I might not've started Midsummer Suspense Tales and The Book of Love (which is out Friday--my THIRTEENTH release!). In case you've missed it, this short novel is on sale for the month of June for 99c.




Popular blogger Danyiah Jackson is known for finding the humor in anything—until some of her fan mail turns threatening and a stalker makes it clear he’s been watching her. She grudgingly accepts the advice of a threat assessment expert and disappears from the online world, taking temporary refuge at a family friend’s quarter horse ranch in the country.

Head horse wrangler Adam Cooper isn’t thrilled about the smart-mouthed young woman suddenly living and working at the ranch—even if she’s drop dead gorgeous. But their verbal sparring sets his body ablaze and gets his heart racing, and he’s drawn to her despite his misgivings.

As Danyiah and Adam fight their attraction, however, her stalker draws near, putting not only their fledgling love but their lives on the line.

Release Date: September 2013 (originally published June 2012)
Genre: IR (bwwm) romantic suspense 
Length: short novel (48K words or 150 pages) 
Series: Stirling Falls

New Pre-Order: MIDSUMMER SUSPENSE TALES VOL I

The first Midsummer boxset will be out July 10 if you missed the three novels the first time--this is CINDERS, BEAUTY, and SNOW all gathered into one bundle.
In the sleepy hamlet of Midsummer, the people seem friendly and peaceful. But when dusk falls, the town's dark underbelly is exposed. Danger lurks around every shadowed street corner, where neighbors are not who they seem and true love's happily ever after is never guaranteed. 


Welcome to Midsummer Tales, Asha King's new fairytale-inspired romantic suspense series.


CINDERS - Things haven’t been the same since the death of Gina Cassidy’s father. It thrust her under the rule of her cruel stepmother and turned the family bakery into something unrecognizable. But now Gina’s an adult, not a frightened child, and she has a plan: figure out what secrets her stepmother has been hiding and how it relates to her father’s death once and for all.

BEAUTY - Bryar Rosings was raised in the country by her aunts, isolated from the world at large. Her birth family remains a mystery to her, secrets kept hidden away to prevent a dangerous foe from locating her. A chance encounter with troubled former pop star Sawyer and a viral video kicks into motion a decades’ old grudge that threatens not only their love but their lives.

SNOW - Stoic and efficient, personal security expert Michael O’Hara is cautious in all things—both work and women—and has built a reputation in the private sector as the top of his field. But though he thinks he’s seen it all, nothing has prepared him for keeping murder witness Liliana White safe.


Release Date: July 10, 2015
Genre: IR (bwwm) contemporary romantic suspense
Length: three short novels (139K words or 420 pages)
Series: Midsummer Suspense
Format: ebook
Ebook Price: $7.99

Preorder: THE BOOK OF LOVE

I'm pleased to announce that my new novel The Book of Love is up for preorder on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, ARe, and iTunes.

This is a contemporary romance about a jaded romance writer and his new editor, with some elements of humor and a bit of suspense. It's a full-length novel, about 70 000 words (around the length of Sympathy for the Devil). The official release date is June 5.

It will also be available in paperback early May.

There is a brief excerpt from when I was writing it last year available here.

In July, the first Midsummer Suspense Tales boxset will release. I am aiming for I WHO HAVE NOTHING to release at last around September or so, depending on how writing it goes. Toward the end of the year, I'd like to get written and released STRAY CAT STRUT and possibly BEAST. Sales of SNOW haven't been too bad so I'll look at the numbers in the fall and decide if the series is continuing. Thank you to everyone who has purchased it so far.
