Tule author Madeline Ash took some time to discuss her second book in the The Morgan Sisters series, His Billionaire Bride.
Who is Edwin’s favorite artist?
His idol, David Bowie. “He is everything,” Edwin says about him. Bowie’s creativity, aesthetic, and humility aside, Edwin is also drawn to the musician’s fluid representation of identity. It’s complicated, authentic, and undefinable. In a world of categorization, Bowie always suggested a different way of being. Identity that is as untouchable as a final guitar chord—and just as magical.
What is Carrie’s prized possession?
As a self-made billionaire, Carrie lives in a luxury penthouse with the financial freedom to acquire anything her heart desires. But her heart only cares for one thing—the health and well-being of her family.
Is there an actor you would want to play Edwin?
I would love a younger Eddie Redmayne. Not only would he look the part, but he’s adept at nuance, so would be able to capture Edwin’s unique blend of strength, compassion, vivaciousness and vulnerability.
What is (Carrie’s sister) Emmie’s favorite movie and why?
Tough question! Emmie’s favorite movie will have changed from before the events of The Wedding Obsession (The Morgan Sisters book #1) due to *spoilers*. In the past, it would have been something thought-provoking like Ex Machina or The Truman Show. Now, it’s much more likely to be Return to Me—a movie with a heart transplant patient heroine and a gorgeous romance!
What are you currently reading?
A couple of things. I often pair romance with young adult fiction, so am reading Obsidio, a gripping and compelling YA sci-fi by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (it’s SO good!) as well as How to Blow It with a Billionaire, a quirky and queer erotic romance by one of my all-time favorite authors, Alexis Hall.

This interview is spot on. I can totally see Eddie Redmayne playing Edward. I have never heard of Eddie, but just seeing his pictures is how I pictured Edward in my mind. And if this book were ever turned into a movie, I can totally see a David Bowie soundtrack.
I’m so glad you agree, Janine! I think Eddie would play the role perfectly. And yes! A David Bowie soundtrack would be so perfect *sighs dreamily*
very interesting blog post. i like her most prized posession; something not able to necessarily be bought.
