About Burning Ash:
No one is more surprised than Asher, one of the oldest vampires on Earth, that he’s attracted to vamp hunter Jo Radcliffe. She’s smart, a talented slayer, and she’s gorgeous. Something about her pulls at him, like no one ever has before. For a man, whose name strikes fear in everyone––this is something new and intriguing. And quite possibly deadly, if she discovers his secret.
Jo has two things in common with the handsome Asher––they are both slayers and someone is messing with them in a very-much-trying-to-kill-them way. She’s not so happy about joining forces with a dude she doesn’t know. But he’s sexy as hell and really good at his job as one of the Forgotten Brotherhood, whose business it is to execute misbehaving paranormals.
She knows she’s bait in a larger plot to harm Asher and the Brotherhood. And there is nothing he won’t do, no line he won’t cross, to keep her safe––which may be the weakness that destroys them both.

Jo disappeared into the building. The taste of her lingered on his lips. The scent of her arousal teased his nostrils.
Kissing her might not have been smart, but it was essential. He’d had to taste her lips. They were sweet and soft, the complete opposite of the tough, kickass woman he’d spent the past dozen or so hours with.
She was competent, intelligent, and complex.
She was also lying about where she lived. But she was so smooth and smart about it—following another woman into the building—it would have been easy to be misled. He admired her tenacity and street smarts. His hunter was clever not to lead him to her home. Still, it had to be nearby.
She probably planned to slip out a back exit. Without delay, he went down the nearby alley, moving quickly through the shadows. He came around the end of the building just in time to catch a glimpse of her duffle bag going around a corner.
The chase was on.
Using his preternatural speed, he kept her in sight, ducking out of the way when she turned several times. She sensed someone following. Her instincts were well honed, but he was better.
The sun had drifted behind a cloud, for which he was grateful. His eyes were sensitive to light. So was his skin. He might not burst into flames in the daylight, but he’d never be able to walk around with this shirt off at the height of summer either. Not without incurring a serious burn. Still, it was better than the alternative.
Rather than going straight to her apartment, she circled the neighbourhood several times before finally entering a building. He followed, not needing a key to open the doors. The force of his mind was enough to handle these simple locks.
Her footsteps were light as she headed up a flight of stairs and down a corridor. A door open and shut. He waited several more seconds before turning the corner and coming face to face with the barrel of a 9mm.
“You going to shoot?” He laughed.
“I should. It would serve you right.” Counter to her words, she removed her finger from the trigger and shoved the gun back into the shoulder holster before picking up the bag at her feet. “It was you trailing me, wasn’t it?”
“Guilty. You’d never take me to your home.” She was too smart for that.
They weren’t that different when it came down to it. Being distrustful kept them alive.
“But you followed me anyway.” She strolled down the hall to the last door on the right. Keys in hand, she disengaged the locks.
“I needed to make sure you were okay.” It was almost a compulsion at this point. He stuck his big foot in the doorway, to keep her from slamming it in his face. “I’m sorry if I scared you.”
She gave a snort of derision as she tossed the bag on the sofa and faced him, defiance in every line of her body. “Takes more than that to scare me. Well, you coming? You’re no vampire. Not like you need an invitation.”
If she only knew.
