    “Been There. Slain That.

    Ashe Carver is one kick-ass monster killer – and she has the scars to prove it. But faced with a custody battle for her ten-year-old daughter, Eden, she’s hung up her stakes and taken a job at the public library, determined to show the courts and her ten-year-old daughter that she’s as good a mother as she is a hunter.

    Easier said than done. There are lovelorn vampires haunting the library, a slime demon in the shopping mall, and her new-mom sister needs a hand with her ghostbusting biz. Then, after centuries guarding a supernatural prison, Captain Reynard strides into her world like a hero from the library’s Must Reads. Smokingly gorgeous, passionate and courageous to a fault, he has only weeks to live unless Ashe finds the thief who took his soul.

    Ashe picks up her weapons to save the day—but not every problem can be solved with a stake. With so much tragedy in her past, Ashe fears the disaster she sees ahead—and prays she doesn’t fail everyone. Again.

    Memories are the hardest monsters to kill.”

    My Thoughts:

    This is the third book in Sharon Ashwood’s The Dark Forgotten series. Ashe Carver is a wonderfully rich and complex character who steals the show, which is a good thing seeing as how the book is about her. The chemistry between her and Reynard is magnetic and I was flipping pages deep into the night to find out what would happen next!

    I loved that Sharon Ashwood created a character who is a single mom, facing all the challenges that come with going through the adjustments of being a single parent and the heartbreak involved in going through a custody battle. Wonderfully written, this book has action, romance, suspense, danger, mystery, complex emotions, loyalty, bravery, and humor mixed in with some totally bad-a$$ paranormal badies and one really sexy, strong, courageous man.

    I am so looking forward to more books in this series as Sharon has created a really detailed world in which I love to dwell for a few hours at a time. I highly recommend this book to fans of super sexy, dark in a good way, action packed paranormal romance!

    Scorched – Spotlight & Review


    Scorched by Sharon Ashwood

  • Paperback: 384 pages
  • Publisher: Signet (MM) (Dec 1 2009)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0451228642
  • ISBN-13: 978-0451228642
  • Book Description:

    “Welcome to the castle. The price of admission is your soul.

    Ex-detective Macmillan has a taste for bad girls, but his last lover really took the cake–and his humanity. Now a half-demon, Mac’s lost his friends, his family, and his job.

    Then a beguiling vampire asks for his help to find her son. Suddenly, Mac has a case to work–one that leads him deep into the supernatural prison where Mac learns that cracking the case will cost him his last scrap of humanity.

    Fiery, vulnerable Constance will do anything for those she loves, including Mac. He’ll be damned if he turns his back on her… and a demon forever if he doesn’t.”

    My Thoughts:

    The second book in Sharon Ashwood’s The Dark Forgotten series grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go. Mac and Constance heat up the pages, kick some serious butt and defy a lot of odds. Both main charcters have a lot to deal with internally, in coming to grips with their paranormal natures, as well as externally, in dealing with the people who matter to them and the situations they are in. We also get to “see” a bit more of Holly and Alessandro, the main characters from the first book, Ravenous. I really liked that they were worked into this story because I always wonder what “happens” to characters after their book is done. 🙂 

    Gripping, suspenseful, funny at times, and filled with a myriad of amazing charcters and plot, the story weaving is excellent! The castle and every other location that Sharon Ashwood writes about just oozes atmosphere and you feel like you’re there with the characters.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Unchained to hit stores in July 2010. Any fans of both Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance will find this to be an awesome book and series to follow.
