Storm’s younger cousin.

Vandal’s little brother.

You’ve met him in the background.

The sweet one.

The nice one.

The one they can all rely on.

The good one.

He’s a tattoo artist.  He plays metal and classical music – on the violin.

He’s got a body built for sin.

He’s 24.

In comes Ivy. She’s a 36 year old single mom who hasn’t dated in 18 years.

All she wanted was a tattoo.

She got a helluva lot more  🙂

Being good has never been so bad.

About the Author:

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, was published in September of 2014 and book 2, Vandal, was published in February 2015 with several more of this series planned throughout 2015.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.


Michelle’s Review – ♥♥♥♥♥ Lukas loving hearts

Ah heck she did it again. How can anyone fail not to love Lukas? He is literally everyone’s ideal man rolled into my glory of a body! His exterior is nothing like his interior, this man can melt dry ice he’s that swoon-worthy! He’s got the perfect mind for romance and isn’t afraid to show and the perfect body for sin and the tats for bad boy lovers amongst us. How can I love all of the characters from Ashes and Embers but I do, each one brings it and brings it with a boom!

And come on what’s there not to like about Ivy? You can’t but help feel sorry for her from the get-go, what her asshole of a husband did, unforgiveable, what she then has to live through, the doubt, the lack of confidence, it was all spot on.

Now I hand on heart am not a lover of ‘older woman’ romances, there are a few books though are the exception to this rule and you guessed it, this is one of them. There was nothing immature about Lukas, nothing that would suggest he was only twenty four, he was older than his years and he completely came across like that too.

There are dilemma’s that go on in this book that have you questioning whether you’d do or react the same as the characters, and I loved that. I honestly think I would have reacted exactly the same if it happened to me. The ending is slightly rushed if I’m really going to be uber honest, but the outcome perfect. That epilogue, A-Mazing!

The other thing I absolutely loved about this book was the timeline, oh it was brilliant to be on the same timeline pretty much as Storm in book one. It touched on things we’d read about in the previous books but also didn’t at the same time, as in it was touched on very differently. Brilliantly done.

That’s it, I knew I loved Carian’s work before but yep, I’m a diehand fan of her writing. I bloody love it, can’t wait for the rest of what’s coming, not sure how I’m going to be with Talon – wink, wink. But oh I bet it’s bloomin good!
