Burning Ash (Forgotten Brotherhood Book 3) by N.J. Walters (2020)


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.

Each book in the Fury Unleashed series is STANDALONE:
* Fury Unleashed
* Arctic Bite
* Burning Ash

I needed an urban fantasy fix and this fit the bill perfectly.
I haven't read the previous books in the series but I was able to pick up the story really well. I still want to go back and read books one and two as this one was so good!
Burning Ash has a great cast of characters with strong females leads and a swoon-worthy hero. I felt I got to know Jo and asher really well as they both had strong backstories and plenty of emotional turmoil to work through.
I absolutely loved all the suspense and excitement this story generated and I can't wait to catch up on the earlier titles.

Burning Ash is out now Amazon

The Smuggler's Daughter by Kerry Barrett BLOG TOUR


The Smuggler’s Daughter: Heartwrenching and gripping historical fiction with a mystery to uncover.

Only she knows the truth. Only she can save them.

Emily Moon lives with her mother in an inn on a clifftop in the darkest reaches of Cornwall. After her father mysteriously disappears, her mother finds solace at the bottom of a bottle, and the only way to keep afloat is to turn a blind eye to the smugglers who send signals from the clifftops. But Emily knows that the smugglers killed her father to ensure his silence, and she will not let his murder go unpunished…

Present day
After a case ends in tragedy, police officer Phoebe Bellingham flees to Cornwall for a summer of respite. But rather than the sunny Cornwall of her dreams, she finds herself on storm-beaten cliffs, surrounded by stories of ghosts and smugglers – and the mysterious Emily Moon, who vanished without a trace over two centuries ago. As rain lashes down around her, Phoebe determines to find the truth behind the rumours – but what she uncovers will put herself in danger too…

A haunting and moving timeslip novel perfect for fans of The Girl in the Letter, The Forgotten Village and The Witchfinder’s Sister.

Gripping and unputdownable.

I love dual timeline stories especially when there is a mystery or two to solve.
I liked both timelines equally as their respective stories were so well written.
The character, Emily Moon, is a unique and courageous girl. She is on the spectrum which makes her a pitiable oddity in her day but she has a quiet inner strength that shines through.

In the present day, Pheobe has had a difficult case and needs to get away and recharge her batteries. However, she gets embroiled in uncovering an old mystery, and adventure and intrigue ensue.
The history and beauty of Cornwall are evident in the author's descriptions and I couldn't help but add it to my places to visit post Covid!

A brilliantly told story and one I keep thinking about since I finished reading it.
