Burning Ash by NJ Walters
Genre Paranormal Romance/Vampire
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
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.
Know the Hero from Burning Ash
Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It's late, he's bored. What does he do?
Asher is rarely bored—there’s so much to see and do—but he’d likely catch an episode of the Real Housewives of wherever. He loves reality television.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Food is something to be savored and enjoyed. He isn’t likely to impulse buy anything.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
He wears a lot of black—jeans, shirt, boots, and leather coat. Easier to hide bloodstains and is always classic.
Does he know how to fix things?
If it interests him, he’ll learn. Computers are his passion, and he’s one of the best hackers on the planet. Otherwise, he’ll hire someone.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
As a vampire, he needs blood to survive. Unlike the rest of his kind, he can eat food. When he first learned to cook—thousands of years ago—it didn’t go well. Vampires don’t exactly like fire. He burned more than he ate for the first decade or so. Now he goes out to eat or gets food delivered.
How does he act around children he doesn't know?
He hasn’t spent any time around them. He’s an immortal assassin. Not exactly a great babysitter. Or maybe that makes him perfect for the job.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
The night is Asher’s time to live and roam. He can be out in the day, unlike most of his kind, but he’s not what you’d call a morning person. He’s likely to be in bed or at home working on his computer.
How does he act around people who don't know what he is?
Unlike many immortals, Asher enjoys humans, their lives and the drama that surrounds them. He’s a big people watcher.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
If he can handle things himself, he does. Trust is a huge issue for him.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Nope, no piercings or tattoos. Piercings give an opponent something to rip out in a fight. He’s not opposed to tattoos but never settled on one he’d like permanently. Eternity is a very long time.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Living in New York, public transit is easier. Plus, he can run at preternatural speeds if he needs to get somewhere fast. Or he can catch a ride on top of a transport truck, something he’s done many times before.
Recycle or toss?
Coming from a much earlier time, he’s big into recycling.
Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
