Ashes of MidnighteBook - 2009
A woman driven by blood. A man thirsting for vengeance.
A place where darkness and desire meet...
As night falls, Claire Roth flees, driven from her home by a fiery threat that seems to come from hell itself. Then, from out of the flames and ash, a vampire warrior emerges. He is Andreas Reichen, her onetime lover, now a stranger consumed by vengeance. Caught in the cross fire, Claire cannot escape his savage fury--or the hunger that plunges her into his world of eternal darkness and unending pleasure.
Nothing will stop Andreas from destroying the vampire responsible for slaughtering his Breed brethren . . . even if he must use his former lover as a pawn in his deadly mission. Blood-bonded to his treacherous adversary, Claire can lead Andreas to the enemy he seeks, but it is a journey fraught with danger--and deep, unbidden desires. For Claire is the one woman Andreas should not crave, and the only one he's ever loved. A dangerous seduction begins--one that blurs the lines between predator and prey, and stokes the flames of a white-hot passion that may consume all in its path. . . .

SummaryAdd a Summary
Andreas Reichen is one out-of-control and angry vampire. Three months ago the Darkhaven compound housing his family and friends was annihilated and everyone killed by the Enforcement Agency. Andreas hatches a plan to kill the man responsible and goes to his mansion outside the city. With his newly released pyrotechnic skills blazing, Andreas mows through anything in his path. He wants gratification, and he wants it now. Burning anyone who crosses his path, Andre does not expect to see the one woman he can't forget - Claire Roth, his enemy's Breedmate and the only woman he has ever loved.
Claire Roth has spent the last thirty years regretting her decision to become Wilhelm Roth's Breedmate and yearning for news of the one man that she is unable to forget - Andreas Reichen. Now it is too late. Claire has gotten word that he, along with his family and friends perished after an attack on his Darkhaven compound. Silently mourning the man she secretly loved, Claire plans a memorial garden for him. When her bodyguards rush to her and beg her to leave because of an unseen danger, Claire reluctantly leaves her home only to be stopped by a power more deadly than nature - Andreas Reichen in pyrotechnic mode - and he is not happy.
Andreas will have his revenge on Wilhelm Roth and nothing will stop him - not even Claire, Wilhelm's ignored mate and Andreas' secret beloved.
