Read an #Excerpt from Burning Ash by N.J. Walters

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

ebook, 400 pages
Published September 21st 2020 by Entangled: Amara
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.

In one practiced motion, she yanked her crossbow from the wall and aimed it at him. “Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t pull the trigger.”
Yup, she was still pissed. He’d exposed her vulnerability, not just by his actions, but by her response to his presence in her bed.
“Bloodstains are hard to get out of carpet.” He’d hoped to coax a smile from her, but her lips thinned.
“It’s only a throw rug. I can toss it and scrub the hardwood beneath. And if I throw your sorry ass in the street, I won’t need cops or paperwork. Now how did you get in here?” She shoved her hand in her coat pocket and pulled out her keys, dangling them in front of him before jamming them into her front pocket.
Holding his hands up in surrender, he shrugged. “I didn’t take them. I’m good with locks.” Understatement. He was more powerful than she could even begin to comprehend. There weren’t many places he couldn’t get into if he put his mind to it.
“You do it again and you’ll be sorry.”
The hurt in her eyes cut him deeply. He’d taken away her sense of security. That was unforgivable. If he could go back and change things, he would. “I give you my word.” If it came to it, he’d camp out in her hallway or in front of her building, but he would not enter her space without invitation.
When she lowered the crossbow, he took it from her and set it back on its rack. “I only wanted to protect you.”
“I can take care of myself.” The flat tone and the way she turned away told him she was done talking about it.

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same.

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
