He came from across the universe - a tawny, powerful stranger more perfect than any mere mortal. Yet when Micah crash-landed on earth, not even his boundless strength could help him resist the temptations of one stunning beauty.
Trapped on a world not his own, tracked by enemies bent on destroying him, Micah fought to preserve his very life even as he ached to claim the love that would take him to heaven and beyond.
THE LATEST NEWS
I received a review of Night's Promise from Annetta Sweetko at Fresh Fiction, which says, in part: NIGHT'S PROMISE dives right into the heart of the story and holds you until the last thrilling word. After reading Night's Mistress, I wondered about the baby born to the Queen of the Vampires and I am thrilled to say he's here. Author Amanda Ashley not only gives us Derek's story but we get to look into the continuing life of Mara and Logan.
Derek and Sheree's story has the angst that is more usual in a contemporary but it works in this book, because added into the usual romantic problems there are hunters, vampire wannabes and the added danger of Derek's curse. Ms. Ashley stated on her website that she had thought the story of Mara would be the last of the Night series but that Derek's story wanted to be written. I am glad it did. I hope she might be able to squeeze out another in this amazing series, but whatever she writes I will be reading.
Night Owl Reviews said, "Ms. Amanda Ashley does a wonderful job crafting a grand tale in Night’s Promise. When an author’s series has had a wonderful run like Ms. Ashley it may be difficult to create new story lines, but not Amanda. Instead, Ms. Ashley takes a woman (Sheree) and a vampire (Derek) and focuses on the development of the relationship before discussing familial relationship issues........This novel starts off gently but it gains momentum quickly. Night’s Promise is a story with many twists and turns guaranteed to keep readers interested and wanting another Amanda Ashley novel. In fact, this book can be viewed as lighted-hearted at times and heavy-hearted the next, which will be certain to enthuse readers."
I'm so glad the reviews have been positive because, as I've said before, I LOVE THIS STORY!
I'm currently in negotiations with my publisher for the 7th and final book in the series. At least, I think it's the last book!
I finished reading the copy-edits for BEAUTY'S BEAST and I have to say, I love this book, too. It's my take on the Beauty and the Beast story. Happily, my editor also loves it. She said, "I’ve finished reading/editing BEAUTY’S BEAST, and I absolutely love this story. Something about the fairytale quality of it is incredibly appealing, and it’s such a beautiful love story. There’s a wonderful sense of longing and redemption in the relationship between Erik and Kristine. Also, lots of sexual tension, drama and action!"
Some happy news. NIGHT'S MISTRESS placed first in the Fiction: Romance category of The 2013 USA Best Book Awards, sponsored by USA Book News. How awesome is that?
Regarding MIDNIGHT AND MOONLIGHT, a reader said, "A fairy and a vampire . . . this is where fantasy meets the paranormal. Disney meets Dracula. I thought the plot was creative and unique! Ms. Ashley created other worlds all connected to our world through portals, and described them in vivid detail. This book will stand apart from the author's other books in my mind because it took a step away from her typical novel. If you've enjoyed any of her other novels, I recommend this one.
