New Case. A nasty one. Hope it has a quick run, but I have a bad feeling about this one.

Dinner at desk and home too late to work on the secret project. Maybe this weekend. I need a vacation or they can rack me up in the body count.

Too wired to go home after shift. Finally tried that place Coopers. Interesting staff who like to annoy the customers. Nice ass, though.

       His name is Ian. Ian Stuart. Accent to die for and prefers books to sex, so I hear, though I’m not seeing that side of him.

He’s Scottish, fun, teases to just the right point and I have to admit, not at all bad on the eyes.

Have put away current project and begun work on an afghan for Ian. He liked the one I made that’s in the living room. Thinking I might keep him around long enough to finish.
   Wasn’t that other project for me? I know your weak spots Detective. Get back to work.

Met Ian’s oldest friend tonight at Cooper’s. Travis. Not bad on the eyes either and full of confidence and fun. I think he might be talking to the rest of the roommates about me at the house. Will have to dig deeper.

   Told you I would leave Scotland in the dust.
     Ashley Barrow
     And I believe I remember what I said back.

Finally meeting Ian’s roommates for a birthday party for the youngest, Evan. Nervous. He never talks about them, really. They just show up now and again unannounced. I’ve never been in the same room with all of them at once.
   Jason Sullivan:
   Looking forward to it.
     Quinn Nelson
     I get first dance.

For a hundred years, Ian Stuart has fought the monster controlling his life. Living as a human among humans, he wants to fill the void that has followed him from one empty, lonely relationship to another. Ashley Barrow is working the worst murder case in Davenport, Oregon's history. She needs a drink to forget the detailed images in her mind.

When she walks into Ian's pub, Ian knows their lives are about to change, if only for a short while. Vampire and human, their relationships can only last so long. But an enemy from Ian's past has his own agenda about their future. His sadistic revenge changes Ashley forever, leaving Ian and his long time friends – Travis, Jason, Quinn and Evan -- desperate to ease her into her new life and find a way to defeat their enemy.

Re: Jacqui Jacoby | Ash to Her Friends

How do I connect with my friends? I personally connect
with them. I find the internet to be unsatisfying.
(Deb Philippon 2:29pm July 9, 2015)

Most of my friends are imaginary LOL ... typical writer
infliction. I use a lot to play with them and the Internet
to help them develop. I use FB because I enjoy it and a
lot of the real kind of friends don't live in town.
(Jacqui Jacoby Wilson 2:41pm July 9, 2015)

I contact them mainly by phone. I connect mainly by sharing things like: real thoughts, advise and events.
(Trish Fesmir 3:59pm July 9, 2015)

Sometimes e-mail, letters, and phone calls...

(Marissa Yip-Young 5:34am July 10, 2015)

I connect on email, texting, facebook & at the gym or meeting
for lunch or shopping. I guess it helps that we're retired. I
haven't read your books yet, and I'm glad to find a new-to-me
author to read!
(Sharon Shearouse 11:01am July 10, 2015)

Anyone have any questions about Ashley? Or the cast?
There are five guys listed toward the end, all willing to
live or die for each other or the people they love, which
we would be Ashley.
(Jacqui Jacoby Wilson 4:27pm July 10, 2015)

I still use snail mail a lot for many of my friends live out of town. I always send them greeting cards for various holidays. They seem to appreciate them.
(Gladys Paradowski 10:38pm July 10, 2015)

My closest non-family friends live across the country, and I online chat with
them almost daily.

I would just rather read.
