Romance Paranormal

Every dog might have his day, but the hellhound guards the night...

As a snowstorm locks down the city, more than the roads are getting iced. Someone’s beheaded the wrong girl, and vampire-on-the-lam Talia Rostova thinks it was meant to be her. Now she’s the prime suspect in her own botched murder— and the prisoner of her smoking-hot neighbor.

Lore is a hellhound, bred to serve and protect, so he’s not freeing Talia until he’s sure that she’s the prey and not the hunter. You’d think a beautiful woman in his bedroom would be a good thing, but trouble-prone Talia has run afoul of someone more sinister than your average lunatic killer. An ancient Undead is wreaking vengeance on the city— and on her—and Lore will have to go far beyond a stake to put him back in his grave...

Re: Frostbound

It sounds like a scary book. I might want to read it. I look forward to the romance. I'd also like a story about a good-hearted sexy handsome vampire that preys on a pretty woman in a good way, to have her as his romance. I'd like to be that woman. Yeah, and he could make love to me to the beat and sounds of some good rock music. Love, love, love. I think I'm going to lay down and fantasize about this. Dang, you got me all in the mood....

Sharon- your book sounds wickedly sexy, yet has other twists to it that make you want to read the book to find out what happened. I got totally hooked after reading your blog. I loved the cover, too!! I must confess that I've never read any of your books before, but I have a feeling that you're going to gain another new fan. I can't wait to read this book, and will probably read the others as well. Congratulations on your latest book, and best of luck on your future endeavors.

Talia Rostova, a newly turned Vampire with major secrets, finds her cousin, Michelle, brutally murdered. Talia is convinced the murderer killed the wrong girl but before she can begin to rationalize the situation and disappear, Talia becomes the prisoner of Lore, the Hellhound that lives in the same building. As a Hellhound Alpha with the gift of sketchy premonition, Lore never thought the pretty girl from his building capable of murder nor did he predict that the two weeks he becomes the temporary Sheriff of Fairview would his status as Alpha of his pack be challenged, the Vampire Queen’s life be threatened by the legend of the Hunters, or the possibility of another species being his mate. Locking up the feisty and surprisingly talented Talia in his bedroom may not be his best idea but Lore feels it is his only option while he searches for the truth. Guarding and tracking are his specialty, so if Lore stays focused and patient he will get to the bottom of all his questions.

Frostbound is the fourth book in Sharon Ashwood’s The Dark Forgotten series and once again transports the reader to Fairview, a small town attempting to deal with humans and non-humans to co-exist as equals. Frostbound is witty, creative, dark, and dangerous all rolled in one. While we as readers are re-introduced to characters from the previous books, we are also gifted with learning of new ones such as Darak, a gladiator gone Vampire Mercenary. (Hmmm, I wonder if Darak has a story?) I have had the great pleasure to read all four in this series and experience the passion of the characters while enjoying a fresh take on the paranormal world. I love the book and I love the series.
