Kyle Brennan needs a break.

After scouring the earth for his mate, he finally found her in the least convenient place possible. Then she was ripped away from him by forces neither of them could control. But the woman who came back to him isn’t the one who left. Kyle doesn’t know this woman, and he’s not so sure he wants to.


Nicola Miller has a big problem.

She can’t remember a single second of her life before she woke up in a hospital bed in Knoxville, Tennessee. Not just that, but she has a huge, hulking man in her hospital room claiming to be her husband – a man she obviously doesn’t remember – who looks at her as if she’ll strike like a snake at any given moment. She’s not sure how things could get any worse.


But the last shards of Nicola’s life are about to be burned to the ground. Because someone has to pay for the sins of the past, and she’s wearing the face of the woman who committed them.


It looks like the last of their luck has just run out.

I need to hit something – a face, a wall, anything. I just slipped into bed with her, let her warmth wrap around me and I forgot she doesn’t remember me. Her half-Sasquatch comment cemented that fact.

She doesn’t remember I’m half-Witch. She doesn’t remember the first time we made love. She doesn’t remember what she sacrificed or what Iva did while wearing her skin. She doesn’t know what Iva herself did to me. She has no idea and I don’t want to be the one to tell her.

So I did what I do best. I left her there in that room to heal up while I scoured the house for a dojo or a workout room or something so I didn’t start ripping apart furniture. I found myself in the living room wondering how mad Mena would be if I ripped apart an overstuffed armchair with my talons.

“I have a bone to pick with you,” Mena calls from the kitchen, her back to me as she kneads bread at the counter. What is with the Constantine women and cooking all the goddamn time?

“What did I do now?” I ask, flippant when I probably shouldn’t be.

“You’re lucky I have flour all over my hands, dipshit, or I’d illustrate just how pissed off I am. Sit your big ass down,” she scolds, her back still to me.

Deciding it was better to sit than risk my hide, I pull a barstool away from the island and plunk down, crossing my arms in defiance.

“I saw the scar on Nicola’s hand. Did you or did you not bind her, Ky?” she asks but it isn’t a question so much as a threat. She already knows the answer; she just wants to see if I’ll admit it.

I’m not ashamed of what I did. I’d do it again.

“I did.”

“Did you actually ask her, or did you just do it on your own? I’d venture a guess you bit her when she couldn’t answer you. Why else would she have a bite on her hand instead of her neck?” she asks, finally looking up at me, her eyes flicking back and forth between green and amber.

“I did it while she was unconscious. I did it when I thought she would either die or never wake up. I would have spent the rest of my life sitting in that hospital chair waiting for her. So you can be pissed at me all you like, I’m still not sorry.”

Defiance suits me best, so I stick with it, unapologetically staring her down. If I hadn’t held her eyes, I wouldn’t know how worried she is.

“What happens when she never remembers? What if this Nicola never loves you? What then?” she asks softly.

I hate that she asks this. I hate that she takes the one fucking thing I’m insecure about and needles it until I want to punch a hole in every single wall I can find.

“Then I have the rest of forever to change her mind. Either way, she’s still mine,” my voice a rumble of possession.

“Good answer.”

Nikki K’s Review: 

For most people forgetting who you are would be a horrible prospect, but not for Nicola. In her case, it’s a blessing. Until the bits and pieces of her past and visions return, that is.

Kyle, the husband she doesn’t remember, stands by her. He knows her story. Knows the danger surrounding her. And he remembers her past transgressions. None of that matters to him, he loves her with a fierceness. Their lives our bound together and he will sacrifice himself to keep her safe. To keep those she’s wronged from retaliating and those that seek to use her for their own sadistic desires from destroying her.

I wasn’t entirely sure how Annie Anderson was going to make me fall in love with the abhorred Nicola, but she managed to do it. She gives you the story behind the woman and her dastardly deeds. Shining a light on the good buried beneath the darkness.

This book, like the previous 3, is action packed and exciting. From the fight scenes to the sex scenes, I was riveted to my Kindle. I found myself sucked into to the story and wanting more. 

The world author Annie Anderson has created is complex and spans many years as well as landscapes. This is not a book you can read when your not fully present. This is a book to savor and devote your attention to. You won’t want to miss even the smallest details.

I thoroughly enjoyed the ride through time and circumstance and would highly recommend this book to all those seeking adventure. I look forward to more from this author and happy I rate this book 4.5 stars. 

Smoldering Ashes (Ashes to Ashes, #4)Smoldering Ashes by Annie Anderson

Tanya Rae’s rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I say keep the glossary close by. It has been awhile since I have read the last book, Rising Ashes and I think it is a complicated story and hard to stay on top. But, by being able to refer to the glossary it helped me stay on track.

I think that Annie Anderson has a fantastic imagination to have been able to write about this magical world of Phoenix’s. Of good and evil.

Oh do look at the warning for this book. Annie Anderson is serious about the warning because all that stuff in the warning happens in this book.

Smouldering Ashes is the 4th book in the Ashes to Ashes Series and is Nicola & Kyle’s story. Annie Anderson takes you on their wild ride.

This book ends with “THE END… for now”. And, it looks like we will get to see more of Nicola & Kyle’s story with “Ashes to Memories, expected release in 2017”.

It’s 2017 now isn’t it. Okay, I guess we almost have the whole year left but, I hope Ashes to Memories comes out sooner than later.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

But, I also pre-ordered/bought my copy to give it a verified review.

I give Smoldering Ashes 4.5 Stars.
