Blog Tour: Karen-Anne Stewart - Ash to Steele

New Adult Romance
Date Published: February 13, 2014


Who I am and all I believe is marred with just one glance into angry, steel blue eyes. He seems to control my air, my ability to breathe. He makes me crave everything I know is a sin. Pure becomes tainted and lines are blurred. It's my fault; I'm the one who isn't strong enough. I've been damaged...broken. Breck's words haunt me...'There's a consequence for every choice you make.'


I've had so many women I can't even remember over half of their names, but none of them are mine; I make damn sure of that. I take what I desire and never look back. I don't need or want anyone, ever...not until I met Emma. Those eyes bore into what's left of my soul and her touch sears me, weakens me. I want to hate her for that. She is my sweetest hell. 

Disclaimer: Intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.


 "Angrily opening my eyes, I slam my palms against the floor, not wanting to think of last night, of Emma, or how beautiful she looked without make-up and wearing those old, torn jeans and worn-out jacket.  I wanted to kiss her.  That goes against all my rules.  No kissing, no personal shit, just sex.  Lots of sex.  Seeing her bare skin through the holes in those jeans made me thirst for sex.  I could taste her.  Her phantom flavor bursts on my tongue even now.  There was nothing remarkable about the modest amount of skin I saw.  Hell, the holes weren’t even near intimate areas, but seeing her tan skin made me want to see all of her, lying on the bed for me.  Just for me. That’s another cardinal sin, none of them are mine, I make damn sure of that. 

   There’s an unending supply of women who are willing to follow the rules and service my needs, so thoughts of Emma getting in my way doesn’t make any sense.  Only pansy asses like Jason believe in love at first site, swearing that’s what happened between him and Jess.  That’s bullshit.  Love is bullshit.

   Emma is different, possibly innocent, or at least more innocent than the others.  Maybe that’s what’s screwing with my head.  I’ve grown too accustomed to women who are anything but innocent. Debased.  That’s what I prefer, what I’m used to, what I need.  There’s only one way to get her poison out of me…I will make her like the others."


In a surprising stand alone book, Karen-Anne offers us the story of two lonely souls in search of what many people think is impossible: Emma wanted to fall in love madly, and Breck wanted redemption. 
The difference is that Emma believed in her quest, Breck thought he was a lost soul. 

When Emma met Breck in Dark Hole, she knew she should not  be charmed by him, but it was impossible to avoid him. Especially when she needed his help more than once. Breck, in turn, did not want to avoid her, even though being the type of man who does not engage with his achievements. But how to resist the sweet and naive way of Emma? 

A passion that overcomes the barrier of what is allowed and leads to both unknown and wonderful places. The personal paradise that each sought and thought no longer exists ...

A 5 STARS story.
