New enemies are made.
New allies must be forged.
Kali is beginning to regain her memories. In doing so, she discovers old secrets and betrayals that threaten to unravel her present and shake the foundation for Rhane’s belief in her innocence. While her maturing abilities present unique challenges, a bigger problem arises when Kali learns her ex-boyfriend has made a misguided deal with the enemy in order to win her back—a decision that may ultimately cost him his humanity.
Keeping Kali safe has become a full time job for Rhane. And struggling to gain control of the immortal Banewolf isn’t making that task any easier. The power to eliminate the growing threat against Kali lies at Rhane’s fingertips, but using it means risking his friends to the insatiable blood lust of a monster. So Rhane is forced to forge a shaky alliance with creatures he has sworn to destroy. Despite these new allies, the danger pressing on their borders intensifies, culminating in a heartbreaking and shocking finale.
The strength of the bond between young and ancient lovers will be tested…and if Kali and Rhane are to survive, they must find a way to be unbreakable.
Cynic, realist, and hopeless romantic all rolled into one, Eden was born and raised in a small, sunny town in South Carolina, but thunderstorms have inspired her best ideas. There are few things she loves more than curling up with a good book and a cup of coffee on a rainy day, (except maybe chocolate cake. She loves cake.) often reading into the wee hours of morning when something really grabs her attention. She pretty much loves anything with supernatural elements, so writing paranormal romance and fantasy romance seems to be a natural fit.

Please welcome Banewolf author Eden Ashley to Diane’s Book Blog.
From start to finish, it was about ten months in total. I’m trying to do better! My goal is to cut down the time it takes to complete a novel to six months.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
I would have to say York only because Rhane is taken. He’s totally Kali’s! With York I know I’d never be bored because the guy can find the humor in any situation. He’s big enough and bad enough to keep me safe from whatever wild animals that may want me for dinner. And we could have sex. Lots of sex. Rough and dirty.
Who or what inspired you to be a writer?
I’ve loved writing since I could hold a crayon. I actually used to have a little notebook from when I was kid with these weird little short stories written inside of it in colored pencil. I guess writing was just always in my blood. Now what actually inspired me to focus that passion into a writing an actual novel—that is a different monster.
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Ayan Rand. I didn’t get around to reading any of her work until college when a classmate recommended Atlas Shrugged to me. I ended up reading The Fountainhead first. Loved it. Then I read Atlas Shrugged and was completely blown away. Rand’s writing was just so complex and infused with meaning. It really touched every part of my brain with its intrigue, symbolism, and passion. People just don’t write like that anymore (myself included). The stuff I read today is popcorn reading by comparison.
What is your typical day like?
After a minimum of five snooze button slaps, I drag myself from bed and proceed to navigate (unsuccessfully) the two time-sucking wormholes that are situated directly over my closet and bathroom. Two hours later, I arrive to work perpetually five minutes late to begin the work day of begging, bribing, and cheering various residents into completing their therapy sessions. Six hours later, I retreat to a local coffee shop where I can once again start wielding the magic of creating new worlds and characters. When my muse gets bored or tired, I placate her with several hours of television watching. Once she is rejuvenated, the writing begins anew with me trying to bang out a chapter or two before 2 a.m. rolls around.
What book are you reading now?
I am ashamed to admit it, but I’m still working on Larsson’s The Girl Who Played With Fire. I started it in October. My New Year’s resolution might end up being to finish it by summer!
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
Paperbacks. Definitely paperbacks.
