Teaser Tuesday–Immortal Hope and Time Out

Okay, I took one look at this hottie and wanted to know more about Immortal Hope by Claire Ashgrove.  And learn more about the guy.  Like where is the rest of his chain mail? If he is attacked by demons, his beautiful body will be marred!

Declan’s wound gaped wide, exposing white bone beneath. He groaned as Merrick and Farran eased him onto the fresh linens of a newly made bed within the infirmary.  Merrick squeezed the Scott’s good shoulder. Though the tear in Declan’s flesh was bad, Merrick had seen worse.


When I saw Jill Shalvis’ new Harlequin Blaze, I had to read it.  Like RIGHT. THIS. SECOND.  I even let it take cuts, despite the massive guilt I feel for dissing my other, more seasoned reads.  Why? The hero is a coach in the NHL.  I love hockey!  I’m from Red Wing country, so I guess it’s inherited.

"Trust me, he’s not your type.”

“Because he’s rich and famous? Because he’s tough as hell and cool as ice?”

“Because he’s missing a vital organ.”

Lena gasped in horror.  “He doesn’t have a d-“

“A heart! He’s missing a heart! Jeez, get your mind out the gutter.”

Cover Shot! Immortal Hope by Claire Ashgrove

Gah!  Now that is what a knight is supposed to look like!  I’m not sure that he should contemplate entering a battle dressed like that, but, yum, he looks hot posing with that sword.  Immortal Hope by Claire Ashgrove will be in stores in January.



Templar knights defied the archangels and unearthed the copper scroll, revealing the gates to hell. Cursed for their forbidden act, they forever roam the earth protecting mankind from evil. But darkness stalks them, and battles they fight bring them ever-closer to eternal damnation. One promise remains to give them salvation – the return of the seraphs.

Embittered by his purpose, Merrick du Loire must honor an ancient pact and bring peace to his cousin’s soul. When he stumbles upon history professor Anne MacPherson, he discovers she possesses a sacred artifact that marks her as a seraph. Duty demands he set aside his personal quest and locate the knight she’s fated to heal. As he struggles with conflicting oaths, Anne arouses buried hope and sparks forbidden desire that challenges everything he’s sworn to uphold.

Anne has six weeks to complete her thesis on the Knights Templar. When Merrick takes her to the Templar stronghold, he presents her with all she needs—and awakens a soul-deep ache, he alone can soothe. Yet loving Merrick comes with a price. If she admits she’s destined for him, her gift of foresight predicts his death.
