Book Description

16 Sep 2009
Haunted by dreams of a mysterious yet seductive figure, Ariya awakens to a more dangerous nightmare: a vicious elemental creature nearly wiping out her entire family outside her bedroom doors. Her parents urge her to cross over into the mortal realm and there she is saved from another attack against strange shifter wolves. Her rescuer is Jace Archane, an immortal Nightwalker from the House of Blood within the Ashen Twilight House. The very same man from her dreams. Now the race is on to find out the origins of the elemental creature and stop the horrific killing spree. As they dig deeper into the mystery, they will uncover a truth that ties the elemental's origins to a forgotten ally with plans to overthrow the Archane legacy and obtain Ariya's fairy blood fueling an immortal thirst for power.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very sexy fantasy! 2 Jun 2009
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
He's a Nightwalker - a modern day vampire. She's an Aziza Fairy. The two should never meet and without a doubt, never fall in love. What happens when they do? And what happens when the past isn't quite what you expected or remembered? Find out in A Kiss of Ashen Twilight.

Ms. Lori writes an exciting novel. I couldn't put it down. The first installment of the Ashen Twilight Series starts off thrilling and only gives you brief moments of rest to catch your breath, but it's worth the ride. As with other fun stories, this is one you'll read again and again. The scenes are so rich that the reader finds themselves in the scenes, not merely watching from the sidelines.

Jace makes a great brooding hero. He feeds at night and when he finds the one woman who can bring light into his world, he's afraid to let her go. I liked that he grew as a person through the story and that he remained handsome and in-charge even when he led with his heart. Ariya made a fantastic heroine because she never backed down. You could relate to her struggle to avenge her family and keep peace for her land. No one really wants conflict in their lives. I also liked that she never gave up on those around her. She made a great role model, as well.

Although the back and forth in time could be a bit confusing, the time jumps made sense and illustrated the story well.

If you like a very sexy fantasy novel, then A Kiss of Ashen Twilight is the novel for you. I give this work 4.5 books.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great paranormal romance! 30 Sep 2010
By M. Vander - Published on Amazon.com
A Kiss of Ashen Twilight tells the story of Ariya, a "sheltered" Aziza fairy living in another realm unknown to others. There is an evil entity that has been terrorizing her and her family and certain tragic circumstances soon force her to escape her once "safe haven" to what they call the "mortal realm"..in order to seek safety. She quickly comes to find that there are "other" immortals in this world that she has read/studied about but never truly believed existed.

Jace Archane , a 600 year old "playboy" vampire who is constantly trying to "shirk" responsibilities, comes to her aide when she runs into trouble upon first arriving. There is an instant attraction that both of them feel "internally" but outwardly try to fight... it soon becomes evident, however, that they must work together to bring down this evil that has now followed her from her home into his.

This wasn't your typical PNR story about just a vampire or a were shifter..it had a little bit of everything!...vampires, werewolves, elves, and fairies... it's not often that you get to read a story that features them all...so that part, for me, was very enjoyable! The beginning of this story started out a little bit slow for me and I was a little bit nervous because it was reading , at first, like a historical..but the story soon moved into present day and at that point the storyline eventually picked up pace. I have to admit that I was a little unsure as to whether or not I was going to like this book ...I was afraid that it was going to be more Urban Fantasy, which I'm NOT a huge fan of, than PNRomance..although I LOVE everything "paranormal"...in my BOOKS...there HAS TO BE a romantic element to it! I'm happy to "report" that Rae Lori did NOT disappoint! I liked that even though there was that "instant" attraction between Jace and Ariya the author didn't immediately throw them together..she created a nice, slow, sweet build up to their relationship and the sexual tension between the two of them and their eventual "hook up" was enough to satisfy any die hard romantic. There was also a good suspenseful storyline that kept you guessing up until the very end and I really enjoyed the interaction between Jace and his friends. Having said that...I can't wait to see where Rae Lori plans on going with this series...whether she will continue on with the same couple as the "feature" couple ...or whether she will eventually move on to focus on other characters that we've been introduced to. There are a few in particular that I would LOVE to see find "their" mates. I already have the 2nd book in hand and can't wait to get start reading about Jace and Ariya's continuing saga. Rae Lori can add one more fan to her, I'M SURE, growing list of fans. This is definitely a series that I will continue to follow! Any fan of this genre..whether UF or PNR will want to pick this one up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern vampire and werewolf myth with fairies 29 Feb 2012
By Azul Simmons - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A blend of modern vampire and werewolf myth with African fairies and Shifter Elves set in Arizona. All of this is brought together into a cohesive story with a lot of action, sex, romance, and intrigue. The writing style is very visual with lots of energy bolts, flashy transformations featuring feral vampires and huge muscular werewolves, a beautiful dark-skinned fairy with lovely glowing translucent wings, and lots of bloody, vicious battles described in quick, gory detail.

The pacing is a bit slow in parts, but overall it moves along at a fast enough pace to make it a lively read. The characters are beautiful. The kind you want to see in a story of this kind. Muscular, handsome, well-groomed men dressed in high fashion attire. Voluptuous, beautiful women clad in well-described sexy clothes. A world set apart from our own mundane world where the movers and shakers of the vampire, werewolf, fairy, and shifter elf realms live their adventurous, sexually thrilling, and much more exciting lives. The author gives us a fun glimpse into her vision of this world.

The sex scenes are fairly well-written, without being too graphic. They give you that sensous tittilating feeling you look for in a romance novel without going overboard. The vision of the fair-skinned, muscular Nightwalker coming together with the beautiful, chocolate-skinned, sexually innocent fairy provides an electro-static shock to the libido.

Definitely worth a read if you enjoy supernatural romance with more action than is usual in a romance novel. As always with these books because of my personal tastes: needs more werewolf fighting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion, drive and a well written romance! 15 Aug 2013
By Mika - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Imagine being thrown into a world of complete chaos with creatures you have only read about up to this point - to top things off, you are being hunted by an elemental monster. This is where Ariya finds herself within the first pages of "A Kiss of Ashen Twilight" Her dreams become reality as she is saved by a Nightwalker, Jace. Passion, drive and a very well written romance make this first book in the Ashen Twilight Series a wonderful read! The author does a fantastic job keeping the pace of the story quick, yet smooth. You won't skip ahead or have to backtrack because you lost a key point somewhere along the way. Instead if you're like me, you will find yourself engulfed in this magical world as if you are alongside Ariya and Jace - instead of reading a book. Perfect amount of detail/description of scenes, historical references to keep the story up to speed and a man with a GREAT body make this one steamy book!

I usually shy away from Sci-fi Romance books because I've read some rather cheesy attempts...but I have to give it to the author Rae Lori, she has accomplished something I never dreamed possible; a genuinely interesting fantasy world with the right amount of romance to keep things interesting! I highly recommend this book! I can't wait to read the rest of the series! Oh and as a spoiler, if you buy the Kindle version you can read the preview to "Within the Shadows of Mortals" The second book in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique 13 Aug 2013
By Manchester - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A fast and smooth paced plot is complimented very well by some great writing with visually rich scenes and character interactions. I thought that the story itself was really unique, it definitely shares some classic qualities of what make most fantasy books great, but it's expressed through the author's own style which went above and beyond my initial expectations. There is a refreshingly new blend of action and romance that can be found throughout these pages, I thought that they were all crafted really well and they transitioned into one another seamlessly; the characters themselves were also quite original and the hot scenes were definitely put together nicely. I will definitely be looking out for the next releases by the author
