With a little tweaking, her protagonist, Anne McPherson, could at least match Robert Langdon as a character and probably surpass it. "Anne has six weeks to complete her thesis on the Knights Templar."
The hero, Merrick du Loire, is very well constructed and believable. But his goal, to kill his cousin because he has become the devil's pawn, is not shown to be strong but merely an obligation.
The main plot is their romance. If this had been a standard romance, it would have been a fine romance and one of the better romance sellers. But she chose the erotic side of romance and thereby at least somewhat limited her sales.

Her twist that the Templars are immortal and living in modern day America is a great idea. The copper scroll that was found with the locations of the gates of hell is brilliant. Even her choice as to who is in charge of the demons is excellent.
Had she flipped the plot and subplot and kept the main plot on the Templars action, I think this would have been at least a fantasy bestseller, but possibly a Dan Brown type bestseller.
Her website says she writes various levels of erotica under various names. If she makes the choice to write straight paranormal or thrillers, she will become a best-selling author.
The main characters Anne and Merrick are believable and compelling. This is even with a hero who was not in his original place in time. The characters seemed to experience conflict and yet gravitate toward each other in true romantic fashion. Ashgrove's use of the Templars was a neat twist and the world she built made me want to read more, so I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
