Book Reviews, Interview (cool one!) & Giveaway: Under The Moonlight by Ashley Nemer & Soul Mates by Ashley Nemer, L.S. Broomfield

The concept of soul mates is timeless, but what happens when circumstance comes between soul mates? Will they find their way back to each other? This short story duo packs a hard punch in the realm of soul mates, giving the reader two different paranormal erotica’s that both ask (and answer) that very question.

Wolf Pack...

Lucas, alpha-wolf and playboy extraordinaire, must face hard truths when an old love returns to town bearing secrets of her own.

Souls Caught Fire…

Katrine, vampire assassin and femme fetal, must choose between love and business when a strong and unexplained attraction blooms between herself and her current mark.

If love is meant to be and souls are bound together by fate, Lucas and Katrine must find a way to hold on to the gift they’ve each been given. When life gets in the way, will love be strong enough to unite them with their soul mates?



*** 4/5 Stars for Book #1 ***

Super fast, sweet, and somewhat spicy read. The first novella centers around Lucas and his long lost love. She suddenly comes back into town with a huge surprise and secret. Angry, Lucas takes over. Lucas is consumed with frustration, but soon loses out to love and a new future.

The novella starts out with a hot chase and sex scene. Honestly, I thought it was headed to be more of erotica novel without the good feelings... but I was proven wrong. A very sweet story that makes sense of the opening scene at the end.

*** 3.5/5 Stars for Book #2 ***

Book number two was more of a classic paranormal romance with hot guy meeting hot girl, sparks fly, tempers fly, and we have the hot kiss. Two paranormal factions not normally meant for each other come face to face with the reality that the only thing either one of them will be killing is their hate for each other. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

A quick read, slightly predictable. The main character seemed a bit in love with herself, but again, the main characters were both alpha(ish) in nature and hot to trot for each other. Fun for a fling, fun for an hour read.


Zara's fate had been decided thousands of years before her birth. She is now fighting against time and family to reclaim the decisions that will ultimately shape her destiny.

Sentenced to live an existence in the Underworld, mated to a man she despises, Zara must find a way to overcome the Gods and their curses, with love as her only guide.

Can James, a sailor, help Zara break the bonds of magical spells or will she end up mated to Xander, the Son of Satan?

Take a dive Under the Moonlight to see where love can take you.



This novella is a mix of mythology, modern relationships, and romance. Zara is one of many prince and princess born to her immortal parents who rule the sea. Using deities of Greek mythology, the author sprinkles their roles through Zara's life. Zara is approaching a pinnacle in her life in which she will chose to live on the land with human or remain in the sea with her people. A handsome bass playing sailor catches her eye. A few awkward dates and a visit from an angry uncle quickly have Zara backing off. James, the sailor, has way more than meets the eye. To add to the mix, Zara is at the center of a family curse that has her tied to Hades son. Ick! Zara has to follow her heart or her duty.

The story flowed well and was interested with the mix of mythology and modern background. Without spoiling the story, my head tilted in confusion during a consummating scene- it was just a bit oddly described and seemed rush. Beyond that, this was an acceptable paranormal romance to pass an hour or two.



The birth of Under The Moonlight

Some authors find their muses in music or the outdoors or even everyday life. This story found its life through one of my oldest and dearest friends, Jennifer. She is a fellow blogger/writer (The Cubicle Escapee) and loves to help me make new ideas for my many different worlds. Well one day Jen goes “I want to read a story about a mermaid.” Now she had emailed me this statement while I was at work so logically I said “Jen go buy a book!”
Of course … I knew what she meant.
She then goes into detail about what all she needs this story to contain.
-A character named Zara
-Crazy Mermaid Sex
Of course I took this insane request in stride and let it alone. Until she came back at me telling me all the guys where she works wanted to read crazy mermaid sex. And at this point, Under The Moonlight was born.
So when the story was finally finished I had all the elements she required. Except the sex. I had a totally crazy and insane sex scene … but my Facebook fans vetoed it. So that scene got tamed down. Here is exactly what one man said …. His name is David … he’s a writer as well. “I like that you're trying something new here! But I gotta agree, the description of a random hole appearing and such, I dunno. It was a bit off. And as a guy, I dunno if I'd be cool with just sticking things in there, lol.” So while his comment made me laugh out loud it did also make me decide to bring it back home to some regular, ‘normal’ sexual fun.
So there is the story of Under the Moonlight and there should be one moral you all take away from this story …. Never let your friends dictate your writing … it may lead to strange looks and odd scenes.

Hello, and welcome to my Goodreads page! I am touched you have taken the time to visit me.

Here's a bit about me. I've been married just under 6 years and my wonderful husband along with our two pup's, Toto and Doogie, are the center of my world.

Writing has always been something that called to me, or rather being creative in one form or another.

I am so thankful to everyone (and there are a lot!) who has helped me along this journey. Each and everyone of you mean so much to me and I will never forget your love, support and help!
