Description

From the New York Times bestselling author Nashoda Rose, comes a new sexy paranormal romance.

MAX
Feelings are a luxury I can’t afford. Hidden behind a shield of quiet placidity, I keep my secret safe from those who’d use it against me. Until him—the tatted up, self-centered Scar assassin hired to protect me.

He takes pleasure in tormenting me, chipping away at my defenses as if I’m a toy to be played with. I hate that he continuously reminds me that I’m nothing more than a job. I hate that my body responds to his touch. I hate him.

JASPER
I’m not a good guy and I don’t pretend to be. Condemn me if you want, I don’t give a crap. You’re nothing to me. No one is … except her—Max. She’s my target. And I was hired to do a hell of a lot more than protect her … I was hired to kill her.
It should’ve been simple, but it was complicated as hell.

*Full length novel. --Meet the Scars.
Contains explicit sex, disturbing scenes and offensive language.

  • Fell in love...

    I so fell in love with both the main characters. I love them!! I'm sad this is a stand alone album and not part of a series even though I am looking forward to reading the Scars of Wraiths series. My favorite part was when Max didn't want to leave him and would rather give up her life, than have a life with out her love. For any fan of PNR's this is a must read. Also for those readers who are not used to paranormal romances and are into regular romances, you'll love this book as well. Well written and I'm so upset it took me this long to decide to read it when I absolutely love the authors other works.

    I was super excited when I seen that Nashoda Rose wrote a new book. I was even more excited to see that it's PNR. I'm a big fan of hers and I love PNR books! Let me tell you that Take a new series entitled Scars of the Wraiths was not a disappointment. I devoured this book in one sitting. I could not put it down once I started. It grabbed a hold of me at the very beginning and I just couldn't stop reading it until I was finished. Jasper is a take what he wants kind of guy. He doesn't care about anything but his job and the pay out he gets when's it's done. He's a ruthless killer and a Scar Sounder. (Scar Sounders: Able to detect high frequencies from long distances.) His past has made him who he is today. He has no feelings and makes sure everyone around him knows this. That is until Max becomes his job. He's hired to protect her or kill her. Max is also a Scar. A Scar Healer. (Scar Healers: Females with the capability to heal other Scars and humans. In rare instances, capable of healing animals and other entities. Able to envision the injury and heal the wound from the inside out. Experiences the pain of the injury.) Max has been hiding from someone evil. This evil person took everything from her when she was 10. He held her prisoner for 6 years. When she finally escaped she was left with many scars and was a shell of her old self. Healers can't heal themselves. When Jasper first meets Max he instantly knows that this woman has put up a shield to hide herself from others. He wants to crack this shield. He wants to see a smile on her face. Max never smiles. Jasper watches her for six months. Never letting her know that he is around. Max can feel him but never sees him. She can smell him but thinks it's just her mind playing tricks. Neither understand their feelings toward each other. When these two are thrown together with a quickness the sparks ignite. The banter between these two was never ending. Jasper would be so insulting one minute and the next he would be sitting next to her helping her calm down after a nightmare. But one thing was sure Jasper wanted Max and made sure she knew it. When these two finally come together the smoke detectors started blaring! Max never made it easy on him. She could put up a fight like no one else. When the enemy gets closer Jasper has to come to terms with what he needs to do. He will not let this evil man sink his hands back into Max. “You’re the stars that burn away the darkness, Max. That’s what it feels like when I’m with you. Like I’m all lit up inside with brilliant specks of light. And when I touch you, it’s like I’ve grabbed one out of the sky and I’m holding it in my hand. Flawless. Bright. And beautiful.” Will Jasper do what he's paid to do? Protect her? Kill her? I recommend that you read this and find out! You will not be disappointed:) I can't wait for more! Awesome job Nashoda Rose! Another winning series you have started here! ***ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley. Thank you so much!!***

    This book was definitely different from her other series and books, but I must say it was a great read. It was nice to step away from all the typical romance novels and into this fantasy world she created where love still conquers in the end.
