A warrior with a mission
There isn’t a buffalo or deer that Kajika cannot take down. So when his cousin is slaughtered he relishes the chance to track down the killer. The trail leads him to a woman with gifts he has trouble believing in. Despite their differences he cannot fight his instinct to protect her from all threats – even those he cannot see. That drive even rivals his desire to explore every inch of her body.

A woman with a destiny
Knowing the spirits will protect her, Ahyoka allows the handsome warrior to take her to be questioned by his chief about the unexplained deaths in their village. He may not believe in her abilities but he is one of the few who doesn’t treat her like something to be feared or shunned. He awakens feelings that make her yearn for things she thought she’d never have. Her biggest fear is that once he learns the full extent of her gifts he will reject her like most of her tribe did.

A killer twisted by hurt and anger
Kajika and Ahyoka must work together to find the one responsible for the string of deaths in and around their villages. Faith, trust, and even a little bit of love will be needed to defeat the killer and right the wrongs committed in the pursuit of power and revenge.

 When Ash Remains by Dena Garson

When Ash RemainsShe was shunned by her tribe, until they needed her help and the kind and generous hearted Ahyoka never let them down. Blessed with the gift of the spirits’ protection, Ahyoka has many powers, including hearing the voices of the animals, the whispers in the air and the intent in a man’s heart.

Kajika is a warrior, a hunter, a provider, but this time his mission is to hunt down a murderer and the tracks lead to Ahyoka, a beautiful woman who claims powers from the very spirits he has lost faith in. While eager to return her to his village to discover her innocence or guilt, there is something that shines within this woman and calls to the male protector and lover in him. Is it possible that the spirits have brought them together for a purpose?

Now hunting for the real killer, time is of the essence to save the wandering souls of the innocent family killed. Will the hunter in Kajika and the spirit powers within Ahyoka make the perfect team to bring peace to the dead, safety to the tribes and justice to a twisted killer? Will these two also find that for everyone there is another who makes their souls sing and their passion burn?

Dena Garson’s WHEN ASHES REMAIN is a mystical, historical romance filled with a wealth of kind and caring characters, the feel and presence of strong spirits beyond the veil and a dark soul lost in their own nightmarish world. Kajika comes across as a man used to respect, obedience and being a loner, without faith in anything he cannot see. Ahyoka is like a babbling brook of calming waters, patient, kind, but so very lonely, if not for her powers and the spirits who speak to and guide her.

Ms. Garson’s writing and the world she has created make the pages and time fade away as we become one with the story, the atmosphere and each turn this tale makes. From the first page I was drawn in and held captive by Ms. Garson’s style. A beautiful, raw and powerful romance to enjoy!

I received an ARC edition from Dena Garson in exchange for my honest review.
