Storm’s younger cousin. Vandal’s little brother. You’ve met him in the background. The sweet one. The nice one. The one they can all rely on. The good one. He’s a tattoo artist. He plays metal and classical music – on the violin. He’s got a body built for sin. He’s 24. In comes Ivy. She’s a 36 year old single mom who hasn’t dated in 18 years. All she wanted was a tattoo. She got a helluva lot more 🙂 Being good has never been so bad.
Carian Cole does it every time. I feel in love with Storm and never thought anyone would top him. Then Vandal came along, and all that heartache, I couldn’t help myself from falling head of heels for him. But Lukas…Lukas takes the cake. He is everything you want in the man you will spend the rest of your life with. He is loyal, sexy, kind, caring, protective, and honest. He has means to take care of his woman, if only said woman will get over her issues and love him!!!
Ivy has been burned by her husband of 18 years. He has turned her entire world upside down, and she is just grasping at straws at how to move on with the aftermath of her marriage. She never expected Lukas to stir up feelings in her that she has never felt. Her world was falling down around her, but this 24 year old tattoo artist/musician seems to be the only thing to make her world brighter.
Lukas and Ivy’s story really got to me. Deep down in my heart, it got me. I loved that no matter how much she fought him, he never once gave up on her and their future.
It killed me to learn about Katie’s death in Vandal, but seeing it from Lukas angle has gutted me!! I was a complete mess. My heart was shredded, shredded!! I wanted to jump my ass into this book and bring her back to life!!!
The ending I never saw coming. I still am trying to wrap my head around the biggest scum of the earth, and how he could ever think that it was right what he did!! I won’t spoil if for you, but I am sure you will feel my anger right along with me!!
I LOVE that Macy’s BFF is Shelly!!! Love seeing my name in stories !! Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down. I read it all in one sitting, and it took me by storm!!! Every book just gets better and better. Even though I really loved Storm, Vandal stole my heart, and Lukas has done it yet again. I love how they all have been so very different from each other but each one amazing in its own. I honestly think Lukas is Carian’s best book yet!! Don’t miss out on it!!!

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.
My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, was published in September of 2014 and book 2, Vandal, was published in February 2015 with several more of this series planned throughout 2015.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
