There were a few things that got Owen Quade through his multiple combat tours.  One was the dream of riding a custom motorcycle on a winding mountain road.  The former Marine had finally managed to complete that goal, and along the way he’d gained his own bike shop and the mechanic to go with it.  She was a rare beauty, and he wasn’t talking about his bike either.

Prue Whitaker preferred working on engines over rubbing shoulders with people, and that included her boss.  She’d learned the hard way that men weren’t as reliable as the hogs she could repair and she kept her distance from those who didn’t feel the same way.  She’d been successful until she’d recently shared a scorching kiss with Owen.

One phone call had changed everything.  A catastrophic event is on the verge of occurring, forcing them to pack up and leave everything behind.  Prue is driven to trust Owen, who’s given his word that he can get her to safety.  Through the endless days of darkness, passion and intrigue await them as they make their way through ashes and into the flames of tomorrow.

Series Description: The world as they know it is about to change. The Yellowstone Caldera has erupted in an apocalyptic fashion, triggering simultaneous events around the world. The one thing that will either bring society together or rip their lives apart is the need for survival as a group. A company of former Marines will do whatever it takes to reach an area in the far recesses of northeastern Washington State, a region they feel is uniquely equipped for endurance and existence in what is left of the crumbling infrastructure of the United States. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their stories as these brave men and women face the harsh, fiery elements of an inevitable apocalypse while encountering passion, intrigue, and suspense…

About the author

Kennedy Layne--USA Today Bestselling Author

First and foremost, I love life. I love that I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister...and a writer.

I am one of the lucky women in this world who gets to do what makes them happy. As long as I have a cup of coffee (maybe two or three) and my laptop, the stories evolve themselves and I try to do them justice. I draw my inspiration from a retired Marine Master Sergeant that swept me off of my feet and has drawn me into a world that fulfills all of my deepest and darkest desires. Smoldering romance, military men, intrigue, with a little bit of kinky chili pepper (his recipe), fill my head and there is nothing more satisfying than making the hero and heroine fulfill their destinies.

Thank you for having joined me on their journeys...

Betrayal and desperation are a dangerous combination in this thrilling continuation of the Surviving Ashes series by USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne... 

Berke Daniels has learned to live as if there is no tomorrow, because he knows firsthand it can all be taken away in a moment. His only family consists of those men he’d served with in the Corps, and he’s been thinking about leaving Texas and being closer to his brothers-in-arms. 

Maxie Denikin has lived up to her father’s expectations and more in her achievements thus far as a decorated police officer. She’s dedicated her life to the law, yet had little desire to raise a family after watching her own pull apart a piece at a time. Imagine her surprise when she became a surrogate mother to a one-year-old boy who’d basically been abandoned in her arms. 

Berke learned long ago to be prepared for anything, but an eruption at Yellowstone National Park hadn’t been on his top ten most likely list. He’d planned on getting out on his own and making his way to where his team had gathered, but Maxie made that impossible when she did the unthinkable—she took him into custody. Desire burns deep as they both do their best to protect a young child while eluding the fiery elements around them to reach a safe haven that isn’t as secure as they once thought.

USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne concludes the Surviving Ashes series with an explosive story where the strength of love rises against the loss of humanity…

Van Overton had given years of service to his country. He’d paid his dues and he no longer needed to put his life on the line. He could live out the rest of his days doing what he did best—making money from inside the heart of the world’s fastest paced financial system.  

Allie James had wished time and again for something—anything—to happen just so she didn’t have to open another eviction notice. She adored the hustle and bustle of the city, her cozy apartment in a good neighborhood, and the rugged looking man across the hall wasn’t half bad to look at either. Regrettably, she’d been thinking more along the lines of winning the lottery than an approaching apocalypse.  

Van should have known his luck wouldn’t hold out, but a supervolcano eruption? It was a good thing his time in the military had taught him to be ready for just about anything. Unfortunately, his next-door neighbor didn’t fit into anyone’s idea of a survival plan. Allie was everything he tried to avoid in a woman, but she was definitely the one who had the ability to steal his heart.

Change is coming…

Maverick Beckett took his much needed annual vacation up to Washington State to relax with his old friends from his years in the Corps.  He also had every intention of extinguishing the fires that arose between him and a certain local woman he couldn’t get out of his mind until the unthinkable happened.

Nothing is as it seems…

Henley Varano loved the simple anonymous life that her remote hometown provided.  She’d had the wealthy existence of a fashion model and the fame that came with it only to find it lonelier than she could have ever imagined.  Unfortunately, men only saw the fictitious person she appeared to be in the magazines and not the real woman she was—even the one man she’s wanted for years.

Surviving is just the beginning…

An apocalyptic event changes the course of their lives when the massive Yellowstone Caldera erupts.  Panic ensues among the small town, causing Mav and Henley to witness the best and worst of humanity.  They must work as a team to create a new existence before the fallout of harsh and fiery elements overtakes their safe haven.  Along the way, they might just find that they need each other more than ever.
