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.


I’m not a good guy and I don’t pretend to be. Condemn me if you want, I don’t give a fuck. 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.

Paranormal romance with erotic elements. Full-length novel. Come meet the Scars.

Scars: Immortal warriors with capabilities derived from the senses: Trackers, Sounders, Healers, Tasters, Visionaries, and the rare Reflectors. They each have what is known as an Ink, a tattoo that can be called life

Review by Karen


Take (Scars of the Wraiths) by Nashoda Rose is a paranormal romance with erotic undertones .   It is written in the point of view of both main characters Jasper and Max, both of which have had very hard lives.  Jasper is a Scars assassin and has shut down emotional because of a previous major mistake.  Max, has been devastated by her past, a horrid one that has left real scars on her psyche and body.  The first chapter is very well written with a great introduction to the world that Rose is building.  Then the world building stops and most everything that was mentioned in the glossary was not even touched upon in the story.  I felt as if I was missing a book, which is sad, because I wanted more of the story and for the world building to have been fleshed out.  The main plot is about two people who are damaged and have major trust issues, and the paranormal elements are very light.   I really wanted to know more about the Scar society, and the bad guys that stalked it.

As with all paranormal/urban fantasy books I will be reading other books in the series, as some great series needed a few books to find their footing, and Rose has the writing chops to bring this about.
