I have three loves in my life—my sweetheart of twelve years and hubby for ten, my son, and my writing. Thanks for dropping by my blog post for the Sweetheart Blog Hop. I’d like to start by introducing myself for those who may not know me. My name is Ashlynne Laynne and I’m an author of Erotic Interracial/Multi-Cultural Paranormal Romance. That’s a mouth full—I know—but it helps me appeal to a broader demographic.
Valentine’s Day is not only a day of love celebrated around the world, but it was also the day that my life changed forever. In my younger years, I was very unlucky in love and found myself on the receiving end of heartbreak more times than I care to remember. This left me bitter, cynical, and unbelieving that true love existed for anyone. On February 14, 2002, all of that changed when I met my husband in a Yahoo chat room—yes I met the love of my life online.
It was our fate.
I’m a huge believer in destiny and the theory that nothing happens in your life by coincidence. I find it quite poetic that the day I had grown to hate, essentially became the day that changed the way I felt about love. Meeting Mark was the beginning of a difficult road of healing. He’s stood by me and loved me unconditionally. Having him makes it so easy to write the love and passion my readers have come to expect in my Progeny Series.

At its core, The Progeny Series is simply about a man and woman who fall in love. The fact that he’s a half-blood (half-human, half vampire) and she’s a Wiccan human are secondary factors. When we meet Ascher, he’s grumpy. Frankly, who could blame him? He’s engaged to seal to Ursula—a cold and careless vampire who wants nothing more than to get her hands on a bloodstone— and he feels conflicted about his existence.
All of that changes when he meets Shawnette McCutchin. She’s beautiful, intriguing and possesses some of the most potent blood that he’s ever smelled. A war immediately begins inside Ascher. He craves Shauna’s blood just as much as he craves her body and the closer they get, the harder it is for him to control his urges. After Ascher calls off the sealing to Ursula, the trouble begins. His family’s peaceful period ends when Ursula’s army attacks the Rousseaus.
This series encompasses a family dynamic of which we’ve never seen. The Rousseaus share a common mortal and immortal bloodline, but loyalty is the thread binding this clan. Shauna and Ascher’s dissuaded love only strengthens the family bonds. Their unique union transcends bloodlines and completes the prophecy, defying the beliefs of centuries old covenants while shattering the wall between the Wiccan and vampire worlds that has existed for ages. This series is erotic paranormal romance intended for adults, as it contains adult sensuality, language and themes.
BLOOD REBORN (The Progeny Series #4)
“Hell hath no fury like a Wiccan reborn.”
Shauna McCutchin and Ascher Rousseau share a deep and passionate bond that merges their Wiccan and vampire worlds. Destined, they’ve endured trials and suffered unimaginable pain in their quest for a happily ever after.
Endowed with amazing supernatural abilities and the added attributes of her new vampire existence, Shauna is a force to rival all others—a dangerous new breed of vampire that defies conventional wisdom.
Darkness shrouds the couple’s pasts and enemies are determined to ruin their future. Will Shauna surrender to the evil side of her nature, or will she stand by Ascher’s side as the Rousseaus prepare for the revolution?
Shauna will either be an immortal miracle or an unholy menace.
