The Executioner

#1, The Family Creed

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


~ Five brothers, one family tragedy, untold heartache. ~

A stray bullet ended my Army career, forcing me to follow in my father’s prison guard footsteps.

My sister’s disappearance ten years ago annihilated my family, forcing each of us to find a way to cope.

But I’ve survived. Adapted.

At least until Genevieve Stone showed up, digging into the truth in the name of journalism and finding her way deep under my skin. I’m determined to do whatever it takes to find my sister, but when the case is blown wide open by the sexy reporter, I’m left with the ultimate question . . . can I trust her?

I’m a soldier, heart and soul.

I don’t do love.

War and death and pain are my church.

My name is Asher Creed.

I am the Executioner.

***Reader note: This is the first of a 6-part emotional family saga series. Each story is 100% male first-person point-of-view, and while each full-length novel is guaranteed to have a complete HEA romance, their family mystery remains unsolved until the end of the series.

***Due to profanity, mild violence and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. Also, please note the title. The hero is, in fact, an executioner on death row. While there is no intent to make any social or political statements, please do not read if this will be offensive to you.

Catch the rest of the Creed boys (and girl) very, very soon!

Customer Reviews

Shauna Allen is one of my favorite authors! Highly recommended!

Shauna Allen has been a favorite of mine since I first read Inked by an Angel! She writes the most believable characters, that you can't help becoming invested in their lives. This is the start of the Family Creed series. Asher Creed (who was introduced in Awakening Aubrey) is a death row executioner that meets his match in true crime reporter Genevieve Stone. The Creed families youngest and only daughter disappeared over ten years ago without a trace, until Genevieve's story about the Creeds is published. Now some new information surfaces which may or may not lead them to Claire's whereabouts. This is the first in a six part series.

Great start to what I'm hoping is an excellent series

5 stars

A family of hot, Creed men in pain needs someone to heal them… right? I volunteer as tribute !!
This series is going to be awesome! The drama/mystery is real, intense and heartbreaking as the Creed family tries to discover what happened with their baby sister 10 years ago. The mystery is not solved in the first book and I have a feeling will not be solved until her twin Silas gets his story. For this I curse the author, I have zero patience right now wanting to know what happens in the search for Claire
As for the Executioner!!!! Asher is hot, broody, emotional and a really great guy. Ex army ranger he's strong and as the oldest Creed brother, helps keep the family moving.
Genevieve (great, uncommon name) writes criminal news. She witty and outgoing but is that hiding something deeper? It was a lot of fun learning more about this woman and seeing her grow as an emotional person.
The Creed clan is amazing and large, the love in this story goes beyond just the H/h relationship and the sex is hot with a slight bit of domenering kink! Can't wait for the next book!

Compelling, exciting start to a new family saga for the Creed's

Compelling. The Executioner pulled me in on page 1 and kept me enthralled from page to page. We meet the Creed family as Asher, oldest son, tells us his story. This is an amazing family, that has supported and loved each other over the years but when a tragedy happens, their sister disappears, it shakes their foundation. Asher found purpose in the military until an injury sent him home. Losing that career really altered his direction, to me he was lost. He became a prison guard, following in his father’s footsteps and ended up working death row. I marvel at his ability to work in that environment while he stays true to himself and all his wonderfully sexy and endearing alpha tendencies. When he meets Genevieve Stone, well, she is that perfect foil to his gruff exterior. She doesn’t take his crap and really forces him to look at the world around him. I loved Genevieve’s strength, as a journalist she challenges herself to write the tough stories with integrity. Through her work, she gets to meet the entire Creed family. Genevieve is just as complex as Asher is and it was wonderful as they each revealed parts of themselves that they found similarities that they shared. The true challenge will be if Asher and Genevieve can open themselves to love. I enjoyed every moment of this intense, drama filled and sexy journey. So excited to experience the rest of the Creed family’s saga. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
