~ 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!
The Dove (Novella)
This story was everything I thought it would be and more!! Two lost souls finding each other to begin the path of healing together. This story is a deep, emotionally charged and heart wrenching romance with hope and redemption as the outcome. This book will definitely give you a book hangover but I recommend you don't want to pass it over!! This is a 10 star romance no doubt!
You need to meet the Creed Brothers
~Five brothers, one famiy tragedy, untold heartache.~
The first Creed brother we meet is Asher. He works in the local prison after a career ending injury in the Army. When approached by Genevieve to do an interview on an inmate on death row he is wary and turns her down. He finally agrees and this leads to some sexual tension with the sexy reporter. Genevieve was a genuine character. She has some secrets in her past and because of this focuses on reporting on true crimes When Asher and her start a relationship his familiy asks her to revive the story of Asher’s sisters disappearance. The famliy want’s closure but will this just bring them more heartache? The disappearance of Claire put a wedge in the Creed family. As they all try to cope with the pain they try to become closer as a family. When new evidence is found will it lead to some answers?
Ms. Allen always writes a great story with characters that bring out the feelings. Her stories flow so that you feel like you are right there among the characters feeling the pain and the happiness. There is just the right amount of family, frienship, love, heartache, and turmoil to keep you turning the pages. This is ony the first book and I am ready counting down the days until we meet the rest of the Creed brothers. I know it will be a nail biting time until we find the truth about Claire’s disappearance.
I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book.
Wow! What a great read!
Wow! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this one and I can’t say enough about the story that Shauna Allen has put together. There was romance, there was mystery, and there was drama, all of which served to lay the foundation of telling the story of the Creed family – a story I can’t wait to see unravel and unfold!
I really loved the romance between to Asher and Genevieve. Two broken people who find each other and offer just what the other needs, when they need it. I liked that these two didn’t play games with their attraction for one another, they pretty much put it out there and acted on it. And when things start to get more real between them, and they both realize that maybe happy for now might turn into happy ever after, it was beautiful watching these two find that happiness, something neither of them thought they would ever deserve and had never let themselves hope to find. And Asher…*sigh*…even though he wasn’t perfect, he was real and sweet and could definitely bring the heat (and maybe even a little kink!)…and it was hard not to fall in love with him!
In addition to telling Asher and Genevieve’s story, we get to meet the Creed family, a family that has suffered a great loss and can’t seem to move past the pain. They go through the motions of living, but they are all a bit broken, and rather than open up to each other to heal, they have all found their own coping mechanisms.
The author has done such a fabulous job introducing us to each of the characters and giving just enough of each of them to have me anxiously awaiting the next book in this series to come out. And using a male first person POV...well played, Ms. Allen! (And thank you for not making us wait too long for the next book!)
Shauna Allen has started this series off with a story that runs the gamut of emotions but still leaves you feeling like you have been wrapped up in a warm hug. The writing displayed emotion that was real and made you feel like you were part of the story and not just reading a book. I highly recommend this book - it's become one of my top reads this year, and if the rest of this series is half as good they will all make my top reads list! This is one series that is worth checking out!
