Ash (The Dogs of War) by Meg Jackson

Ash (The Dogs of War)

From bestselling author Meg Jackson...

Ash is the President of the Dogs of War, but he's kept his past a secret from the rest of the town, even those closest to him. His family runs the North Carolina chapter of one of the most powerful motorcycle clubs in the south, The Southern Sons. He was next in line to take control of the club, but after his mother's death he wanted no part of the lifestyle that killed her. Now, he's in the exact position he'd tried to avoid. 

Cyn has finally gotten the courage to return to her hometown. With her sister turning tricks for the Devil's Due and her brother dead at their hands, she knows that she'll never find peace until she makes things right. She plans on getting her sister back from the Devil's Due's clutches, and finding some way to avenge her brother.

Their love, and the tension between the gangs, explode all at once.

Read an excerpt:
“Hold this,” she ordered, disappearing into the bathroom. When she returned, she was holding antibiotic cream. Slathering it onto her fingers, she lifted them to his cheek, where an open wound was leaking blood. Before she could make contact, though, he grabbed her wrist. Grabbed it too damn hard. Her eyes opened wide, fright and lust fighting inside her. The last time he'd grabbed her like that...

“Don't,” he growled, making eye contact with her for the first time. “Don't touch me.”

For a moment, Cyn was shocked into silence.

But only for a moment.


She demanded it, the question not really a question at all. She knew why. And ever since the day before, when he'd held her so damn tight and they'd remembered what had been between them, she couldn't forget.

The energy in his eyes now was equal to the energy he'd pummeled into her when he'd taken her virginity.


His voice, all grit and gravel, trailed off.

“Because you need me,” she hissed, moving her hand to his cut, the pain of the astringent hissing over his bare flesh. He still held her wrist, and now his grip tightened. 
“Yes,” he said, wrenching her hand around her back and lowering his face to hers. “But not in a good way, Cyn. You get it?”

His breath was hot on her face, against her lips, their mouths so close. Their eyes, open to each other, were power lines, everything flowing in between.

She would be his release. His outlet. She would take his rage, turn it into ecstasy.

She would do it because she needed it as much as he did.

A guy writing romance? Guest post by A.L. Awtrey, author of Letting Go


Today I would like to extend a warm welcome to author A.L. Awtrey, who happens to be a male writing romance. Here he talks a bit about what it was like to write this book.

A guy writing romance?

I usually get that response whenever I tell people what I write. I’m not the first guy to write romantic suspense, but it’s interesting to see the different reactions. Some of my buddies gave me a hard time when I announced Letting Go was coming out, but then a few of them read it. One good friend insists it’s just a thriller because he doesn’t like romances.

When I started writing fiction again a few years ago, I tried to write a story that had been simmering in my mind for a decade. My personal reading tastes go toward suspense and speculative fiction, and this story was set in a fantasy world where an empire was on the verge of collapse. I started writing it out, but it just didn’t work very well and I didn’t know why.

I asked for help from some online forums, but getting critiqued was brutal. I was paralyzed between my vision of the story and the advice from more experienced authors. In the end, I wasn’t willing to change the story enough to save it. One forum member suggested I change genres and practice storytelling with other stories I’d be more willing to change.

No one would read my bad fantasy novel, but I quickly discovered that many people would take a chance on stories in the romance and thriller genres. So I began to write scenes and vignettes to practice my storytelling skills in response to writing prompts. Before long, I had a novel length story drafted. Then I started another. Each story helped me focus on different aspects of storytelling.

While I worked on my skills, I began putting together my personal list of storytelling rules. Start with a good hook. Conflict is essential. Characters must feel real. Traditional story structures work. Writing is editing. When I started Letting Go, I knew I wanted to publish it and wrote it for that purpose.

To me, it’s not a romance or even a thriller. Those are artificial categories we invented to market books. Letting Go is a glimpse into the lives of people forming a new family. I wanted the characters to feel like they could live next door, with concerns that connected to our own. When the story was finished and edited, I considered it the best thing I’ve ever written.

So before anyone knocks a guy for writing romance, give the story a chance. The language might be a bit salty in places, because we all let it rip at times. The romantic tension is realistic and while it’s not overly explicit, there is a moment of physical intimacy that is necessary for the characters’ journey. In the end, my hope is that you’ll feel a strong connection to the characters of Alex and Molly. And if you like the story, I’ve got a sequel plotted out for a spring 2017 release.

Letting Go

Despite his wealth, Alex Thompson has been living in fear since his wife died in childbirth. A frivolous wrongful death lawsuit, harassing phone calls, and anonymous threats drive him and his five-year-old twins away from their home in Houston and into the crosshairs of a sniper.

Molly McDill is a struggling single mom who lives next door to Alex and his twins. When she helps them adjust to their new life in the country, she exposes herself and her son to the same threat that followed Alex.

An attempt on his life throws their lives into chaos, inviting more threats, public scrutiny, and Molly's ex-husband back into her life. The tension tests the attraction they feel toward each other as they struggle to keep life normal for their kids.

Alex still doesn't know who wants him dead but suspects his former in-laws. As the threats become a visceral danger, Alex and Molly race to uncover the secret that died with his wife before it costs them everything.
