ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date February 6, 2017
A killer . . . that’s what I am.
It’s what I do.
It’s what I live for.
I’m no longer the Preston Hale everyone knew. I left that life and the people in it a long time ago the second I made my first kill. I wasn’t going to give in, but when I heard the screams there was no going back.
It triggered the pain, the need.
I knew what I had to do, and I did it well. But I never expected for Emma Turner – the only link to my past – to come back into my life.
She triggers a different emotion inside me, something I hadn’t ever felt.
It’s not a want to kill . . . but a need to CLAIM.
REVIEW: TRIGGER is the first installment in L.P. Dover’s contemporary, adult CIRCLE OF JUSTICE romantic, suspense series. This is assassin for hire Preston Hale, and twenty seven year old PA Emma Turner’s second chance story line.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Preston and Emma) TRIGGER focuses on betrayal, revenge, second chances and happily ever afters. Preston Hale is an assassin for hire; a professional hitman above the law who answers to a secret government agency known as the Circle of Justice, well aware of Preston’s need for revenge. Years earlier, our hero lost everything and every one he had ever cared about; an unsolved murder that killed his mother and younger sister Cameron, leaving behind a heartbroken Preston and a father who never fully recovered. Meeting Emma Turner found Preston over protective and vigilant as it pertained to the woman that called to his heart but a woman he left behind when retribution became a part of his future and his blood. Fast forward eight years wherein Preston will come face to face with his past, and the cycle of murder and death begins anew. Enter Emma Turner, the woman Preston has never forgotten, and the woman who will become the target of a psychotic mind. What ensues is the rekindling romance between Preston and Emma; a copy cat killing with similarities to Cameron’s murder; and the couple’s search for the person responsible for the murder of Preston’s sister and mom.
Preston Hale is a killing machine. He is a man who takes down the lowest of the low-the rapists, pedophiles and child molester, and a man who kills without a conscience or shame. Emma Turner is the PA for a wealthy businessman whose interests extend beyond contracts and deals. But when Emma’s latest assignment brings her up close and personal with Preston Hale, our heroine will lose her heart to the man she has always loved. The $ex scenes are intimate and provocative.
We are introduced to Emma’s boss, and Preston’s handler Glenn Chandler of Chandler Enterprises, as well as his sons : eldest Wade, and twins Ian and Bryce; the housekeeper Mrs. Walker; and musician John Tallman. Emma’s best friends Cliff and Andrea play secondary roles but have a close connection to Preston Hale. The requisite evil is a familiar face from the past.
The world building focuses on betrayal and retribution; on a rekindling love between two people torn apart by grief and an overwhelming need to avenge and protect. The guilt party is easily deduced once introduced into the story line premise.
TRIGGER is an emotional story line; a heartbreaking look at the devastating aftermath when a double homicide destroys a once, tight knit loving family. The premise is suspenseful and riveting; the characters are passionate and charismatic; the romance is a second chance at a happily ever after. L.P. Dover’s TRIGGER is a dramatic story line of family, loss, retribution and revenge.
