Deacon (Unfinished Hero #4) by Kristen Ashley ~Blog Tour~


First, I need to say that Kristen Ashley is one of my all time favorite authors. Truly she is. Her books always leave me feeling as if I’ve just plunged into a warm pool at the end of a long summer day: soothed, relaxed, happy and sated. Few can do that. I mean, how many times do you close a book and think “What the heck was that?” I know what I am going to get when I start a KA novel: women that are strong, courageous and self sufficient; Alpha males that will be honest, caring, strong, and good in the sack. (winky face)

Deacon is no different. It’s about a young woman with goals and ambitions and all she wants is to share it with the guy she loves. That’s until she realizes he really doesn’t love her or her life plan the way that she thought he had. Amongst all this, a stranger shows up and keeps showing up for years. You see, she runs a vacation spot consisting of remote cabins. It’s quiet, peaceful, and just what Deacon needs.

If you are a KA reader, you’ve had brushes with Deacon before. The cold, dead eyed ghost of a man really needs to have a place to go when he has down time. For whatever reason, this is the place he keeps coming back to. It takes one Christmas Eve to change things and years later to figure out that that change is exactly what he needs.
I really don’t want to spoil it for you. Jump in the warm water and find out for yourself if a ghost can be resurrected. 

A perfect end of summer read that will take you to the Colorado Mountains.

Deacon has an ugly history, a history that broke him, leaving him a ghost of a man. Out of necessity, he left the normal world to descend into the criminal world and found he fit. So he stayed. Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone.

Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine.

Suddenly, Deacon finds he’s at war. Cassidy’s pull for him to connect is strong. He fights it, but he loses, always coming back for more. But when he does, he gives her nothing.

From the first time she sees him, Cassidy knows Deacon is dead inside. She knows he’s the kind of man who could destroy a woman. But one night when Deacon’s control slips, Cassidy takes a chance.

He might break her. He also might be her dream come true.

Picture I was born a middle class white child in Gary, Indiana, USA. One of the last of a dying breed. I nearly killed my mother and myself making it into the world, seeing as I had the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck (already attempting to accessorize and I hadn’t taken my first breath!). Mom says they took me away, put her back in her room, she looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). She remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

All I’ve ever wanted to do was write (well, and be the Queen of the World, but you gotta start small) and I’ve published a gazillion books and counting (and a gazillion is a lot! shoo!).You can learn about my titles that have been released or that are soon to be released in the Titles section of the website.

Even though I jump genres, there is always a theme to my books…humor (hopefully), engaging characters (again, hopefully) and romance (definitely).

My loves are movies, music, food and fashion and I partake of all of them as often as I can (the middle two more than the others, the former, which takes time I don’t often have and the latter, which takes money I rarely have). In fact, I love food so much, I like to share my good fortune so I put my recipes on offer for you on this page (see top menu and don't miss them, they're awesome!).

I grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and have lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus I'm blessed to have friends and family around the globe. My family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write and growing up it was large and multi-generational. We all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. I grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as I keep growing up, it keeps getting better.

So here I am, thank goodness.
