Ghost (Executioners #1) by J.M. Dabney

Amazon Link


Gideon Jane earned the name Ghost for his reclusive nature when he joined a group of guys in Powers, Georgia in a band called Executioners. It had been his way of settling into small town life after living in New York for the past twenty years. He loved the band and his small organic farm. What he didn’t love was being single, but it appeared it was his new reality. He didn’t want his ex back, although he did want something. What that was eluded him until the evening he walked into Nightingale’s Books.

Small town girl Harper Sage knew pain, and she’d lived with it—she had the scars both mental and physical to prove it. It would’ve been easier to hop in her car to find safety and anonymity, but Harper stayed to prove she was stronger than hurled fists and bruising prejudice. She found herself within the safety of a close-knit group of rough bikers and bar bouncers. That didn’t mean it was all perfect.

What’s a girl to do when she craves normalcy and acceptance: she just smiles. Choices are made, some with dire consequences and others that bring her closer to her dream. Will she make the right decision or finally discover escape is her best option?

Author Note: This book contains scenes of violence and descriptions of self-harm.


I was both really dreading this and anticipating the hell out of it!

I KNEW Harper’s story was going to be rough – everything leading up to gave the impression that she knew nothing but pain in her life – well, this shows just how awful her life has been – worse than I thought. My heart ached for her and I was so, so pleased for her to find someone who could love her like she needed to be loved.

I thought the author handled the sex scenes very gracefully and with a lot of tenderness and dignity while not pulling any punches nor sacrificing any sensuality or emotion without being clinical or abrasive.
