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.


A 5starReview of TRIGGER by L.P. Dover

“The high that buzzed through my body felt like nothing I’d ever experienced before. There was no remorse, no guilt for what I’d done. He deserved to die, like the countless other men out there who preyed on innocent women.”

L.P. Dover masterfully brings to life a story that will trigger your emotions. Filled with heartache, angst, grit, passion, and heated chemistry, this intense and suspenseful story will have you on the edge of your seats and turning pages to seek justice and find a second chance at love.  This is one story you won’t want to put down!

Preston is a strong alpha-male with demons from the past driving him to seek revenge and justice. His life is not his own, believing he is not worthy of happiness, friendship, or love. He has a job to do and a debt to pay. But when he is forced to return to his hometown, to the memories he has tried so hard to run from, he will need to find an inner strength to survive. And having the help and support of someone your heart has wanted to forget, makes it all that more difficult.

Emma is a force to be reckoned with. Although her plans for life have not worked out the way she expected after college, she has a good paying job. It even comes with a few perks—enjoying the salty air and still having some time to focus on her writing. But when her job brings her back to the one person who broke her heart, she must determine if forgiveness can be given. It is through her inner strength, intelligence, and her unyielding love and compassion that readers will connect with Emma and hope for her to find her HEA.

The heart knows what the heart wants, but the mind must be able to forgive and move forward. As Emma and Preston find themselves reliving the past, the truth about the present and the future will be revealed.

The chemistry these two bring to the pages is deep and seductive, and the action moves this story forward at a steady pace. What a brilliant look at the inner working of a professional assassin. And as L.P. Dover does, she has developed a cast of secondary characters that support the story and offer a glimpse into a new read her fans are sure to love.

The Circle of Justice series has brought forth a new group of men to swoon over. As part of an elite group, these men exact justice—offering revenge and retaliation for some of the most heinous of crimes. And watching a tough man fall to his knees when love takes hold makes this girl giddy. Preston’s story was phenomenal, but I can’t wait to see how the brooding Wade will become the next Target of love.
