Blinded by anger, the man who had sworn to protect me,
shot me in a fit of rage when I was only sixteen years old.
He thought he killed me.
But my job wasn’t finished yet.
My days are spent as President of the Heaven’s Guardians MC.
Nights are spent searching for the scum of the earth.
Rapists, Murderers, Pedophiles.
They all answer to me.
I thought I’d seen it all.
Thought my heart couldn’t be any darker.
Thought I knew exactly how far I was willing to go.
Then a battered and broken woman was found behind our clubhouse,
and I realized, I’ve never had a clue about the monster that lurks within.
They may call me Priest,
but I’d sell my soul to the devil before I let anything take her away from me.

“Just as a shepherd leads his herd, you too, shall lead. Find them, guide them. Be patient, Priest, and you will be rewarded. Until then, Guard Heaven.”
Washed In Blood by Ashley Lane is the first novel in the Heaven’s Guardians MC series AND it’s also Ashley’s DEBUT novel! MC romance is a trope that I enjoy so I figured I would give this one a shot, I am SOO glad that I did! What an absolutely amazing debut, seriously I am speechless! Told in dual POV we start this kickass series off with the President of the Heavens Guardians MC, Priest. Trust me when I tell you, this is one you do NOT want to miss!
Kingston “Priest” has had a less than stellar childhood. After facing so many horrors as a child, a trauma occurs in his teens that leads to Priest dying for 8 mins and 57 seconds. During those minutes he speaks to the angel of death who sends him back.
“We all have scars. Some of them we bare on the outside for the world to see, some we carry on the inside, close to our hearts.”
Priest has been given a second chance and he’s using it to protect the innocent and serve justice the only way he knows how. Priest is the president of the Heaven’s Guardian MC, a group of men who protect the innocent, serving their own style of justice. Each member has been through something that has shaped them into the men they are today.
“I’m the judge, the jury, and the executioner.”
When an alarm on the property goes off Priest and Bullet go to check it out. Never in a million years could they of imagined just what they’d find when they got there. A girl, hidden in the hollowed-out trunk of a tree.
Immediately Priest feels a need to protect this girl, his first thought is “mine” but he has no idea why.
At 20 years old Willow James is pregnant, homeless and on the run from an abusive husband when she finds herself back in Aspen, Colorado. But just when poor Willow escapes one hell, she finds herself in more trouble then she could have bargained for.
When she’s suddenly rescued by Priest and brought back to the MC she’s not sure who she can trust.
Can Willow trust Priest with her secrets? Will Priest accept Willow and all her baggage? Or will the past come back to haunt her?

From the first page till the last page, I was completely enthralled in this story. There’s just enough sexiness, suspense, and secrets that it’ll keep you flipping pages to uncover all that’s still hidden.
I’m not really big on the whole insta-love thing unless it’s in a novella then I can understand, full-length novels such as this I prefer the characters to work for it, but I actually didn’t mind it in this one. With the way these two first meet and after the things that they BOTH have been through, insta-love/insta-chemistry was a must. But even with the whole insta love thing, the characters were still well developed throughout the story so again, it worked for me.
“Not all Demons you encounter in your life will be bad. A Bullet doesn’t always hit its intended mark. Stay vigilant for Angels, and always keep a Patch close, you never know when you’ll need one.”
The secondary characters, gahhh I loved ALL of these guys, Bullet, Demon, Patch, and Angel as I mentioned they ALL have been through some dark things in their past that have shaped them into the men they are today, we get a little glimpse into a couple of them but I can NOT wait to delve deeper into ALL of their stories, especially Demon’s. I have a feeling that big ol’ asshole is actually a big ol’ teddy bear… especially when he visited Willow when no one knew he went… yea I can’t wait for his story and I’m thinking it’s gonna have something to do with Diego’s sister, Isadora. I’m hoping anyway!
I absolutely LOVED this book, and if this is what we get with Ashely’s FIRST release, then I can only imagine how amazing the rest of this series is going to be! I am most definitely looking forward to it that’s for sure!
“As soon as I held her in my arms, everything else ceased to exist. Like a puzzle piece clicking into place, I found my north.”

About The Author
Ashley Lane has been passionate about words her entire life.
Her true love affair with books began when her husband surprised her with a Kindle for Christmas in 2014. Since then, she’s become infatuated with words and the way they can break her but make her whole at the same time.
Ashley’s love for reading transformed and became a need to share stories that have been inside her head and heart for years. In 2018 after some much convincing on her husbands part, she opened a Word document, and Priest and the Heaven’s Guardians MC was born.
Being the boy mom of an almost 2-year-old and 9-year-old means she lives off Goldfish crumbs and Diet Coke. But when she does have a spare minute of time to herself, you can typically find her parked on the couch, Kindle within reach, catching up on the previous week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy or Hell’s Kitchen.
