‘Jennie Taylor receives an unexpected gift; a Texan ranch!
After the sudden death of his father Jared Stewart is forced to come to terms with sharing control of his family ranch. Reunited with her first love Jennie’s heart still belongs to Jared. She is determined to prove her commitment to him and the ranch by discovering who is behind the series of dangerous accidents that threaten the ranch’s viability.
Finally acknowledging his love for Jennie can Jared’s protectiveness keep her safe? Or will her recklessness lead her into irrevocable peril ending their chance of love forever?’

Here’s a snippet from ‘The Dangerous Gift’ my romantic suspense story.

Jared bent down and scooped Jennie into his muscular arms. Her mind protested. Her needy body snuggled into his safe, protective embrace. Exhaustion won over principles. It seemed churlish to refuse his comfort. He carried her as if she weighed nothing and placed her amid the couch’s cushions. The forgotten invitation card fell from his pocket into Jennie’s lap. The words stared back at her. She shivered. Someone hated her.

Jennie fought sleep. Jared moved round the modern kitchen with quiet expertise.”I didn’t realise you could cook.” The golden omelette slipped easily from the pan onto the waiting plate. Jared looked across at her.

“Never said I couldn’t but if someone does it for me I don’t object.”

She hobbled over to the work counter. A lick of fire rushed to her core when his fingers’ grazed hers as she took the plate. She risked a glance at Jared anxious to see if the chemistry affected him too. He averted his gaze. Flustered she heaped too much salad onto her plate and headed for the scrubbed pine table in the middle of the room. The fluffy and light omelette melted in her mouth. Her stomach growled in appreciation. Jared added salad to his own plate before he joined her.”This is good Jared. I’m so hungry.”

The Dangerous Gift: Writing Journey Update – Jane Hunt

the dangerous gift

So as promised in my Thursday post about The Revenge Masquerade This weekend I’m blogging about my next project. The Dangerous Gift. Regular followers of my blog will recall  I started this book last year and entered the first chapter in the SYTYCW 2013.

I fully intended to finish it but after completing and editing the first half  I started a different book ”Past Shadows for NaNoWriMo in November. In December I was swept into the whirlwind of The Dragon Legacy’s publication and all the associated promotion.When I found time to write again in January I decided to go with ‘The Revenge Masquerade’ – Jasmine and Zane’s story and The Dangerous Gift was put on hold.

Now May is drawing to a close I decided to read through what I’d written of The Dangerous Gift and I was surprised how well it read.  Even though I knew what was going to happen I still wanted to turn the pages to find out if I was right. So I’ve taken this as a sign to concentrate on finishing my romantic suspense and see what its like when I finished it. 🙂

If you like to know more about ‘The  Dangerous Gift’ check out my Pinterest board ‘The Dangerous Gift’ and The Dangerous Gift page here on my website. I’ll post a snippet of what I’ve written so far in my Sunday Snippet post  later.
