Here’s  a sample of my 5* reviews on Amazon

‘A little romance, a little suspense, a little murder, a little mystery…this book has it all. Hunt did a wonderful job crafting a well-rounded story with well-developed main characters that we quickly fall in love with and root for until the very end. Without giving away the ending, I will tell you that the twists and turns don’t stop until the very last page. Just when you think you have it all figured out, you realize there’s still more to be revealed.’ 5* Review 

‘Jane Hunt did a marvelous job of keeping me on the edge of the seat with twists and turns all the while making you root for the characters you can’t help but to fall in love with.’ 5* Review.

‘ Good storytelling with believable characters and suspense. Great combination. Looking forward to reading more from this author.’ 5* Review

‘The story is written in bite-sized point of view changes and has more of a cosy mystery edge to the suspense that I really enjoyed as it allowed the author to focus on the developing relationship between hero and heroine. Rest assured though, there is still danger, passion, plenty of intrigue and some deft surprises thrown in to keep the interest and enjoyment level high. There is a subtle darkness that is well executed and ramps up nicely throughout the plot so that if, like me, you like your Westerns with a side-order of psychological suspense, you’ll love The Dangerous Gift.’ 5* Review.

5* Review: Haven’s Flame (Fires of Cricket Bend #1) – Marie Piper

27187902

Blurb 2016 -1

High-button dresses aren’t made for hot Texas springs—or the burning desire Haven Anderson has for Deputy Matthew Frank…

After a lifetime of friendship, Matthew and Haven are finally engaged, but he doesn’t seem to share Haven’s emerging passion. Feeling rejected and uncertain about her future, Haven finds herself attracted to the handsome new saloon owner, Hank Porter.

Matthew holds Haven at arm’s length, despite the love smoldering inside him…

Matthew’s father was run out of town years ago for nearly killing his mother, and Matthew fears the lack of control passion can cause. Having been taken in and raised by Haven’s family, he vows to always treat her with affection and respect.

The season brings cattle drives and rowdy cowboys—and Haven can’t stay away from the saloon…

As the doctor’s assistant, Haven tends Hank after a fight, and befriends a lively “upstairs girl,” Callie Lee, despite orders from the Cricket Bend Sheriff—her father—to have nothing to do with anyone at the saloon.

Along with the cattle drive come the lawless McKenzie brothers, a rude bounty hunter, and rumors of a dangerous man, Walker, headed their way. Caught up in this whirlwind, Haven remains torn between her love for the romantically distant Matthew and the more earthy passion offered by Hank and his scandalous reputation.

Should she follow her heart or the desire that puts everything she’s known at risk? Or even more importantly, will the people she loves still be standing in the aftermath of…

My Review 2016-1

Haven's Flame (Fires of Cricket Bend #1)This is an engaging read, even if you are’t a die-hard historical, western romance fan.
The setting is authentic and vividly described; you can taste the dust, smell the horses and hear the shouts and calls of the cowboys, as they fight in the saloon. The residents of Cricket Bend are equally realistic, without being stereotypical.
Haven is tough minded young women, brought up in a loving home but now she has no one to confide in, as she struggles with her feelings for Matthew, the man she grew up with and is about to marry. Matthew is the strong and silent type, epitomised in American Westerns, a good man, he treats Haven like fine china, not realising she is a flesh and blood with needs he must understand and satisfy.
Callie and Hank are the antithesis of Haven and Matthew and both have a vital role to play in the young couple’s lives. These are complex characters, flawed but not necessarily bad. Other characters enrich this romantic story, notably the sheriff, the busybody women’s society and the cowboys just passing through. The effect is breathtaking.
The plot has enough twists to make it hard to put down and the ending is exciting and romantic. I look forward to the next book in the series; ‘Emma’s Blaze’.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

The Dangerous Gift FRONT COVER

 

Blurb 2016- 2

 

After a tragic plane crash kills Jennie Taylor’s guardians, she returns to her childhood home—and her first love, Jared Stewart.

At just eighteen years old, Jennie had left the Unicorn Ranch in Texas to seek a life in the outside world. But she wasn’t just running toward independence. Heartbroken and confused, Jennie fled her home after Jared harshly rejected her on the eve of her birthday.

Now she must choose between making a new life on the ranch she has grown to love, or returning to her simple but empty life in England. The choice seems obvious at first, but nothing in life is simple…

Jared is forced to share control of his beloved ranch with the woman he wants but can’t have.

When Jennie receives an anonymous note, she goes to Jared for support. But what she finds is more than she was prepared for, driving the two further apart than ever. When an old friend is murdered and suspicious accidents escalate, endangering Jennie’s safety, Jared becomes her reluctant protector.

Jennie knows Jared is hiding something, but does he really want her gone from the ranch? And if so, could he be the one behind the ominous threats?

Determined to prove Jared isn’t involved, Jennie turns detective. Can she succeed in her courageous but reckless investigation…or is the truth a dangerous gift she won’t survive?

 ‘Writing has touched my life in every decade. At fifty, I took a risk and made writing my career, fulfilling a lifetime ambition.’
I enjoy writing blogs, book reviews and especially stories. Vivid imagery, atmospheric settings, strong females and sensual males are essential for my stories. Everyday life and ordinary people inspire me. How would someone react, if faced with something extraordinary? A thread of romance runs through my all my books, whether they be suspense, fantasy or historical.
I want to let my readers escape their lives for a while, experience new places, new people and most importantly, new emotional lows and highs My favorite parts of the writing process are; finding a person, event or place that makes me want to write a story about it and the writing itself; when your fingers cannot type fast enough, to transcribe your thoughts.
Family is very important to me. My two children are my greatest achievement to date.
I am an animal welfare supporter and regularly use social media to promote animal welfare issues.

5* Review: Too Hot to Handle (Bad Boys (Zero to 60) Book 10 – Susan Arden

Adult Read

28765640

 

Blurb 2016 -1

What began in a grueling game of cat-n-mouse with her step-uncle, has Margo on the move. In Never Say Never (prequel and included in Too Hot), she’s on the run and ends up doing a body slide right into the arms of a recently discharged Marine. Outside of a crazy fling, there’s zero room in her life for men. Handsome distractions are dangerous to her health.

From working a fence line and dealing with cattle, Rod is thrust back into the line of duty. And he promptly fails. He crosses the line in a no-brainer mission: go and get the girl. On no hands is he prepared for Margo or her smart-mouth, right hook, and cargo to hide.

Together Margo and Rod are as volatile as flint and gunpowder. Bordering on taboo, their raw attraction is a recipe for disaster. Especially when the stakes are raised.

Their stormy love affair forces them over the edge and out of their comfort zones as they wrangle in-laws, Mother Nature, and a slick conman. A regular trial by fire. But a battle worth fighting means taking a stand and they’ll do whatever it takes to stay together. Even if it means they have to lie, steal, cheat.
Or kill.

IT’S HOT.
IT’S DIRTY.
ZERO TO 60
SEX UP AGAINST A WALL AND SOME.

If you can’t stand the heat, better not come near this nuclear fusion Western, ’cause baby you will get burnt!

My Review 2016-1

28383748

This book gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘cute meet’-who knew airports could be this exciting?
I’ve wanted to read Rod’s story, the ex Marine with issues, since first meeting him in an earlier ‘Bad Boys’ book, and it doesn’t disappoint. This is a hard hitting, on the edge story. Margo and Rod’s exciting and unconventional relationship puts the reader through the emotional wringer. Emotion shadows every graphic and scorching touch, making it worth reading.
Margo carries too much guilt around with her for one so young and when you meet her step-uncle Axel you realise why. He is so easy to hate and the perfect antagonist for our anti-hero Rod who will save Margo at any cost, even if she doesn’t thank him for it.
Enriched by the setting at the rodeo and on the ranch, this fast paced love story is easy to read and hard to put down. If you like your cowboys sexy and troubled, your heroines feisty and opinionated and your love scenes detailed and raw, this is for you

5* Review: Breaking A Bad Boy – Susan Arden (#6 Bad Boys Series)

22322093

Bad Boys Series ~ Western erotic romance.
Breaking: Take one spunky tattoo artist, a hardcore badass cowboy, and watch the sparks ignite into a firestorm when one wants to get married and the other is holding out for screaming hot sex.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~X~~~O~~~X~~~O
One scorching kiss too many and Sommer sets her sights on breaking Rory McLemore. Her personal bad boy with his infuriating rule about no sex before marriage is about to go down. All the way down.

Rory gives Sommer a teasing taste from his spank bank, and suddenly there is no stopping them from exploring each other…wherever and whenever.

From holding out, Sommer is ready to give in. On the verge of saying ‘yes’ to his marriage proposal, Sommer is threatened with covering her dad’s gambling debts. When she gets an offer she can’t refuse out in L.A. and the means to make some serious cash, she heads for the coast rather than risk involving Rory in her rapidly imploding life.

As these two hardheaded lovers are forced to the edge, their love is put to the test.

Now it’s up to Rory to stake his claim in Tinsel Town and prove to Sommer, he’s the ultimate bad boy and she’s not going to end up as the girl that got away.

WARNING: Filled with badass McLemore cowboys, spunky bad girls, a few variations of hardcore rocker Romeos. Be advised~Breaking gives a new definition for hot-off-the-charts sex.

Breaking A Bad BoyMy Review

Breaking A Bad Boy’ is another fabulous story in the ‘Bad Boys’ series. Sommer is a bold, feisty heroine and Rory is such a sexy, principled cowboy. Light the touch-paper and stand well back as this dynamite couple battle their way towards happy ever after.

Rory and Sommer’s romance is the antithesis of Brandon and Mia’s love story, not a collar in sight but there is plenty of scorching heat in this erotic romantic tale.

Rory wants to marry Sommer and won’t give them both what they want until she agrees. Despite his edict about no sex before marriage this story about the youngest of the McLemore men and his ink artist girlfriend Sommer is erotic and brimming with sensual tension. Sommer persuades her honourable cowboy to love her every which way he can without compromising his values.

Ivy and Vince are notable secondary characters. Love to see more of their love story in another book.

In a story of rock stars, gangsters and a taste of Hollywood glitz there is danger lurking for Sommer and the town of Annona when organised crime rears its ugly head.

Can  the infamous McLemore family loyalty save Rory and Sommer’s romantic dream?

A sexy, page turning read and a wonderful addition to the Bad Boys series

5* Review Collared By The Cowboy Susan Arden

Collared By The Cowboy is the latest in Susan Arden’s Bad Boys series and deals with the darker side of relationships and addiction.  Here’s what it’s about. Please note the disclaimer below:

The following story is intended for an adult audience and contains mature themes, strong language including graphically detailed sex, violence, and drug use portrayed in a fictional setting.

The room at the end of the hall in Spurs & Leather, a private club in Paris hasn’t seen any action of late. Brandon as head Dom locked the doors after his last lover burned him good. Diving into his work at Evermore Ranch, he’s got his hands filled with taming wild horses until a red-leather wearing woman crosses his path. Tempted back into the saddle, he sets his sights on taming a different type of filly…one with a sassy little mouth, a mind of her own, and hot body that won’t quit. He’s got the goods, if she willing to let him take the lead both in and out of bed.

Last semester of grad school and all Mia needs is a stellar thesis that will skyrocket her chances of landing a therapist job somewhere far, far away from small towns and small minds. Case studies in female sexuality sure as hell aren’t the ticket out of Texas and Mia sets her sights on learning all she can about why women enjoy being dominated–thank you fifty shades of I’m out of here by May! Undercover, she enters the secretive BDSM world within a club known to offer decadent delights. With one minor SNAFU: she becomes the target of the head Dom, a man with a reputation of equal parts bark and bite. When the door marked no is thrown open by one commanding cowboy, Mia can’t resist temptation waiting on the other side.

Now, Mia is wearing Brandon’s collar, calling him Sir, and loving every minute of being dominated by her powerful lover. Yet Mia can’t have her cake and eat it too. Torn, she must decide if her future involves walking away from Brandon when her heart is telling her to stay, stay, stay.

My Review

 Collared by the CowboyThe latest story in Susan Arden’ s Bad Boys series is the darkest she has written. This book is an adult read and not for those who are easily shocked but that said it is a compelling story full of heat and emotion.

Brandon leads a double life. He breeds and trains horses on the Evermore Ranch but also part owns a sex club. His shadow life lets him be his true self the one he hides from his close-knit family but lately being one of the club’s Dom’s hasn’t gone to plan.

Mia wants to escape from being her father’s princess. She needs her grad school degree to do it. First she has to complete her thesis and carrying out research at a sex club is a necessary evil.

After a stormy first meeting full of heat and misunderstanding Brandon insists he is the only one to show Mia what happens in the club. He longs to tame her but will she cede to his dominance ? After visually sampling some of the club’s activities Mia is intrigued but can she objectively carry out her research given her magnetic attraction to Brandon. In the name of science Mia agrees to wear Brandon’s collar but there is fine line between observing and participation and her emotions make it hard not to cross the line.

The ethos of the club and the roles played within its inner sanctum are absorbing. Shocking and graphic but like a horror movie you have to read what happens next even if it’s through half closed eyes. The antagonist’s actions demonstrate the evils of drug abuse in a thoughtful believable way.

The McLemore’s enhance the story with cameo appearances and soften its gritty edges with their understanding and support of Brandon and Mia. Selma and Esme the twins are also important characters used cleverly to show Mia’s skill and Brandon’s softer side and illustrate the vulnerability of girls and women.

Collared by the Cowboy combines a deeply emotional love story, the light in a dark world full of abuse and desperation. A must read for all fans of erotica and erotic romance.
