The Dangerous Gift FRONT COVER

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

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?


Author Bio 2016 -1

‘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.

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.

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.

Collared by the Cowboy by Susan Arden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 first chapter.  🙂

“Hello.” Jennie pressed the accept button on her phone without checking the caller ID.


The  familiar voice caused butterflies in her stomach.“Yes. Jared? What’s wrong?”She dropped gratefully into a comfy sofa, one of several which lined the faculty building walls.

Jared Stewart perched his body on the edge of his desk. He’d put this conversation off for hours. “It’s Annie and Ralf…”

Jennie’s face chilled as shock forced the blood from peripheral vessels to her vital organs.“Are they okay?” She gripped the cushioned arm of the sofa as her sight blurred.’

I’ll post another snippet next week.
