    Cuffed by Candlelight

    The only connecting theme between these three novels is the involvement in law enforcement. Otherwise the stories could not be more diverse. Beverly Jenkins' 'Prisoner' a historical, romantic adventure is set in Kansas in 1884. The heroine, Elizabeth Franklin, found herself abandoned by her husband, William. Six-months after his departure, she finds herself agreeing to marry prisoner Jordan Yancey. The marriage would allow him to be released from prison, while providing her with assistance on her sixty-acre farm. What she does not realize is Jordan will awaken desires in her she did not know existed and their marriage will become more than an arrangement. Ms. Jenkins pens a believable romantic tale with a few unexpected twists. 'Prisoner' will let you know passion is not just a 21st Century phenomenon. I enjoyed the chemistry between Elizabeth and Jordan. It was a very STEAMY and HEATED tale, yet still very romantic. In Katherine Jones' 'Gunns and Roses' boasts more of a contemporary flavor. Stephanie Gunns is a corrections officer who finds herself attracted to Bryant Wilson. Bryant has his own fantasies about Stephanie. The problem is Bryant's brother, Mac, is an inmate at the facility where Stephanie works. She forces herself to stay away from Bryant because she assumes he and Mac must be the same type. However, fate intervenes, Mac ends up dead. Bryant is determined to find out the truth, with Stephanie's help. What follows is a fast-paced, erotically-charged connection between the two. I found the second story between Stephanie and Bryant to be a quite unrealistic, it was way too short a novel with all that took place, for it to be believable. But, hey, that's what romance novels are for fantasy, right?!!! 'Handcuffs Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry' by Gwyneth Bolton is a hip-hop influenced wild ride of a story. Police Officer Tamara Downing is working undercover to bring down Murder Row music's Tommy Coles. Coles' music business is a front for drug activity and prostitution. Just when she is about to close the case, DEA Officer Lance King intervenes. Lance and Tamara's lives have been linked since childhood and he feels a need to protect her. Tamara is not interested because what she wants from Lance has nothing to do with protection. What she is going to find out is Lance has his own plans where she is concerned. Interesting plot, but quite risque and way too much hip-hop influence. But still a readable tale.
