Overview

After being cheated on yet again, full-figured Alice O’Brien decides that she will leave behind her dreams of Prince Charming. From now on she will be a “love ‘em and leave’ em” kind of girl. However, when she—literally—tumbles down a rabbit hole, she discovers that she has left the familiar chaos of San Francisco behind and stepped into something vastly different. And it is here that she meets the fierce, powerful shapeshifter named Jarronn, who is one of the four irresistible brothers who rule this strange and fascinating land. Jarronn quickly seizes Alice for himself and threatens to introduce her to untold pleasure and to steal her furiously pounding heart. However, Alice soon learns that Jarronn deliberately lured her into his kingdom in order to make her his mate in hopes of averting a dark danger that threatens his people. But can their bond of passion save them?

    for those reading the reviews this not the wrong summary. Cheyen

    for those reading the reviews this not the wrong summary. Cheyenne McCray and Jaymie Holland are the same author just under different pen names. and taken by passion is a reprint of the book Wonderland: King of Hearts.This book is part of series and continues from her book claimed by passion but is from Alexi's twin, Alice, view. I hope this clears up some confusion.

    Not good

    I picked this up in store because the cover was cool, I read the prologue and was intrigued. I get home and start reading it and begin to think "what?! seriously?! someone wrote this and got it published?!" This is like a lot of those e-books out there that are good for nothing more than a cheap thrill and this one didn't even give much of one. The main female character lost all semblance of self and her own personality and became nothing more than a puppet. There are good books out there with much the same premise as this but what makes them GOOD is that the even after the female character is taken from her world she still retains a REAL personality. I will be returning this asap, and can't believe that I was deluded into purchasing it.

    more from this reviewer

    This is a wonderful reprint of the first erotic Wonderland E-book

    In San Francisco, Alice O'Brien lost her secretarial job for failing to understand sucking her boss' penis is major duty number one. She goes home to find her fiancé Jon having sex with Min the landlady and Stone the bearded one in Alice's bed. Adding to her shock is Jon is chained as a slave to Min the Mistress and Stone the Master. Alice's twin sister Alexi rushes in from her apartment upstairs as Jon blames Alice for her being too fat.

    While Alexi terrorizes the BDSM threesome, a stunned Alice wanders the city in disbelief. She vows to become a one night stand bad girl, but in Golden Gate Park falls through a hole in the ground. There she meets King Jarronn the shapeshifter who wants her to be his submissive queen. Alice's deepest fantasies have just begun in in Wonderland until she learns why her royal dom needed her as his mate.

    This is a wonderful reprint of the first erotic Wonderland E-book (by Cheyenne McCray). The story line is character driven by the heroine who finds her BDSM adventure with Jarronn perfect until she learns his motive for luring her to his realm. Readers will appreciate this enticing erotic fairy tale of S&M sex under the city.
