Overview

US Marshall Jinx Collins is an outspoken, free-spirited, and fearless woman. It’s that same fearlessness, however, that tends to get her into trouble. Jinx questions her life prior to being adopted. When those questions lead her to a murderer who’s about to be transported into the witness protection program, Jinx decides to kidnap him to see if she can uncover the truth. Jed Kane has worked undercover in the human trafficking ring for years. When Jed accepts a job to disguise himself as one of his worst enemies and take a ride from the correctional facility to a secured location, he certainly had not planned on being abducted by Jinx Collins. Jed’s uncertain as to how he feels about her touchy-feely hands and loose lips—unsure if they irritate him or if they are awakening his badly behaving desires. Jed knows he must first find out what the fanatical little lady wants with a murderer before he can act on whatever he’s feeling.

Straight away Jinx is attracted to the resilient and enticing Jed Kane—the only man who hasn’t backed down from her candor. While Jinx discovers that the questionable criminal may be able to assist her in finding out the truth about her past, Jed vows to save Jinx from her daring self. Once Jinx starts to understand what Jed feels for her—he wants to own her—she demands that he succumb to the raging frenzy. Jed allows himself to seduce her body, submitting himself to that dominant need. But haunted by a world of unlawful ownership, Jed forbids his cold heart to stake its dangerous claim on Jinx Collins.

Locked away in a dark basement, a little boy is waiting to be rescued—and Jinx’s past holds the key to his prison. If Jinx can finally find the truth which holds her fears, and if Jed can forgive himself for his past, then not only might they be able to save the boy, but they might also discover that their carnal desires really derive from their own prison... an inescapable prison of love.

To My Readers: The Forbidden Claim is a story about a man who for years has worked undercover in a world of malevolence. He's so deep into his cover that when Jinx Collins clashes into his life, he fears he will become the very evil he's been fighting against. Jed wants to own Jinx, and in his heart he knows that is forbidden. He surrenders to his badly behaving desires and allows himself to claim ownership of Jinx's body. But Jinx wants him to take ownership of her heart. By the time I finished this story, Jed Kane had broken my heart more times then I'd like to admit, but in the end I still fell in love him . . . I hope you do too!

Writing, what other way is there to describe it- it's my conviction, I've been faithfully writing for three years but started about eight years ago. My other full-time job, when I'm not writing, I'm a nurse who represents a group of nursing facilities in the WNY area. I live in North Tonawanda, New York- a small suburb between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. I have recently remarried after being single for the past ten years. Yes, I can finally say I found the right one! And I have a beautiful son, teenager, who continues to color my world with pride and laughter.

    I don’t mind a good Romantic Suspense, so I put my hand up

    I don’t mind a good Romantic Suspense, so I put my hand up to review this title, little did I know I was going to find a seriously sexy title landing in my inbox!

    US Marshall Jinx Collins is an outspoken, free-spirited, and fearless woman. It’s that same fearlessness, however, that tends to get her into trouble. Jinx has lots of questions about her life including the man who could be her the key to her past.

    Jed Kane has worked undercover in the human trafficking ring for years. When Jed accepts a job to disguise himself as one of his worst enemies and take a ride from the correctional facility to a secured location, he certainly had not planned on being abducted by Jinx Collins.

    There was nothing about the relationship that did not immediately explode into life. From the first encounter of Jinx and Jed we were left in no doubt that this couple would be ending up together by the end of the book. The interludes are regular and very very hot. So make sure you wear oven mits when reading the intimate scenes!

    There was a range of themes contained throughout the story, including assumed identities, abducted children, reunited sibling, well you get the idea, anyway. I did think the suspense came very secondary to the character/couple development throughout the book, which is a shame, because I do think it would have strengthened the tale a little and by the end I was a little let down that it really felt almost unfinished. I ended up asking myself if there will be a follow on book?

    Verdict: At the end of the day, it is an erotic tale that should leave you warmed on the inside. I would suggest it for those looking for a weekend or holiday read with the added benefit of a little naughty pleasure.
