In His Keeping TAKEN book 1
by Jmk1723
I loved this book! I couldn't stop reading from page 1. I loved the mystery and relationship between Sylvie and Connor. I was so engrossed in this book that after reading Taken I immediately bought Banished!!! I can't wait for Claimed in February! I want to know what happens and how it ends. The writing was exceptional and it kept my interest the entire time. It's killing me to wait for the final book.

I stared at this picture of Nachos Figueras, the male model for Ralph Lauren's Polo line everyday while I wrote the books. He's what I envisioned Connor Hudson looking like.

Saranac Lake area in the Adirondack Mts. of upstate New York. The setting for IN HIS KEEPING Book #1 TAKEN

I loved this book so much, I couldn't put it down. When I was finished I had to download the 2nd book immediately then I was off on another all night reading marathon. Now waiting on the 3rd book and I know it will be just as good.

Not far from Saranac Lake, NY. This is the area where the reclusive billionaire fictional character Connor Hudson lives.

This book was awesome right from the beginning. It was very easy to engage in the reading. I immediately liked Sylvie. I wasn't real sure how I felt about Connor at first, but once his softer side came out about the time of Sylvie's father's wedding, he had really grown on me by then. I have no clue who the murderer could be and I can't wait for the next book to come out to try to put it all together. I am anxiously awaiting book number 2.....Banished!

Available at:

Out of work and on the verge of being homeless, Sylvie Jenkins is desperate. Her desperation leads her to take a job with a reclusive writer living in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. She's never heard of Connor Hudson, but the man is offering her room, board, and an extremely generous salary. How bad could he be? Sylvie is shocked to learn that she might not know who Connor Hudson is, but millions of readers do, scarfing up the books he writes under various pseudonyms. And Connor's not just a bestselling author. He's a billionaire entrepreneur whose publishing and media empires span the globe.
Her new employer is a drop-dead gorgeous hunk, but he's also surly, dominating, and demanding. He's accustomed to being obeyed and kowtowed to, but he soon discovers that his feisty new assistant refuses to do either. Sylvie thinks he's an arrogant, condescending jackass! Connor is shocked that this little imp isn't cowed by his wealth, power, and position. That fascinates him. The Dom in him is determined to have her...and her obedience and submission as well. Naive and nerdy, Sylvie mistakes sex for love. But Connor can't love her. He's keeping secrets: dark and dangerous secrets. He says he's incapable of love. But as the body count begins to rise, you can't help but he capable of murder?

*IN HIS KEEPING Book #1 TAKEN is an erotic romance murder mystery thriller with a cliff-hanger ending. The story continues in Book #2 BANISHED and concludes in Book #3 CLAIMED.
