MediaKit_BookCover_WonderlandTakenByPassionAfter being cheated on yet again, full-figured Alice O’Brien no longer believes she’ll find her Prince Charming. She resolves to enjoy men, but refuses to involve her heart.

When she literally tumbles down a rabbit hole, she finds she has left her familiar home city of San Francisco. She has landed in a strange and beautiful world, where she meets a powerful and dominant shapeshifter, Jarronn, and his equally fierce and irresistible brothers.

By the draw of a card foretelling his kingdom’s future, Jarronn has deliberately lured Alice to his realm in hopes of averting a terrible danger threatening his people. He has every intention of saving his kingdom with his and Alice’s bond of passion, and nothing will stop him from making her his Queen of Hearts.

Enjoy an exclusive excerpt:

“How do you feel now?” Jarronn asked softly.

“Honestly,” Alice’s expression was one of seriousness yet happiness and confusion all at once, “at this moment I wouldn’t change who I am for anything in your world or mine.”

A surge of triumph rose up within Jarronn. He stopped beneath a large cluster of orchids and pressed Alice up against the glossy trunk of a ch’tok tree. She gasped as she looked up into his eyes and she surely read the hunger and need in his gaze.

He grasped her waist and settled his hands at her hips. “Hold on to me.”

She slipped her arms around his neck, her lips parted, expectant and waiting.

Jarronn’s mouth met Alice’s in a possessive yet gentle kiss. Without words he told her what his heart was already saying. No matter that he had known her a short time, his soul had known her forever. He loved her so deeply. That in itself was pain mixed with pleasure. A fierce ache in his heart that could only be fulfilled by Alice.

He wouldn’t tell her of his love until after her training, when he was ready to make her his queen.

A purr rose up within his chest as he thrust his tongue into Alice’s mouth. She clung to him as their mouths devoured each other, feeding their needs in ways that only two soul mates could fulfill.
