Here, a five star review that made me want to read it, now!

5.0 out of 5 starsA great historical adventure

I love historical fiction so much but have read little to nothing that deals with late 19th century American history so was thrilled to pick up author Hunter S. Jones’ “Secrets from a Dangerous Time”. The story of Casey, who is struggling to survive in the South post-Civil War and ends up joining a traveling medicine show run by Dr. Garret Cleighton. The chemistry between the two is pretty immediate and intense but Casey has her share of secrets. I loved the historical elements to the story as well as the original tale woven throughout. Looking forward to part 2 in this great adventure.

Hi all:

I’ve known Hunter S Jones for quite  a while. She’s one of the authors who belongs to ASMSG and I met her very early on my journey into indie publishing. I read one of her novels at the time and was thoroughly impressed, by her imagination, her mastery of language and her beautifully rendered historical details. I have a few of her novels in my TBR list, that I keep looking longingly at but so far haven’t managed to get through.

But very recently I saw she’s published a novel that has been receiving a lot of attention, and I had to bring it here.

And her novel:

Phoenix Rising

The last hour of Anne Boleyn’s life…

Court intrigue, revenge and all the secrets of the last hour are revealed as one queen falls and another rises to take her place on destiny’s stage.

A young Anne Boleyn arrives at the court of King Henry VIII. She is to be presented at the Shrovetide pageant, le Château Vert. The young and ambitious Anne has no idea that a chance encounter before the pageant will lead to her capturing the heart of the king. What begins as a distraction becomes his obsession and leads to her destruction.

Love, hate, loyalty and betrayal come together in a single dramatic moment… the execution of a queen. The history of England will be changed for ever.

Reviews

“Compelling, captivating and moving.” 

-Claire Ridgway, The Anne Boleyn Files

~~~

“Historically accurate yet suspenseful – although we know the ending, this page-turner has many surprises.” 

-Dr. Beth Lynne, Editor

~~~

“An interesting look at the events of May 19, 1536 from an unexpected angle!”

-Cyndi Williamson, blogger, QueenAnneBoleyn.com

~~~

Anne Boleyn is unarguably one of history’s most fascinating and controversial women. Temptress, opportunist, witch, adulteress, or martyr? Generations after her death, we’re still intrigued by her rise and fall. In Phoenix Rising, Hunter Jones transforms the legend into flesh and blood. You don’t want to miss this clever and marvelously entertaining account of Anne Boleyn’s last hour.”

-OCMD, Amazon Vine Reviewer

~~~

“Thought provoking, esoteric and heart wrenching.” – 

-R.J.Askew, blogger, reviewer, author and journalist.

And I copy one of the reviews in full:

5.0 out of 5 stars Phoenix Rising! May 19, 2015

“Surely our love is beyond misunderstandings and whispered innuendo.”

Phoenix Rising by Hunter S. Jones is historical fiction but in the most enjoyable, unique way. I love how the author has fun with her stories and gives her characters such unexpected quirks. She has a way of making what could be a rather dry story into something fresh, contemporary and spellbinding.

This tale contemplates the last hour of Anne Boleyn and the rise of Lady Jane Seymour as predicted by an astrologer to the King of England, Henry VIII.

Phoenix Rising shares more than one viewpoint which makes it even more compelling. I relished in discovering the different opinions, outlooks and of course the gossip. Drama-filled and fast-paced this is an easy escape to an earlier time and an extraordinary place.

Quote ~

A tear tumbles down his left cheek. I look into his eyes and see pain. He must be shocked from the resent events. How can he have his wife executed? The mother of his daughter, Elizabeth? But, mine is to do as I am told. I am not to judge a man with ancient and noble blood. A king deemed as divine by his birth and chosen by the hand of God to lead our nation.”

Hi all:

As you know I like to bring you guest authors and their new books on Fridays. Today I have an author, Hunter S. Jones, who has many diverse interests (she loves music, has a keen interest in historical settings, steam-punk, erotica) and whose romantic stories are nothing if not thrilling and fascinating. I bring you her new novel in her ‘September Stories’ series, ‘September Again’ and just in case you’ve missed it, I remind you of the first in the series ‘September Ends’. I hope you get to know her work and love it as much as I do.

 

September Again by Hunter S. Jones

According to Cherokee beliefs, opportunity will bless you twice.

September Again, second in the series, September Stories, is the follow up to the hugely popular indie sensation, September Ends. September Again finds Liz Snow Savage leaving England. She follows her daughter Zelda Savage back to America after Zelda’s betrayal of her. More drama ensues as Liz looks for meaning in life while Zelda finds her direction after the tragedy of losing Jack O. Savage, The Poet. Set mainly in Chattanooga, Tennessee, September Again chronicles the rhythm of life’s cycles. The ebb and flow of love unravel the mystery of Liz’s past. September Again allows a further glimpse into the intricate web of passion and desire which have entangled Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage for years. Will a chance encounter finally reveal the truth? What act will change the destiny of Liz and Zelda forever? The story of sin, salvation and redemption continues in Book 2 of the September Stories, told through a mosaic of prose with a smattering poetry.

Magic happens when you least expect it.

And you shouldn’t miss the first novel in the series:

September Ends by Hunter S. Jones

September Ends by Hunter S. Jones

September Ends

Hunter S. Jones (Author), An Anonymous English Poet (Author), Hercules Editing and Consulting (Editor)

Sometimes when you believe it’s the end, it’s only the beginning.
A secret betrayal with no time for revenge. The mystery unravels to reveal the magic of love.
September Ends is contemporary fiction with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound together by poetry. It reveals the intricate web of passion and desire which entangles Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. The story is told through Liz Snow’s diary, Jack O. Savage’s poetry, and from letters sent across the Atlantic. Traveling throughout the lushness of a summertime in Tennessee and Georgia, September Ends journeys into the elegance of London’s West End and is finally settled in the countryside of Cornwall, England, a decade later.

September Ends is a story of sin, redemption, and salvation through love, because love happens when we least expect it.
