Emerald Jewel is on the run from a
stalker. For months she has been getting phone calls and
flowers in the mail from an unknown admirer. Recently, the
calls and gifts have gotten more and more sinister until
Emerald feels she is in danger. Taking off on her own, she
begins driving and ends up in a small community. When her
stalker reaches her by cell phone Emerald knows that she has
to find somewhere to hide. She sees the perfect opportunity
when she spies a job posting advertising for a live-in
Jackson Connors wants no part of a
housekeeper. He likes his house the way it is. Running his
farm from dawn to dusk is hard work but he loves every
minute of it. Lately, however, he has seemed to miss having
someone to talk to at night and when he sees his new
employee, all of his good intentions go down the drain.
Emerald “Jones” is going to be his; it is only a matter of
when and where.
Emerald and Jackson are immediately
drawn to each other. Sparks fly, passions ignite, and
before they know what is happening, they are in the midst of
a scorching hot affair. There is just one problem.
Emerald’s stalker is getting closer and Emerald is not
willing to endanger the man she loves.
Jackson Conners is man enough to make
me want to do housework. From the top of his head to the
tips of his…feet…I loved every single inch of him. His
bluster and blunder about not wanting a housekeeper didn’t
fool me for one minute and I knew then and there that I
loved him. Emerald was a worthy mate. I’m not sure I
agreed with her wanting to catch the stalker the way she did
but I have to admit, it worked.
The fifth book of her hugely successful Awakening Desires
series, Jackson’s Jewel was the perfect story
for Jackson and Emerald. N. J. Walters gave us suspense,
passion, and ultimately love. She left out one thing
however – a portable fan! Don’t miss Jackson’s Jewel.
It is scrumptiously fantastic!
