  1. Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old Mild mannered fantasy SF pseudo literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart writing romance She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who ve just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick ass heroines She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies possibly dead guppies by the time you read this When she s not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.

  2. A story of love, betrayal and family, Kidapped by the Billionaire is a romantic suspense that shouldn t be missed.Elijah is a man set on revenge and Violet is the tool to get him what he wants He never expected innocence and the daughter of such corruption Violet had no clue the secrets her family held until Elijah blows her world apart Sexy and suspense filled with an emotionally scarred anti hero to boot, what else can you ask for I received this ARC copy of Kidnapped by the Billionaire from S [...]

  3. This is a bit of a crackilicious read the fantasy is heightened, there s a big ole dash of Stockholm Syndrome and I was saying this is so wrong, but so delicious, right alongside the characters.Elijah Hunt has been planning his revenge on Evelyn Fitzgerald, the man who orchestrated the kidnapping, torture and murder of his wife for seven long years He s done horrible, terrible things in pursuit of that goal, only to have his revenge snatched away from him by Eva King, the heroine of the last boo [...]

  4. Sometimes you need a dark romance, written by Jackie Ashenden to take away the winter blues This is one of those times I am very partial to the Nine Circles series We get a dark wounded hero in Elijah who kidnaps Violet Violet s father is responsible for the death of his beloved wife Elijah has a lot of hidden pain and rage This is all about revenge Luckily they like each other I m not convinced its Stockholm Syndrome It s sweet how Violet breaks down Elijah s barriers.Jackie Ashenden, thank you [...]

  5. Slick s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsJackie Ashenden s Nine Circles series has been a bit hit and miss with me the writing is strong, the stories are intricate and suspenseful, the characters fully developed and complex and there is always a romance in each book but in this book the romance came a bit too quickly for the situation We ve seen Elijah Hunt in the previous books and his sometimes his actions seemed out of place and in this book we get a good look at his motivation a [...]

  6. I was eager to read this because of Violet and Elijah who appears in the book 2.The plot moves around Elijah s revenge and what he would do make that happen We have a lot of information and the characters from the books make appearance and shake the things here Nothing goes accord with his plan because he prefer to work alone but people keep getting in his way Nothing really happens until the end and the possibilities there are left open Secrets are revelead,, finally Gabe with his anger and Eva [...]

  7. I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review This is book four in the Nine Circles series I have not read the other books so for me this was a standalone book Although I would like to have known if Elijah Hunt was in the other booksybe I would have understood him because I couldn t get any emotional attachment to him Elijah Elijah Hunt is out for revenge against men that have taken everything away from him including his wife who has now died In his miss [...]

  8. This is the 4th book in the series and needs to be read in order for it to make the most sense Full disclosure, I read only this book in the series which is probably why the story didn t mean as much for me Based on blurb, this comes across as a dark erotica with some possible hot smutty dub con sex Whilst there is a bit of dub con sex and it is very light emphasis on the dubious, most of this book is a frustrating soap opera drama Elijah somehow flies under the radar and is able to become a tru [...]

  9. Copy from author through netgalleyI have to be honest here, when I got sent this book I looked at the cover and title and thought I knew what I was getting I haven t read any of the other books in the Nine Circles series and that might have helped, but I didn t feel lost in this story I felt a lot of thingsxious, scared, hot, bothered and totally hookedbut nope, never lost I thought the story was great, it totally hooked me right from the beginning and I didn t want to read the last line As I sa [...]

  10. Man, que decepci n Este y el siguiente libro de la saga son un horror, que decepcionante, empezo siendo una saga genial, romance del bueno , ten a intriga y en los libros anteriores trato muy bien el tema de las violaciones pero este libro es un mamarracho, la protagonista se enamora de su secuestrador THE HORROR Al principio me la banque porque suelen gustarme esas ship no convencionales al menos en los programas de tv pero aca ya era TOO MUCH No me cabe en la cabeza como Jackie paso de escribi [...]

  11. If your first thought upon seeing the title of this book is Oh, no, not another Billionaire hero with dominant tendencies virginal heroine story you can rest assured that while the semantics are there yes, he s a billionaire, yes, he kidnaps the heroine, yes, she is a virgin , as part of the Nine Circles series by Jackie Ashenden it s actually a taut erotic suspenseful thriller and not just a run of the mill story As the fourth book in the series, there is an overall story arc that continues fro [...]

  12. Titles like these always make books seem quite shallow, but it can be very misleading I really enjoyed the story There was a good mix of romance, suspense and a little bit of action This is the first book that I ve read by this author Although it is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone For the most part I didn t have any trouble keeping up with all the characters, but there seems to be an over arching story so I m going to go and read the books in the correct order.

  14. I was unfortunately not able to start this series from the beginning The first book I read was that of Zac and Eva However, that book got me hooked to the characters I ve read many books from Jackie Ashenden before, but I think this series is her most mature, with much darker characters and amplified sex scenes Needless to say, I loved the series right away The ending of the previous book got me so excited for Elijah s story And so, I am beyond happy I get to review this book.In the previous bo [...]

  17. The only thing I have an issue with in this book is the title It is misleading because Elijah is no Billionaire Otherwise, this book hit me like a ton of bricks The writing is phenomenal and the character development is well thought and very methodical Everything happens very quickly yet it feels like days have gone by Violet Elijah s chemistry was hot enough to burn the pages For some weird reason I loved his character from the beginning He was driven by his hatred and anger, no matter what he [...]

  18. Oh gosh, I think I m a little bit in love with Elijah And Violet is so perfect, getting into the gooey goodness hidden beneath that hard heartless exterior I loved Zac and Eva s book but this one is too good The broken man, single mindedly set on revenge actually does something so unexpected it makes you pause Elijah sure knows the meaning of the word sacrifice As for Violet, I just wanted to hug her and hide her under my mother hen wings And poor Gabe, his life was a living nightmare for a whil [...]

  20. I knew I would love Elijah s story Man give me of him I loved Violet she was stonge and adorable at the same time I was not shocked at all about Jericho I saw that in the middle of the book so not shocked at all This book was so good simply devoured it I m not sure who s story is next, but I can not wait This is a must read series, every book has been amazing But Elijah stole my heart

  21. Elijah has to know he has a good woman when he starts questioning himself, that slight curl to her mouth was mesmerizing He d done so many hard, violent things to her and yet here she was, standing naked in front of him, tending his wounds and nearly smiling just after having let him eff her senseless He didn t understand it I enjoyed this book, Elijah was a complicated man but I loved digging underneath his exterior.

  22. Well, we knew that things were getting very very complicated and while Fitz has now been murdered, we know that there s still the quest for revenge by the elusive Elijah, and that s exactly what we get in this next installment We didn t know much about violet before this story just that she s best friends with Honor and a free spirit of sorts since she s trying to find where she fits in the world The twist that we learn though is that there s really a method to what she s been doing and that she [...]

  23. 2.5 My least favourite of the series so far because the plot gets too farfetched Though out of all the books so far the action and plot was fast paced which I enjoyed the most Not recommended as a standalone.First thing to note books 4 and 5 had Billionaire in it and when borrowing the book from my library I accidentally read the blurb of book 5 first THAT WAS A MAJOR SPOILER It took the surprise out of what should be a huge plot twist So half the suspense and fun was taken out of reading this b [...]

  24. Broody anti hero and waif like girl with hidden strength The cliches abound in this book, and Ms Ashenden handles them so well that I loved every minute So looking forward to reading the final book in this series, featuring Jericho Bought from kindle

  25. good story, it was long in coming to see that Elijah was a good man underneath all his issues and need for revenge.

  26. I have been reading this series since Ms Ashenden released the first book and now I have just finished reading the fourth book and OMG it had everything that I love I love books that have lots of suspense, some action and of course some HOT romance and this book had everything From the moment that I started reading this book I couldn t put it down I love that the other members of the Nine Circles came out and helped Elijah even though he didn t know that he was going to need them to find her Eli [...]
