The Love’s Series
By Maryann Jordan
Annie Donavan’s life as a veterinarian is safe. And boring. Between focusing on keeping her small, inner-city clinic running, paying off student loans, and living in the tiny apartment above the clinic she has no time for fun or dating and certainly not for anything adventurous.
Then one night, danger and surprise show up in the alley behind her clinic. And Annie is in for the ride of her life.
Stoney is a mystery. A man of few words but smoldering looks. She decides to take a risk and after a night of passion finds herself thrown into a world that she never knew existed. A world of drugs, danger and intrigue.
Shane is a detective, who vows to keep Annie safe at all costs. Losing his heart to her is the easy part. Keeping her safe and earning her trust will prove to be his most difficult task.
**DUE TO SCENES OF AN EXPLICIT SEXUAL NATURE AND LANGUAGE SOME MAY CONSIDER CRUDE, 18+ ONLY**
Annie raised her hand up to rub her temple, feeling as though she were on a mental overload. Sighing deeply, she said, “I swear I can handle a vet emergency with calm assurance that I know exactly what I’m doing. I can handle irate clients and don’t mind getting down and dirty with my hands in an animal that I’m trying to save. But this… Shane, I don’t even know what to think.”
“Baby, what do you feel? Stop thinking and just feel.”
“I don’t know how. I’m trained to think analytically. I take a problem and break it down. Then find the best solution. I’m not equipped for this. If I break this down, my head says that this,” pointing between the two of them, “is a fucking mess and I should run for cover!”
“But what do you feel?”
“Feel? Shane, feelings are what got me in this mess to begin with. I give in to feelings and that gives you the power to stomp all over my heart. One. More. Time. I can’t protect myself from hurt if I give in to feelings.” Her eyes glimmered with unshed tears while hope and fear warred within her.
Love’s Taming by Maryann Jordan is filled with everything I love about a love story, the things that thrill me about a thriller and all of the things I’ve learned to love about reading a book.
The simplest meeting can bring the greatest thrill, the greatest fear, and ultimately the greatest love between two people. Love can tame the wildest beast as local veterinarian, Annie Donovan, learned by playing it safe most of her life. When Stoney walks in to her clinic, he turns her world upside down.
Stoney has spent too many years wallowing in the underbelly of the city’s drug trafficking scene. There wasn’t a thing he wasn’t willing to do, or hadn’t seen in those years. When Annie looked at him and helped him anyway, he felt sunshine on his face that made him want to walk in it’s light for the rest of his life.
With strong, well developed characters and well thought out plot, I can’t help falling in love with The Love’s Series first book and give it my highest recommendation!

I am an avid reader of romance novels, often joking that I cut my teeth on the old bodice rippers. I have been reading and reviewing for years. In 2013, I started the book blog, Lost in Romance Books and promoted indie authors, as well as beta read, basic editing and proofing books. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head, screaming for their story to be told. From these musings, my first novel, Emma’s Home, The Fairfield Series Book 1 was born.
I am a high school counselor having worked in education for thirty years. I live in Virginia, having also lived in four states and two foreign countries. I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for thirty two years and am the mother to two adult daughters. When writing, my dog or one of my four cats can generally be found in the same room if not on my lap.
Please take time to leave a review of this book (on Goodreads, Amazon). Reviews are the lifeline for indie authors.
Feel free to contact me, especially if you enjoyed my book. I love to hear from readers!
