About K. A. Jordan

K. A. Jordan is a refugee from the Rust Belt of Ohio, who escaped to the Blue Grass of Kentucky in 1992. She writes and blogs from 'Jordan's Croft' a small farm where she lives with her husband, a retired Army Staff Sergeant and three horses.
She holds a degree in Applied Science, rides American Quarter horses, gardens and can often be found on the back of her husband's Suzuki M109 motorcycle.
She says of her writing: "I write the stories that I want to read, stories written for the head as well as the heart, with complex characters, twisty plots and contemporary settings. There are no 'ripped bodices' in my fiction but you'll find strong women, charming criminals, wounded heroes, mad artists and an occasional haunted motorcycle."

This is an excellent book, well written and a unique idea in a genre already overflowing with ideas. The plot moved along at a good pace, leading to a very satisfying ending. I enjoyed spending time with the characters and look forward to more from this author. Go Indies!

K.A. Jordan's characters are believable, quirky, and feel truly alive. The heroine is likeable, scrappy, and independent, while the hero is rough-edged and utterly masculine.

K.A. Jordan manages to keep the prose descriptive and interesting while maintaining excellent story pace

Review by: Daniel A. Roberts on Sep. 18, 2011 :
As a guy who enjoys a good romance novel from time to time, I tend to be a bit more critical. When things happen that don't make sense, I tend to frown. Well guess what. I never frowned ONCE while reading Swallow the Moon. I expected to read this in a week or so, only to find myself unable to put it down.

The plot isn't too complicated, yet it's intricate in how it plays out. That's no easy feat to pull off. One of my pet peeves of women writers who write about men's reactions in a romantic novel is having the guy so far off base as to be unreal. Jorndan's take on this issue is a pleasant surprise. She gets it right. In doing that, the story took on a quality of realism that I do enjoy, and happily immersed myself into the world and the supernatural problems our lovebirds face.

Well done, Jordan. I can tell that you wrote this from both the heart and mind. Keep it up. ^_^

This is a great book if you are into the type of books that involve the ghosts and things like that I did not think I would love this book as much as I do. I would tell people to read other wise they are missing out so get yourself a copy they are great.

Ghosts, Wiccans, demonically possessed motorcycle, true love.....

I don’t read romance novels. I don’t read paranormal romance novels. When the author asked for readers to review her paranormal ghostly romance, I thought what the hell the worst is that I could positively hate it right? Well I was pleasantly surprised. While the romance genre is certainly not something I will actively read, it’s not half as bad as I thought it would be.

The story centres around June, a Wiccan accountant at a failing company looking for her soulmate, and Eric, a troubled Vet who saw action in Afghanistan. He returns home after his second tour of duty to find his marriage over and his life in tatters. The lab he works for closes just as he purchases a motorcycle. From Hell. The ghost of the first owner, a woman called Cora Cobra, hovers in and around the motorcycle. Eric is hooked the minute he sees it and buys it from a widow whose husband, an undercover Narc, died when losing control of the motorcycle in a bend in the road. Jake’s ghost haunts the motorcycle too but he is trapped, unlike Cora's ghost. She's evil. Eric and June meet one night when he is driven off the road by men in an SUV right outside of June’s home. She calls the police and an ambulance after they drive off, unable to find Eric and make sure he is dead. She keeps the motorcycle in her garage for Eric, who is taken off to hospital to patch him up. Over the next few days, he stays with her while looking for Van Man Go, the man who painted Cora’s portrait on the motorcycle, and recovering from his injuries. He wants to restore the bodywork. June senses the ghost of Cora around the motorcycle, she feels the evil in it. And then there’s that instant attraction going on between them. And what’s up with the ghostly visits in her bedroom? And the roses he keeps leaving?

Overall, a good read, for the paranormal genre. While it doesn’t inspire me to go out and buy more of this type of book, it was a pleasant change from my normal reading list. I will however make sure to find other books written by the author.
