About Ronald D. Walker

Child of the Baby Boomers. Wanna be Hippie, just could not afford the counterculture of drugs, psychedelic music, psychedelic art and social permissiveness. I especially could not afford the flower covered van. The culture was alluring and rebellion of any form was espoused by hot blooded Americans and many of us followed in our own fashion, leading to social invitations to see the world given by some law enforcement type person. I became a Veteran of the beginning of the Viet Nam era.
I was a brilliant teenager which was both unknown and unappreciated by my superiors for three years two months and six days. I left the military with mixed emotions; joy and happiness.
My stomach was removed in 1980 and my life style changed. I became an over the road truck owner operator for more than thirty years. I have seen our country from a different view than most ever will and parts of our world few will ever see.
Writing since 1990, when I could. Love the way a good story flows. Hate the transitions in the middles when the flow stops. Labor with the how to and again write and edit and edit, to a point of satisfaction that I have tried. And I will try again with another book. A good idea makes a good story line and an enjoyable book.
It is my hope that my books are entertaining and enjoyable.

This book had me hooked in the first paragraph... I love mysteries and crime with a heap of romance added...
I was in tears reading the last few parts and now I can hardly wait to read part two. Well written, Ronald Walker.
Thank you..!

Review by: APRIL MILES on April 20, 2018 :
I totally underestimated this book. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. I read it all in one sitting, which for me I usually read a little then continue later, but this one kept me intrigued. The story line never got boring and held my interest. I was sad about the way it ended, but it was a great story. I read a lot of books and usually it is easy for me to get involved with the next one I read, but this book just stayed in my head, so now until I read parts 2 and 3, I cant start another book because I wont be able to concentrate on anything else. Definitely a 5 star for me, and I am a stickler about giving a book 5 stars!!

Review by: Penny Mooney on March 28, 2018 :
The name of this book is very telling about the story line. I will warn that it has a trigger for abuse and also has erotic content. The story takes place in the 40's. This is an era where women were still subject to their husband's every wish. Divorce was unheard of and a lot of women suffered in silence.
The first chapter grabbed and drew me into the story. The characters are complex and the plot is exceptional. The story line flows from the beginning to the end.
Sarah was an abused wife and after her husband dies she enters into an illicit affair. I won't go any farther into the plot because I don't want to spoil it.
The author shows an understanding of the abuse women took back in the 30's and 40's before they won their rights. He shows a great writing ability to bring the reader the story of one woman's abuse. I give this book a 5 star rating. This is my first book by Ronald Walker but won't be my last.

This book is not a genre that I normally read, but for the era that it depicts it is good. As a victim of abuse, I can relate to Sarah. I'm looking forward to Part Two.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I wasn't sure if this story would keep me interested as it's set in the 1940's but I was surprised I really enjoyed it. It's my first by Ronald and will certainly read more of his works. The storyline is well written, I like Sarah who is really strong and when she meets Jon she finally learns to enjoy the sexual act. He teaches her how sensual and erotic it can be, the pages sizzled, I was captivated to the last page. I look forward to part two.

Review by: Diana Perry on April 5, 2017 :
Please note this book has triggers for abuse. First book I have had the pleasure of reading of Mr. Walker. From page 1 I was hooked! Could not put the book down! The explicit & naughty sex scenes in this book are off the charts! Book is set in an era where women enjoying themselves in the bedroom during sex is blase. Each character is well written with the total ability to make you feel what they felt. Highly recommend this book & I am looking forward to reading part 2.

Review by: Zoe Bancroft on March 28, 2017 :
This is the first book I've ever read by Ronald and wow what a book it was! I loved it from start to finish and never put it down.
I've not read much historical fiction for a while and this was a breath of fresh air from what I'm use to, it tells you how it was and what women really had to put up with from their husbands, they were expected to churn out babies whilst tied to the kitchen sink and if they couldn't do that then they would suffer the consequences because they weren't much use for anything else as far as many were conserved, even if they could sometimes they would still suffer from their husbands hands. It was a man's world and his word was final, both children and women were ruled by fists of steel. Abuse either physical or mental was accepted and nothing was done because up until the early 90's it was classed as domestic violence that the police wouldn't get involved in sadly. This book tells how it is for people living in the 40's.
The main character Sarah is really strong and it shows how she grows with the help of one man that treats her as an equal, Jon is a great character that you can't help but like, he takes Sarah under his wing and teaches her how women should be treated. She'd thought that women didn't have a say in life but he treats her in a way she's never been treated.
I cried a few times throughout the book both for Sarah and the other ladies in it, then just because of the storyline itself, it is hard not to be moved by it.
The storyline is so real you feel as if you know them and could be living alongside them, the description of everything is so precise you can imagine it all and this adds to the reading of the book, page after page I was drawn in and had to read it through to the end wanting to know what happened. I cried with Sarah and for her at times.
Ronald has a brilliant imagination which shines throughout this book and he goes into so much detail with everything making the characters stand out all the more.
It is a brilliant book which is erotic but not overly as some can be, I wouldn't say there was to much or that there was no need, it was in to show you how the characters grew and how it empowered them through it all. It was also quite violent at times but again if it wasn't in the book wouldn't be as believable, the story is about abused women who grow over time so without it the book wouldn't make much sense. I have been abused in a previous marriage and what he wrote was very true and well written and this is how I know that the police turned a blind eye up until the 90's maybe even later and sadly a lot would say they deserved it or had brought it on themselves!
I thought that the characters were brilliant all the way through and even though Sarah and Jon are the main ones there are quite a few that have a big part in it which helps you to draw a mental picture of what people look and sound like, he even writes in such a way as books would have been written years ago and how they would speak, you felt as if you were in that era in every way.
It was like stepping back in time and he captured it brilliantly. This may put some off but to me it made it all the more appealing and realistic. There was nothing about this book that I didn't like and at the end I read part 2 straight away making for very late night or rather early morning, and I can't wait to read Jon's story next to find out about him a bit more.
If definitely recommend this book, it's one that I will read again at least once and probably after I read Jon's story.

What can I say about this book but HOT HOT HOT!!! What a beautiful man Jon was and Susan his perfect lover. This story is about a very abusive husband and the man who saved her from him.
I really did enjoy this book.
