Spotlight & Giveaway - Wonderland: Taken by Passion by Jaymie Holland


Wonderland: Taken by Passion

by Jaymie Holland 



After being cheated on yet again, full-figured Alice O'Brien no longer believes she’ll find her Prince Charming. She resolves to enjoy men, but refuses to involve her heart.    

When she literally tumbles down a rabbit hole, she finds she has left her familiar home city of San Francisco. She has landed in a strange and beautiful world, where she meets a powerful and dominant shapeshifter, Jarronn, and his equally fierce and irresistible brothers.   

By the draw of a card foretelling his kingdom’s future, Jarronn has deliberately lured Alice to his realm in hopes of averting a terrible danger threatening his people. He has every intention of saving his kingdom with his and Alice’s bond of passion, and nothing will stop him from making her his Queen of Hearts. 



The odd sense of loneliness due to Jarronn’s absence caused confusion to fog Alice’s mind. What was happening to her? She remembered a TV show where an Alice, who had visited Wonderland before returning home, had been thrown into an institution. Everyone in the “real world” had been certain that Alice had gone crazy because she kept talking about the strange world she’d gone to, so off to the asylum she’d been sent. 

But the TV Alice and the storybook Alice didn’t exist. 

Alice O’Brien did. She was from San Francisco, where she’d grown up with a bastard of a father, and a mother who did belong in an institution. She’d also had special people in her life, which included her twin, Alexi, her cousin Annie, and her young aunt, Awai. 

The reality—or at least what felt like reality—of what was happening to Alice settled over her shoulders like a heavy yoke. Chasing a rabbit that had turned into a white tiger…falling through a dark tunnel in what felt like chocolate pudding…landing in a strange and bizarre world…and all that had transpired between her, Jarronn, and Kalina… 

“I’m not in San Francisco anymore, am I?” Alice turned to look at Kalina, who raised her amber eyes to meet Alice’s gaze. “I don’t think I’m even on Earth any longer.” 

“You are correct. You are in the land of Tarok.” Kalina smiled and took both of Alice’s hands in hers. “The High King will explain all in time.”
