(long blurb)  Out of work and on the verge of being homeless, Sylvie Jenkins is desperate. Her desperation leads her to take a job with a reclusive writer living in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. She's never heard of Connor Hudson, but the man is offering her room, board, and an extremely generous salary. How bad could he be? Sylvie is shocked to learn that she might not know who Connor Hudson is, but millions of readers do, scarfing up the books he writes under various pseudonyms. And Connor's not just a bestselling author. He's a billionaire entrepreneur whose publishing and media empires span the globe.
Her new employer is a drop-dead gorgeous hunk, but he's also surly, dominating, and demanding. He's accustomed to being obeyed and kowtowed to, but he soon discovers that his feisty new assistant refuses to do either. Sylvie thinks he's an arrogant, condescending jackass! Connor is shocked that this little imp isn't cowed by his wealth, power, and position. That fascinates him. The Dom in him is determined to have her...and her obedience and submission as well. Naive and nerdy, Sylvie mistakes sex for love. But Connor can't love her. He's keeping secrets: dark and dangerous secrets. He says he's incapable of love. But as the body count begins to rise, you can't help but he capable of murder?

This book caught my attention from the very beginning with the callousness of Sylvie's cousin. Boy did that irk me the way she treated her. Then when Sylvie first met Connor, it really came to life. I still smile or laugh out loud when I think about her first reaction to him. Sylvie had spunk at times but I still think she should have taken more umbrage at the way he treated her. I think Connor took advantage of her naïveté introducing her to his Dom side so soon. She was an innocent girl who knew nothing except what she read about the BDSM activities. Although I felt he was too cruel to her at times, he had his soft endearing moments with her. The ending of course is a cliffhanger but I never thought it would be what it was. I can't wait to start the next book. This was a new author for me but I have to say she has talent and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see what was going to happen. The sex scenes were steamy and Connor was swoon worthy. I'd recommend this book to romance readers who like suspense, comedy and steamy sex.

I loved this book so much, I couldn't put it down. When I was finished I had to download the 2nd book immediately then I was off on another all night reading marathon. Now waiting on the 3rd book and I know it will be just as good.

This book was awesome right from the beginning. It was very easy to engage in the reading. I immediately liked Sylvie. I wasn't real sure how I felt about Connor at first, but once his softer side came out about the time of Sylvie's father's wedding, he had really grown on me by then. I have no clue who the murderer could be and I can't wait for the next book to come out to try to put it all together. I am anxiously awaiting book number 2.....Banished!

In His Keeping TAKEN book 1

I loved this book! I couldn't stop reading from page 1. I loved the mystery and relationship between Sylvie and Connor. I was so engrossed in this book that after reading Taken I immediately bought Banished!!! I can't wait for Claimed in February! I want to know what happens and how it ends. The writing was exceptional and it kept my interest the entire time. It's killing me to wait for the final book.

(short blurb) Sylvie Jenkins' life is upended when boss and lover, billionaire Connor Hudson, becomes the prime suspect in a string of grisly murders. Those who love him...die! He sends her away; exiling her to his Park Ave. penthouse. They meet in secret, but he's changed. He has a dark cruel side that frightens her. What she discovers in a hidden closet, leaves her wondering...could he be capable of murder?

(long blurb)  Exiled to a luxurious penthouse fortress on Park Ave. and trailed by security teams wherever she goes, Sylvie Jenkins feels like a virtual prisoner.
She made the mistake of falling in love with her boss, reclusive bestselling author and billionaire entrepreneur, Connor Hudson. He’s a strict, demanding Dom, who imposes rules and metes out punishment. He wants her total submission, but she’s not inclined to give it. They’d been living together in his rustic mountain mansion until the day police arrived and informed Connor he was the prime suspect in a series of grisly murders. People who loved him had a habit of turning up dead!
Without a word of explanation, Connor sends Sylvie away, refusing to take her calls or answer texts or emails. He tries to stay away from Sylvie, but he can’t. They continue to see each other in secret. Their meetings are filled with painful discipline, followed by the most exquisite pleasure.
Sylvie becomes jealous when Connor squires other women to society events. He tells her it’s to throw the "real" killer off the track. But Sylvie has her doubts.
Realizing she knows almost nothing about Connor’s background, she decides to search the apartment for clues to his past. She discovers the door to a secret room. What she finds there frightens her. Sylvie had always known Connor had a dark, almost sinister side, but she hadn’t thought him dangerous or cruel. Now she wondered. She kept telling herself Connor wasn’t a murderer. But the question remained, if he wasn’t…who was?

This was truly a wonderful trilogy. Sylvie and Connor are my newest favorite couple. Ms. Frances blew me away with her wit, humor and erotic sex scenes. This will definitely be a re-read for me. Connor definitely redeemed himself in this last book and I've not quite met a heroine like Sylvie before. Their love story was different than the usual poor girl meets billionaire plot line and romance readers will definitely love this series. Great job Ms. Frances. I wish you had a 4th book in this series. I'm sad that I've finished and its been a while since I read a book that kept be guessing until the very end. Loved it!
