Recommends it for: Fans of contemporary erotic romance with a touch of suspense
I'm a big fan of N.J. Walters Jamesville and Awakening Desires series--and although Jackson's Jewel is #5 in Awakening... and is related to Erin's Fancy and Capturing Carly , it can be read as a stand alone. In typical NJW style, it has an interesting plot (beautiful young accessories designer named Emerald is on the run from a stalker--needs a place to hide out while her hired PI investigates), a touch of suspense (just who is after our heroine...and how does he stay one step ahead of her and w ...more

Like it I do

NJ Walters. Jackson's Jewel is a good read. A strong alpha male protecting his lover (what's not to like). I have to say that I am biased I have yet to read anything by NJ that I don't like. This is my guilty pleasure. Thank you !!!

Loved it. N.J. Walters knows how to write sexy books.
Jackson was amazing and sexy and Emerald was capable and loving.
I liked the addition of a bit of mystery. It added to the story without losing the romance focus.
