Got Romance! Reviews
"This one is a ‘sigher’. If you are in need of something sweetly romantic, Sharon Horton is ready to deliver with Jinxed. The suspense part wasn’t what held my attention; it was all Kendra and Jinx with their back stories and gentle humor. I loved their histories and how it all led to them being together. Anyone looking for a sweet, romantic tale with a bit of suspense will find a wonderful classic in Jinxed."

The Long and the Short of It
"Very few books hold my attention the way this one did. Honestly, I read it in record time simply because it was too good to stop reading. I wanted to put it down, but I just couldn’t do it. Attention to detail, tight plotting and dynamic dialogue coming from realistic, interesting characters makes Sharon Horton’s Jinxed a winner."
Jill Whelan - actress (The Love Boat)

Romance Reviews Today
authors convey such emotional connections in the first few
chapters of a book, but Ms Horton has done a superb job with
Jinx and Kendra. From their first meeting, a very believable
relationship develops and builds in intensity throughout the
story. With emotionally charged scenes and characters that
leap from the pages with depth and personality, be sure not
to miss this exceptional story."

"Jinxed is a very romantic story, one that tugged at my
heartstrings and touched all the emotions a good love story
should. Sharon Horton had my attention through each page,
even right up to the last sentence. This story is classy,
the characters are believable and the settings are picture
perfect. Sharon Horton has a way of telling this tale; it
falls together beautifully. I highly recommend this book."
Reviewer: Kimberly Leslie
Horton has given us a story of helplessness, guilt,
understanding and love. As it takes all of those things and
more for these two to find the love they have for each other
and help them heal as well. It also takes the love of their
prior spouses and love they have for them to move forward
into the future they had always hoped they would have. This
is the first story by Ms. Horton that I have read and I will
be on the lookout for more stories by her."
"Sharon Horton has created a compelling story filled with
strong characters and a realistic plot. She has written a
heart touching novel that transports the reader into each
thrilling page. As I read along, I was delighted by each
triumph and saddened by each failure these lively characters
faced. Anyone who has ever tasted the bitter nectar of loss
or gloried in the smell of victory will remember this story
long after they have closed its cover. I would recommend
that everyone allow themselves the pleasure of owning and
reading many times this unique book. Thank you Sharon for
sharing yet another of your enchanting books with me. I
truly enjoyed the experience. I am certain we will all be
seeing much more of your extraordinary talents in the future
and I would certainly feel JINXED if I did not."
Reviewer: Terri Von Reiman
fast paced romance, interlaced with believable interaction
between Jinx and Kendra, as well as entertaining scenes with
Kendra’s students and a man named Pop. The pacing of the
story is consistent. I loved Jinx as much as Kendra did and
was happy they both got that second chance at love. The
suspense was fitting for the storyline as well, and
complimented the developing relationship between Kendra and
Jinx. I highly recommend this book!"

"The plot was strong, all the way through. Ms. Horton
did a fantastic job in creating her characters and her

interactions and how their relationship developed and
matured. Both have known real love, and together they
moved forward with admiration and respect for each
other and for their late loves; this aspect of the
book was especially well done. The supporting
characters stay in the background with Kendra and Jinx
remaining the book’s focus. Another big plus for the book
was the well written and scenery descriptions, the attention
to detail was excellent. Readers will be able to sense the
woods and the water; this facet of the book was written so
complete, but never bogged me down.
Jinxed is a terrific, sweet, and suspenseful romance,
especially for fans of "second chances at love" stories.
Jinx is great, and a keeper. I truly enjoyed this book."
"Kendra is easy to like and the more I learned about her
past, the more I respected her. Things haven’t been easy for
Jinx either, and I couldn’t help but feel sympathy for the
loss he faced. Bart is the most menacing kind of villain, a
well-liked and respected man who appears perfectly normal to
most people. I hoped Kendra and Jinx would find a way to
And most of all, I wished they would both find love again.
There are some scary situations but overall, JINXED is a
bittersweet yet heartwarming story of loss, hope and love."
"Sharon Horton is a master at relieving tension with
witty dialogue. Always searching for a deeper meaning,
Horton weaves a tale of suspense and love. If you’ve
been searching for such a book, Jinxed will deliver."
Reviewer: Nancy E. Gibson
"I loved Jinxed! The characters are real and honest.
The hero and heroine both are people who have been
damaged by the loss of a loved one and the guilt
associated with those losses. The way their "coming to
terms" is handled by the author, Sharon Horton, is
well written and very touching. The stalker part of
the story is also well crafted. The threat being
subtle enough not to steal away the entire story, but
ominous enough to overshadow other events and create
an air of unease for the heroine. Pretty much exactly
as you would expect such a situation to occur in real
life. This is how romantic suspense should be done!"
