    About J.A. Hornbuckle


    1. My heart was beating so freaking fast I could hear the murmurings of the crowd behind the curtain where I was hiding, that separated me from them.It was time Time for me to come out and talk with them, those people from that had read my books, rated my books and that wanted to know the person behind the words.I stepped my way carefully out onto the stage, my heartbeat the only sound my ears could hear Hi, I mumbled into the microphone My name is Judy and I write as J.A Hornbuckle Damn My voice sounded as hesitant as I felt Tha thank you so much for your interest I was fumbling But, I d done this before The public speaking thingie And I really hadn t ever been this nervous before But, geesh, I d had notes then Not now.Deep breath, my mind instructed.Okay, that I could do I, ah, I don t know what to uhm, I m uncertain what I m supposed to talk about, I began.The fact that I couldn t see into the crowd was a problem Talking to crowds is supposed to be like talking to other people But I couldn t actually SEE the other people.Crap.Just start at the beginning I started writing because of a migraine, I started, my voice reedy and thin even in the amplification of the microphone I d read three crap books in a row and thought I could do better I cleared my throat which I hadn t realized beforehand would be captured by the speakers Sorry, I mumbled and tried again I read three books that convinced me that I could write better I m an avid reader A voracious reader that consumed four to six fiction books a week Three books, three crap books, meant that I had wasted fifty percent of my reading time And I knew that I could do better, could write better The noise in the large room lessened as I spoke and I gained courage from that silence As I laid on the floor of my walk in closet because it, of all the rooms in my apartment, had no noise, no light, and with my frozen pack of corn on my head, thought of the book I might write I remembered that time of pain Of hurting so bad that my stomach would roil, where every heartbeat was torture and I couldn t breathe without the air hurting my teeth I started to think about Caitlin and Jake, about what was to become Pole Dance , and eventually I found that I could shove that pain to one side as I planned I learned to stash a steno pad and pen in there with me and use my baby finger to hold the end of the steno pad and write in the dark I heard a couple of chuckles which made me bolder I tried to capture the story on my computer in my dull roar times And, in a word It was crap I didn t know what I was doing So I started to study Read, absorbed But you know what I found Writing is like driving a car You can read about driving, learning the rules of the road, reading about safety tips and precautions But until you are actually behind the wheel Oh, baby Completely different story More laughs this time My knees were steadier and I felt my voice strengthen.I needed to finish up My name is Judy And I m a new author who is learning by the seat of her yoga pants as she goes Thank you so much for reading and reviewing my books You mean a lot to me I smiled and waved into the glare that was hiding the group that had come to hear me speak.Because I ve never spoken so much and with such honesty from my heart at one time.

    1. Bk 2 of the Dance Series. Not as strong as JAH’s first 2 bks and it seems she’s lost a bit of that KA charm that influenced her first 2 bks which endeared them to me. Although I liked main characters Marianne and Ram well enough the first 75% of the bk just wasn’t all that exciting and I just couldn’t warm up to their story. After the 75% mark the drama picks up and it got a bit more interesting. It’s somewhat confusing since there are 2 separate series with all the same characters and [...]

    2. I enjoyed this book far more than it's predecessor. The relationship between Ram and Marianne is very pure and I loved reading about them. I was a bit confused about everything surrounding Marianne (crime, men, etc.) Overall this novel was definitely entertaining and worth the read.

    3. 4.5* I really liked the characters in these books very much. Relateable and real. I wish that they would just leave out the 'suspense" element of the books, I don't think they add anything, if anything, they take away. Like the way these and the HH books overlap. Looking forward to more.

    4. I really enjoyed the characters, and the story was well done. I liked that it wasn't over the top or put the heroine in a position of suddenly besting experienced police officers when she's had zero training, but still kept her strong and likable. I wish the characters had been a bit more fleshed out and I felt the ending was pretty abrupt. I'll definitely buy the next book and I'm preparing to try the first in this authors MC series.

    5. I wasn't feeling this the way I did book one, not sure whyill a decent read even though the emotional connection wasn't there for me.

    6. I really like this author, and I think she writes books that are fun to read. I enjoyed this book, except for two things. One was an issue with the hero, I felt that he completely did not step up like a man during a critical scene, and it really made me like him less To be more specific (view spoiler)[ when his crazy father held that dinner scene and everyone was so rude, the hero was so passive and didn't stand up enough for her. HE does feel bad later and tries to make it right, but this is a [...]

    7. NOT QUITE AS COMPELLING AS HER OTHER BOOKSThis is the second book in the Dance series. This is Ram and Marianne's story. Ram is the police chief and Marianne is an accountant. The story kicks straight off with the mystery part of the story, but as the book progressed, I thought that it became fairly predictable.The tension between Ram and Marianne was not quite as strong as the authors previous couples. Characters from her other series Human Hieroglyphics feature in this, but readers might find [...]

    8. THIS IS THE 2ND IN THE "DANCE SERIES", SHOWCASES CHARACTERS (ram & Marianne)FROM THE FIRST BK# "POLE DANCE". I ENJOYED SEEING SOME OF THE CHARACTERS FROM THE PREVIOUS BOOK. I LIKED THE PROGRESS OF RAM & MARIANNE'S LOVE STORY, I WAS A BIT WORRIED FOR A MINUTE BUT EVERYTHING TURNS OUT RIGHT. THE STORYLINE WAS A LITTLE PREDICTABLE, FOR ME ANYWAY, IT WAS SEXY AND ROMANTIC. THERE ARE TWO REPETITATIVE THINGS THAT GOT ON MY NERVES "PYARI & HONEY, SAID BY THE MAIN CHARACTERS. I DON'T THINK A [...]

    9. I'm not sure I gave this book a chance because I loved Cait and jake. Will there be a book 3? Mari and Ram were cute but just didn't really seem to do it for me. I found myself speed reading towards the end just to finish and find out what was going on. And what was up with the warning from Sara about Jake? That just seemed irrelevant, but because I love Mr. And Mrs. Gorgeous, I want to know. I get it, she was just jealous, but couldn't she see that he has grown up and that was the past and how [...]

    10. 4.5 stars,/b>As a new author her books keep getting better and better! I LOVED this story and the MC's. I was introduced to Ram and Marianne in Pole Dance and could not wait until their story was released. Ram is the Chief of Police and a SEXY hero. Marianne is a sweet and sultry heroine who has had the "hots" for Ram ever since she first met him. I do not want to give any of this story away because it is best to experience their story as you read it. I can say that it definitely was not what [...]

    11. This book was about a girl who took her dream as being a tap dancer, but she got trampled into a situation with a detective. She wanted to stop her dream of being a tap dancer but after she did she felt very bad and sad that she quit so she went back but so did the detective. While her dreams are being ruined the detectives dreams are being granted.This book wasn't the best book in the world. The placements were out of order and it was just plain out confusing to me and I wanted to cry when I fi [...]

    12. I enjoyed this story, it has just the right amount of humor, romance, eroticism and suspense. A little repetitive in parts, but with a consistent and well-structured story.I liked very much the Ram and Marianne's story, though I think that she has a serious problem saying no, which caused her unnecessary inconvenience with several guysso I like that retook part that had remained unfinished situations of the first half but I still expecting a punishment for Jamison, I can not believe he still com [...]

    13. I liked the characters, and there's definitely chemistry between the H/h and the prerequisite hot sex ensues. It could have scored higher if I'd felt there was a stronger mystery or challenges for these two to be together. Considering their cultural differences, I thought it would be a bigger part of the story and I would have welcomed it. The mystery was kind of weak and I didn't feel that tension, wondering if it would all work out. All in all, it wasn't bad, just feel that it could have been [...]

    15. Entertaining and quick read. I first picked up this author because she reminded me of Kristen Ashley but this book had more of her own voice. Marianne and Ram are secondary characters in Hornbuckle's first book, Pole Dance and this is their story.

    16. This book wasn't that strong enough to over come the excitement that I felt reading the first one. Though Ram Patel is very mysterious and strong guy. I liked him a lot. But I wished its more sweeter than the first book.

    17. I like the plot, but there are some scenes that are unnecessary to the story.
