More About the Author



Jacqui Rose is a novelist who hails from South Yorkshire. Jacqui first came to appreciate the power of the written word when as a child she charged her classmates a packet of sherbet dips to write their essays for them. Adopted at a young age and always a daydreamer, she felt isolated growing up in a small mining village in South Yorkshire and it was her writing which kept her company. Sent to boarding school as a teenager, it was there she discovered her love for acting and in particular her love of making people laugh. Before taking her exams she was expelled and after a stint in drama school she decided she wanted to be an actress.

Jacqui started teaching voluntarily;drama and writing workshops for prisoners, ex-offenders, the homeless and people suffering from mental health issues. She helped them to develop and create their own plays and ideas, giving them a voice which seemed so lacking within their lives but it was several years before Jacqui herself wrote again.

Jacqui's introduction back to writing was when she began to write and perform stand-up comedy and although this was very short lived it brought back the joy and freedom which writing gave to her, showing her what she'd missed out on for all the years she'd stopped writing.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
16 year old Laila Khan has befriended her 17 year old classmate, Ray-Ray Thompson. Since the death of her father, her uncle, Mahmood Khan has become head of the family. He is a strict authoritarian in upholding the honour of the family name. Ray-Ray's father is a powerful London gangster currently imprisoned. This innocent teenage relationship triggers a sequence of events that rapidly escalates into a vengeful, relentless family feud between the Khan and Thompson families with Laila and Ray-Ray caught in it.

Jacqui Rose skilfully develops several plotlines, including a psychotic kidnapper, that progress into a fast-paced novel packed with action, breathtaking chases and violent life-threatening confrontations. The plot strands are ingeniously interlinked with neat twists, surprises and coincidences that lead to a nerve-racking and unpredictable ending. The final paragraph has an unexpected ironic touch.

Jacqui Rose has written another superb exciting and exhilarating book that really is difficult to put down as the narrative changes in direction, locations and relationships rip along at such a rate that as a reader I constantly wanted to know what was on the next page. Enthralling, entertaining and enjoyable. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book, could not put it down.
It was gritty, unpredictable and a really good story.
The best book I have read in a while, it is as good if not better than a martina Cole or similar authoress.
I won't spoil the contents of the book but if one reads the first chapter you will be hooked.
Looking forward to her next novel.

By I Love Reading TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 3 Sept. 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
its going to be difficult to get into another book after reading this. It was a fantastic book, very well written, and unputdownable.
I just had to read at every oportunity, and then was gutted when i finished it.
I loved how the story, and all the different characters finally came together.
Gritty, unpredictable, Unputdownable, Fantastic, Fast paced. This will definatly be on my best reads of 2013 list..
Jacqui Rose has certainly got herself up there and if you enjoy reading From Authors like, Jessie Keane, Kimberley Chambers and Mandasue Heller. Then you will love this book..
When Laila takes the chance of holding hands with her teenage crush Ray Ray on the walk home from school, she has no idea of the trouble she's about to cause.
Perfect for fans of Martina Cole, Dishonour is a hard-hitting, gritty page-turner.

`No matter what she did, he would always be there, right behind her. She could never escape'

Laila is sixteen years old and beautiful, kind and clever; traits liable to get her into trouble and make people dislike her ...
She doesn't make her life any easier when she falls in love with an English boy, bringing shame on her family and attracting the attention of some very dangerous men. These men are always watching her and will stop at nothing to get things done their way.

Soon there's a terrible `accident' and Laila is forced to make a deal with the devil. And pay a very heavy price for breaking the rules. Laila has been forced to marry a cruel, controlling man by the people who are supposed to love her the most. Without anyone to help her, she has to find her own way out...

Format: Paperback
Since the death of her father Laila's life has been controlled by her uncle, the only time she gets a chance to be herself is at school where she befriends new student Raymond 'Ray Ray' Thompson, son of notorious London gangster Ray, who has moved up to Yorkshire with his mother for a fresh start after his father was jailed.

But this innocent friendship soon sets off a trigger of events that will tear them apart and life will never be the same again for either of them.

Having previously read Taken and Trapped I had high expectations for Dishonour and I wasn't disappointed as it was another drama filled story that had me hooked right from the off. I loved the diversity of the characters and how the various storylines all interlinked with one another till they reached their conclusions.

This story takes us from Bradford to Pakistan and London as we follow the lives of Laila, Ray Ray and their families. I was routing for Laila to shake off the ties of her family and make a new independent life for herself, and was definitely silent cheering as certain characters got their comeuppance although the ending was certainly left open with one character so it will be interesting to see if he makes a re-appearance in future books.

As it's taken me so long to read this book, her new book Betrayed has already been published so I've now added it to my wishlist to read, preferably before her next book Avenged is published in August.

It seemed to take forever for this book to be released and it was not a disappointment. I am a great fan of Jacqui Rose and can not wait for the next book.
