More About the Author

Miriam Minger's first novel Twin Passions was called "A fabulous debut!" by Romantic Times. Since then, Miriam has swept readers into her unforgettable historical romances with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. She is the winner of several Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards--including Best Medieval Historical Romance of the Year for The Pagan's Prize--and a two-time RITA Award Finalist for A Hint of Rapture and Captive Rose.

Miriam Minger's contemporary novel Ripped Apart, "An absolute gem of a romantic suspense. Five Stars!" has won rave reviews from romance and thriller readers alike. Miriam is also happy to announce that her Little Mike and Maddie series of children's picture books about a lovable pair of dogs and their motorcycle adventures is available under her pen name, Miriam Aronson.

Bestselling author Miriam Minger says: It's been a wonderful experience to have all my novels published as eBooks, but the greatest thrill for me as a writer is when readers take the time to let me know they enjoyed one of my stories...

"I have read hundreds if not thousands of books in my lifetime and not once have I ever been moved to comment on one until now. This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I laughed. I cried. I remained at the edge of my seat devouring every single word you wove with this incredible story. I just wanted to let you know how deeply this story moved me and to thank you for creating it."

Wow. This one left me speechless...and grateful. I had done my job, which is to make you feel like you've dropped feet first into a world that captures your imagination and emotions so vividly you might be living and breathing the story. And that's one of the purest joys of reading, isn't it? I know it is for me...and it is my hope to continue to write books that make you feel the passion, live and breathe the adventure, laugh and cry and touch your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barely Any Errors-Well Done 1 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was extremely good and barely any errors, either !!! That alone made it worthwhile reading !
It's about a young lad of 6 who is kidnapped after a recent heart transplant. I won't share the reason WHY he's kidnapped but it's an interesting story and full of action. His mum gets help from an ex military attache guy whose wife was murdered some years ago in Mexico. It seems the cases could be entwined so they both travel there for their different reasons.
It was very good indeed and one I'd recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars held me from the first page 28 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this book very much - although the outcome was inevitable - very unsual storyline and felt real empathy with the main characters. I am not going to spoil the book by describing the story in great detail as so many people do with their reviews, for this price get it and give it a go, you will not be disappointed - enjoy!!

3.0 out of 5 stars A thriller that tugs the heartstrings 14 Oct 2011
By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Well it is def. a story with a twist on organ donation. I thought it would be about the feelngs of both parents when one child dies and another receives their organ. I couldn't have been more wrong. The organ donors family does everything they can to get that last living piece of their child back, unfortunately it is already inside a new child. This action packed story is about the lengths the mother of that child will go to get him back, with a subplot of her mercenary helper, who is out to avenge his girlfriends death. I think Eduardo could have voiced his intentions a little less frequently, his going over his game plan and intentions a lot,was a little repetetive. You can tell that this author has a hankering for the romantic genre, but irrespective of that subtle love story hidden amongst the gunfire and deaths, it is a pleasant afternoon read. One that will tug your heartstrings and placate your need for violence at the same time. I received a free copy of this book for my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Page Turner! 14 Dec 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
First let me say that this type of book is not my usual read, but I decided to give it a try. I am not at all disappointed with this book. It is well written, action packed and pulls at the heart strings. The story is about a mother who has a son with a bad heart and without a transplant, he will die. There is a tragic accident involving students on a bus, and 2 little boys lose their lives. Of course the family of one little boy that dies donates his heart and the little boy (Tyler) that needs the heart gets it. This is when the action and more tragedy starts.

One of the little boys killed in the accident is accidentally mistaken for the other, and the wrong child's heart is taken in the confusion. The parents of the boy that heart that was donated by accident are heart broken and furious that their son was cut open and his heart given to another. The father of the little boy happens to be a drug lord in Mexico, and the mother demands her husband get her son back, even though he is dead.

Tyler is kidnapped by the drug lord father of the little boy who's heart he now has. He is taken to Mexico and this sets off a chain of events that carry on through the rest of the book. Tyler's mother desperately wants her son back, so she goes to Mexico to search for her son, and is determined to not leave without him.

I am going to stop there because I don't want to give away anymore of the story. This was a GREAT read and I am glad that I did not pass it up. I will be looking at more books from this author. I received this book free in exchange for my honest review of the book. Love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars this book had me from page one 23 Dec 2011
By kimbacaffeinate - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Ripped Apart was a gripping physiological thriller with a dash of romance. This tale had me riveted from page one. Minger's plot is filled with danger, suspense, lots of twists and a storyline you aren't sure to forget.

The protagonist Clare Carson has a six year old son named Tyler. Tyler suffers from a heart defect, which will one day require surgery. When he stops breathing at the mall, he is rushed to the hospital. Meanwhile, a bus load of kids on their way to camp are hit by a semi-truck. Two little boys die on the bus that day. One boy's parents donate his organs; the other's realize there has been a mistake. The doctors are able to revive Tyler, and miraculously a heart is available. I really liked Clare. She is one tough cookie and no one messes with her little boy. The tale that unfolds involves the drug cartel, a sexy, rugged, ex-militia man named Jake, two mothers who undeniably love their sons and a man who lives by greed and control. The action and chase scenes were intense and genuine. I couldn't put this book down. The romance that develops between Jake and Clare is honest, heated and believable.

I highly recommend Ripped Apart to fans of psychological thrillers and romance. This novel is currently available in eBook format.

I want to thank the BookRooster team for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked! 17 April 2012
By Vandernise1 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to
review it. After reading this book, I will seek out more novels by this author.

This book had me hooked in about 5 minutes. I think anyone who is a parent would not be able to put it down. It plays to every parent's worst fears. In addition to getting us emotionally invested in the outcome for this woman and her child, the novel also has a little bit of everything. There is drama, suspense, action, romance, exotic locales, the brooding hero. I especially liked that we also were given insight into the lives and motivators behind the "bad guys". There are also enough plot twists with said bad guys to keep us guessing. Definitely give this a read. It's a hell of a ride.
