Shiloh Walker's books remain full of awesome. I have yet to read one that I didn't enjoy. I've been having a little trouble lately finding a romantic suspense that actually satisfies my expectations but Shiloh kind of knows exactly what I want from a good book. It helps that there is a second chance romance in this one. I am a sucker for those.

The book starts of nicely, not making us wait for the good stuff. We meet our main characters, feel the sexual tension between them and learn that someone has stolen Shay's secret identity as an author.

Shay has a traumatic past that keeps her up at night and prevents her from trust people. She can barely survive with her sanity intact. The scars of what happened to her run deep (mentally and physically) and she doesn't want to burden anyone else with that knowledge. And to a certain extent she is right to do that, judging by Elliot's reaction, I can definitely see why she kept that knowledge to herself.

However, this woman who has been emotionally, mentally and physically traumatized is NOT weak. She is not the kind of person to wait for someone to come around and rescue her. She takes matters in her hands. She takes action. She is strong and has a lot of will power and is overall a very likable female lead.

Elliot. Elliot is perfect. Yes perfect is not a term I use a lot (okay maybe I lie) but he is the perfect guy for Shay. He had the guts to break up with a woman he loved because he knew she would never trust him, to stay around and hope for something that wouldn't happen wouldn't be fair to him and he realized that. Not a lot of people would.

HUGE emotional rollercoaster 30 Oct. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Shiloh Walker is one of my favorite authors. Sometimes, I let stuff build up inside of myself for too long and I need to read a book that will let me cry it all out. I can always count on Ms. Walker to provide that release for me. This book was no exception. It was a huge emotional rollercoaster.

Shay Morgan has dealt with more in her life than anyone ever should, and most by the time she was 16. She doesn't even remember half of it. She is so lonely after the break-up with Elliot. She couldn't open up to him and tell him about her past, and he got tired of waiting for her to.

Then Shay finds out someone is trying to take over the life she has built for herself. They have been signing her books, setting up a Facebook page, a twitter account and a blog. Then they cross the line, they bring Elliot into and threaten his lively hood by accusing him of rape.

There are so many twists and turns in this book. It started out kind of slow, but then the twists started coming and my head was spinning. Shay is a very strong woman. Anyone who could go through everything she has and come out sane has to be. She sees herself as a coward though. Most people would just crumble if they had that much crap coming at them, and coming from all different directions.

I love a romantic suspense story that has you guessing until almost the end. Shiloh always delivers on that end. Stolen kept spinning until I didn't who was what. I loved it! Keep up the incredible work Shiloh!

My first Shiloh Walker romantic suspense won't be my last! 30 Oct. 2012
By Anna (Bobs Her Hair) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Stolen is slightly disturbing, dark, and gruesome as the heroine's meticulously structured life unravels. As with many heroines with dark pasts, Shay Morgan survived an event that would drive most people insane. She's a survivor who did not remain whole.

Shay discovered a limiting way to cope with her fears and found success as a published writer. Her claustrophobic lifestyle effectively melds with Earth's Ends, Alaska; the small town inhabited by the man who patiently wooed her and lost hope for a meaningful relationship. Shay's computer is her main connection to the world. It's mostly through this machine that she watches her life seized, the stress of which exacerbates her nightmares into new and darker territory.

When a heroine has a dark past it typically means she has suffered abuse of some form. This is true for Shay. It would have been grueling to read the horrors she suffered in its entirety, but Ms. Walker spares us that pain. Her abuse is revealed in quick flashbacks, nightmares, and journaling with the careful use of metaphors. The intense revelations reveal Shay as an emotionally strong yet damaged heroine, as the life-changing event would have put most people into a mental institution or long-time psychiatric care. I was very curious about her time between the event and her present time, but the information wasn't necessary to make this story effective.

Stolen is focused on Shay's present dilemma of someone stealing her identity, along with her long-buried memories floating to the surface. Someone is taking over her life and Shay will fight for it. This is where the heroine becomes proactive and not a shadow person incapable of functioning outside her office. It was a relief to realize Shay was someone I could root for and a heroine capable of having a convincing romance.

Elliot Winter is believable hero for this damaged heroine. Shay and Elliot have two years of history before this story begins. Shay has a patient, intuitive, compassionate, and loving hero. He also happens to be ex-military lending him an `alpha' like veneer some readers love. [Note to fans: He co-owns a bookstore with his sister and loves to read. This is a good thing!]

The pacing is steady and tension-filled. The villain maintains a steady presence and will keep readers guessing. I was a little disappointed the Alaska setting wasn't used to its full advantage. I thought something more was going to be done with it. A claustrophobic atmosphere similar to the Al Pacino movie "Insomnia" would have been edgy, but it wasn't the direction the author chose. (Who am I to say? I'm only a reader/movie junkie that loves a good thriller!)

The story did fizzle near the end as the climax neared, but I really enjoyed reading my first Shiloh Walker romantic suspense and would recommend it to fans of this sub-genre. It was a thrill to read and played like a movie in my mind, which is always a good feeling in my book!

An Appealing Novel 9 Nov. 2012
By Dianne E. Socci-Tetro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Stolen by Shiloh Walker

This could have been classified as a `horror' novel - the heck with trying to classify it as romantic/ suspense. As a matter of fact this book takes what are the normal rules for a romance and pretty much throws them all out the window. This book is written in a manner that very much reminded me of a Nora Roberts novel and I couldn't seem to get by this similarity. "Angels Falls".

While this was a good novel and its idea should have been great; I found that I wasn't as enthralled with it as much as I should have been. Stolen is a novel that bases most of its plot on someone taking over the female protagonist's identity and alienating Shay (the protagonist) from anyone else in her life. It also serves to dreg up for shay all the most horrible aspects of her youth; and believe me me they are freakishly horrible aspects. It may have been better for us if the author didn't just sort of slide over Shay's past and pulled this novel into the full `horror' genre instead of this half-way book. This novel also shows just what a big influence that things like FaceBook and Twitter has over much of our lives.

There was too little interaction between real characters and too much inner -dialoguing, angst, recriminations and beating ones-self up over events that they could not and never will be able to, have changed.

I can easily see how this novel is going to appeal to all kinds of readers.

utterly captivating suspenseful read 16 Jan. 2013
By C. Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shay Morgan has taken great pains to escape the events of her past. She earns a living as a successful author but she's extremely reclusive. Aside from her website Shay doesn't engage in anything that would gain her more public exposure. In fact, her unwillingness to allow anyone to get close to her is why she and Elliot are no longer a couple. The trouble is someone is impersonating her and in doing so threatens to destroy the safe existence she's found in her antisocial ways.

Shay's ex-boyfriend and bookstore owner Elliot Winter couldn't believe his luck when his favorite author, Shane Neil, visited his store. She autographed books on the shelves and even gave him an advanced reading copy of her next release. He had no way of knowing that he was being deceived - and is completely stunned by Shay's reaction to the situation. Even her decision to confide in him that she is the real Shane Neil is met with disbelief but something isn't adding up and Elliot is determined to help Shay get to the bottom of the truth behind the woman who's posing as Shane Neil.

Shay is a survivor. As a child she endured a hellish experience that left her scarred for life - both emotionally and physically - but much of what happened is blocked from her memory, only partially surfacing in her nightmares. Thanks to her past she allows very few people close to her and zealously guards her privacy which is why she comes unglued when she becomes aware of a Facebook page she supposedly started and all the media attention suddenly coming her way. While Shay is freaking out over the whole thing, Darcy, her assistant, seems to think it's great that Shay has decided to embrace the public through media outlets.

Shay values her privacy but in order to shut down her imposter she knows she's going to have to go public. Fortunately Elliot, while still reeling from the fact that Shay's held so much back from him is there to support her. During their entire relationship she never shared anything about her background or what she did for work, maintaining a more friendly relationship than boyfriend/girlfriend. All that's about to change and Elliot is thrilled because he's still very much in love with her. Is he prepared for the shock of learning about Shay's childhood or the stunning revelation about who's sabotaging her career?

Shiloh Walker's STOLEN proved to be an utterly captivating read. Shay's secretive and isolated demeanor really struck a chord with me and I couldn't help but empathize with her over the entire situation. At the same time I was able to feel Elliot's pain at not really being able to share their lives together. In a way having her identity stolen is a mixed blessing that comes with stunning consequences and no small amount of dredged up painful memories. While I found Darcy's behavior odd I didn't see anything truly alarming about it until later on in the story but I was absolutely stunned when the pieces of the puzzle started falling into place and the entire twisted story about the stolen identity began to fall into place. I found STOLEN to be as heartbreaking as it was endearing with characters I won't soon forget and will want to revisit again in the future.

exciting psychological romantic suspense 30 Oct. 2012
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shay Morgan survived a brutal childhood that turned her into a recluse. She moved to Earth's End, Alaska to be as far away from her tormentor and becomes a hermitic writer who uses electrons when she has to reach someone. To even her shock, she had a boyfriend, village bookstore owner Elliot Winter, but he ended it a month ago when she refused to tell him her darkest secrets.

Shay becomes the victim of identity theft as someone using her name has done book signings, stared a blog and Facebook page. That individual fired Shay's agent and accuses Elliot of rape. Having seen his military career destroyed by false accusations, Elliot will not allow déjà vu to occur again if he can end the lies. He believes Shay when she says she did not accuse him, but she hesitates to tell him about her nightmarish childhood although she knows they must team up to end the insidious assault.

This is an exciting psychological romantic suspense starring two flawed individuals; each carrying the weight of the past on their respective souls as neither is very trusting. The identity theft is brilliantly achieved as few know what the recluse looks like as she does everything remotely. Shiloh Walker provides a taut thriller that will have fans reconsidering on line activity requiring personal information.
