Description: Penelope Hart is a lonely librarian. Unfortunately, the only men at the library are Mr. Powel and Victor Deveroux, the handsome but snooty new library board chairman. Victor's dark good looks make Penny's heart race, though he's never more than polite to her. One day, Penny finds a gift from a secret admirer on her desk. The scandalous package contains a red paddle. The attached note hints at sweet submission that both shocks and turns Penny on. A series of other naughty gifts follow, finally culminating in an invitation to meet the giver at a discreet hotel. Drawn into a world of heady sensuality, Penny learns that submissiveness can be deliciously powerful.

Rating: 4 Stars, Heat Level: H "Ms. Jans has written a very interesting erotic love story. The Gift embraces the theme of BDSM. Penelope is a smart woman but she?s written a little too innocent for my taste. She also seems to lack any normal self defense mechanism to keep her safe. Lucky for her Mr. X isn?t an ax murderer. Ms Jans gives us no background on Mr. X and little on his personality. Rarely do we get to see beyond the hot kinky sex. The emotional connection is there, but is only expressed in Penelope?s response to Mr. X. Mr. X?s deeds scream that he treasures Penelope, and this makes the story good. The reader shares the emotional struggles with Penelope. Ms Jans works a fine line between keeping me engaged and frustrating me as the reader. This is an interesting BDSM love story."~ Reviewed by: Julie Esperanza, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
4 Angels! "The Gift is a very erotic tale of dominance that turns into love. Vlad and Penny share a very sexually explicit love affair that goes beyond the norm. It is very surprising to Penny to find that she has pent up inhibitions that can be concurred through her trust and love of Vlad. This story is not for innocent minds, but is very open with the sexual experiences one can have. Honey Jans has written such a tantalizing story I give her 4 Angels." ~ Reviewed by: Briana, Fallen Angels Reviews
It was ten o'clock in the morning when Penelope Hart saw the package. She and Joan were heading for their favorite table in the library's breakroom.
"Hey, girl, looks like somebody's got a birthday," Joan said. "Why didn't you tell me?"
Penny joined her at the table looking at the gift, wrapped in expensive silver paper. "It can't be for me. It's not my birthday."
Joan picked the box up and shook it. Something inside rattled. "It's got your name on it, Penny."
Penny grabbed the box from her, smiling. "Then hand it over, please. I wonder who would leave this here?" The box was flat and square. Her name was printed on the tag in a crisp hand. Was it a book? As a librarian, people were always giving her books. She tore it open, to see something red nestled inside. A ping-pong paddle! How odd, she didn't play ping-pong. Lifting it out, she saw that it was bigger than that and covered in red leather, a little padded. She turned it over in her hand showing it to Joan, who giggled. "What on earth is this?"
