Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

"Love "to die for" alpha males, feisty heroines, electrifying battles-- not to mention, steamy sex? Taylor Lee captures the genre and ups the ante." Fit to be Tied


Overview:
1890: In a world marked by corruption, prejudice and hate, Lei Chang is determined to be the first woman kung fu master in the country. Little does she know that the grandmaster, everyone's hero, is as accomplished a lover as he is a warrior.

But be warned:" Struck by Thunder" isn't for the faint of heart. The language is rough, the sex explicit, and the fighting ferocious. For readers who want their romance as hot as the story is riveting, this book is a "don't miss!"


**More Praise**

"Wyatt McManus is arrogant, dangerous, and rules his world. Fortunately, Lei Chang is indomitable and up to the challenge. Torn between two powerful, controlling men - her lover and her father, Lei proves she is a match for them both." L. Takamiya

"This is a story as rich and complex as the late 19th century American West it portrays. Chinese Tongs, a mixed race grandmaster, who is also a wealthy rancher and political kingmaker, plus a young Chinese woman fighting to become a kung fu master makes this book as unusual as it is engaging." Erotica Rocks

"If you are looking for non-stop action, warrior men and women kicking up a storm, with a great love story to boot, grab "Struck by Thunder" and prepare for a long night. Once you begin, you won't be able to put it down. Guaranteed!" Action junkie


Can't get enough of Maya Banks, Lora Leigh, and Shannon McKenna's sexy, heart-stopping adventures? "Struck by Thunder" will fire up your mind, your heart and your hormones!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hot and Spicy Love Triangle with a Twist 9. Dezember 2011
Von Tracy Webber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm used to reading romances where the woman must choose between two men, but this story focuses on Wyatt ... a sexy Kung Fu master and horse trainer extraordinaire ... that desires two completely different women. Both are forbidden, but for different reasons.

He doesn't mind breaking a few rules, and doesn't hesitate to seduce one of them, the wife of a despicable politician, fairly early in the story. But when Lei -- the exotic and virginal daughter of a dangerous man -- is also his marital arts student, he fights his instincts and tries to maintain a safe distance as her sexual awakening grows more insistent.

Wyatt is an honorable man, but he's still a man. He fights against his conscience as well as social mores, the memory of his dead wife and his obsession with Lei.

In addition to the heart-racing, raw sexuality, I also enjoyed the historic setting in the Wyoming frontier as well as Ms. Lee's riveting prose. Highly recommended for fans of Romance that enjoy a page-turning and thrilling story as with sizzling love scenes.

This is a great book to read with your significant other, guaranteed to add a little spice to your life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Interesting Blend of Kung Fu Meet American West 19. Mai 2012
Von Sophia Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was intrigued by the blurb on this book about the Kung Fu fighting in the American West and a romance between a half-breed Kung Fu Master and a half-Chinese female student. It was quite an incredible story though not for the faint of heart.

Lei Chang is the daughter of the strongest Tong leader in America and she wants more than anything to become a Grand Master of Kung Fu. Her father, Wan, cannot deny her so she is sent to study at the prestigious dojo of Joey, who trained the current best Grand Master, Wyatt McManus a wealthy Wyoming rancher and businessman.
Wyatt and Lei do not hit it off well because he is arrogant and condescending and she has a temper. Lei loses that temper in a match with Wyatt and ends up showing disrespect by spitting at him. He then publicly humiliates her. But this is the moment he begins feeling attracted to the young fiery woman and she with him when later he forces a kiss that she eventually reciprocates.
Wyatt is a very hard, dangerous man both to men in his business dealings and with women when he 'loves them and leaves them' for the next one. Lei has been sheltered all her life and Wyatt's ways are an eye opener for her. But some things she is quite used to like being the target of half the students in the dojo who are from rival tongs. She walks a fine line to keep her father from pulling her away from her training and keeping him from interfering because of her growing (albeit mixed) feelings for Wyatt.
In the meantime, Martin and Jesse Kendrick leave the high society of Boston to travel back to his family home in Wyoming. Martin is running for governor. He uses the excuse of Jesse's horse having behavioral issues to approach Wyatt who has a knack with horses. Martin wants Wyatt's backing and his money, but makes the mistake first thing of unwittingly insulting Wyatt and his men by slinging racial and class slurs to what he thinks are just a group of cowboys. Jesse is embarrassed, but also intrigued when she meets the larger than life Wyatt who swats her swaggering husband down like he's a gnat.
So many brands are now in the fire of this story. It was one exciting ride to the very end.

The plot is one long twisted rush both due to the romantic entanglements of Wyatt with both Lei and Jesse and then the political storyline comes into the forefront and finally the Tong and Kung Fu element.

Truthfully, I'm giving this story one more star than I intended because I realize that it was my own preference and not the author's storytelling that is the issue.
My hang up is Wyatt. There are many aspects about his character that I liked, but there was one big glaring facet that angered me- his treatment of women. Both women told him 'no' or indicated discomfort with something he wanted them to do while having sex and he just pushed them until they agreed. It was like a Dom who disregarded the safe word. Even if they enjoyed it afterwards, 'no' should have been 'no'. To be fair, I get why he was rough since he was an angry hurting man over the death of his wife, but that does not mean it gave him the right to disrespect those who came to him willingly. He wanted the women to try things and he indicates that he would have stopped if at that point they did not want it.

That being the said, I was impressed with Taylor Lee's ability to write complex characters. Wyatt was probably the most complex, but Lei and the others were layered and interesting to get to know. Wan was very formidable as a tong leader, but had a soft spot for his daughter. Martin was a true 'love to hate' guy. I loved the men who were Wyatt's friends. The camaraderie was great and one of the things I enjoy about the Western genre.

Just so the reader knows what they are getting themselves into this story offers violence, rough sex play and dirty sexual talk that might not be everyone's reading preference.

Overall well-written and an interesting take on Western historical fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen So well written, a real page-turner! 17. September 2012
Von Mimi Barbour - USA Today Best-selling Author - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In this story, Lei, a beautiful Chinese girl meets with the handsome, blue-eyed Indian called Wyatt who is also known as the Grandmaster. He earned the name, and the legend attached to it, by killing a tong leader who had tried to kill him. Wyatt is a rich rancher who owns great deal of land, runs the most famous dojo for Kung Fu, and is known for his magical ability as a horse whisperer and trainer. But the man is haunted by the horrible things that happened to him in his past, and by the death of his beloved wife. When he agrees to fight with Lei and train her brothers, he's shocked by her determination to beat him. He treats her gently in the ring. Hating him for his dismissal of her fighting skills because she's a female, she spits in his face. And the battle is on. This book just keeps getting better, and HOTTER, until I just gave up the housework & other chores and finished the darn thing. Whew...am I ever glad I did!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Was this written by a man? 16. Juni 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am not sure if we can call this book a romance novel, a saving grace would be to call it a Kung Fu novel, the one person I really like is Lei, Wyatt on the other hand is everything about a man a woman shouldn't date least of all fall in love with. Not only is he arrogant, according to the author (I paraphrase) "the kind of arrogance you are drawn to," although I am yet to see that kind of arrogance, he is totally disrespectful towards women. What is that with Jesse?
I mean what is the deal about the anal sex, I felt like it was rape especially after the girl consistently said she didn't want to do it but because he was mad he needed that. I know we are suppose to feel pity for him considering he was raped by men when he was a kid, but the author could have expanded on that.
I get the he is not a perfect man, type stuff but even his flaws are celebrated, I mean he could be superman, not only is he electing people to govt, he is a horse whisperer and a Dr?!
Although I don't like the man I am stuck reading the book, I am on the second one, what can I say, its free. *shrug*
Another thing I don't get is the race thing, Lei could have been pure Chinese and be beautiful why does it feel like it was the mixed heritage that gave her her good looks.
