Jill's Blog

Welcome to my daily blog. If this is your first time, I'm a romance writer and a misplaced city girl currently living in the wild Sierras. I tend to have a lot of I-Love-Lucy moments that I share here but sometimes we talk about books, TV, and our favorite cookies. Okay, my favorite cookies. In any case, please feel free to comment by clicking on the Comments at the bottom of any entry. If you're too shy, that's okay, just know I love having you.

The Shalvis Pet Wars

I’m happy to announce that Oldest and The Boy are keeping the adorable foster fur baby Cooper, aka Mini Coop. Let’s just say Frat Boy isn’t thrilled. Here he is, asking me … “when is he leaving?”


In another area of the house, Satan– er, Sadie, is plotting DumbAss’s death.

It’s a dog eat dog world. Or in this house, cat eat dog… And puppy.

Sweet Little Lies…

Thought I’d post a tease of my new book SWEET LITTLE LIES.

Sweet Little Lies


“No.” She bit her lower lip. “Maybe.”

“Tell me.”

She opened her mouth and then shook her head. “My mom taught me to show not tell.” And then her hands went to his chest, one of them right over the band aid, which she touched gently, running her fingers over it as if she wished she could take away the pain. “I just … need to see …”

“See what?”

Her gaze dropped to his mouth and again she hesitated. Tenderness mixed with his sudden pervasive hunger and need, a dizzying combination for a guy who prided himself on not feeling much. “Pru—“

“Shh a second,” she whispered. And then closing the gap, she brushed her lips over his.

At the connection, he groaned, loving the way her hands tightened on him. She murmured his name, a soft plea and yet somehow also a demand, and he wanted to both smile and tug her down to the couch.

Trying to cool his jets, trying to let her stay in charge, he attempted to hold back, but she let out this breathy little whimper like he was the best thing she’d ever tasted. Threading his fingers through her hair, he took over the kiss, slow, deeper now, until she let out another of those delicious little whimpers and practically climbed his body.

Yeah, she liked that, a whole hell of a lot, and he closed his arms hard around her, lifting her up against him for more.

What do you think? Worth a preorder?

Happy Hump Day

I know this is naughtier than usual but I saw the pic and decided it was today’s writing inspiration and today’s hump day post all in one.


So basically, I guess I’m saying sorry but not sorry. B-)
