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.

Thursday Tidbits

So you might have heard, my next book is called THE TROUBLE WITH MISTLETOE. And there’s this hot guy named Keane…


And he likes this woman named Willa but he’s screwed things up without even knowing it so he has a lot of making up to do.


Can’t tell you much more without giving things away but here’s a little tease:

“You want to come upstairs, Willa?”

What she wanted was to put her hands back on his chest now that she knew it was as hard as it looked. Instead she gripped either side of her seat with white knuckles. “Of course not.”

“I think you do. I think you want something else too.”

“What I want,” she said as coolly as she could, “is dinner as promised.”

“Liar,” he chided softly.

“Well that’s just rude, calling your date a liar.”

“So it is a date.” His tone was very male and very smug. It should’ve pissed her off but instead it did something hot and erotic to her insides.

Clearly knowing it, he smiled at her and then dragged his teeth over his lower lip as he contemplated her.

Gah. She wanted to do that. And she wanted to do more too. She wanted him shockingly badly and suddenly she couldn’t remember why she shouldn’t. She tried to access her thought processes on the subject but her brain hiccupped and froze. Which surely was the only reason she let go of the death grip on her seat, slid her fingers into his hair, and . . . brushed her mouth over his.

He didn’t move, not a single muscle, but when she pulled back, his eyes had gone dark as night, piercing her with their intensity.

“Don’t read that the wrong way,” she whispered.

“Is there a wrong way to take it when a beautiful woman kisses you?”

So. There it is. And one more thing. I have two ARCs for two lucky winners.

Happy Hump Day

Sometimes there just isn’t enough Tom Hardy in the world for me.


And sometimes I find just the right pic to suit my mood. :rose:

Watch out for that tree…

I’ve had some email asking about our bears. I haven’t been quick enough with the camera lately but here’s pics and an adventure that occurred last May …

Yeah, aren’t they adorable? Two fairly young bear cubs sitting in the tree RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR FRONT DOOR. Know why they’re in the tree? Because my dog is at the base of said tree barking like these two little adorable babies are his long lost buddies.

And then it occurs to me … no way is their momma far away. And that’s when I see her. Pacing just behind our house …

Sigh … and to think I sometimes worry my life is boring …

Monday’s Musing

SO I’M FINALLY HOME. Two weeks gone, one to help my mom recoup from surgery and another to Romance Writer’s of America’s national conference, where I had a ball. Pics to come. But for now, I have a contest. I’m hoping you’ve all got SWEET LITTLE LIES by now, yes? Tell me the next book in the series (bonus points for those of you who read Sweet Little Lies and can tell me what you’re looking forward to in the books ahead) and three of you will win that book.

Also, I can’t believe I forgot to thank you all for putting SWEET LITTLE LIES on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller lists!!!!! Love you all!

From San Diego

So I’m still in sunny, gorgeous San Diego. Had a great signing last night. If you were there, THANK YOU for coming out! I lost my voice early on…


Not that it stopped me …


I hope I got to meet you but if I didn’t…


There’s always next time!

Before you go, I want to hear what you’re all reading!

Thought you maybe you’d appreciate the visual. :heart:
