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.

Sneak Peek

Shh, an advanced sneak peek at MY KIND OF WONDERFUL:

“What I’m trying to say is that I want a one-night stand.” She met his gaze, clearly waiting for his reaction.

He opened his mouth and then closed it again.

“I want you,” she said softly.

“For tonight,” he clarified.


Ignoring the unmistakable flash of disappointment—what the hell was that about?—he pulled her inside, kicked his door shut, and gently pushed her up against the wood and cupped her face. “You need to be sure.”

“I am.” She blinked. “Are you? Because it’s okay if you’re not. I can find someone else. I can make a list.”

This stopped him. She could make a list? Of who? Not important, he told himself. Shake it off. “You’re not going to need a list for this, Bailey.”

She stared at him. “No?”

Hell no. “I already told you that I want you. Now I’m going to show you.” He gave her a few seconds to absorb that before he leaned in and kissed her, putting every ounce of his want and need into it.

Preorder and make an author’s day!

Where to go?

Did It Again

Was on a snow hike yesterday, music cranked up to earsplitting levels, singing to myself as I went. You see where this is going, right? Now to be fair to me, I was out in the middle of nowhere, with no one in sight, no one around for miles. I knew this because I was making the only tracks …

So I sang.

And sang.

And then something made me turn around. I wish I hadn’t. There was a guy behind me. And he wasn’t just smiling. No, he was bent over, hands on his knees laughing his ass off.

Yeah. That was embarrassing.

ANYWAY … what’s the last song that you sang to? I’ll go first! The song I was wailing to when I got caught: Adele’s new one — Hello. And let’s just say she sings it much better than me.

Now you.
