What’s next

So I’ve had a lot of email, FB and blog posts asking me what’s next, and finally I have an answer for you… My publisher (Grand Central) has just contracted me to write more Lucky Harbor novels!!

I don’t have any more details other than that. Okay, well I sort of do. I know that there will be a new trilogy. I know that the first new hero will be a San Francisco Lieutenant Detective who goes through hell at work and escapes to the house his grandma left him in Lucky Harbor. All Luke Hanover wants is peace and quiet, except … there’s a woman in his house, looking a little bit wild and crazy as she stands nearly naked in his kitchen breaking up with someone’s voice mail. Meet Luke:

Hero number two will be Luke’s childhood best friend, Jack, a sexy hot Lucky Harbor firefighter. More on Jack to come later … (as well as the third muskateer, the three guys were childhood trouble makers)

So. Happy? Annoyed? I have to say, I’m so honored and thrilled and excited. And grateful to all of you who’ve bought my books. Now go ahead, let’s discuss. :cool:

  13. This is good news. This is very good news. Of course, hearing about any new books you have coming out is good news. :) Have loved the Lucky Harbor series so far, and look forward to the next Trilogy. You going to give Robyn Carr and her Virgin River series a run for it’s money? ;-)

  14. Well, the first time you asked about more Lucky Harbor I thought 6 would be enough. I don’t wanna get tired of it, BUT I have to say I am completely excited! I just can’t get enough of this series. I truly believe they get better with each one. As long as you keep writing other books too! I get sad when I don’t have a new Jill book!

  17. :lol: Yaa!!! So excited for you and for more Lucky Harbor :!:

  18. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

  19. Best news ever! I love the Lucky Harbor series! Can’t wait for the next three to come out!

  20. This is so awesome! I was kind of bummed when I thought the last Lucky Harbor book would be out next week. It left me with nothing to look forward to, but now I am psyched!


  21. Yay! I love Lucky Harbor. I want to live there. Although as I have said in the past, I am more of the age of these hunky men’s fathers. How about a widowed or divorced hunky dad as a sub-plot? Yummo.

  22. YAY! Tenative release dates? I need something before baby comes in January when I won’t have time to read anymore. :)

  23. Oh yes he is definitely a Luke!! Can’t wait to read his story, as well as Jack’s & the others. Congrats and so happy that Lucky Harbor is around for a while longer, Awesome Jill!!!

  25. no time to comment now. gotta do the happy dance. lol

  26. So happy! And so excited for you! Of course your publisher wants more Lucky Harbor books…I mean, they are AWESOME!

  27. OMG!!! Can’t wait!!! woohoo!!

    and big congrats!!!!

  28. Excited! So Luke, Jack, and unnamed are childhood friends – like the guys in the first 3 books – did all 6 know each other in Lucky Harbor?

    It seems you have the chance to bring in lots of new people – being a tourist town someone could have visited and then come back or have a relative that lives/lived there. And it should be interesting to see if there will be a cross-over with characters from other stories making an appearance and showing how their lives have changed since the beginning.


  29. Yay! I have really enjoyed the Lucky Harbor books! I’m excited for more!

  30. I’m really excited there’s going to be more happening in Lucky Harbor, equally excited awaiting the release of the third Animal book…..but just wondering if there are any plans to write more of the Pacific Heat series….I love Double Play and Slow Heat. Keep em coming!!!

  31. Congrats! Lucky Harbor is a wonderful town and I have been wondering about more residents. I alsO love the inter-connection between the characters. I feel like I am visiting with old friends. Yay!! 😍😍😍

  32. Wow, you just made my day:) im so happy, i read so much that you guys can’t keep up with me..lol So just hearing that more books are coming…Yay…woohoo……love your books..keep them coming…Have a great day :grin:

  33. That is such great news! I love Lucky Harbor and all the crazy, fun people who live there. Yay!!!

  34. Congrats!!!

    Looking forward to the books – big question is…what will the chapter quotes/saying be??? Loved the “advise” and “chocoholic” quotes in the previous books – they always provided a good ole chuckle.

  35. SOOOOO FREAKIN’ HAPPY TO HEAR THIS!!!! I yelled “YES!” so loud my Shepherd jumped about 3 feet in the air. I am in complete love with Lucky Harbor and wish there was a real Lucky Harbor I could visit.

  36. OMG so so happy!!! sounds like another great series. childhood friend is a great idea!!! Keep them coming

  37. Oh my Ty & Sawyer may have some competition for the hottest guy in Lucky Harbor.

  38. This is the best news… Congrats… The Pointer Sister song “I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it” is going through my head at this news…

  61. Love your premise with Luke and the “crazy woman”. Congrats on the new contract!

  62. I loved the first 3 Lucky Harbor books. I bought and read “Lucky in Love” and “At Last” the day they hit the shelves, and I have my calendar marked still waiting on hunky doctor Josh. And now we’re gonna get a HAUNTED DETECTIVE, A SEXY HOT FIREMAN, and A 3RD EQUALLY HOT FRIEND YET TO BE NAMED…the only thing bad about any of that is the long wait ahead until we get to read these next three fabulous books!!

  63. Yea! Go Jill!
