Trying out something new. The title of my first video blog is:
New Glasses, Messy Desk, and My Dog’s Backside
Yeah, I didn’t plan that last thing.
Anyway, here goes!
What do you think? Give up my day job? Shoot another one?
Thanks for watching!
Happy Millionaire Monday, everybody!
Let’s talk about my favorite millionaire: Landon Downey. Here is a guy who is very focused on business in today world. When it comes time to pour a glass of scotch for the very attractive Kimber Reynolds, he realizes he can’t talk about business with her.
Of course, Landon’s small talk endeavor leads to something a little more… interesting. ;)
Books & Co: http://
Tell me, are you a fan of small talk? Or do you find you avoid questions like “Hot enough for you?” Or “Are we having fun yet?”
I’ve wanted to be a Harlequin Junkie Top Pick since the moment I found out about Harlequin Junkie. I used to read the reviews and wish to see that banner over my cover someday.
Well, Landon and Kimber MADE IT!!!
I’m proud to share an excerpt from Harlequin Junkie’s 5-star Top Pick review, and if you’d like to read the article in its entirety, I’ll include the link below.
Thank you, HJ! I’m honored.
SO MUCH EXCITEMENT!!!

See you there!
I was challenged by a few writer friends to post seven lines from my latest WIP (Work in Progress). Thought I’d share it here, too!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a round of What I’m Reading Wednesday, so I thought I would let you know what books I’ve had my nose in lately.
First up, Shannon Richard’s Undeniable
Can I even tell you how much I love Jax and Grace? Of course I can. And so I shall. Jax’s dark past makes him a tad grouchy and unapproachable. Save for a few very close guy friends, he really doesn’t have anyone. Except for the woman he’s been head over heels in love with silently for years. Grace King. What’s more, is that Grace has been in love with Jax just as long, or longer. When these two get together, sparks fly! I absolutely loved this book. Shannon is published with Grand Central as well, and Undeniable’s release date to paperback is the same day as The Millionaire Affair. Kismet! Undeniable available on e-book as we speak, and in paperback 6/24/14.
Next, I read Maisey Yates’s Avenge Me
Oh, where do I start with Austin Treffen? Born into a world of privilege, you would think a guy like Austin has it all. But when he finds out his father is a monster, he has revenge on his mind. But not just revenge… because a woman by the name of Katy Michaels unlocks his deepest desires. Desires she happens to share. This book is a dark, delicious, emotional tangle. A story of two people who don’t know how to love. But when they do–when Austin finally relaxes and Katy finally opens up, the payoff is huge! Avenge Me his book one in a series of three coming out this summer. You can buy Avenge Me now.
Right now, I am in the middle of Jeannie Moon’s The Wedding Secret
Kevin Rossi. Baseball player. Bears a resemblance to my
Need I say more? Kevin has been in love with Harper since the two of them sneaked down to the wine cellar to make love at Kevin’s sister’s wedding last year. She’s ignored him for months, but she can’t keep quiet any longer. Why? Because Kevin is a father and doesn’t know it…yet. Jeannie writes with heart, heat, and a whole lot of feisty, family fun. A cute, giggly, bouncing baby girl doesn’t hurt matters. I’m halfway through and loving it! The ice cream scene. YUM. The Wedding Secret is available wherever e-books are sold.
Your turn! Whatcha reading?
I am SO excited to be part of a blog hop! I was pinged by my good friend (and very talented contemporary romance author) Jeannie Moon, whose new debut The Wedding Secret recently became a Barnes & Noble top 100! She’d like me to answer three questions for you, and I adore her, so I agreed. Are you ready? HERE GOES!
1.) What am I working on/writing?
But what will you do until January??!! (GASP!!!) Well, good news! The Millionaire Affair comes out June 24.
2.) How does my work/writing differ from others in its genre?
With any Jessica Lemmon book, you can expect a twist on familiar tropes. In my debut novel Tempting the Billionaire, you get the story about a boss and his assistant, but it’s a fresh, new take and may not be the billionaire you were expecting. I like to surprise my readers! You can expect to be entertained, laugh, and hopefully fan your face a little… Or a lot!
3.) How does my writing process work?
Oh boy, if you figure that out will you be sure and let me know?
Okay, seriously, I will try to answer that question. I am a pantser at heart. That means I like to write by the seat of my pants. Often, I don’t know what’s going to happen next, and I let my characters drive the story. After that I edit… And I edit… And I edit…
Who’s on first…and second?
LOVING this review from Bibliophilic Madness for The Millionaire Affair. Here’s a short quote, but really, you must check out the rest for yourself.
Thank you, Biblio! I’m so glad you loved the book.
