Fall in July

Posted at Jul 29, 2014 1:57 pm

You’re probably wondering if you read that right.

It’s usually Christmas in July, right? Well, here in the great state of Ohio, it was Christmas from October through April… at least the weather was Christmas-like. Now, though? Late July and 75 beautiful little degrees!

Jeans! I’m wearing jeans!


Beautiful has a name: TODAY

Fewer things make me happier than wearing jeans.

Wait, is it fewer? Or less? Lessor?


You may have also seen on my Facebook page that I have FINISHED the first draft of Bad Boy book 2, heretofore known as Rescuing the Bad Boy! While Donovan is in my editor’s capable (and grabby) hands, I’m working on Evan’s book. The copyedits! Can I get a Hallelujah? Copyedits are THE LAST PASS. This is it! Well, other than when they send proofs, but few changes can be made to proof pages. That’s the actual layout of the book, so you don’t want to monkey around too much with that.

In celebration of this most epic achievement as I continue to dig through edits, let’s all admire Evan’s cover.

Available January 2015

*le sigh*

I needed that.

What epic awesomeness have you all been up to? How’s the weather where you are? Talk to me!

 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.  ;)

Harlequin Junkie Top Pick!

Posted at Jun 27, 2014 8:53 pm in , , ,

TMA HJ Top PickI’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.

“With a lot of inner and romantic conflict, Jessica brings us a book you won’t want to miss in The Millionaire Affair! Her characters are strong and as fast as the relationship moves, it is believable. I really enjoyed all of the pieces of both Landon and Kimber and how Jessica managed to fit them together so well as their relationship grew. Kimber was easy to like with her nervous energy and hilarious chatter, especially when she’s around Landon. She doesn’t have a lot of confidence in herself in romantic relationships though, and at times it was frustrating that she was taking advice from people who had no business giving it! She wants to follow her heart, but is scared to. Landon had a terrible experience with his college girlfriend that has tainted every part of his future since then. He was a bit more of a puzzle, coming from a loving family with lots of examples of great relationships, he focuses on the one that was not great. While I can understand he went through a horrible experience, it was at times frustrating that he let it define every relationship he had since. So much so that when he does start feeling much more than he ever wanted to again, he just doesn’t know what to do! Jessica makes their romantic journey touching, realistic, and entertaining.

Click for full review.

Thank you, HJ! I’m honored.

Sneak Peek at Bad Boy #2…

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!

Books You Need to Buy Right Now

Posted at Jun 18, 2014 6:30 am in , , , , ,

 Hi gang!

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


Jax. Sexiest redheaded hero ever.

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


I’m not grousing. This is just my [sexy] face.


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

the wedding secretimage

Kevin Rossi. Baseball player. Bears a resemblance to my one other true love, Henry Cavill.

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?
