Thank you for joining me in welcoming…Jillian Hart!!
It is such a thrill to host Love Inspired author, Jillian Hart, today! The first book I read of Jill's was one of her McKaslin clan contemporaries, A Soldier for Keeps. I couldn't put it down and had to e-mail her and gush. To my surprise, she e-mailed me back! I always have one of her latest books on my to-be-read pile, and the last time I counted, she had close to fifty books published! Jill writes both contemporary and historical romance, and her new book, Wyoming Sweethearts, is available now. You cannot go wrong picking up one of her books. Trust me on this!
Let's get to it!
1. Beverage of choice?
Coffee first thing--decaf, with Coffeemate. That fuels my writing, if it's a work day, or my reading, if it's a weekend morning. In the afternoon, I love sparkling water. My favorite is Talking Rain's Pomegranate Lime. Yum.
2. Any pets?
Not currently. One day I will get another blond cocker spaniel. : )
3. Dream vacation?
A sunny Maui beach where I can do nothing but relax, watch the water and read, read, read.
4. What are you listening to right now?
The Band Perry.
5. What's for dinner?
If I'm on deadline and late on a book, it's mac and cheese. It's easy and it takes little effort to cook and clean up. If I've got time, I like to bake chicken, steam rice and vegetables. Or make a big pan of chicken enchiladas with a scoop of sour cream on top and a sprinkling of cilantro.
***Jillian, I am so with you on the coffee. Every morning, I anticipate my fresh brew swirling with cream. Sparkling water is lovely, too. We have La Croix around here, and I'm partial to the pink cans. Oh, and my parents had the sweetest black cocker spaniel. She passed on a few years ago, but we loved her. As for Maui, I can only say sign me up too! Water, reading, and maybe a pan of your chicken enchiladas sounds like the perfect getaway.
Thanks so much for being my guest today, Jill. Your encouragement means the world to me, and your books do too!
Where do lonely hearts go?
The chance to rescue abandoned horses has given Eloise Tipple the fresh start she needs. After losing her skating career and fiance, she returns home to Wild Horse, Wyoming to work at a beautiful inn and man the stables.
Sean Granger has also come home to nurse some emotional wounds and would like nothing more than to pursue life as a lone wolf. Both say they want nothing more than friendship.
But while saving homeless horses, can Sean and Eloise save each other and heal their wounds?
Jill grew up on her family's homestead in Washington State, where she raised cattle to pay for her college tuition, rode horses through the pristine foothills of the Cascade Mountain range and scribbled stories in her spare time. After earning an English degree from Whitman College (what better way to go through college than to constantly read books?), she traveled, worked in advertising, taught Sunday school and volunteered before becoming a writer. When she's not hard at work on her next story, Jill can be found chatting with a friend, stopping for a café mocha with a book in hand, and spending quiet evenings at home with her family.
So, August is here! Do you buy back-to-school supplies for yourself? (I'm guilty!)
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
