Now Available at a Bookstore Near You

Roll Call!  Ten novels, a novella, and several short stories…all available in ebook at Amazon.com ~ My author page is here:  http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B0044DJ9TM

And the exciting news is that now, two of my novels are available by request at a bookstore near you. I’m speaking with my two local stores about carrying them on the shelves, but there are millions of books available out there, so the traditional brick and mortar stores can’t carry them all. Just ask for one of these two titles, and they’ll be able to order it for you.

They’re also available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books a Million, and wherever paperbacks are sold.

Friday Freebits…Blame it on the Sun by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebitsWelcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you!

First, the blurb:

Blame it on the Sun
The Blame Ga
me, Book Three

Dave Naughton’s laid-back attitude has cost him two sports writing jobs. Fear of commitment and uncertainty may cost him a whole lot more where his personal life is concerned. He’s summoned home to face his father, the owner of the family business and the one man he really doesn’t want to disappoint. Before the showdown gets underway, Steve Naughton collapses and is taken to the hospital with a serious and frightening ailment.

Carys Connelly knows what she wants and goes after it. When the pretty nurse decides she wants Dave, he’s not sure what to think. Taking matters into her own hands, she wrangles a job as his father’s home health nurse to be closer to Dave. Will she have to whack him over the head before he realizes she might be the best thing that’s ever happened to him?

“Kiss me until I can’t see straight. If we’re tired tomorrow, we’ll blame it on the sun.”

“Jamie Hill has become my favorite author. She always puts in a twist that you don’t see coming. Her books are entertaining to read.” ~ Kay, Amazon

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

Catlin gathered her things and Dave led her out. They were halfway down on the elevator when her eyes filled with tears.

“Come’ere.” Dave pulled her into his arms. “He’s going to be fine. You know he’s just nervous and stressed about all this.”

“I know. But I’ve never seen him this way before. He’s always been the strong one.”

“And he will be again. He just needs to lean on you for a little while. You’re strong, too, Catlin. You were amazing when Chris had his accident. No one knew how you maintained the way you did.”

“That’s because I had your father.”

“And now he has you. Isn’t it great how that works?”

Friday Freebits…Blame it on the Moon by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

 

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you!

First, the blurb:

Dana Naughton rHill-BlameItOnTheMoon2-200x300eturns home after college to teach at the local elementary school. She’s not aware of the struggles her family is going through, but is glad to help however she can. She’s also surprised to learn that Clint Stewart, her old high school sweetheart, is now working for her father.

They immediately hit it off, and pick up where thing left off years ago. But Clint’s a hot-blooded man, and Dana’s a woman who’s decided to practice abstinence before marriage. If they can get over that hurdle, they realize they can get through anything. Until tragedy strikes, and they’re forced to face every family’s worst nightmare. “If you need to assign blame, you might as well blame it on the moon.”

“Ms. Hill has the gift of knowing what the reader wants and then hitting you with an ending you certainly don’t expect. Two thumbs up!” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

“I have always thoroughly enjoyed Jamie Hill’s writings and I love the Midwest setting.” ~ Maggie, Amazon
—————————

And now the six paragraphs:

Dana paced on the other side of the room. Nothing upset her more than seeing her father cry.

It’d happened very few times. When she was little, she remembered tears when his mother died. The only other tears she could recall involved the thought of losing Catlin, in one way or another.

She watched them for a moment, trying to remember if she’d ever seen him cry over Barbara. Dana couldn’t think of one instance. She loved her mother, but Catlin was her father’s soul mate.

The doctor said, “The nurse brought you some sandwiches, try to eat.” He looked at Steve. “She hasn’t had anything but Dr. Pepper all day. You’ve got to keep your strength up if you want to be at your best for your son.”

Catlin stood. “I can’t eat. I am sick, physically sick. If I eat I’ll throw up.”

“Try to sip some milk, maybe. It’ll at least be something in your stomach.”

5 Stars for Remember Me? by Kelly Janicello

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LH76XE2Amazon deletes my reviews (because I work for a publishing company I must be biased, I suppose!) Since I can’t leave reviews there, I like to offer reviews on my blog when I find a book I really want to shout about. The latest is Remember Me? by Kelly Janicello

This is Kelly’s debut novel and it’s absolutely amazing. Romantic suspense just the way I like it, characters with a sense of humor, with some very hot romance thrown in. The heat level in this one is very similar to my A Cop in the Family Series, a little steamier than mainstream, which I enjoy.

Ryli Madigan is a rookie cop who is thrust into the big leagues by circumstances. She’s smarter than she gives herself credit for, possibly because she has some demons she’s battling.

Brody McKenna is my kind of action hero, sexy, protective, and too damn funny. He knows what he should do, but it’s not always what he wants to do. Fighting a few demons himself, it’s only when the two join forces that either one of them can figure things out.

I highly recommend Remember Me? and suggest you allow a few hours to read because once you start, you won’t want to put it down.

Remember Me? by Kelly Janicello is available now at Amazon, coming soon to a bookstore near you!

——————————————

Remember Me? by Kelly Janicello

As a child, Ryli Madigan witnessed a heinous murder burying it deep in her mind. Years later as a rookie police officer she takes down an armed suspect in a convenience store and finds herself assigned to the Detective’s Division. She must work with the veteran detective shot during the robbery she thwarted. Ryli clashes with Brody McKenna, who pursues her on a more personal level despite his deep-seated mistrust of women.

While tracking a serial killer Ryli is plagued by haunting nightmares. The stakes grow higher as she and Brody uncover a cold case involving her family concealed by one of their own. Brody suspects her terrifying dreams are really flashbacks. Their personal attraction
raises the stakes in their pursuit of the man responsible for a murderous spree. Will Ryli remember her past before it’s too late?

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you!

 

Blame Hill-BlameItOnTheStars3-200x300it on the Stars
The Blame Game, Book One
by Jamie Hill

First, the blurb:
Teacher Catlin McCall has second thoughts about dating the father of a student, but listening to his sweet talk one night under the stars, she finds him hard to resist. They stumble into an impetuous, passionate relationship which leaves them breathless and his family less than thrilled. A not-quite-ex-wife who decides she wants her man back, combined with a pair of manipulative teenagers, make for more problems than either of them are prepared to deal with.

Steve Naughton has no idea when he invites Catlin’s brother to join them for dinner that his fiancée has family issues of her own. Like the old adage, no good deed goes unpunished, and Steve’s surprise backfires when the truth comes to light.

“You feel like your life got thrown up in the air, and it’s landing as a different sort of life? Yeah, me too.” Blame it on the stars.

“This book is an awesome read. Jamie has you hooked from the start! Every time I thought I knew what was gonna happen she brought in something new. I can’t wait for the next book. This book needs read by everyone!” ~ 5 Stars, Lisa, Amazon Verified Purchase

“I have always thoroughly enjoyed Jamie Hill’s writings and this was no exception. This story feels believable about a new romance, but life has a way of throwing the couple a curve ball I did not see coming! It is a fast read, and I love the Midwest setting. I recommend this book.” ~ 5 Stars, Maggie, Amazon Verified Purchase

“She had me from the beginning and I didn’t want to stop reading until I finished it! Just when I was thinking “happily ever after” for the main characters, she brought in old relationships for them to deal with. Can’t wait to read the next book!” 5 Stars, CMT, Amazon Verified Purchase

—————————————————-

And now, the six paragraphs:

His eyes flashed just before he pulled her into his arms and kissed her.

Catlin pounded his chest with her fists a couple times, without much force behind the movement. She quickly gave in and dropped the pretense of putting up a fight. Her arms encircled his neck and she kissed him hungrily.

After a solid minute, he reluctantly pulled away. “I want you to tell me who the father of your baby is,” he whispered.

“Nick.”

“Why don’t I believe you?”

“Because you think I’m a liar.” She kissed him passionately one last time. “God, I’ve missed that.” She looked into his eyes, then dragged herself away. In the distance they could hear the school bell ringing.

Friday Freebits…Pieces of the Past by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! This week, six from my latest release which has just gone to print!

First, the blurb:

 

Hill-PiecesOfThePast-400x600.jpgPieces of the Past
Witness Security

The past is closing in on Christine Scott. Uprooted from her pleasant life in Chicago, she and her two children are thrust into the Witness Security Program when the mistakes of her husband catch up with him. He lands in prison, while she and the kids are transplanted to a quiet Kansas town. Christine does her best to keep life normal for her active ten-year-old son and persistently moody seventeen-year old daughter. But when they start receiving gifts from an anonymous sender, reminders of their old life, it becomes obvious that someone has found them.

Doug Jackson’s been in service with the US Marshal’s office for fifteen years. He hasn’t lost a witness yet, and doesn’t intend to start with Christine or her family. If he can get them to cooperate, his job might be easier. Unfortunately, no one seems concerned about making Doug’s life easy. Not the man in the white sedan who eludes him, nor the pretty Christine, thoughts of whom he can’t seem to shake. Their lives depend on Doug keeping his head in the game, and he’s determined to do just that.

“Ms. Hill is one of my favorite authors and I’m reminded of that each time I read one of her books. She has a talent for taking the reader on a journey with unforgettable characters while developing a plot line that is highly entertaining.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

“Jamie Hill tells a wonderful story that sucks you in from the very first page.” ~ Alisha, Two Lips Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

“So what did little Christine White want to be when she grew up? Somebody’s wife and mother? Or did you have grander plans?”

“Well, being a mother is about as grand as it gets. But I started college to be an accountant. That’s where I met Larry. I got pregnant and dropped out, while he went on to get certified. So I guess I had grander plans, but they got sidetracked. And I decided I liked the whole ‘wife and mother’ business. Is that so wrong?”

“It’s not wrong at all. I’m sorry you got sidetracked, though.”

She looked at him. “I’m not. It brought me to where I am today.”

Doug chuckled. “In a safe house, on the run from a Columbian drug cartel?”

Swatting his chest, she shook her head. “I wasn’t thinking of the big picture. I was thinking more along the lines of sitting here on the sofa with you.”

Friday Freebits…Witness Security 2: Time to Kill by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebitsWelcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! This week we’ll take a sneak peek into my current work in progress, book 2 of my Witness Security series, Time to Kill.

Hill-TimeToKill-200x300I have a cover but no blurb yet. The heroine, US Marshal Jordan Burke, is thrown for a loop when her partner Doug Jackson takes paternity leave and the boss selects a former marshal to fill in–someone Jordan is intimately familiar with. Nick Pierce is as handsome and arrogant as ever. The idea of working with him for the next six weeks is infuriating as hell, or at least that what Jordan says.

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

 

“Don’t call me ‘Jo’,” she snapped. “Nobody calls me that. And as for you filling in here? It’s the flipping worst idea I’ve heard since bacon-flavored Twinkies. The chief’s going to get an earful about this. If I was you, I wouldn’t unpack my bags.” She brushed past him, their arms touching.

Spinning around, Nick clutched her bicep. “Have it your way, Jordan. But as far as my being here—”

Her eyes blazed as she jerked away. “If I had it my way, you wouldn’t have gone to St. Louis, you asshole. You’d be someplace a lot warmer.”

He tried not to smile, but seeing the old spark in her come to life made that damn near impossible. “Oh yeah? Where would I be, Dallas?”

“Go to hell, Nick.” Jordan stomped from the room.

Laughing, he called after her, “I didn’t bring the right clothes for that trip!”

Friday Freebits…Impulsive (High Maintenance) by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! Continuing on with my short story collection Impulsive. This week, six paragraphs from the final story, High Maintenance.

First, the blurb:

 

Impulsive

(Collection of short stories)

The first glimpse of a person, someone so breathtaking it’s almost stunning. That heart-stopping moment when gazes lock across a crowded room. Finding the courage to speak over the noisy thrumming of a heartbeat. Feelings so intense, they tend to make one’s actions a bit impulsive. Four stories of spicy, sweet, sassy romance. Three Wishes, All That Jazz, Playing With Destiny and High Maintenance.

Three Wishes: While visiting Madame Zena’s Mystical Shoppe, Macy Green discovers a dusty old bottle she never imagines could actually be magical. (paranormal romance)

All That Jazz: Devon Knight has a secret. He’s been watching his neighbor, beautiful Gia Malone, through their apartment windows, every day while he practices his trumpet. (sweet romance)

Playing With Destiny: When beautiful witch Calista Canyon discovers the man of her dreams living right next door, she tries everything she can think of, short of magic, to get him to notice her. (paranormal romance)

High Maintenance: Deidre North is enjoying a family ski vacation after Christmas, when an accident sidelines her from the slopes with a cast on her leg. (sweet romance)

“I loved the stories. Each of them was very different, which was something that I enjoyed. My two favorites have to be Playing with Destiny and High Maintenance. And don’t you just love the cover? I look forward to reading more of Ms. Hill’s work very soon. Impulsive is a great book to have with you while you’re on the go or only have a few minutes to relax. Just enough time to get lost in a short story and still be done in time for dinner.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

He had a gorgeous mouth. When it curved upward, her heart melted. She watched him move about the lobby, sweeping tidbits here and there, before he finally set the broom down. He straightened some magazines on another table, leaning down to pick up an insert card that had fallen out. “I hate these things.”

“Me too,” she murmured, staring at the perfect view of his ass in tight denim jeans. She thought about knocking a card from one of her magazines, just so he’d have to bend over again.

He moved in front of her, his crotch at her eye level. Flustered, she glanced up quickly and said, “I’m not much of a magazine reader myself.”

“Really?” He eyed the stack on the table next to her.

“My sister,” she explained. “Everyone wanted to do something when I broke my leg. She thought she was being helpful.”

“It was all the talk around here. We hate it when guests and trees collide.”

Friday Freebits…Impulsive (Playing With Destiny) by Jamie Hill…#frifreebits

fridayfreebits

Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you! Continuing on with my short story collection Impulsive. This week, six paragraphs from the third story, Playing With Destiny.

First, the blurb:

Impulsive

(Collection of short stories)

The first glimpse of a person, someone so breathtaking it’s almost stunning. That heart-stopping moment when gazes lock across a crowded room. Finding the courage to speak over the noisy thrumming of a heartbeat. Feelings so intense, they tend to make one’s actions a bit impulsive. Four stories of spicy, sweet, sassy romance.

Just enough time to get lost in a short story and still be done in time for dinner.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

————————————

And now the six paragraphs:

The man was apparently as dense as the fog that swirled over the river when the sun went down. Calista Canyon had been his neighbor for over a year, not that he’d noticed. To be fair, she’d only recently become aware of him…in that way. Still, he didn’t seem to know she existed.

She stared through the window of her apartment directly into a window of his. The houses were built so close together, she could read the diploma hanging on his living room wall. Ryan Lenhart, Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology, Oklahoma State University. Calista hadn’t gone to college and had never heard of Kinesiology, but after some investigating, discovered it dealt with exercise. After a little more digging, she learned Ryan was a personal fitness trainer.

One look at his toned body verified that piece of information. Calista hadn’t really looked before, nor had she given him much thought or attention in the past. Occasionally, she crossed paths with him as they came or went. Sometimes they met in the shared parking lot behind their houses. She drove a black Jeep and noticed he drove a red one. When the weather turned warm, he rode a bicycle, and continued that right through the mild Oklahoma autumn.

Fall was Calista’s favorite time of year. Long, scorching summer days shortened and turned cooler. Nights grew crisp and chilly. She left her windows open most of the time, and evidently, her neighbor did, too.

That’s what caught her attention the first time she noticed Ryan. Really noticed him. She heard noises outside and looked up from the book she was reading. Her apartment was on the third floor of an old house converted to rentals, so it was unusual to hear voices, but she knew she heard something. She walked around to the various windows until she hit upon the source of the noise. Her neighbor, whose living room faced hers, was entertaining.

That was the polite word for what he and his guest were doing. Rutting like wild animals also came to mind. Man, they’re really going at it. She shouldn’t watch, but it was like seeing a train wreck. She couldn’t help herself. Clutching the windowsill, Calista bit her lip.
