Tattoo artist Keelie Jessup can handle that someone else has claimed the man of her dreams. She’s just not pleased with her remaining options…
Keelie doesn’t believe in the “perfect man.” But the men who are worth the trouble are usually taken—like her business partner Zach Barnes. After a string of bad luck and the lost chance with Zach, Keelie decides that maybe flying solo—and living with suppressed desires—is the key to happiness.
As a photographer, Zane Barnes has an eye for the human form, and his eyes can’t get enough of Keelie’s curves. Unfortunately, Keelie is like most women—always fawning over his little brother, Zach. Zane is about ready to give up, but then a few stolen moments at his brother’s wedding have him thinking maybe there’s a chance there after all. Now he just has to prove that the perfect man does exist…for her.

If a reader has never read any of your books, what book would you recommend they start with and why?
Wrecked or Razed are great places to start if you like contemporary romance. If you’re into urban fantasy, then Blade Song, written by alter ego, J.C. Daniels. Why…? They were fun to write and the characters are some of my favorites.
What kind of research did you do to get inside the minds of your characters?
I don’t research to get inside their heads. I feel more like a narrator than anything else—the characters are often just waiting for me to find them and then they tell me their story—they get in my head more than anything else.
Where did you get the inspiration to write this series?
There’s a book…Wreck this Journal. I saw that and the idea kind of took off from there.
How much of yourself and your real-life experiences do you put into your books?
Very little. My sarcasm, my sense of humor work their way into the books, but I’m not writing to share my life story. I’m writing to share the stories of my characters.
Do you come up with the titles first, or wait until after the story is finished?
That just depends on the book!
What book are you currently reading?
Nothing… I finished my current read over the weekend and I’m looking for the next one.
If you were a heroine in a romance novel, what would your ideal Prince Charming be like?
LOL… I’ve got a Prince Charming in real life, so I don’t need to speculate on that. He makes me laugh, he doesn’t put up with my bull and he’s a great father.
If you could switch lives with anyone for a day, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
Ummmm…nobody? I know how to handle my life and my problems—I don’t want to dive headfirst into the problems of anybody else…and we all have problems.
If someone were to write your biography, what would be its title?
She Talks Too Much (to people who aren’t real)
Which authors inspire you as a writer?
My favorite writers include Lynn Viehl, J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts and Nalini Singh.
