The Fall In Love Giveaway hop was organized by Reading Romances!
I hesitated writing this post because I have a strong aversion to marketing on holidays, but when I enrolled in this hop, I didn’t notice the date, so I suppose that’s my fault. But it’s the Fall in Love Giveaway Hop. How can falling in love be wrong?
So I’m writing about a man I fell in love with recently. Not my husband (shh… don’t tell). My husband and I have been together over 20 years, so that falling in love stage is long past. No, today I’m writing about the romance hero who stole my heart and won’t give it back, my Jack Wheeler, from Secret Storm.
I met Jack while writing my first romance novel, Tell Me You Want Me. He’s Austin’s best friend, his rock and his shelter. Jack is the kind of man you can run to when you need help, or run from when you’re on a football field. But he has a secret, stormy past. (See what I did there? ) Meh, sounds like a lot of romance heroes.
So what makes Jack special? Maybe Sara can explain it:
Why him? Why not Austin or any of the other guys she’d dated before Jack? Why not someone she might date after him? A determined smile curled her lips as the answer came to her. She wanted Jack because she was just as stubborn as he was.
She could’ve tried harder with David. He’d made her feel good—until he cheated—but even before that, she’d craved a man who challenged her, a man who made her feel strong when things got out of control and life got stormy, a man who put his needs before hers whether she wanted him to or not.
She laughed. “Oh, Jack, you have no idea what you’ve gotten yourself in to.”
I’ve never been happier with my life since I became a full-time writer, and yet every time I sniff (allergies) or if I frown while contemplating my next story, my husband never fails to notice. “Are you okay? Are you crying?”
“I’m fine. It’s just a sniff.” And I roll my eyes.
He leaves his dirty socks on the floor, he doesn’t know where the trash can is, and he tells me ‘we’ need to work harder at potty training Energizer Toddler when he’s never changed a dirty diaper. My husband challenges me every. single. day. But we’re celebrating our 21st anniversary next month. Why?
Because we’re both too damn stubborn to give up. He takes care of me whether I need it or not, he encourages my dreams, and he’s the best daddy our little girl could ever have. Falling in love is easy. Staying in love takes work.
Jack has loved Sara since the moment they met, but their relationship takes hard work. They’re both too stubborn to give up and that’s why they’ll stay in love.
Please take a moment to check out the giveaway. I’m happy to introduce Jack to a new reader because once he captures your heart, he’ll never let go.
Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so grateful to all the readers who have taken a chance on one of my books. Blessings to you all.
