Interview with Author Jessica Lemmon and Giveaway

Jessica Lemmon has always been a dreamer. At some point, she decided head-in-the-clouds thinking was childish, went out, and got herself a job . . . and then she got another one because that one was lousy. And when that one stopped being fulfilling, she went out and got another . . . and another. Soon it became apparent she'd only be truly happy doing what she loved. And since "eating potato chips" isn't a viable career, she opted to become a writer. With fire in her heart, she dusted off a book she'd started years prior, finished it, and submitted it. It may have been the worst book ever, but it didn't stop her from writing another one. Now she has several books finished, several more started, and even more marinating in her brain (which currently resides in the clouds, thankyouverymuch), and she couldn't be happier. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want. (While eating potato chips.)

A la Twitter style, please describe your book in 140 characters or less.
Bespectacled millionaire Landon Downey needs a nanny. Kimber Reynolds answers the call. Post-it note sex list, potato chips, true love.

What types of scenes are your most favorite to write?
The first kiss scene between the hero and heroine, and the banter between the guys. My dudes like to give each other a lot of crap (out of love, of course!). That's fun to write.

If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?
Stephen King, Madonna, Shel Silverstein

What are you favorite types of stories to read?
My favorite trope is reunited lovers. It can be enemies to lovers, friends or lovers, anything that involves the hero and heroine knowing each other before. I like that familiarity, and the whole idea of love lost. I explore this a little bit in TMA, and extensively in book 2 in my series Hard to Handle.

Last question, are you working on anything right now?
I am! My next series, due out in 2015 is called Second Chance. It starts with Landon Downey’s younger brother, Evan in Bringing Home the Bad Boy. Right now, I'm working on the second book in that series about Evan’s friend, Donovan who inherits a mansion and must come home to deal with his dark past. This series is emotional, sexy, and humorous, similar to my other books. I'm just moving from suits to leather jackets for a bit. ;-)

Okay, romance lovers! Do you prefer your heroes suited or in jeans?


Millionaire ad executive Landon Downey has a policy: no romantic relationships allowed. So when he’s saddled with his six-year-old nephew for a week, he doesn’t think twice about asking Kimber Reynolds to act as live-in nanny. What he doesn’t expect is the undeniable attraction to the woman he hasn’t seen since they were kids. And not only does she like him back—she suggests they work their way down a list of extracurricular activities in the bedroom. How can he resist?

Kimber wants to prove once and for all that she can love ’em and leave ’em with the best of them. All she has to do is keep her sixteen-year crush on Landon out of the equation. No problem…until she realizes she may not be the only one whose heart has gotten completely tangled up in their no-strings agreement.
