Happy Memorial Day & New Releases!

It has been a whirlwind spring. I can’t believe Mother’s Day has already come and gone! I knew this year would be busy with my 8 year old’s First Communion and my 18 year old’s senior activities, along with all the other graduations happening for my friends and family.

But here we are, with prom last week and graduation on Saturday and I couldn’t be more proud of my crew–not because we’re perfect and do anything all that amazing–but because we are a family and we keep sticking together through ups and downs, thick and thin, and its a very real love, with muscle and heart.

I’ll have two books out very soon, the 3rd book in my Harlequin Presents Scandalous Copeland mini-series, and then the 2nd story late June in my historical Montana series.

Her Sinful Secret, Harlequin Presents
The secret she never told…
Heart racing, Logan cannot look away from tycoon Rowan Argyros as he declares her life is in danger. All she can think is that Rowan took her virginity, heartlessly rejected her after a night of reckless abandon…and is the father of her child. She must reveal the truth before she’s whisked away to Rowan’s castle for safety…
Isolated together, Logan finds herself at the mercy of Rowan’s unrelenting need to claim her— and their daughter! Logan has known no touch but his, and yearns to feel it again…but to do so, she must agree to meet him at the altar!


Married in Montana, Tule Publishing
Beautiful, spirited, Texas born Ellie Burnett needs a husband. Fast. Her father, rancher Archibald Burnett, is dying and she’s determined to marry to protect the ranch and preserve her father’s legacy in Montana’s rugged Paradise Valley. The trouble is, she wants to wear the boots in the family and the man she has in mind, Irishman Thomas Sheenan would never stand for that.
Independent and taciturn Thomas Sheenan isn’t looking for a wife, having spent far too much of his life taking care of others.  He’s come to Montana to carve out his own identity, and be his own man. The last thing he needs is a headstrong bride, but when Ellie approaches him with the offer of a lifetime, he can’t refuse.
Thomas didn’t anticipate falling for his new bride.  He moved to Montana to stake his claim…he never planned on losing his heart.


I also have a fun JP Memorial Day giveaway full of books, giftcards and lots of cool colorful summer swag for one lucky reader because new releases should be celebrated and readers need to know how important they are. I wouldn’t be here–17 years after my first sale–if it weren’t for you. For a chance to win, leave a comment below and tell me did you receive my newsletter this morning? Contest ends Wednesday with winner announced Thursday.

I wish you the happiest of Memorial Day weekends and you know how much I enjoy hearing from you. Please stay in touch!
All my love,


  1. Congratulations! So much to celebrate with your boys, family, and books.

    My youngest has a birthday, my middle is graduating, then my oldest has a birthday all in the next two weeks.

  2. Beautiful family pictures Jane, and I love the formal communion attire, so cute!

    I did receive your newsletter by email this morning before visiting your blog/website.

    Have a great long weekend, I am soooo looking forward to the end of the work week!

  3. I received your newsletter this morning. Your family is special and the photos wonderful. Enjoy your holiday weekend. We will be enjoying time with family and celebrating a birthday.

  4. Ah the joys of children growing up. It can be emotional for a Mom but also a very proud time. Congrats to the new graduate and on your baby’s communion. From the pics you’ve posted of his Dad, we all know who he looks just like. Wow.
    Congrats on your new books and to your kids.
    Happy Memorial Day!!!

  5. I received your Newsletter! What fun to see a glimpse into your beautiful children’s accomplishments and joy. Congratulations to all! 🙂

  6. But of COURSE I received your newsletter, Jane! Duh!
    While scrapbooking pics from when my kids were still kids, I realized we crammed a LOT of stuff into our days and weekends like you do. Today, though, with both now grown adults, we don’t do as much (too tired and/or poor). I guess we did things back then because your kids are only kids once, and we wanted to share their growing-up years with trips to the zoo, concerts, and friends/family homes each and every chance we got. DO enjoy them while you have them (as I know you already do).

  7. I loved the photos you posted in your newsletter that I got this morning. Already found your Presents in the store!

  8. You have had a lot of exciting events this spring. I enjoyed seeing the pictures. I did receive your newsletter. I have it going to two different emails just in case one messes up. It arrived in both this morning. Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Hi! I did receive your newsletter this morning! Congrats on the great stuff happening with your family. I will be watching the Indy 500 this weekend a family tradition and I get to head to visit my Indiana family next Wed.
