New Release News: Jack and Jill, Vol. 1 by Jennifer M. Eaton
Today’s release news comes to us from one of the fantastic authors in my favorite writing circle, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pens, Jennifer M. Eaton.
Let’s have a look at her most recent release with Still Moments Publishing.
Jill stumbles back into the dating world after twelve years of motherhood. But things have changed a lot since the last time she dated. Jack and Jill stories follow the challenges of a woman holding on to traditional values in a world that has evolved without her. Now that she has found the man of her dreams, will Jill be able to hold on to him without compromising what she believes in?
Volume One follows Jack and Jill on their journey from friendship to love over Christmas and New Years in two heartwarming stories.
Connect the Dots: Jill writes her most intimate Christmas wish to God—and throws it away for its ridiculousness—but Christmas wishes have a way of coming true, even when you don’t know what you’ve wished for.
A Test of Faith: One day after her Christmas wish comes true, Jill faces a wrenching choice that tests her deepest beliefs. Will love prevail over conviction, or is happiness nothing more than a fairytale?
A Test of Faith, Excerpt:
His hands slipped around my waist, pulling me closer. Tingles of excitement rippled through my body before a wave of uncertainty broke them. Am I ready for this? Doesn’t he deserve more than being saddled down with a divorcee and her kid?
“I meant everything I said this morning, Jilly-Jill. I’ve been crazy about you for years.”
Trembling, I allowed my gaze to take in the warmth of his eyes. “Why didn’t you ever say anything?”
He released his hold on my waist and stepped back. “Well, you were married for one thing, and you guys seemed great together.” He ran his fingers through his thick brown hair. “I felt so damn guilty for being happy when you and Bill started to fight.”
I flinched. The sound of my ex-husband’s name forced bile into my throat. “That part of my life is behind me. I don’t want to think about it anymore.”
Jack leaned down and kissed my cheek. “I know. I’m sorry I bought it up.”
He held me close, and I relished the comfort of his embrace. Gentle fingers massaged my neck, releasing the tension that grabbed hold the second I’d heard Bill’s name. I allowed myself the luxury, for one sinful moment, to think maybe I’d done something to deserve this, to deserve him.
Jack smiled and his warm lips stroked my forehead. “So, am I allowed to tell everyone I got a girlfriend for Christmas?”
I ran my fingers down his cheek, my nails scratching against a day’s worth of stubble. “I don’t think you officially asked me out yet, Mr. Acres.”
The left side of his mouth inched up into a smile before the right side. Gosh I loved that little quirk about him.
“Ya gonna get all technical on me now?”
Clenched teeth did little to hold back my smile. “Sorry. A girl likes to be romanced.” With more than a box of candy you bought online at the last minute. I smiled at my inner sarcasm, wondering what it would be like to be given an expensive box of chocolate, to be swept off my feet, treated like a princess, and wooed as if I were something special.
“Okay. If it’s romance you want, it’s romance you’ll get. How about dinner the day after tomorrow?”
I let the smile burst free. “Sounds great. And maybe if it works out, we can get together for New Year’s?”
Jack tilted his head. A sarcastic smugness settled across his features. “You want to go out for New Year’s? You never go out for New Year’s.”
“No one’s ever asked.”
Strong fingers twirled in my hair and drew me closer. He placed a tender kiss on each of my eyelids. “Jilly-Jill, if I have my way, you’ll never be alone for New Year’s again.”
