Today I have Jennifer Jakes on the blog today hanging out. Below you will find an interview and an excerpt to her newest book Twice In a Lifetime.
1. Tell us a little about yourself. I’m married to my very own hero.
We live on fifteen acres along with two beautiful daughters, three spoiled cats, three hyper dogs and one fat rabbit.
During the summer we do Civil War re-enacting – it’s a great research tool, not to mention I have continued appreciation for my microwave and hot water heater.
2. What genre do you write?
Historical – mostly western but my latest is a pirate novella
3. Please tell us about your latest release TWICE IN A LIFETIME and how you came up with the idea.
*** No-nonsense stuntwoman Isabella Douglas will do anything to stop an unwanted divorce and reclaim the happy life she had, even allow her old friend to concoct a magical spell to turn back time. But when the spell goes awry, Izzy finds herself trapped aboard a 1768 Caribbean pirate ship with a captain who’s a dead ringer for her sexy as sin husband, Ian. Convinced he’s playing a cruel joke, she’s furious – until she realizes he doesn’t know her or believe they’re married.
Captain Ian Douglas does not have time to deal with an insane woman who claims to be his wife; he has to save his kidnapped sister. But as Izzy haunts his dreams and fills him with erotic memories he can’t explain, he’s forced to admit he feels more than lust.
Trapped in a vicious cycle of past mirroring present, Izzy knows they only have days to find Ian’s sister and prevent disaster from striking a second time. If she doesn’t, their marriage will be destroyed again – along with the man she loves. ***
This was just one of those ideas that wouldn’t let go of me. I had this image of a kick-butt heroine suddenly dropped onto a 1700s pirate ship. So I had to figure out the who and why……and all the little details.
4. Is it part of a series? No
5. A must have snack while you write.
Depends on the day. And the last time I went grocery shopping! LOL
6. A fact that someone might not know about you.
I know how to drive a dump truck!
7. Advice to writers who have yet to be published.
Study the craft; write the best story you can; never give up!
8. Is there a genre you haven’t written yet that you want to?
Well…..I’m sure I’ll stay in the historical genre but I have several ideas for different sub-genres of historical.
9. Have you written a character that most resembles you?
It would be Izzy from TWICE IN A LIFETIME
10. What type of hero do you enjoy writing about?
Alpha – emotionally wounded
11. What are you currently reading?
I just finished A BEAUTIFUL CAGE by Alyson Rueben. It’s fantastic!
12. What are you currently working on?
A new western novel, ALASKAN HEAT, set during the 1898 gold rush

EXCERPT: TWICE IN A LIFETIME
Her fingers threaded in his thick hair as she traced his mouth with the tip of her tongue. “Kiss me.”
He hesitated, then groaned and covered her lips in a breath stealing kiss. Hot, wet, silky. Her nipples hardened, ached for his touch, the tug of his fingers, the pull of his mouth.
“Touch me.” She pressed a kiss to his throat, then licked his collarbone. “I need your hands on me.”
He grunted and slid his hands down her back. Rough palms gripped her cheeks, grinding her against his erection. His gaze burned through her as he moved his thigh between her legs.
“Yes. Please.” She tilted her hips, rubbing, needing release more than air. “Oh, God, yes.” Desire roared through her, the ache building. Building. The orgasm so . . .damned. . .close.
A sharp knock sounded at the door. “Captain? The men are ready to go ashore.”
Ian pulled back and swallowed hard, his expression hungry, his heart thumping against her breast.
“Yes. Yes, I’ll be right there.” His heavy lidded gaze skimmed her body. Possessive. Aroused. Regretful as he set her aside.
Her mind crawled to process what was happening while her body was doused with disappointment. “You’re still going?”
He raked through his hair, then nodded. “We need provisions before sailing for Jamaica. I’ll only be a few hours.” He stepped to the door, but turned and pinned her with a hard stare. “But when I return . . .”
“Yes?” Her heart thumped in anticipation of some explicit description of what he would do to her. Oh, but his tongue was naughty in all the right ways.
“. . . I expect an explanation.”
Izzy drooped against the door, her thoughts racing even though her legs collapsed. This was going to be the shortest second chance in history.
