March 28, 2012
Anxious for a change and wanting to learn more about her late mother and where she came from, Thalia Wells accepts a job in the small town of Parrish. As she settles into her new life, she begins to notice unsettling oddities about her new home.
Gray is used to secrets. Being a witch and living in a town of people with magical abilities means living with secrets. But keeping Thalia in the dark kills him especially when it brings her pain.
Thalia doesn't believe in magic and had given up on happily ever after, but can she find both with Gray?

Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all “fangirl?”
Jessica: Definitely. I love Shelly Laurenston and have been lucky enough to meet her. I’ve actually pimped her books out at the bookstore to lucky readers hanging in the romance section (LOL) and her books are an autobuy for me. The other author for me would be Nora Roberts/JD Robb. Love her stuff and am always waiting for the next one. I’d probably make a complete fool of myself if I met her. :)
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Jessica: I actually have plans to co-write a book with Gwendolyn Cease. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather write with—she makes me laugh, we look at things the same way, and I can’t wait to get started on it with her when we both finish some individual projects we are working on.
Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
Jessica: Seeing friends I don’t get to see in person very often and meeting new readers. And I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans, so I’m definitely looking forward to being there and exploring.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Jessica: Only one book? No! Okay, um, I guess I would have to say Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. All-time favorite book.
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)
Jessica: Elizabeth and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. Not surprising, right? LOL I can’t get enough—re-read the book, read sequels, watch any and every film adaptation because their love story rocks. :)
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
Jessica: Hands down, Seth from my Into the Shadows series. He is a young vampire (well, young by their standards) who was supposed to be a “walk on” character, but managed to grow into more and ingrain himself into the core group of the series. Moreover, he came to life in my head. I have big plans for him.
Ali: If your friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
Jessica: (Dang, that’s a hard one!) Um… fun. I want to be the fun one! :)
*Favorite color – Green
*Favorite food – Pizza
*Boots or heels - Boots
*eReader or Print - eReader

*Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom – Anywhere. :) Does that make me easy? Honestly though, with the right person, “where” doesn’t really matter much, in my opinion. Although, as sexy as outdoor lovin’ sounds, in Minnesota (or the anywhere in the Midwest, I guess), mosquitos take the allure out of it all. LOL
