Loving Mick is the first novella in the New Years Eve Club series from Boroughs Publishing Group.
Loving Mick Jill Limber
Betrayed and abandoned by a cheating husband, Jessie wants nothing more than a fling with the handsome cop. Mick thinks Jessie's plan is a fine idea, until he falls in love and wants forever. Will Mick be able to convince Jessie to play for keeps?
Jessie had never been bold when it came to men, but last night, after Mick had kissed her, she’d made a firm decision. Mick was her chosen target. Just the thought of pursuing an affair with him made her feel like a new woman. A new sexy, free woman.
Her BFF Heather had been so right. She needed a fling to jump start her single life. Divorce sex had been Heather's term. And after Mick, who knew? Maybe she’d find another guy and do it again. Maybe she’d become a serial--what? Flinger? Was that even a word? She grinned. It was now.
Jill has been writing for years. While creating stories she is kept company by three dogs, and occasionally a husband who has to be convinced that a trip to Home Depot is not the highlight of her day, nor does she want to go deep sea fishing. As a child she got in trouble for her tall tales. Now she gets paid for them.
Jillian: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
Jill: Cinderella, hand down. I love the rags to riches aspect of that particular fairy tale, although Prince Charming needs some work. The poor guy doesn’t even have a name, just a title. But maybe that is part of his appeal. I can make him anyone I want him to be.
Jillian: What’s your favorite cartoon character?
Jill: Roadrunner. He just beep-beeps his way past Wiley Coyote every time, no matter how much work Wiley puts into his plan. Roadrunner always wins, and even though I know what’s going to happen, it still makes me laugh every time.
Jillian: What was the first story you remember writing?
Jill: I was about eight and was ‘in detention’ in my bedroom on a beautiful summer afternoon for an infraction I don’t even recall now. The story was about a wicked, very ugly step-mother who locked a beautiful princess away in a tower bedroom to keep her from having any fun. Looking back, the inspiration was pretty clear.
Jillian: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
Jill: It’s an old one. High Road to China with Tom Selleck and Bess Armstrong. He is a down-on-his-luck pilot with an attitude and a drinking problem, and she is a snooty heiress searching over two continents for her father. I don’t think it made much at the box office, but it was pure romance and adventure from start to finish. The conflict between the two characters was high for the entire film as they moved toward each other, both becoming better people. Set in the early twenties, just after WWI, the costumes were amazing, and the story had suspense, humor and action.
Jillian: What’s something you’d like to tell your fans?
Jill: Thank you. I appreciate every one of them. Writing is my creative outlet and it is so gratifying to know I can share my work with my fans. I treasure every person who has ever told me they like what I write.
Jillian: What’s the first thing you do when you finish writing a book?
Jill: I always think of the opening scene in Romancing the Stone, when Joan Wilder—Kathleen Turner—finishes her book and types ‘The End’. As she cries over the manuscript she exclaims how good it is. I never feel that way—but I have the fantasy that some day I will.
Jillian: What do you do to unwind and relax?
Jill: I cook. I especially like to bake, but any cooking works for me. I’ve always loved to create in the kitchen. Even the grocery shopping and cleaning up relax me. Weird way to lower the blood pressure, but my family enjoys it.
Jill has a question she'd like to ask our readers: What is the one trait your hero has to have to make him a keeper in your mind?
