My latest sweet romance, Rescuing the Rancher, releases this week! I’m so, so excited for everyone to read Nate and Jossy’s story.
Part of the reason I’m so looking forward to sharing the story with you is because of Jossy Jansen. She’s strong and vibrant, but vulnerable and flawed. And I just love her character!
If you read Catching the Cowboy you met Jossy, Hud’s teasing, hard-working, sassy older sister.
When I began developing Jossy’s character, I drew a lot of inspiration from someone I’ve known since I was nine.
Sure, the guy was handsome, in an urban, rarely-sees-sunshine kind of way. That salon-cut hair was a fantastic shade of light brown and full of finger-tempting waves. Warm green eyes made her think of all the things she loved most about spring. His nose was straight, and his jaw firm. A pair of tantalizing lips that could have been sculpted by a master artist made her absently consider if he was a good kisser.
The expensive tailored suit he wore stretched across broad shoulders, but one glance at his hands removed any doubts about the man being accustomed to hard labor. Beneath the suit, she envisioned soft, lax muscles that were rarely used for more than typing notes and packing around a briefcase. For reasons she couldn’t possibly begin to understand, let alone explain, the thought of him allowing what would otherwise be an impressive physique to go to waste made her angry.
A bump against her leg beneath the table drew her gaze from the unwanted guest to the man sitting beside her. She gave Parker Princeton, her brother’s best friend, a questioning glance as his leg knocked against hers a second time.
“Isn’t that right, Jossy?” Parker asked, staring at her in question.
“Um …” Jossy had no idea what Parker had said. She’d been so involved in scavenging for Nathaniel Knight’s flaws, she hadn’t paid attention to the conversation taking place around her.
“A captivating story of redemption and love between two people yearning for happiness and the true meaning of life.”
