Welcome author Jane Wakely

I'd like to welcome author Jane Wakely to my blog today.  Let's find out more about her and her book
"Only You."

1-How long have you been writing?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been writing and creating stories. Professionally speaking, I’ve been writing and publishing for almost three years.

2- What is your favorite genre to write?
I love writing paranormal romance. I enjoy creating my own worlds, rules and beings—especially shifters!

3-What are you working on now?
Right now I’m working on “Book 7,” the last book in my Chestnut Rock Shifters series.

4-When you begin a story do you start with character or plot?
It really depends on the story. Sometimes I get a great idea and build a story around it, sometimes a character “forces” me to build a story around him/her. ;)

5-Tell us about your latest/upcoming release. What inspired it?
My new release, ONLY YOU, is a contemporary romance. My hero and heroine grew up together and he’s her brother’s best friend. I love stories where two people who love each other finally get together. I decided my plus-sized heroine deserved to get her man in a way where she would never question his love or desire.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Jessica has been in love with her brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember. They grew up together, but he never seems to look at her as anything more than a little sister. Her appearance doesn’t help. She’s short and curvy with a few extra pounds, not the type most men find attractive.

Kyle is in love with Jessica. He’s been in love with her forever, but he’s always kept his distance because she’s his best friend, Robbie’s, sister. Tired of staying away from her, Kyle arrives at Jessica’s door intent on telling her his feelings, but her beauty distracts him and he kisses her instead.

Jessica knows deep down they should stop. Their friendship and her heart could be destroyed, but she’s wanted him for so long. A few seconds is all it takes to change her mind. The following morning, her brother arrives and quickly figures out what happened, and what didn’t. Chaos ensues and lifelong friendships are tested when Robbie defends his sister, Jessica defends Kyle and Kyle tries to declare himself.

Jessica grabbed a bottle of water and slowly drank it while looking at the mail she’d brought in earlier and left on the kitchen counter.

The pounding on her door startled her, and a giant drop of water sloshed out of the bottle and landed on a grocery store advertisement. She glanced at the clock and put the cap back on the bottle. It was eleven o’clock on a Friday night. No one should be coming to her door. She walked over quietly and looked out the peephole just as the pounding started again.

When she recognized Kyle, panic washed over her and she quickly opened the door.

“Kyle, what’s the matter?” The words rushed out as fear gripped her—had something happened to Robbie?

He looked left and right before stepping into her apartment and closing the door. Jessica had no choice but to step back out of his way.

“What the hell are you doing answering the door dressed like that?” he scolded before looking down the hall toward her bedroom with the light still on. “Are you alone?”

She glanced down and was reminded of her silk cami and matching shorts. She inwardly groaned at her hard nipples pointing through her top. In her haste to open the door and see what was wrong, she didn’t think about what she was wearing. She was braless, and Kyle had a view of more skin and curves than she would have liked. Kyle had seen her in her pajamas many times, but they were usually plaid or matching cotton and covered much more of her curvy body.

Jessica felt vulnerable, but his reprimand and frown pissed her off.

Barnes and Noble:  
All Romance:  

Jane has always been a writer. Even when she took a break from it for a few years, she couldn’t keep the stories from filling her head. As an avid romance reader, she finally decided her stories needed to be free, and she started writing again. 

Reading and liking all genres of romance; it makes sense that she would write that way too. Her stories range from sweet to erotic, contemporary to paranormal, and a bunch in-between. She loves all romance genres, and all levels of spice.

Jane lives on the east coast of the United States with her loving husband, daughter and their Miniature Dachshund.
