JACQUIE BIGGAR is a USA Today bestselling author of Romantic Suspense who loves to write about tough, alpha males who know what they want, that is until they're gob-smacked by heroines who are strong, contemporary women willing to show them what they really need is love. She is the author of the popular Wounded Hearts series and has just started a new series in paranormal suspense, Mended Souls.
She has been blessed with a long, happy marriage and enjoys writing romance novels that end with happily-ever-afters.
Jacquie lives in paradise along the west coast of Canada with her family and loves reading, writing, and flower gardening. She swears she can't function without coffee, preferably at the beach with her sweetheart. :)

Hi Marilyn,
You made my day! Yes there's going to be at least three more in the series, starting with Jared's best friend, Ty Garrett.
Ty fell in love at the tender age of seventeen. Two years later it fell apart, as young romances do, and he came away from the experience hurt and bitter.
Fast forward ten years, Ty's new company, Hot Shot Restoration, is contracted to renovate the old Twilight Theater for a wedding.
You got it, his first love's wedding, Katy Fowler.
Ty needs the prestige this job will give his company, and besides, he's over her now.
Until he sees her again, that is.
When someone begins sabotaging the building and Ty is blamed, can he prove his innocence and protect the woman he loves, or will he lose everything?

Here's one of my favorite paragraphs so far:

On the steps of the old theatre stood an angel gilded in white and gold. Her hair glittered like spun silk in the morning sun. But the filmy white dress she wore made him think of all kinds of sin. For once in his life, Ty Garrett was struck silent. He knew seeing Katy again would be hard, he just hadn’t realized how cruel fate could be.

Have you ever experienced the tyranny of the blank page?



If you’re nodding in agreement, you are in good company. In fact, I believe every writer—from beginner to published—has experienced those feelings of doubt and apprehension, especially at the start of a new manuscript. That’s when gre...

“Love. Jack almost choked on his lukewarm coffee. He had serious doubts such an animal truly existed. It certainly hadn’t in his case. Even his brother Ty had only recently found his mate, Katy Fowler, after a ten-year separation and a near death experience. If that’s what it took to have a warm body in his bed, he’d pass.”
Jacquie Biggar, The Sheriff Meets His Match

“A blast of what felt like a Canadian wind had him hurrying to zip closed his shearling jacket and pull the collar up to protect his neck. He trudged through the drifting snow toward the driver’s side window of the speed freak, careful to keep behind the line of his cruiser in case any other idiots were on the road today.”

Cindy Gerard, To the Brink

“Jake became excruciatingly aware of her, there, right behind him. The small grunts and groans as she placed each foot carefully on the slick ground reverberated in his gut. He wanted to turn around and tell her to shut the hell up.
She sounded as though she was having sex.
Good sex.”
Cherry Adair, Kiss and Tell
