Jill Marie is a native of southern California who, after a whirlwind life as a military wife, now makes her home with her husband in North Carolina, where she serves at the beck and call of two purebred cats and one adorable granddaughter. Obsessions include all things animal rescue, fairy-tale romances, knowing the lyrics to the best songs from old musicals, and perfecting the perfect pastry crust.

During her former career as a romance novelist, Jill Marie won both the Carol Award and RWA's Inspirational Readers' Choice Award. Now she prefers her novels to include a dash of magic along with the heart-melting romance.

Cover Reveal!

I may have squealed.)This was perfect timing since I also JUST finished drafting this novel. I'm due to turn it in to my editor tomorrow morning, so I'm doing some last-minute reading and tweaking. But otherwise . . . w... Read more of this blog post »

The Lady and the Frog by L. Palmer
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book totally surprised me! Instead of being a straight retelling of The Frog Prince, it is more of an "inspired by" story that begins with a well, a gold ball, a distraught girl, and a helpful guy named Jack. . . who ends up as a frog for his ef ...more

Although the frog-prince tie-in is tenuous, I did enjoy this sweet story. I had read only book 1 in the Hagenheim series before, and that was years ago, but I began to suspect that many of the side characters in this story had featured in the earlier ...more

I read books 1&2 in this series a few years back and mourned that no book 3 seemed to be forthcoming. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear that OLIVER INVICTUS had been released. I virtually inhaled it.
But, a book about Oliver, the snott

“I'll never tell you to stop loving. You see, I believe in hopeless love. Oh yes. I believe in it with all my heart, though you may discount the heart of an old nanny like me. For real love brings pain. Real love means sacrifices and hurts and all the thousand shocks of life. But it also means beauty, true beauty.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Moonblood

“She stared at the featureless iron and felt more keenly than ever the distance between them. Now. Now was the time to say what might be the last words he would ever hear from her.
"Fight," she said at last. "Win.”
Suzannah Rowntree, Pendragon's Heir

“Then I plop into the sand, look up at the vast starry sky above, and cry until my tears run dry. I am alone, as I always have been.”
Kate Stradling, Namesake
