Jennifer Shirk has a bachelor degree in pharmacy-which has in NO WAY at all helped her with her writing career. But she likes to point it out, since it shows romantic-at-hearts come in all shapes, sizes, and mind-numbing educations.

She is a USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of sweet (and sometimes even funny) romances for Montlake Romance and Entangled Publishing.

Lately she's been on a serious exercise kick. But don't hold that against her.

Lucas is a trivia buff and a bit of a know-it-all, but definitely funny and kind. That's all I'm saying! :-)

Things that Make You Ask WHY


Hi, all


So, I was reading another author's blog the other day and something she said on it has been sticking in my mind. She said one of the best things you can do for your mental health and to manage your time as a writer is to continuously ask yourself "WHY?"


For example:

Why am I not taking my writing more seriously?

Why do I care so much about reviews?

Why am I on Twitter?

Why do I want an Read more of this blog post »

Hands down my favorite book of 2020. 🙌🏻

This is a completely charming novel about a bank robbery that never took place and a hostage situation that ties eight different characters together in hilarious and somewhat poignant ways.

I laughed out loud so

“Ta-ta?” she asked Jack, once Jessica was out of earshot. “I can't believe you went out with a woman who uses that interjection.”
“I can't believe I'm ‘going out’ with a woman who uses the word ‘interjection.”
Jennifer Shirk, Fiance by Fate

“Special. Cute. Friends. He wished she'd just cut his testicles off and be done with it already. Depending on the next adjective she chose for him, he would either qualify as a card-carrying member of Emasculated Men's Club or a Muppet. No wonder he avoided love for as long as he had. When it went unrequited, it truly sucked.”
Jennifer Shirk, A Little Bit Cupid

“Careful,” he chided with a grin. “First you talk marriage and now you're telling me what to eat. You're sounding more and more like a real girlfriend every day. Just remember, this is still our first date, so keep your hands to yourself tonight. I'm not one of those guys.”
Jennifer Shirk, Fiance by Fate

I know. So sad. I live near where the hurricane landed. It seems like we were pretty lucky compared to all the towns north of that.

I think it's more than 27 now! Wow, when you recommend a book, people listen. LOL

You were way up there in the state! I went to college in New Brunswick (Rutgers)--just a little south of that.

Oh, thank you! I'm a BIG Harlequin fan, so I'll check out your profile often.

The good thing about pharmacy is that you'll always have a job. It's pretty recession-proof. Good luck with it!

Harlequin Books Hi Jennifer, I'm pleased to meet you and look forward to discussing books with you. If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com and all it has to offer, please ask. I'll be happy to answer. I’ll also have Harlequin news updates on my profile on a regular basis so be sure to stop by to keep up on everything Harlequin.

Just a coincidence, I started my college education with the hopes of becoming a pharmacist.


Penelope Marzec Thanks for adding me as a friend!
