Meet Jill James, Romance Author

Hello readers. Meet Jill James, author of The Second Chance Series. Today she's sharing her newest release Divorce Interrupted. Welcome, Jill! I'm thrilled to have you on my blog today and thank you for having me on your blog. I enjoyed reading your blurb and excerpt. It sounds like a story filled with emotion.


Newly-divorced Todd and Lisa Miller are stranded at their mountain cabin. There to divide a lifetime of memories, they soon are in danger from more than the anger between them. A vicious storm forces them to rely on each other to survive.

Can they trust the one person they lost belief in? Or are their hearts in danger from more than floods and frigid weather?


The wind crashed against the bay window in the front of the cabin. Lisa Miller jumped up and knocked over her chair. Her shaking hand flew to her chest. Her heartbeat pounded. “That one sounded like it went through the window.”

She peered around the doorway to the living room. She sighed in relief. The glass was still in one piece, although a large pine bough sat on the front porch. The wet needles stood out in bas-relief against the graying sky.

This had been a bad idea, she berated herself. She could’ve waited for the storm of the century to pass before she came up to the lake. Even with her husband, Todd, coming next week, she could’ve waited. A sob caught in her throat like a burr. Todd, her newly, the ink hardly dry on the divorce decree, ex-husband.

She righted the chair and fell into it. How had it come to this? She’d been in love with Todd for as long as she could remember. He’d been her first boyfriend, her first lover, and she’d been sure, her last.

Throwing her head back, Lisa stared at the ceiling. Finding no comfort in the familiar cedar logs, she brought her head down and gazed into space. Her sight unfocused, the kitchen viewed through a haze of tears she refused to shed.

Twenty years. Gone in an instant. Her abrupt decision to take her boss up on his umpteenth attempt at flirting. A nano-second to throw it all away. For what turned out to be mediocre sex at best. Todd had ruined her for any other man. He loved her with his heart and soul, and she’d trampled it for half the allotted time in a tawdry motel with hourly rates and smelly, overused sheets.

Jill is giving away an ecopy of Divorce Interrupted in either Kindle, Nook, or PDF format to one lucky commenter. Good luck!

Please leave Jill a comment. Thank you for being here today Jill and best of luck with Divorce Interrupted.

Happy Reading and Writing!



  1. The cover caught my eye right away, it's very romantic and it sort of looks like they are near a cozy fireplace, which comes in handy if you were stranded. My favorite storyline to read about is second chances. I'm always curious to see how a couple can rekindle the spark and if they are willing to change and accept. What I really like about this story is that the couple have been married for a long time. They've been there and done that and know so much about it each other. It's both a challenge but also a good thing. :) I'm adding this book to my wishlist.


  2. This book sounds like a wonderful read. It has definitely gone on my wish list. Beautiful, romantic cover.


  3. I love to read about ex-couples who are forced to rely on each other & rediscover the reasons they got together in the first place.

  4. Na, thanks for the lovely comments. That cover is by the very talented Elaina Lee. When I was checking out cover artists her work had just the dreamy quality I was looking for. Hope you enjoy Divorce, Interrupted.

  5. Sarah, thank you. I wanted to write something that wasn't the blush of first love. Sometimes a love you have to fight a little harder for can be its own reward.

  6. Kathryn, you said that so right. I wanted a couple who needed to be reminded of the 20 happy years they'd had and were throwing away.

  7. I like the sound of this premise and the excerpt too. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

  8. Carol, thank you for your gracious words. I really enjoyed coming up with this storyline.

  9. I enjoyed the excerpt; it was a great read.

    I'm adding Divorce, Interrupted to my wish list.
