From the Author's Website:

"I live in Oklahoma with my husband, Charlie, who inspires me to create stories about sexy, stubborn alpha males who don't always do what the heroine wants them to. I have a teenaged stepdaughter who is my shopping buddy extraordinaire, and two grown sons who live on the west coast that I miss terribly but fortunately get to see when time and air travel permits.

I am a multi published author who writes in many genres. I write for Bantam Dell, Berkley, Ellora's Cave and Samhain Publishing. I have been fortunate to win several awards, including the Romantic Times BookReview Magazine's Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Erotic Paranormal."


From My Bookshelf

It seemed like for a long time after I read Jaci's Running Mate I started reading a whole lot of Jaci's books. Going through my collection I found several titles and series that I remember really enjoying.

Jaci prints under three publishers, Berkley Heat, Ellora's Cave and Samhain Publishing, but as I am real fan of Ellora's Cave I have quite a few titles under that publisher. Listed are the books I have. Above is a Romance Byte on her current book. For those looking for go reads from Jaci start with the ones with the ****.
