Q&A with Jennie Marts!

 We ask Jennie Marts the tough questions!

What was your favorite aspect of pulling all of this story together? I loved the ending where I got to bring everything together and tie up all of the fun parts of the story. I really love happily ever afters!

Most frustrating? The parts I had to cut. ☹ This book came in long and we needed to cut out some sections and that’s always hard.


If you could only read five books for the rest of your life, what five books would they be, and why?

  1. Can I count the Harry Potter series as one book??? Because I could read those forever. They are my favorite books. I love the idea of an average kid getting a chance to go to magic school and be a wizard and the writing is just out of this world.
  2. One of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich—she’s my favorite author and those books always make me laugh.
  3. The Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. This book touched my heart and changed me in profound ways. I loved this book.
  4. Outlander- this one is nice and chunky and takes a long time to read and lets you live in the world of Claire and Red Jamie for a long time
  5. Fried Green Tomatoes by Fannie Flagg- I love the small town worlds that she builds and the feel good feels of all of her books.


What was the first romance novel you read? The first one that comes to mind was The Reef by Nora Roberts.


What do you remember about it? How much I got wrapped up in the story and couldn’t put it down.


What did you like most about it? The suspense aspect mixed with the romance. I have always loved adding a bit of mystery to all of my books as well. I like it when the reader is trying to figure out the twists.


What did you like least about it? Nothing. I loved it.


Have you ever reread it? If you did, how do you feel about it now? Nope. There are too many new books to read. I very rarely reread a book a second time. My attention is always drawn to the next great story.


Darcy or Wentworth? Darcy

BONUS: who’s your favorite Darcy or Wentworth on screen? Colin Firth, of course. ☺

Rochester or Heathcliff? Rochester

Spock or Kirk? Kirk (especially when he is played by Chris Pine!)

Sunrise or sunset? Sunset

Angst or humor? Humor! Always!

Tea or coffee? Coffee in the morning. Iced Tea in the afternoon. I actually like creamer with a splash of coffee.

Wine or beer? Wine—Moscato is my fave.

Cake or pie? Cake

Jeans or a suit? Jeans

Car or motorcycle? Car

CatchingTheCowgirl_500ABOUT THE BOOK:

California video game designer Adam Clark knows that, in his business, authenticity is the key. So, for their newest Western adventure game, he and his partners decide to try out Cowboy Camp. Only Adam’s friends never arrive, leaving him a bit—okay, a lot—preoccupied, trying to resist the gorgeous cowgirl who owns the ranch.

Single mom Skye Hawkins is too busy trying to keep her family’s dude ranch out of the red to even think about romance. But she’s having trouble avoiding Adam. He’s smart, he’s sweet, he’s funny…and he’s hot! Maybe it’s the mountain air, but she finds herself letting down her guard. And the fireworks are definitely worth it.

The only problem—they live in totally different worlds. Still, Adam is nothing if not resourceful. Sure, he wants to catch the cowgirl. But more importantly, he needs to find a way to keep her.
