I’m so excited to announce my new release, y’all!! It’s my first foray into New Adult territory (and NO, that doesn’t mean it’s..ahem…adult!!), and I’m thrilled that LEARNING TO LIVE has been so well received already! This book is most definitely the book of my heart, and I thought I’d post the Author Note for you guys, so you can know how this book came about…
Ever since I became a writer, this story has been knocking around in my head. Some of it is based on my own real-life experiences surrounding 9-11. I didn’t actually lose anyone that day, but I did watch the towers burn from my apartment for weeks on end, and I did suffer a great deal of post-traumatic depression several months after the attack. It was an incredibly dark time for me, as I’m sure it was for most, and I can’t even imagine what it would have been like to have had a loved one in those towers. But we’ve all lost someone at some point. We’ve all been victims to loss, depression, anxiety, guilt…all these things make us human, but they can also make us feel so incredibly alone. That’s why I finally put pen to paper, 13 years later, to share just a little bit of my story, and to hopefully help those who are feeling sad and alone right now to realize there is a light at the end of that dark tunnel.
In love and light, Jerrica

Sensuality: Warm (7)
Grace Clarke is no longer willing to accept the position of “poor relations.” Her sister has married well and taken her under her wing, so with her new connections, it ought to be a breeze to find a wealthy, titled gentleman to help elevate her station in life. Of course, she never expects for him to find her. Especially not in such a compromising position. But once she gets over her humiliation, she discovers that the duke next door is far more than just a duke. He’s a man that sets her heart–and other parts of her–aflame.
Evan Gilford, Duke of Somerset, has spent the last fifteen years trying to avoid his destiny: marriage. But he can’t ignore his duty anymore, not with his guilty conscience nagging at him all the bloody time and a betrothed waiting to become his duchess. So he returns to London, only to discover that he has a new and rather enchanting neighbor who soon makes him question where his loyalties lie: with his family or his heart.
Can I get a Hip, Hip, Hooray!?!?!? TEMPTATION OF THE DUKE is mere hours from its release! I’m very excited about this book, and I hope you are too! It’s the 5th book in a series I never planned to write another book for. But here it comes, all written and shiny and ready to meet the world. I know we’re not supposed to think of our books as our “babies” but I can’t help it. I still get attached.
