Interview & Contest: Jill Shalvis

Jen: We are so excited to welcome Jill Shalvis’ book tour to Romancing the Book.  Jill, please tell us about Lucky in Love and the Lucky Harbor series.
Jill: Lucky In Love: A badass ex Navy SEAL hero trying to go good and a good girl heroine looking for a walk on the bad side … As for who wins that battle, you’ll have to read the book.

As for the whole series, we’ve got three chocoholic heroines all summer, LUCK IN LOVE, AT LAST, and FOREVER AND A DAY, and the sexy as hell heroes they fall in love with.

Jen: Who has inspired you as an author?
Jill: Book, TV, movies, friends, family, life … I’m a sponge.

Jen: If Lucky in Love was turned into a movie, who do you see in the starring roles?
Jill: I would want unknowns. A big, tough sexy as hell guy for Ty the ex Navy SEAL, and a soft pretty brunette for ER nurse Mallory.

Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she’s expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she’d like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he’s only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he’s gone . . .

For the first time in his life, Ty can’t bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn’t, including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all . . . anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.
