Thanks for coming to Lucky Harbor. I'm sure your presence has already been noted by Lucille and the rest of her blue-hair posse and will shortly be posted on their Facebook page. Hope you don't have toilet paper stuck to your shoe.
Or any secrets...
In these pages are recipes on how to catch a man, how to cope with sisters, and bunches of wisdom. Whoops, sorry. Wrong book. (See either Simply Irresistible, The Sweetest Thing, or Head Over Heels).
There are, however, some fantastic recipes from my very own kitchen, and in the cooking of these recipes, I can guarantee you a culinary experience that will make you forget your troubles.
Happy cooking, happy eating, and happy reading!

Sony Q&A with Jill Shalvis
What inspired this cookbook?
I wrote a book called The Sweetest Thing, with a heroine who is a chef. I created these elaborate recipe titles for her, secure in the knowledge that she had to cook them, not me. Ha. Then my publisher asked for the recipes. That'll teach me to be creative.
How would you describe your main character, Tara?
Smart, sarcastic, tough, and secretly terrified of getting hurt again. Oh, and she wields one hell of a spatula.
Tara finds love while cooking in the kitchen with Ford. Is the story sexy?
Trust me. Yes. It's called Heating Up The Kitchen for quite a few reasons... :)
The book also contains advice from Tara. Which is your favorite quote?
Well on days when a relationship isn't going so well, it's "never mess up an apology with an excuse." But when love is in the air, it's "never do anything that you don't want to have to explain to 9-1-1 personnel." But I think Tara's favorite quote is probably "you haven't lived until you've loved."
Tell us about your next book.
Head Over Heels tells Tara's sister's story. The baby sister. The Wild Thing. And there's only one man for her, the one man in Lucky Harbor that she should stay away from - and the only man who could possibly handle her -- the sexy, badass sheriff Sawyer Thompson.
This title is an ebook exclusive. Are all your books available as ebooks?
Nearly every single one of my books is now available as an ebook. I get letters from readers catching up with my backlist in a way they couldn't have only a few years ago. At least not without extensive used-bookstore hunting. I love it.
