My name is Jillian Chantal and I write romantic adventures with an International Flair. Most of my stories have an element of intrigue and at least one death, so I guess I’m a “Writer Who Kills.”
In my day job, I work as a lawyer and back when I first started to practice, I did a lot of criminal work. This early saturation in crime and criminals has come in handy as I write my tales of romance with an element of crime. I love to travel as well and try to have my characters travel to other continents in each book. I have a book coming out in July 2011 called Redemption for the Devil and the hero even goes to the Arctic in that one.
Solo Honeymoon comes out in January 2011 with Siren-BookStrand and it takes place in London, in Italy and New York City. I was hoping to have my cover art by now, but I don’t, so I can’t share that today. I can share the back cover blurb:
Emma Chauncey finds her fiancé naked with one of her bridesmaids on top of him three days before her wedding. Burned by the experience, she takes a friend on her honeymoon. They travel to an Italian villa where Emma plans to nurse her broken heart.
Wealthy, titled, and handsome, women’s shoe designer Dario DeLuca is also at the villa. In disguise as a dance instructor, he’s determined to find a woman to love him for himself, not his wealth and title. Sparks fly between Emma and Dario, until she learns his true identity.
Hurt that another man has lied to her, and distrusting her own judgment, she flees. Dario follows her to New York. But Emma’s former fiancé is back with an agenda of his own. Can Dario convince Emma he’s the man for her even though he lied about his identity? Can he convince her she deserves true love?
To celebrate the release of my debut novel in January, since the hero in Solo Honeymoon is a shoe designer from Milan, I’d like to send one person a shoe charm. Leave me a comment about your favorite place to travel and I’ll draw from the names for the charm.
