Pre-order the Resort to Romance Series Now!

It’s less than a week away, and I couldn’t be any more excited! The first novella in the ten-book series releases February 19, 2019–and guess what? It’s my novella!


A Meddled Match kicks off the RESORT TO ROMANCE SERIES. I’m sure you have lots of questions. Let me help you out!

What is the Resort to Romance Series?

It’s Matchmaking Week at an all-inclusive resort on a private island in the Bahamas. Each guest has been expertly paired and is here to enjoy one full week with their match. While there’s no money-back guarantee on the paid trip, the participants are guaranteed to find love!

Get ready for ten weeks of romance in the Bahamas with a new series brought to you by some of the best authors in the inspirational and sweet romance genres…

Ten delightful – and standalone – novellas linked by one matchmaking week. You’ll want to devour each one!

What is A Meddled Match about?

A Meddled Match is a sweet romance (no sex or cussing–it is clean and wholesome), not an inspirational (faith-based) romance like my Love Inspired novels.

Here’s the back-cover copy.

Gavin Sterling wants no part of Matchmaking Week, but his eccentric great aunts insist he fill in for a no-show or he won’t have a chance at inheriting their island resort. Surprisingly, his match intrigues him. Mollie is blunt, sassy, and best of all, has no idea he’s the son of a billionaire.

Mollie Macomb needs a relaxing vacation without the dating drama. A relationship with Gavin would never work in the real world, anyhow. He’s a gorgeous businessman. She’s a quirky failure. But even the unlikeliest couple can find love during Matchmaking Week…

Where Do I Find the Series?

Each book is available for Kindle on Amazon. They are all at the bargain price of $0.99! But the price won’t last. One week after each book releases, the price goes up to $2.99, so pre-order them now!

Links to all ten books can be found at the Resort to Romance Series page!

Will I like it?

I hope so! Here are what some early reviewers have to say about A Meddled Match.

“One paragraph into this novella and I was all in! Loved every minute. Jill Kemerer has a hit with this one! If the rest of this series of novellas set in a matchmaking resort is anything like the first two, that will be wonderful…” ~ Susan (Goodreads)

“Oh my goodness!! What a fun read. I found myself laughing out loud and wishing I was on that Joy Island watching this all happen. I loved the cast of characters, the story line and the sweet and clean romance. This novella can be read in one sitting. ” ~ Dana (Goodreads)

“These two are a riot to watch and made me laugh at their antics! The witty banter alone endured me to Gavin & Molly. They fight the attraction between them at every turn, but everything conspires against them to prove that real love can be found anywhere! Ginny & Goldie are the eccentric aunts that are over-the-top hilarious; deep down they care a great deal for Gavin and only want to see him happy. I haven’t laughed so much at a story for a long time!” ~ Trixi (Goodreads)

Any questions? I’d love to answer them! Come back next week because we’re celebrating release week with an EPIC giveaway!!

Oh, and early Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here’s the scoop!


A Cradle for Christmas chapter one

A Cradle for Christmas

With just days to go until Christmas, Heather Springfield is nine months pregnant and all alone. So she escapes to her family’s old cabin in Michigan. The happiest summers of her life were spent there…all until that last one that ruined everything. But she’ll have to do her best to focus on her baby and avoid Mason Aldridge, the boy next door and the one who got away

Mason’s never forgotten the sweet girl who once held his heart. So when Heather arrives one snowy night, her very pregnant belly triggers a fresh round of regrets. If things had been different, he might have been the man fortunate enough to call her and the baby his. But in the spirit of the season, forgiveness is in the air, and two old friends may just find their way to the best Christmas gift of all—a brand-new family.

Cover Reveal! Writer Wednesday

Yuletide Redemption

The past two weeks have been so nice! We’ve visited family, and I’ve been able to catch up with several friends. I’m loving it! My writing schedule has been a bit more relaxed, too, which allows me to putter and read more than usual. Both puttering and reading make me happy. :)


Another lovely surprise? I got my cover for Yuletide Redemption! This book releases December 1, 2016, but paperbacks will be hitting store shelves as soon as November 22, 2016. It’s also available for preorder! I can barely take the excitement! Yay!!


Yuletide Redemption

She hopes taking a job caring for injured Sam Sheffield will help fulfill that goal. But Sam’s determination to avoid the world throws a wrench in her plans. Despite his best efforts, Sam can’t take his eyes off the pretty caretaker. Her strength and her loving nature has him falling for her—and her baby. But he refuses to burden them with a man who’s not whole. Can Celeste convince Sam he’s daddy—and husband—material in time for them to celebrate Christmas together?

Talking About Books on Television! Writer Wednesday

I was recently asked to appear on Rebecca Regnier’s local morning television show, Full Plate, and of course I said YES! The episode aired last Sunday, July 31, 2016. Whee! Since I’m not a television personality, I spent time preparing for it. You can read all of my handy-dandy tips– including the ultimate no-no STRIPES!!–over at the Pink Heart Society, “Tuesday Talk Time–Television Tips!

And without further ado, here is the clip!

If you can’t see the clip above, here is the link to it! Full Plate: Local Authors Share Their Summer Reads.

By the way, the books I recommended were Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Karen Witemeyer’s No Other Will Do. Both were excellent books, perfect for the beach!

Have you ever been on television? If yes, did it make you nervous or did you love it? If no, would you jump at the chance or turn it down?


Have a terrific day!

I Sold Another Book!

Day 1 Bible Challenge

You know when you fall in love with a setting and characters and just want to read more about them? Well, I’m so blessed! I sold the third book in the Lake Endwell series! The working title is CLAIMING HIS HEART, and it will release in early 2016 through Harlequin Love Inspired.

Writing about the Sheffields and Lake Endwell makes me happy. Sometimes I forget the town and family aren’t real! This book will follow Bryan Sheffield’s journey as he fights his feelings for the new girl in town.

In unrelated news, I was challenged by the fabulous Beth Vogt to take the 7 Day Bible Challenge. Here is the picture I posted on Facebook yesterday. You’ll have to pop over to Facebook to see today’s Bible passage! Maybe it will inspire YOU to take the 7 Day Bible Challenge too!
