Jilly’s Dilemma (Present Day)

She’s the new owner of Fairwinds, a flaky artist who talks to ghosts. Repeatedly.
He’s the staid, young professor there to document Fairwinds' history.

Their love will make you believe in the legend.

 

When Jillian Barclay inherits the family estate of Fairwinds from her father, it comes with the provision that she must live there for a minimum of three years before she can sell the property. Jilly grew up at Fairwinds, so shes more than aware of the strange occurrences, the presence of the ghosts of Captain John Jacob Wilder and Lillian Wilder—the infamous 18th century pirate and his beloved wife. As a matter of fact, Jilly talks to them on a regular basis.

 

A renowned sculptor, Jilly reluctantly relocates her studio to Fairwinds and sets out to honor her fathers wishes. Theres a second provision in her fathers will that has her more concerned than having to put up with the homes extremely active spirits.

 

Nicholas Martin, PhD is about to become Jillys other problem. An associate professor of history, Nicholas has been granted five days’ access to Fairwinds to study the homes history as part of research project for Harvard Universitys history museum.

 

Expecting a stodgy old professor, when Jilly meets the professor, shes wishing he was there to model for her rather than study her home. Younger, and far sexier, than shed pictured, shes immediately drawn to the handsome professor.

 

Nicholas has spent the previous three weeks studying five other homes on the list of historical New England homes, all of which were inhabited by octogenarian, cat-loving spinsters. He has no reason to believe Fairwinds will be any different. The young woman with the wild red curls and penchant for talking to spirits is the last thing he expected, and the one thing his usually buttoned-up personality needs. Desperately.

 

Will opposites truly attract? Or is it just the unusual effects of the ghostly carnal encounters that drives them into one anothers arms? And when they can no longer resist their desires, will they be able to find a working compromise to his professional career and her legal commitments?

A Word With the Author:

 

1.Did you always want to be an author?

 

No. I wanted to be an accountant. Thankfully, I discovered writing and saved myself from what would have likely bored me to tears (no offense to those who love number crunching).

 

I didn’t start writing romance until I was in my 40s but, once the bug hit, it was impossible to shake.

 


2.Tell us about the publication of your first book.

 

My first book, Courting Trouble, was published in 1996 by Kensington Publishing, as part of their joint project with Walmart. The Precious Gems line was created to provide affordable romance novels to their customers. I’d been writing and submitting without luck for a couple years prior, but that fateful meeting with the late Kate Duffy at the Dallas RWA conference was the start of a long, and enjoyable, career.


3.Besides yourself, who is your favorite author in the genre you write in?

 

LOL ... I can’t be my favorite? Believe me, I’m not. I’m a fan of the “old-timers”, Elizabeth Lowell, Jude Deveraux, Sandra Brown, Nora What’s-Her-Name, and probably one of the most underrated word wizards, Ruth Ryan Langan. As for a “favorite” ... it would have to be Elizabeth Lowell, but they’re all wonderful.


4.What's the best part of being an author? The worst?

 

The best: The chance to create something entertaining for those who read my books and enjoy my writing. Also, the opportunity to work with other authors like Lisa A. Olech and Kathryn Hills, on projects like this one.

 

The worst: It’s a toss-up between deadlines, and the millions of dollars I’m NOT making.

 


5.What are you working on now?

 

That depends on the time of the day and my mood. I’ve got three projects going at the moment, so my day is divided among them.

 

Mornings, I’m tweaking my October sweet romance holiday release, Christmas Carole, for final upload.

 

Early afternoon, it’s writing my shorter, steamier rom-com holiday story, His Secret Santa, scheduled for November.

 

Evenings: it’s my next multi-author, sweet western mail-order bride holiday story, A Christmas Baby for Beatrice, which actually releases the week after Christmas.

 

Weekends: it’s all about the next book in my historical family saga.

Thank you so much for sharing Jilly's portion of this great anthology. I'll check back throughout the day to answer questions and respond to comments.

Kathryn Hills said...

Wow I learned SO MUCH about you, Nancy Fraser! And we've been friends for years. :D I adore your two books in this anthology, and Jilly's Dilemma is just fun and fantastic. What's not to love about a hunky professor, an out-there sculptor, PLUS a haunted mansion.

Thank you for hosting Nancy, and our GHOSTS OF NEW ENGLAND anthology, Elaine!

Good morning, Elaine! Thank you so much for featuring our anthology today and spotlighting Nancy Fraser. I love bts interviews. I learn so much! I obviously need to find out what kind of coffee Nancy drinks. There's no keeping up with her! What she failed to mention is what a talented cover designer she is, and how generous she is not only with her time, but with her knowledge of all aspects of book production. I was honored to be asked to join this fine group of authors on this project. A first multi-author collaborative for me, and Nancy led the way! It was a great experience, and resulted in a great anthology. I hope all your followers enjoy reading it.
