Guest Post & Giveaway with JESSIE DONOVAN

Bickering Romances
Jessie Donovan
When I was really little, I used to spend a lot of weekends at my paternal grandparents’ house. Every time I was there, my grandma and grandpa would often yell out for the other, and then they’d start making cheeky comments to each other. At first, I thought they just fought all of the time. But then one day I was with my grandpa during one of these shout-across-the-house matches, and asked him why they were yelling. He winked at me and said, “Because it’s more fun.”

Over the next twenty-odd years I started to think of their bickering as an example of how to keep marriage interesting (they were married for sixty-six years before my grandma died). So it was only natural that when I published my first romance book, the hero and heroine would argue as well. The way I see it, the arguments for fun reduce the number of real arguments. Besides, I’m sure Kiarra and Jaxton enjoy the passionate make-up sex!

What do you think? Do you enjoy heroes and heroines that argue with each other? Or do you think it’s childish?

Blaze of Secrets 

Asylums for Magical Threats 
Book #1 

To avoid persecution, the Feiru will do anything to keep their elemental magic a secret from humans—even lock away their children for life. Few know what goes on inside the prison system for magic users, but that is about to change…
Kiarra Melini overhears the dangerous secrets of her blood and decides that if Feiru elemental magic is to survive, she needs to die. But before she can finish the deed, a handsome black-clad man kidnaps her from prison and introduces her to an anti-prison activist group. As the prison retrieval squad hunts for her, Kiarra must overcome the demons of her past or risk losing not only her newfound freedom, but also the man who reawakens her desires and captures her heart.
Jaxton Ward finally rescues his older brother from prison, but instead of helping with his brother’s recovery, he’s ordered to train Kiarra—a stubborn elemental fire user who claims her magic is gone. But just as Kiarra starts trusting him with her secrets, the prison enforcers catch up with them. Now Jaxton must find a way to keep his family safe while also protecting the only woman able to ignite both his temper and his passion.
