Meet the Author


USA Today Bestselling Author, Jennifer St. Giles/J.L. Saint/Jennifer Saints

This bewitching Georgia Peach is anything but ordinary. She�s a mother, nurse, thriller writer, award-winning paranormal/romance/contemporary author, passionate patriot, event planner and more! She�s also home schooled three children and is the Vice-President of a charitable foundation which helps women and children�s causes and in her spare time she writes screenplays!

J.L. in her own words:

Under a barrage of nagging by BFF�s, I�ve been told my bio was boring, not at all a reflection of just who I am beneath the surface, which is a compliment�I think. So, I promised to rev it up a bit. Thus the reason why I�m sitting here staring at the computer screen with nothing but crickets in my brain. I�m totally into making up wild and interesting stories with a lot of heart thrown into the mix, but telling people about myself isn�t so easy. What can I tell you about me?
I don�t play video games or watch horror because I can�t take the heat, but give me a kickass thriller every minute of every day and I am there. Be prepared for a Hoover Dam meltdown if you�re with me and the movie is sad. So, to avoid disaster, I love romantic comedies.

Never coffee. Always tea. Never beer. Always champagne. There�s more, but hey, gotta save some secrets until after the first date, right?

I grew up in Miami. Went to nursing school in Georgia, where I now reside. I raised and home schooled three great kids. I wrote for nine years before I sold a book, which made me a firm believer that a person should NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP ON THEIR DREAMS.

I remember my father�s remark after a particularly scandalous story about one of my ancestors, a story that involves a conspiracy, treason, betrayal, murder, and execution, a story that after a drink or two in the bar, I might be enticed to share. Anyway, what my father said was, �You can�t keep a good man down.� And I kind of see that in myself. Not that I am necessarily good, because the definitions of moral words are often relative, but I do persevere, and I am resilient. Nothing in life has ever worked out the way I planned for it too. In many areas of my life, I have yet to reach the level I thought I would, of where I envisioned I would be, but I haven�t given up.

Read the first-The Mistress of Trevelyn-and if you love that book, do not hesitate to buy this one. I loved them both, truly, and find myself wishing there was another installment.

In 1874, widow Juliet Boucheron and her two sisters Ginette and Mignon operate a B&B at their family home La Belle du Temps in New Orleans. Juliet has heard rumors that her spouse actually lives in Europe, but though she assumes he died trying to run a Union blockade a decade ago, she has hired an investigator Goodson to look into this. Goodson warns her to trust no one as her life is danger at the same time attorney Mr. Latour pressures her to sell her home to the Packert Investment Company.................. Writer Stephen Trevelyan rents a room from Juliet insisting he is a writer who needs quiet. He hides his true agenda from his hostess, which is to find stolen gold that he assumes her late spouse buried in the house. However, he soon changes his objective when he falls in love with Juliet now his goal is to keep the three sisters safe from an unknown assailant who wants them dead and has already poisoned Ginette................... HIS DARK DESIRES is a wonderful Americana romantic suspense thriller that is driven by the three sisters and Stephen, who appeared as a key support character in the gothic delight THE MISTRESS OF TREVELYAN where he learned a lesson in life. Juliet is a courageous person as she not only takes charge of the B&B, her sisters, and her son she bravely perhaps stupidly refuses to be bullied into a sale she feels is wrong though she is unsure how much longer heritage can hold out in a southern world turned upside down in the past decade. Jennifer St. Giles provides a fabulous Reconstruction Era tale................. Harriet Klausner
