Meet the Author

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a writer when I grew up, but there were plenty of times when I wasn’t sure I ever would be. As it turns out, it just took me about twenty years longer to grow up than I expected!On the road to publication, I took a few detours, including a stint in academia (I hold an MA in Classics from the University of Chicago and was a recipient of a Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities) and many years as a technical writer/instructional designer for a data processing company. I still hold my day job in instructional design, but my true passion is writing steamy romances–both historical and contemporary.I learned to believe in love at first sight when I met the man of my dreams over two decades ago and to believe in happily ever after when I married him. I live in Southern California with my real-life hero, our three children, and an ever-changing menagerie of pets.

    Fun For All

    First I'll post the product description above and then offer my review.
    "Duncan Maxwell, laird of Lochmorton Castle, gets the shock of his life when he discovers the reiver captured in a raid on his lands is not a boy, but a young woman. Although she flatly refuses to tell him her name or how she came to be riding with a raiding party, Duncan cannot countenance imprisoning a woman in his dungeon but neither can he release her without compensation. Unable to ransom her back to her family, he treats her as an honored-though exceptionally well-supervised-guest. He takes to calling her Reva and determines to seduce the truth of her identity from her. There's just one problem-the reiver may steal his heart before he can reveal her secrets.

    This short story (approximately 35 pages) was originally published in the Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance.


    There is much to be said about this story. The Reiver has a healthy amount of mystery for the hero to puzzle through. Befuddled heroes are always fun, imo.lol. I loved how he tried to figure out her name by calling her something different every time they met up just to see if she'd react to it. So funny and clever! This story has a love that defies years of familial hatred(think Romeo and Juliet with a happy ending). The characters are incredibly mature and what would take hundreds of pages of thoughts and soul searching to come to their conclusions about each other in another book comes to them with some ease.

    I'd also like to say that Jackie Barbosa is perhaps the most underrated author living right now. Her prose is exquisite. She clearly researches her books very thoroughly and her clear intelligence fairly oozes off the page.

    Read this book and open yourself up to the genius that is Jackie Barbosa. You won't regret it.

    Way... To Short; But A Great Historical Romance

    A very short story, but a great one to read. I highly recommend reading this short story. Of course I would have loved to have read more about the characters and how the relationship developed between them at the beginning. But "Jackie Barbosa" wrote so well only brawing me into wanting more. I plan on reading more books by this author.
