Editorial Reviews

Book Reviewer - Tiffany Davis
The Wishing Hour is an fun action packed fantasy romance that will leave you satisfied. I was drawn into the story quickly and could not put it down. The plot was fully developed.
J. Adams has a eye for detail and I felt like I was right with Celine and Sebastian on this dangerous romantic adventure. I really loved the bonding ceremony. It was so powerful. The Wishing Hour is a clean read! I highly recommend this book to those who love fantasy, adventure and romance. This book is a keeper.

J. (Jewel) Adams stays crazy busy with her family and writing. She has written several books in different genres and is also a motivational speaker to both youth and adult audiences. She home schools her four kids that are still at home, and between that and conjuring up new ideas for her books, her brain is completely fried most of the time. She and her husband Sean are the parents of eight children, which means they are both losing hair, but hey, that's what Rogaine is for, right?

In her spare time (when she has any) she likes to curl up with a good book and a healthy stash of orange Tic Tacs. She and her family reside in Utah.

Jewel loves hearing from her fans, so if you would like to contact her to tell her how much you love her books or give her sympathy for the fried brain, or suggestions for the hair loss problem (for her husband, of course) contact her at

Celine Anderson lives a pretty ordinary life of working with the elderly and taking care of her cat. That is until she lays eyes on Sebastian. From the moment she saw the immortal she felt the connection and knew that she could trust him and follow him around the world as he fought to protect her so that she could fulfill the prophecy. J. Adams' "The Wishing Hour" is a refreshing, endearing love story centering around the meshing of two totally different worlds for the greater good. This is a well paced story that will hold your attention with action and intrigue as the mystery of the deception unfolds and the truth is revealed. I recommend this story to readers of all genres. It was a romance novel with an underlying science fiction plot that was not overbearing. Those who do not normally read science fiction will be pleased that they gave "The Wishing Hour" a chance.

Celine Anderson lives a normal life. She's a loner with the only company being her cat, Henry. Her parents died and she has no siblings, so she's truly on her own. Then a sexy immortal enters her life and nothing is ever normal again. Sebastian's mission is to protect Celine. He takes her to another land, Challis. A place where people are truly at peace and happy. Celine discovers that she is the Woman of Prophecy who must give birth to the Golden Child. Sebastian has been chosen to be her mate and their love continues to grow as they take this journey together. However, there are evil beings out in the world who are determined to stop them. If Sebastian cannot save Celine, their peaceful world will come crashing down upon them and all the citizens of Challis. This is a contemporary romance with fantasy, mystery and adventure all rolled into one absolutely delightful story. Readers will fall in love with these beautiful characters. Celine and Sebastian will touch everyone's heart and grab onto it. Fantasy stories are usually hit or miss with me and this was a definite hit! I was totally captivated and swept into the world of Challis (wishing there truly was such a place). The main characters are truly good people that you can both sympathize with and cheer for. This is definitely an author I intend to watch out for.
