Jenna grew up in south Louisiana, amidst romantic plantation ruins, haunting swamps, and timeless legends. It's not surprising, then, that she wrote her first romance at the ripe old age of six! Three years later, this librarian's daughter turned to romantic suspense with Jacquie and the Swamp, a harrowing tale of a young woman on the run in the swamp and the dashing hero who helps her find her way home.
Since then her stories have grown in complexity, but her affinity for adventurous women and dangerous men has remained constant. She loves writing about strong characters torn between duty and desire, conscious choice and destiny.
Prior to being published, Jenna was a Golden Heart finalist and a double winner in the Silver Lining and TARA's First Impressions. She also won the prestigious Winning Beginnings, the Marlene, the Laurie, the Heart of the Rockies, Ignite the Flame, and Southern Heat, which brought her in contact with the editor at Silhouette who purchased her work.
When not writing stories brimming with deep emotion, steamy passion, and page-turning suspense, Jenna spends her time with her husband, two cats, two dogs, and a menagerie of plants in their Dallas, Texas home.

A great husband and kids…that's how Meg Montgomery has always seen her future. Her present…well, it looks a little different. Then suddenly she's guardian to her baby niece. And while the circumstances aren't ideal, Meg's determined to give Charlotte the home she deserves. That may be hard to achieve when Charlotte's uncle Russell comes back to town.
Because Russell is also Meg's almost ex-husband.
The distance between them has done nothing to diminish their powerful attraction. If anything, seeing him with Charlotte makes Meg realize what a great father he could be. And being together this way makes those dreams of her future almost a reality.

Over two years ago, Megan Montgomery tragically miscarried. Soon after losing her baby, her husband Russell left her. She angrily blames him for ending their marriage as he runs away at a time she needs him most; he leaves town. With the death of her sister-in-law Ainsley, Megan raises her infant niece Charlotte. However, more shocking to her is Russell has returned from overseas to take care of his late sister's daughter. When Megan and Russell meet, the abandonment hurt remains, but worse is he, his family and Charlotte's father failed to come to Ainsley's funeral. Russell insists he found out his sibling died two weeks ago, but knows that is inadequate as he failed his sister and his wife. However, Meggie begins to realize she is somewhat at fault with their split and he realizes he is too. Both agree Charlotte comes first Megan and Russell are superb lead characters as each failed one another at a critical moment when they needed each other. Two and half years later, they have a second chance at love if they can overcome the big failure and reach out to one another. Although in this instant communication age, it is hard to accept Russell not knowing his sister who idolized him and he cherished her died (his parents waited till he was coming home seems lame). Still readers will enjoy Meggie and Russell working through personal issues trying to forge a family with their niece. Harriet Klausner
