A Day Late and a Bride Short!!

I am so utterly excited that A Day Late and a Bride Short is finally available for your Kindle!!  This was the second book I wrote for Silhouette Romance.   I'm using "Holly Jacobs'Classic" just to let you know this is one of my earliest stories. Thank you everyone who's asked to have it available for their devices.

Thirteen years ago, when I sent this proposal to my editor, she sent me back a note from the Senior Editor saying that with that title, she'd expected a marriage of convenience story.  My original idea wasn't that at all, but as a very newish author,I said, "That's exactly what it will be."  My editor bought the proposal. 

It wasn't quite the story I intended to tell and to be honest, I wasn't sure how to write a contemporary marriage of convenience.  As someone who's been married for many years--someone who is still wildly in love with her husband--I have to confess, marriage isn't always convenient!  

Sarah and Donovan's story is available for preorder now!! Thanks so much and happy reading!

More Than Magic WINNER!!!!!

A Holly Jacobs' Classic Romance...
First Time as an eBook.

Donovan is an attorney on the rise. He's next in line for a partnership at his law firm. There's just one item missing from his resume...a wife.

Sarah is trying to get her fledgling business off the ground. She's looking for an attorney to help recoup the money she's owed. Money that could mean the difference between a successful business and scrapping her dream. She is absolutely NOT looking for a fiance, much less a husband. But when Donovan offers Sarah an engagement-of-convenience, she lets herself get persuaded it's just business.

Donovan and Sarah both discover when love enters the picture, their engagement isn't convenient in the least!


"... a beautiful, and sweet, love story. ...I can highly recommend this one it will stay with you long after you close the back cover." ~Romantic Times Bookclub, 4 1/2 Stars, TOP PICK!!

"My favorite Holly Jacobs book yet! What starts out as an engagement of convenience turns into a charming and delightful love story. Elias Donovan and Sarah Madison seems like extreme opposites until core values and heart's desires are revealed in this tale of awakening love. Ms. Jacob allows her energetic writing and talent for pairing entertaining characters to shine in A DAY LATE AND A BRIDE SHORT." ~Cheryl St.John, Author of MARRY ME…AGAIN, SSE, 8/03

"Ms. Jacobs has done it again! She has penned a delightful tale, full of her trademark humor and pure, sweet emotion. She has taken what could be a tired storyline – a marriage of convenience – and worked her own brand of magic on it, making it different and new. Of course, as said before, humor abounds, and there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments to be found." (4 1/2 stars) ~Kelley Hartsell, Love Romances

 " will love this one." ~Helen Slifer, Writers Unlimited Reviewer  "A Day Late and a Bride Short is sure to put a smile on your face..." ~Sharon Wren, Women on Writing Reviews
