What is your full name?
Do you have a nickname?
Nope, just Jack. But I’ve been called worse.
I heard 😀
What is one word best describes you?
Hmm, jaded probably. I’ve been through the ringer with colleagues.
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
You want to know what I’m wearing? Can I change first? Or maybe strip down? It’s messy work I do.
I don’t think Sophia would appreciate me watched you to strip, but don’t let that stop you 😛
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yeah, you know, I think she understands me pretty well. She sure knew what I was looking for in a lady.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Sophia. That woman can take me to highs and lows in the space of a breath.
What is your favourite dessert?
Can I say Sophia? Will that be alright? he grins mischievously
What is your favourite drink?
What is your greatest fear?
Now that I have her, losing my darling Sophia. She’s pretty much everything to me.
What is your favourite colour?
Amber. The color of Sophie’s eyes. Love that woman.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
ahem The same thing I’m wearing straight out of the shower.
Water droplets? I smirk
What is the perfect romantic date?
An evening sitting on the deck of my ship… a little cheese… wine… out on the ocean… with the moon as big as my eyes when I first saw Sophia.
I remember that, you were smitten at first sight.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Me? Ticklish? Um, maybe. But only Sophie knows where.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
The sea… it’s peaceful. But these days, just about everything puts me in mind of my lovely wife.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Intelligent eyes. I can’t seem to tear my gaze away from those.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do. Sophia Vanderwahl MacAuley. She’s the only woman I’ll ever have eyes for again.
What is one word best describes her?
Spunky, intelligent, beautiful… oh yeah, you said just one.
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
No, no series yet. But I’m part of a collection, and I keep trying to get Tanya to write about Kell. Don’t you think he deserves a good woman?
Thank you Jack for chatting with me. Hugs to Sophia. Love her name. I’ll add my voice to yours to convince Tanya, Kell definitely needs his story told 😉
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.
Jack hails from Happily Ever After by Tanya Anne Crosby, one of my fave authors that knows how to lure me back into her worlds again and again.
Boston heiress Sophia Vanderwahl has come to realize her fiancé is a rotten philanderer. Looking for retribution, she sets out to find the wastrel to give back his engagement ring, hiring an old rival of his to take her to Mexico.
Although suspicious of her motives, Jack MacCauley needs the money to finance his expedition. In this light-hearted seafaring romance, Jack and Sophie learn to trust each other as lovers and friends.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by one of my voice crushes, Braden Wright. I had a chat with him a few years ago, check it out here if you missed it.
My review: 5 stars
I enjoyed listening to Mr. Wright perform this awesome story. I love his voices, the passion with which he brings the characters and story to life. My fave was Jack’s voice. YUM
Ms. Crosby really knows how to make a story shine. Historicals are not my first go-to genre, but the way the author portrays heroines that do not conform to the norm is very much to my liking and I liked Sophie despite her being a disaster magnet, she cracked me up with her reactions. The chemistry between her and Jack was palpable and once they gave in, it was magic. Ending with an HEA, my fave kind, left me giddy, a 5-star experience for sure.
