Guest post by Jessica Scott + Giveaway

I am very happy to welcome back to to the blog the lovely Jessica Scott, who stops by shortly after Valentine's Day to tell you a bit more about her latest release Anything For You, (that I LOVED!), which features the hero and heroine of her first novel, Because of YouYou might remember how much I enjoyed Because of You, so I am happy to revisit these characters, for whom I cried and sighed and I rooted for. Don't forget to answer the question at the end to be entered to win a great prize pack! Jess, take it over :-)

So glad to be back on Ex Libris, talking about Shane & Jen from Anything for You.

I originally wrote the first draft of Shane & Jen's story waay back in 2007 when I first started writing. Thankfully, no matter how many times I put them under the bed, they kept coming back, refusing to let me forget them. I guess they figured their story needed to be told.

When their story, Because of You, was selected as the launch for Random House's first digital imprint Loveswept, I was over the moon excited to say the least. Finally readers would get to enjoy their story. More than a year and a half since their story came out, they're still my strongest selling story.

I revisited them in Anything For You because, well, just like before their story was sold, they wouldn't leave me alone. There's more to their story. It's a journey rather than a happily ever after but the romance - the love - between them is unwavering. It was a lot of fun revisiting them. It was really surprising to me how quickly I fell back into their world, how easily Carponti came back to life for me. All of it felt so familiar and so…right. It was really great and I’m not sure there won’t be more short stories for them! They’ve been with me so long, it’s almost like they’re not willing to let me go!

I hope you'll check their Valentines Day story out. It's got to have one of the best valentines days ever written in it.

I’m giving away a digital copy of Anything for You as well as Shane & Jen’s first story Because of You to one lucky commenter!

Jessica Scott is a career army officer, mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs, wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.

Oprah has called her. True story.

Her debut novel BECAUSE OF YOU launched Loveswept, the first Random House digital imprint.

She's written for the New York Times At War Blog, PBS Point of View Regarding War, and IAVA. She deployed to Iraq in 2009 as part of OIF/New Dawn and is currently a company commander stationed at Fort Hood.

Most recently, she's been featured as one of Esquire Magazine's Americans of the Year for 2012.
