Lumberjack In Love

I read Lumberjack in Love by Penny Watson start to finish Christmas day, and wow, what a treat. It was fun, fun, fun, and hot. There were hairy abs, hairy forearms, hairy thighs, hairy faces. We’re talking lots of coarse, manly hair, ladies, and I was LUVIN it.

“Oh my goodness, you are a nice, hairy lumberjack, aren’t you?”

Ami is a city slicker with a love of all things horticultural. Marcus is a nature-loving, down-to-earth tree-house builder with an axe and a dog. He appreciates the view when Ami comes around to pay him for the treehouse he’s building for her niece, but when he discovers he has feelings for the fiesty, nature-avoiding prissy girl, he becomes, well, annoyed. That doesn’t mean he can keep his big hairy hands off her, though. Oh, no. Definitely not.

These two had me splitting a gut over their bickering as they warmed my heart with their flirting. It became aparent to me early on they were meant to be together, but Ami has trust issues to overcome, and Marcus needs a woman who can stomach living in the semi-wilderness, not one who constantly complains about the poor coffee selection at Bill and Bob’s local mart.

Enjoy these fun lines from the super fun Lumberjack in Love, and pick up your copy ASAP:

Knock on the front door, or investigate the strange noise? Mr. Mountain Man was clearly outside, doing his mountain manly business. Was there a Mrs. Mountain Man in the picture, maybe sewing the checkerboard curtains and keeping his axe well-oiled?–Kindle Locations 38-39.

   “She’s got a point. It is healthier to live up here.”
   “And boring-er.”
   He banged the door shut behind him. “Boring-er is not a word.”
   “It should be. It could be the Vermont state word. ‘Welcome to Vermont, Where It’s Boring-er Than Wherever You Live.’”–Kindle Locations 105-108.

   “I am not interfering in your life. I just hate to see you close yourself off because of Dan the Dork. It’s time to get back on the horse. Learn to ride a bike again. Grab life by its horns—”
   “Stop. Please. You’re mixing your metaphors. I am totally content with my life.”–Kindle Locations 230-232.

Something about this flatlander was getting under his skin. She was a fascinating mix of sass, sex and just a hint of vulnerability. He wanted to see her naked.–Kindle Locations 351-352.


About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
