Guest Blog and Giveaway Water’s Threshold by Jillian Jacobs

Location setting. My sister lives in Seattle. The last time I visited, I was lucky enough to tour, Theo’s Chocolates. Across from Theo’s is Lake Union, we walked along a trail, a very fine mist fell and covered our skin. We journeyed past Google’s offices and gawked at the house boats. So that moment in time stuck with me, the drizzle, the lake, the topiary so I included it in Water’s Threshold. My sister, wearing my 
logo, went down and took pictures by the topiary. 

Here is the Water’s Threshold—“Dinosaur Topiary” excerpt: 

Job done, she could return to Terran. Relief and anticipation rushed through her along with a strong dose of happiness. She ran along the trail, exulting in the misty drizzle fanning across her face. She breathed it in, enjoying every particle soaking her skin. Two-dinosaur topiary seemed to laugh at her frolics, the glow from their ornamental eyes sparkling as she ran past.

Ahead was a break in the trees, and she ran for it, ready to plunge into the lake. A short trail led down to the retaining wall, and she leapt off.

A vice squeezed around her throat and wrenched her out of the air. The force propelled her against the water’s edge lined with blackberry bushes that scratched and tore as she tumbled. Her body remained out of her control when, once again, she was lifted right before she rolled into the water. An unforgiving energy slammed her onto the boulders hidden just beneath the lake’s surface along shore. The bones in her back crushed on impact. Darkness threatened, pain seared down her spine, and then he stood above her.


With every ounce of power left, she screamed for Nodin to return. Save me.

Now that she'd found her true mate, she refused to die. She blinked against the vacuum of emptiness threatening to overtake her.

Water. Her ravaged body half-rested in the liquid perpetuator of her life force. But was it enough to save her?

What would Quint do now that she was at his mercy?

What would I buy for Terran Forrester, Water’s Threshold’s hero for his Birthday?

Book Description:

What happens when a lonely water-girl finally finds her shore?

In a tourist town at the base of the Tetons, Maya Conway, a mythical being known as an Elemental, stands at a crossroads. On her current path, she is content using her life force water to protect humans and the environment. Her direction is altered when Mother Nature taps her to guide Terran Forrester, an analytical scientist, on his journey to become the next Elemental Earth.

If Maya crosses into his world, will her lonely heart find a partner or will his rational mind reject her otherworldly existence?

When an ancient evil evolved from dark matter shadows their steps, which path will they choose—logic or love?

Short Excerpt:

Hazy heat shot through her body. “Not shy at all, are you?” If only Terran knew how easily she could push him away.
“I’m very clear about what I want.” His dominant position was much too commanding, but at the same time, Maya found his boldness intriguing.
His lips hovered above hers and the scent of cinnamon enticed her senses. Their elemental connection vibrated throughout her body—strong, sensual, primal. Why him? Why had she never felt this attraction to Nodin or Flint? Was it because water flowed toward the shore? Was he the grounding force beneath her feet?
If she stretched, her lips would meet his. The flames from their kiss would burn down the building.
Fahrenheit 451 had nothing on them.
However, book burning in the children’s section would most likely get her dismissed as a volunteer. Tonight was soon enough to find out just how good cinnamon-flavored Terran tasted.
“I’ll drop by later.” She pushed a book against his chest and waited until he took it before stepping from under his cage. “You should read that book. It’s very informative.”

His brows drew together as he read the title aloud, “The Little Mermaid?”
