Who is Jennifer Faye?
First and foremost, I’m a wife and a mother. I adore my family and I’m so proud of their accomplishments. I’m their biggest cheerleader. I’m also a homebody as most everything I love to do is right here around me, from my humongous tea collection to my collection of cross-stitch books/materials to my flower gardens. But the one thing that I’m thrilled to do in life is tell stories. I have a very vivid and overactive imagination so my mind is jammed full of delicious fodder for books. ;-)What inspired you to be a writer?
I was very young, not even in school, when I learned from the television show “The Waltons” that you couldn’t get published if you didn’t have a typewriter. Yes, I said typewriter. So that Christmas I wrote to Santa and requested a typewriter. It was all the way back then when I knew my destiny, but I had to take a few detours in life before I got back on the right path.How did you chose your genre?
I was drawn to romance as a kid. I watched GONE WITH THE WIND every time it was on television. My mother was horrified that a little kid of eight would be so enthralled with such a movie. But Rhett Butler was just so dreamy. Later, in my teens I found some Harlequins at a sidewalk sale, and I was hooked. As they say, “It was all history after that.”What made you tell this story and why did you write this book?
RANCHER TO THE RESCUE was actually one of three diverse story ideas I developed to enter in the Harlequin Romance Fast Track. I wrote up a synopsis and first chapter for each idea. I then passed them around to some trusted people and had them rank the stories in the order of strength of quality/entertainment. It was unanimous, RANCHER TO THE RESCUE came out on top.How did you come up with the title?
I actually can’t take credit for the title. When I submitted the story to my editor, the working title was “The Cowboy’s Runaway Bride.” My editor, Carly Byrne, actually came up with RANCHER TO THE RESCUE. She wanted something romantic—something to suggest the heroine gets swept off her feet by the hero. I think she did a great job with the title. And between her and the art department, they created a cover to convey that sentiment as well as portray the characters as they are in the book. I hope everyone enjoys the story as it was a delight to write.
Rancher To The Rescue
Damsel in a wedding dress!
Jilted at the altar, celebrity chef Meghan Finnegan flees the scene—and the baying press—only to run straight into the muscled torso of Cash Sullivan.
The former rodeo champion knows what it's like to have your life crumble in the spotlight, so he offers Meghan a place to lie low at his ranch.
Fresh air, no paparazzi and the brooding rancher's lazy smile are making Meghan not want to leave her sanctuary. But she and her unborn baby can't stay here forever...can they?
