Violet has always felt unseen. As a younger daughter of a powerful fae family and one of the famed terre-verde sisters, she’s never stood on her own. Shy and unassuming, Violet envies her older sister Liliana’s passion and purpose. It isn’t until she meets Beorn, next in line to be king of the fera, that Violet feels truly seen.

Wild and rebellious, Beorn is more interested in antagonizing his father than in his responsibilities to the fera. Consorting with humans is bad enough, but when Beorn falls head over heels for the daughter of another fae house, he knows he’s risking far more than just his father’s anger.

When Liliana chooses to renounce her magic in order to marry a human, the entire fae realm is thrown into turmoil. As lines are drawn between houses, can Violet and Beorn’s forbidden love withstand those who would seek to destroy it?


Avowed is a 29k word companion story novella to the fairytale trilogy. It takes place chronologically before Awake: A Fairytale, but can be read at any point.

dear readers…

– posted on my Facebook page in June, it’s taken a bit of time to remember to post it here –

Dear readers,

Hello. You may have noticed that it’s June and Aspire is not yet out in the world as I promised it would be. I have nothing to offer but my sincere apologies. Aspire isn’t ready, and I cannot put out a book that isn’t yet ready. I should have – as always – been more upfront with you when deadlines were not met.
I truly have no excuses, though I do have reasons. I can’t talk about most of them publicly at this time, but please know I covet your good thoughts and your prayers (if you’re a praying type of person). Life puts a lot of pressures on us at times, and the last few years have definitely been one of those times for me. I thank those of you who have messaged me for your concern. I am okay, my kids are okay, and I am slowly finding my way back to being a teller of stories.
I do not have any new dates – and as my boss at work says, “No one wants to hear about the labor pains, they just want to see the baby.” So someday – hopefully sooner rather than later – I’ll show up with a brand new baby book and you can all assure me that I didn’t even look pregnant (lie if you have to).
I do sincerely appreciate everyone who has read any of my books, and those of you who care about this trilogy especially. Thank you so very much for your support.

– Jess

so…what’s up with aspire?

I’ve had a lot of people ask me recently when Aspire: A Fairytale is coming out.  First of all, let me tell you THANK YOU.  Thank you for reading the Fairytale Trilogy.  Thank you for caring so much about Alex, Becca, and Lilia and wanting to read Lilia’s story.


Here is where I’m brutally honest for a few minutes about life and general related life crap: 2014 was pretty hard for me. In fact, a year ago today I left my verbally and emotionally abusive marriage and have been locked in a rather nasty divorce and custody battle since.  This has made making time for writing really hard…and having the emotional stamina to write even harder.


I want to apologize to all of the readers that were expecting Aspire to come out in Fall of 2014, that was my hope and I should definitely have been more forthcoming with time changes when I knew I couldn’t make that deadline.


Here’s the good news: Aspire is underway and I have a new set of dates.  I am super excited about getting to wrap up the story of these three awesome friends.

February 1 – Sneak peek of the first chapter of Aspire: A Fairytale will debut here and on the Fairytale Trilogy site.

March 15 – Cover reveal!

May 19 – Aspire: A Fairytale releases.


Again, thank you all so much for your continued interest in Lilia’s story and for your support.


…And I can’t help a little sneak peek that I haven’t cleared with my cover designer, but she loves me so I hope she’ll forgive me…but cover art has been chosen…it features Lilia and she’s as gorgeous as expected. 🙂
