I was asked to come up with five reasons why everyone loves a small town romance. But the truth is, not everyone does. So this list is why Jill Shalvis Loves A Small Town Romance.

1. It’s a deceptively cozy arena. I like the sense of a close-knit community, but I also like the innate problems that come with living on the stage. Because in a small town, you ARE on the stage. Everyone’s watching.

2. I love writing a series of books that go together, and small towns lend themselves to this really well because everyone’s so nosy and involved, there’s always sequel bait.

3. I grew up in the big city of Los Angeles, but I dreamed about small town living for most of my life. It’s fun to put some of those fantasies to the page.

4. I now live in a very small town, which isn’t always nearly as cozy as I imagined. I might be rewriting history just a little bit just to please myself. Shh, don’t tell anyone.

5. I get a kick out of writing big, rugged, tough heroes. Not necessarily the boardroom type. More like strap on a tool belt or a gun belt… These alpha heroes lend themselves far better to a small town than the big city.

Ali Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she’s a thief, and now she’s about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who’s as sexy as he is stern….

After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke’s own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?
