RITA WATCH: Save The Date.....


Thanks for invinting me over to the Craftie Ladies of Romance Blog! I'm very excited to be a Rita finalist. My name is Save The Date, and I am authored by Jenny B. Jones and published by Thomas Nelson.

When were you born? 
February 1,  2011

Where were you born? 
Charleston, North Carolina

Do you have any brothers and sisters?
I'm blessed with many siblings including There You'll Find Me, Just Between You and Me and several young adult novels such as So Not Happening and So Over My Head who are part of the Charmed Life Series. Our family is known for being humorous while telling a powerful story. That's probably because our author is a high school teacher and a very funny lady herself. 

What do you think made you a RITA finalist?
I think readers identify with my heroine, Lucy, who wants to build a home for girls who are transitioning out of foster care. She is determined to see her project through, but the hero stands in her way. Former NFL star Alex Sinclair is a man who has it all-except the votes he needs to win this bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Luch a proposition: pose as his fiancee in return for the money she desperately needs for her girls home. Bound to a man who isn't quite what he seems, Lucy will find her heart on the line-and maybe even her life. When God asks Alex and Lucy to scrap their playbook and follow His rules, will they finally say, "I do"?  You'll have to read my story to see.

Thank you for being with us today, Save the Date. 
Congratulations on being a Rita Finalist! We are all so happy for you!
