Lifers by Jane Harvey-Berrick
Released Feb. 7th, 2014
435 pages
ISBN 9780957496187

After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn’t changed since he was sent away. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn’t even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can time or distance erase the pain of living?

Torrey Delaney is new in town, and certainly doesn’t behave in a way the locals believe a preacher’s daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex quickly spreads. And that’s on top of her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman—the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter’s path.

As friendship forms, can two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan’s demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey’s walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, they struggle to find their place in the world. Can they battle the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?

I’m aware that you are a British novelist but most of your books are in an American voice. Was that difficult and how did you overcome it?

Surprisingly it wasn’t difficult, although I still include Britishisms without realizing it. My fabulous beta reader ruthlessly cuts them out!

When I’m reading your novels I find that you are so descriptive in your locale that I feel like I’m really there. Have you actually traveled to all these places?

I spent two months living in Minnesota when I was 21, but no – most of the places I haven’t visited. That’s where the research comes in. Someone asked me if I’d been a foreign correspondent in Afghanistan because of the way I’d written that section in The Education of Caroline. I was VERY proud of that.

I see on the social networks how readers see Sebastian and Daniel. I would love to know how you picture them. Have you worked from a muse, and if so, give me pictures please!

HA HA HA! I’ve seen a lot of pix that readers have put together and some come VERY close. But no, I don’t have a muse. It’s all in my head. Is that scary?

About the author:
I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene.

Turns out I can!

My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.

My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.

Readers can find bonus chapters for several of my books on my website www.janeharveyberrick.com

    Thanks for hosting a tour stop!

    I do think she does really well in capturing a place that she’s never been to. In Lifers she also did really well with the accent.

  2. Thanks so much! If you’ve got any more questions, feel free! jx
