My Writing

I've been writing since 2002. I've tried to stop but couldn't. So I joined the RNA, went to conferences and indulged my obsession instead. Here's a peek at what's in my writing cupboard...

Off Limits Lover
Out now on kindle

Originally published by Moonlit Romance as Taking The Leap,  this was the first book I ever had accepted by a publisher. I'm delighted that it's now come back to life with the very wonderful www.escapewithabook.com! Here's what the reviewers had to say:

Judy Jarvie writes an excellent romance about two people who are so real we can't help but relate to them in some way. This is a unique taile as it tells of people who have adopted because of infertility. This is a superb romance with some suspense. It's set in a small village in Scotland with dialect and local color that enhance the tale. *****The Romance Studio


And here's some blurb:

Practice nurse Anya Fraser's adopted son is at the centre of her life. But when her new senior partner, Dr Max Calder arrives at work, distracting her in too many ways, suddenly her anti-relationship mantra isn't working. Max volunteers to help her succeed at the charity parachute jump she's so terrified of and attraction simmers from the off. Taking a leap of faith has never proved so scary nor so attractive -- how will they cope with the challenge of working together and taking to the skies? And resisting a future their pasts taught them to avoid?

Nanny Behaving Badly
Out now on kindle
Wanted: Nanny Behaving Badly



Waitress Maddie Adams hits black ice when she shocks her new boss, hot coffee king Lyle Sutherland, then agrees to be his son's SOS nanny. It seems like the perfect solution to his childcare dilemma. But strong, silent-type Lyle is soon left reeling by his son's sassy new nanny. Is off-limits attraction a 'naughty step' penalty? Can Maddie resist bad behaviour with the boss?


"If you like the characters you are reading about to grab you by the throat and pull you into their world, then this is a book to pick up and enjoy. Be warned, that once you open the first page, you may be reluctant to put it down until you turn the last one, so be prepared to give yourself plenty of time when you start reading. Some books you enjoy, and say 'ahh' when you put it down, some books you enjoy and pass on, and some.. like this one you add to your 'keeper' list." Jay Essay, The Romance Studio - Five Hearts Rating

Cyber sparks...combustible consequences

Felicity Truro's diary is fast filling up with problems. First there's the ugliest bridesmaid's dress in the world, then there's her sick aunt's serious secret. But it's Rod McAllister, the handsome firefighter best man with attitude, who's melting her willpower and frazzling her nerves the most.

Can Flick survive being a bridesmaid for the eleventh time whilst falling for the groom's aide for real? And how will she cope when Rod needs a stand-in and she's promoted to top of the candidate list?


"Combine a hot man in uniform and a not-so-mousy librarian and sparks will fly! This story is a cute little romance that will delight any reader."
Carole, The Romance Reviews
 
"A unique read that I wished could have been longer. It ended well with a change in Felicity's role in the wedding party, and a surprise just for her. It is a book that everyone should take the opportunity to read." Bec, The Romance Studio
