Jillian Neal - book author
Bestselling author, Jillian Neal, was not only born 30 but also came accessorized with loads of books and adorable handbags in which to carry them, at least that’s what she tells people. After earning a degree in education, she discovered that her passion could never be housed inside a classroom. A vehement lover of love and having maintained a lifelong affair with the awe-inspiring power of words, she set to turn the romance industry on its head. Her overly-caffeinated, troupe-spinning muse is never happy with the standard formula story. She believes every book should be brimming with passion, loaded with hot sexy scenes, packed with a gut-punch of emotion, and have characters that leap off the page and right into your heart.
Her first series, The Gifted Realm, defines contemporary romance with a fantasy twist. Her Gypsy Beach series will leave you longing to visit the sultry shores of the tiny bohemian beach town, and her erotic romance series, Camden Ranch, will make you certain there is nothing better than a cowboy with some chaps and a plan. The sheer amount of coffee required to keep all of those characters dancing in her head would border on lethal, so she unleashes their engaging stories on page after page of spellbinding reads.
Jillian lives outside of Atlanta with her own sexy sweetheart, their teenage sons, and enough stiletto heels, cowgirl boots, and flip-flops to exist in any of the fictional worlds she brings to life.

Until Austin Camden takes her to his bed…
Champion bull rider, Austin Camden, shows her just how much she’s been missing. His rugged good looks, whisky-smooth voice and very capable hands set her on fire. He has more bedroom skill than she ever believed could be housed in one man. If she isn’t careful, she may never recover.
If he plays his cards right…

He’ll risk it all…
To keep her and her son safe when their lives together are threatened. Keeping her sated and making her his forever is just a bonus.
Can he convince her Camden Ranch is where she belongs before it’s too late?
He’s spent the last ten years chasing that championship buckle.
He’s about to discover that the ride of his life will have nothing to do with a bull.
It’s a no holds barred fight to the finish to prove to Summer that their scorching hot relationship is better than winning any buckle.
Former Green Beret, Aaron Weber, is sexier than sin and twice as dangerous. He’s also war-weary and broken.
His friendship with Natalie has always been complicated.
He knows there are secrets she keeps hidden under that tough-girl façade. He also knows there is a more than enough soft heat and raw need deep within her to keep him satisfied.
When she asks Aaron to add benefits to their friendship, he agrees with a few conditions.
He’ll take her virginity all for himself and then teach her the power of submission.
She’ll show him how to loosen the binds of control he clings to.
The last thing either of them expected was the passion-ignited flashfire that burns bright enough to illuminate both of their dark pasts.
Aaron vows to find and destroy the man who hurt her.
Natalie seeks to understand the details of the mission that shattered him.
When her past threatens to make a reappearance on Camden Ranch, can she learn to trust him enough to keep her safe?
This is where I normally put a tongue-in-cheek warning about my sexy cowboys. While, Last Call, like all of the Camden Ranch novels that have come before it, has lots and lots of bed-breaking love scenes (no, seriously, there is a broken bed) it also deals with a few other things.
These are things I want to make certain none of my beloved readers might trigger from. This book deals with both Post Traumatic Stress from Aaron Weber’s missions in the Middle East and from the sexual abuse Natalie Camden endured during her childhood.
I tried with everything I am to handle each of these issues with a tremendous amount of respect, sympathy, grace, and dignity and I made certain there are no graphic descriptions of either event.
I always want my novels to be a sexy escape (and never to cause anyone any pain) so I wanted to make certain my readers are aware of what they’ll find between the covers of this book – one sizzling hot former Green Beret, one strong and sassy cowgirl, sexual discovery and erotic intimacy, every single member of the Camden family, a lot of laughter, a few heart wrenching moments, and a tremendous amount of healing and strength.
No one has ever stirred Indie’s soul the way Luke does, but even his sinfully good looks and supreme bedroom skill can’t keep her tied down. Nothing lasts forever. Her mother proved that point when she tore their family apart.
It doesn’t matter how good she and Luke have always been together; returning to the town where everything shattered around her is out of the question. Except for the fact that Luke has challenged her to a two-week, no-limits homage to the finer points of sex, and Indie knows even her stubborn resolve may not survive.
Her headstrong ways and his cool, steady hand may set the entire Midwest ablaze. Luke is about to learn that there are some storms you run from and some storms you chase, and that Indie Harper is the one girl he just can’t let get away.
This time, he’s not stopping until she’s his forever, no matter what gets in his way.
Finding out her fiancé was a cheating liar just before walking down the aisle and becoming a runaway bride wasn’t part of the plan.
Driving her getaway car right into the hitch on rough and rugged cattleman Grant Camden’s truck wasn’t either…
Until she lays eyes on the sinfully sexy cowboy who becomes her knight-in-dirty-boots.
Grant Camden knows what he likes and he knows how to get it. A city-girl whose daddy is the Chief of Police isn’t exactly his shot of whiskey.
But the curvy little spit-fire definitely gets under his skin.
What should any cowboy worth his salt do when a runaway bride runs right into his arms?
Steal her away to Camden Ranch where he can unlock her secrets, unbutton that gown, loosen her bounds, and undo her thoroughly.
When the nights turn hotter than a prairie brushfire, Grant has to wonder if he can make this city-girl all his own.
He has a job to do. A mission he’d rather bury six feet under right along with the man who ruined his life.

When Colton’s eyes rake over her body, she occasionally forgets her family’s world is resting on her shoulders.
He wants to help her almost as much as he wants to take her to his bed to teach her how to ride wild-cowgirl style.
