My Heart For Jill

Book One In The Mountain Mama Series

This was one of the most important things in Chef Jill Dennison's life. Her successful restaurant and weekly cooking shows were second only to her family. However, she had spent most of her life fighting the stigma of living as a tall, curvaceous West Virginia girl. Having had her heart broken and her self-esteem trashed by a rich, affluent fiancé, she was certainly not looking for love when Nick Wallace was pushed into her life. A case of mistaken identity by Jill's mother, Nick was forced to compete in a live cooking competition with Jill's alter ego, Mountain Mama.

Nick was recently relocated to this small West Virginia town from New York City to oversee the building of a tourist mountain resort as part of his family's hotel empire. A single dad and world-renowned pianist, he never dreamed he would land in the spotlight with this unusual woman who managed to surprise him over and over again. Having come from a cold unloving family, he felt himself drawn to Jill's warm, loving one.

Join Jill, Nick, and a host of other colorful characters as they learn that everything is not always as it seems on the surface. At Mountain Mama's, many surprises await and love abounds as they seek to form those ties that bind in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia.
