About the Author

Jacqueline currently lives in Sitka, Alaska...a tiny fishing town with a drinking problem is the standard joke. She moved back to Sitka following a job, but had lived there when she was just a baby and where her sister was born. Jacque was born in Oklahoma and has lived in Colorado, California, Washington, Idaho, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii and Iceland. Some of these places she has lived because she was stationed there while serving in the US Navy for 7 years from 1980-1988. She loves to travel, meet new people and hopes that her writing reflects her love of details and the places she has been. She is an avid reader and loves photography. As always, Jacque hopes you have enjoyed reading her books.

More About the Author

Jacqueline was born in Durant, OK, and is now a displaced Okie with a bit of Choctaw blood living in Idaho. Since her father was a bit of a nomad, she got the travelling bug early on and incorporates these places in her stories. And as a Jacque of all trades, some of her employment opportunities may be found in her writing as well.

She says that if she were stranded on a beautiful, always sunny, beach-filled island where the temperature was always around 70 degrees (anyone know of a place like that?), she would take her favorite authors along for the ride: Kathleen E. Woodiwiss and June Lund Shiplett, Stephen King, Patricia Cornwell, Tess Gerritsen, Brooklyn Hudson, Tami Hoag, Lisa Jackson, James Patterson, Sydney Sheldon, and Janet Evanovich. Of course she would have to have access to wifi for her kindle so she can keep finding great indie authors to read, too.

Her first book, Wilderness Heart, she published in March 2011, and in December 2011 it was a recommended read on USA Today's Happy Ever Blog.

She loves to hear from people and fans of her writing. You can connect with her here: iam14choctaw@hotmail.com or follow her on twitter @jacquehopkins.

Some love affairs go through periods of misunderstanding and strife, and some flow with amazing ease. The main characters in Jacqueline Hopkins' debut novel, "Wilderness Heart", trek through the frozen mountains of Idaho County, finding heartbreak, passion and hope along their way. Lyn Taylor is a ferociously independent hunting guide, an oddity in a world of men, elk and guns. She's loyal and steadfast, which probably keeps her engaged to a man she clearly doesn't love. Lyn is a noble character, quietly mouring her mother's death a few years earlier, and making sure she keeps her father's business afloat while he, too, deals with his loss.

Jacqueline Hopkins knows the world where she's placed her characters. Her descriptions of the smells of coffee, forests and horses in the cold dawns of Nez Perce National Forest are crisp and believable; I was transported to a world I knew little about until I read this book. Lyn's love for her mountains and animals, the expert ease with which she traipses through the crevices of the National Forest feel real. I clearly shared her shock when she was faced with her most challenging customer ever: a handsome stranger named Nic Randall.

Ms. Hopkins has written a story that initially reads like a romance, but has a mystery/thriller brewing underneath the passionate exchanges between the main characters. No one is quite whom they seem to be, and no feelings are thoroughly disclosed until the very end. Readers are compelled to turn the pages to unveil who Nic really is, what his motives are, and how much of a rival he might be to Brad, Lyn's elusive fiance. "Wilderness Heart" pits the main characters against danger and deception, but unerneath the plot is a wonderfully beating heart.

Kudos to Ms. Hopkins for creating appealing, interesting characters and offering us the beautiful backdrop of the mountains and forests she describes so elegantly.

Jacqueline Hopkins' first romance is a lively tale about the world of wilderness outfitters. Lyn Taylor is an Idaho outfitter who struggles with being a woman in a man's world where many men don't want a woman on their hunting trip, let alone having one guide them. Lyn also has problems with the men in her private life, even her father, wanting to change her into someone more ladylike (they don't like her swearing and smoking). Can she find true love with a man who will accept her for who she is, or will she have to change? If you enjoy strong, independent women in rugged settings, you'll enjoy Wilderness Heart.

Having lived in Idaho and knowing of the places mentioned in this book, made the story seem to be based on non-fiction rather than fiction. It is a story that makes you want to keep reading to see what happens to the main characters--you think you know what is going to happen, but then, situations change and you begin to wonder if the story is taking a different turn. I also had to keep reading to see if anything about the characters was based on anyone I may have known---and yes---I renewed memories of two people I knew well!
The author does well in bringing her characters to life and keeping the reader's attention. For a first book, I give it 4 stars!

If you like the mountains you will like this book.This book has both fiction and facts. It was a refreshing book giving both the reality of the wilderness and enough fiction to make it a good book..I really enjoyed it and have read it twice...Love it Jacqueline keep up the good work.

This is a wonderful book, set in an interesting location. Vivid descriptions give the reader a sense of being right there. The dialog is believable and moves the story along. Many plot twists kept this reader reading long into the night. The main characters were much like some real people O know, and I really enjoyed the witty dialog they exchanged. The secondary characters were integral to the story and were quite likable as well. All in all a fun read. Looking to much more from this talented author!

This story was a soft romance with waves of dark secrets, lies, betrayal and forgiveness between an assertive female and what she thought was an arrogant hunter, Nic Randall. Lyn knew what she desires for her life and that was to stay independent and not become a puppet to another. Not to lose her identify and dreams of being an operator and guide for her family outfitting service.

Lyn Taylor is fierce and loyal to herself, father who was grieving for his lost wife and decides that she is responsible to keep the family business alive while her dad went through his period of grief. She is engaged to a man 12 years older than her age. He is becoming restless and showing his true colours and desires she quit her career and become his wife. She is torn in two does she settle down with a demanding man or break free and be her own person.

In the midst of the fork in the road, she has to prove herself to the males' species she was an experienced hunter and guide and some of the paying male customers are not pleased to have a woman guiding them into the rugged setting.

She may have met her match, with Nic Randall at first appearance who came off as a rude woman hater with his complaints about women were not able to be good company in the wilderness. His arguments, they could not be quiet and chase the prey away, wore too much make-up and even bought an electric hair dryer with them in the wilderness where there was no electricity, which did not make sense to him. He was turned off with inviting woman on hunts with him.

She was different and has to prove herself to this hard headed man that she was the opposite of what he perceived women to be in the wilderness.
