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.

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.

I usually tire easily when reading the contemporary romance gender. Too mushy for my taste. Nevertheless, this novel kept me interested, especially because the author did not immediately dive into torrid sexual suggestions or scenes. Instead, I was presented with what seemed to be serious concerns and personal contradictions -- nature preservation vs. need for lumbering, safe elk hunting. Add a touch of mystery with a thriller twist.
The author's taste in sensual description was highlighted by her description of what a real nice man's butt must be -- one that completely fills a pair of jeans. As a result I can say that though there are some rather explicit sexual scenes, these are tasteful and leave enough to the reader's imagination. Sensuality, therefore, permeates the entire story.
I guess I may have forgotten a few things about sex, but I have always been intrigued by the "musky smell" concept -- it brings me the urge to shower the culprit!
Oh yes, love does end up the winner!

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.
