Kort biografi
Jill MacLean was born on 1941 in England, UK. In 1950, her family moved to Nova Scotia, Canada.

After receiving her Bachelor of Science with honours from Dalhousie University, she married. She worked at the Fisheries Research Board until her daughter was born. Following the birth of her son, she was employed by the pathology laboratory of Sydney City Hospital and the biology department of Mount Allison University. More recently, she completed a Masters in Theological Studies at the Atlantic School of Theology; her thesis juxtaposed Hebrew concepts of chaos in the book of Job with modern chaos theory.

When her husband joined the Armed Forces as a chaplain, she had to stop working. They moved three times in the first 18 months, the last move was to Prince Edward Island. By then her children were in school; she couldn't get a job; and at the local bridge club, she kept forgetting not to trump her partner's ace.

However, she had always loved to read, fascinated by the lure of being drawn into the other world of the story. So one day she bought a dozen Harlequin novels, read and analyzed them, then sat down and wrote one. Her first book, To Trust My Love, typed with four fingers, was published in 1974 as Sandra Field (she believes she's curiously the first Canadian to write for Harlequin). During the four years she lived in Prince Edward Island, she researched an 18th century French settlement located near present-day Brudenell, resulting in a historical book, Jean Pierre Roma, published in 1977 under her real name. She also started to write in collaboration with other Martimer writer under the pseudonym Jan MacLean. She also used to singed her novels the pseudonym of Jocelyn Haley. Her pseudonyms was an attempt to prevent the congregation from finding out what the chaplain's wife was up to in her spare time.

Before she turned 40, her life was changed, she had lost three of the most important women in her life: her mother and sister to illness, and her seventeen-year-old daughter to a car accident, and she separated from her husband in 1976. One of the lasting legacies of the grief caused by these losses has been the idea that it is impossible and undesirable to live every waking moment in the knowledge that loss can strike at any time.

She's been very fortunate for years to be able to combine a love of travel (particularly to the north - she doesn't do heat well) with her writing, by describing settings that most people will probably never visit. And there's always the challenge of making the heroine's long underwear sound romantic. Her novels has been translated into Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Swedish, Yugoslavian, Japanese... and sold in more than 90 countries. Her first collection of poetry, The Brevity of Red, was published in 2003. When her nine-years-old grandson, Stuart, asked him a book for him, she wrote her first Children's book and decided continued writing this type of books.

Jill now lives in Bedford, Nova Scotia, and she's lived most of her life in the Maritimes of Canada, within reach of the sea. Kayaking and canoeing, hiking and gardening, listening to music and reading are all sources of great pleasure. But best of all are good friends, some going back to high-school days, and her family. In Newfoundland, she has a beautiful daughter-in-law and the two most delightful, handsome, and intelligent grandchildren in the world (of course!).

'Wanted - cook. Starting Immediately. Apply at "Seawind"'

Lucy travelled to the Virgin Islands on a whim. Yet the moment she had seen the situation-vacant notice she knew she'd made the right decision: impulsiveness was only one of her weaknesses. The other was for tall, blond men - and her new boss, Troy Donovan, was the sexiest she had ever met! Unfortunately, he'd made it clear that he had no intention of letting anyone get close to him. It seemed Lucy had finally met her match, and fallen for the one man she couldn't have!… (mere)

A DESESPERADA LUTA DE UMA MULHER PARA DESCOBRIR A PRÓPRIA IDENTIDADE...

A BATALHA INCESSANTE DE UM HOMEM PARA ESQUECER A TRAGÉDIA DE SUA VIDA.

Olhares curiosos acompanharam os movimentos daquela mulher alta e elegante que caminhava pela calçada. Kate parou diante do edifício cinzento, tentando dominar o súbito medo que lhe apertava o coração. Ali morava o homem que se escondia nas sombras de seu pesadelo, a fera sem rosto em cujas garras se debatia, antes de ser lançada no abismo inescrutável... Ali descobriria a verdade sobre o mistério de sua vida...

Bryce parou o carro diante do prédio de tijolos aparente, mas não teve coragem de descer. Fazia três anos que repetia o mesmo percurso, todos os domingos, mês após mês. E sempre a mesma angústia o dominava, a desesperada vontade de fugir e enterrar de vez aquele lado clandestino de sua vida, aquele segredo que a ninguém queria revelar...

Decent story of a girl who switches places with a look a like for an adventure and then finds out that the other girl was a criminal. She gets kidnapped by a man who wants her to confess to planting drugs on his brother. She's pretty feisty and pretty soon they are in love but he's still not quite sure he believes she isn't the other girl. Decent story even if pretty lightly dealt with. If you like gutsy self assured heroines you should enjoy this one.

Another good HP. I've been lucky lately on that front. Here we have the very realistic set up of a woman who has been a firefighter for 10 years and who is getting burnt out with all the stress and tragedy. She saves the daughter of the hero from a fire and they find out that he is her cousin's ex husband who she had a crush on 15 years ago. But she hates him now because of the nature of his breakup with her cousin. He has the hots for her and tries a bunch of ways to get her into be with him. He is a very rich man and values that she doesn't want his money and keeps turning him down when he asks her out etc. That of course just eggs him on. He knows that she really means it and is not playing hard to get. She was much stronger than most HP heroines. She eventually gives in of course and ends up pregnant. What a shock! Good thing I like baby stories, so sue me. :-)

She takes a job as his daughters companion. This is one of the things that wasn't so perfect in the book. The daughter was written as a very self contained secretive child and the hero wants the heroine to help her be more outgoing. Which she does but it was sort of in a presto! kind of way and wasn't really dealt with realistically. Those sorts of children are that way for a reason even if it's just that they are wired that way and they don't change overnight. But there is only so much room in an HP so I'll forgive it.

My bigger problem with the story is it takes her so long to figure out that her cousin had lied about the breakup. The cousin had cheated and left him and voluntarily given up custody of the daughter. They way the relationship between the cousins was written, it was pretty ludicrous that this otherwise intelligent and grownup woman didn't believe the hero's side of the story pretty much immediately. But that conflict hung on for most of the book.

Still the book was very welll written, characters well developed and interesting. In fact they are some of the most fully realized characters I've read in an HP. I loved that she was a fire fighter and that she was portrayed as burnt out because I think that was extrememly realistic. POV from both characters helped with characterizations.

Recommended for HP readers.
