Spotlight on Jean C. Joachim and If I Loved You

My guest today is author Jean C. Joachim. Jean and I spent some time together chatting about books at the recent Romfest convention and I'm here to tell you, her enthusiasm for Hollywood Hearts comes shining through. Her passion for this series is certainly warranted!

If I Loved You, a Hollywood Hearts romance, is one for the keeper shelf! 

Today, Jean sat down with one of her characters from Hollywood Hearts. You'll enjoy her interview! 

Welcome Jean! 

If I Loved You (Hollywood Hearts 1)

The following interview and blurb were provided by the author


Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight, Megan Davis kept her family secret safe. Disrespectful of tabloid superstars, Meg was shocked when selected to launch a celebrity division in her investment firm. Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan valued privacy above all else. Drawn to Megan for more than financial advice, will he share a secret or continue his high profile but lonely existence? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance.   


1.      Why do you hate Megan Davis?

That little twit got the job I was supposed to get. She was made vice president and she’s a newbie. I’ve been with Dillon and Weed for two years. Her job was supposed to be mine!

2.      Do you have a love interest or are you forced to be alone?

If that little tramp, Megan, would leave, I’d move in on hottie Chaz Duncan in a heartbeat. He’d never know what hit him. *chuckles*.

3.      Do you have any annoying habits your author didn’t share with us?

If I did, do you think I’d be stupid enough to put them in an interview with you? *snorts* What kind of jackass do you take me for?

4.      Did you get the revenge you wanted?

Yeah! *wears evil grin*

5.      Are you happy with the profession your author chose for you and why?

It’s okay. I’d rather be a fashion model and I got the rack for it, too.

6.      Would you like to be taller, blonder, thinner or smarter than you have been portrayed?

Nah. My body is perfect. Great double DD’s, gorgeous face. Brilliant evil mind. What more could any man want?

7.      Are you planning to make an appearance in a sequel?

I’ve been replaced in the rest of the books in the series. But we’re going to have a villains reunion once that idiot, Jean, finally finishes the last book. I’m a little ticked off that Gunther Quill, villain from book four got his own book. Hey, Jean! When am I gonna have my own book? *shakes a fist at the author*

8.      Now for a personal question. Did you get any sex in the book? Was it enough or would you have liked more?

I got some with that moron, Andy. But it was better than none.

9.      Did you get to kiss the hero/heroine?

No, and I’m ticked about it, too!

10.  Did you spread any nasty rumors?

Didn’t have to. The media did it for me. Suckers.

11.  Did you lie?

Hell, yeah! What kind of villain would I be if I didn’t lie?

12.  How many re-writes did you have to live through?

Too many! Jean needs to focus better.

13.  Did your author listen to you when you tried to redirect her/him?

Not one bit. I didn’t get anything I wanted. Well, except to sleep with Andy. He’s not very experienced but had good staying power.

14.  Do you want your story to become a series with you as a recurring character?

That would be a dream come true. Jean’s already told me though, never gonna happen.

15.  Any final words?

When you read the book, remember how ingenious I was. How clever. I’m a huge step above the average, stupid villain – and a whole lot prettier. Finally got my say.

About the author: 

Jean Joachim, wife and mother of two sons, is owned by a rescued pug, named Homer. She’d been writing non-fiction for what seemed like forever until she got up the nerve to try fiction. It was love. Now she spends her days in New York City in the company of her characters, with a cup of tea and a secret stash of black licorice.
