5 unique things about LanieLanie Winstead is everything but the typical romance heroine. Yes, she’s beautiful and on the sunny side of thirty, but beyond that she has qualities that are unique to her.
First, she grew up poor and unloved, but unlike many heroines, she saw no way out of poverty except education—and no way to get that education other than to strip at night and go to the University by day. Second, circumstances put her in a position of getting that education, a fine home and the respect she craved by pretending to be the loving wife of a gay senator—or losing what she was working to attain by possibly being framed for a crime she didn’t commit.
Next, she chooses to forego the open marriage benefits the senator offered, keeping the vows she made, until she realized eight years later that she wanted out—and she knew the senator did, too. Fourth, Lanie entered into an affair with JD, trying to keep the senator’s secrets that she’d sworn to protect even though he has broken the agreement. Finally she tries to protect JD after she is falsely charged with murder by begging her lawyer not to involve his friend JD—but of course JD is having none of that. (If he backed away in times of trouble he’d have been no hero at all!)
Lanie Winstead is sort of married to a senator who isn’t what he seems. And she’s carrying on a torrid affair with hot corporate lawyer JD Ackerman. Something’s got to give when her affair is brought to her inattentive husband’s attention.
But wait. Suddenly the senator is dead and secrets start unraveling as Lanie is accused of his murder.
JD will do anything—anything—to protect his lover, even if it means revealing a tangle of lies and deceptions that will tear them all asunder.
Inside Scoop: Contains a graphic gay BDSM scene, not for the faint of heart.

She is currently nominated for Romantic Times' 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in erotic romance, as well as having had books nominated by RT reviewers for best erotic romance.

A CPA and former hospital financial manager, Jacobs now writes full-time, with the help of Mr. Blue, the family cat who sometimes likes to perch on the back of her desk chair and lend his sage advice. He sometimes even contributes a few random letters when he decides he wants to try out the keyboard. (Most of the time Blue just curls up, hides his eyes with his paws...and sleeps!)
She loves to hear from readers, and to put faces with names at signings and conventions.
