Welcome! I'm Jean Joachim. I write contemporary romance from the sets of Hollywood to Broadway stage to the football gridiron. My stories are set in small towns and the Big Apple.

Looking for books to fill up your Kindle? How about a series about the men and women of Hollywood? 

 Here's the series starter. It's' free.

 Fresh-faced quarterback Mark thinks he’s scored a touchdown after winning actress Penny Thatcher’s affection. But a public revelation soon threatens his chances…. Is love the one game he can’t win? A charming will-they-won’t-they romance.

Here's a bit about the first book in the series. 

Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. A successful financial advisor, Meg was shocked when she was selected to launch a celebrity division for her investment firm.
Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance.

Welcome to NYC at Christmas. Let's start with the Museum of Natural History and their origami Christmas tree. All the animal
ornaments are made from folded paper - origami. 

Let's head downtown to Lord & Taylor's, where they have festive windows of holiday scenes with moving figures, music and a charming story. 
Here are a few scenes from those windows.

 It looks real, but it's only a department store window.

Another scene from Lord & Taylor's

Charming, isn't it?

One more. Now let's head down to Rockefeller Center and take a look at a few life-sized angels.


Now a bit from my book about Christmas in New York City, Champagne for Christmas.

Nina closed her eyes and ran her hands up his pecs and over his shoulders. When he lifted his head, her lips closed over his. As she pushed her breasts up against his chest, he bore down on her, his tongue stroking hers, his big hands trapping her small ones, pushing them above her head and into the pillowy softness. Nina felt desire rise in her body, coursing through her veins, landing in her core, pooling between her legs.

“I love you.” His words were raspy and breathy.

Clint shifted his weight to his side, freeing up his hand to glide down Nina’s body. He started at her shoulder, stopped to squeeze her breast gently, then continued down her hip to her thigh. Nina opened her legs. He moved his hand to her inner thigh then up into her slick heat and closed his eyes.

“Oh, God,” she moaned, almost paralyzed by the need * in her. She slid her hand down his hip and closed her fingers around him.

His eyes popped open. “Oh, baby!” He eased two fingertips into her in response.

She gasped, her hips instinctively arching toward him, wanting more. He pumped in and out of her slowly, making her body rise and fall with him. Her hand tightened on him, moving along with his rhythm.

“Ready?” he whispered.
“God,” she muttered, her eyes closed.


Champagne for Christmas is ON SALE for $.99 until January. What people are saying:

About the book: Can a craving for mint chip ice cream and a passion for the theater keep a summer romance hot through an icy winter? Champagne for Christmas is a story with a happy ending you’ll never see coming.
