She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.

RELEASE DATE: February 15, 2016
From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
Author’s note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

The heat building between them is ready to erupt, threatening to shatter the wall around a soldier’s heart.
Former Green Beret, Zackary “Sin” Sinclair has a secret nipping at his heels. And he’ll do anything—go anywhere—to keep that info locked down tight. Including playing along with the news that he’s the father of his best friend’s little sister’s baby. But there’s no way in hell that’s possible since he hasn’t touched a woman in years. That, and his best friend has no idea Sin’s been hiding the fact he’s gay since they were teenagers.
KinKaid Wolf Pack Enforcer, Aydin Michaels is his cousin’s new pet project. If he doesn’t sober up and fall in line, he’ll be kissing his new career goodbye, and more than likely, packing up to head back east. The last thing he needs is a smokin’ hot human male with eyes that turn him inside out trying to play his hero.
When a bar fight goes wrong and Sin ends up bitten, Aydin is charged with tracking him down—before he shifts—and educating him about those in the world who aren’t quite human. Rule number one: in order to survive, shifters stick together. But convincing the hardheaded soldier on the run to stay put, preferably with him, is easier said than done. For Sin, putting down roots means paying a price. He either betrays a friend and risks losing the only family he’s ever known, or walk away from the man who’s claimed a piece of his soul.
Jessica Lee is an EPIC eBook Award winner and international bestselling author of paranormal romance. She lives in the southeastern United States with her husband and son. In her former life, Jessica was a science geek and spent over twenty-five years as a nurse. But after the birth of her son, she left her medical career behind. During that transition, she discovered her passion for writing romance and has never looked back. Jessica Lee is currently published with Entangled Publishing and Resplendence Publishing. Plus she has several self published titles available.
That plan is Soren Birgir, kind of quiet, kind of cute—okay, gorgeous. He’s a lab rat working for Head Office, studying the creatures brought in, but also a paranormal himself. Jessica can’t put her finger on exactly what he is, but it’s something big and powerful, and one wrong word from her could put him in a box next to hers. Strangely, Soren doesn’t resist. Maybe that crush he’d seemed to have on her had been the real deal after all. Well, that was a downer. He was handsome, and she liked kissing him—really liked it—but Jessica couldn’t afford to get close. She couldn’t afford to be swept away whenever Soren did something that made her heart ache.
Like stand up for her and protect her. The feeling it brought made her weak in the knees. Weak enough to desire him, to want to escape with him. Something that would be entirely impossible. Unless a miracle happened, one person would have to stay for the other to go, and Jessica was determined that it be her, even if it ripped her heart in half to do it. Her powers were over the cold, so it wasn’t a stretch that she could make her heart cold to her feelings long enough to leave Soren behind. Right?

Let Me Play A Trick On You – coming soon!
Favorite authors right now are anyone who writes dangerous and tortured heroes 😉
1: I like drawing, painting and coloring but am no good at any of them
2: My best writing day is nearly 12K words in one day
3: Despite writing lots of erotic books, I actually really love to read the Teen Genre best 🙂
4: I have over a hundred and twenty erotic M/M novellas published with Siren Publishing as Marcy Jacks. Most of them involving werewolves and male pregnancies, because those are fun 🙂
5: I want to go back to college and take an illustration course to improve those art skills I’m no good at.
6: One day I would like to make short comics or fun illustrations for my books
7: For a couple of months, I went to the Michael’s art store every day with one of their 40% off coupons to buy expensive markers since buying them all at once was too expensive. That’s how committed I am to a deal. #Cheap
8: When I went to New Orleans for RT in 2014, I think I was the only one there who couldn’t eat the food because of food sensitivities
9: The cab driver said the alligator meat was really just for tourists anyway.
10: I love video games. I’ve had to become more of a casual gamer to keep up with my word count, but I still love video games. Anything from japan with bouncing boob graphics is awesome (don’t let anyone tell you different), and when I played Mass Effect 3, I completed it 3 times. When I played Dragon Age Origins, I completed it twice (it’s 50 hour game BTW) and Dragon Age Two I completed three times so I could romance Anders twice and Fenris once. To my great shame I only have 75 hours clocked onto Destiny and have yet to play Taken King. Lately, I prefer Hatsune Miku games. They’re quick and fun for busy writers like me 🙂 OSU! Online is the best online rhythm game there is, and it’s free. Look into it! I want someone to play with!
11: It depresses me when I buy games and no longer have time to play them. Xenoblade Chronicles remains unopened, and sadly, so does Dying Light and Alien for the PS4 😦
12: My favorite thing to do is torture my heroes, though that annoys some readers for some reason.
13: My favorite book boyfriends are also super tortured and bad ass. My brother hates the trope of the bad guy becoming good, but I love it.
14: I hate cooking and doing the dishes. That’s why I bought an air fryer, though the apartment doesn’t have space for a dishwasher.
15: In Canadian Winter, I keep grumbling about training the dog to use the toilet, but like a bad parent, never follow through with the threat.
16: Seriously, I can cook things decently, but whenever it comes to cooking in the oven, or baking something, be wary if I’m serving to you. I’ve given people food poisoning before, and to this day don’t know how it happened.
17: One thing I use to entertain myself would be to plan my own funeral. Not for real, but just casually. I like to think that I’d have a Ferris wheel there, with an ice cream vendor and carnival games for the kids, with toys and prizes everywhere. The best thing ever would be the piñata. It would look like a cartoon dead me, with crossed out eyes and my tongue sticking out. Hanging from the neck of course, and all the children would be invited to have a whack at it until the guts split open with gummy worms and other gross candies for them to gnaw on. I think a comedian telling sexist jokes, especially death jokes, would really liven that funeral up. Get it? Liven. People would leave that funeral satisfied for the fun they’d had and sad that I couldn’t die a second time so they could go again next year or something.
18: Sometimes I write over 120K words per month. I pretty much want to kill everything those months.
19: I’m working on a new paranormal series now. December 2015 is going to be one of those months where I want to kill everything. Except for my dog, of course.
20: Hoping to have the first in that series released in mid March. God, that would be awesome.
21: I’m also co-writing a series of tween books with my brother. So far only one is finished. Another one of those kill-everything months is apparently on the horizon
22: Star Wars rules. Haters can suck it. 😉 (hate the prequels all you like, however. Those are open territory as far as I’m concerned)
23: Because I waste too much time on Youtube, I’ve turned into one of the Starbucks people I used to make fun of and hate. It’s the only place I can work quickly now despite the noise. Then one day I looked up, realized I was a regular customer and had a Goddamn Apple device just like everyone else at the table. A piece of me died that day.
24: I love their Caramel Soy Frappucinos, but also hate myself a little for loving them.
25: Last fun fact! Did you know that if you hop on over to: http://www.mandyrosko.com/contact.php
and if you sign up for my newsletter, I will send you a starter library which as of this writing has (gasp!) three free PNR books!
(It’s actually two books and a novella, but I’m trying to be all impressive, here)

He promised to stay away…but some promises are made to be broken
Plain-Jane computer programmer Khloe Richardson needs a date—one to make the prince of her dreams jealous. Maybe then he’ll finally see her as a desirable swan and not the ugly duckling in the second office from the left.
But when she bids on a bachelor at a charity auction, the man she wins is millionaire Niall Hunter—who once made intense, passionate love to her and then left without a word. She’s determined not to let her guard down again—among other things—around the infamous Irish lothario.
Niall never imagined his penance for one hot-as-hell night with his best friend’s little sister would be transforming her from a shy wallflower to a sultry siren. Helping her attract another man is torture…especially when he promised his friend he’d stay away. Plus, she wants forever, and he’s not a forever kind of guy. But Niall can’t stop wanting her. Can’t stop touching her. Can’t stop, period. And damn if he can remember why he has to…
