Welcome to Jacki Delecki!

Here on the Beach, we are pleased to announce a new author has pulled up her chaise lounge and become part of our sisterhood. Drum Roll please...

JACKI DELECKI, a Bestselling Author in Historical Romance and Romantic Suspense, is now a part of BEACH READ AUTHORS and we are pleased to add this dynamic novelist to our group.

Her new box set Historical Romance Series-- Code Breakers-- recently hit the top ten in all Amazon Books!!!!

Jacki's fast-paced writing style makes her novels perfect for beach reads and we know you're going to love the Grayce Walters Series as well as the fabulous Code Breaker Series. Jacki's Amazon Page

Here's the scoop on Jacki!

Descended from a long line of storytellers, Jacki spins adventures filled with suspense, healing, and romance. 

Jacki's love affair with the arts began at a young age and inspired her to train as a jazz singer and dancer. She has performed many acting roles with Seattle Opera Company and Pacific Northwest Ballet.
Her travels to London and Paris ignited a deep-seated passion to write the Regency Code Breaker Series. Jacki is certain she spent at least one lifetime dancing in the Moulin Rouge.

Jacki has set her Grayce Walters Mystery Series in Seattle, her long-time home. The city's unique and colorful locations are a backdrop for her thrilling romantic suspense. Although writing now fills much of her day, she continues to volunteer for Seattle's Ballet and Opera Companies and leads children's tours of Pike Street Market.

Her volunteer work with Seattle's homeless shelters influenced one of her main characters in An Inner Fire and Women Under Fire. Next in the series, Men Under Fire will be release in May, 2015.

Jacki's two Golden Labs, Gus and Talley, were her constant companions. Their years of devotion and intuition inspired her to write dogs as main characters alongside her strong heroines.

A geek at heart, Jacki loves superhero movies--a hero's battle against insurmountable odds. But her heroines don't have to wear a unitard to fight injustice and battle for the underdog.

Look for more heart-pounding adventure, intrigue, and romance in Jacki's Code Breakers Series. 

A Code of Love is the first book in the series. A Christmas Code--A Regency Novella, and A Code of the Heart are now available at all retail sites.
