  1. Wow Viv, I am so in awe that you, not only cornered our Jimmy, but grateful for the insights you discovered in your endeavors. As most are, I am fascinated by this generous and sexy man. His answers have endeared me even more to someone I already had huge respect for. It's not only that he is gorgeous, he's genuine.

    Love him. Love you. Thank you and Merry Christmas my friend.

  2. Good interview Viviane! It's always nice getting to know someone who is involved in our publishing world.

  3. Thank you, ladies. Yes, I agree, its nice to get to know the persdon behind the beautiful body. He is a charming man.


  4. Great interview! Nice to "meet" you, Jimmy! Always nice to put a personality to those awesome stock covers I see around. :D


  5. Re: "Beer or Wine"--"Whatever she is drinking"--smooth you sly dog. Not many know how wry and entertaining J.T. can be. Hi Jimmy *waves*. We had a great interview with Jimmy a time back ( ) and one covering a book cover shoot Mr Thomas did at the Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention in Orlando ( )
    He is smart and funny.
    Thanks for such an out of the box interview, Viv.

  6. @Viviane...Wonderful interview. Having Jimmy on several of my novels has been a treat. Readers are naturally drawn to them.

    @ Jimmy... I've always enjoyed your interviews. Knowing there's a really terrific man out in the world somewhere who is just as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside makes it easy to write heroes I know exist. Keep that bar raised high and good luck in your future endeavors.

    Happy Holidays!

  7. I met Jimmy at RT in Orlando. Definitely a gentleman. He's on the cover of one of my books, "What's in a Name?" (and was very nice about helping me find an appropriate image when I wanted one of him shirtless and wearing a tool belt, but he didn't have one on his site.)

  9. Viv, thanks for this post, it was so much fun. I had to laugh at some of Jimmy's answers just because he's so slick and confident. Go Team Jimmy Thomas!

  10. My favorite answer was: Whatever she's drinking to beer or wine. Sigh... That's a man who will melt my heart. Thumbs up to Jimmy. Viviane - awesome questions.


  11. Tsk tsk... no weigh in on a red head!? You breakest my poor heart! Mm hmm, I see how it is... ;)

    Great interview Viv!

  12. OMG - Viv...Jimmy? Wow. Impressive...His covers are what dreams are made of...seriously. He's a great hero in anyone's story. *smile*
