Christmastime on Donner’s Mountain by Laura Strickland

Love Christmas Romance? Authors share their best @laurarmcneil @LauraSt05038951 @melissamcclone #ChristmasRomance #RLFblogFor most of her life, Becca Monroe’s been running. The urge to see what lay beyond the next horizon took her away from Donner’s Mountain and the man she loved. Now, back for what will surely be her grandfather’s last Christmas, she’s caught in a tangle of unresolved emotions that leave her torn between the impulse to flee and the desire to stay.

Jack Donner never stopped loving Becca, even though she deserted him. Better than anyone else, he knows how cruel it would be to fetter her wild spirit, and he doubts she could ever be happy living in one place, on his mountain.

Can memories of Christmases past remind Becca what truly matters? And can love convince Jack to give her one more chance, even if it means risking his battered heart?

The Wish Maker by Melissa McClone

Love Christmas Romance? Authors share their best @laurarmcneil @LauraSt05038951 @melissamcclone #ChristmasRomance #RLFblogAt Christmas, sometimes even impossible wishes come true…

One word changed Wes Lockhart’s life forever. Cancer. Fighting for his life completely flipped his priorities, making him realize he wanted—no, needed—to use his billions to help others find the kind of second chance he’d been given. The first person he intended to help? The beautiful, kind, and dedicated oncologist who got him through his treatments and ushered him into remission. And what better time than the holidays to become her not-so-secret Santa?

Dr. Paige Regis has spent her entire career helping others, often at the expense of her personal life. She’d love to start a family of her own—but with her current patients and her plans to open a brand-new cancer center, it seems like an impossible dream. It’s not until she reconnects with the charming Wes that she realizes he might just be the man to make all her Christmas wishes come true.

Can Wes and Paige open their hearts to the magic of the season—and each other—to get a shot at their very own Christmas miracle? Or will past hurts and doubts end their happily ever after before it even begins?

Meet Kelly Shepherd from One Woman Only by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romanceWelcome Kelly Shepherd from One Woman Only by Dee S Knight, a new erotic romance.

Meet Kelly Shepherd

Age: 36

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Lucky Strike, North Carolina

Profession: Teacher

Ethnicity: Human

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I have green eyes and strawberry blonde hair that I’ve let grow down to my shoulders. I’m 5 feet, 6 inches and slender, though I always think I need to lose a few pounds. I run, so I have good strength in my legs, but I could stand to lift a few weights.

Please tell us a little about your character.

For most of my life I’ve been pretty lackadaisical about things. Really important things like what to do with myself. I always wanted to be a part of my family business—who knows why, except that it would get the attention of my father and I thought I’d be good at it. But my dad gave all of that to my brother, assuring me that women weren’t good at business. Did I go out and prove him wrong? No. My parents thought they knew the best man for me to marry. I wanted to please them so I gave in. It took me years to grow a spine, and now I’m not aiming low for anyone, including the man I’ve loved since high school.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?

Jonah Goodman. He’s a triplet but he couldn’t be more different than his brothers, though they are all good guys. Jonah has always been the one let life roll off his back, never taking it or commitment to anything seriously. Strangely, those traits are why I’ve always loved him and also why we have no future.

How educated is this character? Is she book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?

Kelly has a BA and an MBA. When she still was blocked from her family business, she went back for another master’s degree in education so she could teach second grade.

Does she scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

She lives comfortably. She grew up as part of the town’s wealthiest family, so she lived a very nice lifestyle. Then she married a well-heeled attorney. Since her divorce, she’s lived off her teacher salary but she has a comfortable nest egg from an inheritance from her grandmother to back her up in any emergency.

What is your character’s viewpoint on wealth? Not necessary, nice to have, important, obtain at all costs?

She is not affected by wealth, but she appreciates the attitude it takes to make a success of life. When she is finally handed the reins of the family legacy as it’s about to fall into bankruptcy, she needs and uses her inheritance to get it started again. To her, that’s the value of money, that it can help in a good cause.

What is your character’s family like?

Kelly’s parents are still living and she has one brother, Robbie. Her mother is cold and reserved and her father, while he has always provided for the family has never given her more than a passing glance in the affection department. Robbie, a few years younger than Kelly enjoyed his place of male importance in the household, proving how little he cared for things when he goes off to “find himself” instead of taking over the business when it needed him. Kelly would have had an awful childhood and teen years if it hadn’t been for her family’s housekeeper and the Goodmans. She got lots of love and attention from Jonah’s parents and from Mama Rio, her housekeeper and friend.

Is she close to family?

No. Only to Mama Rio.

Does she have children?

She has a roomful of children each day when she arrives at school! But she doesn’t have any of her own. That was her only regret in her marriage.

What secrets does your character know about people around him that he does NOT share?

Her father embezzled from the company. It’s not a true secret, though. She’s told Jonah.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

She’s happy at the first, satisfied, if not exactly happy, with her life as it is. Things change when she goes home for Thanksgiving and her parents announce that they expect her to take control of the company.

What is your heroine’s biggest hopes and dreams?

To be happy with a man she loves and have a child. She doesn’t regret divorcing her no-good husband, but she wishes he had at least given her a child. She also wants to prove to everyone that she has what it takes to succeed where no one thought she could, in building her family business back up. It’s a matter of pride.

What would help your character face hardship and meet any challenge?

Support and unconditional love, like she gets from Jonah. Too bad she loses it when she shows her ignorance of what a truly Good Man he is.

Meet Kelly Shepherd from One Woman Only by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romance

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

She had no choice—I have been Jonah’s love since we were in high school, and she wrote about him. *grin*

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?

I wish she hadn’t been so clear on my fears about Jonah—that he didn’t have a mature, responsible view on life. For years I’d swallowed the same story about Jonah that everyone else had, that he was a follow-the-wind kind of guy who didn’t commit to anything. If there were anyone he should have been able to reveal his true self to, it should have been me and I let him down. Why did Dee have to tell the whole world how shallow I was??

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

How much of a milquetoast I was when it came to trying to appease my parents. Good grief. My middle name should have been “Doormat.” When I finally looked back on my life objectively, I was really embarrassed. And pissed that I’d wasted so much time trying to be something I wasn’t.

When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?

When Jonah and I banter. She loves to laugh. We make her laugh.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?

She’s already written about two of the three Goodman brothers, so it’s only fair that she write Mark’s story next.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?

Thanks for giving me red hair!

Where to buy One Woman Only by Dee S Knight

As one of a set of triplets, Jonah always feels the need to make his individuality known. So where his brother Daniel is serious and completely focused, Jonah shuns commitment. Where his genius brother Mark is hailed in the scientific world, Jonah hides beneath a car, tinkering. Thing is, being different isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It takes a woman—the right woman—to make him see that a “good man” can always be a better man.

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #romanticcomedyLinda O’Connor, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Perfectly Christmas by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

On the first day of Christmas, his true love said to him, “Sorry, I have to work.”

That’s the life of a surgeon, and Dr Madison Hayes wouldn’t have it any other way.

Dr Quinn Malone has another priority. In the countdown to Christmas, he needs to convince his old flame that there’s more to life – and love – than the job itself.

This time, his heart is in it for the long haul. Really.

Romantic and … complicated – it’s Perfectly Christmas!

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Builds a fire in the fireplace and cozies up with the latest issue of A Bit about Drills.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Pizza from Pizza Heaven in Strathaven. If she can get out of making dinner, she’s all over it.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

In the operating room, she’s in surgical greens. At home, it’s comfy sweat pants and an oversized sweatshirt.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s a master with a drill – it’s been a hobby for years. If it can be fixed with a drill, she’s your woman.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

She’s not a huge fan of the Secret Santa gift exchange. Buying gifts that people don’t need and want even less is not exactly her cup of tea. But she’s trying to fit into small-town Strathaven so she agrees to participate. Whose name does she pull out of the hat? None other than her old flame Quinn Malone. Groan. Now she has three weeks to make a homemade gift for him. The silver lining is that she’ll be able to use her drill – soap on a rope anyone?

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She’s used to putting patients, including children, quickly at ease.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s an early riser – all those years of 6 a.m rounds at the hospital have molded her into an early bird.

Can she use chopsticks?

Yes. She’s a surgeon with superior fine motor skills – chopsticks are a piece of cake.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee – black. Quick and easy – and it means less grocery shopping.

What apps would she have on her phone?

CPS (Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties), UptoDate, Mobile Banking, Grey’s Anatomy, Fundamentals of Surgery, A Bit about Drills

Android or iPhone?


Earrings or unpierced ears?

Earrings – discrete turquoise crystals are her fav.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Her own CRV that she can pack all her belongings in – handy when she moves from small town to small town. But in Strathaven, the car stays parked in her garage, and everything is close enough to walk.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle (always).

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
