Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Cynthia Terelst

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Will one of the treasures they find be each other’s heart?

It’s been five years since Tara walked out of Shepherd’s life without a word. Since then he’s spiralled through drugs, alcohol and empty relationships, with Tara on his mind the whole time. Now he wants to win her back, and what better way to do it than by creating a fake scavenger hunt? He knows she won’t be able to resist.

Tara’s lost enough loved ones and she didn’t want to see Shepherd added to that count. So, when she saw him high at graduation, she did the only thing she could – she walked away. When she’s teamed up with him for a million dollar scavenger hunt, the feelings reignite. For a second chance at love to work, she needs to be brave enough to open up to him, to tell him everything she withheld the first time around.

Shepherd didn’t realise how much winning would mean to Tara. He now needs to come up with $3 million for her foundation before the hunt is over. If he can’t he will need to tell her its all fake, and he doesn’t know if he can risk that.

Will secrets destroy them a second time around?

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. This is my second published book. My first one was The Cat’s out of the Bag, a billionaire romance set in Australia which includes a homeless cat and a road trip.

this book is part of a series?

Yes, the Love Down Under series. The books in the series are all stand-alones, what ties them together is the location, Australia.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

No. I don’t lose sleep about much.

you did research for this book?

Yes. I needed to research the places where the scavenger hunts took place. Some of them I’ve visited in person.

Yes, there are three dogs in this book – Benny, Billy and George.

No. It is a contemporary romance only.

you speak more than one language?

No, just English. Unless swearing is considered its own language.

you grew up where you live now?

you love to read?

Yes. I wish I had more time to read. I try to read every day.

you are never late?

No, I am always late. I just can’t seem to get anywhere on time. I was glad when my work set an 8am meeting, which then forced me to get to work when I was supposed to.

you love pizza?

Yes. Pizza is great. When I was younger my favourite was Mexicana with pineapple. You might think it’s weird, but I thought it was great.

you love sushi?

Yes, I do enjoy sushi. I’ve even tried making it myself and it didn’t turn out too bad. It’s easier to buy though.

you have a pet?

Yes, I have two cats, Kimmy and Possum. And I foster kittens for a local rescue. I don’t have any kittens in care at the moment.

Tanner, by Cheryl St John, introduces you to a determined Southern belle and a no-nonsense ex-Union army captain making peace to save a baby they both love.

Know the Hero from Tanner by Cheryl St.John @_cherylstjohn_ #RLFblog #westernromance #kindleunlimitedCheryl, 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 hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Tanner by Cheryl St John

Genre historical western

Book heat level PG:

He’s focused on the future…

The past is all she knows…

Together they’re forced to face today…

His months in Salisbury prison taught Union Captain Tanner Bell to detest a southern drawl, and Widow Cranford’s exaggerated Dixie twang has him gritting his teeth. His plans for a ranch are threatened when his orphaned newborn niece is delivered to him, and he desperately needs the landlady’s help.

Raylene Cranford survived a Georgia winter living on acorns and scrawny rabbits before traveling sixteen-hundred miles to carve out a life in Colorado. She lost everything–except her dignity and hope. Her feminine Southern graces are her armor, but maintaining appearances could cost her love.

Can a Southern belle and a Union soldier change deeply-ingrained misconceptions about themselves for the sake of a child?

Know the Hero from Tanner

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

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

Tanner is seldom bored, but when his animals are cared for, the baby is sleeping and he has time to himself, he enjoys reading.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He’s a meat and potatoes guy, but if he needed to eat on the road, he would probably buy sandwiches.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Tanner is usually found working in his trousers or denims and a loose cotton shirt. He likes nice clothing, however, and wears a white shirt, vest and tie to church. He adds a coat when weather permits.

Does he know how to fix things?

He knows how to do everything from shoeing horses to putting up fences and repairing porch floors and stairs.

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

His attempts to do nice things for his landlady are rebuffed, and he’s puzzled. She doesn’t want his help. He attempted to supply wood for the stove and fireplaces, but Raylene assured him she could take care of it herself. He fixed her front porch and she was offended that one of her tenants was working on her property.

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

When his sister died and left him with a newborn, he didn’t know what to do, but he asked for help and figured it out. Feeling out of his element swiftly transitioned to adoring his infant niece and planning a future with her.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s an early riser, waking to care for his infant niece, and then go feed and water horses at his livery. He enjoys coffee with his breakfast. He cooked simple meals for himself or ate at the hotel restaurant until moving into Raylene Cranford’s boarding house and enjoying her cooking.

How does he handle things when in a “proper” social situation?

Tanner was a captain in the Union Army, and early in the war, he attended dinners and parties at the commanding officer’s homes. He’s well-schooled in social graces.

Valet or takes care of himself?

In 1868 American west, he takes care of himself.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

Or no shirt when the sun is radiating and he’s working iron on the forge.

Carriage or horseback?

This hero owns and operates a livery, so he’s around horses all day every day. He has a favorite strawberry roan he rides, but for taking others on outings, he outfits a buggy.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

#CoverReveal for To Heal a Heart by Jana Richards @JanaRichards_ #RLFblog #smalltownromanceTo Heal a Heart, small town romance by Jana Richards. A wounded soldier, a broken-down horse and a woman with painful secrets. Can they find a place to call home?

Jana Richards, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the characters in To Heal a Heart.

Secondary Characters in “To Heal a Heart”

Secondary characters are fun to write. They can be outrageous, funny, or just plain evil. They can be the best friend who provides a sounding board to the heroine, or the rival out to crush the hero. Whether they’re good or bad, secondary characters provide texture and depth to a romance novel.

In “To Heal a Heart” one of the most prominent secondary characters is Everett Branson, Blair’s grandfather. Everett, a widower, has had a couple of heart attacks and Blair decides to move to Masonville to look after him. Everett dishes out wisdom with folksy humor. He enjoys having his granddaughter’s company, but he worries about her spending too much time with him and not enough with people her own age:

“I love this spot,” she said with a contented sigh.

“Your grandma loved it, too. We used to sit out here most evenings in the summer. She used to say she’d be stuck inside all winter. She wasn’t going to miss one minute of summer if she could help it.”

“I miss her.” Anna Branson had been her favorite person in the world. Both she and Granddad had stuck by her no matter what she’d done.

“Yup, so do I. You’re a lot like her, you know. Same determination, same sunny outlook on life. My Anna was a joy, and so are you.”

Blair laid her hand on his arm, her throat constricting with emotion. “That’s the nicest thing you could ever say to me.”

“It’s only the truth.” He set the rocker in motion, pushing it with his foot. “But a young woman like you should be out with other young people sometimes. It’s not good for you to be stuck out here with an old goat like me.”

“I’m not stuck anywhere. This is exactly where I want to be.”

“Blair, girl, you need a life.”

Garrett’s parents, especially his mother Grace, have always provided him with love, emotional support and a helping hand when he needed it. Now is one of those times. After being injured in Afghanistan, he moves home to North Dakota and stays with his parents while he tries to figure out what to do now that his military career is over. He appreciates the concern they’ve shown him, but it can be a source of guilt:

Garrett went to her and enfolded her in his arms. She was tiny, no more than five foot two, but she was one of the strongest people he knew. “I love you, Mom.”

“I love you too, Garrett. I only want you to be happy.”

“I know.”

He kissed her cheek once more before leaving the kitchen. To Grace, happiness meant having work he enjoyed, along with a wife and a family. But he didn’t know if he could accomplish any of those goals. All those things, which he’d once assumed would be his one day, seemed an impossible dream now. Knowing his mother’s happiness depended on him getting his act together overwhelmed him.

But Grace is no pushover:

“My grandmother used to #CoverReveal for To Heal a Heart by Jana Richards @JanaRichards_ #RLFblog #smalltownromancehave beautiful flowerbeds.” Blair’s voice was wistful. “Now they’re mostly full of weeds. I wish I could revive them.”

“I could help you with that,” his mother said.

Blair shook her head. “Oh no, I couldn’t ask you to do that.”

Grace waved away her objection. “Nonsense. Like I said, gardening is a labor of love for me. And you’d be helping me out. I have some plants that need dividing, and I don’t have anywhere to plant them. I could put some of them in your yard.”

“Mrs. Saunders—”

“It’s Grace, remember?” His mother smiled brightly, and Garrett knew from experience Blair didn’t have a hope of changing her mind now that it was made up. “It would be fun for me. You wouldn’t want to deny me my fun, would you?”

Everett and Grace have always been there for Blair and Garrett. But Blair’s mother Victoria was an entirely different kind of secondary character to write. She’s anything but likeable. The trick was not to turn her into a cartoon-type villain. In this scene Blair compares her mother to Grace:

How different Grace Saunders was from her own mother. She couldn’t imagine Victoria Greyson digging in the dirt, or patiently explaining the differences between various perennials to her. If Victoria wanted a flowerbed, she hired someone to create it and tend it for her.

All Blair ever wanted was a mother who would make time for her. Care for her with kindness. Her parents had always been more interested in maintaining appearances than in actually parenting. They showed off their children to their wealthy, powerful friends like trophies they trotted out whenever it suited them. She remembered attending political rallies with her parents and brothers as a little girl. Her mother would dress her in fancy clothes, and she’d be expected to sit still through long, boring speeches. If she fidgeted, she’d receive a painful pinch to her knee. God help her if she cried out. Blair could still hear Victoria’s voice hissing in her ear, “For God’s sake, smile!”

She pushed away the hurtful memories and the longing. She couldn’t change anything about the past, and she couldn’t change her parents.

I tried to give each of my secondary characters a distinct personality and a little charm to keep them from being cardboard cutouts. But mostly, they were a lot of fun to write!

To Heal a Heart by Jana Richards

Genre Small town contemporary romance/contemporary western romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Garrett Saunders’ world changed two years ago on a road in Afghanistan. Back home, he feels like a stranger. As he struggles to find his place in the world, he meets a horse destined for the slaughterhouse and a woman bent on rescuing the strays of the world, including him.

Blair Greyson moves to Masonville to look after her ailing grandfather and give her rescue horses a home. Right away she butts heads with a surly former Marine. Despite a rocky start, they come to an agreement: Blair will board Garrett’s rescue horse and he’ll help with repairs around her farm.

Garrett finds purpose working with Blair—and falls in love with her. But she’s hiding a secret. Can she forgive herself and accept Garrett’s love, or will she let guilt and regret continue to rule her life?

Read a new sweet SciFi: A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #MM #RLFblogI’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of RLF–and I’m usually welcoming guests in this space. Today, it’s my turn to share a new book. A Stolen Heart is my latest in the Antonello Brothers sci-fi series set in the Tarthian Empire.

A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen

When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves’ Guild he once led.

Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc’s immortal ex–the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes. For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he’ll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he’s coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child’s training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart…
