When the Right One Comes Along by Livia Quinn

Genre Small town military romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Love happens when you least expect it, even when it’s the last thing you’re looking for.
Former Army Ranger, Ridge Romano lost his brother John to the war, but not on the battlefield. After returning home with PTSD and, like so many soldiers, experiencing the loss of his identity and purpose, he committed suicide leaving behind a grieving wife and child. Early on, Ridge was recruited by the Army for his work in bionics eventually putting them on the forefront of drone technology. Now, the CEO of MedBionics, Ridge is on a mission to ensure John’s death was not in vain. He’s in DC meeting with Congress about an revolutionary veterans’ project. With a “yes” vote on the big bill, his Consortium, MiliCare, will take over the care of his fellow soldiers and their families. But an impulsive act of folly and one night with one very special woman – complete with photographs – put the contract and his dreams in danger.
At the DC convention, photographer and former fashion model, Buffy Calloway finds the “Face” of her new franchise, the Calloway Studio and Casting agency, which will provide models, marketing and photography to designers and movie studios. The tall, dark and intense man she finds is everything she’s been looking for. He’s “the one” but after discovering his noble goals, there seems to be no path to a meeting of the minds (or their hearts).
Can two very different people whose goals are at odds find a way to have it all?
How long have you been writing?Do It Write: Where Livia Quinn writes @liviiaquinn #RLFblog #MilitaryRomance
I’ve had a pen in my hand since I was a kid waiting for a story to put on paper but didn’t start writing fiction toward publication until the summer of Katrina, the hurricane that nit the gulf coast in 2005.
What was your first published book?
Fire in my Blood in 2012 which has since been revised and renamed Undone.
Tell us about your writing space or home office.
A new neighbor moved in and offered me the portable building that was used as a “camp”. It sits by the bayou on the hill, decorated with my favorite things, my story boards, sculptures a friend made me. It’s not fancy but quiet and quaint and the scenery is soothing. I love it. This is my desk I recently fancied up to sooth my psyche a bit.
If money was no object, what would your home office look like?
Something like one of the gorgeous libraries with walls of books and intricately painted ceilings I saw in England last year that made me want to sit in them and write.
What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?
My notebook and an Inkjoy pen, my Olympus recorder and Dragon Dictate. I handwrite the new scenes in the tub, record them onto the recorder, transcribe and copy into Scrivener. (That’s the VERY rough draft.)
What’s the last book about writing that you read?
Novel Shortcuts by Laura Whitcomb. It’s excellent, especially about writing back cover copy as a short synopsis when beginning a new book.
Do you have an author newsletter?
Yes. I’d love to hear from readers at either my email below or you can sign up for my occasional newsletter for new release alerts.

She’s stored up fodder from her jobs as mail lady, salesperson, plant manager, business owner and professional singer to share with readers. Think of her as her characters’ biographer!

Garnet by Caroline Clemmons @CarolinClemmons #RLFblog #NewRelease #HistoricalWesternCaroline Clemmons, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Garnet by by Caroline Clemmons

Genre Historical western romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Garnet Chandler is fighting to hold onto her cafĂ©, her niece and nephew, and her sanity after the deaths of her husband, his brother, and his sister-in-law. A persistent prowler and the threat of losing custody of her niece and nephew spur her to action. She doesn’t need another man, but she needs a husband long enough to convince the children’s grandparents she can offer them a stable home.
Bounty hunter Adam Bennett was ready to settle down when his friend was killed by a horse thief. He set out to capture the man who had also killed a guard when escaping prison. Adam must have let down his defenses because the man he followed and two cohorts waylaid Adam, beating him and stealing all his possessions before kicking him down a steep ravine. Adam is determined to capture the three as soon as he heals from their encounter.
Garnet and Adam join forces to achieve both their goals. Will that be enough?
Why did you write this book?
When Charlene Raddon asked me to be in this series, I agreed with her that The Widows of Wildcat Ridge would be an exciting project. Using her parameters, I chose to write about Garnet, a young woman widowed by a horrific mining disaster which also claimed the lives of many people who ran to help rescue the miners. I decided she should have her niece and nephew to raise. (I love stories which include children, don’t you?) The story grew from that premise.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I am an eclectic reader but my preference is western historical romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
My favorite would have to be a tie between Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood and Jenny Jones from The Promise Of Jenny Jones by Maggie Osbourne.
What are you working on at the moment?
Monk’s Bride, a novella in my Kincaid series
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to the one above, I will write more in my new series, Pearson Grove. Each book will have as a heroine the women mentioned in MAIL-ORDER MORIAH, book one of the series. Those are Lula, Alexandra, Deborah, Corinne, Felicity, and Evelyn.
