Is It True: Seducing Cat by Adriana Kraft @AdrianaKraft #RLFblog #RomancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Adriana Kraft, author of Seducing Cat (Meghan’s Playhouse, Book 1), an LGBT Erotic Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

What could college English Professor Caitlin Shanahan ever have in common with the brash carpenter Kurt Davis? The sexy sprite Meghan Keenan, that’s what.

Level headed English Professor Caitlin Shanahan has finally earned tenure and purchased the century-old two-story house of her dreams in the college town of Burntside, Wisconsin—at thirty-four, she’d better face facts: her future is teaching college and writing plays, not falling in love. So why is she so drawn to foxy little hometown actress Meghan Keenan, who’s rented her upstairs apartment, or worse, to the girl’s gorgeous hunk of a lover Kurt Davis, a carpenter who’s never even been to college?

Twenty-year-old Meg has a plan. First she’ll seduce the reluctant professor, then she’ll share her sexual delights with both Cat and her brawny carpenter, and when she’s successfully brought them together, she can make her escape and explore what’s beyond the only town she’s ever lived in.

Kurt can’t stand the up-tight professor who’s hired him to build a gazebo and refurbish her old house—the house he wanted for himself. Even if Meg’s scheme succeeds, he knows Caitlin would never look at him twice. No need to go there in his fantasies…

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Four Flames ( R )

Genre: Erotic Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. Our first erotic romance was published in 2007, and we’ve never looked back. With the release of Seducing Cat, we now have a total of 40 novels, novellas and short stories published.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, though it didn’t start out that way. We planned Seducing Cat as a one-shot erotic romp, intending to create a structure to maximize tantalizing erotic scenes. But once characters are created, they take on a life of their own…There are now a total of six books in the Meghan’s Playhouse series, and Seducing Cat is Book One.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No… Unless you count research. See below:
you did research for this book?
Um, yes, but it might be TMI. We’ll just say we’ve learned a great deal about the polyamory lifestyle Meg thrives on. We like to keep readers guessing!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. The century-old four-square house Cat has just purchased plays a central role. It’s modeled on a house we loved and left (had to move) in the Midwest a few years back – 3300 square feet, a central oak staircase, beveled glass windowed double doors to the dining room, living room, and the solarium beyond… So we’ve made the house immortal in Seducing Cat. Without it, Meg wouldn’t have a place to live, she’d never have succeeded in seducing Cat, and Kurt’s path might never have crossed Cat’s.
this book has more than one genre?
Not really – Erotic Romance, pure and simple. Some sub genres, though – LGBT, polyamory, and Ménage. Both Meg and Cat are bisexual.
you speak more than one language?
Yes—and since there are two of us writing together as Adriana Kraft, I’m going to cop to all of them: Besides English, between us we have French, German, Spanish, and a mystery oriental language. I’ll let readers guess, but I might or might not answer truthfully.
you grew up where you live now?
No, neither one of us. We now live in the southwest. I grew up on the east coast, and my husband in the upper Midwest, where we set a lot of our stories, like Seducing Cat, which takes place in Wisconsin.
you love to read?
Do you really have to ask? Mr. Kraft’s parents used to get mad at him for finishing all his Christmas books by the end of Christmas day. I once didn’t hear the rest of the family call me to come downstairs for ice cream because I was buried in a book. And both of us as children sneaked flashlights to read under the covers after we were supposed to be in bed.
you are never late?
Mr. Kraft will laugh at this one! He is never late, and I am pretty chronically a little late. I always think there’s time to do one more thing before we head out the door…
you love pizza?
Yes, if it’s locally made from fresh ingredients and not from a chain restaurant.
you love sushi?
No, neither of us!
you have a pet?
No. A sadness—we used to.

Anthology: Blue Collar Boys Behaving Badly @DelilahDevlin @Adele_Downs #RLFblog #contemporary #romanceToday’s featured book is Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology, by Delilah Devlin, Adele Downs, and 14 more.

When it comes to love…Blue Collar is better!

It’s time to set aside those sexy billionaires and enjoy stories about the everyday, even sexier bad boys you meet in real life. They may have dirty hands and wear tool belts and jeans instead of Rolex watches, but they’re earthy alpha males unafraid to get down and dirty when face to face with a woman in need–whatever her need may be!

Just a few of the titillating stories inside…

In “Elevation” by Megan Mitcham, an always-in-control policewoman trapped in an elevator shaft gets a sexy rescue from the handsome repairman. A lonely woman drives a thousand miles to meet an oil field roughneck ready for a long night of laying pipe in Mia Hopkins’ “We Drill Deep While Others Sleep”. Jennifer Kacey shows the lengths to which an enterprising gal will go to get the owner of an oil change shop to check her fluids in “The Boss”. And those are just a few of the sexy stories inside this collection about the everyday hero next door, including “Upside Down Love” by Adele Downs.

These are men who’ve built their powerful muscles from hard work rather than inside any gym, and they sure know how to use their hard-earned skills to pleasure a woman…

Bitter Legacy by CB Clark @cbclarkauthor #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome CB Clark, author of Bitter Legacy, a new Romantic Suspense.

Why did you write this book?

The plot of my recent release came from hearing of terrible tragedy. Fires in sawmills are a big concern. With clouds of highly combustible sawdust clogging the air and piles of kiln-dried lumber in the yards, explosions and fires are not uncommon.

These devastating disasters provided me with the idea behind my latest story. The hero and heroine are combative owners of a multi-million dollar lumber mill, the town’s main employer. What would happen if the sawmill was destroyed by a fire? What if someone deliberately set that fire? The owners must work together to find the arsonist and save the town by rebuilding the mill. Can they find love amidst this tragedy?

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read all genres of fiction, but my sweet spot is romantic suspense.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Eve Dallas, the heroine in J.D. Robb’s romantic suspense novels is a strong, independent woman with a surprising soft side.

What are you working on at the moment?

Bitter Legacy is my third romantic suspense novel. I’m working on a fourth book where the heroine escapes from an abusive husband whom the police suspect is responsible for the murder of a wealthy publisher. With the help of a ruggedly handsome homicide detective, the heroine tracks down the killer and finds love.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’ve submitted another romantic suspense to my publisher. If that manuscript is accepted, it could be published within the next year. I’d like to try and release two books a year, but my daughter just had identical twin boys, so that could be a challenge.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Sharla-Jean Bromley returns to her hometown after a seventeen-year absence with vengeance in her heart. From the very beginning, her plans go awry when she meets devastatingly handsome Josh Morgan, the man to whom her father left half of his multi-million dollar lumber mill.

Josh, suspicious of Sharla-Jean’s reasons for returning to town after such a long absence, vows to keep control of the company he feels is rightfully his. She is equally determined to prove she can run her father’s mill, even though it means working side-by-side with Josh, a man whose very presence evokes an attraction that is increasingly difficult for her to ignore. In the process, they must overcome a villain who’s determined to destroy both the lumber mill and their lives.

Will Sharla-Jean succeed and heal the anguish that has long filled her soul? Will she and Josh find the passion of a lifetime?

Introducing Dr. Aaron Kendall

Age: 36
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Tennessee
Profession: pediatrician/neonataology

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall. Six three and I have athletic build. I inherited my mother’s black hair and blue that were passed down from her Irish ancestors.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live in Lafayette Falls, Tennessee where I practice medicine. I’m a partner at the Lafayette Falls Childrens’ Clinic. I completed a fellowship in neonatology and I’m the medical director of the newborn nursery at the medical center. I love sports and I played college baseball. I live in a large log-and-stone house on a wooded lot in the country. I bought with the intention of raising a family there. After my divorce, I kept the house and now my cranky widowed father lives with me and my youngest brother, a frat boy/con artist, comes and goes.

Who is the significant other in your life?

After my painful divorce, I decided to take a break from love and serious relationships. That was before my life got upended by Lia Montgomery.

How do you dress?

I wear scrubs at work. Tee shirts and jeans at home. I like pin-striped dress shirts and slacks when I go out.

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

I live comfortably and I don’t really want for anything in the way of material items. My heart longs for what money can’t buy: true love.

What is your family like?

My mother, a nurse, has passed away. My dad, Frank, is a retired cop and he is very outspoken at times. I have three brothers. I’m the oldest. Two of my brothers live out-of-state and my youngest brother, Stevie, is still in college. He’s been in college several years now. Stevie is something of a con artist and I never know if he’s telling me the truth, but he’s fun to be with and I love him.

Do you have children?

No, but I am in the process of adopting an unwanted baby. I have always wanted children and I had hoped my wife and I would have a large family, but that wasn’t to be.

Now I have a second chance at having a son and I’m thrilled.

What past event causes you the most fear?

The day I came home and found a note from my wife. She had left. She loved another man whom she had been seeing and who was the father of the child she was expecting. I had no idea and I was shattered to lose her as well as the baby I thought was mine. I never want that to happen to me again.

Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?

Lia. She’s Baby John’s aunt and when she arrives, everything in my world changes. All my plans for adopting John are in jeopardy because, well, she showed up during a bachelor party my dad was having for a friend. Needless to say, she got the wrong impression of me because I’d had a few drinks, the house was mess and we had several blow up dolls and porn on TV. She was horrified with me and the fact that I was single makes me totally unacceptable. Unfortunately, I am attracted to her, like love-at-first-sight, so I may be in trouble. You can read Chapter 1 to see what I mean.
