Today’s featured book is A Woman for Zachary, a Contemporary Romance by Adriana Kraft

It’s New York! Broadway beckons, but Meg has more fun keeping an erotic triangle going with her current flame, Zach Cullen, and her drama coach, Josie Patrice.

Zachary Cullen has ignored Josette Patrice’s overtures for years, but she agrees to take on his latest protégé-slash-arm-candy Meghan Keenan in her off-Broadway workshop theater. Though the girl has incredible talent, Josie would stake her reputation on that little thing being a switch-hitter, like herself, and she doesn’t want Zach to be duped.

Josie sets out to seduce Meg and expose her for what she is, but all bets are off when Meg turns the tables on Josie to hook her up with Zach.

For Love of the Earl by Jessie Clever @JessieClever #RLFblog #Regency #romanceToday’s featured book is For Love of the Earl, a Regency romance by Jessie Clever.

Fans of both historical romance and historical women’s fiction will love this smart, witty, and suspenseful series from bestselling author Jessie Clever. If you like Lauren Willig, Deanna Raybourn, or Amanda Quick, you’re going to fall in love with this author.

Sarah Black, the Countess of Stryden, and spy for the British War Office, kidnapped by the French and imprisoned on a ship in the English Channel, has but one complaint: having to share a prison cell with her husband. Forced into the marriage to help her carry out missions as a female spy, Sarah struggles with accepting her position as a member of high society, a position that seems ill-gained in relation to her lowly birth. The fact that she is secretly in love with her husband, the earl, does not help matters at all.

Alec Black, Earl of Stryden, and brilliant spy for the British War Office, cannot speak to his wife, which makes for a rather uncomfortable imprisonment. Unable to grasp the reason for his wife’s utter disdain for him, four years of marriage has brought no closer to knowing how to make Sarah love him.

But when the deadly game of espionage threatens their only chance at a future together, the only thing left to understand is love.

The books in the Spy Series:

1/2. Inevitably a Duchess (A prequel novella)
1. Son of a Duke
2. For Love of the Earl
3. A Countess Most Daring
4. To Save a Viscount

Taming the Cyborg by Anne Kane @annekane #RLFblog #scifiToday’s featured book is Taming the Cyborg, a scifi romance by Anne Kane.

Although he doesn’t understand why his brother chose to bond with a human female, Noah agrees to be the official cyborg witness at the birth of the cyborg/human couple’s first son. When he arrives on the human space station, he finds himself face to face with a female pilot, an unheard of occupation for a female on the cyborg home world of Terras Five. Hailey’s cute, she’s sassy, she’s sexy and she doesn’t automatically defer to him just because he’s male. Noah finds that combination irresistible.

After a night of amazing sex, Hailey heads off on a reconnaissance mission with her squadron, and Noah arranges to spend a little more time in the human world to get the sassy red-head out of his system. But when her ship goes missing, it’s up to Noah to use all the tricks of his cyborg heritage to track her down and rescue her.

Anne Kane Social Media

Anne is a gorgeous supermodel who writes romance in her spare time while jetting around Europe with a string of boy-toys in tow.

Hmmm… no one is going to believe that. How about this?

Anne is an undercover agent for a super secret government agency and when not saving the world for democracy and all the good people, she writes romance one-handed on a special mini computer designed by a mad scientist just for her.

Yeah, that sounds way better. So, ignore the people who tell you she’s just an ordinary person with an extraordinary imagination. They’re just jealous because she gets to play with James Bond and vacation in exotic locations.

Honestly!

When she’s not busy saving the world or writing the next great novel, she likes to kayak, hike, ride motorcycles, swim, skate, practice karate, play her guitar, sing and of course, read.

Wolf Holding by Kara James @KaraJames_Autho #RLFblog #PNRKara James, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

Kara James QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

I write paranormal romance. Specifically shifters: merging werewolves and Rugby and dragon and other shifters with MMA.

How do you come up with ideas?

I think of a character first usually, then what if’s come next. For my Wolf Binding series, it was: What if a rugby teams goes off on holiday to the Transylvania Mountains and become werewolves? How would they cope and hide their secret from the world?

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

Discovery. I know the characters, the general idea of the storyline and how it will end, but not all the stuff in-between.

When did you write your first book?

Wolf Binding is my debut paranormal romance/ shifter book.

Kara James FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Satin
Ocean or mountains? Mountains
City life or country life? Country
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? Dogs

Tell us about Wolf Holding

Careful what you wish for…

Kevin Taylor awakes to his worst nightmare. His leg has been amputated from the knee down because of his motorcycle stunt accident. Thinking his life is over, he broods until a new physical therapist takes over his care and he finds himself falling for her.

Amber Carter loves her job helping people, but she lives with a secret. As a teen, she tried a spell from her family’s grimoire and her parents ended up dead. Now she’d rather just live a normal life. Except when Kevin finds her book and turns himself into a wolf, will she have enough power to fix him?

Book 2 in the Wolf Binding series, but written as a standalone

Kara James Social Media

Kara James is fascinated with Rugby and werewolves. So what better way to bring her two passions together than with bad boy romance in the Binding series?

She also holds degree belts in Karate and Mauy Thai – and was excited to blend MMA and Shifters in her Shadow series.

Kara lives with her family and is a full-time mom and a writer (whenever all the kids are in bed).

High Country Dilemma by Dena N Netherton @denanetherton1 #RLFblog #contemporary #romanceDena Netherton, author of High Country Dilemma, answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and studied to become a professional singer and musician. After performing and teaching for many years, and after I had raised my three children, I retired from the music world and turned my focus to crafting both romance and suspense tales. My years onstage have provided me with wonderful memories to draw upon when I create new stories and new characters. My husband and I are active in our church as worship leaders and teachers. We recently moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
I love seafood. Especially scallops. Oysters, too. There’s a wonderful seafood restaurant I like to go to that sits on a cliff, overlooking the San Juan Islands. They have their own oyster beds. You oyster lovers know what I’m talking about when I say, “There’s nothing like fresh oysters on the half shell.”
Describe the perfect vacation.
My perfect vacation is only loosely planned. It’s a road trip. We have a few major destinations, but, other than that, we can stop along the way and spend as much time as we want exploring little towns, finding the most memorable road signs, discovering a new ‘favorite’ restaurant, and snapping interesting photos. I also keep a road-trip journal where I record memories of our conversations, how long it took to get from here to there, and things I learned today. Some of my best ideas for stories come to me when I’m zoning out in the passenger seat on I-90.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
The best toy I ever received was—believe it or not—a big box of card stock paper from my uncle who worked at the Post Office. My sister and I spent hours and hours drawing people and animals on the cards, then bending them in half so they’d stand upright. We created a whole ranch, complete with cowboys, dogs, cats, chicken, cows, and fences. I’m so glad I was a kid before computers and cell phones and iPods came along!
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
For High Country Dilemma, I drove to the area and checked out the real-life mountain town that sits where my fictionalized Pine Ridge is located. I took tons of photos, visited museums and stores, collected and studied local maps, and read historical books about the area. I also purchased quite a few books about the animal and plant life in the Colorado Rockies since that’s such a big part of the back drop for this mountain romance. I recorded my observations about the town and the area in a journal. At the time, I was living in Colorado, in another small town about an hour north, so local research wasn’t a problem. I also did internet research on historic opera houses in the mountains so my pine Ridge Opera House would be authentic. I know a couple of firefighters, so I picked their brains, as well as reading library books on the subject of firefighting. You’ll probably think I’m crazy, but I think research is really fun.
Please tell us about your latest book.
High Country Dilemma is a G-rated, (Christian) contemporary romance that takes place
in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I started writing it while I was still living in Colorado, but finished it after we moved to Washington. After I attended a couple of Melodramas, performed in small towns in the Rockies, I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to create a character (Fallon) who comes up to the mountains for the summer to direct Pine Ridge’s annual Melodrama and winds up having to play the main character herself? Of course, her life situation had to be just as complicated and fraught with emotion as Miss May’s, the innocent maiden Fallon plays. And the hunky hero (Lucas) who plays her leading man just had to be her off-stage rescuer, as well.
Fallon Hart has landed her dream job—directing the annual Melodrama, Miss May’s Dilemma. But when Fallon arrives in Pine Ridge, Colorado, she finds her new apartment in flames. To make matters worse, her manager wants her to sing an impossible solo. Her family wants her to give up the theater and join the family jewelry business. And her selfish, controlling ex-finance wants her back. The biggest dilemma of all, though, is trying to make everyone happy.
Handsome firefighter, Lucas O’Farrell, is searching for his soul-mate, a lady who’ll share his love of the mountains, small-town living, and kids. He knows exactly what he doesn’t want: a sophisticated city girl like Fallon. But when they are cast as sweethearts in the Melodrama, the attraction is hard to deny. Before he realizes it, he’s falling for her—hard— and it’s possible she’s starting to love him, too. But is love worth the risk if she’s playing to return to Denver at the end of the season?

Picture of Close to the Skin by Zara West @zarawestauthor #RLFblog #RomanticsuspenseZara West author of Close to the Skin answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.

Zara West loves all things dark, scary, and heart-stopping as long as they lead to true love. Born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Zara spends winters in New York where the streets hum with life, summers in the Maritimes where the sea can be cruel, and the rest of the year anywhere inspiration for tales of suspense, mystery, and romance are plentiful.

Swept off her feet by her own Indiana Jones, Zara has followed sheep and goats up and down mountainsides in Greece, Crete, and Italy, been stranded on the banks of the Rhine with no money and one chocolate bar, and while she has never been kidnapped, she has been abandoned on an island in the middle of t wilderness for longer than she wants to remember.
A member of RWA, Zara has won numerous awards for her short stories and novels. Close to the Skin was a first winner in the 2016 Pages from the Heart for romantic suspense.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
The answer has to be home-made pizza. I have been making pizza every Friday since my children were toddlers. It got to be that all their friends and all our friends started showing up unexpectedly on Friday nights to have “Mom’s” pizza. I stiil make pizza once a week (Wednesdays now) and the kids and their buddies still come to dive in. My pizza secret – use half-cheddar cheese.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Right now it has to be Jamie Fraser from Outlander. I loved him when I read Gabaldon’s series. But I just finished binge watching the last two seasons of Outlancer on Netflix so he’s come to life for me. The actor Sam Heughan was perfect for the part. My second favorite hottie is Nathaniel Boomer in Into the Wilderness. I never cared much for the heroine. But she sure lucked out in the amazing lover department.
Describe the perfect vacation.
My perfect vacation is to have no must dos and no job to worry about and just to be able to sit and write all day. I am pretty much having that now here at my cottage in the Martimes with a view of the sea. Lucky me.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My father made me a wooden gun that used a rubberband to shoot pieces of cardboard. Not a very girly toy, but I loved pretending to be the hero and sneaking up on imaginary villains and letting fly. I guess romantic suspense was in my blood even then.
What are your hobbies?
Reading is my main hobby. When I am not working or writing, I read. I read everything. I read biographies and histories, mysteries and thrillers, and scifi and fantasy, historical fiction and paranormal, and of course lots and lots of romance.
After I read, I review what I read on a regular basis. You can find my reviews here, http://www.zarawestsuspense.com/my-books/zara-recommends/ and on Goodreads, https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/50909234
My other hobbies include cooking, gardening, quilting, and spinning and weaving. I did ethnography in Greece living with and studying shepherding and learned how to work with wool and flax there. I have a Greek loom and have sold my weavings professionally at venues such as Bloomingdales, Putamayo, and the Museum of American Folkart.
Please tell us about your latest book.

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.
Sybil is happily on the shelf, tending to her sheep. But she fears she’ll depart this life without experiencing physical love, which she suspects is rather enjoyable. When her long-lost fiancé returns from sea, she decides he’s the lucky man who’ll receive her virginity.
Max is eager to return to his sugar plantation and has no intention of remaining long in London. However, he didn’t bargain on a wilful, pretty, exasperating spinster determined to take him to her bed.
He insists on marriage but she wants only his body. Her heart is not part of the deal. Unfortunately, love doesn’t always follow the rules.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: historical 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, I’ve written many books, and have previously published two full-length novels (one a romantic suspense and one an historical romance) and three novellas (contemporary romance).
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this is the first in a series. I’ve just contracted the second in the series, Love and Turmoil, and hope it will be out before the end of the year.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No, I can’t say that I lost sleep, but the characters and the plot were my constant companions until long after the book was finished. I’m considering writing a short story about Max and Sybil’s life a few years later because I want to visit with them again.
you did research for this book?
Oh, yes, lots and lots of research. That’s my favorite part of writing historical fiction. I especially enjoy searching for an obscure tidbit that I can include in the story.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Hm…not in the book exactly, but sheep are extremely important to Sybil. And there’s a question about fleas. Oh, and a very interesting conversation about fruit bats.
this book has more than one genre?
No, just historical romance.
you speak more than one language?
No, alas, I’ve lost most of my childhood French. As a Canadian, with French being the official second language, I was instructed in French from grade three thru grade 12. I remember enough to locate a bathroom or a library, LOL.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, but only recently. We moved back to Nova Scotia a few months ago.
you love to read?
Yes! I can’t imagine not reading. I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I even belonged to a children’s book club and can remember my feeling of joy when I got home from school to find a new book in the mail.
you are never late?
I HATE being late and usually leave early to avoid it.
you love pizza?
Yes. Pretty much any topping except pineapple – I don’t understand that one at all.
you love sushi?
No. But I have to confess that I’ve never tried it, nor will I ever. I have a psychological block to the concept of eating raw fish, or any other type of raw animal protein.
you have a pet?
Yes, two cats: Mogget, a girl, and Bruno, a boy. She’s a princess and he’s a simple soul.

Stefan's Salvation by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRNJ Walters author of Stefan’s Salvation answers five easy questions.
Please tell us about yourself.
NJ Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
That’s a tough one, because it depends on the age. I never really had a favorite that I kept over the years. I did save up my money and buy a pack of white chalk and an chalkboard eraser. I’d tape construction paper to my closet door and use it as a blackboard. (This was long before blackboard paint was readily available.) I’d spend hours pretending to be a teacher. I also saved up and bought a stamp pad and date stamp. (Today these things are easily obtained, but back in the early 70s, they were harder to come by.) I’d tape blank cards in the back of my books and play library.
What are your hobbies?
I read…a lot. No surprise there. I also enjoy going to the movies, specifically the afternoon matinee, as there are never that many people there at that time of day. I like to sit three rows back from the front. There is rarely anyone sitting in front of me, so it feels like my own private showing. I also love to explore thrift stores. You never know what you’re going to find.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I love reading romance. I especially enjoy paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. But I also love to read spiritual and self-help books. I usually have a fiction and nonfiction book going at the same time.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
It really depends on the book. Some books need minimal research, while others need a whole lot more. Over the years, I’ve researched some pretty fun stuff from antique carnival rides (Hades’ Carnival series) to private planes (Drakon’s Promise). I’ve watched videos about Transylvania (Dalakis Passion series) and the Trans-Siberian Railroad (upcoming book), and spent hours looking at the tourist websites for various towns and cities. One of the fun things about writing is getting the opportunity to explore jobs I’ve never had and places I’ve never been. I get to go on an adventure.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
For Stefan, it would probably be Burn by the Cure. It’s from the movie The Crow and I love that song. Or possibly Highway to hell by AC/DC.
Please tell us about your latest book.

When a dark stranger enters her life, first as a protector, then as a lover, Laurel Rose is both fascinated and frightened by his mysterious power and all-consuming sensuality. But as the threats escalate into outright violence and her world begins to spiral out of control, Laurel Rose turns to the only man she knows she can trust—Stefan Dalakis, a creature of the night.
Stefan has roamed the earth for centuries in search of his one true mate, and as he becomes ever more tormented by loneliness, his every impulse compels him to unleash the raging beast within. When he retreats to the countryside to avoid harming the human population, his travels take him to a small roadside bar in North Carolina, where an overheard conversation leads him directly to Laurel Rose—and a love so complete he will do anything to save her . . . and anything to possess her.
As Stefan finds blissful release from his anguish and Laurel Rose surrenders to her first sweet erotic taste of belonging and acceptance, they must still confront the danger that presses in from every side. And when their newfound happiness faces the ultimate peril, the two outcasts must form an unbreakable eternal bond and give themselves completely to the overwhelming passion and love that engulfs them.

Candi Fox Social Media

Candi Fox, co-host of the wildly popular radio show Candi and Company with over 900 thousand listeners began her venture in the paranormal at the tender age of two, when she witnessed her first apparition. From that moment on the paranormal seemed to follow her. No matter where she moved, the house she lived in the house next door, or the house down the street always seemed to be haunted.

She often wondered if she drew the spirits to her. Little did she know that she was indeed a magnet of sorts. It wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she found people who could not only explain her gifts, but would also help her hone them. Armed with this new knowledge she began to openly explore hauntings and other paranormal phenomena.

Growing up in Indiana lent her the opportunity to explore many famous haunted places including the Hannah House, which was once part of the Underground Railroad. A little over two years ago she moved to Tulsa, OK and has began to explore the haunted landscape in a new state.

Candi lives with her husband, and furry children in Tulsa. She is passionate about the occult, saving and rehabilitating horses, horseback riding, magic, all things mystical and has her Reiki Mastery.

She uses her own paranormal experiences as well as her own life traumas to write from a grounded and realistic perspective about subjects that are hard to talk about and even harder to feel for yourself.
