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

Taking her history degree dangerously, Jessie tells the stories of courageous heroines, the men who dared to love them, and the world that tried to defeat them.

Jessie makes her home in the great state of New Hampshire where she lives with her husband and two very opinionated Basset Hounds.

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?

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.
