Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
My name is Kai Okamoto. I deal drugs. Trade escapism for cold, hard cash.
Born to a British Mother and a Japanese father, I grew up poor, hungry, and alone. Hiding from the monsters at our door. The debt collectors.
I’ve worked hard to escape my past. I’m not that frightened little boy anymore. I’m wealthy, secure, and sure of myself. At least I was, until I met Lily.
Lily is a good girl. The kind of girl I should stay away from. I should, but I can’t. I hate lying to her, but if she finds out who I am, what I do, I won’t see her for dust.

Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in 3rd person. She’s a self-published author who loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl. She’s an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits :-) She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral :-)

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground, thankfully) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home. She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it’s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories. From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things. No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She’s been married so long she’s tenured.

Welcome Adam Mann author of Don’t Take Your Shoes Off, a new titillating romance
Why did you write this book?
I’ve always been fascinated and admired ladies who wear high heels, especially if they have nice legs.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I like reading thrillers, war, adventure stories.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Mr. Micawber from Charles Dickens.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am preparing a new marketing program for the 30 or so books I have written.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I often find myself writing several novels at a time, as my mood takes me, but my next to be published will feature a bank, a beautiful lady detective, and a smash and grab villain.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
There is no doubt about it; ladies who wear high heels look great. I don’t know the sales figures but I’m sure that high heeled shoes must be one of the market leaders. But that’s not my point – my impression here is to try to offer three stories about ladies who have worn high heels with spectacular results:
Red High Heels is set in London, probably in the 1990’s. The man who appreciates the high heels is a stem-cell research scientist, who tries to help Roxanne put on her Red High Heels. Roger does a better job when she takes them off.
Helga’s Red Thigh Boots is set in Rotterdam, when climate change is beginning to emerge as a serious problem. The lady, Hufflepuff, wears high heels as she is tiny, but when Fred takes her to Canada in the winter she needs warmer shoes, so long red leather thigh boots is her solution.
Black High Heels starts off in the early 2000’s, when international aid is beginning to open up the economy in emerging economies like Vietnam, which brings an enjoyable clash of cultures between a Brit adviser and a lady graduate who takes off her black high heels.

Unmasking Lady Helen: Kinsey Family #1 Maggi Andersen @ymaggiandersen #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceMaggi Andersen author of Unmasking Lady Helen – The Kinsey Family Book One answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.
Maggi Andersen fell in love with the Georgian and Regency worlds while reading the books of Georgette Heyer. After studying for a BA and an MA in Creative Writing, she decided to write her own. She has written over 25 novels and novellas and is working on her third Regency series. Maggi also writes historical mysteries, contemporary romantic suspense, and two young adult novels. Her books are constant bestsellers on Amazon and many have been nominated for awards. Maggi’s free time is spent feeding the local wildlife, reading, gym, movies, and BBC2. She lives in the beautiful Southern Highlands of Australia.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
Roast lamb with mint sauce, broccoli, pumpkin, and baked potatoes. Apple pie and cream.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
I’m presently reading Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child. Reacher is a ruthless killer, but with a sense of honor. He coolly works through any problems he faces, and at 6 ft 5 and two-fifty pounds with a 50″ chest, and ‘assassin’s blue eyes’, he’s definitely hot. If I was ever in danger, I’d want him around. I’m considering basing a Regency hero on him. I think he’d make a very good one.
Describe the perfect vacation.
A villa in the south of France, enjoying the local wines and food. Swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. Popping over to Cannes for the film festival.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?.
Romantic suspense, and mysteries, either historical or contemporary.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
My research tends to wander from the language of flowers to a recipe for casseroled grouse. Terrible time waster. I’m writing a contemporary romantic suspense so I’m researching hand guns. One that fits in a lady’s handbag. For my Regency series, anything about spies, the Prince of Wales, his court, customs, fashions, food and architecture, plus the Napoleonic era. I have some wonderful books with glossy pictures of English estates and gardens.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Sometimes the biggest risk we take is with our hearts.
1821 London
At twenty-four, Lady Helen Kinsey has her future carefully mapped out. A life of gentle quietude in the country caring for her unmarried brothers and walking with her dog. It does not include marriage, a dream she banished after her first Season. But when a handsome earl enters Kinsey House in London on a mission to find out why their footman was poisoned, she finds herself drawn into solving the mystery. And despite resistance on her part worthy of an army maneuver, she is irresistibly drawn to the earl himself.

After Whitehall receives a letter warning of a plot against the Crown, Jason, Captain Lord Peyton, is sent to investigate. Surely the famous explorer, Lord Lawrence Kinsey could not be behind it. He is engrossed in roaming ancient libraries and tombs in the East and bringing back their treasures for the museum. But after Peyton finds a fragment of a burned letter it appears that something dangerous lurks in Kinsey House, and Peyton becomes determined to keep the defenseless family safe, and one member particularly. Lady Helen has built a wall around herself and holds him at arm’s length. But arm’s length is not where Peyton wants to be.

As the mystery unfolds it becomes imperative for Peyton and Lady Helen to work together, very closely indeed.

A Touch of Flame by Caris Roane @carisroane #RLFblog #Paranormal #PNRToday’s featured book is A Touch of Flame, a Paranormal Romance by Caris Roane.

A powerful alpha wolf. A gifted witch. Each haunted by death. Can passion drive them to an everlasting love? Or will the enemy forge a hopeless chasm?

Braden should have died in the Graveyard, but the witch, Maeve, saved him. The call of his wolf is on him and he wants her. She can be his alpha-mate. But she has powers that can destroy him and a disrupted memory that holds the answers to his wife’s murder. Can he ever trust a woman who can kill with the power she streams from her bare hands?

Maeve has known only horror, death and destruction since her arrival in Five Bridges as a transformed alter witch. She goes to the Graveyard nightly to rescue those left for dead by the evil rampant in all five territories of her new world. She fears the power she possesses and the gaps in her memory frighten her more than anything else. But when she rescues Braden from an attack in the Graveyard and she realizes she’s drawn to the handsome wolf, the nightmare really begins.

Caris Roane began her career with Kensington Publishing and wrote Regency Romance as Valerie King. In 2005, Romantic Times Magazine honored her with a career achievement award for her Regency work. To-date, she has published eighty-nine books. Thirty-nine of those are paranormal romances, some self-published and some with St. Martin’s Press.

Though her stories conjure up hunky PNR warriors, like vampires and wolf-shifters, the romance is everything, including a satisfying Happily Ever After. Her hope is that you’ll become engrossed in the lives of her tortured heroes and her worthy women as they wage war, as they make love, and as they face the tough issues of life and relationships!

Caris live in the Phoenix area, in the city of Buckeye. When not writing, she is a real homebody. She loves gardening, sewing, and cooking. (Um, cleaning, not so much!) She also enjoys creating jewelry and frequently offers her handcrafted, PNR bracelet giveaways to her newsletter and blog subscribers. You can sign up for both on her Home Page. Caris’ motto: Live the Fang!
