Stranded with the Cyborg

Cara Bristol
Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock has been transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.

Preferring solitude to intimacy, Mason Tucker’s relatives make it difficult to escape social gatherings and small talk. When Emma’s mother marries into his family, he finds himself reluctantly drawn to the beautiful woman who is his complete opposite. But after helping her through a terrible discovery, Emma begins to break down some of Mason’s communication barriers and insecurities.
When Emma asks for his assistance in tracking down a secret, Mason tags along in order to keep her safe. Unfortunately, not everyone has Emma’s safety in mind when danger waits for the perfect opportunity to strike.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Robin Michaela, author of Baby, Count on Me, a contemporary 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.
You don’t always get a second chance on your first love.
Workaholic CPA Jenna Carmichael has played it safe all her life, except for once back in college when she gambled on romance and ended up with heartbreak. Her domineering father controlled every aspect of her world back then, and still does, but Jenna’s been nurturing a tiny spark of defiance and it’s finally ready to blaze to life.
Mechanical engineer Beau Davis saw plenty of excitement during his military service. Now, he’s ready to settle down in the cozy rural town of Sweetness, Georgia. The trouble is, he can’t find a woman who stirs his heart the way his college sweetheart did, and he’s been comparing women to her ever since.
When Jenna comes to Sweetness to audit the small town’s government grant, she and Beau are reunited. What will they be willing to risk for a second chance at love?
Genre: Contemporary
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
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?
Yes and no. Baby, Count on Me is my first book, but I’ve written two others since this one was published.
this book is part of a series?
Yes. This is Book #1 in the Southern Hearts series (it’s a standalone, with an HEA, though). The second book is Baby, That’s the Spirit!, which tells the story of Beau’s cousin, Amethyst. She’s a clairvoyant who sees ghosts, but her love interest thinks the whole thing is ca-ca..
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Sadly, yes. I lose sleep when I’m writing all of my books. I keep turning plots over and over in my head.
you did research for this book?
Not really. It takes place in the North Georgia Mountains not far from where I live so I was familiar with the settings in some scenes (like the river tubing scene).
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
This book is about humans…no shifters, pets, etc. Book #2, however, has a few ghosts in it, as well as Amethyst’s black cat, Boo.
this book has more than one genre?
This one is strictly contemporary. Book 2 in the series (Baby, That’s the Spirit!) is contemporary with some paranormal elements
you speak more than one language?
I had three years of German in high school and can only remember about 20 words now. So, no…
you grew up where you live now?
No, I grew up in Florida, but now I live in Georgia.
you love to read?
Yes, in fact that’s one of the things I miss most about being an author. I don’t read as much as I used to because I’m always writing.
you are never late?
My Handsome Prince wishes that I was on time, but I have to admit to usually being on either right on the nose or a teensy bit late for most things (I’m always trying to get one more word on my manuscript…)
you love pizza?
I do! Especially Hawaiian pizza (Canadian bacon and pineapple on top. Yum!)
you love sushi?
Not really, but I can get by with California Rolls in a pinch.
you have a pet?
Yes, I’m owned by two cats, Cleo and Boo.
Where can we find your book online?
Amazon: http://amzn.to/2gVDvKH or read it free on Kindle Unlimited.

Robin Michaela has been reading romances since her teen years, when she first snuck her aunt’s copy of The Flame and the Flower, by Kathleen Woodiwiss.
She’s married to her own Handsome Prince (a military airman) and has lived everywhere from the sunny shores of Florida to the wild crags of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. She currently resides in the Deep South. By day, she’s a dental hygienist and by night, Robin can be found eating chocolate, training for her next half marathon, and crafting her next novel (although not necessarily in that order).
Robin’s stories have been called “a simply delicious escape”. Sparks fly and desire sizzles when her irresistible heroines challenge the men of their dreams.

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.

Storm Crazy Bonus Edition (Books 1 and 2)

Storm Crazy Bonus Edition is Book 1 and 2 in the Destiny Paramortals’ world of tempestaeries (storm witches), dragons, shifters, vampires and fae.
Welcome to Destiny, or I should say Middle Earth…
*Jack Lang, sheriff, former Navy pilot. * To say Destiny was not what I expected would be like saying Wolverine’s fingernails were long enough for a manicure. I’d been looking for Mayberry, a quaint little safe town to raise my daughter. That ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy, who turned out to be a storm witch with a djinni brother and an ex who was… hell, I don’t know what he is. But I wasn’t sure I could stay. I had a teenage daughter to consider.
*Tempe Pomeroy, Tempestaerie, mail lady, and – as Jack likes to say – trouble magnet.* Isn’t it just like a man to exit a relationship when he finds out a woman has a few little secrets? Following Jack’s, um, enlightenment, he finally started investigating my little brother’s disappearance, but time is running out and our relationship has gone from attraction to suspicion, support to friendship, romance to oh-my-god-get-away-from-me revulsion.
Jack’s an ex-Navy pilot. He says he wants to know “everything”. He may stick around, help me save my brother and discover the whereabouts of my parents, but I doubt he’ll still want to take me to the Mardi Gras ball, once he knows “everything”. He’ll probably take the first jet out of Middle Earth. ‘Cause there’s a lot of everything…
Book five, Take These Broken Wings completes Tempe and Jack’s um…series of epiphanies, grin. But the series continues with River’s story, Blood Moon, book six, available now for 99 cents in the Moonlight Magic box.

Genre Paranormal

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Be #Canceraware #Cancer doesn’t discriminate – with Iris Blobel @_iris_b #RLFblogHere’s a personal post from my friend, romance author Iris Blobel.

Thanks to Kayelle for the opportunity to write this special post outside the October Awareness month, but I suppose it’s something we should all think of occasionally during the whole year.
I was diagnosed with Breast cancer late 2016. I found a lump and had a mammogram that came up with nothing, ditto with the ultrasound and in the end it was a biopsy, which confirmed the uncomfortable truth. Just before Christmas! And an 8-month-journey of highs and lows began.
Cancer was always something “others had” – family, friends, colleagues, neighbours … the list is long, but I never thought that my otherwise sickly body would throw that illness at me as well. I was upset and angry, at the same time I had, and still have heaps to live for: my little family.
In hindsight, what is manifested in my mind about that time is a terrible three days after the first chemo treatment and the poor nurses trying to find a vein for each treatment. My arm was bruised and battered. However, what I remember most is the outpouring of love, help, and kindness. The old saying “you find out who your friends are when you need them” is completely true. I’ve been lucky, not in being diagnosed with it, but having to only “fight” for eight months. Of course, it’s a constant part of my life now, but I do my best to ignore it. It was eight month out of a whole lifetime – a whole wonderful lifetime which I can spend with my family, friends – near and far -, colleagues … when we put our mind to something, we can do anything!
But please … be cancer aware. Do self-checks and if you feel uncertain, go and see your GP.
The final chapter, in a way, of this journey was my travel to New Zealand in September – to close the door on everything. To move on. To rejuvenate. To have fun. It’s a beautiful country, which I love it … so much that I wrote a book, partly set in the south island. I wish for readers to be able to escape to NZ for a little while and know there’s beauty in the world and so much to live for.

 

Today’s featured book is Their Bond Through Jade, a contemporary romance by Iris Blobel.
Pikorua, the Maori name for the symbol, is a twist that is said to symbolise the strength of the bond between two people. Mat is certain there is something between Tiffany and him.
Be #Canceraware #Cancer doesn’t discriminate – with Iris Blobel @_iris_b #RLFblogWhen Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories flood her mind of the previous year and a relationship gone bad. Frightened, she calls her friend, Steve, for help, but instead a stranger answers the phone. Little does Tiffany know how much this New Zealander is going to impact her life, especially after she is assaulted only a few hours later.
Mat Apanui, the owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can’t ignore the worry in Tiffany’s voice when he answers Steve’s phone. Before he knows it, he is spending most of his business trip to Melbourne with her. Desperate to keep her safe after an attack, he invites her to stay with him in Queenstown, NZ.
With her safety at risk, how will Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust the sexy stranger enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?

Let’s meet Nicodemus Wilde from Drakon’s Past, a new paranormal romance. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Let’s talk.

About Drakon’s Past

Title Drakon’s Past
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Constance Owens has a gift for finding unique items in the most unlikely places, which comes in handy since she buys and sells artifacts and antiques for a living. When she purchases a set of four dragon statues, she has no idea just how unique they are, or that finding them will thrust her into a world of secret societies, men who think nothing of kidnapping and murder to get what they want, and dragon shifters.
Nic hasn’t survived for four thousand years by letting his guard down, and he doesn’t trust anyone except his drakon brothers. The loneliness haunting him has been getting worse since all his brothers have found their mates. And when he finds the woman his drakon recognizes instantly as his fated mate, he doubts he’ll ever have what his brothers have, because it seems she’s involved with the secret society of hunters who have been hunting and capturing his kind for hundreds of years.

Introducing Nicodemus Wilde

Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A small village in the Middle East that has long since gone to dust.
Profession: I buy and sell interesting items. And I gamble when I’m in the mood.
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
In my human form, I’m 6’9″ with black shoulder-length hair and black eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the entire left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern that is red and outlined in the same black as my eyes.
Tell us about yourself, please.
Of all my siblings, I’m the most outgoing and the most handsome, if I do say so myself. I collect all sorts of interesting items and I like to gamble. Keeps life interesting.
Who is the significant other in your life?
*leans forward aggressively* Why do you want to know? Constance is mine.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I’ve lived in caves…literally. I’ve also lived in palaces. I’ve been around a long time. Of the two, I much prefer the palace. Currently, I have homes all around the world, but I prefer the small home I built for myself in the Arizona desert. When I’m in Vegas, I always keep a hotel suite.
What is your viewpoint on wealth?
I’d rather have it than not.
What is your family like?
We put the fun in dysfunction. To say we have parental issues is an understatement of gigantic proportions. I don’t see my brothers as often as I’d like, but I love them and would die for them. Hell, I’m living for them, when there are many days I’d rather not.
How well do you know your neighbors?
Drakon’s don’t do neighbors. I may like to hang out around humans to keep life interesting, but I hate having neighbors. When I want to relax, I want solitude.
Do you see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Life is filled with shades of gray. But know one thing, you attack me or my family and I’m coming for you. That is black and white with zero shades of gray.
What would you like to tell your writer?
Took you long enough to write my story. Why did I have to go last just because I’m the youngest brother? But I am glad that the adventures don’t end with my book. And I got my happy ending, so I guess I’ll forgive you for making me wait.

Karen Cino Social Media

Karen Cino is a multi-published author of eight novels, two novellas and a book of poems and has been writing since she was fourteen years old. She started her career by writing poetry, short stories and writing article for her high school newspaper. After reading Jackie Collin’s Lovers and Gamblers and Jacqueline Susann’s, Valley of the Dolls, Karen found her niche. She wanted to write women’s fiction and wrote her first book during the summer before she started college. Her daily walks down at the boardwalk are what gets her muse going. It clears her mind and helps her find realistic plot ideas and the characters boosting up her muse. Karen loves writing about local places that people can relate to. The late Paul Zindel’s books took place in Staten Island and reading them, especially My Darling My Hamburger, still brings back many memories for her.

Karen loves the summer, loves the beach. Her books are written in Staten Island, and take place in various places across Staten Island. Karen relocated to Barnegat, New Jersey in 2015. She traded in the Staten Island Boardwalk for the shoreline in Long Beach Island.

Karen has two children, Michael Giordano who’s a singer, songwriter and producer, and Nicole Giordano who works at Home Depot and is also a photographer. In 2014 Karen married John Gatti. Her husband is an actor, teacher and attorney.
