Growth of Love By D Anne Paris @danneparis #RLFblog #paranormal #PNRGuest post by D Anne Paris. “The gift of ahh!”

How many times have you felt the need to get something special for your loved one? Maybe it’s their birthday or an anniversary or maybe there is really no event and you just want to do something special for them. You have brainstormed all the possible gifts you can get them but gifts just aren’t cutting it. You need something deeper, more impactful, something that will be special and memorable. I am a strong believer of gifting experiences instead of trinkets which will collect dust or add clutter. An experience will give them a memory that will be more special than any trinket. If this is something you’d want to get, then forward the link to this blog post to your special someone to give them the hint!
It may sound like an easy thing to just give an experience but it requires time to plan, some effort to bring the plan to fruition, thought to figure out what exactly will be appealing to your partner and diligence to see it through. So it does take a bit of time and effort but it shows how much you care.
One great experience you can give someone, especially someone who is always busy and barely has time to indulge on themselves is a spa day.
How to plan a whole day of pampering.
Obviously the first thing you need to do is to find out when they have time for a spa day. Sometimes it can be hard but you can get creative. Tell them you want to take them out and will need a couple of hours. Once you get them to confirm they blocked the time, call a spa and book a session for them. You can book them in for the works. Full body massage, facials, manicure and pedicure. Imagine, they have been having a really stressful time lately and when they finally get time off, you offer them this amazing time to chill, unwind and get pampered. The thought alone will bring tears to their eyes and then getting an all expense paid pampering session takes the cake. They will have an amazing time getting pampered and cared for while sipping a glass of something bubbling and nibbling on finger foods.
If you want to add to this experience you can add in something extra after the spa. When they have had the time of their life getting pampered you can give them a special candlelight dinner which can be shared by both of you. You can either have dinner in a fancy restaurant or have food delivered or better yet find a chef who comes to your home to make an exquisite meal for your candlelight dinner. Make sure the meal has most of your partner’s favorite foods.
After a day of being treated like royalty your partner will feel loved and appreciated.

Hearts Unloched by Claire Gem

A psychic interior designer reluctantly agrees to renovate a sexy investor’s abandoned hotel on a lake rumored to have once been the mob’s body dumping ground.
Interior designer Kate Bardach loves her single girl’s lifestyle—living in Manhattan and spending weekends at her lake house. She’s passionate about her career, reinventing old buildings. But there are some projects she can’t take on because of the spirits trapped there. Kate is psychic—she sees dead people.
Marco Lareci is one of Wall Street’s most successful investment brokers who’s achieved all of his life’s goals—except for finding his soulmate. His latest project, an abandoned resort on Loch Sheldrake, needs a savvy designer to transform the crumbling complex into a boutique hotel. When Marco meets Kate, he can’t believe his luck. She’s the perfect match for his business and his heart.
Marco’s body excites Kate even more than does his renovation project. But the haunting there, a bonafide poltergeist, affects her on an intensely personal level. Kate’s aunt disappeared from the place fifty years ago.
Will the spirit doom Kate and Marco’s love, or drive them closer together?

It's #FreeBookFriday on Romance Lives Forever with MJ Schiller #romance #RLFblogThe Heart Teaches Best by MJ Schiller

*This book is part of a collection not a series, different characters, different settings. They all center around people with “real” jobs, (teachers, firemen, construction workers, roadies…) unlike my other collections which feature rock stars and royalty. They can be read in any order.*
He’s the cop…
Cooper Sullivan is the cop in charge of investigating a murder outside of a Los Angeles night club. The famous romance author, Sydney Essex, has been found strangled in the parking lot. When the young officer returns to the scene of the crime the night after the murder, he gets involved in a fight in order to protect a woman, who he realizes afterward, is the victim’s sister. Soon he finds himself torn by his attraction to the irresistible blond teacher, and his need to maintain a professional distance.
She’s the teacher…
Laney Essex is distraught over her sister’s death, so the high school English teacher returns to the bar where the crime occurred to find answers. To her dismay, she is only left with more questions, many centered on her developing relationship with Cooper Sullivan. Is the pull she’s feeling towards him reciprocated, or is the handsome detective only showing her professional courtesy, or, perhaps, even pity?
…but he’s the one teaching her lessons of the heart.
When Laney receives a threatening phone call from Sydney’s murderer, it quickly becomes evident that the man who killed her sister is after her, too. Can Cooper figure out who the killer is before it’s too late? And if he does solve the case, will it just be another file stamped “CLOSED” in red and locked away in a drawer, or will the sparks that have been flying between the two finally ignite?

The Werewolves and Me: To Break a Warrior King's Curse by Kryssie Fortune @kryssiefortune #RLFblog #PNRGuest post by Kryssie Fortune
“Write what you know,” people say.
“It makes your writing come alive,” they say.
But I write about werewolves, vampires, former military men, and regency heroines. I don’t know any of them personally.
So, for my Scattered Siblings series, I cheated.
In my book, To Wed a Werewolf, the beta wolf, Giles, whose lies come home to roost is getting married. My son had just had an upmarket wedding at a five-star hotel. That went straight into my book – only with a werewolf bride and groom.
My second Scattered Siblings book, To Break a Warrior King’s Curse – formerly Curse of the Fae King – explains why the siblings are scattered and what the Fae’s Warrior King is doing about it. Then there’s my heroine, Meena. She lives in Whitby, the homeland of British Goths. I know the place well. Every place mentioned until Meena and Leonidas end up in the otherworld is visitable and beautiful. Also, my heroine’s a witch. Well… I’m no witch, but I have pagan leanings and Wicca fascinates me. The bit about it being too cold to work sky clad came straight from a talk I heard at the British Pagan conference a few years back.
In To Mate a Werewolf, Ellie, my heroine is a cook who tempts the werewolf alpha with her cakes. If I’m not writing, I’m baking. Add in that I’ve coached athletics and my daughter ran the London marathon, then it’s no surprise Ellie likes to run. I felt like I knew Ellie before I put pen to paper.
Another of my heroines, Viola in To Seduce an Omega has crippled knee. While I am no cripple, I’ve had trouble with my right knee for years. Adding her pain into the story came easy to me.
I’m Sagittarius, which means I get itchy feet. A few years back, I did a tour of the historical sites in Greece that I thought I’d only ever get to read about. Of course, there was fodder there for another story. In Seduced by the Vampire, Claimed by the Werewolf my vampire is a former Spartan. My werewolf is a former Macedonian prince, and although it’s never mentioned in the book, I had him pegged as a forefather of Alexander the Great. He certainly has the same coloring.
While I didn’t know many witches, werewolves, fae, or vampires, I can still put reality into my fantasy novel.

To Break a Warrior King’s Curse by Kryssie Fortune

Leonidas can fight anything except dark magic.
He inherited his father’s curse along with the Fae throne. Thanks to a rogue witch, if he doesn’t bed a different woman every month, he’ll turn feral. A man can only stand so much meaningless sex. No wonder he hates witches.
When he meets Meena, he intends to seduce her, not love her.
Meena’s a witch who never developed any powers.
Banished to the mundane world, she masquerades as human. When she accidentally bonds with an escaped war dragon, Leonidas comes to reclaim it. His enemies strip him of his powers, and his month’s almost up.
What happens when he discovers she’s a witch? And how will this warrior king cope when his curse kicks in and forces him into another woman’s bed.
Please note this book was previously sold with the title Curse of the Fae King.

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie reads everything and anything, from literary fiction to sizzling romance. Her earliest memory is going to the library with her mother. She can’t have been more than two at the time. Reading, especially when a book’s hot and explicit, is more than a guilty pleasure. It’s an obsession.
Kryssie loves to visit historic sites, from Hadrian’s Wall to Regency Bath. The first book she fell in love with was Georgette Heyer’s The Unkown Ajax. After that, she devoured every regency book she could. After a while, they went out of fashion, but part of Kryssie’s psyche lives in Regency London. She longs to dance quadrilles and flirt behind fans. Of course, Kryssie’s heroines do far more than flirt.
Kryssie lives in Bridlington on the Yorkshire coast –about thirty miles from Whitby, where Bram Stoker wrote Dracula. She enjoys gardening, travel, and socializing with her author friends. You’d be surprised how many erotic romance authors live in the North of England.

Today’s featured book is Lead Me Into Temptation, a Historical Western Romance by Devon McKay

Violet Webster is a bride on the run. The last thing she wants is to get married, especially to a stranger twice her age. However, agreeing to be a mail-order bride had been her only option and it paid the steep passage to San Francisco so she could locate her father. She’d find him too, if only her betrothed’s son would stay out of her way.

Garrett Sutherlin is on a mission. Delivering the striking, ebony haired beauty to his father’s doorstep not only paid off his debt, the effort would grant him freedom from the man’s condescending hold. As far as he’s concerned, Miss Webster made her own bed.

Unfortunately, his father will be the one to lie beside her.
