Meet Mason Harding from Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome Mason from Arresting Mason, a new romantic suspense by Amber Daulton.

Introducing Mason Harding

Age: 29
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Aurora, Colorado
Profession: Mechanic
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
Mason has dark brown spiky hair, emerald-green eyes, and a tan from his job. He’s six feet tall, muscled and tattooed, and a few old scars cover his chest.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Mason made some foolish mistakes as a teenager, and then ended up in jail. Though he joined a prison gang, he gave it up after the State released him on parole. He’s doing his best stay out of trouble, but the people from his past aren’t ready to let him go.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Mia Eddison is a feisty boutique owner who sees past Mason’s hard, cocky shell for the kind, vulnerable man he is inside.
How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Mason dropped out of high school but earned his GED in prison. He used a lot of his spare time to read law books and literary classics in the prison library. Though he doesn’t have much formal education, he’s self-taught and highly intelligent.
What special skills does your character rely on?
Mason knows how to fight, and that comes in handy for him when he and Mia are in trouble.
What is your character’s family like?
Mason has an overprotective older brother, Alan, who is determined to make Mason walk a straight and narrow line. He has a young nephew who is absolutely adorable, and a former brother-in-law whom he considers a close friend. He’s not close with his parents, but Mia and Alan are trying to get him to reconcile with his mom.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Shades of gray. He’s made too many mistakes and done too many bad things to see the world as straight forward as black-and-white.
How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption?
Most women find him hot and only care about the exterior packaging, and most men find him shady or dangerous. These assumptions are correct. Mason is one sexy man, and he’s hiding a bunch of secrets that could cost him his life. Deep down, however, he’s a good man and determined to do everything in his power to protect those he loves from his past.
Does your character care about those assumptions?
No. Mason doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him, except for Mia and his brother. He wants them to think of him as a good person.
What is your hero’s biggest personal flaw?
His temper. Mason gets angry way too quick and says things he regrets.
What is your hero’s breaking point?
Mason wants to live his life under the radar from cops and criminals alike, but when Mia’s life is threatened, he reverts to his old ways to save her. He would do anything for her, no matter the price to his own soul.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Because I’m sexy. No, not buyin’ that? All right, well, let’s see. I think my writer, Amber, chose to write about me because everyone deserves a second chance at life and to right their wrongs. I’ve made mistakes, I’ll be the first to admit it, and Amber wanted to show my redemption. I can’t thank her enough for it.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
That’s a loaded question. Though I like Amber a lot, she deserves a spanking for revealing all the crap I’ve been through, but the main thing I wish she would’ve kept just between us is the incident in the shower room. I was still in prison at the time, and a few pricks attacked me. Though I managed to fight them off before they got what they wanted from me, it was the most humiliating experience of my life, and not something I wanted blasted all over the Internet. But since you can read about it in my book, I guess I’m all right with telling ya about it here.
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?
Amber loves writing about me and Mia, either when we’re in the bedroom or just having dinner together. She’s a hopeless romantic. Each time she would write about my past, however, she would cry a little, and I know it hurt her to share my secrets.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Jim Borden, Mia’s arrogant brother and my parole officer, needs a lady love to knock him down a few pegs, and I would love to read that story! My brother, Alan, deserves a story too. He’s raising his son alone after his ex-wife skipped town, and I would do anything to see Alan happy with a good woman at his side.
Listen up, and I’ll let you in on a little secret. Amber is one smart cookie, and she’s already hard at work editing Jim’s and Alan’s stories. Just wait. They’re going to be great!

Writing is the fruit of happiness.
Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isn’t so Zen.
As a fan of contemporary, paranormal, and historical romance novels alike, she can’t get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of adventure, laughter, and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. She probably wouldn’t be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, what’s a girl to do when people are jabbering away in her head and it’s hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.

My Texas Heart by Bonnie Phelps @bonniephelps15 #RLFblog #NewRelease #ContemporaryRomanceBonnie Phelps, 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.

My Texas Heart: The Texas Kincaids #3 by Bonnie Phelps

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Divorced from one woman who put her career ahead of everything – including their young son, Chad – Josh Kincaid isn’t about to make that same mistake twice. If he ever falls in love again, it’s going to be with a woman who puts family first. Chad is the most important thing in Josh’s life and he’ll do whatever it takes to be an active part of his life. But his ex has other plans and painfully shy Josh has to step up and fight for his son.
Feisty and driven, Fiona Reilly has plans. She left home to break away from the expectations that she marry and stay home to raise a passel of children. Nothing wrong with that life – it’s just not for her. Instead, she’s going to make something of herself and build a business to be reckoned with. In no hurry to fall in love, Josh and his adorable son capture her heart, forcing her to choose between her dreams and building the home she didn’t know she wanted.
Love has a way of messing up even the best of intentions…
Why did you write this book?
My Texas Heart is the third book in The Texas Kincaids series. Josh is the youngest of the brothers and has always felt like the odd man out. Quiet, nerdy, and shy he didn’t occupy the same universe as his oldest brother – a large animal vet – and his middle brother – a national team roping rodeo champion. I wanted to explore how his shyness and introversion impacted his fight to protect his son when he knew the boy’s well-being was threatened by his ex-wife. I also wanted to introduce him to a soulmate who could help him break out of his shell. Feisty and driven Fiona was the perfect woman for the job but she also had her own demons to slay. Sometimes life is about finding the dream you didn’t know you wanted.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read mostly romance – contemporary, suspense, and historical – because I’m fascinated watching the dance two people go through as they build to their personal happily ever after. We all come with baggage and it is how we shift it around to make room for another person in our life. Romance aside, I love any book with a strong story and well-developed characters so also read mysteries, thrillers, political dramas, and historical fiction – especially about world war II.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Stephanie Plum (from a series of books by Janet Evanovich). Stephanie makes me laugh with all the crazy messes she gets herself in to. She wears her foibles and insecurities on her sleeve. She can visualize herself as a badass bounty hunter yet usually trips walking across the grass. I know I’m a woman who leads a quiet life but I secretly fantasize about being the badass who comes to the rescue.
What are you working on at the moment?
I had thought that I would end The Texas Kincaids series with Josh’s book but a storyline for Crystal – one of their cousins who has a minor role in the other books – grabbed hold and wouldn’t let go. In my work in progress Crystal’s being stalked by by a guy she dated a few times when her childhood crush, and one of Josh’s best friends, returns to town as a wounded Army veteran.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
My Army Ranger – a novella that I think will be the last book in The Texas Kincaids series – is due out in December 2018.

Bonnie Phelps Social Media

Rumor has it that Bonnie began telling stories at a very early age. Photos exist of the author toddling around the corner of the house covered in mud babbling about magic rabbits leading her through the garden. Her parents were amused – until they discovered she had also walked across the newly poured cement patio – which only added fuel to the fire of her passion for writing. From then on, her active imagination continued to churn out plots and character sketches always wondering how different people would behave in similar situations.
Bonnie used her writing skills throughout her professional life as a fundraiser and marketer for several nonprofits. She enjoyed the chance to tell and share the story of worthy organizations. In the late 1980s, Bonnie authored a syndicated column in several California newspapers in which she shared the experiences and misadventures of life as a wife and mother. The jury is out on whether or not her children always appreciated her candor. Because Bonnie has romance in her soul, she also worked as a Wedding Planner for several years. Absolutely loved it!! She craves anything sweet, revels in any chance to travel, and is addicted to tracing her family’s roots. A native Californian, the author lives in Northern California with her husband.

Meet Mikhail Matheson from Wolf of Her Own by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRLet’s meet Mikhail Matheson from Wolf of her Own by NJ Walters, 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 Wolf of her Own by NJ Walters

Title Wolf of her Own
Genre Paranormal Romance/Shapeshifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Mikhail Matheson may be an outsider in Salvation, but he stays with the pack to be close to his sister. It has nothing to with the fact that Elise—the most fascinating woman he’s ever laid eyes on—is part of the pack. Mikhail has wanted Elise for years, but being with her could cost him his life. Soon he’ll have to decide if he’s going to leave the pack or risk it all to pursue a place at her side.
After escaping her abusive mate, Elise LaForge has made a home in Salvation with her sons. She never expected to have her emotions stirred up by the always serious and seriously handsome Mikhail. But can she finally put her past behind her and dare to move on?
When danger creeps into the pack, both she and Mikhail have to be willing to sacrifice everything to have a chance at love.

Introducing Mikhail Matheson

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 62 But because he’s a werewolf he looks in his 40s.
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Sitka, Alaska
Profession: Former wilderness guide, now a furniture maker.
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Werwolf
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
*shrugs* I’m 6’3″ and about 240lbs. My hair is dark brown with streaks of gray, which I blame on my much younger sister. My eyes are green.
Tell us about yourself, please.
I spent most of my life in the Alaskan wilderness guiding humans and trying to stay out of the way of my packmates. I would have left years ago if it weren’t for my sister. When she was forced to run from the pack I followed her to Salvation, North Carolina. I liked the pack she joined, so I stayed.
Who is the significant other in your life?
That would be Elise LaForge, the most amazing woman you’ll ever meet. She makes a hell of a fantastic pie, too.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I don’t have a whole lot of formal education beyond the basics. I went to work from the time I was a teenager, guiding folks through the Alaskan wilderness. I’ve read and learned whatever I’ve needed to in order to survive.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I never needed much. I prefer to spend most of my time outside. Never had a home of my own, as I travelled a lot and wanted to stay close to my sister to watch out for her. I’ve always made money and banked it, so I have more than enough to live on. I’m not afraid of hard work. I want more now that I have my sights set on Elise LaForge. A man wants to give his woman whatever she wants or needs. Problem is, she already has pretty much everything she could want, except me. She needs someone to love her.
Are you close to family?
The only family I’m close to is my sister, Rina. I was never close to my parents, even less so after I found out they tried to make my sister mate with a wolf while I was away, forcing her to run. Needless to say, there won’t be any family reunions any time soon. I finally found Rina with the Salvation Pack. She’s happy here. I’m happy for her, but I want some of that happiness for myself.
Do you care about what others assume about you?
I’ve never cared what anyone thought of me until now. Now I care what Elise thinks. I want her to love and accept me and know that I see the amazingly strong and sexy woman she is, even if she doesn’t always see it herself.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
Hell yes, I can keep a secret. I’m a werewolf. I don’t exactly run around telling people that. An even bigger secret is my relationship with Elise. I don’t care who knows, but she does. She worries about her sons and how they’d react if they found out about us. And since her eldest son is the pack alpha that could lead to some trouble. The secret won’t last long. It can’t in a pack as close-knit as this one.
Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?
The person who could hurt me the most is Elise. I don’t know what I’d do if I ever lost her. A wolf isn’t meant to be alone, but there is no other woman in the world for me but her. I waited over sixty years to find her. I never understood just how lonely I was until I met her. She’s my heart.

Kinky Briefs, Cinque by Seelie Kay

Genre: erotic, contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Take a kinky romp through Lawyerland, where erotic encounters, sizzling partnerships, and euphoric flights of fantasy consume lawyers in love!
A young lawyer’s wicked pen unleashes erotic flights of fantasy, spinning tales of a sensual Sheikh and his lawyer wife who battle terrorism despite a price on their heads, a former rocker turned lawyer faced with a life-altering decision, a law school ménage a trois gone wrong, and a criminal defense attorney whose practice tips into the paranormal. The naughty yarns continue with a medieval adventure, a secret agent’s obsession with a law professor, a Lady turned lawyer fighting to regain her footing after a profound loss, a law student who strips to fund her studies, a fledging lawyer questioning a sexy deal with the devil, and a kinky lawyer fighting a chronic illness. This scintillating collection of ten sizzling short stories will make you laugh, they’ll make you cry, and yes, they’ll even make you blush, but in the end, you’ll run out and buy a set of handcuffs. Because you’re going to want to experience at least one of these hot little fantasies!
Why did you write this book?
After finishing four compilations of short stories, there were some characters I wanted to continue to develop and some stories I wanted to bring to a natural conclusion. This was the best way to do that.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love crime thrillers, like the J.D. Robb series, but I am also partial to erotic romance. In fact, I got through law school by reading steamy romance!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Lt. Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s books. (Nora Roberts is J.D. Robb.) That woman is fierce, a true avenging angel, someone who fights for truth, justice, and the American way–in the future.
What are you working on at the moment?
I just completed my 2018 holiday short, The President’s Daughter, and am about to begin working on a book about four former law school classmates who get dumped by their husbands, but band together to fight back.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Kinky Briefs, Cinque will be released June 1 and The President’s Wife will be coming out in July.

Cry Me a River by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalToday’s featured book is Cry Me a River by Livia Quinn.

Is it Mayberry or Middle Earth? – The Paramortals have a saying, “One meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.” Our new sheriff said it differently, “Paramortal, my A**!”

My name is Tempest Pomeroy. For nineteen years I denied my heritage, until my brother’s genie bottle went missing. Time is running out for River, and the attraction that was growing between me and Sheriff Jack Lang derailed after a series of shocks sent us both reeling, and he got his first glimpse of my Paramortal “talents” – a few measly bolts of lightning aimed at his—in his general direction. In the course of the investigation we’ve 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”. My ex-lover, but after we answer Jack’s questions, he’ll either join us, or grab his daughter and take the first jet out of Middle Earth.

He might help me save my brother and discover the whereabouts of my parents, but he probably won’t still want to take me to the Mardi Gras ball, once he knows “everything”. There’s a lot of everything.
