What if changing your name is all it takes to change your life?
Return to her ten-year reunion as a lowly traffic manager? No way. Izzy Gordon is determined to become a filmmaker by creating a documentary about the gangster history of an old lodge. But her parents own the property and want to sell – and the lodge owners are fighting to stay open. So Izzy decides not to tell anyone who she really is.
Gib Murphy, globe-trotting photojournalist, is home recovering from an injury he got on a deadly assignment in Afghanistan. All he wants is some peace. Instead, he’s landed in the middle of his grandparents’ battle to keep the lodge they’ve run for forty years. And then he meets Izzy – and it’s lights, camera, action! But when he discovers her real identity, will their blockbuster beginning become a box-office flop?

The Mad Monk’s Treasure by Kris Bock

The lost Victorio Peak treasure is the stuff of legends—a heretic Spanish priest’s gold mine, made richer by the spoils of bandits and an Apache raider. When Erin, a quiet history professor, uncovers a clue that may pinpoint the lost treasure cave, she prepares for adventure. But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she’s not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy?
Erin isn’t sure she can trust Drew with her heart, but she’ll need his help to track down the treasure. She heads into the New Mexico wilderness with her brainy best friend Camie and a feisty orange cat. The wilderness holds its own dangers, from wild animals to sudden storms. Plus, the sinister men hunting Erin are determined to follow her all the way to the treasure, no matter where the twisted trail leads. Erin won’t give up an important historical find without a fight, but is she ready to risk her life—and her heart?
“The story has it all – action, romance, danger, intrigue, lost treasure, not to mention a sizzling relationship…”
“Great balance of history, romance, and adventure. Smart romance with an ‘Indiana Jones’ feel.”

Lies and Solace by Jana Richards @AlexaAston #RLFblog #contemporary #romanceJana Richards, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here!

Lies and Solace, Book 1 by Jana Richards

She can’t live with one more lie. He can’t tell the truth.
Harper Lindquist is convinced she’s found the answer to her financial prayers. Unless she pours cash into crumbling Solace Lake Lodge, she’ll lose her family’s legacy. Her would-be savior arrives in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard and she’s determined to prove to her reluctant, and trapped, financier the lodge is a sound investment. But Harper isn’t completely honest with him. And she has no idea the lake is hiding secrets of its own.
Ethan James is a liar, but his money is very real. He isn’t convinced a broken-down inn is a smart investment opportunity. But the more he understands Harper’s dreams and desires, the more he wants to be the man to make them come true. The trauma in both their pasts means neither can fully trust the other. They must find the courage to love, to trust, and to accept, or yesterday’s sorrows will keep them apart.

When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.
In her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg, Canada with their Pug/Terrier cross Lou and several unnamed goldfish. She loves to hear from readers.

Mystic by Gabi Stevens

Genre: Urban Fantasy

How could a good deed go so wrong?

Trask Sinclair enjoys his life as a famous author living in New York City. His greatest adventures come from the characters in his books. But after stepping in to protect a woman on the run–a woman with eyes that speak of hidden depth, intrigue, and loneliness–Trask is suddenly pulled into a world he never could have written.

Allys Joel sees the future when she touches someone. That’s why a Wall Street firm held her prisoner for sixteen months. Escaping, with Trask’s help, puts both their lives at risk. When conventional travel proves impossible, they must journey cross-country to get to the safety of the mysterious town of Mystic, Wyoming. As they fight for their lives, their freedom, and a possible budding romance, they must come face to face with the reality–and secrets–that may change their lives forever.

Perfect on Paper by Kristina Knight

Genre Contemporary
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Nicholas Vega started ManServants as a way to make extra cash in college; five years later, his business is bigger than he ever imagined. And it’s in trouble. An angry ex-client wants to sue because one of his employees didn’t sleep with her. To keep things going, Nick takes on a client of his own – his best friend Daisy MacIntosh.
Daisy needs a boyfriend in a bad way. Her current boss – and ex-lover – has planned a retreat and makes no bones about wanting her back in his bed, at least for the weekend. Daisy wants a barrier between them, and an on-paper boyfriend seems like the best idea.
The problem? Once they’re playing at being in love, their fictional relationship might blow their real life friendship out of the water.
Why did you write this book?
Perfect on Paper was so much fun to write! It developed as part of a multi-author continuity – the gist was to somehow work a manservant, kind of like a gigolo, into the book. In my book, Nick runs a company called ManServants, and while a lot of his employees are hired as escorts, many are also hired to walk women to their cars or check their homes after being away for a while. They’re a kind of first defense for their clients.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read across genres, but I’ve never met a contemporary romance I didn’t love.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Oh, so many…and usually its based on the book I just finished reading. One of my favorites from recent reads is Ford, from Nora Roberts’ Tribute.
What are you working on at the moment?
I always have a new project in the pipeline! I just turned in a women’s fiction with romantic elements to my agent, and I can’t wait to see it hit store shelves.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’m working on a few news things. I’ll have a new contemporary series coming out in about six months, and I’m working on something that’s a little different, with a suspense element, too.

Let’s meet Avarice Licciardi from Avarice and Charity, an Australian Historical Romance by Faye Hall. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Avarice and Charity by Faye Hall

Genre Australian Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Would you protect the one you love from relentless greed?
Avarice Licciardi worked for his father, Antonio – a greedy, loveless man who destroyed everyone in his way. When Avarice met Charity, a woman with fiery red hair and the touch of an angel, he discovered there was something he craved so much more than his father’s money. What he wanted was this woman.
When Antonio ordered his son to get the hidden papers in Charity’s estate, Avarice refused. That was until Antonio threatened to go get the papers himself. Knowing the brutality of his father, Avarice went to Charity’s estate, ready to protect her at all cost. When she invited him to stay with her, he hoped to find nights of endless passion. What he found was a hidden tunnel with incriminating mysteries far greater than hidden papers.
Charity Bohdan lived up to her name, giving her herbal medicinal treatments freely. What started off as patching up wounds soon took a very different direction when she was being called to treat young women who’d been brutally raped and left pregnant. She knew the risks involved with treating and re-homing these women, but until she could find the monster attacking them, she could see no other choice.
When Charity was called to treat a drunk’s wounded hand, she expected to find some elderly station hand. Who she met was Avarice. As she treated his wound, she couldn’t ignore just how handsome he was, or the feelings he stirred in her when their skin touched. The more time they spent together, talking of Irish legends and going on picnics, Charity could feel herself losing her heart to him.
Together Avarice and Charity are forced to uncover secrets from the past that sicken their souls as an evil, greedy man threatens to tear them apart in his search for the evidence hidden in the Bohdan estate.

If we could only hear your voice (but not see you) what characteristic would identify you?

I know how important it is to be able to live a comfortable life, but I have also seen the destruction and heartache it can cause.
What is your family like?
My father, Antonio, is a very cruel man who thinks his power gives him the right to treat people as possessions. My mother was a beautiful, kind hearted woman who embraced her Irish heritage.
What would you like people who hear your story to know?
Despite the way my father raised me, I have tried to make better of myself and right the wrongs I was once foolish enough to commit. I have also tried to keep my mother’s memory alive by educating myself on the legends of her ancestors.

Genre Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
When researcher Grace Talbot and her team discover a possible solution for weight loss they are targeted by a group dedicated to controlling a diet product industry worth billions.

this book has more than one genre?
Yes, the book has suspense, action, romance, and could also fall in the crime fiction genre
