Collette Cameron's Earl of Wainthorpe @Collette_Author #RLFblog #Historical #RomanceCollette Cameron, 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.

The Earl of Wainthorpe by Collette Cameron

Genre: Historical Regency
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Could you ever love the unrepentant rake who won you in a wager?
He didn’t gamble on losing his heart when he won her at the gaming tables.
Pierce, the Earl of Wainthorpe has finally thwarted his worst enemy. Except he can’t revel in his victory after winning his foe’s ward in a winner-takes-all wager. If Pierce refuses to assume Bianca Salisbury’s guardianship, the fiery-haired beauty with a matching temper may very well find herself sold to the highest bidder.
The shameful secret she guards makes it impossible to love a rogue.
Desperate to escape her blackguard cousin, Bianca Salisbury ventures to London to find a husband or employment. Instead, she’s bartered to a notorious rakehell. She either risks being compromised and accepts The Earl of Wainthorpe’s protection, or flees him and her guardian. But without money and a place to go, she fears she’ll face the same tragic fate as her mother.
Caution: This romance features a sexy, irredeemable scoundrel determined to thumb his nose at the haut ton, a saucy country miss unafraid to speak her mind but terrified of even a hint of scandal, a unlikely aristocratic matchmaker, a trio of busybody sisters you’ll adore, and a very pregnant calico that is convinced humans are only around for her convenience.
For a page-turning Historical Romance novel brimming with Regency England’s rakish dukes and rapscallion lords, buy this passionate adventure sprinkled with suspense and humor. You won’t be able to put it down.

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons. Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them. Kryssie’s pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that ends on a cliffhanger. Her books are all stand alone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.

Storm Crazy (Destiny Paramortals #1) by Livia Quinn

Welcome to Destiny, home to the Paramortals since…well, forever…where human neighbors and their new sheriff live alongside shifters, dragons, vampires and a family of djinn.
Just don’t tell the humans.
To former Navy pilot-turned-sheriff Jack Lang, the town of Destiny seemed the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But his investigation into a perplexing death shatters the alleged calm and threatens the tranquil home life he hoped to provide for his daughter. Especially, when he catches his mail lady in the act of stealing an antique vase after stepping over said body. Soon, Jack discovers Tempest Pomeroy is an outright trouble magnet who never fails to test the limits of his patience or the law.
For most of her life, Tempe’s denied her heritage, but as the sheriff’s investigation veers off into the bizarre and intrudes into the existence of the Paramortals, danger heads toward them like an F5 tornado… Look out, Tempest’s about to go Storm Crazy.
A human sheriff, a storm witch, and the quirky, supernatural town of Destiny. What could go wrong?

Detour Ahead by Adriana Kraft

Threatened race horses, city slicker attorney, sexy California wrangler—what can possibly go wrong?
Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R and R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.
Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.
The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her – like he does his horses – before she flees in panic?
Traci Steele may be the most damaged of the heroines in our four-book horse racing suspense series, Riders Up. If she was a real person, she might stand up and say “Me, too” – except she’s never told anyone, not even her best friend, Cassie.
To celebrate tomorrow’s 144th running of the Kentucky Derby, Detour Ahead will be free on Amazon today through Monday, May 7, 2018.

Sayara St Clair, 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.

Kiss Me, Bite Me by Sayara St Clair

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
I’d learned early on in life not to show weakness. Like messy emotions. Shedding tears in front of my family had a similar outcome to busting out of a shark cage wearing blood cologne.
The world hasn’t treated Kayana Castello Branco particularly kindly. So it’s no surprise to her when she literally bumps into her soul mate, only to find he’s already taken. He’s gorgeous, strong, smart, kind—every woman’s ideal guy. Of course he’s unavailable for soul-matey business.
When fate shows pity, putting Greg Morgan in her path a second time, the resulting collision is colossal. Their connection is epic, the stuff of romantic legends, fairy tales, sonnets. They’re like Romeo and Juliet (only, the R-rated version).
But something has happened to Greg. Now, every time he gets near Ana, he gets long and hard…and pointy in the fang area. He doesn’t know whether he wants to kiss her, lick her, do-that-thing-that-rhymes-with-duck her. Or bite and deprive her of every last molecule of haemoglobin.
Loving a newbie vampire with control issues really and truly sucks.
Why did you write this book?
Although this is the fourth book I’ve published, it’s actually the first one I ever wrote. I’ve been an avid paranormal romance reader for a long time and I may have a slight vampire obsession. I mean, it’s so slight it’s barely worth mentioning. *Stares* *Waits* *Squirms* Okay, okay, I’ll admit it—I am TOTALLY obsessed with vamps! So it was inevitable that my first book would be a vampire paranormal romance.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. All sorts of romance, eg erotic, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense. I am an unashamed incurable romantic.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
There are so many characters I’ve admired over the years, that it’s hard to narrow it down to just one. My character of the moment, though, is Daniel Beckett, from a series of books by Dominic Piper. Beckett is worlds apart from the usual romantic hero I fall head over heels for. However, he is mysterious and intriguing. And it is absolutely imperative that I find out more about him.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on the second book in the Blood Kissed Series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
The book mentioned above will released next. Kayana, Greg and their friends will be involved in some extremely complicated and hair-raising situations. Expect much mayhem in the future from me.

Sayara St Clair Social Media

If someone told a young Sayara St Clair that one day she would be an erotic/paranormal-romance-writing Aussie expat living in Thailand, she would have snort-laughed and yelled, “You. Be. Crazy!”
If someone told her the same thing now, she would not yell, only nod solemnly. Because that actually happened.
Sayara has a science degree, with majors in both microbiology and biochemistry. Working in the fields of serology and tissue banking, she got to do lots of cool and sometimes slightly weird stuff. She was employed as the manager/buyer for furniture retail stores, where she had a chance to unleash her inner interior decorator. (Interior design is one of her great passions.) And for a time, she taught English to students in Asia. (Hanging about in a roomful of extremely loud, pint-sized humans is not one of her great passions.) She has written: ads for TV, print and radio; real estate brochures; website copy; and a screenplay. Now she’s writing fiction and has discovered it’s her favorite thing to do. She’s also learned that writing sultry romances is so much more fun than writing dry old scientific journal articles. No one has sex in scientific journal articles. Not the ones she wrote anyway.
When not writing, she may be most commonly found in a horizontal position reading, in the kitchen baking, in the garden planting, or somewhere else singing at the top of her lungs. She loves music and is prone to spontaneous bouts of dancing.
With regards to vampires and chocolate: she bites one on a daily basis and has had a lifelong obsession with the other. And she’s not telling which one’s which.

Strength of Love By D Anne Paris @danneparis #RLFblog #paranormalromanceI have learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will not forget how you made them feel.

~Maya Angelou
I am a huge proponent of giving experiences as gifts instead of material items. Material things take up space, become clutter, and ultimately get thrown into a landfill. Special moments don’t do any of that. When we have people we love and cherish, treating them right becomes very important to us. We look for ways to appreciate them and give them special things. We celebrate every event and we do not need an occasion to surprise them.

Creating A Special Moment

Giving thoughtful gifts to someone dear to you is great and appreciative but there are times when material things cannot express effectively the message you want to convey to them. These are times when moments and experiences are ultimately the greatest gift you can give.
Unforgettable experiences over gifts .
Human beings are easily affected by events and that is why a person will easily remember an event because they remember the emotions they felt. Even when you give gifts to people, their memory is usually the feeling the gift evoked in them when they received it. They might remember the gift whenever they use it or see it but nostalgic moments are tied mostly to feelings. This is where giving an unforgettable experience comes in. They will forever remember the various feelings attached to that day.
Creating a special experience: A picnic for two.
So you decided to create a special memorable picnic for your loved one. The weather outlook looks great for a picnic in the park and you can picture it clearly. You have one tiny problem: How do you make this picnic different from every other picnic you have had?
You have the food covered and the drinks are good to go (bubbly or wine) , your picnic basket is complete with the blanket but it still doesn’t strike you as special. It feels like just about every other picnic.
Here are a list of ways to flip the script on your picnic and add spice to it, making it a special and unforgettable one.
Hire musicians to serenade your loved one at the picnic! Check your local collages to see if there are any college students who would play at your picnic. Get the musicians to play some favourite pieces of your loved one to heighten the experience and you can dance to the songs they play.
Get some battery powered tea lights, put them in a mason jar, tie them on the branch of a tree and hang them above your picnic area.
Your loved one afraid of bugs crawling on them? Get an inflatable kiddie pool and have the picnic inside of it. One you are done eating bring in some pillows and blankets so you can gaze at the stars in the evening.
If you live in the city, find a rooftop you can have the picnic on. The views will be spectacular especially at sunset.
Grab a ride on a horse drawn carriage and have it drop you off at the picnic location.
Picnic on a boat. Rent a small boat or even a canoe will do! Paddle to a quiet spot and have your picnic surrounded by water.
Beach bonfire picnic. If you are lucky enough to live close to a beach, check to see if you can have a bonfire on the beach. You can have a wonderful picnic on the beach with a warm bonfire to keep both of you warm.
Picnic in a pick-up. If either of you own a pick-up, have your picnic in the back. Choose a memorable location where you can park the pick-up, have your picnic and gaze at the stars when evening comes around.
There you have it. A fine twist to an otherwise ordinary picnic at the park.
Your partner will not only be touched by the thoughtfulness of your action but also by the time and effort you have put into giving them a special moment.
With this you have not only created a memorable experience but you have given them a special gift of your time, thought and efforts. They will always remember the way that day made them feel: Special.
