Half-Broke Heart by Tarina Deaton @tarinadeaton #RLFblog #MilitaryRomance #ContemporaryRomanceTarina Deaton, 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.

Half-Broke Heart by Tarina Deaton

Genre: Military/Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Denise Reynolds is used to putting up a good front to show the world a strong, capable woman, but keeps a lot of things buried deep.
Chris Nolton is everything she learned the hard way to avoid — a sexy alpha-male who could charm her out of her pants and work his way into her heart. If history has taught her anything, it’s a deadly combination, but he manages to dig up emotions and longing she’s tried to bury for years.
He says all the right things and pushes her boundaries in all the right ways. Letting her guard down is difficult, especially since believing all the right things in the past led to unimaginable consequences.
Being content with her life may no longer be an option, but risking her heart may bring her to her knees.


Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Not right now. I love to read historical and paranormal romance, but I know I would nit-pick over all the tiny details if I tried to write in another genre. Plus, I’m still getting my feet under me as an author and I want to be strong in the genre I’m familiar with before I try to branch out into my own unchartered-territory.
How do you come up with ideas?…
It varies by the story. Sometimes I’ll hear a song or read an article that makes me wonder what led to that point. Then I start imagining the people and the scenes and I build from there. Sometimes, a full scene will come to me and it’s in the middle of the book and I have to work forward and back from that point. I don’t always immediately know where the story began or where it will end, but that’s one of the things I love about writing.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Emotion. I love the stories that make me laugh and cry and pull at my heart-strings. That level of emotion and connection is always my goal when I’m writing.
When did you write your first book?…
In Mrs. Pamay’s fifth grade class we made cloth frogs, stuffed them with beans and we all had to write a story to go along with our frog. My frog’s name was Frogetta. She was a police officer and she stopped a bank robbery. That’s probably not what you were expecting. LOL. I published my first novel late 2016. Since then I’ve published three full-length novels and a novella in the same series as well as a novella in an anthology. There’s also a bonus novella only available to my newsletter subscribers.

Know the Hero from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen #RLFblog #SciFi #Romance Kayelle Allen, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about the book.

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen

Genre Science fiction romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure is a fast-paced scifi romance with an adorable, fun-loving hero who’s half-human and half-cat and a by-the-book army captain heroine. Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device. Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss. He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Know the Hero from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

He likes watching his favorite ruckball team, the Kelthian Killers. Ruckball is a mix of soccer, wrestling, and hockey. Points can be taken away for the wrong type of hold when wrestling for a ball, and parts of a professional field have lower gravity. It’s fun to watch.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Senth likes chocolate. He’d probably go for dark chocolate muffins or cookies with milk, but he also loves chocolate ice cream.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Casual, but he is quite comfortable in dressy clothes and can easily tie the most difficult formal tie in the empire, a Tyran knot.

Does he know how to fix things?

He’s good with his hands and he has experience taking things apart. As a young child, he exasperated his father by taking apart items and being unable to remember how to put them back together. His father often didn’t know either.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

He stole money from a bigoted teenage bully and used it to buy chocolates and roses for a woman he wanted to impress. Let’s just say that stealing money to buy her a gift did not go over well at all.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He’s marvelous with kids and tutors younger students in the Thieves’ Guild. He is the mentor for a talented youngster whose skills are off the charts.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Adorably muddle-headed and bleary-eyed, but soon snaps out of it and is good to go.

Can he use chopsticks?

Yes, he can. They are a Tyran implement, and he’s not only familiar with their culture, he also speaks their language.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

He’s more of a hot chocolate kind of guy, but he’ll pretend-sip it if everyone else is having some. He’ll nurse that one cup all evening without ever drinking more than a spoonful.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He uses a device referred to as a mobile, which is like our smartphones on steroids. He has every app the Thieves’ Guild offers, plus ways to order food, hail a ride, or look up information. But all of his data is private and blocked because he uses the device in his work as a thief.

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

He doesn’t try to hide that he’s not fully human and when someone treats him with disrespect, he’ll start a fight so he can get close enough to pick their pocket.

Hide real self or be out in the open?

He is a HalfKin (half human and half feline humanoid) and he’s proud of it.

Let a worker handle it or do it himself?

He’d rather do it himself but has learned that doing it yourself can create unwanted attention. If it’s vital, he’ll do it himself.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Always clean-shaven.

Earrings/piercings or unadorned skin?


Recycle or toss?

He reuses everything and only tosses what is completely useless.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Destiny of a Gargoyle by Chris Redding @chrisredding #RLFblog #NewRelease #paranormalromanceChris Redding, 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.

Destiny of a Gargoyle by Chris Redding

Paranormal Romance Heat Level: PG
He was born in a time when magic ruled the Earth.
Gargoyles protected fairies from goblins. His family was a group of elite gargoyles who were assigned to protect a specific fairy. His father’s dereliction of that duty cursed his sons to become stone and wait.
Now reawakened in the twenty first century where no one believes in magic how is he going to convince his fairy that she is one and that she is in danger from a goblin?
He must do that without falling in love with her.
Why did you write this book?
I’ve had a fascination with gargoyles since I visited Notre Dame in Paris a few years ago. When I had the time to write it I’d just visited Ireland so I chose to have them be Irish gargoyles.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Paranormal Romance
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jim Beckett from Lisa Gardner’s The Perfect Husband. Just the mention of his name gives me chills because he was so bad.
What are you working on at the moment?
The third in the series, Calling of a Gargoyle. It’s about the last brother.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Fate of a Gargoyle and Calling of a Gargoyle should be out in the next few months along with probably the first in a series of sweet romances set on an island in the Carribean called Matchmaker Island.
