Russian Pride by @HollyBargoBooks #RLFblog #Contemporary #Mafia #RomanceHolly Bargo, 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.

Russian Pride by Holly Bargo

Genre Contemporary Mafia Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Rescued from domestic abuse, Bratva princess Inessa recuperates from the latest beating in the home of Giovanni Maglione, the mafia captain of Cleveland. Learning that her husband double-crossed the Chinese triad, and they want their pound of flesh–and they’re happy to take it out of Inessa–her parents ask Giovanni to marry their newly widowed daughter. The Chinese triad will be looking for a Russian mobster’s wife, not the wife of an Italian mobster. Inessa agrees to this marriage of convenience which, of course, isn’t so convenient. The ruse fails, which forces Giovanni into a violent and bloody mob war, because he protects what’s his… and Inessa is most definitely his.

Holly Bargo Social Media

Holly Bargo never outgrew a love of fairy tales, legends, and myths. Or horses. However, one foot must remain firmly planted in the real world which is where Holly makes her living as a freelance writer and editor. She and her husband have two grown children and live on a southwest Ohio hobby farm with a menagerie indoor and outdoor animals.
When she’s not working on other people’s documents or reading, Holly finds time to transfer the voices in her head to paper … er … computer. If she doesn’t, there’s a definite possibility her mind will explode.
And for those who might wonder from where the pseudonym of Holly Bargo came, it’s quite simple really. Horses. Namely an elegant and temperamental Appaloosa mare who has long since crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is fondly remembered for guarding toddler children and crushing a brand new pager.
But that’s another story.

Mack the Wife by Debby Conrad

Mackenzie O’Brien believes the only way her overprotective brothers will stay out of her life and find loves of their own is if she is married and settled. When an old love returns to town, Mackenzie is anxious to see if she and Grady Sullivan can pick up where they left off.
Grady tries to fight his attraction to Mackenzie. He wants nothing to do with the spoiled little rich girl who broke his heart years ago or her ridiculous marriage scheme. He’s a cop, living on a cop’s salary and she is way out of his league. And besides, her brothers hate him.
But Mackenzie won’t take no for an answer—until Grady suspects one or more of her brothers may be guilty of murder. Then she has no choice but to reconsider her plans. Because when it comes to family, the O’Briens stick together, even if it means giving up on love.

Embroidered Fantasies, a Romance by by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #romanceNJ Walters, 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.

Embroidered Fantasies by NJ Walters

Genre Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

With her abusive ex-husband safely behind bars, Roxanne Sykes is trying to carve out a quiet life for herself. Just as she’s beginning to feel free to explore her new possibilities, word reaches her that her cruel ex has been released from prison. When he shows up at her door bent on destroying her, it’s only through the magic of a well-loved tapestry that Roxanne is whisked away to safety–and into the world of a warrior she’s known only from her fantasies.

Radnor Craddock has known only a life of violence and brutality at the hands of his older brothers. Now that they have fallen in battle, Radnor and his twin brother Sednar can finally put their house in order. Just as their efforts are bearing fruit, fate smiles upon them again by delivering a potential tapestry bride to their doorstep. Well aware of what they must do to win her hand and her heart, the brothers dedicate themselves to granting Roxanne every imaginable pleasure, driving her to sensual heights unlike any she has ever known.

With each new erotic encounter stirring a loving bond between the three, Roxanne is tempted to accept the promise of the tapestry and make a new life and new home with the brothers. But she has trusted before and been painfully wrong, and she’s frightened by the whisperings of the brothers’ violent past. Unsure of herself and threatened anew when her merciless ex finds his way to her once again, Roxanne must trust her heart as the brothers vow to protect her and destroy her ex–and to give her a life and love she had never dreamed possible…

Why did you write this book?

When I wrote the first book in this series–Christina’s Tapestry–I’d intended it to be a standalone title. But the world of Javara was so fascinating and the possibilities limitless, and I just kept on writing. The older Craddock brothers are villains in the earlier books. It made me stop and wonder about the younger brothers. This is their story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That is so tough. I have so many characters from fiction that I love that I can’t choose just one. So let’s just say that one of my favorites is Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. She is one kickass heroine and her storyline has been carried over more than forty books. She’s grown and evolved through the series. I grab each new book when it’s released.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on a new paranormal series for Entangled. I’m quite excited about it.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’m in the Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology due out April 30th. My next Blood of the Drakon book–Drakon’s Knight–is releasing June 24th. And the next Tapestries book will be out in about three months.

Winemaker Noah Bradstone wants nothing more than to cultivate his grapes and win awards for his wine. But when construction on the B&B next door threatens his vines, Noah goes on a rampage – and comes up hard against the sexiest starlet he’s ever seen. Exactly the sort of woman he’s vowed never to get involved with again.
Angelica and Noah might be able to resolve their differences over a glass of some very fine wine, but when her opportunity at breakout stardom comes calling, all bets are off.
