It Starts With A Kiss by JL Peridot

Genre Retrofuturistic sci-fi office romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Celeste is a talented engineer who doesn’t realize her job’s going nowhere fast. She’s a little naïve. She’ll cut code and solder cables forever as long as Owen’s around. Owen, on the other hand, knows exactly how badly things suck–he just doesn’t care. Sure, his skills aren’t what they used to be, but they’re still better than what Halcyon Aries deserves.

Then it happens. The company’s toxic management team finally cross the line. As both techies race to upgrade the station and to free the team from their oppressive contracts, they come to learn that life–and love–can only ever be what you make it.

Why did you write this book?

Initially, I just wanted to write a feel-good office romance set in the same universe as my previous novellas, Chasing Sisyphus and “Question”. But as I wrote, I found I had a lot of material (aka. “feelings”) locked up inside me. The Eleanor parts, the management parts and, heck, Celeste’s entire personal journey as the story unfolds were all fed by the years I’d spent in a technical and corporate environment.

When life gets frustrating or confusing, reading fiction helps me feel less alone. A great, relatable book gives me perspective and suggests how I could deal with stuff. This book is for the talented, professional, undermined women out there. Like Celeste, they could achieve just about everything they want to with just a little more self belief.

I see you, my lovelies.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Science fiction, but to be honest, I’ll read just about anything with a good story or interesting writing style. One of my all-time favourite books, War Boy by Kief Hillsbery, isn’t even close to the bookstore shelves I gravitate toward, but the story and writing just blew me away.

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

Lucasinho Corta from Ian McDonald’s Luna series. I adore his style, adore the style the author uses in his scenes. He embodies sex, hubris, sincerity and possibility. How can you not fall in love with that?

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m experimenting with storytelling in other mediums. It’s too early to talk about yet, but once the real work begins, I expect to vent my frustrations quite liberally on twitter :o)

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The rest of The Basilica Conspiracy and a few shorter erotic and romantic pieces.

Read First Change, a fantasy by Helen Henderson @history2write #RLFblog #Fantasy #RomanceHelen Henderson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about First Change.

First Change: Legends From The Eyrie by Helen Henderson

Genre Romance Fantasy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

The dragshi are more than just a man or woman. Each are two beings–one a dragon, the other a human–sharing one body in space in time and able to change forms with the other at will. Their world and the adventures of the dragon shifters are recorded in the Dragshi Chronicles. Unlike the previous works in the series, which related the tales of the trader girl Anastasia and Lord Branin Llewlyn, First Change contains five stories of duty and honor, love and loss, happiness and despair from the history and myth of the world of dragshi.

Within each of the Dragshi Chronicles, the ceoltiers, the keepers of the past and teachers of the present, recount some legend. First Change features the full story behind the legends only given brief reference in the previous volumes. As with all such tales, some contain larger than life deeds. Others are the simple story of a man or woman doing what must be done, regardless of the cost. But a lesson to be learned. When you shift into dragon form, sometimes Fate controls the flight.

Hope by Seelie Kay

Genre Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

At only age twenty-two, she’s the best Probie the Agency has ever had–until her past catches up with her, leaving her devastated and broken. Without hope.

No one knows what they’re made of until they’re broken. At the tender age of twenty-two, Hope Ali has finally joined the organization of her dreams, the Agency, an elite group of attorneys who go undercover to right wrongs the law can’t. The requirements are stringent, the training exhausting.

After seeking asylum in the United States when she was sixteen, Hope and her father, Sheikh Harun Ali, settled in a quiet Wisconsin town, hiding from those who had placed a price on their heads. Still, she excelled, finishing her university and law school education by the time she was twenty-one.

Now, after breezing through the Agency training program, Hope appears to be indestructible—until she is assigned a simple task during the rescue of an author among the disappeared in the UAE. The task? To distract the woman’s captors until she can be spirited out of the country.

Unfortunately, a member of MISix has other plans. In an attempt to disrupt the Agency’s mission, she tips off one of Hope’s enemies, alerting them to her location. Hope manages to lead the author’s captors on a merry dance, freeing others to rescue her, until she is unexpectedly confronted with a violent angry mob intent on harm.

She is left bloody and broken. No one knows whether Hope’s body or her mind will heal. Suddenly Hope is no longer just her name. It is also the one thing she must embrace to find her new normal.
