Burning Bridges by Anne Krist

Genre Contemporary romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Not your typical “secret baby” book, this Southern romance is filled with emotion between a mature heroine and the man she used to love.

Letters delivered decades late send shock waves through Sara Richards’s world. Nothing is the same, especially her memories of Paul, a man to whom she’d given her heart years before. Now, sharing her secrets and mending her mistakes of the past means putting her life back together while crossing burning bridges. It will be the hardest thing Sara’s ever done.

Anne Krist Social Media

A few years ago, Dee S. Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex. That’s how Dee spends her days. Her nights? Well, she’s lucky that her dream man, childhood sweetheart, and long-time hubby are all the same guy, and nights are their secret.

After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories. All three of her personas are found on the Nomad Authors website. Also, once a month, look for Dee’s Charity Sunday blog posts, where your comment can support a selected charity.

Discover fast fun facts about Sierra Brave author of Baby Makes Four @bravesierra #RLFblog #RomanceA poly trio is expecting their first baby in Sierra Brave’s MMF ménage romance, Baby Makes Four, but the new dynamic has one of the men feeling left out and insecure. Will two fathers prove one too many or can three parents multiply the love?

Sierra, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Baby Makes Four.

Baby Makes Four by Sierra Brave

Genre Contemporary Ménage Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): No one under 18 admitted!

Five years have passed since Trisha, Ken, and Tommy began their romantic love triangle. They’re no longer horny college kids, but growing up brings challenges for the Marks-Davidson clan. As Trisha struggles with carrying Ken’s baby in San Antonio’s dry, scorching weather, Tommy begins to question his place in the trio, especially when Ken, who previously agreed to deepen the intimacy between the two, seems reluctant to seal the deal.

Emotionally, Ken’s all for connecting on a physical level with his best friend and co-husband. He’s just not sure about the logistics. What will it take for them to forget their egos and insecurities and surrender to the desires already boiling over?

Follow their journey as they answer the question: Can three people truly love each other equally?

Although reading books one and two in the retro-contemporary Triple Passion Play series would add to your enjoyment, book three can be read as a standalone HEA romance.

Baby Makes Four is packed with pulse-pounding, hot, steamy, and explicit love scenes, including relations between two males, domestic discipline and spanking play, and adult toy play. If you are offended by alternative lifestyles, LGBT relationships, or descriptive, put-you-in-the-moment sexual language, you might want to look for a different book.

QUICK

What’s your favorite book?…

I’m not someone who is able to pick only one of anything, but I’ve always been fascinated by Alice in Wonderland in print, movies, and any other way, shape or form. The idea of falling into a magical land where caterpillars smoke mind-altering substances and being mad is the norm sounds like a blast.

What’s a genre you want to write?…

I’m currently writing a couple of fractured fairytales. One is based on the before mentioned Alice in Wonderland while the other is a new take on Red Riding Hood.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Stop waiting for the perfect time to write. You can’t edit an empty page.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

My first book was a contemporary office romance published by EC for Books as Do Geek Girl’s Dream of Electric Sweeties. I thought the title was clever, but no one really got that the title was a play on the Science Fiction book, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep which the movie Blade Runner is based on. I republished the story as Geek Girl’s Romance. It’s available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NBVP5BM

Easy

Coffee or tea? I’m a southern girl so iced coffee in the morning and sweet tea the rest of the day!

Sit down dinner or drive through? Unfortunately, drive through most of the time lately, but I love a sit down dinner when I have time.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? Life’s too short – let it sit.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? Use the dishes

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? Avoid!

The Hidden by Augustina Van Hoven

Genre Paranormal Romance

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

The monsters are real…

For most of her life, Lily Montgomery had thought the creatures that inhabited her dreams lived on only in the pages of the horror novels she wrote. Until she was kidnapped by a vampire and forced to go on the run from werewolves and other shapeshifters. And from her emotions. For, against all reason, her heart was also at risk of being captured by the vampire.

Valerian DuCharme had been turned into a vampire against his will. But in the turning, he did not lose his charisma or his caring. Now the enforcer for one of the princely houses of the Community, he tried to ensure the safety of anyone who came within range. And of many who didn’t. But it was all reflex, until he met Lily. And emotions he hadn’t felt for hundreds of years surfaced.

Get to Know Marty Dashwood from Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint @introvertedwife #RLFblog #ContemporaryromanceLove is a lot closer and more complicated than Marty ever dreamed in Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint. In this gender-swapped modern take on Sense and Sensibility, will Marty realize he’s had his one true love standing by his side?

Ellen, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about Rash and Rationality.

Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romance Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marty Dashwood is a true romantic. Hearts, chocolates, kisses on the hand—the whole nine yards. His killjoy brother Eldon doesn’t believe in love at first sight, but one day Marty will have the perfect meet-cute, she’ll fall helplessly in love with him and they’ll live happily ever after.

Brandy’s worked with Marty for almost two years. He’s the best friend she could ever have hoped for after the accident that took her husband. So she should be happy that Marty finally found what he’d always wanted, right?

So why does it feel like every time she sees Marty with the ‘Social-Media Angel’ he rescued from a mugger, a piece breaks off her heart? How can she explain any of this to him before she loses her best friend forever?

Rash and Rationality is a modern gender-swapped friends-to-lovers Sense and Sensibility, set in a cozy bookshop.

Know the Hero from Rash and Rationality

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

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

Marty will scroll through unending pictures of cute animals and send the best ones to his friend Brandy. He really loves coatimundi.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Flaming Hot Cheetos. He washes like a surgeon before surgery to keep the red tint off his fingers.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Comfortable but Marty knows how to clean up. He’s the type to break out his nice pants, shoes, and a button-up shirt for a date. Though he spends a lot of time in his green polo for the bookstore he works at.

Does he know how to fix things?

It no doubt surprises most to learn that Marty can follow directions. He attached a bike rack to his car all on his own so he could give lifts to his friend Brandy. It didn’t fall off once.

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

In college, Marty would take it upon himself to deliver little notes off encouragement to various girls. Sometimes he’d even drop off a rose if she was struggling. One boyfriend took that really badly and rearranged his nose for him. Marty stopped being the Don Juan of the dorms after that.

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

Total clown. One of the favorite parts of his job in a bookstore is being able to get a kid the perfect book, usually one their parents think is too silly or scary. In the book, Marty waves around a bunch of sparklers to the delight of his second nieces and nephews.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Barely cognizant of his existence. He has a long standing daily appointment with the coffee shop where he gets the biggest, sweetest caffeinated drink. He also always gets an extra donut to bring to Brandy. Sleeping in isn’t an option due to his straight-nosed brother Eldon.

Can he use chopsticks?

He thinks he can.

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

Take coffee, add milk and sugar. Keep adding sugar. A bit more. Top off with honey and cream.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Sheep Wars, Duolingo, Spotify, Instagram — has only three followers.

Android or iPhone?

Android, and four or five years old. Working in an independent bookstore doesn’t leave him flush with cash.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven. Best Marty can grow is a patchy mustache.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

His mamá would kill him if he ever put a needle to his skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Marty’s got his own car but he’s not above taking a bus or two.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle, though usually into a silly front display for the bookstore.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Read Runaway Love Story (Book Nirvana Series) by Sadira Stone @SadiraStone #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomanceSadira Stone: Contemporary romance with heart and heat. The Book Nirvana Series: steamy contemporary romance set in an indie bookshop in Eugene, Oregon–because bookshops are sexy!

Sadira, 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.

Runaway Love Story by Sadira Stone

Genre: Contemporary Romance Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

She hates average…he’s as average as they come.

High school history teacher Doug Garvey is trying to enjoy his last few weeks of summer vacation, but receiving his final divorce decree hits him harder than expected. After a brief fling fizzles, he fears love just isn’t in the cards for him. If only he could find someone who’s real, someone interested in something beyond herself…maybe a new running partner who can keep up with his more carnal appetite. When sexy, straight-talking Laurel runs across his path, he dares to hope again.

He’s done with social-climbing posers…she’s ambitious and has big dreams.

Fired from an art gallery, Laurel Jepsen shelves her pursuit of an art career in San Francisco to help her beloved great aunt Maxie move into assisted living. While out on a morning run, she’s harassed by a group of teens until a tall, broad-shouldered hottie steps in, pretending to be her boyfriend with a kiss that makes her wish it were true. But she’s only passing through, not looking for a relationship.

Their fierce chemistry burns up the sheets–and the couch, the shower, the forest–but falling in love would ruin everything. Laurel can’t stay in Eugene, and he can’t leave. Doug’s only hope is to convince her the glittery life she’s after could blind her to the opportunities already in her path.
