I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of RLF–and I’m usually welcoming guests in this space. Today, it’s my turn to share a book. Surrender Love is my latest in the Antonello Brothers: Immortal sci-fi series set in the Tarthian Empire. It’s due to release Feb 20, 2021.

Surrender Love by Kayelle Allen

More than love. Surrender.

He’s the most powerful man in the Empire, and he’s immortal. When his mortal lover walks away, the smart thing is to move on and forget. But how can he bear this loneliness, life after life?

Until he meets an adorable Kin male, a catlike humanoid with perky cat’s ears and eyes, an intense curiosity about the world, and the almost superpower ability to smell every subtle change of emotion. This might be the soulmate he’s hoped for. The one person to whom he can surrender his heart.

But to bring his beloved closer means revealing every damning secret, every twisted truth, and every hidden lie, or risk losing him forever…

Read the series: Wolf at the Door by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNR #ParanormalRomanceWhat starts out as a freelance article about werewolves turns deadly in NJ Walters’ paranormal romance, A Wolf at the Door. When real-life werewolf Jacque LaForge comes knocking, should Gwendolyn Jones run or let him in?

NJ, 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 series.

Wolf at the Door in the Salvation Pack Series

Genre PNR

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Gwendolyn Jones is working on an article about werewolves, not that she believes they exist. But there are people out there who do, like the nervous man who slips her a flash drive with information he claims will prove to the word shifters are out there. Gwen starts questioning just what to believe when two very real werewolves come knocking on her cabin door later that night.

Someone has a flash drive with pictures that could endanger his pack, and alpha Jacque LaForge will do whatever it takes to destroy it. But the something deep inside him ignites when he knocks on the door of that “someone”. He didn’t think he’d find a mate, or that when he did, she’d be human. But now that he has Gwen in his arms found Gwen, he knows he has a fight on his hands to protect her from his former vengeful pack who are out to hurt him by any means necessary.

Which book is this in the series?

Wolf at the Door is the first book in the Salvation Pack series.

How many books do you plan for the series?

There are nine books in this series. It’s complete, although I have always toyed with doing an “next generation” spinoff.

How many books are completed?

There are nine books in total.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

The original Salvation Pack consisted of five male werewolves—Jacque LaForge (alpha), Louis LaForge (Jacque’s brother), Armand LaForge (cousin of Jacque and Louis), Cole Blanchard, and Gator Rollins. These men broke away from their former pack to start their own. Any of them could be alphas of their own pack, but together they are unbeatable. It was only intended to be five books, but when I started writing their world expanded bringing in more characters, including the women they love.

What is the overall theme in this series?

This series is ultimately about love, loyalty, acceptance, and what it means to be a real family.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Book #8 Wolf in her Soul
Book #9 Wolf of Her Own

What did you like best about writing this series?

The characters. I fell in love with the Salvation Pack. I hated for the series to end. It was like leaving behind a group of old and trusted friends.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

I’ve written over 100 books over the past 16 years, so too many to lists. Some of my more popular paranormal series are: Forgotten Brotherhood, Hades’ Carnival, Blood of the Drakon, Legacy Series, Spells, Secrets & Seductions, and Dalakis Passion. I also have three sci-fi/futuristic series: Project Alpha trilogy, Marks Mercenaries, and Assassins of Gravas. Contemporary series: Jamesville, Summersville Secrets. The Tapestries series is straight up menage a trois/fantasy. And I have other single-title books, as well as stories in anthologies. I like to write in different genres, but I mostly write paranormal.

The Sheriff's Son by Barbara White Daille @BarbaraWDaille #RLFblog #contemporaryomance

Today’s featured book is The Sheriff’s Son, a contemporary western romance by Barbara White Daille.

The Sheriff’s Son

Genre: Contemporary romance
Book heat level: PG13
Why Is Tanner Jones Back In Town?
Seven-year-old Kevin has been a handful for single mom Sarah Lindstrom, and when the new sheriff walks through her door holding her son by the scruff of his neck for egging his car, she knows she’s lost control. But can she control herself–and keep the secret she’s kept for so many years?
Tanner Jones has no idea Kevin is his son–he lost the right to that information when he abandoned Sarah soon after graduation. Just because he’s back in town doesn’t mean he can waltz into her life–and Kevin’s–to pick up where they left off. But Sarah can’t deny the feelings she still harbors for Tanner, and can’t deny how her son is benefiting from his attentions.
When Tanner finds out the truth, what is he going to do?

Introducing Calista Barlow from Arresting Jeremiah, by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseLove and danger come from all sides, in Arresting Jeremiah, a new novel by Amber Daulton. Calista Barlow falls in love with a man who isn’t as squeaky-clean as he appears. Let’s meet Calista. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Arresting Jeremiah by Amber Daulton

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Injured Parole Officer Jeremiah “Jim” Borden never expected Calista Barlow, the sassy blonde waitress he’s craved for months, to ring his doorbell. She slips into his heart—and his bed—but he’s obsessed with a gangland investigation that threatens his career and maybe even his life.

Calista doesn’t trust easily, not with a daughter to protect and the stalker who keeps calling her. After her violent ex-boyfriend returns, she finds solace in Jim’s arms.

Jim may have to forego his need for answers to protect the ready-made family he adores, but how will he and Calista escape an unseen enemy that is always one step ahead of them?

Introducing Calista Barlow

Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 28

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Aspen, Colorado

Profession: Waitress at Demi’s Diner

Ethnicity: Caucasian

What do you look like?

Oh, Lord. I knew you’d ask that question. Well, I’m six-feet tall, so I rarely wear high heels. I’m not technically ashamed of being a tall woman, but it’s so annoying when some men scowl at me, like it’s my fault they’re short. Anyway, I have long blonde hair and blue eyes. My thighs and hips are a little chunky, but my bottom looks good when I walk—or so Jeremiah says. My breasts are on the big side, so I would love to get a reduction some day. Unfortunately, it costs way too much money. (I can’t believe I’m actually saying this. You’re just so easy to talk with, Kayelle.)

Who is the significant other in your life?

Jeremiah Borden. Everyone calls him Jim, but I always use his given name unless I’m mad at him. I lucked out when I met him. He’s six-feet-two of gorgeous rock-hard muscles, and he’s always trying to persuade me to wear heels.

I dropped out of community college when I was 18. I was pregnant, and my ex wanted nothing to do with me or with our child. Serves me right for falling under a pretty boy’s thumb. I should’ve known better than to get involved with him, but I digress… I went back to school a few years later for culinary and business courses, but I didn’t have time to stick with it. My daughter, Lacey, then a job, came first.

Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?

I love to cook and bake, and I’ve been dreaming about opening a bakery for as long as I can remember. Even though I’ve had no real formal education into cuisine, I grew up in the shadows of a wealthy household (my mother was a maid there) and the head chef took me under his wing. I’ve learned to create a variety of French dishes under Chef Caron’s tutelage.

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

I get by. I’m working a dead-end job at a greasy diner since I couldn’t find a chef position without a college diploma. Though I receive some money through child support, I’m trying to save it for Lacey’s college.

When there is a setback, what doubt or flaw surfaces?

I always tend to think I’m not good enough, not smart enough, and I even go so far to think my life would be easier if I was shorter with smaller breasts.

I grew up with a wonderful, loving mother, but I didn’t know my father and the first guy I fell in love with stomped my heart into the ground. The few guys I dated after him either used me for sex—hence the body issues—or they didn’t like my daughter. How could any woman’s confidence survive unscathed after repeated abuse like that?

I’m proud to say I’ve worked through much of my self-esteem issues, but that horrible niggling doubt is always there at the back of my mind, ready to pounce when I least expect it. But I know better than to flame the fire. I’m a smart, strong woman, and no one is going to make me change my mind.

When you are upset, what gives you away?

I rarely curse, so if bad words are flying from my mouth, you better step back. I’m about to or have already blown my top.

Burning Bridges by Anne Krist

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.
