Sleigh Bells Ring by Jessica James

Best friends growing up go their separate ways, only to end up on the same ranch at Christmas. A first love, second chance, cowboy Christmas romance novella set on a ranch in Montana.

Returning to her family’s Montana ranch after a ten-year absence, Jordyn Dunaway pitches in to help her mother create the special holiday magic for which the exclusive ranch is renowned. But when she discovers that her best friend growing up—the man she has never forgotten—is employed as a ranch hand, the holiday season turns into something she never imagined.

Chad Devlin was falling into a deep abyss after being medically discharged from the military. When his old employer invited him back as a ranch hand, he found himself recovering both physically and mentally…that is until he was blindsided by the return of the ranch owner’s daughter.

The rocky relationship of the former best friends takes a back seat as the future of the family-owned ranch is threatened. If Jordyn and Chad don’t put their painful pasts behind them, they might lose the ranch they both call home. Can misunderstandings, mistrust, and lost years be forgotten when the magic of Christmas is in the air?

Find out with the help of beautiful mountain vistas, warm Western hospitality, and the magical meaning of a special sleigh bell that ties both Jordyn and Chad to the past—and the future.

An interview of a lifetime turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse in Lyncee Shillard’s The Prank. Emilee travels to Alaska only to learn she’s been tricked, and the punch line could be her life. In this romance suspense, Emilee and Jeremy fight for their lives and their feelings.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Lyncee Shillard. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

The Prank by Lyncee Shillard

Genre Adventure Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When Emilee Sawyer learns the reclusive billionaire Ted McGraft is going to an Alaska animal reserve, she sees it as her break. An interview of a lifetime. When she arrives, she learns it was a prank set up by her cousin. Only it isn’t funny, it’s deadly when Emilee becomes the target of a serial killer.

Jeremy Hanks had a bad feeling about Emilee Sawyer but the reserve could use some positive exposure after all the mudslinging of a local developer. The moment she arrives, he knows the smart thing would be to send her away. Instead, he lets the sexy reporter stay. A mistake that may cost them both their lives.

Read The Boy on the Bridge by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss #RLFblog #PNRA teenage boy with the power of prophecy changes the life of a loving young couple in Effrosyni Moschoudi’s new paranormal romance novella, The Boy on the Bridge. Set in a Greek mountain village, this suspenseful story will intrigue you in every page until the identity of the teenage boy is fully revealed…

Effrosyni, 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 Boy on the Bridge.

The Boy on the Bridge by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre paranormal romance novella

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (sweet romance)

A young man determined to protect his girl… A teenage boy offering prophecies… and a series of unexplained events.

Lefteris and his darling girl, Evgenia, live a quiet and happy life together in a mountain village in Zagori, Greece. One day, as Lefteris crosses an old stone bridge, he meets a teenage boy who warns him that Evgenia is in danger and gives him instructions to follow.

Lefteris doubts him, but does as he is told, just in case. The warning turns into reality and the girl is saved, so the next time the boy warns of danger, Lefteris is more willing to listen…

What follows is a series of astounding events as the boy’s prophecies of mortal danger continue, and Lefteris does his best to protect his girl. Now, he considers reverting to his old ways of solving all differences with his fists. Will he allow himself to resort to violence? How does the mysterious boy on the bridge fit in all this? And why does he refuse to meet Evgenia?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

My novels are paranormal or fantasy romances. Most are sweet, one of them is clean and wholesome, and there’s also a Christian fantasy among them.

How do you come up with ideas?

My beloved Greek island of Corfu inspires me more than anything else. I was once inspired to write The Raven Witch of Corfu as I swam in the sea there gazing at a mountain – the place where, in the story, the witch has her secret dwelling. Other of my published stories have come to me out of the blue, either while I relaxed on the beach, or in bed in a half-awake state. I never really force myself to come with an idea. I find the best ones come to me unprompted. I get ideas all the time, but I don’t write them down or anything. Experience has shown that the ones worth exploring will persist in my head anyway.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

Editing. No question about it. For me, a perfectly polished MS is a must. As a reader, I get jolted and put off if I am reading a book that’s full of typos or syntax errors. Or even worse – plot holes… Once these things become repetitive, the joy of reading goes out the window. At that point, I don’t care how good the story is, I’ll stop reading. This is why I am committed to offering my readers high-quality reads and nothing less.

When did you write your first book?

I started writing my first novel, The Necklace of Goddess Athena, when I was a student in Athens University in my early twenties. It was a slow process, until I got my first job upon graduation and then I completely set it aside. Twenty years of work in the corporate world later, I found myself unemployed with loads of free time on my hands. I still thank my lucky stars for the Greek financial crisis back in 2010 as that’s when I was led to discover the joys of creating new worlds out of thin air. I finished the book within one year and kept on writing!

FUN

Leather or lace? Lace. Leather is uncomfortable. And I am too old for uncomfortable.

Black or red? Black.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Any type of cotton. Flannel is even better.

Ocean or mountains? Ocean.

City life or country life? Country life forever!

Party life or evening at home? Guess what? You’re talking to the Queen of Cocooning!

Dogs or cats? I love and have had both, but only have two cats at the moment.

Discover fast fun facts about Caro Carson author of For This Christmas Only @thecarocarson #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomance #ChristmasRomanceA chance meeting brings a reclusive business icon and his biggest fan together in Caro Carson’s new holiday romance, For This Christmas Only.

Caro Carson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about For This Christmas Only.

For This Christmas Only by Caro Carson

Genre Contemporary Christmas romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

QUICK

What’s your favorite book?…

This is the most impossible question to answer. Perhaps Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, because that book launched the romance genre as we know it today. I can’t imagine life without reading romances that end happily-ever-after.

What’s a genre you want to write?…

It would be fun to get back to time travel romance, someday. I published two pirate-themed romances a few years ago, and I’d love to return to that world.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Don’t be afraid to put all your best stuff into one book, because new “best stuff” will appear when you start to write the next book. When it comes to creativity, the well doesn’t run dry, so don’t ration the water.

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

My first book was Doctor, Soldier, Daddy, a marriage-of-convenience story that launched a 9-book series. The paperbacks can be found at used book stores, but the ebook can be purchased in all formats, everywhere ebooks are sold. Thanks for asking! I’d like to re-read that one over the holidays. Yummy hero, if I don’t say so myself.

Easy

Discover fast fun facts about Caro Carson author of For This Christmas Only @thecarocarson #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomance #ChristmasRomanceCoffee or tea? Coffee. I know tea has caffeine, but I swear it doesn’t wake me up like coffee does.

Sit down dinner or drive through? Definitely sit down dinner, preferably somewhere fancy-schmanzy and preferably while having a good hair day and wearing a pretty dress. Candlelight required.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? I fold it straight out of the dryer, but don’t ask how long it sits on the dryer before I finally put it in my closet! Let’s just say the dryer makes an excellent dresser-bureau.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? I have children. I do not empty the dishwasher if I can possible help it. They need chores, right? I’m not lazy. I’m being a good parent. *wink, wink*

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? I fall asleep on road trips like a baby in a car seat. That was something of a survival skill when I was in the army—you had to catch a nap when you could, which was usually in the back of a truck or in a HUMM-V. I think my brain still assumes it’s vital to take a nap whenever I’m in a vehicle!

Talk or text? Text. It’s funny how it seems rude to call somebody now when a text will do.

Emoji or smilie? Emojis have gotten really fun.
