In Perfectly Honest, book 1 of the Perfectly Series, one little white lie sweeps Dr. Mikaela Finn off her feet and triggers an avalanche of change. Sam O’Brien, a.k.a. Dr. Eye Candy, is caught up in the wild ride. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!

Linda, 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.

Perfectly Honest in the Perfectly Series

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

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

You never know where your words will take you…

When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s “fiancée” for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor. Sam O’Brien, aka “Dr. Eye Candy,” is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his “fiancée” helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his “fiancée” ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!

Which book is this in the series?

Perfectly Honest is the first book in the Perfectly Series. All of the books in the series are all stand-alone happily-ever-afters, but the characters from the previous books pop up in later stories and you get a glimpse of what’s happened in their lives as you read through the series.

How many books do you plan for the series?

There are 6 books in the series. Even though Perfectly Reasonable and Perfectly Planned are the second and third books respectively, they flash back to a couple of years before the events in the first book, Perfectly Honest. By Perfectly Unpredictable, things are all caught up! I wrote Perfectly Honest first and then realized I had to go back in time a bit to explain the events that happen in Margo’s life in the second book. It’s honestly not as confusing as it sounds.

How many books are completed?

All 6!

What characters are the main stars in your series?

You fall in love with a new couple with each story, but the main stars are Dr. Mikaela Finn (along with Sam O’Brien) and Dr. Margo MacMillan (and her beau, Trace Bennett). The women are best friends who waded through medical school together and now share the ups and downs of their love lives.

What is the overall theme in this series?

There is something – and someone – for everyone! The 6 books of the Perfectly Series are humorous contemporary romances set in a trio of small towns. The sassy characters in these sexy romantic comedies are doctors, painters, a translator, and a rock star – well, they’re all rock stars but only one plays guitar! Each couple has their own story, but they pop up in the other stories and stay in touch. You can escape to a small town and share in the love and laughter.

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

Perfectly Honest
Perfectly Reasonable
Perfectly Planned
Perfectly Unpredictable
Perfectly Christmas
Perfectly Together

Read the series: Perfectly Honest (Perfectly Series Book 1) by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #MedicalRomance

What did you like best about writing this series?

When I write a book, I’m caught up in the characters’ lives for the better part of a year. It’s always bittersweet to move onto the next project and leave them behind. In this series, it was fun to revisit them and catch up with the next steps in their lives – their weddings, starting families, their careers. Dr. Mikaela Finn, the heroine in the first book, is an obstetrician. That profession made her an easy character to carry through and slip into the other books. I really enjoyed the challenge of intertwining the lives of the characters – and it felt like I was leaving little gifts or special notes for loyal readers who had read the previous stories.

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

I’ve written 4 steamy hockey romances for the In the Game Hockey Romance series, 4 sweet romantic comedies in the Dr. Brogan Matchmaking Doctor series, and Time for the Doctor, a medical romance, which is part of a collection of books set in Copper Mills, Arizona.

Read a #SmallTownRomance #Mystery Temporarily Out of Luck by Vicki Batman @VickiBatman #CozyMystery #RLFblogTemporarily Out of Luck by Vicki Batman is the third volume in the Hattie Cooks Mystery series. Enjoy a small town romance mixed with mystery and Vicki's signature dollop of humor.

Great job. What man? And murder. Newly employed at Wedding Wonderland, Hattie Cooks is learning the industry from a woman she greatly admires. When her former brother-in-law is found dead in his luxury SUV, all fingers point to Hattie's sister who is planning her own I Dos.

Detective Allan Wellborn is caught between a rock and a hard place--Hattie's family and investigating the murder of a well-connected Sommerville resident, the same loser who was once married to Hattie's sister. Determining who's the bad guy--or gal--isn't going to be easy and sure to piss off someone.

Can Hattie beat the clock to find out who murdered Tracey's ex before she is charged with the crime and her wedding is ruined?

What's in your character's pockets, backpack, or purse?

Hattie carries in her handbags a little makeup pouch her mother needlepointed, her cellphone, keys, and TicTacs, wintergreen flavor.

Does your character carry money, and if so, in what form (cash, credit, etc.)?

Hattie is a single gal and out of work. She is also a pro-shopper--someone who shops for the best value. All kinds of currency work for her-- cash, checks, cards—everything because you never know when you will find a good deal or have to have it.

What does your character carry related to a job or calling?

For job interviews, Hattie takes a tote that contains paper copies of her resume, a bottle of water, and an e-reader.

What is one thing your character wouldn't be caught dead carrying?

Something dead—obviously.

Does your character ever carry things for other people? (like a mom with toys, etc.)

Hattie has been known to pack cheese crackers in case she gets hungry. She might share. Her mother would say that's a nice thing to do.

If your character could buy an item to carry things in and money was no object, what would it be?

If money was no object, Hattie (like someone she knows) would buy designer handbags, and because she is a pro-shopper, she will always try to buy one at the best value. She is particularly fond of Kate Spade and vintage handbags like Margaret Smith and Enid Collins.

Questions for the Character to Answer About the Author

What does your author always carry?

Handbags!!! Vicki likes needlepoint handbags and has made some of her own besides buying vintage ones on various websites. She also loves Kate Spade.

How organized is your author's backpack/purse?

Vicki is pretty organized. She changes bags frequently and everything moves easily from one bag to the next.

What does your author prefer to use when it comes to items like backpacks/purses?

Vicki loves handbags. Her feet are small, and shoes are hard to come by; however, handbags—lots of those. She has a vintage Boy Scout backpack that is very cool. And an LL Bean tote that goes to conventions and trips.

If your author could buy an item to carry things in and money was no object, what would it be?

Vicki is always looking for new handbags. Even if money was no object, she is a pro shopper like me, and she will be looking for a good value no matter what she bought. But sometimes, you gotta go with the price because it is what you want.

She might not lose a glass slipper, but her heart is in danger of being left behind. One thing for sure, by the time our Charlotte arrives at the ball, she’d sure like to know which man is her real Prince Charming.

Read Stetson’s Lady (The Diamond Ring Book 1) by Ronni Griffith @romanceronni #RLFblog #ContemporaryWesternRonni Griffith, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Stetson’s Lady.

Stetson’s Lady (The Diamond Ring Book 1) by Ronni Griffith

Genre Contemporary Western/Cowboy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

He’s a man who has it all–but the lady he truly loves.

Mesa Stone left Maple Ridge to get away from her best friend’s overbearing, headstrong brother, Stetson McKane. She’s been head-over-heels in love with the sexy-as-sin cowboy since she was a little girl. Now she’s back–and drinking her sorrows away at the McKane’s annual BBQ–when she finds herself at the mercy of Stetson’s archrival.

Stetson knew Mesa was back in town, but what he didn’t expect was to find her in the arms of his nemesis. He’s been rescuing his little sister’s best friend, Mesa, since she was a tomboy in pigtails. To his amazement, the little girl who drove him crazy is all grown up and Stetson finds he doesn’t have the will power to resist her any longer.

Neither can deny the heat rising between them, but between his ex who won’t take no for an answer, and Blaine’s schemes of revenge, it seems Stetson and Mesa don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of making it work.

But it’s true what people say about things being bigger in Texas–whether it’s a stubborn male ego, a heart full of love…or the red-hot attraction between two people who belong together.

QUICK

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

No. Right now I only write contemporary/western. Maybe as my writing career progresses I’ll venture out into more genres. Being from Texas, my three favorite types of men are, Oilmen, Cowboys, and Athletes. This being said, I’m a huge sports fan. I think it’d be kinda fun to venture out one day, and try my hand at something sports related. I guess time will only tell.

How do you come up with ideas?…

So, I have ideas pop in my head all the time. I’ve even woken up in the middle of the night with ideas. I can listen to music, watch a TV show, talk to people at the grocery store and walk away with an idea for my book. Some of them come from past and present situations I’ve been in. Some of my best ideas come to me when I’m in the shower (that’s always interesting to jump out of the shower to grab a pen and paper to jot the idea down before it’s gone forever). I’m a pretty observant person. Just watching and talking to people give me a lot of ideas. So the short answer, I get ideas everywhere I go and pretty much everyone I come in contact with. So, like I tell my family and friends, be careful what you say and do around me, because more than likely it’ll end up in a book of mine one of these days.

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

Writing, for me, gives me an outlet. It sounds crazy, but writing is kinda like playing my music. For the time I’m writing, I get to shut off the outside world and bury myself into the lives of my characters. I know they have their issues and things they have to go through before they get to their happily ever after, but they get there. I was an avid reader before stepping out and writing my own book. One thing I always appreciated about what authors do, is they gave me a few hours to escape everyday life. I’d like to think I give readers the same thing.

When did you write your first book?…

I spent five years on Stetson’s Lady before it was finally released. My book has been critiqued by other well known authors and close friends. It’s been edited several times and rewritten more than twice. The day my editor told me I should delete 20K words because it was way too long, I almost cried. I wrote “The End” in Maui, on November 5, 2016 and it was put out into the world on November 3, 2020. It’s a long road but one I’ll cherish forever. It’s amazing to me how fast book two is going when the first one took a long time.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather, for sure.

Black or red? Black

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton

Ocean or mountains? This is a hard one. It depends on which beach I’m at. If it’s tropical, for sure the ocean. If not, take me to the mountains.

City life or country life? I’m a born and raised country girl.

Party life or evening at home? Now-a-days, evening at home.

Dogs or cats? Dogs all the way.
