The Best Man Problem by Mariah Ankenman

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Lilly Walsh is used to keeping things buttoned-up and aboveboard. After all, the last time she hooked up with someone in a wedding party, it nearly cost her her wedding planning business. Thankfully, those rules don’t apply when she meets a handsome stranger in a hotel bar. One bad pirate joke leads to the best night of her life, but come morning, she’s got a wedding to plan.

Lincoln Reid never imagined he’d ever again see the woman who rocked his world last night and then ran out on him. But there she is, planning his best friend’s wedding with the same passion and drive that brought him to his knees. She’s adamant that wedding planner and best man can never mix, but that just means he’s got four weeks to make her see him as more than just a one-night guy. Because he’s itching for more than one night…or five, or ten…

Meet LB Joyce @bibbolinda author of A January to Remember #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomanceLB Joyce, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A January to Remember.

A January to Remember by LB Joyce

Twelve Months, Twelve Love Stories

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

It’s been said third time’s a charm and Hannah Michaels was only hours away from making this happen. After a misunderstanding, an unexpected departure and too much time lost before and after, she was more than ready. The first real date Sean had promised was about to happen.

But then she did something so incredibly stupid. While out for a run, she stepped out in front of a speeding motorcycle. Sailing head-first into a parked car, she was suddenly left with no recollection of the last two years of her life.

Unfortunately, Sean fell into this void.

Even though Sean Young had been next in line to take over his family’s cattle ranch in Australia, baseball had always been his first love. His goal to play professionally was realized when an offer by Cleveland had him leaving the ranch and his family behind to fulfill this dream.

Never did he expect to take one look at Hannah and have her steal his heart. Nor, after returning from an unexpected trip home due to a family emergency, did he think he’d have to start all over again, proving the love they’d shared before her memory loss was still the real thing.

Will this third time become that promised charm? Will Sean’s persistence pay off?

A January to Remember is the sixth book of the series, Twelve Months, Twelve Love Stories. See why so many romance novel enthusiasts are hooked on this series and the cast of characters. Get caught up in their stories. Find out who will be the next to fall in love.

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What makes you different from other people?

I have this creative streak that just won’t let up. I want to do a little bit of everything. I’m a freelance artist, with my specialty designing Christmas ornaments. I’ve competed in quite a few recipe contests (Pillsbury Bake-Off, Betty Crocker, Nestles, to name a few), And now I’ve embarked on this writing journey, something I’ve become very passionate about. My mind is always on to the next design, the next story.

What is your personality type?

I think most people would say I’m outgoing, but in reality, I’m very shy. I’d rather be the behind-the-scenes person. At any kind of social function, I’m the person who makes sure all the food and drinks are ready to go. I’m very detail minded, something I’m sure drives my family crazy on occasion.

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

Even though I don’t have an athletic bone in my body, I love baseball. There is something so All-American about being at the ballpark on a mid-summer night, watching a baseball game.

What is your favorite meal?

I love going out for breakfast. If I had my way, I’d eat breakfast for every meal. But this is probably because I am a big coffee drinker and everyone knows, coffee is a must for breakfast.

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

I never had any intention of becoming a write. Let along write a novel or a series. But with encouragement from quite a few of the friends I made during my recipe contesting days, one day I sat down and started writing. I’d thought I’d write in a more humorous style, based on my experiences in the contest world I was a part of. But evidently, this was not to be. Instead, I was, suddenly writing a romance novel. I do include quite a bit of humor in what I write. After all, one can’t be serious all the time. Especially when it comes to falling in love.

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

Read and research as much information about writing, publishing and marketing as you can. This is even more important if you are thinking about self-publishing your book. Connect with other authors, especially those who write in your genre. And finally? I sincerely believe if you write something good, you’ll eventually come out the winner in the end. It may take time and it’s a lot of hard work, but it’s definitely worth it in the end.

What are your writing goals for this year?

I never thought I’d arrive at this point, ready to begin on the seventh book of my series, Twelve Months, Twelve Love Stories. But with book six, A January to Remember, published, I’m more than eager to start on book seven. I began with two main characters in book one, A Million Decembers, and now this number has grown to possibly twenty. I like to keep the readers guessing by introducing the possible main characters in the next book. It makes me happy when readers tell me they can’t wait to read what’s next.

Know Charlie, the Heroine from Music for a Merman by Alice Renaud @alicerauthor #RLFblog #Fantasy RomanceAlice Renaud, 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Music for a Merman by Alice Renaud

Genre Fantasy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Rob Regor knew that humans were trouble. All the shape shifting mermen of the Morvann Islands knew it. And human women were double trouble… especially when they were lying on the road in front of a digger.

Rob has a mission. Go to the mainland. Work as a policeman. Spy on humans. Report back to his father, the head of the Regor Merman Clan. It should be easy. Until he has to arrest Charlie. Rob can’t fight his attraction to the sexy eco-warrior, and it puts him on one hell of a collision course with his family and his Clan. Will he break the rules – or break her heart, and his?

Love ’em and leave ’em, that was Charlie’s motto. It had served her well until now. But Rob is different… Can she open up her heart to Rob – when a secret buried in her past surfaces and changes her completely?

Know the Heroine from Music for a Merman

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

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

Charlie goes out to a late night bar or nightclub, to find some people still awake and up for some fun.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Chips. She can’t resist chips.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Her favorite outfit is a swimsuit. She’s never happier than when she’s near the sea, or better still, in it. She prefers casual clothes – jeans, shorts, T-shirts.

Does she know how to fix things?

Yes. Since she’s left home, she’s lived on her own, and often in places with dodgy electrics or faulty plumbing. She’s learnt to be self-sufficient and fix what doesn’t work.

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

Charlie is an eco-warrior. She was protesting against a development in the village of St-Sulien, on the Welsh coast. But the site manager called the police and she got arrested… by the hero of the story, Rob. Rob is a cop who is also… a shape shifting merman. She fell in love with him, which really wasn’t part of the plan!

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

Charlie likes children and is at ease with them. She will chat to them as equals, ask them questions, and play with them.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s a night owl rather than a lark… she’s a bit grumpy until she’s had her first cup of coffee. She hates being woken up suddenly.

How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?

Natural. She is very good at putting on an act. Though the mask slips sometimes.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

She will try to do it herself. She doesn’t like relying on other people.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

No earrings or piercings – she doesn’t tend to wear jewelry as it’s not practical when swimming. No tattoos – her stern family would not have approved when she was young, and she didn’t bother once she was an adult.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Public transport. She’s an environmental activist, and she walks the walk.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. She hates polluters.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Laura Tolomei, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us where we can read and review Virtus Sex.

Virtus Sex by Laura Tolomei

Genre: Erotic, LGBT, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell finds himself alone for the very first time in his life, he cannot understand what has gone wrong. From his earliest years, he had been with at least one, if not both, of the two special people he had chosen and deeply loved. Christopher Templeton, his phase mate, and Ylianor Caldwell, his father’s heart child, have always been his reference points, the two fixed stars of his evolving destiny. His insane lust for both have further strengthened his bond to them during the apparently endless time they had already spent together. And yet…no matter how much he gets of them, it’s never enough. Not of Ylianor, his adored princess, born and raised in Black Rose, his own home. Certainly not of Chris, his beloved angel, met as a mere eight-year-old on the hills of the same Black Rose that had brought Ylianor to him. So why is he alone now?

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where The Heat, Book 6, leaves off and reconnects the princess to her amazing power. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

Stressing Matteo D'Cruz from Jungle Salvation by MA Jewell @MAJewell_author #RLFblog #PNR #RomanticSuspense #ShifterLet’s meet Matteo D’Cruz from Jungle Salvation, The Jaguar Queens Book II, a paranormal romantic suspense novel, by MA Jewell. 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 latest book.

Jungle Salvation, The Jaguar Queens Book II by MA Jewell

Genre: Paranormal romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Jaguar shifter males lost in their cats are all animal, feral. Execution is the only course. Enforcer Matteo D’Cruz has terminated two and doesn’t care that he’s next–until Dakota.

Dragged back into the human world by well-meaning friends, jaguar shifter Matteo D’Cruz realizes he’s been in cat form for over seventy years. With another transformation, he could lose his tenuous hold on his humanity. In their world, the only end for a feral is execution. Damaged by grief and guilt, he doesn’t care overmuch. However, when he discovers an unmated latent female, he can’t resist her scintillating allure or his instinct to protect her at all costs.

Carefree Dakota Gorman travels to Brazil to rescue her sister. Determined to expose the drug lords who have manipulated her sibling into a hurried wedding, she’s certain the baffling hottie Matteo is one of them. After Dakota’s sister turns into a giant jaguar before her eyes, she must confront a new reality, one including latent family traits.

Matteo helps her trigger her first exhilarating metamorphosis into a jaguar, leaving no doubt about her genetics, but unknown shifter enemies cut short her joy.

A blackmailer sends Matteo a video of her transformation, demanding DNA samples. The extortionist threatens to post the recording to the internet and expose the shifters to the world. Dredging up courage that she didn’t know she possessed, Dakota joins Matteo and the other jag shifters to save her family–and her new species–from scientific experimentation.

Stressing Matteo D’Cruz

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

Please tell me about your hero.

Age: 133
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Brazilian Amazon Jungle,
Profession: Enforcer (Shifter code enforcement), Coffee
Ethnicity: Brazilian Culture; Mixed indigenous tribal and European appearance
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Jaguar Shifter

What does your hero look like?

After living as a jaguar in the Amazon for a few decades too long, Matteo has a unique appearance. Natural, tawny dreadlocks followed him into his six-foot plus human form, along with rich copper eyes and a V-shaped pattern of ochre rosettes down his back. When he’s enraged, he snarls, ensuring his adversary gets a glimpse of a great-cat canine.

Who is the significant other in his life?

Brilliant adrenalin junkie Dakota Gorman is bold, courageous, and protective of the weak and family, yet others see her as a carefree fashionista with an irresponsible streak. With two partially completed bachelors, and an abandoned medical degree to her credit, some even call her flighty. Discovering her true inner strength rocks Matteo to his core.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.

Any shifter party is a danger zone. Jag males are solitary and territorial, and since the females died out over seventy years ago, most have never even seen an unmated queen. The discovery of the latent females in the United States invigorates the all-male clan with hope for the future. Now, however, their mixed gatherings are powder kegs with a flame licking at the fuse.

Matteo has two roles. As a guest, he would travel from table to table, exchanging arm clasps and man hugs with the older males and fist bumps with the young ones. However, no one at the party would mistake his congenial manner for relaxed.

How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?

Matteo had thought a gathering of mixed company a thing of the past. So when viewing a room filled with male and female jag shifters flirting and getting to know one another, a sense of awe and hope for the future often strikes him. Enough to make him clear his throat to cover the emotion.

Since he retains a keen jaguar sense of smell while in his human form, scents have an impact on him. Dakota’s alluring fragrance tortures him. Cat instinct to claim the formidable female often sends a shift’s heat racing over his skin. Seeking relief, he’ll rub at his nose, though it’s a wasted motion.

Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

Matteo always resists a desire to find a solitary table. Because he must keep the peace, he makes frequent stops to greet young males flirting with the fair-skinned latents.

 

If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?

With a high need for carbs in human form, Matteo prefers fruit juice, specifically acai juice. Few drugs have any effect on shifters, and alcohol’s taste doesn’t appeal, but he’d thought he might enjoy the fun buzz reported by humans.

How much drink is his usual?

After shifting from cat to human, a need for carbs is impossible to ignore. A pitcher of fruity juice is not out of the question. However, if pastry is near, he prefers coffee.

The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

As the Enforcer, Matteo will search any secluded areas regularly. In this particular party, the females don’t yet know they are cats and are uninformed about the risks of an accidental mating. Any male who takes advantage of a naïve queen will answer to the Enforcer.

Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?

Matteo has few close friends, and he values those males as brothers. These older males, the ancients, will coordinate security between them, following Matteo’s lead. No one “latches on” to him. He’s too intimidating to most jag males.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?

Any male who picks a fight with Matteo is likely driven by cat instinct rather than any logical thought. He’d employ a submission hold and pin the impaired male with a dominant glare until the shifter came to his senses.

Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

See above.

Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?

If Matteo manages security at the party, he would not concern himself with sensitivities or perceptions. However, in a truly social setting, he will leave as early as politely possible.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?

Those few with authority over Matteo must earn his respect, and even then, if their logic is flawed, he will push back.

How does the hero react to hearing a scream?

Having a naturally protective nature, he’d investigate.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?

Likely due to his roots in the previous century, and assuming the attacker is male, his initial reaction will depend on the victim’s gender. If male, Matteo wonders if the man deserves the beating. If female, he calculates how to intervene.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?

Regardless of the victim’s gender, he will stop the assault to determine the facts, and after he’s satisfied his curiosity, he’s not above allowing a deserved punishment to continue.

This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?

Having a military background, he views retreat as a strategy to win a war or to minimize casualties. That said if a shifter female is involved, all bets are off. No sacrifice is too high to save a single queen.

The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?

He’d ignore the person with overt disdain, and if forced to interact, things will go poorly for any individual who has previously disappointed Matteo.

Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?

Despite his hardened nature, Matteo encourages young ones to challenge themselves, to become more than they are. He’d counsel the younger shifter in the moment, however, depending on the stakes; he’s also comfortable taking matters into his own hands.

The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?

He focuses on his main objective, the endgame goal. And if an enemy caused this pain, he plots his revenge.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“If you’d thought of any but yourself these last seventy years…”

What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?

Matteo endured decades of grief for a lost mate. He will spare Dakota that pain. (No more spoiler on that one lol)

What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?

He’s an educated savage with a gentleman’s heart.
