About Kayelle Allen

The Romance Lives Forever blog features authors and new books from all genres.

DV Stone, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Rock House Grill.

Rock House Grill by DV Stone

Genre Contemporary Romance Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Aden House, successful but driven chef and TV personality, refuses to slow down. His life implodes one night, damaging him both physically and emotionally. He’s rescued by a woman he thinks of as his angel.

Shay McDowell has rebuilt her life after her divorce. She juggles volunteer EMT duties and her job, while dreaming of becoming a chef. She finds her way to Rock House Grill and back into the life of the man she helped save.

Can love be the ingredient needed to survive the many obstacles they face?

QUICK

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

Yes, I also write fantasy and mid-grade. Rock House as a contemporary is new to me. I’ve always considered myself a fantasy/paranormal writer.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Usually an image or lyric spark an idea. One of my fantasy works in progress was inspired by Helm’s Deep in Lord of the Rings. One scene Aragorn and Haldir hugged after a hesitation by the elf. The look on his face became my character for Kíeran in Aimhirghin Kingdom at a Crossroad.

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

Getting the point across that matter what happens, there’s always hope. It may not be what you had in mind. For example Aden House wanted his restaurant, television show, and to take care of his sister. But choices he made nearly destroyed all of them.

When did you write your first book?…

I had been laid-off from work back in 2009. I struggled with circumstancial depression at the time. Like Aden, I had choices to make. After pulling myself off the couch I decided to follow my dream.

FUN

Read the series: The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife by Liese Sherwood-Fabre @lsfabre #RLFblog #SherlockHolmes #cozymysteryLiese Sherwood-Fabre, 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.

The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife in the Early Case Files of Sherlock Holmes

Genre: Mystery

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

Before Sherlock Holmes became the world’s greatest consulting detective, scandal rocked the Holmes family.

Arthur Conan Doyle provided few details on Holmes’ boyhood. His ancestors were country squires, his grandmother was the sister of the French artist Vernet, and he had a brother named Mycroft – seven years his senior. Recently, a cache of documents has been discovered detailing, in Sherlock’s own hand, his early forays into criminal investigation.

Only weeks into his first year at Eton, Sherlock’s father calls him and his brother back to Underbyrne, the ancestral estate. The village midwife has been found with a pitchfork in her back in the estate’s garden, and Mrs. Holmes has been accused of the murder. Can Sherlock find the true killer in time to save her from the gallows?

Which book is this in the series?

This is the first of the early case files of Sherlock Holmes. The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife sets him on the path to his final career as the world’s most famous consulting detective.

How many books do you plan for the series?

My plan is to follow him to just prior to his meeting with Watson. I’m not sure how many that will involve. He is thirteen in the first, and he doesn’t meet Watson until he was 27. The first three (and the fourth planned one) span a single year. I don’t think the rest will be so close together.

How many books are completed?

At present, I have completed three and have plans for the fourth. The first three will all be out this summer. The fourth is planned for publication in 2021.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Of course, there is Sherlock, but we are also introduced to his family: Violette, his mother is a woman with a brilliant mind, but restricted by Victorian conventions from achieving her potential; Siger, his father, is loving, but remote; Sherlock’s Uncle Ernest tinkers with weapons and explosives; and his older brother Mycroft, an even greater genius than Sherlock, but a bit of a bully. We are also introduced to a young pickpocket, Constance, who develops a friendship (and possibly a bit more) with Sherlock.

What is the overall theme in this series?

I find my stories all focus on some way on belonging. In the book one, Sherlock’s first year at Eton isn’t going well, in part because he doesn’t fit in. The family must rally around Mrs. Holmes if they are to save her from the gallows and in doing so, develops deeper bonds between each other. These newfound ties will be tested but will serve them all in the later books.

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

The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife (Case One)

The Adventure of the Murdered Gypsy (Case Two)

The Adventure of the Deceased Scholar (Case Three)

What did you like best about writing this series?

While I had the adult Sherlock as a guide, I still had a lot I could fill in about him as a boy. It required a lot of research about the Victorian era, which was also fascinating. I learned about aspects of British life in the mid-1800s that will serve me well in trivia games in the future.

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

I have a thriller set in post-Soviet Russia Saving Hope, and have numerous short stories in anthologies as well as in my own collections.

Bucket list of Mystic Rayne from An Angels' Unintentional Entanglement @TenaStetler #RLFblog #Paranormal Romance MysteryLet’s meet Mystic Rayne from An Angels’ Unintentional Entanglement, a paranormal romance by Tena Stetler. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement.

An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Fallen warrior angel, Caden Silverwind, lives alone in Colorado’s rugged Rockies, healing from physical wounds as well as the mental anguish suffered during battles with dark demons. Then he finds a woman barely clinging to life after a horrendous beating. He is not prepared for the entanglement she brings to his life, nor the feelings she awakens in him.

Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent, Mystic Rayne’s personal dilemma and assignment nearly gets her killed. Divine intervention is a complication she never expected and her growing attraction to Caden is undeniable. Can she trust him with her secret?

Their quest to uncover her attacker takes them from the pristine mountains in Colorado to the wilds of Wyoming. Along the way, they find answers which may place them in more danger. Determined to solve the mystery, they must also navigate their feelings and fears to find love and unite heaven and earth.

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 35+

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Wind River Valley Reservation

Profession: Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent

Ethnicity: Native American Indian

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

Tall, slender, long thick straight black hair that falls nearly to my waist. I usually wear it in a long braid hanging down my back. High cheek bones, full lips (at least that what Caden claims) and bronze skin.

Please tell us a little about yourself. I attended Harvard Law School to the chagrin of my grandfather. He’s or was the shaman for our tribe. I had an independent streak a mile wide and wanted to spread my wings off the reservation. As it turns out, my destiny was right here helping my people. Which is how and why I became a Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent assigned to Wyoming’s Wind River Valley. After my grandfather passed on, I took his place as shaman and on the tribal council which didn’t set well with the younger men of the tribe. Times they are a changing which nearly cost me my life.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Caden Silverwind. He’s a warrior angel. But that’s a story for another time. Maybe you should read to book to find out. <wink>

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order? I am the older twin. I have a twin brother. We were estranged for a long time. I managed to keep this a secret from the author for quite a while. LOL

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child. A stuffed eagle my spirit animal. I used to carry it around insisting it could fly. Which it couldn’t, but it helped me understand visions that I tried to deny. I was a difficult child.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Decadent cocoa pie with meringue topping. Yum!

Tell us about your best friend.

Chinoah – We’ve been friends since we could walk. My grandfather dubbed us the trouble twins with good reason. LOL

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Niagara Falls and tour the United States in an RV. This is a great land and I’ve seen so very little of it.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

The plot of land in Colorado where I was attacked by my own people. Not that my people are bad, just one that let evil spirits lead him. Other’s made bad choices, but you have those types wherever you go. Don’t you?

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

That’s a tough one. I’d like to meet the original government council that set up the reservations and put my people on them. I’d like to know their reasoning. History paints an ugly picture, I’d like to know if it was true and given the outcome, if they’d done anything differently.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

The man who tried to take my birthright away. He was a vicious manipulator. He did unauthorized things with the tribe’s power given to him.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

I’d like to go back in time before my grandfather died. Tell him he was right and I’ve made my peace with my destiny. I also wish I’d spent more time with him, learned the old ways from him. But I know he’s proud of me.

About Tena Stetler

Tena Stetler is a best-selling author of award winning paranormal romance/mysteries. She has an over-active imagination, which led to writing her first vampire romance as a tween to the chagrin of her mother and delight of her friends. After many years as a paralegal, then an IT Manager, she decided to live out her dream of pursuing a publishing career. She now has eleven books published, two under contract and several in the pipeline.

With the Rocky Mountains outside her window, she sits at her computer surrounded by a wide array of witches, shapeshifters, demons, faeries, and gryphons, with a Navy SEAL or two mixed in telling their tales. Her books tell stories of magical kick-ass women and mystical alpha males that dare to love them. Travel, adventure and a bit of mystery flourish in her books along with a few companion animals to round out the tales.

Colorado is home; shared with her husband of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a fifty-year-old box turtle. When she’s not writing, her time is spent kayaking, camping, hiking, biking or just relaxing in the great Colorado outdoors.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

 

 

Why did you choose this character for the interview today? Her strong spirit and fearlessness. She guided this story and kept the other character’s in line as much as possible. There are a cast of strong willed characters in An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement.

 

 

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you? That she had a twin brother. Didn’t see that coming.

 

 

Are any sequels planned for this book? An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement is the fourth book in A Demon’s Witch Series. A Magic Redemption was released in December of 2018 and I’m working on the sixth book in the series as we speak. All the books in the series are can be read as stand alones.

 

 

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet? I have a cozy mystery series simmering. I hope to bring it to fruition in the near future.

 

 

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? You are the reason I write my stories. I am so thankful for your support and continued reading of my books. For you, I want to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure. Characters that will grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh. Nothing feels better to a writer than to have readers clamoring for the next book. It makes my heart soar. Thank you all so much!

Mail-Order Beatrice by Caroline Clemmons @CarolinClemmons #RLFblog #NewRelease #historical #westernromanceCaroline Clemmons, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Mail-Order Beatrice.

Mail-Order Beatrice by Caroline Clemmons

Genre historical western romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Beatrice “Attie” Kendall has to escape from home with her six-week-old son. With the help of her kind brother, she goes to Atlanta where she consults a matchmaker. After the hard life Attie’s been dealt for her twenty years, she’ll finally have a good home with nice people and a friend nearby. In fact, her husband and their home seem too good to be true. Does she dare trust that her life has really changed?

Tate Merritt isn’t ready to get married but he gives in to his grandfather’s coercing. Grandpa raised him and Tate tries to please the older man. Tate doesn’t know what to think about this mail-order bride. She isn’t at all the wife he imagined—plus, she showed up with a baby! The child’s a cute little thing but Tate isn’t sure how he feels about her surprising him. How can he trust a woman whose story keeps changing?

Life presents obstacles to further complicate Attie and Tate’s marriage. They’ll have to work together to solve their problems and protect their family. Can they trust one another enough to make this marriage work?

Why did you write this book?

I was fortunate to be invited to join other authors writing books in the Widows, Brides, and Secret Babies series. Each is a stand-alone novella but all have in common that the heroine is a mail-order bride who shows up with a baby she’s kept secret from the prospective groom.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Historical western romance is my favorite to read and to write.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood. However, there are so many wonderful heroines in romances that choosing only one is difficult.

What are you working on at the moment?

Currently I’m writing An Agent for Judith, a Pinkerton Matchmaker series romance set to release on July 19 as #79 in this popular series (but each book is very different). This is my third contribution to the series, preceded by An Agent for Magdala and An Agent for Lydia.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’ll be very busy writing for the rest of 2020. On July 7 I’ll release Desperate in Delaware in the Yours Truly: The Lovelorn series. On July 21, I’ll release one of the Golden Legacy series. On August 4, I’ll release Louisiana Bride in the North and South series. There are more scheduled but that’s probably all you want to know about today.

Two organizing tips from Brenda Sparks, author of Alpha Revealed @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceBrenda Sparks, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Thanks for sharing two tips with us today, but first, please tell us about Alpha Revealed.

Alpha Revealed

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Natasha Peterhoff is the luckiest vampire in the world. Having pined over the sexy, but aloof Vladimir Starikovich for centuries, her feelings are reciprocated when the pair are drawn to each other the night of her brother’s wedding. Unfortunately, the stark light of day dawns, and the couple parts ways.
Back in Siberia, Vlad is overcome by doubts. Not only will Natasha’s brother kill him, but his own past is reason enough to keep her away. He vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe, even it if means never seeing her again.
With so many reasons to stay apart, will the ties that bind be strong enough to pull them together?

Happy Mother’s Day! Here are some tips that hopefully not just mothers but everyone will appreciate. I know Natasha, the heroine in Alpha Revealed, would be the first to appreciate the tips I’m sharing today, especially when she was trying to keep her pregnancy from her family.

Two Tips for Family

Don’t keep secrets. They have a way of coming out in the worst way possible.

Be accepting. Your family member might not do things the way you would or share your viewpoint, but that doesn’t make them wrong. Accept them and learn to appreciate the differences.

Two Tips for Organizing

Make a To-Do list. Nothing keeps a person on track like a list of chores that can be referenced again and again. Personally, I LOVE crossing off each item as it is completed.

Set reminders on your phone on computer. I can’t begin to tell you how many times my phone has kept me from forgetting to do something.

Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #fantasy #magic #PNRDee S Knight, 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 Your Desire.

Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Your Desire. A mysterious shop appears in town for one reason: to bring the spice of passion and the thrill of love to one special person. Magic is in more than the item purchased—it’s in the heart of the buyer, often hidden, usually surprising. And after enchantment takes hold? The store fades from sight and memory, only to reappear somewhere else. Maybe in your town….

The Artist and the Director
Derica Meadows, the conservative Director of Accounting at a large San Francisco firm, sees the most beautiful dress imaginable in a shop window. So different from her usual genderless pant suits, she’s swept into acquiring the gown for a formal business affair the next night. But a funny thing happens on the way to her party, in the form of a compelling man and a photo shoot. Suddenly, the normally logical Derica finds herself swimming in a sea of sexual freedom she’d never before considered. The hunk of a artist can satisfy her fantasies, but what will happen to her climb up the corporate ladder in the process? And to her heart?

Awards Night
Allison Hayes has always tried to be all things to all people. Need anything done? Call Allison. It seems no one considers that Allison might have needs, too. When she goes home one night to find a man injured in her pasture, she resigns herself to helping out yet again. However, it isn’t long before she finds the roles reversed, as the mysterious man fulfills her deepest desires. By morning, Allison knows that in being the Good Samaritan this time, she’s gotten more than she gave. The question is, was it passion for one night or for a lifetime of love?

Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire

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

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

Allison doesn’t have too much time to be bored–she works full-time as a nurse and also is one of those “go-to” people everyone seems to call on when they need a patsy…I mean good person to help out. Allison rarely says no. She gave up her dreams of traveling in order to take care of first her mother and then her father when they became ill, and now lives on her inheritance, a large farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where she raises sheep. Considering that an accident from childhood left her with a nasty limp and the fact that her body wears out quickly, her normal life takes all the energy she has. Thus, no time for boredom.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Allison enjoys food but she’s one of those people who eats to live, not lives to eat. Her weight is important because of the complications with her legs, but it wouldn’t matter. Eating is not her fun thing in life. When she does have an impulse, it’s for pizza, a treat she doesn’t have often.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Usually, she’s in a nurse’s uniform. Otherwise, she likes loose-fitting clothing that’s comfortable. She raises sheep, so she’s big on wool for the winter. She loves the feel of sheepskin slippers and coats, and has some very nice wool sweaters and slacks. For the warm (dare I say hot?) Virginia summers, she likes linen or cotton slacks and short sleeved tee shirts. She rarely wears shorts due to the scars on her legs. One thing she would never have willingly worn is the formal taffeta gown she bought for her high school reunion. Not only were the colors horrid, but the stupid thing made a noise with each step she took. Finding the dress must have been fate, though, because of what else (or who else) she found beside a crashed car in her front yard later that night!

Does she know how to fix things?

Allison is fairly independent and can take care of light repairs around the house, but luckily for her, she has her uncle and cousin living on the next farm and they will usually help with anything she can’t handle.

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

She tried to say no, that she would not help with this high school reunion. She came up with excuse after excuse but could not talk herself out of the guilt if she left her best friend high and dry without help. So, she gave in–not all that gracefully. Then she had went shopping and did another thing badly–find a dress for the costumed vintage event, something reminiscent of the 1950s. And what a horrible dress she ended up with! Truly, it was the worst possible dress to everyone except one special person. For him, it turned out to be a miracle. Or maybe a piece of magic!

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

Allison enjoys children, though she doesn’t find herself around kids she doesn’t know all that often. When she does, she forgets that she limps until the honesty of children’s questions remind her. Still, she doesn’t mind their questions as much as their parents’ embarrassment. She would love to have her own kids someday. Living in her small town doesn’t seem to present many opportunities. Until fate drops a guy right into her pasture–after tossing him through her fence and against one of her huge oak trees!

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Truthfully, she’d always appreciate more sleep, but her work ethic doesn’t allow her to sleep beyond the alarm. By the time she’s showered and had her first dose of caffeine, she’s ready to meet the day.

Can she use chopsticks?

No. When she has Chinese food she’s firmly in the “Fork, please,” set.

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

Yes, and lots of it. Black, please.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Allison barely has a mobile phone, much less apps. I’m sure she wonders what an app is.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

She doesn’t have pierced ears. When she wears earrings–which she usually does not to work–she wears something close to the ear. No chandeliers because they’re distracting. She has a few nice pairs of gemstone studs.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

No tattoos, no piercings, no perfumes. Just skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She has a car, and needs it, living on the farm. Public transportation is pretty much out of the question even when she’s in town.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.
