The Duke She Despised by Alina K Field, in the Winter Wishes Regency Holiday Romance Anthology

Genre Regency Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

The new Duke of Kinmarty has lost everyone who mattered and gained naught but a title, and debt, and an old pile of a castle. When a fetching new housekeeper appears on his doorstep frantic to ready the place for the Yuletide, he seizes the chance for a respite from grieving and pretends to be the new duke’s estate factor.

With her cousin’s children due to arrive from India, a vicar’s widow hides her identity and takes a position as housekeeper to the children’s dreadful uncle, the man who years ago sabotaged her own chance for happiness. Overwhelmed by a castle understaffed and in disarray, she forges a bond with the new duke’s charming but not very competent factor, not knowing that he’s hiding something as well.

QUICK

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

I love to write all kinds of romance–paranormal, contemporary, sci-fi, and fantasy. It’s fun and challenging to switch up genres, but I always write romance with a HEA.

How do you come up with ideas?

Ideas come from everywhere–a snippet of conversation, an online article, a movie or television show. Sometimes ideas seem to pop in my mind from out of nowhere. That’s the fun of being a writer.

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

The characters. Everything begins and ends with them. They tell me their stories.

When did you write your first book?

I wrote my first book back in 1995, but my first book wasn’t published until October 27, 2004. That book was Annabelle Lee, which is available today as Uncovering Annabelle. I just celebrated my 15th year as a published author. It’s been a blast. I look forward to the next fifteen years.

An Awareness of Evil in Mystic Desire by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #suspense #anthology #PNRDee S Knight, 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 book.

An Awareness of Evil in Mystic Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Mystic Desire, is a collection of short paranormal romance stories. I have always been a big fan of short stories, both reading and writing them. For the reader it is a chance to read the work of a diverse group of authors. I have discovered some great writers from reading short stories. From the author’s prospective, it gives us a chance to experiment on something new, a different style, or something a bit more daring.

The themes are varied from native American Dream Catchers, to lustful, vampires. And from hot warlocks to a zombie apocalypse. There is something in this anthology for everyone, from soft and tender love, to hot passionate, kinky sex.

An Awareness of Evil – Dee S Knight

Only two things stand between evil and a small girl: the visions of Amanda McMasters and Detective Brendan Gilchrist. Neither can afford to be wrong.

What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?

Anything with biscuits and gravy.

Describe the perfect vacation.

Anywhere with hubby and best friend. I guess I prefer the mountains as opposed to the shore, though. With Jack, I’m happy wherever we go and whether we’re active or just sit quietly and hold hands. I’m a lucky woman!

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

I had a furry, stuffed cat that I dragged everywhere until its tail nearly came off. Poor thing!

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

Romances thrillers, mysteries.

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

Queen’s We Are the Champions

Accidental Attraction by Nicole Morgan

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

They call them accidents for a reason.

They’re unplanned, unwanted, and unwelcome.

But what happens when that accident gives you all you never knew you always wanted?

This collection of stories brings you into the worlds of men and women who haven’t planned for what’s about to happen to them.

They haven’t wished for it.

They haven’t been looking for it.

In fact, they probably don’t even want it. Or so they think anyway.

Join these characters as they learn their heart, body, and soul may have different plans than their minds.

Because some accidents are… oh so good.

Meet Remy from The Mortal Vampire in the Mystic Desire Anthology by Suzanne Smith @Suzanneromance #RLFblog #Paranormal romance.Welcome Remy from The Mortal Vampire in Mystic Desire, a new Paranormal Romance Anthology by Suzanne Smith and others.

Introducing Remy

Age: Three hundred years and counting. He’s immortal

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Unknown, as he has amnesia. He was found bloodied and battered, barely alive in a California gold mine by his vampire maker Dr. Merlot.

Profession: None.

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Pure vampire.

Please provide a physical description of your character.

Well over 6′ tall, with flawlessly smooth, pale skin, wavy, jet black hair and dark, piercing eyes. Athletic build, pretty buff, for being a vampire and having only a liquid diet.

Please tell us a little about your character.

Remy is a bit cocky and conceited. He has no qualms about sucking the life out of humans, who he considers inferior, until he meets the innocent and beautiful mortal Angela.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?

Angela.

How does your hero dress?

Nice, but casual. Lived in jeans and silk jerseys, linen shirts. He doesn’t rely on his clothes to attract attention or make a statement. He is irresistible and he knows it.

What are the qualities of his voice?

Deep, rich, sexy. Saturated with testosterone. The kind of voice that hits you right in the groin area.

If you could only hear this character’s voice (but not see him) what characteristic would identify him?

Confident.

Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

He lives comfortably in a spacious condo on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. He could live in a mansion if he wanted to as he has made profitable investments in property in Chicago’s prestigious Gold Coast area and is in fact quite wealthy.

Does he have children?

As a vampire, he doesn’t have children, but he feels a strong affection for kids. He has never been able to bring himself to harm a child. Unfortunately, everyone else is fair game.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

Honestly, blood. He’s hungry. But when he meets Angela, that turns to lust, then, the need for intimacy.

How does your character handle challenges?

Well, because he is such a powerful vampire, the only person in his circle that presents a physical challenge is his maker, Dr. Merlot. It pisses Remy off a little bit to know that Merlot could best him in a fight. But, he has the good sense to avoid going toe to toe with Merlot. He is also faced with the personal challenge of not being able to consummate his love for Angela, which he deals with by sheepishly running away when they are on the verge of making love. He only leaves to protect her but she doesn’t know that, so he comes off as a bit of a jerk.

Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most?

On an emotional level, the human he is in love with, Angela. On a physical level, his estranged vampire girlfriend Giselle.

Why?

He is afraid Angela might see him as unworthy or undeserving of love because of what he is. That wounds him deeply. Giselle has a jealous and vindictive nature and at one point in the story, she is much stronger than Remy.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

Frankly, who better to write about? I’m eternally young, smart, beautiful, powerful. But even with all that going for me, I’m still flawed, which adds an extra layer of interest.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

Yes. When all the dust settled we both found out who I really was.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about?

Maybe my maker, Dr. Merlot. Care to tell us why? Because anyone that has been around for over one thousand years has a story to tell.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?

My story is just beginning.

Tell us about The Mortal Vampire in Mystic Desire

Genre: Supernatural Romance
Book heat: R
Remy is far from your typical vampire, though he doesn’t know it until he meets the mortal Angela. Once their eyes lock, not only does he feel physical pain for the first time in his existence, but he also sees a vision of himself in another world, one that is both seductive and frightening. Because Angela’s influence is so strong, he begins to consider the possibility that perhaps she is more than human after all. He tries to convince himself that she is a witch, attempting to cast a spell on him. But he knows that this theory makes little sense because he is immune to what the witches call “glamouring”, seizing control of their unwitting victims mind. Still, as his attraction for Angela grows, he becomes weaker and weaker, until he is certain that true death is only hours away.
From witches and warlocks to ghosts, psychics and more, the Mystic Desire anthology by BVS has something for everyone.
