One Bite To Remember by Esme Wilde

Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Elle Morgan is secretly crushing on a vampire but doesn’t have time for love. She’s too busy dodging the escalating threats of a stalker while protecting her seat as the last goddess on the Underworld Council. But when her best friend suggests the perfect man might also serve as the perfect protector, she decides to give the Mystic Matchmakers a shot.
Bash Forbes is looking for true love. After centuries of serving as a rough and ready vampire Enforcer for the Alpha Chi, he wants to put down roots with the perfect woman. Unfortunately his idea of the perfect woman is a sexy, sloe-eyed, shape-shifting goddess who’s way out of his league, so he can’t believe it when the Mystic Matchmakers deliver her like a Christmas gift to his doorstep.
Elle’s meddling best friend, Bash’s interfering brothers, and the matchmakers propel Elle and Bash into a sizzling hot relationship. But Elle’s stalker is gearing up to finish what he started, and Bash is keeping dangerous secrets. If the two of them don’t open up to each other and face their enemy together, the trouble hurtling in their direction could tear them apart forever.

Know the Hero from Gabe by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi romanceVeronica Scott, 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 about the book.

Gabe: A Badari Warriors Sci Fi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 5) by Veronica Scott

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13+
Gabe Carter, hotshot pilot and ex-Special Forces soldier, is far from his home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Shot down by the enemy over desolate territory far from his Badari allies and gravely injured, Gabe’s only hope is a mysterious woman on the run herself.
Keshara has to decide whether to abandon the human to die of his injuries on a windswept mountain top or give up her own quest for freedom and take him to a place he can be helped. The undeniable spark between them complicates matters.
His attraction to her is off the charts but when she betrays him to the Khagrish enemy, Gabe doesn’t know what to believe. Trapped inside an alien lab bursting with mysteries and lies, his only hope may be to trust her…again.
Because the renegade alien scientist running her own private experiments wants to use him to accomplish her goals and perpetuate the evil, no matter what she has to do to ensure his compliance. Keshara’s life hangs in the balance and Gabe has to make a choice.
This is the sixth book in the Badari Warriors world (and the fifth book in the series) and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Know the Hero from Gabe: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel (Sectors New Allies Series Book 5)

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Gabe can’t stand being inactive or bored so he’d get up a card game with buddies, maybe go for a late night run or volunteer for extra duty in his pilot job.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
He works hard to stay in shape, to be prepared for combat missions and eats very healthy foods, so probably a mix of carbs and proteins, maybe trail mix with nuts and dried berries if he only needs a snack.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
He generally wears black tee shirts, camouflage utility pants and combat boots. Plus of course his knife and a blaster!
Does he know how to fix things?
He’s a soldier and a pilot primarily but he’ll make an attempt to fix things in an emergency. He’s got a good technical mind and understands the bigger picture of how things work in his technologically advanced universe. His way of fixing things might not be the conventional solution but it works.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Gabe does the best he can under any situation and if there’s a failure, he learns from it and moves on. He’s not easily defeated – he’s constantly thinking of alternative solutions and will only give up when he’s dead…so, in effect as long as he’s breathing, he’s moving forward and problem solving.
The book begins with him flying through a storm, trying to escape three enemy fighters, and he eventually crashes, but Gabe perseveres despite his injuries.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Gaber doesn’t have much experience with kids but he likes them, especially their thirst for knowledge about the world around them. He enjoys tutoring the Badari cubs in the sanctuary valley, which he does as he has free time.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
He’s not a morning person but give him something hot with a hefty dose of caffeine and he’s ready to go. In combat situations, he doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for the ideal time of day, so he’s trained himself to respond rapidly at any hour of the day or night.
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
Gabe’s always himself – he doesn’t put on airs and he’s not boastful. What you see in what you get with him. Most people in the valley are aware he’s an ex-Special Forces soldier and they know he’s a hot pilot. They can see how the Alpha relies on Gabe for tackling dangerous assignments, so he lets his actions speak for him.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
If a worker is assigned to do a specific task, like servicing the engines of captured enemy flyers, he’ll stay out of the person’s way. Otherwise, he’s a self-service kinda guy who’d rather just take care of whatever needs doing.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
He has a Sectors Special Forces tattoo on his upper bicep. No piercings. Not to give spoilers here but IF Gabe was to become the mate of a Badari woman (author gives coy grin here – you’ll have to read the book), then he’d receive a ‘claiming mark’ on his shoulder, which the Badari goddess would turn into a golden circle like a tatt on his shoulder, to show her approval of the mate bond.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
In the dire situation on the Badari planet, there aren’t any private vehicles. He flies shuttles which have been captured from the enemy, in support of military operations.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle! Gabe’s a practical guy and he cares about the environment.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Know the Hero from Slade by Julie Lence @julielence #RLFblog #Historical Western RomanceJulie Lence, 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 about the book.

Slade by Julie Lence

Slade Barlow discovers hiding out at Jill’s corn farm is more rewarding than stealing from the Arizona silver mines.
Genre Western Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Managing the farm since her pa’s death hasn’t been easy for Jillianne Prescott. The list of repairs is long and money is scarce. To add to her burdens is the deal Ma struck up with the sheriff. In exchange for food and a warm bed, the sheriff sends his prisoners to work the farm. Never one to bother with men, Jillianne is nonetheless thankful for the help, until, one by one, they run off. This latest one won’t be any different. Heavily muscled and full of tomfoolery, she has no doubt he’ll sneak off to Mexico before the sun rises. But when he proves her wrong, and takes it upon himself to find the coyote prowling the farm at night, Jillianne can’t help but admit there’s more to Slade than sinew and tomfoolery.
Be the guest at a necktie social or work at the widow Prescott’s farm? He might be an outlaw, and have a lot of faults, but stupidity isn’t one of them. Slade Barlow will hide out at the farm until tempers cool and then leave Texas for good, have the spread he’s been saving for. But the widow isn’t the frail woman he expected. And her daughter does things to his gut best left ignored. Then again, Jill has an intriguing birthmark. And curves his fingers itch to explore. Sassy and pretty, she’s the type of woman a man marries. Never one to favor a woman’s long list of rules, he’ll keep his distance, track down her coyote, and steal more than one kiss from her.

Know the Hero from Slade

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
It depends on where he is. If he’s in a town, Slade is likely to find the nearest poker game and gamble until dawn. If’s he’s out in the open, he’ll make camp and lounge by the fire until he falls asleep.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Jerky. It’s something he can easily stuff into his pocket or saddlebags and take with him.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Dark trousers, comfortable checkered shirt, his worn boots and Stetson.
Does he know how to fix things?
Slade can mend a fence line and build a porch; an old Colorado ranch hand taught him how to work with wood. But to fix something such as a cookstove or a chimney, he doesn’t have those skills.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
In Arizona territory, someone stole Slade’s poker winnings. Two outlaws blamed the theft on Roth, another outlaw with a reputation just as dangerous as Slade’s. Believing his buddies, Slade tracks Roth to Revolving Point, TX and discovers that Roth is now married. To lure Roth into the open and assure the outlaw returns Slade’s money, Slade breaks into Roth’s home and uses Roth’s wife as bait… and succumbs to a gunshot wound. He’s hauled off to jail, and the only thing saving him from Roth killing him, or the governor from throwing him in Huntsville Penitentiary since Roth’s wife is his niece, is notorious outlaw turned sheriff, Buck Grayson.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
He’s not mean, but he doesn’t go out of his way to acknowledge them. Mostly he avoids eye contact and side-steps around them. He grew up in a brothel, left home when he was 18 and took on various jobs before turning to outlawing. None of which really put him in the company of children to learn how to interact with them.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
If he’s around a campfire, he’ll get the coffee cooking and feed his horse. In town, he’s likely to hit up the eatery, or the saloon, for coffee. On Jill’s farm, he’s milking the cow and prowling for her intruder before his morning coffee.
How does he handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
He doesn’t concern himself with polite society, knows he’s rude and brash and prefers to keep that persona, until he meets Jill. Unwilling to cause trouble for her, or embarrass her, he tones down some of his brashness.
Valet or takes care of himself?
He takes care of himself. If he were ever introduced to a valet, he’d send the valet running for the hills.
Necktie/cravat or open shirt?
Open shirt. Slade has little use for fancy clothes.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Both.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
Natural hair. He’s the type to poke fun at a wig, and any man who wears one.
Carriage or horseback?
He prefers horseback, but isn’t against riding in a carriage or a buckboard.
Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Know the Hero from A Place In Your Heart by Kathy Otten @kathyotten #RLFblog #Historical RomanceKathy Otten, 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 about the book.

A Place In Your Heart by Kathy Otten

Genre Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Gracie McBride isn’t looking for love; she’s looking for respect. But in this man’s world of Civil War medicine, Gracie is expected to maintain her place changing beds and writing letters. Her biggest nemesis is the ward surgeon, Doctor Charles Ellard, who seems determined to woo her with arrogant kisses and terrible jokes.
Charles is an excellent surgeon. He assumed he would be well received by an army at war. He was not. Friendless and alone, he struggles to hide the panic attacks that plague him, while the only person who understands him is a feisty Irish nurse clearly resolved to keep him at a distance.
But, Charles is sent to the battlefield, and Gracie is left with a wounded soldier, a box of toys, and a mystery which can only be solved by the one man she wishes could love her, both as a woman and a nurse.

Know the Hero from A Place In Your Heart

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
I don’t believe I have ever been bored, per se. When I have time I often read. A Manual of Military Surgery, is always good to keep fresh in the mind. Or I write. I’m currently working on a paper, Pymeia and Surgical Fevers, which if published, may provide the catalyst necessary to instill a change in the current perception that laudable pus in a wound is a good sign.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
I do enjoy fresh bread. The yeasty aroma reminds me of home.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
In this regard I agree with my grandfather in that a slovenly appearance is disrespectful. A clean shirt and tie, with a neatly pressed uniform.
Does he know how to fix things?
I am a surgeon, by definition I fix things every day. However, if I have something non human to repair, such as a watch, I go to the library, read a book on the subject, come home and make the necessary repair.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
I can’t dance. And the construct of socialization skills baffle me. I have no friends.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
I have treated many ill and hurt children. They do seem to have a propensity to disregard adult warnings regarding safety. Male children often engage in reckless behaviors, which consequently end with one or more receiving an injury.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
I do long for the day when I might be able to sleep beyond the light of dawn. And coffee. I do enjoy a good brisk cup of black coffee to start the day.
How does he handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
As I have mentioned social situations are not my forte. However, I have had a proper education and do know the rules of proper gentlemanly behavior.
Valet or takes care of himself?
I prefer to dress myself. My grandfather does have a man who assists him and looks after both our clothing. Being in the army however, I have learned to make do.
Necktie/cravat or open shirt?
As I said, clean shirt and pressed uniform. Although, while performing surgery I operate in my shirtsleeves with an apron.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
While performing surgery, my shirtsleeves are rolled up. Otherwise, the cuff extends an inch or two beyond the sleeve of my uniform jacket.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
I am not an expert on fashion, but I do not believe powdered wigs to be in style any longer.
Carriage or horseback?
A home Grandfather kept a horse and carriage at the livery. Here in the Army, I have my own horse. He is not fond of crossing water, but like me, he is tall, so we are well matched.

Before the Whistle by Linda O’Connor

Genre Sports romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Jordyn Kendra is a talented designer and savvy businesswoman. Spending eighteen hours a day establishing and running a successful business doesn’t leave much time for pursuing a relationship, and frankly she hasn’t really missed it. But when an invitation arrives that could help her fulfill her career dreams, she has to make a decision. What’s harder: going to a gala without a date or finding someone to ask?
Ben Matthews, head athletic therapist for the wildly popular Clarington Quakes hockey team, tends to stand out in a crowd. When Jordyn doesn’t recognize him, it puts a dent in his ego, but he catches her attention when he jumps in to save a life.
She’s a queasy bystander, cowering at the sight of blood, and he’s cool, calm, and confident, which she finds irresistible. With a little prodding from her spirited aunt, Jordyn realizes that she and Ben might be the perfect mismatch.
Before the Whistle – when cool and calm in an emergency is totally hot.

Know the Hero from Before the Whistle

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Goes to the gym or kicks back and watches the sports highlights from the day.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Street meat – hot dog or sausage with the works. Quick and easy.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Khakis, collared shirt, and a Clarington Quakes team jacket.
Does he know how to fix things?
His handyman skills could use a little work, but he’s great to have around in a medical emergency. Cardiac arrest? Respiratory distress? That he can fix.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
He was tired of his tiny place close to the arena. It was time to find a new place, preferably with a view of the Charlebois River. He found a little house, but the deal fell through. Enough. He asked a realtor for help, and now he has the lead on a condominium – with a great view and even better neighbors.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Doesn’t daunt him – he’s outgoing and happy to meet Quakes fans of all ages.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
When the alarm goes, he’s up out of bed and ready to roll.
Can he use chopsticks?
Why would he when a knife and fork are so much faster? Unless he was dining out with the elusive Jordyn Kendra. Then he’d be in no rush to finish the meal, and he’d fumble with chopsticks one grain of rice at a time.
Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it?
Yup. Large double double at the drive-thru on the way to work.
What apps would he have on his phone?
ESPN, theScore, SHARKdocs, SportsMed, ATReports
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Beard or clean-shaven?
Clean-shaven

Let’s meet Tornahdo from Lights Out, a science fiction / space opera by Kayelle Allen. He might be dead, but that’s not going to stop him from saving mankind. As a member of the Ghost Corps, human special ops soldiers who have been resurrected with the blood of immortals, this is one ghost who’s not taking no for an answer.

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

What does this person look like?

Tornahdo is dusky-skinned, brown eyes, thick brown wavy hair that curls when long. He keeps his hair military short. He is 6 feet tall. Genetic enhancements make him quite strong, but one odd trait is the inability to grow facial hair.

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

His abuela (Grandmother) until he joined Ghost Corps.

How does your character dress?

He wears the Ghost Corps Master Sergeant’s uniform. Even when out of uniform, he still looks military.

What are the qualities of your character voice (pitch, quality, volume)?

He is Hispanic-Terran and has a slight accent. The tone is medium range when calm. He rarely raises his voice. He speaks fast in his native tongue. His voice is deep, but closer to tenor than baritone.

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

His accent. Or his favorite prayer. He will use some Spanish terms such as Abuela. He nicknames everyone.

How educated is this character (book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced)?

Tornado is educated with some college, mostly military training. He does not flaunt his knowledge. He teaches others without having to be asked.

Does your character scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

He adapts to his environment. He is used to military comforts. A bunk or tent, a lean-to, or on the ground.

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 as you like.

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

She never thought my religious background was important, but it is the only thing that makes me regret my life’s choices.

When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy?

That despite the circumstances, I am happy. Little goes right for me but that doesn’t keep me from loving life.

What do you wish your writer would write next?

The sequel. Continue my adventure.

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

You honor me by in telling my amazing journey. Muy gracias de me corazón. (Thank you very much from my heart.)

Where to buy Lights Out

This story will be released Sept 17, 2018

He can save mankind. After he does one important thing. Die.
Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You’ll live forever, they said. You’ll save mankind, they said. They didn’t say that to do it, first he had to die.
When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he’s assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.
He’s facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.
Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed “Lights Out.” No, there’s more to this than he can see.
To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time–somehow–find a way to keep himself alive…
Lights Out is in the Science Fiction/Space Opera anthology The Expanding Universe Vol 4, edited by Craig Martelle.
