Destiny’s Secrets by Kara O’Neal

Genre Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Andrew and Ben Lonnigan, brothers and private investigators, have accepted an important case—to reunite the long-lost DuBois daughters with their rightful inheritance. Abducted from their childhood home in New Orleans when they were three and two-years-old, Jo and Charlotte were adopted by separate families.
Andrew heads north to find Josephine Tatum—a pants-wearing, spitfire veterinarian who challenges his mind and captures his heart. Ben travels south to find Charlotte Ryan—the financial mind behind her father’s ranch, with a sweet disposition and, unfortunately, a fiancé.
As the sisters journey toward destiny, Charlotte must guard her heart against Ben, a man too daring to ever return her love. And Andrew must hide his feelings from Jo, a woman determined to carve her own path. While the foursome battle feelings, they must also war with a villain from the sisters’ past, one with the will and the means to destroy everything the DuBois daughters hold dear

Hot-Tempered Hannah by Jo Grafford @JoGrafford #RLFblog Western #Historical RomanceJo Grafford, 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.

Hot-Tempered Hannah by Jo Grafford

Genre: Sweet western historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
Gabe Donovan, notorious bounty hunter, is busy trying to outride an Arizona-sized hole in his heart, when the director of the Gallant Rescue Society offers him the chance to redeem his tortured soul by tracking a missing mail order bride. He can hardly believe the ghost who’s been haunting his memories is a dead ringer for the missing bride in the photograph.
Either the woman he’s never stopped loving has a twin, or she did a bloody good job of faking her own death and crushing his hopes of any kind of future together. There’s only one way to find out — track down the hot-tempered beauty and haul her back to Headstone for questioning!

Know the Hero from Hot-Tempered Hannah

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Heads to the nearest Inn for a home-cooked meal and a few hours of sleep. He doesn’t loiter on the streets at night unless he’s on the job and never stays in any one town too long. He’s helped put too many criminals behind bars, and a few of them have partners looking for revenge.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Anything cooked fresh — preferably by a woman. He’s had to fend for himself out on the trail most of his adult life, so a hot meal is always a treat.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Chaps and boots, a holster with two guns for quick draws, a knife strapped at his ankle, a wide-brimmed Stetson pulled low over his eyes to protect him from the sun (and make it harder for those he’s hunting down to identify him until it’s too late).
Does he know how to fix things?
If he doesn’t know how to fix it, he can figure it out. Living on the road has forced him to depend on no-one but himself.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
He took a partner about a year ago against his better judgment. He always worked alone before her, but she more or less taunted him into it. She’s a successful bounty hunter like himself — known throughout the West as Hot-Tempered Hannah. They took on one dangerous job after another and put a bunch of no-good horse thieves and bank robbers behind bars together. Until that one fateful job where he didn’t make it to their rendezvous point in time…where the men he and Hannah were hunting managed to trap her inside a old mine shaft and set it afire. He’s been stumbling around in a daze ever since her death, unable to forgive himself for not being there when she needed him the most.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
Clear minded and cold calculating, like he is all hours of the day.
How does he handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
Like a perfect gentleman. It’s the one secret he’s never shared with anyone, not even his partner Hannah while she was alive. He was raised by a wealthy attorney back East and owns a hefty trust fund that he never uses. He’s spent the last few years working by the sweat of his brow, making his own fate, and hopefully leaving the world a better place for it.
Valet or takes care of himself?
Takes care of himself
Necktie/cravat or open shirt?
Necktie for nice occasions (which are rare) and kerchief to protect him from the sand and sun.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Buttoned to protect him from the sand, sun, and rattlesnakes.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
All natural, sun-streaked, and usually hidden beneath a Stetson.
Carriage or horseback?
Horseback for chasing down criminals and making quicker get-aways.

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.

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.

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.

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!
