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.

The Woman Behind the Mirror by Jan Selbourne

Genre Historical Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marry in haste, repent at leisure is the last thing on Sarah Forsythe’s mind when she and the son of a local minister elope to the American colonies. She wasn’t to know abandonment, misery, poverty and shame would follow. As the colonies rebel against British rule and the siege of Boston worsens, alone and afraid, Sarah hides her desperation behind a hard shell. To survive, she is forced to steal from her employer. Instead of the cash she needs, she finds Bank of England documents. Sensing they might have some value, Sarah protects them through months of deprivation until she finally secures passage home to England. Unknown to her, two men are following, intent on claiming those documents. At any price.

Bank of England fraud investigator Neil McAllister faces the biggest challenge of his career when a woman from Boston demands a reward for returning lost documents to the bank. Then two men with the same name and nearly identical stories arrive in England, each claiming ownership of them. Who is lying? Or are all three accomplices in a plot to swindle the bank? As the obstinate, secretive woman gets under Neil’s skin, he trusts that she was an unwitting witness to the crime of cold-blooded betrayal and treason before the fall of Boston. Now it’s up to Neil to protect Sarah because the traitor wants her dead.

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

Sarah has little patience. She’s pacing the floor and thinking of something she should be doing.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

She loves venison pies – a real treat in the 18th century

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Sarah suffered years of deprivation in the American colonies. She’s used to counting every penny but still loves green gowns and matching combs in her hair.

Does she know how to fix things?

Yes, survival is a great teacher. She’s broken into buildings searching for anything of value, narrowly escaped capture and learned the hard way to be self-sufficient. Her pride stops her asking for help.

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

Demanding a reward for these valuable documents set off alarm bells at the Bank of England but Sarah wouldn’t budge. Unknown to her, a man recently arrived from Boston has convinced bank fraud investigator Neil McAlister, that he is the owner of this account. Grateful for their safe return he insists on paying the reward to Sarah in person. In front of her family and Neil McAlister, he exposes her shameful life in Boston – keeping men happy in a gambling club.

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

She can be very impatient and that’s because life has taught her ‘don’t trust anyone’. To do so will bring hurt and humiliation. It’s not until bank investigator Neil McAlister wins her trust that she learns to love again.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Since running away her life has been extremely difficult. She’s wary and careful and very alert.

How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?

Very well, she was brought up in a privileged home and taught all the social niceties.

Maid or takes care of herself?

Life in the colonies taught her to take care of herself, a maid is sheer luxury.

Proper dress or casual clothes?

Proper dress even if it’s somewhat shabby.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

Buttoned.

Powdered wig or natural hair?

Natural black hair

Carriage or horseback?

Carriage.

Know the Heroine: Hafsah Brooks from Open to Love by Lyndell Williams @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #Interracial RomanceLyndell Williams, 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 Open to Love.

Open to Love by Lyndell Williams

Genre Interracial Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

The last thing Hafsah wants is to get wrapped up in another marriage, let alone with a younger man. Despite the desire he reawakens in her, she is not going to fall into another trap. Faheem is undisturbed by the age difference and undeterred by her doubts. He feels the passion surging between then and is determined to get her to open to love.

Know the Heroine from Open to Love

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

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

Talking to her girlfriends Tariqa and Rahma chases away any boredom from Hafsah. They met in Islamic school, and have been besties ever since. If they aren’t teasing each other, they share their hopes and dreams.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Hafsah’s mother nagged her about her insatiable sweet tooth since she was little. She can’t resist and must have sugar when life gets hectic or taxing. She knows it’s not the healthiest thing to do, but when things become stressful, a cookie or cupcake hits the spot and keeps her from flying off the handle.

When her marriage was falling apart, Hafsah’s clothes got tighter from months of slamming down snack cakes. She popped one after the other in her mouth as she looked for a job. When she couldn’t fit her favorite skirt, she knew it was time to get out of the house and walk off some pounds while she could still fit through the door.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Hafsah is a Muslim woman who covers her head, so she has a ton of hijabs of different colors and patterns. Not one to leave the house shabby, she has a closet and drawer packed with hip modest fashion. She is tall and has to get ankle-length a-line or box pleated skirts custom made to drape over her long legs, which she finishes off with long-sleeve blouses. After strapping on a pair of MK shoes and slinging an LV handbag over her shoulder, she sashays her way into the world.

She reserves more revealing clothes like tight jeans with camisoles or shorts and tank tops to strut around the house, cleaning, cooking or just hanging out. She finds it funny when people ask her if she wears a hijab at home. Some have even asked if she showers in it!

Does she know how to fix things?

Hafsah does have the ability to get somethings up and running. If it can be repaired with tape, glue, a hammer or screwdriver, then she is your gal. Growing up, she watched and learned from her mother how to unclog drains, spackle holes in the wall and get any most of the small appliances in the house beeping, whirring and humming again.

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

As corny as it seemed to many of her friends, Hafsah always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sure, she made sure to get a college degree to be marketable and take care of herself, but settling in to take care of hearth and home was important for her.

Unlike her best friend, Tariqa, who had sworn off men, Hafsah maintained an open mind when courted by the Muslim brothers in her community. Unfortunately, nothing worked out. Years went by, and no one swept her off her feet, until Mahmoud. He was smart, sexy and smooth enough for her to accept being his second wife.

Polygny was not an alien thing in her community. She had plenty of friends who were cowives. Mahmoud had more than enough money to keep her and his first wife comfortable, and since she had fallen for him hard, she decided that she could accept plural marriage. Big mistake.

Hafsah was not prepared for the change in the way some women in the community treated her for “settling” to be wife number two. Mahmoud’s family was no help. They denied her existence, straining their usually steamy and happy relationship.

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

Hafsah loves kids, not babies, kids. Babies scare her. She is always afraid that if she holds one, she’ll do something wrong and hurt it. They are so small and frail.

When she was around seven, one of the sisters in the community visited with her newborn. She asked and the mother let her hold the tiny bundle. All she wanted to do was see the tiny feet hidden inside. She unraveled the blanket, and the baby’s arms and legs flailed out, startling her. She jumped up, dropping baby and blanket. Fortunately, mother caught the little one.

Ever since that day, Hafsah has lots of fun with kids, and coo at babies from a safe distance.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Hafsah rises every morning before dawn for prayer. It’s not always easy. Winter days on Long Island, NY can be cold and prickly, making her want to stay between her toasty blankets. She finds solace in making a spiritual connection with her creator, so she fights the urge to be comfy.

Can she use chopsticks?

Hafsah’s friend Simon had taught her to use them when they were teenagers. He lived near her aunt’s house in Queens. When she visited, she would go to his house to grub down on his mom’s cooking. She loved it, but hasn’t used them since he left for law school.

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

Coffee is fine for Hafsah, but she prefers to carry around and sip water most days. When she does drink coffee, she avoids high-priced coffee chains with more milk and sugar than actual coffee. She will grab a cup at one of the small mom-and-pop cafes peppered along Montauk Highway, have a seat and sip while sliding her thumb across her cell phone.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Hafsah’s phone has the mandatory social media apps—Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Pinterest is one of her favorites. She likes to look at cooking and decorating ideas.

Android or iPhone?

Hafsah had an iPhone, but every time she turned around, it was out of memory. She switched to Androids and never looked back.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Hafsah’s mother pierced her ears when she was a baby. She loves wearing gold bangles, draping her hijab so they swing from her ears.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Most Muslims in Hafsah’s community frown on tattoos. She has seen a few of her more rebellious friends with them. She went with one of them to the parlor. After seeing her friend wincing under the needle, she was not inclined to ever get one.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

It is almost impossible to get anywhere on Long Island without a car. Hafsah bought her first one when she was seventeen. She worked summers and saved her money for three years. It was old and ran on a prayer, but it was hers. Mahmoud gave her a new luxury car as a wedding gift, but nothing will purge the love for her hooptie.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Get to know Jermanah from Double Moon Destiny by *lizzie starr @lizziestarr #RLFblog #fantasyromance*lizzie starr, 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.

Double Moon Destiny by *lizzie starr

Genre Fantasy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

On the night of the Double Moon a child is born, and the destinies of an acolyte and a rebel are changed forever.

Jermanah, acolyte of the religious Compound, has never been given the opportunity to make her own choices. Although she accepts her way of life and yearns to rise higher in the order, she learns ancient, forbidden healing from the Seer. On the night of the

Double Moons, a child is born and given into Jermanah’s care until the boy is taken to the king.

Kierigh was born moments before the rising of the Double Moons, but his twin brother wasn’t so lucky. Rumors flow from the Stronghold—following an ancient prophecy, the king sacrifices the baby boys to increase his power. But Kierigh senses that even after five cycles, his brother still lives.

When Kierigh’s rebels attack the procession, he takes the babe, and Jermanah, to his hidden camp. The captivating acolyte disrupts Kierigh’s ordered and simple life. He opposes her religion and all the Compound claims to stand for. She’s everything he doesn’t need in his life. Yet she is everything he desires.

No longer considering herself one of the Compound, Jermanah discovers freedom, and truths she finds difficult to believe. But when the babe is taken from the forest, she will do anything to save the child, including face the leader of the Compound—and the king.

Can a rebel and an acolyte set aside pride and differences to find a lost brother, defeat evil, and discover their prophecy fulfilling destinies?

Know the Heroine from Double Moon Destiny

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

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

As an acolyte of the Compound, Jermanah has many duties set before her, leaving her little time to herself. But in those rare moments when she’s not following the priestess’ orders, or illicitly studying healing with the Seer she loves to practice the dances that are a part of the rituals of the Compound. So, even in her so-called free time, she’s still trying to perfect her life.

 

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Life in the Compound is strict, and since she’s been a part of that world since her birth, Jermanah has no concept of being able to buy more than she’s given. Once she leaves the Compound and discovers there is such a thing as freedom of choice, she still marvels at the options. Even simple meats and cheeses in a loaf of fresh bread is amazing to her. Once she discovers sweets, that would be what she’d buy–from honey on bread to a sugary confection.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Within the Compound, Jermanah had no choice of clothing. She wore the scratchy, hot robes of an acolyte. When she’s taken to the hero’s camp deep in the forest, she’s given a soft tunic and trousers. These are what she loves to wear. Beside the comfort of the smooth materials, this clothing allows her a new freedom. But she doesn’t accept the soft-soled shoes. She’s never worn shoes, and sees no reason to start.

Does she know how to fix things?

Jermanah is a born mystical healer, so she is able to fix people. As she follows her destiny, she discovers she is able to heal or fix certain situations. But if she had to fix a broken tool she would be lost. Unless there was a book to tell her how, then perhaps…

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

Even though she tries to be a proper acolyte and follow the strictures of the Compound, there’s a bit of a rebel in Jermanah. Acolytes are not allowed contact with the Seer, but the old man sensed her healing abilities and sought her out for training. She knows this new knowledge, and her abilities must be kept hidden, for mystical healing is also forbidden to any but the Seer. But somehow, the HIghest of the High learns of her skills and calls upon them during the birth of the next child of the double moons. Following the Highest’s orders, Jermanah attempts to ease the pregnant woman who refuses to allow her child to be born into the hands of the Compound. Instead of offering comfort and discovering the joy of a new life, Jermanah is forced to witness violence and death. Her healing failed.

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

As an acolyte, Jermanah had little contact with the younger girls in the Compound. When she’s given the newborn child to care for, she panics, but soon discovers the caring and compassionate part of her healing talents and relaxes. As she grows comfortable in her life outside the Compound, she’s kind and interested in the children, drawing them out and making each feel special.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Days in the Compound started before dawn, so she is alert and active first thing in the morning. She’s ready to start her day. Unless for some reason she’s allowed to sleep later. Then she becomes flustered and irritated–feeling as though she’s failed.

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

Once released from the strict confines of the Compound, Jermanah is hesitant around people. She discovers there is a deep distrust bordering on hatred toward both the Compound and the king’s Stronghold. As a known acolyte, she is scorned by some in the rebel camp, and whispers and comments follow her when she passes them. She withdraws and attempts to keep to herself. But once others come to know her, she is open and friendly.

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

Her tendency is to handle things herself. She’s uncomfortable asking others to do anything for her.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Adornment was forbidden in the Compound, so no.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

The world of the double moons has little technology. Transportation is by foot or wagon. Soldiers ride great war beasts. Although she is carried on one of these beasts for a short while, and offered a place on a wagon, she prefers to have her bare feet solidly on the ground.

Recycle or toss?

Definitely recycle. There aren’t enough resources to waste items no longer in use. Even stones used in building are reused.

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!
