Interview with the author about the heroine.

Know the Heroine from Impatient Passion by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romance #contemporary #RomanceDee 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Impatient Passion by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
On a crowded San Francisco bus, Austin Gardner is pushed back against a man. Instead of inching away, he pulls her to him. Austin is shocked at first, but then lets fate take charge. An anonymous adventure on a crowded bus might be a safe diversion in the lonely, dull life she’s living.
Tyler Birch spent years waiting for Austin to welcome getting to know him better, but time is up. The same afternoon he decides to act, he finds himself pressed against her on the bus trip home. Not one to turn down an opportunity, Tyler accepts the chance to mount a two-pronged attack. One as the anonymous stranger who sets Austin on fire with his touch, and the other as Tyler, who speaks to her soul.
Austin’s desire flares for both men, ensuring trouble will follow. When the truth comes out, can she forgive Tyler? Or herself?

Know the Heroine from Impatient Passion

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
She pulls out her sketch pad and works on some ideas for graphic designs. She doesn’t care for websites with lots of garish colors or overly active graphics, preferring to represent client’s products with thoughtful images. It takes time, but it’s what she loves to do.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Austin lives with her hypochondriac mother who loves being doted on. Most nights Austin stops on the way home and picks up dinner, so most every meal is impulse. She likes Chinese and Mexican as a rule, but splurges on hamburgers.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Dumpy, loose and ill-fitting. She thinks they hide her body and her life—and to most people the ploy works. But not to Tyler who suspects there’s a real beauty under those too-big sweatshirts but who really doesn’t care. He’s already captured by the woman beneath the clothes.
Does she know how to fix things?
No. Not even herself. Until a strange and unusual opportunity presents itself. Then it’s all systems go!
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to follow her supervisor’s orders during a client presentation and was losing the client altogether. Before the client stormed out, she took a breath and presented her own idea. It took nerve she didn’t know she had but she saved the account.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She’s totally uncomfortable around small children, but somewhat older kids, like Tyler’s nephew, she enjoys. She encourages Robbie’s interest in art and web design and finds she has a friend and ally.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Sleepy, not ready to get up. But she has a job to get to and a bus ride to deal with. Turns out, a particular bus ride ends up changing her life!
Can she use chopsticks?
Absolutely! Can’t everyone?
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Yes. In fact, she drinks a lot of coffee! A working girl’s best friend!
What apps would she have on her phone?
Anything that would help her when she sets up her own business. For fun, Solitaire, which is also a sad commentary on her life before the infamous bus trip! She doesn’t need a business app when she’s working for Tyler, although she likes Evernote.
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Pierced. She doesn’t dress up much, though, or use much jewelry. That would bring too much attention to herself.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
She would almost rather die than be tattooed. For Austin, that’s a level of ostentatiousness hard to imagine.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
She doesn’t own a car, so always public transport.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle

Know the Heroine from Second Chances by Alana Lorens #RLFblog #romantic suspenseAlana Lorens, 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.

Second Chances by Alana Lorens

Genre romantic suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When Inessa Regan gets a pink slip, laid off from her law firm at the age of 42 without prospects, she’s sure her life is over. She hides from the world, until her neighbor brings her a client, a young Iraq war veteran dying of cancer.
Kurt Lowdon only wants to make sure his affairs are in order should the worst happen, but meeting Inessa gives him encouragement on the road to recovery. His quest to help her realize her self-worth leads them into dangers they never expected, as horrors from the war and long-hidden family secrets come back to haunt them.

Know the Heroine from Second Chances

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Inessa gets lonely at night. She’d dig out some Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey and chill with Netflix
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Definitely sweets. She’s an ice cream addict, but any chocolate or cookies would do in a pinch.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
She’s been a little overweight for years, so she prefers loose, light, comfortable clothing rather than the suits her law form required her to wear to court.
Does she know how to fix things?
Legally? She’s a family law attorney, so she knows how to fix a lot of people’s problems! Other people, that is. She’s not really great at dealing with her own problems—or anything tech-y.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Inessa noticed that the young woman living in the apartment over her rented office has many bruises and a subdued attitude. She knows that this woman is being battered, and she knows how she can help through legal remedies. But Inessa can’t keep her mouth shut over the indignity and smack-talks the abuser, trying to get him to back off. Unfortunately, it just escalates the situation.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She’s awkward. She’s never had children, and being a child for her was a nightmare, living with a single father who always skipped out on his bills. So she would likely have lollipops in the office to bribe them to behave.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
She hates waking up, but once she’s awake, she can’t lay in bed. She has to get up, get dressed and start doing things.
Can she use chopsticks?
Sure. One at a time. To stab sweet and sour chicken. And dumplings.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
There’s nothing better in life than a good cup of coffee with just the right amount of cream and sugar and flavoring.
What apps would she have on her phone?
Rewards programs, and probably an electronic wrist-type tracker which she’d keep resetting because she’d always forget to use it.
Android or iPhone?
Android. She’s not tech-savvy, and just buys something without many bells and whistles.
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Pierced ears, and usually wearing something tasteful. As she begins opening up a little, she uses brighter, danglier earrings to make herself feel pretty
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
No needles!!! No thank you!
Personal vehicle or public transport?
She has a car, several long years old. She doesn’t feel financially secure enough to buy a new one yet.
Recycle or toss?
All good girls recycle, don’t they?

Know the Heroine from Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Where do we start? She’s trying to organize this party, you see, and every little detail seems to keep spiraling out of control. She’s only got a week left, and still no venue, and then, there was this little thing of the train wreck on her father’s route…
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Stiff and quiet. She’s not really a child person.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Groggy, usually misses her father leaving early. But lately, she’s finding it hard to sleep so, has been getting up with the household staff, before dawn.
How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
Usually quiet and demure. If there are friends around, she prefers to sit and talk with them.
Maid or takes care of herself?
She has a maid but can take care of herself, if necessary.
Proper dress or casual clothes?
Proper dress.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Rolled up.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
Natural hair, usually braided.
Carriage or horseback?
Underground train, if you please! J It’s the newest, latest way to get from Wallflower to London and points beyond. (Plus, her father, and her beloved, run the subway station in Wallflower, so it’s almost required conveyance for Honorine.)

Know the Heroine from A Mermaid's Wish by Lyncee Shillard @lyncee #RLFblog #PNR #RomanticSuspenseLyncee Shillard, 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.

A Mermaid’s Wish by Lyncee Shillard

Genre paranormal romance suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Aislynn is a mermaid who has watched humans from afar for thousands of years. A negotiator for Neptune, she wonders, what it would be like to feel anything but especially passion the way humans do when they have sex. The truth is mermaids can’t feel emotions of any kind and hot sex is one of those experiences she wishes for. When the opportunity to become a human – temporarily – presents itself, she takes it.
Finley McCormock is a hard-core, tough as nails divorce attorney who represents rich women leaving their husbands. He has no time to do pro-bono environmental work like his colleagues or to fall in love himself. Why bother? He knows how marriages end. But, his new housekeeper, as odd as she is, gives him a hard on he has to take care of. The good news is Aislynn seems more than happy to oblige. She is his sexual fantasy come true, from the mid-day office visit that includes a spanking session to the trip to Trinker’s Sex Toys. Aislynn is willing to try anything.
But, when Aislynn’s past catches up with her, Finley will have to decide if his attraction for Aislynn goes further than the surface of the water. Does he really want to get in deep with his mermaid?

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Watch TV – in Atlantis there is no television. She’s sort of addicted to Chopped ;-)
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Doughnuts.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Actually, the one thing she doesn’t like about being human is wearing clothes
Does she know how to fix things?
Nope. She’s not even sure what some things are :-D
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Her goal is to experience all human emotions – mermaids are void of emotions – so she kisses a random stranger. It doesn’t go well. She tells him he isn’t good at kissing because wanted to moan and no moaning happened but thanks him for sharing the emotion of disappointment with her.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Goes for a swim.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
She’s about trying various kinds. While, Atlantis has coffee but just plain. She loves flavors especially hazelnut.

Know Cassandra Hudson from The Man of Her Dreams by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #PNR #mysteryDee 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

The Man of Her Dreams by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Cassandra Hudson has traveled across country to a small town in South Carolina to find a tall man with deep, blue eyes that she’s only met in her dreams. She’s desperate to solve a mystery that involves her husband who has been dead for over two years. Trouble is, her dream man wants to solve the mysteries of her body more than help her find a solution to her problem.
When Dan Morgan stops to help a beautiful woman on the side of the road outside his hometown, he doesn’t realize that she will drag him into the world of the paranormal in an effort to find out what happened to her husband and the half million dollars he was accused of stealing. What he does realize is the strong attraction he feels for her, despite his distrust of anything mystical. And the undeniable power she holds over him using her sexy body as a lure.
Love will make it both easier and harder for them to find the answers they need.

Know the Heroine from The Man of Her Dreams

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Cassandra’s profession is creative and artistic—she is a renowned painter and fabric artist. She’s rarely bored because her mind is always teeming with ideas of what to do next. But she loves reading so when boredom does strike, she can pick up a good book. During the day, she would take a walk—she lives in beautiful San Francisco so walking refreshes the mind as well as inspired new ideas.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Pie. She loves a well-made pie and she indulges in peach pie on her first night in South Carolina.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Loose, comfortable. When she’s working she needs to be able to move freely, so nothing tight or restrictive.
Does she know how to fix things?
Not really. She can change a lightbulb. As a widow she doesn’t have a man around to “fix” things. But her best friend lives next door and her husband is willing and happy to help with things Cassandra can’t handle.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to persuade Dan Morgan to help her solve the mystery of her dreams. She’s been dreaming about Dan—a man she doesn’t know—for months. She knows he’s at the heart of why and how her husband died. But… Dan is a former policeman and a realist. He has no use for psychics or mumbo jumbo. She approached him in the worst way and ensured that he wouldn’t help.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Cassandra loves children but she isn’t around them very much. She stands back and takes time to know them. She’s not one of those women who steps forward to hold the new baby first.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Cassandra has a very even temperament. She wakes up easily and doesn’t get off kilter often.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
Fame and the accompanying fortune is nice but it’s not what motivates her. Therefore, she is very down to earth and easy to be with and talk to. With Dan she might be a little too nice and accommodating, but that is something she has to figure out for herself.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Sure. She’s not a control freak. But she does have pretty exacting standards, so that doesn’t mean that she won’t examine the task, whatever it is, when it’s finished.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Pierced earrings. She uses accessories when she dresses to go out but not on a daily basis.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
In San Francisco, public transport whenever possible. But she drove her car across country in her search for the man of her dreams!
Recycle or toss?
Recycle, definitely! It’s for the good of the planet, and why waste things that can be reused?

Know the Heroine from The Ebb by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss #RLFblog #romanceEffrosyni Moschoudi, 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.

The Ebb by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre Romance with a paranormal twist
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
When Sofia falls in love, a mourning spirit begins to haunt her…
CORFU, 1987
On a long holiday with her grandparents, Sofia Aspioti meets Danny Markson, a charming flirt who makes her laugh. Although she tries to keep him at arm’s length, worried that village gossip will get back to her strict family, she falls desperately in love. That’s when strange dreams about Brighton’s West Pier and a woman dressed in black begin to haunt her. Who is this grieving woman? And how is her lament related to Sofia’s feelings for Danny?
BRIGHTON, 1937
Dreaming of wealth and happiness, Laura Mayfield arrives in Brighton to pursue a new life. She falls for Christian Searle, a happy-go-lucky stagehand at the West Pier theatre, but when she’s offered a chance to perform there, her love for him is put to the test. Charles Willard, a wealthy aristocrat, is fascinated by her and pursues her relentlessly. Will Laura choose love…or money?

“Ms. Moschoudi is proving to be a skilled storyteller who takes her readers on a wonderful ride.”
~David M. Wind, author of Queen of Knights

“Reading Ms Moschoudi’s work is like visiting a friend. You are so wrapped up in the story that you don’t want it to end!”
~Julie Blaskie, Amazon reviewer

“I could feel the warm sun and sandy beaches even on a cold dreary day.”
~Helen Johnson Brumbaugh, Amazon reviewer

The Ebb is a feel good, summer holiday romance. Even though it’s the first book in a series, it has a satisfactory ending and can be enjoyed as a standalone read.

Know the Heroine from The Ebb

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Sofia loves to daydream or to write poetry so she’s likely to do one of the two. Or even both.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
A cheese pastry. It’s one of the most popular go-to snacks for students in Athens such as herself.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
She works on a sports pier on the beach in Corfu during the summer so wears her swimsuit all day long. In the evenings, she wears shorts or mini skirts and flimsy cotton t-shirts as it’s too hot and humid to wear anything else.
Does she know how to fix things?
Goodness, no! These things are done only by men in her Greek world of the 1980s…
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
When things go bad, Sofia tends to get upset and cry. Not because she’s weak but because she’s grown too fed up to handle her inner misery by now. Her parents are overprotective, and her father, especially, is very strict and expects her to be perfect in every way. The last time she got in trouble with her dad was when she had some fun going out for a drink with her cousins but neglected to drop by her uncle Yannis’s restaurant on her way home like she was supposed to. In her defense, though, Uncle Yannis gives her the creeps…
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Sofia is sweet and gentle with children. Her mother and grandmother are both affectionate, nurturing women who show her love generously, so she acts the same towards the young ones. Sofia actually likes the shy children the most, as they remind her of her at that age. She loves to make them laugh.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Sofia stretches like a cat and yawns a lot in bed, snoozing for a good while before getting up. She dresses quickly in casual attire and after a cup of tea and some buttered toast she’s ready to face the day. When she rushes to catch the bus to Athens for her studies, she often skips breakfast and grabs a cheese pastry on her way to University.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
Sofia acts nonchalant with everyone, and has become masterful over time at hiding her true feelings and wishes. She has many secrets because she was raised by overprotective parents and is plagued by village gossip in Corfu as well where she spends her summer holidays with her grandparents. The only person who knows all her secrets is her best friend Loula. Together, they visited a clairvoyant who told Sofia that Danny, the English tourist she’s fallen for, is someone she loved in a previous life. She also helped her make some sense of the grieving woman that haunts her dreams, dictating poems to her.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Sofia doesn’t hire workers and lets her parents or grandparents deal with these things. She never does this sort of thing as everyone still treats her like a minor despite her being twenty years old. Even when she tries to get a job for the first time (in a sports pier in Corfu during the summer of 1987), she has to get her father’s permission first!
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Pierced earrings are okay. Sofia got her ears pierced as a teen which is very common in Greece and was deemed acceptable by her family. Anything else would be unheard of. Her family would have a fit, but she wouldn’t want to have any tattoos or piercings anyway. In her world, that’s a very uncommon thing to see.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Sofia doesn’t have a driver’s license so she takes buses to visit the Athens university. For her annual visit to the island of Corfu, she takes a coach, then a ferry across from the mainland.
Recycle or toss?
Recycling isn’t a widespread practice in the 1980s in Greece. So, the only recycling Sofia does is that of printed paper. She uses the blank side for noting stuff down. Oh. And she donates her old clothes to the local church or to poor families in her neighborhood.
