A mysterious lady. An inquisitive gentleman. And a secret that could tear them apart.

Drum by September North

Mariah:
Isn’t the musician supposed to be the aggressive one? Not in this relationship. I wanted him. He wanted me. I never thought I would be the one leading the charge, but if I waited for Drum to try to hit a home run, I’d be graduating college not high school.
In one day, I changed the course of my senior year, my whole life. The more time I spent with him, the more I liked him.
He’s new. He’s different. His dad is a Marine. He’s a drummer. Yes, he is also in the marching band. No, I didn’t care, and neither did my competition. It wasn’t like I was the only one who noticed him, and jealousy was a real situation I had to learn to deal with.

Know the Heroine from The Understudy by LisabetSarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #Romance

Aspiring actress Sarah Gladstone falls under the spell of dominant leading man Geoffrey Hart in Lisabet Sarai’s new erotic romance The Understudy: Acts of Submission. Swept off her feet, she’s totally devoted to her master, but if the rumors are true, Geoff’s heart is taken.

Lisabet, 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 Understudy: Acts of Submission.

The Understudy: Acts of Submission by Lisabet Sarai

Genre Contemporary BDSM Erotic Romance

Heat level (based on movie ratings) X

When the Berks Hills Summer Playhouse offered me my first real acting job, I never expected to share a stage with theater legend Geoffrey Hart – let alone his bed. Nothing in my education or experience prepared me for the paradoxical pleasures of submission.

Now I’m devoted to my master, for better or worse. According to the rumors, though, Geoff’s heart is taken. Dumped by his long-time sub, he has escaped to the Berkshires to lick his emotional wounds. Geoffrey’s dark games arouse me beyond belief, but I fear I’m just a substitute for the real object of his affections. Am I willing to settle for the role of understudy in this perverse passion play?

Note: This book was previously published by Totally Bound. It has been revised, expanded and re-edited for this release.

Know the Heroine from The Understudy by LisabetSarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #Romance

Know the Heroine from The Understudy: Acts of Submission

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

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

Sarah Gladstone is not the type to be bored. She’s an over-achiever, always working to perfect her acting craft. If it were late, but she couldn’t sleep, she probably would be reviewing her lines for the next day’s performance. That is, unless Geoffrey Hart were down the hall in his room. Then she’d be fantasizing about him, trying to resist knocking on his door when he hadn’t summoned her.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

If she could get some trail mix – preferably organic – she’d be ecstatic. But she’s not picky about food. You can’t afford to be when you’re an actress.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Left to her own devices, she prefers to dress casually, in jeans and button-up shirts. However, Geoff has ordered her to wear only skirts or dresses – with no brassiere or underwear beneath.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s an only child, and her parents spoiled her, so she hasn’t really had the opportunity to learn how to fix things. However, she’s intelligent and independent, so she probably could figure it out.

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

Sarah’s hard on herself. For instance, at her first New York audition, the director changed the play he wanted her to read at the last minute. She’d spent hours studying up “The Importance of Being Ernest”, then got asked to read from “Salome”. Even without preparation, she didn’t do too badly, but she was a bit flustered and didn’t get the part. Instead of blaming the director, she blamed herself. Fortunately, she knows the acting business is tough, so she didn’t dwell on the situation, just resolved to do better next time.

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

Sarah loves kids. She always wanted a brother or sister, and was jealous of her friends from large families.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s a morning person, no question. Even when she’s spent half the night with her lover, she can be out of bed, showered and dressed in fifteen minutes. However, she definitely needs a decent breakfast, or she’ll get drowsy by mid-morning.

Can she use chopsticks?

She’s from New York. She was practically born using chopsticks!

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

Sarah drinks coffee in moderation, mostly in the morning She takes it black with a bit of sugar.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Her most often used apps include her ebook reading app, dictionary apps, and a Scrabble game. She also has a sketchpad/drawing app that she uses to relax.

Android or iPhone?

Android. Actually, her parents tried to buy her an iPhone, but she refused.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Sarah has pierced ears, but doesn’t always wear earrings. When she does, they tend to be inconspicuous, e.g. small gold hoops.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

She’d never consider a tattoo, since it might conflict with some character she had to play. However, if Geoffrey wanted to permanently mark her as his, she might agree. It’s a toss-up – despite her devotion to her master, her acting career is still incredibly important to her. Of course, Geoffrey will understand this, and not ask her to do anything that might interfere.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

As I mentioned earlier, Sarah grew up in New York City, so she’ll use public transport if it’s available. She does have a driver’s license, and will rent a car and drive if necessary.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Of course! Sarah would be annoyed that anyone even asked that question!

Know the Heroine from A Swan's Sweet Song by J Arlene Culiner @JArleneCuliner #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomanceThe instant country music star Sherry Valentine and playright Carston Hewlett meet, there’s desire and fascination in the air…but they’re complete opposites.

Arlene 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 A Swan’s Sweet Song

A Swan’s Sweet Song by J Arlene Culiner

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG16

The instant Sherry and Carston meet, there’s desire and fascination in the air…but they’re complete opposites. Smart-talking Sherry Valentine has fought her way up from poverty to stardom as a country music singer. Now, ever in the limelight, ever surrounded by clamoring fans, male admirers, and paparazzi, her spangled cowboy boots carry her from one brightly lit stage to the next. But Sherry’s been on the star circuit for far too long now, and she wants a change: is it too late for her to begin an acting career?

A renowned, but reclusive playwright, Carston Hewlett cherishes his freedom, the silence of the deep woods surrounding his home, and his solitary country walks. Long-term commitments have been out of the question for many years, so why is he suddenly fascinated by a flashy country music singer? Perhaps a very short, but passionate, fling will resolve the problem. When their names are linked in the scandal press, and Sherry’s plans to become an actress are revealed, Carston is furious. Is their budding relationship doomed?

Know the Heroine from A Swan’s Sweet Song

Sherry Valentine is the heroine of my romance, A Swan’s Sweet Song. She’s a tough, funny, mature country music singer who’s been on the road for just too long. She’s tired of screaming fans, the paparazzi, gossip magazines, and temporary relationships that never work out. For some crazy reason, she thinks that changing careers and becoming an actress, will be more satisfying — despite the warnings of Charlie Bacon, Sherry’s aggressive and pushy agent, who warns her she’s too old for starring roles in Hollywood.

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

Goes to bed with a good book and a glass of red wine.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Because Sherry’s manager, Charlie Bacon, insists that a music star is on stage all the time, she has to wear tight jeans, sparkling fringed shirts and cowboy boots. But cowboy boots make her toes ache, and she’s love to down dress in a simple elegant black dress.

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

She’s good with children and loves visiting them in sick children’s hospitals where she gets them to laugh and sing. However, she has never wanted any children of her own. She knows that she has no maternal instinct.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s warm, and lovely, and always fun. Even when she discovers she has to walk ten miles at the crack of dawn, she laughs and takes the ordeal in stride.

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

Coffee with milk and no sugar, and when Carston brings her coffee in bed, he wins her heart.

What apps would she have on her phone?

None. She hates having to be in touch with the world. A phone is for urgent work calls only.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Natural, unadorned skin. All she wants is her natural hair color and no makeup.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle, of course.
