Interviews with authors

Read the new Hometown Girl, a sweet novella by Cheryl St.John @_cherylstjohn_ #RLFblog #Contemporary #RomanceRodeo champion Justin Cooper’s reappearance reminds Stevie Marshall of how her life could have been in this sweet contemporary novella by USA Today bestselling author, Cheryl St.John. It is worth the risk of losing him again to capture a few weeks of happiness?

Cheryl, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Hometown Girl by Cheryl St.John

Genre contemporary romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): sweet (G)

Small-town life was never enough for rodeo champion, Justin Cooper, but when he returns to Oklahoma to recover from an injury, Stevie Marshall is still rooted to the community, still doesn’t share his passion for adventure and still takes his breath away.

Resistant to change, Stevie has never fallen in love with another, and she’s not about to fall for this handsome cowboy all over again. Her heart has taken too much of a beating to make the same mistake twice. This life wasn’t good enough for him last time.

Justin thought he’d rather fall off a bucking bull than face his feelings, but their close proximity challenges his thinking. Prize money and belt buckles won’t stack up to a life with the hometown girl he loves. This go-round the cowboy will hang on tight.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

My Barbies were my favorite toys, and I played with them until I was twelve years old. Barbie, Ken and Midge were a family, and they even had children. I saved up my allowance to buy them clothes and furniture. When my cousin came from out of town, she brought her dolls, and we covered my grandma’s entire bedroom with their rooms and played out adventures.

I still collect Barbies, Disney characters and other fashion-size dolls, in fact I recently thinned out the curio in my office, dressed them properly, fixed their hair and placed them on stands where I enjoy seeing them.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy reading, of course. I’ve always loved antique and flea-market shopping. I enjoy painting and decorating, and my husband and I upcycle furniture. We both shop for the pieces, I choose and buy the paint, etc., and he does the work. We recently traveled 200 miles of garage and yard sales in Nebraska with my daughter and son-in-law. Now that’s fun!

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

I fall back on Americana or western historicals, which are among my favorites, but I also enjoy westerns, Stephen King, biographies and research books.

What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?

I’ve read a good many journals over the years, research papers, books on whatever subject I’m writing about.

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

I create a playlist for each of my books, so I had to choose only one:

Read the series: Bovine Tricks by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseTake two MI6 agents, a royal gone Hucow, and terrorists intent on destroying the Monarchy, and you’ve got Bovine Tricks, a tale of romantic suspense by Seelie Kay. It’s the first book in her Royals Gone Rogue series!

Seelie, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your series.

Bovine Tricks in the Royals Gone Rogue series

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Lady Annabelle Trask is missing. Unfortunately, MISix doesn’t know if they’re looking for a woman, a cow, or something in between!

Is it real or is it fantasy? That’s the question MISix Agent Mathilda Honoria Spencer struggles with on her latest assignment. Tasked with discovering the whereabouts of Lady Annabelle Trask, Tillie is thrust into the world of Hucows and other human animals. It’s a world that raises serious questions about sexual fetishes, intentional physical enhancements, and even pornography, but in the end, Tillie has only one mission—to rescue and return Lady Annabelle to the Queen. However, as she and her partner, Agent Abdul Ali, attempt to find Lady Annabelle and keep her out of the clutches of terrorists bent on destroying the monarchy, they must also wrestle with their feelings for each other. Can they draw the line between their duty to the Crown and their relationship with one another? Or must they embark on separate paths to continue to serve the Queen?

Which book is this in the series?

This is the first book in the Royals Gone Rogue series.

How many books do you plan for the series?

It pretty much depends on when the ideas run out, but most of my series are five books and I hope to stick to that.

How many books are completed?

One and a half!

What characters are the main stars in your series?

MI6 agent Tillie Spencer is the lead in the series. Tillie serves at the behest of the Queen, who sends her in pursuit of royals gone rogue. Her partner and lover, MI6 agent Abdul Ali, is an Arab prince “molded” in British boarding schools.

What is the overall theme in this series?

There are several. First, even a known screwup (Tillie) can succeed. Second, there is value in serving your country (and the Queen). Third, the heart wants what the heart wants, no matter the differences in culture, expectations, and life goals. Don’t fight it. Embrace it.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Bovine Delights, Book One

What did you like best about writing this series?

I wanted the opportunity to explore Tillie Spencer and her life as a MI6 agent. She was a minor character in my Feisty Lawyers series, primarily as a foil to the main characters, members of The Agency. She interfered with a few of their missions and as a result, was forced to provide assistance to them when requested. In the last book of the Feisty Lawyers series, Martimus, she was sent to the bottom of the ocean as volunteer inmate in sea colony. In this series, it’s her chance to shine.

Pick up cool tips from Lyncee Shillard author of Taking A Risk by @lyncee #RLFblog #Romance #Adventure

In Lyncee Shillard’s romance adventure, Taking a Risk, Leigh books an extreme vacation to the Amazon. Kayaking down the Amazon is the easy part. Avoiding gun toting drug smugglers and keeping her feeling contained is the real test of endurance.

Lyncee, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Thanks for sharing two tips with us today, but first, please tell us about Taking A Risk.

Taking A Risk by Lyncee Shillard

Genre Romance Adventure

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Nic was handsome in a harsh rugged way with a body anyone else could only achieve through photoshop, and he lived in a jungle. Leigh smiled. Nothing practical or routine about him. She’d show Rayna and David. Not only was she going on an adventure, but she was going to screw Tarzan.

If there was one thing she excelled at, it was setting a goal, making a plan, and then following it making adjustment as she went until the objective was reached. Overachievement was her middle name. Granted, she’d never set the goal to have random sex with a Tarzan, but it didn’t matter, a goal was a goal.

Two Tips for Writing

#1 Know your villain and then create a hero/heroine that is equal. Many writers find creating the villain much more interesting than the hero/heroine. I mean there are very few rules when it comes to bad guy creation. That freedom is like discovering calorie sugar free doughnuts! Its hard to know when to stop.

#2 No one will write like you. Your story is yours and you must tell it the way it speaks to you. You will not have same writing routines as anyone else. Writing is a total individual thing. Be that individual!

Two Tips for Family

#1 Make the moments count. They don’t have to be long or a big production. Spend some time once a month putting together a ‘moment bag.’ What goes inside will vary depending on your child’s age and interest. Some ideas: – small coloring pages with a few crayons that you can color together – simple puzzle – a few Legos (challenge who can use all of theirs in a the time permitted) – a poem – then discuss – invent a dessert to make later (pick up the ingredients next time you go to the store) The idea is to talk, to share, to laugh, and make a moment.

#2 Create a family holiday. Celebrate your family! Select one day of the year and make ‘Your Name Family Day’. Eat your favorite foods, play your favorite games, watch movies or put together puzzles. Have everyone share one of their best memory of the last year. Decorate your house in traditional party style. Make a picture board of the last year. Do whatever feels right for your family – remember the purpose of this is celebrate your family!

I live in the cold Northern Michigan (the place of four seasons – they lie! It’s just different levels of winter) with my husband. Our children have begun their own adventures, and just as I got into the swing of empty nest, then my grandson came to live with us. Now I’m doing 7 again… they argue everything just case you forgot. And I now remember why I eat doughnuts. When I’m not hanging out with the 7-year-old, I’m writing, reading, crocheting, and making self-care products. I also enjoy taking pictures, I’m not claiming to have a talent it’s just something I like to do.

Read the series: Cold Rage by Ann Raina #RLFblog #Thriller #RomanticSuspenseIn Ann Raina’s latest book in the series with Nick and Jacklyn, Richmond’s Deputy Mayor Dobson is brutally murdered. The FBI investigation reveals that this case isn’t the only one in which an abusive husband died of unnatural causes, but will the agents be clever enough to uncover the truth before the next murder happens?

Ann, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your series.

Cold Rage in the Nick and Jacklyn series

Genre: Crime / thriller / erotic romance / BDSM

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Even the best intentions have a blind side.

In Richmond, Virginia, Deputy Mayor Dobson is brutally murdered. The FBI investigation reveals that this case isn’t the only one in which an abusive husband died of unnatural causes. Special Agent Nicolas Hayes and his team begin the investigation but soon reach a dead end. There is no evidence and no suspect. When an old enemy appears on the scene, the investigation comes to a standstill, and Nicolas finds himself in mortal danger.

Which book is this in the series?

This is the fifth book in the series.

How many books do you plan for the series?

As long as the ideas keep coming, I would like to continue writing because I’ve come to love the main characters. Book six – Barred Doors – will be published this spring, and I’m currently working on number nine.

How many books are completed?

I’ve written eight books so far.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Nicolas Hayes is the FBI agent in charge of the investigations, a man true to his words, strong and resilient in his job. He loves his girlfriend, Jacklyn, dearly. And while he’s an independent character on the job, he’s her submissive in the bedroom. As you can imagine, Jacklyn’s a strong woman who knows what she wants.

What is the overall theme in this series?

Nicolas and his partner, Jason Beckham, are working at the FBI, investigating major crimes, such as serial killers and bank robbers. The side stories deal with the private lives of both agents.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

The books build on each other though every novel can be read as a stand-alone.
Twisted Mind
Famous Murders
Blind Trust
Chosen Brothers
Cold Rage

What did you like best about writing this series?

When you plan to write more than one novel with the same main characters, you have time and space to develop the characters. You have time to let them grow and change. For example, in the first book, Nicolas comes to know Jacklyn and doesn’t know that she’s a mistress. He doesn’t know anything about bondage games. He’s hesitant at first, but she convinces him slowly and with his consent, that this kind of love making can be truly fulfilling. In the second book, they spent a lovely weekend together, and she introduces him to a range of bondage games that leave him breathless in every kind of the meaning.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

I wrote another series years ago dealing with a bodyguard of the Secret Service, Ethan Mahoney, and his wife, Jazmin. I also wrote several Science Fiction books, for example a trilogy named Living for the Act, in which women have taken over the government on a planet and try to reconstruct a society that is torn by war and the loss of fertile men.
