Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance #WritingCommunity @BookClubPro1 Dee S Knight, 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.

Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Seriously ambitious man seeks woman to encourage his goals, support his (hopeful) position as Headmaster of Westover Academy, and be purer than Caesar’s wife. Good luck with that!
Daniel Goodman is a man on a mission. He aims to become headmaster of Westover Academy. For that he needs a particular, special woman to help him set high standards. Into his cut and dried life of moral and upright behavior, comes Eve Star, formerly one of Europe’s foremost exotic dancers. Her life is anything but cut and dried, black and white. Daniel is drawn to her like a kid to chocolate. Nothing good can come of this attraction. Or can it? He is after all, a good man.
What’s your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?
@GBPDaily
It’s not that I’m the world’s greatest Green Bay Packers fan, and by that I mean I don’t really know diddly about football in general, but I like Green Bay. I like that the fans own the team and how loyal they are. And we lived outside Green Bay for a while and I love the area. Actually, I am interested in most of the teams that represent the areas where (or near where) we’ve lived. So that includes Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, and Carolina Panthers. So see? My “fanship” is spread out quite a bit. There is one exception to the “root for the home team” rule, but I’m not saying what it is.
Describe the perfect vacation.
First and foremost, being with my honey. Doing anything and being anywhere is a vacation if we’re together. But it’s fun if we’re somewhere new, where there are things to see but comfortable places to return to, also. We’re of an age where an afternoon nap is fun, so we don’t go where the action is non-stop anymore. We like theatre and museums and such, not theme parks. Flying anywhere is too much hassle, so we tend to go places where we can drive. Old truckers never lose the driving bug!
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
I had a little stuffed monkey, light brown with a hard face. He was on a stretch of elastic and I dragged him around everywhere! My mom still has him.
What are your hobbies?
Reading is the best hobby of all! I used to do counted cross stitch and some crewel work, but then writing and working seemed to take up most of my time.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
I’ve collected travel magazines and points of interest brochures from places we’ve traveled over the years and use them for reference, along with maps. And of course, I use all kinds of sources on the Internet, including Wikipedia and travel sites. Since we traveled so much while trucking, I draw a lot on personal experience for locations, but for things like city size and street names and such, I go to their pages online.

Mack the Wife by Debby Conrad

Mackenzie O’Brien believes the only way her overprotective brothers will stay out of her life and find loves of their own is if she is married and settled. When an old love returns to town, Mackenzie is anxious to see if she and Grady Sullivan can pick up where they left off.
Grady tries to fight his attraction to Mackenzie. He wants nothing to do with the spoiled little rich girl who broke his heart years ago or her ridiculous marriage scheme. He’s a cop, living on a cop’s salary and she is way out of his league. And besides, her brothers hate him.
But Mackenzie won’t take no for an answer—until Grady suspects one or more of her brothers may be guilty of murder. Then she has no choice but to reconsider her plans. Because when it comes to family, the O’Briens stick together, even if it means giving up on love.

Seizing Hope by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticSuspenseSeelie Kay, 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.

Seizing Hope by Seelie Kay

Genre: Romantic suspense, contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Four flames
When four former law school classmates get kicked off the marriage train, they band together, put on their big girl panties, and fight back!
Former Northwestern Law School classmates Dina Willoughby, Miranda Mena, Leah Fraser, and Melody Harris are living the dream. Each had fantasized about the perfect husband while in law school and happily—for a time—that dream became a reality. Until Dina’s husband kicks her out two weeks before her prenuptial agreement kicks in, Miranda’s husband is arrested for securities fraud and flees the country with all of their money, Leah discovers that her royal husband misrepresented his feelings for her in order to get his hands on her money, and newly-pregnant Melody finally admits her artist husband is a sadistic, manipulative, jerk. Facing the loss of their husbands, and stripped of any financial support, the four women band together to fight back. Drawing on their unique legal skills and with the help of a few friends, including a hunky private investigator, a sexy law school professor, a determined cyber-security billionaire and the Queen of England, these four women not only take what’s theirs, they build the path to a new future, one filled with hope.
Why did you write this book?
I was asked to write a book about characters who were devastated by divorce, but picked themselves up and rebuilt their lives. I decided to write a story about how women are empowered when working together, drawing on each other’s strengths and bolstering each other’s weaknesses. I firmly believe that for every problem there is a solution and even at your darkest hour, if you can’t see it, someone who knows you well can. Multiple minds = effective solutions. These four former law school classmates had unique marriages and vastly different break-ups, yet they are all deserving of justice. Justice that sometimes, the courts alone cannot deliver.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love lawyer and detective fiction in the suspense genre, books like the Alex Cross series by James Patterson or J.D. Robb’s Dallas series. Obviously, I also enjoy romance, but I am starting to lean more toward paranormal stories—shifters, vampires, dragons. There’s just something about wolf shifters!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Lt. Eve Dallas, a homicide detective in the future, who is married to one hot and very rich Irishman!
What are you working on at the moment?
The third book in the Feisty Lawyers Series, “Cult.”
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to “Cult,” I am working on a new series about a lawyer who just happens to also be a vampire. Sometimes he uses his unique talents for good, other times, he uses them for his own selfish gains. He is a flawed man who has lived for hundreds of years, still searching for everlasting love.

Miss Elizabeth Bennet is my idol!
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve finished up the last of my St. Clairs and am hard at work on three novellas (where the St. Chairs will make appearances). I’m delighted to be writing the love story of one of Rachel St. Clairs’ suitors, the Earl of Merrifield. Poor Merrifield lost the girl to a marquess but kept Rachel and her new husband as friends. Now, Rachel is ready to find Merrifield a wife of his own!

Embracing the Earl (The St. Clairs Book 3) is a June 22 release. The three novellas will follow later in 2019.
