Fated Hearts, A Love After All Retelling of the Scottish Play by Alina K Field

Genre: Regency Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Plagued by hellish memories and rattling visions of battle to come, a Scottish Baron returning from two decades at war meets the daughter he denied was his, and the wife he divorced, and learns that everything he’d believed to be true was a lie. What he can’t deny is that she’s the only woman he’s ever loved. They’re not the young lovers they once were, but when passion flares, it burns more hotly than ever it did in their youth.

They soon discover, it wasn’t fate that drove them apart, but a jealous enemy, who played on his youthful arrogance and her vulnerability. Now that old enemy has resurfaced, more treacherous than ever. When his lady falls into a trap, can he reach her in time to rescue this love that never died?

Why did you write this book?

Fated Hearts is part of the Tragic Characters in Classic Lit project, wherein a group of Regency romance authors are taking tragic characters and with complete artistic license, setting them in Georgian era England and giving them a happily-ever-after. I couldn’t resist the challenge of retelling Macbeth’s story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Historical romance, and historical mystery

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Rupert Carsington, from Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible

What are you working on at the moment?

A Christmas novella for 2021 release.

Lily, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Ghosts in the Snow (Curse of Christmas boxed set).

Ghosts in the Snow (Curse of Christmas boxed set) by Lily Luchesi

Genre paranormal ghost story

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Welcome to the most magical season of all, when hearts are happy…and sometimes devoured. Join these New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling authors for winter holiday stories of vampires, shapeshifters, witches, and more!

Why did you write this book?

When I was asked to join Curse of Christmas, my first instinct was to write a prequel to my main series, The Paranormal Detectives. I always wanted to write a Victorian gothic romance, and I was able to do that with Ghosts in the Snow.

Veronica and Vincent Cross want to have a joyful first Christmas as a married couple, but when the spirits who guard the house threaten to kill them both, it’s a race against the clock to banish the spirits before Christmas Eve.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Horror, followed by urban fantasy.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s like asking me to pick a favorite cookie or song. Jane Eyre, Mina Murray, Lestat di Lioncourt, Alexander Sterling, Nicky Sytx, Mr. Crepsley…

What are you working on at the moment?

Currently, I am finishing up Morgana’s Revenge, a YA LGBT+ historical fantasy, which is releasing March 20th in Just A Little Wicked, a boxed set featuring witches, which I am running.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The aforementioned Morgana’s Revenge.

Dead Memories, which will be in an untitled PNR/UFR boxed set. It follows my Paranormal Detectives character Angelica Cross as a teenager, attending paranormal summer camp.

Daunting Darkness, coming in July, which is a paranormal cozy mystery following a human named Paige as she becomes a private eye. Eventually, a paranormal murder case comes across her desk, and she has to find the killer before her friend is framed.
Make Me Bad is a slightly sci-fi horror novel coming on Halloween, following half-vampire Finn Lennox as he escapes torture from a sect trying to “make him tick”. He becomes a mortician, then a musician, all the while trying to evade the sect’s agents for two centuries.

Read a Christmas story by Seelie Kay The Last Christmas by @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #ChristmasRomanceSanta advises the Wright family on how to create a miracle at Christmas in Seelie Kay’s new contemporary romance, The Last Christmas. Will that be enough to save their father’s life?

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 The Last Christmas.

The Last Christmas by Seelie Kay

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When the doctors say there’s no hope, Santa begs to differ. After all, he claims, miracles are love combined with action to get the desired result. And at Christmas time, everyone deserves a miracle!

David Wright is dying from cancer. He is not expected to see another Christmas. At least that’s what the medical professionals say. Fortunately, Santa begs to differ. After all, modern medicine is nothing more than a best guess. Santa believes anything is possible until you give up. When Santa tells David’s wife, Joan, that heaven is full and she has to keep her husband alive, she is beside herself. She has no medical skills. How can she save anyone’s life? Set your skepticism aside as Santa embraces a family already mourning their father’s terminal diagnosis and teaches them that a Christmas miracle doesn’t always require heavenly intervention. Sometimes, all it takes is a family with enough love to create their own. As Santa says, a true miracle is when love combines with action to get the desired results. And only humans are capable of that. Will Santa’s words fall on deaf ears? Or will Team Wright find a way to save their father’s life?

Why did you write this book?

My father is 94-years-old and as you might expect, he has had a number of serious medical, age-related events. Each time, we were told to prepare for his death. Each time, he survived. The fact was, my Dad wasn’t ready to die. And his children and his grandchildren weren’t ready to let him go either. So I started thinking about terminal diagnoses and how they are really a best guess, not a guarantee. That, of course, led to thoughts how a terminal diagnosis often causes people to give up and prematurely mourn the death of the person who is ill. I wondered how that impacted the outcome. And because I was preparing to write a holiday book, I also started thinking about the power of family, and how, time after time, families are capable of creating miracles. That led me to “The Last Christmas.” Christmas truly is a time for miracles, and thought it important that everyone be able to experience one through the tale of the Wright Family.

Read the #PNR First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #ParanormalRomance Someone’s killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead in this new paranormal romance by Seelie Kay, First, We Kill All the Lawyers.

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 First, We Kill All the Lawyers.

First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay

Genre: Paranormal romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Someone is killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead.

Donovan Trait is a marked man. Flamboyant, stunningly handsome, and notoriously insatiable, his attitude and style belie his skills in the courtroom. No one survives a cross-examination at Donovan’s hands. His knowledge of the law and trial practice has accumulated over the years… and years, of experience. More than three hundred years. You see, when Donovan isn’t seducing judges and juries, he’s a creature of the night. And now that someone has decided that it’s time to kill all lawyers, his lust for attention has set him in the murderer’s sights. The problem is, vampires don’t die. Not easily, anyway. That’s good news for Donovan, not so much for his very human lady love, also a target of the serial killer. Will several unsuccessful attempts on his life expose Donovan’s true nature? Will the killer learn the secret that will guarantee a permanent death? Or will Donovan finally manage to put an end to the killer’s murderous spree and live happily ever after, with his lady love?

Why did you write this book?

I have wanted to write a vampire tale for some time, but had difficulty coming up with something consistent with current tropes. Finally, I decided it was time to break all the rules. After all, vampires have been around for centuries. Surely, they have evolved by now. And no doubt, they have many of the same societal problems that humans do. However, I also wanted the vampire to be a lawyer. The title came from my experience as a lawyer. I can’t tell you how many times someone would quote Dick the Butcher, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” (Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2.) They would laugh heartily, like they had just told a wonderful joke, but for me, it was great inspiration for a story. What if someone was killing lawyers?

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic suspense

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Stone Barrington. The series by Stuart Woods.

What are you working on at the moment?

The first book in a new series, “Tillie.” Mathilda Spencer is an MI6 agent who specializes in getting royals out of sticky situations!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

“The Last Christmas” will be released December 2020. The first book in the Tillie series, “Lady Annabelle’s Perplexing Predicament” will be released in early 2021.
