Healing Hearts by CB Clark

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Western

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Reeling from loss and heartbreak, Stella King is desperate to escape painful memories. The position of nanny on an isolated ranch in British Columbia’s rugged Chilcotin Plateau seems the answer to her prayers.

Cattle rancher, Dawson Wheeler, has worked hard to overcome grief and build a predictable world for his young daughter. The last thing he needs is the all-too-attractive Stella disrupting the smooth running of his ranch, especially now that disturbing incidents are happening on his property.

Defending his land against those who want to gut it will be a challenge, but the biggest threat of all may be to his heart.

Why did you write this book?

The idea behind Healing Hearts came from my shock when I learned that in British Columbia, landowners don’t own the rights to the land under the surface. That opens the door for mining companies to survey private property in search of valuable minerals. Healing Hearts is the story of a strong, independent rancher faced with the threat of a mine development on his property and a murderer who’ll do anything to stop the mine.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic Suspense

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

Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind

What are you working on at the moment?

Another romantic suspense. This one involves a heroine who comes across a child kidnapping victim when she’s out in the woods snowshoeing. She must escape the clutches of a ruthless killer and, with the help of a handsome detective, stop the kidnapper from striking again.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Healing Hearts was released on March 23, and it usually takes me about a year from starting the writing of a new book and going through the many rounds of editing, before a book is published. At the moment, I’m working on two stories that I’m excited about writing.

Read the new Paranormal Romance Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #PNRNJ Walters, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Fury Unleashed.

Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters

Genre PNR

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky–but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.

Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer–that’s definitely too good to be true–she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.

Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve been thinking about these characters for quite some time. It all started when I wondered who you’d call if a paranormal creature got out of control. Not like regular law enforcement could handle it. And if they were really bad, you’d need someone just as dark and deadly to deal with them. That lead me to the Forgotten Brotherhood–paranormal assassins–misfits who have no place in the world. They exist in the shadows, doing the dirty jobs no one else can or will do.

Maccus came to me first–a fallen angel who’d been cast into Hell and fought his way out. All he wants is peace, but there is a dark side to him that needs to be managed, so he does it in the most productive way possible–he’s an assassin. He’s not the monster under the bed, he’s the one you call to kill the monster under the bed. He’s so fierce both Heaven and Hell fear him.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance is my favorite genre to read. Depending on my mood, I’ll read contemporary, paranormal, romantic suspense, historical, or sci-fi/fantasy. There are so many great books to choose from.

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

That’s an impossible question to answer. There are so many I love. One of my favorites is Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. She is one kickass heroine and her storyline has been carried over fifty books. She’s grown and evolved through the series. I grab each new book when it’s released.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on the next Forgotten Brotherhood book–Arctic Bite.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

There are more Forgotten Brotherhood books coming. After that, who knows?

Read Chasing Ginger by Marie Lavender @marielavender1 #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticComedy #BillionaireRomanceMarie Lavender, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Chasing Ginger.

Chasing Ginger by Marie Lavender

Genre Steamy Romantic Comedy, BBW Romance, Billionaire Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.

This is not the resume Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.

Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.

And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.

So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?

As for Lance, he believes he’s lucky to have found Ginger. But can he convince her they should go for it?

With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?

(Content Warning: Watch for foul language, steamy scenes, and a pesky yet messy ability to choke on your dinner while laughing. If you’ve come expecting just a lighthearted, slapstick romance, you may not get that here. The author approaches sensitive topics in the best way she knows how. Just be prepared for all the feels to be deeper than usual for this genre – an emotional romantic comedy. No unruly cliffhangers, HEA guaranteed.)

Why did you write this book?

This novel came as a response to a reader’s comment when I posted a meme on social media. The concept snowballed from there, and it became the start of a six-book romantic comedy series.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Probably paranormal romance.

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

Wrath from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m in the mist of a young adult mystery story that I intend to submit to a literary journal.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Reader will see the relaunch of Magick and Moonlight, a modern romantic fantasy, as well as First Target, a romantic mystery collection. I’m not sure when my new publisher will re-release Upon Your Return, my historical romance novel, but I hope that one will be out soon too.

Read the new romance Mandraki Magic by Joanie MacNeil @ #RLFblog #NewRelease #ContemporaryRomance Joanie MacNeil, 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.

Mandraki Magic by Joanie MacNeil

Genre Contemporary romance – novella

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Is Jazzy’s first love the right man for her? When her first love arrives in the Old Town on the Greek Island of Rhodes, Jazzy’s peaceful existence is shattered. What is Finn’s real reason for being on the island?

Jazzy must sort through her confused emotions and make her own decisions. Can she trust him with her heart a second time?

Why did you write this book?

I wrote the story in the first half of 2019 as part of an anthology for my local romance writing group. The theme was ‘summer beach read’. I wanted to write something a little different to usual beach settings. None of the story elements was falling into place for me, until I decided, several months following a brief visit to Rhodes, to set my story there. Everything seem to come to life after that. There is so much to see in the Old Town, my visit was too short to cover it all.

The anthology project didn’t eventuate, and I decided to self-publish my novella. I’d love to revisit Rhodes again.

What is your favorite genre to read?

A range of romance, including romantic short stories, and Icelandic Noir

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

I’ve been reading ‘Ragnar Jónasson’s Dark Iceland series, following the journey through life and career of one of the main characters, Ari Thór, from his days as a young policeman in northern Iceland.

What are you working on at the moment?

 

At the moment I’m working on a novella or two. I have two novels which I’d like to complete in the coming months. They’ve been on the go for way too long.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Later this year, I plan to republish two of my earlier novels, A Traditional Affair, and A Sense of Duty, both contemporary romances set in Scotland.

I am an Australian romance author living in Canberra, Australia’s National Capital. I write short contemporary romance novels and novellas, ranging from sweet to sexy stories about new love and second chances. I love to travel with my own romantic hero and have visited parts of the world I never dreamed I’d see.
Home, family and friends are important to me. I have blended these elements into some of my stories.
When I’m not travelling, or working on my latest project, I enjoy reading romance as well as Icelandic Noir. Though I like watching movies, I never find the time to go to the cinema. I manage to catch up on some shows on Netflix. I enjoy meeting friends for coffee, and am a regular participant in aqua aerobics.

Know the Hero from The Director and the Artist in The Director and the Artist in Your Desire by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #fantasy #magic #PNRDee 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 hero, but first, tell us Your Desire.

The Director and the Artist in Your Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Your Desire. A mysterious shop appears in town for one reason: to bring the spice of passion and the thrill of love to one special person. Magic is in more than the item purchased—it’s in the heart of the buyer, often hidden, usually surprising. And after enchantment takes hold? The store fades from sight and memory, only to reappear somewhere else. Maybe in your town….

The Artist and the Director
Derica Meadows, the conservative Director of Accounting at a large San Francisco firm, sees the most beautiful dress imaginable in a shop window. So different from her usual genderless pant suits, she’s swept into acquiring the gown for a formal business affair the next night. But a funny thing happens on the way to her party, in the form of a compelling man and a photo shoot. Suddenly, the normally logical Derica finds herself swimming in a sea of sexual freedom she’d never before considered. The hunk of a artist can satisfy her fantasies, but what will happen to her climb up the corporate ladder in the process? And to her heart?

Awards Night
Allison Hayes has always tried to be all things to all people. Need anything done? Call Allison. It seems no one considers that Allison might have needs, too. When she goes home one night to find a man injured in her pasture, she resigns herself to helping out yet again. However, it isn’t long before she finds the roles reversed, as the mysterious man fulfills her deepest desires. By morning, Allison knows that in being the Good Samaritan this time, she’s gotten more than she gave. The question is, was it passion for one night or for a lifetime of love?

Know the Hero from The Director and the Artist in Your Desire

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

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

Goes out with his brother and whoever else is around and hit the clubs. But he’s rarely bored because there is always something to paint, and painting is his passion.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

It seems someone in his loft has always brought in pizza, and in a pinch, pizza will always do the job of waylaying hunger. If he’s out, a quick burger is good. He’s not one for the usual snack foods.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Jeans and tee shirts—anything he doesn’t have to worry about getting paint on. When he goes out, he does have “good” jeans, and even slacks.

Does he know how to fix things?

He keeps a small toolbox around for very minor repairs. But can he rebuild a car engine or replumb a bathroom? No. He can change out a washer in the bathroom faucet or wire a lamp (thank you, YouTube!), but nothing too complex.

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

He took a job as a commercial graphic artist in order to fit into a woman’s lifestyle. He hated every minute and it affected his relationship. Neither lasted.

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

Steven—or Kailen, the name he uses for his modeling and art—loves kids. When he and the current woman in his life, Derica, go to one of her bosses’ events, he spends more time out on the lawn with the children than he does with the men.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Very loving. He wakes up ready to devote attention to his lady, and then he’s ready for the day. He’s up to make breakfast and then dash out to whatever he has lined up.

Can he use chopsticks?

He never learned. It doesn’t bother him to use a fork.

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

He does. He drinks it black,

What apps would he have on his phone?

Steven is a go-getter. He’s a model, a courier, and (his passion), an artist. He has an app for both his modeling agency and the courier company. Other than those, his phone is strictly for making and receiving calls or texts.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

A diamond stud in one ear. No tattoos. At first, he didn’t get a tat because he was going into the corporate world and he figured why get something just to have to keep it covered. And then…he didn’t feel the need.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Public transportation. There’s no need for a car in San Francisco—public transport is too good.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Stuart: Bachelors and Babies #10 by Caroline Clemmons @carolinclemmons #RLFblog #NewRelease #westernhistoricalCaroline Clemmons, 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.

Stuart, Bachelors and Babies (#10) by Caroline Clemmons

Genre western historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

He is building for the future…

She is escaping the past…

Trouble could destroy their family

Stuart McGee needs the bounty from capturing the two men he’s trailing. That reward will allow him to buy the ranch of his dreams. When he encounters the men, he learns they’ve killed a young couple. The big surprise is there’s a baby in their cabin. What is Stuart supposed to do with a baby girl?

Georgina Potter has to get away from home. Her family treats her as a screw-up. She is determined to prove them wrong. Starting over as a mail-order bride might not be the best way but it’s the only way she can get away from her family. When she arrives she learns her groom has married someone else. What is she going to do with no money, no groom, and nowhere to stay?

When Georgina and Stuart marry, neither is convinced it’s the right choice. Baby Adeline captures the affection of both. Can working together as parents ignite romance for Georgina and Stuart? When trouble comes, will their fledgling relationship disintegrate or become stronger?

Why did you write this book?

I was invited by Charlene Raddon to be a part of the multi-author project Bachelors and Babies. The premise is a bachelor in some way finds or is responsible for a baby for whom he is unprepared. That immediately put an idea in my mind and I was eager to participate. I’m so glad I did because I enjoyed writing this book. I think it’s the best I’ve written in a while. The heroine has “incidents” I had fun creating. Beta readers have said it’s their favorite.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Western historical but I read everything except horror, true crime, erotica, or sci-fi

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

Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood.

What are you working on at the moment?

Another fun project, Polka With Pauline, one of the Matchmaker’s Ball series books. I really enjoy these multi-author projects (MAP). They force me to stretch myself and I’ve been surprised at how much I’ve benefitted from the experience.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I have a busy year planned. After Polka With Pauline in March, Mail-Order Victoria will release in April followed by a novella a month through December.
