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.

A Foundation of Fear by Kim McMahill @kimmcmahill #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticSuspenseKim McMahill, 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.

A Foundation of Fear by Kim McMahill

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
FBI Special Agent Devyn Nash is obsessed with taking down Coterie, a deadly group out to control the multi-billion-dollar diet product industry. The FBI’s plan to expose Coterie places Devyn’s best friend and her partner’s fiancé in the crosshairs of this ruthless organization. Can Devyn protect her friend and bring the coldblooded killers to justice before they strike again while distracted by injury, a sexist bully, and a long-distance relationship with a handsome Wyoming sheriff?
Lobbyist and Coterie assassin Sofia Wilks wants nothing more than to regain control of her life. Sofia knows Agent Nash is nipping at her heels, but the FBI agent isn’t the worst of her fears. She is drawn to a man who has the power to destroy her.
Why did you write this book?
A Foundation of Fear is the third novel in the Risky Research Series. This story had to be written because FBI Agent Devyn Nash still has a lot of work to do to bring a deadly group to justice, and she has no intention of giving up on the smoking hot Wyoming sheriff who has stolen her heart.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love to read, write, and watch stories with filled with action, adventure, suspense and a bit of romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’ve read every book in Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series, so I guess I’d have to say, Dirk Pitt.
What are you working on at the moment?
I recently finished book four in the Risky Research Series, A Measure of Madness, and have sent it to my publisher. I also just completed a prequel novelette for the series, A Formidable Foe, which will be free to download. As soon as I kick off A Foundation of Fear, I’ll jump into book 5.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
It may be more than months, but I’m hoping A Measure of Madness isn’t too far behind A Foundation of Fear.

Rescuing Rory by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #SciFi #RomanceNJ 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 your book.

Rescuing Rory by NJ Walters

Genre Sci-Fi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Betrayed and sold into slavery after her father’s death, Rory Banks finds herself dancing on the Exos, a deep-space pleasure ship. So when a stranger breaks open her cage and offers her a way out, she grabs it and runs.
Kal Marks and his brothers are space mercenaries and traders who have spent the past ten years searching for their younger sister. Their hunt has led them to the Exos and to Rory, who they hope will have information. But Kal never counted on wanting Rory or on the sexual tension and scorching heat that blazes between them. This mission just got a lot more complicated.
Why did you write this book?
I actually wrote this book some years ago. I wanted to write a series about a family of space mercenaries. These men are tough and they’ll do whatever it takes to find their sister, who was abducted ten years before. None of them ever counted on falling in love. Is there anything more fun than watching a hard, tough man fall for a woman?
Rescuing Rory was released back in 2014 for a very short time before it was pulled due to a publisher closure. Now it’s back. There will be four brand new books in the series coming soon.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, of course. I tend to skip around, depending on my mood. I mostly read contemporary, romantic suspense, paranormal, and some historical romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That is so tough. Every time I’m asked this question I answer it differently. I love Rhage from the J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. How can you not love a vampire who turns into a dragon when he’s angry. He’s tough and funny and very protective of those he loves. Rhage has had several books in the series, while being an integral part of them all.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently working on a brand new paranormal series. Titles haven’t been finalized yet, but the first book is slated to be released in October.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
It’s going to be a busy year for me. Drakon’s Knight, the next Blood of the Dragon book, releases June 24th and is up for pre-order now. There will be more Tapestries books and more Marks Mercenaries books. (No dates yet.) The first book in a new paranormal series is slated to release in October. And I will likely be part of another anthology between now and the end of the year.

Skyline of downtown New York, New York, USA

Laci Paige, 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.

Conclusions, A Dark Dreams Novella by Laci Paige

Genre: It’s a paranormal romance for ages 18+

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Luciana has made her choice.
Three times.
In this final installment of the reader-driven Dark Dreams novella mini-series, YOU get to choose; human, shifter, or vampire.
Which forever should she choose?
Ethan – Nerd by day, sexy vampire by night. He’s the man of Luciana’s dreams, literally. Strong, cool, knows what he wants, and at night it’s always fast and hard. But is forever with him what she wants?
Nick – Gorgeous, caring, and sensitive. Something about Nick calls to Luciana. Nights with him are tender and caring. He’s selfless in bed. The shifter bond is strong, but can she handle being a one-man woman?
Lee – The safe and predictable human. He’s handsome, affectionate, and sexually adventurous.
She could go back to the way things were and forget all things supernatural. But then she’d be mundane—does she really want that?
***This is the final installment in a reader-driven series. If you haven’t read book one,The 13th Floor – it’s currently free.
Why did you write this book?
As an avid vampire lover, I read many paranormal stories. I wanted to write my own but didn’t know if I could do the genre justice. So this was my first go at paranormal.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance across the board.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
There are way too many to list, but I can say I enjoy reading about romantic alpha males.
What are you working on at the moment?
A military, second chance novella.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
A New Adult summer love romance.
