After 34 years alone, Michael “Monk” Magonagle is falling in love with Betsie and is fond of her son. Monk is certain she is not free of the men her late husband cheated. Although he is not a violent man by nature, Monk is willing to fight for Betsie’s safety. He and the men of the Kincaid family prepare to meet the enemy.

A Hand for the Duke by Meredith Bond @merrybond #RLFblog #NewRelease #RegencyromanceMeredith Bond, 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 Hand for the Duke by Meredith Bond

Genre: Regency romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Can the Ladies of the Wagering Whist Society help an impoverished modiste win the hand of a sought-after Duke?
Tina Rowan is beautiful, talented—and wants nothing more than to be free of her past. The illegitimate daughter of a baroness, she is being blackmailed by her own foster-father. She must rely on her flair for designing dresses to earn enough to pay him off. Starting a business dressing the ladies of Regency society isn’t easy for a nobody. But Tina has three aces up her sleeve—her own amazing talent, her well-connected biological mother, and the helpful (if meddlesome) support of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society.
The handsome, arrogant Duke of Warwick has grown up schooled in the “proper” way for a nobleman to behave. Rule number one: do not fraternize with people of the lower classes. But when he has to introduce his beloved sister to society, he finds himself completely reliant on the beguiling woman he’s hired as his sister’s modiste. To his astonishment, he finds himself opening up to her and enjoying her company far, far too much.
When Tina discovers the true man behind the ducal title, her heart might very well be lost. But can the duke set aside his façade and allow himself to love the only woman who could possibly make him happy?
It will take the combined efforts of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society to see this difficult hand well played.
Why did you write this book?
This is the first book of my new traditional Regency series, The Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society. With this series, I wanted to explore character tropes.
I love characters. For me they’re the reason I read. It’s why I love the romances of Julia Quinn, Mary Jo Putney, and Tessa Dare. They all have amazing characters who just fall in love with.
The characters of the LWWS (Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society) are all based on a traditional Regency character trope. I’ve got the “forthright widow”, an athlete, the joker, the stickler, a mushroom, a high-and-mighty duchess, etc. Eight characters because it takes four people to play whist, so two tables of whist (I felt four people would be too few). Each of the characters will have their own book, plus I added a ninth book to make three trilogies.
The first book of the series is a “Cindarella” story about the illegitimate daughter of the woman who founded the LWWS, Lady Norman. Her daughter, Tina Rowan, was raised by a foster-family in a little village, and wants to be a modiste (she’s a talented dress designer and seamstress). Her mother sponsors her and helps her start on her career, never once imagining that she would catch the eye of a handsome, cold-hearted duke who hires her to dress his younger sister.
Tina manages to melt the block of ice that is this duke’s heart and begins to dare to dream the impossible – that this man could one day be hers.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Regency romance, of course! But I also read just about every genre. I love mystery, fantasy, and even sometimes literary fiction. Every so often I’ll read a biography or history because it’s just another way to learn about people and their lives.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Falconer, the hero of MaryJo Putney’s Stolen Magic, Daphne Bridgerton, heroine of The Duke and I by Julia Quinn, and whatever I’m reading at the moment!
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m just starting to write book 4 of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society, A Trick of Mirrors.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Next month, in May, Jack of Diamonds, Book 2 of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society will be released, and in June I’ll release Book 3, The Games She Played.

Embroidered Fantasies, a Romance by by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #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.

Embroidered Fantasies by NJ Walters

Genre Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

With her abusive ex-husband safely behind bars, Roxanne Sykes is trying to carve out a quiet life for herself. Just as she’s beginning to feel free to explore her new possibilities, word reaches her that her cruel ex has been released from prison. When he shows up at her door bent on destroying her, it’s only through the magic of a well-loved tapestry that Roxanne is whisked away to safety–and into the world of a warrior she’s known only from her fantasies.

Radnor Craddock has known only a life of violence and brutality at the hands of his older brothers. Now that they have fallen in battle, Radnor and his twin brother Sednar can finally put their house in order. Just as their efforts are bearing fruit, fate smiles upon them again by delivering a potential tapestry bride to their doorstep. Well aware of what they must do to win her hand and her heart, the brothers dedicate themselves to granting Roxanne every imaginable pleasure, driving her to sensual heights unlike any she has ever known.

With each new erotic encounter stirring a loving bond between the three, Roxanne is tempted to accept the promise of the tapestry and make a new life and new home with the brothers. But she has trusted before and been painfully wrong, and she’s frightened by the whisperings of the brothers’ violent past. Unsure of herself and threatened anew when her merciless ex finds his way to her once again, Roxanne must trust her heart as the brothers vow to protect her and destroy her ex–and to give her a life and love she had never dreamed possible…

Why did you write this book?

When I wrote the first book in this series–Christina’s Tapestry–I’d intended it to be a standalone title. But the world of Javara was so fascinating and the possibilities limitless, and I just kept on writing. The older Craddock brothers are villains in the earlier books. It made me stop and wonder about the younger brothers. This is their story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course.

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

That is so tough. I have so many characters from fiction that I love that I can’t choose just one. So let’s just say that 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 more than forty 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 a new paranormal series for Entangled. I’m quite excited about it.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’m in the Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology due out April 30th. My next Blood of the Drakon book–Drakon’s Knight–is releasing June 24th. And the next Tapestries book will be out in about three months.
