Navigate the lives and loves of six stepbrothers and six stepsisters as they take a chance on love.

Laura Haley-McNeil, 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 Beaumont Brides Boxed Set Books 1-3

The Beaumont Brides Boxed Set Books 1-3 by Laura Haley-McNeil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): 1

Book 1: Wherever Love Finds You

It’s his game. He makes the rules. Rule number one – only he can break the rules.

Book 2: When Love Whispers

Sometimes, love comes in packages.

Book 3: Call It Love

A kiss isn’t just a kiss…

Why did you write this book?  I remember a TV series Brothers & Sisters, though it didn’t interest me enough to watch it. I liked the premise of following the lives and loves of adult children. Throw in a blended family and the complications became more interesting. I couldn’t wait to write how six stepbrothers and six stepsisters with their careers established now face an additional complication called love.

What is your favorite genre to read?  Anything romance, but I also can’t resist a good psychological thriller.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?  I always come back to Scarlett O’Hara and Elizabeth Bennet. Those women don’t know the meaning of the word no. They know what they want and nothing will stop them, and they do that while maintaining their poise.

What are you working on at the moment? I’m finishing up a fourth book in my Christmas Billionaire series. The Billionaire’s Christmas Surprise, releases November 23, 2021. Alexander Ross has it all, including a nine year old daughter who struggles with the loss of her mother. He has searched far and wide to find the perfect woman who can guide his daughter through the emotional turmoil. He hadn’t expected a scarred woman to give his daughter the care she needed, and he doesn’t expect the change this woman will make in his own life.

What books will we see from you in coming months?  Love Calls Softly, Book 4 of the Beaumont Brides Series releases August 24, 2021, and The Billionaire’s Christmas Contract, Book 3 of the Christmas Billionaires Series releases October 26, 2021.

Lyndell, 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 Groom.

The Groom by Lyndell Williams

Genre Interracial Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Just when he starts to get his act together, Mansur wakes to an empty bed and a crying baby. His wife leaves him with their infant on the day he starts a new job. Uneasy and alone, he looks across the street to Faiza for help. As he relies on their long friendship, desires for the sexy firefighter reawaken within him.

Faiza can’t deny Mansur, even though she should. Her heart broke when he married another woman. She got herself together and moved on. Now, he is back in their childhood neighborhood and her life. She knows they’re just friends, but she can’t help longing for more.

Family and culture kept them apart when young, but Mansur won’t allow interference from anyone or anything. He is determined to make Faiza more than just a friend.

Why did you write this book?

The Groom is one of four books written by Muslim romance authors that center the holiday Ramadan. I wrote the main characters Mansur and Faiza’s story to show how the significance of the holy month to every aspect of Muslim life, including the most intimate.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance is my go-to genre. I love to read a range of books that highlight how people may fall or stay in love.

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

I don’t have one.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am hard at work getting the third book in the Open to Love series. Readers are itching for Rahmah’s story.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Whew! I have quite the writing roster. I am thrilled to write my first post-apocalyptic time travel romance. I have wanted to venture into SciFi romance for so long. I am also preparing to release the fourth book in the Brothers in Law series, which will feature Brandon Hulse, the teddy bear of the friends.

Just A Little Wicked by Lily Luchesi @LilyLuchesi #RLFblog #NewRelease #FantasyLily Luchesi, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Just A Little Wicked.

Just A Little Wicked by Lily Luchesi

Genre Fantasy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Morgana Le Fay, known as the Princess of Poison, wants nothing more than to graduate school and become a potioneer, alongside her love, Guinevere.

When Camelot’s king, Uther Pendragon, is poisoned to death, his son Arthur gives the Coven an ultimatum: renounce magic and join Camelot, or die.

Now split between traitors and witches, Morgan must figure out how to stop the teenage king from destroying her home, especially since he now has Guinevere and Merlin at his side.

Why did you write this book?

I started the boxed set Just A Little Wicked in order to have a place for my novella, Morgana’s Revenge. Initially, I wrote The Coven Princess, finalizing it in 2017, and in the book, I mention Morgan Le Fay and a poison she discovered in my world, and ever since I wanted to write an Arthurian story.
The more time went by, the more the characters screamed in my ears, coming out and telling me about themselves. It went from “oh, this would be cool,” to “I want to hug these people and protect them with my life.”

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love horror and urban fantasy, as well as thrillers. UF is my primary genre, but I also adore PNR and high fantasy. In fact, I am waiting on a new paperback of all 3 Lord of the Rings novels as one omnibus because my copy fell apart.
I basically love anything that doesn’t have humans in it; any subgenre will do.

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

Raven Madison, from Ellen Schreiber’s Vampire Kisses series. When I was a little girl, reading vampire novels like they would fill me up and allow me to live, I loved Raven the most because she was so much like me. She dressed like me, had the same favorite bands, same attitude. I wanted to be her so badly, and I still do, even as an adult.

What are you working on at the moment?

I have a few irons in the fire, the first being something for Samantha Calcott, my pen name. But for this name, I’m working on Dead Memories, which will release June 24th in the Summer Bites boxed set.
It’s a prequel to The Paranormal Detectives Series, following protagonist Angelica Cross when she’s a teenager, sent away to a paranormal summer camp in the English countryside. All seems mildly annoying, until campers begin vanishing, turning up with their hearts ripped out.
It’s a mix of Dracula and Friday the 13th.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

There’s the aforementioned Dead Memories, and then in July there will be my brand new series, Paige Papillion’s Paranormal Mysteries. Book one, Daunting Darkness, will be in a boxed set specifically for cozies. It’s a brand new genre for me, and I’m excited. The book is nearly done and I can’t wait to see where the series takes me!

A Date for the Wedding by Evangeline Evans @eevansauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #ContemporaryRomanceFalling for a heartbreaker was not part of the plan in Evangeline Evans’s new contemporary romance, A Date for the Wedding. Will a sexy fireman be more than Molly bargained for?

Evangeline, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A Date for the Wedding.

A Date for the Wedding by Evangeline Evans

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

After an accident ends her career in dance, Molly starts over in Lafayette Falls as the owner/instructor of the Infinity School of Dance. When she learns her deceitful ex-boyfriend has been invited to her best friend’s wedding, Molly faces finding a date for the wedding. The last thing she wants in her hectic life is a serious relationship, so she needs a “no strings attached” guy. Enter Travis Shelby, a firefighter and well-known womanizer. She considers him the perfect date for her best friend’s wedding until she realizes she is falling for the heartbreaker and she fears she’ll be burned by love again.

After mourning the death of his fiancée, Travis decides to look for love again. All he wants is to find that one special girl and settle down. Yet his search for Miss Right results in one disappointment after another and earns him a reputation as a player. When he meets Molly, a petite dancer who looks as if she belongs in a fairy tale, he’s love-struck. But can he convince Molly that she is the only girl he loves when his past drives an unforgiving wedge between them?

Why did you write this book?

I started this book in March 2020 when Covid disrupted everything, including ending my job. So for the first time, I got to write full-time. I wanted to write something conflict-light and cute and sexy. I always let the characters have control and Travis and Molly became such a fun, romantic couple. Plus I got to introduce a couple of favorites: Amber, a funny, outspoken hairstylist, and Travis’s complete opposite brother, Cameron, who wandered into the story unplanned. Now he has a book of his own!

What is your favorite genre to read?

I like mainstream/single title contemporary romances, historical romances, especially with a paranormal twist, and suspense thrillers.

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

I love Elvis and Joe, the two detectives in Robert Crais’s novels. Awesome!

What are you working on at the moment?

Final polish of Just Right for Him. Plus, I have a number of projects in different stages.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Just Right for Him, which is Cameron’s book. In May. Other Lafayette Falls titles: The Bluest Eyes in Texas, Not Through Loving You, Everything His Heart Desires.
