Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Kim McMahill, author of A Dose of Danger, a romantic suspense. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

A Dose of Danger by Kim McMahill

Genre Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
When researcher Grace Talbot and her team discover a possible solution for weight loss they are targeted by a group dedicated to controlling a diet product industry worth billions. Her unsanctioned testing methods bring tragedy to the family ranch and the attention of the local sheriff’s deputy. With her colleagues either dead, missing, or on the run she soon realizes she must trust the deputy with her life, but can she trust him with her heart?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, A Dose of Danger is my eighth romantic adventure/suspense novel
this book is part of a series?
Yes, A Dose of Danger is the first novel in the Risky Research Series, A Taste of Tragedy is the second, and the third, A Foundation of Fear, will release sometime this summer.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes, waking up in the middle of the night with the perfect next scene is not that uncommon for me.
you did research for this book?
Yes, I had to learn a lot about diet drugs, nutrition research, the FDA, and the anatomy of pigs.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes, most of the book is set on a ranch, so there are a lot of animals involved. A couple loyal dogs and a pig play significant roles.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, the book has suspense, action, romance, and could also fall in the crime fiction genre
you speak more than one language?
No, but I wish I could. I took German in High School and Spanish in college and the extent of my vocabulary is to inform those speakers that I don’t speak their language.
you grew up where you live now?
No, I currently live in Colorado, but grew up north of the border in Wyoming.
you love to read?
Absolutely. I have an eclectic reading list including non-fiction and fiction, but my first love is action, adventure, and just a dash of romance.
you are never late?
No, at least not very often.
you love pizza?
Yes, my favorite is pepperoni and green chili and the thinner the crust the better. I even make my own in the summer when I have fresh tomatoes for my homemade sauce, but I have figured out how to get the crust as thin as I’d like.
you love sushi?
Yes, but I prefer the non-raw varieties.
you have a pet?
No, I probably will get another dog one day, but I’m still grieving the passing of my pup of fifteen years.

This is my revenge.
Get ready Alexandra Ray.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, This is my fourth!

Yes, it is the third in the Saving Her series, but it can be read as a standalone! I recommend starting at Saving Her though for a better reading experience:).
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes! This book goes into some heavy stuff. Some really super personal stuff too, even though it’s hidden and I made sure no one but the people closest to me would know ;).
I often found myself emotional writing this book.
you did research for this book?
Yes, I really don’t want to give much away, but there is a character in this book who is an escort of sorts. I did some research to see what this is like for them.

Nope, all human!
this book has more than one genre?

you are never late?
Rarely. I hate it. That said, recently I’ve had some personal stuff come up and I feel like I’m behind on everything which to say that is rare for me would be an understatement.

you love sushi?
Yes!!! Love sushi. Seaweed salad, yum….

No! I haven’t been able to get one after losing my dog. I need more time. Plus, I’m not at a good place in my life to give it the time and attention it needs.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Diane Benefiel, author of Dead Giveaway, a Romantic Suspense. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Dead Giveaway by Diane Benefiel

Genre Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
The Worst that Can Happen
If asked, Gwendolyn Ballard would admit she co-parented her best friend Chloe’s son, Cameron. Now Gwen is all he’s got as they flee from the man who murdered his mother. There’s only one place Cameron will be safe, and that’s with his uncle, Elijah MacElvoy. Arriving on his doorstep at the Broken Arrow Ranch is a desperate decision, and Gwen knows he’d slam the door in her face if she didn’t have his nephew with her. But she’ll do anything for Cam, even if it means putting up with Elijah’s distrust and judgment.
Chloe’s dead. Cam’s orphaned, and Elijah is confronted with the prospect of living with the one woman who’s driven him crazy for the past ten years. He’ll fight to keep her safe. That’s encoded in his DNA. But can he trust her with a little boy who just lost his mother?
As Eli watches how Gwen loves and cares for his nephew, he reevaluates his thinking and gives in to the smoldering attraction he felt the first time he saw her. With so much on the line, Eli comes clean about his past, making way for a future that’s all about silver linings.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I have three books published previously. Readers might be interested in Solitary Man, which won the National Readers’ Choice Award for Romantic Suspense last year.
this book is part of a series?
Yes! Dead Giveaway is Book 2 in the High Sierras series.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No, not really. I actually find writing relaxing and enjoyable.
you did research for this book?
Yes. I am always looking up facts on the internet. The police would find my search history very alarming. Here’s just some of what I’ve looked up: the cost of a hitman, clip capacity for a .45, how to remove bloodstains from wood, great white shark attacks in Puget Sound.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. I love dogs, so my characters usually have dogs. In Dead Giveaway, Elijah raises quarter horses on his ranch, so I have horses as characters for the first time.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. Dead Giveaway is a romantic suspense, but also a western romance.
you speak more than one language?
No, not really. I’ve taken Spanish and French, for all the good it’s done me. On a trip to Paris, it was humiliating that after two years of French I couldn’t make myself understood. C’est la vie.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, at least in the same area. I work in the city I was born in, which is only ten miles from where I currently live.
you love to read?
Yes, yes, yes! Reading is a life-long passion. I’d rather read than watch a movie, go to a party, or just about anything else. I’m always looking for new authors.
you are never late?
No, but I’m mostly on time.
you love pizza?
Yes, if it’s vegetarian, with pesto instead of red sauce, and thin crust. Which is the exact opposite of the type my husband likes.
you love sushi?
No! I’ve had friends who have insisted on taking me to their favorite sushi place, because I must have tried it at a not-good sushi place. It’s still cold, squishy, and gross.
you have a pet?
No, sadly. 2016 was a horrible year because our beautiful dog died, and our three elderly cats died as well. We have a little pet cemetery in the back yard (we have a huge yard). But today, hubby and I visited a rescue shelter in a quest for our new dog.
