Is It True: The Slow Burn by Caro Carson @TheCaroCarson #RLFblog #romance #ContemporaryRomance #readA fireman fights his way out of the “friend zone” and into the fire of a hot, new contemporary romance by USA Today bestselling author, Caro Carson.

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, Caro Carson, author of The Slow Burn, a new contemporary romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

The Slow Burn by Caro Carson

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Out of the friend zone…and into the fire!

When firefighter Caden Sterling unexpectedly delivers Tana McKenna’s baby by the side of the road, the unlikely threesome forms a special bond. When Caden offers friendship and a helping hand, single mom Tana can’t say no. Their flirty friendship slowly becomes something more, until Tana’s ex and the truth about her baby catch up with her. Now Tana must try to regain Caden’s trust—because he is the only man who can make this family complete.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. This is my 17th published contemporary romance with Harlequin. I also have two delicious time travel novels for those who love pirates.

this book is part of a series?

Yes! This is the second book in my new “Masterson, Texas” series. All the books are set in the same college town, but each book tells the complete story of one couple, so you don’t have to read them all or even read them in order.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

Yes, I always, always lose sleep when writing a book. It takes a toll. I really need to develop better work habits.

you did research for this book?

Yes! I rode along with the city’s fire department, a full twelve hours going out on calls with them, eating meals in the firehouse, everything. I was once a first responder myself, an officer in the US Army’s military police corps, so I’d worked with firefighters, of course, but never this closely. They are true public servants, arriving on every scene with the goal of helping however they can.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

No. All human beings in this book. Some are nicer than others! Our heroine has to handle a lot of different responses to her accidental pregnancy, from her boyfriend (who immediately decides he is her ex and leaves the country) to her parents to her BFF…to the handsome fireman who comes to her rescue.

this book has more than one genre?

No. It’s a contemporary romance with a heartwarming happily-ever-after.

you speak more than one language?

No. Once upon a time, I knew a decent bit of German because I took it in high school and college, but I think a second language is one of those things which falls under “if you don’t use it, you lose it.” But I still love schnitzel und bier!

you grew up where you live now?

Yes. Sort of. I’m a native Floridian from the Miami area. Then I went to West Point, the United States Military Academy, in New York, then was sent by the army to Alabama, Georgia, Texas, and the country of Panama. After my service, my civilian job took me from Baltimore to Pittsburgh to…Orlando! Yay! I made it back to my home state, just about a four-hour drive north of Miami. Yes, I do have annual passes to Disney World. It’s my childhood dream come true.

you love to read?

Yes. How could anyone write if they didn’t read? But I don’t read nearly as much as I used to, because I know I should be writing instead.

you are never late?

No. I am always late. If West Point and the US Army couldn’t make me prompt, nothing can, I’m afraid. But I keep trying. I’m always so frustrated when I don’t get somewhere on time, because I do not want to be late.

you love pizza?

Yes, I love pizza. All kinds. All toppings except anchovies—too salty for me. But I will eat the oh-so-controversial Hawaiian pizza. Pineapple and ham taste so surprisingly good on pizza. My most memorable pizza was eaten in a California Kitchen restaurant, their BLT pizza. The bacon and tomato part was hot, but the shredded lettuce and mayo on top was cold, and the whole danged thing was delicious. It might not actually have been a pizza, though.

you love sushi?

Yes. I’m a sushi lover, but please don’t squeeze the orange mayonnaise stuff all over it. That sauce is too similar to McDonald’s special sauce, which is fine on a Big Mac, but I don’t want it on my tuna and salmon!

you have a pet?

Yes, two kinds. First, I have the requisite adorable little rescue dog, who loves me and keeps me company and does all the wonderful things dogs do for undeserving humans. Second, I have fish. I love my aquarium and I get attached to my goldfish, because they can live as long as dogs. I’ve had my current goldfish for seven years. He started as a little two-inch dude at a pet store, and he’s now bigger than my fist. Please do not point out to him my answer to the sushi question, above.

Initiative–a smoldering new short story collection by Emerald. Heat and boldness abound in Initiative, a new collection of thirteen sizzling short stories from award-winning author Emerald.

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, Emerald, author of Initiative: Tales of Erotic Boldness, an erotica short story collection. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Initiative: Tales of Erotic Boldness by Emerald

Genre: Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

From audacious proposals to first-time exploits to newfound inner confidence, taking initiative delves into the risqué in these thirteen smoldering tales. An accidental catalyst invokes a bold move in “Fulfillment,” while the brassiness in “Shift Change” belongs entirely to narrator Stacey. “Who’s on Top?” sees a meeting between fans of rival baseball teams turn into a game of chance and wits, and “The Beast Within” offers a present-day “Beauty and the Beast” rendition that puts a twist on ugliness, beauty, pain, and pleasure—and the surprising ways they can intertwine.

Sometimes brazen, sometimes subtle, the initiatives between these pages always showcase the erotic and how it can both inspire and evoke our most emboldened selves.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

It is not. I have had two prior short story collections published: If… Then: A Collection of Erotic Romance Stories and Safe: A Collection of Erotic Stories. This is the first one with a particular theme.

this book is part of a series?

No, it’s a short story collection, and the stories within it are not related to each other (except by the title theme).

you did research for this book?

Yes! With thirteen stories, the chances are at least a few of them are going to require some degree of research. Ironically, one of the stories that required the most was set in a place that is very familiar to me, namely a Midwestern state fair. But because I don’t live there anymore, I wasn’t there when I was writing the story and couldn’t remember how the fairgrounds were laid out and things like lighting, hours, and how deserted the section where I wanted the sex scene to take place would be at what time. I also had to research certain specifications of the farm equipment that comes into play in the story.

“Winter” also required a considerable amount of research, largely because it was set in a place I wasn’t so familiar with. I have been to Alaska, but not during the winter, and I became quite immersed in this story’s research—Alaska seems like a mysterious, beautiful place, and a lot of the photographs and materials from its tourism websites speak to this. I felt very drawn to the setting as I was writing the story.

Then there was research that was less extensive but aimed toward specificity, such as looking up the history of Beauty and the Beast and finding certain details about the original story, as well as ones that had tended to remain through various versions, so I could reference them in “The Beast Within,” which is a modern-day rewrite of the tale.

Even with short stories, research, in my experience, is part of the writing process, and it’s an aspect I’ve usually tended to enjoy.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes, there are two stories that feature pets—and in fact, in both cases, the pet is at least partially responsible for the characters’ either meeting or connecting. In “Fulfillment,” the main character Kristen has a yellow tabby cat named Cheerio, and in “Changing Tides,” character Ray has a border collie mix named Jameison.

this book has more than one genre?

I would maybe say subgenre, given that it is all certainly erotica, but some of the stories in the book could be considered erotic romance more than erotica.

you speak more than one language?

No, just English, though I know a rudimentary amount of American Sign Language that I learned in elementary school. I also know a bit of French, though less than it seems I should, given how many years I took of it in high school and college!

you grew up where you live now?

It is not. I grew up in Iowa and lived in my hometown until I was twenty-one. I then moved to Pittsburgh, where I got my undergrad degree, moved to the Washington, DC, area for grad school, moved to Spokane, WA, to pursue an MFA (I ended up choosing to leave that program before attaining the degree), and then returned to the DC area, where I’ve been for about the last fifteen years. I live a little west of the metro area now in a small town in Virginia.

you love to read?

Yes, though I’ve tended to not do it as much as I’d like due to feeling like I “should” be doing other things. I’ve loved reading since I was a kid. I’ve tended to read more nonfiction than fiction in recent years, but I am specifically aiming to get back to reading for pleasure of late. As strange as it seems, it was only within the last year and a half that I discovered how much I adore Jane Austen’s work! I picked up Northanger Abbey on a whim last year and eagerly worked my way through Austen’s entire catalogue over the next several months. It really reminded me how awesome it is to read fiction purely for pleasure and entertainment.

you are never late?

Ha! Alas, I wish the very asking of this question wasn’t so laughable. Ironically, I despise being late even though I have frequently tended to be…I truly seem to have no sense of time.

you love pizza?

Depends on what kind. I seem to be in the minority of most of the people I’ve known in that my favorite kind of pizza is sauerkraut.

you love sushi?

I do love sushi, though there are some things I have not tried and don’t feel an interest in trying. But I adore spicy tuna hand rolls and hand rolls in general because I’m such a fan of the seaweed.

you have a pet?

I have four! Two sibling dogs (that I still call “the puppies” even though they’re five now) from the local no-kill shelter where I volunteer, and two cats who are also rescues—one is blind (was born that way) and one had to have her front left leg amputated prior to coming into my care. I end each monthly issue of my author newsletter with a picture of one or more of them!

Is It True: Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Cynthia Terelst @cynthiaterelst #RLFblog #romanceCynthia Terelst pens the Australian Romance Let Sleeping Dogs Lie. The multiculural second-chance contemporary romance includes a scavenger hunt.

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, Cynthia Terelst, author of Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, a contemporary romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Cynthia Terelst

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Will one of the treasures they find be each other’s heart?

It’s been five years since Tara walked out of Shepherd’s life without a word. Since then he’s spiralled through drugs, alcohol and empty relationships, with Tara on his mind the whole time. Now he wants to win her back, and what better way to do it than by creating a fake scavenger hunt? He knows she won’t be able to resist.

Tara’s lost enough loved ones and she didn’t want to see Shepherd added to that count. So, when she saw him high at graduation, she did the only thing she could – she walked away. When she’s teamed up with him for a million dollar scavenger hunt, the feelings reignite. For a second chance at love to work, she needs to be brave enough to open up to him, to tell him everything she withheld the first time around.

Shepherd didn’t realise how much winning would mean to Tara. He now needs to come up with $3 million for her foundation before the hunt is over. If he can’t he will need to tell her its all fake, and he doesn’t know if he can risk that.

Will secrets destroy them a second time around?

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. This is my second published book. My first one was The Cat’s out of the Bag, a billionaire romance set in Australia which includes a homeless cat and a road trip.

this book is part of a series?

Yes, the Love Down Under series. The books in the series are all stand-alones, what ties them together is the location, Australia.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

No. I don’t lose sleep about much.

you did research for this book?

Yes. I needed to research the places where the scavenger hunts took place. Some of them I’ve visited in person.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes, there are three dogs in this book – Benny, Billy and George.

this book has more than one genre?

No. It is a contemporary romance only.

you speak more than one language?

No, just English. Unless swearing is considered its own language.

you grew up where you live now?

No, I grew up thousands of kilometers away in Melbourne, Victoria. I now live in sunny Queensland. I moved for a better work life balance and the warmer weather.

you love to read?

Yes. I wish I had more time to read. I try to read every day.

you are never late?

No, I am always late. I just can’t seem to get anywhere on time. I was glad when my work set an 8am meeting, which then forced me to get to work when I was supposed to.

you love pizza?

Yes. Pizza is great. When I was younger my favourite was Mexicana with pineapple. You might think it’s weird, but I thought it was great.

you love sushi?

Yes, I do enjoy sushi. I’ve even tried making it myself and it didn’t turn out too bad. It’s easier to buy though.

you have a pet?

Yes, I have two cats, Kimmy and Possum. And I foster kittens for a local rescue. I don’t have any kittens in care at the moment.

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, Amber Daulton, author of Timeless Honor, a Time Travel Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Timeless Honor by Amber Daulton

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Jaye Ramsey decided to prove to her eccentric grandmother that time travel only existed in movies by vacationing in Bolivia with her friends. When she woke up in Hawksatter, England, 1735–the same town her grandmother supposedly vanished from as a young woman–Jaye found refuge at a hunting lodge but the strapping, reclusive baron who took her in reminded her all too well she was a lone woman at his mercy.

Accused of murdering his newly-wedded wife a decade earlier, Lord Lucas Kenway closed the family farm and shut out the world. He never expected the little spitfire he claimed responsibility for would turn his quiet life upside down. Pushed together by fate and his meddling servants, Lucas wanted Jaye on his own terms and refused to surrender his hardened heart.

Then a mysterious wise man offered Jaye a way home.

Should she return to the future and the only life she’d ever known, or stay in an uncertain past as a stranger in a new world?

Is it true:

This is your first book?

Nope. Timeless Honor is my sixth publication.

This book is part of a series?

Yes. It’s book three in the Mirrors of Time series, in which five authors each wrote a story. I enjoyed writing for this series so much that I wrote a second story, titled Timeless Beginnings, which is separate from the series but serves as a prequel for Timeless Honor. Both of my Timeless books are standalones.

You lost sleep while writing this book?

I always lose sleep when I’m writing. My mind just won’t shut down as I envision each scene and come up with dialogue.

You did do research for this book?

Oh, yes! Tons of research about the Salar de Uyuni (the salt flats in Bolivia) and about the Georgian era in England.

Some characters in this book are not human?

Most of my characters are human, expect for a few hunting dogs. I’m not sure how I would classify the mystical old wise man. He was supernatural, sure, but human? It’s hard to say.

This book has more than one genre?

True. It begins in modern day (a contemporary), but then the heroine travels through history (time travel) and winds up in the past (historical). So, technically, it fits into three sub-genres of romance.

You speak more than one language?

LOL! I wish.

You grew up where you live now?

True. I would love to move elsewhere, but my hubby and I have a good situation where we are.

You love to read?

Duh. I’m an author. Books and me? We’re tight.

You are never late?

Most of the time. Usually, I’m early.

You love pizza?

YES! With extra black olives, green peppers, and onion.

You love sushi?

Yes and no. No, as in I don’t like the food. Yes, as in I love and miss my departed cat Sushi with all my heart. She was such a sweet kitty and crossed the rainbow bridge about 12 years ago.

You have a pet?

I have two cats–Darby and Pepper–who are both 7 years old. I did have a third cat, Sox, but he passed away last month. He was only 3. I’m still grieving over Sox’s loss, but loving on Darby and Pepper soothes the pain.

Is It True: Ice Princess by Tricia Schneider @TriciaSchneider #RLFblog #FantasyRomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Tricia Schneider, author of Ice Princess, a fantasy romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Ice Princess by Tricia Schneider

Genre Fantasy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Princess Lily is determined to save her kingdom from the evil influence of the sorcerer in their midst. When she makes her stand, he curses her beloved to turn into a dragon and casts a spell that seals her in a block of ice where she will sleep for all eternity.

Eternity arrives earlier than expected when Rick Stamos tears down a wall to the tavern he’s renovating. He never expects to find a woman encased in ice hidden in his basement. After melting the ice, he’s more surprised when the woman wakes and claims he is her beloved.

Did the spell that kept Lily frozen for so long also curse Rick? Is he really her beloved or a stranger with the same face?

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. This is my sixteenth book published. I have a few more future books scheduled for release. By the end of the year, I’ll be up to twenty.

this book is part of a series?

Yes and no. I didn’t originally write Ice Princess as part of a series, but readers have been asking for more. I’m considering writing other books set in this world.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

Yes. My deadline for this book was approaching fast. I didn’t know if I would make it or not. It was nerve-wracking, but I did it!

you did research for this book?

Yes. The story takes place in England, so I did some research on the setting.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes. Lily’s beloved is turned into a dragon by an evil sorcerer.

this book has more than one genre?

Yes, if we’re talking subgenres. It’s a romance, no question about that. It could be Fantasy Romance or Paranormal Romance.

you speak more than one language?

Yes. I speak English. Well, since I was born in the USA, I speak American English. I took five years of German in school. I’m not completely fluent, but I managed to get by when I visited Germany several years ago. I enjoy reading books written in German. I can read it better than speak it!

I also began teaching myself and my children sign language. I started learning simple signs when they were babies. It was easier for them to sign what they wanted (thirsty, hungry, etc.) before they learned how to speak. With each baby I had, my older children continued to learn. Again, we’re not completely fluent, but learning it has become handy in some moments. While I worked at the bookstore near my home, a deaf customer came into our store one day. I still remember his smile when I answered him with sign language.

you grew up where you live now?

That’s true. I’ve traveled to 2 countries and visited nearly half of the United States, but I’ve always made my home in Pennsylvania. I currently live in the town directly next to the one where I grew up. I really haven’t moved far.

you love to read?

Absolutely true! I’ve been an avid reader all my life. I loved books so much I worked in a bookstore for 12 years. And if Waldenbooks hadn’t closed its doors back in 2010, I’d still be working there.

you are never late?

Not true. I always try to be on time, but it’s a hassle leaving the house with four kids. Inevitably, someone is missing a shoe or something and we all need to search for fifteen minutes before leaving the house. My life is typically chaos!

you love pizza?

Yes! There’s a pizza shop in my town called Messina’s Pizza that makes the BEST Sicilian pizza! My favorite!

you love sushi?

I don’t know. I’ve never had sushi.

you have a pet?

Yes, I have 2 cats, Cassius and Harley. I found them at different times as stray kittens in my backyard. Or rather, they found me!
