Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance #WritingCommunity @BookClubPro1 Dee S Knight, 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.

Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Seriously ambitious man seeks woman to encourage his goals, support his (hopeful) position as Headmaster of Westover Academy, and be purer than Caesar’s wife. Good luck with that!
Daniel Goodman is a man on a mission. He aims to become headmaster of Westover Academy. For that he needs a particular, special woman to help him set high standards. Into his cut and dried life of moral and upright behavior, comes Eve Star, formerly one of Europe’s foremost exotic dancers. Her life is anything but cut and dried, black and white. Daniel is drawn to her like a kid to chocolate. Nothing good can come of this attraction. Or can it? He is after all, a good man.
What’s your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?
@GBPDaily
It’s not that I’m the world’s greatest Green Bay Packers fan, and by that I mean I don’t really know diddly about football in general, but I like Green Bay. I like that the fans own the team and how loyal they are. And we lived outside Green Bay for a while and I love the area. Actually, I am interested in most of the teams that represent the areas where (or near where) we’ve lived. So that includes Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, and Carolina Panthers. So see? My “fanship” is spread out quite a bit. There is one exception to the “root for the home team” rule, but I’m not saying what it is.
Describe the perfect vacation.
First and foremost, being with my honey. Doing anything and being anywhere is a vacation if we’re together. But it’s fun if we’re somewhere new, where there are things to see but comfortable places to return to, also. We’re of an age where an afternoon nap is fun, so we don’t go where the action is non-stop anymore. We like theatre and museums and such, not theme parks. Flying anywhere is too much hassle, so we tend to go places where we can drive. Old truckers never lose the driving bug!
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
I had a little stuffed monkey, light brown with a hard face. He was on a stretch of elastic and I dragged him around everywhere! My mom still has him.
What are your hobbies?
Reading is the best hobby of all! I used to do counted cross stitch and some crewel work, but then writing and working seemed to take up most of my time.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
I’ve collected travel magazines and points of interest brochures from places we’ve traveled over the years and use them for reference, along with maps. And of course, I use all kinds of sources on the Internet, including Wikipedia and travel sites. Since we traveled so much while trucking, I draw a lot on personal experience for locations, but for things like city size and street names and such, I go to their pages online.

Moonlight Match by Kristina Knight @AuthorKristina #RLFblog #sweetromanceWelcome 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.

Moonlight Match by Kristina Knight

Genre: Sweet romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Aster Harrington believes in love but love doesn’t seem to believe in her. She’s hoping Goldie and Ginny, the matchmakers who’ve matched on two generations of Harringtons, can work a little love magic for her…
Some call Ethan Talbot rigid, but he prefers to think of himself as prepared. Unfortunately, when he’s matched with Aster Harrington at Joy Island’s Matchmaking Week, all those carefully prepared plans go out the window. He can get back to finding a suitable wife once he’s home in New York. After all, how much damage can one week in the Bahamas do to his plans?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes! I write contemporary romance and women’s fiction, although I’m still awaiting a publication date on my first women’s fiction novel!
How do you come up with ideas?…
Ideas come to me all the time – I’ll overhear a bit of a conversation, or people-watching at the mall will make me wonder, or a movie…ideas are everywhere, we just have to look for them!
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Getting that first draft down. I’m a big believer in “you can’t edit a blank page” and there are times, in every first draft, when I just don’t want to. I’m stuck or I’m not connecting with the characters or…heck, it’s a beautiful, sunshiney day after a long, gray winter…those are the days that I just have to push through because if I don’t get the draft down then I can’t make it pretty – and publishable!
When did you write your first book?…
I’ve been writing stories as long as I can remember. My first attempt at an actual book was in 6th grade – I wrote a girl-power, Three Musketeers story. It was so much fun, and probably completely awful (I lost it, boo!), but it definitely made me want to write more.

FUN

Leather or lace? – lace, leather makes you sweaty!
Black or red? – black, the better to blend!
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? – the smoothest of cotton
Ocean or mountains? – Ocean. Most of the time.
City life or country life? – Country – but close enough to the city for a night out!
Party life or evening at home? – Evening at home, for sure!
Dogs or cats? – DOGS!!!!!!!

Passionate Destiny by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance #PNR #ghostDee S Knight , 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.

Passionate Destiny by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Dr. Margaret Amis-Hollings, professor of women’s studies at a small New Jersey college, is a woman who confidently knows who she is and what she expects of life. Until she loses her teaching position and her well-ordered life gets turned upside down. Then, in a subtle stroke of whimsy, fate tosses her a gift in an historic home and property in Virginia.
Harboring visions of Gone With the Wind, she determines to use River Peace as a temporary reprieve from her troubles. Images of Tara quickly evaporate when she arrives to discover the reality of her inheritance, however.
River Peace has history, grace and style going for it. After only one night, Margaret discovers that it also has a ghost. She’s visited by a male spirit from the time of the War Between the States, who knows how to make a woman feel special. And very loved, indeed.
Aaron Belton meets Margaret when she first arrives in Virginia. He’s renowned for historic renovations on a multitude of properties, but he’s got a special place in his heart for River Peace. He and his family believe the property always should have belonged to them. In fact, Aaron will do almost anything to make that happen. When his passion for the house changes to a passion for the house’s owner, Aaron’s as surprised as anyone. Can he gain both? To do so, he’ll have to face a spectral being.
And his own destiny.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
I write all romance, but some sub-genre: ménage, futuristic space romp, paranormal, shifter, historical. But most of what I do is contemporary.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Um…coming up with ideas is so easy. Too easy, lol! I take a drive and get my mind doing something different, listen to country music, and voila! Getting those ideas and organized into cohesion and then typing them up is the harder part.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Making sure my idea is filled out and feels real. I want the reader to have a “take-me-away” feeling while reading my books, so it must seem like an actual experience. That’s most important to me.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote Impatient Passion in September 2002. Loved that book! It was published by Liquid Silver Publishing February 14, 2003.

Her Cadillac Cowboy by Rue Allyn @RueAllyn #RLFblog #Contemporary RomanceWelcome 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.

Her Cadillac Cowboy by Rue Allyn

Genre Short Contemporary Romance with Comedic elements
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Definitely R rated
A rich cowboy with a classic Cadillac—sounds like the stuff of dreams for a small-town Texas girl, right? Wrong! Josh McKinley and his classic car have been Sara Carson’s nightmare since Josh left ten years ago. Now the cowboy and his Caddy are back. Sara must choose between loyalty to her family and love for the one man she shouldn’t want.
Is the key to Sara Carson’s heart the Cadillac that their families have been feuding over for ten years? Or will Josh McKinley have to give up the car he treasures in order to win the woman he loves?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes, I also write historical romance (medieval, regency era, and Victorian/western). I’ve done some erotica in the past and while those books are still available, I no longer write to that audience specifically.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I come up with ideas all sorts of ways, but mostly I use ‘What if’. For example “What if a woman wanted to run her family car dealership but her father objects?’ That might be the spark for Her Cadillac Cowboy.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Oh heavens, it’s all important. What do I like most? I like drafting most, where I get to discover the story.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first romance in 1996. It was a really lousy book, so don’t ever expect to see it in print.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Red
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Very smooth cotton
Ocean or mountains? Ocean

Party life or evening at home? Quiet evening at home
Dogs or cats? “Cats rule, dogs drool.”
