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.

FUN

Black or red? Black

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

City life or country life? Country (but don’t ask me to do the gardening)
Party life or evening at home? Quiet evening at home
Dogs or cats? “Cats rule, dogs drool.”

Cuffed: A Detective Goldie Locks Mystery by JA Kazimer @jakazimer #RLFblog #RomanticComedyWelcome 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.

Cuffed: A Detective Goldie Locks Mystery by JA Kazimer

Genre Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Detective Goldie Locks isn’t looking for just the right bed. Or any bed for that matter.
She’s on the hunt for a killer.
When she discovers the fingerprints of a once-upon-a-time lover, a man who jumped over a candlestick and out a window to leave her facing some serious trespassing trouble alone, at a crime scene, she vows to see him in handcuffs.
Jack B. Nimble has other ideas.
He threatens her adoptive family if Goldie doesn’t help him clear his villainous name, much to the chagrin of her current boyfriend and quite possibly the next mayor, Beau White, the fairest man in all the land.
Trying to prove his innocence turns out to be harder than she expected, especially when Jack refuses to aid in his defense, and instead, starts a campaign to ‘win’ her back. Goldie might be a blond, but she’s far from dumb enough to fall for his charms a second time.
Or so she tells herself every time his lips meet hers.
The deeper she plows into the rabbit hole and Jack’s soul, the more she learns about his motives for returning to the city—Destroying her perfectly crafted life.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Mystery, romantic suspense, urban fantasy, fairytales, humor
How do you come up with ideas
?…
I rub Aladdin’s lamp, ask my fairy Godmother, and when neither of those work, which is 99% of the time, I ask myself, what stories do I want to read?
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Entertaining readers. Makes someone who might be having a bad day, smile.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first book in 2007.

FUN

Leather or lace? I’d love to say leather and sounds cool, but lace is much more me.
Black or red? Black. Mostly because I am terrible at color coordinating my clothes.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, or else my pups slide around in bed all night.
Ocean or mountains? Ocean. No contest. Though I live in Colorado. Go figure.
City life or country life? City life. Oddly I like hearing sirens at night. Helps me sleep.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, reading.
Dogs or cats? Both. Though I do tend to favor my dogs more.

Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #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.

Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Daniel Goodman is one of a set of triplets—natural, identical triplets, a rare kind of birth. He is a serious man, often feeling estranged from his wild and carefree brother Jonah and his free-spirited parents. He’s also distanced from his other brother Mark, a genius who might or might not realize that he’s unlike most other people and doesn’t seem to care.
Daniel is a man on a mission. For years he has striven for perfection, fighting for the pinnacle of achievement in his world of academia—Headmaster of Westover Academy. Westover, established before the American Revolution, is still one of the most prestigious schools in the country. They accept only boys whose parents fit a certain mold and only those teachers who hold to a stringent set of mores, on and off campus. Jonah considers his brother a prig. Daniel sees himself as doing his best to serve his students. How much better can he serve them as headmaster? That is what he seeks to find out.
Suddenly, into his cut and dried, strictly black and white 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. Bad enough that she’s enrolled her son in Westover Academy under false pretenses. More, she runs the town’s most disreputable bar. Worse, much to Daniel’s dismay, he finds himself 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.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
As Dee S Knight and within erotic romance I write contemporary and paranormal. I’ve also written a couple of ménage space romps. I write under two different names also, one for sweeter romance and under the third name, all ménage, including historical and shifters.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I’ve often wondered how authors don’t come up with ideas. But the easiest way for me is to go for a drive and listen to country music. If I can’t come up with a new story idea doing those two things, I’m seriously out of it. 😉
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
The most important part is developing the idea, getting it organized in my mind. The hardest part is actually sitting at the keyboard and writing. I’m sure I’m not alone in that, but it’s greatly annoying. I’ve tried the software that allows me to talk but my brain didn’t play well with it.
When did you write your first book?…
It’s hard for me to imagine, but my first book, Impatient Passion, came out on Valentine’s Day 2003. I loved that book. The words just flowed (mainly because I didn’t really know what I was doing) and writing was easy. I formulated the idea, wrote it and submitted it in one month. I’d like to do that again!

Wrath and Mercy – Sins of the Virtuous Book 5 by Faye Hall @FayeHall79 #RLFblog #HistoricalRomanceFaye Hall, 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.

Wrath and Mercy – Sins of the Virtuous Book 5 by Faye Hall

Genre Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Would you show mercy to the lover who deserted you?
Finley Helmer thought he had it all when Elina invited him into her bed. He thought he found passion and love beyond compare. Instead he was thrown into a life of smuggling black opals, drugs and aboriginal slaves. When he was charged with murder, he fled town to escape the charges, vowing to return and ask his lover why she’d handed him over to the police.
Elina Clemence was ripped away from her home and the man she loved and brought to Australia to start her life anew. Her father promised her beauty and opportunity. What she found was a cruel and abusive business partner, and a step-daughter who wanted to destroy her.
Despite the constant accidents following her and threatening her life, Elina sets herself up as a profitable shipping tycoon, with control over most of the towns supply. Despite her powerful position, her heart still ached for the man she once loved who disappeared from her life without a trace.
Finding themselves passionately reunited, Finley and Elina discover the cruelty that tore them from each other. As they search for answers, they uncover the unrelenting wrath and vengeance of an opium addict who will stop at nothing until she has possession of the black opals she thinks they are hiding.
Will their love for each other allow them forgiveness, or will they fall victim to the horror that seems to be following them?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
No, I only write Historical Romance.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Most of my characters are based on people I’ve known throughout my life. Some ideas also come from my own family’s history when they moved to Australia.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
I love that I get to portray Australian history to my readers. It’s such a beautiful country, with such a rich and romantic history and I really want to bring that out in my stories.
When did you write your first book?…
I was a sixteen year old kid still at school. My English teacher told me I would never write anything good enough to publish and I wanted to prove him wrong.

Faye’s passionate stories combine controversial subjects and provocative encounters as her characters struggle to survive the lifestyle in early rural townships throughout Australia. She explores slavery and abortion, drug addiction and murder, as well as forbidden love and passionate affairs of the heart.
When she’d not writing, Faye enjoys sharing a bottle of wine with her husband in their ever-growing garden, and encouraging the varied interests of their combined family of nine children.

Consenting Adults by PE Kavanagh @pekavanagh #RLFblog #romancePE Kavanagh, 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.

Consenting Adults by PE Kavanagh

Steamy contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Rated R
Three weddings.
Two betrayals.
One secret identity.
Tyler Diamond is a legend in the tech world. A man with limitless access to wealth, power, and any information he wants. At a wedding full of celebrities, he can’t look away from the striking woman he’s never seen before. She is a flash of neon in a black-and-white world.
Talia Pemberton is used to the attention. Sticking out is her superpower. But she will do anything to protect the secret life she’s successfully hidden for years. Including lying to the most intriguing man she’s ever met.
Over the course of three weddings, two holidays, and a cross-country courtship, Tyler and Talia move from strangers, to friends, to lovers. Their worlds entangle with an intensity that surprises them both.
It might have been fate that brought them together. From the first moment, it was clear something extraordinary would happen between them. Choosing a relationship that would change them both, irreversibly, required clear consent. Will they give it?
If you love an opposites attract story and are looking for smart, sexy, diverse characters in a layered, emotionally-gripping story, Consenting Adults will answer your call.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
All my books are contemporary romances. Occasionally, they will include a splash of suspense or a sprinkle of fantasy. It’s a representation of how I see the world. Love, excitement, and magic feature prominently. My nonfiction writing, which includes essays and articles, leans more toward the inspirational and educational.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Most of my stories have come through dreams. For whatever reason, my characters love to wake me up! It usually takes a significant amount of massaging to turn a wild dream into a realistic romance, however, and in that journey, all the important subtleties are revealed.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
I believe the creative process and making art is one of the greatest healing forces we have access to. My writing began as an attempt to sort out the conflicting, and often painful, thoughts I was having. All these years later, it helps me to make sense of the incomprehensible and remake the world in a way that makes me happy.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first book during NaNoWriMo of 2012 and it was published two years later. Before that point, I had never considered that I could write fiction of that length. It was a dare, that I surprised myself by winning.

FUN
