Do It Write: Where Aidee Ladnier writes @aideeladnier #RLFblog #Paranormal #ShiftersAidee Ladnier, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Before we talk about your office, please tell us about your latest book.

Wolf Around The Corner by Aidee Ladnier

Genre: Paranormal, Shifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Frank’s family taught him that his wolf was dangerous, unwanted. Now his best friend’s brother wants him in bed and on stage. But giving into his wolf’s need for love could risk the quiet life Frank has created for himself—and his heart.
Settled in the small town of Waycroft Falls, Frank is content to be a lone wolf among the white picket fences and dollar book bins until he finds himself sniffing his best friend’s brother. Tom smells like hot apple pie and his Broadway smile has Frank lolling his tongue. But when the visiting actor learns Frank’s secret and plies him with hot kisses to get him to star in his play, Frank can’t help but wonder if Tom is only acting.
Tom ran away from family obligations to be a Broadway star. If he could make it there, he could make it anywhere…but he didn’t. Trudging home to Waycroft Falls to open his sister’s new performance space brings him face to face with a werewolf—a werewolf that would be perfect for Tom’s shoestring production of Beauty and the Beast. Staying in Tiny Town USA would be worth it if he can somehow convince the sexy wolf to expose his furry condition on stage and howl privately in Tom’s bed.
Wolf Around The Corner, a paranormal semi-finalist in Passionate Ink’s 2017 Sexy Scribbles Contest, is a full-length fairytale romance with a side of wolf shifter. If you like your romance with gorgeous men, humor, and small town magic, you’ll love Wolf Around the Corner! Buy your copy now and settle in to watch the drama unfold!
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a preteen, but not always publishing. I began publishing romance in 2012 with a short story. I still love to write short stories and even flash fiction. If you’re interested in short stories, I have a number of them for free on my website at
What was your first published book?
My first published short story was The Applicant which has since been expanded into a novella and published by Dreamspinner Press. In it a lonely roboticist has a particularly stressful day dealing with a rampaging teddy bear robot, a time traveler from the future, and several applicants who want to become his new research assistant.
Tell us about your writing space or home office.
I love my little writing desk. It’s my haven and my most productive space. Here’s a picture!
Anything special about your space?
I absolutely love my poster of the Hero’s Journey. I studied Joseph Campbell’s monomyth in college and this poster is a whimsical look at how a character crosses out of the ordinary world and into the hero realm. The poster was created by Ryan Dunlavey in conjuction with his graphic novel Action Philosophers written by Fred Van Lente. The poster is sadly no longer for sale, but here’s a closer look at it:
What do you love most about that area?
It’s located in my guest bedroom so it gets lots of natural sunlight but there’s a lamp for nighttime writing as well. My cats will come in to enjoy the sunshine and stay for a cuddle as I write.
What would like to change about your home office?
I’m thinking of moving my desk into my library. I have a big wide windowseat that’s just the perfect height for my desk (and if I get tired I can sack out among my books!). The library is actually a repurposed dining room. Since I already have a perfectly good breakfast nook for my four person table, I thought I’d just build some bookshelves and make a library. As you can see in the picture, the window seat is actually a cedar chest I got as a wedding present from my cousin.
What’s the last book about writing that you read?
Verbalize: bring stories to life and life to stories by Damon Suede. I love Damon’s writing style and this was a fun read. His book emphasizes the use of action in verbs, plot and character tactics. His point of view from theater and screenwriting was refreshing and shined a light on fiction writing that I was unfamiliar with.
What book or books about writing do you recommend for new authors?
I really like Romancing the Beat: Story Structure for Romance Novels (How to Write Kissing Books Book by Gwen Hayes. It gives a really basic, easy to understand breakdown of the romance novel. I’m also totally in love with all the thesauruses (beginning with the Emotion Thesaurus) by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi. Their website One Stop for Writers ( is also excellent.
What do you like to read for relaxation?
Everything! Depending on what day it is or what room of my house I’m inhabiting, I’ll be reading historical romance, hard science fiction, biographies, cozy mysteries, or even an epic fantasy. I can’t be tied to one genre in my reading, which probably explains why I skip around genres when I’m writing as well.
Do you have an author newsletter?
I do! I publish Aidee’s Awesome News every few months or so usually when I have a new book coming out or an appearance somewhere. And occasionally I have a mailing list only giveaway! You can sign up here:

Meet Mikhail Matheson from Wolf of Her Own by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRLet’s meet Mikhail Matheson from Wolf of her Own by NJ Walters, a new Paranormal Romance. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Let’s talk.

About Wolf of her Own by NJ Walters

Title Wolf of her Own
Genre Paranormal Romance/Shapeshifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Mikhail Matheson may be an outsider in Salvation, but he stays with the pack to be close to his sister. It has nothing to with the fact that Elise—the most fascinating woman he’s ever laid eyes on—is part of the pack. Mikhail has wanted Elise for years, but being with her could cost him his life. Soon he’ll have to decide if he’s going to leave the pack or risk it all to pursue a place at her side.
After escaping her abusive mate, Elise LaForge has made a home in Salvation with her sons. She never expected to have her emotions stirred up by the always serious and seriously handsome Mikhail. But can she finally put her past behind her and dare to move on?
When danger creeps into the pack, both she and Mikhail have to be willing to sacrifice everything to have a chance at love.

Introducing Mikhail Matheson

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 62 But because he’s a werewolf he looks in his 40s.
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Sitka, Alaska
Profession: Former wilderness guide, now a furniture maker.
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Werwolf
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
*shrugs* I’m 6’3″ and about 240lbs. My hair is dark brown with streaks of gray, which I blame on my much younger sister. My eyes are green.
Tell us about yourself, please.
I spent most of my life in the Alaskan wilderness guiding humans and trying to stay out of the way of my packmates. I would have left years ago if it weren’t for my sister. When she was forced to run from the pack I followed her to Salvation, North Carolina. I liked the pack she joined, so I stayed.
Who is the significant other in your life?
That would be Elise LaForge, the most amazing woman you’ll ever meet. She makes a hell of a fantastic pie, too.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I don’t have a whole lot of formal education beyond the basics. I went to work from the time I was a teenager, guiding folks through the Alaskan wilderness. I’ve read and learned whatever I’ve needed to in order to survive.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I never needed much. I prefer to spend most of my time outside. Never had a home of my own, as I travelled a lot and wanted to stay close to my sister to watch out for her. I’ve always made money and banked it, so I have more than enough to live on. I’m not afraid of hard work. I want more now that I have my sights set on Elise LaForge. A man wants to give his woman whatever she wants or needs. Problem is, she already has pretty much everything she could want, except me. She needs someone to love her.
Are you close to family?
The only family I’m close to is my sister, Rina. I was never close to my parents, even less so after I found out they tried to make my sister mate with a wolf while I was away, forcing her to run. Needless to say, there won’t be any family reunions any time soon. I finally found Rina with the Salvation Pack. She’s happy here. I’m happy for her, but I want some of that happiness for myself.
Do you care about what others assume about you?
I’ve never cared what anyone thought of me until now. Now I care what Elise thinks. I want her to love and accept me and know that I see the amazingly strong and sexy woman she is, even if she doesn’t always see it herself.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
Hell yes, I can keep a secret. I’m a werewolf. I don’t exactly run around telling people that. An even bigger secret is my relationship with Elise. I don’t care who knows, but she does. She worries about her sons and how they’d react if they found out about us. And since her eldest son is the pack alpha that could lead to some trouble. The secret won’t last long. It can’t in a pack as close-knit as this one.
Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?
The person who could hurt me the most is Elise. I don’t know what I’d do if I ever lost her. A wolf isn’t meant to be alone, but there is no other woman in the world for me but her. I waited over sixty years to find her. I never understood just how lonely I was until I met her. She’s my heart.

Cry Me a River by Livia Quinn

Genre Paranormal romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Welcome to Destiny, home to the Paramortals since…well, forever… where human neighbors and their new sheriff live alongside shifters, dragons, vampires and a family of djinn.
Just don’t tell the humans.
Amid the strange goings on in his new hometown, Sheriff Jack Lang organizes a search for Tempest Pomeroy’s brother. Although Jack glimpsed her supposed supernatural talents in the form of lightning bolts aimed directly at him—special effects, had to be—nothing will keep him from doing his job to protect the town’s residents, his daughter, and even the trouble-making Tempe.
In the course of the investigation, lies and suspicions cloud their mutual attraction, but Storm Witch Tempe’s new ex-Navy pilot beau vows to learn everything about this quirky town.
Everything? Like a massive rumble of thunder, her family secrets—including her brother’s djinn nature—shake things up. Sure, Jack may stick around to finish his investigation, but once he knows all about the supernatural aspects of the town…? Well, wouldn’t it be just like a man to exit a relationship when he finds out a woman has a few little secrets?
Because in the town of Destiny, the burgeoning, unpredictable supernatural whips up a massive whirlwind of everything.
