Daelyn Torres is determined to break free from her over-protective brother. Born a demon, she knows little of the world outside her home and work. A chance blind date promises adventure and perhaps a walk on the wild side. But her night on the town takes a deadly turn when she is gravely injured and left to die. A handsome, mysterious stranger comes to her rescue and brings with him a passion she has never experienced.

A dark guardian sent to investigate a series of missing person cases, vampire Ky Robinson is ready for anything, except the insatiable desire that engulfs him when he meets Daelyn. He senses their destiny is intertwined and vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe. The only problem: demons and vampires go together like fire and ice.

Daelyn never believed in things that went bump in the night but is more than willing to be seduced by the sexy vampire who marks both her body and soul. Will Ky be able to keep them both alive long enough to prove that vampires and demons can be so much more than friends?

Brenda Sparks author of Alpha Revealed, shares a #TechTip for passwords @brenda_sparks #RLFblogBrenda, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We want to hear your tech tip, but first, please tell us about Alpha Revealed.

Alpha Revealed by Brenda Sparks

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Natasha Peterhoff is the luckiest vampire in the world. Having pined over the sexy, but aloof Vladimir Starikovich for centuries, her feelings are reciprocated when the pair are drawn to each other the night of her brother’s wedding. Unfortunately, the stark light of day dawns, and the couple parts ways.
Back in Siberia, Vlad is overcome by doubts. Not only will Natasha’s brother kill him, but his own past is reason enough to keep her away. He vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe, even it if means never seeing her again.
With so many reasons to stay apart, will the ties that bind be strong enough to pull them together?

Tech Tip

Happy Father’s Day! Here is a tech tip that I hope everyone, not just fathers, will find useful. I know Vladimir, the hero in Alpha Revealed, would have appreciated hearing this tip, especially after his baby was born.

Many of us have video cameras attached to our Wi-Fi. Perhaps you have a video doorbell or security camera. Maybe you there is a baby monitor in your home with video capabilities. If you have any of these, you must be careful. Hackers are using these cameras to spy on homeowners. You’d be amazed what hackers can find out about you just by watching and listening in.

A strong password is the key to keep the hackers out of your life, whether it’s a website you frequent, your social media, or even the video camera in your home. Most everything we do now requires a password, and while it can be tricky to memorize a bunch of complicated passwords, it’s necessary to keep you and your family safe.

Here are some tips for creating a password:

Make it long — This is the most important factor. Make it at least 15 characters or more if possible.

Use a mix of characters — Use a combination of uppercase and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols.

Avoid common substitutions — Password crackers are hip to the usual substitutions. Whether you use DOORBELL or D00R8377, a brute force attacker can hack your account/device easily.

Don’t use sequential letters and/or numbers —For example, avoid ABCDEF or 456789, and do not use sequential keyboard paths either (like qwerty).

Long, complicated passwords can be difficult to memorize. Try stringing what seem like random words and numbers together then make a sentence to help you remember them. For example, if your password was Battery10horsescar, you might remember it by memorizing the sentence, A battery of 10 horses pulled the car.

Of course, you can also use an app to store your passwords, eliminating the need to memorize anything. Password manager apps can be downloaded onto your phone. Many will give you the ability to store passwords, as well as, user login info and credentials. Many will also sync the information across your desktop, mobile devices, and browsers. Some password manager apps can even allow you to share a login information with another person. These apps can be a time saver by storing all your information in one place. You don’t need to go hunting for a password, because it’s there at your fingertips with a press of a button.

Don’t make it easy for the hackers. Do whatever you must to keep you and your family safe. I know Vladimir would.

Two organizing tips from Brenda Sparks, author of Alpha Revealed @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceBrenda Sparks, welcome to Romance Lives Forever.

Happy Mother’s Day! Here are some tips that hopefully not just mothers but everyone will appreciate. I know Natasha, the heroine in Alpha Revealed, would be the first to appreciate the tips I’m sharing today, especially when she was trying to keep her pregnancy from her family.

Two Tips for Family

Don’t keep secrets. They have a way of coming out in the worst way possible.

Be accepting. Your family member might not do things the way you would or share your viewpoint, but that doesn’t make them wrong. Accept them and learn to appreciate the differences.

Two Tips for Organizing

Make a To-Do list. Nothing keeps a person on track like a list of chores that can be referenced again and again. Personally, I LOVE crossing off each item as it is completed.

Set reminders on your phone on computer. I can’t begin to tell you how many times my phone has kept me from forgetting to do something.

Kiss Me, Kill Me by Sayara St Clair @SayaraStClair #RLFblog #NewRelease #ParanormalRomanceSayara St Clair, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Kiss Me, Kill Me.

Kiss Me, Kill Me by Sayara St Clair

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Oh, Universe…how bad dost thou suck? Let me count the ways.

Near demise by molesting dudes in an alleyway.

Near demise by marsupial-induced car crash.

Near demise by colleague/psycho stalker.

Near demise by rogue vamps in that other alley.

Really, I should have taken my boyfriend up on his offer to turn me. But choosing to endure a liquid diet for all eternity is a weighty proposition. I mean, life hasn’t been all blood and crumpets for Greg since becoming a creature of the night. Then there’s the case of the only other vampire I know, who didn’t exactly take her turning like a champ.

Door Number One: retain my humanity.

Door Number Two: embrace vampirehood.

Being a scientist, I analyse things. Down to the bone. The sample size of two vampires, combined with the lack of available literature on humanity versus vampirehood, makes it impossible to accumulate any meaningful data upon which to base my decision.

While I’m busy weighing the pros and cons, the universe serves up one more heaping helping of suck–in the form of a formidable opponent determined to freeze me out (literally) and snatch away my man.

This is SO gonna hurt. I should have opted for Door Number Two sooner…

Why did you write this book?

This is the second book in the Blood Kissed series. There was more of Ana and Greg’s story to tell after completion of the first book.

It’s high time Ana stands up to the demon from her past. When I say demon, I mean stepmother. She also has to face new demons–real ones–of the fanged persuasion. And she needs to address this little thing: “To turn or not to turn.” Now that’s a question, isn’t it?

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. All the different types of romance.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

At the moment, my favorite is Mal Ericson from Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series. The guy is off-the-wall crazy, but he’s hilarious and has a good heart. Love him!

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m world building for a brand new series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I expect it’ll be a while in the making, but the next book will be a paranormal romantic comedy from the new series. I’ll be venturing into the realm of fantasy. As a writer, I’ve not ventured there before, so I’m looking forward to the new experience.

Sayara St Clair Social Media

If someone told a young Sayara St Clair that one day she would be an erotic/paranormal-romance-writing Aussie expat living in Thailand, she would have snort-laughed and yelled, “You. Be. Crazy!”
If someone told her the same thing now, she would not yell, only nod solemnly. Because that actually happened.
Sayara has a science degree, with majors in both microbiology and biochemistry. Working in the fields of serology and tissue banking, she got to do lots of cool and sometimes slightly weird stuff. She was employed as the manager/buyer for furniture retail stores, where she had a chance to unleash her inner interior decorator. (Interior design is one of her great passions.) And for a time, she taught English to students in Asia. (Hanging about in a roomful of extremely loud, pint-sized humans is not one of her great passions.) She has written ads for TV, print and radio; real estate brochures; website copy; and a screenplay. Now she’s writing fiction and has discovered it’s her favorite thing to do. She’s also learned that writing sultry romances is so much more fun than writing dry old scientific journal articles. No one has sex in scientific journal articles. Not the ones she wrote anyway.
When not writing, she may be most commonly found in a horizontal position reading, in the kitchen baking, in the garden planting, or somewhere else singing at the top of her lungs. She loves music and is prone to spontaneous bouts of dancing.
With regards to vampires and chocolate: she bites one on a daily basis and has had a lifelong obsession with the other. And she’s not telling which one’s which.
