Alpha Eternal by Brenda Sparks

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Alexander Hall is a fun-loving vampire whose duty comes before all else, except maybe finding a heartmate. Discouraged when he is assigned to infiltrate a demonic compound, Alex plans on getting in and out fast, but fate has other plans. Once Alex discovers a sexy demon from his past is chosen as his guide, he couldn’t be more pleased.

Shira is a demon who likes to keep to herself, so when the demon king asks her to be Alex’s guide, she couldn’t be less pleased. Keeping the vampire from discovering demon secrets quickly becomes a fulltime job. A job she didn’t ask for and most definitely doesn’t want.

With the vampire’s desire for someone to commit his heart to and the demon looking to run as far away as possible, how will fate intervene to bring this unlikely couple together?

Are you Dating a Vampire? Advice from Kryssie Fortune, author of Claimed as Theirs #Vampire #Romance #RLFblogKryssie, welcome back to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! You have some advice for us on dating vampires. Share away!

Are you Dating a Vampire?

Ever wondered about that hot, hot guy you’re dating? The one with the smart suit and perfect hair? Is he too good to be true? Could he be a vampire?

Impossible?

Maybe not.

After a near miss with some fang, I started digging through the myths.

First, do your beloved’s eyebrows meet in the middle. That could be a sign he’s a vampire, or just bad taste on your report. However, that leads nicely into a more important fact.

Does he have a reflection? Perhaps he can’t see how his eyebrows merge. Does he have fingers? He could feel them. Any fool can buy a pair of tweezers. If he doesn’t pluck them, perhaps you should think twice. Annoying as his tendency to a monobrow is, it isn’t proof, though.

So what’s the answer??

Bling. Wear loads. Just make sure there’s some silver amongst it. Like werewolves, vampires hate it.

If you’re feeling extra sneakey, hold his hand. Is his middle finger longer than his ring finger? Add that to the monobrow and the lack of reflection, then it’s time to back off.

Still not satisfied? Take him out for a meal. Does he eat his steak blue? Or does he have meat served tartare? That’s a clue right there.

Finally, when the moon’s full, does he suggest a picnic in the woods. If so, run like hell. There’s another reason for my interest in vampires. My new book features three of them, all mated to the same feisty female.

Claimed as Theirs by Kryssie Fortune

Genre A post-apocalyptic Vampire menage adventure.

When an imposter seeks to usurp him as the rightful king, Bronte and his triad must go to war against their fellow vampires. But will a human woman prove pivotal in the coming conflict?

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie lives by the beach and loses track of time when she writes. Her days are full of dashing regency rakes, former soldiers so handsome they make her drool, and the sexiest werewolves ever. The odd vampire makes it in there too, but when he does, he’s drop dead gorgeous.
Her pet hates are unhappy endings and cliff hangers. She guarantees you won’t find either in her books. Her books sizzle with sensual heat, but story always comes before sex. Even when part of a series, her books can be read as stand-alone romance.

Read the #PNR First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #ParanormalRomance Someone’s killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead in this new paranormal romance by Seelie Kay, First, We Kill All the Lawyers.

Seelie, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about First, We Kill All the Lawyers.

First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay

Genre: Paranormal romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Someone is killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead.

Donovan Trait is a marked man. Flamboyant, stunningly handsome, and notoriously insatiable, his attitude and style belie his skills in the courtroom. No one survives a cross-examination at Donovan’s hands. His knowledge of the law and trial practice has accumulated over the years… and years, of experience. More than three hundred years. You see, when Donovan isn’t seducing judges and juries, he’s a creature of the night. And now that someone has decided that it’s time to kill all lawyers, his lust for attention has set him in the murderer’s sights. The problem is, vampires don’t die. Not easily, anyway. That’s good news for Donovan, not so much for his very human lady love, also a target of the serial killer. Will several unsuccessful attempts on his life expose Donovan’s true nature? Will the killer learn the secret that will guarantee a permanent death? Or will Donovan finally manage to put an end to the killer’s murderous spree and live happily ever after, with his lady love?

Why did you write this book?

I have wanted to write a vampire tale for some time, but had difficulty coming up with something consistent with current tropes. Finally, I decided it was time to break all the rules. After all, vampires have been around for centuries. Surely, they have evolved by now. And no doubt, they have many of the same societal problems that humans do. However, I also wanted the vampire to be a lawyer. The title came from my experience as a lawyer. I can’t tell you how many times someone would quote Dick the Butcher, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” (Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2.) They would laugh heartily, like they had just told a wonderful joke, but for me, it was great inspiration for a story. What if someone was killing lawyers?

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic suspense

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

Stone Barrington. The series by Stuart Woods.

What are you working on at the moment?

The first book in a new series, “Tillie.” Mathilda Spencer is an MI6 agent who specializes in getting royals out of sticky situations!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

“The Last Christmas” will be released December 2020. The first book in the Tillie series, “Lady Annabelle’s Perplexing Predicament” will be released in early 2021.

A vampire encounters the impossible in Tricia Schneider’s new paranormal romance inside Holidays Bite: A Limited Edition Collection of Holiday Vampire Tales. How can a woman from the 21st century know of a vampire’s dark past?

Tricia, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A Whisper from the Grave.

A Whisper from the Grave, featured inside Holidays Bite: A Limited Edition Collection of Holiday Vampire Tales by Tricia Schneider

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Josie Drummond breathes life onto canvas as she paints compelling portraits and scenes of people who lived and died long ago. The images are inspired by the brief flashes she witnesses during intensely painful migraine episodes. She thinks it’s just her creativity at work until the man in her paintings walks into her life one Christmas Eve. And if what she sees in her imagination is true then… Antonio is no ordinary man.

He’s a vampire.

Antonio is shocked to discover his undead life portrayed on canvases hanging along Jackson Square. Even more mysterious is the woman who paints them. How can a woman from the 21st century know of his dark past in a life he lived hundreds of years ago?

‘Tis the Season…for vampires!

When the days grow shorter and dusk comes earlier, we may spend our time decorating with holly and mistletoe, drinking cider, and playing in the snow. But the creatures who stalk the night are in their element—and while visions of sugarplums dance in our heads, they’re lurking in the shadows, knowing there’s nothing so delicious as a vampire’s kiss.

So settle in for a long winter’s night full of winter holiday vampire tales from these New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling authors. Including paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and dark fantasy, this collection give a whole new meaning to the term heartwarming.

Because sometimes, the holidays truly bite.

QUICK

What’s your favorite book?…

I have way too many favorites when it comes to books, but the first that comes to mind is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It’s a gothic romance classic that I always enjoy re-reading.

What’s a genre you want to write?…

While I love writing romances because of the guaranteed happily-ever-after, I would enjoy writing urban fantasy, too.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Read. Pick the type of book you want to write and read everything you can. If you want to write mystery, read 20 mystery books. Is romance your thing? Then read as much of the romance genre as you can. You can pick up a lot by simply reading in that genre. It’s a great place to start.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

The Witch and the Wolf is a paranormal romance published by The Wild Rose Press and can be found at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. http://www.triciaschneider.com/books/paranormal-romance/the-witch-and-the-wolf/

Easy

Coffee or tea? Hot tea. Lavender and honey tea is my favorite, but mostly any green tea.

Sit down dinner or drive through? Drive thru. Sit down dinners are saved for special occasions.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? Fold it. I can’t stand wrinkles.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? Sadly, my dishwasher broke three years ago. I have to hand wash dishes which is not fun with four kids who feel the need to get a new cup every time they need a drink. But, when it was working, I would unload it immediately.

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? Driving for pleasure. I love to visit new places. Sometimes I go for a ride with no destination in mind. Just going where the road takes me.

Talk or text? Talk.

Emoji or smilie? Emoji
