Romance or Fantasy with vampiric characters.

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

Read the new vampire romance Fin d'Espoir by Lisabet Sarai @LisabetSarai #RLFblog #NewRelease #VampireRomanceA former slave turned vampire by his cruel mistress struggles against his nature in Lisabet Sarai’s new paranormal romance, Fin d’Espoir. Etienne de Rémorcy has vowed to never again taste human blood, but he cannot resist the young couple who offer not only their bodies but also their hearts.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Fin d’Espoir.

Fin d’Espoir by Lisabet Sarai

Genre: Bisexual Paranormal Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Bitter and alone, Etienne de Rémorcy haunts the forest around the ruined plantation of Fin d’Espoir. He has sworn to never again taste human blood. Then a fierce storm and a runaway horse bring a slender, raven-haired beauty to his lair. When she begs him to take her, he cannot resist.

Madeleine and Troy hope that a carefree vacation in tropical Jamaica will reignite their faded passion. On a mountain trail ride, Maddy’s horse bolts, carrying her deep into the jungle. Injured and lost, she is saved by a giant of a man whose mere presence kindles unbearable desire. By the time she understands his dark nature, it is far too late for her to escape.

When Maddy returns, Troy finds her greatly changed : ravenous in bed, restless and disturbed otherwise. The elegant stranger he meets on the beach holds the key to her transformation – and soon has seduced Troy as well.

Tortured by his conscience, Etienne is determined to set the young couple free. But their love may be his last hope for redemption.

Why did you write this book?

Fin d’Espoir was inspired by a trip I took to Jamaica, many years ago. On one tour, we visited a ruined plantation buried deep in the jungle. The brooding atmosphere of the place made a deep impression on me. When I decided I wanted to write a vampire character distinctly different from the typical Caucasian, Dracula-inspired blood drinker, that experience came back to me. The book includes other scenes from that journey as well, including a midnight swim in the lava-rock grottoes of Negril.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read a wide variety of genres, so it’s quite difficult to pick just one. However, if you force me to do so, I think I’d select science fiction. I’ve been reading scifi since I learned how to make out the words on the page, starting with the Mushroom Planet books, moving on to Heinlein and Bradbury, branching out to Philip K. Dick, Neal Stephenson, Octavia Butler, Sherri Tepper, and more. The explosion of books by indie authors offers a wealth of new and exciting choices in the genre.

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

That’s another tough question! I don’t think I can provide an absolute answer, since I’m very influenced by what I’ve read lately. One character who comes to mind is Miss Alexia Tarabotti from Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series. I tend to like female characters with strong opinions who aren’t afraid to speak their minds.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am currently writing the second to last chapter of a novel called The Pornographer’s Apprentice, first book in a steam punk erotica series, The Toymakers Guild. I write a good deal of out-and-out erotica, as well as erotic romance. This book is a lot of fun – in fact it features a smart, strong heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind! But I probably won’t be featuring it on Romance Lives Forever.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’d like to bring out a sequel to my MM science fiction romance The H-Gene, which was released a few months ago. It’s the first book in a series called After the Plague. I also plan a mature romance for the holidays, possibly reprising the 60+-aged characters from Gray Christmas.

Read the series: Seducing the Darkness by Shiela Stewart @shielasue#RLFblog #Paranormal romanceNo one is safe when the sun is gone in Shiela Stewart’s Paranormal Romance, Seducing the Darkness. Not even the vampires.

Shiela Stewart, 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 series.

Seducing the Darkness in the The Darkness series

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

An outcast by her kind, Trinity Ford has learned to live on her own…not an easy thing to do when you’re a vampire.

Trinity was once a fragile girl. Being taken by a powerful vampire prince changed her. Discovering him in the arms of another woman changed destiny. Alone, she’s learned fast how to be tough, how to survive, and how to protect the people in her city from the evil that lurks in the dark. She was managing just fine, until Basil walked back into her life.

Basil Hawthorn has been the reigning prince of vampires since banishing his father to the Realm of Dark Mystics decades earlier. When a prophetic dream makes him realize Trinity’s life is at risk, he decides the only way to save her is to push her away. Doing so is not easy. Trinity is the only woman he has ever loved, ever will love, and he can’t seem to let her go.

When rumors arise of a plan to raise the King and blot out the sun, both Trinity and Basil know they must do everything to stop it. Even if it means working together. Despite the betrayal and the threat, they find themselves drawn to each other. Love has no boundaries, especially in the face of danger. But will they be able to stop the ritual before it’s too late?

Or will the darkness capture them both?

Which book is this in the series?

Seducing the Darkness is the first book.

How many books do you plan for the series?

Originally it was only going to be a single book with everything wrapping up in Seducing the Darkness. After my publisher read it, she asked if I might consider making it a series. She was thinking 3 books. I couldn’t let the characters go, so 8 were created.

How many books are completed?

All 8 books are complete. I was writing one book while editing the other so that all 8 could be released in one year.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

The heroine is Trinity Ford and she’s a vampire as is the hero, Basil Hawthorn. He is also the Prince of vampires. They are the lead in the first six books, then make guest appearances in the last two.There are also 3 other characters that are key in every book.

What is the overall theme in this series?

Trinity isn’t your normal vampire. She wants to keep her city safe by taking out as many bad vampires as she can. But when a ritual is performed to blot out the sun over Jacob’s Cove, she has her hands full. Each book introduces a new character that are love interests for the 3 other main characters. With the sun gone, the vampires are taking over. Trinity, Basil and the other characters try to save what humans haven’t fled the city while trying to bring the sun back. In the midst of all the mayhem, love blooms adding brightness to a very dark situation. Each book takes up where the previous ended.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Seducing the Darkness Bk1
Desiring the Darkness Bk 2
Embracing the Darkness Bk 3
Charming the Darkness Bk 4
Tempting the Darkness Bk 5
Penetrating the Darkness Bk 6
Consuming the Darkness A New Beginning Bk 7
Surviving the Darkness A New Beginning Bk 8

What did you like best about writing this series?

The ability to keep the hero and heroines storyline going. Unlike most other romance series books, I give the readers a look at what happens to the couples after their budding romance begins.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

To date I have 15 published books with a 16th and 17th on in editing.
Awaken the Demon. Offer the Demon. Conquer the Demon
A Taste of Humanity a 1 Night Stand series.
The Naughty Angel a 1 Night Stand series.
Discovery in Passion. Escape in Passion.

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?
