Kristina Knight, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.
Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write contemporary romance, filled with heart, heat, and (of course) happily ever after.
How do you come up with ideas?
Sometimes an idea comes from a snippet of a conversation I’ve overheard (I’m an expert eavesdropper!), sometimes from a TV show or movie, and sometimes characters just plot right into my brain without any warning at all.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
The creating part. I love developing an idea or character and then taking that idea or character and putting him (or her) into the absolute worst situation…and seeing what happens from there!
When did you write your first book?
The summer between 5th and 6th grade. My friends and I decided we’d write books that summer. I decided to write a girl power version of the Three Musketeers. They gave up about midway through the first afternoon, but I’ve been writing ever since.
Leather or lace? Leather (lace itches!)
Black or red? Black (because, leather!)
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Ooh…satin, please!
Ocean or mountains? Ocean, all the way!
City life or country life? Country, although I’d like to be close enough to the city to drive in for special dinner or events.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home – with someone special, of course!
Dogs or cats? Dogs! Snuggly puppies, lazy elder-dogs…they’re my favorites!
Tell us about Christmas in a Small Town
Running out on her wedding was the best decision ever!
A cheating fiancé sends Camden Harris fleeing to her grandparents’ home in Missouri. When her ex follows, determined to win her back, Camden makes a deal with neighbor Levi Walters: they’ll pretend to be in love and she’ll support his plan to buy her grandparents’ land.
The boy from her childhood has grown up into an impressive man. His charm, good looks and sweet gestures make it difficult for Camden to remember this is fake. And Levi’s kisses only confuse her more.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Kristina Knight Social Media
Once upon a time, Kristina Knight spent her days running from car crash to fire to meetings with local police–no, she wasn’t a troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took her all over the United States, writing about everything from a serial killer’s capture to the National Finals Rodeo. Along the way, she found her very own Knight in Shining Cowboy Boots and an abiding love for romance novels. And just like the characters from her favorite books, she’s living her own happily ever after.
Kristina writes sassy contemporary romance novels; her books have appeared on Kindle Best Seller Lists. She loves hearing from readers, so drop her a line!
