Read Chasing Ginger by Marie Lavender @marielavender1 #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticComedy #BillionaireRomanceMarie Lavender, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Chasing Ginger.

Chasing Ginger by Marie Lavender

Genre Steamy Romantic Comedy, BBW Romance, Billionaire Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.

This is not the resume Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.

Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.

And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.

So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?

As for Lance, he believes he’s lucky to have found Ginger. But can he convince her they should go for it?

With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?

(Content Warning: Watch for foul language, steamy scenes, and a pesky yet messy ability to choke on your dinner while laughing. If you’ve come expecting just a lighthearted, slapstick romance, you may not get that here. The author approaches sensitive topics in the best way she knows how. Just be prepared for all the feels to be deeper than usual for this genre – an emotional romantic comedy. No unruly cliffhangers, HEA guaranteed.)

Why did you write this book?

This novel came as a response to a reader’s comment when I posted a meme on social media. The concept snowballed from there, and it became the start of a six-book romantic comedy series.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Probably paranormal romance.

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

Wrath from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m in the mist of a young adult mystery story that I intend to submit to a literary journal.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Reader will see the relaunch of Magick and Moonlight, a modern romantic fantasy, as well as First Target, a romantic mystery collection. I’m not sure when my new publisher will re-release Upon Your Return, my historical romance novel, but I hope that one will be out soon too.

Relive small town memories in Sommerville Holidays by Vicki Batman @Vicki Batman #RLFblog #RomanticComedy Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Sommerville Holidays.

Sommerville Holidays by Vicki Batman

Genre: Romantic comedy short stories

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Hopes and wishes and holiday kisses…Sommerville holidays.

Story Blurb: Holiday Disaster: Days before Christmas, a librarian experiences plumbing issues and visits from Mr. Maintenance Man who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Claus.

The Littlest Angel: Two people. One ornament for the tree. Can a twosome find common ground and discover the true meaning of Christmas?

Holiday Handbag Extravaganza: Christmas Countdown is on! A hunk-a-licious customer pesters a boutique owner to locate a vintage handbag for his mother. Too bad the wedge between them is his sister, the meanest girl in town.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

I write romantic comedy mysteries (the Hattie Cook mystery series) and romantic comedy short stories.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Oh my! Every story is different. For “Holiday Disaster,” I really did have an incident when I was a single girl and dropped my contact down the drain. I had little money to buy a new one; so there was no choice but to call Mr. Maintenance Man. However, the guy wasn’t nearly as much fun as my fictional guy. In “The Littlest Angel” I based the story on a Christmas ornament a family friend gave my mom. In “Holiday Handbag Extravaganza,” I pay tribute to a favorite handbag designer, Enid Collins.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Getting the story right. I work and work before it is edited and then work some more. I confess, I’m a slow writer.

When did you write your first book?…

I began writing sixteen years ago. Wow! Time has flown by.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather-handbags. LOL

Black or red? Love red. Wear black.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, preferably soft flannel.

Ocean or mountains? Mountains.

City life or country life? City life.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home watching The Holiday Baking Championship with Handsome

Dogs or cats? Both!

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #romanticcomedyLinda O’Connor, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Perfectly Christmas by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

On the first day of Christmas, his true love said to him, “Sorry, I have to work.”

That’s the life of a surgeon, and Dr Madison Hayes wouldn’t have it any other way.

Dr Quinn Malone has another priority. In the countdown to Christmas, he needs to convince his old flame that there’s more to life – and love – than the job itself.

This time, his heart is in it for the long haul. Really.

Romantic and … complicated – it’s Perfectly Christmas!

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Builds a fire in the fireplace and cozies up with the latest issue of A Bit about Drills.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Pizza from Pizza Heaven in Strathaven. If she can get out of making dinner, she’s all over it.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

In the operating room, she’s in surgical greens. At home, it’s comfy sweat pants and an oversized sweatshirt.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s a master with a drill – it’s been a hobby for years. If it can be fixed with a drill, she’s your woman.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

She’s not a huge fan of the Secret Santa gift exchange. Buying gifts that people don’t need and want even less is not exactly her cup of tea. But she’s trying to fit into small-town Strathaven so she agrees to participate. Whose name does she pull out of the hat? None other than her old flame Quinn Malone. Groan. Now she has three weeks to make a homemade gift for him. The silver lining is that she’ll be able to use her drill – soap on a rope anyone?

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She’s used to putting patients, including children, quickly at ease.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s an early riser – all those years of 6 a.m rounds at the hospital have molded her into an early bird.

Can she use chopsticks?

Yes. She’s a surgeon with superior fine motor skills – chopsticks are a piece of cake.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee – black. Quick and easy – and it means less grocery shopping.

What apps would she have on her phone?

CPS (Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties), UptoDate, Mobile Banking, Grey’s Anatomy, Fundamentals of Surgery, A Bit about Drills

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Earrings – discrete turquoise crystals are her fav.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Her own CRV that she can pack all her belongings in – handy when she moves from small town to small town. But in Strathaven, the car stays parked in her garage, and everything is close enough to walk.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle (always).

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Perfectly Honest by Linda O’Connor

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

You never know where your words will take you…

When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s “fiancée” for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor. Sam O’Brien, aka “Dr. Eye Candy,” is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his “fiancée” helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his “fiancée” ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What makes you different from other people?

I write medical romantic comedies, and I’m also a physician. I have a whole left brain/right brain thing going on.

What is your personality type?

I’m pretty calm in emergencies which helps in my work as an urgent care doctor. I’m also a good listener, and I can be tenacious. I think you have to be somewhat tenacious and a bit competitive to get into medical school (that’s an understatement). When I have a goal in mind I work steadily to achieve it.

What was your favorite childhood game?

Red Rover. I remember playing that on the school playground and loved it. Second favourite was playing hide and seek outside on a summer evening when the whole neighbourhood was our playground.

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

Unless I’m talking to other doctors I can’t really talk about medicine, so it’d have to be about writing. I could talk a lot about that. Second would be about my sons – I’m definitely a proud mom.

What is your favorite book?

This changes, but right now I’m really enjoying and laughing out loud at David Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter mystery books. So funny!

What is your favorite meal?

Indian take-out – lamb korma – doubly so since I don’t have to cook it! More time to write.

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

I thought it’d be cool to weave medical advice in a novel to help people take more control of their health. My favourite books to read are romance novels with a happily ever after ending so I thought I’d start there. The thought of having a book on the shelf with my name as the author was pretty compelling.

What are your favorite reference books?

The Emotional Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Pugilisi and How to Market a Book by Joanna Penn

When you go to a convention, what kinds of things do you take along?

Comfortable shoes, swag, business cards, my cell phone, and my laptop so I can write while I travel, credit card for shopping :D

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

Tune out all the doubts and just write.

What are your writing goals for this year?

I’m currently working on a (drumroll please) new series, Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series. My goal is to finish all four novels this year – I’m almost done number 3 – and publish one every three months staring early in 2020. Should be fun!

Perfectly Planned by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
She has it all Perfectly Planned…
Chloe Keay is on the hunt for the perfect sperm donor, but who knew it would be this hard? So many things to consider in a father – sure height and hair color are important, but what about the real issues. How does he feel about bagpipe music? Does he buy the extended warranty? Skittles or M and Ms? She doesn’t want an average Joe. She’s narrowed it down to two candidates and has the perfect plan to pick the heir and the spare.
Staff Sergeant Rip Logan, head of the elite Tactics and Rescue Unit, has a gut feeling that Chloe Keay is trouble. She’s a sexy little spark plug who radiates innocence, but it doesn’t jibe with her suspicious behavior and probing questions. The fact that he’s attracted irritates him. What exactly is she after? And should he go with his gut or follow his heart?
Planning for love – what could possibly go wrong?

Cuffed: A Detective Goldie Locks Mystery by JA Kazimer @jakazimer #RLFblog #RomanticComedyWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Cuffed: A Detective Goldie Locks Mystery by JA Kazimer

Genre Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Detective Goldie Locks isn’t looking for just the right bed. Or any bed for that matter.
She’s on the hunt for a killer.
When she discovers the fingerprints of a once-upon-a-time lover, a man who jumped over a candlestick and out a window to leave her facing some serious trespassing trouble alone, at a crime scene, she vows to see him in handcuffs.
Jack B. Nimble has other ideas.
He threatens her adoptive family if Goldie doesn’t help him clear his villainous name, much to the chagrin of her current boyfriend and quite possibly the next mayor, Beau White, the fairest man in all the land.
Trying to prove his innocence turns out to be harder than she expected, especially when Jack refuses to aid in his defense, and instead, starts a campaign to ‘win’ her back. Goldie might be a blond, but she’s far from dumb enough to fall for his charms a second time.
Or so she tells herself every time his lips meet hers.
The deeper she plows into the rabbit hole and Jack’s soul, the more she learns about his motives for returning to the city—Destroying her perfectly crafted life.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Mystery, romantic suspense, urban fantasy, fairytales, humor
How do you come up with ideas
?…
I rub Aladdin’s lamp, ask my fairy Godmother, and when neither of those work, which is 99% of the time, I ask myself, what stories do I want to read?
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Entertaining readers. Makes someone who might be having a bad day, smile.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first book in 2007.

FUN

Leather or lace? I’d love to say leather and sounds cool, but lace is much more me.
Black or red? Black. Mostly because I am terrible at color coordinating my clothes.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, or else my pups slide around in bed all night.
Ocean or mountains? Ocean. No contest. Though I live in Colorado. Go figure.
City life or country life? City life. Oddly I like hearing sirens at night. Helps me sleep.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, reading.
Dogs or cats? Both. Though I do tend to favor my dogs more.
