Know the Heroine from The Maharaja's Fake Fiancée by Alisha Kay @alishakayauthor #RLFblog #RomComA Maharaja and an actress fake an engagement in Alisha Kay’s newest romcom, The Maharaja’s Fake Fiancée. But when the lines between fake and real begin to blur, will they let long-held prejudices keep them apart?

Alisha, 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 hero, but first, tell us about The Maharaja’s Fake Fiancée.

The Maharaja’s Fake Fiancée by Alisha Kay

Genre Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

A scandal-averse Maharaja.

A free-spirited actress.

What do you get when you throw them together and add a fake engagement to the mix?

Either a match made-in-heaven or a royal disaster.

Nivy Sharma knows exactly what she needs – the freedom to be herself and follow her passion. Guess what she doesn’t need? A tailor-made husband.

When her meddlesome mother tries to throw her into the arms of a mom-approved suitor, Nivy runs the other way.

Right into the arms of the man who shattered her heart five years ago.

His Highness Veerendra Singh can recognize a pain-in-the-ass when he sees it. Especially when it falls into his arms.

Even if said pain-in-the-ass has legs that go on forever and lush lips that just beg to be kissed, Veer vows to run the other way. As he did once before.

But, when the marriage-minded princess of Tejpur sets her sights on him, Veer runs back into Nivy’s arms to propose a fake engagement.

When ‘fake’ starts to feel very real, Nivy and Veer have to decide what is important – long-held prejudices or the chance for a life with the only person they’ve ever loved.

Will this be their second chance at love or will their broken past ruin their hope for a shared future?

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Grumpy until she has her first cup of coffee.

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

Music apps

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Personal vehicle, because she can’t use public transport without being mobbed.

Read the series: Don't Forget the Dog (Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor) 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! Please tell us about your series.

Don’t Forget the Dog in the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor Series

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is second only to her skill at matchmaking!

Blaine McKinnon, owner and executive chef of an upscale restaurant in Mapleton, has an adorable Old English sheepdog named Tacos. Brogan is roped into dog-sitting Tacos at Blaine’s house. The upside is the spectacular kitchen at her disposal.

Dr. Sabrina Langfield, a newly minted doctor, is in a bind when her mom, Rue, falls and fractures her wrist. Brogan offers to help and does double-duty looking after Tacos and Rue.

Blaine and Sabrina were high school sweethearts but parted ways when Blaine pushed Sabrina to pursue a career. Sabrina hasn’t seen him since, but Rue is a huge fan and frequents his restaurant. Rue’s biggest regret is her part in Sabrina and Blaine’s break-up, and with Brogan’s help, she’s determined to get them back together. It might not be that easy – Sabrina is wary of Tacos and, more pressing, she’s decided to move a four-hour flight away to do five more years of training in emergency medicine.

Will meddlesome matchmaking, Blaine’s persuasiveness, and – don’t forget the dog – Tacos’ sweet nature be enough to convince Sabrina to stay?

Which book is this in the series?

Don’t Forget the Dog is the second book of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series.

How many books do you plan for the series?

4

How many books are completed?

3 – The third book will be released August 4, 2020. I’m currently writing the fourth with a planned release date of November 4, 2020.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Dr. Brogan Corkie is a semi-retired doctor. Her new hobbies include cooking and matchmaking! She stirs up romance and bakes up a plot to keep the couples together. Each story stands alone and overarching throughout the four books, Brogan’s heart is tangled up in romance, too.

What is the overall theme in this series?

These stories are fun and light-hearted second chance romances with happy-ever-after endings. They are set in small town Mapleton and the heroine or hero (or both) is a doctor. Sometimes all you need is a nudge in the right direction!

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

Don’t Drop the Baby

Don’t Forget the Dog

Don’t Unravel the Past

Don’t have a title for the 4th one yet :D

What did you like best about writing this series?

Throwing two people together who are reluctant to love and nudging their heads to catch up to their hearts is always fun. Throw in witty dialogue, a baby, a dog, a secret past, and Christmas shenanigans, and I was laughing as I wrote them.

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

I have written:

6 books in the Perfectly Series: Perfectly Honest, Perfectly Reasonable, Perfectly Planned, Perfectly Unpredictable, Perfectly Christmas, Perfectly Together

4 books in the In the Game Hockey Romance series: Between the Pipes, Behind the Bench, Beyond the Face-Off, Before the Whistle

1 book as part of a multi-author series set in Copper Mills: Time for the Doctor

Laugh along with a new romantic comedy series set seven years before the movie Sweet Home Alabama, by @Kris_Bock and @dougeboch #RLFblog #RomanticComedyDouglas J Eboch and Kris Bock, 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 book.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock

Genre romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (underage drinking)

Big City, Big Glamour, Big Trouble

Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

Melanie’s mother has been shoving her into every beauty pageant within twenty miles since Melanie was a toddler. Melanie is getting a little sick of it. She’s on the verge of quitting when she qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant in the big city of Mobile. The first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek, not to mention that one of the judges is a real, live New York fashion designer. The competition will be fierce. Can a “trailer trash” girl outshine the snooty debutantes?

Meanwhile, Jake and his friends go to Mobile to support Melanie – and to party in the big city. But when the pageant is cursed by disasters from cockroaches in the banquet hall to skunks on stage, the gang suspects someone is sabotaging the contest. They try to figure who’s behind it and why, but it isn’t easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they’re more than what people see on the surface?
