Moonlight Match by Kristina Knight @AuthorKristina #RLFblog #NewRelease #sweetromanceKristina Knight, 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.

Moonlight Match by Kristina Knight

Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings):
Aster Harrington believes in love but love doesn’t seem to believe in her. She’s hoping Goldie and Ginny, the matchmakers who’ve matched on two generations of Harringtons, can work a little love magic for her… Some call Ethan Talbot rigid, but he prefers to think of himself as prepared. Unfortunately, when he’s matched with Aster Harrington at Joy Island’s Matchmaking Week, all those carefully prepared plans go out the window. He can get back to finding a suitable wife once he’s home in New York. After all, how much damage can one week in the Bahamas do to his plans?
Why did you write this book?
I was asked to join the Resort to Romance continuity last spring, and the concept was so much fun I couldn’t say no! All the books are standalone, all are sweet romance, and they’re filled with uplifting romance, laughter, and characters you just want to root for!
What is your favorite genre to read?
It depends on my mood. I read a LOT of contemporary romance, but romantic suspense is another favorite.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Gosh, another toughie! I’m going to say Jo from Little Women because she’s a little persnickety, but she is also such a caring person.
What are you working on at the moment?
I have a couple of books going on right now. I’m working on a women’s fiction novel, set in the Mediterranean and a cowboy series (contemporary, of course!) set in Nebraska.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’m releasing my next Slippery Rock book in a couple of months and will have more details on release dates for my contemporary cowboy and women’s fiction books in a few weeks. Yay!

Her Cadillac Cowboy by Rue Allyn @RueAllyn #RLFblog #Contemporary RomanceWelcome 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.

Her Cadillac Cowboy by Rue Allyn

Genre Short Contemporary Romance with Comedic elements
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Definitely R rated
A rich cowboy with a classic Cadillac—sounds like the stuff of dreams for a small-town Texas girl, right? Wrong! Josh McKinley and his classic car have been Sara Carson’s nightmare since Josh left ten years ago. Now the cowboy and his Caddy are back. Sara must choose between loyalty to her family and love for the one man she shouldn’t want.
Is the key to Sara Carson’s heart the Cadillac that their families have been feuding over for ten years? Or will Josh McKinley have to give up the car he treasures in order to win the woman he loves?


Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes, I also write historical romance (medieval, regency era, and Victorian/western). I’ve done some erotica in the past and while those books are still available, I no longer write to that audience specifically.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I come up with ideas all sorts of ways, but mostly I use ‘What if’. For example “What if a woman wanted to run her family car dealership but her father objects?’ That might be the spark for Her Cadillac Cowboy.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Oh heavens, it’s all important. What do I like most? I like drafting most, where I get to discover the story.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first romance in 1996. It was a really lousy book, so don’t ever expect to see it in print.


Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Red
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Very smooth cotton
Ocean or mountains? Ocean
City life or country life? Country (but don’t ask me to do the gardening)
Party life or evening at home? Quiet evening at home
Dogs or cats? “Cats rule, dogs drool.”
