Romance set in modern times during present day.

Welcome Iris Blobel author of Fresh Beginnings, a new Contemporary Romance.

Why did you write this book?
I love this book. We went to the USA a few years back, travelling in a motorhome through 5 different states, having the time of our lives. After returning home, looking through hundreds of photos, I came up with the idea to turn our itinerary into a story. Fresh Beginnings was born. I hope the readers will enjoy this little journey and hopefully my love for the places we went to, is shining through.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read most genres as long it’s an interesting read – from crime, mystery, to romance, and I’ve just downloaded a historical romance. Something new for me.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jack Reacher – hands down.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve started a trilogy in “Beauty Bay”, another coastal setting. I love the beach and when we travelled along the NSW coast last year I loved the area so much, I needed to have it in one of my books – Molly and Noah, a pilot from Alaska J
What books will we see from you in coming months?
“Echoes of the Past” will be re-released later this year or early next year. But there’ll also be a book set partly in New Zealand – another travel inspired story. I’m really looking forward to releasing this book. The main character has a Maori background

My bike! I could ride for hours, and I still love riding to this day. My favorite bike as a kid was pink and white with long pink streamers on the handlebars. So girly! But as soon as I swung my leg over that seat, I had freedom and wind in my hair, and who doesn’t love that?

Memo to Miss Turner:
Audrey Turner owns Miss Turner’s School, a top-tier preschool in the posh Lincoln Park neighborhood. Her students are the children of some of Chicago’s most successful doctors, lawyers, and entrepreneurs, and these parents expect nothing short of the best.
No parent is more demanding than wealthy investment banker Dennis Delaney. Every day, Audrey receives a morning memo from him containing precise instructions for his son Cole’s care. No detail is too insignificant to escape this single father’s notice. When Dennis finds himself coping with a short-term summer childcare issue, Audrey agrees to be his temporary nanny. It’s a chance for a close view of their lifestyle, and if she can keep Dennis Delaney happy, then all the other parents should be content, too.
It’s only two weeks. Two weeks of daily contact with Chicago’s most meticulous parent – and its most eligible bachelor. Two maddening weeks of rigorously high standards and sizzling sex appeal. Audrey can handle anything for two weeks, right?

Welcome Milou Koenings, author of The Gift of Yesterday, a new sweet romance in the Sweet Christmas Kisses 4 collection.

Why did you write this book?
The Gift of Yesterday, my contribution to Sweet Christmas Kisses 4, 14-novella box set, is the fifth in the Green Pines Romance series. The hero appears in several of the previous books, and he is such a great guy, he certainly deserved a romance of his own.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, of course. I need those happy endings!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Lately, I’ve found myself fascinated by Johnny Tremain. It’s a classic we had to read in fourth grade, but I always loved the book. It’s fascinating to me how reading the same book at different stages in life can be such a different experience each time.
What are you working on at the moment?
The sixth book in the Green Pines series and another book that’s more in the women’s fiction/chick lit genre.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Right now I’m focusing on the launch of Sweet Christmas Kisses 4, and then in November, I’ll be releasing The Gift of Yesterday as a stand-alone novella, independent of the box set.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Kinky Briefs, Too by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #romanceToday’s featured book is Kinky Briefs, Too, an erotic romance by Seelie Kay.

When love and lust combine in the legal world, something kinky is bound to happen!

Boredom begets fantasy in this kinky romp through the legal world, when a young lawyer toiling away in the backroom of a law firm begins to spin steamy scenarios about lawyers in love, pushy Dominant judges, and those who serve them.

Through vivid characters and compelling stories, a wicked window into the legal world opens, forcing readers to abandon old stereotypes about lawyers and embrace a world filled with legal professionals who pursue love with passion, determination, and a touch of kink.

You’ll find yourself sticking this guilty pleasure in your backpack, purse, or briefcase, taking peeks at every opportunity to indulge in some of the hottest stories about lawyers ever written.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even blush, but one thing is for certain, you will never look at lawyers or the legal profession in quite the same way.

In fact, this book might even convince you to apply to law school!

My name is Kai Okamoto. I deal drugs. Trade escapism for cold, hard cash.
Born to a British Mother and a Japanese father, I grew up poor, hungry, and alone. Hiding from the monsters at our door. The debt collectors.
I’ve worked hard to escape my past. I’m not that frightened little boy anymore. I’m wealthy, secure, and sure of myself. At least I was, until I met Lily.
Lily is a good girl. The kind of girl I should stay away from. I should, but I can’t.
I hate lying to her, but if she finds out who I am, what I do, I won’t see her for dust.

Meet Alexander Gaines from Bedeviled: Madison Michel @madisonmichael_ #RLFblog #contemporaryWelcome Alexander Gaines from Bedeviled, a hot new contemporary romance by Madison Michael.
Age: 36
Gender: Very very male
Birthplace: California
Profession: Banker, Philanthropist and money maker
Please provide a physical description of your character.
Hmmm, that’s a tough first question. Women find me attractive – or is it my money they find so appealing? I am a marathon runner, a hockey player and a swimmer, so I have an athlete’s body that I am proud of, if I am honest. Scruffy hair, dishwater blonde, a bit of a surfer-dude look, but a cleaned up version.
Please tell us a little about your character.
I have always been smart, logical, and a bit aloof. Aloof, because I cannot let people get too close to me without learning secrets that I have been keeping since childhood. My friends from childhood, with whom I have remained close all these years, don’t even know the truth. I run a bank but I travel to California a lot for business. I lead a completely different life out there, one that I work diligently to keep separate from my Chicago life. I date lots of models, they are self-absorbed and don’t ask too many questions. But Charlotte has captured my attention and I knw she is too smart not to figure things out. I don’t want to lose her but do I dare risk my secrets to pursue a relationship?
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Charlotte is everything I have been looking for in a partner. She is smart and driven, a fellow runner even. She is lovely, delicate and strong all wrapped in a beautiful package with an adorable Boston accent. She seems to be hiding some secret of her own though. My usually logical self goes out the window when she is around. I let her get too close without knowing what she might be hiding. I cannot help it, it am bedeviled….
How does your hero dress?
You can either find me in beautifully tailored suits or running gear.
How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I am a Stanford Graduate and have an MBA from the Kellogg School of Business, Northwestern University.
Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I make no apologies for my penthouse condo – I like the private pool and convenient location to the bank. I give away a lot of money each year, funding schools, hospitals and numerous charities.
What is your character’s viewpoint on wealth? Not necessary, nice to have, important, obtain at all costs?
Wealth is not important. It just so happens I have a lot of money, but I could be happy without it too. I could start over and probably accumulate it again – not to brag. It’s just that I am a hard worker, and my brain just seems wired to problem solve.
Is he close to family?
I have a younger sister that I dote on. Aubrey is getting married this year and I love seeing her so happy. The wedding and all the parties associated with it are driving me a bit insane, but they make a great excuse to introduce the family to Charlotte.
Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?
Secrets abound in my life, and I suspect in Charlotte’s too. I intend to ferret hers out, and frankly, after all these years, I would love to share my own as well. I am not found of keeping secrets from those I love. I wonder if its possible to have true love without trust. I would rather not find out.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Maddy likes smart successful heroes and I fit that to a T, but she also recognizes that no one is perfect – well, except Maddy of course! So she created a hero with a few flaws and some room to grow and learn. Then she created a smart, sassy woman to teach me a few lessons and help me see the light.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
She tells my secrets, but you will have to read the book to find them out yourself!
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?
I believe Madison is happy writing a happy ending, resolving the big issues and watching her protagonists grow and learn. She has a good time writing those hot sex scenes too. As for most sad, I know Maddy is sad to let go and finish the book. As much as she wants to share it with readers, she grows pretty attached to us when she is creating.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think Maddy loves to write in order to create and finish something. Finishing what she starts was once a challenge for her so overcoming her obstacles was important. But I think she writes smart, contemporary romances for her readers – smart contemporary women who want a touch for fantasy to touch their reality.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
That’s an easy question. I wish she would finish the fourth book in the series. Maddy has been working on Besotted a long time and her fans want to know how the story of Tyler and Regan will end.

Her career took her all over the United States, writing about everything from a serial killer’s capture to the National Finals Rodeo.

What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
RadioMan is a master griller, so during the summer and fall months, he takes on a lot of the cooking duties. When I’m cooking, though, I like meals that taste amazing, but that aren’t hugely time consuming. No Peek Chicken is one of my favorites because it’s so easy (1 can of Cream of Chicken soup, 1 box of Chicken flavored rice, 4 boneless chicken breasts). You mix the soup and the rice, put the chicken breasts on top of them, sprinkle a little paprika and cover with tin foil to bake for a couple of hours. Perfection!
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
There are so many! We have a fab Mexican restaurant in town and their chicken fajitas are seriously amazing…I think I could eat there every day and not get tired of the food!
What’s your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?
The live streaming ones! I love following along on Twitter during reality TV (especially their finales and reunion shows)!
Describe the perfect vacation.
It’s me, RadioMan, and bebe. Warm weather, a nice beach, maybe some snorkeling, and no schedules. I’m a simple girl, really.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
I write mainly contemporary, so there isn’t a lot of time-specific research I have to do, but if I have a character who is, for example, a brain surgeon, I would read a bit about their daily lives, the kind of education they’d have. That sort of thing…and if there is a memoir out from someone in a field that one of my characters is in, that’s a must-read for me!
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Adam’s ringtone…hmm…May We All by Florida Georgia Line. Adam loves his small town life, and he would like everyone to experience it, so that song totally fits him.

This isn’t the man she married…
Jenny Buchanan never considered what “for better or for worse” meant when she married Adam Buchanan at nineteen. Six years and two little boys later, “for worse” arrives in the form of a tornado that ravages Slippery Rock and injures Adam. Now he’s a stranger to his family…and love won’t be enough to bring him back.
Only when Jenny asks him to move out does Adam become the husband she needs…but Adam isn’t the only one who’s changed. As their attraction sparks back to life, Jenny and Adam must learn what it is to grow up—and grow together—before this small-town breakup lasts forever.
