Meet Jonah Goodman from One Woman Only by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance Welcome Jonah Goodman from One Woman Only, a new erotic romance by Dee S Knight.

Jonah Goodman

Age: 36
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Lucky Strike, North Carolina
Profession: Mechanic
Ethnicity: Human

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m one of a set of identical triplets, though I think I’m probably the best looking of the bunch. We all have hazel eyes and black hair. Mine probably needs a trim and I’m sure I need a shave (the ladies seem to like a little scruff, you know?). I’m 6 feet two inches and I’m pretty muscular–have to be for my job, which is auto mechanic, often on the NASCAR circuit. I’m most often found in flannel shirts or tees, and rough jeans, though I can dress up when required–but I have to be required.

Please tell us a little about your character.

My brothers and I grew up with super loving parents, though a bit unconditional. My mom is a former stripper and Dad “borrowed” a bit of money from the bank where he worked when money was tight. It takes a lot to raise three boys! But for the past 28 years or so, my mom has only taken off her clothes for Dad and Dad paid his debt to society long, long ago. For all their love and good intentions, they never married, though. So growing up in our small Bible Belt town was a little hard on me and my brothers. Daniel and Mark found their peace in books and math and I’m proud as hell of the men they grew up to be. I found my way in sports (and fighting the bullies when needed), and beneath the hood of a car. They got their PhD degrees and I got my GED, but hey, we all ended up doing what we love.

Everyone thinks that I couldn’t care less about responsibility or commitment, but even I surprised myself when I filed for and was granted four patents for new car part innovations, and (get this!) starting setting crossword puzzles for the NASCAR programs. No one knows about any of that, though, and they don’t need to. I’m cool with their impressions of me–except for Kelly Shepherd. I wish she knew me well enough to see through the façade to the whole of who I am.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?

Kelly Shepherd. Damn, what a fine woman she grew into! Strawberry blond hair, big green eyes, and a figure that won’t quit. I fell in love with her when we were in junior high and then screwed up royally at the beginning of our senior year. When I left her high and dry–left my family and town, actually–she never forgave me. It probably ever would have worked anyway. Her family was the richest, most powerful in town and mine…wasn’t. But now, eighteen years after I made the biggest mistake of my life, we have a second chance at seeing what might have been had the stars aligned.

How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?

Jonah never did particularly well in school, but the man is a genius when it comes to cars, engines, and motors of any kind. He’s self-taught, although he did learn form is dad when he was young, and his Uncle Zeb when he left home and moved in with his uncle in Darlington, South Carolina. He became so accomplished, NASCAR teams seek him out routinely.

Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

Jonah has a doublewide trailer on five acres of his uncle’s property. Outside it looks like a regular old doublewide, but inside he’s tricked it out to have a chef’s kitchen, heated floors, the most modern bathroom seen anywhere, and other creature comforts. The house is kind of like Jonah himself–deceptively simple outside but much more than expectations inside.

What special skills does your character rely on?

He’s a pretty good BS thrower–part of his charm. He can talk the ladies into most anything, but lately he’s felt the need for a lot more then racing groupies can provide. And once he sees Kelly again, he knows what he wants. Getting her onto his team will take skills he hasn’t used in a while, though. Other than that, his compulsion to meet the challenges he finds in cars is a skill of sorts. It’s gotten him four patents and the chance to make it big.

Is he close to family?

He’s very close to his parents and especially close to his uncle, who is the most like Jonah in temperament and interests. Zeb owns a garage where Jonah works when he’s not on the NASCAR circuit for a season, and he has a house on a piece of Zeb’s land. The two spend a lot of time together. Jonah is not so close to his brothers, but mainly because they all live at a distance from each other. Mark and Daniel have always been the scholars and the serious brothers. Jonah feels very different.

How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption?

He is a good looking devil, and that’s the truth. When women see him, they think he’d be great in bed and a fine catch. Only the former is true because Jonah has never stayed with one woman long enough to be a “catch.” When men see him, they thing he’s a guy’s guy and would be great to have a few beers with. Both would be true.

If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would he most want it to be, and why? OR who would he most NOT want it to be, and why?

He would NOT want to see Kelly Shepherd. In fact, he’s managed to avoid seeing her for the past eighteen years, ever since he dropped her off after the homecoming dance their senior year. Now however, at his parents’ wedding, his past is slamming into his present, and he can’t avoid Kelly any longer.

Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?

Yes. For eighteen years he’s kept the secret of why he dropped out of school and left home after homecoming. No one knew–not his brothers, or parents, or even Kelly. He never said anything mostly out of embarrassment but also to protect Kelly’s reputation.

What is your hero’s breaking point?

When Jonah did everything possible to prove he was a good man and someone Kelly could rely on, she still wouldn’t give him her trust. That was when he reached the point where he wasn’t ready to do more.

How emotionally expressive is your character to others?

Everyone thinks Jonah is the brother who shows no responsibility or commitment but of the three boys, he’s the one who has stayed in touch with the others more. He’s emotionally involved with his uncle and sensitive to hos his uncle feels after the death of his wife. Jonah especially shows emotion with Daniels, new stepson, and with children in general.

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?

Well, I am the most interesting of the Goodman brothers. I work on cars–some of the fanciest and slickest cars around–and on NASCAR teams, with all that entails. My brothers teach school and do something with math. God only knows what, exactly. So who would you rather write about? Dee chose the right brother!

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?

That I’ve finally reached that point in life where I’m lonely and wanting… Just wanting. A guy who has the privilege to do what I do should be happy with life as it is, not longing for something more to fill a void. Dee could have kept my loneliness to herself.

When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?

Happiest: That I decided to go after Kelly for real and also after the biggest prize in my career. There was no holding me back.

Saddest: That I let pride and fear hold me back from doing those two things sooner.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

She’s a damn control freak and likes taking charge of her characters’ lives. It’s a power play, but a power play over make believe people in her head. How sad is that?

What do you wish your writer would write next?

A book on automotive history. Or maybe how NASCAR started. But I don’t have much hope for either.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?

Mark. He’s my bona fide genius of a brother. No one in the family really understands what he does so if she wrote his story maybe we’d find out.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?

Good job, Dee! Thanks for giving me my heart’s desire.

Where to Buy One Woman Only

As one of a set of triplets, Jonah always feels the need to make his individuality known. So where his brother Daniel is serious and completely focused, Jonah shuns commitment. Where his genius brother Mark is hailed in the scientific world, Jonah hides beneath a car, tinkering. Thing is, being different isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It takes a woman–the right woman–to make him see that a “good man” can always be a better man. One Woman Only is on KindleUnlimited.

Is It True: Cameron and Rylan (A Chance Meeting Book One) by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #gayromance #newadultWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Valerie Ullmer, author of Cameron and Rylan (A Chance Meeting Book One), a contemporary new adult M/M romance. This is a game with yes and no questions.

Cameron and Rylan (A Chance Meeting Book One) by Valerie Ullmer

Genre: contemporary new adult M/M romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Cameron Hayes believed himself to be a dedicated friend and a good son but destined to be alone. Because in his twenty-one years, he’d never fallen for anyone. Dating never appealed to him when he would rather spend a night at home. Despite his friend’s best intentions for Cameron to find a hookup for the night, he stayed at the bar as he nursed a beer. And that’s when Cameron spotted him and everything he knew evaporated with one look.

Rylan Ellis wanted one night out without complications. To forget about his overwhelming responsibilities and stress at home. He loved to lose himself in the music and ignore everyone around him. But when he happened a glance at the bar and spotted the tall, broad, and sexy-as-sin man, he felt drawn to him.

Know the Hero from Impatient Passion by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #contemporary #Romance #LoveStoryDee S Knight, 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 book.

Impatient Passion by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
On a crowded San Francisco bus, Austin Gardner is pushed back against a man. Instead of inching away, he pulls her to him. Austin is shocked at first, but then lets fate take charge. An anonymous adventure on a crowded bus might be a safe diversion in the lonely, dull life she’s living.

Know the Hero from Impatient Passion

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

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

Tyler is rarely bored. He worked long and hard to build his business and even now it captures his attention most often. When he takes a break he spends time with his sister and her son. Now of course, he’d like to be spending time with Austin, if she’d ever wake up to the fact that he loves her.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He’s a burger and fries kind of guy generally. But he lives in San Francisco, so anything he has a hankering for he can easily find. He enjoys North Beach for Italian or some of the best stir fry from Chinatown.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Tyler is the kind of man who dresses the way he wants people to view him. So at work he wears a suit. At home or out with family he wears jeans and a sweatshirt (or tee). He’s not into anything fancy or trendy—or even name brands. He just wants to be comfortable and yet neat.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, he’s pretty handy. His sister is a widow and he’s taken care of things around her house for years. Strangely, where he will make time to repair things at his sister’s, he usually hires someone to make repairs beyond tightening a screw at his own place.

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

Austin has never given Tyler the time of day. But when an unusual opportunity presented itself to get Austin alone and seduce her without revealing his identity, he grabbed it. Was it the right things to do? NO!!! Not surprisingly, Austin was not happy. Tyler had to fight to gain back any ground he’d won for her affection and it was not fast or easy coming.

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

Tyler is very close to his nephew Robbie, and he likes kids. Meeting children doesn’t faze him. He’d always thought he would marry and have a big family and it’s still something he wants.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s one of those annoying people who wakes up ready for the day. Hardly even needs a cup of coffee.

Can he use chopsticks?

Absolutely! And he uses them often because Chinese is one of his favorite kinds of food.

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

He drinks lots of coffee! He takes it black.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He’s not one for social apps or games. He would have only those things needed for business. He would probably also have something related to food—a food service or an order app for his favorite restaurants, especially for when he eats at the office.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean shaven.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

His skin is free and clear. He was never interested in tattoos and piercings or earrings are just…no.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Normally he’s too impatient for public transport so he drives to work. But for a few days he took the bus and he’s very happy that he did!

Recycle or toss?

Recycle

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author's Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1 by Laura Tolomei @LallaGatta #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanceLaura Tolomei, 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.

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1 by Laura Tolomei

Genre: Erotic, LGBT, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell finds himself alone for the very first time in his life, he cannot understand what has gone wrong. From his earliest years, he had been with at least one, if not both, of the two special people he had chosen and deeply loved. Christopher Templeton, his phase mate, and Ylianor Caldwell, his father’s heart child, have always been his reference points, the two fixed stars of his evolving destiny. His insane lust for both have further strengthened his bond to them during the apparently endless time they had already spent together. And yet…no matter how much he gets of them, it’s never enough. Not of Ylianor, his adored princess, born and raised in Black Rose, his own home. Certainly not of Chris, his beloved angel, met as a mere eight-year-old on the hills of the same Black Rose that had brought Ylianor to him. So why is he alone now?

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where The Heat, Book 6, leaves off and reconnects the princess to her amazing power. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

Why did you write this book?

Before I answer, you must be aware that this latest release of mine is a rivisitation of the first book of my most successful series, the Virtus Saga. This book was originally published as The Sex, but after 10 years from its release, I felt the need to rewrite it in my current style.

Yes, because when it was first written, I was just starting out as an author, so my style, plot construction and character building were…primitive at best :-)

This is also why the full title of this novel is Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut.

Now the story is much more fluid and the characters practically jump out at you—that’s how real they are!

To understand about Virtus Sex, you must first understand about the saga itself.

It’s an Erotic Dark Fantasy Paranormal Romance Series that Explores the Dark and Light Sides of Power and Love between Three People.

But it’s also the Making of a Trio: the Virtus Saga shows how power and love can be equally shared.

It’s comprised of 10 books in all that must be read in sequence, one after the other for the story to make sense. There are 3 amazing characters with super-powers. There’s 1 sinister pyramid, but 1,000 scorching MMF erotic scenes. Mostly, there’s 1 tense battle of good versus evil.

Now completed, this erotic dark fantasy series is continuing to receive critical acclaims. The concept of a world free of violence attracts readers. The fiery MM and MMF sex keeps them hooked to every page. Dripping passion and lust woven inside an imaginary frame ruled by magical powers, this saga is nothing more than the age-old battle of good versus evil only without the violence usually associated to such fierce struggles for survival.

The titles say it all:

The Sex

The Game

The Festival

The Leader

The Pledge

The Heat

The Princess

The Lord

Not In The Game, Deleted Scenes from The Game

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut (previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes)

The way it all starts and progresses, nothing is as it seems. Soul-mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled, until Duncan takes shelter in Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack. Ylianor has always loved Duncan, and while Duncan is attracted to her, she remains a servant—okay to bed, but not acceptable consort material. Unwilling to accept it, Ylianor vows she will do anything, even come head to head with his insufferable lover, to stay at his side.

But there is more going on than either of the three realize.

Lord Arthur Fairchild, Leader of the High Council, knows his planet Sendar is doomed unless the predestined Hero steps in and blocks the darkness threatening to take over. And even if one person alone fits the bill, Arthur does the unthinkable—not only does he summon the Hero, but the Hero’s consorts as well.

Sendar needs these three special people to become fully aware of their powers and learn how to use them together, working as one above and beyond their personal issues. They must become one whilst being three to make it through the difficult times ahead. If they do not, the Virtus which holds all of Sendar’s secret could destroy them all. And then how will their world survive?

About book 1, Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, this is the first installment, the book that starts the entire saga. As I said above, this new edition is so much richer than the original version. The characters are more vivid and three-dimensional. The plot is more linear and direct. The story is more detailed and articulate. The sex scenes are more torrid and satisfying. All in all, this new book 1 of the Virtus Saga gives readers a better grasp of the series and it’s a highly recommended starting point for all those interested in dark fantasy romance.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Mystery, crime, historical non-fiction. Interestingly enough, romance isn’t one of my favorites when it comes to reading, maybe because I prefer to imagine it on my own rather than have someone else tell me about it J

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

Sebastian Flyte from Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited is one of my favorite characters.

He’s so good-looking, rich, spoiled and self-destructive that it’s impossible not to like him. Just the way he is makes people fall under his spell, and none more than Charles Ryder do it with more passion or conviction. So much that Charles tries to save Sebastian from himself, a short-lived attempt given how uncaring Sebastian is about his fate.

That’s the charm of this character for me. He fascinates me, much as he did Charles, in spite of his shortcomings.

Or maybe because of his shortcomings.

The way Waugh portrays Sebastian, his vices open up a new world for Charles, a world he almost couldn’t imagine before his path crossed with Sebastian. And it changed his life.

Mine was also changed after meeting Sebastian Flyte. Not just because of him or of his relationship with Charles. Mostly because I learned that sometimes, when one is on the path of self-destruction, there can be no rescue no matter how much we love that person.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on Virtus Game, The Game: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 2. This is another rivisitation in the Virtus Saga, as I’m about to complete the rewriting of the second book in this series. Already, a part of this work has been released last year in Not In The Game, The Game: Deleted Scenes, Virtus Saga Plus, which contain many previously unreleased sex scenes. But Virtus Game has a broader sweep and will carry forward the story of my three heroes—Duncan Caldwell, Christopher Templeton and Ylianor Meyer—all the way to Duncan becoming the new Leader of the High Council.

Here is the blurb:

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Game but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell has to enter Cecilia Hurst’s Game of Masters and Slaves, he already knows he’ll have to play Master if he intends to retrieve the pyramid Cecilia stole from the sacred Nephis Valley. And his choice for a slave can only be Ylianor Meyer, however fiercely Lord Christopher Templeton resents her and her overpowering erotic intrusion in a trip that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone. No, make that in a love that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone! Then things precipitate into chaos and Duncan’s new responsibilities will inevitably change everything forever, their personal balance included.

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where Virtus Sex, Book 1, leaves off and explodes lust and leadership into estrangement and chaos. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Besides Virtus Game, other projects I’m working on are:

Becoming Zero, Slave For A Summer

A BDSM descent into sexual slavery for Misty Summers, a young woman with the right background but the wrong luck.

Leon’s Mark, ReScue Series Book 2

When Prince Duncan Caldwell loses his way home and knocks on a stranger’s door, looking to find shelter, he doesn’t know his life is about to change forever. Not because he can’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful woman who opens that door, but more so because she’s a stranger yet he can’t shake the feeling she belongs to him. And discovering she’s been banned from his home can’t stop the vortex of his feelings nor the truth of his world from crashing down on him.

This is just the beginning of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book starts the love and the passion that entwines fiery sex into this intricate three-way relationship. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

With original borderline stories at the edge of accepted conventions, Laura Tolomei guarantees an erotic earthquake with each new novel.

Laura Tolomei lives in Rome, Italy, and is the author of 28+ books in her very particular and unique genre—Erotic Romance with an Edge. Novels on the edge of accepted conventions written in her breezy narrative style that hooks you from page one, such is her trademark, and she guarantees an erotic earthquake with each book! Among others, they include the critically acclaimed scorching dark fantasy Virtus Saga, all ten books of it, along with the kindred spirits of both the ReScue and the Soulmate Series, not to mention her horror novels as well as a few historical ones.

On a more personal note, she has been traveling the globe since age five and has no intention of quitting. Having been an avid reader her entire life, she decided at age forty to write her own stories and is still enjoying every minute of it. A convinced vegetarian for over 10 years, she had to be more “elastic” in her eating habits due to health issues. Regardless, the world she has built for her renown Virtus Saga is strictly vegetarian, and no human living there would ever dare eat meat. She also loves cocktails, and her favorite one, Negroni, is featured prominently in her ReScue Series.

Read Sensual Stranger by Tina Donahue @tinadonahue #RLFblog #contemporaryTina, 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.

Sensual Stranger by Tina Donahue

Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Into his life she came—wanting…willing…wanton.
It’s no ordinary morning when Toni Starr arrives at Zach’s garage. Flat broke, with a past she won’t share, Toni’s instantly taken by such a potently virile man. Direct and unashamed, she tells him she’s a motorcycle performance artist who needs work and knows motors.
Zach knows women, and Toni’s unlike any he’s met. Lushly sensuous, exceedingly assured, she’d easily be his match in business and bed. A provocative challenge that stirs him as nothing has since losing his wife. A chance he’s reluctant to take, offering no more than a month’s employment, then she’ll have to be on her way.
The hours tick by. Each word and glance intensifies their denied yet escalating desire, forcing them to surrender to passion. Driven by carnal hunger, conquered by yearning, they face the unforeseen truth of Toni’s past and a future neither of them expected.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
Without question, roasted turkey and gravy, steamed red potatoes, corn, and a huge salad with ranch dressing.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Mexican, Mexican, Mexican. I could eat it 365 days a year.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Not a toy, but crafts. I loved anything that had to be put together, created, or built. I worked for hours or days trying to get everything just so. I was never satisfied until I made the craft look different—and better—than the picture on the box.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Those with gripping themes, such as The Handmaid’s Tale, the Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, and The Girl Who Played with Fire), The Lovely Bones. When I read, I want to feel. To be happy, cry, get angry…
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
Anything I can find on the net regarding the theme, locale, or the characters’ occupations. For example, in Sensual Stranger, Toni is a motorcycle performance artist. An unusual occupation for a woman. I scoured news stories to learn about women in the field and the dangers they faced from performing. Fascinating stuff.
