Read To Dance With A Lord, a Regency romance by Gina Danna @GinaDanna1 #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceGina Danna, 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.

To Dance With A Lord by Gina Danna

Genre Regency Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Gerard Jennings had done his duty for God and Country and returned to England to assume a title he had never wanted nor deserved. Sweat and blood were not all he left behind in war-torn France, he’d also left his heart with the woman he’d loved and lost. Forced into a society that no longer fits the man he’s become, the new Marquis of Linnwood drifts through a sea of debutantes to fulfill the family obligation of finding a wife. None attract his attention until he meets the one who tugs at his reluctant heart – Lady Charlotte.
A runaway pup, a damsel in distress, Lady Charlotte is rescued by Lord Linnwood only to have her reputation ripped to shreds by petty gossip. Her fiance withdraws his proposal, leaving Charlotte forever ruined. The dashing Marquis again comes to her aid by making her his wife.
Though deeply in love with her husband, Charlotte can’t bridge the distance between them and spends night after night alone. His haunted past shadows their lives and she must find a way to not only dispel his ghosts but ease his grieving heart. Will it be enough to also save his tortured soul?
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
My favorite down-home family style meal is pasta – in almost every form! Latest cravings lean towards tortellini with red sauce. Yum!!
Describe the perfect vacation.
Perfect vacation – The beach! Or historical area (thinking Civil War battlefields and towns). Or Italy – which I’m finally going to this fall!!!! Childhood dream come true!!! For all 3, I want warm, sunny weather and a place to lose myself, so to speak.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My favorite toy was probably my model horses. Have a slew of Breyer horses. Made them into a herd and they got married and had babies (foals). I’m a total horse lover!!
What are your hobbies?
Hobbies? Besides working out, I love to do living history. I’m a Civil War reenactor and have also dabbled in Early 19th century (reliving part of the Lewis & Clark Corp of Discovery 1803) and World War II. My Civil War wardrobe is a bit large, so to speak, but I love the era!
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
I tend to research a lot. This book I just released is a Regency romance, but I also write Historical Fiction with a romance. For that, I have two series – 1 in Ancient Rome (The Gladiators series) and the other is the American Civil War. The Civil War series requires quite a bit more research, because I need it to be accurate in all of it, with a biography, which I include at the end. I tend to get lost in the research sometimes….

Why did you write this book?

This concludes the final romance in my St. Clairs’ trilogy, the first time I’ve written in the Regency Era—and I love it! Luke is the youngest St. Clair and a proverbial bad boy who’s tired of his empty life. I paired him with a strong Englishwoman who’d been stranded in America during the War of 1812. She’s taken on some independent American qualities during her years away from England that will make her quite the match for Luke!
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love reading everything, especially romance, suspense, and thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Miss Elizabeth Bennet is perfection!
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve finished up the three novellas that feature new heroes and heroines in the Regency Era, while a few of the characters from my St. Clairs trilogy stop by for some of the fun. Readers will see the Earl of Merrifield making a fine match with a de Wolfe from the North, as well as two other de Wolfes finding their HEAs.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Embracing the Earl (The St. Clairs Book 3) is a June 22 release. The three novellas will follow later in 2019.

Read the new Lacewood by Jessica James @jessicajames #RLFblog #NewRelease #womensfictionJessica James, 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.

Lacewood by Jessica James

Genre Women’s Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

A love story that spans centuries…

Two people trying to escape their pasts find a connection through an old house—and fulfill a destiny through the secrets it shares. Part love story, part ghost story, Lacewood is a timeless novel about trusting in fate, letting go of the past, and believing in things that can’t be seen.

Moving to a small town in Virginia is a big change for New York socialite Katie McCain. But when she stumbles across an abandoned 200-year-old mansion, she’s enthralled by the enduring beauty of the neglected estate—and captivated by the haunting portrait of a woman in mourning.

Purchasing the property on a whim, Katie attempts to fit in with the colorful characters in the town of New Hope, while trying to unravel the mystery of the “widow of Lacewood.” As she pieces together the previous owner’s heartrending story, Katie uncovers secrets the house has held for centuries, and discovers the key to coming to terms with her own sense of loss.

The past and present converge when hometown hero Will Durham returns and begins his own healing process by helping the “city girl” restore the place that holds so many memories. As the mystic web of destiny is woven, a love story that might have been lost forever is exposed, and a destiny that has been waiting in the shadows for centuries is fulfilled.

Rich in emotion and poignant in its telling, Lacewood is an unforgettable story about love and loss, roots and belonging…and spirits of the past that refuse to be quieted.

Why did you write this book?

To make a long story short, it has a little bit of everything I love…history, mystery, old houses, small towns, country life…and majestic trees. I also found a way to give readers two complete love stories. (One from this century and one from the 1860s).

What is your favorite genre to read?

Political thrillers

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

Mitch Rapp from Vince Flynn’s novels.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m still mulling over my next project. Readers are clamoring for another book in my Phantom Force Tactical series, so that is where I am leaning.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’m a slow writer so it takes me a year to write a new book. I am planning to do a box set of my Phantom Force Tactical series though.

Caroline Clemmons, 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.

Deborah’s Dilemma by Caroline Clemmons

Genre historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
What can Deborah do to protect herself from the devil plaguing her hometown?
Can a young man who’s been away for six years fit into the community he left?
What madman is responsible for the murder and mayhem plaguing Pearson Grove?
Deborah Taber has been concerned by her inability to choose a life’s occupation. That worry was pushed aside when someone shot her brother and fire bombed her family’s newspaper, The Pearson Grove Gazette. She believes Trey Pearson is innocent of attacking her brother—isn’t he? She’s had a crush on Trey since second grade and desperately wants to trust him.
Wade Pearson III, called Trey, is happy to be home on Pearson Ranch after six years in New England. He trained to manage his family’s far-reaching investments. Nothing prepared him to be accused of murder or targeted by a killer. If not for quick action by the sheriff, Trey would have been lynched by vigilantes. He wants to help trap the real villain while protecting Deborah, her family, and his.
Can Deborah and Trey survive the threats against them? Will this clever murderer be caught before he delivers his terrible revenge against those he believes slighted him?
Why did you write this book?
Deborah’s Dilemma is book 3 in my Pearson Grove Series set in North Central Texas in 1885. I wanted this series to explore the diverse young women in a small town, including their dreams and their efforts to achieve them.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical western romance and second would be Regency. I love 19th century history in particular and enjoy reading books set in that time.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Julie Garwood’s Prince Charming probably ties with Fallon from Louis L’Amour’s Fallon but for different reasons. Taylor has far more strength than she realizes and used her resources to rescue her niece and nephew and their companion. Fallon believes himself beyond redemption and yet he works harder than anyone to save the town he began as a scam.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m writing An Agent for Lily in the Pinkerton Matchmaker series. This new series is a popular series but this is my first contribution.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll have four more of the Pearson Grove series, another Proxy Brides, another Pinkerton Matchmaker, and two Christmas novellas. The rest of the year will be busy!
