New series: Derek-De Wolfes of Esterley Castle by Alexa Aston @AlexaAston #RLFblog #NewRelease #RegencyRomance Alexa Aston, 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.

Derek (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 2) by Alexa Aston

Genre: Regency romance

Book heat level: PG-13

He loved her—and was blindsided when she wed another man…

He refused her—and now her life is no longer her own…

Lady Amelia Ward is ecstatic that her brother, the Earl of Merrifield, has just married for love. Amelia, who is in her first Season, now wants the same for herself. Though ton marriages rarely involve love, she has seen what a difference it’s made in Oliver’s life and she won’t settle for anything less—especially because she’s already in love with her new brother-in-law—who thinks her a featherbrain.

Derek de Wolfe, the new Earl of Reston, has seen his older sister, Diana, wed to Lord Merrifield. Now Derek’s ready to return to Northumberland because he has no plans to wed for several years, preferring to focus on changes he wishes to make at Esterley, his country estate. In truth, he’s running away from his growing attraction to Amelia, his new sister-in-law, whom he knows believes in love.

When Amelia decides to make Derek jealous, her plans backfire. She finds herself wed to a stranger who’s a known rake and her unhappiness grows when she realizes the kind of marriage they will have.

Will Amelia find a way to escape a union that should never have occurred and if she does, will Derek be waiting for her? Derek is Book 2 in The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle and a part of the De Wolfe Pack Connected World.

*Look for Diana (out now) and Thea (coming September 24), where Derek’s siblings find their own HEAs.

Why did you write this book?

I had been asked to write in Kathryn Le Veque’s de Wolfe Connected World and decided to do three novellas that told the stories of three de Wolfe siblings during the Regency Era. Diana was the first released (last month) and she won the heart of Lord Oliver Merrifield, a dashing, delightful man who’d won my heart (and readers)—but he hadn’t gotten an HEA of his own.

Derek is Diana’s brother, so this is his love story, full of some heartache but a very happy ending!

What is your favorite genre to read?

I enjoy reading thrillers most of all. I recently read The Chain—it’s terrifying—all the more so because I could see it easily happening.

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

Elizabeth Bennet is a constant favorite for me.

What are you working on at the moment?

My St. Clairs were meant to be a trilogy, but reader response has been so great that I am writing Books 4 & 5. These two romances will finish the series and be released this fall.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I have the last novella in this series left to go. Thea (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 3) releases September 24. While all three can be read as standalones, I think it’s fun to read all three of these novellas together. And don’t be surprised if you see a few St. Clairs pop up in this trilogy!

Embracing the Earl-Book 3 in The St. Clairs-by Alexa Aston @AlexaAston #RLFblog #NewRelease #RegencyRomanceAlexa Aston, 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.

Embracing the Earl (The St. Clairs Book 3) by Alexa Aston

Genre: Regency Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Can a rogue earl convince a stubborn bookseller their love is worth fighting for?
Read Book 3 in the bestselling “The St. Clairs” series for free with Kindle Unlimited!
Luke St. Clair, Earl of Mayfield, has tired of his empty, carefree life and seeks to find a spouse he can love and cherish, much as his brother and sister have done. Ridding himself of his mistress and lover, he commits to entering the upcoming Season with an open mind. Before the Season can even begin, however, Luke meets an independent beauty who does more than interest him.
After Lady Caroline Andrews loses her beloved sister, she decides she needs a change of scenery and travels to Boston to visit her aunt, only to be stranded for three years when England and America go to war. Once the peace accords are signed, Caroline returns to London. Discovering that her father has died deeply in debt, leaving his daughter nothing, Caroline uses an inheritance from her aunt to open her own bookstore and tearoom. Needing to support herself, Caroline declares she will never marry. Falling in love with Luke St. Clair wasn’t in her plans, but Luke is convinced the spirited, independent Caroline is the one for him.
Will the rogue with a heart for children persuade the stubborn bookseller that fate demands they wed?
Each book in The St. Clairs Trilogy is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1 Devoted to the Duke
Book #2 Midnight with the Marquess
Book #3 Embracing the Earl

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.

New series: Diana (De Wolfes of Esterley Castle) by Alexa Aston @AlexaAston #RLFblog #NewRelease #RegencyRomanceAlexa Aston, 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.

Diana (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 1) by Alexa Aston

Genre: Regency romance
Book heat level: PG-13
A woman whose reputation was destroyed. A powerful earl who longs for children. Can they ignore the raging gossip and find happiness together?
Lady Diana de Wolfe’s curiosity about kissing led to her ruin before she ever made her come-out in London. Banished from her home by a furious, disappointed father, Diana gives birth out of wedlock to twins and supports her family without help until her parents’ death. Her brother, the new Earl of Reston, welcomes her back into the family fold and takes Diana to London, hoping she can make a match—and demanding she keep silent about her children until she’s landed a husband.
Oliver Ward, Earl of Merrifield, raised his siblings after his father’s tragic death and his mother’s subsequent madness. With his brother at university and his sister making her come-out, Oliver is ready to find a wife and start a family of his own. His good friend, Lady Merrick, whom he almost wed, promises to help him find the right woman.
Meeting shortly before the London Season begins, Oliver is drawn to Diana’s spirit and beauty. Her attraction for him only grows when he learns about her precocious twins and he is determined to make her his.
Will the rumors regarding Diana’s past mistakes doom this couple in society’s eyes—or can love overcome gossip and save them both?
Diana occurs after the events written about in Alexa Aston’s bestselling St. Clairs Trilogy—Devoted to the Duke; Midnight with the Marquess; and Embraced by the Earl—and is a part of the De Wolfe Pack Connected World.
*Look for Derek August 24 and Thea September 28, where Diana’s siblings find their own HEAs.
Why did you write this book?
I had created a lovely, wonderful man named Lord Merrifield in Midnight with the Marquess. He also appeared in Embracing the Earl. I hated that Merrifield was this terrific man who hadn’t gotten his own HEA—so I came up with Diana de Wolfe for him!
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy reading thrillers most of all. Just finished The New Girl by Daniel Silva and highly recommend it!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I usually say Elizabeth Bennet but today I’m going with Gabriel Allon.
What are you working on at the moment?
My St. Clairs were meant to be a trilogy, but reader response has been so great that I am writing Books 4 & 5. They will finish up the series and come out this fall.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I have two novellas releasing soon. Derek (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 2) and Thea (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 3) come out August 24 and September 28, respectively. While they can be read as standalones, I think it’s fun to read all three of these novellas together. And don’t be surprised if you see a few St. Clairs pop up in this trilogy!

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….
