Know the Heroine from Rosalyn's Ring by Alina K Field @AlinaKField #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceAlina K Field, 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Rosalyn’s Ring by Alina K Field

Genre Regency Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
With her true inheritance lost, Rosalyn Montagu has reluctantly fallen into her elderly cousin’s tidy London life of do-gooder spinster. But when a young woman from the district of Rosalyn’s childhood is put up for auction in a wife sale, Rosalyn seizes the chance to rescue her–and to recover a family heirloom.
She braves a precarious Christmas Eve coach ride in the company of a mysterious nobleman and soon finds she’s not the only determined buyer attending the sale. Her travel companion not only succeeds in thwarting her purchase–he reveals himself as the man who took everything that should have been hers. Everything, that is, except her father’s ring, which she recovers before being tossed out of the inn into the snowy night.
The newly anointed Viscount Cathmore has accepted there is no way to avoid living his father’s dream of nobility, but he’s drawn the line at marrying a blue-blooded miss–until he meets Rosalyn, a provoking beauty with an upper crust manner, a larcenous streak, and enough secrets to rouse even his jaded heart. And when more mysteries swirl around Rosalyn’s lost inheritance, Cathmore is just the man to help her uncover the truth.

Know the Heroine from Rosalyn’s Ring

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
She pulls out a deck of cards and plays patience, if she’s alone, or if she has someone to play with, piquet.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
A meat pie.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
She loves colorful gowns with ribbons and trims.
Does she know how to fix things?
No, not at all.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Rosalyn’s plan to rescue her maid’s cousin from being auctioned off to another man failed badly when she was outbid by a handsome stranger who, shockingly, was buying the girl for his secretary.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She spends part of her time helping at a children’s home, more often than not, spoiling them.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Rosalyn is not a morning person. She’d much rather stay up late entertaining–if only she could afford to do so.
How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
As the daughter of a baron, she was taught all the proper rules. Unfortunately, she doesn’t always follow them.
Maid or takes care of herself?
She has a very saucy maid.
Proper dress or casual clothes?
Proper, but sadly, plain, due to her reduced circumstances.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Rolled up whenever possible.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
One of her most distinctive features is her red hair–everyone is always remarking about it. Still, she would never cover it with powder.
Carriage or horseback?
Horseback–if only she still owned a horse!
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Award winning author Alina K Field earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and German literature, but her true passion is the much happier world of romance fiction. Though her roots are in the Midwestern U.S., after six very, very, very cold years in Chicago, she moved to Southern California and hasn’t looked back. She shares a midcentury home with her husband, her spunky, blonde, rescued terrier, and the blue-eyed cat who conned his way in for dinner one day and decided the food was too good to leave.
She is the author of several Regency romances, including the 2014 Book Buyer’s Best winner, Rosalyn’s Ring. She is hard at work on her next series of Regency romances, but loves to hear from readers!

Avenging the Earl’s Lady by Alina K Field

Genre Regency Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
He’s the most irritating, inscrutable, insufferable lord in the kingdom.
Also nosy, managing, and manipulative, and a man who’s made an art of revenge.
She ought to know better than to encourage his attentions. But…he’s rich, and when an impossible debt from her past comes due, theft seems the only answer.
What had he missed about her?
She’s nobly born, and proper. If he wanted a wife, she’d be perfect. Not to mention, he’d very much like her in his bed.
But she’s gone missing, along with a priceless painting he needs for revenge on one last enemy.
Avenging his own honor is everything—until that of his lady is threatened.
Find out what happens when the invincible Spy Lord meets his match!
Why did you write this book?
Avenging the Earl’s Lady is the final book in the Sons of the Spy Lord Series. After all his matchmaking and meddling, I decided the spy lord needed his own romance!
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy historical romance, but I also like suspense and historical adventure stories.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I like the delightfully impossible Rupert Carsington, the hero of Mr. Impossible, by Loretta Chase.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on a novella-length story for release in 2019. It will tie in with my series and includes a haunted house, a hound of hell, and a hero with a hidden identity.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
The novella mentioned above and a Christmas story for 2019, yet to be written.

His Innocent Bride by Kryssie Fortune @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #Contempory #romanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Today’s guest post is by Kryssie Fortune, author of His Innocent Bride.

Not Your Perfect Hero by Kryssie Fortune

Harry Potter? Superman? Wolverine? Or Captain America? We all have our favourite heroes. Film boyfriends are great, but to me, book boyfriends are better. I can use my imagination to fill in the gaps.
To me, heroes are always whiter than white with a strong moral compass and muscles to match. I blame it on my mother feeding me a diet of John Wayne movies when I was a kid. The thing is, they don’t make good reading.
Where would Mr Darcy be without his arrogance? Remember the boyish Lawrie in Little Women–the one we all thought Jo would marry? How wise she was to choose her professor. Lawrie would have bored her to tears. How about Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon in the Da Vinci Code? He’s quick witted and a reasonable athletic, so damn perfect you could hate him. How did Dan Brown get around it? He made him severely claustrophobic. Even Indiana Jones is scared of snakes.
Apparently, we like our heroes flawed.
So, if you’re on the quest for your next book boyfriend, consider James, Earl of Deanswood in my book His Innocent Bride. He’s a survivor, the second son who never expected to inherit. He’s spent years fighting in the Peninsular war and again at Waterloo. He’s lost good friends and seen others maimed. He cares deeply for the army’s discarded veterans.
Well respected and obscenely rich, he sounds perfect. Except, war has taken its toll. Add in that his farther and older brother drowned on a fishing trip the day the Battle of Waterloo started, and the man’s an emotional mess. He copes by checking and rechecking every detail and micromanaging his estate.
When his mother demands grandchildren, he marries to please her. His need for control seeps into his marriage. Aletha is his to cosset, protect and spank.

His Innocent Bride by Kryssie Fortune

Publisher’s Note: His Innocent Bride is a stand-alone novel which shares the Regency-era setting of Wickedly Used. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
Consummating her marriage shouldn’t be so hard.
Raised in a dour religious sect, Alethea Allerton dreams of dancing, laughter, and love. She fell for the Earl of Deanswood within five minutes of meeting him. They married by special licence a week later, but he’d rather spend time with his mistress than bed his wife. Alethea has no idea how to seduce her husband. Desperate, she visits a house of ill-repute and hires a tutor. He agrees to meet all the costs as long as she remains blindfold throughout their lessons.
The Earl of Deanswood, a Waterloo veteran, wed Alethea to father an heir. He steps in as her tutor but he teaches her as much about spanking as sex.
Alethea survives an attempt on her life. Circumstances implicate Deanswood, and terrified, she flees London. He pursues her, and when he kisses her, she recognises the touch and taste of him. She’s hurt and humiliated by his deception.
Deanswood sets out to win back her trust. Along the way, he teaches her about ropes, spectators in the bedroom, submission, and sex toys. Only one thing mars their happiness. Someone wants Alethea dead.

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons.
Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them.
Kryssie’s pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that end on a cliff hanger.
Her books are all standalone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.

Is It True: When the Marquess Returns by Alanna Lucas @alannalucas27 #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Alanna Lucas, author of When the Marquess Returns, a Regency Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

When the Marquess Returns by Alanna Lucas

Genre Historical Romance-Regency
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
A Marquess in Waiting and the Cursed Heiress…
The ton is abuzz and mamas are lining up their daughters; identical twins Maximus and Lucius St. Albans are making their entry into society. But they’re not just eligible–they’re the missing grandsons of the Duke of Warrington, stolen as infants.
However, Maximus doesn’t relish the battle with his cocky, reprobate brother to be the next Marquess. And he has no time for the simpering misses now vying for his attention. Only Miss Sabina Teverton has his interest.
She was resigned to life as a spinster but from the moment Sabina meets Lord Maximus, her heart is torn. She dreams of a match with him–but how can that be when she’s been branded as cursed…and she knows secrets of that night long ago when Maximus and his twin were snatched from their cradles?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No – number 12!
this book is part of a series?
Yes- it is part of a multi-author series, but each book is a standalone.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes! In addition to the twin brother’s in the story constantly arguing in my head, my family and I were selling one house, moving into my mom’s house while the new—well, new to us—house was going through escrow, moved again, then just when we were down to last five boxes, a plumbing disaster struck (rooms gutted, new plumbing throughout…just a mess!).
you did research for this book?
Yes
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
No
this book has more than one genre?
No
you speak more than one language?
Sort of. I studied in Paris, France *mumbles into her hand how many years ago* and became quite proficient in speaking French, but I rarely get the opportunity to speak it now. My kids have just started taking French this semester, so I’m hoping it comes back to me.
you grew up where you live now?
No
you love to read?
OMG Yes!! I love books! (Does anyone answer ‘no’ to that?)
you are never late?
Ha! I have a teen daughter. Of course we’re always running late!
you love pizza?
Yes—my husband makes the best pizza, all from scratch.
you love sushi?
Yes
you have a pet?
Yes—Josie is a very sweet German Shorthaired Pointer.

Lies and Solace by Jana Richards

She can’t live with one more lie. He can’t tell the truth.
Harper Lindquist is convinced she’s found the answer to her financial prayers. Unless she pours cash into crumbling Solace Lake Lodge, she’ll lose her family’s legacy. Her would-be savior arrives in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard and she’s determined to prove to her reluctant, and trapped, financier the lodge is a sound investment. But Harper isn’t completely honest with him. And she has no idea the lake is hiding secrets of its own.
Ethan James is a liar, but his money is very real. He isn’t convinced a broken-down inn is a smart investment opportunity. But the more he understands Harper’s dreams and desires, the more he wants to be the man to make them come true. The trauma in both their pasts means neither can fully trust the other. They must find the courage to love, to trust, and to accept, or yesterday’s sorrows will keep them apart.
