Blind Faith by Alexa Aston

Genre: Western historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

A wounded horse. A half-dead man. She thinks she can save the horse. She doubts the man will survive.

Painter Alena McClaine’s world turns upside down when an unconscious rider arrives on his injured horse at her isolated California cabin. Both the animal and the stranger sport bullet wounds.

Much to her surprise, the man lives—and hasn’t a clue about his identity. Even worse, he’s now blind. As the stranger recovers from his head and shoulder wounds, Alena finds herself falling in love.

He remembers his name—and then his mission.

John Harper recollects pieces of his past as a beautiful woman nurses him back to health. Finally, he remembers he’s a lawman hunting a vicious gang of outlaws who kidnapped a U.S. senator—the very man who married his childhood sweetheart. He located the gang, only to be shot before he could rescue the senator and his young son.

When his sight returns, John knows he must return to the gang’s hideout and attempt to rescue the captives despite his bum shoulder. Alena, a crack shot, insists on going with him. The secrets and lies that await them test their new love.

We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about Cowboy Desire.Know the Hero from Space Cowboy Blues a story by Alice Renaud in the BVS anthology Cowboy Desire @alicerauthor #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #SciFi

Genre: the stories in this anthology span various genres including Contemporary, Historical and Sci-Fi Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Stories have a variety of heat ratings from PG to X

Know Josh Reynolds from Space Cowboy Blues in Cowboy Desire

Know the Hero from Space Cowboy Blues a story by Alice Renaud in the BVS anthology Cowboy Desire @alicerauthor #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #SciFiHere are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

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

He saddles his horse (or whatever alien species he’s tamed) and goes for a ride by the light of the moon (or whichever satellite orbits the planet he’s on).

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

A juicy beef burger with all the trimmings. Although he’s happy to eat whatever alien food is put in front of him, he still likes Earth food the best.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

He likes to wear his traditional Earth cowboy garb – jeans, checkered shirt, cowboy hat.

Does he know how to fix things?

He can fix most things on Earth, but for his spaceship and alien machinery he relies on the clever robots who accompany him.

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

On the blue planet Albastra, he fell for the beautiful alien Melynas. He went on a date with her and almost took off his mask to kiss her. It would have been the death of him – Albastra’s atmosphere is saturated with radiation and micro-organisms which are lethal to humans.

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

He likes children and is very natural around them. He likes to talk and play with them. Deep down, he longs to be a dad.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Bright eyed and bushy tailed. Cowboys get up early!

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

He’s friendly and very polite with everyone he meets – be they human, alien or even machine.

Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?

He will do it himself if he can, but he knows his limitations – complex technology is best left to robots.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. Space cowboys generally don’t do piercings or tattoos as they can interfere with the skin treatments required to travel in space and visit alien planets.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Spaceship.

Recycle or toss?

Always recycle. He’d never dream of polluting another planet.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Claiming Caroline by Yasmine Hyde @sasseYvetteH #RLFblog #HistoricalWesternA rebellious bride needs discipline in Yasmine Hyde’s new historical western romance, Claiming Caroline. To save her reputation she finds herself saying ‘I do’ to a sexy overbearing cowboy.

Yasmine, 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.

Claiming Caroline by Yasmine Hyde

Genre American Historical Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Destitute after her father’s death, Caroline Douglas finds herself in a bind when the sleazy, rich business owner wants her father’s debt in full. He won’t take ‘no’ or ‘I owe you’ for an answer. She finds herself dragged to the Harlot and the Hero, forced to work off her payment. When she thinks things can’t get worse, they do. To save her reputation, she finds herself saying ‘I do’ to a sexy, overbearing cowboy. Tired of following the rules of men, Caroline decides to push back. Especially against her sexy, all-consuming husband who’s too quick with his discipline techniques

Garrett Rand, a dairy farm owner, and brother to the local sheriff, has spent the last six months requesting the hand of one ‘crofters’ daughter. Blocked at every turn, he starts to give up on ever having her, only to discover she’s in the brothel on the outskirts of Grover Town. Willing to stop at nothing to finally claim the beauty as his wife, in his bed, he makes a deal to get her out of the clutches of one of the richest men in town. However, marrying her is one thing; keeping Caroline out of trouble is another. He’ll just have to keep her over his knee until she learns. When danger strikes the area and threatens the safety of his wife, he will do what’s needed to protect her.

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?

I’m a foodie, so I don’t really have a go-to meal. I’m always on the hunt to try something new. I lean toward new vegan restaurants and I’m partial to Asian food.

Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?

I have two, Gabriel and Michael in Robin Schone’s The Lover and Gabriel’s Woman.

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

I usually go for a dark regency historical romance and paranormal romance.

What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?

Historical wagon trail sagas. I like to read about dreams people had in the 1800’s that drove them to leave home or country and travel west.

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

USA Today Bestselling Author Yasmine Hyde is the alter ego of Yvette Hines. Hmm, how does that work? Well, as an author I have to stretch myself. So, when I’m in the mood for a little bit of dirty writing in the late 19th century of Mid-Western America, or maybe feeling a little 1800’s hotness on the streets of England, or just want to write a down and dirty straight erotic story, it will be located under this pen name. So, join me on this journey of writing stories my muse SHE creates, as I obey by tapping away at my laptop keys. I still want to bring readers stories that they will love, I hope, as much as I enjoy writing. Let’s dive in, naughty ones!

Read the series: The Legend of Skinner Robelard -- Legends Book 1 by Rue Allyn @RueAllyn #RLFblog #WesternRomanceA woman bent on revenge hides in plain sight in Rue Allyn’s new Historical Western Romance, The Legend of Skinner Robelard. A man from her past wants to keep her safe, but can his love conquer her vengeance.

Rue, 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 series.

The Legend of Skinner Robelard — Book 1 in the Legend Series

Genre Historical Western Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG 13

Pampered and privileged then betrayed and disowned, Elise Van Demer hides in plain sight and plots her revenge on the men who destroyed her life. With her goal in sight, she encounters a lawman from her past. Boyd Alvarez could ruin everything, and the last thing she needs is wanting some man who only wants to protect her.

His family dead and without a home, Boyd Alvarez rides the range and hunts bounties for a living. When he stumbles on Elise Van Demer his only thought is to keep her safe. He can outgun just about every man, but can he protect her from her own plans of revenge? Can he teach her that loving a man is a better dream than destroying her enemies?

Which book is this in the series?

This is the first book in my Legends series

How many books do you plan for the series?

At least three with a good chance of more

How many books are completed?

Only this first book

What characters are the main stars in your series?

A different hero and heroine will star in each book.

What is the overall theme in this series?

Ordinary men and women who live extraordinary lives

What did you like best about writing this series?

I love the challenge of finding the ordinary men and women and the extraordinary circumstances into which I place them. For example my plan for book three is to have a prospector–fairly ordinary for the ‘old west’ encounter a fae woman, who’s been banished from her home.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

I’ve written a number of series. Wildfire love books 1-3 are sort of prequel to this story. The hero and heroine of The Legend of Skinner Robelard met in book 2 of the Wildfire Love Series. I’ve also written several books set in Medieval England and Scotland The Knight Chronicles is an ongoing series which will eventually link up all the heroes of those books.

Where can we find links for all your books?
