To Heal a Heart by Jana Richards

Genre: Small town contemporary romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Garrett Saunders’ world changed two years ago on a road in Afghanistan. Back home, he feels like a stranger. As he struggles to find his place in the world, he meets a horse destined for the slaughterhouse and a woman bent on rescuing the strays of the world, including him.

Blair Greyson moves to Masonville to look after her ailing grandfather and give her rescue horses a home. Right away she butts heads with a surly former Marine. Despite a rocky start, they come to an agreement: Blair will board Garrett’s rescue horse and he’ll help with repairs around her farm.

Garrett finds purpose working with Blair—and falls in love with her. But she’s hiding a secret. Can she forgive herself and accept Garrett’s love, or will she let guilt and regret continue to rule her life?

When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.
In her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg, Canada with their Pug/Terrier cross Lou and several unnamed goldfish.

Healing Hearts by CB Clark

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Western

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Reeling from loss and heartbreak, Stella King is desperate to escape painful memories. The position of nanny on an isolated ranch in British Columbia’s rugged Chilcotin Plateau seems the answer to her prayers.

Cattle rancher, Dawson Wheeler, has worked hard to overcome grief and build a predictable world for his young daughter. The last thing he needs is the all-too-attractive Stella disrupting the smooth running of his ranch, especially now that disturbing incidents are happening on his property.

Defending his land against those who want to gut it will be a challenge, but the biggest threat of all may be to his heart.

Why did you write this book?

The idea behind Healing Hearts came from my shock when I learned that in British Columbia, landowners don’t own the rights to the land under the surface. That opens the door for mining companies to survey private property in search of valuable minerals. Healing Hearts is the story of a strong, independent rancher faced with the threat of a mine development on his property and a murderer who’ll do anything to stop the mine.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic Suspense

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

Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind

What are you working on at the moment?

Another romantic suspense. This one involves a heroine who comes across a child kidnapping victim when she’s out in the woods snowshoeing. She must escape the clutches of a ruthless killer and, with the help of a handsome detective, stop the kidnapper from striking again.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Healing Hearts was released on March 23, and it usually takes me about a year from starting the writing of a new book and going through the many rounds of editing, before a book is published. At the moment, I’m working on two stories that I’m excited about writing.

Relive small town memories in Sommerville Holidays by Vicki Batman @Vicki Batman #RLFblog #RomanticComedy Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Sommerville Holidays.

Sommerville Holidays by Vicki Batman

Genre: Romantic comedy short stories

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Hopes and wishes and holiday kisses…Sommerville holidays.

Story Blurb: Holiday Disaster: Days before Christmas, a librarian experiences plumbing issues and visits from Mr. Maintenance Man who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Claus.

The Littlest Angel: Two people. One ornament for the tree. Can a twosome find common ground and discover the true meaning of Christmas?

Holiday Handbag Extravaganza: Christmas Countdown is on! A hunk-a-licious customer pesters a boutique owner to locate a vintage handbag for his mother. Too bad the wedge between them is his sister, the meanest girl in town.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

I write romantic comedy mysteries (the Hattie Cook mystery series) and romantic comedy short stories.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Oh my! Every story is different. For “Holiday Disaster,” I really did have an incident when I was a single girl and dropped my contact down the drain. I had little money to buy a new one; so there was no choice but to call Mr. Maintenance Man. However, the guy wasn’t nearly as much fun as my fictional guy. In “The Littlest Angel” I based the story on a Christmas ornament a family friend gave my mom. In “Holiday Handbag Extravaganza,” I pay tribute to a favorite handbag designer, Enid Collins.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Getting the story right. I work and work before it is edited and then work some more. I confess, I’m a slow writer.

When did you write your first book?…

I began writing sixteen years ago. Wow! Time has flown by.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather-handbags. LOL

Black or red? Love red. Wear black.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, preferably soft flannel.

Ocean or mountains? Mountains.

City life or country life? City life.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home watching The Holiday Baking Championship with Handsome

Dogs or cats? Both!
