Becker Circle by Addison Brae

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Rated R
My first and only boyfriend believed I was too gutless to leave. He was dead wrong. My name’s Gillian, and I graduated Harvard early and left his hot temper and everyone else behind for Dallas. Determined to make it on my own, I land a second job bartending at the neighborhood pub smack in drama central where most every jerk in the neighborhood hits on me—at a huge price.
A week into the job, the neighborhood’s very popular drug dealer falls to his death a few feet from the table I’m serving. The cops say suicide, but the hot guitar player in the house band and I suspect foul play, and I intend to prove it. We dig deeper, grow closer, and make a shocking discovery. We know the murderer. Watch the trailer.

The Silver and Gold Deception by Brenda G Bradley @BGTDS #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseBrenda G Bradley, 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.

The Silver and Gold Deception by Brenda G Bradley

Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Dee thinks her life is finally perfect; she’s found her “Mr. Right” and she has a great job.
Things are going great until four masked men rob the store where she works—then things start to go wrong.
Bad luck seems to follow her everywhere, and when she finds a corpse in her bed, she knows she needs help. Mayhem ensues when her oddball neighbors try to help when the F.B.I suspects she’s the mastermind behind the robbery.


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


How do you come up with ideas?…

My books are based on events and places I have experienced. When I was in a jewelry store that had a big picture window near the sidewalk, I wondered what if the place was robbed. That sparked the idea for The Silver and Gold Deception.

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

I have always made up stories in my head even as a small child. Now I get to put them on paper and share them with the world.

When did you write your first book?…

I worked for the state of Maryland for thirty years. The year after I retired, I wrote my first book.

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.

Very human Tau Cetus police agent Jai Turner goes undercover as a Beautiful Dolls sex robot in order to bring down the planet’s most notorious arms dealer, Marque Callex. The police have never been able to get close to Callex, and Jai’s assignment is to coax information out of Marque on his illicit dealings – information that will lead to his conviction.
Reclusive arms dealer Marque Callex only accepted an invitation from Beautiful Dolls because with his deadly line of work – and the dangerous secrets he’s keeping – he can’t afford to let a real woman into his life.
But neither Jai nor Marque are what they seem, and their week together has consequences neither expect.
