A romance which contains no explicit or graphic content

When her new online relationship heads south, a hopeful digital artist must confront her past in order to embrace the future. The Guy From The Internet is Birdie Song’s new sweet romance, coming 2 Nov 2020.

Birdie, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Guy From The Internet.

The Guy From The Internet by Birdie Song

Genre Sweet Romance

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

A sweet romance with a touch of family drama.

Holly Chee does not have her life together. She’s flip-flopped on uni courses and career choices, and somehow scared off her long-term fiancée-to-be, much to the chagrin of her immigrant parents.

But she does have her streaming channel, where she broadcasts her art from her one-bedroom Mount Lawley apartment. And she has that guy from France… assuming he’s even who he says he is.

“The Guy From The Internet” is a sweet #OwnVoices Asian-Australian romance novella, set in the world of Somerville Downs.

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What makes you different from other people?

Did you know the world’s population is a little over 7 billion? If I were a “one in a million” kind of person, there’d be enough people just like me to fill a medium-sized town. Imagine that! A whole town of people just like you. Anyway, I’ve been told I can be a bit odd sometimes…

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

I’m not much of a talker, but there are some things I could listen to others talk about for ages. Their creative process, for one. I love seeing how other creatives go about doing their work. Another is their garden. It’s amazing when you meet a passionate plant nerd who’s really into the science of it—their passion is contagious!

What is your favorite meal?

Right now, I’m obsessed with a burger place about 20 minutes from home. Their patties are juicy, the bread is fantastic, and they probably have the best chips out of any other burger place in town.

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, starting with paper journals in my terrible juvenile handwriting, but I never thought I could have a career in it until later in life. Outside of my day job, fiction writing has been a way to explore ideas and empathise more with different kinds of people.

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

No matter how long I’ve been writing anything for, I still always feel like a new writer myself. It’s good in a way, helps to keep things fresh and interesting, and there’s always something new to learn about the craft. I’d probably tell them that — to hang onto that “newcomer enthusiasm” and try to keep learning new things.

What are your writing goals for the next year or so?

I’ve got two manuscripts in the works, one (or both!) of which I hope to release next year, but we’ll see how it goes. When I started writing the Somerville Downs stories, I vowed to keep this part of my life light and fun — especially off the back of this interesting year.

The Billionaire’s Christmas Gift by Laura Haley-McNeil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Everything in his life is planned. How’d she get on his agenda?

Quint learned long ago that in Hollywood everything’s make believe, including love, but can’t resist struggling scriptwriter Chrystelle. She’s entirely too fascinating, but he doesn’t want her–he wants her script.

Chyrstelle wishes she could spend Christmas with her grandmother in Colorado. When Quint offers to produce her TV series, she’s thrilled, but he wants to change everything. The battle begins. Then Chrystelle’s grandmother takes ill, Chrystelle knows where she belongs and hops the next bus home.

What she hadn’t expected was Quint on her front porch, and not to wish her a Merry Christmas. He wants her script–on his terms, of course.

QUICK

What’s your favorite book?

Anything by Phyllis A. Whitney, Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy

What’s a genre you want to write?…

I love reading historicals, but I’ll leave the hard work to those industrious authors who like research.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Keep writing. With so many books being published, the best advertising for an author is another book.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

Prelude and Fugue. An oldy but a goody. As a pianist, I wrote this based on some of my experiences, but this book is more fact than fiction and was fun to write. It’s available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007LQD6GG

Easy

Coffee or tea? I like them both

Sit down dinner or drive through? Sit down. I love conversation and a nice dinner.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? Actually, my husband does the laundry.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? I unload it only because does the cooking and we have lots of dishes.

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? If I didn’t have to drive, that would be fine with me, but my husband would be antsy so we find ourselves exploring whenever we can.

Talk or text? Talking is nice. I hate when I have cut a conversation short, though.

Emoji or smilie? If the emoji is available, I’ll use it. With all those symbols, I could never figure out how to make my own.

Call It Love by Laura Haley-McNeil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

A kiss isn’t just a kiss…

Struggling actress Addison Duvall hustles background acting jobs at the Hollywood studios in hopes for her big break. When she’s cast as the stand in for the lead actress in a blockbuster spy film, she can’t believe her luck. The surprises rush in―her first test shot is with Hollywood heartthrob Spencer Kingsley. Her even bigger surprise is when the director yells, “Action!” and Spencer presses his lips to hers in a kiss.

Behind Spencer’s Hollywood façade hides the secret pain no one suspects. He’s the first to take a risk except when it comes to his heart. He can’t deny he and Addison have chemistry―chemistry onscreen and off―and he’s tempted to lower his guard. She seems real, not like the women he usually meets.

Once Addison’s star rises, so do Spencer’s doubts. She’s no different than the others looking for the connection to catapult their careers. He won’t let another woman damage his heart. His decision made, Spencer wishes her success.

But it’s already too late. How does he heal this Addison shaped hole in his heart? Should he risk more heartbreak for another chance at love?

Wherever Love Finds You, Book 1

When Love Whispers, Book 2

Call It Love, Book 3

If you love sweet romance, download a sample or buy Call It Love now.

Why did you write this book?

Addison Duvall has appeared in Wherever Love Finds You and When Love Whispers and I knew the next book should be hers. I wanted this book to be a Hollywood romance, but I wasn’t sure what her career focus would be. As I toyed with some ideas for her, I remembered that many years ago I worked as an extra on some Hollywood films, so I dug inside my memory and began to develop Addison’s acting background and she became one of those background actors looking for her big break. And when she’s an extra on the same set as megastar Spencer Kingsley, sparks fly.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Anything romance. I love a conflict between two larger than life characters that appears insurmountable until one of them is faced with the decision of what’s more important―the reason the characters stepped into this story or the love they know they can’t live without.

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

I can only pick one? That’s difficult. Different characters resonate with me for different reasons. Lauren Gibbs in Ever After by Karen Kingsbury is a memorable one. She’s determined in her convictions until she has to make the decision of what means more to her―her goals or being with the only man who’s ever made her happy.

What are you working on at the moment?

It’s been two years since I’ve written a Crystal Creek book, and I’ve finally had a chance to revisit that Colorado town and the Whitlochs. Their cousin, Eli Merrick, was recently discharged from the marines and is returning to his first love―traveling the country to enter saddle bronc competitions at rodeos. Pregnant Lily Harkins has escaped an abusive marriage. When these characters meet, they have to decide what’s really important.

This book has been a blast to research and I’ve met some amazing people who’ve taught me a lot about rodeos. Even though I’ve attended rodeos there was a ton of information I didn’t know so it was great to learn the behind-the-scenes information that I can reveal in this book.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The Billionaire’s Christmas Gift, Book 1 of the Christmas Billionaires Series will be released this fall, and hopefully the 2nd book in the series, as yet untitled, along with Book 8 of the Crystal Creek Series, as yet untitled.

Tea and Temptation at the Cat Café by Kris Bock

Genre sweet romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Can two lonely people get a second chance at finding love?

Zach may be a best-selling novelist, but it’s been a long time since he’s felt truly alive. In the last six months, he moved to the country, his wife left him, and he was diagnosed with cancer. Now he lives in a haze of treatments, writer’s block, and simply trying to survive each week. But when a pretty woman comes into his favorite café and throws herself down on a padded bench with a groan of despair, he feels something he thought he’d lost: curiosity.

As a veterinarian, Jenna knows both joy and heartbreak. The former she can share with her clients. The latter she keeps to herself. She learned one lesson from her ex-husband: Men don’t want to deal with your emotions. It’s odd to have a stranger ask about her problems. It’s even more of a shock when he offers to solve one of them by fostering the sick kitten abandoned by its owners.

Zach and Jenna bond over kitten care and build a close friendship. Could they have more? Zach is finally starting to hope for a future, ideally one that includes Jenna, but he can’t move forward until he’s dealt with his past. Meanwhile, Jenna is afraid to risk her heart on someone who might not survive the next few months.

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at the Furrever Friends Cat Café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Book 1, Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café, is free Feb 7-11!

Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café by Kris Bock

Genre sweet romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

He’s loved her forever. She still sees him as the neighbor kid. Can five desperate kittens bring them together?

Marley is a baker at the new Furrever Friends Cat Café, which is still trying to find its footing. Her nine-year-old son, Brian, desperately wants a kitten, but they can’t have pets where they live. Who has the time to date? Just as well that she’s protected her heart since the father of her child disappeared.

Adam has loved Marley since he was 13, and she was his best friend’s free-spirited older sister. Back then, he fantasized about rescuing her from bandits or dragons. Now he’s 24, and the five-year age gap isn’t so serious. He wants nothing more than to become a family with Marley and her son. But will she ever see him as a man?

When someone leaves a box of week-old kittens at the café, Adam jumps at the chance to be a hero. But herding kittens might be tougher than fighting dragons, especially when two of them fail to thrive. Can Adam, Marley, and Brian save the kittens and find a future together?

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at a small-town cat café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes.
