They have to turn to a staffing agency to get somebody to take a look at their shipboard computers.

When Clara accepts a temp job aboard the Merit, she figures she’ll only be on the ship for about an hour.

The man is handsome and single, and participating in the competition could change her whole life. But can they win?

Although this ragtag group may not look impressive from the outside, they have strength, determination, and smarts. They’ll need all those qualities if they want to win this amazing space race.

It Starts With A Kiss by JL Peridot @jlperidot #RLFblog #NewRelease #SciFi #RomanceJL Peridot, 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.

It Starts With A Kiss by JL Peridot

Genre Retrofuturistic sci-fi office romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Celeste is a talented engineer who doesn’t realize her job’s going nowhere fast. She’s a little naïve. She’ll cut code and solder cables forever as long as Owen’s around. Owen, on the other hand, knows exactly how badly things suck–he just doesn’t care. Sure, his skills aren’t what they used to be, but they’re still better than what Halcyon Aries deserves.

Then it happens. The company’s toxic management team finally cross the line. As both techies race to upgrade the station and to free the team from their oppressive contracts, they come to learn that life–and love–can only ever be what you make it.

Why did you write this book?

Initially, I just wanted to write a feel-good office romance set in the same universe as my previous novellas, Chasing Sisyphus and “Question”. But as I wrote, I found I had a lot of material (aka. “feelings”) locked up inside me. The Eleanor parts, the management parts and, heck, Celeste’s entire personal journey as the story unfolds were all fed by the years I’d spent in a technical and corporate environment.

When life gets frustrating or confusing, reading fiction helps me feel less alone. A great, relatable book gives me perspective and suggests how I could deal with stuff. This book is for the talented, professional, undermined women out there. Like Celeste, they could achieve just about everything they want to with just a little more self belief.

I see you, my lovelies.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Science fiction, but to be honest, I’ll read just about anything with a good story or interesting writing style. One of my all-time favourite books, War Boy by Kief Hillsbery, isn’t even close to the bookstore shelves I gravitate toward, but the story and writing just blew me away.

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

Lucasinho Corta from Ian McDonald’s Luna series. I adore his style, adore the style the author uses in his scenes. He embodies sex, hubris, sincerity and possibility. How can you not fall in love with that?

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m experimenting with storytelling in other mediums. It’s too early to talk about yet, but once the real work begins, I expect to vent my frustrations quite liberally on twitter :o)

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The rest of The Basilica Conspiracy and a few shorter erotic and romantic pieces.

Beg for Mercy by Jami Gray

Genre Post-apocalyptic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Choosing a side has never been so dangerous…

The world didn’t end in fire and explosions, instead it collapsed slowly, like falling dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild weather and collapsing economies, until what remained of humanity battles for survival in a harsh new reality.

An assassin by trade, a loner by nature, Mercy is sent to infiltrate the Cartels and unmask the identity of their new silent partner. Instead, she discovers a darker plan threatening to crumble the entire Southwest and ends up with a hefty bounty on her head. Still, she’s determined to stop the impending attack at any costs, even if it means partnering up with a member of the notorious Fate’s Vultures.

After enduring a brutal, blood-soaked lesson on the savagery of civilization’s scavengers, Havoc is well acquainted with the consequences of battling predators. But as a member of the nomadic band of arbitrators known as Fate’s Vultures, he’s determined to cement the necessary allies to oust the biggest threat looming on the horizon. When an enigmatic woman crosses his path, her secrets and troubling loyalty light the fuse on an unexpected craving and his insatiable curiosity.

In order to trap a common foe and derail an impending threat, Havoc and Mercy must turn the tables to hunt a predator. Can an assassin and a mercenary find their balance on the thin line of loyalty, or will it snap under the weight of their wary hearts?

Do It Write: Where NJ Walters writes @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #SciFiRomanceNJ Walters, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Before we talk about your office, please tell us about your latest book.

Unexpected Angel by NJ Walters

Genre Science Fiction Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Angelina Astoferus is on the run from her uncle, who wants to marry her off as part of a business deal. Her only hope is to find a spaceship to escape on–and a man willing to take her virginity, since her being pure is part of the deal. A desperate escape attempt leads her to the loading docks of the planet Oasis, where she spies Amos. Captivated by him, when the opportunity to sneak on board his ship arises, she takes it.
When Amos Marks discovers a stowaway on his ship, he knows she is big trouble. He and his brothers don’t need two dangerous enemies–her powerful uncle and the jilted warrior from Gravas–but Amos can’t turn his back on her. He decides to help her with her outlandish plan, but neither of them expects that the physical connection between them will lead to so much more.

How long have you been writing?

My first book was published October 27, 2004. Hard to believe it’s been almost 15 years. The industry, and my writing, has changed so much in that time.

What was your first published book?

My very first published book was Annabelle Lee with Ellora’s Cave. That was back when ebooks weren’t considered “real” books by the New York publishing houses and long before Amazon became a powerhouse in the industry. Amazing how much the world has changed since then.

I was so excited when they accepted my book. They wanted me to add about 10K to the story. I told them it was no problem. Then I panicked and went to work. It changed my life.

The book went out of publication for a couple of years after the publisher closed, but it has been released as Uncovering Annabelle.

Tell us about your writing space or home office.

I’ve written all but two of my books in a small 3′ by 6′ corner of my living room. I have a small desk, a desktop computer, and a small shelf. That’s my writing cave. The computer isn’t online. When I sit there, all I do is write.

What do you love most about that area?Do It Write: Where NJ Walters writes @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #SciFiRomance

Oddly enough, I love how small it is. I like being cozy. I like that everything is close at hand. There’s wall on two sides of the space and a privacy screen around the front and part of other side. It really is a writing cave.

If money was no object, what would your home office look like?

Honestly, if money was no option I’d own a house, maybe something 800 to 1000 square feet. (Which is much bigger than my current apartment.) I’d love a small office with floor to ceiling bookshelves on at least two of the walls for my books and personal mementos. I’d have my desk beside a window overlooking a yard. I’d also have a cozy reading area in front of the shelves where I could relax or work on research and notes.

What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?

I’m a bit of a technophobe, so I’m not big on electronics. Other than my desktop computer, I’d say I use my iPad mini the most. I use it mostly in the evenings when I’m curled up on the sofa for checking email or social media. I’ll even watch TV shows and YouTube videos on it.

What book or books about writing do you recommend for new authors?

There are so many great books on writing. Some are purely technical while others are more inspirational. I’d tell any new author to check out what’s in their local library and local bookstore to get a feel for what’s out there. Stephen King’s On Writing and Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird are both go-to books for most writers and a great starting point.

What do you like to read for relaxation?

I love to read romance, of course–historical, contemporary, romantic suspense, and paranormal. I also love to read nonfiction books. A lot of self help, personal growth types of books. I figure it’s good to balance things out.

Know the Hero from Mink Omega in Hiding by Jessica E Subject @jsubject #RLFblog #MPreg #PNR #RomanceJessica E Subject, 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 hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Mink Omega in Hiding by Jessica E Subject

Genre MPreg Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Roan is looking for a way out…
As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing, gang-ruled world I lived in. But, one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Someplace I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…
After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Will they find their way back to each other?
Then Roan shows up on my doorstep, soaking wet, and with no belongings. Of course, I take him in. But I don’t know how long I have until he leaves again. Can I trust him this time? Can I finally claim him as my mate? Or am I holding onto false hope? Because I know there is something he is keeping from me.

Know the Hero from Mink Omega in Hiding

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

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

Sleep. He runs his own business. If he’s not at work or doing paperwork at home, he’s most likely sleeping to prepare for another early morning.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He eats only clean, healthy foods, but when none of his clients are around, he will buy red bean cake from NJ Fresh Foods.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Moisture wiking or cotton clothes with running shoes for at the gym. And when he’s at home, he wears as little as possible.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, but he knows it’s faster to hire someone else.

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

He hired a new employee for his gym. Due to his high profile clients, he checked the employees social media and ran a background check before hiring them. Everything seemed okay. But, he didn’t know the person ran a fan account, and was stalking one of his celebrity clients. That person was fired as soon as the pictures were leaked online.

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

He tries to avoid them. But, he’s a big softy when it comes to children he knows.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

A bear. Literally and figuratively. After his protein shake, the drive into work, and a solo workout, he’s much more personable.

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

Pretty much everyone in Saramto is a shifter of some sort. So, he really doesn’t have to act any different.

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

He’s too busy to do everything himself. He’s learned to delegate since he started his business. Though if someone is sick, he knows how to work every single position in his gym.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Has a tattoo. The letter R. It’s on his chest, near his heart.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

personal vehicle

Recycle or toss?

recycle and compost whenever possible
