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 latest book.

Passionate Destiny by Dee S Knight

Genre Paranormal erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Margaret Amis-Hollings moves to an old house in Virginia, never suspecting a ghost has first dibs. Soon her life is intertwined with a soldier from long ago and with his descendant, Aaron. Living with a ghost is one thing. Dealing with Aaron is quite another. They share the present; they might share a past. Do they share a destiny?

Stressing Aaron Belton

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.
Please tell me about your hero.
Age: Mid-thirties
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Palmyra, Virginia
Profession: Former professor, now carpenter and historical restorer
Ethnicity: Southern gentleman
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):
What does your hero look like?
Eyes were the darkest blue, hair the deepest black, teeth the whitest white. And straight. Over 6 feet, muscular due to hard work and not a gym. Dimples.
Who is the significant other in his life?
Margaret Amis-Hollings, new owner of River Peace.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Relaxed backyard barbecue, with all the fixings and beer to drink. He likes smaller groups with close friends and easy conversation.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
He’ll spend some time playing with the children running around, stand around the grill with the guys and shoot the breeze, and later sprawl in a deck chair at the fire pit holding hands with Margaret. He’s casual and comfortable, but also ready to help out when needed.
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
He’ll mingle and mix. Even in more formal situations he wouldn’t be allof. He’s very comfortable with who he is.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
Beer. And not a fancy foreign brand. He’ll try a local microbrewery, but his usual choice is simply a Sam Adams or a Bud.
How much drink is his usual?
Aaron cares too much for family and friends to drink much. He’d never take a chance on hurting anyone through word or action by drinking too much. He might have a couple of beers but he’s just as happy with sweet tea.
The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
He wouldn’t go to hide or to avoid anyone. And he wouldn’t go to drag someone back. He might go to check to be sure they’re okay—and in the case of youngsters, to be sure they aren’t getting ready to make trouble. ;)
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
He’s definitely the guy others migrate to. He’s intelligent and with a good sense of humor. Aaron is generally a really great guy but in his mind he’s just normal.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
He’ll break it up. If the fight is verbal, he’ll try to calm things down by changing the subject. If the fight is physical, he’s big enough and strong enough to step in and force the combatants apart. At the kinds of parties he attends, there are often children around. Aaron wouldn’t put up with bad behavior around his kids or Margaret.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
He would definitely do the tossing.
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
Nope, he’s a family man—and he was even before he met Margaret because he has parents and siblings nearby. He won’t stay late.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
He might be exasperated but he’ll be polite and rational. He’s a scientist and engineer and staying calm and rational is part of his personality.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
He rushes to discover the cause.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
Stopping the brutality.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
He won’t hesitate to stop one person assaulting another. And if it’s a woman—or certainly a child—bearing the brunt of someone else’s anger, he’s likely to be a bit forceful when stopping the assaulter. Just to be sure he (she) stops acting badly, you understand.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
Aaron doesn’t just fight with his fists, he fights with his intelligence, too. So first he makes sure the person he’s tried to rescue is away. Then he might try a fast escape himself. He’s no fool. Staying to fight a battle he can’t win if the first victim is gone, if not smart.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?
He’s polite but not friendly. If things go too far he’ll be a bit terse and as soon as he can he’ll escape the situation.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
Aaron isn’t one to jump in and undermine someone else. If he can he’ll speak to the younger person privately or he’ll deal with things as best he can without making a scene. On the other hand, he won’t be taken advantage of by being in an awkward situation. If things pass the point of politeness, he’ll excuse himself.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
“It’s all mind over matter. Get the job done and then you can rest.”
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
“You can do whatever you have to do.”
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
Aaron has lived a pretty charmed life. He hasn’t had many upsets and no disasters that teach the hard lessons. But he recognizes that not all things are equal or fair. He changed his life in order to help make things as fair as possible for his family and community.
What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?
He’s a really good guy. Margaret describes him as looking like Superman and he kind of fits the mold. There are some genuinely good people in the world, and Aaron is one of them. But he’s still fun and interesting. And sexy ;)

Know the Hero from Becker Circle by Addison Brae @AddisonBrae1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseAddison Brae, 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.

Becker Circle by Addison Brae

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Gillian’s first and only boyfriend believed she was too gutless to leave. He was dead wrong. Gillian graduated Harvard early and left his hot temper and everyone else behind for Dallas. Determined to make it on her own, she lands a second job bartending at the neighborhood pub smack in drama central where most every jerk in the neighborhood hits on her—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 she’s serving. The cops say suicide, but Gillian and Jon, the hot guitar player in the house band, suspect foul play, and she intends to prove it. They dig deeper, grow closer, and make a shocking discovery. They know the murderer. Watch the trailer https://youtu.be/Mf-GlfxPzdY.

Know the Hero from Becker Circle

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, Jon’s bored. What does he do?
Typically Jon walks down the street to the George & Dragon where he always finds a cold beer, good food, and someone he knows. If he feels creative, he stays home, picks up his guitar, and writes a new song.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Jon’s not picky about what type of food, but he is picky about how it’s prepared. As a bit of a chef himself, burgers have to be lean with pink in the middle and Italian dishes must be at least nearly as good as his grandmother makes. He’s always prepared to cook a gourmet breakfast.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Jon’s best feature is the way he pulls off a look like he rolled out of bed and threw on a shirt, messy hair and all. His olive complexion and straight brown hair comes from his dad’s Italian roots. He’s in tee-shirts, sweatshirts, jeans, whatever’s comfortable—whether working with clients or onstage. Jon’s not picky about what he looks like as long as his clothes are clean and fit right.
Does he know how to fix things?
Jon’s talent is diffusing trouble at the bar before it gets out of hand and rescuing his friends when they’re in a bind. For anything else, he calls his apartment maintenance.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Jon watches his new friend, Gillian, dig a little too deep into the drug world to prove the man they saw die did not take his own life. They agree to work together but despite his warnings, she impulsively acts on clues. She doesn’t understand that her life is at stake. Sharing more will give away too much.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
He owns his own web design business, plays in a band, and lives in a community full of single people. The only kids Jon sees are those who stay with their parents on the weekends in the apartment community.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
Jon pulls off a very sexy just-rolled-out-of-bed look with tussled hair and a slightly wrinkled tee-shirt all the time without trying.
Can he use chopsticks?
Jon can use chopsticks in a crunch. He’d choose pizza, manicotti, or any Italian food over Asian most of the time.
Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?
Jon enjoys a large coffee with half-and-half in the morning, another thing he and Gillian have in common.
What apps would he have on his phone?
For Jon’s music life, he uses a metronome, tuner, all the music apps, and ride services to call for his friends when they’re in a bind. For work, he has website building apps as well as those for illustrating, editing photos, image sources, and file share for work and gig set lists.
Android or iPhone?
Android
Beard or clean-shaven?
Facial hair makes him itch.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
His dad was a cop and encouraged him not to go the pierce or tattoo route. When his dad was killed in the line of duty, Jon promised himself he never would.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Jon’s usually loaded down with guitars and amps, which doesn’t work well with trains and buses. He drives a red pickup truck with a treasured blue bandana hanging from the rearview. One of the Eagles band members threw it off the stage at a concert he went to with his dad.
Recycle or toss?
Toss. In the apartment living world, recycling isn’t available.
Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

The Witch of the Prophecy by Victoria Jayne

Divina’s had it with the prophecy.
​The vampire whose heart beats for a witch that belongs to a wolf shall save us all. He shall take his throne and rule over all kinds. If not, the vampire who belongs to the witch will end all kinds.
Divina’s not convinced the prophecy is about her. Her manipulative vampire ex-boyfriend, Rori, is reluctant to give up his love for her to pursue the throne. Meanwhile, the wolf shifter meant to claim Divina doesn’t believe in the prophecy. However, he does believe Divina is his mate.
With the pressures of the prophecy and the most powerful coven in the present-day United States, Divina is left to choose between complying with the prophecy and mating with Aric—or leaving it all behind to allow the catastrophic possibility of supernatural beings getting exposed to humans.
