New series: Thea, De Wolfes of Esterley Castle by Alexa Aston @AlexaAston #RLFblog #NewRelease #RegencyRomance Alexa Aston, 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.

Thea (The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle Book 3) by Alexa Aston

Genre: Regency romance

Book heat level: PG13

He’s a virgin who almost died at Waterloo… and now finds himself a duke.

She’s been told that kissing is important and if she likes a man and has the opportunity… she should take it.

Lady Thea de Wolfe breaks her leg, causing her to miss her first London Season, one in which her sister, Diana, becomes the Countess of Merrifield and Thea’s best friend, Amelia, weds Thea’s brother, Lord Reston. Seeing those closest to her find love has led Thea to dare to dream of the possibility of love coming to her.

Major Adam Ashbury arrives home from war to discover his cousin recently died in a phaeton accident, making Adam the new Marquess of Trumbull. Before he can get used to having a title, his uncle dies and the former military man finds himself woefully unprepared to be the Duke of Durham. Adam can’t even dance–but he longs to find a duchess and create a new life for himself, one in which family and love play equally important roles.

A funeral first brings Adam and Thea together, followed soon by a house party, where their growing attraction finds fertile ground to blossom. Though other single women vie for new duke’s attention and Thea’s guardian is determined to keep her from kissing anyone before she makes her come-out, true love runs its natural course for the pair.

Thea is Book 3 in The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle and a part of the De Wolfe Pack Connected World. It can be read as a standalone. Only 99 cents!

*Look for Diana and Derek, the romances for Thea’s siblings, which also read as standalones.

Why did you write this book?

I had been asked to write in Kathryn Le Veque’s de Wolfe Connected World and decided to do three novellas that told the stories of three de Wolfe siblings during the Regency Era. Diana was released in July. She won the heart of Lord Oliver Merrifield, a dashing, delightful man who’d won my heart (and readers)–but he hadn’t gotten an HEA of his own. Derek released in August and was the next de Wolfe to find his soulmate. Now, it’s Thea’s turn to find a dashing duke and lasting happiness.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I enjoy reading thrillers most of all, but I recently enjoyed reading Lost Roses for my monthly book club. It focuses on the lives of three women during World War I. As a former history teacher, I gobble up anything historical!

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

A character who always continues to move me is Atticus Finch.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’ve just finished up Books 4 and 5 for my St. Clairs series. Defending the Duke releases October 8 and Suddenly a St. Clair comes out December 3. That will wrap up this Regency romance series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Defending the Duke and Suddenly a St. Clair are the last two novels I’m publishing in 2019; however, I have a Christmas novella featuring Luke and Caroline St. Clair in the upcoming collection Stars are Shining Brightly. It features ten Dragonblade Publishing authors and can be preordered now for 99 cents. https://amzn.to/2k00tpY

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.

Read First Change, a fantasy by Helen Henderson @history2write #RLFblog #Fantasy #RomanceHelen Henderson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about First Change.

First Change: Legends From The Eyrie by Helen Henderson

Genre Romance Fantasy

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

The dragshi are more than just a man or woman. Each are two beings–one a dragon, the other a human–sharing one body in space in time and able to change forms with the other at will. Their world and the adventures of the dragon shifters are recorded in the Dragshi Chronicles. Unlike the previous works in the series, which related the tales of the trader girl Anastasia and Lord Branin Llewlyn, First Change contains five stories of duty and honor, love and loss, happiness and despair from the history and myth of the world of dragshi.

Within each of the Dragshi Chronicles, the ceoltiers, the keepers of the past and teachers of the present, recount some legend. First Change features the full story behind the legends only given brief reference in the previous volumes. As with all such tales, some contain larger than life deeds. Others are the simple story of a man or woman doing what must be done, regardless of the cost. But a lesson to be learned. When you shift into dragon form, sometimes Fate controls the flight.
