Genre Regency Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

A Scottish Earl on a quest for the elusive Comtesse de Fontenay rescues a French lady smuggler from the surf during a devastating storm, and takes shelter with her. As the stormy night drags on, he suspects his companion knows the woman he’s seeking, the one who holds the secret to his identity.

Marielle Plessiers may dress like a boy and go out with the local free traders, but she’s really the Comtesse de Fontenay. She trades in spirits, not secrets, but the information she holds will change Malcolm Comyn’s life forever.

Know the Heroine from The Comtesse of Midnight, in Storm & Shelter, a Bluestocking Belles with Friends Collection

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

She likes to enjoy a glass of fine imported brandy.

Some fresh hot buttered bread.

She is not a helpless female. She has learned to do many things for herself.

The storm that hit Fenwick on Sea was far stronger than anticipated. Now her sloop is beached, the mast broken and there’s no telling what will happen to it before the storm abates.

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

She is prepared to enjoy their company, or gently curb their exuberance if need be.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She is usually just turning in then, since her business requires her to work nights.

She finds proper British society a bit stuffy and delights in poking at the conventions.

Maid or takes care of herself?

Alas, her maid left months ago when she was unable to continue paying her salary.

Proper dress or casual clothes?

Most proper, when the occasion calls for it; and most improper when required.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

Buttoned, usually. It’s cold on the water.

Powdered wig or natural hair?

Powdered wigs went out of style ages ago, mon petit!

Carriage or horseback?

Horseback. Alas, the late Comte had to sell the carriage to pay debts.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Fated Hearts, A Love After All Retelling of the Scottish Play by Alina K Field

Genre: Regency Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Plagued by hellish memories and rattling visions of battle to come, a Scottish Baron returning from two decades at war meets the daughter he denied was his, and the wife he divorced, and learns that everything he’d believed to be true was a lie. What he can’t deny is that she’s the only woman he’s ever loved. They’re not the young lovers they once were, but when passion flares, it burns more hotly than ever it did in their youth.

They soon discover, it wasn’t fate that drove them apart, but a jealous enemy, who played on his youthful arrogance and her vulnerability. Now that old enemy has resurfaced, more treacherous than ever. When his lady falls into a trap, can he reach her in time to rescue this love that never died?

Why did you write this book?

Fated Hearts is part of the Tragic Characters in Classic Lit project, wherein a group of Regency romance authors are taking tragic characters and with complete artistic license, setting them in Georgian era England and giving them a happily-ever-after. I couldn’t resist the challenge of retelling Macbeth’s story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Historical romance, and historical mystery

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

Rupert Carsington, from Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible

What are you working on at the moment?

A Christmas novella for 2021 release.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In April, my novella The Comtesse of Midnight will appear in the Storm & Shelter Anthology.

Convincing the Countess, in Mistletoe and Mayhem, A Regency Holiday Romance Anthology by Alina K Field @AlinaKField #RLFblog #NewRelease #ReadaRegencyA business minded aristocrat finds himself pursuing a casual affair with a widowed countess… until love changes everything, in Alina K Field’s Convincing the Countess, a Regency Christmas novella.

Alina, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Convincing the Countess and Mistletoe and Mayhem, A Regency Holiday Romance Anthology.

Convincing the Countess by Alina K Field

Genre: Regency Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

There’s no Christmas like a Regency Christmas spent under mistletoe! New York Times Bestselling author Cheryl Bolen and friends invite you to discover true love in eleven deliciously steamy romances in this all-new holiday collection

In Alina K Field’s Convincing the Countess, a penniless widowed countess with trade in her blood descends upon the country manor of her sons’ negligent guardian, intent on confronting him and setting a course for her boys’ futures. Instead, she finds his younger brother, a business-minded aristocrat with a penchant for widows and a distaste for emotional entanglements. A man who once witnessed her greatest humiliation. A man offering tempting distractions that threaten to derail all her plans.

Called home at Christmas to bring his older brother to heel and sort out the family finances, a baron’s younger brother wishes nothing more than to finish the task and return to his railway project. But when he finds his mother entertaining a fetching widow he met many years earlier as the unfortunate bride of a ne’er-do-well earl, temptation steers him along a different track, one that may derail all his plans.

Can he convince the reluctant countess to set a course for her future that includes him?

Why did you write this book?

The business-minded hero is a secondary character in last year’s The Duke She Despised. I knew he had to have his own happily ever after!

What is your favorite genre to read?

I enjoy many, but I especially like historical romance and historical mystery.

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

Rupert Carsington, the hero of Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m just wrapping up Fated Hearts, a project for the Love After All Tragic Characters in Literature project, retelling the story of Macbeth as a Regency-set romance with a happily-ever-after; I’ve finished a novella called The Comtesse of Midnight, related to Fated Hearts for Storm and Shelter, a Bluestocking Belles and Friends Collection; and I’m also working on the first draft of a sequel to Convincing the Countess.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Fated Hearts, my Macbeth retelling, will be available at the end of December. Storm and Shelter is available now for preorder for the April 2020 release.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.

— Kayelle Allen
