Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Amber Daulton, author of Timeless Honor, a Time Travel Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Timeless Honor by Amber Daulton

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Jaye Ramsey decided to prove to her eccentric grandmother that time travel only existed in movies by vacationing in Bolivia with her friends. When she woke up in Hawksatter, England, 1735–the same town her grandmother supposedly vanished from as a young woman–Jaye found refuge at a hunting lodge but the strapping, reclusive baron who took her in reminded her all too well she was a lone woman at his mercy.

Accused of murdering his newly-wedded wife a decade earlier, Lord Lucas Kenway closed the family farm and shut out the world. He never expected the little spitfire he claimed responsibility for would turn his quiet life upside down. Pushed together by fate and his meddling servants, Lucas wanted Jaye on his own terms and refused to surrender his hardened heart.

Then a mysterious wise man offered Jaye a way home.

Should she return to the future and the only life she’d ever known, or stay in an uncertain past as a stranger in a new world?

Is it true:

This is your first book?

Nope. Timeless Honor is my sixth publication.

This book is part of a series?

Yes. It’s book three in the Mirrors of Time series, in which five authors each wrote a story. I enjoyed writing for this series so much that I wrote a second story, titled Timeless Beginnings, which is separate from the series but serves as a prequel for Timeless Honor. Both of my Timeless books are standalones.

You lost sleep while writing this book?

I always lose sleep when I’m writing. My mind just won’t shut down as I envision each scene and come up with dialogue.

You did do research for this book?

Oh, yes! Tons of research about the Salar de Uyuni (the salt flats in Bolivia) and about the Georgian era in England.

Some characters in this book are not human?

Most of my characters are human, expect for a few hunting dogs. I’m not sure how I would classify the mystical old wise man. He was supernatural, sure, but human? It’s hard to say.

This book has more than one genre?

True. It begins in modern day (a contemporary), but then the heroine travels through history (time travel) and winds up in the past (historical). So, technically, it fits into three sub-genres of romance.

You speak more than one language?

LOL! I wish.

You grew up where you live now?

True. I would love to move elsewhere, but my hubby and I have a good situation where we are.

You love to read?

Duh. I’m an author. Books and me? We’re tight.

You are never late?

Most of the time. Usually, I’m early.

You love pizza?

YES! With extra black olives, green peppers, and onion.

You love sushi?

Yes and no. No, as in I don’t like the food. Yes, as in I love and miss my departed cat Sushi with all my heart. She was such a sweet kitty and crossed the rainbow bridge about 12 years ago.

You have a pet?

I have two cats–Darby and Pepper–who are both 7 years old. I did have a third cat, Sox, but he passed away last month. He was only 3. I’m still grieving over Sox’s loss, but loving on Darby and Pepper soothes the pain.

Know the Hero from Timeless Beginnings by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #TimeTravelRomanceAmber Daulton, 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.

Timeless Beginnings by Amber Daulton

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Leonora Harris fled her newly wedded husband’s home in Georgian England, 1725, and took shelter in a cave during a rainstorm. She woke up in a cold, barren land and a handsome stranger with a mechanical carriage offered her shelter.

Undercover American operative Rodger Ramsey never expected to find a runaway bride in the magnificent Salar de Uyuni. Assigned to Bolivia to investigate Communist activities, he just wrapped up his two-year mission in 1963 and followed his heart to the salt flats one last time.

Sparks flew and attraction sizzled. The lost, stubborn woman kicked his protective instincts into overdrive. Rodger took her home with him, determined to help her before he returned to the States, and Leonora flourished under his guidance. Their hearts intertwined. He wanted her, needed her, but could he truly love a woman who believed she jumped two hundred years in time?

Will they find a way to stay together, despite the obstacles between them, or will Leonora survive in this strange new world alone?

Know the Hero from Timeless Beginnings

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

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

Since Rodger is a CIA agent on assignment in Bolivia in 1963, he doesn’t have a lot of off-time. When he gets bored, he checks on his contacts in the criminal underworld or spies on the Communist party that’s taking charge of the government.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Fruit. Chocolate or junk food is a rarity where’s he’s stationed, so he’s become accustomed to snacking on apples.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Slacks and sweaters.

Does he know how to fix things?

Rodger earned a degree in Engineering before he joined the feds, so he’s very capable with his hands. Which is great for his lady love, Leonora. *wink wink*

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

That’s classified. Sorry. Unless you have clearance? No? Next question.

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

He’s comfortable around them. He has three younger siblings, so he grew up in a large family.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Wide awake, alert. He’s trained his body to wake at a certain time.

Can he use chopsticks?

No way. He doesn’t have an opportunity to eat Oriental food anyway.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Nope. No coffee. He misses that luxury.

Android or iPhone? What apps would he have on his phone?

“Apps? Robots? What is Kayelle talking about?”

“Shh.” Yeah, sorry. Rodger was responding to that one. I’m shushing him.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven, most of the time.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. He’s too much of a square to take a walk on the wide side. Thank God that doesn’t apply to the bedroom, though, or Leonora wouldn’t be too happy.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Four-by-four jeep. Without it, he never would’ve found Leonora wandering around the flats.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Even though saving the environment wasn’t a widely spread notion back in the ’60s, he doesn’t believe in wasting things.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Introducing Claire Lauer from My Valentine Adventure, by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomanceLet’s meet Claire Lauer from My Valentine Adventure, a Contemporary Romance, by Amber Daulton. 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 story your author wrote.

My Valentine Adventure by Amber Daulton

Genre: Contemporary Romance

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

Parker Townsend is raising his children alone after he lost his wife, but then his ordered world is turned upside down when his two little hellions place a “Mom Wanted” ad in the local paper. To his chagrin, he’s roped into a blind date.

Claire Lauer answers the want ad with few expectations and meets Parker on Valentine’s Day, a day she hates with a passion. As an animal rights activist and a divorcée, she’s more comfortable with a placard in her hand than in the company of a handsome man with emotional baggage.

After a protest takes a turn for the worse, she seeks shelter in her date’s arms. Will Parker and Claire find the courage to lay their fragile hearts on the line, or will they lose their second chance at happiness?

Introducing Claire Lauer

Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 35

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Phoenix, Arizona

Profession: Fulltime gardener and sales associate at Sunny Garden Nursery

Ethnicity: Caucasian

What do you look like?

Oh, Lord. I knew you’d ask that question. Well, I’m five-feet-ten. I love wearing high heels, but sneakers are my go-to footwear. I have shoulder-length, honey-blonde hair and blue eyes. My thighs and hips are a little chunky, though, and I suck in my tummy way too often. Dieting doesn’t work with me, but that’s my fault. I just can’t lay off the nacho chips. Damn, they’re delish.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Parker Townsend. He’s six-feet-two with reddish-brown hair and blue eyes a few shades darker than mine. He works as an electrician and is a wonderful father to his children. He’s also totally droolworthy, but he doesn’t know it.

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

I live comfortably, which I prefer. My parents are wealthy and my ex-husband is a successful defense attorney, but he only married me for my father’s connections. The prick. Anyway, I’m teaching my daughter Kaylie the importance of self-reliance and that she doesn’t need material things to be happy.

What is your viewpoint on wealth?

Since we live in a capitalist society, some money is necessary to live a safe life, but riches and jewelry is not my cup of tea. As long as I make enough money to take care of myself, Kaylie, our rescue pets, and to pay the bills, then I’m happy. Of course, now that Parker and I are together, my little family has substantially grown. We’re pooling our resources and saving on expenses by living together.

Do you see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?

It’s black-and-white. There’s wrong and right, bad and good. I’m open-minded enough to know everyone makes mistakes, but when someone is purposely doing something cruel and someone else is paying the price…my temper blows. I don’t mean to preach, but I don’t like zoos, circuses, or any event that uses and abuses animals. How can stabbing an elephant with a sharp poker be a good thing? Really?

If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?

That every animal enslaved in circuses and non-compliance zoos the world over will be rescued and sent to live in the wild or in a wildlife sanctuary. Unfortunately, that will probably never happen. The financial cost to provide the environment that the animals would need would be too great. Then add in the campaigns to reshape public opinion. It’s not an affordable option on the grand scale.

What is your biggest personal flaw?

I care too much about the people and animals around me, so I’m often hurt when things don’t turn out as I’d hoped. I hide behind a strong mask, but inside, my personal demons take a toll.

Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.

Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.

When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?

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

Meet Jarrett Brandt from A Hero's Heart by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome Jarrett Brandt from A Hero’s Heart, a new Romantic Suspense by Amber Daulton.

Meet Jarrett Brandt

Age: 28

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Washington State

Profession: DEA agent

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m a little over six feet tall. I have chin-length dark-brown hair, and it’s a little shaggy since I’ve been undercover with a criminal organization for a while. Gotta look the part, ya know? Anyway, I have dark eyes and a killer smile… or so says the ladies.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I made a lot of mistakes as a teenager, but I’ve since straightened out my life. I love my job with the DEA, especially when I’m on an undercover assignment. I thought I was happy until I headed home to pay my respects to my twin brother, who died in the line of duty a few years earlier.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Marissa Reinn Brandt. She was my high school sweetheart and the love of my life. But then I left home and her behind. She married my brother, but the relationship didn’t last. Now I’m back and determined to do right by her and her son, my nephew. Marissa and the boy, Jason, mean everything to me.

How does your hero dress?

In jeans and a leather jacket. Thank God it’s wintertime. He loves that dang jacket and often wears it even in the summer. It’s wonder he’s never suffered heatstroke.

If you could only hear this character’s voice (but not see him) what characteristic would identify him?

His deep, rumbling, seductive voice. The man’s sexy. I can’t deny it.

How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?

He graduated from high school and hit the road, leaving town and not planning to return. After a few years of doing drugs and squandering his life, the police picked him up and the DEA offered him a deal. Turns out, some of his friends were involved in an underage prostitution ring, and it sickened him. He agreed to help the feds in exchange for his freedom. After he cleaned himself up and brought down the lowlifes, he stayed on with the agency. Everything he learned of importance since then came from federal training and life experiences.

What does he have a knack for doing?

Pretending to be the villain in order to do the right thing.

What is your character’s family like?

Jarrett’s parents embody the typical middle-class family. Though they lost one son due to a heartbreaking incident and the other due to drugs and lifestyle choices, they treat Marissa, their daughter-in-law, like a flesh-and-blood daughter. They love and support her, and will always rally behind her and their grandson.

Is he close to family?

Not at all. As a child and teenager, Jarrett was the misfit, the black sheep. He always butted heads with his judgmental policeman father. Though he and his twin got along, Jarrett resented him for being the golden child. He loved his mother, but his father always divided them. Now that he’s finally back home, he’s still at odds with his dad, but he’s handling the problems like an adult, not a rebellious kid. He’s repairing his relationship with his mom and rekindling his love with Marissa. He adores his nephew.

Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?

Oh, yes. He has to as a federal agent. Lives depend on his silence, but with Marissa, it’s hard for him to keep anything from her. And often, he doesn’t.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

I think she knew I needed redemption after all the mistakes I’ve made. I yearned for a second chance, but I wouldn’t admit it to myself for the longest time. Amber knew that and forced me down the path of forgiveness and acceptance. I’m grateful she did. I’ve missed my family, and most of all, Marissa.

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?

Well, now that it’s out in the open, I can talk about it. Amber should’ve known better than to tell the readers about my last assignment. I was undercover with a ruthless drug gang and barely got out of there alive. The boss put a bounty on my head, for God’s sake. It’s all over now, but damn. That was a stressful time.

When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?

She loves writing about Marissa and me. You should see her eyes light up when I’m kissing my girl or taking her to the bedroom. My author definitely has a naughty side.

She gets sad when writing about my past, though. I told her everything that happened, all the stupid shit I did, and she added it to the story without downplaying the seriousness. She believes in honesty, and I respect her for it, even though she revealed some secrets she shouldn’t have.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

Amber likes happy endings and redeeming people like me. Everyone makes mistakes. That’s a fact of life. But if you own up to it and try to make amends, it makes you a better person. She tells those kinds of stories because she wants to inspire and give hope to anyone who needs it, and to give them a few hours of reading enjoyment.
