Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology by Carly Carson @Carly_Carson #RLFblog #NewRelease #Contemporary RomanceCarly Carson, 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.

Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine’s Day Anthology by Carly Carson, et. al

Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Sweeter than chocolate and hotter than your heart’s desire.

Celebrate the day of love with sixteen sweet and spicy stories from some of your favorite USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Authors. Brimming with love, passion, and angst, this anthology will satisfy your sweet tooth, set your heart on fire, and leave you yearning for more.

So tear into your favorite box of Valentine’s Day chocolates, pour a glass of wine, and start reading for some decadent, melt-in-your-mouth Valentine-themed romances.

Why did you write this book?

I had already started a series about British dukes. I’ve always been interested in marginalized people, and how they retain their cultures, so I knew I wanted to incorporate the Romany people, which required me to move the story to Europe. Then I love to ski, so I thought it would be fun to include a bit of that sport. And voila! Royal Masquerade (my story in this anthology) was born.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read almost every romance genre, but my favorites are contemporary, military, and romantic suspense.

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

I would have to say Aragorn, from Lord of the Rings, because I do love heroic figures!

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on another book in my series about British dukes, the Duke of Renfren. When all you have is a noble title…

You just might need your adolescent crush and next-door neighbor, Lady Sarah Devonwood, to shake up your world and teach you what’s important in life.

 

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I have another story in my British Dukes series well underway. Please look for the Duke of Coventry.
Ariel struggles to support herself making pastries in a small English town. At night, she dances alone under the stars. The heir to an impoverished dukedom could easily fall in love with the mysterious dancing nymph, but he needs to marry the Lady Godiva movie star currently making a movie at his castle.

Meet Lynn Chantale @ lynnchantale Author of Stealing Christmas #RLFblog #Romance #Mystery Collections and AnthologiesLynn Chantale, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Stealing Christmas.

Stealing Christmas by Lynn Chantale

Genre: Romance Collections and Anthologies

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Secrets abound in Benson’s Bakery. A crazed Santa wants something valuable hidden inside the building, and only two things stand in his way…Jake and Sara.

When Sara Henderson receives threatening letters just days before Christmas, she asks sexy bread baker Jake Benson for help. Jake is more than happy to provide the muscle to keep the beautiful cake decorator from harm, but he has an ulterior motive–to steal a kiss under the mistletoe. Sara wants that kiss as much as he does, but first they have a mystery to solve.

Will they find out who is stalking Sara, or will Santa succeed in stealing Christmas?

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What makes you different from other people?

Aside from being blind with a guide dog? As a person I’ve embraced some of the shall we say more eclectic parts of personality such as a fondness for BDSM, enjoying relationships with other ethical non-monogamous folks, and finding my way as an empty-nester and divorcee.

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

My favorite topic is books. I could talk for hours about the books I’ve read or plan to read. It’s a good thing I joined a book club. ;-)

What is your favorite meal?

My absolute favorite meal is one I don’t have to cook. Other than that, sloppy joes and french-fries.

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

I’d always had the writing bug. As far back as elementary school I wrote about a precocious four-year-old with a talent for solving mysteries. Later it turned into wanting something more realistic and more like me. There’s nothing wrong with romances being set on a ranch or to hand out with billionaires, but this inner-city girl wanted to read about other African American characters in less glamorous situations.

When you go to a convention, what kinds of things do you take along?

When going to conventions, I take anxiety meds and plenty of swag, such as sewing kits, lip balm and ink pens. There have been a few T-shirts and tote bags too.

What are your writing goals for this year?

The writing goals for 2019 have been accomplished. As for 2020, I’m looking forward to putting out at least four new books.

The Duke She Despised by Alina K Field, in the Winter Wishes Regency Holiday Romance Anthology

Genre Regency Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

The new Duke of Kinmarty has lost everyone who mattered and gained naught but a title, and debt, and an old pile of a castle. When a fetching new housekeeper appears on his doorstep frantic to ready the place for the Yuletide, he seizes the chance for a respite from grieving and pretends to be the new duke’s estate factor.

With her cousin’s children due to arrive from India, a vicar’s widow hides her identity and takes a position as housekeeper to the children’s dreadful uncle, the man who years ago sabotaged her own chance for happiness. Overwhelmed by a castle understaffed and in disarray, she forges a bond with the new duke’s charming but not very competent factor, not knowing that he’s hiding something as well.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

I love to write all kinds of romance–paranormal, contemporary, sci-fi, and fantasy. It’s fun and challenging to switch up genres, but I always write romance with a HEA.

How do you come up with ideas?

Ideas come from everywhere–a snippet of conversation, an online article, a movie or television show. Sometimes ideas seem to pop in my mind from out of nowhere. That’s the fun of being a writer.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?

The characters. Everything begins and ends with them. They tell me their stories.

When did you write your first book?

I wrote my first book back in 1995, but my first book wasn’t published until October 27, 2004. That book was Annabelle Lee, which is available today as Uncovering Annabelle. I just celebrated my 15th year as a published author. It’s been a blast. I look forward to the next fifteen years.
