Is It True: Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Cynthia Terelst @cynthiaterelst #RLFblog #romanceCynthia Terelst pens the Australian Romance Let Sleeping Dogs Lie. The multiculural second-chance contemporary romance includes a scavenger hunt.

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, Cynthia Terelst, author of Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, a contemporary romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Cynthia Terelst

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Will one of the treasures they find be each other’s heart?

It’s been five years since Tara walked out of Shepherd’s life without a word. Since then he’s spiralled through drugs, alcohol and empty relationships, with Tara on his mind the whole time. Now he wants to win her back, and what better way to do it than by creating a fake scavenger hunt? He knows she won’t be able to resist.

Tara’s lost enough loved ones and she didn’t want to see Shepherd added to that count. So, when she saw him high at graduation, she did the only thing she could – she walked away. When she’s teamed up with him for a million dollar scavenger hunt, the feelings reignite. For a second chance at love to work, she needs to be brave enough to open up to him, to tell him everything she withheld the first time around.

Shepherd didn’t realise how much winning would mean to Tara. He now needs to come up with $3 million for her foundation before the hunt is over. If he can’t he will need to tell her its all fake, and he doesn’t know if he can risk that.

Will secrets destroy them a second time around?

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. This is my second published book. My first one was The Cat’s out of the Bag, a billionaire romance set in Australia which includes a homeless cat and a road trip.

this book is part of a series?

Yes, the Love Down Under series. The books in the series are all stand-alones, what ties them together is the location, Australia.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

No. I don’t lose sleep about much.

you did research for this book?

Yes. I needed to research the places where the scavenger hunts took place. Some of them I’ve visited in person.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes, there are three dogs in this book – Benny, Billy and George.

this book has more than one genre?

No. It is a contemporary romance only.

you speak more than one language?

No, just English. Unless swearing is considered its own language.

you grew up where you live now?

No, I grew up thousands of kilometers away in Melbourne, Victoria. I now live in sunny Queensland. I moved for a better work life balance and the warmer weather.

you love to read?

Yes. I wish I had more time to read. I try to read every day.

you are never late?

No, I am always late. I just can’t seem to get anywhere on time. I was glad when my work set an 8am meeting, which then forced me to get to work when I was supposed to.

you love pizza?

Yes. Pizza is great. When I was younger my favourite was Mexicana with pineapple. You might think it’s weird, but I thought it was great.

you love sushi?

Yes, I do enjoy sushi. I’ve even tried making it myself and it didn’t turn out too bad. It’s easier to buy though.

you have a pet?

Yes, I have two cats, Kimmy and Possum. And I foster kittens for a local rescue. I don’t have any kittens in care at the moment.

Brenda Sparks author of Alpha Revealed, shares a #TechTip for passwords @brenda_sparks #RLFblogBrenda, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We want to hear your tech tip, but first, please tell us about Alpha Revealed.

Alpha Revealed by Brenda Sparks

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Natasha Peterhoff is the luckiest vampire in the world. Having pined over the sexy, but aloof Vladimir Starikovich for centuries, her feelings are reciprocated when the pair are drawn to each other the night of her brother’s wedding. Unfortunately, the stark light of day dawns, and the couple parts ways.
Back in Siberia, Vlad is overcome by doubts. Not only will Natasha’s brother kill him, but his own past is reason enough to keep her away. He vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe, even it if means never seeing her again.
With so many reasons to stay apart, will the ties that bind be strong enough to pull them together?

Tech Tip

Happy Father’s Day! Here is a tech tip that I hope everyone, not just fathers, will find useful. I know Vladimir, the hero in Alpha Revealed, would have appreciated hearing this tip, especially after his baby was born.

Many of us have video cameras attached to our Wi-Fi. Perhaps you have a video doorbell or security camera. Maybe you there is a baby monitor in your home with video capabilities. If you have any of these, you must be careful. Hackers are using these cameras to spy on homeowners. You’d be amazed what hackers can find out about you just by watching and listening in.

A strong password is the key to keep the hackers out of your life, whether it’s a website you frequent, your social media, or even the video camera in your home. Most everything we do now requires a password, and while it can be tricky to memorize a bunch of complicated passwords, it’s necessary to keep you and your family safe.

Here are some tips for creating a password:

Make it long — This is the most important factor. Make it at least 15 characters or more if possible.

Use a mix of characters — Use a combination of uppercase and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols.

Avoid common substitutions — Password crackers are hip to the usual substitutions. Whether you use DOORBELL or D00R8377, a brute force attacker can hack your account/device easily.

Don’t use sequential letters and/or numbers —For example, avoid ABCDEF or 456789, and do not use sequential keyboard paths either (like qwerty).

Long, complicated passwords can be difficult to memorize. Try stringing what seem like random words and numbers together then make a sentence to help you remember them. For example, if your password was Battery10horsescar, you might remember it by memorizing the sentence, A battery of 10 horses pulled the car.

Of course, you can also use an app to store your passwords, eliminating the need to memorize anything. Password manager apps can be downloaded onto your phone. Many will give you the ability to store passwords, as well as, user login info and credentials. Many will also sync the information across your desktop, mobile devices, and browsers. Some password manager apps can even allow you to share a login information with another person. These apps can be a time saver by storing all your information in one place. You don’t need to go hunting for a password, because it’s there at your fingertips with a press of a button.

Don’t make it easy for the hackers. Do whatever you must to keep you and your family safe. I know Vladimir would.

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Charlie from Running Haunted by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss @RobsRescues #Ghost #RLFblog #PetsEffrosyni Moschoudi, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We support all furbabies, real life or fictional. We want to know all about your Fiction Furbaby, but first, please tell us about Running Haunted — and the ghost.

Running Haunted by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre paranormal romantic comedy (with a ghost!)

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Kelly ran a marathon… and wound up running a house. With a ghost in it.

Kelly Mellios is a stunning, athletic woman, who has learned–the hard way–to value herself. Having just finished her first marathon in the alluring Greek town of Nafplio, she bumps into Alex, a gorgeous widower with three underage children, who is desperately looking for a housekeeper.

The timing seems perfect, seeing that Kelly aches to start a new life, and Nafplio seems like the ideal place to settle down. She accepts the position on the spot, but little does she know that Alex’s house has an extra inhabitant that not even the family knows about…

The house is haunted by Alex’s late wife, who has unfinished business to tend to. By using the family pet, a quirky pug named Charlie, the ghost is able to communicate with Kelly and asks her for help. She claims she wants to ensure her loved ones are happy before she departs, but offers very little information about her plans.

Kelly freaks out at first, but gradually finds herself itching to help. It is evident there’s room for improvement in this family… Plus, her growing attraction towards Alex is overpowering.

Will Kelly do as the ghost bids? How will it affect her? And just how strange is this pug?

“Another charming book from Effrosyni. Read it, and you’ll be transported to Greece & never look at a dog the same way again!” ~Just Me.Mo, Amazon UK reviewer

“A fast-paced original story with attention to detail and engaging dialog. A heartfelt emotional read, with family love, romance and a lovable ghost. I highly recommend it.” ~Sheri Wilkinson, Amazon US reviewer

Meet Charlie (not the ghost) from Running Haunted

Full name: Charlie
Nickname: None
Gender: Male
Species: Pug
Physical description: Young, agile, playful, but quirky. Known to freeze occasionally, eyes glazing over, when his deceased Mommy speaks to him…
Relationship to main character: Kelly is hired to run the house Charlie lives in.

Relationship to the villain/antagonist: The antagonist, Stella, lives next door. She doesn’t care for dogs!

Where this furbaby came from: Charlie has been with the family since he was a baby.

What inspired you to create this character?

I wanted Lauren, the spirit in the story, to have some kind of medium at her disposal so she can communicate with Kelly. When I thought that her beloved dog (from when she was alive in the house) could play that part, I quickly decided on a pug, because I wanted the dog to be both goofy and quirky. Pugs have such unique faces that could easily be imagined by the reader as cute and hilarious when needed, plus, they’re great with children too. It was an easy choice!

What does the main character think about this furbaby?

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Charlie from Running Haunted by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss @RobsRescues #Ghost #RLFblog #PetsAt first, Kelly is cautious because Charlie barks at her and generally is difficult to handle seeing that he has never been walked or properly trained. Soon, though, the two become inseparable, especially since the pug proves very effective in helping her communicate with the ghost spirit that haunts the house!

How do other characters react to or interact with this furbaby?

Alex, Kelly’s boss and love interest, has a soft spot for Charlie because his deceased wife used to adore him from when he was a puppy. His three underage boys also love Charlie, and he makes everyone laugh with his antics. The youngest of the boys, Tommy, has a special bond with the dog. The two of them are always together in the house, and even at night, Charlie never leaves the boy’s bedroom. Secretly from the others, the pug brings him fashion jewelry items that belonged to Tommy’s mother, and the boy puts them on the pug when they play together in his room.

What does this furbaby add to the story?

Charlie is haunted by the spirit of Lauren and his character is key for the spirit’s communication with the heroine, Kelly. Kelly is able to hear the spirit’s voice and even see her face in the mirror sometimes, but only when the pug is around! That’s why she likes to keep the dog close to her. As the story unfolds, Kelly becomes determined to help everyone with their individual problems by following the spirit’s advice to the letter. And this could never be possible without good old Charlie tagging along!

What about this furbaby will readers like, and why?

His goofiness, his playfulness, and his occasional naughtiness. In one scene, he even gives Kelly a little bite but he has a good reason! I also think the readers will love Charlie’s fondness for Kelly, which grows as the story progresses, reflecting the gradual strengthening of the bond of friendship between Kelly and the ghost.

Please share an interesting fact or tidbit about this furbaby.

Since Lauren died, Charlie doesn’t let anyone sit at the head of the dining table. He growls and barks whenever someone makes a move to sit on it. When Lauren was alive, she used to sit there holding Charlie in her lap as she ate her meals with the family…

Describe a humorous incident involving the animal character.

During the early days of Kelly’s presence in the house, she was carrying the washing in the laundry basket one morning to take it outside and hang the clothes on the line. Charlie followed her to the front gate and started barking loudly and jumping about. When she opened the door, house keys in hand, he caused a fuss trying to follow her outside and as she tried to stop him, the keys slipped off her hand. Quick as a flash, and presumably thinking this was a game, Charlie took the keys and bolted indoors. With Kelly standing outside at the time, the door slammed shut out of the blue, leaving her locked out and feeling quite miserable for a while (until a kindly neighbor came to the rescue!)

About Loulou

Which, if any of the pets in your writing are modeled after your own pets? In what way?

I used to be a dog person and thus wound up featuring only dogs in my novels so far. That changed last year when I saved a female young cat from the street which I named Loulou (short for ‘louloudi’, which is Greek for ‘flower’). She’s such a gentle soul, all paws and not a claw in sight when I interact with her, and she made me a cat person in no time. This means I will inevitably start featuring her in many ways in my future heroines’ lives.

What do your pets do when you are writing?

Loulou loves to doze off, always in the warmest/sunniest spots, naturally. She had a litter of four kittens three months ago, and I found loving homes for the three, keeping the fourth one as I fell in love with it. So now I have two cats and the little one (haven’t named it yet!) keeps Loulou entertained and busy all day. Loulou trains her baby in big and small ways every day, and they also wrestle a lot for fun. Sometimes, I can hear Loulou’s high-pitched protestations as I work, because the kitten likes to bite her ear and won’t let go. They’re both very playful seeing that Loulou is still very young herself – not even one year old yet, from what I can gather.

What’s the most unusual pet you ever had?

The most unusual pet I’ve ever had was a hamster, Romeo, who was very cuddly. I am sorry to say he passed away after just a few months of having him, quite suddenly too, and it was most upsetting. It put me right off getting another hamster, otherwise I’d definitely get another. I loved to place him flat on my outstretched palm and stroke his back as I watched TV on the sofa in the evenings. He would always fall asleep in no time, back legs stretched out hanging over the sides of my hand, and snoring loudly. He made me laugh so much, bless his little soul, and I still laugh when I think of the happy times. I always found the sight of him having a boiled pea absolutely delightful for some reason (I boiled a lot of peas at the time because of that, LOL)

Where did you find your pet?

My cat Loulou showed up in my garden one day and decided to stay. Later, I found out she had been born in the garden of a house nearby. At first, she was timid and very fearful. After feeding her a couple times, she let me touch her and pet her, and she never left the house ever since. She’s very vocal, which is so much fun, and we have the most hilarious conversations.

What do you feed your pet?

Kibble, and cat treats for extra vitamins. Occasionally, a tin of cat food, or leftovers that are safe for her to eat.

Describe a toy or favorite item your pet loves.

Loulou has no favorite item. All she seems to do whenever I see her is seek my hand. She’ll look up and meow, then sway her head from side to side until I pet her on the top of her head. It’s hilarious. Neediest cat in the world, and a little loopy, but I certainly don’t mind. I love her to bits! J

Shout out to CARE-Corfu Animal Rescue Establishment

The charity started in 2003 when 8 puppies were found close to death in a dustbin. All were nursed back to health and subsequently, literally thousands of animals have been re-homed either in Greece, Germany, Austria and the UK.
CARE presently has a small shelter near Sidari, situated in the north of the Greek island of Corfu. With limited space and facilities, this means we sadly cannot take in all the reported strays but CARE has a mobile unit and along with groups of volunteers, CARE has set up feeding stations and the sterilization of these animals wherever possible.

When she arrives, she learns it was a prank set up by her cousin. Only it isn’t funny, it’s deadly when Emilee becomes the target of a serial killer.

Jeremy Hanks had a bad feeling about Emilee Sawyer but the reserve could use some positive exposure after all the mudslinging of a local developer.

Idabelle Aylor is a small-town girl who has done big town things. From spending many months on an aircraft carrier working directly with planes on the flight deck, to jumping out of a plane, to driving a race car, this girl has done some fun stuff! Since she was a girl, people watching, family stories, and life adventures have gotten her creative juices flowing like mad, and because of that she’s had stories brewing in her head, fighting to get out and down on paper, since she can remember. Nowadays, when she isn’t relaxing on the porch swing, or in her little trailer named ‘Story’ writing her next greatest book about all things love (including, of course, happy endings!), she’s hanging with her best friend/husband and her crazy, fun kiddos creating new adventures to use in her stories and remember for a lifetime.
