Read the new White House Wedding by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #ContemporaryRomanceSeelie Kay, 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.

The White House Wedding by Seelie Kay

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When politics interferes with love, can love survive?

Getting married isn’t easy when your father’s the President of the United States! After reluctantly agreeing to a White House wedding, Sarah Lee Pearson, the president’s daughter, finds herself swept into a political maelstrom of unimagined proportions.

The White House staff and the first lady see the wedding as a political event, a way to sweep the president into his next term. Congress is complaining about the collateral costs. The media is delightfully rehashing every aspect of Sarah’s life, even those events that have nothing to do with the impending marriage. And the American public? Visions of an American royal wedding have swept them into a frenzy and vendors take advantage, making a quick buck off of everything from limited edition t-shirts to commemorative teacups.

Sarah and her fiancé, Sam, fight hard to ignore the craziness, but after learning a bounty has been put on their heads by an anti-government militia group, they have to decide whether a White House wedding is indeed worth it. And given all the hurtful controversy, perhaps a better solution is to not get married at all.

Why did you write this book?

It was a bit of a romp, really. I wanted to play off all the craziness that is politics and Washington, D.C. The creatures in the great swamp have become so predictable, a story about the political implications and hijinks of a White House wedding just flowed from my pen. Plus, I always found it interesting that a country that intentionally broke away from the monarchy, goes crazy over royal weddings. Admittedly, I am one of them. I won’t get up at 4 a.m. to watch, like so many of my friends, but I will tape a royal wedding and watch it later. And yes, I did seek teacups from Diana’s nuptials. Unfortunately, none were to be found. At least stateside. I imagine once she dumped Prince Charles, their value went up dramatically! Unfortunately, White House weddings are rare and although we go crazy over royal weddings, I doubt things would proceed so smoothly here. Every aspect of the wedding would be dissected and criticized by the media and political opponents, making the wedding itself a pretty negative experience, which is probably so few occur here.

 

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love mysteries and suspense, and obviously, I love romance!

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

Miss Marple.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on the fifth book in my Feisty Lawyers Series tentatively called the Martimus Project. It involves disappearing socialites, private prisons, and a deep sea habitat that uses prison labor! I’m also working on a new series that features a flamboyant attorney who is also a vampire!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The Martimus Project. Possibly the first book in my new series.

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.

Read the suspenseful Deadly Homecoming by Lorelei Confer @loreleiconfer #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseLorelei Confer, 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.

Deadly Homecoming by Lorelei Confer

Genre romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Madelyn (Maddy) returns home to arrange her mother’s funeral and has to face her biggest fear; her ex who broke her heart, but in oh so many more ways than one.

Garrett, her close childhood friend and FBI agent assigned to the human trafficking task force, gave his heart to her years ago and wants no other woman.

Does he have a second chance, or will her ex steal her from him again?

Why did you write this book?

This is the 5th book in the Deadly series and it carries a message, like all the other books in the series about awareness of human sex trafficking. So when I learned about Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) I wanted to share this message or knowledge with everyone. So many people and organizations have come forward to fight toward the eradification of human trafficking and I want everyone to know and be aware.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic Suspense and Mild Thrillers

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

Sam Elliott in the Christmas movie: “Prancer.”

What are you working on at the moment?

Oh, gee! I’m setting up a lot of promo. I have 4-5 books planned for release this year (see below). I also have two more in the Deadly series in various stages of writing and editing, etc. and then one more in the Saddle Creek series I’d like to finish to release in 2021. I’m also reintroducing the Deadly and Saddle Creek series with fresh covers so there will be a much needed change (I think) in the overall look. I’ve been working on another book as well that is not a part of either series, I hope to finish this year as well.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Deadly Homecoming on preorder now and will be released February 18th, 2020.

Linda O’Connor, 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.

Don’t Drop the Baby (Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor, Book 1) by Linda O’Connor

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is only second to her skill at matchmaking!

Ross Skye, owner of BabyCare, a high-end line of baby merchandise, is injured in an accident, and Brogan uses her cooking, medical – and matchmaking – skills to help him out. Dr. Lauren Ross is taking care of her nephew for two weeks, and Brogan agrees to babysit while Lauren is at work.

Two years ago, Ross and Lauren dated. At that time, Lauren wanted kids, but Ross wasn’t keen. Now the tables have turned, and Ross is trying to convince Lauren that they’d make an awesome parenting team. Brogan suggests they test drive parenthood by looking after a simulated baby for a week – a computerized version that eats, sleeps, wets, and cries. Ross and Lauren experience the “joy” of having a newborn firsthand, and the bar is set pretty low. Their first goal is: don’t drop the baby. The second goal is to find out if their love for each other will survive the test of…parenting.

Why did you write this book?

I thought it would be fun to write a romantic comedy series about a retired doctor who upgrades her M.D. from Medical Doctor to Matchmaking Doctor. Dr. Brogan Corkie brings couples together and gives them a nudge in the right romantic direction. A second romance overarching through all the books is Brogan’s romance. She practices what she preaches.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love reading romantic comedies, romance in general, and cozy mysteries.

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

My favourite fictional character is Andy Carpenter, a reluctant lawyer who helps solve mysteries in the Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt. He’s brilliant and funny (as is the author!).

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m editing the third book and writing the fourth book of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series. It’s a Christmas romantic comedy!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’ll be releasing Don’t Forget the Dog, Book 2 in May 2020 and Don’t Unravel the Past, Book 3 of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series in August 2020. And look for Book 4, a Christmas romance, in November. Can’t wait!

Read the new Alarik by Aurora Springer @AuroraSpringer #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceAurora Springer, 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.

Alarik by Aurora Springer

Genre science fiction romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): pg13

Two people fleeing their planets discover a shared destiny.

When an alien spacecraft crashes on Mars, the repercussions sweep throughout the solar system and endanger the fragile new alliance with the Warrish mermen.

Alarik Kenton Tallis, First of his Triad, is forced to infiltrate human society on Earth as a spy to insure his injured brother receives proper medical care. But when his transmissions are detected, he must flee the planet.

On Mars, Phoebe Wong, a veterinary scientist with dubious family connections, is desperate to escape the vicious gangs terrorizing the underground cities. She jumps at the chance to join the colonists bound for a distant exoplanet.

Their paths intersect on a space ferry bound for the outer planets. Trouble generated by the mysterious spacecraft pursues them to Jupiter. Will they find the answers in the oceans of Europa, the hyperspace gateway to the stars protected by three diverse species?

Why did you write this book?

This book is the fourth in my near-future science fiction series, Taxyon Space. The first three books told the story of how the marine biologist, Dr. Nikki Bell, discovered the alien mermen concealed in the oceans of Jupiter’s moon, Europa. Her meeting and romance with Kiron Arqin Ramis catalyzes an unequal alliance of humans and Warrish. The aliens bring hyperspace travel to humans in exchange for “volunteers” to fight in their battles.

I planned the fourth book, Alarik, as the first in a trilogy about three brothers, Alarik, Baswin and Karrik Kenton Tallis. After their youngest brother is disabled in combat, Alarik and Baswin agree to become covert agents on Earth to pay for their brother’s medical care. Each one will fall in love with a human woman. Their individual stories will connect with the mystery of the crashed ship and the struggle for humans to achieve interstellar travel.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I prefer to read science fiction and fantasy stories. Adventures combined with a romance are great.

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

Rather than giving one favorite character, I’ll give you an example of a character I admire. Eliza Bennet in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice sticks to her principle of marrying for love. After she realizes she has been mistaken about Mr. Darcy, she has to admit her mistake to him and to her dearest relatives in several embarrassing scenes.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am returning to my longest series, Grand Masters’ Galaxy, to complete the sixth book, Cosmic Lock. This series is science fantasy, starring a powerful, psychically linked couple, diverse alien species, including dragons, and hops between many different planets.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I would like to finish and publish Cosmic Lock. Afterwards, I’ll write Baswin, the next story in Taxyon Space. Also, I hope to write a second medieval romance to follow Dame Audrey.

Hard to Break by Kate Barnett @katebar30124379 #RLFblog #NewRelease #contemporaryromanceKate Barnett, 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.

Hard to Break by Kate Barnett

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Miranda Reed is a successful young marketing executive living in New York City. She has an active social life, a casual boyfriend, a fast track career, and a lot of confidence in herself. If she lacks real passion for her lifestyle and her work, she is too busy to notice. Adam Taylor lives life in the fast lane, focused on growing his real estate development business. He’s never met a woman who tempts him to carve out a place for her… until he meets Miranda.

When Miranda and her sister inherit their grandparents’ country estate, they are faced with a difficult choice. The property is too expensive to keep as a family retreat, but Miranda can’t bear to sell the place, with her fondest memories attached to it. Finding a creative solution to keep the manor provides a sense of purpose she’d never realized was missing.

The moment Adam and Miranda meet, their mutual attraction offers a tempting reprieve from her constant hard work. But when he becomes the unwanted management consultant running her renovation project, the prospect of a steamy affair becomes a lot more complicated. Still, Adam and Miranda cannot ignore the gravitational pull between them, and when they do come crashing together, the chemistry blows their minds. Inevitably, what starts out as a physical outlet for both of them evolves into a whole lot more.

By the time Adam and Miranda realize they belong together, their future is abruptly threatened. Miranda is viciously attacked by a malicious rival, and betrayed by somebody she trusts. Suddenly unsure of Adam’s loyalty, she shuts herself off from the closeness they shared. Adam is desperate to avenge the assault on Miranda and win back her trust, but after everything they have endured, is their love strong enough to survive?

Why did you write this book?

I think a lot of us fantasize about starting over, simply walking away from the major life choices we made in column A, and checking out what it’s like to live over in column B, instead. We see this happen a lot in stories after a character experiences a major loss, or has some other compelling motivation to chuck it all and start over. But what about starting over as a pioneering act? What if a character’s column A life is actually pretty good, but she’s brave and adventurous enough to walk away from it anyway, because her heart is pulling her in another direction? Miranda takes that step early in this book, leaving her perfectly successful Yuppie life behind her in New York to pursue a risky labor of love in the Pennsylvania countryside. I enjoyed crafting the ups and downs, the challenges and payoffs of her journey. These include her relationship with Adam, which brought a lot more than Miranda bargained for on all fronts… and in all the best ways! After she’s already uprooted her life and undertaken one very risky challenge, meeting Adam and falling for him brings her to another fork in the road. She struggles with whether following her heart to him is the right choice, or whether it would jeopardize the venture she has already risked everything for.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I devour romantic suspense novels, but I read a little bit of everything, based on my mood. I am always up for a good mystery or police procedural. Right now I am reading Where the Crawdads Sing, which is a beautiful novel by Delia Owens.

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

How does anybody choose one favorite character?! I am most inspired by female characters who are smart and strong and solve their own problems, but who are by no means perfect. One good example is Stieg Larsson’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

What are you working on at the moment?

In Hard to Break, I introduce Claudia Reed, Miranda’s sister, and Greg and Paul Taylor, Adam’s brothers. Their own stories are told in the final three books of the Fearless Hearts series, and I’m currently hard at work on all of them! The second book focuses on Claudia Reed, a designer and businesswoman who’s been burned by a past relationship and has vowed never to position another man between herself and her goals. Then she meets Jeremy MacDougall, a sexy celebrity statistician who is determined to deliver fun and romance to her all-business existence. Next comes the story of Greg Taylor, a cyber security expert who is so focused on his computer systems and booming business that connecting with a woman is way at the bottom of his priority list. Fate intervenes in the form of Lily Suarez, the doctor next door, and things get spicy pretty quick! Last but not least is youngest brother Paul, a brilliant scientist with a secret side hustle that gets him into trouble. When he seeks help from his recent one-night-stand, the introverted academic Audrey Sinclair, the pair is thrust into a temporary cohabitation, and they discover how interesting life together could be

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Great news for those of you who love to read books in a series — I expect to have Book Two, Against the Odds, out to you in mid-2020! And I hope to have the remaining two novels in the Fearless Hearts series out to readers within the next eighteen months –root for me!
