Read the new Lacewood by Jessica James @jessicajames #RLFblog #NewRelease #womensfictionJessica James, 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.

Lacewood by Jessica James

Genre Women’s Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

A love story that spans centuries…

Two people trying to escape their pasts find a connection through an old house—and fulfill a destiny through the secrets it shares. Part love story, part ghost story, Lacewood is a timeless novel about trusting in fate, letting go of the past, and believing in things that can’t be seen.

Moving to a small town in Virginia is a big change for New York socialite Katie McCain. But when she stumbles across an abandoned 200-year-old mansion, she’s enthralled by the enduring beauty of the neglected estate—and captivated by the haunting portrait of a woman in mourning.

Purchasing the property on a whim, Katie attempts to fit in with the colorful characters in the town of New Hope, while trying to unravel the mystery of the “widow of Lacewood.” As she pieces together the previous owner’s heartrending story, Katie uncovers secrets the house has held for centuries, and discovers the key to coming to terms with her own sense of loss.

The past and present converge when hometown hero Will Durham returns and begins his own healing process by helping the “city girl” restore the place that holds so many memories. As the mystic web of destiny is woven, a love story that might have been lost forever is exposed, and a destiny that has been waiting in the shadows for centuries is fulfilled.

Rich in emotion and poignant in its telling, Lacewood is an unforgettable story about love and loss, roots and belonging…and spirits of the past that refuse to be quieted.

Why did you write this book?

To make a long story short, it has a little bit of everything I love…history, mystery, old houses, small towns, country life…and majestic trees. I also found a way to give readers two complete love stories. (One from this century and one from the 1860s).

What is your favorite genre to read?

Political thrillers

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

Mitch Rapp from Vince Flynn’s novels.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m still mulling over my next project. Readers are clamoring for another book in my Phantom Force Tactical series, so that is where I am leaning.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’m a slow writer so it takes me a year to write a new book. I am planning to do a box set of my Phantom Force Tactical series though.

Caroline Clemmons, 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.

Deborah’s Dilemma by Caroline Clemmons

Genre historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
What can Deborah do to protect herself from the devil plaguing her hometown?
Can a young man who’s been away for six years fit into the community he left?
What madman is responsible for the murder and mayhem plaguing Pearson Grove?
Deborah Taber has been concerned by her inability to choose a life’s occupation. That worry was pushed aside when someone shot her brother and fire bombed her family’s newspaper, The Pearson Grove Gazette. She believes Trey Pearson is innocent of attacking her brother—isn’t he? She’s had a crush on Trey since second grade and desperately wants to trust him.
Wade Pearson III, called Trey, is happy to be home on Pearson Ranch after six years in New England. He trained to manage his family’s far-reaching investments. Nothing prepared him to be accused of murder or targeted by a killer. If not for quick action by the sheriff, Trey would have been lynched by vigilantes. He wants to help trap the real villain while protecting Deborah, her family, and his.
Can Deborah and Trey survive the threats against them? Will this clever murderer be caught before he delivers his terrible revenge against those he believes slighted him?
Why did you write this book?
Deborah’s Dilemma is book 3 in my Pearson Grove Series set in North Central Texas in 1885. I wanted this series to explore the diverse young women in a small town, including their dreams and their efforts to achieve them.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical western romance and second would be Regency. I love 19th century history in particular and enjoy reading books set in that time.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Julie Garwood’s Prince Charming probably ties with Fallon from Louis L’Amour’s Fallon but for different reasons. Taylor has far more strength than she realizes and used her resources to rescue her niece and nephew and their companion. Fallon believes himself beyond redemption and yet he works harder than anyone to save the town he began as a scam.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m writing An Agent for Lily in the Pinkerton Matchmaker series. This new series is a popular series but this is my first contribution.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll have four more of the Pearson Grove series, another Proxy Brides, another Pinkerton Matchmaker, and two Christmas novellas. The rest of the year will be busy!

Seizing Hope by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticSuspenseSeelie 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.

Seizing Hope by Seelie Kay

Genre: Romantic suspense, contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Four flames
When four former law school classmates get kicked off the marriage train, they band together, put on their big girl panties, and fight back!
Former Northwestern Law School classmates Dina Willoughby, Miranda Mena, Leah Fraser, and Melody Harris are living the dream. Each had fantasized about the perfect husband while in law school and happily—for a time—that dream became a reality. Until Dina’s husband kicks her out two weeks before her prenuptial agreement kicks in, Miranda’s husband is arrested for securities fraud and flees the country with all of their money, Leah discovers that her royal husband misrepresented his feelings for her in order to get his hands on her money, and newly-pregnant Melody finally admits her artist husband is a sadistic, manipulative, jerk. Facing the loss of their husbands, and stripped of any financial support, the four women band together to fight back. Drawing on their unique legal skills and with the help of a few friends, including a hunky private investigator, a sexy law school professor, a determined cyber-security billionaire and the Queen of England, these four women not only take what’s theirs, they build the path to a new future, one filled with hope.
Why did you write this book?
I was asked to write a book about characters who were devastated by divorce, but picked themselves up and rebuilt their lives. I decided to write a story about how women are empowered when working together, drawing on each other’s strengths and bolstering each other’s weaknesses. I firmly believe that for every problem there is a solution and even at your darkest hour, if you can’t see it, someone who knows you well can. Multiple minds = effective solutions. These four former law school classmates had unique marriages and vastly different break-ups, yet they are all deserving of justice. Justice that sometimes, the courts alone cannot deliver.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love lawyer and detective fiction in the suspense genre, books like the Alex Cross series by James Patterson or J.D. Robb’s Dallas series. Obviously, I also enjoy romance, but I am starting to lean more toward paranormal stories—shifters, vampires, dragons. There’s just something about wolf shifters!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Lt. Eve Dallas, a homicide detective in the future, who is married to one hot and very rich Irishman!
What are you working on at the moment?
The third book in the Feisty Lawyers Series, “Cult.”
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to “Cult,” I am working on a new series about a lawyer who just happens to also be a vampire. Sometimes he uses his unique talents for good, other times, he uses them for his own selfish gains. He is a flawed man who has lived for hundreds of years, still searching for everlasting love.

A Foundation of Fear by Kim McMahill @kimmcmahill #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticSuspenseKim McMahill, 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.

A Foundation of Fear by Kim McMahill

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
FBI Special Agent Devyn Nash is obsessed with taking down Coterie, a deadly group out to control the multi-billion-dollar diet product industry. The FBI’s plan to expose Coterie places Devyn’s best friend and her partner’s fiancé in the crosshairs of this ruthless organization. Can Devyn protect her friend and bring the coldblooded killers to justice before they strike again while distracted by injury, a sexist bully, and a long-distance relationship with a handsome Wyoming sheriff?
Lobbyist and Coterie assassin Sofia Wilks wants nothing more than to regain control of her life. Sofia knows Agent Nash is nipping at her heels, but the FBI agent isn’t the worst of her fears. She is drawn to a man who has the power to destroy her.
Why did you write this book?
A Foundation of Fear is the third novel in the Risky Research Series. This story had to be written because FBI Agent Devyn Nash still has a lot of work to do to bring a deadly group to justice, and she has no intention of giving up on the smoking hot Wyoming sheriff who has stolen her heart.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love to read, write, and watch stories with filled with action, adventure, suspense and a bit of romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’ve read every book in Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series, so I guess I’d have to say, Dirk Pitt.
What are you working on at the moment?
I recently finished book four in the Risky Research Series, A Measure of Madness, and have sent it to my publisher. I also just completed a prequel novelette for the series, A Formidable Foe, which will be free to download. As soon as I kick off A Foundation of Fear, I’ll jump into book 5.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
It may be more than months, but I’m hoping A Measure of Madness isn’t too far behind A Foundation of Fear.
