Read the story of Ganina in Warlord by Miriam Newman @miriamnewman #RLFblog #NewRelease #fantasy historical romanceMiriam Newman, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Ganina in Warlord.

Warlord by Miriam Newman

Genre fantasy historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Given like a toy to a famous old warlord, Ganina is a young girl with love to give. When he and his oldest son die, it is rumored that a younger son, Senec, engineered their deaths. She has no choice but to cast her lot with Senec, but is he a murderer?

Why did you write this book?

This book was inspired by my previous book, Spirit Awakened. They can be read in conjunction, but Warlord is written as a stand-alone.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I like nearly any sub-genre of romance, but especially fantasy and historical.

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

Oh, I was a die-hard King Arthur fan from the get-go.

What are you working on at the moment?

Right now I’m finishing up two historical romances that are a prequel and sequel to my book The Comet.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Later this year I will release Land of Shadow, historical romance set against the Siege of Jerusalem. In 2021, I anticipate releasing my historical novels, Flame and Clothilde, which are set around the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. And finally, later in 2021 I am trying my hand at a completely new-to-me concept, an ancient times romance set just before the Bronze Age.

Fantasy poetry driven by myths and legends has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I was published in poetry before catching the romance writing bug. I bring that background to my writing along with a lifelong addiction to horses, an 18 year career in various areas of psychiatric social services and many trips to Ireland, where I nurture my muse. My published works range from contemporary fantasy romance to fantasy historical, futuristic, science fiction and historical romance. Currently I live in rural Pennsylvania with a “motley crew” of rescue animals. You can see my books at www.miriamnewman.com

Read the new #PNR Bewitched by Beth Caudill @beth_caudill #RLFblog #NewRelease #ParanormalRomanceBeth Caudill, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Bewitched.

Bewitched by Beth Caudill

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Guardian angel Leyna Angelheardt travels the world trying to guide children to their brighter futures. However, free will rules the human spirit, and after she loses three charges, her heart needs healing before she can continue her calling. Directed toward the magically protected town of Willows Haven, she faces her greatest challenge.

Vithar Woodward runs the small town newspaper with his twin brother. But his family harbors a dark secret: a century ago, an incubus cursed them to spend their days shapeshifted into animals. Now with only a few days until the curse culminates, Vithar knows his only hope is to find true love and nullify the curse. Yet he wonders who would ever love a man who spends half his days as a barred owl.

When Leyna and Vithar meet, it becomes clear that fate has drawn them together. As sparks dart between them, Leyna must decide if she should remain a guardian angel or embrace this new existence of loving a mortal.

For after all, what is more magical than true love?

Why did you write this book?

This is the second story in my Willows Haven series which is a part of the Zodiac Shifters author collective. I choose to use Gemini for my character inspiration because both my husband and mother have early June birthdays. The curse for this story was inspired by Ladyhawke. It’s a great fantasy movie but I never liked that there was no end-date to the hero and heroine’s affliction. So in my version, the curse continues for 101 years and my hero and his twin are the ones who transform into a wolf and an owl.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Epic Fantasy. Different worlds, heroic quests, magic and political intrigue. But Dark Fantasy and Paranormal Romance are favorites too with a few Urban Fantasy books for variety.

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

Daemon from Anne Bishop’s Black Jewel series. He’s deadly but elegant with a soft heart unless you cross him.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently working on a Bonus Epilogue for Healer’s Fate (the first in my Paranormals of Arilase series) to give to my newsletter subscribers. Next week, I hope to start plotting the third and final book in my Willows Haven series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

My next release won’t be until the end of December which will be the third book in my Willows Haven series. I’ll have completed two trilogies and be ready to work on brand new series. I haven’t decided what the next series will be – I have at least 4 active ideas and several other possibilities.

Thank you for having me today. I hope everyone has wonderful day.

I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of RLF–and I’m usually welcoming guests in this space. Today, it’s my turn to share a new book. A Stolen Heart is my latest in the Antonello Brothers sci-fi series set in the Tarthian Empire.

A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen

When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves’ Guild he once led.

Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc’s immortal ex–the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes. For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he’ll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he’s coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child’s training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart…

Why did you write this book?

I’ve written three other books in this series, and it’s been fun to see different aspects of the characters unfolding. In At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, Senth is a young man falling in love for the first time. In For Women Only, he’s in danger and needs saving by his big brother. In Bro, he’s meeting that brother for the first time, at age eighteen. And in A Stolen Heart, he’s all of three years old and stealing the heart of his soon-to-be adoptive father. I mean look at that face. Who could say no to that face?

What is your favorite genre to read?

I bounce around among Suspense, Regency Romance, Sci-Fi, and contemporary gay romance. I love stories with happy ever afters or happy for nows. I also read a lot of non-fiction.

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

Roarke from JD Robb’s In Death series.

Who are your favorite writers?

JD Robb, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, JR Ward, Beverley Oakley, Alexa Aston, Heather Gladney, Mary Renault… I’ll stop, but there are plenty more. I read a lot.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m taking a short break from writing because I just finished a huge book. My brain and psyche need a reset. I anticipate starting the next book in about a month.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

On the agenda: I’ve finished Surrender Love and Forbid My Heart, both in the Surrender series. I’m hoping to write Surrender Trust next. Then comes Crystal Clear Truth (Antonello Brothers), and two books in the Bringer of Chaos series: Watch Your Six, and Ghost of a Chance. That’s the plan, anyway. But you know how life is. I didn’t plan to write A Stolen Heart, but it’s one of my favorite stories now that I’ve finished it. It’s the perfect book to read if you’ve never read anything of mine before.

Queen of the Castle by Lyndell Williams @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #NewRelease #interracialromanceLyndell Williams, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Queen of the Castle.

Queen of the Castle by Lyndell Williams

Genre Interracial Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

From award-winning, bestselling author, Lyndell Williams, a story of bridled desire unleashed.

Tarika is happy living single. She loves her home—her castle—and is not looking for some man to try and take over everything she has built. When best friend, Hafsah throws Aqil her way, Tarika makes it clear that she is not interested in the shy man, who barely speaks to her. When she needs his help after an accident, she allows Aqil and his daughter into her life, making it difficult to resist his sexy gray eyes and sultry smile. The more time she spends with him, the harder it is to keep her distance.

Aqil planned to stay focused on rebuilding his life with his daughter after a messy divorce until he saw Tarika. He tries to maintain a respectful amount of space, but her confidence and beauty draw him in. He knows he has everything Tarika needs and gets closer to her, bringing them into a passionate abandon that can break down the walls of her inhibitions but may also shatter their lives.

Why did you write this book?

I like to write romances that highlight the beautiful imperfection of loving someone. People bring their personalities and experiences into relationships, which can affect how they come together.

Readers met main characters Tarika and Aqil in the book, Open to Love and became excited about their story. They struggle with the feeling burgeoning between them. Tarika doesn’t want to give up the single life and her autonomy. Aqil is rebuilding his life after a bitter divorce, so he is not ready to go headfirst into new a relationship.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance has been my favorite genre since I was a teenager. I am excited to write romances with a more diverse spectrum of characters from an expanse of backgrounds and layered experiences.

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

I don’t have a favorite character.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am working my keyboard to get Building on Broken Dreams to readers. It is book three in the steamy, gripping Brothers in Law interracial romance series. The novel features Maryam and Adam. Maryam is surviving an abuse relationship when she meets Adam. She tries to start a new life with him, but the past threatens to destroy them both.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Readers can be on the lookout for Building on Broken Dreams, The Trouble with that Sister (Open to Love Book Three) and a book in A Timeless Love Series.

Read the new Seeing Clearly by Judythe Morgan @Judythe2 #RLFblog #NewRelease #romanticsuspenseJudythe Morgan, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Seeing Clearly.

Seeing Clearly by Judythe Morgan

Genre Romantic Suspense

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

Evie Parker and Dawson McKey uncover a web of lies, murder, and drug smuggling infiltrating her company. Her grandson is kidnapped as leverage. The widowed grandmother and ex-cop must fight a vicious cartel leader to save the toddler. When an attraction develops, and Dawson must convince Evie, twelve years his senior, that they have a future.

Evelyn Parker is a widow and trusting to a fault. She’s raising her grandson after her only child and his wife die in a suspicious car accident.

Dawson McKey is a divorced, overly cautious ex-cop, who now manages Evie’s shipping company. He trusts no one after his twin sons were killed by a cartel leader’s bomb.

There’s an undeniable attraction, but she’s twelve years his senior and convinced their age difference will haunt their relationship. Dawson’s vowed never to love again, after failing so miserably the first time, but working with Evie challenges his thinking.

Drugs show up in a company shipment at the same time mysterious emails threaten Evie’s grandson. Then the nanny she hired against Dawson’s advice disappears with her grandson and Dawson suspects cartel involvement.

Their search for the toddler tests their trust, even as it binds their hearts.

Why did you write this book?

Seeing Clearly came to life from a brainstorming discussion with a group of writing friends. Most romantic suspense books have young, sassy heroines. I wondered what if the heroine of an RS book was a grandmother who also happened to be guardian for her toddler grandson. And, what if she’s attracted to an ex-cop employee twelve years her junior?

From there Evie Parker and Dawson McKey sprang to life and the plot for Seeing Clearly evolved.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course. I want a taste of romance and a satisfying ending in whatever I read.

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

Jack Harrington from Marie Force’s Treading Water series.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working to finish book 3 in the Fitzpatrick family series. Josh is the third Fitzpatrick son. He’s an Army sniper on home leave. Mara is the administrator of Greenvine, a residential home for boys. When Josh volunteers to work at the home sparks fly.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Seeing Clearly, my new romantic suspense release is now available on Kindle or Nook. Get your copy today. When Love Trusts, Josh’s story, will be released early December.
