Welcome Iris Blobel author of Fresh Beginnings, a new Contemporary Romance.

Why did you write this book?
I love this book. We went to the USA a few years back, travelling in a motorhome through 5 different states, having the time of our lives. After returning home, looking through hundreds of photos, I came up with the idea to turn our itinerary into a story. Fresh Beginnings was born. I hope the readers will enjoy this little journey and hopefully my love for the places we went to, is shining through.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read most genres as long it’s an interesting read – from crime, mystery, to romance, and I’ve just downloaded a historical romance. Something new for me.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jack Reacher – hands down.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve started a trilogy in “Beauty Bay”, another coastal setting. I love the beach and when we travelled along the NSW coast last year I loved the area so much, I needed to have it in one of my books – Molly and Noah, a pilot from Alaska J
What books will we see from you in coming months?
“Echoes of the Past” will be re-released later this year or early next year. But there’ll also be a book set partly in New Zealand – another travel inspired story. I’m really looking forward to releasing this book. The main character has a Maori background

The Alibi by Marilyn Baron @MarilynBaron #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome Marilyn Baron author of The Alibi, a new Romantic Suspense.

Why did you write this book?
The Alibi was inspired by my year in the Florida prison system, doing PR, not time.

What is your favorite genre to read?
I love any book about World War II, especially thrillers.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Gabriel Allon, an art restorer and an Israeli spy, a fictional character created by Daniel Silva.

What are you working on at the moment?
I just finished a women’s fiction with elements of historical romance and suspense called The Siege: A Novel, set in current day Florence, Italy, and New York City and the Greek island of Crete during WW II. It is inspired by a true story.

What would you do if you were in the wrong place at the wrong time—forced into the honeymoon suite with a man who wasn’t your husband while your hotel was under attack by terrorists? That’s how The Siege: A Novel, opens. When artist Theia Constas finds some vintage WW II photographs and love letters in a shoebox in her grandmother’s closet upon her death, she goes on a journey of self-discovery, where she finds love and realizes her passion through a link to her grandparents’ hidden past.

What books will we see from you in coming months?
In October, I will be announcing my involvement in a special project with a great group of authors that I’m really excited about. I can’t wait to tell you about it, so stay tuned for more details

In The Alibi, Merritt Saxe, newly hired public relations specialist with the Florida prison system, answers an urgent plea from their division’s director, Willard Ware Baintree. Following his orders, she finds him in the apartment of his mistress, his bloody T-shirt and the mistress’s dead body convincing her the criminal justice superstar is himself a criminal. The director claims he didn’t kill the woman and coerces Merritt into being his alibi. Meanwhile, as the director pulls her farther into his web of lies, Merritt breaks with her longstanding boyfriend and begins a steamy relationship with hunky attorney Israel Goodspeed, whose brother works for the director. Yet how can she trust Israel with her secret or her heart when she suspects the director has been orchestrating their relationship to keep her in line? Speaking out about the cover-up could cost her more than time in jail…it could cost her life.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Isabella Miley was trapped. Her brother was dead – murdered on a slave traders ship. And now the man she feared most, Samuel Buchanan, had papers placing her in servitude to him. She needed to get the signet ring and ruby necklace she’d hidden away if she were to be able to prove who she was. When Samuel threatened to make her his wife and offer her out as payment to the debt collectors that were calling, she ran for her life and straight into the arms of Ruben Stoneheart. Before she could ask for his help she was dragged back to Samuel and into bondage.
Ruben wanted a peaceful life, far away from the blackbirding slave trade he’d once been involved in. He’d watched too many people die and all for a man’s own greed and want of a ruby necklace.
This wasn’t the life he wanted. He wanted peace. A wife. Family.
When the Irish beauty Isabella ran into his arms down on the docks, she stirred feelings in him unlike anything else. Never could he have imagined her to be as passionate as she was mysterious – or to be the wife of his once business partner Samuel Buchanan.
Curious how such a wondrous woman could end up entangled with a brute like Samuel, Ruben went delving into her past, eager to know more about this woman he was quickly losing his heart to. What he found was a slave contract with her name on it.
Hurt that she would hide such a thing from him, he confronts her with an ultimatum – Samuel or him.
Isabella’s fear demands that she stay with Samuel until she could gain her freedom, but her heart is willing to risk it all on Ruben – a man rumoured to have a heart of stone.

High Country Dilemma by Dena N Netherton @denanetherton1 #RLFblog #contemporary #romanceDena Netherton, author of High Country Dilemma, answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and studied to become a professional singer and musician. After performing and teaching for many years, and after I had raised my three children, I retired from the music world and turned my focus to crafting both romance and suspense tales. My years onstage have provided me with wonderful memories to draw upon when I create new stories and new characters. My husband and I are active in our church as worship leaders and teachers. We recently moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
I love seafood. Especially scallops. Oysters, too. There’s a wonderful seafood restaurant I like to go to that sits on a cliff, overlooking the San Juan Islands. They have their own oyster beds. You oyster lovers know what I’m talking about when I say, “There’s nothing like fresh oysters on the half shell.”
Describe the perfect vacation.
My perfect vacation is only loosely planned. It’s a road trip. We have a few major destinations, but, other than that, we can stop along the way and spend as much time as we want exploring little towns, finding the most memorable road signs, discovering a new ‘favorite’ restaurant, and snapping interesting photos. I also keep a road-trip journal where I record memories of our conversations, how long it took to get from here to there, and things I learned today. Some of my best ideas for stories come to me when I’m zoning out in the passenger seat on I-90.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
The best toy I ever received was—believe it or not—a big box of card stock paper from my uncle who worked at the Post Office. My sister and I spent hours and hours drawing people and animals on the cards, then bending them in half so they’d stand upright. We created a whole ranch, complete with cowboys, dogs, cats, chicken, cows, and fences. I’m so glad I was a kid before computers and cell phones and iPods came along!
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
For High Country Dilemma, I drove to the area and checked out the real-life mountain town that sits where my fictionalized Pine Ridge is located. I took tons of photos, visited museums and stores, collected and studied local maps, and read historical books about the area. I also purchased quite a few books about the animal and plant life in the Colorado Rockies since that’s such a big part of the back drop for this mountain romance. I recorded my observations about the town and the area in a journal. At the time, I was living in Colorado, in another small town about an hour north, so local research wasn’t a problem. I also did internet research on historic opera houses in the mountains so my pine Ridge Opera House would be authentic. I know a couple of firefighters, so I picked their brains, as well as reading library books on the subject of firefighting. You’ll probably think I’m crazy, but I think research is really fun.
Please tell us about your latest book.
High Country Dilemma is a G-rated, (Christian) contemporary romance that takes place
in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I started writing it while I was still living in Colorado, but finished it after we moved to Washington. After I attended a couple of Melodramas, performed in small towns in the Rockies, I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to create a character (Fallon) who comes up to the mountains for the summer to direct Pine Ridge’s annual Melodrama and winds up having to play the main character herself? Of course, her life situation had to be just as complicated and fraught with emotion as Miss May’s, the innocent maiden Fallon plays. And the hunky hero (Lucas) who plays her leading man just had to be her off-stage rescuer, as well.
Fallon Hart has landed her dream job—directing the annual Melodrama, Miss May’s Dilemma. But when Fallon arrives in Pine Ridge, Colorado, she finds her new apartment in flames. To make matters worse, her manager wants her to sing an impossible solo. Her family wants her to give up the theater and join the family jewelry business. And her selfish, controlling ex-finance wants her back. The biggest dilemma of all, though, is trying to make everyone happy.
Handsome firefighter, Lucas O’Farrell, is searching for his soul-mate, a lady who’ll share his love of the mountains, small-town living, and kids. He knows exactly what he doesn’t want: a sophisticated city girl like Fallon. But when they are cast as sweethearts in the Melodrama, the attraction is hard to deny. Before he realizes it, he’s falling for her—hard— and it’s possible she’s starting to love him, too. But is love worth the risk if she’s playing to return to Denver at the end of the season?

Picture of Close to the Skin by Zara West @zarawestauthor #RLFblog #RomanticsuspenseZara West author of Close to the Skin answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.

Zara West loves all things dark, scary, and heart-stopping as long as they lead to true love. Born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Zara spends winters in New York where the streets hum with life, summers in the Maritimes where the sea can be cruel, and the rest of the year anywhere inspiration for tales of suspense, mystery, and romance are plentiful.

Swept off her feet by her own Indiana Jones, Zara has followed sheep and goats up and down mountainsides in Greece, Crete, and Italy, been stranded on the banks of the Rhine with no money and one chocolate bar, and while she has never been kidnapped, she has been abandoned on an island in the middle of t wilderness for longer than she wants to remember.
A member of RWA, Zara has won numerous awards for her short stories and novels. Close to the Skin was a first winner in the 2016 Pages from the Heart for romantic suspense.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
The answer has to be home-made pizza. I have been making pizza every Friday since my children were toddlers. It got to be that all their friends and all our friends started showing up unexpectedly on Friday nights to have “Mom’s” pizza. I stiil make pizza once a week (Wednesdays now) and the kids and their buddies still come to dive in. My pizza secret – use half-cheddar cheese.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Right now it has to be Jamie Fraser from Outlander. I loved him when I read Gabaldon’s series. But I just finished binge watching the last two seasons of Outlancer on Netflix so he’s come to life for me. The actor Sam Heughan was perfect for the part. My second favorite hottie is Nathaniel Boomer in Into the Wilderness. I never cared much for the heroine. But she sure lucked out in the amazing lover department.
Describe the perfect vacation.
My perfect vacation is to have no must dos and no job to worry about and just to be able to sit and write all day. I am pretty much having that now here at my cottage in the Martimes with a view of the sea. Lucky me.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My father made me a wooden gun that used a rubberband to shoot pieces of cardboard. Not a very girly toy, but I loved pretending to be the hero and sneaking up on imaginary villains and letting fly. I guess romantic suspense was in my blood even then.
What are your hobbies?
Reading is my main hobby. When I am not working or writing, I read. I read everything. I read biographies and histories, mysteries and thrillers, and scifi and fantasy, historical fiction and paranormal, and of course lots and lots of romance.
After I read, I review what I read on a regular basis. You can find my reviews here, http://www.zarawestsuspense.com/my-books/zara-recommends/ and on Goodreads, https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/50909234
My other hobbies include cooking, gardening, quilting, and spinning and weaving. I did ethnography in Greece living with and studying shepherding and learned how to work with wool and flax there. I have a Greek loom and have sold my weavings professionally at venues such as Bloomingdales, Putamayo, and the Museum of American Folkart.

Welcome Adam Mann author of Don’t Take Your Shoes Off, a new titillating romance
Why did you write this book?
I’ve always been fascinated and admired ladies who wear high heels, especially if they have nice legs.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I like reading thrillers, war, adventure stories.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Mr. Micawber from Charles Dickens.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am preparing a new marketing program for the 30 or so books I have written.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I often find myself writing several novels at a time, as my mood takes me, but my next to be published will feature a bank, a beautiful lady detective, and a smash and grab villain.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
There is no doubt about it; ladies who wear high heels look great. I don’t know the sales figures but I’m sure that high heeled shoes must be one of the market leaders. But that’s not my point – my impression here is to try to offer three stories about ladies who have worn high heels with spectacular results:
Red High Heels is set in London, probably in the 1990’s. The man who appreciates the high heels is a stem-cell research scientist, who tries to help Roxanne put on her Red High Heels. Roger does a better job when she takes them off.
Helga’s Red Thigh Boots is set in Rotterdam, when climate change is beginning to emerge as a serious problem. The lady, Hufflepuff, wears high heels as she is tiny, but when Fred takes her to Canada in the winter she needs warmer shoes, so long red leather thigh boots is her solution.
Black High Heels starts off in the early 2000’s, when international aid is beginning to open up the economy in emerging economies like Vietnam, which brings an enjoyable clash of cultures between a Brit adviser and a lady graduate who takes off her black high heels.

A Furrow So Deep by Penelope Powell @penpowell89 #RLFblog #RomanceWelcome Penelope Powell author of A Furrow So Deep, a new sweet romance.

Why did you write this book?

Our greatest challenges are usually relational. A Furrow So Deep depicts the fracture of a first love by secrecy and fear, but it also points toward other less obvious threats like selfishness and unforgiveness, which can derail any relationship just as effectively.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I really enjoy cozy mysteries. Probably because they tend to have a little bit of everything each story.

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

That’s actually a hard question because there are several authors whose new releases I generally look for. Lexi Charmichael is a tech-savvy, socially challenged woman who stumbles through love and a diabolical plot, all at the same time.

What are you working on at the moment?

Another book in this particular series. Laney’s story for those who’ve read A Powerful Voice. I have other stand alone novels in the works as well.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Hopefully the third book of the Glen Oak Series, but we shall see.

Please tell us about your latest book.

After thirteen long years, Karen Braden returns home to inherit her grandmother’s bed and breakfast, hoping it will provide the kind of future she wants for herself and her daughter. There’s only one problem—she’ll have to face the past and the one man she’s never stopped loving: Dean Anderson.

In the years following Karen’s hasty and unexplained departure, Dean built a portfolio of auto dealerships, yet he remains unfulfilled. When he sees Karen again, his hurt resurfaces, clashing with the love he’s always had for her. Determined to find out why she left him all those years ago, Dean discovers there’s more at stake than just getting answers.

As the truth begins to unravel, Dean and Karen must decide if they can forgive past transgressions and trust God to help them forge a future, better than either could ever anticipate.
