Read the #PNR First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay @SeelieKay #RLFblog #NewRelease #ParanormalRomance Someone’s killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead in this new paranormal romance by Seelie Kay, First, We Kill All the Lawyers.

Seelie, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about First, We Kill All the Lawyers.

First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay

Genre: Paranormal romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Someone is killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead.

Donovan Trait is a marked man. Flamboyant, stunningly handsome, and notoriously insatiable, his attitude and style belie his skills in the courtroom. No one survives a cross-examination at Donovan’s hands. His knowledge of the law and trial practice has accumulated over the years… and years, of experience. More than three hundred years. You see, when Donovan isn’t seducing judges and juries, he’s a creature of the night. And now that someone has decided that it’s time to kill all lawyers, his lust for attention has set him in the murderer’s sights. The problem is, vampires don’t die. Not easily, anyway. That’s good news for Donovan, not so much for his very human lady love, also a target of the serial killer. Will several unsuccessful attempts on his life expose Donovan’s true nature? Will the killer learn the secret that will guarantee a permanent death? Or will Donovan finally manage to put an end to the killer’s murderous spree and live happily ever after, with his lady love?

Why did you write this book?

I have wanted to write a vampire tale for some time, but had difficulty coming up with something consistent with current tropes. Finally, I decided it was time to break all the rules. After all, vampires have been around for centuries. Surely, they have evolved by now. And no doubt, they have many of the same societal problems that humans do. However, I also wanted the vampire to be a lawyer. The title came from my experience as a lawyer. I can’t tell you how many times someone would quote Dick the Butcher, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” (Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2.) They would laugh heartily, like they had just told a wonderful joke, but for me, it was great inspiration for a story. What if someone was killing lawyers?

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic suspense

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

Stone Barrington. The series by Stuart Woods.

What are you working on at the moment?

The first book in a new series, “Tillie.” Mathilda Spencer is an MI6 agent who specializes in getting royals out of sticky situations!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

“The Last Christmas” will be released December 2020. The first book in the Tillie series, “Lady Annabelle’s Perplexing Predicament” will be released in early 2021.

Reuniting with the man who broke her heart has never felt so right. Falling back into love, the theme of Harmony’s Embrace by Amber Daulton.

Amber, 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.

Harmony’s Embrace by Amber Daulton

Genre Romantic Suspense

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

Divorced dad Birley Haynes is too busy raising his children and running his family’s music academy to start a relationship. Then Harmony Holdich, his high school sweetheart, returns home to Willow Springs, Vermont for Christmas and falls into his bed. She brings light and fun back into his life, but he can’t brush aside the threatening incidents around his workplace.

Harmony hadn’t expected a complication like Birley, especially so soon after the death of her unfaithful husband. With her life a mess, she plans to move across the country and start over. All she can offer him is a fling, but her heart yearns for more.

When the threats rise, how will Birley keep his children safe and convince Harmony to give love another chance?

Why did you write this book?

Harmony’s Embrace is part of the multi-author Deerbourne Inn series, in which I’d already written one book, Lyrical Embrace. As I was writing Lyrical, I introduced a secondary character that really needed a good woman in his life.

Birley Haynes was so focused on work and taking care of his children that he’d forgotten how to relax and have fun. I wanted him to be happy and to find a mother figure for his adorable kids.

A few ideas bounced around in my head for about a year, but I couldn’t decide on Birley’s love interest.

Would she be a stranger coming to his small town of Willow Springs for whatever reason?

Would she be his ex-wife, who ran away from her responsibilities and now regrets her foolhardy decision?

Or would she be his high school sweetheart who never stopped loving him?

After I finally decided on the heroine—bachelorette number 3!—the plot fell together easily.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic Suspense and Paranormal are tied in first place. Give me bad boys, criminals, and secret agents, or vampires and shifters—I’m not picky.

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

I’m not sure. I really like The Hunger Games movies, and the books are on my ever-growing TBR list. So I have to go with the awesome Katness Everdeen.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently revising Ryan’s Temptation, a novella in my Arresting Onyx series. It follows sassy beautician Chanel Leroc and her sexy blond neighbor Ryan Naylor. After they witness the brutal death of a prostitute and the killer sets his sights on them, they must go into Witness Protection for their own safety. This fast-paced romantic suspense thriller is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Hopefully, Ryan’s Temptation will be out in Summer 2021.

The Billionaire's Christmas Wish by Laura Haley-McNeil @laurarmcneil #RLFblog #NewRelease #SweetRomanceAn injured football player and a woman with a mysterious past can’t fight the feeling in Laura Haley-McNeil’s new adult romance, The Billionaire’s Christmas Wish, but find themselves fighting more than feelings when they’re hunted by the past.

Laura, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Billionaire’s Christmas Wish.

The Billionaire’s Christmas Wish by Laura Haley-McNeiil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

His life just got complicated.

River Jackson’s riding high as the Denver Flyer’s starting quarterback, until an injury sidelines him. When Coach needs a volunteer to deliver donated football uniforms to the learning center in The Grid, River’s glad to go. What he hadn’t expected was the tiny woman with sparkling dark eyes and dreams bigger than the old schoolhouse she’s renting. He has no intention of falling for her, especially with his career on the ropes.

After a disaster turns Soledad Marcos’ life upside down, she’s glad the learning center has given her and her daughter a stable life. She buries the secrets of her dark past and looks forward to the future–a future that doesn’t include a dashing football player and his desire to help. Her students love River so she’s forced to bury the unease that has held her back for years.

As Soledad draws closer to River, she learns his tough exterior masks a compassionate and tender soul she’ll resist at all costs, but turning her back on love means a bigger sacrifice that could cost more than a broken heart.

Why did you write this book?

Billionaires and Christmas make the season bright, so I thought what better way than to enjoy the holiday than by combining the two.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Anything romance, but I also can’t resist a good psychological thriller.

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

I find I have new book boyfriend with nearly every book I read, but for heroines, Scarlett O’Hara and Elizabeth Bennet are firmly emblazoned in mind.

What are you working on at the moment?

As yet untitled, Book 4 of the Beaumont Brides Series takes place in the Outer Banks, one of my favorite places to visit. Tessa receives the shock of her life when the company she works for closes its New York branch. She escapes to a beach house on Manteo Banks, and into the arms of Dillon Lowe whose dark past threatens to expose secrets she had thought long buried.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Never Kiss Goodbye, Book 8 of the Crystal Creek Series releases January 26, 2021, and Beaumont Brides Box Set Books 1-3 releases May 25, 2021.

Cupcakes and Crumbs by Melissa McClone @melissamcclone #RLFblog #NewRelease #WomensFictionFive friends reunite after fifteen years apart in Melissa McClone’s new romantic women’s fiction release, Cupcakes and Crumbs. Will their friendship be enough to save the town’s beloved cupcake shop?

Melissa, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Cupcakes and Crumbs.

Cupcakes and Crumbs by Melissa McClone

Genre Romantic Women’s Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

After life takes five women on different paths, a death brings them home. But friendship might not be enough to keep them together.

When Bria Landon and her estranged father each inherit fifty percent of a small-town cupcake shop, her dad hires her worst enemy, and first love, to turn the place into a soulless franchise…or sell it.

To save her aunt’s legacy, Bria needs the help of people who love the bakery as much as she does—her old friends who worked there fifteen years ago. Except each woman is dealing with her own problem:

Juliet, who’s trying to prove she’s more than a trophy wife; Missy, a widow who fears losing the job she loves; Nell, who’s meddling mother won’t stop playing matchmaker; and Selena, a life coach who excels at fixing everyone else’s lives…but hasn’t a clue what’s missing in her own.

Each woman wants to believe their friendship can overcome anything. But as the Berry Lake Cupcake Posse reunite to save their beloved cupcake shop, they soon discover the undertaking will bring more trouble than they expected.

Why did you write this book?

A designer had put the cover for sale (it’s called a pre-made cover), and I fell in love with it. The only problem was I didn’t have a story for it. So my imagination got cranking, and I came up with an idea. Only it was for a series about five friends in a small town in Washington. So I messaged the cover and asked if she could make four more. She said yes, so I bought it. Then I filled in the idea into something more, focusing on friendship, family, and of course, romance!

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read across genres, but lately I’ve been reading romance and all it’s sub-genre for the HEAs, which I just need right now. I write sweet, but I read both sweet and steamy stories.

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

I really enjoyed Nick Andros from Stephen King’s The Stand. Even after all these years, his character has stuck with me.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m finishing up two short reads in my Billionaires of Silicon Forest Series. I also have another book started which will be a 50K contemporary romance. It isn’t titled yet, but it also takes place in a small town.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Tiaras & Teacups will be out in February. That’s the second book in my Berry Lake Cupcake Posse series. Kittens & Kisses will follow that in May or June.

Building on Broken Dreams by Lyndell Williams @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #NewRelease #romanticsuspenseThe past barges into the present to cause havoc in Lyndell Williams’ new romantic suspense. He loves and will never hurt her, but can he protect her from the man who wants to?

Lyndell, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Building on Broken Dreams.

Building on Broken Dreams by Lyndell Williams

Genre romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings):

If Maryam Avery stays in New York for one more day, she will die.

Trapped in an abusive relationship with the manipulative and cruel Raad, she can feel her life closing in around her. After he chases her from her home and family, Maryam flees to Philadelphia, searching desperately for a new beginning, something to help rebuild her spiritually and physically.

When she meets the mysterious Adam, things are thrown off-kilter. A successful businessperson with his own past that he is fleeing from, he is everything that Maryam wants. But can she trust another man?

Doubt gives way to desire. They find themselves in a whirlwind romance, and for once, it seems like everything will work out.

Until Raad turns up.

Why did you write this book?

I am so excited to release Building on Broken Dreams, book three in the Brothers in Law series. I wrote it for a few reasons. I am committed to writing steamy romances with characters reflective of American Muslim culture. So many Muslim authors shy away from sensual depictions of passion, despite a rich tradition of erotic literature.

I grew up reading romances with cherished female leads and revered male leads, very few of which I could deeply connect because I didn’t see myself. My books offer readers a chance to connect to a range of backgrounds to see and love themselves through my characters.

I also wanted to show how the past can remain an influence on our futures, despite our best efforts. Maryam picks up as many of the broken pieces of her life and rebuilds. Unfortunately, the influence of the relationship between her and Raad refuses to die.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love all kinds of romance. My favorites are second chance at love, suspense and friends to lovers.

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

One of my favorite literary characters is Mrs. Havisham in Great Expectations. Yeah, I know she is the antagonist, but her expert manipulation is one of the best portrayals of a manipulative sociopath, determined to make the entire world pay for her hurt.

She has the money and time to master to maneuver all the other characters unfortunate enough to cross her path. Poor Pip and Estelle.

What are you working on at the moment?

I have a few projects on my writing roster. I am clicking away to get Drowning in Shallow Waters, Brothers in Law book four to readers. The main characters Brandon and Hafsah must battle their insecurities to be together, all while someone works to destroy Brandon’s legal career and life.

I am also writing Fighting Fate, a post-apocalyptic, time travel, dystopian romance. Janelle is as systems manager for a time travel matrimonial service. Her boss is certain that she can find Janelle’s fated mate and catapults her through time. This story of love and politics will be part of the Timeless Love author series.

Readers are looking for the third book in my Open to Love series. Don’t worry, guys. I’m hard at work to bring Rahmah and Baaz’s story front and center.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I dedicated most of my writing time to book three in the Open to Love series. With the release of Building on Broken Dreams, everyone can get satisfy their Brothers in Law Jones with Adam and Maryam.

Read the new Suspense Arresting Jeremiah by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanticSuspenseJim’s downfall could cost him everything. Will he and Calista fight for a love they can’t deny? Arresting Jeremiah by Amber Daulton.

Amber, 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.

Arresting Jeremiah by Amber Daulton

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Injured Parole Officer Jeremiah “Jim” Borden never expected Calista Barlow, the sassy blonde waitress he’s craved for months, to ring his doorbell. She slips into his heart—and his bed—but he’s obsessed with a gangland investigation that threatens his career and maybe even his life.

Calista doesn’t trust easily, not with a daughter to protect and the stalker who keeps calling her. After her violent ex-boyfriend returns, she finds solace in Jim’s arms.

Jim may have to forego his need for answers to protect the ready-made family he adores, but how will he and Calista escape an unseen enemy that is always one step ahead of them?

Why did you write this book?

As I was writing Arresting Mason, book in the Arresting Onyx series, I realized the overall arc wasn’t coming to an end. Another book needed to be told. Jim was a major secondary character with some issues that I really wanted to address, and he needed a spunky woman in his life to kick him in the butt when needed. And trust me, he needs it a lot. Jim made so many foolish mistakes throughout the course of Arresting Jeremiah, but obsession and plain, old male hardheadedness is a hard thing to beat. Luckily for him, Calista was strong enough to handle him and all the dangers he dropped into her lap.

What is your favorite genre to read?

It’s a tie between romantic suspense and paranormal romance.

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

I’m not sure. I really like The Hunger Games movies, and the books are on my ever-growing TBR list. So I have to go with the awesome Katness Everdeen.

What are you working on at the moment?

My edits for Harmony’s Embrace. The story follows sax instructor Birley Haynes and his high school sweetheart, Harmony Holdich, as they reunite and fall back into love at Christmastime. It’s the sequel to Lyrical Embrace, both of which are in the multi-author Deerbourne Inn series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Harmony’s Embrace should be released this Christmas, and I hope to have the next installment in the Arresting Onyx series out in Summer 2021.
