Genre Contemporary Romance Novella

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

She came to the beach to find herself–and found him.

Forty-two-year-old divorcée Danielle Peters ends up alone on her family’s annual beach vacation. Maybe time to herself is exactly what she needs. That and gelato from her favorite ice cream shop. But when the owner’s intoxicating young nephew offers more than sweet treats, she’s tempted to indulge in a hot summer fling before returning home.

Thirty-one-year-old Matteo Verducci craved a fresh start to mend his broken heart, and he’s found almost perfection in Ocean View, where he scoops gelato by day and crafts furniture by night. But when a sexy older woman stops to sample his wares–Mamma mia! He only has two weeks to convince her their passion is more than a delicious surprise.

Tanner by Cheryl St John

Genre historical western

Book heat level PG:

He’s focused on the future…

The past is all she knows…

Together they’re forced to face today…

His months in Salisbury prison taught Union Captain Tanner Bell to detest a southern drawl, and Widow Cranford’s exaggerated Dixie twang has him gritting his teeth. His plans for a ranch are threatened when his orphaned newborn niece is delivered to him, and he desperately needs the landlady’s help.

Raylene Cranford survived a Georgia winter living on acorns and scrawny rabbits before traveling sixteen-hundred miles to carve out a life in Colorado. She lost everything–except her dignity and hope. Her feminine Southern graces are her armor, but maintaining appearances could cost her love.

Can a Southern belle and a Union soldier change deeply-ingrained misconceptions about themselves for the sake of a child?

Know the Hero from Tanner

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

Tanner is seldom bored, but when his animals are cared for, the baby is sleeping and he has time to himself, he enjoys reading.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He’s a meat and potatoes guy, but if he needed to eat on the road, he would probably buy sandwiches.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

He attempted to supply wood for the stove and fireplaces, but Raylene assured him she could take care of it herself. He fixed her front porch and she was offended that one of her tenants was working on her property.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

When his sister died and left him with a newborn, he didn’t know what to do, but he asked for help and figured it out. Feeling out of his element swiftly transitioned to adoring his infant niece and planning a future with her.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Bucket list of IrishMist (Ivy) Vaughn from Stay A Little Longer @RomanceBJones #RLFblog #Romantic SuspenseLet’s meet IrishMist (Ivy) Vaughn from Stay A Little Longer , a Romantic Suspense by Bernadette Jones. 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.

Stay A Little Longer by Bernadette Jones

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

IrishMist (Ivy) Vaughn studied the glass of liqueur that she’d been named after and contemplated her lack of a future. She’d been fighting to stay alive since the age of twelve. Trained with warrior skills to be whatever they asked of her. Trained to kill.

No permanent home. Living out of a duffel bag. Changing personas at the ring of a phone. I’m lost. I’m struggling to make sense of my life. I’m tired of fighting everyone else’s battles. All my friends have died. I want to quit. I want a little normal. A little happiness. A little…love.

Will they let me walk away?

Death didn’t frighten Gage Ewing. Living scared the hell out of him.

The innocent one died. I lived. Where is the justice in that? I’ve spent every day since trying to save others. No matter how many I heal in the hospital or on the streets, I can never be forgiven for that one death. I don’t deserve a family, a home or one moment of happiness.

Then she walks into the Wild Card and I’m filled with need, hunger. Hope. But my past is coming. Can I walk away before I’m the death of another innocent?

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 34

Gender: Badass Female

Birthplace: Backwoods Kentucky

Profession: Military and Black Ops Assassin

Ethnicity: No Clue

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m 5’7″, blue eyes, long blonde hair. I’m a fighter, so I’m pretty well muscled but sleek. My size is deceptive. I’m a lot stronger than some would think.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up poor and learned how to fight early. I was into martial arts and MMA boxing before I even left high school.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Gage Ewing won’t get out of my head or my life. I don’t want anyone, but he doesn’t let up. He makes me feel safe to be me. He makes me feel wanted. He doesn’t care what I’ve been.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

I have an older brother, Jack Daniels Vaughn. But I haven’t seen him since I was a kid. He disappeared.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

We didn’t have many toys. We played outside or went to the school playground.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

I love pasta and meatballs, a little on the spicy side. My second favorite is chicken, any style.

Tell us about your best friend.

The first time I met Owen, I decked him. He’s not afraid to spar with me. We’re both ex-military and ex-MMA fighters. We’ve both seen some bad stuff. He gets me.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

I traveled a lot with my career. Now, I want solitude and peace and maybe a family. I think I’ve found it in Spencer, Colorado.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

Kentucky. Growing up there was my personal hell on earth.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

I really wish I could see my brother again. I miss him and I never understood why he left.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

The person out to kill me. I don’t know who it is, but I will find them.

About Bernadette Jones

Bernadette Jones has been making up stories since she learned to read on her daddy’s lap. She has imagined casts of characters everywhere she’s called home: Texas, Oregon, South Dakota, Nebraska, Illinois, Massachusetts, and now New York.

Books and music filled her life as she, her dad and two brothers traveled the country. She would sit in the back seat of the car (her older brother always got to ride shotgun), listening to the current music on the radio, looking out the window and spinning a story based on a phrase or word she’d heard in the lyrics. As you can imagine, traveling the country the music changed from state to state, as did the stories. To this day she loves all genres of music, and books.

After a career in corporate writing, she’s finally decided to settled down and put pen to paper doing what she loves. Living the dream in her NYC apartment with her canine companion, she’s is bringing her stories and characters to life.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

There are some secondary characters that wanted to take over.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

Ivy stays in the shadows. I thought it was time people learned a little about her.

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?

She didn’t know how to love or be loved. Affection was hard for her. I also didn’t know she had a brother.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

Possibly a short story with Gage and Ivy. Also keep watching, Jack Daniels may have his own story. After all, Spencer is about family.

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?

Paranormal. I have some ideas…. If only there was more time in a day.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I’m vegetarian.

Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

I write about the healing of love, but I grew up on mysteries, thrillers, and action stories. You will find all of those in my books.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?

All my books are stand alone and can be read in any order. However, you meet both Gage and Ivy in my first book: Sleepin’ Alone.

My next book will be out in September. Watch for Lonely Eyes.

So you don’t miss anything be sure to stop by and visit my website. While you’re there check out the playlists I use for each book. More releases are coming soon, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter.

Bucket list of Pepper McKay from A Witch's Journey by Tena Stetler @TenaStetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #MysteryLet’s meet Pepper McKay from A Witch’s Journey, a paranormal romance/mystery by Tena Stetler. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A Witch’s Journey.

A Witch’s Journey by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Pepper McKay comes from a long line of powerful witches. Unfortunately, magic brings her nothing but trouble. She learned the love of wildlife rescue and rehab from her Aunt Ashling. After graduating from college, Pepper works for Salem Wildlife Sanctuary and lives from paycheck to paycheck until she inherits the McKay property in Lobster Cove. With the family land and resources, she dares to dream of starting her own wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center.

Lathen Quartz, a former Navy SEAL turned handyman maintains the enchanted McKay property for the McKay estate. But someone is trying to steal the McKay magic. Lathen offers to help Pepper achieve her life-long dream of building a wildlife center. During the long hours spent together on the project, their mutual attraction can’t be denied. But each harbors a deep, dark secret. Will they overcome their demons and give love a chance?

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: mid thirties

Gender: Female

Birthplace: East Coast

Profession: Wildlife rehabilitator

Ethnicity: Irish

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

My long red hair, wavy down to my waist gets tangled so badly sometimes, I consider cutting it real short. I always reconsider, tame my tresses in a braid, and feel better.

Creamy complexion is the curse of the Irish. I sunburn easily and my face freckles if I don’t use strong sunscreen.

Large emerald green eyes usually sparking with mischief have always been my best feature. Full kissable lips according to Lathen competes with my eyes. He also says I have way too much energy for one person, which accounts for my willowy build, being tall helps. Contrary to popular belief, my energy does run out. LOL My mom always thought my deep dimples and tinkling laugh set me apart from most.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I’m the only child of two college professors. Both powerful witches. I spent my summers with my Aunt Ashlin in Lobster Cove, Maine. She taught me all there was to know about wildlife rescue. I worked in Salem, Massachusetts for ten years with Gwen who ran the place, until the magic storm on the anniversary of the Salem Witch Trials. But that’s a tale for another time. When my Aunt passed on, she left me the McKay property in Lobster Cove. It was enchanted, you know. Lathen Quartz was the maintenance man for the property. He’s a former Navy SEAL. He helped me bring my dream of building a wildlife rescue and rehab to fruition.

Who is the significant other in your life? Lathen Quartz. He’s my best friend, soul mate and partner in Lobster Cove Wildlife Rescue and Rehab Center. I have to say he is swoon worthy with is muscular build, tousled surfer blond hair, bright aquamarine blue eyes and deeply tanned skin. He also has a great sense of humor.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order? Only child.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

Didn’t play with many toys. I was always bringing home injuried creatures and nursing them back to health. Other than that, I come from a long line of powerful witches. I spent a lot of my time honing those skills. When you have a young child able to conjure witch fire, you require constant supervision.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Pizza. Extra sauce, extra cheese and beef all around on a crispy crust.

Bucket list of Pepper McKay from A Witch's Journey by Tena Stetler @TenaStetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #MysteryTell us about your best friend.

Gwen, she’s the owner of Salem Sanctuary. In Salem, MASS of course. We spend many a night with ailing creatures nursing them back to health of the ten years I spent at the Sanctuary. We are still very close, like family.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Australia – It is the home of so many unusual creatures. Some of these animals can only be found in Australia. I’d love to visit Australia Zoo.

Hawaii – I’d love to stay in a cottage on the beach. Witness the sunrise, surf the warm waters then watch the sun set. Study the sea creatures around the islands. You know I have a degree in marine biology.

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

I can’t really think of any place I’ve been, and there haven’t been a lot, that I wouldn’t return.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

Jacques Cousteau – Discuss his underwater investigations, discoveries and adventures.

Steve Irwin – I’d love to discuss wildlife conservation and his experiences. Along with that, I’d love to meet his family Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin chat about wildlife conservation, rescue and rehab.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

Politicians. They undermine the very fabric of all that is good and fair about this country. Don’t get me wrong, American is still the best country in the world, but we’ve taken a few wrong turns in recent years.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

I’d like to travel back to when my ancestors Aidan Duncan McKay and his wife Dusty McKay lived around 1693. I’ve love to visit with them, learn how the time period shaped them and their magic. There are a lot of misinformation swirling around about them, I’d like to clear up. They original built the cabin on the McKay property in Lobster Cover and wove love and magic throughout the land, as well as, the cabin. Of course through the years the cabin has been remodeled and built onto, but the original structure remains.

Know the Hero from Tiger's Last Chance by Christina Lynn Lambert@chris4lamb #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceChristina Lynn Lambert, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about Tiger’s Last Chance.

Tiger’s Last Chance by Christina Lynn Lambert

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

While working a case, Sean Whitman is tortured for information, drugged, and bitten against his will by a shape shifter. The fallout leaves him jobless, friendless, and dumped by his girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, he leaves town and opens a private investigation business. Learning to live life sober isn’t easy, but he makes it to the two year mark.

When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him, accusing him of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, Sean can’t help but like the sound of her voice, despite her ridiculous accusations. He’s shocked when she calls him back with an apology then asks for his help as a consultant on a case. On the phone, her sweet, slightly Southern voice captivates him. In person, she’s unlike any other woman he’s encountered, and nearly impossible to resist. But could the sexy detective ever want a man like him?

After Nikki’s last dating disaster, the mountain lion shifter has sworn off men. Then she meets Sean, and with every second she spends around the tall, dark-eyed man, her resolve crumbles. But for some reason, despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sean seems determined to push her away.

An investigation into missing refugees leaves Nikki with more questions than answers. Her refusal to let the matter drop leads her to the discovery of a radical political group’s horrifying plot for dominance. Traitors are embedded within the very organizations meant to keep shifters safe. As the list of people she can trust dwindles, Nikki calls on Sean to help her unravel a web of deceit.

As Nikki and Sean fight for survival, his fear of losing her could become a reality. Will he get one last chance to show her he loves her?

Know the Hero from Tiger’s Last Chance

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

If he’s tired but not tired enough to sleep, he will sit in bed and read a book. He loves horror, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy. He might even write a poem or two. He doesn’t usually share his work with anyone but he enjoys writing. If he’s got a lot of restless energy, he’ll either listen to one of his favorite playlists while he hits the treadmill or his weight bench.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

His snack choice is meatball subs or hamburgers and fries. He’s not a fantastic cook but luckily he lives near plenty of great restaurants and sandwich shops.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Sean doesn’t like to dress up. He prefers t shirts, jeans, and running shoes.

Does he know how to fix things?

He can fix basic stuff around the house, for anything more complicated, duct tape will be involved.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

A couple years ago, two guys broke into his house and started interrogating him about a case. When his girlfriend (now ex-girlfriend) came to the door, he tried to get her to leave quietly and quickly so he could keep her safe. So many things went wrong. The memory will always haunt him.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He doesn’t know a whole lot about kids, hasn’t been around them much, but he treats them with decency and never ever acts condescendingly towards kids. He figures they deserve the same basic rights as everyone else so he listens when they speak rather than dismissing them or trying to shut them up.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s not really a morning person. Extra strong coffee helps.

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

He doesn’t share much about himself, definitely not anything about being a shapeshifter. Lots of regular humans know about the existence of some of the stranger creatures in life, but many don’t, so he’s always careful about what he says.

Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?

When Sean’s private investigation business started gaining a fair amount of clients, he hired an assistant. Training Darnell forced Sean to learn to let go of the need to have control over every detail.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

He doesn’t have any tattoos. He hates needles. He does have a few scars but Nikki thinks he’s hot just the way he is.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He has to travel for different investigations so he drives a truck that has plenty of space for surveillance equipment and luggage.

Recycle or toss?

He always recycles. He loves spending time outside and doesn’t want to trash the environment.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. My stories include a fair amount of sarcasm, suspense, steam, and violence. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.

Now, years later, she discovers the betrayal wasn’t Paul’s, when her mother confesses to a sin that changed their lives forever. How can Sara reveal to Paul’s parents that they have a granddaughter they’ve missed the chance to know? Even worse, how will she find the words to tell her daughter that she’s lived her life in the shadow of a lie?

Picking her way through the minefields of secrets, distrust, and betrayal, Sara finds that putting her life together again while crossing burning bridges will be the hardest thing she’s ever done.

Know the Hero from Burning Bridges

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Paul is an avid reader, so he always has something nearby to read. He like thrillers. Since he’s spent most of his adult life as a farmer, he keeps up with new techniques with farming magazines. He also likes to fish or just grab an apple and find a quiet place to relax.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Bing candy bars—a concoction of a soft cherry center surrounded by chocolate. They’re only available in stores in the Midwest.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Casual all the way. He’s used to jeans. He doesn’t wear tee shirts often, though. Casual, collared shirts are what he likes. When he dresses up, like for church or a special occasion, suits will do. But he gets out of them as soon as possible. He does splurge for some clothing. He has a fabulous sheepskin coat for those cold Iowa winters.

Does he know how to fix things?

He can fix most anything. Living far out of town, he and his brother and nephew rely on their skills to fix whatever breaks. Give Paul and engine—any kind of engine—and he’ll make it sing.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

In Vietnam, he tried to check a native family’s papers and return to his ship, but he nearly ended up in a bloodbath. It made his question why he and his fellow sailors were in Vietnam to begin with. The episode scared him. He relayed this in a letter to his love, Sara.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

Paul likes children but he doesn’t seek them out. When he’s around them he will generally stand back and let others take charge.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s used to getting up before daylight and getting right into hard labor, so he pretty much is fine with it. I wouldn’t say he jumps out of bed and starts whistling, but he knows how to get half a day’s work done by the time others are just rising.

Can he use chopsticks?

If he wanted to, but why??

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Oh yes. Strong and black.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Weather, a favorite parts store app, Amazon Kindle

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean shaven

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Nope. He and a group of his shipmates decided to get tattoos once when they were on R&R in China Beach, but he said that he sobered up before it was his turn.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Private transportation. In Iowa he had a truck and a Jeep. He took the truck with him to South Carolina. He’s always lived in places where public transportation wasn’t feasible.

Recycle or toss?

He recycles, though he’s not rabid about it.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

A few years ago, Dee S. Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex. That’s how Dee spends her days. Her nights? Well, she’s lucky that her dream man, childhood sweetheart, and long-time hubby are all the same guy, and nights are their secret.
After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories. All three of her personas are found on the Nomad Authors website. Also, once a month, look for Dee’s Charity Sunday blog posts, where your comment can support a selected charity.
