Stressing Gillian from Dark Energy by Addison Brae @AddisonBrae1 #RLFblog #romanticsuspenseLet’s meet Gillian from Dark Energy, a romantic suspense, by Addison Brae. 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 latest book.

Dark Energy by Addison Brae

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Cybercrime doesn’t talk. It creeps in and destroys lives right under Gillian’s nose when a cryptojacking scheme lands her boss, Pinkie, in jail. Gillian had just started over with a new career, boyfriend, and confidence after escaping a vicious murder investigation that shattered her ability to trust. Then Pinkie’s arrest leaves her struggling to run his two bars while also unraveling the conspiracy.

Gillian will not let her mentor and friend go down for something he didn’t do. Neither will Jon, the most talented musician on the bar’s stage and the perfect boyfriend…until his good fortune sends her reeling. Gillian forces herself to trust the cops, people who hurt her, and known criminals. Will it be enough to free Pinkie and save her life?

Stressing Gillian

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

Please tell me about your heroine.

Age: 21

Gender: female

Birthplace: Sugar Creek, Missouri

Profession: bar manager and CPA

Ethnicity: Greek American

What does your heroine look like?

Gillian doesn’t have much time to spend on her looks, so she depends on a few well-selected clothes and the rest is what she was born with. She has an olive complexion with auburn hair, just below the shoulder, and soft curls. She’s a little on the short side at about 5’4″. She runs often since she moved to Dallas, so she’s pretty toned. Gillian appreciates good food but forgets to eat when she’s busy, and she’s lost a few pounds from stress dieting that she desperately tries to end soon.

Who is the significant other in his life?

After escaping an abusive college relationship and making a few romantic mistakes since moving to Dallas, Gillian meets Jon. They’re thrown together in extremely stressful situations. He listens, is there for her, and has her back when things get really bad, all things she’s not used to from men in her life. Even better, he’s a good cook, makes his own money, and writes and performs with his band a song for Gillian called Dark Energy.

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a party. Considering her story, describe the party.

Since Gillian manages a bar, she prefers a chill house party when she’s not working–maybe grilling by the pool. She enjoys talking to and getting to know people over a glass of wine, and has little patience for overused bar lines and BS.

How much drink is her usual?

Gillian knows her limits, so she sticks to no more than a couple of drinks. She is well aware she gets into trouble when she drinks too much–especially tequila shots.

Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend that others latch onto?

Gillian is used to her independence. She adores every moment with Jon, but they’re not a Velcro couple.

Is the heroine the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

Gillian learns the bar business from men who are far stronger and tougher than she is. Have you ever seen a tiny dog that has the confidence to make noise and take control like a large one? This is Gillian, and she’s good at it.

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was blameless in a situation?

The cops yank her friend, mentor, and boss out of the bar on opening weekend. She tries to stop them, but they’re FBI and don’t listen. She keeps her cool better than most and contacts the one cop friend she can trust.

How does the heroine react to hearing a scream?

Gillian would call for help and investigate before jumping in to help.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?

If a patron starts a fight or gets rowdy in the bar, Gillian jumps in the middle to stop it. Where she’s lacking in size, she makes up in skill and badassery.

This heroine attempts to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does she do?

Since moving to Dallas, Gillian has been in over her head so many times she’s used to it. She completed training and earned her license to carry a handgun, and she often does. When she’s overpowered, she’s clever enough to think her way out of it. If lethal force is her last option, she’s not afraid to act. “Am I an accountant, bar manager, or crime fighter?” ~Gillian.

The heroine runs into the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does she do?

When a customer comes into her bar, no matter what may have occurred before, Gillian has to be professional. This happens with someone who hurt her in the past. He tells her he went through rehab and stopped drinking for good. She gives him a chance and he repays her by saving her life in a pretty exciting scene in Dark Energy.

The heroine is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself in order to get through the situation?

“No one will ever control me again!” are the words that keep Gillian fighting. Considering what she faces, Gillian’s fed up with begin controlled and adds rule twelve to her list of rules of her new life–no one can mess with me.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

Pinkie, Gillian’s boss, mentor, and friend’s best advice that she often recalls in her frustrating bar manager moments is, “There’s one thing you’ll learn after being in the service industry for a while, you’ll never please everyone.”

What one thing would you like readers to know about your heroine?

Gillian always keeps her word, no matter what. “Damn promises. Why do I make promises that always get in the way of my happiness?” ~Gillian Rule eighteen of her new life is–Never make a promise I can’t keep.

Know the Hero from Timeless Beginnings by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #TimeTravelRomanceAmber Daulton, 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 the book.

Timeless Beginnings by Amber Daulton

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Leonora Harris fled her newly wedded husband’s home in Georgian England, 1725, and took shelter in a cave during a rainstorm. She woke up in a cold, barren land and a handsome stranger with a mechanical carriage offered her shelter.

Undercover American operative Rodger Ramsey never expected to find a runaway bride in the magnificent Salar de Uyuni. Assigned to Bolivia to investigate Communist activities, he just wrapped up his two-year mission in 1963 and followed his heart to the salt flats one last time.

Sparks flew and attraction sizzled. The lost, stubborn woman kicked his protective instincts into overdrive. Rodger took her home with him, determined to help her before he returned to the States, and Leonora flourished under his guidance. Their hearts intertwined. He wanted her, needed her, but could he truly love a woman who believed she jumped two hundred years in time?

Will they find a way to stay together, despite the obstacles between them, or will Leonora survive in this strange new world alone?

Know the Hero from Timeless Beginnings

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

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

Since Rodger is a CIA agent on assignment in Bolivia in 1963, he doesn’t have a lot of off-time. When he gets bored, he checks on his contacts in the criminal underworld or spies on the Communist party that’s taking charge of the government.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Fruit. Chocolate or junk food is a rarity where’s he’s stationed, so he’s become accustomed to snacking on apples.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Slacks and sweaters.

Does he know how to fix things?

Rodger earned a degree in Engineering before he joined the feds, so he’s very capable with his hands. Which is great for his lady love, Leonora. *wink wink*

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

That’s classified. Sorry. Unless you have clearance? No? Next question.

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

He’s comfortable around them. He has three younger siblings, so he grew up in a large family.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Wide awake, alert. He’s trained his body to wake at a certain time.

Can he use chopsticks?

No way. He doesn’t have an opportunity to eat Oriental food anyway.

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

Nope. No coffee. He misses that luxury.

Android or iPhone? What apps would he have on his phone?

“Apps? Robots? What is Kayelle talking about?”

“Shh.” Yeah, sorry. Rodger was responding to that one. I’m shushing him.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven, most of the time.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. He’s too much of a square to take a walk on the wide side. Thank God that doesn’t apply to the bedroom, though, or Leonora wouldn’t be too happy.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Four-by-four jeep. Without it, he never would’ve found Leonora wandering around the flats.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Even though saving the environment wasn’t a widely spread notion back in the ’60s, he doesn’t believe in wasting things.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Genre Adventure Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

If Leigh Ronaldson is one thing, it’s predictable. What’s wrong with having a routine? Apparently, it makes her boring or so her ex-boyfriend claimed as he dumped her. And her best friend agrees.

She decides to prove them wrong and books an extreme adventure in Ecuador. The hiking, kayaking, and camping she signed up for. She didn’t plan on the hot guide who by just looking at her made her squirm with desire and definitely not the drug cartel who wants them dead.

Nick Greco golden rule is never to touch a client. NEVER. But rules can’t be broken. Regardless of how hard he is.

Once the local drug cartel starts hunting them, he knows it will take all his skill to get out of the Amazon jungle alive. And if your life is hanging in the balance even golden rules can be broken…

Know the Heroine from Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock @Kris_Bock @dougeboch #RLFblog #YAlitDouglas J Eboch and Kris Bock, 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 heroine, but first, tell us about Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock

Genre Romantic Comedy

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

Introducing the new young adult romantic comedy series featuring “Felony Melanie” seven years before the events of the movie Sweet Home Alabama.

Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

When Melanie qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant Southern Regional in the big city of Mobile, the first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek. But can her homemade dresses compete against the expensive gowns, and can a “trailer trash” girl survive when a haughty debutante will do anything to destroy the competition.

Meanwhile, Jake thinks beauty pageants are silly, but he’ll be there to support Melanie – as long as he can avoid getting kicked out by hotel security. Then Jake and his friends start to suspect someone is sabotaging the whole pageant. They try to follow the clues, but it isn’t easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they’re more than what people see on the surface?

Suitable for ages 12 and up.

Know the Heroine from Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium

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

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

Sneak out of the trailer home, find Jake and maybe some of the rest of the gang, and get into trouble.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Barbecue, yum!

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

When she’s not gussied up for the beauty pageant stage, she prefers to wear clothes that can stand up to running through the woods to escape the sheriff, and maybe a dive into the pond.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s better known for breaking things.

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

“Felony Melanie” earned her nickname because everything she tries to do seems to go badly. There was the episode of blowing up the bank. Totally in accident. We don’t talk about that (much).

Sign up for our newsletter and get Felony Melanie Destroys the Moonshiner’s Cabin. These first two chapters from the novel Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium stand alone as a short story. You can probably guess from the title that this is not one of Melanie’s more successful evenings.

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

In Pigeon Creek, everyone knows everyone.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

So not a morning person.

Can she use chopsticks?

She’s seen chopsticks.

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

Coffee with lots of sugar when she was out late getting into trouble, and now she needs to wake up and pretend to be a respectable young lady on the beauty pageant stage.

What apps would she have on her phone?

It’s 1993 in rural Alabama. What are apps?

Read the series: The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife by Liese Sherwood-Fabre @lsfabre #RLFblog #SherlockHolmes #cozymysteryLiese Sherwood-Fabre, 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 series.

The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife in the Early Case Files of Sherlock Holmes

Genre: Mystery

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

Before Sherlock Holmes became the world’s greatest consulting detective, scandal rocked the Holmes family.

Arthur Conan Doyle provided few details on Holmes’ boyhood. His ancestors were country squires, his grandmother was the sister of the French artist Vernet, and he had a brother named Mycroft – seven years his senior. Recently, a cache of documents has been discovered detailing, in Sherlock’s own hand, his early forays into criminal investigation.

Only weeks into his first year at Eton, Sherlock’s father calls him and his brother back to Underbyrne, the ancestral estate. The village midwife has been found with a pitchfork in her back in the estate’s garden, and Mrs. Holmes has been accused of the murder. Can Sherlock find the true killer in time to save her from the gallows?

Which book is this in the series?

This is the first of the early case files of Sherlock Holmes. The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife sets him on the path to his final career as the world’s most famous consulting detective.

How many books do you plan for the series?

My plan is to follow him to just prior to his meeting with Watson. I’m not sure how many that will involve. He is thirteen in the first, and he doesn’t meet Watson until he was 27. The first three (and the fourth planned one) span a single year. I don’t think the rest will be so close together.

How many books are completed?

At present, I have completed three and have plans for the fourth. The first three will all be out this summer. The fourth is planned for publication in 2021.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Of course, there is Sherlock, but we are also introduced to his family: Violette, his mother is a woman with a brilliant mind, but restricted by Victorian conventions from achieving her potential; Siger, his father, is loving, but remote; Sherlock’s Uncle Ernest tinkers with weapons and explosives; and his older brother Mycroft, an even greater genius than Sherlock, but a bit of a bully. We are also introduced to a young pickpocket, Constance, who develops a friendship (and possibly a bit more) with Sherlock.

What is the overall theme in this series?

I find my stories all focus on some way on belonging. In the book one, Sherlock’s first year at Eton isn’t going well, in part because he doesn’t fit in. The family must rally around Mrs. Holmes if they are to save her from the gallows and in doing so, develops deeper bonds between each other. These newfound ties will be tested but will serve them all in the later books.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife (Case One)

The Adventure of the Murdered Gypsy (Case Two)

The Adventure of the Deceased Scholar (Case Three)

What did you like best about writing this series?

While I had the adult Sherlock as a guide, I still had a lot I could fill in about him as a boy. It required a lot of research about the Victorian era, which was also fascinating. I learned about aspects of British life in the mid-1800s that will serve me well in trivia games in the future.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

I have a thriller set in post-Soviet Russia Saving Hope, and have numerous short stories in anthologies as well as in my own collections.

Bucket list of Mystic Rayne from An Angels' Unintentional Entanglement @TenaStetler #RLFblog #Paranormal Romance MysteryLet’s meet Mystic Rayne from An Angels’ Unintentional Entanglement, a paranormal romance 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 An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement.

An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Fallen warrior angel, Caden Silverwind, lives alone in Colorado’s rugged Rockies, healing from physical wounds as well as the mental anguish suffered during battles with dark demons. Then he finds a woman barely clinging to life after a horrendous beating. He is not prepared for the entanglement she brings to his life, nor the feelings she awakens in him.

Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent, Mystic Rayne’s personal dilemma and assignment nearly gets her killed. Divine intervention is a complication she never expected and her growing attraction to Caden is undeniable. Can she trust him with her secret?

Their quest to uncover her attacker takes them from the pristine mountains in Colorado to the wilds of Wyoming. Along the way, they find answers which may place them in more danger. Determined to solve the mystery, they must also navigate their feelings and fears to find love and unite heaven and earth.

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: 35+

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Wind River Valley Reservation

Profession: Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent

Ethnicity: Native American Indian

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

Tall, slender, long thick straight black hair that falls nearly to my waist. I usually wear it in a long braid hanging down my back. High cheek bones, full lips (at least that what Caden claims) and bronze skin.

Please tell us a little about yourself. I attended Harvard Law School to the chagrin of my grandfather. He’s or was the shaman for our tribe. I had an independent streak a mile wide and wanted to spread my wings off the reservation. As it turns out, my destiny was right here helping my people. Which is how and why I became a Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent assigned to Wyoming’s Wind River Valley. After my grandfather passed on, I took his place as shaman and on the tribal council which didn’t set well with the younger men of the tribe. Times they are a changing which nearly cost me my life.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Caden Silverwind. He’s a warrior angel. But that’s a story for another time. Maybe you should read to book to find out. <wink>

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 am the older twin. I have a twin brother. We were estranged for a long time. I managed to keep this a secret from the author for quite a while. LOL

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child. A stuffed eagle my spirit animal. I used to carry it around insisting it could fly. Which it couldn’t, but it helped me understand visions that I tried to deny. I was a difficult child.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Decadent cocoa pie with meringue topping. Yum!

Tell us about your best friend.

Chinoah – We’ve been friends since we could walk. My grandfather dubbed us the trouble twins with good reason. LOL

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

Niagara Falls and tour the United States in an RV. This is a great land and I’ve seen so very little of it.

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

The plot of land in Colorado where I was attacked by my own people. Not that my people are bad, just one that let evil spirits lead him. Other’s made bad choices, but you have those types wherever you go. Don’t you?

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

That’s a tough one. I’d like to meet the original government council that set up the reservations and put my people on them. I’d like to know their reasoning. History paints an ugly picture, I’d like to know if it was true and given the outcome, if they’d done anything differently.

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

The man who tried to take my birthright away. He was a vicious manipulator. He did unauthorized things with the tribe’s power given to him.

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

I’d like to go back in time before my grandfather died. Tell him he was right and I’ve made my peace with my destiny. I also wish I’d spent more time with him, learned the old ways from him. But I know he’s proud of me.

About Tena Stetler

Tena Stetler is a best-selling author of award winning paranormal romance/mysteries. She has an over-active imagination, which led to writing her first vampire romance as a tween to the chagrin of her mother and delight of her friends. After many years as a paralegal, then an IT Manager, she decided to live out her dream of pursuing a publishing career. She now has eleven books published, two under contract and several in the pipeline.

With the Rocky Mountains outside her window, she sits at her computer surrounded by a wide array of witches, shapeshifters, demons, faeries, and gryphons, with a Navy SEAL or two mixed in telling their tales. Her books tell stories of magical kick-ass women and mystical alpha males that dare to love them. Travel, adventure and a bit of mystery flourish in her books along with a few companion animals to round out the tales.

Colorado is home; shared with her husband of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a fifty-year-old box turtle. When she’s not writing, her time is spent kayaking, camping, hiking, biking or just relaxing in the great Colorado outdoors.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

 

 

Why did you choose this character for the interview today? Her strong spirit and fearlessness. She guided this story and kept the other character’s in line as much as possible. There are a cast of strong willed characters in An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement.

 

 

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you? That she had a twin brother. Didn’t see that coming.

 

 

Are any sequels planned for this book? An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement is the fourth book in A Demon’s Witch Series. A Magic Redemption was released in December of 2018 and I’m working on the sixth book in the series as we speak. All the books in the series are can be read as stand alones.

 

 

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet? I have a cozy mystery series simmering. I hope to bring it to fruition in the near future.

 

 

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? You are the reason I write my stories. I am so thankful for your support and continued reading of my books. For you, I want to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure. Characters that will grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh. Nothing feels better to a writer than to have readers clamoring for the next book. It makes my heart soar. Thank you all so much!
