Bucket list of Lily Pearl Evans from Secrets in the Sand #RLFblog #romanticsuspense Let’s meet Lily Pearl Evans from Secrets in the Sand, a romantic suspense by Alana Lorens. 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.

Secrets in the Sand by Alana Lorens

Genre Romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

After a run of bad relationships, Lily Pearl Evans has finally become an independent woman. In the New Mexico desert town of Chaparral, she works for herself, sets her own rules, and is determined no man will hold her back again.
Gene Nicholas worked for more than a decade to achieve his dream to be a doctor. Wanting to share his gifts with those less fortunate, he leaves south Florida to volunteer for Doctors Without Borders in Mexico.
When Gene provokes a showdown with the local Mexican drug cartel, he becomes a man with a price on his head. On the run, he ends up on Lily’s doorstep–a mystery man forced to conceal his past to protect them both. With the cartel’s dangerous web drawing tight around them, can Lily and Gene survive a drug lord’s revenge?

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: 30-something (a lady doesn’t tell)

Gender: female

Birthplace: Indiana

Profession: whorehouse madam

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

Let’s say I’m a well-preserved redhead, eyes so dark blue they’re nearly violet. I like to dress in soft, comfortable clothes, but they have to be a little sexy. After all, I run a bordello in New Mexico, just north of the border.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I didn’t start out to be a madam. My aunt Candy let me visit when I was a teenager, and I always loved her big old house outside of Chaparral. When she died fifteen years ago, she passed it on to me, and I gathered up a group of women I knew were having trouble in their own lives to move in here. Now we each contribute a share to making the place successful. Some work with clients—not me. I provide the place and the management. I’m independent, and don’t need anyone. That’s the way I want to live.

Who is the significant other in your life?

I had a long, sad relationship with Lonnie Berman. Fortunately, he was a long distance trucker, so we didn’t spend that much time together. He taught me not to trust men much. That’s why dealing with them as a business transaction is just fine with me. Until this stranger showed up on my doorstep in the middle of the night, Nick Richards. There’s a lot more to him than appeared on the surface, as I came to find out. He could be a danger—but my heart doesn’t say so.

Bucket List

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?

Actually, I don’t really know. My real mother went off on some personal kick when I was two and left me with the Evans family next door. She was gone for months. When she came back, they wanted to keep me, and she just signed the papers. Nearly broke my heart when my adopted family told me the truth.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

Books. Definitely books. I was always wanting to live some other life. Never expected to end up in this one, for sure.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

I love a great salsa. We have a grill out back where we roast our own peppers, poblano, chipotle and more. Just the right amount of chopped garlic, onion, lime, cilantro and the freshest tomatoes we can find. Oh, heaven—it’s to die for.

Tell us about your best friend.

Esther works with me at the house, managing the kitchen and the backstairs. She’s like a sister, always nagging me about my decisions. She means well. But she knows I’d never let anything happen to her, or any of the other young women who’ve thrown their fates in with mine.

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

So many places, and I doubt I’ll ever see any of them! When you run a business, it’s hard to take time off. But if I had to choose…I’d say Paris, and the back country of Australia. Ha! Romantic dreams, right? But living in the desert has given me an appreciation of the wild lands, and I’d just love to see a kangaroo!

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

The hospital. I hate hospitals. I’ve had really bad migraines since I was about 14, and sometimes it’s necessary to hit the ER. But I hold off until I can’t avoid it. Too many needles and bright lights and people who don’t really care about you.

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

My ex, Lonnie. He drops in every so often, trying to spark me up. I wish he’d just take no for an answer and take off for good.

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

Huh. I don’t know. I think maybe I’d like to go back and ask my birth mother why she left me. Maybe I’d feel less insecure about everything in my life.

About Alana Lorens

Alana Lorens always dreamed of being able to handle the drama and intrigue in everyday life. She lives as a post-modern hippie in Asheville, North Carolina, a single mother of her last child of seven, a young adult daughter on the autism spectrum, finding that every day feels a lot like first contact with a new species.

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

These two characters actually came from a science fiction role playing game that my former husband and I used to play on the Internet. We both loved them very much, and I wanted to preserve them in a way that others could share them. At the time, I wasn’t writing sci-fi, so I had to find a way that I could recreate their story in the modern world, in America. Lily Pearl is still a madam, and Gene is still a doctor, but the dangers that face them both are quite different from ray guns and hostile aliens. I’m quite pleased with the transformation!

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

I have jumped into most of them, I think. I write romance and suspense as Alana Lorens, and fantasy and science fiction for adult and young adult as Lyndi Alexander. I don’t focus on one genre—I write the stories that come to me, then figure out where they fit in the literary world.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

When I was a newspaper reporter in south Florida back in the 80s, I got to fly the F-16 flight simulator at Homestead Air Force Base. Totally destroyed a $7 million dollar plane in about five minutes!

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

I prefer to write story over sex. While my characters have normal relationships (well, in this book there are some kinks off camera, because of the nature of the beast), I try to write the best suspense/plot I can. When I’m reading a story, if the plot doesn’t hold together, it doesn’t matter how much sexytimes there are, I just can’t keep reading. That being said, I believe readers will be satisfied with what intimate scenes they receive.

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

I appreciate everyone who reads my stories—that’s why I create them! I hope you enjoy these characters as much as I do.

Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Before the Whistle by Linda O’Connor

Genre Medical Hockey Romance

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

Jordyn Kendra is a talented designer and savvy businesswoman. Spending eighteen hours a day establishing and running a successful business doesn’t leave much time for pursuing a relationship, and frankly she hasn’t really missed it. But when an invitation arrives that could help her fulfill her career dreams, she has to make a decision. What’s harder: going to a gala without a date or finding someone to ask?

Ben Matthews, head athletic therapist for the wildly popular Clarington Quakes hockey team, tends to stand out in a crowd. When Jordyn doesn’t recognize him, it puts a dent in his ego, but he catches her attention when he jumps in to save a life.

She’s a queasy bystander, cowering at the sight of blood, and he’s cool, calm, and confident, which she finds irresistible. With a little prodding from her spirited aunt, Jordyn realizes that she and Ben might be the perfect mismatch.

Before the Whistle – when cool and calm in an emergency is totally hot.

Know the Heroine from Before the Whistle

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

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

She designs skate wear and swimwear for a living, and she’s learned the hard way that the fabric can do funny things in the water – transparency and shrinkage oh my. So as part of her routine, she whips up a a mock swimsuit and tests out the fabric in the water. The pool in her condo building is open 24 hours, so she’d be there testing out her latest creation.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Chocolate Caramel Turtle Pie – it’s a fav!

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Comfy sweats – unless Ben is around – then it’s cashmere and slim-fitting capris.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s a master seamstress so she can fix anything – with fabric and thread.

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

She reluctantly tried to sign up for a First Aid/CPR course and ended up in a First Responder course. It’s a little daunting for someone who faints at the sight of blood and quakes at the thought of doing the Heimlich maneuver. She has 2 best friends who are doctors – and figure they’ll jump in to save a life. Why would she need to?

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

She recently made little duckling costumes for the local kiddy skating club. Putting little ones quickly at ease is part of her job.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She wakes up slowly but gets up early.

Can she use chopsticks?

Like a champ.

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

Nope, she’s a tea drinker – caffeine in the morning and a fruity herbal at night.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Color Swatch, Trends in Fabric, Quickbooks, Swimwear Today, Skate Canada

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Earrings with sparkle and colour.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Personal vehicle – but her work is down the hall from her condo so the commute is short.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle everything including fabric swatches!

But Willow doesn’t know how Preston inwardly struggles to forget a past that could derail the career he’s worked hard to achieve.

Willow wrestles with her own secrets. After a disastrous relationship leaves her broke and disillusioned, she vows never to let anyone rob her of her dreams again. But as she gets to know Preston, it’s as if their tumultuous pasts meld together into something so startling it transforms their relationship and their lives forever.

Know the Hero from When Love Whispers

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

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

He loves to be comfortable, but as a military cadet, he wears the academy uniform during the day. After class, he can’t wait to dive into running shorts and a t-shirt. He’s a runner, and he’s running every free moment.

What is he like around children?

He isn’t accustomed to children, but there’s one baby he loves and wants to hold. He never thought he wanted a family. He’s determined to pursue his military career, but when he sees Willow holding her baby, the confusing surge of emotions make him wonder what he really wants.

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

He’s not a coffee drinker. Because he’s a runner, he drinks lots of water. Not that he likes water, but he needs to stay hydrated, even in a humid place like Charleston.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He has all the phone apps. One of his favorites is the food delivery service. When he’s studying, he’ll often miss meals. He has a senior project due and he’d rather work on that than eat. He’s an eat to live type of guy. Even though he’s a runner, he can’t resist a cheeseburger and fries. He also likes the flower order app. After all, what better way to make a new mother smile that order her a bouquet of two dozen red roses?

Beard or clean-shaven?

He has to be clean-shaven. At the academy, haircuts and shaving are part of a strict standard, but when he’s forced to spend a few weeks at Willow’s family’s farm, he relaxes from the academy’s strict code and enjoy a laxer standard.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He doesn’t care what he drives, but his mother, with her newfound wealth, greeted him Christmas morning with a new sports car. It’s a babe magnetic, which he’d appreciate if he had time for women, but he enrolled in the academy to pursue a military career and that’s his focus … for now.

Know the Hero from Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman #RLFblog #Postapocalyptic #fantasy #SciFiAngelica Clyman, 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.

Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman

Genre Post-apocalyptic fantasy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings) R

The totality of a solar eclipse lasts only a few short minutes. That’s more than enough time for an apocalypse to erupt.
Almost eighteen years have passed since the Eclipse changed the Earth forever, and Sebastian Za’in rose from the chaos and seized control, imposing his order on the broken planet. In a world ruled by fear and superstition, where all gods have perished, there is no one who can stand up to Za’in, the man rumored to be one of the Nephilim—hybrid offspring of Angel and Man. In a few short months, another Eclipse will occur, and while there are those who expect a new natural disaster, Za’in has plans of his own.

Completely unaware of this global turmoil, Kayla Steelryn has spent most of her life in a quiet village, longing to uncover her hidden past. When she leaves her home in search of answers, she finds herself faced with the truth about her identity, forced to choose between the two men she loves, and thrust into a conflict where she alone has the power to stop an event more disastrous than the end of the world.

 

Know the Hero from Dominion of the Star

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

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

Jeremy is usually found brooding somewhere beneath the stars, whether it’s up on a water tower or down in the wastelands, he usually has something heavy on his mind.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He can’t afford to be picky in a world ravaged by disaster, but he hates slimy things in jars.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

The darker the better, but after the Ruiners become clamped to his arms, shirts are no longer an option!

Does he know how to fix things?

Jeremy is better at breaking things, but he can get by with very little.

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

What HASN’T gone badly? He was born under a bad sign and things have gone down from there, but he still can’t deny some of his problems are his own fault.

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

Jeremy doesn’t really have experience with any kids other than Kit, and she is no ordinary little girl…

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s used to getting up early, so he’s not any more irritable than usual (thankfully)!

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

He prefers that people don’t know the truth about him, but it’s been hard to escape. When he first met Kayla, she was blissfully unaware of his darkness and that drew him to her.

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

Jeremy’s not afraid to get his hands dirty!

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

The cross tattoo across his chest wasn’t his idea and he’d get rid of it if he could – but it was part of the deal if he wanted to become an Arch.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He prefers to rely on himself, so things were better when he had his motorcycle. Sharing that truck with the pirates was definitely a low point…

Recycle or toss?

Toss – his world’s so messed up already, he doesn’t think such a small gesture would make a difference.

Introducing Sara Woods from Love Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, by Lyndi Alexander #RLFblog #PNR #MysteryLet’s meet Sara Woods from Love Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, a supernatural romnance/mystery, by Lyndi Alexander. 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 story your author wrote.

Love Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me by Lyndi Alexander

Genre paranormal romance/mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Running away isn’t necessarily the answer.
In her mad rush to escape a failed marriage, Sara Woods takes the first job available and lands in the middle of a mystery. Her first assignment as a news reporter for the Ralston Courier is the investigation of a string of deaths, all young women, all her age.
She becomes a patient at the Goldstone Clinic, a local mecca of healing, to deal with chronic pain from her past. But all is not as it seems at the Goldstone, its doctors and nurses are all the picture of perfect beauty and health. Patients at the clinic first seem to get better, then they deteriorate. Sara enlists the help of Dr. Rick Paulsen, who teaches her how to access her internal power, skills she never knew she had, revealing secrets from her past. The closer they work together, the more she falls in love with him. Police officer Brendon Zale also takes an interest in Sara, but he acts like a stalker, watching her every move, and he won’t leave her alone.
As she digs deeper into the story, and more young women die without explanation, she tries to choose allies wisely, but not till the last confrontation does she discover the identity of her true enemy.
By then, it’s too late.

Introducing Sara Woods

Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 24

Gender: female

Birthplace: a small town in Pennsylvania

Profession: newspaper journalist

Ethnicity: Caucasian

What do you look like?

Petite, short dark brown hair, wide brown eyes. Not model-pretty, but I catch people’s attention

Who is the significant other in your life?

It used to be my husband Jesse. But that’s over. So now I’ve met Rick Paulsen, a tall young blond doctor with Brad-Pitt blue sapphire eyes—my downfall.

How do you dress?

Definitely casual and comfortable. The life of a reporter is pretty hectic. You never know where you’re going to end up in the course of a day, especially with an editor like mine. One minute you could be in City Hall and the next, in a cow barn!

On what special skills do you rely?

Mostly I work by my intuition—what I feel in my gut. When you’re working for a newspaper, sometimes you’re doing a story people want you to do, and sometimes you’re uncovering something awful. You have to know when people are telling you the truth. If you don’t think they are, then you have to cross-check and do your research to be able to bring your readers the truth.

What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?

I always have a pen and a notebook. You never know when you’re going to get a quote from someone—it’s important to have the reputation of getting things right.

Are you close to family?

No, my parents have passed on, and there really isn’t anyone else. That’s why I packed up and left Pittsburgh after the divorce. I had nowhere to “go home” to, so I just grabbed the first newspaper job I could find.

How well do you know your neighbors?

My landlady, Thelma McCracken, lives downstairs, and I have the apartment in the upstairs of her house. She used to be a reporter for the Courier back in the day, and she has a finger in just about every pot in town. She’s a great source for material, and she also worries about me like an old maiden aunt.

What would you like people who hear your story to know?

That you never know everything about someone, even if you love them with all your heart. Protect yourself and stay safe.

Meet Remy from The Mortal Vampire in the Mystic Desire Anthology by Suzanne Smith @Suzanneromance #RLFblog #Paranormal romance.Welcome Remy from The Mortal Vampire in Mystic Desire, a new Paranormal Romance Anthology by Suzanne Smith and others.

Introducing Remy

Age: Three hundred years and counting. He’s immortal

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Unknown, as he has amnesia. He was found bloodied and battered, barely alive in a California gold mine by his vampire maker Dr. Merlot.

Profession: None.

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Pure vampire.

Please provide a physical description of your character.

Well over 6′ tall, with flawlessly smooth, pale skin, wavy, jet black hair and dark, piercing eyes. Athletic build, pretty buff, for being a vampire and having only a liquid diet.

Please tell us a little about your character.

Remy is a bit cocky and conceited. He has no qualms about sucking the life out of humans, who he considers inferior, until he meets the innocent and beautiful mortal Angela.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?

Angela.

How does your hero dress?

Nice, but casual. Lived in jeans and silk jerseys, linen shirts. He doesn’t rely on his clothes to attract attention or make a statement. He is irresistible and he knows it.

What are the qualities of his voice?

Deep, rich, sexy. Saturated with testosterone. The kind of voice that hits you right in the groin area.

If you could only hear this character’s voice (but not see him) what characteristic would identify him?

Confident.

Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

He lives comfortably in a spacious condo on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. He could live in a mansion if he wanted to as he has made profitable investments in property in Chicago’s prestigious Gold Coast area and is in fact quite wealthy.

Does he have children?

As a vampire, he doesn’t have children, but he feels a strong affection for kids. He has never been able to bring himself to harm a child. Unfortunately, everyone else is fair game.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

Honestly, blood. He’s hungry. But when he meets Angela, that turns to lust, then, the need for intimacy.

How does your character handle challenges?

Well, because he is such a powerful vampire, the only person in his circle that presents a physical challenge is his maker, Dr. Merlot. It pisses Remy off a little bit to know that Merlot could best him in a fight. But, he has the good sense to avoid going toe to toe with Merlot. He is also faced with the personal challenge of not being able to consummate his love for Angela, which he deals with by sheepishly running away when they are on the verge of making love. He only leaves to protect her but she doesn’t know that, so he comes off as a bit of a jerk.

Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most?

On an emotional level, the human he is in love with, Angela. On a physical level, his estranged vampire girlfriend Giselle.

Why?

He is afraid Angela might see him as unworthy or undeserving of love because of what he is. That wounds him deeply. Giselle has a jealous and vindictive nature and at one point in the story, she is much stronger than Remy.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

Frankly, who better to write about? I’m eternally young, smart, beautiful, powerful. But even with all that going for me, I’m still flawed, which adds an extra layer of interest.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

Yes. When all the dust settled we both found out who I really was.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about?

Maybe my maker, Dr. Merlot. Care to tell us why? Because anyone that has been around for over one thousand years has a story to tell.

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

My story is just beginning.

Tell us about The Mortal Vampire in Mystic Desire

Genre: Supernatural Romance
Book heat: R
Remy is far from your typical vampire, though he doesn’t know it until he meets the mortal Angela. Once their eyes lock, not only does he feel physical pain for the first time in his existence, but he also sees a vision of himself in another world, one that is both seductive and frightening. Because Angela’s influence is so strong, he begins to consider the possibility that perhaps she is more than human after all. He tries to convince himself that she is a witch, attempting to cast a spell on him. But he knows that this theory makes little sense because he is immune to what the witches call “glamouring”, seizing control of their unwitting victims mind. Still, as his attraction for Angela grows, he becomes weaker and weaker, until he is certain that true death is only hours away.
From witches and warlocks to ghosts, psychics and more, the Mystic Desire anthology by BVS has something for everyone.

Suzanne Smith Social Media

Suzanne Smith grew up on the northwest side of Chicago. She attended Wells High School, then North Park College, where she graduated with a BA degree, majoring in psychology. Currently, she lives in River Grove, a small suburb outside of Chicago. Her days are spent managing a very busy dental office in Chicago’s Gold Coast area. Her nights are mostly quiet, spent in the company of her two rescue cats, Zilly and H.K. and her dog Sammy, with an occasional night out with friends. She recently started writing, as a hobby, but soon came to love the freedom that writing gave her, freedom to go to any place or time she wanted. Freedom to breathe life into her characters. Writing is now an obsession.
