Introducing Toni Belluci

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 38
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Staten Island, New York
Profession: Real Estate Broker
Ethnicity: Irish American
What do you look like?
I’m average height, slim with long blonde hair and big blue eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
At the present time I’m dating Eric Summers. He is a little older than me, but is well distinguished, always dressing sharp.
How do you dress?
I love wearing tight jeans and short skirts with my signature stilettos.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I live comfortably. I try my best to wait for a sale. I’ve never buy over my means.
What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?
My handbag is so oversized that I lose things in it. But my standbys are my wallet, sunglasses, multiple tubes of lipstick, tissues, hairbrush and my make-up case.
What is your family like?
I was raised by my foster parents. My parents were killed in a car accident. That’s how I met Francine at one of the foster kid parties. My foster parents put me through school and treated me like their own.
How do others perceive you based upon looks, and is this assumption accurate?
My friends France and Amy feel that I dress like a teenager. They say my skirt and dresses are too short. I don’t see it that way. I have the figure to wear them, so why not.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
Absolutely. When France, Amy and I found the dealer door and the basement, it was imperative that they guys didn’t find out. I would take that secret to my grave.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
Trusting a man. Eric is a nice guy but there’s something about him that makes her doubt her inner feelings, especially after finding out her marriage was a complete farce with her husband’s deception.
What is your biggest need?
My biggest need is to find a trustworthy and loving man who I can have a lasting relationship with.
What would you like to tell your writer?
I’d like to tell her that I love the character you have developed me into. The outfits she puts me in are awesome. I just wish she would introduce me to a nice honest man.
What would you like people who hear your story to know?
I want them to know they don’t have to settle. Love will come your way when you least expect it. Never put yourself on the short end of the stick and believe and love yourself and trust your instincts.

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.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
I can’t believe my writer wrote about my traumatic teenage years. How embarrassing! It’s hard enough keeping my past from my husband and in-laws. Now the whole world knows the torture I’ve endured. Ugh!

I think C Becker likes to cause friction in my relationships. She utilizes my personality and background to create a compelling plot.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
I wish C Becker would focus on how happy Mark and I are after this story ends and stop digging into our secrets. I would imagine a great romance blossoming with no conflict. Ah. If only life was that easy…
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
I would like C Becker to write a story about Parker, let him find happiness. I’ve know Parker since I was seventeen. The guy deserves someone who can love him. Parker reminds me of the man who loses everything and walks off into the sunset. I wish David would find someone, too. He needs a woman who can put up with his big personality.

Meet Dan Morgan from The Man of Her Dreams by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #PNR #psychicWelcome Dan from The Man of Her Dreams, an erotic paranormal romance.

Meet Dan Morgan

Age: mid-30s
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Greenwood, South Carolina
Profession: Maker of fine, handcrafted furniture
Ethnicity: American, Southern male
Please provide a physical description of Dan.
Am I allowed to say Dan’s handsome as all hell and leave it at that? No? *sigh* Okay. Dan has blue eyes and brown hair that could stand a trim. He’s about 6 feet 2 inches and pretty muscular. He used to be on the San Francisco police force and he’s kept that lean, mean attitude that still shows in stern expressions and confident swagger.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Dan was on the SFPD for years, working homicide until he moved home when he’d had enough death and political bull. He loves his mama and her twin sisters, his house on the lake, fried chicken and hush puppies. And he loves his peace and quiet, which is why he resented Cassandra Hudson poking her nose into his town and his life. He’s a badass and rude when he has a mind to be, but there’s no one better to have on your side when badassery is needed.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Cassandra Hudson, a beautiful, self-proclaimed psychic from California. She shows up, meets Dan by accident and says that she’s there to find him and warn him of a danger to his life. He’s not impressed.
How does your hero dress?
Casual clothing, jeans and tee shirts while he’s working or fishing, slacks and button-down shirt when he’s out.
What are the qualities of his voice? (pitch, quality, volume)
Rich baritone that drops to a low growl when he’s aroused. He has a decided drawl with soft vowels and a slow cadence that mesmerizes Cassandra.
How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
He attended the University of South Carolina, but got his real education on the police force in San Francisco. That’s where he learned to read people and how to handle himself.
Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
Dan makes custom furniture and earns a very good living from it. But what he really cares about is fishing, being with family, and his friends. He loves his town and being able to live life as he wants.
What special skills does your character rely on?
He hasn’t forgotten the skills he learned on the force. So he keeps a sharp eye on his environment, continues training with his revolver and hones his rifle skills with hunting during the season. He also knows where to find the best fishing on the lake and how to fry up his catch. Fine furniture making takes patience and steadiness, as well as a good eye, and Dan has all of those, which explains how he can make such a good living at it.
What is your character’s family like?
Dan’s father is dead, but his mother is still alive and living with her twin sisters in Abbeville, a few miles from Greenwood. His mother is justifiably proud of him, as are his aunts, Birdie and Delia. Birdie and Delia are a hoot! I based them on my mom and her twin sister, who we call the Twin Tornadoes. The nickname fits, as it would for Delia and Birdie. All three ladies are Southern, through and through, which is a characteristic I love.
Is he close to family?
Absolutely! Very close.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Like many police officers, Dan sees black and white. He’s not a very flexible man in that regard.
What is your hero’s biggest personal flaw?
His inability to bend or see anything beyond his experience.
Why is Dan so unwilling to believe Cassandra?
In addition to the police’s general distrust of psychics, he had a case where the psychic misled the parents of a missing child and the child turned up dead. He has no use for things he can’t logically explain.
If Dan doesn’t appreciate Cassandra’s “gift,” what does he like about her?
Of course, she’s beautiful. And he comes to see how honest she is and sincere. His mother and aunts like her, which is important. And she has real talent—she’s a renowned artist, in both paint and textiles. Since he makes handcrafted furniture, he admires creativity in all its forms.

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?
Dee has a vision of the perfect man and I’m it. Haha! No, really, she had Cassandra in mind first and needed a good foil. So she created a hardnosed, irrationally rational, badass—me. And I’m perfect for Cassandra in every way, both as a nemesis and a lover.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
How mean I was to Cassandra at the beginning. It’s not something I’m proud of and my mama would be real disappointed in me if she knew. Which of course she will if she reads this book. Damn.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
Turns out, I have something of a kinky side. I sure as hell never knew it about myself, but I guess Cassandra brings out every aspect of me when it comes to making love. I was surprised but fortunately, neither Cassandra nor I are unhappy about the discovery.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
I think Dee like paranormal, so I believe she should write more of them. She added Passionate Destiny to her paranormal collection, but she should do more.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Thanks for opening my eyes to Cassandra’s gifts as well as he beauty. You’ve made me a happy man!

Meet Dylan from Lyrical Embrace, Suspense by Amber Daulton @AmberDaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspense Welcome Dylan Haynes from Lyrical Embrace, a new Romantic Suspense by Amber Daulton.

Meet Dylan Haynes

Age: 25
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Willow Springs, Vermont
Profession: Music Teacher; Ex-Drummer for a rock band
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Dylan, please provide a physical description of yourself.
I’m about six feet tall with short, spiky brown hair and blue eyes. I keep in good shape because I’m a volunteer firefighter, and I gotta be quick when disaster strikes. I have a red dragon tattoo on my left arm, and it twists around my biceps.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I like to think of myself as a normal guy, and I hope I portray that to the people I first meet. I used to play for an indie rock band, Fortune’s Glory, but most people don’t recognize me since the band never made it big. I’m grateful for that. I’ve moved back home to Willow Springs, so I usually don’t meet clubbers and fans anymore.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Erica Timberly is the perfect woman for me. She’s strong, beautiful, and stubborn, but vulnerable too. She’s an excellent violinist and loves music just as much as I do. After all the crap she’s been through, she’s still trusting and kind. She loves with her whole heart, and I’m damn glad she picked me.

Insight from the Author

How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Dylan grew up around music because his parents owned and operated a music academy, so he spent a lot of time learning to play the drums and other instruments. Music is his life, and even he dropped out of college freshman year to join Fortune’s Glory when he was eighteen years old.
Are any of his skills a source of pride? Embarrassment? Which ones and why?
He’s an excellent drummer and is proud of that, but he loves to teach as much as he loves performing. When his students succeed, he feels as though he’s accomplished something great and takes pride in their achievements.
What is your character’s family like?
Dylan’s parents and siblings are supportive and understanding. He’s the baby in the family, but they treat him like an adult, most of the time. His mom has a knack for embarrassing him, but he knows she only does so because she loves him.
Is your character involved in his community?
Yes, very much so. After years of partying and having fun, he wanted to do something good and give back to the community where he’d come from, so he volunteers as a fireman. As such, he’s also a certified EMT.
What is your hero’s biggest hopes and dreams?
He always wanted to be a famous musician, but his dreams changed when he was on tour and playing clubs with Fortune’s Glory. He didn’t like the person he was turning into. The drugs, alcohol, and groupies distracted him from the music, so he was just going through the motions and no longer enjoying himself. After quitting the band, he found a new dream and succeeded in reaching it. He has a real, down-to-earth life, which includes a good job and a loving woman. Life couldn’t be better for him.

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.
What do you wish your writer, Amber, had not told others about you?
Back when I was still drumming for Fortune’s Glory, Erica attended the concerts at the clubs and crushed hard on me, but I didn’t even know she existed. I just never saw her in the crowd of screaming, dancing fans. I was nothing but an arrogant, sexist hound dog back then, and Erica knew it. After I stopped drinking and left the band, I headed back home to get my life together. Then Erica and I finally met. I’m embarrassed of the way I acted before, but I’ve since proved to Erica I’m a changed man.
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most sad? What makes your writer the most happy?
I think Amber was a little sad when writing about my bandmate who overdosed on heroin. That time in my life was difficult for me, so I’m relieved she didn’t go in great detail about it. More than anything, she was getting all weepy when writing about Erica’s past. You see, Erica was in an abusive relationship before we met, so Amber had no choice but to mention it.
At the end of the story, Amber really enjoyed writing the scene where Erica fought back against her ex and finally broke free from him for good. Amber prefers strong female leads, and that’s definitely Erica.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
She likes making people smile and giving them happy endings. I’m a prime example of that. I was getting my life back on track after quitting the band, but then Amber introduced me to Erica. Wow! That one moment changed everything for me, and I wouldn’t give it up for all the money or fame in the world.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Lyrical Embrace is book four in the Deerbourne Inn series–a multi-author collaboration of novellas–and each author is only allowed to write one book in the series. Hopefully, that will change because my older brother, Birley, desperately needs a woman in his life. His ex-wife split town years ago, and he’s raising his son and daughter alone. The kids are great–don’t get me wrong–but he needs another reason to get out of bed in the morning. All he does is work at the music academy and take care of the kids. He rarely dates. Damn, the man doesn’t even bed hop. So I hope Amber will brighten up Birley’s future sooner rather than later. If not, I’m gonna have a long talk with her.

Introducing Amy Mills from A Different Side of Perfect (#2), by Karen Cino @Karencino #RLFblog #WomensFiction Contemporary RomanceLet’s meet Amy Mills from A Different Kind of Perfect (Book 2), a Women’s Fiction Contemporary Romance, by Karen Cino. 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.

A Different Kind of Perfect ( Book 2) by Karen Cino

Genre Women’s Fiction Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
It is the grand opening of The Perfect Pitch. All the pieces fall into place until Francine’s diagnosis of breast cancer, throwing their lives upside down. While Amy and Jason deal with the reaction from her family to their interracial relationship, Toni finds herself in another overbearing relationship with Pelicans third baseman Gary Thompson.
In the mist of taking care of Francine and working at The Perfect Pitch, Richie gets a call from the owner of the Pelicans. He is offered a job as pitching coach for the team. Richie accepts the job, putting a huge strain on his marriage which affects all of them.

Introducing Amy Mills

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 39
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Staten Island, New York
Profession: Real Estate Broker
Ethnicity: Irish American
What do you look like?
I am average height and weight with shoulder length blonde hair that I can wear either as its natural curls or straightened, along with big green eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Jason Maddock, who is everything I ever wanted in a man.
What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?
The question should be what don’t you carry in your purse. Besides the usual: wallet, sunglasses, lipstick, tweeter and cellphone I always have a notebook, calculator (yes I know there’s one on my cell, but I am a bit old fashioned) a half a dozen pens, a tape measurer and a mini flashlight. Yes, my handbag is heavy!
What is your family like?
I’m lucky to have both my mom and dad still with me. They live in the same house that my mom grew up in. My dad always called us the three musketeers.
Are you close to family?
We were a tight knit family. We did everything together. When I was younger, we went to church every Sunday, sitting in the first row and after mass we would go out to the diner for breakfast with a few of the other parishioners my parents were friendly with. I became closer to my dad as I got older. My mom was great but she was very opinionated, always giving me the negative aspect on things, whereas my dad was always positive.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
You bet. In The Perfect Pitch, when Francine, Toni and I found the hidden basement, it took everything in my power not to reveal the secret, despite how dangerous things turned out. It was important to all three of us that we keep this a secret until we found out what it was all about.
What is your biggest need?
I’m looking for acceptance from my mother in my relationship with Jason. I need to keep my independence and not lose my identity by being in Jason’s shadow.
How emotionally expressive are you to others?
To strangers, I give them nothing. I’ve always been like that for as far back as I can remember. My best friends Francine and Toni can read me like a book. They can read through any expression on my face and also by the tone in my voice. Now with Jason a part of my life, I have opened the emotional door to him. But generally, I’m a private person.
What would you like to tell your writer?
I love the life you have given me. My only wish would be that you wouldn’t have let me mother be so hard on my relationship with Jason, which is putting a strain on my future plans. I love my friendship with Francine. She is such a wonderful friend. I would love to have my own book. I’m here if you need any ideas.
What would you like people who hear your story to know?
The first thing is to never give up on love. Once you find that one person who makes you happy, don’t let anyone defer you because of their views.

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?
I think she loves my carefree attitude and my dedication to my friends.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
I wish she didn’t make it known that I favor Francine over Toni.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
I feel the writer was surprised that I became involved in an interracial relationship.
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?
I feel the writer is happy that I finally found a man who I love and respect. Arguing with Toni over simple things makes my writer sad. She hates to see me get upset.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think my writer loves to write as a way to keep focus in her life.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
I’d love her to try her hands on a time travel or historical. I’d love to see how she would handle writing outside her box.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Of course I would love her to write a book about me. But I think if she wrote a book about Toni, it would be a hit since Toni is a very interesting character.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Keep writing and creating wonderful characters. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be able to be a part of her story.
