A Reel Christmas in Romance by JJ DiBenedetto

Owner of the lone movie theater in Romance, Marianne Carter loves the old movies she shows on the big screen. She’s just struck up an email friendship with a newcomer to town. Unaware of his identity but feeling loyal to him, she fights her attraction to a handsome man she keeps bumping into around town.
Under a false identity, Jack Nelson comes to Romance to investigate the historic movie theater and decide if it should receive the status of a historical landmark. Little does he know the woman sending him charming emails is the same one who owns the theater.
While Marianne’s theater plays the old classic film The Shop Around the Corner, Marianne and Jack unknowingly play out the same story in real life. Will they figure it out in time to write their own happy ending?

Hunters’ Academy 1: Entrance Exam by Ivy Hearne

Survive or Die.

It’s not much of a school motto—not as inspiring as, say, “Let us give light to the world,” or “Knowledge is liberty,” or even just “Light and Truth.” Those are all real school mottoes. So is this one. It belongs to the Hunters’ Academy. And now, so do I.
Since she was twelve years old, Kacela Deluca has suffered debilitating migraines. On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, she learns her headaches are the result of untapped psychic abilities. She’s given a choice: continue to suffer, or leave behind everything she knows and join the Hunters’ Academy. The only catch? If she doesn’t pass the entrance exam, she’ll die.
A teen with blocked psychic powers, a panther shifter who can’t—or won’t—shift, a secret academy, and the power to defend the entire world…if only Kacela can unleash her potential before it’s too late.
Fans of Vampire Academy, Mortal Instruments, Harry Potter, and Dragon School will love Hunters’ Academy!
Entrance Exam is episode one of Hunters’ Academy – expect a new episode every month beginning Fall 2018!

Shattered by Bry AnnRead Shattered by Bry Ann #FreeBookFriday #Read

Sometimes, when I really think about it, I can almost feel the way the breeze felt against my skin that day. How it washed over me, cooling my heated skin.
I remember counting the minutes it took to get to my boyfriend’s house. Twenty-two, but it took twenty-three that day. Maybe the extra minute was a warning.
One I didn’t heed, of course.
I wanted love. It’s all I wanted. I would have done anything for it.
It made me an easy victim.
Tell me I’m pretty here, hug me there and I was a puppet on his string. He pulled and pulled until he asked me to do the one thing I absolutely could not do.
It broke me to tell him no. Tore me up. I went over to his house that day to try and find a way to make it up to him. To fix what I broke.
Minute nineteen.
Cool breeze. Sunshine. Hope for love, fear I ruined my chance at it by being disobedient.
Minute twenty.
Black. One minute was all it took for Sage Briar-Rose to cease to exist.
To shatter her.
This is the story of how I lost myself. The story of how my naive search for love left me shattered.
Trigger Warning: This book deals with extremely sensitive topics. If you get triggered easily, I’d chose one of my other books.

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #romanticcomedyLinda O’Connor, 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 the book.

Perfectly Christmas by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
On the first day of Christmas, his true love said to him, “Sorry, I have to work.”
That’s the life of a surgeon, and Dr. Madison Hayes wouldn’t have it any other way.
Dr. Quinn Malone has another priority. In the countdown to Christmas, he needs to convince his old flame that there’s more to life – and love – than the job itself.
This time, his heart is in it for the long haul. Really.
Romantic and…complicated – it’s Perfectly Christmas!

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Builds a fire in the fireplace and cozies up with the latest issue of A Bit about Drills.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Pizza from Pizza Heaven in Strathaven. If she can get out of making dinner, she’s all over it.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
In the operating room, she’s in surgical greens. At home, it’s comfy sweat pants and an oversized sweatshirt.
Does she know how to fix things?
She’s a master with a drill – it’s been a hobby for years. If it can be fixed with a drill, she’s your woman.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She’s not a huge fan of the Secret Santa gift exchange. Buying gifts that people don’t need and want even less is not exactly her cup of tea. But she’s trying to fit into small-town Strathaven so she agrees to participate. Whose name does she pull out of the hat? None other than her old flame Quinn Malone. Groan. Now she has three weeks to make a homemade gift for him. The silver lining is that she’ll be able to use her drill – soap on a rope anyone?
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She’s used to putting patients, including children, quickly at ease.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
She’s an early riser – all those years of 6 a.m rounds at the hospital have molded her into an early bird.
Can she use chopsticks?
Yes. She’s a surgeon with superior fine motor skills – chopsticks are a piece of cake.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Coffee – black. Quick and easy – and it means less grocery shopping.
What apps would she have on her phone?
CPS (Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties), UptoDate, Mobile Banking, Grey’s Anatomy, Fundamentals of Surgery, A Bit about Drills
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Earrings – discrete turquoise crystals are her fav.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
Unadorned skin.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Her own CRV that she can pack all her belongings in – handy when she moves from small town to small town. But in Strathaven, the car stays parked in her garage, and everything is close enough to walk.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle (always).
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

The Last Post (In Follow Your Star Home) by Caroline Warfield @carowarfield @bellesinblue #RLFblog #HistoricalRomanceCaroline Warfield, 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.

The Last Post (novella in Follow Your Star Home) by Caroline Warfield

Genre: Historical Holiday Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
France, 1919
Love for Rosemarie Legrand gave Harry the will to go on during the horror of trench warfare. Now, army orders trap him in a camp awaiting repatriation. A bout of the Spanish flu lays him even lower, but he is determined not to leave without her. He’ll desert if he has to.
Rosemarie waits for word on her cousin’s farm where she took refuge when war reached the outskirts of Amiens. She wrote to tell him. Has he forgotten her? When the slimmest of information arrives, she sets out to find him.
Can these two lovers reunite before it is too late? How can he marry her if he can’t find her?
Why did you write this book?
The Last Post is a sequel to “Roses in Picardy,” which was in last year’s anthology. “Roses” ended with them happy-for-now in December 1916 with the Great War still raging around Rosemarie’s little cottage near Amiens, and my readers demanded to know how it turned out.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read historical anything: romance, mystery, non-fiction, literary fiction, children’s books…as long as it is historical, I’ll read it.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
One! Dorothy Dunnett’s Crawford of Lymond, Mary Balogh’s Duke of Bewcastle, Carla Kelly’s Able Six are some of them.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m writing another anthology novella, this one set in Bath and culminating in a Valentine’s Day Ball. The hero is a battered old sergeant with a heart of gold. I’m also scoping out the next book in my Children of Empire saga. This one may land in Egypt during a rebellion against the Ottoman Empire.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll have the first of a new set of three stories for Children of Empire by mid year. I also plan to write the middle passages between Roses in Picardy and The Last Post, and release it as a full length novel.

Allyson R Abbott Social Media

#1 International Bestselling and Award-Winning Author (fiction and non-fiction) A Blooming Boomer who loves life on the road, making new friends and meeting great people. Enjoying life in the slow lane whenever possible!
After a few full-on years of travelling, which included a year and a half checking out New Zealand, a few Pacific islands, Australia and South Africa, 15months driving around the USA in a motorhome, some quick few weeks visit to Canada, Mexico, Cuba and Spain, Allyson and her husband have now decided to pull over onto the hard shoulder for a while and have settled on the Valencian Province in Spain. Life is rich, according to Allyson, but the pocket is empty and needed time to focus on her writing. It is very easy to get distracted when you see so many beautiful places while on the road, she admitted.
The last twelve months have seen three new nonfiction books; all helping authors write, publish and promote their books, thirteen short sexy reads penned as Cyra May, three new Sweet Christmas stories (all to be published before December 2018); and a Holiday Hunks book which will be included in an anthology with other author.
Candy Apple Pink, a brand new short story, is also to be included in the ‘Pink’ anthology 2018, which raises fund for Breast Cancer Research.
Living in Spain is great. Of course being locked in a room and chained to a desk, did not help top up her sun tan, but at least Allyson was very productive.

Mistletoe by Emily Mims @EmilyMimsAuthor #RLFblog #contemporary #romanceWelcome Emily Mims, author of Mistletoe, a new contemporary Christmas romance.
Why did you write this book?
I love Christmas stories and enjoy reading them year-round. Tanner and Caitlyn both appeared in earlier installments of the Smoky Blue series and cried out for a story of their own.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romance and romantic suspense
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Eve Dallas, without a doubt! She’s the lead in J.D. Robb’s ‘In Death’ series.
What are you working on at the moment?
I just finished ‘Violet’, the sequel to ‘Mistletoe, and will begin plotting a novella to fit between ‘Violet’ and ‘Amethyst’.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
‘Violet’ will be out sometime in the spring. There will probably be a novella giving Lexi Barstow and Collins Wentworth their long-awaited happily ever after before I write ‘Amethyst’, which was supposed to be the last book in the Smoky Blue series.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre Contemporary romance with a Christmas theme
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): spicy
Aspiring songwriter Caitlyn Murphy is tired of sister’s hand-me-downs. From toys and bicycles to men, it seemed like everything in Caitlyn’s life first belonged to her late sister. Roped into doing Christmas for motherless nieces, and entering into a pretend romance with their dangerously attractive father, Caitlyn soon finds herself falling in love with the girls, and the enigmatic Tanner Dyson. She resists the temptation and Tanner’s insistence that they make their pretend relationship real. She wants her own family, not the one her sister had first.
She Always Wanted
Tanner Dyson doesn’t get why he is so attracted to his overweight, opinionated sister-in-law. She wants love and the whole romance thing, emotions that died with his late wife. He wants a woman who is nice to have around, and he can’t understand why that isn’t that enough for Caitlyn. Worried their pretend relationship will wither and die come the new year, Tanner is surprised to find the magic of the holiday season gives them the gift of a new love neither expected, but both need.
