When the Right One Comes Along by Livia Quinn

Genre Small town military romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Love happens when you least expect it, even when it’s the last thing you’re looking for.
Former Army Ranger, Ridge Romano lost his brother John to the war, but not on the battlefield. After returning home with PTSD and, like so many soldiers, experiencing the loss of his identity and purpose, he committed suicide leaving behind a grieving wife and child. Early on, Ridge was recruited by the Army for his work in bionics eventually putting them on the forefront of drone technology. Now, the CEO of MedBionics, Ridge is on a mission to ensure John’s death was not in vain. He’s in DC meeting with Congress about an revolutionary veterans’ project. With a “yes” vote on the big bill, his Consortium, MiliCare, will take over the care of his fellow soldiers and their families. But an impulsive act of folly and one night with one very special woman – complete with photographs – put the contract and his dreams in danger.
At the DC convention, photographer and former fashion model, Buffy Calloway finds the “Face” of her new franchise, the Calloway Studio and Casting agency, which will provide models, marketing and photography to designers and movie studios. The tall, dark and intense man she finds is everything she’s been looking for. He’s “the one” but after discovering his noble goals, there seems to be no path to a meeting of the minds (or their hearts).
Can two very different people whose goals are at odds find a way to have it all?
How long have you been writing?Do It Write: Where Livia Quinn writes @liviiaquinn #RLFblog #MilitaryRomance
I’ve had a pen in my hand since I was a kid waiting for a story to put on paper but didn’t start writing fiction toward publication until the summer of Katrina, the hurricane that nit the gulf coast in 2005.
What was your first published book?
Fire in my Blood in 2012 which has since been revised and renamed Undone.
Tell us about your writing space or home office.
A new neighbor moved in and offered me the portable building that was used as a “camp”. It sits by the bayou on the hill, decorated with my favorite things, my story boards, sculptures a friend made me. It’s not fancy but quiet and quaint and the scenery is soothing. I love it. This is my desk I recently fancied up to sooth my psyche a bit.
If money was no object, what would your home office look like?
Something like one of the gorgeous libraries with walls of books and intricately painted ceilings I saw in England last year that made me want to sit in them and write.
What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?
My notebook and an Inkjoy pen, my Olympus recorder and Dragon Dictate. I handwrite the new scenes in the tub, record them onto the recorder, transcribe and copy into Scrivener. (That’s the VERY rough draft.)
What’s the last book about writing that you read?
Novel Shortcuts by Laura Whitcomb. It’s excellent, especially about writing back cover copy as a short synopsis when beginning a new book.
Do you have an author newsletter?
Yes. I’d love to hear from readers at either my email below or you can sign up for my occasional newsletter for new release alerts.

Bringer of Chaos by Kayelle Allen

Immortal Council member Pietas, leader of the Ultra race, wants nothing to do with faithless, lying humans. After discovering humans captured and tortured his people, Pietas declares war. To him, humans deserve nothing more than conquest and elimination. They possess no honor. They lie, cheat, and sign faithless treaties. He washes his hands of them.

The Yankee Billionaire Bride by Roz Lee

Visiting the tiny town of Butte Plains, Texas to help out a friend, born and bred Yankee Scott Ramsey has no intention of falling in love, but it isn’t long before the wide open plains, and especially the meadows—Roseanne Meadows—stake a claim on his heart.

What will it take to convince Roseanne his home is where his heart is?

Roseanne Meadows knew better than to fall in love with a Yankee carpetbagger, but it’s too late now. What’s done is done, and the sooner Scott Ramsey packs up his toys and goes home to his venomous family, the better. Faced with an unexpected life-altering situation, in true Texan style, the owner of The Yellow Rose B and B will do whatever it takes to survive, even if it means leaving the only place her heart has ever called home.

Caught in Cross Seas by Sharleen Scott

Only a city girl would think her secret safe in a small town.

When bakery owner Harlie Cates escaped her abusive husband in Seattle she thought Angel Beach, Oregon was the perfect hiding place. Then Clay Masterson moved in next door. She isn’t looking for love. She doesn’t even date. And she doesn’t want a country music superstar tossing her into his spotlight. So, why can’t she stay away from him?

Clay Masterson isn’t in town for the chowder. He’s searching for his supposedly dead father, who was accused of murder in Montana, and the grapevine says he’ll find him near Angel Beach. If Clay finds him, he’ll thank him for being an exemplary father for the ten minutes he spent at it, and alert the authorities. Harlie offers to help, believing Clay’s motivation is love, not vengeance.

But Clay isn’t the only one searching for his father. Someone knows who committed the murder and knows Harlie’s secret too. He plans to clean up these problems, once and for all. Two, or maybe three, birds with one stone.
