Know Cassandra Hudson from The Man of Her Dreams by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #PNR #mysteryDee S Knight, 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.

The Man of Her Dreams by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Cassandra Hudson has traveled across country to a small town in South Carolina to find a tall man with deep, blue eyes that she’s only met in her dreams. She’s desperate to solve a mystery that involves her husband who has been dead for over two years. Trouble is, her dream man wants to solve the mysteries of her body more than help her find a solution to her problem.
When Dan Morgan stops to help a beautiful woman on the side of the road outside his hometown, he doesn’t realize that she will drag him into the world of the paranormal in an effort to find out what happened to her husband and the half million dollars he was accused of stealing. What he does realize is the strong attraction he feels for her, despite his distrust of anything mystical. And the undeniable power she holds over him using her sexy body as a lure.
Love will make it both easier and harder for them to find the answers they need.

Know the Heroine from The Man of Her Dreams

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Cassandra’s profession is creative and artistic—she is a renowned painter and fabric artist. She’s rarely bored because her mind is always teeming with ideas of what to do next. But she loves reading so when boredom does strike, she can pick up a good book. During the day, she would take a walk—she lives in beautiful San Francisco so walking refreshes the mind as well as inspired new ideas.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Pie. She loves a well-made pie and she indulges in peach pie on her first night in South Carolina.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Loose, comfortable. When she’s working she needs to be able to move freely, so nothing tight or restrictive.
Does she know how to fix things?
Not really. She can change a lightbulb. As a widow she doesn’t have a man around to “fix” things. But her best friend lives next door and her husband is willing and happy to help with things Cassandra can’t handle.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to persuade Dan Morgan to help her solve the mystery of her dreams. She’s been dreaming about Dan—a man she doesn’t know—for months. She knows he’s at the heart of why and how her husband died. But… Dan is a former policeman and a realist. He has no use for psychics or mumbo jumbo. She approached him in the worst way and ensured that he wouldn’t help.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Cassandra loves children but she isn’t around them very much. She stands back and takes time to know them. She’s not one of those women who steps forward to hold the new baby first.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Cassandra has a very even temperament. She wakes up easily and doesn’t get off kilter often.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
Fame and the accompanying fortune is nice but it’s not what motivates her. Therefore, she is very down to earth and easy to be with and talk to. With Dan she might be a little too nice and accommodating, but that is something she has to figure out for herself.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Sure. She’s not a control freak. But she does have pretty exacting standards, so that doesn’t mean that she won’t examine the task, whatever it is, when it’s finished.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Pierced earrings. She uses accessories when she dresses to go out but not on a daily basis.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
In San Francisco, public transport whenever possible. But she drove her car across country in her search for the man of her dreams!
Recycle or toss?
Recycle, definitely! It’s for the good of the planet, and why waste things that can be reused?
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Storm Crazy, Destiny Paramortals #1 by Livia Quinn

Welcome to Destiny, home to the Paramortals since…well, forever…where human neighbors and their new sheriff live alongside shifters, dragons, vampires and a family of djinn.
Just don’t tell the humans.
To former Navy pilot-turned-sheriff Jack Lang, the town of Destiny seemed the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But his investigation into a perplexing death shatters the alleged calm and threatens the tranquil home life he hoped to provide for his daughter. Especially, when he catches his mail lady in the act of stealing an antique vase after stepping over said body. Soon, Jack discovers Tempest Pomeroy is an outright trouble magnet who never fails to test the limits of his patience or the law.
For most of her life, Tempe’s denied her heritage, but as the sheriff’s investigation veers off into the bizarre and intrudes into the existence of the Paramortals, danger heads toward them like an F5 tornado… Look out, Tempest’s about to go Storm Crazy.
A human sheriff, a storm witch, and the quirky, supernatural town of Destiny. What could go wrong?

Russian Pride by Holly Bargo

Genre Contemporary Mafia Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Rescued from domestic abuse, Bratva princess Inessa recuperates from the latest beating in the home of Giovanni Maglione, the mafia captain of Cleveland. Learning that her husband double-crossed the Chinese triad, and they want their pound of flesh–and they’re happy to take it out of Inessa–her parents ask Giovanni to marry their newly widowed daughter. The Chinese triad will be looking for a Russian mobster’s wife, not the wife of an Italian mobster. Inessa agrees to this marriage of convenience which, of course, isn’t so convenient. The ruse fails, which forces Giovanni into a violent and bloody mob war, because he protects what’s his… and Inessa is most definitely his.

Holly Bargo Social Media

Holly Bargo never outgrew a love of fairy tales, legends, and myths. Or horses. However, one foot must remain firmly planted in the real world which is where Holly makes her living as a freelance writer and editor. She and her husband have two grown children and live on a southwest Ohio hobby farm with a menagerie indoor and outdoor animals.
When she’s not working on other people’s documents or reading, Holly finds time to transfer the voices in her head to paper … er … computer. If she doesn’t, there’s a definite possibility her mind will explode.
And for those who might wonder from where the pseudonym of Holly Bargo came, it’s quite simple really. Horses. Namely an elegant and temperamental Appaloosa mare who has long since crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is fondly remembered for guarding toddler children and crushing a brand new pager.
But that’s another story.

Her Bluegrass Beau by Carol Preflatish

Genre: contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Thank you for hosting me today, Kayelle.
Karri Taylor needed to get out of California and away from her ex-boyfriend. She couldn’t think of a better time than now to visit the Kentucky farm she inherited from her great-aunt.
Jake Duncan is the definition of a perfect southern gentleman and it doesn’t take long for Karri take an interest. From helping him nurse his sick horse back to health to meeting the neighbors, she develops an affection for both Jake and the many attributes of the Bluegrass State.
Her plan was to sell the farm and head back home. But, when a blizzard hits, the plan changes. She’s stranded at the farmhouse until Jake comes to the rescue. With the lack of enough food and discovering the generator stolen, the only thing she can do is accept Jake’s offer to stay with him until power is restored.
During her time with Jake, she learns that a big company is trying to buy all the farms in the area, against the wishes of the neighbors. She’s torn between selling her farm and go back home where she owns a business, or stay in Kentucky and start all over.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
As an adult, it’s fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and biscuits with butter. Believe it or not, as a child I loved salmon patties, fried potatoes, and cream corn. I have to say that my mother made the best fried potatoes.
Describe the perfect vacation.
A week at a cabin in the mountains is my perfect vacation. My husband and I usually do that at least once or twice a year. My favorite thing is to drink my morning coffee on the porch and enjoy the sounds and smells of the mountains.
What are your hobbies?
I love to go camping. We graduated up from a tent and bought a camper. I’m looking forward to trying it out this summer. During the winter, I love to watch NFL football. I also love to watch old movies, which makes me sit on the couch way too much. I also love photography.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I love to read crime mysteries. I love James Patterson and Robert B. Parker books, but I’m always looking for new mystery authors to read.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
I mostly do research online and read web sites from locations that I want to use in my book. I also use sites to research names and sometimes crimes. I do have a couple books on forensics and on weapons that I refer to often during my writing.
