About Joe’s Wife

Genre western romance

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

After Meg Telford’s husband dies in the war and is lauded as a hero, she can’t keep the ranch without a man to shoulder the workload. Nothing will stop her from saving Joe’s dream. The war has taken nearly all the able-bodied men—and a devilishly handsome bad boy seems her only choice.

Town pariah, Tye Hatcher has a reputation as a hell-raiser, but he’s looking to prove himself and has his own plans for her land. Meg’s proposal might be too good to be true, but he’s willing to take a chance, even if the risk is his heart.

Struggling with the rejection of the townspeople and guilt over her changing feelings for this convenient new husband, Meg’s vulnerable dreams and their hard work will be for naught unless she and Tye reveal their secrets. Neither can change the past, but is a better future within their grasp?

Read Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters by Shilpa Suraj @shilpaauthor #RLFblog #romance #ContemporaryShilpa Suraj, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters.

Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters by Shilpa Suraj

Genre: Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

She believes in love, family and…squiggles!

Alisha Rana is not your typical single desi girl. For one, she is on the wrong side of 30. For another, she is divorced. And last but definitely not least, she is still, gasp, a virgin!

Alisha doesn’t want much. But what she does want is that elusive thing all women search for – A man who gets her…but a man who gets her hot! She calls it “feeling the squiggle.”

Enter Dr. Vivaan Kapoor, cute, hot, squiggle worthy. The younger brother of her cousin’s prospective groom, he’s got the squiggle factor in spades. The only catch? He’s never been married and is years younger than Alisha. Basically, completely off-limits.

And then there is Arjun. Widowed, older than her by the right number of years and a genuinely nice guy. He’s Vivaan’s cousin and a so-called perfect match for Alisha. The problem is Alisha’s squiggle-o-meter refuses to budge for him.

What will Alisha choose? A lifetime together with the ‘right’ man or a chance at happiness with the ‘wrong’ one?

Alcohol Abuse in the Regency Era by AngelinaJameson @RegencyLady #RLFblog #HistoricalRomance #RegencyAngelina Jameson welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here!

Looking forward to reading about your research on alcohol abuse in the Regency Era, but first, please tell us about A Lady’s Addiction.

A Lady’s Addiction by Angelina Jameson

Genre Historical Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Anna, a widow battling alcohol addiction, is convinced she is worthless unless she bears a child. Devlyn, sterile after an accident, has returned to England from an assignment for the Foreign Office. Anna and Devlyn join forces to protect an innocent child from a blackmailer. Can they come to terms not only with their feelings for each other but whether they will allow society to dictate the true significance of life?

Alcohol Abuse in the Regency Era

The heroine of my book A Lady’s Addiction has a problem with alcohol. Anna used it to self-medicate, to deal with the disgusting attentions from her husband. Now a widow, Anna struggles to rid herself of her nightly ritual of drinking a bottle of wine to dull her senses.

The term alcoholism wasn’t around in the Regency era and wasn’t coined until 1852. Reformers labeled those who often drank in excess as habitual drunkards. At the time habitual drunkenness wasn’t seen as a disease. I portrayed Anna as an alcohol abuser not an alcoholic. She uses alcohol to de-stress. If she continues on this path she would most likely become an alcoholic.

Anna’s drink of choice was wine. Wine was plentiful in upper class Regency households. Wine was a gentlemanly drink. It was imported and expensive, perfect as a posh drink for the upper classes. During the years of war between France and England it was harder to get French wine. The English turned to new favorite wines from Spain, and Portugal. These wines were Madeira, Malaga, port, or sherry. The hero in my book refers to Portuguese wine in the first chapter.Alcohol Abuse in the Regency Era by AngelinaJameson @RegencyLady #RLFblog #HistoricalRomance #Regency

During the Gin Craze in 18th century London binge drinking became a huge social problem. Gin was cheap and readily available to the lower classes. The heavy consumption of alcohol continued during the Regency. In the Reminisces of Captain Gronow, the author stated: “Drinking was the fashion of the day.”

It is well known that George IV drank heavily. Did George’s excessive drinking reflect current fashion or set it? I think both. Drinking played an extremely important social role in eighteenth century England. Anyone who reads Regency historical novels has heard of gout. The high consumption of port and fortified wines led to the upper class disease of gout.

What about women drinking in the Regency era? While there are many cartoons and articles from the Regency showing excess drinking by men, it was much harder to find information about those Regency women who may have abused alcohol. Lady Caroline Lamb was known to be addicted to alcohol and laudanum near the end of her life. It is taken for granted that women of society drank to relieve the boredom and monotony of their lives. Women drank wine with their meals and drank sherry in the drawing room after dinner. It is not hard to imagine women overindulging with all the alcohol surrounding them.

The prevailing attitude seemed to be that as long as your addiction didn’t affect your social obligations you were not rebuked for it.

Bolt (Fangs and Fists 1) by Kate Hill

Genre Erotic Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

In a futuristic world ruled by demons, werewolves are enslaved to fight in gladiatorial matches for the amusement of their evil masters.

Kiara remembers what life was like living free — before she was taken by demons and bred to gladiators so that the new generations of wolves would retain their ferocity but forget their freedom. Mated to top gladiator Grit, she has a son with this surprisingly gentle lover who is also planning their escape. When Grit is killed in the arena, his close friend upholds his promise to protect Kiara and the cub.

Bolt and Kiara have loved each other from the moment they met, but they buried their feelings because she was mated to his best friend. When Grit dies, despite their guilt, Bolt and Kiara surrender to their desire for each other. Will their love be strong enough to help them win freedom from their evil masters?
