Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #fantasy #magic #PNRDee 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 hero, but first, tell us Your Desire.

Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Your Desire. A mysterious shop appears in town for one reason: to bring the spice of passion and the thrill of love to one special person. Magic is in more than the item purchased—it’s in the heart of the buyer, often hidden, usually surprising. And after enchantment takes hold? The store fades from sight and memory, only to reappear somewhere else. Maybe in your town….

The Artist and the Director
Derica Meadows, the conservative Director of Accounting at a large San Francisco firm, sees the most beautiful dress imaginable in a shop window. So different from her usual genderless pant suits, she’s swept into acquiring the gown for a formal business affair the next night. But a funny thing happens on the way to her party, in the form of a compelling man and a photo shoot. Suddenly, the normally logical Derica finds herself swimming in a sea of sexual freedom she’d never before considered. The hunk of a artist can satisfy her fantasies, but what will happen to her climb up the corporate ladder in the process? And to her heart?

Awards Night
Allison Hayes has always tried to be all things to all people. Need anything done? Call Allison. It seems no one considers that Allison might have needs, too. When she goes home one night to find a man injured in her pasture, she resigns herself to helping out yet again. However, it isn’t long before she finds the roles reversed, as the mysterious man fulfills her deepest desires. By morning, Allison knows that in being the Good Samaritan this time, she’s gotten more than she gave. The question is, was it passion for one night or for a lifetime of love?

Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Allison doesn’t have too much time to be bored–she works full-time as a nurse and also is one of those “go-to” people everyone seems to call on when they need a patsy…I mean good person to help out. Allison rarely says no. She gave up her dreams of traveling in order to take care of first her mother and then her father when they became ill, and now lives on her inheritance, a large farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where she raises sheep. Considering that an accident from childhood left her with a nasty limp and the fact that her body wears out quickly, her normal life takes all the energy she has. Thus, no time for boredom.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Allison enjoys food but she’s one of those people who eats to live, not lives to eat. Her weight is important because of the complications with her legs, but it wouldn’t matter. Eating is not her fun thing in life. When she does have an impulse, it’s for pizza, a treat she doesn’t have often.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Usually, she’s in a nurse’s uniform. Otherwise, she likes loose-fitting clothing that’s comfortable. She raises sheep, so she’s big on wool for the winter. She loves the feel of sheepskin slippers and coats, and has some very nice wool sweaters and slacks. For the warm (dare I say hot?) Virginia summers, she likes linen or cotton slacks and short sleeved tee shirts. She rarely wears shorts due to the scars on her legs. One thing she would never have willingly worn is the formal taffeta gown she bought for her high school reunion. Not only were the colors horrid, but the stupid thing made a noise with each step she took. Finding the dress must have been fate, though, because of what else (or who else) she found beside a crashed car in her front yard later that night!

Does she know how to fix things?

Allison is fairly independent and can take care of light repairs around the house, but luckily for her, she has her uncle and cousin living on the next farm and they will usually help with anything she can’t handle.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

She tried to say no, that she would not help with this high school reunion. She came up with excuse after excuse but could not talk herself out of the guilt if she left her best friend high and dry without help. So, she gave in–not all that gracefully. Then she had went shopping and did another thing badly–find a dress for the costumed vintage event, something reminiscent of the 1950s. And what a horrible dress she ended up with! Truly, it was the worst possible dress to everyone except one special person. For him, it turned out to be a miracle. Or maybe a piece of magic!

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Allison enjoys children, though she doesn’t find herself around kids she doesn’t know all that often. When she does, she forgets that she limps until the honesty of children’s questions remind her. Still, she doesn’t mind their questions as much as their parents’ embarrassment. She would love to have her own kids someday. Living in her small town doesn’t seem to present many opportunities. Until fate drops a guy right into her pasture–after tossing him through her fence and against one of her huge oak trees!

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Truthfully, she’d always appreciate more sleep, but her work ethic doesn’t allow her to sleep beyond the alarm. By the time she’s showered and had her first dose of caffeine, she’s ready to meet the day.

Can she use chopsticks?

No. When she has Chinese food she’s firmly in the “Fork, please,” set.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Yes, and lots of it. Black, please.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Allison barely has a mobile phone, much less apps. I’m sure she wonders what an app is.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

She doesn’t have pierced ears. When she wears earrings–which she usually does not to work–she wears something close to the ear. No chandeliers because they’re distracting. She has a few nice pairs of gemstone studs.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

No tattoos, no piercings, no perfumes. Just skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She has a car, and needs it, living on the farm. Public transportation is pretty much out of the question even when she’s in town.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Know the Heroine from The Director and the Artist in Your Desire

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Derica works hard and when she has free time she uses it to unwind from her stressful job. If she’s bored, she’ll draw a hot bath, add some good bath scent and relax—maybe with a book and glass of wine.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

She watches her figure stringently, so if she’s able to impulse eat, it would eb with fast food. A burger or chili dog.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

She’s very professional, and even in business affairs, she’s aware that her shape draws the attention of many of the men she works with. She has a wide selection of black pant suits that she accessorizes with beautiful scarves. She wears very conservative but feminine blouses under the jackets. One she meets Kailen, her life (and her wardrobe) is turned upside down. When he chooses her clothing, it’s anything but professional or black.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s a modern woman who lies alone, so she’s gained quite a few skills around the house.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

There isn’t much that Derica does badly. She’s a woman who is about to be named partner in her firm, and she’s young, so if she did things badly she wouldn’t have the position she does. But she did try to set up her roommate in college once. Her friend and blind date hated the sight of each other, making her promise never to try to matchmake again.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She doesn’t dislike children, but she’s not drawn to them. Basically, she tries to avoid them, although she can interact with them if she has to.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Ready to go. Up with the alarm first goes off and goes from 0 to 60 in a few seconds.

Can she use chopsticks?

Of course. She interacts with international clients and tries to respect their cultures.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee, black, please. If you need caffeine ,no need to dilute it.

What apps would she have on her phone?

The stock exchanges, business magazines, the WSJ online.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

She has pierced ears and wears studs, nothing dangly.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Strictly unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She has a car but in San Francisco it’s more a hindrance than a joy, so she mostly uses public transit.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Know the Hero from The Director and the Artist in Your Desire

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Goes out with his brother and whoever else is around and hit the clubs. But he’s rarely bored because there is always something to paint, and painting is his passion.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

It seems someone in his loft has always brought in pizza, and in a pinch, pizza will always do the job of waylaying hunger. If he’s out, a quick burger is good. He’s not one for the usual snack foods.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Jeans and tee shirts—anything he doesn’t have to worry about getting paint on. When he goes out, he does have “good” jeans, and even slacks.

Does he know how to fix things?

He keeps a small toolbox around for very minor repairs. But can he rebuild a car engine or replumb a bathroom? No. He can change out a washer in the bathroom faucet or wire a lamp (thank you, YouTube!), but nothing too complex.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

He took a job as a commercial graphic artist in order to fit into a woman’s lifestyle. He hated every minute and it affected his relationship. Neither lasted.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

Steven—or Kailen, the name he uses for his modeling and art—loves kids. When he and the current woman in his life, Derica, go to one of her bosses’ events, he spends more time out on the lawn with the children than he does with the men.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Very loving. He wakes up ready to devote attention to his lady, and then he’s ready for the day. He’s up to make breakfast and then dash out to whatever he has lined up.

Can he use chopsticks?

He never learned. It doesn’t bother him to use a fork.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

He does. He drinks it black,

What apps would he have on his phone?

Steven is a go-getter. He’s a model, a courier, and (his passion), an artist. He has an app for both his modeling agency and the courier company. Other than those, his phone is strictly for making and receiving calls or texts.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

A diamond stud in one ear. No tattoos. At first, he didn’t get a tat because he was going into the corporate world and he figured why get something just to have to keep it covered. And then…he didn’t feel the need.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Public transportation. There’s no need for a car in San Francisco—public transport is too good.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle

Introducing Jeffrey from Only a Good Man Will Do, by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #Romance #AltReadLet’s meet Jeffrey from Only a Good Man Will Do, an erotic romance, by Dee S Knight. 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.

Only a Good Man Will Do by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Seriously ambitious man seeks woman to encourage his goals, support his (hopeful) position as Headmaster of Westover Academy, and be purer than Caesar’s wife. Good luck with that!

Daniel Goodman is a man on a mission. He aims to become headmaster of Westover Academy. For that he needs a particular, special woman to help him set high standards. Into his cut and dried life of moral and upright behavior, comes Eve Star, formerly one of Europe’s foremost exotic dancers. Her life is anything but cut and dried, black and white. Daniel is drawn to her like a kid to chocolate. Nothing good can come of this attraction. Or can it? He is after all, a good man.

Introducing Jeffrey Torrington

Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 7

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Boston, Massachusetts

Profession: Profession? I’m just a kid!

Ethnicity: I’m a human, American boy

What do you look like?

I’m kinda little for my age, though Mr. Goodman says I will grow someday. I have short brown hair because they make us get our hair trimmed here at school if it starts to hit our ears. In summer, with my uncle in Oklahoma, I let my hair grow and grow. It tickles. Oh… and, I have brown eyes, and… I don’t know what else. I look like a normal kid.

Who is the significant other in your life?

*giggles* Significant other? I don’t like girls much. But I guess my uncle is my significant person. After my parents died a few years ago, he’s taken care of me. And Mr. Goodman, the resident master in my dormitory. He’s cool. I like him a lot and his brother fixes cars for racing!

How do you dress?

Here at Westover Academy, we have to wear a uniform al the time. It’s dark blue pants and jacket, with a white shirt and a dark red tie. Our shoes always have to be polished. I didn’t know how to polish shoes until I came here to school last year but now I’m real good at it. When my uncle comes to visit, I get to wear jeans and tee shirts and sneakers. I wish I could live with my uncle all the time, but he’s real busy and travels a lot. If I did, I could wear sneakers and jeans all the time.

Please tell us about your education.

I’m in second grade at Westover Academy. I’m good at arithmetic but not so good at Latin. I like hearing about all those battles the Romans fought and stuff, but I’m not very good at reading it. I like science. Right now we’re studying the planets. I can pick out two in the night sky without using a telescope at all. I think I want to be a scientist when I grow up. Or maybe a cowboy on my uncle’s ranch.

Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?

*sigh* I really suck at lacrosse. I almost never get the ball in my stick, and once I ran into another player when I wasn’t looking. I like playing, though. I like to run.

What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?

In my school uniform, nothing. I’m afraid if I left anything in there and my uniform pants were cleaned, I might get into trouble for not remembering to take it out. But when I go off campus, I always have candy in my pockets.

What is your family like?

My mom and dad died when I was three or four. Then I went to live with my uncle in Oklahoma. When I started school, he tried to find the very best place for me, and I guess that’s here, Westover Academy. I miss being at home, but I love Uncle Neil and so I try to do what he wants me to. Here, I kinda think of Mr. Goodman as part of my family. Last weekend, when I was the only kid left in the dorm, he let me come to his apartment and we watched baseball and had pizza and everything. He’s like my uncle away from home.

If someone from your past showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?

My mom and dad. Truthfully, I hardly remember them, but when I lived at home Uncle Neil would tell me stories about them, and about him and my dad when they were growing up on the ranch Uncle Neil owns now. I don’t really remember them, but I miss them.

Know the Heroine from Burning Bridges by Dee S Knight writing as Anne Krist @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romance #secondchance #vietnamwar #NavyWelcome Anne Krist (aka Dee S Knight). Happy to have you on Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Burning Bridges by Dee S Knight writing as Anne Krist

Genre Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Consider the role of strangers in our lives. An unknown postman in Virginia hides a bag of mail in his shed one day. His simple action sets in motion untold consequences for many others–strangers–all over the country. How many bridges were burned in that forgotten mail pouch?

Sara Richards’s world is rocked when three love letters from 1970 are delivered decades late. The letters were written by Paul Steinert, a young sailor who took her innocence with whispered words of love and promises of forever before leaving for Vietnam. Sara is left behind, broken hearted and secretly pregnant, yearning for letters she never received.

Then he died.

Now, years later, she discovers the betrayal wasn’t Paul’s, when her mother confesses to a sin that changed their lives forever. How can Sara reveal to Paul’s parents that they have a granddaughter they’ve missed the chance to know? Even worse, how will she find the words to tell her daughter that she’s lived her life in the shadow of a lie?

Picking her way through the minefields of distrust and betrayal, Sara finds that putting her life together again without burning any bridges will be the hardest thing she’s ever done.

Know the Heroine from Burning Bridges

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

If it’s during the week, she hops in her car and drives to Charleston to take her daughter to a surprise lunch. If it’s not day time, she bakes and then takes the goodies to her mother’s house. Or she reads. But as a business owner, she doesn’t often have boring moments.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Pizza. She doesn’t eat it often because she likes to keep her weight in check, something she’s found to be harder the older she gets. And put pizza in front of Sara…? She’ll eat the whole pie!

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Sara lives in Beaufort, SC, where the winters are mild and the summers are hot, so she dresses comfortably. Usually that means loose clothes, and generally cotton. At work she’ll wear a top over slacks or a skirt, or a dress, with sandals or pumps. At home, she’s in shorts and tee shirt, or cargo pants. She wears hats because every Southern woman knows not to expose her complexion to the sun!

Does she know how to fix things?

Oh yes! She moved to South Carolina at seventeen, when she told her parents she was pregnant. She moved in with her spinster Aunt Barbara, who taught her that it was good to have a man to rely on if things needed fixing, but better to rely on yourself. Sara learned her lesson well. Before her dad died he helped her with problems around the house, because he wouldn’t take “No,” for an answer. Sometimes her friend and occasional lover, Marine Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Abrams, helps out now because when a gentleman wants to help, a lady must consider allowing him.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Sara adopted a lie about her background when she went to South Carolina to have her daughter. The lie grew to the point that even she believed it. But as we all know, lies are usually found out at some point, and when this one is revealed, Sara realizes that she’s hurt everyone she knows–and maybe destroyed the person she loves most in the world.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Sara loves children. She never found a man to love well enough to marry, so she never had another child, but she likes kids and being with them.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s one of those hard to deal with people who enjoys getting up each morning. She loves her town and her job and her house and… Suddenly bluebirds are singing in the trees! Disgusting, really.

Can she use chopsticks?

Yes. She’s lived near a Marine base for many years and is exposed to many customs from around the world. But she doesn’t see the point. Food doesn’t taste any better with chopsticks than with a fork.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee is a necessity, of course, and she drinks it black. However, like most people in the south, sweet tea is really the drink of choice except for the morning.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Sara isn’t one for apps. She likes something relaxing like solitaire or a brain-teaser app that stretches her mind, but other than that she has Google and a news app. That’s it.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced. And since she’s good friends with local artisans, she has a spectacular earring collection.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned. Matthew has a tattoo of the Marine emblem, but she doesn’t find tattoos attractive, so she wouldn’t be drawn to a man with sleeves or too many drawings.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She’s able to walk or bicycle to work, and she lives close enough to town to shop without a car, so she doesn’t drive that much, or take public transportation.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Dee S Knight writing as Anne Krist Social Media

A few years ago, Dee S Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex. That’s how Dee spends her days. Her nights? Well, she’s lucky that her dream man, childhood sweetheart, and long-time hubby are all the same guy, and nights are their secret.
After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories. All three of her personas are found on the Nomad Authors website. Also, once a month, look for Dee’s Charity Sunday blog posts, where your comment can support a selected charity.
