Fiction Furbaby: Meet Charlie from Running Haunted by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss @RobsRescues #Ghost #RLFblog #PetsEffrosyni Moschoudi, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We support all furbabies, real life or fictional. We want to know all about your Fiction Furbaby, but first, please tell us about Running Haunted — and the ghost.

Running Haunted by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre paranormal romantic comedy (with a ghost!)

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Kelly ran a marathon… and wound up running a house. With a ghost in it.

Kelly Mellios is a stunning, athletic woman, who has learned–the hard way–to value herself. Having just finished her first marathon in the alluring Greek town of Nafplio, she bumps into Alex, a gorgeous widower with three underage children, who is desperately looking for a housekeeper.

The timing seems perfect, seeing that Kelly aches to start a new life, and Nafplio seems like the ideal place to settle down. She accepts the position on the spot, but little does she know that Alex’s house has an extra inhabitant that not even the family knows about…

The house is haunted by Alex’s late wife, who has unfinished business to tend to. By using the family pet, a quirky pug named Charlie, the ghost is able to communicate with Kelly and asks her for help. She claims she wants to ensure her loved ones are happy before she departs, but offers very little information about her plans.

Kelly freaks out at first, but gradually finds herself itching to help. It is evident there’s room for improvement in this family… Plus, her growing attraction towards Alex is overpowering.

Will Kelly do as the ghost bids? How will it affect her? And just how strange is this pug?

“Another charming book from Effrosyni. Read it, and you’ll be transported to Greece & never look at a dog the same way again!” ~Just Me.Mo, Amazon UK reviewer

“A fast-paced original story with attention to detail and engaging dialog. A heartfelt emotional read, with family love, romance and a lovable ghost. I highly recommend it.” ~Sheri Wilkinson, Amazon US reviewer

Meet Charlie (not the ghost) from Running Haunted

Full name: Charlie
Nickname: None
Gender: Male
Species: Pug
Physical description: Young, agile, playful, but quirky. Known to freeze occasionally, eyes glazing over, when his deceased Mommy speaks to him…
Relationship to main character: Kelly is hired to run the house Charlie lives in.

Relationship to the villain/antagonist: The antagonist, Stella, lives next door. She doesn’t care for dogs!

Where this furbaby came from: Charlie has been with the family since he was a baby.

What inspired you to create this character?

I wanted Lauren, the spirit in the story, to have some kind of medium at her disposal so she can communicate with Kelly. When I thought that her beloved dog (from when she was alive in the house) could play that part, I quickly decided on a pug, because I wanted the dog to be both goofy and quirky. Pugs have such unique faces that could easily be imagined by the reader as cute and hilarious when needed, plus, they’re great with children too. It was an easy choice!

What does the main character think about this furbaby?

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Charlie from Running Haunted by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss @RobsRescues #Ghost #RLFblog #PetsAt first, Kelly is cautious because Charlie barks at her and generally is difficult to handle seeing that he has never been walked or properly trained. Soon, though, the two become inseparable, especially since the pug proves very effective in helping her communicate with the ghost spirit that haunts the house!

How do other characters react to or interact with this furbaby?

Alex, Kelly’s boss and love interest, has a soft spot for Charlie because his deceased wife used to adore him from when he was a puppy. His three underage boys also love Charlie, and he makes everyone laugh with his antics. The youngest of the boys, Tommy, has a special bond with the dog. The two of them are always together in the house, and even at night, Charlie never leaves the boy’s bedroom. Secretly from the others, the pug brings him fashion jewelry items that belonged to Tommy’s mother, and the boy puts them on the pug when they play together in his room.

What does this furbaby add to the story?

Charlie is haunted by the spirit of Lauren and his character is key for the spirit’s communication with the heroine, Kelly. Kelly is able to hear the spirit’s voice and even see her face in the mirror sometimes, but only when the pug is around! That’s why she likes to keep the dog close to her. As the story unfolds, Kelly becomes determined to help everyone with their individual problems by following the spirit’s advice to the letter. And this could never be possible without good old Charlie tagging along!

What about this furbaby will readers like, and why?

His goofiness, his playfulness, and his occasional naughtiness. In one scene, he even gives Kelly a little bite but he has a good reason! I also think the readers will love Charlie’s fondness for Kelly, which grows as the story progresses, reflecting the gradual strengthening of the bond of friendship between Kelly and the ghost.

Please share an interesting fact or tidbit about this furbaby.

Since Lauren died, Charlie doesn’t let anyone sit at the head of the dining table. He growls and barks whenever someone makes a move to sit on it. When Lauren was alive, she used to sit there holding Charlie in her lap as she ate her meals with the family…

Describe a humorous incident involving the animal character.

During the early days of Kelly’s presence in the house, she was carrying the washing in the laundry basket one morning to take it outside and hang the clothes on the line. Charlie followed her to the front gate and started barking loudly and jumping about. When she opened the door, house keys in hand, he caused a fuss trying to follow her outside and as she tried to stop him, the keys slipped off her hand. Quick as a flash, and presumably thinking this was a game, Charlie took the keys and bolted indoors. With Kelly standing outside at the time, the door slammed shut out of the blue, leaving her locked out and feeling quite miserable for a while (until a kindly neighbor came to the rescue!)

About Loulou

Which, if any of the pets in your writing are modeled after your own pets? In what way?

I used to be a dog person and thus wound up featuring only dogs in my novels so far. That changed last year when I saved a female young cat from the street which I named Loulou (short for ‘louloudi’, which is Greek for ‘flower’). She’s such a gentle soul, all paws and not a claw in sight when I interact with her, and she made me a cat person in no time. This means I will inevitably start featuring her in many ways in my future heroines’ lives.

What do your pets do when you are writing?

Loulou loves to doze off, always in the warmest/sunniest spots, naturally. She had a litter of four kittens three months ago, and I found loving homes for the three, keeping the fourth one as I fell in love with it. So now I have two cats and the little one (haven’t named it yet!) keeps Loulou entertained and busy all day. Loulou trains her baby in big and small ways every day, and they also wrestle a lot for fun. Sometimes, I can hear Loulou’s high-pitched protestations as I work, because the kitten likes to bite her ear and won’t let go. They’re both very playful seeing that Loulou is still very young herself – not even one year old yet, from what I can gather.

What’s the most unusual pet you ever had?

The most unusual pet I’ve ever had was a hamster, Romeo, who was very cuddly. I am sorry to say he passed away after just a few months of having him, quite suddenly too, and it was most upsetting. It put me right off getting another hamster, otherwise I’d definitely get another. I loved to place him flat on my outstretched palm and stroke his back as I watched TV on the sofa in the evenings. He would always fall asleep in no time, back legs stretched out hanging over the sides of my hand, and snoring loudly. He made me laugh so much, bless his little soul, and I still laugh when I think of the happy times. I always found the sight of him having a boiled pea absolutely delightful for some reason (I boiled a lot of peas at the time because of that, LOL)

Where did you find your pet?

My cat Loulou showed up in my garden one day and decided to stay. Later, I found out she had been born in the garden of a house nearby. At first, she was timid and very fearful. After feeding her a couple times, she let me touch her and pet her, and she never left the house ever since. She’s very vocal, which is so much fun, and we have the most hilarious conversations.

What do you feed your pet?

Kibble, and cat treats for extra vitamins. Occasionally, a tin of cat food, or leftovers that are safe for her to eat.

Describe a toy or favorite item your pet loves.

Loulou has no favorite item. All she seems to do whenever I see her is seek my hand. She’ll look up and meow, then sway her head from side to side until I pet her on the top of her head. It’s hilarious. Neediest cat in the world, and a little loopy, but I certainly don’t mind. I love her to bits! J

Shout out to CARE-Corfu Animal Rescue Establishment

The charity started in 2003 when 8 puppies were found close to death in a dustbin. All were nursed back to health and subsequently, literally thousands of animals have been re-homed either in Greece, Germany, Austria and the UK.
CARE presently has a small shelter near Sidari, situated in the north of the Greek island of Corfu. With limited space and facilities, this means we sadly cannot take in all the reported strays but CARE has a mobile unit and along with groups of volunteers, CARE has set up feeding stations and the sterilization of these animals wherever possible.

The Raven Witch of Corfu by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss #RLFblog #NewRelease #paranormalromanceEffrosyni Moschoudi, 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 Raven Witch of Corfu by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre paranormal romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
A terrible evil lurks in the mountain…
Lizzie arrives on the idyllic Greek island of Corfu but far from feeling excited, her heart is heavy. She is here to claim back her twin brother who was kidnapped twenty years earlier on her previous visit. In a cave. By an evil witch.
When Lizzie sees her brother again, she receives the shock of her life. The witch has tricked her… As if this weren’t enough, Stamatis, a handsome local, steals her heart to complicate her life even further…
Why did you write this book?
I write books set on Corfu because I am passionate about the island, and especially the south east coast where I have family roots. As a youngster, I used to spend three-month summer holidays there with my grandparents. I was inspired to write this specific story by the enchanting beauty of the bright green mountains that dominate the skyline there. In case you wonder what they look like, you only have to look at the book cover…It depicts the actual vista in the village of Messonghi where the book is set! It was spooky how my graphic designer picked it among thousands of Corfu images online. I mean, what are the chances? (*chortles*)
What is your favorite genre to read?
Paranormal romance, anything with ghosts or angels in particular.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Froddo from The Lord of the Rings because despite being small and loving the comfort of his quiet life, he left it all behind and proved to be incredibly courageous in his efforts to protect all that he loves. His story is truly inspiring and reminds us that in the face of hardship we are all called upon to show our true metal. He was in the company of men a lot taller and bigger than him but proved to be the true ‘giant’ among them.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently writing the first draft of my new paranormal romance. It’s set in Nafplio, a historical town of Greece in the Peloponnese, and features a haunted house. It’s not scary though, and it’s actually a rom com; a moving family tale as well as a romance.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Other than the aforementioned book, I’m also working on a translation into Greek of one of my published novels. Past experience taught me not to take on too much at the same time, so these two projects will do for now.

The Ebb is a feel good, summer holiday romance. Even though it’s the first book in a series, it has a satisfactory ending and can be enjoyed as a standalone read.

Know the Heroine from The Ebb

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Sofia loves to daydream or to write poetry so she’s likely to do one of the two. Or even both.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
A cheese pastry. It’s one of the most popular go-to snacks for students in Athens such as herself.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
She works on a sports pier on the beach in Corfu during the summer so wears her swimsuit all day long. In the evenings, she wears shorts or mini skirts and flimsy cotton t-shirts as it’s too hot and humid to wear anything else.
Does she know how to fix things?
Goodness, no! These things are done only by men in her Greek world of the 1980s…
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
When things go bad, Sofia tends to get upset and cry. Not because she’s weak but because she’s grown too fed up to handle her inner misery by now. Her parents are overprotective, and her father, especially, is very strict and expects her to be perfect in every way. The last time she got in trouble with her dad was when she had some fun going out for a drink with her cousins but neglected to drop by her uncle Yannis’s restaurant on her way home like she was supposed to. In her defense, though, Uncle Yannis gives her the creeps…
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Sofia is sweet and gentle with children. Her mother and grandmother are both affectionate, nurturing women who show her love generously, so she acts the same towards the young ones. Sofia actually likes the shy children the most, as they remind her of her at that age. She loves to make them laugh.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Sofia stretches like a cat and yawns a lot in bed, snoozing for a good while before getting up. She dresses quickly in casual attire and after a cup of tea and some buttered toast she’s ready to face the day. When she rushes to catch the bus to Athens for her studies, she often skips breakfast and grabs a cheese pastry on her way to University.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
Sofia acts nonchalant with everyone, and has become masterful over time at hiding her true feelings and wishes. She has many secrets because she was raised by overprotective parents and is plagued by village gossip in Corfu as well where she spends her summer holidays with her grandparents. The only person who knows all her secrets is her best friend Loula. Together, they visited a clairvoyant who told Sofia that Danny, the English tourist she’s fallen for, is someone she loved in a previous life. She also helped her make some sense of the grieving woman that haunts her dreams, dictating poems to her.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Sofia doesn’t hire workers and lets her parents or grandparents deal with these things. She never does this sort of thing as everyone still treats her like a minor despite her being twenty years old. Even when she tries to get a job for the first time (in a sports pier in Corfu during the summer of 1987), she has to get her father’s permission first!
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Pierced earrings are okay. Sofia got her ears pierced as a teen which is very common in Greece and was deemed acceptable by her family. Anything else would be unheard of. Her family would have a fit, but she wouldn’t want to have any tattoos or piercings anyway. In her world, that’s a very uncommon thing to see.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Sofia doesn’t have a driver’s license so she takes buses to visit the Athens university. For her annual visit to the island of Corfu, she takes a coach, then a ferry across from the mainland.
Recycle or toss?
Recycling isn’t a widespread practice in the 1980s in Greece. So, the only recycling Sofia does is that of printed paper. She uses the blank side for noting stuff down. Oh. And she donates her old clothes to the local church or to poor families in her neighborhood.
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Taken as Theirs by Kryssie Fortune

As a breeder–one of the few fertile women left in a ruined, plague-ravaged world–Cassie would fetch a handsome price at auction, and selling her to the highest bidder was exactly what her captors had in mind… until two fearsome beasts decided to take her for themselves.
Eli and Dane have chosen Cassie for their mate, and when she makes a foolish attempt at escape she quickly ends up tearfully promising obedience as her bare bottom is soundly and shamefully punished. Her body’s response to their stern dominance cannot be denied, however, and it isn’t long before she is screaming out her intense, helpless pleasure as she is roughly and thoroughly claimed. But will Eli and Dane’s pack accept a human girl or will Cassie be an outsider forever?

Lizzie is not your average tourist. She may have just arrived on the idyllic Greek island of Corfu, but her mind is not on having a good time.

When Lizzie sees her brother again, she receives the shock of her life. The witch has tricked her… As if this weren’t enough, Stamatis, a handsome local, steals her heart to complicate her life even further… “It’s a step up from Mills and Boon – much more Mary Stewart than Barbara Cartland, with a bit of Gothic horror and Harry Potter-esque magic in the mix.

Lies and Solace by Jana RichardsLies and Solace by Jana Richards #FreeBookFriday #Read

Harper Lindquist is convinced she’s found the answer to her financial prayers. Unless she pours cash into crumbling Solace Lake Lodge, she’ll lose her family’s legacy. Her would-be savior arrives in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard and she’s determined to prove to her reluctant, and trapped, financier the lodge is a sound investment. But Harper isn’t completely honest with him. And she has no idea the lake is hiding secrets of its own.
Ethan James is a liar, but his money is very real. He isn’t convinced a broken-down inn is a smart investment opportunity. But the more he understands Harper’s dreams and desires, the more he wants to be the man to make them come true. The trauma in both their pasts means neither can fully trust the other. They must find the courage to love, to trust, and to accept, or yesterday’s sorrows will keep them apart.
She can’t handle one more lie. He can’t tell the truth.
