One evening, in a land far away, a wife spins a story for the amusement of her husband. Like the original tale, this contemporary Cinderella is definitely for those who love romance and a HEA. However, she adds a few touches of the erotic. For her husband, you understand.

In this tale, Charlotte dreams of her prince, James, but learns about beauty and love from her fairy godfather, Cooper. She might not lose a glass slipper, but her heart is in danger of being left behind. One thing for sure, by the time our Charlotte arrives at the ball, she’d sure like to know which man is her real Prince Charming.

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. And all three offer some of the best romance you can find!

Playing To Score by Lisabet Sarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #NewRelease #GayRomanceCasual sex morphs into something much deeper in Lisabet Sarai’s gay erotic romance Playing to Score. A Scrabble tournament seems an unlikely place to meet one’s soul mate. But then, Matt’s an unlikely sort of guy.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Playing To Score.

Playing to Score by Lisabet Sarai

Genre Gay BDSM Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): X-rated (explicit gay sex)

Matt was supposed to be just a hot hook-up. Then he turned on the charm and brought out the bondage gear.

Jason Hofstadter comes to the Four States Annual Scrabble Tournament for two reasons: to play for the trophy and to get laid. Every year since his first, he’s managed to score with one of the other guys attending. He figures that he’s hit the jackpot when he spots handsome, bookish Matt Sawyer, who’s competing at the Four States for the first time.

Shy and seemingly innocent, Matt turns out to be full of surprises. First he jumps Jason in the rest room at Starbucks. Then he reveals that he’s into BDSM and encourages Jason to top him. Finally, despite his lack of experience with tournament play, Matt ends up facing Jason across the board in the semi-final round. When Matt throws the game he should have won, Jason is forced to confront his own feelings: about winning, about casual sex, and about Matt.

Why did you write this book?

Originally, I wrote this novella for a boxed set entitled Gaymes. The publisher envisioned this as a collection of sports-themed MM romances, but honestly I have little interest in football, baseball or most other physical games. When I suggested to the editor that I could write a tale about Scrabble, she expressed some level of disbelief. In a sense, I wrote this story to prove that I could.

I love playing Scrabble myself, so it was easy to identify with Jason’s and Matt’s passion. Their passion for the game, I mean! The characters popped into my head more or less fully formed: Jason, the tournament veteran, focused, self-confident and dismissive of serious relationships; Matt, the newbie, with his nerdy good looks and his secrets. Once I got started, the story wrote itself. However, I’ve revised and expanded it for this release, to highlight the romantic connection between the heroes.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read many genres, but I’m particularly drawn to science fiction and paranormal stories. I grew up on steady diet of Heinlein, Asimov and Bradbury. Meanwhile, all through my childhood my dad made up original ghost stories to entertain us. It’s not surprising that I love both genres as an adult.

The best scifi I’ve read in the past decade is The Windup Girl by Paolo Baccigalupi. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern might be the most enchanting and moving paranormal novel I’ve ever encountered. I recommend both of them highly.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s another hard question. Possibly Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle’s complete opus has pride of place on my bookshelves. I’ve read it so many times that I feel I know Sherlock personally. Meanwhile, he’s everything a character should be: uniquely fascinating, often admirable, but deeply flawed.

Playing To Score by Lisabet Sarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #NewRelease #GayRomance

What are you working on at the moment?

My major WIP right now is The Journeyman’s Trial, the second book in my series “The Toymaker’s Guild”. This is steam punk erotica with some romantic elements, set in an alternative Victorian England. Gillian Smith, the nineteen year old engineering genius who’s my heroine, is one of my favorite creations.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Aside from The Journeyman’s Trial, I will be republishing a number of romance titles from my back list, including my multi-genre mega-opus Rajasthani Moon. That novel was the result of another personal challenge: how many different romance subgenres could I hit in a single title. It’s a steampunk/ menage/ paranormal/ BDSM/ Bollywood/ Rubenesque spy story!

I’m also planning to put out some boxed sets, including the full Asian Adventures series which will release next month. Most of my work is available in multiple stores, but my boxed sets are Kindle Unlimited.

Read For Eternity by Samantha Calcott @CalcottSamantha #RLFblog #NewRelease #LGBT #PNRA human and a wizard find a mutual connection in Samantha Calcott’s new LGBT paranormal romance, For Eternity. When the vampire war begins, will their love survive?

Samantha, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about For Eternity.

For Eternity by Samantha Calcott

Genre MM PNR

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

After World War Three, the world is scourged by vampires, and the only hope of stopping them lays in the hands of nineteen-year-old Desi Duponce.

He has an idea, but in order for it to come to fruition, he must collaborate with the older wizard Oscar Scott.

Desi didn’t expect his new partner to be so alluringly handsome. In addition to fighting the vampires, Oscar teaches him much more than he expected as he shows Desi the true pleasures of being his submissive.

Why did you write this book?

Originally, I wrote this as a 3k word short story for an anthology, but I wanted more detail in the vampires and while Desi and Oscar were potionmaking, so I rewrote it into a novella length. I was inspired by a different fictional character and my love for him, and wanted to create someone just as attractive and powerful, hence Oscar.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I actually love horror, but dark romance has a special place on my heart. Especially BDSM.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre. He’s so stoic, sarcastic, and alluring.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am working on Yes, Professor. It’s a coming of age taboo BDSM romance about a college student and her cruel, sexy professor and the things he will put her through to earn a degree.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Yes, Professor releases May 7th, and I have my first sweet romance, Coffee Shop Christmas, coming in November, in the multi-author boxed set Sugar Plum Kisses.

Are you Dating a Vampire? Advice from Kryssie Fortune, author of Claimed as Theirs #Vampire #Romance #RLFblogKryssie, welcome back to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! You have some advice for us on dating vampires. Share away!

Are you Dating a Vampire?

Ever wondered about that hot, hot guy you’re dating? The one with the smart suit and perfect hair? Is he too good to be true? Could he be a vampire?


Maybe not.

After a near miss with some fang, I started digging through the myths.

First, do your beloved’s eyebrows meet in the middle. That could be a sign he’s a vampire, or just bad taste on your report. However, that leads nicely into a more important fact.

Does he have a reflection? Perhaps he can’t see how his eyebrows merge. Does he have fingers? He could feel them. Any fool can buy a pair of tweezers. If he doesn’t pluck them, perhaps you should think twice. Annoying as his tendency to a monobrow is, it isn’t proof, though.

So what’s the answer??

Bling. Wear loads. Just make sure there’s some silver amongst it. Like werewolves, vampires hate it.

If you’re feeling extra sneakey, hold his hand. Is his middle finger longer than his ring finger? Add that to the monobrow and the lack of reflection, then it’s time to back off.

Still not satisfied? Take him out for a meal. Does he eat his steak blue? Or does he have meat served tartare? That’s a clue right there.

Finally, when the moon’s full, does he suggest a picnic in the woods. If so, run like hell. There’s another reason for my interest in vampires. My new book features three of them, all mated to the same feisty female.

Her pet hates are unhappy endings and cliff hangers. She guarantees you won’t find either in her books. Her books sizzle with sensual heat, but story always comes before sex. Even when part of a series, her books can be read as stand-alone romance.

Bucket list of Deja Alvarez from A Stroke at Midnight @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #ContemporaryLockdown creates love in Lyndell William’s new BDSM romance A Stroke at Midnight. Tied down by guilt and separated by quarantine, Mateo and Deja decide to free themselves with a New Year’s Eve night of passion. But will it destroy their family and friendship?

Let’s meet Deja Alvarez from A Stroke at Midnight. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here!

A Stroke at Midnight by Lyndell Williams

Genre BDSM romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings):

He will have her before the year is out!

Mateo spent too many years craving the taste and touch of Deja’s body. He restrained from taking his brother’s widow to bed. Now the sinner in him is winning the battle. He is through imagining all the naughty things he can do with her. Time to put all his kinky plans into action.

He assembles his toys, determined to stroke Deja by the time the clock strikes twelve on New Year’s Eve.

Deja knew it was wrong to lust after her dead husband’s brother. She tells herself that Mateo only wants to help raise her son, but she can’t keep ignoring the way he looks at her and how it makes her tingle with desire. She can’t resist the call of his hot body, and she does not want to.

A Stroke at Midnight is a BDSM holiday short with an alpha male into kink. **NO abuse, NO cliffhanger, guaranteed HEA!**

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 43

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Buffalo, New York

Profession: Grants Management Specialist

Ethnicity: African American

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I am a tall woman. At about 5’8″, I usually tower over those around me. I love wearing my naturally coily black hair, so it frames my oval face and brushes the top of my shoulder. It takes a lot of work to keep them springy, but Mateo likes it that way. So, I make sure my coils are in all their glory when he’s around. Did I just write that? Yeah, I did.

I’m not supposed to be so into my husbands’ older brother, but Javier has been gone a long time. His death tore all of us up. Mateo and I clung to each other, and now, I’m feeling … things. Where was I?

Oh, yeah. I have dark brown skin, which I keep moisturized with my own combination of cocoa and shea butter I mix myself. Winters in Buffalo can be brutal on my skin, and a girl doesn’t want to run around looking ashy.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Let’s see. I am in my early forties and the mother of a great teenage son, even though he has been a real pain in the butt lately. When I am not hacking away at my laptop for work, I use the rest of my time and energy trying to keep Benito in line. He has been a handful since Javier died. I love him so much, though. So, I let my son live.

I work from home, which makes me a major homebody. That’s all right because the pandemic has everyone locked down at home most of the time anyway. My life hasn’t changed much. I still work and socialize over Wi-Fi, laughing, crying and arguing with friends and family through face time and direct messages.

Who is the significant other in your life?

As weird as it is for me to think, my brother-in-law, Mateo is an “other” and incredibly significant. He moved to Buffalo to help me with Benito. Over the past few years, he became the father figure in my son’s life and slipped into co-parenting him with me. I trust him with so much, more than anyone else in my life.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

I am an only child.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

When I was a kid, I had one of those Speak and Spell toys. I begged my parents for weeks for one. It was my gateway to writing, and I have been a keyboard geek ever since.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

My favorite food is anything someone else cooks for me. The way it is prepared is by me sitting my plump bottom on the sofa, watching TV.

Tell us about your best friend.

I am not the best friend type of person. I love me some me, though. So, I guess I am my own best friend.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Hmm … Well, there is one place I would like to visit, but I know I never can, unless I convert. I always wanted to go to the city of Mecca. My cousin, Brandon is Muslim. He showed me pictures of when he went on a pilgrimage there. It was so beautiful, but only Muslims are allowed in the city.

I would also like to go to Peru. My Zumba instructor, Maritza is from there.

Where is a place you would never like to return to, and why?

I could live without going to France again. Javier took me to Paris for our honeymoon. I do not understand all the hype about that city.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

I want to meet Michelle Obama’s stylist. For real, the woman never looks bad. I want to get tips and tricks from the person who makes the former first lady stomp around awesome, all day, every day.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

I try my best to avoid Benito’s girlfriend, Amanda’s parents. Amanda is sweet enough, but I can’t stand her parents. I had arranged for us to meet at a restaurant for dinner. Her father had the nerve to wear one of those red hats. It was obvious to me that he wanted to send a message, and I got it loud and clear. So, I steer clear of them.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

I am happy in my own time. I am not interested in going back and fiddling around with the past. The future is full of unknowns, which is scary as hell. I do not want to go there either, only to find out the people I love are all dead or something.

Meet Lyndell Williams

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

A Stroke at Midnight is my first venture into the BDMS romance subgenre. I want to explore and incorporate a range of sexual proclivities and fetishes for my characters and bring them to readers.

I was nervous about drafting love scenes with BDSM elements. Things can go wrong quickly, turning a scene meant to be sensual and titillating into something gross. It takes finesse.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

One of the challenges about short stories is that readers don’t get a lot of detail about the characters. Authors must give enough to make characters interesting and drive the plot, and nothing more, which means leaving out a lot of background. I wanted readers to get to know more about Deja. I had to keep so much of her awesomeness out of the book.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

No. A Stroke at Midnight is a standalone book. Readers have asked for a follow-up. You never know.

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?

None. I am a romance writer. I would like to write in romance subgenres. I have a few paranormal romances, and I want to write a sci-fi romance so badly. I am simply scared of all the world-building. I may hunker down and do it one day, but I have to find the time before I can write any time travel.

Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

Many readers find my books to be divergent from a lot of stories in the romance genre. I craft diverse characters in stories that challenge the standard type of love stories that center on finite races and backgrounds.
