Refugee Trail by Tracy Falbe @tracyfalbe #RLFblog #fantasyTracy Falbe, 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.

Refugee Trail by Tracy Falbe

My inspiration for this novella came from thinking about refugees who must literally walk away from their ruined homes and into the unknown. It tells the story of the young hero, Myles. He’s the leader of a band of survivors from a terrible war. They are pursued by slave hunters.
Genre: Fantasy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Myles and his people are now bereft of their ancient Kadolia magic. Their Elders say that the magic came from their homeland and that it is gone forever. They are scrambling desperately through badlands to stay ahead of Lasher slave hunters when a faction of survivors wants to turn back and surrender. Annihilation looms until Myles senses the return of his power.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
Although it’s a bunch of work to prepare, I love doing a fish fry with fish that the family has caught, especially bluegill because they are available in quantity and truly delicious.
Describe the perfect vacation.
My perfect vacation reveals my introversion. I would love to go to a writer’s retreat in a secluded natural settings. All meals would be prepared for me, and I would have my own room. My family is NOT there, but I might like to have my dog. I won’t have to do a single thing except sleep, write, and take walks. My perfect vacation with the family would be the same thing: full-service setting where I perform no menial labor whatsoever.
What are your hobbies?
I grow fruit and vegetables. I raise and breed French angora wool rabbits. I’ve been learning to spin wool, so that’s a newer hobby for me. I bake pies.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I read all manner of books. I’ve always got my eye out for a good fantasy or sci fi, but I tend to read nonfiction. I like to read about hunting, survival, memoirs, true crime, psychology, politics, demographics, and history. Two of my most recent reads were American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon by Steven Rinella and Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
Research materials vary. I might be looking for details to make elements in a story feel authentic. Like I’ll look up human anatomy to determine wounds I can deliver that someone could conceivable heal from. I’ll read things about shamanism, witchcraft, and various mythology. I seek out materials for character research too because I want insights into human experiences. Two of my novels had elements that dealt with child soldiers, so I read articles about that. For my historical fantasies, I’ve focused a lot on clothing, art, religion, and politics.

I was born in Michigan in 1972 and grew up in Mount Pleasant. It’s called the “Mountain Town” but there is no mountain and it’s debatable about whether it’s pleasant. They say it’s a party town and based on extensive research as a young adult I can concur.
Because I always had the childhood fantasy of running away and joining the circus, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1995 and lived there until 1997. Those who only stay a week are wimps, but I will say that it’s the second year in Vegas that wears you down. Then I realized the pioneers were trying to get to California, so I moved to Chico, in Northern California and lived there until 2009.
In 2000, I earned a journalism degree from California State University, Chico with the conscious ambition of becoming a fiction writer. With the rapid demise of the newspaper industry and journalism in general, novelist is not such a daft pursuit after all. It’s not like I’m actually going to get a job that values my education. Luckily I’m cursed with the impulse to write in a popular yet competitive genre.
My wandering has circled back and I’m currently residing in Battle Creek, Michigan, and for now my existence within the post-apocalyptic Rust Belt is suitably fascinating.

Dan Alexander, Pitcher by Jean Joachim

Fed up with cheating women, Dan Alexander, star pitcher for the New York Nighthawks, grew restless. Searching for something more than a bar babe, he zeroed in on a girl in the stands. He never expected to see a beautiful chick pushing frankfurters. But the hot dog girl looked as smokin’ as the food she was selling.
Holly Merrill found a place to hide in plain sight, as a vendor at Nighthawks’ stadium. Keeping her secret safe and simply happy to stay alive, she never considered finding love an option. After all, a bad girl doesn’t deserve a decent guy, does she?
Coming off his best season ever, Dan went into the playoffs, hell bent on winning the pennant and playing in the World Series. But could he maintain his focus on the field, where everything was going right, when off the field everything was falling apart?

The Diamond Gate by Holly Bargo

Every night for two years, seven sisters—princesses all—walked beneath silver trees hung with jeweled fruit, crossed a still black lake, and danced to liquid music with their faerie suitors. Every night for two years, their shoes collapsed and kept the city’s cobblers busy.
His schemes for political and trade alliances thwarted by his daughters’ nightly disappearances, the royal duke of Nuygenie invited royalty and aristocrats from far and wide to solve the mystery and win the hand of a princess. They came and they failed.
Then a common soldier, aged by war and years, thought to try his luck and improve his circumstances. A kindness to an old hag resulted in a magic cloak of invisibility and excellent advice that he put to good use to break the enchantment that held the princesses in thrall to their fey suitors.
Rejoicing, the duke elevated the soldier to serve as his general, so that the man might have rank befitting his royal bride. General Miles Carrow chose the eldest sister, Aurora, and wondered at the emptiness of their betrothal. The duke then cemented other political and trade alliances with the blood of his other children: Crown Prince Eric, Prince Ascendant Jonathan, Princesses Rose, Pearl, Celeste, Grace, Lily, and Hope. The two youngest princes, Roderick and Simon, were yet too young to be married off as benefited Nuygenie.
The passage beneath was blocked and sealed with iron. The sisters did not discuss all they had lost. No one ever asked them if they had even wanted to be rescued.
This is the story after the faerie tale.

The Conundrum of a Clerk by Linda Rae SandeRead The Conundrum of a Clerk by Linda Rae Sande #FreeBookFriday #Read

When widower and bank clerk Theodore Streater discovers his late mother was not only the headmistress of Warwick’s Grammar and Finishing School, but also its owner, he’s in need of someone to run the rather lucrative enterprise. He turns to the woman who helped him regain his position at the bank after he lost an arm fighting in Belgium. His best friend’s wife, Elizabeth Bennett-Jones, Viscountess Bostwick, still runs her charity, Finding Work for the Wounded. She is sure there’s an applicant who would be perfect as headmistress of her old school.
Having lost her position as an operative with the Home Office—her slight limp from a gunshot wound is hard to hide—Daisy Albright is at a loss as to what to do next. She could return to her father’s home. The Duke of Ariley would like nothing more than to have his oldest illegitimate daughter under his protection until a suitable marriage can be arranged. But after several years of handling her own affairs away from the aristocracy, Daisy is determined to retain her independence.
So when Viscountess Bostwick informs her she has a position in mind, Daisy immediately pays a call on the new owner of Warwick’s to apply. Poor Teddy Streater has no idea what he’s in for when he hires the ex-spy to run the finishing school. He would prefer to court the comely lady who seems prim and proper, but what woman wants to marry a man with only one arm? Perhaps he should be in search of a mistress. Trouble is, he can only imagine Miss Albright in the role in The Conundrum of a Clerk.

Dangerous Addictions by Naomi BellinaRead Dangerous Addictions by Naomi Bellina #FreeBookFriday #Read

With the aid of an inexplicable but opportune super-power, he’s determined to conquer any hurdles to gain back his freedom. Except one hot mess of an obstacle he can’t get around.
A terrorist attack poisons the water and leaves hundreds of thousands of Americans dead. Countless more are left with diminished brain function. As the government seizes control, order is restored in the country but freedom is taken away. A nation is quarantined, all citizens regulated to stay within the borders.
For Riley, a genius hacker, that lack of freedom, particularly travel restriction, is not acceptable. When he suddenly develops a bad-ass power and learns he can manipulate electricity, he sets out to use that power to gain back control. The discovery of a murder forces Riley to team up with Danika, an enigmatic woman with her own freaky power and scary secrets. When they find that the dead scientist was working on a machine to uncover more people with superpowers, the adventure begins as they attempt to track the device.
Death and danger shadow the pair as they travel to the waterways of Florida, the mountains of Colorado and places in between. With each of them following their own agenda but compelled to work together, they search for answers in a world shaped by devastation, and discover love, and buried pieces of themselves along the way.

The Raven Witch of Corfu, Episode 1 by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss #RLFblog #NewRelease #fantasyromanceEffrosyni 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 – episode 1 by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre Fantasy romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
A terrible evil lurks in the mountain…
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. Far from it, Lizzie has a daunting task to undertake: 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 and won’t let them be…
Lizzie does her best to help her brother and do the witch’s bidding, too afraid of losing him again. New friends help them adjust and have some fun, and then love comes into her life to bring new hope. For the first time, it seems possible to fight off the witch. All she has to do now is trust enough…
Will she succeed? Will Corfu ever be again the perfect paradise she once knew?
“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. And it’s certainly a page-turner.” ~Hilary Whitton Paipeti, author of In the Footsteps of Lawrence Durrell and Gerald Durrell in Corfu”
This highly imaginative Greek fantasy romance will intrigue and uplift you, making it feel like you’re on the island, experiencing it all with your senses. It is also guaranteed to leave you longing for a visit to your closest Greek restaurant!
Why did you write this book?
The Corfiot village of Messonghi, where the book is set, is one of my favorite places. Tiny, quaint and evergreen, it seems like paradise on earth. I also have a strange affinity for the pyramid-shaped mountain that’s part of its coastal view. The mountain also featured in the first romance I wrote, The Ebb. In The Raven Witch of Corfu it is the place that hides the secret of the cave and the evil deeds of Phoni, the witch. It was my love for Messonghi that inspired the story one summer morning as I sat on the beach there and gazed at the mountain absentmindedly, as I often like to do. I have many readers, Brits mostly, who adore this part of the world like I do. I guess I wrote the book to please them, the way it pleases me to read it, now that it’s complete. It brings back the bliss of being there during the summer in sparkling colors…
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy many different genres but if I had to pick one, I’d say paranormal stories with ghosts.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Froddo from The Lord of the Rings, which is one of my favorite books. That little guy didn’t stop at anything to protect what he loves. His story is very powerful and resonates deeply in me.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m not writing anything new yet, as I’ve literally just finished working on this new release. But I am already plotting my next novel in my head and hope to start writing soon. It’s a romance set in Greece, probably another romantic comedy as I really enjoyed writing The Amulet which is in that same genre.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I hope to publish two books late next year, both romances, and knowing me, they’ll probably involve a ghost, a Greek god, an angel or something whimsical like that. I think the world is magical, if only we believe it to be so, so can’t help adding to my creative mix a generous sprinkle of fairy dust
Thank you so much for this opportunity to present my new book to your readers, Kayelle! The Raven Witch of Corfu is published in 4 kindle episodes. The paperback will follow soon.

Storm Crazy by Livia Quinn

Welcome to Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…
I’m Sheriff Jack Lang. After an exciting career as a Navy pilot, Destiny seemed like the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But that ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy – sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. Tempe never fails to test the limits of my patience or the law. Every time I think it’s the last straw, up pops another haystack.
My name is Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. I’m also a Paramortal like my family, or I’m supposed to be. If I didn’t have a few little talents, I’d think I was adopted. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. My brother’s genie bottle is missing, my mother’s AWOL, and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim over a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. I’ve denied my heritage for most of my life but all this chaos is a sign of my quickening Tempestaerie power.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thinks he’s settled in a normal, quaint small town—like Mayberry?! We’ll see how that turns out… Things better settle down soon, ’cause I’m about to go…Storm Crazy.

Detour Ahead by Adriana Kraft

Threatened race horses, city slicker attorney, sexy California wrangler—what can possibly go wrong?
Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R and R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.
Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.
The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her – like he does his horses – before she flees in panic?
Traci Steele may be the most damaged of the heroines in our four-book horse racing suspense series, Riders Up. If she was a real person, she might stand up and say “Me, too” – except she’s never told anyone, not even her best friend, Cassie.

Summer Rules, a novelette by Coralie Moss

As far as Elaine is concerned, when summer’s tourist season arrives on Salt Spring Island, it’s the off-season for romance. Her mini-empire of gourmet food trucks needs her undivided attention, and from the end of June through Labor Day, her ironclad Summer Rules are in effect. Sex is off the menu.
Richie’s a local tree trimmer, focused on building his business. He’s on hiatus from relationships until he meets the renowned entrepreneur, Elaine Atkins. She needs an experienced lumberjack to take down a tree that threatens to land on her most popular food truck. And when her cook can’t make it into work, Richie can’t say no to Elaine’s plea for a temporary sous chef.
The saucy rapport and spicy heat inside her popular taco truck aren’t all coming from what’s cooking on the stove. Elaine’s a vital woman in her mid-forties, and though Richie is twelve years younger, he deftly handles everything she tosses at him, starting with her resistance. By the end of the lunch rush, he’s ready to ask her for a date. And that’s when Elaine finds out just how hard it is to stick to her Summer Rules.

The Dragon Wore A Kilt by Holly Bargo

In the northern reaches of Scotland rests Loch Saorach, home to an ancient legend—a dragon. The Matasan family has guarded the loch and its dragon for centuries.
Over the years Saorach has claimed humans, imbuing them with his fae magic. Connor Matasan, the arrogant Earl of Glencarol, is a recent acquisition. Like all those possessed and transformed by the dragon’s ancient magic, Connor is sith, immortal and commanding powers beyond the human norm.
Middle aged wife and mother Lila is vacationing in Scotland when Saorach chooses her to join his brood. Her transformation to an eternally young sith is painful and compounded by the loss of everything she holds dear. Waking to a new life, she is utterly dependent upon Connor and his family. Lila feels trapped and resents that the dragon has bound her to Connor, soul to soul, passion to passion: a passion Connor cannot control, a passion Lila fears.
Will the magic that brought them together destroy them?

Vesta’s Clockwork Companions by Juli D Revezzo

Genre: Steampunk Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): 1
When Vesta Bartlett, a wealthy alchemist and inventor, arrives in England to finalize an arranged marriage and help overhaul a family friend’s outdated ironworks, she never expects to find the family so secretive, nor to develop feelings for her fiancé’s younger brother, Henry.
But the growing attraction between Vesta and Henry is just the beginning of their troubles. Things really heat up when they’re drawn into a secret project for Queen Victoria’s military, one that requires Vesta’s knowledge of clockwork and Henry’s iron.
An epidemic has wiped out all the dogs in Britain, and beyond. If the military fail in their effort to restore the species, a clockwork creation may be all that stands in the way of a world without canine companionship.
Are Vesta and Henry up to the challenge?
Why did you write this book?
I wrote Vesta’s Clockwork Companions because I wanted to write a Victorian romance and this young woman (Vesta) popped into my head. She happened to be a Texan blacksmith and alchemist who was betrothed to an Englishman, what was she doing with her clockwork when the young man wasn’t looking, I wondered, why did she keep chatting with his brother? So with that idea came the story and all the little background steampunk elements that ended up in the book.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Fantasy, romance, classics. I read pretty much anything.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I have several. Elric of Melniboné, and Lily Bart and Lawrence Selden from House of Mirth by Edith Wharton, Clarissa Dalloway, from Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, Jacob Flanders from Jacob’s Room (also by Virginia Woolf), Jon and Kira from The Yden series by Suzanne G. Rogers, (also Jessamyn from her book Jessamyn’s folly.), King Arthur, Morgana, Tibby (from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares), and inspector Abberline from the movie From Hell, Zoe, and indeed the whole crew of Firefly, and many, many, many more.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment, I’m getting Vesta’s Clockwork Companions out there, and working on the next book in my paranormal fantasy series, Antique Magic, as well as the next book in my fantasy romance series Celtic Stewards Chronicles.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I have several I had hoped to have out this year, but realistically I might only manage one more this year. Hopefully, that will be the Antique Magic book I mentioned above depending on rewrites and edits and all that usual pre-publication jazz. If I’m really lucky, I might have two, out before the end of the year, but I’m not holding my breath.

Dragons of Wendal by Maria Schneider

Genre Fantasy Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Learning new magic isn’t as easy as Zoe expected, especially when the mages at Gorgon University seem dead set against teaching. Add in some necessary late-night sneaking about, and Zoe is almost certain to be kicked out. No one in their right mind would view going to Wendal as a good alternative, but that’s where Zoe ends up after she accidentally gains the attention of both a dragon and a wolf shifter. To regain her freedom, all Zoe has to do is unravel one very large curse that has befallen Lindis, the dragon. And then there’s the wolf, Derrick.

Maria saw her first dragon while gardening. She asked the gnome to take pictures, but dragons are shy and very fast. One of the fairies finally snapped a shot, but just as she handed it over, the dragon came by and flamed it to ashes! Neither of us wants to get our fingers burned a second time so, sadly, there will not be pictures any time soon!
