Faye Hall, 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Vanity and Humility by Faye Hall

Genre Australian Historical Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

What if vanity threatened to destroy the only love you’ve ever known?

Ethan Brant is on the hunt for a murderess who is seducing her victims and stealing collections of diamonds from each one.  When the woman he suspects becomes his father’s newest wife, Ethan’s fears multiply and he agrees to travel with the newlyweds to Australia to help expand his father’s business interests, and protect his only remaining family at all cost.

Arriving in Rockhampton, Ethan never loses his suspicions of his father’s bride, especially when more bodies begin turning up, each a similar age to his father and all robbed of their diamonds.  If he could only find something to tie all his evidence together, he could finally put an end to this case.  What he finds instead is an intriguing young woman swimming on his father’s property who sends his emotions into turmoil.

Cady Eldon’s history with men taught her it was foolish to lose her heart to one.  When she meets Ethan down at the lake though, she couldn’t ignore the fire he burned inside her, making her long for the feel of his skin against hers.  Discovering he was in fact a police detective, she becomes intrigued.  Why would a man so wealthy, and with such a noble career, want to live so humbly?

Her attraction to this man, and her interest in the murder case he was working on, pulls them together on a journey north where they become entangled in the manipulative web of the murderess Ethan is chasing.

As their affair continues, Ethan and Cady learn just how cruel one woman’s vanity can be and how she will stop at nothing to get the riches she believes she deserves.

Will their love survive, or will they fall victim to the greatest sin of all?

Envy and Favor by Faye Hall

Genre Historical Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

What happens when a resentful man is determined to win the favor of the one you love?

For years Atol Livia has desired only one thing—to move north, far from the corruption of his father’s business, and start a life with the woman he loves. That is if Anna Jenel can look past his poverty and will agree to marry him. When Anna informs him that she gave her heart to him long ago, never once caring about any wealth he might have, he’s elated. But their plans are delayed when Atol’s father is found murdered. Once Atol has finally settled his obligations and is able to leave town, he goes to collect Anna but discovers that she is gone.

Anna doesn’t understand why her father whisked her away in the middle of the night to travel north. When they arrive, she finds a fully operational cattle station, and an associate of her father’s willing to do anything to gain possession of it—even marry her.

When Atol arrives up north, all he can think of is being reunited with Anna. But he soon discovers that the man who murdered his father now has his eyes set on Anna and will do whatever is necessary in order to have her as his wife. This man is determined to gain possession of Anna’s cattle station and the orange sapphires hidden there.

Will Atol and Anna be able to protect each other from a murderer, or will they fall victim to the envy of this man and lose each other forever?

Wrath and Mercy – Sins of the Virtuous Book 5 by Faye Hall

Genre Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Would you show mercy to the lover who deserted you?
Finley Helmer thought he had it all when Elina invited him into her bed. He thought he found passion and love beyond compare. Instead he was thrown into a life of smuggling black opals, drugs and aboriginal slaves. When he was charged with murder, he fled town to escape the charges, vowing to return and ask his lover why she’d handed him over to the police.
Elina Clemence was ripped away from her home and the man she loved and brought to Australia to start her life anew. Her father promised her beauty and opportunity. What she found was a cruel and abusive business partner, and a step-daughter who wanted to destroy her.
Despite the constant accidents following her and threatening her life, Elina sets herself up as a profitable shipping tycoon, with control over most of the towns supply. Despite her powerful position, her heart still ached for the man she once loved who disappeared from her life without a trace.
Finding themselves passionately reunited, Finley and Elina discover the cruelty that tore them from each other. As they search for answers, they uncover the unrelenting wrath and vengeance of an opium addict who will stop at nothing until she has possession of the black opals she thinks they are hiding.
Will their love for each other allow them forgiveness, or will they fall victim to the horror that seems to be following them?

Know the Hero from Apathy and Vigor by Faye Hall @FayeHall79 #RLFblog #Australian #historicalromanceFaye Hall, 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 about the book.

Apathy and Vigor by Faye Hall

Genre Australian Historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Will the love of a woman save him from his own apathy?
Tristen Brone lived a carefree life of wealth and passion – until one day it all came crashing down around him. In only a few days he lost everyone he loved in the world – his woman, his best friend and his parents. The once confident, handsome young man, was now scarred for life and on a quick downward spiral of sorrow and depression. He no longer wanted to live.
When Amalie Fergus arrives on his doorstep, a travel bag in her hand, begging him to take her in, he becomes suspicious. Despite his passionate past with this woman, and the feelings he still had for her, all he could think of was how quickly she abandoned him after the fire that killed her brother and left Tristen physically scarred. So why had she come back into his life after all these months?
Amalie Fergus lost her brother in a fire, her lover had abandoned her upon finding her with child, and now her father had been poisoned, leaving their properties to be repossessed. She had nothing and no one left to turn to. In desperation, she found herself forced to work for a living, trying to do her best as a maid for any rich gentleman who would take her in. What she hadn’t expected was for one of those men to try and force carnal favours from her, or for her now to be on the run for his murder.
Running from the scene of the crime, fearful what was to become of her, Amalie finds herself colliding with a man from her past who offers to hide her from the police on one condition – she return to Tristen and steal some property papers from him.
Trapped by the man from her past, and now forced back into Tristen’s life, Amalie searches for who murdered her brother. She could never have foreseen the cruelty she would discover, or the man she would willingly surrender her heart to.

Let’s meet Avarice Licciardi from Avarice and Charity, an Australian Historical Romance by Faye Hall. 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.

Avarice and Charity by Faye Hall

Genre Australian Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Would you protect the one you love from relentless greed?
Avarice Licciardi worked for his father, Antonio – a greedy, loveless man who destroyed everyone in his way. When Avarice met Charity, a woman with fiery red hair and the touch of an angel, he discovered there was something he craved so much more than his father’s money. What he wanted was this woman.
When Antonio ordered his son to get the hidden papers in Charity’s estate, Avarice refused. That was until Antonio threatened to go get the papers himself. Knowing the brutality of his father, Avarice went to Charity’s estate, ready to protect her at all cost. When she invited him to stay with her, he hoped to find nights of endless passion. What he found was a hidden tunnel with incriminating mysteries far greater than hidden papers.
Charity Bohdan lived up to her name, giving her herbal medicinal treatments freely. What started off as patching up wounds soon took a very different direction when she was being called to treat young women who’d been brutally raped and left pregnant. She knew the risks involved with treating and re-homing these women, but until she could find the monster attacking them, she could see no other choice.
When Charity was called to treat a drunk’s wounded hand, she expected to find some elderly station hand. Who she met was Avarice. As she treated his wound, she couldn’t ignore just how handsome he was, or the feelings he stirred in her when their skin touched. The more time they spent together, talking of Irish legends and going on picnics, Charity could feel herself losing her heart to him.
Together Avarice and Charity are forced to uncover secrets from the past that sicken their souls as an evil, greedy man threatens to tear them apart in his search for the evidence hidden in the Bohdan estate.

I know how important it is to be able to live a comfortable life, but I have also seen the destruction and heartache it can cause.

My father, Antonio, is a very cruel man who thinks his power gives him the right to treat people as possessions. My mother was a beautiful, kind hearted woman who embraced her Irish heritage.
What would you like people who hear your story to know?
