Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire by Kayelle Allen

Exiled to a barren world with only a human for company, the immortal Pietas demands the mortal serve him. When Six refuses and insists they are equals, Pietas is outraged. How dare a mortal refuse anything he requests? But when he needs Six’s support to find and join his people, Pietas must learn to humble himself and ask for help–politely– and even more outrageous–request forgiveness. From a human. For without aid, the immortal king might spend an eternity alone, never finding the people he has already died over a thousand times to save.

The Dragon Wore a Kilt by Holly BargoThe Dragon Wore a Kilt by Holly Bargo #FreeBookFriday #Read

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?

Know the Heroine from Courting the Stationmaster's Daughter by Juli D Revezzo @julidrevezzo #RLFblog #historicalromanceJuli D Revezzo, 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.

Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter by Juli D Revezzo

Genre: Historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
After Honorine Camden is jilted, leaving her stunned and sparking a scandal in her tiny London borough of Wallflower, she’s devastated. But when she overhears her father, the stationmaster, talking about arranging a party for their newly-minted underground railway station, she volunteers to help. Although she’s intrigued with the handsome assistant stationmaster, Shane MacIntyre, she never expects to fall head-over-heels in love with him. Unfortunately, one tragic accident might derail everything.

Know the Heroine from Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Since you said it’s late, Honorine will usually pull out her collection of dried flowers, and sort through them–or pick up a book. Her go-to is anything on natural history, but right now, she’s trying to finish Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Apple fritters.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Her long dress with the holly garland around the hem and cuffs is her favorite. If she can forgo the bustle, she’s most comfortable without it.
Does she know how to fix things?
Not really. She can dig a post hole, though. Anything gardening related that can be applied to fixing anything? She could do that.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Where do we start? She’s trying to organize this party, you see, and every little detail seems to keep spiraling out of control. She’s only got a week left, and still no venue, and then, there was this little thing of the train wreck on her father’s route…
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Stiff and quiet. She’s not really a child person.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Groggy, usually misses her father leaving early. But lately, she’s finding it hard to sleep so, has been getting up with the household staff, before dawn.
How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?
Usually quiet and demure. If there are friends around, she prefers to sit and talk with them.
Maid or takes care of herself?
She has a maid but can take care of herself, if necessary.
Proper dress or casual clothes?
Proper dress.
Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?
Rolled up.
Powdered wig or natural hair?
Natural hair, usually braided.
Carriage or horseback?
Underground train, if you please! J It’s the newest, latest way to get from Wallflower to London and points beyond. (Plus, her father, and her beloved, run the subway station in Wallflower, so it’s almost required conveyance for Honorine.)
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Devoted to the Duke (The St Clairs Book 1) by Alexa Aston

Genre: Regency Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
From bestselling Historical Romance author Alexa Aston comes a stunning new Regency Historical Romance saga!
Book One in the exciting new St Clair series has arrived. A lady with a dark secret refuses to marry the man of her dreams in order to protect him… but will he let her?
After returning to London from his Grand Tour, serious-minded Jeremy St Clair, the Marquess of Sather, attends a ball and meets a luminescent beauty who draws him out of his shell. They share a searing kiss—her first—and though he never planned to wed, Jeremy desires to make this young woman his.
But his life takes an unexpected turn when he leaves her that night.
With his father’s death, Jeremy becomes the new Duke of Everton, and learns the former duke has left the St Clair family almost penniless. Jeremy spends five years restoring the family fortunes but yearning for the auburn-haired beauty who understood him like no other before. One night with her was all he needed to remember her forever.
Lady Catherine Crawford has been inundated with offers of marriage and hasn’t cared for any of her suitors. She longs for love, seeing how devoted her parents are to one another. When she meets Lord Sather, she believes they are meant to be together. Yet her world collapses that night in a horrific carriage accident, killing her mother and seriously injuring both Catherine and her father. She retreats to their country estate and, once healed, cares her father and mothers her younger sister, Leah. But she’s never forgotten about Lord Sather… and their kiss.
When Jeremy and Catherine meet years later, the sparks are still present—though Catherine has recently learned a dark secret about her past, making it impossible to wed Jeremy without ruining his reputation. Through a misunderstanding, the ton believes them to be engaged and she goes along with the engagement, hoping to find a way to break it.
Will Catherine’s secret be revealed—and will Jeremy accept her if it becomes public knowledge?
Heartbreak is in their stars… or salvation.

Why did you write this book?
After writing 15 medieval romances, my publisher and mentor, Kathryn Le Veque, challenged me to try something new. She suggested the Regency Era—and here I am!
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love reading all kinds of fiction, but I’m partial to romance, suspense, and thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
There’s no one like Miss Elizabeth Bennet.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve finished my St Clairs trilogy and am now working on a trio of novellas that will be loosely tied to the St Clairs.

The Earl’s Defiant Wallflower by Erica RidleyThe Earl's Defiant Wallflower by Erica Ridley #FreeBookFriday #Read #Regency

From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:
Oliver York returns from war to find his father dead, his finances in arrears, and himself the new Earl of Carlisle. If he doesn’t marry an heiress–and fast!–he and his tenants are going to be pitching tents down by the Thames. He definitely shouldn’t be trading kisses with a penniless debutante… no matter how captivating she is!
Miss Grace Halton is in England just long enough to satisfy the terms of her dowry. But a marriage of convenience isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. Back in America, her ailing mother needs medicine only Grace’s dowry can afford. Which means the dashing earl she can’t get out of her mind is the one man she can’t let into her heart.
The fan-favorite Dukes of War series features roguish peers and dashing war heroes who return from battle only to be thrust into the splendor and madness of Regency England.
