Karen Cino is a multi-published author of eight novels, two novellas and a book of poems and has been writing since she was fourteen years old. She started her career by writing poetry, short stories and writing article for her high school newspaper. After reading Jackie Collin’s Lovers and Gamblers and Jacqueline Susann’s, Valley of the Dolls, Karen found her niche. She wanted to write women’s fiction and wrote her first book during the summer before she started college. Her daily walks down at the boardwalk are what gets her muse going. It clears her mind and helps her find realistic plot ideas and the characters boosting up her muse. Karen loves writing about local places that people can relate to. The late Paul Zindel’s books took place in Staten Island and reading them, especially My Darling My Hamburger, still brings back many memories for her.

Karen loves the summer, loves the beach. Her books are written in Staten Island, and take place in various places across Staten Island. Karen relocated to Barnegat, New Jersey in 2015. She traded in the Staten Island Boardwalk for the shoreline in Long Beach Island.

Karen has two children, Michael Giordano who’s a singer, songwriter and producer, and Nicole Giordano who works at Home Depot and is also a photographer. In 2014 Karen married John Gatti. Her husband is an actor, teacher and attorney.

Searching for the Truth

Lady Sirena Hollister has lost her family, her home, and even her fey abilities, but somehow the fairies have handed her an unexpected chance at a Season in London. From her place on the fringes of high society, she resolves to find the truth about her only brother’s vanishing, and settle her family’s score with the wily English Spy Lord, the Earl of Shaldon. Soon enough, her schemes stir up an unknown enemy…and spark danger of a different sort, in the person of the Earl’s handsome heir, Viscount Bakeley.

Seducing the Beauty

But Lady Sirena has grown into a beauty whose charm and courage intrigue him. When danger threatens, Bakeley comes to her rescue, risking scandal, the ton’s disapproval, his interfering father’s ire…and his own heart.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: historical romance
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I’ve written many books, and have previously published two full-length novels (one a romantic suspense and one an historical romance) and three novellas (contemporary romance).
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this is the first in a series. I’ve just contracted the second in the series, Love and Turmoil, and hope it will be out before the end of the year.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No, I can’t say that I lost sleep, but the characters and the plot were my constant companions until long after the book was finished. I’m considering writing a short story about Max and Sybil’s life a few years later because I want to visit with them again.
you did research for this book?
Oh, yes, lots and lots of research. That’s my favorite part of writing historical fiction. I especially enjoy searching for an obscure tidbit that I can include in the story.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Hm…not in the book exactly, but sheep are extremely important to Sybil. And there’s a question about fleas. Oh, and a very interesting conversation about fruit bats.
this book has more than one genre?
No, just historical romance.
you speak more than one language?
No, alas, I’ve lost most of my childhood French. As a Canadian, with French being the official second language, I was instructed in French from grade three thru grade 12. I remember enough to locate a bathroom or a library, LOL.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, but only recently. We moved back to Nova Scotia a few months ago.
you love to read?
Yes! I can’t imagine not reading. I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I even belonged to a children’s book club and can remember my feeling of joy when I got home from school to find a new book in the mail.
you are never late?
I HATE being late and usually leave early to avoid it.
you love pizza?
Yes. Pretty much any topping except pineapple – I don’t understand that one at all.
you love sushi?
No. But I have to confess that I’ve never tried it, nor will I ever. I have a psychological block to the concept of eating raw fish, or any other type of raw animal protein.
you have a pet?
Yes, two cats: Mogget, a girl, and Bruno, a boy. She’s a princess and he’s a simple soul.

Andrea R Cooper Social Media

Andrea has always enjoyed creating characters and stories. But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels. She writes fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, and historical romance. Under the pen name, A.R. Cooper, she writes YA Fantasy. Her debut YA series is Shadow Bloodlines.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).
Andrea writes fantasy, paranormal, historical, and romantic suspense.
She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.

Is It True: Crimson Dreams by Margaret L Carter #RLFblog #vampire #PNR

Play Is It True with today’s guest Margaret L Carter, author of Crimson Dreams, a Vampire Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

The summer when Heather was eighteen, her dream beast’s nightly visits warded off loneliness and swept her away in flights of ecstasy. Now, returning to the mountains to sell her dead parents’ vacation cabin, she finds her “beast” again. But he turns out to be more than a dream. She meets Devin in the flesh, apparently not a day older. His first human lover, centuries in the past, died horribly because of her devotion to him. Does he dare to expose another mortal woman to that risk?

Genre: Vampire Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, my “Vanishing Breed” vampire universe. Almost all the novels and stores can be read on their own.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No. I lose sleep about some things, but not writing.
you did research for this book?
Yes, some fact-checking about the setting, based on a location in the Shenandoah National Park we visit every summer.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes, a Golden Retriever, and of course the vampire hero. My vampires are members of another species, not supernatural undead.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, if you count fantasy and romance as two genres; no, if you consider paranormal romance a genre in its own right.
you speak more than one language?
Yes, sort of. I studied Latin for five years in high school, but it’s a case more of reading it than speaking it. I’ve also taken a little French and German.
you grew up where you live now?
No.
you love to read?
Yes, ever since I was four years old.
you are never late?
No, but hardly ever.
you love pizza?
Yes—at least, I like it.
you love sushi?
Yes!
you have a pet?
Yes, three pets, a St. Bernard and two cats.

Reading Dracula at the age of twelve ignited Margaret L Carter’s interest in a wide range of speculative fiction. Vampires, however, have always remained close to her heart. Her work on vampirism in literature includes Dracula: the Vampire and the Critics, The Vampire in Literature: a Critical Bibliography, and Different Blood: the Vampire as Alien. In fiction, she has written horror, fantasy, and paranormal romance. Recent publications include Crimson Dreams (vampire romance) and Legacy of Magic (sword and sorcery, in collaboration with her husband, Leslie Roy Carter). “A Walk In The Mountains,” co-written with her husband, appeared in the 2016 anthology Realms of Darkover. A sequel, “Believing,” was included in Masques of Darkover (2017).

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No
this book is part of a series?
No. It’s a standalone
you lost sleep while writing this book?
I always lose sleep. My characters love to torment me in the middle of the night and I frequently get up to write at 3:00 am.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Absolutely loads. I have a friend who uses Tarot so I took her to lunch and picked her brain. She did a reading for me and then I went away and studied tarot and witchcraft to such a huge degree.
I also did a massive amount of research on the Inner Hebrides.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Some are definitely not human. Ruth has three rather interesting black ‘cats’.
this book has more than one genre?
I think so, it’s a contemporary dark paranormal, but it’s prologue is historical.
you speak more than one language?
Unfortunately not. I can understand a certain amount of German and French, but I just never practice enough to keep my schoolgirl languages up to date.
you grew up where you live now?
No. I grew up in Africa and Germany. I travelled extensively throughout Europe when I was a child.
you love to read?
Absolutely. I never go anywhere without either my kindle or a book.
you are never late?
No. I hate to be late for anything. I’ve spent so long juggling work, children and activities that I tend to run things with military precision. Well, not so much these days now my girls have grown up…
you love pizza?
No. It certainly doesn’t love me. I always get terrible stomach pains after pizza.
you love sushi?
No. It’s not so much the fish as the bland rice. It just doesn’t appeal.
you have a pet?
I have several. A stunning Dalmatian called Skye, and handsome black Labrador called Beau. Felicity, my one-eyed kitty who’s forever in trouble and Sam our ginger queen who rules the house. We also have six chickens – soon to be more as one is brooding over four fertilized eggs.

Diane Saxon lives in the Shropshire countryside with her tall, dark, handsome husband, two gorgeous daughters, a Dalmatian, a one-eyed kitten, a ginger cat, six chickens and a black Labrador called Beau, whose name has been borrowed for her hero in For Heaven’s Cakes. After working for years in a demanding job, on-call and traveling great distances, Diane gave it all up when her husband said “follow that dream.” Having been hidden all too long, her characters have burst forth demanding plot lines of their own and she’s found the more she lets them, the more they’re inclined to run wild.

Is It True: Perfectly Skeptical by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #romance #comedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Linda O’Connor, author of Perfectly Skeptical, a romantic comedy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Perfectly Skeptical (Perfectly Series novella) ~ Dr. Brianna Scott looked forward to sleeping away her staycation, until a lucky windfall meant an upgrade to palm trees, an ocean view…and the sexy Dr. Matt Gaelen. She’ll play and have fun, but can a holiday fling really turn into a soul mate for life? Doubtful.

Matt has no radar for sniffing out gold-diggers and protecting his heart. Until now. Brianna is more turned off than turned on by his wealth. What are his chances of getting her to overlook it? Dubious at best.

Improbable and uncertain, iffy and unlikely – the typical path to love.
