Is It True: Mistletoe in the City by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #NewAdultCrafting romance with sugar and heat in Mistletoe in the City a novella by Amber Daulton.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Amber Daulton, author of Mistletoe in the City, a New Adult Contemporary Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Mistletoe in the City by Amber Daulton

Genre New Adult Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG 13

Krista Hartley never expected the unrequited love of her life, the irresistible Derek Weston, to work as the groundskeeper at the apartment building she just moved into. They barely spoke in high school but now, three years after graduation, they tore at each other’s clothes and jumped into bed together at every opportunity. After all, how could a hot-blooded woman say no to a sexy man with an eyebrow ring, a dragon tattoo and a deadly swagger?

A Christmas miracle drew Krista back into Derek’s life. He kissed her for the first time under mistletoe, pampered her with romantic candlelight dinners and memorized every inch of her delectable body with his tongue. He refused to let his dream girl slip through his fingers again but then another woman threatened their whirlwind romance. Hurt once before, Krista broke off their relationship and then Derek made a drunken mistake that could destroy their love forever.

With just days to Christmas, he vowed to win back her heart and trust, and prove his innocence once and for all.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. Mistletoe in the City is my fourth book out of a dozen-plus now available.

this book is part of a series?

Yes! It’s book 3 in the Handmade for Christmas anthology. Authors Jennifer Conner and Natalie Nicole Bates also have stories in the antho. All the novellas are standalones.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

Not really. The plot and characters came together fairly easily, which is always a relief.

you did research for this book?

Of course. Research is a must, no matter the genre or type of story. I had a blast researching the artsy neighborhoods in Seattle, where the story takes place, and since Krista is into arts and crafts, I found a bunch of cool pictures and projects on Pinterest.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Not true. No pets, shifters, aliens, sea monsters, etc make an appearance. Sorry, folks!

this book has more than one genre?

Yes. It’s a New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Christmas novella.

you speak more than one language?

Nope, but I wish I could.

Oh, yes. You can’t be a professional author without reading.

you are never late?

True. I’m usually early, which can be just as bad.

I’m only human.

you love sushi?

No. Yuck. I’ve tried it, but I just can’t eat raw fish and seaweed.

you have a pet?

I have two wonderful kitties, Darby and Pepper. Both are 8 years old.

Is It True: The Slow Burn by Caro Carson @TheCaroCarson #RLFblog #romance #ContemporaryRomance #readA fireman fights his way out of the “friend zone” and into the fire of a hot, new contemporary romance by USA Today bestselling author, Caro Carson.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Caro Carson, author of The Slow Burn, a new contemporary romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

The Slow Burn by Caro Carson

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Out of the friend zone…and into the fire!

When firefighter Caden Sterling unexpectedly delivers Tana McKenna’s baby by the side of the road, the unlikely threesome forms a special bond. When Caden offers friendship and a helping hand, single mom Tana can’t say no. Their flirty friendship slowly becomes something more, until Tana’s ex and the truth about her baby catch up with her. Now Tana must try to regain Caden’s trust—because he is the only man who can make this family complete.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No. This is my 17th published contemporary romance with Harlequin. I also have two delicious time travel novels for those who love pirates.

this book is part of a series?

Yes! This is the second book in my new “Masterson, Texas” series. All the books are set in the same college town, but each book tells the complete story of one couple, so you don’t have to read them all or even read them in order.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

Yes, I always, always lose sleep when writing a book. It takes a toll. I really need to develop better work habits.

you did research for this book?

Yes! I rode along with the city’s fire department, a full twelve hours going out on calls with them, eating meals in the firehouse, everything. I was once a first responder myself, an officer in the US Army’s military police corps, so I’d worked with firefighters, of course, but never this closely. They are true public servants, arriving on every scene with the goal of helping however they can.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

No. All human beings in this book. Some are nicer than others! Our heroine has to handle a lot of different responses to her accidental pregnancy, from her boyfriend (who immediately decides he is her ex and leaves the country) to her parents to her BFF…to the handsome fireman who comes to her rescue.

this book has more than one genre?

No. It’s a contemporary romance with a heartwarming happily-ever-after.

you speak more than one language?

No. Once upon a time, I knew a decent bit of German because I took it in high school and college, but I think a second language is one of those things which falls under “if you don’t use it, you lose it.” But I still love schnitzel und bier!

you grew up where you live now?

Yes. Sort of. I’m a native Floridian from the Miami area. Then I went to West Point, the United States Military Academy, in New York, then was sent by the army to Alabama, Georgia, Texas, and the country of Panama. After my service, my civilian job took me from Baltimore to Pittsburgh to…Orlando! Yay! I made it back to my home state, just about a four-hour drive north of Miami. Yes, I do have annual passes to Disney World. It’s my childhood dream come true.

you love to read?

Yes. How could anyone write if they didn’t read? But I don’t read nearly as much as I used to, because I know I should be writing instead.

you are never late?

No. I am always late. If West Point and the US Army couldn’t make me prompt, nothing can, I’m afraid. But I keep trying. I’m always so frustrated when I don’t get somewhere on time, because I do not want to be late.

you love pizza?

Yes, I love pizza. All kinds. All toppings except anchovies—too salty for me. But I will eat the oh-so-controversial Hawaiian pizza. Pineapple and ham taste so surprisingly good on pizza. My most memorable pizza was eaten in a California Kitchen restaurant, their BLT pizza. The bacon and tomato part was hot, but the shredded lettuce and mayo on top was cold, and the whole danged thing was delicious. It might not actually have been a pizza, though.

you love sushi?

Yes. I’m a sushi lover, but please don’t squeeze the orange mayonnaise stuff all over it. That sauce is too similar to McDonald’s special sauce, which is fine on a Big Mac, but I don’t want it on my tuna and salmon!

you have a pet?

Yes, two kinds. First, I have the requisite adorable little rescue dog, who loves me and keeps me company and does all the wonderful things dogs do for undeserving humans. Second, I have fish. I love my aquarium and I get attached to my goldfish, because they can live as long as dogs. I’ve had my current goldfish for seven years. He started as a little two-inch dude at a pet store, and he’s now bigger than my fist. Please do not point out to him my answer to the sushi question, above.

Initiative–a smoldering new short story collection by Emerald. Heat and boldness abound in Initiative, a new collection of thirteen sizzling short stories from award-winning author Emerald.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Emerald, author of Initiative: Tales of Erotic Boldness, an erotica short story collection. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Initiative: Tales of Erotic Boldness by Emerald

Genre: Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

From audacious proposals to first-time exploits to newfound inner confidence, taking initiative delves into the risqué in these thirteen smoldering tales. An accidental catalyst invokes a bold move in “Fulfillment,” while the brassiness in “Shift Change” belongs entirely to narrator Stacey. “Who’s on Top?” sees a meeting between fans of rival baseball teams turn into a game of chance and wits, and “The Beast Within” offers a present-day “Beauty and the Beast” rendition that puts a twist on ugliness, beauty, pain, and pleasure—and the surprising ways they can intertwine.

Sometimes brazen, sometimes subtle, the initiatives between these pages always showcase the erotic and how it can both inspire and evoke our most emboldened selves.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

It is not. I have had two prior short story collections published: If… Then: A Collection of Erotic Romance Stories and Safe: A Collection of Erotic Stories. This is the first one with a particular theme.

this book is part of a series?

No, it’s a short story collection, and the stories within it are not related to each other (except by the title theme).

you did research for this book?

Yes! With thirteen stories, the chances are at least a few of them are going to require some degree of research. Ironically, one of the stories that required the most was set in a place that is very familiar to me, namely a Midwestern state fair. But because I don’t live there anymore, I wasn’t there when I was writing the story and couldn’t remember how the fairgrounds were laid out and things like lighting, hours, and how deserted the section where I wanted the sex scene to take place would be at what time. I also had to research certain specifications of the farm equipment that comes into play in the story.

“Winter” also required a considerable amount of research, largely because it was set in a place I wasn’t so familiar with. I have been to Alaska, but not during the winter, and I became quite immersed in this story’s research—Alaska seems like a mysterious, beautiful place, and a lot of the photographs and materials from its tourism websites speak to this. I felt very drawn to the setting as I was writing the story.

Then there was research that was less extensive but aimed toward specificity, such as looking up the history of Beauty and the Beast and finding certain details about the original story, as well as ones that had tended to remain through various versions, so I could reference them in “The Beast Within,” which is a modern-day rewrite of the tale.

Even with short stories, research, in my experience, is part of the writing process, and it’s an aspect I’ve usually tended to enjoy.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes, there are two stories that feature pets—and in fact, in both cases, the pet is at least partially responsible for the characters’ either meeting or connecting. In “Fulfillment,” the main character Kristen has a yellow tabby cat named Cheerio, and in “Changing Tides,” character Ray has a border collie mix named Jameison.

this book has more than one genre?

I would maybe say subgenre, given that it is all certainly erotica, but some of the stories in the book could be considered erotic romance more than erotica.

you speak more than one language?

No, just English, though I know a rudimentary amount of American Sign Language that I learned in elementary school. I also know a bit of French, though less than it seems I should, given how many years I took of it in high school and college!

you grew up where you live now?

It is not. I grew up in Iowa and lived in my hometown until I was twenty-one. I then moved to Pittsburgh, where I got my undergrad degree, moved to the Washington, DC, area for grad school, moved to Spokane, WA, to pursue an MFA (I ended up choosing to leave that program before attaining the degree), and then returned to the DC area, where I’ve been for about the last fifteen years. I live a little west of the metro area now in a small town in Virginia.

you love to read?

Yes, though I’ve tended to not do it as much as I’d like due to feeling like I “should” be doing other things. I’ve loved reading since I was a kid. I’ve tended to read more nonfiction than fiction in recent years, but I am specifically aiming to get back to reading for pleasure of late. As strange as it seems, it was only within the last year and a half that I discovered how much I adore Jane Austen’s work! I picked up Northanger Abbey on a whim last year and eagerly worked my way through Austen’s entire catalogue over the next several months. It really reminded me how awesome it is to read fiction purely for pleasure and entertainment.

you are never late?

Ha! Alas, I wish the very asking of this question wasn’t so laughable. Ironically, I despise being late even though I have frequently tended to be…I truly seem to have no sense of time.

you love pizza?

Depends on what kind. I seem to be in the minority of most of the people I’ve known in that my favorite kind of pizza is sauerkraut.

you love sushi?

I do love sushi, though there are some things I have not tried and don’t feel an interest in trying. But I adore spicy tuna hand rolls and hand rolls in general because I’m such a fan of the seaweed.

you have a pet?

I have four! Two sibling dogs (that I still call “the puppies” even though they’re five now) from the local no-kill shelter where I volunteer, and two cats who are also rescues—one is blind (was born that way) and one had to have her front left leg amputated prior to coming into my care. I end each monthly issue of my author newsletter with a picture of one or more of them!
