Happy Veteran’s Day 
Kayelle Allen here. Romance Lives Forever is dedicated to new
authors and new books. As such, I rarely step in as a blogger — I prefer to interview
guests and feature others. My own blog, Unstoppable
, is where I do my own “bragging” about new books and events.
But today on RLF, I want to honor some special people: veterans.
The first Veteran’s Day was called “Armistice Day”
and was proclaimed by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson on November 11, 1919. In proclaiming
the holiday, he said, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will
be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service
and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has
freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy
with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.” Unlike Memorial Day,
which celebrates those who died in service, Veterans Day celebrates the service
itself. Wikipedia

Today, I’m honoring fellow veterans who are authors. This is
by no means an exhaustive list. These folks are proud to stand and be counted. Please
visit their sites, and get to know them and their books. I believe the highest honor
one can pay an author is to buy his or her book.
Authors are listed in alphabetical order by first name. This
list shows their brand (type of writing), name, branch of service, and website.

Stuffed Mushrooms 
Romance Lives Forever welcomes back Marketing for Romance Writers
member Jennifer France for a Taste of Summer Camp. MFRW is counting down the
days to their FREE marketing summer camp with scrumptious recipes from members.
Today’s recipe is Dottie’s Stuffed Mushrooms. Take it away, Jennifer!
I know, I know. I normally write of all things dealing with BDSM
but today I’m going to write about something that, for all intense and purposes,
can be much better!
If you are a writer (no matter what genre (yep: even BDSM) ~
aspiring, published (self or otherwise)) I have something amazing to share with
you! It’s called Marketing For Romance Writers (MFRW).
We all know that having a network of friends to help fill in
the blanks is invaluable … well MFRW has a wealth of resources- people full of
information because they have either been there, done that, or researched it and
are so very willing to pass their information on to you. It doesnt end there – they
have classes to help you get your work from the laptop to the bookshelves. It’s
nothing short of amazing the things these folks do for writers like us!
Of course the best part is that you can join! What could be better
than that?!? Oh, I know: It’s free!
What perfect timing too since they are gearing up for Summer
Camp the second weekend in July (12th to the 14th) and I’m here to help promote
this fabulous opportunity with what we’re calling A Taste of Summer Camp to get
this information out there by sharing a recipe. Romance authors, join MFRW’s Yahoo Group today so you don’t miss out on this
excellent learning opportunity.
Since I love to write about things that make my mouth water,
I’m gonna share a favorite, mouth-watering, low carb recipe that I can never make
enough of for my guests ~ even had a caterer ask for the recipe to this one;).


2 pounds fresh mushrooms
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 pound pork sausage (I like sage)
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste (I don’t use any)
Remove the stems from the mushrooms by gently twisting them off.
Drain the fat, if necessary. I found it helpful to chop the meat up until it was
pretty fine, but not mushy. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except the mushroom
caps. Fill the caps with the sausage mixture. (I use my fingers worked best). Pile
in as much sausage as you can per mushroom. Put in a greased or foil-lined baking
pan(s) and bake, uncovered, at 350º for 20-30 minutes until hot and bubbly.
About 30 mushrooms
Do not freeze

Book: The Highlander’s Witch

The Highlander’s Witch
For years, twenty-three-year-old Skye Bennett has been waiting
for someone to sweep her off her feet and bring about her darkest fantasies. But
there’s just one problem – she comes from a family of witches and her older sister,
Sarah, uses her power of fire to interfere in every intimate relationship Skye has.
When their aunt mistakes Skye’s date as her soul mate only to
discover he is really Sarah’s,

her family tries to make up for it by finding the
man Skye truly belongs with. Unfortunately, their last attempt failed miserably
when they set her up for a speed-dating event, so her aunt resorts to magic to accomplish
their desires. Suddenly propelled back in time without warning, Skye is saved from
a brutal cougar attack by a Scottish Laird who has just returned from another skirmish
and only wants to sit in front of a warm fire with a mug of ale. Instead, Aiden
finds Skye and believes the unknown ‘lad’ to be a spy. When he finds out the spy
is a female his concern grows, as does his lust.

Aiden realizes this woman can be his downfall but she calls to
him in a way he cannot deny. Has she been sent to destroy all he has fought for,
or is she his salvation? Fighting his desires, he knows he must ensure the safety
of his home and kin from those that wish to destroy what he has fought to hold onto.
In this tale set in fourteenth century Scotland, a witch must determine if
she can trust the man who holds her life in his hands – even as he steals her heart.
