Jeremy Hanks had a bad feeling about Emilee Sawyer but the reserve could use some positive exposure after all the mudslinging of a local developer.

Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #fantasy #magic #PNRDee S Knight, 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 Your Desire.

Awards Night in Your Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Your Desire. A mysterious shop appears in town for one reason: to bring the spice of passion and the thrill of love to one special person. Magic is in more than the item purchased—it’s in the heart of the buyer, often hidden, usually surprising. And after enchantment takes hold? The store fades from sight and memory, only to reappear somewhere else. Maybe in your town….

The Artist and the Director
Derica Meadows, the conservative Director of Accounting at a large San Francisco firm, sees the most beautiful dress imaginable in a shop window. So different from her usual genderless pant suits, she’s swept into acquiring the gown for a formal business affair the next night. But a funny thing happens on the way to her party, in the form of a compelling man and a photo shoot. Suddenly, the normally logical Derica finds herself swimming in a sea of sexual freedom she’d never before considered. The hunk of a artist can satisfy her fantasies, but what will happen to her climb up the corporate ladder in the process? And to her heart?

Awards Night
Allison Hayes has always tried to be all things to all people. Need anything done? Call Allison. It seems no one considers that Allison might have needs, too. When she goes home one night to find a man injured in her pasture, she resigns herself to helping out yet again. However, it isn’t long before she finds the roles reversed, as the mysterious man fulfills her deepest desires. By morning, Allison knows that in being the Good Samaritan this time, she’s gotten more than she gave. The question is, was it passion for one night or for a lifetime of love?

Know the Heroine from Awards Night in Your Desire

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Allison doesn’t have too much time to be bored–she works full-time as a nurse and also is one of those “go-to” people everyone seems to call on when they need a patsy…I mean good person to help out. Allison rarely says no. She gave up her dreams of traveling in order to take care of first her mother and then her father when they became ill, and now lives on her inheritance, a large farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where she raises sheep. Considering that an accident from childhood left her with a nasty limp and the fact that her body wears out quickly, her normal life takes all the energy she has. Thus, no time for boredom.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Allison enjoys food but she’s one of those people who eats to live, not lives to eat. Her weight is important because of the complications with her legs, but it wouldn’t matter. Eating is not her fun thing in life. When she does have an impulse, it’s for pizza, a treat she doesn’t have often.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Usually, she’s in a nurse’s uniform. Otherwise, she likes loose-fitting clothing that’s comfortable. She raises sheep, so she’s big on wool for the winter. She loves the feel of sheepskin slippers and coats, and has some very nice wool sweaters and slacks. For the warm (dare I say hot?) Virginia summers, she likes linen or cotton slacks and short sleeved tee shirts. She rarely wears shorts due to the scars on her legs. One thing she would never have willingly worn is the formal taffeta gown she bought for her high school reunion. Not only were the colors horrid, but the stupid thing made a noise with each step she took. Finding the dress must have been fate, though, because of what else (or who else) she found beside a crashed car in her front yard later that night!

Does she know how to fix things?

Allison is fairly independent and can take care of light repairs around the house, but luckily for her, she has her uncle and cousin living on the next farm and they will usually help with anything she can’t handle.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

She tried to say no, that she would not help with this high school reunion. She came up with excuse after excuse but could not talk herself out of the guilt if she left her best friend high and dry without help. So, she gave in–not all that gracefully. Then she had went shopping and did another thing badly–find a dress for the costumed vintage event, something reminiscent of the 1950s. And what a horrible dress she ended up with! Truly, it was the worst possible dress to everyone except one special person. For him, it turned out to be a miracle. Or maybe a piece of magic!

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Allison enjoys children, though she doesn’t find herself around kids she doesn’t know all that often. When she does, she forgets that she limps until the honesty of children’s questions remind her. Still, she doesn’t mind their questions as much as their parents’ embarrassment. She would love to have her own kids someday. Living in her small town doesn’t seem to present many opportunities. Until fate drops a guy right into her pasture–after tossing him through her fence and against one of her huge oak trees!

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Truthfully, she’d always appreciate more sleep, but her work ethic doesn’t allow her to sleep beyond the alarm. By the time she’s showered and had her first dose of caffeine, she’s ready to meet the day.

Can she use chopsticks?

No. When she has Chinese food she’s firmly in the “Fork, please,” set.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Yes, and lots of it. Black, please.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Allison barely has a mobile phone, much less apps. I’m sure she wonders what an app is.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

She doesn’t have pierced ears. When she wears earrings–which she usually does not to work–she wears something close to the ear. No chandeliers because they’re distracting. She has a few nice pairs of gemstone studs.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

No tattoos, no piercings, no perfumes. Just skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She has a car, and needs it, living on the farm. Public transportation is pretty much out of the question even when she’s in town.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Shilpa Suraj, 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 Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters.

Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters by Shilpa Suraj

Genre Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): 7/10

She believes in love, family and…squiggles!

Alisha Rana is not your typical single desi girl. For one, she is on the wrong side of 30. For another, she is divorced. And last but definitely not least, she is still, gasp, a virgin!

Alisha doesn’t want much. But what she does want is that elusive thing all women search for – A man who gets her…but a man who gets her hot! She calls it “feeling the squiggle.”

Enter Dr. Vivaan Kapoor, cute, hot, squiggle-worthy. The younger brother of her cousin’s prospective groom, he’s got the squiggle factor in spades. The only catch? He’s never been married and is years younger than Alisha. Basically, completely off-limits.

And then there is Arjun. Widowed, older than her by the right number of years and a genuinely nice guy. He’s Vivaan’s cousin and a so-called perfect match for Alisha. The problem is, Alisha’s squiggle-o-meter refuses to budge for him.

What will Alisha choose? A lifetime together with the ‘right’ man or a chance at happiness with the ‘wrong’ one?

Know the Heroine from Love, Marriage, and Other Disasters

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

She’d watch a movie in her pyjamas while demolishing a bowl of ice cream.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Ice cream. Always, ice cream.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Jeans with ethnic kurtas, simple dresses and comfortable shorts and pyjamas at home.

Does she know how to fix things?

No. She’s not the fix things type. She’d prefer to call in an expert to do it.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Alisha tries to be the dutiful daughter and meet the man her parents have picked out for her. Unfortunately, this does not go well as she finds herself strongly attracted to his cousin. It’s an attraction that is as intense as it is inappropriate, and Alisha finds herself torn between familial expectations and her own desires.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Alisha isn’t instinctively maternal. She’s extremely family oriented and would make a wonderful mother to her own children but she isn’t the sort to cuddle or play with every child she happens to meet.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She is not a morning person and is extremely grumpy until her humongous mug of tea kickstarts her day.

Can she use chopsticks?

She has never attempted it so far but would be game to try.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Yes. Coffee with milk and enough sugar to make your teeth hurt. Although, the first beverage every morning is tea. Coffee is for the rest of the day.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Candy Crush, WhatsApp, Kindle

Android or iPhone?

Android

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Earrings

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Personal vehicle on most days but sometimes uses the company cab when she isn’t in the mood to drive herself.

Know the Heroine from The Director and the Artist in Your Desire

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Derica works hard and when she has free time she uses it to unwind from her stressful job. If she’s bored, she’ll draw a hot bath, add some good bath scent and relax—maybe with a book and glass of wine.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

She watches her figure stringently, so if she’s able to impulse eat, it would eb with fast food. A burger or chili dog.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

She’s very professional, and even in business affairs, she’s aware that her shape draws the attention of many of the men she works with. She has a wide selection of black pant suits that she accessorizes with beautiful scarves. She wears very conservative but feminine blouses under the jackets. One she meets Kailen, her life (and her wardrobe) is turned upside down. When he chooses her clothing, it’s anything but professional or black.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s a modern woman who lies alone, so she’s gained quite a few skills around the house.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

There isn’t much that Derica does badly. She’s a woman who is about to be named partner in her firm, and she’s young, so if she did things badly she wouldn’t have the position she does. But she did try to set up her roommate in college once. Her friend and blind date hated the sight of each other, making her promise never to try to matchmake again.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She doesn’t dislike children, but she’s not drawn to them. Basically, she tries to avoid them, although she can interact with them if she has to.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Ready to go. Up with the alarm first goes off and goes from 0 to 60 in a few seconds.

Can she use chopsticks?

Of course. She interacts with international clients and tries to respect their cultures.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee, black, please. If you need caffeine ,no need to dilute it.

What apps would she have on her phone?

The stock exchanges, business magazines, the WSJ online.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Earrings or unpierced ears?

She has pierced ears and wears studs, nothing dangly.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Strictly unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She has a car but in San Francisco it’s more a hindrance than a joy, so she mostly uses public transit.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle.

Know the Heroine: Sarah Forsythe from The Woman Behind the Mirror by Jan Selbourne @JanSelbourne #RLFblog #Historical FictionJan Selbourne, 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.

The Woman Behind the Mirror by Jan Selbourne

Genre Historical Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marry in haste, repent at leisure is the last thing on Sarah Forsythe’s mind when she and the son of a local minister elope to the American colonies. She wasn’t to know abandonment, misery, poverty and shame would follow. As the colonies rebel against British rule and the siege of Boston worsens, alone and afraid, Sarah hides her desperation behind a hard shell. To survive, she is forced to steal from her employer. Instead of the cash she needs, she finds Bank of England documents. Sensing they might have some value, Sarah protects them through months of deprivation until she finally secures passage home to England. Unknown to her, two men are following, intent on claiming those documents. At any price.

Bank of England fraud investigator Neil McAllister faces the biggest challenge of his career when a woman from Boston demands a reward for returning lost documents to the bank. Then two men with the same name and nearly identical stories arrive in England, each claiming ownership of them. Who is lying? Or are all three accomplices in a plot to swindle the bank? As the obstinate, secretive woman gets under Neil’s skin, he trusts that she was an unwitting witness to the crime of cold-blooded betrayal and treason before the fall of Boston. Now it’s up to Neil to protect Sarah because the traitor wants her dead.

Know the Heroine from The Woman Behind the Mirror

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Sarah has little patience. She’s pacing the floor and thinking of something she should be doing.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

She loves venison pies – a real treat in the 18th century

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Sarah suffered years of deprivation in the American colonies. She’s used to counting every penny but still loves green gowns and matching combs in her hair.

Does she know how to fix things?

Yes, survival is a great teacher. She’s broken into buildings searching for anything of value, narrowly escaped capture and learned the hard way to be self-sufficient. Her pride stops her asking for help.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Demanding a reward for these valuable documents set off alarm bells at the Bank of England but Sarah wouldn’t budge. Unknown to her, a man recently arrived from Boston has convinced bank fraud investigator Neil McAlister, that he is the owner of this account. Grateful for their safe return he insists on paying the reward to Sarah in person. In front of her family and Neil McAlister, he exposes her shameful life in Boston – keeping men happy in a gambling club.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She can be very impatient and that’s because life has taught her ‘don’t trust anyone’. To do so will bring hurt and humiliation. It’s not until bank investigator Neil McAlister wins her trust that she learns to love again.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Since running away her life has been extremely difficult. She’s wary and careful and very alert.

How does she handle things when in a “proper” social situation?

Very well, she was brought up in a privileged home and taught all the social niceties.

Maid or takes care of herself?

Life in the colonies taught her to take care of herself, a maid is sheer luxury.

Proper dress or casual clothes?

Proper dress even if it’s somewhat shabby.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

Buttoned.

Powdered wig or natural hair?

Natural black hair

Carriage or horseback?

Carriage.
