The Alien and the Elf by Tricia Schneider

Genre Holiday Sci-Fi Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

My name is Noelle, and I’m an elf. I was minding my own business, testing a newly installed engine on Santa’s sleigh when it suffered a slight malfunction, and I found myself spiraling out of control.

Then a bright beam of light hits, and I’m taken onboard a spaceship. Jaxar is a sexy, to-die-for, green-skinned alien who thinks I’m intruding on his salvage.

He’s never met an elf. Well, I’ve never met an alien. With no way to get home, I need Jaxar’s help.

Can we work together to fix Santa’s sleigh in time to save Christmas?

It’s beginning to look a lot like … aliens for Christmas!

Get ready to set your holiday thrusters to hot! If you love alien romances, you’ll adore this brand-new collection of steamy alien novellas and short stories by New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling authors.

Know the Heroine from A Very Alien Christmas

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

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

Noelle likes to tinker. When she’s bored, she goes into Santa’s workshop and fixes things like broken toys or malfunctioning equipment. She also likes to invent things. She’ll take out a sketch pad and draw her ideas.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Peppermint candy canes

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Standard issue elf clothing. Everything is green, red and white. Sometimes with a combination of stripes.

Does she know how to fix things?

She loves to fix things! It’s her job! She’s passionate about taking things apart to see how they work and then assembling it back together. She’s always full of ideas on how to make things work more efficiently.

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

Noelle finally talked Santa and the head elf into installing a new engine in the sleigh. Something that doesn’t require the magic reindeer for flight. She’s testing the engines when something goes wrong mid-flight and the engines stall. Smoke billows and she and the sleigh plummet to the Earth. Thankfully, Jaxar is in the area with his spaceship and beams her aboard.

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

She loves children! She helps Santa deliver presents every year to children she doesn’t know. It pleases her beyond belief to make children happy.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Noelle can be a bit of a grump until she has her peppermint mocha latte. Yes, even in the North Pole they drink coffee.

How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?

She doesn’t get away from the North Pole often, but when she does, as long as she keeps a hat on her head to cover her pointed elf ears, she can pass for human. She has a bubbly, optimistic attitude and doesn’t shy away from meeting new people… or aliens.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

Noelle is a team player. While she does tend to take control of a situation, she knows protocol. She didn’t take it upon herself to tinker with Santa’s sleigh. She got permission from the big boss first. After that, she enjoyed working on the new engine, but she didn’t work alone.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

No earrings or other piercings. She thought once about getting a candy cane tattooed on her behind, but never went through with it.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Santa’s sleigh isn’t her personal vehicle, but he’s been known to let his elves take it for a spin now and again. As long as they aren’t seen by humans.

Recycle or toss?

Always recycle. Noelle is excellent at fixing or re-purposing broken toys and other items. She never throws anything away.

Know the Heroine from The Holiday Mermaid in the Desire Me Again BVS anthology by Alice Renaud @alicerauthor #RLFblog #paranormalromanceWhen Rowena left Adam without a word, she broke his heart. Now it’s almost Christmas, and she’s back… but she has webbed hands and feet, and a tail! Can Adam and Rowena put their past behind them and build a future together?

Alice Renaud, 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 Holiday Mermaid, a short story in the Desire Me Again anthology by BVS.

The Holiday Mermaid in the Desire Me Again anthology by Alice Renaud

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Blurb for The Holiday Mermaid

Adam fell for surfer girl Rowena the second he saw her. But just as their summer fling was becoming serious, she left him without any explanation. Now, with Christmas just a few days away, she’s back… and Adam discovers that she’s a shape-shifting mermaid, from a Clan that hates humans. Can he love her as she is? Can she brave her family to be with Adam for good, not just for Christmas?

Blurb for the BVS anthology Desire Me Again

The hopeless romantic believes that a soulmate exists for each of us. That there is one person who makes us feel how good it is to love them. For some couples, things trigger them to push that love away. They find out too late they’ve lost true-love. Sometimes genuine love deserves a second-chance at the happy ending that eluded them the first time.

Desire Me Again is an eclectic assortment of short stories exploring a second-chance at love. The collection is as diverse as the authors who wrote them. Here’s a chance to read the work of talented writers you may not have read before. Within these pages, there are blends of tender, often moving and thought-provoking stories.

Know the Heroine from The Holiday Mermaid

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

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

She goes for a swim. There’s always some fish to chase or a dolphin to chat to.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Fresh seafood. Oysters, shrimp, mussels… raw or cooked she loves them all.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

As little as possible. Clothes are a hindrance when you’re a shape shifting mermaid, they make shifting more difficult.

Does she know how to fix things?

As long as it’s something related to a boat or the sea. She can repair a fishing net in minutes, but don’t ask her to change a plug or fix a car engine. She’s never driven in her life, and she spent most of her life underwater until she met Adam.

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

She was always attracted by the human world. So one summer, she took advantage of the fact that her uncle and cousins were away to visit a human village on the coast. She met a young local man, Adam, and was immediately attracted to him. She thought she could have a summer fling, and then go back to her life as a dutiful mermaid of the Regor Clan. But she fell in love. She left Adam without a word or a note, because she couldn’t tell him the truth… but couldn’t bear to lie to him.

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

She loves children. She is warm and playful with them. She finds it easier to relate to human children than to adults.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Bright and sparky and ready to go, to catch the morning tide!

How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?

She is always on her guard, for fear of betraying her secret. Shape-shifting mermaids and mermen are supposed to keep their true nature hidden from humans.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

She’d have to let a worker handle things if it was something she didn’t have a clue about – like human inventions such as cars or electricity. But she prefers to do things herself when she can. She was brought up to work hard and be self-sufficient, as her parents died young and she was brought up mostly by her stern and traditional uncle, Rhys, leader of the Regor Clan.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Mermaids in the Regor Clan don’t wear jewelry or tattoos until they get married.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Public transport. But she likes her surfboard best of all.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle. Mermen and mermaids love the sea and the coast and do everything in their power to keep them clean.

Her life will never be the same.

Injured in Afghanistan, Samantha Kincaid is struggling physically and emotionally. She’s come to Spencer to create a new life, but can’t escape the nightmares and panic attacks that follow her.

Is the peace he’s found too good to be true?

After a couple years of being unsettled following his stint in the Army, Ren Garrett found a place to belong. Now his past has reared its unforgiving head. Accused of taking the daughter he can’t claim, he must exonerate himself by finding her.

Know the Heroine from Finding Hope

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

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

Read a good mystery or cuddle up with her guy, Ren.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Samantha’s favorite is chocolate cake.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

You’ll usually find Samantha in jeans or khakis and a comfortable t-shirt short or long sleeve depending on the weather.

Does she know how to fix things?

Samantha has done some remodeling. Her most recent project involved installing new drywall at her Aunt Gladys’ house.

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

Samantha is a Marine veteran dealing with PTSD and injuries she received from an IED explosion. She’s dealt with a lot of challenges over the past year and a half. She had to work hard to find her new normal and along the way she hurt people when she lashed out in frustration at her limitations. Especially at the beginning. One incident hurt her Mom’s feelings and Samantha felt lower than a slug after the incident.

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

She’s normally a quiet and reserved person, but if the child looks scared Samantha will try to put them at ease by talking to them.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

That depends on whether or not she had a good night. If she didn’t sleep well you don’t want to talk to her until she’s had a least one cup of coffee.

Can she use chopsticks?

She used them as a kid, then she got out of the habit. She needs to practice again, because her current attempts have been pathetic.

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

She drinks her coffee black when she drinks it. Chai tea and hot chocolate are also her drinks of choice. What she’s drinking depends on the time of day and her mood.

What apps would she have on her phone?

The normal ones for google, her camera, spider solitaire, Instagram and Facebook. She’d rather talk to a person face-to-face than text or post on Facebook.

Android or iPhone?

Android. That’s what her first phone had and she never felt the need to learn a new operating system.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced ears. She wears basic stud earrings most of the time, but has some fancy earrings for when she goes to parties or on dates.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. She admires tattoos on other people, but has never felt the need to get one herself.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She drives an SUV for personal use.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle whenever possible. She’s seen too many places around the world with major trash issues. She wants to do her part to save the planet and its resources.

Lost Hearts in the Bayou, an erotic romance short story, written by Amber Daulton.

Amber, 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.

Lost Hearts in the Bayou by Amber Daulton

Genre Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

After Julie crashes her helicopter in the Louisiana swamp, she finds help from a sexy scientist, who happens to be her ex! Too bad Seth is the all-work-and-no-play type. How will she convince him to set aside his work and take a chance on her? Or is a second shot at love too much to hope for?

Included in the Sultry Summer Sizzle anthology.

Know the Heroine from Lost Hearts in the Bayou

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

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

Julie’s a tomboy, so she would probably watch football or some kind of sports on TV. If her favorite teams weren’t playing, she would read the latest crime thriller novels on the bestseller’s lists.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Potato chips, definitely.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Tank tops and comfortable cargo shorts or khakis. She only dresses up when the occasion calls for it, but trust me, she can rock a slinky black dress and high heels.

Does she know how to fix things?

Oh, yeah. Since she’s a pilot, she knows all about the mechanics of a plane and how it operates. Give her a wrench and she’s happy.

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

She took a chance on a guy completely different from her normal type. Seth was intelligent, sensitive, and driven while her past boyfriends were carefree and macho. Some of those jerks even had the tendency to jump into other women’s beds. Even though she and Seth started out hot and heavy, he ended up caring more about his scientific work than he did spending time with her. After he forgot about her birthday, she called it quits.

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

She’s standoffish around kids, whether she knows them or not.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Coffee. If you wake her up before the alarm goes off, you better have a cup of java in your hands. After a dose of caffeine, she turns from a grouch to a woman who’s ready to seize the day.

Can she use chopsticks?

Yep. She’s eaten enough Chinese takeout to master the delicate art of dining with chopsticks.

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

Uh, hello? Did you miss my earlier comment?

Just kidding! She’ll drink coffee night and day if she had to. She takes it black in the morning and with cream throughout the day.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Hmmm. Time zones, terrain, airflow, geography, and stuff like that are important factors in her job, so she’d have apps to reflect that.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone. The sparkly blue case she has for her phone is one of the few girly things she owns.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

She loves to wear diamond studs in her ears. Seth had given them to her for a Christmas present before they broke up.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

No tats, but she’s not opposed to getting one. Maybe someday.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She loves her sporty red car, but she’d rather fly than drive.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle, of course. Litterbugs are a big no-no in her book.

Know the Hero from Awards Night from Your Desire by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romance #fantasy #magic #PNRFantasy and magic await in Dee S Knight’s erotic romance, Your Desire. These two novellas show how the perfect touch of magic can fulfill fantasies and spark the flame of love. Dee, 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 about the book.

Awards Night from Your Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre Fantasy paranormal 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 Hero from Awards Night from Your Desire

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

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

He’s Franklin Nicholas Hughes. He doesn’t get bored. As founder and head of NicHughes Electronics, there’s always work to be done. When he has time off, his mind is always reeling with new ideas and products. Boredom? What’s that?

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Nic—or Frank as he told Allison his name was—doesn’t think much about food. He’s one of those eats-to-live people, not lives-to-eat. Currently, he has a housekeeper who leaves him meals at home and a secretary who makes sure he eats at work, or he’d probably never remember food. On impulse, though, he’d buy junk food like Hostess Cupcakes.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

At work he’s a suit kind of guy. For very casual wear, he’ll do jeans and a tee shirt, but most often, he’s in slacks and a button-down shirt collar—with a sports jacket if he’s going out. Casual for Nic means no tie.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, especially if it’s tracing down an electrical issue and rectifying it. He can repair things, but at this point, he’d prefer to hire someone else to do it.

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

He decided to get involved in robotics with his company. He jumped in feet first and didn’t lay the groundwork. The project never took off. But he got his act together and took time to learn a few things and a year later, his company developed robotics used to help people with head and limb injuries. Nic doesn’t have a lot of patience, but he learned through this experience that taking time at the beginning can pay off at the end.

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

Uncomfortably. He’s really not a children kind of guy.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Ready to go! He’s up at first light for a run and then is ready for work.

Can he use chopsticks?

Yes. He does business all over the world and so has accustomed himself to cultural mores. He  might  not think about food, but he thinks about his customers.

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

Yes, black.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Wall Street Journal, iBendPipe, stock market reports, Electrical Calc Elite, TheStreet

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

None of the above. When he might have been inclined, he didn’t want to spend the money. Now, he’s not inclined.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Personal. Sometimes a driver.

Recycle or toss?

He has no idea. His housekeeper takes care of all that. But he thinks she recycles.
