The Billionaire's Christmas Wish by Laura Haley-McNeil @laurarmcneil #RLFblog #NewRelease #SweetRomanceAn injured football player and a woman with a mysterious past can’t fight the feeling in Laura Haley-McNeil’s new adult romance, The Billionaire’s Christmas Wish, but find themselves fighting more than feelings when they’re hunted by the past.

Laura, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Billionaire’s Christmas Wish.

The Billionaire’s Christmas Wish by Laura Haley-McNeiil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

His life just got complicated.

River Jackson’s riding high as the Denver Flyer’s starting quarterback, until an injury sidelines him. When Coach needs a volunteer to deliver donated football uniforms to the learning center in The Grid, River’s glad to go. What he hadn’t expected was the tiny woman with sparkling dark eyes and dreams bigger than the old schoolhouse she’s renting. He has no intention of falling for her, especially with his career on the ropes.

After a disaster turns Soledad Marcos’ life upside down, she’s glad the learning center has given her and her daughter a stable life. She buries the secrets of her dark past and looks forward to the future–a future that doesn’t include a dashing football player and his desire to help. Her students love River so she’s forced to bury the unease that has held her back for years.

As Soledad draws closer to River, she learns his tough exterior masks a compassionate and tender soul she’ll resist at all costs, but turning her back on love means a bigger sacrifice that could cost more than a broken heart.

Why did you write this book?

Billionaires and Christmas make the season bright, so I thought what better way than to enjoy the holiday than by combining the two.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Anything romance, but I also can’t resist a good psychological thriller.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I find I have new book boyfriend with nearly every book I read, but for heroines, Scarlett O’Hara and Elizabeth Bennet are firmly emblazoned in mind.

What are you working on at the moment?

As yet untitled, Book 4 of the Beaumont Brides Series takes place in the Outer Banks, one of my favorite places to visit. Tessa receives the shock of her life when the company she works for closes its New York branch. She escapes to a beach house on Manteo Banks, and into the arms of Dillon Lowe whose dark past threatens to expose secrets she had thought long buried.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Never Kiss Goodbye, Book 8 of the Crystal Creek Series releases January 26, 2021, and Beaumont Brides Box Set Books 1-3 releases May 25, 2021.

QUICK

What’s your favorite book?

Anything by Phyllis A. Whitney, Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy

What’s a genre you want to write?…

I love reading historicals, but I’ll leave the hard work to those industrious authors who like research.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Keep writing. With so many books being published, the best advertising for an author is another book.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

Prelude and Fugue. An oldy but a goody. As a pianist, I wrote this based on some of my experiences, but this book is more fact than fiction and was fun to write. It’s available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007LQD6GG

Easy

Coffee or tea? I like them both

Sit down dinner or drive through? Sit down. I love conversation and a nice dinner.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? Actually, my husband does the laundry.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? I unload it only because does the cooking and we have lots of dishes.

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? If I didn’t have to drive, that would be fine with me, but my husband would be antsy so we find ourselves exploring whenever we can.

Talk or text? Talking is nice. I hate when I have cut a conversation short, though.

Emoji or smilie? If the emoji is available, I’ll use it. With all those symbols, I could never figure out how to make my own.

Read the new book Call It Love by Laura Haley-McNeil @laurarmcneil #RLFblog #NewRelease #Sweet RomanceLaura Haley-McNeil, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Call It Love.

Call It Love by Laura Haley-McNeil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

A kiss isn’t just a kiss…

Struggling actress Addison Duvall hustles background acting jobs at the Hollywood studios in hopes for her big break. When she’s cast as the stand in for the lead actress in a blockbuster spy film, she can’t believe her luck. The surprises rush in―her first test shot is with Hollywood heartthrob Spencer Kingsley. Her even bigger surprise is when the director yells, “Action!” and Spencer presses his lips to hers in a kiss.

Behind Spencer’s Hollywood façade hides the secret pain no one suspects. He’s the first to take a risk except when it comes to his heart. He can’t deny he and Addison have chemistry―chemistry onscreen and off―and he’s tempted to lower his guard. She seems real, not like the women he usually meets.

Once Addison’s star rises, so do Spencer’s doubts. She’s no different than the others looking for the connection to catapult their careers. He won’t let another woman damage his heart. His decision made, Spencer wishes her success.

But it’s already too late. How does he heal this Addison shaped hole in his heart? Should he risk more heartbreak for another chance at love?

Wherever Love Finds You, Book 1

When Love Whispers, Book 2

Call It Love, Book 3

If you love sweet romance, download a sample or buy Call It Love now.

Why did you write this book?

Addison Duvall has appeared in Wherever Love Finds You and When Love Whispers and I knew the next book should be hers. I wanted this book to be a Hollywood romance, but I wasn’t sure what her career focus would be. As I toyed with some ideas for her, I remembered that many years ago I worked as an extra on some Hollywood films, so I dug inside my memory and began to develop Addison’s acting background and she became one of those background actors looking for her big break. And when she’s an extra on the same set as megastar Spencer Kingsley, sparks fly.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Anything romance. I love a conflict between two larger than life characters that appears insurmountable until one of them is faced with the decision of what’s more important―the reason the characters stepped into this story or the love they know they can’t live without.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I can only pick one? That’s difficult. Different characters resonate with me for different reasons. Lauren Gibbs in Ever After by Karen Kingsbury is a memorable one. She’s determined in her convictions until she has to make the decision of what means more to her―her goals or being with the only man who’s ever made her happy.

What are you working on at the moment?

It’s been two years since I’ve written a Crystal Creek book, and I’ve finally had a chance to revisit that Colorado town and the Whitlochs. Their cousin, Eli Merrick, was recently discharged from the marines and is returning to his first love―traveling the country to enter saddle bronc competitions at rodeos. Pregnant Lily Harkins has escaped an abusive marriage. When these characters meet, they have to decide what’s really important.

This book has been a blast to research and I’ve met some amazing people who’ve taught me a lot about rodeos. Even though I’ve attended rodeos there was a ton of information I didn’t know so it was great to learn the behind-the-scenes information that I can reveal in this book.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The Billionaire’s Christmas Gift, Book 1 of the Christmas Billionaires Series will be released this fall, and hopefully the 2nd book in the series, as yet untitled, along with Book 8 of the Crystal Creek Series, as yet untitled.

Christmastime on Donner’s Mountain by Laura Strickland

Love Christmas Romance? Authors share their best @laurarmcneil @LauraSt05038951 @melissamcclone #ChristmasRomance #RLFblogFor most of her life, Becca Monroe’s been running. The urge to see what lay beyond the next horizon took her away from Donner’s Mountain and the man she loved. Now, back for what will surely be her grandfather’s last Christmas, she’s caught in a tangle of unresolved emotions that leave her torn between the impulse to flee and the desire to stay.

Jack Donner never stopped loving Becca, even though she deserted him. Better than anyone else, he knows how cruel it would be to fetter her wild spirit, and he doubts she could ever be happy living in one place, on his mountain.

Can memories of Christmases past remind Becca what truly matters? And can love convince Jack to give her one more chance, even if it means risking his battered heart?

Love Christmas Romance? Authors share their best @laurarmcneil @LauraSt05038951 @melissamcclone #ChristmasRomance #RLFblogAt Christmas, sometimes even impossible wishes come true…

One word changed Wes Lockhart’s life forever. Cancer. Fighting for his life completely flipped his priorities, making him realize he wanted—no, needed—to use his billions to help others find the kind of second chance he’d been given. The first person he intended to help? The beautiful, kind, and dedicated oncologist who got him through his treatments and ushered him into remission. And what better time than the holidays to become her not-so-secret Santa?

Dr. Paige Regis has spent her entire career helping others, often at the expense of her personal life. She’d love to start a family of her own—but with her current patients and her plans to open a brand-new cancer center, it seems like an impossible dream. It’s not until she reconnects with the charming Wes that she realizes he might just be the man to make all her Christmas wishes come true.

Can Wes and Paige open their hearts to the magic of the season—and each other—to get a shot at their very own Christmas miracle? Or will past hurts and doubts end their happily ever after before it even begins?

Know the Hero from When Love Whispers by Laura Haley-McNeil @laurarmcneil #RLFblog #sweetromanceLaura Haley-McNeil, 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.

When Love Whispers by Laura Haley-McNeil

Genre Sweet Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Sometimes, love comes in packages.

As the top ranked student at Charleston’s military academy, Preston Lowe excels in class, in sports and with women. Only Willow Dockery, a barmaid at the city’s trendy nightclub, sees the pain in his eyes when he’s out with friends having a good time. But Willow doesn’t know how Preston inwardly struggles to forget a past that could derail the career he’s worked hard to achieve.

Willow wrestles with her own secrets. After a disastrous relationship leaves her broke and disillusioned, she vows never to let anyone rob her of her dreams again. But as she gets to know Preston, it’s as if their tumultuous pasts meld together into something so startling it transforms their relationship and their lives forever.

Know the Hero from When Love Whispers

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

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

He loves to be comfortable, but as a military cadet, he wears the academy uniform during the day. After class, he can’t wait to dive into running shorts and a t-shirt. He’s a runner, and he’s running every free moment.

What is he like around children?

He isn’t accustomed to children, but there’s one baby he loves and wants to hold. He never thought he wanted a family. He’s determined to pursue his military career, but when he sees Willow holding her baby, the confusing surge of emotions make him wonder what he really wants.

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

He’s not a coffee drinker. Because he’s a runner, he drinks lots of water. Not that he likes water, but he needs to stay hydrated, even in a humid place like Charleston.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He has all the phone apps. One of his favorites is the food delivery service. When he’s studying, he’ll often miss meals. He has a senior project due and he’d rather work on that than eat. He’s an eat to live type of guy. Even though he’s a runner, he can’t resist a cheeseburger and fries. He also likes the flower order app. After all, what better way to make a new mother smile that order her a bouquet of two dozen red roses?

Beard or clean-shaven?

He has to be clean-shaven. At the academy, haircuts and shaving are part of a strict standard, but when he’s forced to spend a few weeks at Willow’s family’s farm, he relaxes from the academy’s strict code and enjoy a laxer standard.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He doesn’t care what he drives, but his mother, with her newfound wealth, greeted him Christmas morning with a new sports car. It’s a babe magnetic, which he’d appreciate if he had time for women, but he enrolled in the academy to pursue a military career and that’s his focus … for now.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
