#Romance Lives Forever @SayaraStClair @JessicaCale #RLFblogMay 2017 marked the first month on the new WordPress site. Because the feed into Triberr stayed the same, the number of viewers did not decrease. In fact, I linked to a few more tribes that feature the romance genre, which gave RLF an expanded reach and views were up all around. Sincere thanks to Dee Owens at Personalized Marketing Inc for her hard work at making this blog look awesome and work so perfectly.

Three of the top four posts were blog related, including our special RLFblog Day One post titled Discover Authors and Books with RLFblog, RLFblog Moving Day, and the monthly RLF Gems. I did not count them among the top bloggers because all those awards would go to me. I’d like to see the credit go to guests. You are why I do this!

The Top Blogger for this month is Saraya St Clair, who wins a month of free advertising on the blog. Top Blogger of 2016 was Susan V Vaughn, who won a year of free advertising for 2017.

Each month, the RLF Gems post ranks in the top ten but is not counted, in order to focus on guests. The winners are judged by cumulative page views, including return and unique visits.

Congratulations to these fine bloggers:
1. Saraya St Clair
2. Kristina Knight
3. Laura Strickland
4. Rainy Kay
5. Yoshiyuki Ly
Honorable mention: Alina K Field, Livia Quinn

short historical romance, and readers fell in love with a secondary character,
Dorothea Sinclair. This book, “Words and Dreams” tells Dorothea’s

Book heat level (based on movie ratings):PG
Dorothea Sinclair has left her small home town in Maine and
come to Boston to begin a career as a newspaper reporter. But so far her job on
the Guardian has proved disappointing. More skivvy than reporter, she’s even
been subjected to a humiliating proposition from the chief editor’s son. She
needs a break but never expects it might come from a chance meeting with an
Irish ruffian.
There’s a great deal of injustice in Boston, and O’Hare,
embroiled in his fight for equality on behalf of Boston’s Irish, is well aware
of it. When he rescues Dorothea’s hat on the waterfront, he’s surprised to
learn she’s a reporter. And when she offers him the opportunity to state his
case in the Guardian, what can he do but accept? It’s the perfect chance to put
his dreams into his own words—and the only sure way to see her again.
