Is It True: The Prank by Lyncee Shillard @lyncee #RLFblog #RomanticSuspense

An interview of a lifetime turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse in Lyncee Shillard’s The Prank. Emilee travels to Alaska only to learn she’s been tricked, and the punch line could be her life. In this romance suspense, Emilee and Jeremy fight for their lives and their feelings.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Lyncee Shillard. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

The Prank by Lyncee Shillard

Genre Adventure Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When Emilee Sawyer learns the reclusive billionaire Ted McGraft is going to an Alaska animal reserve, she sees it as her break. An interview of a lifetime. When she arrives, she learns it was a prank set up by her cousin. Only it isn’t funny, it’s deadly when Emilee becomes the target of a serial killer.

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. The moment she arrives, he knows the smart thing would be to send her away. Instead, he lets the sexy reporter stay. A mistake that may cost them both their lives.

I live in the cold Northern Michigan (the place of four seasons – they lie! It’s just different levels of winter) with my husband. Our children have begun their own adventures, and just as I got into the swing of empty nest, then my grandson came to live with us. Now I’m doing 7 again… they argue everything just case you forgot. And I now remember why I eat doughnuts. When I’m not hanging out with the 7-year-old, I’m writing, reading, crocheting, and making self-care products. I also enjoy taking pictures, I’m not claiming to have a talent it’s just something I like to do.

Happy Birthday #14 Marketing for Romance Writers #MFRWauthor @MFRW_ORG #RLFblog #AuthorsKayelle Allen here. Marketing for Romance Writers started in 2006 and is still going strong. All services and membership are free.

It began because, like all my friends, I was promoting, learning more about promoting, and asking friends about promoting. All the ins and outs of book marketing were starting to gel and I was beginning to understand the overall concept. Even so, I had a constant list of questions. Facebook was two years old. Twitter had been founded that year. Pinterest and Instagram were four years away. How was I supposed to promote on social media? Did I need a blog?

So many questions

My friends all had the same questions, and we would email each other and ask. Often, I’d get the same question several times in a row. I found myself going back to my “sent” file to copy an answer and resend it. I was asking questions myself, plus I took time to go find an answer if someone asked and I didn’t know. Eventually, I got more and more questions.

It was Halloween, and I was busy with all sorts of details of writing, and I got the same question from two different people. I remember thinking that there had to be an easier way to do this. I needed a way to let everyone know what I’d discovered at the same time, and if I had a question, get an answer from someone who knew. Yahoo Groups was established and well-used, so I decided to create one that all of my friends and I could use together. We could post a question there, and anyone who knew the answer could reply.Happy Birthday #14 Marketing for Romance Writers #MFRWauthor @MFRW_ORG #RLFblog #Authors

I set it up as Marketing for Romance Writers because that’s what all of us were at the time. Our current members are not all romance writers, however. They come from all genres. Looking back, I’ve often wished I’d named it Marketing for Every Writer. Of course, then the initials would have been MEW vs MFRW and our symbol might have been a black cat!

In 2006, we had 12 members. Fourteen years later, we’re in the thousands. We now meet on IO Groups and our staff of volunteers produces a monthly magazine. We coordinate multiple blog hops to bring traffic to member websites, including Book Hooks and MFRWsteam.

Find out what Jax from Murder and Treats wears to bed. Lyncee Shillard "bares" all @lyncee #RLFblog #halloweenromanceWhen Jax steps out of his all work and no play mode in Lyncee Shillard’s Halloween romance, Murder and Treats, he finds love – and a killer who has made Lila the next target.

Lyncee, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Murder and Treats by Lyncee Shillard

Genre Romance Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Lila Maxwell is coaxed into attending All Treats, a Halloween speed dating event by her best friend. Instead of the soul mate promised one Halloween ghoul after another appears at her door until Cowboy Bill.

Jax Carlson has spent the last year focusing all of his attention on starting his own business. Hiring Lila Maxell over the Internet as his project manager was the final piece to his prefect plan. Set to open for business in three days, Jax plans on spending a couple of days on his boat relaxing. However, his friend Erik has a different idea – a speed dating Halloween party.

Jax has spent the night plotting the best revenge possible for Erik until Sally opens the door. The woman dressed in the pale lavender Harem costume ignites a fire that Jax thought was impossible without the aid of his formulated dating list.

After a night of mind blowing sex, Lila sneaks out before they exchange real names believing it was no more than a one-night stand.

Lila’s first day is full of surprises, the biggest being Cowboy Bill is actually her new boss, Jax Carlson. She thinks keeping her hormones in check while convincing Jax that love doesn’t follow a formula is complication enough until she learns the participants of the All Treats speed dating event are being killed.

Let’s bare it all and chat about what to wear

As the character, please answer at least six questions. You may answer all, or come back for a second interview and answer more of them. Your choice.

First, what is your name and how old are you?

Jax Carlson

What is the time period in which you live?

Current

When you wear something different, who’s the first person who notices?

My sister, Aimee

Tell us your favorite thing to wear.

I very much believe in dressing for my position of business owner

Does what you wear make you feel good, or do you dislike it?

I don’t know if feel good is an appropriate wording, it does enhance my image as a professional business man.

When others see you what is their first impression?

Handsome and successful

How do you feel about that impression?

It’s one I spent years creating so I’m delighted

What do you wear to sleep?

I do believe that this question borderlines on in appropriate but if you must know, I prefer to sleep in the raw.

Have you ever worn a costume?

Funny you ask that. I was just a cowboy. I didn’t enjoy it basically because I don’t understand why adults enjoy wearing ridiculous.

What do you wish you didn’t have to wear?

A costume – ever again.

Tell us what your author wears when writing about you.

It’s embarrassing. Doughnut slippers, doughnut leggings, doughnut hoodies. Who has an entire wardrobe of doughnut clothes?

If your author has a pet, is the pet ever dressed in clothing?

That is funny. She has a mastiff so no.

I live in cold Northern Michigan and have more hobbies than I have time for. Crocheting and card making are the two hobbies I ‘fit’ in while taking pictures is something I do with much more regularity. I’m far from a photographer, I’m just a woman with a camera. All the pictures on my blogs, website and book trailers are ones I’ve taken which makes updating them much more fun I also consider myself a foodie of sorts. I include food and drinks in my books and then feature them on Tasty Thursday.
Of course, reading is a passion but I don’t consider it a hobby as I feel it’s a basic block to being a writer.
Writing has provided an escape for me for many years from the pressure of my day-time job. In late 2012, my husband (of 25 years) and I decided I’d give writing a full-time slot in my life. I write romance suspense from sweet to very steamy. Also I LOVE writing young adult and do so under the name of Tasarla Romaney (the link to my young adult blog ~ http://tasarlaromaney.wordpress.com/).
I have an addiction to Diet Coke and M&M’s which if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’re aware of.

She decides to prove them wrong and books an extreme adventure in Ecuador. The hiking, kayaking, and camping she signed up for. She didn’t plan on the hot guide who by just looking at her made her squirm with desire and definitely not the drug cartel who wants them dead.

Nick Greco golden rule is never to touch a client. NEVER. But rules can’t be broken. Regardless of how hard he is.
