Know the Hero from Open to Love by Lyndell Williams @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #interracialromanceLyndell Williams, 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.

Open to Love by Lyndell Williams

Genre Interracial Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

The last thing Hafsah wants is to get wrapped up in another marriage, let alone with a younger man. Despite the desire he reawakens in her, she is not going to fall into another trap. Faheem is undisturbed by the age difference and undeterred by her doubts. He feels the passion surging between them and is determined to get her to open to love.

Know the Hero from Open to Love

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

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

When boredom hits, Faheem likes to flop on the sofa and pick up a controller. He slaps on a headset and starts trash talking his gaming buddies. FPS games like Killzone, Doom and classics Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty are his favorites. He gets to connect with childhood friends who have moved away are too busy, kill some bad guys and his boredom.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

While young, Faheem would watch his non-Muslim and some Muslim friends chomping down on fast food from places like Mc Donalds and Burger King. Since most of the food was not halal, he never ate there. Well, he got to grab a milk shape and some french fries, but never anything with meat. Even fish fillets were off limits because they were fried in the same grease as the chicken.

The fact that there weren’t any halal fast food spots, like there were the city, only made Long Island, NY suburban life more torturous. When the first halal fast food restaurant opened one town over, he became a regular. The more that opened, the more he frequented, chowing down on burgers and Philly cheesesteaks. Consequently, he chubbed up and had to restrain himself and hit the gym a little harder.

Faheem has gotten control over his halal fast food addiction, but he’ll still pull over and pick up a cheesesteak when his stomach growls when he’s on the road.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Faheem loves to dress casually. Henley shirts and jeans stuff his drawers, and he purposefully chose to work at an atelier style architectural firm so he wouldn’t have to spend days stuffed in a suit. While designing, he wears a dress shirt and slacks with a pair of Raf Simons Adidas sneakers, expressing his unique style as he makes his way to partner.

Does he know how to fix things?

Faheem’s uncle is a master contractor, who took him under his wing as soon as he could hold a hammer. Faheem loved building things, and he worked with his uncle to pay for college and become an architect. He can fix almost anything, except electrical. He saw an electrician get shocked and carted off to the hospital when he was seventeen. So, he will be calling someone if wiring is involved.

Although he loves being an architect, working on his new house allows him to put down the titanium drafting pencil and satisfy the builder in him.

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

Faheem learned how to cook from his mother. He loved spending time at the stove with her, and became confident in the kitchen. He even decided to surprise her and make haleem. He waited for a day his parents were out of town and pulled out the ingredients, pot and Googled the recipe.

Hours of chopping, mashing and YouTube videos later, and he ended up sitting in the middle of the floor with a pot full of lumpy meat and wheat. He gave up, threw out his failed attempt and cleaned up the kitchen, determined to stay in culinary lane in the future.

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

Faheem loves the kids. He is an only child and was always thrilled when cousins and friends came over. He was older than a lot of his cousins, which often made him a default babysitter, and he didn’t mind holding crying little ones and entertaining them. He will still scoop up a crying baby or try to soothe someone with a boo boo. When he walked into his fiance Hafsah’s apartment and saw her friend Rahma struggling with a fussy infant, he went into action and had the baby sleeping on his shoulder in minutes. He can’t wait to have one of his own.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Each morning before sunrise, Faheem gets up for the first morning prayer. It is a serene time, when he gets to connect with his Creator and ground himself for the day. The ritual wash at the sink refreshes him while the dark windows and dim lighting from lamps keep him calm.

He is a wunderkind, who has accomplished a lot through hard work and focus. Things can get hectic, and having the opportunity to start the day in a peaceful state is important for him to achieve his goals.

Can he use chopsticks?

Faheem would not see the point in learning how to eat with chopsticks to enjoy food. He has watched people outside of his culture take up aspects of it in an attempt to “go native” and seem worldly. So, facetious cultural acrobatics are not his thing.

Faheem is also one of those Muslims who likes to eat traditionally with his fingers when he can. He forgoes eating utensils whenever possible. So, he would only use anything if he has to do something like cutting a piece of chicken or eating soup. Of course, if he is at a restaurant or a formal meal, a knife and fork will be the way to go.

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

Coffee in a cup holder on the way to work is a good start for Faheem. His mother makes the best chai in the world, so he is very picky about the tea lets between his lips. Barely-hot tea with a label dangling from a string on the side of a paper cup is not an option. While he’s at the office or working on the renovations of his newly-purchased fixer upper, coffee flows freely. Once he gets to a pot, milk and some loose Danedar tea leaves, he indulges in a major comfort drink for him. He also looks forward to a super hot tea after prayers in the masjid during Ramadan.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Faheem keeps his finger on the pulse of what is going on in his field through social media. He follows architects on Instagram and Twitter. He also likes to have fun posting and responding to his friends on Snapchat and Tik Tok.

He doesn’t like dragging a laptop around, so he has apps like MagicPlan to measure rooms, Construction Master Pro for complex planning calculations and AutoCAD 360 to have his drawings available wherever he is.

Android or iPhone?

Faheem is the adaptable type. He can adjust to almost anything or situation without letting it get to him too much. He treats himself to a phone every birthday and has had both Androids and iPhones over the years. He usually chooses a device based upon its features and how good a deal he can get for it. After haggling with the brother from the masjid who owns a cell phone store, he’ll sync his iCloud to the latest Android device he got and tucks whatever he has selected without getting flustered.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Faheem sports a full and righteous beard with his long, silky hair. He grew up around his father and uncles, all of whom considered a bear a manly-must. As a practicing Muslim, a beard is more than just facial hair. It is an expression of his faith. Unlike some of the Muslim men around him, he doesn’t let it grow too long. He will trim it and keep it a manageable length for him.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Some of Faheem’s friends would clown him because he refused to get tattoos, but he never had an interest.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Living on Long Island, NY Faheem needs a car to live. He has a car to commute to his job at the firm. On weekends, he climbs into his pickup filled with supplies and heads to work on his house. He is ready to start a life and family. Building a home and courting Hafsah are the steps he’s taking to have one.

Recycle or toss?

Faheem can definitely do better in the conservation department. His mother is always bugging him to use the blue cans in the kitchen. He rarely does. He knows recycling is important, but it is not on his immediate radar.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Read the interracial romance My Way to You by Lyndell Williams @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #UrbanRomance  Lyndell Williams, welcome back to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. We’re excited to find out more about your book. Please tell us about My Way to You.

My Way to You by Lyndell Williams

One amazing year has passed, and readers continue to connect with Simon and Regina, the steamy couple in my first novel My Way to You.

As their clandestine romance evolves, Simon and Regina fall deeper in love. Making sure that things stay between them becomes progressively impossible, and neither knows how much longer they can keep Marcus in the dark and the world at bay.

I introduced RLF readers to readers last December. Simon risks his friendship with Regina’s brother Marcus by being with her. Regina, a social justice blogger, may lose her bread and butter by dating an Asian man and angering some of her followers.

I chose the amazing digital artist Taria Reed for the book’s cover. She is known for her quality work and specializing in diverse covers that include interracial couples. Before Taria created the My Way to You cover, all of my energies finding images depicting and an Asian man and Black woman produced nothing. I also had a tough time finding an artist with the expertise to convey Simon and Regina’s passions and desperate need to shut the world away. Then a friend recommended her, and she created a work of art that showed exactly what I wanted.

People absolutely judge books by their covers, especially me. I shared my concept with her, and she delivered in spades. The Simon and Regina on the outside reflect the dynamic couple on the inside, drawing readers into their powerful story.

So, let’s celebrate the My Way to You Bookiversary. Check out the new cover. Enter a giveaway on my site for a chance to win an author’s swag bag.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.

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.

Sweet Love, Bitter Fruit by Lyndell Williams

Genre romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

From Lyndell Williams, author of My Way to You, a new novel about keeping the flames of love and passion burning in a world determined to snuff them out.

Harlem lawyer Marcus Kent fights for justice while preserving a stable, passionate marriage with wife, Toni. Smart and confident, he has it all together—that is until his world turns upside down.

Not only is someone stalking his sister, but an intern at work is also getting too close for comfort.

On top of all of that, Toni’s renewed infertility obsession causes them to continually argue, adding more strain and cooling off their steamy union.

Struggling with insecurities and yearning to have a child, successful psychologist Toni Kent looks to her husband for support. Unfortunately, relentless distraction and stubbornness prevent Marcus from being there when she needs him the most and jeopardizes their happy home.

After multiple failed in vitro attempts, Toni is ready to try again, but Marcus is done. He doesn’t want another headache or more heartache. Will infertility tear this dream couple apart?

Know the Heroine from Sweet Love, Bitter Fruit

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

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

Ever since Toni married Marcus, boredom became nonexistent. They have a very full life together. If she is not helping clients at her private therapy practice, she is helping at the community center, travelling or spending couples time with Marcus. She makes sure to align their schedules so there is plenty of that.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Toni’s mother, Whitley raised her to be conscientious about everything that goes into her mouth. So, she rarely eats on the fly.

She packs her fridge and cabinets with health, organic foods. There is very little processed stuff. She plans every meal so it doesn’t have to be. If she finds herself stuck out there with a growling stomach, the bag of unsalted almonds and vegan protein bar will do just fine.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Toni’s fashion flare reflects her  Westport, CT upbringing and time living in Greenwich Village before moving uptown to Harlem when she married Marcus. She has a walk-in closet filled with designer labels to don for work, professional networking and partying. Whether a cocktail party or fundraising event for Marcus’ center, she is red bottom ready.

When she is home, feeling sexy helps her shed the day’s tensions. Clients dump a lot on her, so walking around their uptown apartment like a seductress with all of Marcus’ attention hits the spot for her ego. She floats around in her silk cami pant set, knowing is the one.

Does she know how to fix things?

Marcus is pretty competent when it comes to keeping things at home working. Toni concentrates of making sure he and the family are coping. So as far as fixing anything, she is really good at repairing a tense situation—that is—unless she is the one causing the tensions. She is the most stable person in the Kent family, but she is not a saint.

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

Toni felt really badly about how her need for some space impacted her best friend Regina. Sometimes, things are too hard to handle for even the strongest person. When the news that her sister-in-law was having another baby while she struggled with infertility tore into her, Toni headed for the hills. The guilt that she wasn’t there for Regina plagues her.

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

Toni and Marcus are childless, so their niece Justine is the only kid she consistently spends time entertaining. She likes kids, but when she is at the center, she is helping the adults, so she is not around them too much. She wants a baby, and will make a great mother, but kids are not a major factor in her life.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Toni loves her bed and fights hard to keep from being separated from it. She will snuggle deeper under the blankets while Marcus jumps up and prepares for his run. She calculates when he should return, and stays in the cushy warmth until the last possible minute. It is her sanctuary. When she has no other choice, she slips from the sheets and heads right for the coffee machine. No one better speak to her until that cup of brew is empty.

Can she use chopsticks?

Toni, Regina and Simon usually have a grand old time watching Marcus struggle with chopsticks. She shakes her head as her loving husband tries to balance them in his big hands, finally lifting some food to his mouth while he grabs a fork.

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

Coffee is on tap throughout Toni’s day. She starts at the machine on the kitchen counter and continues with stops at the local coffee shop near her office. She likes it with half-and-half and no sugar. She refuses to drink that Seattle stuff. How anyone can call it coffee is beyond her.

What apps would she have on her phone?

Toni’s phone is loaded with social media and calendar apps. She loves posting images and gliding down timelines for the latest fashion. She is a makeup and hair tutorial junkie, watching videos between clients.

Android or iPhone?

Marcus brought Toni to the iPhone darkside when they married. For her, it was easier to communicate with him. Facetime during business trips is a must.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Toni rocks hoops with her bob. She has four piercings in each ear from when she work rows of them and diamond studs during her teen years. They drove her mom crazy. Now, she will wear only one pair unless she is feeling nostalgic.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Toni has a needle phobia. The rebellious teen she was, she probably would have gotten a tattoo if she wasn’t so scared of being stuck.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

New York City traffic is not a joy to navigate. Toni will hop a train or hire a car before getting behind the wheel. She occasionally drives when going to visit Marcus’ parents or when they go for a weekend away from the city.

Recycle or toss?

She better recycle. Marcus is a drill sergeant about it.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
