New Server — New Power

RLFblog has attracted so many visitors we crashed the server three times in the past month. On September 20th, we had no visitors on the blog so that we could move to a new, more powerful and roomier server. This should hold us for a bit! It also means I can add even more services. Look for new things in 2018, such as Free Book Friday and other goodies for readers (and authors)!

Not only does RLF post automatically to Triberr with a reach of several million, each post is also featured on the Romance Lives Forever Pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/romance-lives-forever-rlfblog/ as well as on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/RomanceLivesForever/ and Twitter https://www.twitter.com/kayelleallen When you like, follow and share it increases the reach.

The Alibi by Marilyn Baron @MarilynBaron #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome Marilyn Baron author of The Alibi, a new Romantic Suspense.

Why did you write this book?
The Alibi was inspired by my year in the Florida prison system, doing PR, not time.

What is your favorite genre to read?
I love any book about World War II, especially thrillers.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Gabriel Allon, an art restorer and an Israeli spy, a fictional character created by Daniel Silva.

What are you working on at the moment?
I just finished a women’s fiction with elements of historical romance and suspense called The Siege: A Novel, set in current day Florence, Italy, and New York City and the Greek island of Crete during WW II. It is inspired by a true story.

What would you do if you were in the wrong place at the wrong time—forced into the honeymoon suite with a man who wasn’t your husband while your hotel was under attack by terrorists? That’s how The Siege: A Novel, opens. When artist Theia Constas finds some vintage WW II photographs and love letters in a shoebox in her grandmother’s closet upon her death, she goes on a journey of self-discovery, where she finds love and realizes her passion through a link to her grandparents’ hidden past.

What books will we see from you in coming months?
In October, I will be announcing my involvement in a special project with a great group of authors that I’m really excited about. I can’t wait to tell you about it, so stay tuned for more details

Genre: Romantic Suspense, Crime Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Cozy Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Please tell us about your latest book.
In The Alibi, Merritt Saxe, newly hired public relations specialist with the Florida prison system, answers an urgent plea from their division’s director, Willard Ware Baintree. Following his orders, she finds him in the apartment of his mistress, his bloody T-shirt and the mistress’s dead body convincing her the criminal justice superstar is himself a criminal. The director claims he didn’t kill the woman and coerces Merritt into being his alibi. Meanwhile, as the director pulls her farther into his web of lies, Merritt breaks with her longstanding boyfriend and begins a steamy relationship with hunky attorney Israel Goodspeed, whose brother works for the director. Yet how can she trust Israel with her secret or her heart when she suspects the director has been orchestrating their relationship to keep her in line? Speaking out about the cover-up could cost her more than time in jail…it could cost her life.
