Sometimes the sweetest beginnings come from bitter endings…

Juliet Monroe’s comfortable world has been turned upside down. She’s struggling to leave her trophy wife identity behind and make ends meet as a full-time event planner. When her handsome new neighbor needs to throw the perfect birthday party for his niece, Juliet offers her services. If she pulls this off, maybe she can get her life back on track. But to do so, she’ll need the help of the Cupcake Posse. Too bad her friends are grappling with problems of their own:

Missy’s recovering from injuries; Nell’s trying to thwart her mother’s matchmaking efforts; Selena’s husband wants her to work less when she needs to do more; and Bria’s facing obstacles she never anticipated trying to save her late aunt’s bakery.

Join the Cupcake Posse as they work together to navigate the difficulties of life, loss, and love. They continue to rely on each other, never losing sight of the importance of friendship and family, but will that be enough to save the Berry Lake Cupcake Shop?

Five days before Christmas, an old flame of the Sheriff’s returns to Saddle Creek, Wyoming to convince him to run away with her and take all his wife’s money with them. She disappears quickly and, in her haste, leaves something behind.

While searching for Christmas decorations in the attic of the Travis B&B, the owner, Deputy Ronnie Travis Rogers finds a hidden trunk that belonged to her late Aunt Sally. What she finds inside is a mystery that could change the entire dynamics of her family. Will she pursue it? Or keep it a secret?

After years of working on Christmas Eve, the Sheriff is finally able to attend the annual Christmas Eve celebration with his three best friends who he considers them his brothers (from another mother) and their growing families at Rosie’s Diner. Mitch and Ronnie return to their home with the promise of love, joy and happiness; the true meaning of Christmas.

Sheriff Mitch Rogers and his new wife, Deputy Ronnie Travis Rogers, Owner of the Travis B&B in Saddle Creek, Wyoming, share their First Christmas together with an unexpected gift left behind by an old flame of the Sheriff’s.

The Christmas Kiss by Augustina Van HovenIt's time for a Christmas Romance - 6 authors share their best #RLFblog #ChristmasRomance @loreleiconfer @AugustinaVHoven @TheCaroCarson @MelissaMcClone @KatyEeten

What happens under the mistletoe…

When a sledding accident catapults governess Annabelle O’Sullivan ninety-four years into the future, she panics. She doesn’t know how to get back to 1925, and she doesn’t know how to survive in the twenty-first century. Annabelle must depend on the kindness of a stranger and his daughter, and she repays that kindness the only way she knows how: by making a home. The longer she stays, the less she wants to leave. But can she trust this stranger with her life?

Since the death of his wife, Daniel Wagner has shut down his heart to everyone except his daughter, Olivia. Other women—including some of his employees at the ski lodge he manages—have angled for his attention. But Daniel found avoidance easy, until he was forced to rescue an unconscious woman lying in a snowdrift by the side of the road. Although the stranger seems to have no past, Daniel soon finds himself thinking about a present—and a future—with her.

It doesn’t help that her ex is on the plane, seemingly unaffected by their breakup. But the kind-hearted man seated next to her seems to have it all together—and he’s handsome to boot. She knows her emotional healing won’t come in the form of another guy, but will the source of this man’s peace and joy help Mandy find the Christmas she’s looking for?

CJ Hawkins is captivated by the beautiful, feisty woman he meets on his flight. The only thing is, she’s fresh out of a relationship, and he has no interest in being anyone’s rebound. But the more he learns about Mandy, the more he’s drawn to her unique mixture of compassion and spunk. Can he figure out how to make their relationship take off before this First Class Christmas is grounded forever?

Cupcakes and Crumbs by Melissa McClone @melissamcclone #RLFblog #NewRelease #WomensFictionFive friends reunite after fifteen years apart in Melissa McClone’s new romantic women’s fiction release, Cupcakes and Crumbs. Will their friendship be enough to save the town’s beloved cupcake shop?

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

Cupcakes and Crumbs by Melissa McClone

Genre Romantic Women’s Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

After life takes five women on different paths, a death brings them home. But friendship might not be enough to keep them together.

When Bria Landon and her estranged father each inherit fifty percent of a small-town cupcake shop, her dad hires her worst enemy, and first love, to turn the place into a soulless franchise…or sell it.

To save her aunt’s legacy, Bria needs the help of people who love the bakery as much as she does—her old friends who worked there fifteen years ago. Except each woman is dealing with her own problem:

Juliet, who’s trying to prove she’s more than a trophy wife; Missy, a widow who fears losing the job she loves; Nell, who’s meddling mother won’t stop playing matchmaker; and Selena, a life coach who excels at fixing everyone else’s lives…but hasn’t a clue what’s missing in her own.

Each woman wants to believe their friendship can overcome anything. But as the Berry Lake Cupcake Posse reunite to save their beloved cupcake shop, they soon discover the undertaking will bring more trouble than they expected.

Why did you write this book?

A designer had put the cover for sale (it’s called a pre-made cover), and I fell in love with it. The only problem was I didn’t have a story for it. So my imagination got cranking, and I came up with an idea. Only it was for a series about five friends in a small town in Washington. So I messaged the cover and asked if she could make four more. She said yes, so I bought it. Then I filled in the idea into something more, focusing on friendship, family, and of course, romance!

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read across genres, but lately I’ve been reading romance and all it’s sub-genre for the HEAs, which I just need right now. I write sweet, but I read both sweet and steamy stories.

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

I really enjoyed Nick Andros from Stephen King’s The Stand. Even after all these years, his character has stuck with me.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m finishing up two short reads in my Billionaires of Silicon Forest Series. I also have another book started which will be a 50K contemporary romance. It isn’t titled yet, but it also takes place in a small town.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Tiaras & Teacups will be out in February. That’s the second book in my Berry Lake Cupcake Posse series. Kittens & Kisses will follow that in May or June.

Christmas Hope by Caroline Warfield

After two years at the mercy of the Canadian Expeditionary force and the German war machine, Harry ran out of metaphors for death, synonyms for brown, and images of darkness. When he encounters color among the floating gardens of Amiens and life in the form a widow and her little son, hope ensnares him. Through three more long years of war and its aftermath, the hope she brings keeps Harry alive. Rosemarie Legrand’s husband left her a tiny son, no money, and a savaged reputation when he died. She struggles to simply feed the boy and has little to offer a lonely soldier, but Harry’s devotion lifts her up. The war demands all her strength and resilience, but the hope of peace and the promise of Harry’s love keep her going.

In the confusion at war’s end, will their love be enough?

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?

Snowed In by Shannon Nemechek

I met her, the girl of my dreams. We shared a kiss, we fell in love…and then I was deployed.
Now I’m back, but I’m no longer the man I used to be. I’m injured, scarred, and chances are I might never fully recover.
My heart still belongs to her—Annabelle—but my love for her demands I let her go. She deserves more than a broken man’s love, more than what I can offer.
But now, as I stare at her beautiful face, the sight of her cracking my heart in two, I pray I can be strong enough not to succumb to temptation. Both of us need time alone with our thoughts, so we came to the one place that made us feel whole again.
Now we’re trapped in her family cabin, and I can’t help but wonder whether being snowed in with Annabelle is a wonderful mistake…or a disaster waiting to happen.
