Sha Renee, author of Forbidden Kisses, shares 20 Ways to Say I Love You #Romance #ValentinesDay #RLFblogSha Renée, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy Valentine’s Day! So glad to have you here! Can’t wait to read your thoughts on saying “I love you” three of the most important words ever spoken.

20 Ways to Say I Love You by Sha Renée

Valentine’s Day is here, which means many of us are thinking about love, romance and the best way to say those three special words to those who mean the most to us. Of course, it’s a good idea to tell our loved ones how we feel not just on Valentine’s Day, but on any day throughout the year. And while an sparkly gift or elaborate display of fanciness is sometimes nice to receive, let’s not forget that there are several inexpensive or free ways to show someone we care.
Here are twenty ways to say I love you s– not just for your significant other; don’t forget your friends, family members, coworkers and more.

 

1 Put a note in your kid’s lunch box telling them how awesome they are.

2 Leave a sexy note on the steering wheel in your husband’s car.

3 Buy your teen’s favorite candy bar and leave it in the fridge with a sweet note.

4 Buy coffee for your boss.

5 Run a hot bubble bath for your mom and add lavender bath oil.

6 Stop by your sister’s house and prepare a meal for her family before heading home.

7 Take care of your friend’s kids so she can go to the nail salon.

8 Pick up your grandkids for a sleepover at your house, so your son or daughter can go out for date night.

9 Clear the snow from your dad’s car before he leaves for work.

10 Call or text your grandmother and tell her about your job, your boyfriend or a movie you watched.

11 Compliment a random stranger in the Target check-out line.

12 Offer to help someone at work or school.

13 Buy lunch for a homeless person.

14 Visit someone in a patient care facility and read to them or play a card game.

15 Print out a cool photo from your phone or download from the internet. Add text and create a card. Mail it to your brother… even if he lives in the same house with you.

16 Draw a picture with crayons and mail it to a small child… even if they live in the same house with you. They love getting mail.

17 If you’re teen or a pre-teen, hug your mom… for longer than two seconds.

18 Initiate spontaneous sex with your significant other.

19 Post a review for an author whose book you enjoyed reading.

20 Watch this video and then kiss her like this. (note: this is a racy video!)

Christmas Vows by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #ChristmasRomanceLivia Quinn, 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.

Christmas Vows by Livia Quinn

Genre Military Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Love isn’t the only thing that happens when you least expect it.
Delilah and Luc and Samantha and Jed are looking forward to their special day, a double Christmas wedding at the Calloway Farm with their friends and family in attendance. And Beau and Maddie are expecting their baby. Great news, right? But after the women go missing with a storm approaching, and a desperate soldier threatens everyone, the men in their lives scramble to make sure Maddie’s delivery and the wedding come off as planned.
More than a Christmas novel. Stuff just happens in Rainbow Bayou at Christmas time (hint: weddings, births, kidnappings, and second chance reunions. . .) A continuing theme of overcoming whatever challenges life throws in your path.
Why did you write this book?
In the timeline of the series, the next event, a double wedding, just happened to fall during December and the Calloways’ Christmas reunion. Each of the books in the series features a veterans issue, and I decided to use a recently returned soldier to complicate the plans for the wedding and Maddie’s delivery. It was great fun to bring in everyone from the community to help out and deliver a couple of Christmas miracles.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read everything and write both contemporary and paranormal. For total escape I read historical romance and thrillers since I don’t write them.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
My latest favorite is Matthew de Clairmont from the All Souls Trilogy. OMG, you can’t imagine how hunky and smart and powerful and well. . .look him up in Discovery of Witches, book 1.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m just finishing up book 8 in the Calloways and will start on book 7 of the Destiny books next.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
When Love Finds You, book 8 revolves around one of the Calloway cousins, Sky O’Rourke, a former model who owns an air cargo business in Rainbow Bayou.

Livia moved from D.C. to Louisiana where the weather and culture of the region inspired her writing, including her storm faerie, Tempest, and her contemporary romance series, The Calloways of Rainbow Bayou. She’s stored up fodder from her jobs as mail lady, salesperson, plant manager, business owner and professional singer to share with readers. Think of her as her characters’ biographer! On the bayou, she is protected from the alligators and bears by her husband and feisty Pomeranian, Dusty.

Author Veterans are authors (or writers) who served in the military. We celebrate their dedication and thank them for serving.

Interesting Veterans Day Facts

  • Veterans Day is always celebrated on November 11th.
  • The original name for this holiday was Armistice Day. The word armistice means “state of peace agreed to between opponents so they can discuss peace terms.”
  • The first celebration was held on November 11, 1919. This was the first anniversary of WWI ending.
  • In 1926, Congress passed a resolution to make this date an annual observance and it became a national holiday in 1938.
  • The current name came about in order to honor all who served as well as those who died fighting. The change was legislated in 1954 by President Eisenhower.
  • Today we give special honor to the living and deceased servicemen and servicewomen and to the civilians that support them.

Invitation

If you are an author, and a veteran, let us know. We’d be honored to include you in our annual post. You can add your name to the list here. https://goo.gl/forms/OYzuWXrFRWanEysU2

Let’s meet Melissa Crandall from Naval Maneuvers, an erotic romance, by Dee S Knight. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Naval Maneuvers by Dee S Knight

Genre Erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Men and women of the armed forces experience desire and love pretty much like everyone else. Except, well, there is that uniform. And the hard-to-resist attraction of “duty, honor, service” as a man might apply them to a woman’s pleasure. All things considered, romance among the military is a pretty sexy, compelling force for which you’d better be armed, whether weighing anchor and moving forward into desire, dropping anchor and staying put for passion, or setting a course for renewed love with anchor home.

Introducing Melissa Crandall

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 33
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Jacksonville, NC
Profession: Doctor
Ethnicity: Caucasian
What do you look like?
I’m maybe a little more curvy than fashion dictates. I have auburn hair, shoulder-length and deep green eyes, and I’m relatively tall—around five eight or nine.
Who is the significant other in your life?
I recently met David Stimson and fell hard and fast, despite my usual deliberative personality.
How do you dress?
I like the classic styles—trouser pants with pleats and a belt when going out casually and soft, collared blouses. I have three distinct little black dresses and almost always wear dresses or skirts when going out for an evening. I enjoy heels because they make me feel feminine (and yes, sexy!) but am just as comfortable in flats. Clothing must be comfortable and I tend towards the flowing, draping types of materials of very good quality.
Please tell us about your education.
I attended undergraduate school at Georgetown but went to University of Virginia for medical school. I also practice here in Charlottesville.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I live comfortably but I am not extravagant. I enjoy good clothes and I like attending lectures and seminars on topics like archaeology and history (a must if you live in Virginia!). I own my house, but it’s modest, and though I have a mid-priced car, I usually bicycle to work.
On what special skills do you rely?
My attention to detail, empathy for my patients, and a quick memory. I use these things to give my patients the best care.
Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
Definitely pride. I truly like people and see it as my duty to serve them the best I can.
What is your family like?
I love my parents very much though I’m closer to my mom then my dad. He was a “lifer” in the Marine Corps, often away while I was growing up. I hated that he loved his job more than Mom or me because it seemed he was always away when we needed him most or wanted him there, like for recitals and plays. I saw my mom as a tower of strength because she held us together when I would have given up. Only recently have I realized how much my dad loved me, too. In fact, since I fell in love with David and then gave him up, I’ve learned a great deal about life, love, and being an adult—and all from my parents.

Know the Heroine from Dropping Anchor in Naval Maneuvers by Dee S Knight @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #miitary #romanceDee S Knight, 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Naval Maneuvers by Dee S Knight

Genre erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Know the Heroine from Dropping Anchor in Naval Maneuvers
Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Plays MENSA games on her phone. The girl is gorgeous, but she’s no dummy.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Carie isn’t much of a junk food girl. She’d pick up an apple and skip the chocolate.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
A uniform when working—she’s a JAG officer—and loose fitting casual clothes when she’s relaxing. Of course, nothing is best when she’s with her sweetie, Todd Baxter.
Does she know how to fix things?
She knows how to fix coffee, and she knows how to make reservations. Anything else, she hopes she marries well.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to surprise Todd by dropping in on him without notice. She was the one surprised, and not in a happy way.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Carie is not a child person. She keeps her distance when around children she doesn’t know. But since falling in love with Todd, she can finally see children in her future.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
So ready for action if Todd wakes her up. Otherwise, she’s one of those people who annoyingly wakes up with a sunny attitude and keeps it all day. That doesn’t mean that she doesn’t turn into a shark when she’s handling a trial. The only thing she likes better than being with Todd is winning her cases.
Can she use chopsticks?
She can but wonders why she should. It was fun when she was going out with college pals, but now, what’s the point? Food takes just as good using a fork.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Coffee? You mean life’s blood? Yes!! She drinks it often and she drinks it Navy strong!
What apps would she have on her phone?
The aforementioned MENSA games, Kindle, the Weather app, Google and Google maps, and email so she can stay in touch with the office. Carie prefers to interact with people rather than her phone, so she really only uses it when she has to or there is absolutely nothing else to do.
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Earrings, even though while in uniform they have to be posts and demure.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
She has an intriguing tattoo of a dragon on her lower back, the result of a game she played in college. Todd is especially interested in finding out about her dragon.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
She doesn’t mind public transportation but usually her job requires her to be flexible in getting around so she drives herself.
Recycle or toss?
Definitely recycle. She’s responsible and civic-minded.
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Weighing Anchor (allowing a ship to move forward by retrieving the anchor): A professional woman sworn to avoiding all things military finds herself in love with a lieutenant commander in the Navy. Love won’t conquer all if she allows her childhood memories to eclipse future happiness.
Dropping Anchor (securing movement by dropping the anchor): Two people find (surprisingly) that they are both in the Navy and love their chosen professions–until one turns out to be an officer but not a gentleman and the other is a gentleman but not an officer.
Anchor Home (safe, smooth sailing): When two former lovers find each other after more than a decade, will a long-hidden secret threaten the course of a rekindled romance or be the cause of it?

Introducing Todd Baxter

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 38
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Asheville, NC
Profession: Super Chief in the U.S. Navy
Ethnicity: Caucasian
What do you look like?
Dark gray eyes, over six feet tall, pretty strong physique, but not bulked up, auburn hair that’s showing a little silver now, usually kept military short, clean-shaven. And, uh, I’ve been told I have a pretty great package. Not that I’d say so myself… ;)
Who is the significant other in your life?
Lieutenant Commander Carissa Walker, U.S.N.
How do you dress?
During work I’m in uniform–usually khaki shirt and trousers, shined shoes, garrison cap (wide black brim with flat top). Off duty, I’m a beach guy, in jeans and tee shirts, loafers or sneakers.
Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
I’m a great mechanic and my degrees in engineering help me know the best paths to take to solve problems that arise in the boiler room, where I work. I don’t take pride in these skills exactly, but I’m happy I have them because they make me the best Super Chief I can be, both for the Navy and for my men. It’s all about them.
Are you close to family?
I love my family, though I don’t get home to Carolina to see them often. My brother was ten years older than I, so he amusingly tolerated me and I hero-worshipped him. My sister, who lives in Norfolk where I’m stationed now, is more an annoyance than friend but only because she thinks I need her to run my life. I grew up knowing I was loved, with two parents who are still married and who allowed me to be a boy and get into scrapes while being there to help me out. I was lucky.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
My brother. He’s the reason I joined the Navy, a life that gave me every satisfaction a man could dream of–until Carie came along, of course. My brother was a chief in the Navy. I wanted to honor his memory by becoming one, too. I’ve missed him every day he’s been gone.
What would help you face hardship and meet any challenge?
There are a lot of things, actually. First, education. That provides the foundation for most challenges at work. Then, as greatly, training. The Navy has invested a lot of time and money in training me to respond quickly and correctly to problems. Support of my men and superiors keeps me steady, and my desire to serve them, the Navy, and America keeps me going when I might want to stop. And lastly, Carie’s love. It sounds sappy, but I’d go through fire for her and any children that might be in our future. Keeping her love and showing her love is the challenge I will always strive to meet. *laughing* Does that make me a wuss? Yeah, I guess, but that’s okay.
If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
At the risk of sounding like a Miss America candidate, peace. Some people might think that the military are a bunch of war mongers, but hell, who do they think has to go and fight wars? The people who fight are the ones least likely to want unrest. I’d love for the day to come when people go to sea to sail around and have fun rather than go as a symbol of power. However, as long as there is no overriding peace, the U.S. Navy will protect and serve. Count on it.
