Naughty Heroes: In and Out of Uniform by the Naughty Literati @NaughtyLiterati #RLFblog #NewRelease #militaryromance NJ Walters, 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 new Naughty Literati book.

Naughty Heroes: In and Out of Uniform by the Naughty Literati

Genre Contemporary Military Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marine On A Mission
NJ Walters

When Mitch McCoy left rural Kentucky to join the U.S. Marines he never thought he’d return. Now he’s undercover with a state drug task force. He’s not only facing his past, but also Sara Hawkins, the woman who broke his heart. This investigation will risk their lives and their hearts.

Sex Bomb
Nicole Austin

From first sight I knew Marine Lieutenant Harlie Savage wasn’t fragile like a flower—she was fragile like a bomb. Definitely not some princess who needed to be saved, either. She was a queen who only lacked a sword, and I vowed to be her weapon.

Her Soldier Of Fortune
Belle Scarlett

Leia has no idea who ex-Marine Major Tate McIntyre is when he saves her life in a dark alley. Yet Tate’s certain Leia is his to have, hold, and protect. He vows to keep her safe at any cost. His only price is her heart. Semper Fi!

The Night Watchman
Katherine Kingston

A disabled vet rescues a woman on a mission to collect evidence, saving her from the men chasing her. As Jace and Shannon race to survive and outwit a traitor, a deep connection grows between them. But staying alive long enough to explore the attraction will take everything they’ve got.

Military Blues
Elizabeth Lapthorne

Luke is struggling to recover from a career shattering IED blast that sees him permanently discharged. Milly’s career self-destructed and she’s moved cities in the hopes of starting again. Can this new life and new relationship be a second chance for them both?

Why did you write this book?

I’m thrilled to be approached to be a part of this boxed set with the other members of the Naughty Literati. Military men and women lend themselves to romance novels. I had such fun writing Marine on a Mission, a action-packed, sexy novella. And you can pre-order it for the special price of 99-cents. Price will go up after release.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, of course. Within the genre, I love to read contemporary, romantic suspense, historical, paranormal, and even some fantasy. One of the things I love about the genre—it has something for everyone.

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

It’s pretty much impossible to pick just one character. I have so many favorites. One of my favorite couples has to be Eve Dallas and Roarke from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. They are seriously badass, but far from perfect. Watching the evolution of their relationship over so many books has been a wonderful journey. I grab these books as soon as they’re released.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on a new paranormal series for one of my publishers. Should have several books in the series releasing in 2020. I’m really excited about it.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

As I said, you’ll see two, possibly three books in a new paranormal series releasing in 2020. (More details when I get the final blurbs and dates.) I’m also part of the Naughty Temptations: Collection Four releasing in February. That contains two novellas that have been unavailable for some time. That’s all I have nailed down for now.

Based on a true story: The Rigel Affair by LM Hedrick @lmhedrick #RLFblog #Thriller #RomanceLM Hedrick, 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.

The Rigel Affair by LM Hedrick

Genre Thriller Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.
Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother’s friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family’s stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.
After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn’t—sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes… Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.
Charlie’s letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?
The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.

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.

A few years ago, Dee S Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex. Writing was so much fun Dee decided to keep at it. That’s how she spends her days. Her nights? Well, she’s lucky that her dream man, childhood sweetheart, and long-time hubby are all the same guy, and nights are their secret.
