Livia 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.

Men of Honor Boxed Set by Livia Quinn

Genre Contemporary Romance, Military
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Ridge “Take ’em off, Tucker. Tucker. Tucker…” Ridge Romano is an inventor, Ranger, mentor, the consummate planner. So how did he wind up on stage in nothing but his trousers and tie beside two cover models, with a hundred women screaming at him to take it off? It seemed like a recipe for harmless fun. One curious CEO follows a gorgeous redhead onto the conference floor. Add a hundred romance writers at a “meeting”. Toss in some false assumptions. Throw out a lifetime of good behavior and Ridge is up to his Special Forces tattoo in manure. Now to make sure no one finds out…
Luc Larue knows how it looks when the sexy cop and her partner respond to a silent alarm at the grocery where he stopped for a six-pack. Luc’s job with KPI requires certain…attire and equipment.
The tall, dark and deadly looking mercenary Delilah Burke confronts at the robbery scene is sexy as sin, but is he a hero or a con? Then, trouble arrives from his past and Del is faced with a choice to believe the evidence against Luc, or trust her heart.
Nick What happened? He’d been dodging the lightning, fighting the wind and rain, looking for a place to hide…when he’d seen the faint glow in the distance. There was no answer at the door so he’d broken in, entered… and there she was, a beautiful Valkyrie. Wielding her sword, she screamed as she struck him—for no good reason—and then everything went black. Everything.

Today’s featured book is A Journey Home, a contemporary romance by Angela Scavone.

Stephanie Tyler’s sole job is to fly overseas to war torn areas of the world to pick up and escort the bodies of fallen soldiers back home to the United States. It is a tough and emotional job but she is honored for the privilege, it also helps her to escape her past and her failed marriage. The flights have become increasingly more dangerous and she is forced to have a partner go with her on the missions to pick up the fallen. Much to Stephanie’s surprise and dismay she is partnered up with her ex-husband Captain “D.A.” Douglas Aston. From the moment Captain D.A. enters the scene he irritates her…it could have something to do with the fact he slept with her best friend while they were married. As they go on several missions together, Stephanie is forced to be courteous and professional with D.A. even though the very sight of him irritates her beyond comprehension. Stephanie’s cheating, husband stealing, ex best friend is then killed in Afghanistan and Stephanie is asked to escort her body home. While bringing her ex best friend home, to her funeral, Stephanie endures many emotions and begins to question whether or not life is too short not to forgive

Submission, Secrets, and the Soldier by Kryssie Fortune @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #contemporary #romancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Kryssie Fortune, author of Submission, Secrets, and the Soldier, a Contemporary romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Luke Roberts, a former army mechanic, has a new sub. She’s shy and inexperienced, but willing. As he teaches her about sensation play, she fears he’ll really hurt her and screams her safeword at him. Her reaction causes Luke to have a flashback. Although he’s clawing his way back to normal, he suffers from PTSD. Determined to get well, he contacts a PTSD specialist in Westhorpe Ridge.

Kathryn Johnson has visited a BDSM club three times. When she hooks up with Luke Roberts, he unintentionally terrifies her. She swears off spankings and goes home to Westhorpe Ridge. The last person she expects to see there is Luke Roberts.

Circumstances force them to share an apartment. Can Luke protect her when danger threatens? Or is she just a temporary sub in residence?

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons.

Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them.

Kryssie’s pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that end on a cliff hanger.

Her books are all stand alone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.

Catch up with all the characters from the Men of Honor series and as a bonus get a peek into the lives of upcoming characters…

He’s been avoiding homecomings and the biggest reason is unavoidable this Christmas – Madison Hart, who has loved Beau for most of her adult life. Whenever rumors surface about him returning home, Madison hyperventilates at the prospect of seeing him again.
Samantha Larue’s baby is overdue and everyone is hovering including Jed, who ended their relationship last summer because kids weren’t “in his future”.
Bad guys don’t scare Delilah Burke but Luc’s mother and five sisters have her stalling on setting a date to marry the man she loves.
Nothing could make Buffy Romano happier than delivering a few surprises and helping the people she loves find love. Luckily, a Christmas Eve miracle confirms what she already knows – that with a little nudge, all her love ones’ happily-ever-afters will happen in the not so distant future.

A Tribute to Author Veterans #Veterans #Authors #RLFblogThe History of Veterans Day November 11th

This day was originally Armistice Day, November 11, 1918. After WW1, which was the war to end all wars, Dwight D Eisenhower wrote, “It is my earnest hope that all veterans, their organizations, and the entire citizenry will join hands to ensure proper and widespread observance of this day.” Today we give special honor to the living and deceased servicemen and servicewomen and to the civilians that support them.

Love…when you least expect it.

As a teenager in DC, Livia tagged along with her Daddy to Redskins games and explored the rich history of our country, then she moved to the bayous of Louisiana where the weather and culture of this region inspired her writing, including her storm faerie, Tempest and her military heroes. Livia’s many jobs as mail lady, salesperson, plant manager, business owner and professional singer are the conduit her characters have used to relate their stories to her. Think of her as her characters’ biographer! Down by the bayou she is protected from the alligators and bears by her husband and feisty Pomeranian, Dusty.

Ridge, Book 1

Famous fashion model Lana Maisel could have had her choice of men. But she left that life behind at the ripe old age of twenty-four to pursue her dream of a photography and production studio and now she needs one man to be the face of her franchise. The Calloway women in Buffy’s life have always said “when you meet the man you’re going to spend the rest of your life with, you’ll know.”

Ridge Romano didn’t know what possessed him to get on stage during a strip bingo contest. He’d been in D.C. testifying before a Congressional committee on veterans issues, then he’d followed the gorgeous redhead off the elevator… and here he was… up to his Special Forces tattoo in manure.
