Bucket list of Mercy Rose from Mystic Maples @TenaStetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceWhen Mercy discovers the truth, Silvanus’ well-ordered life unravels and they’re catapulted into the past to right a wrong in Tena Stetler’s paranormal romance/mystery, Mystic Maples. Can they right past wrongs to have a future together?

Let’s meet Mercy Rose from Mystic Maples. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Mystic Maples.

Mystic Maples by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Earth/Fire witch Mercy Rose’s insatiable curiosity always gets her in trouble. After a break-in at her Colorado flower shop, and a court battle that comes to a screeching halt in her favor, she arrives at Deerbourne Inn for a much-needed getaway. Looking for peace and quiet, she finds just the opposite in a startling handsome but mysterious man and his dog.

Silvanus Forrest’s gypsy/fae heritage is a double-edged sword. The land he inherited from his parents is rumored to be enchanted. But when Mercy discovers the truth, his well-ordered life unravels, and they’re catapulted into the past to right a wrong. Along the way their lives intertwine, and they discover the true meaning of family and love. Will they change the past in time to save their future?

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: thirty something

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Scotland

Profession: Florist/witch

Ethnicity: Scotish

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I guess you’d say, I’m tall and willowy. My reddish blonde hair falls below my shoulders is curly and unruly. One thing you will never miss is I have one emerald green eye and one bright blue eye.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I have a degree in plant genetics, botany and biology. I have spent most of my adult life studying and creating unique plants and flowers through splicing and grafting. Maybe a little magic. I came to Deerbourne Inn to relax and regroup after my prize creation, a flower, was stolen from my sister and my flower shop in Colorado. The perp was another flower store owner. What a sleeze. We won the court case, but my creative magic took a major hit. The other defining thing about me, is I have an insatiable curiosity which has gotten me into trouble since I was a toddler. This time I got caught trespassing on enchanted land under the full moon. But the draw was intense.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Silvanus Forrest. He has lots of secrets but most of all His Fae/Gypsy blood has been a thorn in his side. So you see we have lots in common.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

Bucket list of Mercy Rose from Mystic Maples @TenaStetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance

What is your birth order?

There is only me and my sister. I’m the youngest.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

My magic. It led to lots of interesting events coupled with my curiosity in my youth.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Oh, pizza is my favorite food group. LOL Best part you can eat it on the run when something happens you just gotta check out. I like lots of sauce, cheese and ground beef. Oh and whole wheat crust is a must.

Tell us about your best friend.

Well, that would be my sister Hope. We own Magic Mountain Floral in Colorado. We inherited it from our parents. They are retired and spend half the year in Colorado and half the year in Scotland at the family castle. Hope is married to a mortal and they have two children, a boy and a girl who inherited our powerful magic. They are a real problem at times. Her poor husband…. Well that’s a story for another time.LOL

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Hawaii – the beautiful beaches and ocean. The temporate weather. I’d love to have a cottage on the beach, go for a run as the sun is coming up and relax.

Ireland. Love to see the castle ruins, compare them to our Scottish ones. Again look over the towering cliffs to the sea. Yes, I know Scotland has them too, but…

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

I can’t really think of any where. I’ve always worked or was a student, not much time for anything else. But things are changing.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

Steve Jobs of Apple,Inc. He was a difficult person but what a creative mind! Of course he’s dead now, but…

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

Then man who stole my creation. I did get it back. But the betrayal. He was my friend. We’d dated for quite a while. When it came down to it, he only wanted me for my abilities.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

Back to when Steve Jobs was alive. I’d love to be a fly on the wall of his R&D department at Apple.

Meet Mercy Rose

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

Mercy Rose was such a fun character to write. Mystic Maples nearly wrote itself. Okay I admit feeling close to her because we both have and insatiable curiosity that does get us into trouble. LOL

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?

She had one blue eye and one green eye.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

Yes, Mercy and Sil are planning a wedding at the Family Castle in Scotland, Rose Castle and may just solve the mystery that has haunted they house for centuries.

Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

You always need a feel good book with a happy ending. Being whisked away into a romantic, fantasy adventure that you never want to leave is great for the psyche. LOL

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? Yes, thanks so much for your support and kind words. Psst… Mystic Maples is on sale for 99 cents. Down load a copy today! I’ve lots of new adventures for you in the upcoming year!

Find out what Connie Acosta from Cruise Ship Chaos (Cookie Cutter Series Book 6) wears to bed. Karen Cino "bares" all @karencino #RLFblog #Cozy Mystery RomanceA long awaited vacation turns into an unsolved murder in Karen Cino’s new Cozy Mystery Romance, Cruise Ship Chaos. Getting close to the killer puts their own lives in danger. Will they be able to solve the case before they become the next victims?

Karen Cino, 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.

Cruise Ship Chaos (Cookie Cutter Series Book 6) by Karen Cino

Genre Cozy Mystery Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG 17

Connie and Sara go on a cruise with their detective boyfriends. This is the first time Connie is on a cruise. Even though she was reluctant at first, she quickly settles into their suite. This trip was about relaxing and not worrying about solving murders. However, as Connie and Brett are making their way to their room, the elevator door open to a staged dead body. Once again, the women are on the case. Will they be able to solve the case before they become the next victims?

Let’s bare it all and chat about what to wear

First, what is your name and how old are you?

I’m Connie Acosta and I’m 55 years old.

What is the time period in which you live?

Thank God in the present.

What is considered “appropriate” for someone of your gender to wear?

I don’t know what’s appropriate for a 55 year old woman, because I wear exactly what I want to wear. I feel comfortable wearing jeans and leggings.

How do you feel about wearing that type of clothing?

Leggings are the best. Can’t get anymore comfortable. In the summer, I love wearing sundresses.

Considering the role you play in society, what is expected for you to wear?

What I wear, is generally up to me. I bake and when I deliver my cookies trays, I’m generally wearing leggings with a long shirt/sweater.

Ever required to wear something you don’t like? Tell us about it.

Yes. On this trip, I’m required to wear a dress/gown with shoes in the formal dining room. No one wears gowns in this day and age and I felt like my grandmother on “The Love Boat.”

Do you make your own clothing?

Hey, my thing is making cookies and other baked goods. I don’t have anytime to make my own clothes.

Mending and laundry are chores for anyone. Do you do it or someone else?

I do my own laundry. I’d hate to have someone else touch my intimates. Mending means I go out and buy something new.

What determines the type of clothing you buy? (example, money, fashion, job)

Money determines what store I go to. But since I’m baking most of the time, I don’t go overboard in buying designer clothes.

When you wear something different, who’s the first person who notices?

My boyfriend Brett. He always knows when I bought something new. If it’s not shoes, it’s perfume.

Tell us your favorite thing to wear.

In the winter I love wearing jeans and sweaters and in the summer sundresses and dressy flip-flops.

What kind of shoes or boots do you wear?

I absolutely love boots and shoes. I have them in every color. My closet looks like a shoe warehouse. But my favorite boots are my black thigh highs. And shoes, I don’t have a favorite. I love them all!

Does what you wear make you feel good, or do you dislike it?

I feel great when I get dressed up in what I call my play clothes.

When others see you what is their first impression?

People find me as a warm and friendly person. I always dress up when I leave the house.

How do you feel about that impression?

I’m not too concern about what other people think. Some people put on a good show and when you get to know them better, they are horrendous.

What do you wear to sleep?

Don’t laugh. But in the winter, I’m sporting around in my flannel pajamas and the summer I wear pajama shorts and T-shirt. When I’m with Brett, I go bare!

Ever dealt with a “wardrobe malfunction”? Depending on your era, you might need to ask your author what this means.

Thank heavens no.

Does anyone help you dress (other than a lover)?

Nope.

What would you wear to avoid attention?

I’d dress completely in black.

What do you wish you could wear?

I wish I could wear and get away with a skin tight dress.

Tell us what your author wears when writing about you.

My author is always dressed, mostly in jeans. But if you look at her feet, you’d find her wearing slippers.

Bucket list of Gwen Taylor from Hidden Gypsy Magic @tenastetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceDiscover the consequence of awaking Hidden gypsy magic in Tena Stetler’s new Paranormal Romance Hidden Gypsy Magic. Gwen a wildlife rehabilitor, and Brock a veterinarian, discover the mysteries of magic and Gypsy heritage when he buys an old house in Salem, Mass.

Let’s meet Gwen Taylor from Hidden Gypsy Magic. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Hidden Gypsy Magic.

Hidden Gypsy Magic by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery/Timetravel

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

The Salem Wildlife Sanctuary is Gwen Taylor’s life work. Her Irish Gypsy heritage provides a hidden talent she uses to help the creatures under her care. But even her magical skills can’t help new rescues in dire need of veterinary care.

The opportunity of signing on as the vet for Gwen’s sanctuary dropped into Brock Scutter’s lap after he expanded his practice to include wildlife. The personal attraction he and Gwen experience is undeniable the more their professional and personal lives collide.

Touring the only “non-haunted” house in Salem they both feel a spark of magic. A trip to his family’s cabin uncovers a heritage he didn’t know existed. If they want a future together, it means facing the consequences of awakening hidden Gypsy magic and a race against the clock to correct past wrongs.

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 30’s

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Salem, Mass

Profession: Wildlife Rehabitator and Sanctuary manager/owner

Ethnicity: Irish Gypsy

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’ve been called tall willowy

I have long black hair with pink and green highlights

Large mesmerizing violet eyes

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I’ve worked for Salem Sanctuary since high school. When I discovered the owner/operator was cooking the books, taking money meant for the creatures in their care, I confronted him. The next day, he disappeared but not before he cleaned out the bank account. I couldn’t leave all those animals defenseless. Taking a chance, I went public with what had happened. An arrest warrant was issued for the owner, but he was never found. However, the people of Salem rallied around me and the Sanctuary. Donations poured in and I was able to keep the sanctuary afloat.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Brock Scutter. Gwen fans herself. We were introduced by Pepper and Lathen. Brock is the brother of the veterinarian, Dylan, in Lobster Cove where Pepper built a Wildlife rescue.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

Only child.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

I never had many toys. For as long as I can remember, I was always bringing home injured creatures with nowhere to go. Not popular with my family. Anyway toys were frivolous things in my world.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Pizza! Thin crust, lots of cheese, lots of sauce, and beef sprinkled around. I like other spicy meats, but they don’t like me. Ya know what I mean?

Tell us about your best friend.

That would be Pepper McKay. I first hired her as a volunteer at the Sanctuary years ago. Together, we’ve overcome so many adversities, saved so many creature’s lives, it’s impossible to put into words what she means to me.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Australia – They have so many different species of wildlife found nowhere else on the planet.

Ireland – I’d like to look up… will find out of any of my relatives are like me – rather than my immediate family. Enough said

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

I’ve not been to many places. So far I’ve not found one I wouldn’t return to.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

Terry, Binde, Robert Irwin. They are trail blazers in wildlife conservation. I’d like to have met Steve. But…

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

The damn banker. He did finally get what was coming to him. I don’t feel bad about that. And the original owner/manager of Salem Sanctuary. He is a terrible person.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

The day the former owner/manger of Salem Sanctuary ran off. I’d like to have beat him to the bank and prevented him from taking all the money. Sometimes I wonder if he and the banker were in cahoots. Never prove it, so best to let it go.

Bucket list of Gwen Taylor from Hidden Gypsy Magic @tenastetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance

Meet Tena Stetler

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

Putting a different spin on the Salem Witch Trials.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

Gwen has been a staple in all A Witch’s Journey books. She is such a bold character with a heart of gold.

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?

Her ability to see the best in most people but not in herself.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

Actually, I’m glad you asked. Chocolate Raspbery Magic (Set to release in April of 2021) is the fourth book in A Witch’s Journey Series and one of the One Scoop or Two summer series from The Wild Rose Press.

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?

Cozy Mysteries. In fact I have one finished (it will be a three book series), just need time to polish it and submit it to my publisher.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I was a DJ for a rock and roll radio station.

Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

Now more than ever, we need heart-warming, feel-good books to whisk us away from our new normal into a magical, fantasy adventure for just a few hours. Hidden Gypsy Magic and all of my books for that matter are a welcome stress reliever, if only for a few hours at a time.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? Thank you so much. I hope stories to whisk you away from your ordinary world into a fantasy adventure where you forget your troubles and stress, if only for a few hours.

Tena Stetler Social Media

Tena Stetler is a best-selling author of award winning paranormal romance novels. She has an over-active imagination, which led to writing her first vampire romance as a tween to the chagrin of her mother and delight of her friends.
With the Rocky Mountains outside her window, she sits at her computer surrounded by a wide array of paranormal creatures, with a Navy SEAL or two mixed in telling their tales. Her books tell stories of magical kick-ass women and strong mystical males that dare to love them. Travel, adventure and a bit of mystery flourish in her books along with a few companion animals to round out the tales.
Colorado is her home; shared with her husband of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-five-year-old box turtle. Any winter evening, you can find her curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn.
