First, We Kill All the Lawyers by Seelie Kay

Genre: Paranormal romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Someone is killing lawyers, but a particular vampire lawyer won’t stay dead.

Donovan Trait is a marked man. Flamboyant, stunningly handsome, and notoriously insatiable, his attitude and style belie his skills in the courtroom. No one survives a cross-examination at Donovan’s hands. His knowledge of the law and trial practice has accumulated over the years… and years, of experience. More than three hundred years. You see, when Donovan isn’t seducing judges and juries, he’s a creature of the night. And now that someone has decided that it’s time to kill all lawyers, his lust for attention has set him in the murderer’s sights. The problem is, vampires don’t die. Not easily, anyway. That’s good news for Donovan, not so much for his very human lady love, also a target of the serial killer. Will several unsuccessful attempts on his life expose Donovan’s true nature? Will the killer learn the secret that will guarantee a permanent death? Or will Donovan finally manage to put an end to the killer’s murderous spree and live happily ever after, with his lady love?

Why did you write this book?

I have wanted to write a vampire tale for some time, but had difficulty coming up with something consistent with current tropes. Finally, I decided it was time to break all the rules. After all, vampires have been around for centuries. Surely, they have evolved by now. And no doubt, they have many of the same societal problems that humans do. However, I also wanted the vampire to be a lawyer. The title came from my experience as a lawyer. I can’t tell you how many times someone would quote Dick the Butcher, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” (Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2.) They would laugh heartily, like they had just told a wonderful joke, but for me, it was great inspiration for a story. What if someone was killing lawyers?

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic suspense

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

Stone Barrington. The series by Stuart Woods.

What are you working on at the moment?

The first book in a new series, “Tillie.” Mathilda Spencer is an MI6 agent who specializes in getting royals out of sticky situations!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

“The Last Christmas” will be released December 2020. The first book in the Tillie series, “Lady Annabelle’s Perplexing Predicament” will be released in early 2021.

Tricia, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about A Whisper from the Grave.

A Whisper from the Grave, featured inside Holidays Bite: A Limited Edition Collection of Holiday Vampire Tales by Tricia Schneider

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Josie Drummond breathes life onto canvas as she paints compelling portraits and scenes of people who lived and died long ago. The images are inspired by the brief flashes she witnesses during intensely painful migraine episodes. She thinks it’s just her creativity at work until the man in her paintings walks into her life one Christmas Eve. And if what she sees in her imagination is true then… Antonio is no ordinary man.

He’s a vampire.

Antonio is shocked to discover his undead life portrayed on canvases hanging along Jackson Square. Even more mysterious is the woman who paints them. How can a woman from the 21st century know of his dark past in a life he lived hundreds of years ago?

‘Tis the Season…for vampires!

When the days grow shorter and dusk comes earlier, we may spend our time decorating with holly and mistletoe, drinking cider, and playing in the snow. But the creatures who stalk the night are in their element—and while visions of sugarplums dance in our heads, they’re lurking in the shadows, knowing there’s nothing so delicious as a vampire’s kiss.

So settle in for a long winter’s night full of winter holiday vampire tales from these New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling authors. Including paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and dark fantasy, this collection give a whole new meaning to the term heartwarming.

Because sometimes, the holidays truly bite.


What’s your favorite book?…

I have way too many favorites when it comes to books, but the first that comes to mind is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It’s a gothic romance classic that I always enjoy re-reading.

What’s a genre you want to write?…

While I love writing romances because of the guaranteed happily-ever-after, I would enjoy writing urban fantasy, too.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Read. Pick the type of book you want to write and read everything you can. If you want to write mystery, read 20 mystery books. Is romance your thing? Then read as much of the romance genre as you can. You can pick up a lot by simply reading in that genre. It’s a great place to start.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

The Witch and the Wolf is a paranormal romance published by The Wild Rose Press and can be found at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


Coffee or tea? Hot tea. Lavender and honey tea is my favorite, but mostly any green tea.

Sit down dinner or drive through? Drive thru. Sit down dinners are saved for special occasions.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? Fold it. I can’t stand wrinkles.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? Sadly, my dishwasher broke three years ago. I have to hand wash dishes which is not fun with four kids who feel the need to get a new cup every time they need a drink. But, when it was working, I would unload it immediately.

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? Driving for pleasure. I love to visit new places. Sometimes I go for a ride with no destination in mind. Just going where the road takes me.

Talk or text? Talk.

Emoji or smilie? Emoji

Will Pepper and Lathen make it to the alter or will life as they know it be destroyed?

Tena, 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 A Witch’s Holiday Wedding.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings):

Elemental witch, Pepper McKay and former Navy SEAL, Lathen Quartz have built Lobster Cove Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center on enchanted McKay land.

When the couple takes a much-needed break for Thanksgiving with family in Colorado, a Maine snowstorm fills the center with injured wildlife.

Know the Heroine from A Witch’s Holiday Wedding

Know the Heroine from A Witch's Holiday Wedding by Tena Stetler @tenastetler #RLFblog #Paranormal RomanceHere are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

Do You know how to fix things?

Yes. I had to make do with a shoe string budget when she worked for Gwen in the Salem Sanctuary for ten years. Now the knowledge comes in hand for my own Rescue and Rehab in Lobster Cove, Maine.

What are you like first thing in the morning?

Slow and a bit of a bear first thing in the morning. I’m a night owl by nature.

How do you act around people who don’t know what you are?

Friendly but reserved. No one but my close friends and family know I’m a witch. I want to keep it that way.

Do you let a worker handle things or do it yourself?

I’ve hired responsible workers and let them handle the tasks assigned. They know to come to me with any questions.

Recycle or toss?


Who is the significant other in your life?

Lathen Quartz

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

I live to get by comfortably. There’s too much unknown in the world of wildlife rescue to live extravagantly. The creatures in your care many need the funds more than you.

What is your viewpoint on wealth?

I live on a comfortable budget. I always believe in putting funds away for unexpected expenses.

Do you see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?

Oh definitely black-and-white. There’s wrong and right, bad and good. I’m aware everyone makes mistakes, I’ve certainly made my share. But when individuals are purposely doing something cruel and someone or a poor creature ends up paying the price. That is unacceptable under any circumstances.

If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?

That every mistreated animal or injured creature find safety wildlife sanctuary or be treated and released into their natural habitat. As far as people are concerned, I wish they’d realize that they are forever responsible for that which they have tamed.

What is your biggest personal flaw?

I tend to like animals more than I do people except the friends and family I surround myself with. I don’t trust easily. That trust has to be earned and a lot of people see that as unfair. It used to bother me what others thought, but now I figure it’s their loss.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Tiger’s Last Chance by Christina Lynn Lambert

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

While working a case, Sean Whitman is tortured for information, drugged, and bitten against his will by a shape shifter. The fallout leaves him jobless, friendless, and dumped by his girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, he leaves town and opens a private investigation business. Learning to live life sober isn’t easy, but he makes it to the two year mark.

When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him, accusing him of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, Sean can’t help but like the sound of her voice, despite her ridiculous accusations. He’s shocked when she calls him back with an apology then asks for his help as a consultant on a case. On the phone, her sweet, slightly Southern voice captivates him. In person, she’s unlike any other woman he’s encountered, and nearly impossible to resist. But could the sexy detective ever want a man like him?

After Nikki’s last dating disaster, the mountain lion shifter has sworn off men. Then she meets Sean, and with every second she spends around the tall, dark-eyed man, her resolve crumbles. But for some reason, despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sean seems determined to push her away.

An investigation into missing refugees leaves Nikki with more questions than answers. Her refusal to let the matter drop leads her to the discovery of a radical political group’s horrifying plot for dominance. Traitors are embedded within the very organizations meant to keep shifters safe. As the list of people she can trust dwindles, Nikki calls on Sean to help her unravel a web of deceit.

As Nikki and Sean fight for survival, his fear of losing her could become a reality. Will he get one last chance to show her he loves her?

A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. My stories include a fair amount of sarcasm, suspense, steam, and violence. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.

In Mermaids Marry in Green, a fantasy romance by Alice Renaud, a feisty shape shifting mermaid teams up with a warlock to capture a water monster, the afanc, who is threatening to flood London. But powerful warlocks are also after the creature…

Alice, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We support all furbabies, real life or fictional. We want to know all about your Fiction Furbaby, but first, please tell us about Mermaids Marry in Green.

Mermaids Marry in Green by Alice Renaud

Genre Fantasy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Caltha Dooran is the toughest, fiercest shape-shifting mermaid in the western seas. She has three Clans to rule, and no time for romance. But when a warlock, Jonty, turns up and asks her to come with him to London to capture a water monster, she can’t say no. In London, away from her duties, her attraction for Jonty grows… and they soon fall under each other’s spell. But will his past and her responsibilities pull them apart, or can they find the only true magic, the one that binds two souls together?

Meet the afanc from Mermaids Marry in Green

Full name: the afanc

Nickname: none

Gender: male

Species: mythical Welsh water monster

Physical description: the afanc has the head of a crocodile, and the body and paws of a beaver.

Relationship to main character: the afanc is rescued by the heroine, Caltha, and becomes her devoted companion.

Relationship to the villain/antagonist: Powerful warlocks are hunting the afanc because he has the power to make waters rise. Through him they hope to kill the current leader of the warlocks and take over London.

Where this furbaby came from: the afanc has lived in the rivers of London for millennia. He fell asleep centuries ago, but was woken up by magic. Now he is lost in a modern city he no longer recognizes.

What inspired you to create this character?

I love Welsh legends, particularly the creatures. The afanc, with its odd appearance, is one of my favorite monsters.

What does the main character think about this furbaby?

Caltha, the mermaid heroine, expects to find a scary monster. Instead, she discovers a vulnerable animal who asks her for her help. She is determined to rescue him and take him to a safe place, away from the warlocks who would use and enslave him.

What does the villain/antagonist think about this furbaby?

The warlocks who are after the afanc only want him for his power to control water. Through him they hope to take over London. Some warlocks, “the good ones,” would not use the afanc in this way, but they would treat him like a laboratory exhibit and study him.

What does this furbaby eat?

Mainly fish and crustaceans.

What is this furbaby’s natural habitat?

The afanc lives in lakes and rivers. He wakes up after a century-long sleep to find out that his river is now underground in London, and encircled by sewers. He is lost and miserable until Caltha finds him.

What does this furbaby add to the story?

The afanc is the reason why the heroine Caltha comes to London and teams up with the hero, Jonty the warlock. The afanc brings the two main characters together, and pits them against the villains who are seeking to capture the animal for their own ends.

What about this furbaby will readers like, and why?

I hope readers will find him sweet and unusual. He is intelligent, can talk and is devoted to the heroine.

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

Burning Ash by NJ Walters

Genre PNR

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

No one is more surprised than Asher, one of the oldest vampires on Earth, that he’s attracted to vamp hunter Jo Radcliffe. She’s smart, a talented slayer, and she’s gorgeous. Something about her pulls at him, like no one ever has before. For a man whose name strikes fear in everyone––this is something new and intriguing. And quite possibly deadly, if she discovers his secret.

Jo has two things in common with the handsome Asher––they are both slayers and someone is messing with them in a very-much-trying-to-kill-them way. She’s not so happy about joining forces with a dude she doesn’t know. But he’s sexy as hell and really good at his job as one of the Forgotten Brotherhood, whose business it is to execute misbehaving paranormals.

She knows she’s bait in a larger plot to harm Asher and the Brotherhood. And there is nothing he won’t do, no line he won’t cross, to keep her safe––which may be the weakness that destroys them both.

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What is your personality type?

I’m an introvert. I’m quite happy spending time at home writing, reading, and watching TV. I love to go to the movies by myself or take myself out for breakfast or to a coffee shop. While I enjoy doing things with family and friends, I have no trouble going to events or shopping on my own.

What was your favorite childhood game?

That’s a tough one. I had all the usual childhood loves like jump rope, Barbies, tag, and such, but I used to love pretending to be a teacher or librarian. I’d spend hours at that.

What is your favorite meal?

I’m a very plain eater and can’t say I have a favorite meal, but I do have some favorite foods—bananas, bread, cheese, and chocolate.

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

Like all writers, I started out as a reader. But other than poetry and a short story or two, I didn’t really think about writing until I was in my thirties. I was at a time in my life when I had some time and thought, “I could do that.” So, I did. I wrote two books that got rejected many times. I put them away and stopped writing for almost another decade before I started again. The book I wrote ended up being my first published book—Annabelle Lee (now available as Uncovering Annabelle) And the two books that were rejected? They were rewritten and were eventually published as Discovering Dani and The Way Home, the first two books of my contemporary romance Jamesville series.

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

Just write. It’s that simple. There’s no magic involved in writing, only hard work. It’s not an easy career, but it is a rewarding one. And don’t be afraid to grow and change. I began as a contemporary/contemporary erotic romance writer and ended up writing mostly paranormal romance. I’ve also written some sci-fi/fantasy books as well. Some writers find a niche and happily stay there. I find I need to switch it up now and again to keep the creativity flowing, which is why paranormal romance is so appealing. So many possibilities.

What are your writing goals for this year?

I admit that 2020 has been a rough year for me. For the first time since my career began in 2004, I didn’t want to write. My goal for the coming year is to block out the craziness of the world and get back to what I love doing best—telling stories.
