Demon's Grotto by Kate Hill @katehillromance #RLFblog #NewRelease #darkfantasyKate Hill, 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.

Demon’s Grotto by Kate Hill

Genre Romantic Horror
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Ben wants Laura to reconsider staying overnight at Demon’s Grotto, and he has information about the club’s history that should convince her. He tells her three creepy love stories, hoping she will change her mind.
Rise of the Creature – When a mad doctor brings a dead man back to life, only his beautiful assistant can make that life worth living.
The Demon Within – A man on the run stops to rest at a rooming house, not knowing that it’s the hunting ground of a gorgeous succubus bent on devouring handsome guests.
Don’t Cry, Wolf – An ad for a maintenance man at a bed and breakfast is answered by a former soldier who is harboring a hairy secret. The business’s lovely co-owner becomes involved with this sullen hunk who’s more than she imagined possible.
After hearing these stories of love and murder, will Laura decide to spend the night at Demon’s Grotto?
Why did you write this book?
I wanted to write a collection of short, romantic horror stories that were tied together by a common theme. I also wanted to include a different take on classic monsters, like the Frankenstien monster, vampire, and werewolf.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, in particular paranormal and science fiction romance. I also love historical romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That is one of the hardest questions to answer. There are so many great characters that I love. I lean toward antiheroes and villians. The fictional bad boys are usually charismatic and their flaws make them relatable. My favorite? I’ll go with Scorpius from Farscape, but it’s so hard to narrow it down.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve just finished a science fiction romance novel that I’m getting cleaned up to submit. I’m hoping it will be the start of a new series. I’m also about to start a short paranormal romance.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
At the moment I don’t have any release dates for upcoming books, but I’m hoping that will change soon!

Stressing Aaron Belton from Passionate Destiny @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #romance #paranormalromance #PNRLet’s meet Aaron Belton from Passionate Destiny, a paranormal 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 your latest book.

Passionate Destiny by Dee S Knight

Genre Paranormal erotic romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Margaret Amis-Hollings moves to an old house in Virginia, never suspecting a ghost has first dibs. Soon her life is intertwined with a soldier from long ago and with his descendant, Aaron. Living with a ghost is one thing. Dealing with Aaron is quite another. They share the present; they might share a past. Do they share a destiny?

Stressing Aaron Belton

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.
Please tell me about your hero.
Age: Mid-thirties
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Palmyra, Virginia
Profession: Former professor, now carpenter and historical restorer
Ethnicity: Southern gentleman
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):
What does your hero look like?
Eyes were the darkest blue, hair the deepest black, teeth the whitest white. And straight. Over 6 feet, muscular due to hard work and not a gym. Dimples.
Who is the significant other in his life?
Margaret Amis-Hollings, new owner of River Peace.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Relaxed backyard barbecue, with all the fixings and beer to drink. He likes smaller groups with close friends and easy conversation.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
He’ll spend some time playing with the children running around, stand around the grill with the guys and shoot the breeze, and later sprawl in a deck chair at the fire pit holding hands with Margaret. He’s casual and comfortable, but also ready to help out when needed.
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
He’ll mingle and mix. Even in more formal situations he wouldn’t be allof. He’s very comfortable with who he is.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
Beer. And not a fancy foreign brand. He’ll try a local microbrewery, but his usual choice is simply a Sam Adams or a Bud.
How much drink is his usual?
Aaron cares too much for family and friends to drink much. He’d never take a chance on hurting anyone through word or action by drinking too much. He might have a couple of beers but he’s just as happy with sweet tea.
The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
He wouldn’t go to hide or to avoid anyone. And he wouldn’t go to drag someone back. He might go to check to be sure they’re okay—and in the case of youngsters, to be sure they aren’t getting ready to make trouble. ;)
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
He’s definitely the guy others migrate to. He’s intelligent and with a good sense of humor. Aaron is generally a really great guy but in his mind he’s just normal.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
He’ll break it up. If the fight is verbal, he’ll try to calm things down by changing the subject. If the fight is physical, he’s big enough and strong enough to step in and force the combatants apart. At the kinds of parties he attends, there are often children around. Aaron wouldn’t put up with bad behavior around his kids or Margaret.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
He would definitely do the tossing.
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
Nope, he’s a family man—and he was even before he met Margaret because he has parents and siblings nearby. He won’t stay late.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
He might be exasperated but he’ll be polite and rational. He’s a scientist and engineer and staying calm and rational is part of his personality.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
He rushes to discover the cause.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
Stopping the brutality.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
He won’t hesitate to stop one person assaulting another. And if it’s a woman—or certainly a child—bearing the brunt of someone else’s anger, he’s likely to be a bit forceful when stopping the assaulter. Just to be sure he (she) stops acting badly, you understand.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
Aaron doesn’t just fight with his fists, he fights with his intelligence, too. So first he makes sure the person he’s tried to rescue is away. Then he might try a fast escape himself. He’s no fool. Staying to fight a battle he can’t win if the first victim is gone, if not smart.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?
He’s polite but not friendly. If things go too far he’ll be a bit terse and as soon as he can he’ll escape the situation.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
Aaron isn’t one to jump in and undermine someone else. If he can he’ll speak to the younger person privately or he’ll deal with things as best he can without making a scene. On the other hand, he won’t be taken advantage of by being in an awkward situation. If things pass the point of politeness, he’ll excuse himself.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
“It’s all mind over matter. Get the job done and then you can rest.”
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
“You can do whatever you have to do.”
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
Aaron has lived a pretty charmed life. He hasn’t had many upsets and no disasters that teach the hard lessons. But he recognizes that not all things are equal or fair. He changed his life in order to help make things as fair as possible for his family and community.
What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?
He’s a really good guy. Margaret describes him as looking like Superman and he kind of fits the mold. There are some genuinely good people in the world, and Aaron is one of them. But he’s still fun and interesting. And sexy ;)

The Witch of the Prophecy by Victoria Jayne

Divina’s had it with the prophecy.
​The vampire whose heart beats for a witch that belongs to a wolf shall save us all. He shall take his throne and rule over all kinds. If not, the vampire who belongs to the witch will end all kinds.
Divina’s not convinced the prophecy is about her. Her manipulative vampire ex-boyfriend, Rori, is reluctant to give up his love for her to pursue the throne. Meanwhile, the wolf shifter meant to claim Divina doesn’t believe in the prophecy. However, he does believe Divina is his mate.
With the pressures of the prophecy and the most powerful coven in the present-day United States, Divina is left to choose between complying with the prophecy and mating with Aric—or leaving it all behind to allow the catastrophic possibility of supernatural beings getting exposed to humans.
