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.

Charm Me by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Summer Dawn Rylie’s an extraordinary elemental witch whose troubled past haunts her. She’s created a calm life for herself teaching yoga and keeping people at a distance. Her life takes a one eighty degree turn when she enrolls in a women’s weapons class and meets ruggedly handsome Devlin Sawyer.

Devlin, a former Navy Seal, has sworn off women after two long-term failed relationships, but there is no denying his attraction to Summer. She intrigues him like no other woman ever has. Despite her attempts to ignore him, Summer is drawn to Devlin. His magic signature is strong, but he’s no warlock. Will Valentine’s Day magic find them a future together?

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: late 30ies, a lady never tells her age.

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Martha’s Vineyard

Profession: Yoga Instructor

Ethnicity: Irish

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall and more curvy than most. My curly shoulder-length strawberry blonde hair is unruly and I sometimes pull it up in a ponytail.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

After fleeing a troubled past, all I want was to be left alone. I took a yoga instructor position in Colorado Springs to escape the drama in my life, the last thing I need is complications with Devlin Sawyer, a ruggedly handsome retired Navy SEAL. But when I enroll in a women’s weapons class at Devlin’s state of the art gun club, that is exactly what I encounter. With my guard dog, Piper, I navigate the friggin perilous waters of trust, friendship, and learning to ski. Should I give love a second chance?

Who is the significant other in your life?

Devlin Sawyer, a retired Navy SEAL with a fantastic secret.

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?

I’m a twin, first born.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

Magic, you can do anything with it.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Pizza with thin crispy crust and lots of sauce and cheese.

Tell us about your best friend.

I don’t really have a best friend. I have always kept to myself to keep my talents from being discovered. But one of my employees, Josie is a close friend. She’s impetuous, fun-loving and dependable. She is estranged from her family as I am, so it makes us understand each other.

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

Ireland. I’ve love to explore all the ancient castles. And Australia. I love to visit the Australia Zoo.

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

Martha’s Vineyard. To many bad memories.

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

Devlin’s dad. I’ve met his sister, she’s a hoot, but a polar opposite to him. I’d like to see which of his children are like him.

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

My brother. Together we’ve destroyed our family.

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

I’d go back to the day I torched my brother’s vampire girlfriend and shattered our family. See if it could have been handled differently.

About Tena Stetler

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

Keeping it under 20,000 words. It was a special series put out by my publishing house The Wild Rose for Valentine’s Day 2016, entitled Candy Heart Romances. Required word count was under 20,000. I barely made it a 19,999. LOL

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

She is a feisty character. After I finished writing the book, she had more to say and insisted that I write a sequel. Charm Me Again was released December 2019.

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

That she had a twin brother. She had to torch her brother’s vampire girlfriend to save his life.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

Yep. Summer insisted and Charm Me Again was released December 9, 2019.

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

Sci-Fy time travel

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I was a radio DJ for two years.

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

It’s a short fun flirty paranormal romance with a happy ever after ending. Something I think we need more of these days.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?

I hope my books act as a stress reliever while you are whisked away from your ordinary world into a romantic fantasy adventure for a few hours. Thank you so much for buying my books. Psssst… Charm Me is on sale for only 99 cents for a limited time!

Read the new Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNR #ParanormalNJ 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 your book.

Fury Unleashed by NJ Walters

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky—but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.

Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer––that’s definitely too good to be true—she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.

Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.

Is It True: The Alpha Council Chronicles by Brenda Sparks @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #PNRWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Brenda Sparks, author of The Alpha Council Chronicles, a paranormal romance series now on sale for a limited time. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

The Alpha Council Chronicles Series by Brenda Sparks

Genre Paranormal Romance

Series heat level (based on movie ratings): R

In the shadows of the night, there exists a band of warriors–a group of vampires, known as the Alpha Council. Their vow, to protect not only their kind but the humans existing alongside them.

Together they will confront an extraordinary destiny of peril, passion, and dark pleasures in the riveting paranormal romance series, The Alpha Council Chronicles.

For a limited time, The Alpha Council Chronicles series is on sale. Each story is $0.99, and the entire series can be purchased for only $3.96

Is it true:

this is your first series?

Yes, in fact, while I have written a few stand-alone stories, this is my one and only series.

How many books are part of a series?

There are 5 stories at this time with one more in production. Alpha Mine, Deadly Alpha, Alpha Lover and Alpha Pair are currently on sale for $0.99 each while Alpha Revealed is due to be released in March.

you lost sleep while writing this series?

Absolutely! The heroes of this series invaded my dreams, specially Nicholai. I’d wake in the middle of the night and have to get out of bed to write down a scene.

you did research for this series?

I had to do a lot of research regarding Russian royalty because some of my vampires are descendants of The House of Romanov.

some characters in this series are not human? (pets for example)

Besides the vampires, the series features a group of demons who love to cause trouble and aren’t exactly fans of my Alphas.

this series has more than one genre?

No. It is strictly a paranormal romance.

you love to read?

Absolutely! There is never enough time in a week to read, but I do it every chance I get. I’m a big fan of paranormal and historical romances.

you are never late?

I’m one of those people who feels like if I arrive 15 minutes ahead of schedule then I’m actually late. Being late is one of my biggest pet peeves.

you love pizza?

Ummm…yes!! I’m a wanna be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

you love sushi?

It’s not my thing, but I love watching the sushi chefs make it.

you have a pet?

I do. Two years ago, I rescued a pair of rats from being sold as snake food. The girls are silly and sooo smart. It’s been fun having them around the house.

Read the new Romance Linked by Deception by Jami Gray @JamiGrayAuthor #RLFblog #PNRWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Linked by Deception.

Linked by Deception by Jami Gray

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

When it comes to the relationship game, she’s learned her lesson well…

With her ability to weave illusions, Jinx Thorne grew up running successful cons with her grifter father, until the day he taught her how easy it is to deceive those you love. Armed with that hard-earned wisdom, she retreats behind her emotional walls determined to avoid a repeat lesson. When she’s partnered with the seductively charming Rabbit, his friendship does the impossible, eroding her defenses and leaving her on shaky ground.

With his patience at an end, he’s about to change the rules…

As the PSY-IV Team’s tech wizard, Rabbit Tessier can manipulate all things electronic, yet that’s not his only area of expertise. As an acknowledged flirt, he enjoys his role as the team’s heart-breaker, but after he’s partnered with the intoxicating queen of illusions that satisfaction wans and he’s done playing games.  As they undertake a dangerous mission where things could go sideways in a blink, he’ll take the biggest gamble of all and lay his cards on the table.

When the mission forces them to play intimate criminal partners, will they risk the jump from illusion to truth as they race through a maze of conspiracies and lies before the clock runs out?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

I do actually. My first love is Urban Fantasy, but like a truly enamored stalker, Paranormal Romance is right on its heels. I enjoy working with PSY-IV Teams as it’s fun to mix romance and paranormal abilities to see what shakes out, but this year I’m working on a new Urban Fantasy series because I need a break from the emotional roller coaster that happens when romance is the main story.

And because I love dystopian themes, I tried my hand at a Dystopian Romantic Suspense series that somehow keeps getting put into Post-Apocalyptic Romance, which I’m okay with. Who doesn’t like the idea of love in the time of Mad Max?

How do you come up with ideas?…

I’m one of those writers who comes up with a character first  so my stories tend to emerge from there. I love gray characters, like the gunslingers of the old west who swagger just on the side of right. When your character has flaws, it gives you a deep pool of possibilities to play with. When I started the PSY-IV Teams, I was binging on military themed romance (one of my favorites) and I kept wondering what happened if you blended those elements with unique and unusual paranormal abilities? By their nature these men and women carry a deep-seated need to protect others, but what happens when that protection comes at a high cost? I really get a kick out of putting my characters through the wringer.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Creating characters my readers can connect with. I grew up writing in roles from my favorite stories for me (which explains the minor in theater) because reading was my escape. My hope is that I’m able to provide that same creative escape for those on the other end of the page.

When did you write your first book?…

You mean the one that will never, never, never see the light of day? Fourteen. I actually spent all four years of high school writing my first book. It was close to two hundred pages—handwritten and typed on an actual typewriter (I know I’m dating myself). I still have those pages and took them out during one of my writer retreats to share with my crew of ink slingers. Mortification was off set by much laughter, but it was freakin’ hilarious.

FUN

Leather or lace? Oh definitely leather, even though it chaps. Lace itches.

Black or red? Black, it goes with everything and doesn’t show dirt (or blood)

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton. Satin tends to turn into Slip-N-Slide.

Ocean or mountains? Mountains for sure. But if you asked my other half, he’d push for ocean. Makes our discussion on future living locations fun.

City life or country life? Hmm…I’m going to have to do country as I tend to be a homebody.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, preferably with a good book and/or my Knight in Slightly Muddy Armor.

Dogs or cats? Dogs, most definitely dogs. I have a starter kit of two right now, both fur rugs are labs–one white, one black. I adore my Fur Minxes.

Fated Souls by Becky Flade

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Shamed investigative journalist turned tabloid scribe Maggie O’Connell convinces her editor to let her go to Minnesota to research alleged werewolf sightings. Her first night in the woods, she gets trapped in an old sleeping bag, unintentionally attracts the attention of a bear, and is saved by the most unlikely of heroes: the very wolf she had come to investigate!

When she meets horse rancher Aidan Gael in the town market days later, she recognizes his eyes as those belonging to her champion.

Aidan tries desperately to avoid her; he both fears Maggie and fears for her. Neither man nor beast can resist her curious mind and courageous heart. One kiss threatens to break Aidan’s tenuous self-control but furthers Maggie’s resolve.

Danger lurks at every turn. The curse Aidan fights to keep secret is only one of the obstacles that will test the strength of their bond. Together they will navigate the violence of both nature and of man in pursuit of their destiny.

Becky Flade Social Media

When I was little, I thought everyone had stories in their head. I didn’t find out that wasn’t the case until kindergarten. I remember thinking that was sad; and that I should share the ones I had. I asked my teacher for help. I had her cut, fold and staple the paper into a suspiciously book-like shape. Then I drew the cover art and illustrated the interior pages. Finally, and most importantly, I dictated the text. And violà … a writer was born.
It took thirty years for me to get from that first attempt to published author. I think the road thus far has added some depth and experience to my writing. At the very least I learned I shouldn’t ever do my own illustrations.
A city girl, born and bred, I tend to place my stories in and around southeast Pennsylvania, or at least have a character or two from the area. Home is where the heart is and I make mine with my two beautiful daughters and my two grandsons whom make every day a blessing.
Making my own dreams come true, one happily ever after at a time.

Tena Stetler, 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.

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?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

Not really. I write Paranormal Romance but each of my books contains a mystery as well. I’m also excited to mention I have just finished my first cozy mystery. It will be a series of three.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Dreams, headlines, people watching or eavesdropping in a busy place, maybe a park, shopping mall, or a campground. Did I mention I have an overactive imagination, which helps with ideas. LOL

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Why write Romance? For me crafting a romance is all about RESPECT, TRUST and LOVE with a bit of mystery, travel, and suspense sprinkled in. Most of my characters are of the paranormal persuasion. I try to create a memorable love story with spice and adventure. I want my characters to grab hold of your heart and hang on long after you’ve read the last word and closed the book with a satisfied sigh.

When did you write your first book?…

It was a vampire romance. I think I was around twelve or thirteen years old. I gave copies to all my friends. My mom was less than impressed.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather

Black or red? Red

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Satin Sheets

Ocean or mountains? Mountains

City life or country life? I’d like a combination of both.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home

Dogs or cats? Dogs
