Regan, Book 1, the Sisters O'Ryan by Dee S. Knight, writing as Jenna Stewart @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #historical #romance 1872 Oregon. In Dee S. Knight’s ménage a trois, two unusual men share widow Regan O’Ryan, promising her that in the West, dreams–and especially fantasies–can come true. 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.

Regan, Book 1, the Sisters O’Ryan by Dee S Knight, writing as Jenna Stewart

Genre Historical ménage romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Joining in the westward migration, Davey and Regan O’Ryan Stone bought an Oregon farm sight unseen, hungering for adventure. Davey regretted the impulse far past the point of no return, and then he died. Now, unskilled and alone on her farm, Regan fears going home a failure–as a daughter, a wife and a farmer. With money quickly running out, she gladly accepts the offer of help from Seth Pratt, an acquaintance from the wagon train, and his friend Haywood Lawrence.

One-armed Seth seeks work at the remote farm at the end of an Oregon trail with low expectations. When he finds Regan, alone and widowed, he tamps down desire. She deserves better than a man handicapped in war, searching for his soul. She’s worthy of someone like his Shakespeare-spouting, best friend, Hay. Nothing could have prepared Seth for Regan’s simple solution–that both men stay. On the farm and in her bed.

QUICK

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

Yes–in two sub-genre. Jenna Stewart is the name I use for ménage books (with the exception of two space opera ménage books, as Dee). As Jenna, I write historical and shifter ménage romance.

How do you come up with ideas?

I had the idea for the Sisters O’Ryan books (four of them), just kind of overnight. It felt like no real thought at all. Not sure where the idea came from, exactly. But another book I’d thought about for years was also historical. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a nun in the worst way. My mom worked in a Catholic hospital and I was around nuns a great deal and I admired them. Back in the 1950s, nuns were very different from what we see today, so I wondered about a nun who joined the convent and was content–until she went home to Oregon to empty her mother’s house after her death. There she discovers secrets that have affected her whole life, and desire such as she’d never imagined. She was no longer content. After the passion she experienced, could she return to the convent? My publisher called it Seducing Their Nun–a title I’ve always hated. I wanted to call it Sins of the Mother, and if you give the book a try, you’ll understand why. I know people who have said they wouldn’t read the book because it was disrespectful to the church, but I promise, it isn’t! Anyway, from that book, I created a series of historical ménage romances that were connected by one character in the previous book–like six degrees of separation. The shifter books came about as a lark, just to see if I could do it.

I like ménage romance because it demonstrates that a woman can indeed love two men at the same time. However (sigh), I also think it takes very unusual people to maintain such a relationship. Not too many of them around.

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

Creating an idea that will appeal to readers. And it also has to appeal to me as a writer. I have lots of ideas I think would work for a book but I don’t believe in the concept I would have to write or I simply don’t understand it, so I can’t possibly write it. I want to create work that people like and I would like to read myself.

When did you write your first book?

Gosh! It makes me feel old. As Dee, I wrote Impatient Passion in 2002. I wrote Burning Bridges (as Anne Krist) in 2005. As Jenna, I wrote Regan in 2012. You see it took me a while to come around to focusing on ménage!

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather

Black or red? Red, definitely

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? I know satin sheets have their problems, but what’s sexier than watching a satin sheet slip-slide off a naked body?

Ocean or mountains? Ocean

City life or country life? City

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, with my guys doing very naughty things

Dogs or cats? Both. I love watching their interactions

Dee S Knight, writing as Jenna Stewart Social Media

A few years ago, Dee S Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex.
After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories. All three of her personas are found on the Nomad Authors website. And all three offer some of the best romance you can find!

Would you like to be given as a gift to the men at a bachelor party? In Scarlet Love’s new erotic novella, The Bachelor Party Gift, Cara will have to please her master, or refuse his command and pay the price. Scarlet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Bachelor Party Favor.

The Bachelor Party Favor by Scarlet Love

Genre Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

One more fling before the ringthat’s what the groom gets at his bachelor party, right?

Cara’s Master knows that a bachelor party requires bros, booze and beauty. As the Best Man, it’s his job to provide those delights. And who better to provide the beauty than his own well-trained submissive?

Does Cara have any choice when her Master decides that she’s going to be the ‘beauty’ at his best friend’s bachelor party?

She doesn’t know any of these men, and she’s never been shared before. She likes to think she’s sexually adventurous, and happy to please her master, but this event might be more than she can handle.

She won’t have to jump out of a cake, but she will be presented in little more than some strategically placed ‘wrapping’ ribbon and a pair of high heels. What more does a sex object need?

And what will happen when the groom’s ‘present’ is unwrapped in front of his friends at the bachelor party?

QUICK

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

Not so far. Strictly erotica or erotic romance.

How do you come up with ideas?

Any stray thought can set off a ‘what if’, and that’s the germ of the idea. In The Bachelor Party Favor, it was actually the photo used on the cover that sparked my idea.

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

I like to surprise the reader. Not every line can be a surprise, but the reader wants to be entertained, and surprises are entertaining, aren’t they?

When did you write your first book?

About fifteen years agoalthough I dabbled for many years before that.

FUN

Leather or lace? Lace because it’s prettier

Black or red? Red, but hubby likes black J

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton

Ocean or mountains? Ocean

City life or country life? Both

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, especially with friends or family

Dogs or cats? Hmmmm, can’t choose.

Scarlet Love Social Media

The best part about being Scarlet is having the chance to make up fantastical worlds and populate them with all kinds of weird and wonderful creatures, from demons to fairies. In Scarlet’s Fantasy World, the men are tough, but the women are tougher (though usually in a different way).
Women enjoy sex and men understand it. (This is Fantasy World, remember). If the story’s not sexy, it’s not allowed in Fantasy World. The Real World has enough dull stuff. Sometimes we all need an escape from that, right? Happy endings are mandatory in Fantasy World, though there may be a lot of trouble and heartache to get there.

Read the new romance The Slow Burn by Caro Carson @TheCaroCarson #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomance She’s the college’s new swim coach, facing an unexpected pregnancy by a man who’s left the country–and her. Firefighter Caden Sterling is determined to be the friend this mother-to-be needs after he delivers her baby on the side of a road. Just friends…

Caro Carson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Slow Burn.

The Slow Burn by Caro Carson

Genre A single parent, friends-to-lovers contemporary romance

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

Out of the friend zone

And into the fire!

When firefighter Caden Sterling unexpectedly delivers Tana McKenna’s baby by the side of the road, the unlikely threesome form a special bond. So, when Caden offers friendship and a helping hand, single mom Tana can’t say no. Their flirty friendship slowly becomes more, until Tana’s ex and the truth about her baby catches up with her. Can she win back the only man who can make this family complete?

QUICK

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

Most of my books are contemporary romances, but I have a deep and abiding love for time travel romances. I’ve had the chance to write two related time travels, each involving women who lands on a pirate ship in 1740. Dashing sea captains are such great escapism, but I do a lot of research to get the details right. Ditto with my contemporary romances.

How do you come up with ideas?…

I am such a fan of romance novels, I love to challenge myself to write the classic tropes: amnesia, second chance romance, bad boy with the heart of gold, opposites attract, etc. The Slow Burn was my answer to the “other man’s child” trope. I knew the firefighter hero would have a very strong bond to the child if he delivered the baby on the side of the road!

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

The characters are so real to me that I actually miss them when I finish the book. Readers who tell me they fell in love with the characters really fill my heart. It’s like hearing that someone you care deeply about is still alive and well, making others happy!

When did you write your first book?…

I wrote my first book on a cross-country car trip the summer I turned seven. My stuffed animals were the main characters, and it was all about the lives they led when there were no humans around. Fast forward a few decades, and imagine my surprise when the first “Toy Story” movie came out! I guess I’m not the only one who felt their toys led lives of their own.

FUN

Leather or lace? I always want to be lace, sweet and delicate, but I know I’m really a tougher, more tested leather.

Black or red? Red is my power color—not very unique, I know.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? I have my grandmother’s satin pillowcases, which she used to keep her hairdo from getting too messy overnight. They work! I have very long hair, and I definitely wake up with fewer tangles when I use the satin pillowcases.

Ocean or mountains? I love them both, but I was born and raised in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale part of Florida, so I can’t remember a time when the ocean wasn’t always there as my personal play place.

City life or country life? City life. I adore the ballet, I adore pubs and bars, and I have a great fear of living too far from the nearest hospital. Weird, I know. It felt good to write a story about a woman who was too far from the hospital as her labor progressed rapidly, but who ended up delivering her baby just fine—thanks to the firefighter/paramedic friend who was with her. The handsome firefighter/paramedic. The handsome and single and good-hearted firefighter/paramedic…

Party life or evening at home? I do enjoy myself when I go out with friends, but I really have to force myself to get out of the house. Once I do, I have a great time. I don’t know why I don’t go out more often, except I’m quite happy reading books and watching movies at home. The one place that I’ll jump off the couch and run out the door to go to is Disney World. I live in Central Florida and have annual passes. Epcot is my happy place. It will be first on my list of places to go in post-pandemic life.

Dogs or cats? I’m allergic to cats. Like, super allergic. Dogs it is!

Read Burning Bridges by Anne Krist @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #contemporaryromance #Southernromance #KUOld letters turn Sara’s life into chaos in Anne Krist’s Burning Bridges. Did you ever tell a lie for so long that even you believed it? And then get caught? Ah… Then you understand Sara in Anne Krists’ Burning Bridges.

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.

Burning Bridges by Anne Krist

Genre Contemporary romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Not your typical “secret baby” book, this Southern romance is filled with emotion between a mature heroine and the man she used to love.

Letters delivered decades late send shock waves through Sara Richards’s world. Nothing is the same, especially her memories of Paul, a man to whom she’d given her heart years before. Now, sharing her secrets and mending her mistakes of the past means putting her life back together while crossing burning bridges. It will be the hardest thing Sara’s ever done.

QUICK

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

No. Just contemporary romance, and not too sexy. I leave that up to my sister, Dee S. Knight.

How do you come up with ideas?

Burning Bridges came to me when I heard a news report on the radio while I was on a road trip. Music is also a good inspiration. Really, how do you not come up with ideas?

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

Um…the writing. By that I mean I can have everything arranged perfectly in my head but sitting at the keyboard and hitting the keys is not easy.

When did you write your first book?

Dee wrote her first boo in 2002 but I wrote Burning Bridges in 2005. I just republished it (updated and all) this year.

Read Burning Bridges by Anne Krist @DeeSKnight #RLFblog #contemporaryromance #Southernromance #KU

FUN

Leather or lace? Could I choose flannel instead?

Black or red? Black–it’s slenderizing.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? I tried satin once and slid out of bed, so cotton. It’s safer!

Ocean or mountains? Mountains

City life or country life? Country

Party life or evening at home? Oh my gosh, I am the furthest you can find from a party girl. Give me a good book and cocoa (and my flannel jammies) and I’m happy.

Dogs or cats? I love them both! But if I can have only one…cats.

Read the new Highland Scandal by Mageela Troche @MageelaTroche #RLFblog #HistoricalRomanceMageela Troche, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Highland Scandal.

Highland Scandal by Mageela Troche

Genre Historical Romance

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

How long does happily ever after take?

They call her banshee. The taunt has pursued strong-willed Rowen Mackenzie through the glorious Scottish highlands. One man sees beyond the superstition–Lachlan Gordon. This brave highlander is the man she loves but duty requires her to wed another.

Wickedly charming, Lachlan Gordon has loved Rowen Mackenzie since his first glimpse of the ethereal beauty. As bastard of Chief Gordon, Lachlan can never claim her as his own. When his father, Laird Gordon, is murdered, Lachlan becomes the clan chief…too late to marry the woman he loves.

Years later, Rowen is now a widow and mother and her son is in danger. She jeopardizes her life and most importantly, her heart to protect her son. Lachlan is the only man who can help her. For a second chance at love, he must risk all—his clan, his life and his love to win even as secrets threaten their happiness and their very lives.

Will Rowen and Lachlan have their own happily ever after?

QUICK

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

I now just write historical romance. I have a few ideas for a contemporary bouncing about my head.

How do you come up with ideas?

Each time, it is different. It might be a picture, a line I read, or a character enters my head. Highland Scandal came out about instantly. I just had to sit down and write.

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

I love revising a novel that when I can make it better and get deeper than when I write my first draft.

When did you write your first book?

I was about five. It was three pages long and printed in pink crayon. As an adult my first was a chick-lit that is buried in the deep recesses of my drive and that was about 2004.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather

Black or red? Black

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton

Ocean or mountains? Ocean

City life or country life? City life

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home.

Dogs or cats? Both
