Read A Town Called Nowhere by VK Tritschler @vktritschler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceAn abandoned town and two runaway were-panthers are in VK Tristchlers’ new paranormal romance, A Town Called Nowhere. With such contrasting backgrounds, will they have the strength to start afresh, find love and start the new pack, or will their pasts come back to haunt them?

VK, 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 Town Called Nowhere.

A Town Called Nowhere by VK Tritschler

A were-panther shifter romance set in rural Australia.

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Moderate

What happens when two lost were-panthers meet for the first time?

Nicci, a were-panther abandoned as a child and without a pack, finds herself on the run from the law. With nothing left to lose, she doesn’t trust anyone, especially her own heart.

Dru, a famous race car driver and inheritor of one of the most influential packs in Australia, is trying to escape notoriety, and his fate. Prepared to throw away everything, he is trusting his instincts to get him through.

Together they find themselves stuck in a small rundown deserted town called Nowhere in the wilderness of rural Australia.

Can they learn to trust each other and find a future, or is the call of the wild too strong?

QUICK

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

Absolutely! I love to write within romance, but I have done rom-com, paranormal romance, and even romantic suspense. It’s the appeal of relationships that brings me to the general genre, but the rest I leave up to inspiration.

How do you come up with ideas?

Randomly often. A thought or idea that I might have acquired during the day, or a conversation with a friend. Sometimes I play a card game to randomly select an idea, and once I start writing I just let the world reveal itself to me.

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

Finding time and allowing yourself to get absorbed into the book and the character. For me, the story is more than just a job or a activity, it’s the world in which your characters live, breathe and love. And that is a special relationship as you get to reveal them to your own world.

When did you write your first book?

My first full book I wrote in 2014-15 and got published in 2018. It was both my greatest joy to see it in print and my biggest fear.

Shilpa, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Midnight’s Star.

Midnight’s Star by Shilpa Suraj

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG 15

Visually impaired author and current flavour of the Indian literary scene, Dev Arya, has not just triumphed against the odds in his life, he’s annihilated them. He’s got fame, fortune and floozies in abundance. And yet, he’s lonely.

Cafe owner and only child to her differently abled father, Avni Desai is broke, heartbroken and a true survivor. But no matter how hard she hustles, she’s still struggling to stay afloat.

And then, one day, Dev walks into her cafe… and everything changes for both of them. From excellent tiramisu to earshattering singing, from dramatic friends to accident prone sexcapades, they embark on the ride of a lifetime.

Will it all be worth it? Will two broken souls find a way to heal each other? Or do the fractures go so deep there is no way for either of them to find the love they so deeply crave, yet can’t seem to reach?

QUICK

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

I write mostly in romance but I have experimented with romantic thrillers. It’s called The Right Kind of Wrong.

How do you come up with ideas?

Mostly, my overactive imagination provides me with ample fodder for my stories.

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

The joy of having a story I want to tell read well on the page.

When did you write your first book?

I wrote my first book in 2012. It was published by Harlequin Mills & Boon India in 2014

Bird That Sings in Cowboy Desire anthology by Dee S Knight

Genre PNR, Cowboys

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R+

As Dee S Knight I write mostly contemporary erotic romance. I’ve also written two futuristic ménage romances. My Anne Krist persona writes sweet(er) romance and Jenna Stewart writes ménage: historical and contemporary.
How do you come up with ideas?

How does one not come up with ideas?? But if I ever find myself at a loss, I just drive around for awhile and listen to a country music station.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?

Making sure the storytelling is right. Every other thing about writing is important, but if the story isn’t right, it doesn’t matter.

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 (www.nomadauthors.com). Fortunately, Dee's high school sweetheart is the love of her life and husband to all three ladies!

Read Stetson’s Lady (The Diamond Ring Book 1) by Ronni Griffith @romanceronni #RLFblog #ContemporaryWesternRonni Griffith, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Stetson’s Lady.

Stetson’s Lady (The Diamond Ring Book 1) by Ronni Griffith

Genre Contemporary Western/Cowboy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

He’s a man who has it all–but the lady he truly loves.

Mesa Stone left Maple Ridge to get away from her best friend’s overbearing, headstrong brother, Stetson McKane. She’s been head-over-heels in love with the sexy-as-sin cowboy since she was a little girl. Now she’s back–and drinking her sorrows away at the McKane’s annual BBQ–when she finds herself at the mercy of Stetson’s archrival.

Stetson knew Mesa was back in town, but what he didn’t expect was to find her in the arms of his nemesis. He’s been rescuing his little sister’s best friend, Mesa, since she was a tomboy in pigtails. To his amazement, the little girl who drove him crazy is all grown up and Stetson finds he doesn’t have the will power to resist her any longer.

Neither can deny the heat rising between them, but between his ex who won’t take no for an answer, and Blaine’s schemes of revenge, it seems Stetson and Mesa don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of making it work.

But it’s true what people say about things being bigger in Texas–whether it’s a stubborn male ego, a heart full of love…or the red-hot attraction between two people who belong together.

QUICK

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

No. Right now I only write contemporary/western. Maybe as my writing career progresses I’ll venture out into more genres. Being from Texas, my three favorite types of men are, Oilmen, Cowboys, and Athletes. This being said, I’m a huge sports fan. I think it’d be kinda fun to venture out one day, and try my hand at something sports related. I guess time will only tell.

How do you come up with ideas?…

So, I have ideas pop in my head all the time. I’ve even woken up in the middle of the night with ideas. I can listen to music, watch a TV show, talk to people at the grocery store and walk away with an idea for my book. Some of them come from past and present situations I’ve been in. Some of my best ideas come to me when I’m in the shower (that’s always interesting to jump out of the shower to grab a pen and paper to jot the idea down before it’s gone forever). I’m a pretty observant person. Just watching and talking to people give me a lot of ideas. So the short answer, I get ideas everywhere I go and pretty much everyone I come in contact with. So, like I tell my family and friends, be careful what you say and do around me, because more than likely it’ll end up in a book of mine one of these days.

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

Writing, for me, gives me an outlet. It sounds crazy, but writing is kinda like playing my music. For the time I’m writing, I get to shut off the outside world and bury myself into the lives of my characters. I know they have their issues and things they have to go through before they get to their happily ever after, but they get there. I was an avid reader before stepping out and writing my own book. One thing I always appreciated about what authors do, is they gave me a few hours to escape everyday life. I’d like to think I give readers the same thing.

When did you write your first book?…

I spent five years on Stetson’s Lady before it was finally released. My book has been critiqued by other well known authors and close friends. It’s been edited several times and rewritten more than twice. The day my editor told me I should delete 20K words because it was way too long, I almost cried. I wrote “The End” in Maui, on November 5, 2016 and it was put out into the world on November 3, 2020. It’s a long road but one I’ll cherish forever. It’s amazing to me how fast book two is going when the first one took a long time.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather, for sure.

Black or red? Black

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton

Ocean or mountains? This is a hard one. It depends on which beach I’m at. If it’s tropical, for sure the ocean. If not, take me to the mountains.

City life or country life? I’m a born and raised country girl.

Party life or evening at home? Now-a-days, evening at home.

Dogs or cats? Dogs all the way.

Read Perilous Love by Jan Selbourne@JanSelbourne #RLFblog #Historical FictionSelbourne’s Perilous Love tells of war in Europe and a shocking betrayal, forcing Adrian and Gabrielle to run for their lives. Will they reach safety, or will danger and treason follow them back to England?

Jan Selbourne welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Perilous Love

Perilous Love by Jan Selbourne

Genre Historical Fiction

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

As the world rushes towards a war, Adrian Bryce, wealthy businessman, is ordered by the British government to leave his mistress and accompany his estranged wife Gabrielle to Belgium. They require proof Gabrielle’s uncle is supporting the German Empire. Adrian discovers secrets which plunge him and Gabrielle into a nightmare of betrayal. Forced to run for their lives as Germany invades, they must trust each other in the midst of danger, brutality, and injury.

Gabrielle enjoys her role of mother of their two children. Wanting only to be with her lover, and now fearful of exposure, she readies herself and her children for a difficult trip. With no way out, Gabrielle knows the two weeks with her aristocratic traditional family will be a trial, and Europe is on edge. She had no idea the danger she, Adrian and her children would be in.

Will Adrian and Gabrielle reach safety? If they do, are they out of danger or will the intrigue and treason follow them back to England?

QUICK

How do you come up with ideas?…

The idea for Perilous Love came from a small article on how a person’s true character emerges when faced with extreme danger, stress, or situations beyond our control. For instance, the tough guy turns to water and runs, the insignificant person steps up and takes charge. At the time I read this article I was reading my grandfather’s WW1 military record while completing my family tree. I had the setting, and I had the story.

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

Research, when we write historical fiction, we must provide an authentic as possible background for our story.

When did you write your first book?..

I have quite a few attempts going back some years and a few rejection letters to go with them. Perilous Love was my first real serious book and was published by Black Velvet Seductions in 2015.

Read The Boy on the Bridge by Effrosyni Moschoudi @FrostieMoss #RLFblog #PNRA teenage boy with the power of prophecy changes the life of a loving young couple in Effrosyni Moschoudi’s new paranormal romance novella, The Boy on the Bridge. Set in a Greek mountain village, this suspenseful story will intrigue you in every page until the identity of the teenage boy is fully revealed…

Effrosyni, 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 Boy on the Bridge.

The Boy on the Bridge by Effrosyni Moschoudi

Genre paranormal romance novella

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (sweet romance)

A young man determined to protect his girl… A teenage boy offering prophecies… and a series of unexplained events.

Lefteris and his darling girl, Evgenia, live a quiet and happy life together in a mountain village in Zagori, Greece. One day, as Lefteris crosses an old stone bridge, he meets a teenage boy who warns him that Evgenia is in danger and gives him instructions to follow.

Lefteris doubts him, but does as he is told, just in case. The warning turns into reality and the girl is saved, so the next time the boy warns of danger, Lefteris is more willing to listen…

What follows is a series of astounding events as the boy’s prophecies of mortal danger continue, and Lefteris does his best to protect his girl. Now, he considers reverting to his old ways of solving all differences with his fists. Will he allow himself to resort to violence? How does the mysterious boy on the bridge fit in all this? And why does he refuse to meet Evgenia?

QUICK

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

My novels are paranormal or fantasy romances. Most are sweet, one of them is clean and wholesome, and there’s also a Christian fantasy among them.

How do you come up with ideas?

My beloved Greek island of Corfu inspires me more than anything else. I was once inspired to write The Raven Witch of Corfu as I swam in the sea there gazing at a mountain – the place where, in the story, the witch has her secret dwelling. Other of my published stories have come to me out of the blue, either while I relaxed on the beach, or in bed in a half-awake state. I never really force myself to come with an idea. I find the best ones come to me unprompted. I get ideas all the time, but I don’t write them down or anything. Experience has shown that the ones worth exploring will persist in my head anyway.

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

Editing. No question about it. For me, a perfectly polished MS is a must. As a reader, I get jolted and put off if I am reading a book that’s full of typos or syntax errors. Or even worse – plot holes… Once these things become repetitive, the joy of reading goes out the window. At that point, I don’t care how good the story is, I’ll stop reading. This is why I am committed to offering my readers high-quality reads and nothing less.

When did you write your first book?

I started writing my first novel, The Necklace of Goddess Athena, when I was a student in Athens University in my early twenties. It was a slow process, until I got my first job upon graduation and then I completely set it aside. Twenty years of work in the corporate world later, I found myself unemployed with loads of free time on my hands. I still thank my lucky stars for the Greek financial crisis back in 2010 as that’s when I was led to discover the joys of creating new worlds out of thin air. I finished the book within one year and kept on writing!

FUN

Leather or lace? Lace. Leather is uncomfortable. And I am too old for uncomfortable.

Black or red? Black.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Any type of cotton. Flannel is even better.

Ocean or mountains? Ocean.

City life or country life? Country life forever!

Party life or evening at home? Guess what? You’re talking to the Queen of Cocooning!

Dogs or cats? I love and have had both, but only have two cats at the moment.
