Fast-paced fun in Perfectly Planned by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #romcomLinda O’Connor, 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.

Perfectly Planned by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
She has it all Perfectly Planned…
Chloe Keay is on the hunt for the perfect sperm donor, but who knew it would be this hard? So many things to consider in a father – sure height and hair color are important, but what about the real issues. How does he feel about bagpipe music? Does he buy the extended warranty? Skittles or M and Ms? She doesn’t want an average Joe. She’s narrowed it down to two candidates and has the perfect plan to pick the heir and the spare.
Staff Sergeant Rip Logan, head of the elite Tactics and Rescue Unit, has a gut feeling that Chloe Keay is trouble. She’s a sexy little spark plug who radiates innocence, but it doesn’t jibe with her suspicious behavior and probing questions. The fact that he’s attracted irritates him. What exactly is she after? And should he go with his gut or follow his heart?
Planning for love – what could possibly go wrong?

Her Cadillac Cowboy by Rue Allyn @RueAllyn #RLFblog #Contemporary RomanceWelcome 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.

Her Cadillac Cowboy by Rue Allyn

Genre Short Contemporary Romance with Comedic elements
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): Definitely R rated
A rich cowboy with a classic Cadillac—sounds like the stuff of dreams for a small-town Texas girl, right? Wrong! Josh McKinley and his classic car have been Sara Carson’s nightmare since Josh left ten years ago. Now the cowboy and his Caddy are back. Sara must choose between loyalty to her family and love for the one man she shouldn’t want.
Is the key to Sara Carson’s heart the Cadillac that their families have been feuding over for ten years? Or will Josh McKinley have to give up the car he treasures in order to win the woman he loves?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes, I also write historical romance (medieval, regency era, and Victorian/western). I’ve done some erotica in the past and while those books are still available, I no longer write to that audience specifically.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I come up with ideas all sorts of ways, but mostly I use ‘What if’. For example “What if a woman wanted to run her family car dealership but her father objects?’ That might be the spark for Her Cadillac Cowboy.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Oh heavens, it’s all important. What do I like most? I like drafting most, where I get to discover the story.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first romance in 1996. It was a really lousy book, so don’t ever expect to see it in print.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Red
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Very smooth cotton
Ocean or mountains? Ocean
City life or country life? Country (but don’t ask me to do the gardening)
Party life or evening at home? Quiet evening at home
Dogs or cats? “Cats rule, dogs drool.”

Cuffed: A Detective Goldie Locks Mystery by JA Kazimer @jakazimer #RLFblog #RomanticComedyWelcome 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.

Cuffed: A Detective Goldie Locks Mystery by JA Kazimer

Genre Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Detective Goldie Locks isn’t looking for just the right bed. Or any bed for that matter.
She’s on the hunt for a killer.
When she discovers the fingerprints of a once-upon-a-time lover, a man who jumped over a candlestick and out a window to leave her facing some serious trespassing trouble alone, at a crime scene, she vows to see him in handcuffs.
Jack B. Nimble has other ideas.
He threatens her adoptive family if Goldie doesn’t help him clear his villainous name, much to the chagrin of her current boyfriend and quite possibly the next mayor, Beau White, the fairest man in all the land.
Trying to prove his innocence turns out to be harder than she expected, especially when Jack refuses to aid in his defense, and instead, starts a campaign to ‘win’ her back. Goldie might be a blond, but she’s far from dumb enough to fall for his charms a second time.
Or so she tells herself every time his lips meet hers.
The deeper she plows into the rabbit hole and Jack’s soul, the more she learns about his motives for returning to the city—Destroying her perfectly crafted life.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Mystery, romantic suspense, urban fantasy, fairytales, humor
How do you come up with ideas
?…
I rub Aladdin’s lamp, ask my fairy Godmother, and when neither of those work, which is 99% of the time, I ask myself, what stories do I want to read?
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Entertaining readers. Makes someone who might be having a bad day, smile.
When did you write your first book?…
I wrote my first book in 2007.

FUN

Leather or lace? I’d love to say leather and sounds cool, but lace is much more me.
Black or red? Black. Mostly because I am terrible at color coordinating my clothes.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, or else my pups slide around in bed all night.
Ocean or mountains? Ocean. No contest. Though I live in Colorado. Go figure.
City life or country life? City life. Oddly I like hearing sirens at night. Helps me sleep.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home, reading.
Dogs or cats? Both. Though I do tend to favor my dogs more.

Time for the Doctor: A Copper Mills Novella by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomcomLinda O’Connor, 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.

Time for the Doctor: A Copper Mills Novella by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Come visit Copper Mills, Arizona – a small town with a heart as big as the wide-open spaces and a history of making dreams come true.
Dr. Tash Bannon, the only internist at Copper Mills General Hospital, is a workaholic. After a couple of patient complaints, the board of directors realizes Tash needs a break and “suggests” he take a three-month vacation.
Dr. Melissa Sinclair is a single mom, and her adopted son comes first in her life. She’s used to the hustle of a big city hospital but takes the job to cover for Tash hoping to expose her son to his Hopi ancestry during their time in Copper Mills.
Tash resents having to take time off – and has an even harder time staying away now that Melissa is around. Now he just has to decide which is more important: his job or Melissa?
Make time for the doctor…especially if she’s the love of your life.
Why did you write this book?
I teamed up with a group of ten authors to write brand-new, stand-alone romances all set in the same small-town of Copper Mills, Arizona. I was thrilled to be invited to write a story about one of the town’s doctors. I’m a physician, and I love writing medical romances. My goal is to weave the best parts of medicine into romance. I thought it was such a cool idea to share a world with other authors – and revisit characters from their stories. I think it’s the best part of writing a series! I live in Canada and all my other romances take place in small Ontario towns. I wouldn’t have thought to set a story in sunny hot Arizona, but it was fun to change it up.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read to escape so my favorite books are romances with love and laughter and a happily-ever-after ending (of course!). I also pick up cozy mysteries, humorous stories like The Best Laid Plans by Terry Falls, or biographies/real-life experiences like Ruth Reichl’s Garlic and Sapphires. Next, I’d like to read Michelle Obama’s Becoming.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I think my favorite character is Alan MacGregor from Nora Roberts’ MacGregor family stories or maybe Roarke from her In Death series. Strong men who fall head-over-heels in love – how can you not love that?
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I’m busy marketing and promoting Time for the Doctor and the other two series I’ve written, In the Game Hockey Romance and the Perfectly Series,
What books will we see from you in coming months?
When things settle down, I’m plotting another romantic comedy series with a match-making doctor. I have ideas swirling in my head and can’t wait to get started.

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #romanticcomedyLinda O’Connor, 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 the book.

Perfectly Christmas by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
On the first day of Christmas, his true love said to him, “Sorry, I have to work.”
That’s the life of a surgeon, and Dr. Madison Hayes wouldn’t have it any other way.
Dr. Quinn Malone has another priority. In the countdown to Christmas, he needs to convince his old flame that there’s more to life – and love – than the job itself.
This time, his heart is in it for the long haul. Really.
Romantic and…complicated – it’s Perfectly Christmas!

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.
It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Builds a fire in the fireplace and cozies up with the latest issue of A Bit about Drills.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Pizza from Pizza Heaven in Strathaven. If she can get out of making dinner, she’s all over it.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
In the operating room, she’s in surgical greens. At home, it’s comfy sweat pants and an oversized sweatshirt.
Does she know how to fix things?
She’s a master with a drill – it’s been a hobby for years. If it can be fixed with a drill, she’s your woman.
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She’s not a huge fan of the Secret Santa gift exchange. Buying gifts that people don’t need and want even less is not exactly her cup of tea. But she’s trying to fit into small-town Strathaven so she agrees to participate. Whose name does she pull out of the hat? None other than her old flame Quinn Malone. Groan. Now she has three weeks to make a homemade gift for him. The silver lining is that she’ll be able to use her drill – soap on a rope anyone?
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She’s used to putting patients, including children, quickly at ease.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
She’s an early riser – all those years of 6 a.m rounds at the hospital have molded her into an early bird.
Can she use chopsticks?
Yes. She’s a surgeon with superior fine motor skills – chopsticks are a piece of cake.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Coffee – black. Quick and easy – and it means less grocery shopping.
What apps would she have on her phone?
CPS (Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties), UptoDate, Mobile Banking, Grey’s Anatomy, Fundamentals of Surgery, A Bit about Drills
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Earrings – discrete turquoise crystals are her fav.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
Unadorned skin.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Her own CRV that she can pack all her belongings in – handy when she moves from small town to small town. But in Strathaven, the car stays parked in her garage, and everything is close enough to walk.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle (always).
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Bartholomew a Racoon Familiar from Better Haunts and Garden Gnomes by Michelle M Pillow @MichellePillow @RobsRescues #RLFblog #PetsMichelle M Pillow, 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 your book.

Better Haunts and Garden Gnomes by Michelle M Pillow

Genre: Cozy Mystery Paranormal Romantic Comedy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
Welcome to Lucky Valley where nothing is quite what it seems.
Lily Goode wasn’t aware she had an inheritance waiting for her in the form of a huge Victorian house in Lucky Valley, Colorado. Life might finally be coming together for her. That is if you don’t count the endless home repairs, dealing with eccentric Aunt Polly who claims they’re both witches, and Nolan Dawson the handsome home inspector who seems to have it out for her, then, sure, life is grand. Oh, and not to mention the strange hallucinations and garden gnomes who are far more than lawn ornaments.
If mysterious accidents don’t do her in, then the rebellious gnomes just might. With the help of Aunt Polly, it’s up to Lily to discover who’s sabotaging her new home and trying to drive the Goodes out of Lucky Valley once and for all.

Meet Bartholomew from Better Haunts and Garden Gnomes

Full name: Bartholomew
Gender: Male
Species: Racoon
Physical description: A rather large racoon. He’s been eating well.
Relationship to main character: Her brother’s new familiar.
Relationship to the villain/antagonist: He doesn’t have time for that sort of thing.
Where this furbaby came from: He’s been living in the walls of the Victorian house Lily Goode just inherited.
What inspired you to create this character?
As one often does, I was watching adorable animal videos on the internet and saw one of a racoon riding on the windshield of a car. It reminded me of the incredibly well-fed racoon that would come each evening to eat the food I’d put out for the stray cat who moved into my yard. He’d sneak a hand forward and grab a piece. The cats didn’t care.
What does the main character think about this furbaby?
I don’t Lily Goode is thrilled by the idea of wildlife living in her new home.
How do other characters react to or interact with this furbaby?
Dante Goode, the heroine’s brother, gets off to a rough start with Bartholomew. I can’t give too much away because of spoilers.
What is this furbaby’s natural habitat?
The walls and floor of the Goode’s third story storage area.
What about this furbaby will readers like, and why?
What’s not to love about any furbaby? Bartholomew is mischievous and does his own thing. He also causes a little trouble.

About Lord Winston, Lady Annabelle, Princess Fiona, and Bunny

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Bartholomew a Racoon Familiar from Better Haunts and Garden Gnomes by Michelle M Pillow @MichellePillow @RobsRescues #RLFblog #PetsThis post is called Fiction Furbaby, but perhaps your own pet does not have fur. If you have a pet that has fins, wings, scales, or other features, please tell us about them here.
Winston and Anna are English Bulldogs and are about 12 years old now. Fiona is a Schipperke, and full of adorable tricks to con people out of treats. Bunny is a stray cat who adopted us.
Which, if any of the pets in your writing are modeled after your own pets? In what way?
Winston and Anna are English Bulldogs. In the series, Warlocks MacGregor, one of the uncles has an English Bulldog he enchanted to never age. I think a lot of us wish we has that kind of magic.
What do your pets do when you are writing?
Fiona patrols the house and makes sure everything is in order. Bunny’s domain is the garage and front bushes. I’m pretty sure she just rolls around in dirt all day collecting fur-leaves. Winston is content to find strange places to sleep (or he tries to sneak into my husband’s office). Anna is a resident of under my desk.
What’s the most unusual pet you ever had?
We rescued a baby duck. I taught him how to swim in the bathtub.
Describe a toy or favorite item your pet loves.
Fiona is my playful one. She hoards all the toys. I count five in a pile on her bed right now.
