Reuniting with the man who broke her heart has never felt so right. Falling back into love, the theme of Harmony’s Embrace by Amber Daulton.

Amber, 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.

Harmony’s Embrace by Amber Daulton

Genre Romantic Suspense

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

Divorced dad Birley Haynes is too busy raising his children and running his family’s music academy to start a relationship. Then Harmony Holdich, his high school sweetheart, returns home to Willow Springs, Vermont for Christmas and falls into his bed. She brings light and fun back into his life, but he can’t brush aside the threatening incidents around his workplace.

Harmony hadn’t expected a complication like Birley, especially so soon after the death of her unfaithful husband. With her life a mess, she plans to move across the country and start over. All she can offer him is a fling, but her heart yearns for more.

When the threats rise, how will Birley keep his children safe and convince Harmony to give love another chance?

Why did you write this book?

Harmony’s Embrace is part of the multi-author Deerbourne Inn series, in which I’d already written one book, Lyrical Embrace. As I was writing Lyrical, I introduced a secondary character that really needed a good woman in his life.

Birley Haynes was so focused on work and taking care of his children that he’d forgotten how to relax and have fun. I wanted him to be happy and to find a mother figure for his adorable kids.

A few ideas bounced around in my head for about a year, but I couldn’t decide on Birley’s love interest.

Would she be a stranger coming to his small town of Willow Springs for whatever reason?

Would she be his ex-wife, who ran away from her responsibilities and now regrets her foolhardy decision?

Or would she be his high school sweetheart who never stopped loving him?

After I finally decided on the heroine—bachelorette number 3!—the plot fell together easily.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romantic Suspense and Paranormal are tied in first place. Give me bad boys, criminals, and secret agents, or vampires and shifters—I’m not picky.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I’m not sure. I really like The Hunger Games movies, and the books are on my ever-growing TBR list. So I have to go with the awesome Katness Everdeen.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently revising Ryan’s Temptation, a novella in my Arresting Onyx series. It follows sassy beautician Chanel Leroc and her sexy blond neighbor Ryan Naylor. After they witness the brutal death of a prostitute and the killer sets his sights on them, they must go into Witness Protection for their own safety. This fast-paced romantic suspense thriller is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Hopefully, Ryan’s Temptation will be out in Summer 2021.

Bucket list of IrishMist (Ivy) Vaughn from Stay A Little Longer @RomanceBJones #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseCan two lost souls find sanctuary in each others arms? Or will the past come back to destroy them? Another exciting Romantic Suspense by Bernadette Jones

Let’s meet IrishMist (Ivy) Vaughn. 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.

Stay A Little Longer by Bernadette Jones

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

IrishMist (Ivy) Vaughn studied the glass of liqueur that she’d been named after and contemplated her lack of a future. She’d been fighting to stay alive since the age of twelve. Trained with warrior skills to be whatever they asked of her. Trained to kill.

No permanent home. Living out of a duffel bag. Changing personas at the ring of a phone. I’m lost. I’m struggling to make sense of my life. I’m tired of fighting everyone else’s battles. All my friends are gone. I want to quit. I want a little normal. A little happiness. A little….love.

Will they let me walk away?

Death didn’t frighten Gage Ewing. Living scared the hell out of him.

The innocent one died. I lived. Where is the justice in that? I’ve spent every day since trying to save others. No matter how many I heal in the hospital or on the streets, I can never be forgiven for that one death. I don’t deserve a family, a home or one moment of happiness.

Then she walks into the Wild Card and I’m filled with need, hunger. Hope. But my past is coming. Can I walk away before I’m the death of another innocent?

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: 34

Gender: Badass Female

Birthplace: Backwoods Kentucky

Profession: Military and Black Ops

Ethnicity: No Clue

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters):

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m 5’7″, blue eyes, long blonde hair. I’m a fighter, so I’m pretty well muscled but sleek. My size is deceptive. I’m a lot stronger than some would think.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up poor and learned how to fight early. I was into martial arts and MMA boxing before I even left high school to join the military.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Gage Ewing won’t get out of my head or my life. I don’t want anyone, but he doesn’t let up. He makes me feel safe to be me. He makes me feel wanted. He doesn’t care what I’ve been.

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 have an older brother, JackDaniels Vaughn. But I haven’t seen him since I was a kid. He disappeared.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

We didn’t have many toys. We played outside or went to the school playground.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

I love pasta and meatballs, a little on the spicy side. My second favorite is chicken, any style.

Tell us about your best friend.

The first time I met Owen, I decked him. He’s not afraid to spar with me. We’re both ex-military and ex-MMA fighters. We’ve both seen some bad stuff. He gets me.

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

I traveled a lot with my career. Now, I want solitude and peace and maybe a family. I think I’ve found it in Spencer, Colorado.

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

Kentucky. Growing up there was my personal hell on earth.

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

I really wish I could see my brother again. I miss him and I think I understand why he left, but I’d like to say I’m sorry. And—and tell him I love him.

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

The person out to kill me. I don’t know who it is, but I will find them.

From the Author

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

There are some secondary characters that wanted to take over. I had to promise they would get their own stories.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

Ivy stays in the shadows. I thought it was time people learned a little about her. She had a hard time growing up. There is a reason she is the way she is.

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

She didn’t know how to love or be loved. Affection was hard for her. I also didn’t know she had a brother.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

Possibly a short story with Gage and Ivy. Also keep watching, Jack Daniels may have his own story. After all, Spencer is about family.

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

Paranormal. I have some ideas…. If only there was more time in a day.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I’m vegetarian.

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

I write about the healing of love. We all have something in our pasts that we wish we could change. So do my characters. I grew up on mysteries, thrillers, and action stories. You will find all of those in my books.

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

All my books are stand alone and can be read in any order, but characters from my other books in the Aspen Gold Series may show up, just for fun! Also, my books are a little messy, complicated, gritty and steamy.

Lonely Eyes, Owens book, followed this one. Look for Another Night Alone, Deke’s story coming soon.

Bernadette Jones has been making up stories since she learned to read on her daddy’s lap. She has imagined casts of characters everywhere she’s called home: Texas, Oregon, South Dakota, Nebraska, Illinois, Massachusetts, and now New York.
Books and music filled her life as she, her dad and two brothers traveled the country. She would sit in the back seat of the car (her older brother always got to ride shotgun), listening to the current music on the radio, looking out the window and spinning a story based on a phrase or word she’d heard in the lyrics. As you can imagine, traveling the country the music changed from state to state, as did the stories. To this day she loves all genres of music, and books.
After a career in corporate writing, she’s finally decided to settled down and put pen to paper doing what she loves. Living the dream in her NYC apartment with her canine companion, she’s is bringing her stories and characters to life.

What’s your favorite book?…

Double Dealing by Jayne Castle

What’s a genre you want to write?…

Romantic Suspense will always be my first love. But I have several paranormal stories nagging me to be written.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Write the book you want to read. Writing takes a lot of energy and hard work. Most of us were readers before we ever picked up a pen, so it makes sense to write what we already love.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

Sleepin’ Alone is my first book. Many of the characters you met in that book show up in Lonely Eyes. In fact you met the hero from Lonely Eyes in that first book. I wonder if you will recognize him?

All of my books can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple and most other Ebook sites.
