Secrets and Solace by Jana Richards

No matter how deeply buried, secrets rise to the surface.
Scarlet Lindquist has agreed to help her sisters rebuild the dilapidated fishing lodge in Minnesota they inherited from their grandparents. Although the lengthy restoration is bringing the three sisters closer together, Scarlet’s support is temporary. Her leave of absence from her job in Chicago is temporary and she has no intention of staying at Solace Lake Lodge, where the lake holds dark secrets. When frightening childhood memories resurface, they are tempered by her fascination with an irritating contractor. If only she could trust her feelings for him. If only he could trust her.
Cameron Hainstock meets Scarlet at his brother’s wedding to her sister and their attraction is instantaneous. But Cam avoids the beautiful marketing executive. All his efforts are aimed at battling for custody of his only child. When the unimaginable happens and Cam faces the biggest challenge of his life, he’s reluctant to accept help to halt his downward spiral. Can they learn to trust each other and fight for a future together or will they go their separate ways?

Storm Crazy by Livia QuinnRead free: Storm Crazy by Livia Quinn #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

Welcome to Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…
I’m Sheriff Jack Lang. After an exciting career as a Navy pilot, Destiny seemed like the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But that ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy – sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. Tempe never fails to test the limits of my patience or the law. Every time I think it’s the last straw, up pops another haystack.
My name is Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. I’m also a Paramortal like my family, or I’m supposed to be. If I didn’t have a few little talents, I’d think I was adopted. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. My brother’s genie bottle is missing, my mother’s AWOL, and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim over a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. I’ve denied my heritage for most of my life but all this chaos is a sign of my quickening Tempestaerie power.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thinks he’s settled in a normal, quaint small town–like Mayberry?! We’ll see how that turns out… Things better settle down soon, ’cause I’m about to go…Storm Crazy.

Perdition House (# 1 An Erotic Saga) by Bonnie Edwards

Welcome to Perdition House: a house of sin, secrets, and seduction.
Some ghost stories are erotic…
Faye Grantham inherits Perdition House, a former bordello, and expects to sell the property but the spirits who “live” there have other ideas. As the spirits tell their stories one by one, Faye is embroiled in a life-changing situation that has her questioning everything she believes. Should she stay with her fiancé or move on to one of the men the spirits have thrown into her life?
Liam Watson wears comfort like most men wear cologne. With an interest in adventurous sex, he’s more man than he first seems.
Mark McLeod is a strong, decisive businessman who was not meant to be more than a hot one-night stand. But Mark is in no hurry to end their liaison, and hopes to continue Faye’s lessons in sensuality.
As the spirits reveal themselves, Faye learns their stories: how they came to Perdition House, why they joined the women there and some of the secrets that only a high-class bordello could hold.
But can decades-old secrets affect Faye’s life today?

#FreeBookFriday with Kris Bock and other authors #RLFblogThe Dead Man’s Treasure by Kris Bock

Rebecca Westin is shocked to learn the grandfather she never knew has left her a bona fide buried treasure – but only if she can decipher a complex series of clues leading to it. The hunt would be challenging enough without interference from her half-siblings, who are determined to find the treasure first and keep it for themselves. Good thing Rebecca has recruited some help.
Sam is determined to show Rebecca that a desert adventure can be sexy and fun. But there’s a treacherous wildcard in the mix, a man willing to do anything to get that treasure – and revenge.
Action and romance combine in this lively Southwestern adventure, complete with riddles the reader is invited to solve to identify historical and cultural sites around New Mexico.
“The Dead Man’s Treasure is fast-paced and a perfect read for the weekend. I highly recommend this one.”
“I can’t say enough how much I loved this book! It has mystery, adventure, danger, romance, and above it all family remains a huge theme.”
The Dead Man’s Treasure is book 2 of the Southwest Treasure Hunters novels. Each book features a different hero and heroine, and stands alone, with a happy ending.

Jana Richards, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Let’s chat with the sisters from the Love at Solace Lake series.

Love at Solace Lake series by Jana Richards @JanaRichards_ #RLFblog #contemporaryromance

Character Interview – the Lindquist Sisters

The last book in my new three book contemporary romance series, Love at Solace Lake, releases on March 28, 2018. The series centers around three sisters who inherit a run-down fishing lodge in Minnesota from their grandparents. Each of the sisters has a different reaction to the inheritance. They grew up at Solace Lake Lodge, raised by their grandparents after their parents drowned there in what was ruled by the police as a murder/suicide.

I’d like to introduce you to the Lindquist sisters – Harper, the responsible oldest sister, Scarlet, the troubled middle child and Maggie, the secretive baby of the family. It’s three weeks before Christmas and six weeks before the series begins. Scarlet has arranged a conference call with her sisters:

Scarlett: Harper? Maggie? Are you there?

Harper: I’m here! It’s wonderful to hear your voice. We haven’t talked in forever.

Scarlett: It’s only been a few weeks.

Harper: Maybe, but it feels like a year. Chicago is so far away. I can’t wait to see you again. When are you going to arrive here at the lodge?

Scarlett: Yeah, about that–

Maggie: Hi. Sorry I’m late. (Yawns.) Did I miss anything?

Scarlett: (with sarcasm) I hope we’re not keeping you up.

Maggie: Give it a rest, Scarlet. I just got home from the restaurant and I’m exhausted.

Harper: I’m happy you were able to make the call, sweetheart. And I’m thankful you arranged it, Scarlet. It gives us a chance to discuss our plans for Christmas.

Scarlet and Maggie together: About Christmas…

Harper: What about it?

Maggie: I’m sorry, Harper, but I can’t come out to the lodge for Christmas. I have to work. The restaurant is really busy over Christmas and I’m the chef with least seniority.

Harper: Oh. Well, okay. What if Scarlet and I come to Minneapolis and stay at your place? I could cook a turkey and we can open presents when you get home. That way we could still be together, even if it’s not at the lodge.

Scarlett: Harper, I’m sorry but I’m not coming home for Christmas either. That’s why I wanted to talk to you. I’m going to Cancun with friends.

Harper: Oh.

Scarlett: I need to get away and have some fun in the sun. You, know. Drink a few margaritas and flirt with good-looking men.

Harper: Yeah, sure.

Scarlett: I’m sorry, Harper. Please don’t be angry.

Harper: No, of course not. I’m not angry.

Maggie: Maybe not, but you’re disappointed. I can hear it in your voice.

Harper: Well sure, I would have liked to be with you both for Christmas, but since that’s not in the cards, it makes another decision easier for me. My boss at Miller’s Resort asked me to work over the holidays because so many other waitresses were asking for time off. But I wanted to see what you two were doing before I committed. Now I can tell her yes.

Maggie: You’re not just saying that to make us feel better, are you?

Harper: No, of course not. The restaurant is short-staffed. And I could always use the money.

Scarlett: To pay the heating bills in that old heap, no doubt. Why don’t you sell the lodge, or what’s left of it, and come live with me in Chicago? I’d love to have you nearby.

Harper: I’d love to be close to you, too, but I can’t leave the lodge. Grampa gave it to all three of us. He’d want it to stay in the family. He’d want all three of us to work here together.

Maggie: You know that’s not going to happen. Even if I was interested, the lodge is a wreck, and we don’t have the money to make it a viable business again.

Harper: Yeah, but if we could find the money–

Scarlett: Nobody’s going to be crazy enough to loan you money, Harper. It’s too risky an investment. Sell the lodge and move someplace new. The lodge belongs in the past.

Harper: (quietly) Were you so unhappy at the lodge, Scarlet?

Scarlett: There are a lot of bad memories there.

Harper: Not all bad, I hope.

Maggie: There were happy times, too. Like the Christmases when Grampa would shovel the snow off a piece of the lake so we could skate. And then we sat in front of the fire next to the Christmas tree and opened presents.

Harper: We were all together.

Scarlett: Excerpt for Mom and Daddy.

(silence)

Harper: Yeah, except for them. (clears her throat) I should probably run. I promised one of my bookkeeping clients I’d finish her month end when she closed her hair salon.

Maggie: Isn’t one job enough for you?

Scarlett: If you got a job in an accounting firm in Chicago, you wouldn’t have to work so hard.

Harper: I’m not cut out to live in a big city. (pauses) Well, I guess this is goodnight. And Merry Christmas.

Maggie: Merry Christmas. I guess we’ll talk sometime after the New Year.

Scarlett: I hope you can have some fun, even if you’re both working.

Harper: Phone me as soon as you get home from Cancun so I know you’re safe.

Scarlett: You worry too much, but I will. I love you guys.

Harper: I love you, too.

Maggie: Likewise.

That was fun, yet poignant. Makes me want to know more. Please tell us about the books featuring these sisters.

Where to buy Lies and Solace, Book 1

She can’t live with one more lie. He can’t tell the truth.
Harper Lindquist is convinced she’s found the answer to her financial prayers. Unless she pours cash into crumbling Solace Lake Lodge, she’ll lose her family’s legacy. Her would-be savior arrives in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard and she’s determined to prove to her reluctant, and trapped, financier the lodge is a sound investment. But Harper isn’t completely honest with him. And she has no idea the lake is hiding secrets of its own.
Ethan James is a liar, but his money is very real. He isn’t convinced a broken-down inn is a smart investment opportunity. But the more he understands Harper’s dreams and desires, the more he wants to be the man to make them come true. The trauma in both their pasts means neither can fully trust the other. They must find the courage to love, to trust, and to accept, or yesterday’s sorrows will keep them apart.

Jana Richards Social Media

When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.
In her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg, Canada with their Pug/Terrier cross Lou and several unnamed goldfish.
