The Phoenix Rising series by Alexandra Christian

Genre : Sci-fi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Librarian Phoebe Addison has lived her entire life within a seventy-five mile radius of her small Louisiana town, but when she receives a strange medallion from her adventurous, off-world sister, reality tilts toward the bizarre. Everything Phoe thought she knew is…well, wrong. Dead wrong. But bone-numbing fear has no place in this brave new world—nor by the side of the dangerous, exquisite man who saves her life.
Following the tragic slaughter of his family, operative Macijah “Cage” St. John understands evil in a way no man ever should. He traded happiness for a magnificent and terrible power, and fate isn’t done with him yet. He wasn’t looking for comfort. He didn’t need tenderness. But today he’ll play hero to a damsel in distress, and his quest will deliver him to the uncanny Martian colony of New London—and his heart to the demure Phoebe Addison. The bookish beauty’s hidden talents and deep abiding love just might save Cage from himself.

Alexandra Christian is an author of mostly romance with a speculative slant. Her love of Stephen King and sweet tea has flavored her fiction with a Southern Gothic sensibility that reeks of Spanish moss and deep-fried eccentricity. Her guiding principle as a romance novelist has always been to write romantic adventures for people who think they hate romances. After all, love itself is life’s greatest adventure.
A self-proclaimed “Southern Belle from Hell,” Lexx is a native South Carolinian who lives with an epileptic wiener dog and her husband, author Tally Johnson. In addition to her writing, she also has unhealthy obsessions with Sherlock Holmes and Star Wars. Her long-term aspirations are to one day be a best-selling authoress and part-time pinup girl. She’s also a member of Romance Writers of America.

Tough Prospect: A Buffalo Steampunk Adventure by Laura Strickland @laurastricklandauathor #RLFblog #Steampunk RomanceLaura Strickland, 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.

Tough Prospect is the story of Mitch Carter, a man who’s never had anything soft or easy in his life, meeting up with a woman who, in his eyes, personifies all that’s beautiful, soft, and feminine. Used to battling for everything he needs, he’s prepared to battle for Tessa too. What he doesn’t understand is, love doesn’t respond to force and sometimes must be wooed with a gentle touch. He’ll have to open his heart and become vulnerable, before he succeeds in winning her, and for him that’s the hardest prospect of all.

Tough Prospect: A Buffalo Steampunk Adventure by Laura Strickland

Genre Steampunk Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Mitch Carter’s a hard man. He’s clawed his way up from Buffalo’s gutter through a combination of ruthlessness and stark loyalty to become the King of Prospect Avenue. But when he sees lovely Tessa Verdun, a crack appears in his tough veneer. He wants her for his wife even if making it happen requires coercion, dirty dealing, and a touch of blackmail.
Mitch is the last man Tessa would choose to wed, but he’s forced her into marriage, even though she’s ready to give her heart to another man. Now he tries to win her with lavish gifts and watches her with veiled passion in his eyes. But when everyone else turns against Tessa, it’s Mitch who’s there offering strength. And when vying factions in the city place Tessa in danger, it’s Mitch for whom she longs, though loving such a man is certainly a tough prospect.

Born in Buffalo and raised on the Niagara Frontier, Laura Strickland has been an avid reader and writer since childhood. To her the spunky, tenacious, undefeatable ethnic mix that is Buffalo spells the perfect setting for a little Steampunk, so she created her own Victorian world there. She knows the people of Buffalo are stronger, tougher and smarter than those who haven’t survived the muggy summers and blizzard blasts found on the shores of the mighty Niagara. Tough enough to survive a squad of automatons? Well, just maybe.

Genre Steampunk Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
After her brother is nearly killed while bringing sensitive information to his superiors, Margaret “Maggie” Ingleton takes it upon herself to complete his mission. All she has to do is deliver a letter to London. How hard can it be? Little does she realize that she’ll be risking not only her life, but that of the only man she’s ever loved.
When Colin Stanbury makes a routine delivery to his home city he never expects to pick up a stowaway. Maggie has always been a heady mix of proper lady and imp so finding her aboard his airship can only mean trouble. Despite Maggie’s claim that she needs to go to London to help a friend in need, he suspects she’s up to something. Yet he can’t help playing the gallant hero to her damsel in distress.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write in more than one subgenre of romance (paranormal, fantasy, scifi, steampunk, contemporary), but I only write romances.
How do you come up with ideas?
I usually see a scene in my head and then have to figure out who my characters are, what they are doing in that scene, and how they got to that point.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Outlining the story. If I can get that down then all the details fall into place easier.
When did you write your first book?
I started writing seriously after my second son was born, so about 14 years ago. Getting serious meant studying the publishing industry, taking writing workshops, and joining a writers group.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton
Ocean or mountains? Oceans
City life or country life? Country
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? Hmmmm…. Both! But if ONLY one I guess cats.

you can enjoy all the convention trappings in an atmosphere where you’re free to
be yourself! We also offer some pretty unique twists as well, like our own versions
of Match Game (a staple since 2007), Project Cosplay (2010), Nea’s Drag Race (2011),

the Dealer’s Room and seeing all the cool goodies. This year, there is a wide range
of products available, everything from horns to steampunk to anime to games… Check
it out. Below is a taste of what’s to come.

Venusian Airship Pirate Trading Company

We take the finest available weaponry from each time and location
that our travels take us to, that are available. We then modify it to fit our peculiar
steampunk technology. We enjoy spreading happiness one gun at a time. To this date
we have never duplicated an item, making each one a individual work of art. Hence
our motto, “Distinctive Weaponry for the Discriminating Buyer.”

Ben Butler: I am a Texas raised, Atlanta based artist/graphic
designer. I am one of many and am looking to entertain with light shock and crazy
thoughts.

Seafaring Steampunk

A lot of my pieces are simply just found items that I’ve put
to a better use – steampunkery! I dismantle clocks and watches, and buy other parts
from flea markets and thrift stores and the like. Because of this, very few of my
pieces can be reproduced. So hurry up and get your one-of-a-kind stuff!

Empire Valley Series

A book series by author Ellie Collins.
After the government is forced to accept the existence of supernatural
creatures, they are rounded up, imprisoned and shipped off to an island to live
out the rest of their days, forbidden to leave or to ever have contact with humanity
again. As seemingly random acts of violence break out across the island, the seeds
of rebellion begin to take root.
Sophia Desai, a Shapeshifter, is an officer on the island, processing
new arrivals and pushing papers. When she begins the investigation of a strange
murder, she begins to see the true dark side of their home, and of the people who
put them there.

Huntress Light Designs

Designs of the fantastical and spiritual.
The artist known as HuntressLight is also called “Kemi”
on forum sites. She makes her living as an Administrative Professional, but art
and tinkering are in her DNA. She keeps her soul fulfilled with crafting costume
props and creating digital artwork. She’s also a writer but that’s a whole ‘nother
story. Prosthetic Horns, original jewelry, belts and bracers, collars and cuffs,
puches and purses, plus much more.
