Laugh along with a new romantic comedy series set seven years before the movie Sweet Home Alabama, by @Kris_Bock and @dougeboch #RLFblog #RomanticComedyDouglas J Eboch and Kris Bock, 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.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock

Genre romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (underage drinking)

Big City, Big Glamour, Big Trouble

Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

Melanie’s mother has been shoving her into every beauty pageant within twenty miles since Melanie was a toddler. Melanie is getting a little sick of it. She’s on the verge of quitting when she qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant in the big city of Mobile. The first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek, not to mention that one of the judges is a real, live New York fashion designer. The competition will be fierce. Can a “trailer trash” girl outshine the snooty debutantes?

Meanwhile, Jake and his friends go to Mobile to support Melanie – and to party in the big city. But when the pageant is cursed by disasters from cockroaches in the banquet hall to skunks on stage, the gang suspects someone is sabotaging the contest. They try to figure who’s behind it and why, but it isn’t easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they’re more than what people see on the surface?

I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of RLF–and I’m usually welcoming guests in this space. Today, it’s my turn to share a new book. A Stolen Heart is my latest in the Antonello Brothers sci-fi series set in the Tarthian Empire.

A Stolen Heart by Kayelle Allen

When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves’ Guild he once led.

Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc’s immortal ex–the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes. For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he’ll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he’s coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child’s training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart…

Why did you write this book?

I’ve written three other books in this series, and it’s been fun to see different aspects of the characters unfolding. In At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, Senth is a young man falling in love for the first time. In For Women Only, he’s in danger and needs saving by his big brother. In Bro, he’s meeting that brother for the first time, at age eighteen. And in A Stolen Heart, he’s all of three years old and stealing the heart of his soon-to-be adoptive father. I mean look at that face. Who could say no to that face?

What is your favorite genre to read?

I bounce around among Suspense, Regency Romance, Sci-Fi, and contemporary gay romance. I love stories with happy ever afters or happy for nows. I also read a lot of non-fiction.

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

Roarke from JD Robb’s In Death series.

Who are your favorite writers?

JD Robb, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, JR Ward, Beverley Oakley, Alexa Aston, Heather Gladney, Mary Renault… I’ll stop, but there are plenty more. I read a lot.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m taking a short break from writing because I just finished a huge book. My brain and psyche need a reset. I anticipate starting the next book in about a month.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

On the agenda: I’ve finished Surrender Love and Forbid My Heart, both in the Surrender series. I’m hoping to write Surrender Trust next. Then comes Crystal Clear Truth (Antonello Brothers), and two books in the Bringer of Chaos series: Watch Your Six, and Ghost of a Chance. That’s the plan, anyway. But you know how life is. I didn’t plan to write A Stolen Heart, but it’s one of my favorite stories now that I’ve finished it. It’s the perfect book to read if you’ve never read anything of mine before.

Romance and Rescues at the Cat Café by Kris Bock

Genre sweet romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Can getting stranded in a creepy house full of abandoned cats turn these enemies into friends – or even something more?

After a rotten week, Holly jumps at the chance to go on a rescue mission. Dozens of cats are stranded in a remote house where the owner has died. They’ve been abandoned, and she can sympathize. But she did not agree to make the road trip with Dustin, her rival and biggest headache at the cat café where they both work.

Dustin has given up trying to get Holly to like him. Still, a long drive through a snowstorm and an overnight in a house full of cats might bring them together – or result in his violent demise. But what they find is worse than they ever imagined – no lights, no heat, the snow still coming down, and over twenty hungry, skittish cats. They’ll have to work as a team to survive and save the animals.

One thing is certain – if they make it back alive, their relationship won’t be the same.

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at a small-town cat café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Each book is a complete story with a happy ending for one couple (and maybe more than one rescued cat). These sweet romances will leave you with the warm, cozy feeling of cuddling a purring cat.

If you enjoy the tropes two against the world, forced proximity, and antagonist to lovers or enemies to lovers, check out Romance and Rescues at the Cat Café. You’ll also find rescue cats with plenty of personality and their own ideas about love.
