Moonlight Match by Kristina Knight

Genre: Sweet romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Aster Harrington believes in love but love doesn’t seem to believe in her. She’s hoping Goldie and Ginny, the matchmakers who’ve matched on two generations of Harringtons, can work a little love magic for her…
Some call Ethan Talbot rigid, but he prefers to think of himself as prepared. Unfortunately, when he’s matched with Aster Harrington at Joy Island’s Matchmaking Week, all those carefully prepared plans go out the window. He can get back to finding a suitable wife once he’s home in New York. After all, how much damage can one week in the Bahamas do to his plans?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes! I write contemporary romance and women’s fiction, although I’m still awaiting a publication date on my first women’s fiction novel!
How do you come up with ideas?…
Ideas come to me all the time – I’ll overhear a bit of a conversation, or people-watching at the mall will make me wonder, or a movie…ideas are everywhere, we just have to look for them!
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Getting that first draft down. I’m a big believer in “you can’t edit a blank page” and there are times, in every first draft, when I just don’t want to. I’m stuck or I’m not connecting with the characters or…heck, it’s a beautiful, sunshiney day after a long, gray winter…those are the days that I just have to push through because if I don’t get the draft down then I can’t make it pretty – and publishable!
When did you write your first book?…
I’ve been writing stories as long as I can remember. My first attempt at an actual book was in 6th grade – I wrote a girl-power, Three Musketeers story. It was so much fun, and probably completely awful (I lost it, boo!), but it definitely made me want to write more.

FUN

Leather or lace? – lace, leather makes you sweaty!
Black or red? – black, the better to blend!
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? – the smoothest of cotton
Ocean or mountains? – Ocean. Most of the time.
City life or country life? – Country – but close enough to the city for a night out!
Party life or evening at home? – Evening at home, for sure!
Dogs or cats? – DOGS!!!!!!!

Moonlight Match by Kristina Knight

Genre Contemporary Romance

Why did you write this book?
I was asked to join the Resort to Romance continuity last spring, and the concept was so much fun I couldn’t say no! All the books are standalone, all are sweet romance, and they’re filled with uplifting romance, laughter, and characters you just want to root for!
What is your favorite genre to read?
It depends on my mood. I read a LOT of contemporary romance, but romantic suspense is another favorite.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Gosh, another toughie! I’m going to say Jo from Little Women because she’s a little persnickety, but she is also such a caring person.
What are you working on at the moment?
I have a couple of books going on right now. I’m working on a women’s fiction novel, set in the Mediterranean and a cowboy series (contemporary, of course!) set in Nebraska.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’m releasing my next Slippery Rock book in a couple of months and will have more details on release dates for my contemporary cowboy and women’s fiction books in a few weeks. Yay!

I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Today Romance Lives Forever features one of my books, A Romance for Christmas. I wrote this for friends, who kept telling me to publish it. I wasn’t sure there was a market for a Christmas romance in which the hero and heroine never even kiss. It was adorable, yes, but had no spice, so I set it aside for many years. Finally, I decided to go for it. This little story has been my best-selling book for many years. Who knew? I usually write science fiction and science fiction romance, even non-fiction, but this is my only contemporary book. Maybe it needs a sequel…

A Romance for Christmas by Kayelle Allen

Snowbound with Mr Wrong by Barbara White Daille @BarbaraWDaille #RLFblog #sweetromance #snowToday’s featured book is Snowbound with Mr Wrong, a sweet romance by Barbara White Daille.

Snowbound with Mr Wrong by Barbara White Daille

Genre: Sweet romance
Book heat level: PG
Worst. Day. Ever. After Lyssa Barnett’s sister tricks her into reprising her role at Snowflake Valley’s annual children’s party, she doesn’t think anything can be worse than squeezing into her too-small elf costume. Then tall, dark, and way too handsome Nick Tavlock shows up to play Santa…and an unexpected storm leaves them snowbound in the isolated lodge.
The last thing Nick wants is to spend a cozy Christmas Eve with a trio of kids and the woman who dumped him. But as much as Lyssa frustrates him, he can’t stop thinking about her. And soon, he’s fighting very un-Santa-like thoughts of kissing a certain sexy Miss Elf under the mistletoe. As Nick starts to fall for Lyssa all over again, he knows it will take nothing short of a miracle to have Lyssa in his arms on Christmas Day.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 by Milou Koenings @MilouKoenings #RLFblog #NewRelease #sweetromanceMilou Koenings, 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.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 by Milou Koenings

Genre Sweet Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
When a supermodel with a string of bad news boyfriends “wins” a volunteer firefighter at a charity bachelor auction, Rose and Ryan might both discover they’ve found their perfect Christmas match. A fun and romantic holiday tale set in the fictional town of Green Pines, Illinois.
The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction is part of Sweet Christmas Kisses 5, a box set of nince sweet romance novellas, from USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, and award-winning authors. Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 brings you heartwarming contemporary romances that celebrate the joy of the season around the world, including in snowy Maine and the sun-kissed skies of Florida, the mountains of Colorado, small-town Illinois and South Carolina, New York to San Francisco, and even the glittering lights of Paris and the old-world charm of Florence. The Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 bundle features all-new, standalone novellas that will make you smile and fill your heart with the Christmas spirit.
Why did you write this book?
The book was spark by a conversation I overheard when I was standing in line somewhere. The two women waiting in front me were sharing the stories of how they’d met their husbands. One of them said that she’d met hers when her friends “bought” him for her at a bachelor auction. Well, that was just too good a scenario not to make it into a book someday! The idea was percolating in my mind for a long time. So, when I was invited to be part of the Sweet Christmas Kisses 5, a box set of nine standalone novellas, I thought this was the perfect time to write it. What better Christmas gift than true love?
The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction is the sixth book in the Green Pines Romance series. The hero appeared in the very first book in that series, when he was just a troubled teenager. I loved him then and always wondered what kind of man he’d grow into and how he’d get his life together. It was so gratifying to discover that he’d turned into such a great guy!
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, of course. Love’s the greatest gift, so who wouldn’t want to read about it? Plus, the older I get, the more I crave those happy endings.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That depends on what I’m reading at any given moment. Right now, I’m loving Molly Weasley all over again. (It’s my annual Harry Potter binge-reading month!)
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m busy writing a brand-new sweet romance series to be released early next year. It’s a trilogy focused on three friends who go into business together. I’m having a lot of fun with it.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In October, I’m launching The Gift of Yesterday, which is actually book five of the Green Pines Romance series. The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction will be out as a stand-alone in November (although you can’t beat the Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 deal–nine books for the price of one–so get it now!). The new series is slated for release early next year, which should also see the release of the next Green Pines novel.

Is It True: Blast from Her Past by Katy Eeten @KatyEeten #RLFblog #RomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Katy Eeten, author of Blast From her Past, a contemporary inspirational romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Blast from Her Past

Genre: Inspirational Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

After a disastrous failed engagement, Sydney Hampson is leaving her past—and her faith—behind to focus on her career instead. Following through with her new, albeit misguided, resolution proves easier said than done when former classmate, and reformed bully, Grant Williams signs on with her company, and they must work closely together.
Grant Williams gave up his teenage antics years ago, and now he’s looking forward to a future that includes a strong relationship with God. When he realizes he’ll be working with none other than Sydney Hampson—the girl he had a secret crush on throughout high school—he couldn’t be more thrilled. Until he discovers she’s not the same caring, compassionate woman she used to be.
When a business trip gone awry leaves the pair stranded in the middle of a snowstorm, Grant sees his chance to make things right and put their past wrongs behind them…if only Sydney can get over her distrust of men. And with a conniving coworker intent on destroying Sydney’s happiness, can she put her faith back in God and learn to trust in Grant before she loses her chance at happiness?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Yes.
this book is part of a series?
No, it’s a stand-alone.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes. I have a full-time job and two school-age kids, so I have to squeeze in writing sessions when I can – even late at night.
you did research for this book?
Yes, but only small stuff. For example, I had to find out if people in North Dakota call it “soda” or “pop,” what could cause a car to suddenly break down, and the distance between various locations in the Dakota states.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
No. All humans.
this book has more than one genre?
No. It’s a straight-up Christian romance.
you speak more than one language?
No. I did take four years of Spanish in high school and two semesters in college, but that was a while ago and I’ve not put it to use.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes. I moved away for several years, but just last year I moved back and bought a house in the same city where I grew up.
you love to read?
Yes, but I don’t have a lot of time to do so and it takes a while for me to get sucked into a book. Once I am, I can’t put it down!
you are never late?
Well … I used to be overly punctual. Now that I have kids, I’m typically just on time (if I’m lucky!).
you love pizza?
Yes!
you love sushi?
No. Never had it and never want to. I’m not very adventurous and I don’t like seafood of any kind.
you have a pet?
No. Just two kids.
