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.

Read the new book Call It Love by Laura Haley-McNeil @laurarmcneil #RLFblog #NewRelease #Sweet RomanceLaura Haley-McNeil, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Call It Love.

Call It Love by Laura Haley-McNeil

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

A kiss isn’t just a kiss…

Struggling actress Addison Duvall hustles background acting jobs at the Hollywood studios in hopes for her big break. When she’s cast as the stand in for the lead actress in a blockbuster spy film, she can’t believe her luck. The surprises rush in―her first test shot is with Hollywood heartthrob Spencer Kingsley. Her even bigger surprise is when the director yells, “Action!” and Spencer presses his lips to hers in a kiss.

Behind Spencer’s Hollywood façade hides the secret pain no one suspects. He’s the first to take a risk except when it comes to his heart. He can’t deny he and Addison have chemistry―chemistry onscreen and off―and he’s tempted to lower his guard. She seems real, not like the women he usually meets.

Once Addison’s star rises, so do Spencer’s doubts. She’s no different than the others looking for the connection to catapult their careers. He won’t let another woman damage his heart. His decision made, Spencer wishes her success.

But it’s already too late. How does he heal this Addison shaped hole in his heart? Should he risk more heartbreak for another chance at love?

Wherever Love Finds You, Book 1

When Love Whispers, Book 2

Call It Love, Book 3

If you love sweet romance, download a sample or buy Call It Love now.

Why did you write this book?

Addison Duvall has appeared in Wherever Love Finds You and When Love Whispers and I knew the next book should be hers. I wanted this book to be a Hollywood romance, but I wasn’t sure what her career focus would be. As I toyed with some ideas for her, I remembered that many years ago I worked as an extra on some Hollywood films, so I dug inside my memory and began to develop Addison’s acting background and she became one of those background actors looking for her big break. And when she’s an extra on the same set as megastar Spencer Kingsley, sparks fly.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Anything romance. I love a conflict between two larger than life characters that appears insurmountable until one of them is faced with the decision of what’s more important―the reason the characters stepped into this story or the love they know they can’t live without.

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

I can only pick one? That’s difficult. Different characters resonate with me for different reasons. Lauren Gibbs in Ever After by Karen Kingsbury is a memorable one. She’s determined in her convictions until she has to make the decision of what means more to her―her goals or being with the only man who’s ever made her happy.

What are you working on at the moment?

It’s been two years since I’ve written a Crystal Creek book, and I’ve finally had a chance to revisit that Colorado town and the Whitlochs. Their cousin, Eli Merrick, was recently discharged from the marines and is returning to his first love―traveling the country to enter saddle bronc competitions at rodeos. Pregnant Lily Harkins has escaped an abusive marriage. When these characters meet, they have to decide what’s really important.

This book has been a blast to research and I’ve met some amazing people who’ve taught me a lot about rodeos. Even though I’ve attended rodeos there was a ton of information I didn’t know so it was great to learn the behind-the-scenes information that I can reveal in this book.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The Billionaire’s Christmas Gift, Book 1 of the Christmas Billionaires Series will be released this fall, and hopefully the 2nd book in the series, as yet untitled, along with Book 8 of the Crystal Creek Series, as yet untitled.

Relive small town memories in Sommerville Holidays by Vicki Batman @Vicki Batman #RLFblog #RomanticComedy Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Sommerville Holidays.

Sommerville Holidays by Vicki Batman

Genre: Romantic comedy short stories

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Hopes and wishes and holiday kisses…Sommerville holidays.

Story Blurb: Holiday Disaster: Days before Christmas, a librarian experiences plumbing issues and visits from Mr. Maintenance Man who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Claus.

The Littlest Angel: Two people. One ornament for the tree. Can a twosome find common ground and discover the true meaning of Christmas?

Holiday Handbag Extravaganza: Christmas Countdown is on! A hunk-a-licious customer pesters a boutique owner to locate a vintage handbag for his mother. Too bad the wedge between them is his sister, the meanest girl in town.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

I write romantic comedy mysteries (the Hattie Cook mystery series) and romantic comedy short stories.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Oh my! Every story is different. For “Holiday Disaster,” I really did have an incident when I was a single girl and dropped my contact down the drain. I had little money to buy a new one; so there was no choice but to call Mr. Maintenance Man. However, the guy wasn’t nearly as much fun as my fictional guy. In “The Littlest Angel” I based the story on a Christmas ornament a family friend gave my mom. In “Holiday Handbag Extravaganza,” I pay tribute to a favorite handbag designer, Enid Collins.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Getting the story right. I work and work before it is edited and then work some more. I confess, I’m a slow writer.

When did you write your first book?…

I began writing sixteen years ago. Wow! Time has flown by.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather-handbags. LOL

Black or red? Love red. Wear black.

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, preferably soft flannel.

Ocean or mountains? Mountains.

City life or country life? City life.

Party life or evening at home? Evening at home watching The Holiday Baking Championship with Handsome

Dogs or cats? Both!

Tea and Temptation at the Cat Café by Kris Bock

Genre sweet romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Can two lonely people get a second chance at finding love?

Zach may be a best-selling novelist, but it’s been a long time since he’s felt truly alive. In the last six months, he moved to the country, his wife left him, and he was diagnosed with cancer. Now he lives in a haze of treatments, writer’s block, and simply trying to survive each week. But when a pretty woman comes into his favorite café and throws herself down on a padded bench with a groan of despair, he feels something he thought he’d lost: curiosity.

As a veterinarian, Jenna knows both joy and heartbreak. The former she can share with her clients. The latter she keeps to herself. She learned one lesson from her ex-husband: Men don’t want to deal with your emotions. It’s odd to have a stranger ask about her problems. It’s even more of a shock when he offers to solve one of them by fostering the sick kitten abandoned by its owners.

Zach and Jenna bond over kitten care and build a close friendship. Could they have more? Zach is finally starting to hope for a future, ideally one that includes Jenna, but he can’t move forward until he’s dealt with his past. Meanwhile, Jenna is afraid to risk her heart on someone who might not survive the next few months.

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at the Furrever Friends Cat Café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Book 1, Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café, is free Feb 7-11! You can also get a free 10,000-word novella set in the world of the Furrever Friends cat café when you sign up for the Kris Bock newsletter.

If you enjoy friends to lovers tropes, or seasoned romance/mature romance, check out Tea and Temptation at the Cat Café. You’ll also find rescue cats with plenty of personality and their own ideas about love.

Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café by Kris Bock

Genre sweet romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

He’s loved her forever. She still sees him as the neighbor kid. Can five desperate kittens bring them together?

Marley is a baker at the new Furrever Friends Cat Café, which is still trying to find its footing. Her nine-year-old son, Brian, desperately wants a kitten, but they can’t have pets where they live. Who has the time to date? Just as well that she’s protected her heart since the father of her child disappeared.

Adam has loved Marley since he was 13, and she was his best friend’s free-spirited older sister. Back then, he fantasized about rescuing her from bandits or dragons. Now he’s 24, and the five-year age gap isn’t so serious. He wants nothing more than to become a family with Marley and her son. But will she ever see him as a man?

When someone leaves a box of week-old kittens at the café, Adam jumps at the chance to be a hero. But herding kittens might be tougher than fighting dragons, especially when two of them fail to thrive. Can Adam, Marley, and Brian save the kittens and find a future together?

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.
