Truth and Solace by Jana Richards

The truth could destroy them. Or set them free.
Maggie Lindquist left Solace Lake determined never to return. Circumstances have pulled her back and she’s helping to restore her family’s dilapidated fishing lodge. When she agreed to the plan she didn’t expect to have to work side by side with the man who abandoned her ten years earlier. She didn’t expect to like him, or want him ever again. But can she trust him as she once did?
Luke Carlsson rushes home to tend to his ailing mother. Her lengthy illness means he needs to stay, at least temporarily. And to stay, he needs to work. Solace Lake Lodge offers him a job and an opportunity to work with the woman he’s never stopped loving. But the restoration is unleashing secrets hidden for decades and no one is left unscathed. Especially not Maggie and Luke, whose love needs to be resilient enough to forgive, and strong enough to build a future together.

Hart’s Desire by Chloe Flowers

An independent young lady meets a bold merchant captain pursued by a band of pirates…what could possibly go wrong?
Fiercely independent and equally impetuous Keelan Grey acts the dutiful daughter on the outside, but inside, she’s determined to avoid marriage to a cruel neighboring plantation owner even if it means taking the most desperate measures. Everything changes when a deathbed confession from a loved one plunges her into a dark plot of deception and revenge. Desperate for help, Keelan finds an unlikely ally in the antagonistic but irresistible sea captain, Landon Hart.
Rakishly handsome and equally exasperating Landon Hart is a Freedom Runner-part of a network of people moving runaways to a new life up North. When he meets a sword-wielding, fiery-haired temptress on the way, he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart…nor the trouble she manages to attract.

The Mad Monk’s Treasure – a romantic adventure
When a quiet history professor uncovers a clue to the legendary lost Victorio Peak treasure, she prepares for adventure. But she’s not the only one interested. Is the handsome pilot who rescued her a hero or the enemy?
The lost Victorio Peak treasure is the stuff of legends—a heretic Spanish priest’s gold mine, made richer by the spoils of bandits and an Apache raider. When Erin, a quiet history professor, uncovers a clue that may pinpoint the lost treasure cave, she prepares for adventure. But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she’s not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy?
Erin isn’t sure she can trust Drew with her heart, but she’ll need his help to track down the treasure. She heads into the New Mexico wilderness with her brainy best friend Camie and a feisty orange cat. The wilderness holds its own dangers, from wild animals to sudden storms. Plus, the sinister men hunting Erin are determined to follow her all the way to the treasure, no matter where the twisted trail leads. Erin won’t give up an important historical find without a fight, but is she ready to risk her life—and her heart?

Arrested by Love by Kathryn R Blake

She broke the law to catch a police officer. Only he caught her first, and then put her over his knee.
Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old. Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx’s lures, Kyle has to finally admit that he is losing the battle–badly.
That is until Tiffany’s attention-seeking pranks escalate to the point of endangering her life.
Kyle is a firm supporter of law and order, and a man’s rightful dominion over the woman he loves. So, to make sure Tiffany understands and accepts his mastery when it comes to her safety and well-being, Kyle lays down the law, and his hand, with loving firmness. Tiffany will learn to obey, or else. Especially now that he’s decided she’ll be his wife.

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.
