A collection of stories. Can include more than one author and/or genre.

Anthology: Blue Collar Boys Behaving Badly @DelilahDevlin @Adele_Downs #RLFblog #contemporary #romanceToday’s featured book is Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology, by Delilah Devlin, Adele Downs, and 14 more.

When it comes to love…Blue Collar is better!

It’s time to set aside those sexy billionaires and enjoy stories about the everyday, even sexier bad boys you meet in real life. They may have dirty hands and wear tool belts and jeans instead of Rolex watches, but they’re earthy alpha males unafraid to get down and dirty when face to face with a woman in need–whatever her need may be!

Just a few of the titillating stories inside…

In “Elevation” by Megan Mitcham, an always-in-control policewoman trapped in an elevator shaft gets a sexy rescue from the handsome repairman. A lonely woman drives a thousand miles to meet an oil field roughneck ready for a long night of laying pipe in Mia Hopkins’ “We Drill Deep While Others Sleep”. Jennifer Kacey shows the lengths to which an enterprising gal will go to get the owner of an oil change shop to check her fluids in “The Boss”. And those are just a few of the sexy stories inside this collection about the everyday hero next door, including “Upside Down Love” by Adele Downs.

These are men who’ve built their powerful muscles from hard work rather than inside any gym, and they sure know how to use their hard-earned skills to pleasure a woman…

floundering company back up to its glory days. But when he discovers the
stunning woman he’d spotted at a party is hiring, he decides to go undercover
as “Dirk Mulligan”, administrative assistant extraordinaire. Besides, he and
Suzette have a common problem: takeover King Mark Adams. Maybe they can find a
solution together plus a little holiday bonus as well. The Littlest Angel by

Venice, and into the arms of the handsome and intriguing Danté. But she is not

favor, including revealing the truth about Lady Rothchild. Will Roxanne be able
to put her blemished past behind her and find love, and will she have the
courage to reach for a promise of forever?

Bad Luck Partners by Cara Marsi:

Holidays have never brought Las Vegas hotel concierge Laney

Year’s Eve alone with no romantic entanglements. But when her hunky new
neighbor locks himself out of his apartment, she can’t leave him standing in
the hallway. What’s a girl to do?
Las Vegas is just a pit stop for Chicago native and radio
personality Chance Carlisle while he waits for his agent to land him something
bigger in L.A. But in the meantime, he keeps bumping into—literally—his adorable,
but accident-prone, neighbor. Their private New Year’s Eve celebration leads to
a plan: they’ll become the Bad Luck Partners, dating only on holidays and

But Fate might have something else in mind for the klutzy
cutie and the hotshot talk show host. Can their temporary partnership become a
forever deal?

Eight erotic sci-fi romance novellas and two short stories in
one box set.
Quinn and Xindra learn from their near-disastrous wedding night
and design a course to teach other interracial couples about the sexual practices
and customs on their planet. More than just an anatomy lesson, this course is hands-on
and definitely steamy.
Xindra’s friend Mera is the first to benefit when she meets and
falls for Sex Ed student Trett. As an Ibration, Trett doesn’t thrust during sex.
His penis vibrates.
Katra and Krux snipe at each other until they land in bed, where
Krux’s four arms come in handy.
Their classmate, Spri, can form a psychic bridge between her
and her partner that doubles their pleasure, but she can’t share the experience
with Whitt unless he matures and overcomes his commitment phobia.
Varion is crazy about Benni, a natural contortionist, but it’s

race that changes gender every month. He struggles to accept that the woman he loves
may also be the man he loves.
As a Semhym, Glynn must find a woman with just the right chemistry

Four-armed Valene is madly in love with Apax, but making a mixed-race
relationship work is tough. Can these lovers negotiate a life together, or are their
worlds too different?

This quick interview includes info about the author, and
introduces the story.

About the Author

Award-winning
author, Vicki Batman, has sold many romantic comedy works to the True
magazines, several publishers, and most recently, two romantic comedy mysteries
to The Wild Rose Press. She is a member of Romance Writers of America,
Sisters in Crime, and several writing groups. An avid Jazzerciser. Handbag
lover. Mahjong player. Yoga practitioner. Movie fan. Book devourer.
Chocoaholic. Best Mom ever. And adores Handsome Hubby. Most days begin with her hands set to the
keyboard and thinking “What if??”

Interview with Vicki Batman

Why did you write
this book?
Last year, I was asked to participate in the Season of Magic
holiday anthology. It did really really well and when asked to participate
again, I said yes. But I wrote this particular story because of my love for
handbags, specifically Enid Collins bags. They are wonderful stenciled and
jeweled creations originally sold through Neiman Marcus. I love them. And
created my own brand with a design for this holiday story.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I cut my teeth on mysteries like the Bobbsey Twins, Nancy
Drew and Trixie Belden; so I am a huge mystery fan. I also like contemporary
romance, especially with a touch of humor. And historical romances sweep me
away like a Calgon moment.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I love wacky Stephanie Plum but mostly because Janet E.
writes stories with humor. When I finished my first one to read, Four to Score,
I fell in love with Janet E’s humor and said, “Finally.”
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m doing edits on Temporarily Insane, a romantic comedy
mystery. AND yes, there will be another holiday anthology next year. Mine is
tentatively entitled The Littliest Angel. I have a great backstory to share. I
have a few more stories banked and I’m looking for a good spot for them.
Please tell us about
your latest book.

Into the Flames 
This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.

Interview with N.J. Walters

Why did you write this book?

I wrote my novella Rescue Me as part of the Into the Flames boxed set. Firefighters are dust and ash-covered heroes who defy the odds and press on in the presence of danger.Firefighter Frank Ellis is a man with a huge secret, and he’s spent his whole adult life trying to atone for past mistakes. Like any man, Frank has secret fantasies. He doesn’t want money or power or lots of women. His fantasy is much simpler, but one he’d thinks he’ll never have—a regular life with one particular woman. He’s given up hope of that ever happening when she comes back into his life, bringing with her hope and new life to his fantasies.

What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, of course. I love all genres of romance, but my favorites are probably paranormal, contemporary and romantic suspense. I do love a good historical too.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
This is such a tough question. I have so many fictional characters I love. One of my favorites has to be Eve Dallas, from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. She is one kickass heroine, but she does have a softer side, no matter how much she tries to hide it.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m currently working on a new book for my Salvation Pack werewolf series. I’d originally planned on it being a five-book series, but I’m currently working on book nine. I have four Salvation Pack books due out in the next year. It’s exciting.
Please tell us about your latest book.

This quick interview includes info about the author, and
introduces the story.

About the Author

Freya Lange is a
writer in her early 30s who lives in the Midwest. She has been writing plays,
poems and short stories for years, but started writing romance and erotica in
early 2014. She’s very excited to be able to reach new readers through her
latest book, Hot Summer Reads, an anthology where she not only contributed her
own story, she served as managing editor.

Interview with Freya Lange

Why did you write
this book?
For me, spring is the time to say “yes” to new things; I couldn’t think
of anything I wanted to do more this spring than write with my friends. We
started with a basic theme of “summer” so we could all write to our own
strengths and interests while still putting out a fun anthology for new readers.
For many of the authors who contributed, they had no experience publishing a
story as an eBook. I saw it as a good way to for some of my friends, who are all
amazing storytellers, to not only reach a new audience for their writing but
also to dip their toes into publishing on Amazon.
When I pitched the idea of this
anthology to the authors involved, I wasn’t prepared for the overwhelmingly
enthusiastic reaction. When I step back to see it in context, though, it make
perfect sense. Like kids writing home from summer camp, we’re straining at the
seams to contain all the things we want to tell you about what we’re learning
and getting to do, about all our wonderful new friends and their amazing
talents.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I read a wide variety of books and short stories, but
historical fiction is probably my favorite.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
In Hot Summer Reads, it is, without
a doubt, Jesse from “Keys To the Sun,” by Shea Mara. If you’re not in love with
Jesse halfway through that story, something is broken inside of you and
rattling around like a quarter in an empty washing machine.
In other books, I never get tired
of reading about John Childermass from Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange &
Mr. Norrell. I love his combination of practical and mysterious.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
Look for almost all of the authors
who contributed to Hot Summer Reads to have new stories up on Amazon in May and
June. If you really love a story and want more from the author, please, let
them know! We’re all very responsive to our fans.
From me, personally, readers can
catch a new story from me every Monday. I call them Little Black Dresses
because they’re short, hot, and perfect for the right occasion. Every month I
pick a different theme to write about so I can keep my imagination fresh and respond
to what readers tell me they want to see. I’m also working on some longer books
for readers who like their paranormal heroines to be more in charge of their
own destinies – look for the first book of the Alphas’ Omega series later this
month.   
Please tell us about
your latest book.
