Bitter Legacy by CB Clark @cbclarkauthor #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseWelcome CB Clark, author of Bitter Legacy, a new Romantic Suspense.

Why did you write this book?

The plot of my recent release came from hearing of terrible tragedy. Fires in sawmills are a big concern. With clouds of highly combustible sawdust clogging the air and piles of kiln-dried lumber in the yards, explosions and fires are not uncommon.

These devastating disasters provided me with the idea behind my latest story. The hero and heroine are combative owners of a multi-million dollar lumber mill, the town’s main employer. What would happen if the sawmill was destroyed by a fire? What if someone deliberately set that fire? The owners must work together to find the arsonist and save the town by rebuilding the mill. Can they find love amidst this tragedy?

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read all genres of fiction, but my sweet spot is romantic suspense.

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

Eve Dallas, the heroine in J.D. Robb’s romantic suspense novels is a strong, independent woman with a surprising soft side.

What are you working on at the moment?

Bitter Legacy is my third romantic suspense novel. I’m working on a fourth book where the heroine escapes from an abusive husband whom the police suspect is responsible for the murder of a wealthy publisher. With the help of a ruggedly handsome homicide detective, the heroine tracks down the killer and finds love.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’ve submitted another romantic suspense to my publisher. If that manuscript is accepted, it could be published within the next year. I’d like to try and release two books a year, but my daughter just had identical twin boys, so that could be a challenge.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre Romantic Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Sharla-Jean Bromley returns to her hometown after a seventeen-year absence with vengeance in her heart. From the very beginning, her plans go awry when she meets devastatingly handsome Josh Morgan, the man to whom her father left half of his multi-million dollar lumber mill.

Josh, suspicious of Sharla-Jean’s reasons for returning to town after such a long absence, vows to keep control of the company he feels is rightfully his. She is equally determined to prove she can run her father’s mill, even though it means working side-by-side with Josh, a man whose very presence evokes an attraction that is increasingly difficult for her to ignore. In the process, they must overcome a villain who’s determined to destroy both the lumber mill and their lives.

Will Sharla-Jean succeed and heal the anguish that has long filled her soul? Will she and Josh find the passion of a lifetime?

More Beginnings by Iris Blobel @_iris_ b #RLFblog #RomanceWelcome Iris Blobel author of More Beginnings, a new Contemporary Romance.

Why did you write this book?

More Beginnings is the second book in the Beginnings series. A few years ago, I travelled to Hobart in Tasmania and instantly fell in love with the city. Despite Hobart being a capital, it is small compared to other major cities in Australia, so I thought about characters moving from Sydney. It snow balled from there: the first book New Beginnings tells the story about Sophie and Mia Levesque’s move and their new start. I loved the characters, so Sophie’s neighbour, Zach, was given his own story as well.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I like a good mystery or crime story. After all these years, I still love the Jack Reacher stories by Lee Child.

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

I’d say Jack Reacher. But there’s also Jax and Sawyer from Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series. And I looooove Ivan from “If You Could See Me Now” by Cecelia Ahern

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently polishing the last Beginnings book “Fresh Beginnings” for re-release. At the same time I’m adding the final touch of a book which is mainly set in New Zealand – something different for me, and I cannot wait for it to be released.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I have to be really patient and take it one step after the other. As mentioned before, I’m hoping to re-release “Fresh Beginnings”, release my NZ story, and finish my “Fermosa Bay” trilogy. Exciting times ahead!

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Zach Taylor, an escort in Sydney, living in Hobart, enlists the help of Natasha Peterson when his teenage friend, Mia, runs away. He soon finds out that the ‘dragon’ is really more of a kitten. And although Natasha, Mia’s teacher, is attracted to him as well, she has her own problems to deal with, not to mention her initial reaction to Zach’s occupation.

Will Zach’s job keep him from a chance to be with Natasha?

Life is good for teenager Mia Levesque. But when Darren Schuster shows up in Hobart, she knows something is up once Sophie and Mark cut their weekend away short and rush home in the middle of the night. When Sophie won’t answer Mia’s questions, emotions run high, and Zach confirms Darren’s identity to Mia. Disappointed, angry, and feeling alone, Mia runs away.

Will life settle back into a routine for Mia once she finds out about the stranger in her life?

Drakon's Prey by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #PNRWelcome NJ Walters author of Drakon’s Prey, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Drakon’s Prey is the second book in the new Blood of the Drakon series. A drakon is the son of a dragon and a human woman. I started this series with the premise of four drakons, all half brothers (same drakon sire, different mothers). They are 4000 years old and they have an enemy who will stop at nothing to capture and control them. Not only do drakons have great wealth, but their blood will cure all disease and prolong the life of the human drinking it. This is Tarrant’s story.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. No surprise there. I love all kinds of romance—paranormal, historical, contemporary, and romantic suspense. I also like nonfiction and tend to read a lot of self help/spiritual books as well.

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

That’s a tough one. There are so many. Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s In Death series is right up there. She’s tough and smart, but has a tender side, which she shows very reluctantly. I’ve read the entire series and am always waiting for the next book.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on another drakon book for the series.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Lots happening in the coming months. My new publisher, Entangled, will be rereleasing my entire Samhain Publishing backlist (over 30 books), which was taken down with Samhain Publishing closed. I also have a new drakon book—Drakon’s Plunder—on July 3rd.

I’m thrilled to be part of an incredible anthology—Blue Collar: A Boys Behaving Badly anthology. My story is “Roadside Assistance.” It is available on June 13th, and can be pre-ordered for only 99-cents on Amazon.

The remaining three books in my Dalakis Passion vampire series will be rereleased between now and the end of the year. And there will probably be more.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

Amorous Redemption by Faye Hall @FayeHall79 #RLFblog #HistoricalRomanceWelcome Faye Hall author of Amorous Redemption, a new Historical Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Amorous Redemption came about because of the stories I was told of my great grandmother’s family and the station, Inkerman Downs Station, they took ownership of upon migrating to Australia. There was some real controversy about her marriage and this was my take on that.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Historical Romance

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

My all-time favorite fictional is Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’ve just been contracted for my eighth book, Heart of Stone, so am waiting for edits to start. In the meantime I’m writing my seven book series about the sins of humanity.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Heart of Stone should hopefully be out later this year with Beachwalk Press. It is an intriguing tale of an Australian slave trader who falls in love with an Irish slave.

Please tell us about your latest book.

In Faye Hall’s Amorous Redemption, Phoebe Porter’s family needed her dead if they were to gain control of her substantial cattle station and vast fortune. She ran away from her home desperate to save her life, but she ran straight into the arms of the bounty hunter that had been sent after her. She fought against him the whole journey from Ravenswood back to her home but eventually all she could do was surrender her heart and body to him.

Publisher Red Sage Publishing

Faye Hall Social Media

Faye’s passion driven, mystery filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during the late 1800’s. Each of her novels brings something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.

Each of her books tells of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder. These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland. Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.

Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their nine children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Gallowglass by Jennifer Allis Provost @parthalan #RLFblog #urbanfantasyWelcome Jennifer Allis Provost author of Gallowglass, a new urban fantasy.

Why did you write this book?

I originally set out to write this book almost ten years ago. I was researching Celtic myths when I came across a book written in the seventeenth century called The Secret commonwealth of elves, Fauns, and Fairies, which was notorious because the author—one Robert Kirk–had supposedly angered the fairies by revealing their secrets, so they captured him and imprisoned him in a tree. (For real. Go ahead, Google it. I’ll wait.)

Anyway, I couldn’t stop thinking about Robert, wondering if he was really stuck in the tree or if he got to wander around Fairyland, and eventually I decided that he’d become the Seelie Queen’s personal assassin, her gallowglass. And here we are today.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

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

Does R2D2 count?

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m finishing up the sequel to Gallowglass, Walker, and working on the fourth installment of my epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Parthalan. I’ve also got a Secret Project brewing, which has supernatural elements I’ve never worked with before. Exciting times!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Walker (Gallowglass #2), Golem (Parthalan #4) and the aforementioned Secret Project.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre urban fantasy, paranormal romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Karina didn’t set out to free the Seelie Queen’s gallowglass. Now she’ll do anything to keep him.

After Karina and her brother, Chris’s, lives fall apart in separate yet equally spectacular ways, they leave New York behind and head to the UK. Karina buries herself in research for her doctoral thesis, all the while studiously not thinking about the man who broke her heart, while Chris—who’d been a best-selling author before his ex-fiancée sued him for plagiarism—drinks his way across the British Isles.

In Scotland, they visit the grave of Robert Kirk, a seventeenth- century minister who was kidnapped by fairies. No one is more shocked than Karina when a handsome man with a Scottish brogue appears, claiming to be the Robert Kirk of legend. What’s more, he says he spent the last few hundred years as the Gallowglass, the Seelie Queen’s personal assassin. When they’re attacked by demons, Karina understands how dearly the queen wants him back.

As Karina and Robert grow closer, Chris’s attempts to drown his sorrows lead him to a pub, and a woman called Sorcha. Chris is instantly smitten with her, so much so he spends days with Sorcha and lies to his sister about his whereabouts. When Chris comes home covered in fey kisses, Karina realizes that the Seelie Queen isn’t just after Robert.

Can Karina outsmart the Seelie Queen, or is Robert doomed to forever be the Gallowglass?

Venus and Lysander by Yoshiyuki Ly @LyLikeLee #RLFblog #historical #romanceWelcome Yoshiyuki Ly author of Venus and Lysander, a new Historical Romance.

Why did you write this book?

LGBT historical romances typically focus on forbidden relationships. I decided to add fantasy elements and a made-up setting to mostly distance myself from that reality. It’s a fresh take on that type of era along with some social commentary so as to not make it completely unrealistic.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Philosophy.

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

Noah from Consider What Becomes of the Ashes by Pixelnyx. He goes through many hardships as a refugee in a foreign city. I admire his muted tenacity as he pushes on.

What are you working on at the moment?

A distant follow-up to Venus and Lysander that wraps up the plot I’ve built up in this world. It’s a romance with fantasy elements, but set in a more contemporary time period.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Hopefully the one I mentioned above.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre: Historical romance/fantasy.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R.

Living as a nobleman and as a woman, Valerie of Lysander is sick of waiting for the world to change. The discrimination she suffers as an outcast builds into resentment. Once Val takes matters into her own hands, the whole Empire of Tynan feels her brand of justice. The Emperor’s adviser, Lucrezia of Azrith, wants more of Val’s ruthlessness—for revenge against the unjust, and for her own desires. Venus and Lysander is an intricate romance set in the fictional Victorian city of Eden, 250 years after the events in The Scorpion’s Empress.

Lucrezia is Lady Chancellor for the Emperor and a sorceress-in-hiding. She is forced to conceal her identity from the religious public for fear of death. As she learns to trust in Val’s chivalry and affections for her, they both fall for the softer sides behind their similar bulletproof personas. Lucrezia receives a mysterious warning about a sadistic enemy threatening the Azrith and Lysander families. Once they discover their nemesis’ true motive, Val and Lucrezia’s tyrannous devotion for one another is all they can count on to survive.

Welcome Alina K Field, author of The Bastard’s Iberian Bride, a new Regency Romance.
Why did you write this book?
I had a secondary character in one of my earlier books who stuck with me and demanded his own romantic adventure. As it turned out, Bink Gibson was an illegitimate son of an earl who served as a spy lord for England
during the Napoleonic wars. While I like all the titled gentlemen who populate the Regency world, I had a great deal of fun writing a character who doesn’t quite fit in with his aristocratic father and siblings. The Bastard’s Iberian Bride is the first book in a series I’m calling Sons of the Spy Lord.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love historical romances, the more adventurous, the better.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
If I may have two: William Doyle, who appears in several of Joanna Bourne’s books, and is the hero of her book The Forbidden Rose, and Loretta Chase’s Rupert Carsington, the hero of her book Mr. Impossible.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m cleaning up Book 2 in the Sons of the Spy Lord series, doing final revisions.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll be releasing the second book in this series in late summer 2017, and the third book around the end of 2017.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre: Historical Romance, Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Daughter of spies
For a chance at true freedom, Paulette Heardwyn needs the fortune left her by her inscrutable father. But she doesn’t know what it is,
where it is, or how to find it, and the only man with answers, the Earl of Shaldon, takes his secrets to the grave. Worse, the dead earl tries to force her marriage to his bastard son—and leaves her prey to a traitor seeking the same treasure she’s after.
Soldier, Steward, Bastard Bink Gibson is ready to throw off his quiet life as steward to his old commander and head for India and the chance of prosperity. But before he can leave he’s summoned to the deathbed of the Earl of Shaldon, a meddling spymaster, a complete stranger…and his father.
And the Earl has set a trap Bink will never be able to resist.

Award winning author Alina K. Field earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and German literature, but her true passion is the much
happier world of romance fiction. Though her roots are in the Midwestern U.S., after six very, very, very cold years in Chicago, she moved to Southern California and hasn’t looked back. She shares a midcentury home with her husband, her spunky, blonde, rescued terrier, and the blue-eyed cat who conned his way in for dinner one day and decided the food was too good to leave.
She is the author of several Regency romances, including the 2014 Book Buyer’s Best winner, Rosalyn’s Ring. She is hard at work on her next series of Regency romances, but loves to hear from readers.

Welcome Cailin Briste author of It Takes a Cat Burglar, a new sci-fi romance.

Why did you write this book?

It Takes a Cat Burglar began with a prompt in a Goodreads group writing event. The characters wouldn’t keep to the prompts story line, so I put it aside and wrote another story for the group. I had thought of including it in a boxed set, but when that fell through I decided to self-publish the novella. Now I intend to write additional A Thief in Love Romances and make a series.

What is your favorite genre to read?

If you go by the number of books on my kindle, historical romance wins by a landslide, Regency romance in particular. I love the fantasy aspect of many of these novels.

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

My favorite character comes from the Foreigner series by C. J. Cherryh. Bren Cameron is the only human allowed to interact with the Atevi. Humans landed on the Atevi planet after a disaster separated them from human space. He’s supposed to be writing a dictionary that will allow the two species to talk effectively to one another. A difficult task because the Atevi are wired completely differently from humans. In the first book someone tries to kill him, and the entire series (20 books) is set in motion. I love his struggle to communicate, to find the words that have meaning to humans and Atevi, to keep the delicately balanced peace between the two species.

What are you working on at the moment?

My works in progress include a novella for the next SFR Shooting Stars anthology, the Cosmic Love Cabaret. It’s the love story of Master Trey from the first Sons of Tallav book Shane: Marshal of Tallav. He was a Dom at the Opio Institute, a sex school, but now works at the Whip Hand, a BDSM club. He’s been delegated the task of explaining dominance and submission to the newly hired creative director of the Whip Hand’s cabaret.

I’m also about a third of the way into Rand: Son of Tallav, the third book in the Sons of Tallav series. It’s the story of Randolph, the owner of the Whip Hand, and best friends of Shane and Maon, characters from the first two books. He’s a sadist, so this book is taking a lot of thought.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The Cosmic Love Cabaret boxed set will be available for pre-order in September and released in October.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Welcome Shari Elder author of Unnatural Allies, a new Paranormal Romance.

Why did you write this book?

Last year, Evernight published my novel, Shifter Trials. Although I had not planned for it to be part of a series, two of the secondary characters in the book—the wolf beta and heroine’s best friend, and a rat alpha – started bucking for their own story. Then I fell in love with the idea of a love story between a rat and a wolf. I like to push at rules, and this story definitely does that.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love science fiction, fantasy and paranormal stories, romance and non-romance. I just love to see how writers create new worlds, new rules of engagement, new species, and new cultures. It’s why I write them as well. I also love mysteries. Like romances with their HEAs, mysteries have to tie up the story by the end as well.

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

I have to share two, because I always like to have to have a male and a female. The first is Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings. He’s not the hero, yet the final victory (and happy ending) would not have succeeded without him. He’s the best friend, the sidekick, the shadow, on which the hero’s success ultimately rests. He’s a unique character, often overlooked, because his evolution is to become his best self, beyond what he thought he could be. And he gets the girl in the end.

The second is Ms.Jane Marple, because I adore the quiet, older character that everyone ignores. Yet it she who sees and hears everything, and ultimately is the only one who can figure it out. Reliable, loyal and kind, with depth and intelligence that comes out quietly in the acts of day to day life. Like Sam.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am working on a science fiction romance novel called the Scent of Memory, which is book 2 in my Green Rising Series. In this novel, a rebel computer genius is reunited with her fiancée, who she believed to be dead from a mining accident. Instead, he was rebuilt as a cyborg and had his memories wiped.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In addition, to the Scent of Memory, I am also working on book 3 in Shifting Alliances, where shifters continue their battle against the fae (see blurb below). In this novel, a cougar shifter and a fae man find love. I also plan to write a holiday hannukah story.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A World in Transition

Violent fae encroachment on shifter land is heating up. With death tolls rising, the impossible becomes necessary – an alliance among predator and prey shifters.

An Inconceivable Love

Nicca Baron, lone wolf and wolf clan beta, finds herself under the command of Evan Grant, the rat alpha. In different circumstances, he’d be dinner. Or so her wolf keeps reminding her. Evan proves to be a perceptive leader, a skilled fighter and irresistible to her lonely heart.

To rule the rats, you have to rule the pack. Evan is a whiz at managing people and groups. Until he finds himself leading a mission made up of every single large animal that thrives on rat flesh. And not the kind between his legs. The only bright light is Nicca. Her storm gray eyes miss nothing, her brilliant mind comprehends everything and her succulent curves offer the perfect place for a rat to nestle.

An Impossible Future

In each other’s arms, Nicca and Evan discover love and a new perspective in an off-kilter world. But a wolf cannot mate with a rat, no matter the strength of the human attraction.

Shari Elder Social Media

Hello, I’m Shari. By day, I crawl out of bed, mainline coffee, walk the dog, get my kid off to school, hop on the metro, and save cities within the four walls of my office. Usually by email.

At night, the other Shari emerges. I take off the suit, curl up on the couch and let my imagination play, with words and images until stories take shape (while periodically checking on my teen-ager, hiding out in the bedroom and plotting world domination with her furry minions). As my alter ego, I save cities in a cape and spangled tights, wander space and time on a surfboard, fly over the Himalayas on feathered wings, make six-toed footprints in indigo talc snow on the sixth planet in the Andromeda galaxy or eavesdrop on Olympian gods while pretending to whip up a bowl of ambrosia. In all these wondrous worlds, romance and passion blossom. I can’t resist a happy ending. And I am particularly prone to writing happy endings for those who have given up on ever getting one.
