Is It True: Unexpected by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #GayRomance #ContemporaryPlay Is It True with today’s guest, author of Unexpected (A Unexpected Novel Book One), an MM Contemporary Erotic Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

A chance meeting will change their lives forever…

From the moment he entered the dark taproom, Caleb Hunt found himself drawn to the handsome man who sat alone at the end of the bar, away from the crowd. His interest in the dark-haired, muscled adonis took him by surprise, not remembering when he’d felt such hunger from a simple glimpse. Unable to stay away, he quickly found an open seat next to him and slid into it. When Ronan turned his ice-blue eyes to Caleb and introduced himself, his warm hand sent shivers of desire through his body and he was enthralled.

Ronan Scott’s boring Friday night had taken a turn for the better when Caleb took the seat next to him. Over the next few hours, he found Caleb easy to talk to and at the same time, he found that he couldn’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful man. Caleb captured his attention in a way that no other had for as long as he could remember. Taking a chance, he leaned forward and captured Caleb’s lips with his. And with the simple kiss, Ronan understood that Caleb would become an essential part of his life.

As Ronan and Caleb explore their new relationship and integrate their lives together, they realize that not everything will be so seamless…

Is It True: The Wedding Date by ZrinkaJelic @Firetulip #RLFblog #romance #comedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Zrinka Jelic, author of The Wedding Date, a Romantic Comedy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Nerissa (Neri) Runic, in her late thirties, single and overweight is deemed unmarriageable by her family. So she fabricated a story about dating Mark Warren, a sexy doctor and the gym owner she’s been ogling for months. She thinks none of her lies will come back to haunt her. When her mother RSVP s to the cousin’s wedding invitation on her behalf including a Plus One, Neri has no choice but to attend…or come clean and face her family’s scrutiny.

Frustrated with everyone trying to fix him up on a blind date, Mark Warren lied about dating an elusive redheaded member of his gym who caught his eye months ago. Only, he fully intends to turn this lie into truth. Once he musters enough courage to approach her, that is.

With hardly a month before his cousin’s wedding, he hopes his mother would reply to the invitation, declining his attendance. But getting out of this obligation is out of question. She expects him to reply with ‘happy to attend with a guest’.

When they find out they are forced to attend the same wedding, Mark and Neri must practice their ‘relationship’ in an effort to fool their families into thinking they are a real couple.

But the thin line between pretending and the real deal is easily crossed.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I have five full length novels one novella and couple of short stories and a poem published prior to releasing this book.
this book is part of a series?
No, this is a stand-alone title.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
On occasion
you did research for this book?
True. As with every book I’ve written.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
True, there’s a dog named Tag in the book.
this book has more than one genre?
True, or could be true, it’s a romance and a comedy.
you speak more than one language?
True, my mother’s tongue is Croatian, but I’m from a costal part that has its own dialect which is very similar to Italian, but converted to our grammar. So I can converse in Italian, if you’re not in a hurry.
you grew up where you live now?
No, I grew up in the town of Zadar, in the province of Dalmatia, (yes, where the original Dalmatian dogs were bread, back then called Canis Dalmaticus and the early breeds looked different from what you see today).
you love to read?
Yes, of course. I only heard Danielle Steel say she doesn’t read when she’s working, which is always, for fear she writes something she read in another author’s book into her own.
you are never late?
Not true, or rather used to be true, before I had kids. They really have no concept of time.
you love pizza?
Yes and no, depends on the pizza.
you love sushi?
Vegetarian only, used to like fish, but not anymore.
you have a pet?
Unfortunately, no. Me and half of my and husband’s family are allergic to cats. Dogs are expensive to keep, and so are cats. I hear horror stories from my coworkers who are paying astronomical sums in veterinary bills. I don’t know how they can afford it.

Is It True: Day for Night by Stacey E Bryan @StaceyEBryan #RLFblog #Paranormal #ComedyPlay Is It True with today’s guest Stacey E. Bryan, author of Day for Night, an urban paranormal comedy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Day For Night is a Los Angeles-based urban paranormal comedy. Rife with pop references and scathing commentary on L.A., we follow main protagonist Rae Miller, a 38-40 something wannabe actress who has recently been voted off her reality TV show, as she languishes at a crossroads. She barely has time for self-pity, though, when the unthinkable happens: she witnesses an alien abduction in broad daylight!

Worse, Rae soon discovers that aliens aren’t the only otherworldly beings inhabiting the world, and after escaping a terrifying almost-abduction herself, she succumbs to a sexy Nosferatu’s silky assurances, becoming undead in order to up her alien Ultimate Fighting skills.

While not a strict romance, Day for Night does contain romantic elements. While Rae juggles constant male attention, only one person truly has her heart, although he refuses to have sex with her. I would say the heat level stabilizes at “smoldering” for most of the novel with one brief hot scene which, I although I used the rating PG13, the language that passes between them is definitely R.

Rae is not your usual protagonist since she’s somewhat older and also mixed race, two topics that are significant for anyone living in L.A. and/or trying to survive in The Biz. Some of her life is behind her, and she’s not quite sure how that happened. She’s also resentful that her love-life has stalled, and the dating scene is not only unfulfilling but, she discovers, downright dangerous!

The title Day for Night was taken from Truffaut’s movie title in order to reference the Hollywood environment, although “day for night” comes to mean something very different for Rae after her “Hail Mary” transformation into something…other.

After all, we all have a little bit of Rae inside us: when faced with the incomprehensible, in all likelihood, what would the average person do? Come on, be honest. They’d thank God for Jack Daniels and denial!

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Yes. My first published book. But then, who doesn’t have several other novels stuffed away into drawers and boxes? It’s probably best that those never see the light of day.
this book is part of a series?
Yes. It’s standalone, but I feel like I left enough elements hanging somewhat that a few folks might be thinking, “Lucy, you’ve got a lot of ‘splaining to do!”
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes, I lost some sleep and pulled my hair out and went crazy sometimes.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Small facts throughout like the names of the moons of Jupiter, what the chemical make-up of chlorophyll is, the definition of antimatter. Stuff that’s good for Jeopardy!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. Some characters are definitely not human, and some of them are even yearning to be human.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. It’s an urban paranormal comedy peppered throughout with romantic, mystery, and action-adventure elements.
you speak more than one language?
Yes. I can speak passable Spanish, having studied it from age 9 throughout college. It’s a crime, though, that I’m so rusty at it.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes. Born in San Francisco, grew up in the San Fernando Valley, lived in NYC for a while, then came back home. On a side note, scarily, I left NYC right before 9/11 happened.
you love to read?
Yes. Reading is almost like breathing oxygen. I need it in a way that makes me super-glad that I never started smoking or took up gambling.
you are never late?
No. I’m often late. It seems to happen when I say to myself, “Oh, I’m making good time with this,” and invariably jinx myself.
you love pizza?
Yes. I think pizza’s one of the best things ever invented in the history of Earth.
you love sushi?
No, I do not love sushi, and I never will.
you have a pet?
No. I only have the memory of my beloved black cat, Mr. Smith, who acted like a dog and followed me everywhere.

Stacey E Bryan Social Media

Stacey was a tomboy growing up, fond of gymnastics, climbing trees with Mr. Smith (her cat) and reading. While on vacation with her family when she was 13, a broken toe resulted in an inability to wear high heels when she got older (or at least not for very long), further alienating her from accepted feminine standards. After receiving her English degree at UCLA, she worked at a dude ranch, for a resume writer in Beverly Hills, in the classified ads department of The Reader, and eventually ended up captioning for the hearing impaired. She has written about tortured artists, suicide, and anorexia nervosa, but has found that light, humorous writing is a lot more fun, thus the foray into aliens and vampires in a Los Angeles setting. When she moved to New York, she found her husband in Brooklyn, and they eventually moved back to L.A. where they both write between bingeing episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and True Detective years after everyone else has already seen them.

Is It True: Ariel's Super Power of Love by Liz Adams @lizadamsbooks #RLFblog #romancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Liz Adams, author of Ariel’s Super Power of Love, an erotic superhero adventure. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Fifty Shades of Wonder Woman? Better than that!

Ariel Garrison is nothing like the Wonder Woman character in comic books—no tiara, no bracelets, no magic rope, and no invisible plane—but she does have superhuman strength, a secret she must guard with her life as she spends her graduating year in St. Petersburg, Russia, in a foreign exchange program. Planning to work for the CIA, Ariel has one guiding rule: never fall in love. Doing so could give her enemies leverage and put her lover’s life in jeopardy. When the dangerous liaisons with her host family lead to irresistible temptations, will her superpowers be enough to protect the one she shouldn’t love? Or will she lose her man and her lifelong dream of pursuing justice?

WARNING: In Ariel’s Super Power of Love: The Erotic Wonders of a Super Heroic Woman, Ariel is a vengeful sleuth who pushes her own boundaries redefining what’s right and wrong in every situation, including the bedroom. One reviewer complained that there was too much sex. Ariel’s racy journey of lace and lingerie includes solo F, M/f, F/f, M/f/M/M, and a stage performance that would make Miley Cyrus blush. For 18 years and older.

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

Genre: An Erotic Superhero Adventure

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Nope, but it’s my first ebook that finaled in a contest.
this book is part of a series?
No, it’s a standalone (but she isn’t alone most of the book, much less stand!)
you lost sleep while writing this book?
That’s a personal question! But yes, and those were some of the best hours of lost sleep I ever enjoyed.
you did research for this book?
Tons, yes!
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. She’s superhuman, and would like to be someone’s pet.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. There’s the thrill of the chase after her father’s killer, so it’s more than the erotic romance.
you speak more than one language?
No.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes.
you love to read?
Ironically, no. I got C’s in English for my horrible analysis skills, and honors in English for my creative writing skills. So I spend more time thinking about how to evoke the emotion than reading.
you are never late?
Ugh. Almost never, but when I am I hate myself for it!
you love pizza?
Yes!
you love sushi?
Meh.
you have a pet?
Yes. Though he’s technically a cat, he’s more of a cat-dog-koala. He always greets us at the door like a dog, and hangs on our shoulder like a koala.

Gladiator or warrior posing with shield and sword outdoors ready for battle

Play Is It True with today’s guest Kate Hill, author of Fangs and Fists: Grit, an erotic paranormal. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Werewolf gladiator Grit faced his own mortality in the arena, only to be resurrected by a demon. Grit now lives a shadowy existence as one of the soulless, remembering only bits and pieces of his former life. Nonetheless, he recognizes evil and knows he must fight for the future of his young son, as well as the rest of the world.

Zari, a vampire warrior, helped Grit escape the tower where he had been imprisoned. She had feelings for Grit when they’d first met, but at the time he had been mated to another wolf. Now that he’s on his own, they’re free to explore their feelings as they fight side by side as part of the rebellion against the demons. In the midst of war, their love grows, but danger is everywhere.

Haylen, the demon who resurrected Grit, offers a bargain that may save or destroy the rebellion. Whatever the outcome, Zari and Grit intend to face it together and explore the once forbidden passion between them.

First, tell us about your book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
After the death of her Master, Caitlin Bennett discovers years of abuse and sadistic cruelty at his hands have made her a slave to pain. To reach her peak, Cait needs the type of extreme agony few responsible Doms are willing to dole out, especially Doms like Paul Nelson. Willing to offer the love she craves, Paul’s nearly perfect—except for his aversion to the whip.

Paul refuses to hurt Cait, instead attempting to recondition her through patience and trust. But the longer Cait suffers from lack of sexual release, the more she’s convinced her mind and body are irrevocably programmed. And time to convince her otherwise is running out. Waiting in the wings is a newbie Dom who’s determined to have Cait for his own…who’s learning the whip just for her.

Caitlin will soon have to choose—the man who can give her what she wants? Or the man who can give her what she needs?

Yes. I spent a lot of time researching shibari/kinbaku techniques. Sometimes, though, I’d get a bit lost staring at beautiful, evocative photos of people tied up in rope. Oh well, I’m only human.

No, they’re all human…well, except for Ivan (Caitlin’s sadistic ex-Master). He’s barely human.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes. It falls into the categories of Erotica as well as Contemporary Romance.
you speak more than one language?
Yes. I learnt Italian at school and I remember some of that. And now, I’m learning to speak Thai.
you grew up where you live now?
No. I was born in Australia, but about eight years ago, I moved to Thailand. Let’s just say, extreme culture shock ensued.
you love to read?
YES! I’m a voracious little bookworm.
you are never late?
No. I used to be on time for everything. And now that I have my own family, we are late for every. Single. Thing.
you love pizza?
Yes. If it has meat/chicken, pineapple and chilli on it, I’m happy. You give me something that’s called seafood in the shape of sticks, I’m gonna get cross.
you love sushi?
No. I prefer my food cooked to within an inch of its life.
you have a pet?
Yes, I have fish. I used to have dogs back home, but unfortunately my tiny Thai garden isn’t suitable for puppies. The kind of puppies I like—the ones I used to have—are Rottweilers and Bullmastiffs. They would tear this place up before I could blink!

Sayara St Clair Social Media

Sayara St. Clair is an erotic romance author who writes intense, emotionally charged tales, featuring dominant alpha males sporting either fangs or floggers.

Sayara has a Science Degree, majoring in Microbiology and Biochemistry. Working in both the fields of Serology and Tissue Banking, she got to do lots of cool and sometimes slightly weird stuff. She was employed as the Manager/Buyer for Furniture Retail stores, where she had a chance to unleash her inner Interior Decorator. And for a time, she taught English to students in Asia. Now she’s a writer and has discovered it’s her favorite thing to do. She’s also learned that writing sultry romantic fiction is so much more fun than writing dry old scientific journal articles.

Play Is It True with today’s guest Anne Kane, author of Her Cyborg Lover, a Science Fiction Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Natalie’s loved and lost and she’s not so sure she wants to risk her heart again. She’s willing to settle for a challenging career as a space-pilot instructor and a succession of no-strings attached lovers. But that’s before her boss saddles her with the last thing she wants—a new partner.

Jebediah recognizes his perfect match in Natalie from the moment she seduces him on a dare. Everything that makes her a top-notch pilot, from her fearlessness to her passion, make a night in her bed both challenging and unforgettable.

A dangerous confrontation with a brutal enemy, an exploding drive engine and a traitor close to home throw everything into perspective. Natalie is going to have to put the past behind her and risk it all, because when your partner is also your lover, failure is not an option.

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

Genre: Science Fiction Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?

No! I think it’s about my thirtieth. Of course there were some really short stories mixed in, and a number of anthologies so I could be wrong. Or right. There’s always a chance I’m right!

this book is part of a series?

Yes, this is the first book in the Terras Five series featuring lots of hot alpha male heroes, who just happen to be cyborgs.

you lost sleep while writing this book?

No. On the contrary, I was quite happy to fall blissfully asleep and dream about having my very own cyborg lover.

you did research for this book?

Umm. Sure. I sent out an intergalactic call for information on the development of a rumored cyborg colony with human ancestry. Imagine my surprise when they returned my call! Please don’t tell my children. They already think I’m a little strange.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)

Yes. Definitely! Spike is not human. He is a miniature dragon with the loyalty of a cat. Yup. That means exactly what you think.

this book has more than one genre?

Yes. It has science fiction and romance and cyborgs and futuristic. That’s lots for one book, don’t you think?

you speak more than one language?

No. Nein. Nyente. Non. Het. Nada. Nao. Nem.

you grew up where you live now?

**Snort** Hardly. As a kid I moved a lot, and then I became an adult and acquired the ability to move across entire continents in a single, stressful, insane move. Just FYI, I have no intention of ever moving again. Ever.

you love to read?

Yes.

you are never late?

True. I was once characterized as chronically early. And in case you were wondering, it’s not hereditary. I have two children who prove that on a regular basis.

you love pizza?

Yes.

you love sushi?

Yes.

you have a pet?

No. I have a spoiled little rescue mutt, and a Himalayan cat with a God complex.

Anne Kane Social Media

Anne is a gorgeous supermodel who writes romance in her spare time while jetting around Europe with a string of boy-toys in tow.
Hmmm… no one is going to believe that. How about this?
Anne is an undercover agent for a super secret government agency and when not saving the world for democracy and all the good people, she writes romance one-handed on a special mini computer designed by a mad scientist just for her.
Yeah, that sounds way better. So, ignore the people who tell you she’s just an ordinary person with an extraordinary imagination. They’re just jealous because she gets to play with James Bond and vacation in exotic locations.
Honestly!
When she’s not busy saving the world or writing the next great novel, she likes to kayak, hike, ride motorcycles, swim, skate, practice karate, play her guitar, sing and of course, read.
