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.

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.

It Takes a Cat Burglar by Cailin Briste @CailinBriste #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceToday’s featured book is It Takes a Cat Burglar: A Thief in Love Suspense Romance, a sci-fi suspense romance by Cailin Briste.

Sebastian St. Croix is a wealthy businessman with a specialized hobby. He steals things. As in entering without permission and purloining expensive artifacts and art objects. This could be his flaw, a penchant for taking what doesn’t belong to him, but it isn’t. He’s a thief in a white hat. The items he takes have all been previously stolen from public museums and are in private collections. He returns these priceless works of art once he appropriates them.

Like most romance heroes, Sebastian is handsome. When Darcelle sees him for the first time after a year of interacting through notes this is what she thinks. “He was gorgeous. Only a master sculptor could have formed a face of such perfect symmetry. The masculinity of his high cheekbones, angled jaw, and straight brows was softened by his exquisite lips. From beneath black locks slanting over his forehead, pale green eyes stared at her.”

On the surface it doesn’t look as though Sebastian has any flaws.

Rich? Check.

Good looking? Check.

Uses his skills for good? Check.

But a romance book isn’t as fun to read if the hero doesn’t have at least one flaw he must struggle with or overcome to find his happily ever after. The aspect of Sebastian’s personality that makes him an exceptional cat burglar also makes his love life one of physical release with no long-term connections. He must be in control. And then Darcelle Lebeau enters his life. She exposes that flaw, so that even Sebastian recognizes he must change or lose her.

It Takes a Cat Burglar is a novella, so the length limits creating a hero with multi-layered flaws. The best full-length romances are a spider web of the hero and heroine’s flaws, intractable situations, and devious villains. I personally love a hero who struggles to relinquish control. When he lets go, the result is so satisfying.

Which flaws are your favorites? Are there some flaws that would make a hero unacceptable? What about dark heroes? The darker the hero, the more flaws he has, but getting a bad boy to fall in love is a huge favorite among romance readers. So, what part of the bad boy persona is flawed and what shouldn’t change? Let me know what you think.

It Takes a Cat Burglar: A Thief in Love

When Darcelle Lebeau throws off the invisible chains that keep her bound to her family, she discovers a new vocation. Tempted to enter the illegal playground of a man she nicknames Matou, she becomes a cat burglar in training. Deeply ensnared with each task he entices her to fulfill, she fails to discover his identity and true intentions.

Sebastian St. Croix, a wealthy businessman, has a dark side. He’s a thief, a cat burglar who steals art and historical objects. For one year, he trains Darcelle to become his assistant, remaining incognito, observing her from afar. His admiration grows along with his desire for her with every phase-one challenge she completes. Phase two will test the limits of his control. Hands-on personal training? Yes. Sex? No. With his sister’s happiness at stake, nothing, not even the tempting Darcelle Lebeau, can interfere with accomplishing the biggest break-in of his career.

Blame it on the Moon by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalLove…when you least expect it.

D.C. native, Livia Quinn, lives and writes by the bayou in Louisiana. She’s written eleven books in her Storm Lake series, both paranormal and military romance. While working as a plant manager, computer trainer, mail lady, professional singer, and small business owner she stocked her brain full of great characters and fodder for her stories and is eager to share them with her readers.

Blame it on the Moon

It’s the height of the Para-moon and Sheriff Jack Lang is up to his ‘6’ in alligators. Defending those weaker than himself is in his DNA which is what drove him to become a Navy pilot. Now, who is he kidding? Alligators he could handle! But supernatural bad guys?

Ragtag doesn’t begin to describe his band of temporary ‘heroes’. If he has to go to war with the group that showed up at dawn, he might as well start cutting up white sheets and attaching them to garden stakes.

With Tempe and the other Paramortals ill or incapacitated and the sudden appearance of beings he’s never heard of, will Jack be able to keep Destiny out of the hands of their enemies for the rest of the power down and—very important—keep the humans in the dark? It’s only twenty-four hours. If worse comes to worse, he has a dragon on his side and a few surprises up his sleeve. “Yippe, ki, yi…”

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours and things don’t always go as planned.

Take These Broken Wings

Blame it on the Moon by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalStrap in ’cause it’s a wild ride through Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…

Five months ago, Sheriff Jack Lang would have sworn there was no such thing as vampires, tempestaeries, djinn or dragons. That was before he met Tempest Pomeroy, his sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. He’d fallen for her before he found out about her “special abilities”. But that wasn’t what turned his life upside down. No, to say Jack’s world had gone FUBAR was like saying Wolverine’s fingernails were long enough for a manicure.

Tempe had been afraid her supernatural nature would be a problem for Jack, who’d mistaken Destiny for a “Mayberry-like” small town, but that didn’t explain why he’d left her in favor of haunting the highest levees in the parish. Sure, he’d received a shock, but what was it going to take to get him to return to his life and to her? A stubborn man is one thing; a grumpy, depressed twenty-ton dragon was a bit more of a challenge.

Today we’re reading about NarrAy Jorlan from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen. Tell us about your book.

He’s a professional thief. She’s a by-the-book army captain. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device.
Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

Stressing NarrAy Jorlan

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

Age: 28

Birthplace: Tarthian Empire

Profession: Captain in the All People’s Liberation Army (a rebel)

Ethnicity: Better (an addictive, enhanced human)

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a party. Considering her story, describe the party.

NarrAy’s story starts out with her wearing a hot red party dress so she can fit in at a night club. She’s there undercover to meet and hire a professional thief. The place is crowded to the max.

How does the heroine feel about being this particular party, and what body language is she displaying that gives it away?

She is not happy about being there and stands above the crowd on a hotel balcony, her arms crossed while she taps one foot.

Is she more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

NarrAy is not shy, but because her kind is addictive, they are forbidden access in society. She stays away from crowds.

If she drinks, what is her drink of choice at this party?

She’s too aware of her pheromones and how they affect others to risk getting drunk. She drinks something that looks alcoholic but isn’t.

How much drink is her usual?

She sometimes has a glass of wine with dinner. That’s it.

The heroine figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

She’s avoiding anyone and everyone. Not only is her kind forbidden to mingle with others, they are not allowed to touch anyone either.

Is she likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend that others latch onto?

Others go stand beside her. She is the strong, silent type.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the heroine going to handle it?

Physically, she is tiny. However, all she has to do is release her pheromones and anyone in the vicinity will go glassy-eyed and slack-jawed. She’s not afraid of anyone no matter how big they are. Literally, no one can touch her if she doesn’t want them to.

Is the heroine the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

She would do the tossing.

Will she know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of herself?

She’s often the first to leave, unless she’s meeting someone on a covert mission or op.

Stressing NarrAy from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure #RLFblog #scifi #romance

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was blameless in a situation?

She’s meek and demure and does not argue. However, she will not allow herself to be detained unjustly. It’s not something she’s proud of, but she can overpower with her pheromones and use her voice to control others. If she’s angry, the combination can kill.

How does the heroine react to hearing a scream?

She seeks backup if possible, but if she can’t, she will still investigate.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses her mind?

Protect the person. Then punish the assailant.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?

Take a second to assess the situation. She does not leap blindly into anything, but she’s quick to decide and once she has, she doesn’t pull back.

This heroine attempts to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does she do?

NarrAy will use her pheromones and voice to take command of the situation. She avoids that if possible.

The heroine runs into the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does she do?

She gets stiff and formal, retreats behind a wall of polite iciness and waits for the person to leave. If it looks like they aren’t, she makes excuses for leaving and gets out of there.

Someone younger than the heroine is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the heroine deal with it?

She comes alongside, talks to them, and if she outranks them (she’s a captain, after all) she will direct them as to how to fix the situation and proceed.

The heroine is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself in order to get through the situation?

Pain is fleeting. Honor is forever.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“Think, assess, and then act without regret.”

What lesson from her past gets her through a stressful situation?

When her parents were killed and their belongings confiscated by the Tarthian Empress, she considered it the worst day of her life. From the moment she heard what had happened, she knew she had to take back what was stolen and honor her parents’ legacy. She reminded herself daily, sometimes hourly, that she would make them proud.

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.

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?
