Candi is the co-host of the wildly popular radio show Candi and Company with over 900 thousand listeners began her venture in the paranormal at the tender age of two, when she witnessed her first apparition. From that moment on the paranormal seemed to follow her. No matter where she moved, the house she lived in the house next door, or the house down the street always seemed to be haunted.

She often wondered if she drew the spirits to her. Little did she know that she was indeed a magnet of sorts. It wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she found people who could not only explain her gifts, but would also help her hone them. Armed with this new knowledge she began to openly explore hauntings and other paranormal phenomena.

Growing up in Indiana lent her the opportunity to explore many famous haunted places including the Hannah House, which was once part of the Underground Railroad. A little over two years ago she moved to Tulsa, OK and has began to explore the haunted landscape in a new state.

Candi lives with her husband, and furry children in Tulsa. She is passionate about the occult, saving and rehabilitating horses, horseback riding, magic, all things mystical and has her Reiki Mastery.

She uses her own paranormal experiences as well as her own life traumas to write from a grounded and realistic perspective about subjects that are hard to talk about and even harder to feel for yourself.

Meet Ashley Drayton from My Rodeo Man by Bonnie Phelps @bonniephelps15 #RLFblog #contemporary Welcome Ashley Drayton from My Rodeo Man :The Texas Kincaids #1, a Contemporary Romance by Bonnie Phelps.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Zach Kincaid was definitely not what Ashley Drayton was looking for – one more risk-taking, bad boy to add to that long list of narcissistic, jerks who kept breaking her heart. Well, she was fed up. From here on out, bad boys need not apply. So how in the world had this cocky, confident cowboy charmed his way into her affections? She sure wasn’t going to succumb without a fight.

Ashley Drayton looked like the typical, spoiled Southern Belle that made Zach turn tail and head for the hills. As a champion team roper on the rodeo circuit and ranch owner, he sure didn’t need the complications a feisty, prima donna would bring to his life. When he finally did settle down, he wanted a woman strong enough to stand beside him in the hard-knock world of ranching and rodeoing.

Can a rough and rugged cowboy live happily ever after with a sassy and sophisticated socialite?

Introducing Ashley Drayton

Age: 28
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Charleston, South Carolina
Profession: Accountant
Ethnicity: White
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): N/A

Please provide a physical description of yourself. Ashely finger-combed her wild, curly locks that tumbled past her shoulders. “Physically? Big violet eyes, long black hair, curvy in all the right places – men look, so I assume I’m attractive. I’ve been compared to a Betty Boop doll. I’m short, but I prefer height challenged. When I run, people call me girly, which I interpret as they don’t peg me as athletic. I have a keen fashion sense and fantastic dresser.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Single. Been engaged twice, but the last one is the one that opened my eyes. I thought Bill was ‘the one’ and shared my life with him completely. Even put him on the deed to my condo. Big mistake. The man took lying, cheating, scumbag to a whole new level. People say I’m too trusting. Given my history with men, that’s probably an accurate statement. I’m ready for a new start which is why I just moved to San Antonio, Texas to join my best friend, Lauren. I have a plan. No more being sucked in by the wrong man. The perfect day is one spent at the spa being pampered. I love to cook and whip up something fabulous in the kitchen. Maybe I should have been a chef instead of an accountant? But accountant was the safe choice and the one my parents approved. I have a thing for shoes, especially tall, spikey, kick-ass shoes.

Who is the significant other in your life?

I’m not sure he should be – I keep falling into that bad boy trap – but Zach Kincaid has tied up my heart as effectively as the steers he ropes on the rodeo circuit.

If we could only hear your voice (but not see you) what characteristic would identify you?

Bubbly, like fine champagne. That’s one of the things I wish I could change. People assume I’m an airhead and don’t see the strong, capable woman I really am.

What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?

I don’t travel light. In addition to the usual – wallet, phone, makeup and other touch-up essentials, tissues, and feminine products – a woman needs to be prepared for any contingency. Breath mints, hand wipes, an energy bar, pepper spray, hand cream, sun screen, a scarf, a collapsible umbrella, sun glasses, a first aid kit, and ear buds because you never know when you need to tune everything out.

What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?

That I will never find my soul mate. It’s not that I need a man to complete me, but I want someone to love me. I want someone to grow old with, to be there in good times and bad. I’m sure my luck has got to change one of these days, but that’s what scares me the most.

Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?

My mother in particular, and my family in general. It would be nice if she could cut me some slack instead of constantly criticizing me and my choices. I’ve never been good enough for her. I think that’s why I spent so much time with Lauren’s family growing up. They always accepted me for who I am, loved me unconditionally, and made me feel special. No matter what mischief Lauren and I got in to, I always felt like I belonged. My family is the exact opposite. Cold, critical, unloving. I’ve come to the conclusion after so many years of trying to please them, that I deserve more.

What would you like people who hear your story to know?

Ladies, let me be your cautionary tale. Go ahead and love with all your heart, but hang on to your independence.

Rumor has it that Bonnie began telling stories at a very early age. Photos exist of the author toddling around the corner of the house covered in mud babbling about magic rabbits leading her through the garden. Her parents were amused only adding fuel to the fire of her passion for writing. From then on, her active imagination continued to churn out plots and character sketches always wondering how different people would behave in similar situations. When she is not mucking around in her own characters’ lives, you will find her perusing her Kindle and reading someone else’s story. She also enjoys baking, knitting, taking long walks, and people watching. Bonnie lives in Northern California with her husband.

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.

Stifled (Summoned Series #2) by Rainy Kaye @rainyofthedark #RLFblog #PNRStifled, book two of the Summoned Series by Rainy Kaye, is a dark twist on genie folklore. The series follows an unwilling criminal as he unravels the paranormal bond controlling his life.

In Axiom (a prequel novella) Fifteen year old Dimitri’s life changes when his father is murdered, causing him to inherit a family curse. Now he’s left at the mercy of rules he doesn’t understand and the sinister side of people he thought he knew. Forced to commit crimes that increase in severity, Dimitri struggles to find his place in a world where he doesn’t exist.

In Summoned (book one), twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told – literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker. Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well.

When he meets Syd – assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd – he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming – the wish that will destroy him.

Stifled, Book Two

In Stifled, Dimitri would like nothing more than to live a low-key life in Naples, Italy. His girlfriend, Syd, has other plans. After three months of researching, she is positive she has found a jinn on a killing spree in San Diego, California. Since Syd gave Dimitri the one thing he thought was out of reach, he feels obligated to use his ill-gained talents for her cause.

A few hours back in the US proves that Dimitri and Syd didn’t quite make the clean escape they had thought. As they trail the elusive jinn, someone else trails them. What should have been a simple trip to confirm once and for all if the jinn are living among humans, instead reveals a community keeping dark secrets.

Unfortunately for Dim, the only way out is in.

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.

Broken Things by Jessica Cale @JessicaCale #RLFblog #Historical #RomanceToday’s featured book is Broken Things, a historical romance by Jessica Cale.

Rival. Sister. Barmaid. Whore.

Meg Henshawe has been a lot of things in her life, and few of them good. As proprietress of The Rose and Crown in Restoration Southwark, she has squandered her life catering to the comfort of workmen and thieves. Famous for her beauty as much as her reputation for rage, Meg has been coveted, abused, and discarded more than once. She is resigned to fighting alone until a passing boxer offers a helping hand.

Jake Cohen needs a job. When an injury forces him out of the ring for good, all he’s left with is a pair of smashed hands and a bad leg. Keeping the peace at The Rose is easy, especially with a boss as beautiful—and wickedly funny—as Meg Henshawe. In her way, she’s as much of an outcast as Jake, and she offers him three things he thought he’d never see again: a home, family, and love.

After Meg’s estranged cousin turns up and seizes the inn, Meg and Jake must work together to protect their jobs and keep The Rose running. The future is uncertain at best, and their pasts won’t stay buried. Faced with one setback after another, they must decide if what they have is worth the fight to keep it. Can broken things ever really be fixed?
