Lord Grayson's Bride

A Scrolls of Cridhe novella
She can't allow his love for her to destroy him...
When Nicholas Spencer, Earl of Grayson, returns to claim the woman he loves, Lady Josephine Knightly isn't willing to forgive him for abandoning her six years ago. But neither can she resist the man he's become.
Two days after Josephine signs the marriage contract she discovers a nasty secret that will destroy her family. The only way to protect them—to protect the only man she's ever loved—is to disappear...or die.
Nicholas won't make the same mistake twice and let Josephine Knightly go. She loves him. He felt it in their one kiss before he left, and in the single kiss she allowed since his return. But she's doing everything in her power to sabotage the marriage even before it's begun. Nicholas doesn't care. If Hell is where he must live to have her, then she must stand by his side in the fire.
Lord Grayson's Bride is part of The Scrolls of Cridhe: Volume 1, Highland Winds bundle. These are seven brand new Scottish romance novellas by seven best selling authors. The bundle will be available for preorder November 1 and will release November 17 for the introductory price of $2.99.

Caroline refuses to allow her first taste of desire to be at the hands of a man who would rather have any woman but her.

As Aphrodite, Caroline attends a masque determined to find a man to initiate her into the intimacies of erotic love.
Taran Robertson, Viscount of Blackhall, makes no secret that he despises his obligation to marry the Sassenach heiress chosen for him by his father. As a last foray before his wedding, he attends a masque. However, the spirited vixen he meets and seduces has secrets...secrets that just may reveal he's to have an improper wife.

5 Easy Questions: Mel Curtis Author of Breaking the Rules #RLFblog #contemporary

Breaking The Rules  
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick, easy, and fun. Today's guest is Melinda Curtis.

What is your go-to meal to order when you dine out? Your favorite "I know it will hit the spot" item.
Chicken, apple, walnut, gorgonzola salad.
Who is your "book boyfriend"? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.
My latest preoccupation is with Cyrus Jones from The Hot Zone (Jayne Castle). Take some sexy, add some paranormal and I'm in!
What were you like when you were in school?
Will my kids read this? I should probably talk about elementary school. I was a model student, of course.
Would you rather stay inside and watch snow falling, or get out in it and build a snowman?
I'm inside, drinking wine in front of the fire and reading a good book.
What is your favorite quote?
"Don't strive for perfection when good will do." As a writer, you try to write fresh, but sometimes it's okay to type 'he said.'

About the Book

To say Jack and Vivian Gordon's marriage has been rocky would be an understatement. The Gordons have been on a roller coaster of love and lust, but can't seem to get on the same page at the same time. This power couple needs a time-out to find their happily ever after. And life coach to Hollywood's rich and powerful, Cora Rule, has just the solution – have the couple sign their divorce papers in a safe room…and lock them inside.

Excerpt:

Vivian Gordon had a problem.
A six-foot-two-inch hunk of a problem.
Sex with Jack hadn't solved the problem. Marrying him hadn't solved the problem. Leaving him hadn't solved the problem.
The problem was that Viv loved her husband, but Jack didn't love her.
It wasn't as if Jack was incapable of love, as some of Hollywood moguls seemed to be. No, Jack had passion aplenty, but it was for the NBA team he owned, the L.A. Flash, not for a woman. Not for Viv.
Viv watched Jack swim his daily laps with strong, commanding strokes. Heaven forbid Jack didn't get his laps in. If he didn't, he was the biggest shit.
Her Gianvito Rossi black suede lace up heels clicked slowly across the white marble tile as she approached the patio doors in the house they'd once shared. Her cadence was one of a doomed prisoner being shown the open door of the gas chamber.
This is the end.
And she'd chosen the execution date.

5 Easy Questions: Barbara White Daille @BarbaraWDaille #RLFblog #Contemporary

The Sheriff's Son 
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick, easy, and fun. Today's guest is Barbara White Daille.
Would you rather stay inside and watch snow falling, or get out in it and build a snowman?
Stay inside. Preferably on the couch with a good book, snuggled beneath an afghan and/or close to a crackling fire in the fireplace (if I had one). Oh—and with a tray of hot chocolate and cookies by my side.
What was your favorite book as a child?
Wow, is this a tough question. I would have trouble picking a favorite series, let alone a favorite book. Really, there were so many….
But I'll take a stab at what's bringing back fond memories at this very moment—and that would be Harriet the Spy.
I connected with Harriet because, like me, she always knew she was going to be a writer. And I loved getting a peek into her notebook filled with observations about her life and all the quirky characters she ran into.
What were you like when you were in school?
Shy, quiet, introverted, and with my nose usually stuck in a book. Pretty much the way I am now.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Since my hero's a deputy sheriff and I would be channeling my heroine, the ringtone would be an oldie but goodie: I Fought the Law.
Remember that one?
Three-quarters of the lyrics are "I fought the law and the law won." And since you know I write romance, it's probably not giving anything away to say that…eventually…Deputy Sheriff Tanner does win Sarah's heart.
What is your go-to meal to order when you dine out? Your favorite "I know it will hit the spot" item.
No-brainer on this one! My favorite dish is Alaskan King Crab Legs with plenty of hot melted butter.
Because they're on the pricey side, I tie them into a "reward" for hitting an important milestone, which usually means turning in the manuscript for the next book…or the sale of a new book…or the release of the latest book. As The Sheriff's Son had already been out in print and has just been re-released for the first time in e-book format, I figured that entitles me to celebrate this book twice!

About the Book

Title The Sheriff's Son
Genre Contemporary Romance
Author Name Barbara White Daille
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
The Sheriff's Son
Why Is Tanner Jones Back In Town?
Seven-year-old Kevin has been a handful for single mom Sarah Lindstrom, and when the new sheriff walks through her door holding her son by the scruff of his neck for egging his car, she knows she's lost control. But can she control herself—and keep the secret she's kept for so many years?
Tanner Jones has no idea Kevin is his son—he lost the right to that information when he abandoned Sarah soon after graduation. Just because he's back in town doesn't mean he can waltz into her life—and Kevin's—to pick up where they left off. But Sarah can't deny the feelings she still harbors for Tanner, and can't deny how her son is benefiting from his attentions.
When Tanner finds out the truth, what is he going to do?

Cover Love at Romance Lives Forever is a short intro to a book and includes a cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the author. Today's featured book is Wystan (The Heckmasters) by Allison Merritt.
Genre paranormal romance
Pubisher: Samhain Publishing
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Her search for safety lands her in a totally new kind of danger.
Certain that an ad for a job in a small New Mexico Territory town is the answer to her prayers, Nebraska schoolteacher Rhia Duke packs her sister into a rickety wagon and heads west.
Except when they reach the near-deserted town, she learns the truth. There is no job, no future, and no welcome in the bleak blue eyes of the handsome sheriff.
The minute Rhia's runaway team thunders into town, Wystan Heckmaster feels the change in the air. One of three sons of a demon who dared love a human, he keeps watch over a Pit guarded by seven seals, and slays any Hellbound demon that attempts to free the master imprisoned within.
With a gut full of regret and a forgotten town filled with reformed demons, Wystan is certain of one thing: he can't be the man Rhia needs. But when the truth behind Rhia's flight from Nebraska comes to light, Wystan must open his soul—and pray there's enough love between them to overcome the darkness rising from the Pit.
Warning: Contains a take-no-prisoners sheriff, a woman who can't outrun her supernatural secrets, and a dusty town where hope is as thin as dust in the wind. Author recommends keeping a glass of cool spring water at your elbow while reading.

Interview with Dyami Shafer

Tell us about yourself, please.
My name is Dyami Shafer. You say it like Dee-aww-mee. I am Chippewa and the name means Eagle. After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, I became a conservation officer in Michigan. Don't let my considerable physic fool you; I can be rather graceful on the dance floor. I openly admit I have a soft spot for critters and have adopted several rescue animals.
What is it that you want, but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
I want it all! But as a Native American Shifter, I have to take in consideration what my Spirit Animal advises me to do. In a perfect world, I would fall in love with my true mate and she would accept me as I am… feathers and all. LOL However, reality can be cruel so chances in life of finding my mate who will love me are slim.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
I've always been afraid of being rejected. I tower over most people and my yellow eyes have a tendency to turn off the ladies. I didn't date much after being snubbed and rebuffed so often. I'm at a point in my life where I'd like to settle down, raise a family and have a gal who's willing to go dancing on weekends.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
She's tall with long legs that can wrap around me… oh, sorry…. I got carried away. But she is tall. LOL Amanda is the calm to my storm. With a simple word or touch, she can settle my spirit animal. She's the light in my dark. When I'm with her, I feel like I'm home. Best of all, she loves pizza, wine and dancing.
What would that person say about you?
Other than how I eat too much pizza, she'd say I'm so gullible sometimes. She likes to be silly and tease me, but sometimes I take her too seriously. Oh…how she makes me laugh!
What is your family like?
Several men in my family are eagle shifters. Each one of us had to serve in the military at one point of our lives so that makes us a bit of a macho bunch so the women make sure they balance us. I thank my mom every day for making me learn to dance. However, I'm not happy about my grandfather and uncle removing some childhood memories from me, but I understand and respect the reason they did it.
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
I am very happy with the way my story ended. Even though I don't live in a perfect world, I found my spirit mate and we fell in love. She's everything I've ever wanted and more. It didn't take long for lost memories of Amanda to return. I can't believe we are finally together! The best moments are when I partially shift to extend my wings, gather her in my arms and take her flying. Wait… add when we slow dance. Basically, whenever I have my arms around her, I'm in Heaven.

About the Writer

Why did you choose to write about this character?
I spent summers at our family cottage. A local Chippewa rented the place next to ours. "Indian Dave" would share stories and dances with us. His tales inspired my Native American shifters. Dyami could have been one the eagles that fished at the mouth of the river coming into the lake.
Was there anything you discovered about this character that was a surprise to you? Dyami developed a sense of humor. Amanda's teasing really lightened his mood. His spirit animal recognized it right away.
Why do you write?
I have so many stories to tell.
What do you want to write next?
I'm actually working on the third book in the Legend of the Spirit series. A Native American hawk shifter is in the Marines and his spirit animal claims his beautiful superior officer as his mate, but he won't break his code of honor.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Eagle Dance is book 2 in the Legend of the Spirit series. Each book features a Native American shifter. After I complete the Hawk shifter story, I have the outlines for Falcon, Wolf and Dragon tales.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
Thank you for reading my stories. I'd love to hear from you!
