Candy J Starr author of Rock You @candyjstarr #RLFblog #NewAdult

Candy J Starr author of Rock You answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Candy J. Starr used to be a band manager until she realised that the band she managed was so lacking in charisma that they actually sucked the charisma out of any room they played. “Screw you,” she said, leaving them to wallow in obscurity – totally forgetting that they owed her big bucks for video equipment hire.
Candy has filmed and interviewed some big names in the rock business, and a lot of small ones. She’s seen the dirty little secrets that go on in the back rooms of band venues. She’s seen the ugly side of rock and the very pretty one.
But, of course, everything she writes is fiction.

What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
I’ve got a recipe of a casserole my mum used to make with macaroni, tomato soup, minced meat, pineapple and cheese all cooked up together. So simple yet delicious.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
I’m pretty adventurous when I dine out and like to try new things but lasagna is always a favorite.
Describe the perfect vacation.
I have no fixed address at the moment and am always travelling so vacations don’t really exist for me. I always think my perfect vacation is a tropic beach holiday but then I remember I hate the sun! Really, anything involving animals would be fantastic.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
I had a ride on tractor that I loved. I think, because my granddad was a farmer and he’d let me ride on the tractor with him, I thought I was pretty cool having a tractor of my own.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I read widely. I love reading romance but I can be super critical in my reading and sometimes it feels more like research than pleasure. I do love historical fiction especially if I’m learning something while enjoying a good story.

About the Book

Title Rock You
Genre New Adult Romance
Author Candy J Starr
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
Working for a cranky, old hermit in an isolated house sounds like Ruby’s idea of heaven – but her boss isn't quite what she expects.
Tex is a fugitive from the rock and roll world – a tragedy abruptly halted his career. No one knows why he quit, no one knows where he is.
The two of them live in the same house, avoiding each other, until Tex screws up, endangering their lives and forcing them to move into close quarters. Suddenly, the idea of human contact seems more appealing, if only with each other. The sanctuary they have built is enough for Ruby -- the man she grows to love is Tex the hermit, not Tex the rock star -- but the outside world encroaches.
She thinks their fledgling love can’t shine brighter than the rock dream but can Ruby bare to let Tex go?

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
I love a great pizza and drag it through the garden please!
Who is your "book boyfriend" (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
There are so many… But my fave would have to be Tack from Kristen Ashley’s Chaos series.
Describe the perfect vacation.
For me the perfect vacation would be a sandy beach, an umbrella for shade, a cold drink, and my kindle full of books. Heaven.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I read almost anything but my faves are romance (any kind) and horror.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

Title Ragan’s Song – Fairfield Corners Book 2
Genre Contemporary Romance with a twist of Paranormal
Author L.A. Remenicky
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
It only took one look into his eyes for her to know she was in trouble.
Adam Bricklin has heard the melody in his head for years, the melody that told him if a decision was right or wrong. When he met Ragan Newlin the song told him she was the one. He was devastated when circumstances tore them apart. It has taken three years for Adam to finally move past the heartbreak he suffered when Ragan left town in the middle of the night. No note, no email, no text. She was just gone. Now he has a new girlfriend, a new album in the works, and his daughter is doing well in school. Until the day Ragan returned to Fairfield Corners.
Ragan came home to celebrate her parent’s anniversary hoping they would forgive her for not telling them about her marriage or her son. When she discovered that Adam was still living in Fairfield Corners she hoped her secrets were safe; secrets that drove her away three years ago, secrets that could change their lives forever.

#RLFblog #Elf Prince Kort Elias, heir apparent to the throne of Chalvaren & #Dragon Commander @pmillhouse

Paula Millhouse shares details about the creation of Elf Prince Kort Elias in the book Chalvaren Rising.

About the Book

Title Chalvaren Rising
Genre Fantasy Romance
Author Paula Millhouse
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
With the love of Kort, Chalvaren’s warrior-prince heir, Mia Ansgar will seize her birthright and become the great dragon-riding wizardess prophesied to free that elven kingdom from her embittered sorceress kin.
Twenty-five years ago, Theo Ansgar abandoned the Kingdom of Chalvaren for a hiding place on another world. Some called him traitor. Some, thief. Now his fully grown daughter Mia must return to the land of her birth…and their war.
It was the elf prince Kort Elias who brought her back. Theirs was an instant connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery, reminding Mia of what she truly is, and what she must become. There is also Magnus, destined to be more potent than any wyrm Chalvaren has ever seen, a three-day-old dragonlet Mia must nurture and then ride. And then there is the Dragonstone, an artifact of power nonpareil. Joined, they can tip the scales of battle against the wraith-possessed forces of darkness, of Mia’s own embittered kin.
Redemption will be offered, the protected will become the protector, and an ancient prophecy will come to fruition, but only righteous love can conquer all.

Introducing Kort Elias

#Elf Prince Kort Elias, heir apparent to the throne of Chalvaren, Dragon Commander of the fighting dragons of Castle Elias

Name: Kort Elias
Age: 27ish (in human years)
Gender: Alpha Male
Birthplace: Castle Elias in the Kingdom of Chalvaren
Profession: Dragon Commander, rightful heir to the Elias Throne
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Elf
Describe his/her body build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars: Kort Elias stands six-foot something, covered with hard muscle. His light skin tone contrasts with colorful tattoos on his shoulders of elven runes heralding his culture’s beliefs in courage, love and strength. His brilliant crystal blue eyes lead up to pointed ears that jut out from his head of long, blonde hair.

Who is the significant other in your character's life?
Mia Ansgar, the love of his life, an elf he brought home to Chalvaren from her hiding place on Earth.

Tell us about this character, please.

How does your hero dress?
Kort wears leather armors, boots, and carries a longbow for dragon training. You’ll find him wearing soft casual trousers and often no shirt for relaxing. And god-forbid, formal royal regalia for his mother’s official castle functions. Yeah, he hates those occasions, but damn he looks good in a suit.
On what special skills does your character rely?
Blessed with magic by his chief deity Varik, Kort uses his royal blue aura to communicate with his dragons. Later he finds using his aura particularly satisfying when he and Mia blend their auras to enhance their love life.
Is he close to family?
Kort’s parents are King Lachlan and Queen Elissabet Elias. He’s the eldest brother of Ian, Quinn, and Brite Elias.
Kort takes his family’s protection and preservation seriously. He not only loves them, he plays with them. Cards with his father in the King’s Library, dragon-wrangling with his younger brothers, and he’s been known to take in secret tea parties with five year old Princess Brite Elias and her imaginary friends.
Does he have children?
Not yet, but he wants to parent with Mia more than anything. Their first charge is the dragonlet Magnus whom they nurture together in Chalvaren Rising – kind of like a new couple takes in a puppy to raise.
Is your character involved in his community?
Kort is tied to his community at Castle Elias in an intimate way. His skills as Dragon Commander, his affinity for teaching dragons and elves to work together to protect their home builds important relationships with everyone in the castle. But, incorporating Mia into castle life proves one of Kort’s biggest challenges. She’s related to Chalvaren’s public enemy number one – Isa Ansgar – a dragon killer.
What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?
The inner doubt Kort won’t be able to stop Isa Ansgar from killing Chalvaren’s dragons and taking over Castle Elias, or that Mia might join Isa’s forces of dark magic.
Not only does Mia control the Dragonstone, an elven artifact of power nonpareil, the only Sprit dragon know to the realm has imprinted on Mia, and if Isa gets her hands on Magnus and Mia, Chalvaren could be doomed.
What is your hero's biggest hopes and dreams?
Kort’s biggest hope, his dearest dream is that Mia will marry him and together they’ll build a future dynasty in Chalvaren. He wants to nurture Magnus (the dragonlet) into his role as dragon ambassador so he can reunite all the dragon of Chalvaren. After all, the castle with the most dragons wins, right?
If your character could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
Kill Isa Ansgar himself.
What is your hero's breaking point?
When he sees Mia sitting at Isa Ansgar’s side – it’s the darkest moment for him in Chalvaren Rising.
How emotionally expressive is your character to others?
He yells. A lot. Training elves to ride dragons demands it, but he’s finding out his headstrong ways don’t work in every relationship. Mia’s set him straight on that point more than once.

Paula: Kort – is it true the dragon Garnet the Red has the power of speech but never talked to you before Mia showed up in Chalvaren? And if so, why?
Kort: Umm, yeah. It’s true. It would have been great to talk to him all those years, Paula and Kayelle, but I think he held silent until Mia showed up because she reminds him of her father, Theo Ansgar. Garnet was Theo’s dragon, see. Honestly, I think the beast was so sad Theo abandoned him he couldn’t find his voice until I brought Mia back to Chalvaren.
Paula: Why are you so hell-bent on stopping Isa Ansgar?
Kort: She kills dragons. She kidnaps and possesses Chalvaren’s elves with black magic and turns them into hideous creatures known as Shadow Elves. Any threat to my family like that, to my people and my dragons, will not be tolerated. If Isa wants her war I’ll be first in line on the battlefield.

About Your Writer

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Thanks for asking, Kayelle. Paula chose to write about me because I’m the only character who could tell this story, well, me and Mia, that is. I showed up for work one day and bothered her until she had no other choice but to tell Readers about Chalvaren Rising.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
I’m not fond of the fact she divulged my fears – of losing Mia, of how embarrassed I was when Magnus couldn’t land, or roar. Of how badly I wanted to be the one to silence Isa Ansgar – but couldn’t do that alone. I’m the king’s son, right - people aren’t supposed to know all that internal conflict garbage about heroes, right?
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about, and why?
Any of the other wizards in Chalvaren, but Lucan Brix fascinates me. My uncle’s command over magic helped me get Magnus back to Chalvaren – and to find Mia. What Lucan went through in Chalvaren Rising was hard as hell.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think she’s this amazing human who’s got the Universal Story inside her soul. She understands the value of entertainment to society. She likes to see the good guys win, and she’s all about the Happily Ever After even if she makes it hard as hell to get there.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your writer?
I’m damn glad you took the time to tell our story, Paula. The fact that you understand how I believe Love Is Worth Fighting For means everything to me. Mia, and Magnus, and hell, the whole Kingdom of Chalvaren are all better off because you wrote our story down, and found our perfect editor. Thank you. The Kingdom’s portal is always open for you and your friends to come and visit. That includes you too, Kayelle, and all your readers.

Gentlemen Cowboys with a Touch of Bad @maryjdressel #RLFblog #cowboys

Cowboy Boss and His Destiny 
Early days of reading romance novels and women's fiction laid the groundwork for Mary J McCoy-Dressel to take up the pen and write her own memorable love stories where love always wins. In her books, whether contemporary, historical, or paranormal, you can expect a twist and turn along the way, maybe a tear, a laugh, a bit of arousal, and even a little suspense. She loves to write stories with strong family ties, lasting friendships, and gentlemen heroes with a touch of bad, with feisty women who know how to handle them.
She lives in the Great Lake Basin area of the USA. Two grown sons and an Australian Shepherd fur-baby dog complete her family. Mary loves communicating with readers and friends. She also has a mailing list for readers who want to be notified of new releases and important book updates. Visit her website for more information. Mary is a member of Romance Writers of America.

Author Mary J. McCoy-Dressel

The Lighter side of romance but still sensual and sexy. Warm your heart and give your nerve endings a tingle at the same time.
Tristan Carlson does the best he can to raise his four-year-old daughter on his own. His mother remains on the Double Dutch to lend a hand—giving him the ability to maintain the ranch, tend to his horses, and keep up his small-time ranching magazine. His attractive, new assistant is everything he wants in a woman, including her ginger-red hair. But from his experience with women lately, he's learned that some don't want a ready-made family. This one seems different, and he's falling hard. But, there's his little blue-eyed girl, and he'll protect Destiny's heart with everything within him. Until he knows for sure...
Living the good life in a big city for many years, Nora Trinity ends up a statistic after the magazine she works for makes cutbacks. Despite a family betrayal from her past that still needs mending, she moves back home to the small town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on her mind. When she is hired by a local rancher to help with his ranching magazine, she finds herself profoundly attracted to him. The thing is, her sexy boss comes as a package deal, and his little girl is immediately drawn to her. It's not just about two hearts taking a chance now—or two people falling in love...

This book can be enjoyed on its own and out of series order. Rancher Jase Carlson doesn’t understand the ache in the hollow of his chest, since his ex-wife ripped his heart out. She doesn’t follow the court rules where his children are concerned, making him even more pissed off. Harboring a bad attitude, he wishes he wasn’t a gentleman when he comes to the aid of a quick-tempered, sexy blonde. He can’t allow her tight jeans and sweet smile to sway him, even after he’s coerced into spending time alone with her. Fighting the torturous battle going on within his own mind and body, he can either deal with it—or succumb to the woman who appears to be everything he didn’t know he needed.
In an attempt to save her rebellious teen sister from herself—as her guardian, Brenna Page leaves everything behind and moves to Canyon Junction, Arizona. When she unexpectedly meets a hot-headed cowboy with intense blue eyes and muscles to die for, the first thing she wants to do is get away. Since she can’t seem to shake him, Brenna wonders if that same grudge-filled cowboy with an attitude is someone worth taking on. But still dealing with painful memories, and a sister who wants nothing to do with Arizona, the last thing she needs right now is a horse ranching cowboy interfering.
One wrong turn. Two broken families. Brought together by chance, and need.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 #sweetromance @MilouKoenings - 18 other authors #RLFBlog

This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.
Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 

About the Author

Milou Koenings writes romance because, like chocolate, stories with happy endings bring joy to the world and so make it a better place.
She's lived all over the world, working as an intellectual property lawyer and freelance travel and technology writer, but loves to stay home with her family more than anything.

Interview with Milou Koenings

Why did you write this book?
Sweet romance and holidays just seem to go together so well! This is a group project by 19 authors from Sweet Romance Reads. We banded together to create a boxed set of holiday novellas.  It was a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit as early as possible. My contribution, Sweet Blizzard, is another installment in my Green Pines Romance series. The story spun itself after I came across my grandmother's holiday spice cookie recipe.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, but as long as a book has a good love story in it, I'll read any genre - from contemporary romance, to historicals or political thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That's a tough one.  Hermione Granger or Lisbeth Salander? Neither of them are romantic heroines!  Sticking to romantic heroines, I'll vote for the little known Jean Paget from A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute. She's strong, tough, kind - and based on the war-time experiences of a group of real-life heroines that included my great-aunt.
What are you working on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming months?
I'm working on another a Green Pines Romance, a prequel to my novel Reclaiming Home, as well on as a brand new series.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 is a boxed set to welcome in the holiday season with 19 heartwarming and wholesome novellas from New York Times, USA Today, national bestselling, and award-winning authors.
Our novellas take you from the Smoky Mountains to Florida's sun-drenched beaches, from the Italian Alps to Paris, France, from the Midwest to a quirky little town in Arizona.
The Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 bundle features all-new, stand-alone stories that are sure to make you laugh, sometimes bring tears to your eyes, but always put you in the Christmas spirit. Foreword by New York Times bestselling author, RaeAnne Thayne.

Passions in the Dust #historical by @FayeHall79 #RLFblog

Passions in the Dust 
This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

Faye Hall's passion driven, mystery filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during the late 1800's.
Each of her novels bring 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 tell 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 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Interview with Faye Hall

Why did you write this book?
Passions in the Dust is set mostly on a cattle station in Bowen, North Queensland and describes the hardships so many settlers went through.  Along with showcasing the hardships, I wrote this book to try and show a romantic side to Australian history that is not so unlike that of England or the Americas.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy both a good romance and a good murder mystery.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
Currently working on ‘Lust & Chastity’ which is my own take on one of the seven deadly sins and heavenly virtues.  But I also two other scripts currently being looked at by publishers.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Ella Matthias thought by coming to Bowen, Australia she would find freedom from the life of servitude she’d been forced into, as well as the lover, Seth Kenner, who had so coldly deserted her.  Never could she have imaged that it was Seth who had sent for her.
Again being drawn into Seth’s life, Ella finds herself surrendering to passion, and experiencing pleasures in the Australian outback that she had only ever dreamed of.
These pleasure come under threat though by those who wish to destroy everything they had worked so hard to achieve.  Together they must fight bush fires, cattle rustlers, poisoned stock and a wife and fiancé who had come to Australia to claim what they believe is rightfully their’s.

Andrea R. Cooper author of Viking Fire @andreaRcooper #RLFblog #historical romance

Andrea R. Cooper author of Viking Fire answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Andrea has always created characters and stories. But it wasn't until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels.
What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids.
She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Tex-Mex. I love the cheese, spiciness, and variety of Tex-Mex food. Nowhere else has food like ours in Texas. (ex. I won’t mention the state, but when queso was ordered, it was a can of cheese soup   :P)
Describe the perfect vacation.
Is there such a thing for a family? LOL. For me, a perfect vacation would be one where the kids have a great time, don’t whine, sleep in, and my husband and I can relax. We’re saving up for a Disney cruise – so maybe in about five years J
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Barbies. Not so much for the wardrobe, house, or cars (though they were cool), but I created stories and characters with them. I had soap operas and family sagas galore.
What are your hobbies?
Besides writing, I love Zumba, dancing, reading, and catching up on my favorite shows: Game of Thrones, Reign, Vikings, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, I Zombi, Lost Girl, etc.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
The same genres I write: fantasy, paranormal, historical romance, romantic suspense. I’m also a member of several book clubs, and they make me read novels I would never choose for myself, but expand my horizons and lead to great discussions.

About the Book

A marriage to the Laird’s daughter would grant him land if he swears fidelity and if his men will fight along with the Liannons against any foe - Irish or Viking. However, the Laird’s feisty daughter only holds animosity for him and his kind. Is marriage worth the battle scars of such a relentless opponent?
With the blame for a rival Laird’s death treacherously set against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping at their heels.
