Genre Historical erotic romance
Author Regina Kammer
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A night of passion at Victorian England's most notorious masquerade finds Arthur Harwell in the arms of Lavinia. A wealthy viscountess with strong political ties, she's the perfect match for the future marquess. But tragedy has left her unable to provide Arthur with the one thing he needs: an heir. Must Arthur abandon true love to satisfy aristocratic obligations?
Lavinia, the Viscountess Foxley-Graham, lost her heart twenty years ago to a man not her husband—with disastrous results. Now widowed and wealthy, she has her pick of lovers, including the far too appealing—and thoroughly unobtainable—Lord Petersham. Can she fight her demons and allow herself to love again?
A tragedy twenty years ago incited Arthur, the Earl of Petersham, to vow never again to fall in love. Yet a passionate encounter with a stranger at a masquerade inflames his hopes, and he is determined to find her. When he discovers the stranger is Lavinia, a woman for whom he already carries a torch, he is certain his future is settled. But can he reconcile familial duty with his love for a woman unable to fulfill aristocratic obligations?

Just My Type a new #vampire #romance by @AllieRitch #RLFblog

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

About the Author

Allie Ritch is a multi­published author of sizzling sci­fi and paranormal romance. She has an active imagination and enjoys entertaining others through storytelling. Allie lives in her own little world in the Southeastern United States, where she spends time appreciating the ocean and sunshine.

Interview with Allie Ritch

Why did you write this book?
Just My Type is the second book in my Vampire Territory series. After writing the first book, Drinking Partners, I knew I had other characters demanding to have their stories told, and Eryx pushed his way to the forefront for book two.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love paranormal romance and sci-fi romance equally, which is why I write in those genres too.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Do I have to pick just one? Because I've got a lot of favorites. Right on the spot, though, I'd have to say Nix from Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. Or Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb's In Death series. Or Rhage from J.R. Ward's Blackdagger Brotherhood series. Or… Yeah, it's hard to pick just one.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I'm working on the rest of the Vampire Territory series, so keep an eye on my blog and/or Twitter feed for announcements about the next release. I can tell you that book three features Jaide, the only female warrior among Alex's guards.
Please tell us about your latest book.
There's trouble in vampire territory, and Melody is right in the middle of it. A new arrival from Eastern Europe named Taspar Tong is out to take over her masters' domains using the army he has at his command. Mel is a personal assistant, not a soldier, and big male vampires scare her.
That includes Eryx, the dark-haired warrior who is always watching her and baiting her with his remarks. If only he didn't look so sexy. Mel figures Wess Gage--their human captive--is a far safer love interest, although Wess is part of the Human Rebellion bent on exterminating all vampires. Can he really see past his prejudice, or will he turn on her?
There are two dangerous men in Mel's life. She just has to decide which of them is her type--the one who makes her feel human again, or the vampire who makes her blood boil?

Dreamtime Sensuality @seagerru #RLFblog #romance


Cover Love includes a cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the author. Today's featured book is your book title by your author name.

About the Book

Title: Dreamtime Sensuality
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: David Russell
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Many a dream can be realised with a little forethought. The characters in this quartet of stories are intelligent, sensitive and literary. They are also supremely voyeuristic and open-minded. Their intelligence is counterbalanced by inhibitions, which they can only lose by premeditated seduction scenarios, which relate intimately to their professional, creative and cultural lives. The great effort each couple puts into arranging a scenario seems to enhance the quality of the experience. A great source of inspiration for this and other works has been the novel The Girl Beneath the Lion by André Pieyre de Mandiargues.

Kim Headlee Morning's Journey @KimHeadlee #RLFblog #historical


Kim Headlee author of Morning's Journey answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-twentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while yet.
Kim is a Seattle native and a direct descendent of twentieth-century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim's novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband's ancestor, the seventh-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.
For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon's Dove Chronicles, and other novels under her imprint, Pendragon Cove Press.
What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Steak and peppers, a recipe I learned from my late mother-in-law, which I can now make just about with my eyes closed.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Sushi, especially on half-price days at our local Japanese restaurant.
Describe the perfect vacation.
A hotel on the beach—any beach—in the off season, when it's not so murderously hot or crowded, where I don't have to cook =or=clean! The longer the stay, the better.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
It's a white teddy bear that I carried everywhere from the moment I could pick it up. I left it underneath the tree in our yard when we moved—I was all of a year old when that happened. Several weeks later, the neighbors found it and mailed it to us. Teddy now sits in a place of honor on the shelf above my bedroom's fireplace; no more nights out in the cold & rain for him!
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
"Russian Easter Overture" by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, the really heroic-sounding part in the middle. It always reminds me of Arthur galloping to the rescue!

About the Book

Title Morning's Journey
Genre Historical Fantasy Spiritual Romance
Author Kim Headlee
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
In a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders, the Caledonian warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity between their disparate peoples in order to create an impenetrable front to protect Caledonia and Brydein from the land-lusting Saxons and Angli raiders.
But their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur's rival and the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise for Arthur's love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his hatred of Arthur and Gyan, and his threat to their infant son.
Morning's Journey, sequel to the critically acclaimed Dawnflight, propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are exacerbated by the characters' own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

Heath, Earl of Ravensdale Wagers Gone Awry @Collette_Author #RLFblog #regency

Wagers Gone Awry 

Interview with Heath, Early of Ravensdale

Tell us about yourself, please.
Heath gives a brief bow. “Thank you for your kind invitation to visit with you. That’s a lovely blue gown you’re wearing. It reminds me of Brooke’s eyes.”
He settles into an armchair. “Always a bit awkward, talking about oneself, especially when one has been born into a life of privilege, but cannot boast ancestors one is proud of. I don’t suppose you’d be happy with I loathe kidney pie and flowers make me sneeze?”
“Hmph, I thought not.” He crosses his legs and drums his fingers on the chair’s arm.
“I’m the eighth Earl of Ravensdale and have had to leave the comforts of London to travel to a remote dairy farm I won in a wager. Well, at least I thought I won the blasted thing, but it seems I only won a portion of the place.”
He leans forward a bit. “Have you any idea how smelly a dairy is? And the flies...hoards of the pesky things.” He flicks his hand toward the window. “And this farm is run by a troupe of sassy women. Beautiful women, I might add.”
Authors call what you want but cannot have "the conflict" -- what is yours?
Heath chuckles. “Ah, that’s an age-old question. What do I want? To sell this farm, but if I do, I’ll render the Culpepper misses homeless. Makes me rather a cur, doesn’t it?”
His gaze drops to his lap.
“No, what I really want is Brooke Culpepper, but she cannot abide me, and I doubt an offer of marriage would tempt her. Besides, the Ravensdales, up to now, haven’t exactly exemplified fidelity or marital bliss, so I plan on enjoying a few more years of freedom before buckling under the responsibilities of the earldom and acquiring a wife and producing an heir.”
What can you not do (but need to do) during this story?
“As I mentioned before, I need to sell this parcel of green hell so that I can return to London’s civilization.” Heath shakes his head then winces. “And, after Brooke’s over- zealous servant took it upon himself to crack me on my head, I’m under doctor’s orders not to travel until I’ve recovered fully.”
He shifts in his chair while shooting a look to the parted door.  
“Trust me, having Brooke under the same roof is causing me much more discomfort than my aching head is.”  
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
Heath gazes into space for a long moment. A small smile quirks his mouth before he shrugs.
 “I can barely read, and it’s a secret I’ve kept close to my chest since my youth. I trust you’ll not bandy it about indiscreetly. I also have a terrible sweet tooth.”
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most and why.
“I fear I’ve lost Brooke because of the wager between us.” He glances up. “She lost, you know, and she should have won. Would have won if outside forces hadn’t interfered.”
“I’m also afraid I’m stuck with this farm, and I detest country life.” Heath makes a small gesture with his hand. “It’s a childhood thing, the story much too long and boring to tell.”
What special skills do you rely on?
       “Not reading!” Heath chuckles again and taps his temple with his forefinger. “I have quite a memory for numbers, though, and can recall every card dealt in a game.”
Why are you happy (or not happy) with the way your story ended?
Heath grins. “Oh, I’m happy with the ending, even if my author manipulated me. Authors seem to enjoy doing that, pushing us characters around and torturing us a bit.”
His grin slips. “I did end up keeping the confounded dairy farm, and obtained guardianship of the younger Culpeppers. I’m going to have my hands full with that lot. Speaking of which, I need to discover what mischief they’ve gotten themselves into in my absence.”
Heath stands and bows. “I thank you for having me as your guest. I’d be honored to return anytime.”

About the Writer

Bestselling, award-winning author, Collette Cameron, has a BS in Liberal Studies and a Master's in Teaching. Author of the Castle Brides Series. Highland Heather Romancing a Scot Series, and Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper Series, Collette writes Regency and Scottish historicals and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and five mini-dachshunds. Mother to three and a self-proclaimed Cadbury Chocolate chocoholic, Collette loves a good joke, inspirational quotes, flowers, trivia, and all things shabby chic and cobalt blue. You'll always find dogs, birds, quirky—sometimes naughty—humor, and a dash of inspiration in her novels.
Her motto for life? You can’t have too much chocolate, too many hugs, or too many flowers or books. She’s thinking about adding shoes to that list.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
I wanted Heath to almost be an anti-hero; you know, a guy who’s not perfect, with some real faults but still comes through as likeable in the end. Creating a character who readers could like despite his obvious flaws, one readers could still find good qualities in, stretched me.
The very nature of what Heath decides to do to solve his situation and Brooke’s dilemma was enough to have many readers slamming the book closed or tossing it across the room. Yet, guys like Heath do exist, and they aren’t all rotten-to-the-core, if you’ll excuse the cliché. 
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Wagers Gone Awry is the first book in a five-book series. You’ll see Heath and Brooke again as the adventures of the other Culpepper misses are told. And trust me, some of their capers are going to be a lot of fun.
What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven't tried yet?
I have some story ideas for contemporaries, a young adult series (I hope to start that one in the summer of 2015), a couple of paranormal series, and even a time-travel series.
There just aren’t enough hours in the day to write all the stories I have floating around in my head. I have to jot them down in my story Bible to keep track of all of them.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I hate mushrooms and peas.
Oh, you want something with a little more substance? 
I didn’t always want to be an author. I fact, I didn’t start writing until 2011. That book, Highlander’s Hope, was published in 2013.
Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
Well, they might enjoy a good chuckle or two if they get my sense of humor. Not everyone does, though.
I love history and what I write, and I hope those passions comes through in my stories.

False Start a new #contemporary @Mariannericeaut #RLFblog #Romance



Marianne Rice writes contemporary romances set in small New England towns. Her heroes are big and strong, yet value family and humor, while her heroines her smart, sexy, sometimes a little bit sassy, and are often battling a strong internal conflict. Together, they deal with real life issues and always find everlasting love. When she's not writing, Marianne spends her time buying shoes, eating chocolate, chauffeuring her herd of children to their varying sporting events, and when there's time, relaxing with fancy drinks and a great read. She tries to make time for her husband too, but he often places behind her love affair with books

Interview with Marianne Rice

Why did you write this book?
I’ve always loved football. I grew up in Los Angeles, but my grandmother was from Denver and had a major crush on John Elway. When I was young I kept a spiral bound notebook (before the time of computers) with the players’ names, positions and stats. At the time I was too young to appreciate the, uh, uniforms, but learned the rules of the game. Fast forward a few decades...I’m now settled in Maine, so my eyes are glued to Brady and Gronk’s...I mean, I follow the Pats. My husband played football in college and I enjoyed watching his backside as well (still has a great tush!). So of course my first book had to feature a football player. I’d love to hear from all of you. What’s your favorite sport to read/fantasize about?
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love contemporary romance. I read historical, suspense and women’s fiction, but there’s something about reading a romance story that really could happen...a girl can dream, right?
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
What an impossible question to answer. I love alpha men (I mentioned my football player husband, yes?), but love the soft, sensitive side of a man as well. A shirtless man with incredible pecs holding a baby? Wowzahs!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
False Hope (book 2) comes out April 20th and False Impressions (book 3) comes out June 29th. But as far as writing goes, I just typed The End to Flight Risk, the first book in my Rocky Harbor series. I’m so excited to write start on the next in the series.
Please tell us about your latest book.
After a drunken, abusive experience with a jock in high school, Meg Fulton ended up a single mother with a tough hide. Now, a brand-new high school principal, she uses her sharp tongue to keep men at a safe distance, until Connor McKay walks into the picture. She can't stand him. He's a sports-loving alpha male--no thanks! But her path continues to cross Connor's, and as attraction heats to a boiling point, Meg learns there's more to him than biceps and a tight rear end.
Ex-NFL player turned high school football coach, Connor McKay is well loved by all--except the intelligent, sexy, new principal who wants to change his athletic program. When they're set up on a blind date, he's finally able to crack Meg's wall.
Things are heating up between them when someone from her past threatens to tear them apart. It will take a leap of faith for Meg to shed the scars of her past and let love into her life.

Ashleigh Jessup from Leading Man by @elle_rush #RLFblog #romance


Interview with Ashleigh Jessup

Tell us about yourself, please.
Hi, my name is Ashleigh Jessup. I own and run Jessup Dance Studio in Los Angeles, California. Have a seat but watch out for the crutches.
*cell phone beeps*
Please excuse me a minute.
*reads text*
Nick – my boyfriend Nick Thurston – wants me to tell you that the crutches are not his fault and no toes were broken in the making of this romance. You'll understand why he wants to clear that up when you read the book Elle wrote about us. Actually, my twisted knee is what happens when a dance instructor gets between two five-year-old ballerinas who are trying to prove who would be the better Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Authors call what you want but cannot have "the conflict" -- what is yours?
I want to expand my dance studio. I've worked my ass off for my success and now that it's paying off I need to keep up the momentum. Unfortunately success comes with roadblocks and they pretty much have me at a stand-still at the moment. I also want Nick. Frankly, getting the dance studio will be easier because that boy's middle name is Trouble. Adding Nick to my life actually pushes my dream studio farther away because lives like ours aren't meant to intertwine but I'm not willing to compromise.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Nick? Nick is awesome. He's a second generation Hollywood actor – on both sides of the family - so you know he's got the looks. Unfortunately he also has the attitude. That's something we're both working on. He's funny and generous and incredibly talented whether he's on the stage or in front of a camera. He's starred as Ares, the god of war, for all three years of Olympus and he is about to start shooting their fourth season. Nick is almost perfect… I only wish the boy could dance.
What would that person say about you?
He'd say I'm sexy and intelligent and witty and that I'm the best dance instructor on the planet. I know because we've practiced this question for the press.
What is your family like?
I'm an only child. I think I've spent a total of an hour with my parents since I turned eighteen. Next question.
Why are you happy (or not happy) with the way your story ended?
I'm happy with it. The very end was good but the part just before that sucked big-time because… I don't want to talk about it. You'll have to read the story. Let's just say you don't need drama in your life but anything worth having is worth the effort you put into it. Nick and I did a lot of work on our own issues and on building something together. Now I think we have a real shot at something good in the future and we are definitely on the right path to get there.

About the Writer

Elle Rush is a romance author from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. When she's not travelling, she's hard at work writing her contemporary romances which are set all over the world. Elle has studied several languages and has flunked poetry in every single one of them. She also has mild addictions to tea, cookbooks and the sci-fi channel.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
I'm very close to my family, and I knew Ashleigh was estranged from hers. When I introduced her parents into the book, her reaction surprised me.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Leading Man is the third book in the Hollywood to Olympus series. I hope to have at least one more novel later this year.
What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven't tried yet?
I'd love to try to write a paranormal romance – particularly a shifter book – because I read a ton of them.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
Every character I write has one of my personality traits. In this book, it's Nick's inability to dance. I can't dance. At all. Not even a little bit. I have no rhythm whatsoever. In fact, I'm so bad that Nick makes me look good.
Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
I think everybody has had a crush on an actor at some point and I think the fantasy of having it come true will appeal to a lot of readers. Also, Ashleigh and her friends are hilarious, their boyfriends are smokin' hot, and if readers like things a little steamy, this book can provide that too.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
Hi, readers! Thanks for your support! I'm a romance reader too, so check out my newsletter for deals and sneak peeks on my books and for recommendations about other great writers. Please feel free to say "hi" on any of my social media accounts.

Olympus heartthrob Nick Thurston is a leading man with a problem. His new play opens in a month and when it comes to the pivotal waltz scene, he can't lead. When he broke up with his dance instructor girlfriend, it also ended their professional relationship and now he needs a new teacher. Desperately.
