Title Surrendering to the Beast
Genre Erotic Paranormal-Romantic Comedy
Author Tina Donahue
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When she's good, she's very good. But when he's bad, she's better.
Taming the Beast, Book 2
As a good fairy, Heather is empathetic and chaste to a fault. No bad language, no dirty thoughts, flirting and no sex. But when a satyr named Daemon steps up to her reception desk at From Crud to Stud, she finds herself on the fast track to exquisite corruption.
Daemon is the total bad-boy package with a kiss straight from the dark side. Though he's here for a supernatural makeover, Heather can't imagine why any red-blooded woman would want him to change.
A disciple of the god of wine, Daemon has had his share of good times. But sex has never been this good. Heather brings out a new side of him, a side that makes him want to protect as well as pillage.
But Daemon needs a little creative backup to help set his fairy's naughtiness free. And that means bringing in Mistress Jin. Under the genie's tutelage and Daemon's shameless lust, Heather is about to learn what it means to let loose.
Warning: Not your typical bedtime story. May lead to indecent behavior, a taste for voyeurism, discipline, bondage, m/f, m/f/f and f/f action, which will result in screaming orgasms. Proceed with caution.

The featured book is Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas by Kayelle Allen, owner of the Romance Lives Forever blog. 

Publisher: Romance Lives Forever Books
Heat level: PG13
Genre: YA (older young adult), action adventure, science fiction, space opera, military science fiction, space marine, genetic engineering
Two enemy warriors: one human, one immortal. Different in belief, alike in spirit, marooned together on an alien world.
Imprisoned and in isolation over a year without food or water, the immortal Pietas survives. Though broken in body, his intellect and will are intact, thanks to Six, the special ops warrior who captured him, but kept him sane. The warrior had no hand in his deprivation and, like Pietas, was betrayed by his own kind. When Pietas is abandoned on an alien world with nothing but his honor--and Six--he must find and rejoin other immortal exiles. After centuries of war, Pietas detests humans and kills them on sight, but he is too damaged to continue on his own. Though he despises needing help, he allows Six to nurture and restore him to full strength, and then accompany him. As they cross the planet together on foot, the immortal begins to wonder if he has found his first human friend, or if Six is loyal only because Pietas could keep the others from tearing him to shreds. This human will either be his closest living friend, or the one whose betrayal will trigger all-out vengeance by the most powerful immortal ever born.
Immortal. Warrior. Outcasts. Traitors took everything. Except their honor.

Seduction in Seville a new #Romantic Suspense by @olivianightread #RLFblog

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

About the Author
Olivia Night, a fictional character herself, has always been an avid reader and writer. She found the romance genre in college and has never been able to get enough. One sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Men of FTI  series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

Interview with Olivia Night
Why did you write this book?
This novel is the second in a series. The main characters, Patrick Kane and Madison Lockwood are introduced in the first novel. Their story is very different from Seduction in Sierra Leone, but all the suspense, sexiness and love are all there!
What is your favorite genre to read?
It actually varies depending on my mood. But I have an entire book case dedicated to Historical Non Fiction and Biographies. So totally different from Romantic Suspense obviously!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Anne Shirley, without a doubt. I love her spunk. And I like to think that I have it, too!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
The third novel in this series, Seduction in Scotland will be released on August 1st. I also just finished a manuscript for a new series tentatively titled A Second Chance Series. I am really excited about both of these novels. A spin off of The Men of FTI is in the works as well. The series is titled Interitus and follows a  group of military men who are part of a secret “peace making group”.

Please tell us about your latest book.
About the Book
In a hospital in Seville, Spain, Patrick Kane lies in a coma. Ambushed and shot while protecting a friend, he fights to survive.
She never thought she would see him again. Patrick, the man who’d brought her back.
Eight years ago, Patrick Kane, a joint partner in Fairlane Trade International, descended into a basement of horrors. That horrible day he rescued many women, but one he would always remember. Her beautiful doe eyes filled his dreams and haunted his nightmares.
Madison Lockwood, a nurse, has struggled to put her past behind her, trying to forget the time she spent in captivity. But she recognizes the man who rescued her and brought her out of that terrifying reality. She owes him her life. Patrick is gravely injured, and Madison vows to see him through.
When Patrick opens his eyes, he instantly knows that he made a mistake leaving Madison after freeing her from the clutches of a human trafficking ring. She is meant to be his. As Patrick tries to win over a wary Madison, the past they both thought was gone for good comes back with a vengeance. One by one, the survivors of the horrific ordeal are being murdered. Patrick knows that Madison will be next if he doesn’t protect her.
Together they must fight for their survival. Seduction In Seville, book two in the Men of FTI series, is a tale of redemption, murder, new beginnings, and love that takes the reader on a wild, exotic ride.

The Doctor and The Debutante
Nicholas Ramsay, renouncing his aristocratic heritage and dark past, has chosen a career as a doctor. He arrives in London ready to embark upon his practice and find a suitable wife.

Meet Queen Morgan from King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court #scifi fantasy @KimHeadlee #RLFblog

Meet Queen Morgan from King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Kim Headlee.

Author Bio

Kim Headlee lives on a farm in the mountains of southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, fish, 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. She has been an award-winning published novelist since 1999 (Dawnflight, first edition, Simon & Schuster) and has been studying the Arthurian legends for nigh on half a century.

About the Book

Title King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson Headlee
Genre Science Fiction and Fantasy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings G, PG, PG13, R): PG for combat violence, language, and Victorian-style innuendo
WINNER, 2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for Science Fiction & Fantasy
Morgan le Fay, sixth-century Queen of Gore and the only major character not killed off by Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can travel back in time to destroy her world. But the spell misses by 300 miles and 200 years, landing her in the Washington, D.C., of 2079, replete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings, virtual-reality television, and sundry other technological marvels.
Whatever is a time-displaced queen of magic and minions to do? Why, rebuild her kingdom, of course—two kingdoms, in fact: as Campaign Boss for the reelection of American President Malory Beckham Hinton, and as owner of the London Knights world-champion baseball franchise.
Written as though by the old master himself, King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson Headlee offers laughs, love, and a candid look at American society, popular culture, politics, baseball... and the human heart.

Introducing Queen Morgan the Wise

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We're happy to have you here today.
Name: Morgan
Age: Sixteen hundred and eight in the latter years of your century. In my rightful century, my age is none of your concern.
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Tintagel Castle
Profession: Queen of Gore
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): I am human. That is all that should matter to you mad people.
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
My glorious silken hair is auburn. Anyone who calls it “red,” like that of the coarse, unruly mane sported by my dead husband, King Uriens, shall join our dungeon’s denizen who made that same mistake. Provoke me to exceptional anger, and I shall arrange faux funerals of your kin for you to watch from your window slit too.
All my other features are kept perfect by cause of my magic… or cosmetics, to which my assistant Clarice introduced me in your century. Using cosmetics in lieu of magic I have found to be ever so much more efficient in terms of energy expended, allowing me to focus my magic on far more important pursuits, such as causing the peerless Malory Beckham Hinton to become President for Life (she vetoed my idea to make her Queen of America, though I know for a certain fact that she would be quite good at it).
Who is the significant other in your life?
In my ancient life, the man I loved best was Sir Accolon, the comeliest of men and manliest of lovers. In the latter twenty-first century, Sandy Carter—who could be my dead lover’s twin—owns my heart, and I his. Sandy surpasses my dead lover in all respects, bedchamber prowess most especially, by a hundred fold.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
My name, Morgan, was chosen by my mother, Duchess Igraine, to honor the Great Queen of the Old Religion, Mór Rigan, goddess of war. My mother never knew how prophetic her choice would prove to be.
I am the daughter of Duke Gorlois, the sister of Queen Margawse and Queen Elaine, the wife of King Uriens of Gore, and the mother of Sir Uwaine of the Table Round. Blessed good fortune made me all of these things.
By the capricious hand of ill fortune, King Arthur became my younger half brother, spawned upon my most virtuous and blameless mother by that demon in man’s raiment, Uther Pendragon.
I despised Arthur from the very hour of his birth.
What is your viewpoint on wealth?
I love it, of course, and the more, the better. It can be quite the burden, but it does convey its own brand of magic too.
On what special skills do you rely?
Have you not heard of Morgan the Wise, healer and sorceress extraordinaire? What is the name of the rock under which you have been living?
What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?
I am never without my circlet, for I find it useful in your lunatic century to remain mindful of my true nature. Well… almost never. You shall have to read my chronicle to discover what caused me to become bereft of that symbol of royalty, which had to do with the other item I keep concealed upon my person for emergencies and which I am fully capable of wielding to deadly advantage: a dirk.
Do you have children?
My only son, Sir Uwaine, lies dead and gone these past fifteen centuries. But a mother never forgets the tautness of that eternal bond, I assure you.
Do you care about what others assume about you?
La, what a question! I am a queen. Of course I do not give a single overripe fig for what the masses think of me; I do not require their approval, only their obedience. That said, however, there is one man whose approval I have sought more and more often of late: my lover, Sandy. He has been known to influence my decisions even when he is not present. I find that most disconcerting… and yet not at all unpleasant.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
When Sandy reunited with his lost and presumed-dead sister, I discovered that I craved to see my long-dead brother, King Arthur, that I might set things aright between us. That wish looks unlikely to be fulfilled, alas, though I do remain hopeful that it shall come to pass one day.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
I never had experienced such a calamity of the arts as when my time-travel enchantment failed by three hundred miles and two hundred years. Since I know not how the spell went awry, I confess I have been afraid to assay it again, lest it leave me forever lost in time.
What are your biggest hopes and dreams?
Although I have experienced marvelous adventures in your shiny new century, and Sandy has become more dear to me than any other man I have ever known, I do hope I can one day return to my rightful era. I have made quite a fine place for myself as owner of the London Knights world championship baseball team, but I do not belong here. Sandy, naturally, wishes for me to stay,—but he is man enough to bow to my wishes in this sensitive matter. He is, was, and always will be such a daisy.

Come Love A Cowboy #contemporaryromance @CarolinClemmons #RLFblog

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

About the Author

Caroline Clemmons is an Amazon bestselling and award winning author of historical and contemporary western romances. A frequent speaker at conferences and seminars, she has taught workshops on characterization, point of view, and layering a novel.
Caroline and her husband live in the heart of Texas cowboy country with their menagerie of rescued pets. When she’s not indulging her passion for writing, Caroline enjoys time with family, reading, travel, browsing antiques, genealogy, and getting together with friends.

Interview with Caroline Clemmons

Why did you write this book?
My husband and I enjoy walking through and reading about Southwestern pre-historic ruins. In Garza County TX, there is a Clovis site but it’s on private property and closed to the public, the Garza site. One of the scenes in Grant Me The Moon came to me while my husband and I were driving home from Lubbock back to the DFW Metroplex and we passed through Post, the seat of Garza County. The story has nagged me for years. When Keta Diablo invited me to be in a contemporary western anthology, Come Love A Cowboy, I knew this story had to be the one I wrote.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Western romance is my favorite, but I also like other genres: Regency, WWII, women's fiction, westerns, and mysteries.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Julie Garwood’s Prince Charming.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on another of my Bride Brigade Series, Cassandra, that will be out in April and then Ophelia in May.
Please tell us about your latest book.
All Tory Fraser intended was to show her high school history club students a local archeology dig. How could she know the excursion would involve a murder? Or that one of her students would be suspected as the killer? And she had no idea she would meet the man of her dreams.
Grant Grayson has taken over management of Grayson Ranch near Post, Texas to give his grandfather a less arduous schedule. A flash flood washed away an old talus slope on the ranch to reveal a prehistoric cave that is a Clovis site. Being a good citizen, he invited the nearest large university archaeology department to excavate the cave. When a gorgeous blonde high school teacher asks his permission to take her students to the site, how can he deny her? Especially when he is instantly attracted to her as he’s never been to anyone.
Tory and Grant are drawn in to the investigation to clear her student but unintentionally make themselves a target. Now they must evade the killer to celebrate their new found love.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Sent alone to Scotland to wed a wild Scot and serve the needs of her father and her king, Lady Jessamyn intends to escape the marriage and train horses for the good sisters at a nearby nunnery.

Raeb is done watching everyone he loves live in poverty and despair. His betrothal to a wealthy English heiress will solve a decade of problems, and the Scots' secret plot to keep King Edward I from getting a foothold on their rugged coastline will secure his family's future. If he must deny himself the spirited woman who would warm his bed and his heart, so be it.
Neither is willing to give an inch in this clash of loyalties, but can either defend their hearts?

About the Author

Author of historical, contemporary and erotic romances, I fell in love with happily ever after the day I heard my first story. (Yes, I was a precocious little brat who read at the age of two, but I could hear much earlier than that.) I studied literature for far too many years before discovering that writing stories was much more fun than analyzing them. Heck, as an author, I get to read the story before anyone else. I am happily married to my sweetheart of many, many years. My husband and I share the home of  two cats, who condescend to allow me to feed them and clean their litter box. (The cats only tolerate my husband's assistance when I am not available.)They occasionally permit me to pet them but demand my love and attention as their right. (Funny, my husband demands the same. Could I be married to my cats? Does that make me a trigamist?) Regardless of my specific relationship status with our cats, I am in awe of their feline ability to dominate with half a glance or a mere twitch of tail. Insatiably curious, an avid reader and traveler, I love to hear from readers about your favorite books and real life adventures. Crazy Cat stories are especially welcome. You can send me your words of wisdom . . . Don't shake your head at me; all words are wise in one context or another. You can trust me on this; I'm an author. As I was saying, you can send your words of wisdom, humor, and friendship to me at contact@RueAllyn.com. Can't wait to hear from you.

Winter’s Quest a new #UrbanFantasy by @annekane #RLFblog

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

About the Author

Anne Kane lives in the beautiful Okanagan Valley with a bouncy Jack Russell terrier, a cantankerous Himalayan cat, a bossy little calico and too many fish to count. She spent many years trying to fit in and act normal, but finally gave up the effort. She started writing romance, and her fate was sealed when she won a publishing contract with Red Sage Publishing and just a month later Changeling Press accepted her first submission. Since then she had published more than thirty stories in a variety of sub-genres, all with a happily ever after.
Her hobbies, when she’s not playing with the characters in her head, include kayaking, hiking, motorcycles, swimming, skating, karate, playing guitar, singing and of course, reading.

Interview with Anne Kane

Why did you write this book?
I wrote this book for the sake of my sanity. Winter’s Quest is the fourth book in the Mercenaries Series. The hero and heroine met in the previous book and had been nagging me to write their story for over a year. I finally gave in just to get some peace and quiet!
What is your favorite genre to read?
That’s a tough question, but I’d have to say paranormal romance, closely followed by Urban Fantasy and Science Fiction. I’m really not much of a fan of reality J
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Not my own? Darn! Okay, it’s a toss up between Elena from Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series and Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months? 
I have two projects on the go at the moment. One is a full length novel that I started for NanoWrimo last year. I made the 50,000 word count, but the story isn’t finished yet.  I’m also working on another installment of the Mercenaries Series which should be out late summer or early in the fall.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Trace wants Winter, and he’s not a man to take no for an answer.
Winter remembers all about the insanity of life as a lab rat, but what she doesn’t know is how she got there. Given the mess she’d made out of her life up to this point, she needs to find the answers to her past before she can get on with her future.
Trace isn’t sure why Winter is so hung up on her past but if she plans on chasing all over the nine provinces looking for answers then it’s up to him to make sure she stays safe. And, while they’re spending all that quality time together, maybe he can convince her that he’s more than just a convenient sex partner.

About the Book

Title Locked Box
Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings G, PG, PG13, R): R
Julia Bennett isn’t having a great day. Funding for her video game is running low, her IT job is sucking her dry and to cap it all off she’s locked in a police station with the very handsome, extremely married guy she’s been avoiding at all costs. Max Connor isn’t having a great year. He’s getting divorced, his best friend is squatting in his spare room and his inappropriate crush on the IT girl is getting dangerously out of hand. And that was before he locked the two of them in an evidence room for the weekend. Surrounded by three decade’s worth of drugs, guns and floppy disks, Max and Julia are forced to confront the heat that lies between them with dangerous, funny and occasionally toe-curlingly sexy results.

Introducing Julia Bennett

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We're happy to have you here today.
Name: Julia Bennett          
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Brenthill, Victoria, Australia
Profession: IT woman and game designer
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
I’m super tall with light brown hair, hazel eyes and freckles. I burn very easily in the sun and can get away with not wearing a bra, which I do almost all the time because... Why wouldn’t I.   
Who is the significant other in your life?
Max Connor, I’ve been crushed out on the guy for years which was particularly painful when he was married.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a white trash girl who grew up in rural Australia. When I was a kid all I ever did was eat cheese toasties and play video games so it made sense that I tried to go into professional gaming. I didn’t have a lot of success; gaming is expensive and I’m a woman but my best friend and I are working on our own first person shooter game Scarlet Woman. I’m not great with people, especially guys, especially guys called Max Connor
What kinds of things do you always carry (in pockets or purse)?
Mints (for unexpected kissing) Condoms (for when things progress further), two USB storage devices, an external hard drive, lip balm and a bunch of unwrapped cough lollies that have merged into a superball of grossness.
Are you involved in your community?
I’m involved in my community in the sense that my sister and I adopt dozens of stray dogs and let them clog up our house and garden. This annoys a lot of our neighbors but if they complain we go around to their house with a couple of the saddest looking dogs and tell them to take them to the pound if they hate dogs so much.
How do others perceive you based upon looks, and is this assumption accurate? In the IT industry and the gaming world being a woman is a huge setback. You might think being young and I guess conventionally attractive would be helpful but it really isn’t. People think you’re stupid, that you slept you way to a job or that you don’t know what you’re doing. They also expect you to be nice which is bull. I’m an amazing coder but I’m shy and not really that nice, unless you’re already my mate or you bring me coffee.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m an IT person, I know so much dirt about so many people it is unhinged. Basically nothing surprises me anymore. On that note I’m good at keeping secrets, mostly by stuffing them down and pretending they don’t exist because I don’t want to be thinking about your google history when I pass you in the hallway.
How do you handle challenges?
By curling up under my duvet and eating toasted cheese sandwiches until someone else makes me take responsibility for my life. I know that sounds bad but I have confrontation issues. Unless by challenges you mean ‘gaming related challenges’ in that case I drink a shit-tonne of Red Bull and I go to war.
How emotionally expressive are you to others?
I express my emotions mostly through grunting and fixing/breaking your electronic devices. Emotions are not my strong suit. I probably shouldn’t be telling you this but I’m extremely susceptible to guilt trips. I’ll give you my kidneys if you make me feel guilty enough.
What would you like to tell your writer?
Cheers for making me look semi-cool but you really went into a lot of detail with the sex stuff didn’t you? I mean I don’t care but Max is going to be super embarrassed when he finds out. He hasn’t gotten over his whole ‘fine upstanding gentlemen don’t spank people’ thing. Also please write a sequel about my sister. Ash’s story needs to be told. To take the spotlight off me.

Meet Elias Gallagher from Wolf on a Mission #PNR @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog


Meet Elias Gallagher from Wolf on a Mission by NJ Walters.

Author Bio

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks--all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.

About the Book

Title Wolf on a Mission
Genre PNR
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When love runs wild, there are no limits.
Salvation Pack, Book 6
Full-blooded werewolf Elias Gallagher, sole guardian of his half-breed teenage nephews, is all too aware that the world is not a safe place for a werewolf on his own. Doubly so for half-breeds.
He brings his nephews to North Carolina to check out the Salvation Pack’s openness to half-breeds. He never expected to find a mate--the fully human mother of a young boy--while there.
After enduring one tragedy after another over the past two years, Sue Walsh is focused solely on earning a living and raising her five-year-old son. With her ex suddenly demanding custody, the last complication she wants or needs is an attraction to a ruggedly handsome stranger.
But the sexual pull between them is too strong to be denied. And when there’s trouble with the local hunters, Elias will do whatever it takes to protect the people he loves. Even if it means revealing his biggest secret.

Meet Elias Gallagher

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We're happy to have you here today.
Name: Elias Gallagher
Age: I’m 50 but I look much younger since werewolves have a lifespan twice that of humans.
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Alaska
Profession: I used to own a construction company with my brother
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Werewolf
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars. I’m 6’2” and about 220 pounds. I have brown hair and eyes. I’m tanned from spending most of my life outdoors.
Who is the significant other in your life?
*smiles slowly* That would be Sue. She’s everything to me.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
What do you want to know? I’m a simple man. I like the outdoors, working with my hands, and my family is the most important thing in my world.
How do you dress?
I’m a jeans and T-shirt kinda guy. No suit and tie for me. I don’t know how guys can breathe in those things.
Please tell us about your education.
Like the rest of my pack, I was home-schooled. I have a basic high school education. Everything else I needed to learn, I did so by doing. I’m good with my hands. *holds hands out in front of him*
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
Personally, I don’t need much, but I want to provide well for my family. My nephews are teenagers. They need freedom and the outdoors, as well as a roof over their heads and food in their stomachs. I want to give Sue a home of her own, a place she can be proud of, a safe place for her and her son to live. She deserves that. I have money and can earn whatever my family needs. We live a comfortable life.
On what special skills do you rely?
I’m a werewolf. That automatically means I’m stronger and faster than any human. I have much sharper senses too. There’s not much I can’t do if I put my mind to it.
What is your family like?
Since the death of my brother and sister-in-law, my nephews are my family. They’re everything to me. Keeping them safe and happy is my goal in life. It’s what brought me to Salvation in the first place. Now I have Sue and her son Billy.
Are you involved in your community?
I’m in a pack. It’s impossible not to be involved. We live close together and share at least one meal a day with other members of the pack. To say we’re close is an understatement.
Do you see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Some things are black-and-white. A man loves and protects his woman and his family. He always puts their welfare first. He works hard for what he has. Everything else is shades of gray.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m a werewolf. Of course I can keep a secret. You think we run around telling everyone what we are?
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
I worry most about being able to protect my nephews, and now Sue and her son.
What is your biggest personal flaw?
*laughs* I suppose I can be a bit stubborn at times. But I don’t really see that as a flaw. I see it as being determined.

Shrouded Passions by @fayehall79 #RLFblog #historicalromance

Today's featured book is Shrouded Passions by Faye Hall.

About the Book

Title Shrouded Passions
Genre Historical erotic romance
Author Faye Hall
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
It was love at first sight when Devon Munroy first laid eyes on Lotte Higgins as she swam in the local waterhole.  He wanted nothing more than to spend his future with her.  He would have defied his father to do so too had she not been shot, lying bleeding and dying in his arms.
The woman he loved was dead and Devon no longer cared what was to become of his future.
Four years passed and Devon’s life had become little more than a drunken haze.  All he wanted was the woman he loved back in his life and in his bed.  When he reluctantly went to the local Hotel to spend the night with a woman, he didn’t expect her to look so much like Lotte Higgins.  He certainly didn’t expect her to turn up at his estate as his wife’s new handmaiden.
When Lotte started work at Devon’s estate, she thought only to reveal the monster who had tried to kill her four years before.  She never imagined the whirlwind of passion she would be swept up in with Devon Munroy.
Lotte knew if she were to succeed in targeting her attempted murderer, she would have to keep her true identity hidden from Devon.  Lotte wanted nothing more than to tell him the truth, but she feared if she did than Devon’s wife, the woman whom had already tried to kill her once, would discover she had survived that night.
When more bodies began turning up around the town, all brutally murdered, Lotte knew she had let things go on long enough.  She would have to tell Devon the truth about his wife and about herself and hope he loved her enough to forgive her deception.

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.
