When Zan Dane, ruler of Pelicosia, finds ninety-five women for his men, he never dreams of finding his own mate.

Chelian Kar is Deliphit, an outcast with supernatural powers. Though she is the daughter of the High Chancellor of Kel, Satobik laws prohibit her from having physical contact with anyone. While other young women are mated to men chosen by their fathers, Chelian has no such hope until Zan Dane soars into her life. With an offer of zeel, a commodity most men would die for, Zan Dane convinces her father to allow the union. Will his journey lead him to a treasure richer than zeel?

Meet Mandy: Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #suspense

Welcome Mandy Devlin from Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor, a new contemporary romance by Kryssie Fortune.

About Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor

Genre Contemporary Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): UK 18
Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family--under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam--the man she loved and lost so long ago.
Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her.
As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?

Introducing Mandy Devlin

Age: 30
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Westhorpe Ridge, North Carolina
Profession: Teacher turned Hotelier.
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I’m a redhead, with a redhead’s temper. Not that I ever stay angry long. I used to wear my hair long, but as a single mom, it’s easier to wear it shorter. It still flies about in spiral curls. Other than that, I’m sort of average—Average weight, Average build, but I have a redhead’s pale skin.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
This one is hard. I was the idiot cheerleader who ended up pregnant with the captain of the football team’s baby. Circumstances, or more truthfully, Adam’s wicked Great Aunt Edith—forced me to move away from my home and my family. The last eleven years haven’t been easy, but I have a wonderful son. I wouldn’t be without Ben now. I trained as a teacher, and even scraped together enough cash to buy my grandmother’s hotel when she wanted to retire. Owning Devlin’s hotel was a childhood dream, but I’m a bit fazed by how much she’s let it go.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Yeah right. As if I have time for romance. Once, I dreamed of forever with Adam Devlin. We’d been dating for four years, then he dumped me right in the middle of dance floor at our senior prom. At least I know he’s moved on from Westhorpe Ridge now. According to his sister, he’s an army doctor serving in the Middle East. Not that I’m keeping track or anything.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Book smart, I guess. I have a Math degree with a minor in Business Studies. I’ve tried to wise up and be people smart too. I’ve been down on my luck myself, so I help out wherever I can, but most of my life’s devoted to raising Ben.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
Comfortably? I wish. I had a nest egg, a payoff from Adam’s great aunt really, but I used it to get through school and put down the deposit on Devlin’s Hotel. Things are pretty tight, but they’ll get better when I’ve updated the hotel. The lunchroom’s keeping us afloat at the moment, and I’ve got a small emergency fund. I really need to be making a profit by summer though.
What is your viewpoint on wealth?
It depends what you do with it. Two of my friends, Jazz Stewart and Abigail Montgomery have just inherited a small fortune each. I know they’ll use it to do good things. Edith Montgomery, though—that’s Adam’s old bat of an aunt—used her millions to manipulate people. You wouldn’t believe the things she threatened to do to my family when I refused to abort my baby. The compromise was she paid me off and I left town after I signed a contract that said I couldn’t tell anyone who my baby’s father is. Not even Adam.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
Adam Montgomery. I guess part of my heart still belongs to him, but you hit the nail on the head when you called him my past.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?
Adam Montgomery. It would kill me to see him with someone else. Now his great aunt’s dead though, I need to tell him about Ben. I’m not sure where I start with that, but he’s going to freak out when he discovers he has a ten-year-old son he’s never met.

What is your breaking point?
This damned hotel. I’m pretty close to throwing in the towel and going back to teaching. Every room needs a facelift, and I can’t afford to get people in to do it. I mean, I love the place, and Ben’s settled in Westhorpe Ridge now. The upside is I get more time with my son, but then I’m up at dawn and working until midnight.

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae or BDSM loving dragons.
Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life - or Kryssie - throws at them.
Kryssie's pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that ends on a cliff hanger.
Her books are all stand alone, even when they’re part of a series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit.

Midnight Delight by @CadenceDenton #RLFblog #paranormal #mystery

Today's featured book is Midnight Delight by Cadence Denton.
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Cozy Mystery
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Call me Contessa. Forget my name, you couldn't pronounce it. I'm a professional chef—actually, I'm the LeBron James of chefs. Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay even Julia Childs have all been my students, and that's just a few. I've probably forgotten more about the culinary arts than any chef alive has learned. I was in the thick of things when today's conventional culinary techniques were first being developed. You ever used the three basic steps in dicing an onion? Prego. That was me. Ever heard of clarified butter? Bingo. Me again.
How can that be? I was born in Genoa, Italy in the year of our Lord 1642. That's right. I'm an Eternal, a creature of darkness, a vampire…and I'm obsessed by what I cannot eat. Food.
Ironically, I'm the star of my very own cooking show on the Foodie Culinary Channel. My dream job! Where I get to create the recipes I adore and share them with my audience and one lucky dinner guest. Which is where my troubles began. And will end.
I was caught partaking the red jungle juice from the neck of my dinner date. I was threatened, attacked with Holy water, and finally blackmailed by my mild-mannered joke of an Associate Producer. As it turns out, she isn't so mild-mannered.
Now I have two choices: turn her into a child of darkness or risk exposure to the human world.
I'm thinking there's a third choice. His name is Rocco Guadagnino
[Review -- I adored this book! It's a quick read and more addictive than my husband's four-meat marinara. Fast-paced, quirky dialogue and a sweet paranormal romance, Midnight Delight will delight your reading taste buds. I can't wait to read the next installment in the series!]

I Love You Three @MilouKoenings #RLFblog sweet #romance

Welcome Milou Koenings, author of I Love You Three, a Green Pines Romance, a new sweet contemporary romance.
Why did you write this book?
Because the characters pretty much insisted!
As I was writing the first Green Pines Romance, Reclaiming Home, I found myself falling in love with Mac and Julie, a young couple who featured briefly in that story. I kept wondering how those two had met. Then I wrote another Green Pines Romance, and there they were again! So when I started hearing from readers how much they liked Julie and Mac as well, I knew I had to write their story.
They gave me an opportunity to delve into issues that are important to me, like the daily struggles of single moms, and post-traumatic stress disorder. And, of course, second chances and happy endings.
It's the newest in the Green Pines Romance series, but chronologically, it happens before any of the other three books.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Books with happy endings. That means romances are my favorite. If it's a romantic comedy, even better. I love an author who can make me laugh! (That said, I'm also a spy thriller junkie...)
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
At the moment, Juliet Ashton, from the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I love her wide-open heart, her grit, her wit, her love of books.
What are you working on at the moment?
Another Green Pines Romance, of course. And a new women's fiction series I hope to launch in the next year.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre: Sweet Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G/PG
A former Marine. A single mom. Two broken people.
Mac's struggling to adjust to civilian life after the death in combat of his best friend. When a teaching job opens up in the small town where his friend used to work in the summers, Mac takes it as a sign and moves to Green Pines, hoping to find refuge from his demons.
For Julie, there's no refuge from night feedings, a crazy mom, an ex-mother-in-law and an overdrawn bank account. She's struggling to build a better life for herself and her baby and the only thing she knows is she's not falling for any guy again.

There's only one problem. You never know when love will knock you off your feet.

Welcome Kate Hill author of Fangs and Fists 1: Bolt, a new erotic paranormal romance.

Romance, in particular paranormal and historical.

Scorpius from the Farscape TV series.
What are you working on at the moment?
Right now I'm working on the second story in the Fangs and Fists series.

I have 3 Fangs and Fists stories under contract with Changeling Press, but I'm hoping the series will either go longer or possibly have a spin-off series because I have plans for more.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
In a futuristic world ruled by demons, werewolves are enslaved to fight in gladiatorial matches for the amusement of their evil masters.
Kiara remembers what life was like living free–before she was taken by demons and bred to gladiators so that the new generations of wolves would retain their ferocity but forget their freedom. Mated to top gladiator Grit, she has a son with this surprisingly gentle lover who is also planning their escape. When Grit is killed in the arena, his close friend Bolt upholds his promise to protect Kiara and the cub.
Bolt and Kiara have loved each other from the moment they met, but they buried their feelings because she was mated to his best friend. When Grit dies, despite their guilt, Bolt and Kiara surrender to their desire for each other. Will their love be strong enough to help them win freedom from their evil masters?

Always a fan of romance and the paranormal, I started writing over twenty years ago for pleasure. My first story, a short erotic vampire tale, was accepted for publication in 1996. Since then I've sold over one hundred short stories, novellas and novels.
I love to blend genres. I also love horror and a happily ever after, so my books can be a bit unusual. If you're looking for romance with witches, aliens, vampires, angels, demons, shapeshifters and more, there's a good chance you'll find something to your taste in my backlist.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading, watching horror and action movies, working out and spending time with my family and pets.
