About the Book

Lexi's life is one big dump. Or so she thinks. To keep her mind off her latest breakup, she stays busy with work. It's no big deal, since writing for Time Out Portland Magazine is a blast...except for the one small snag – Grant Reeds. Grant, a shy but sexy computer geek, is new to Time Out, working as the Networking Director for the online magazine. Even though Lexi thinks he doesn't notice her, he sure as hell does. The owners have a plan for their upcoming Valentine's Special, pairing up the two to explore romantic date ideas around the city. Soon, Lexi and Grant learn that the old adage, "Opposites Attract," can ring true.

#amreading Lady of the Knight a new #scifiromance by @mjschiller #RLFblog

Lady of the Knight
by MJ Schiller 
This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

M.J. Schiller is a lunch lady/romance-romantic suspense writer. She enjoys writing novels whose characters include rock stars, desert princes, teachers, futuristic Knights, construction workers, cops, and a wide variety of others. In her mind everybody has a romance. She is the mother of a twenty-year-old and three eighteen-year-olds. That's right, triplets! So having recently taught four children to drive, she likes to escape from life on occasion by pretending to be a rock star at karaoke. Uhh…you won't be seeing her name on any record labels soon.

Interview with M.J. Schiller

Why did you write this book?
The first book in the series, Leap Into The Knight, was inspired by a reoccurring dream. After I finished writing it, I realized the story wasn't over…
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance in pretty much any form, but I prefer contemporary or romantic suspense.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
You can't make me choose between R.T. Wolfe's Reed men from the Black Creek Burning Series! First, there was Nathan. I fell in love with him and didn't think I'd like Andy's story, but I did. And then Duncan in the third book turned out to possibly be the hottest of them all!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
The third book in the Romantic Knight Trilogy is on my laptop but next up is a contemporary romance titled "Blackout." It is part of my Real Romance Collection and follows the story of Faith and Max…and Eli. Uh-oh! Yes, Faith and Eli are brought together by a blackout, and ripped apart by a second blackout. Max steps up to fill the void, but then Eli returns! Yeah, it's quite a mess I get these three characters in. I hope it is a story that will touch you and make you dream about alternate endings!
Please tell us about your latest book.

by Emily Mims

What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and black-eyed peas
Describe the perfect vacation.
A road trip! My husband and I like to pile in the SUV, set the GPS (or not) and go where our curiosity takes us, having destinations in mind but at the same time the freedom to stop and explore if we see something that interests us.
What are your hobbies?
I play four instruments and perform in two bands, a dulcimer band that plays old Appalachian folk music and an all-ukulele band that plays a mixture of fun numbers
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Romance novels-what else?
What kinds of things do you read when you're researching a new book?
Wow-that depends on the book. For 'Daughter of Valor' and its two accompanying Lunchbox romances, I Googled everything from prostheses to IED and RPG explosions to grenades to paraplegic sex. I also do hands-on research. For my next book, 'Never and Always', I learned to make soap.
