Interview with Jamie Salisbury and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to RFTC author Jamie Salisbury. Jamie is on tour celebrating the recent release of her book Timeless Sojurn and has stopped by to answer some questions. Before we get to the interview, lets get to know Jamie some.

Jamie Salisbury cannot imagine a time when she did not write. A skill that has served her well throughout her professional career. Public relations in and around the entertainment industry, photography, editing, and special event planning all elevated her passion for writing.

An avid reader of histories, biographies, and romance, it's only natural that part of the products of her pen are historical romances featuring characters so authentic they spring forth from the page and shake the reader's hand. Many of her teen years were spent in Chile, but she and her family were forced out of the country when the political climate demanded it.

Taking the plunge to take her writing professional came as a result of a series of foot surgeries that left her with a lot of time on her hands. Unable to walk great distances at the time, she started writing as a way to pass the time. Her experiences of how dramatically her life had changed at first. Then the new world of e-publishing inspired her to digitally publish her first novel, Perpetual Love, rather than relegate it to the dreaded drawer. She couldn't be happier with her decision to grab the publishing industry by the shoulders and force it to pay attention to all she has to offer. Two more novels have followed: Blood Lust and Tudor Rose, with more to follow soon.

Jamie now lives outside of Atlanta, but the love for travel has never abandoned her. Adventure, exploration, and intrigue permeate her prose to the core.

In those few moments of the day when she's not writing or thinking about writing, she finds knitting a way to relax and unwind. Other interests include photography, equestrianism, reading, and of course traveling.

Jamie hopes her writing will entertain, enlighten, and inspire others to pick up the pen and pursue their own dreams. She loves to be contacted by readers, writers, and history buffs.

Guest Post with Author Leia Shaw and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome author Leia Shaw back to the blog. Leia is currently on tour promoting her book Destiny Bewitched and has stopped by to chat. Before I give the floor over to Leia, lets get to know her a bit.

I began my writing journey while I was stranded at the airport waiting for my delayed flight. I browsed the Border’s kiosk and grew frustrated that I couldn’t find the “it factor” — the perfect combination of alpha male-ness, ass-kickery, strong females, magic, and sex.

So I spent the next four hours on an airplane writing my first book on scraps of paper and an airsick bag (which thankfully I didn't need to use).

Now I spend too much time in my head, plotting evil villains and the hot men (and women) who ruthlessly kill them. I think far too much about fae politics, dragon power games, and how fast werewolves can change forms. But writing my paranormal romance series has given me a productive place to express those dark places in my mind.

I live in New England with my husband and two kids. Though I will go to my grave denying it, my husband insists I would be thrilled if he suddenly sprouted fangs.

Interview with Author Roni Loren and Giveway

Today I am happy to welcome back to RFTC, author Roni Loren. Roni is currently on tour celebrating the release of her newest book, Melt Into You. Roni has allowed me to ask her some questions, but before we get to the interview lets get to know a bit about Roni.

Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. After earning a master’s degree in social work from LSU, she worked in a mental hospital, counseled birthmothers as an adoption coordinator, and did management recruiting in her PJs. But she always returned to writing.

Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars concerts. She is the National Bestselling Author of The Loving on the Edge series from Berkley Heat.

Interview with Author Nana Malone and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome author Nana Malone to the blog. Nana is currently on tour for her book Forsaken Protector and has stopped by to answer some questions. Before we chat with Nana, lets get to know her some.

My love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense I borrowed from my cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. I've been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With my overactive imagination, and channeling my inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before I started creating my own characters.

Waiting for my chance at a job as a ninja assassin, I, meantime work out my drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as I thinks I am. Though, until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find me acting out scenes for hubby and puppy while catching up on my favorite reality television shows in sunny San Diego.

ARC Review: Angel Betrayed by Cynthia Eden

This was my first book from Cynthia Eden and it definitely won't be my last. I love the world she has created. From the first page until the last I was loathe to stop reading. There is just so much going on that I found myself quickly turning the page to see what was going to happen. The chemistry between Sam and Seline is instant and it's hot!

Sam was once an angel but now is a fallen. Once an angel of death, but when he began killing people who weren't supposed to die he was kicked out of the heavens and lost his wings. Sam will never apologize, nor does he regret his decisions, the people he killed deserved their deaths. Now centuries later, he still kills the ones who deserve it and he trusts no one, this includes Seline.

Seline is half succubus and half angel, and she needs help gaining her freedom. She was raised by Rogziel, a punishment angel who has been using her to gain what he wants. Now he wants Sam, and Seline knows that with this last job she will finally gain her freedom. But what starts off as job quickly turns into so much more. Seline can't resist Sam's allure and they both quickly come to an agreement. Sam will help her gain her freedom as long as she helps him find his brother Az.

At first neither Sam nor Seline trusts one another. Both have trust issues and with good reason. I really enjoyed watching these two interact with one another. The attraction between these two is electric and both find it hard to keep their hands off of one another. But what quickly starts out as just sex becomes so much more. They both are just trying to get by and neither want to fall for the other. I enjoyed watching them both drop their walls and let each other in.

This book was non stop action and I can't wait to read more from Cynthia Eden. I'm especially eager to see where this series is going to go now. Lots of things are happening and making things really interesting. I definitely hope to possibly see more of Sam and Seline in the future.

Feature: Married By Monday by Catherine Bybee

Carter Billings:

Sandy blond hair and Hollywood good looks, Carter Billings could have any woman he wants. However, when he makes his bid for the Governor's seat in the state of California, he needs to settle down and become a family man. Eliza, the woman he secretly adores, embodies the perfect amount of spice and passion to suit his marital needs, but she’s not interested in becoming Mrs. Billings. She can't even stand to be in the same room with him.

Eliza Havens:

It’s much easier to drive Carter away than to give into desire. Matching couples is how she earns a living, but getting married isn’t an option. The secrets she carries are too dangerous to entangle anyone else. When her hidden identity and past threaten her future, she’s left with little choice. Carter is quick to offer solutions to both their problems, but saying yes could mean endangering the man she’s growing to love.
