Bestselling Romantic Comedy Author Alicia Street talks “I Heart Valentine’s Day”

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!

We’re starting our Valentine’s Day Celebration a wee bit early here at The RG2E with the help of one of my fave authors and good friends – Bestselling Romantic Comedy Author Alicia Street.

Take it away, Alicia…

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a special day for those of us who love romance. J Aside from wondering what my DH might give me, I can’t help dreaming about how the sweethearts in the Dance ‘n’ Luv contemporary romance series might celebrate.

I would guess Parker, gardener supreme, would make a gorgeous heart of roses for Tanya. And maybe his sister Casey would challenge the cocky wiseguy Drew to another ping-pong match, only this time sans clothing. I can see Amanda and Russ staying cozy by a fire in his fisherman’s bungalow. And Jenna and Aiden would take in a show and do the town in NYC.

If you haven’t yet met these couples yet, in the series, I’ve put the Dance ‘n’ Luv Contemporary Romance Boxed Set at a special price. Plus I’ll be giving one away today!

And since I invited some author friends to chime in on what their characters might be up to for Valentine’s Day, you’ll also have a chance to either buy at a sale price or win a free copy of the books listed below!

To start off, we’ve got three Valentine themed ebooks! Christy Hayes’s Good Luck, Bad Timing & When Harry Met Sally, Sheila Seabrook’s The Valentine Grinch and Kristine Cayne’s Un-Valentine’s Day.

Let’s start with Good Luck, Bad Timing & When Harry Met Sally by Christy Hayes. How would your story sweethearts celebrate?

Slide1

Christy: The couple from my stand-alone short story met on Valentine’s Day so this holiday would also be their anniversary. As New York City residents, Celia and David would probably venture to Madison Square Garden to take in a hockey game if one were scheduled for Valentines. If not hockey, perhaps basketball since that is Celia’s favorite sport. They would then go to the pizza restaurant where they shared their first meal and end the night as David would have preferred on their first unofficial date: wrapped in each other’s arms.”

In Sheila Seabrook’s LOL novella, The Valentine Grinch, the heroine Amanda hates Valentine’s Day. Luckily she meets up with Dane, her high school buddy, and he’s intent on changing her mind about it. So what are they doing on this special day?

Sheila: They’re going to Grandma Elvira’s wedding — which is giving them both a few wedding ideas of their own. 🙂

In Kristine Cayne’s novelette, Un-Valentine’s Day, her heroine is also set against this lovers’ holiday. How come?

Kristine: Cassie, the heroine, hates the sappy romantic holiday because the previous year, instead of getting a Valentine’s Day proposal from her now ex-boyfriend, she caught him cheating. But Noah is determined to give her the best, most unexpected Valentine’s Day ever. Cassie doesn’t know what to expect, but it certainly isn’t the day of testosterone-laden activities and the revelation that there is more to cute-but-more-than-a-little-nerdy Noah. Much more.

What about the fab couple in Chicki Brown’s Ain’t Too Proud To Beg?

ATPTB - Final Large Cover

Chicki: Private time is at a minimum for Vaughn and Trenyce. Both of them treasure time away from the hustle and bustle of Tinseltown and the prying eyes of the paparazzi. Since Trenyce has lived most of her life inland, she has an absolute fetish for the ocean. Vaughn and Trenyce’s perfect Valentine’s Day would be a trip to a secluded island retreat where no one recognizes him.  A beautiful retreat in Fiji fits the bill perfectly.

And I am definitely up for the kind of Valentine gift cooked up by MJ, Diana Layne’s hero from Trust No One.

Diana: Retired from the dangerous world of espionage, MJ Thornberg and Ben Walker live a quiet life in small town Texas where they own an auto repair shop. Since MJ’s the mechanic, Ben is sneaking away from the office to enlist the help of Dottie, best cook this side of the Red River, to make MJ a down home meal of chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, black-eyed peas, collard greens and cornbread. Plus, he’s making MJ a decadent chocolate-layer cake all by himself.  (Wonder what the kitchen is going to look like when he’s finished?) The question is, will MJ be able to work the next day or will she be in a food-induced coma and have to close down shop to stay home–in bed with Ben?

The food factor also comes into play for the sweethearts in Nana Malone’s Sultry in Stilettos.

Sultry In Stilettos_Romantic Comedy_Contemporary romance_2000

Nana: Since Beckett and Ricca are such a new couple, they’d spend a quiet night alone. Ricca knows the way to Beckett’s heart is through his…. stomach, so she’d make him all his Trinidadian favorites, in particular Callaloo. And Beckett, knowing his woman is so busy taking care of others that she barely has time for herself, would spend the day pampering her. Massage, nails, hair, the works. She wouldn’t have to leave the house or lift a finger for anything. He’d be her personal manservant.

RG2E Featured Author Kristine Cayne Interviews Her Characters

Happy Monday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Here’s a superfab fun interview RG2E Featured Author Kristine Cayne did with two of her characters.

Take it away, Kristine…

Hello Everyone! I’m excited to be here with you today at the RG2E. It’s such a great place for readers and authors to connect. It’s also a great place to let you meet two of my favorite characters!

I have the pleasure of sharing with you and interview I did with Rémi Whitedeer and Alyssa Morgan, the hero and heroine of Deadly Addiction, the latest book in my Deadly Vices romantic suspense series. Rémi and Alyssa were unusually candid in responding to my questions, and I think you will enjoy this unique view into their world.

A proud people. A nation divided.

Rémi Whitedeer, police officer turned substance-abuse counselor, dreams of restoring order to his tribe. Violence and crime are rampant throughout the unpoliced Iroquois reserve, and a civil war is brewing between the Guardians, a militant traditionalist group, and other tribal factions. As the mixed-race cousin of the Guardians’ leader, Rémi is caught in a no-man’s land—several groups lay claim to him, but all want him to deny his white blood.

A maverick cop on an anti-drug crusade.

When she infiltrated the Vipers to take down the leader of the outlaw biker gang responsible for her brother’s death, police sergeant Alyssa Morgan got her man. But her superiors think she went too far. Her disregard for protocol and her ends-justify-the-means ethics have branded her an unreliable maverick. To salvage her career, she accepts an assignment to set up a squad of native provincial officers on a reserve.

A radical sovereigntist bent on freeing a nation.

Decades of government oppression threaten the existence of the Iroquois Nation. But one man, Chaz Whitedeer, is determined to save his people no matter what the price, even if it means delving into the shadowy world of organized crime.

When Rémi and Alyssa uncover the Guardians’ drug-fueled scheme to fund their fight for true autonomy—a scheme involving the Vipers—Rémi must choose between loyalty to family and tribe or his growing love for Alyssa.

Can Rémi and Alyssa leave everything behind—even their very identities—for a future together?

KC: What is your guilty pleasure?

Rémi: Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” – “Let you put your hands on me in my skin-tight jeans” – I can’t stop singing it!

Alyssa: [laughs] I love the Sang-Froid sloches from the dépanneur.

Rémi: That’s cause you’re ice-cold, baby.

Alyssa: Stop! Now I’m thinking about Vanilla Ice.

Rémi: [singing] Ice, ice baby. All right stop, collaborate and listen!

Alyssa: [covers ears] Please, I beg you.

KC: If this book was made into a movie, who would play you?

Rémi: I don’t know who’d play me, but Katherine Heigl could play Alyssa.

Alyssa: You really think so? I’m flattered. As for you, Adam Beach, back when he was in Squanto: A Warrior’s Tale.

KC: What movie title best describes your sex life?

Rémi: Goin’ South [winks]

Alyssa: Goldfinger [laughs]

KC: What’s your motto?

Rémi: All for one, one for all.

Alyssa: It’s my way or the highway.

Rémi: [shakes head] It always is, sweetheart. It always is. [turns to interviewer, winks and whispers]: I just let her *think* that.

KC: What drew you to your partner?

Rémi: [turns to Alyssa] I know you want me to say it was the intelligence shining in your eyes, sweetheart, but I gotta be honest here. You were all bent over, clutching that box, and I had a clear view of your… um… beauteous bounty. And then when you turned around, I saw your ah… other assets. All I could think was “I want to do her. Now.”

Alyssa: [smiles innocently]

Rémi: What?

Alyssa: Did you think I was waxing poetic about your IQ? I was just trying not to drool!

KC: What’s your favorite food?

Rémi: Iroquois corn soup

Alyssa: Strawberry drink

KC: What’s your favorite alcoholic beverage?

Rémi: [turns to Alyssa and smiles] I bet yours is sangria.

Alyssa: [turns green] After Nic and Lauren’s party, never again!

KC: Tell me one thing about you that your friends don’t know.

Rémi: My male friends don’t know about a certain “technique” the ladies have named after me.

Alyssa: [fans herself] And they’d better never find out! As for me, there’s nothing my friends don’t know about me.

Rémi: Oh yeah? Do your friends know about that sexy lingerie you wear under your uniform?

Alyssa: [blushes] Well, now they do!

KC: What’s your favorite movie?

Rémi: Die Hard [big grin]

Alyssa: Anything Star Wars.

Rémi: Model yourself after Han Solo, do you? A bit of a rogue, not too good with the rules…

Alyssa: [raises eyebrow] That’s why you’re here, Yoda.

KC: What’s your favorite band?

Rémi: Jasper

Alyssa: What, not Wham!?

Rémi: [singing] Wake me up before you go go, don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo…

Alyssa: [slaps hands over her ears] Please God, make it stop!

KC: What’s your partner’s best quality?

Rémi: She’s willing to make tough decisions and judgment calls that would have me in knots.

Alyssa: Come on, Rémi, you do that too. The difference is that you look before you leap, which isn’t a bad thing. We balance each other out.

KC: What’s your partner’s worst quality?

Rémi: She always wants to play “cops and robbers”… and she *always* has to be the cop!!! Like I told her, *I’m* the one with the big gun!

Alyssa: [laughs] Yeah. But I look better in uniform.

Rémi: I concede. You do.

Alyssa: As for his worst quality, I’ll have to go with his exuberant and exhaustive love of the 80’s.

Rémi: [starts singing a medley of Vanilla Ice and Wham! songs]

KC: What do you like most about me, as the author?

Rémi: I’ll be eternally grateful for the scene by the river. [grins]

Alyssa: And I’m grateful for the one in the bathtub!

KC: Alyssa, did you ever buy that shower massage?

Alyssa: I moved in with him to get it! [laughs]

The Best of RG2E Ereading Wishes — D. D. Scott, RG2E Founder

RG2E Featured Author Kristine Cayne takes us on her journey to write a Romantic Suspense

Welcome to The RG2E, Featured Author Kristine Cayne!

Take it away, Kristine…

Thank you, DeeDee! I’m thrilled to be back at the RG2E today, doing what I love most—talking about books. More specifically, I want to share with the RG2E readers why I write romantic suspense.

This is a genre that, for years, has been deemed “dead” by the traditional publishing industry. However, a quick search on Amazon.com shows that there are over 12,000 books in the romantic suspense category by such leading authors as Lisa Jackson, Karen Robards, Nora Roberts, Cherry Adair, Cindy Gerard, Shayla Black, Nicholas Sparks, Maya Banks, Lisa Renee Jones, Gemma Halliday, and the list goes on and on. I wonder: do all these authors know they are writing in a “dead” genre?  J

Romantic suspense is far from six-feet under. In fact, it is on the rise. And honestly, that doesn’t surprise me. Where else can you find finger-gripping suspense and quiver-inducing romance all in one story, one book?

So what exactly is romantic suspense?

Let’s break it down. Romantic suspense is above all romance. The hero and heroine must overcome challenges, both external and internal, to find happiness with each other.

Romantic suspense is the first cousin of the thriller. Tension increases as the story unfolds. The hero and heroine face increasing levels of danger, and its consequences, as the villain gets closer to achieving his or her own goal.

The sub-genre is vast, and while it does include some great police procedurals, many authors are now focusing on military heroes or even (mostly) ordinary people dealing with extreme circumstances. Sometimes, the suspense storylines are really more “adventure” or “thriller.”

Weaving suspense and romance

The successful romantic suspense author weaves the suspense and the romance threads in such a way that neither can exist without the other. The suspense propels the romance and the romance propels the suspense. The danger element brings the hero and heroine together. But as the romantic relationship develops, the stakes rise and the increased danger threatens to tear the hero and heroine apart. This deadlock situation creates tension for the characters and, more importantly, for you, the readers.

We love to torture our heroes and heroines

It’s not enough, though, for the romantic suspense author to torture their characters with a raging villain dead set on killing them. Oh, no. We also need to torture our heroes and heroines with their own twisted secrets, extreme passions, and deadly desires. They need to overcome their own pasts, fears, and failures if they are to have a chance at a future together.

What could be more satisfying than a story about a hero and heroine who defeat evil and find true love?

Challenges of writing romantic suspense

One of the big challenges of writing romantic suspense is that everyone comes to it with a different expectation of the ratio between the romance and the suspense. Some readers want an equal balance, while others want more emphasis on the suspense or more emphasis on the romance.  Worse, everyone has a different opinion on what constitutes “more.”

I love to hear from readers. So, here is my question to you: what do you consider the ideal ratio of romance to suspense?

Deadly Obsession is the first book in my Deadly Vices romantic suspense series. It has spine-tingling suspense combined with a very hot romance.

Here’s the blurb.

When an Oscar-winning movie star meets a department-store photographer…

Movie star Nic Lamoureux appears to have a playboy’s perfect life. But it’s a part he plays, an act designed to conceal a dark secret he carries on his shoulders. His empty days and nights are a meaningless blur until he meets the woman who fulfills all his dreams. She and her son are the family he’s always wanted—if she can forgive a horrible mistake from his past.

A Hollywood dream…

Lauren James, a widowed single mother, earns barely enough money to support herself and her son. When she wins a photography contest and meets Nic, the man who stars in all her fantasies, her dreams, both professional and personal, are on the verge of becoming real. The attraction between Lauren and Nic is instant—and mutual. Their chemistry burns out of control during a photo shoot that could put Lauren on the fast track to a lucrative career.

Becomes a Hollywood nightmare

But an ill-advised kiss makes front-page news, and the lurid headlines threaten everything Nic and Lauren have hoped for. Before they know what’s happening, their relationship is further rocked by an obsessed and cunning stalker who’ll stop at nothing—not even murder—to have Nic to herself. When Nic falls for Lauren, the stalker zeroes in on her as the competition.

And the competition must be eliminated.

*** On sale for 99 cents for a limited time only. Regular price $3.99 ***

RT Book Reviews Top Pick – “Stock up on ice cubes because this is definitely one sizzling debut. Readers will be hooked from the first sentence—on the book and on Nic! As rich as a white chocolate cheesecake, Cayne’s entrance into the suspense genre is invigorating, explosive and simply intoxicating.”

What Inspires Me to Write?

By Kristine Cayne

“Twisted secrets, extreme passions, and deadly desires”

People often ask me where my ideas come from, what makes a storyline click for me. As my tagline above says, I’m intrigued by the secrets people keep, by the passions that push them to points beyond their limits, and especially by the needs and desires that become the driving force in their lives. In some cases, it is my hero or heroine who will embody some of these aspects, and sometimes it is my villains or antagonists.

It’s often said that a good villain is one who believes he or she is the hero/heroine of the story. For this to be true, the villain must have a strong reason for why they are the way they are, a convincing argument for why they do the things they do. Their passions must be well-developed and relatable, or they will seem one-dimensional. I truly believe this, and I do my best to create villains who are as well-rounded as their hero/heroine counterparts.

In Deadly Obsession, my villain is a stalker. This offered me a fabulous opportunity to delve into the psychology and behaviors of stalking. The villain develops a love obsession (extreme passions) for the hero, Nic Lamoureux, and will do anything to have him return that love (deadly desires). This anything begins small and eventually devolves into murder.

On Amazon , B&N Nook and Smashwords

In Deadly Addiction, my villain is a radical extremist, a native man who will do anything (deadly desires) to obtain sovereignty for his people. While his goals are noble, his methods are not. When the hero and heroine get in his way while trying to realize their own dreams, his methods turn deadly. There is no limit to how far he’ll go, what he’ll do. Obtaining his goal is all that matters (extreme passions).

On Amazon , B&N Nook and Smashwords

But what about the twisted secrets? No worries. I’ve got those covered, too. In Deadly Obsession, the hero, Nic Lamoureux, has a secret from his adolescence that he’s kept from virtually everyone. In fact, he changes his whole life and keeps a distance from those he loves to ensure his secret stays hidden. The heroine, Lauren James, has her own secrets forged of anger and guilt for which she’s developed her own self-punishment.

In Deadly Addiction, the hero, Rémi Whitedeer, is the villain’s half-white cousin. Rémi keeps secrets from the heroine regarding his past. He also hides the truth about the impacts his relationship with her will have on his future. The heroine, Alyssa Morgan, has secrets regarding her past assignments that she keeps from the hero, until those secrets surface and she can no longer hide them.

“Twisted secrets, extreme passions, and deadly desires”—is it any wonder I write romantic suspense?

Morgan Elswich is trapped.  Tied to a place where he does not belong, unable to access the magical abilities he is destined to have — this not the life he should be living.  He knows that his true life is about to begin. he is only waiting for the word, the merest hint, that it is time to charge forward and start living.  He is ready.

Adriana Hayden is just barely living.  She was born to paint the natural world with a passion and vision unknown in her time but is fenced in by the conventions and morals of 19th century English society.  Forced to conform to society’s rules by her domineering guardian, she is trapped.

Brought together by the forces of nature, their love fanned by the winds of fate.  The only way to fulfill their destinies is for each to unlock the powers of the other — through the magical tempest of their love.

When an Oscar-winning movie star meets a department-store photographer…

Movie star Nic Lamoureux appears to have a playboy’s perfect life. But it’s a part he plays, an act designed to conceal a dark secret he carries on his shoulders. His empty days and nights are a meaningless blur until he meets the woman who fulfills all his dreams. She and her son are the family he’s always wanted—if she can forgive a horrible mistake from his past.

A Hollywood dream…

Lauren James, a widowed single mother, earns barely enough money to support herself and her son. When she wins a photography contest and meets Nic, the man who stars in all her fantasies, her dreams, both professional and personal, are on the verge of becoming real. The attraction between Lauren and Nic is instant—and mutual. Their chemistry burns out of control during a photo shoot that could put Lauren on the fast track to a lucrative career.

Becomes a Hollywood nightmare

But an ill-advised kiss makes front-page news, and the lurid headlines threaten everything Nic and Lauren have hoped for. Before they know what’s happening, their relationship is further rocked by an obsessed and cunning stalker who’ll stop at nothing—not even murder—to have Nic to herself. When Nic falls for Lauren, the stalker zeroes in on her as the competition.

And the competition must be eliminated.
