Today, we get to meet Gracie Sutton, the daughter of one of the main characters in Liwen Y. Ho’s fantastic contribution to Fall Into Romance.


Chasing Romance

I so enjoyed Liwen’s story because it is different and a little off the beaten path. There’s Chase – the handsome rising music star, and Izzy Sutton (Gracie’s mother).

When pop sensation Chase Lockhart wants more than a room at Izzy Sutton’s Bed and Breakfast, she must decide whether it’s worth opening up her heart to him, especially when he’s eleven years her junior.


Gracie, currently a freshman in college and living away from home, share’s her perspective on Romance. (She’ll have her own story out next year!)

What’s your favorite place in Romance?

My favorite place in Romance has to be Interlude Inn, my mom’s Bed and Breakfast. I’m so proud of my mama and how much she’s accomplished. She opened it up all on her own. Well, she did have some help from Mr. Lock—oops, I shouldn’t spoil the story for you. I’ll just say that you should definitely come by our place if you’re ever in town, even if it’s just for some of my mama’s apple cake—it’s the best!

When someone says Romance to you, what comes to mind?

I think romance is everything hopeful and lovely and true. If you can’t tell, I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic. I know real life doesn’t always have a happy ending (my parents are a prime example of that), but I think it’s possible to meet the guy of your dreams. Why else would someone have named a town Romance unless romance does exist?

If you could choose anywhere to live, where would it be?

I’d love to live in California. I heard it hardly ever rains there and there’s so much good food. My friend, Brady, who lives in the same dorm as me is from Southern California. I don’t know why anyone would leave such perfect weather to come up to the dreary northwest. When I tease him about it, he says I’m all the sunshine he needs. He’s a nice guy.

What’s your favorite season?

I just love spring because of tulip season. My favorite tulips are the purple ones. Did you know they represent royalty? I’m no princess, but I’d like to think someday I’ll meet my Prince Charming.

What do you like best about living in Romance?

All the people are so friendly, especially our neighbor Mrs. Cooper.

What’s your favorite thing about the autumn season in Romance?

The Fall Festival of course! It’s like the biggest event in Romance. I’ve been going ever since I can remember. I’m so sad I have to miss it this year because of midterms, but I want to do well in my classes so I can make my mama proud. I really hope she’ll end up going without me; she’s been so lonely with me away at school.

What’s your favorite fall treat?

Pumpkin spice latte! A college kid’s gotta have caffeine to survive.

FIR meme 9

Today we get to meet two animal characters from Jessica L. Elliott’s story, Katie’s Chance for Romance.

Five years ago she pushed him out of her life, but she couldn’t force him from her heart.

Jess meme 1

Jessica’s story is so fun and really full of tender romance.

In addition to horses in the story, she also has two lovable dogs. We get to meet Roxette and Loverboy today!


Who is your favorite human in Romance?

Loverboy: That’s easy, Katie is the most awesomest human around. Sometimes she forgets that though and I have to remind her with lots of playtime and kisses.

Roxette: It’s a toss up between Mike and Uncle Earl. Mike is always calm which helps me feel safe. Uncle Earl acts tough, but he’s so not. Katie is wonderful and has a great heart, but can be a little too intense for me sometimes.


What’s your favorite thing to do?

Loverboy: Isn’t everyone’s favorite thing playing? I mean, really. Eating, playing, sleeping, that’s all you need in life, right?

Roxette: I like to follow the horses in the pasture. Katie doesn’t always let me, especially if she’s working with a new or skittish horse. She wants all of us to be safe and happy.

rox Loverboy

What’s the best thing about your new adopted family (or person)?

Roxette: Katie and her aunt and uncle were there for me when I was too scared to trust people much. They helped me see that life could be happy again. Uncle Earl really took me under his wing and I love him for it.

Loverboy: Aunt Viv makes the best doggie biscuits. And she sneaks them to us a lot more often when Katie isn’t around. Katie thinks we might get spoiled. Little does she know, we were spoiled when she brought us home!

What do you think about all the romance swirling around Romance?

Loverboy: I think it’s silly that the humans are surprised. What did they expect living in a town with that name?

Roxette: It’s wonderful! Instead of just having Katie and Viv and Earl, we get even more love from more people. Pretty sure Romance is the best place in the world to live.

FIR Meme 6

I’m part of a wonderful new boxed set of sweet contemporary romances that releases Oct. 5.
The stories all take place in the fictional town of Romance, Oregon (which he had so much creating). And all the stories mention the Finding Forever Animal Rescue. In fact, the autumn festival that is mentioned in each story is a benefit to help out Finding Forever and allow people to adopt a variety of pets.
I thought it would be fun between now and release day if you had the opportunity to meet some of those fun-loving animals!
Today, you get to meet Costello, a Great Dane in  Finding Forever in Romance by Melanie D. Snitker.


Brent’s hands are so full he doesn’t realize his heart is empty. But how can he convince Nicole to trust him and give them all a chance at the forever family they deserve?


Without further ado, let’s chat with Costello!

Great Dane Dog

Who is your favorite human in Romance?

That’s easy: Tony! He’s a good boy who comes to visit me at the Finding Forever Animal Rescue center. Every time I see him, I wag my tail fast so he knows how much I like him.

What’s your favorite thing to do?

Play! I love to catch balls, run after them, and chase my favorite boy.

What’s the best thing about Tony?

He always has time to see me. He talks to me and we eat lunch together. Sometimes he even sneaks me some of his lunch when his mom’s not looking.

What’s your favorite way to spend an afternoon?

Playing with Tony is the best. But when he’s not here, I join the other dogs to see who can bark the loudest. I don’t always win, but I like to give it my best each and every time.

What do you think about all the romance swirling around Romance?

I don’t really understand romance much, but I think it’s the main reason why Nicole keeps bringing Tony to volunteer at the shelter. Something tells me there’s a connection between her and Brent. I think it’s great, though. Brent saved my life and gives me a place to stay. And Nicole? She’s real nice. Plus: Tony! So if it means I get to play with him more, I’m all for the romance!


Thank you for joining us today, Costello. We’ll let you get back to chasing balls and playing with Tony!
