Return of Dancer of the Nile (The Gods of Egypt) by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #AncientWorldRomanceVeronica Scott, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Return of Dancer of the Nile (The Gods of Egypt) by Veronica Scott

Genre Ancient World Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13


Nima, formerly a tavern dancer in the land of the Nile, has settled into the leisurely life of her dreams as the pampered, beloved wife to a high ranking general who’s also a member of Pharaoh’s court. She’s sworn never to dance for anyone else but Kamin, the man she loves. All is fine until one day news arrives that her husband has been killed in a chariot accident while on a trip to a remote city on Pharaoh’s behalf.

But as a reward for their previous service to Egypt against a dangerous enemy, the gods had promised Nima and Kamin they’d die at the same moment…so if she still lives, so must he.

Why is the ruler of the city lying to Pharaoh about Kamin’s death? What is the woman covering up? And where is Kamin?

Time for Nima the elegant lady to vanish from Thebes and Nima the skilled dancer to make her way in disguise to the far distant province and fight for Kamin’s life. She’ll have to deal with angry gods, black magic, an enemy prince and a deadly ghost along the way.

Nima is the only one who can rescue her beloved from the dark fate planned for him by Egypt’s enemies…

Standalone sequel to Dancer of the Nile.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve always been fascinated by ancient Egypt and this is my tenth novel set there. I love the challenge of telling a good story, with the gods taking an active role in the events. Mixing romance and adventure with the details of life along the Nile thousands of years ago is a challenge I relish. I was excited to return to Nima the dancer and Kamin the soldier, who both first appeared in Dancer of the Nile and tell more of their ongoing story. This is a standalone book but there are mild spoilers for the first book. And I relish the opportunity to put all my historical research to work and create an environment where readers feel at home in ancient Egypt, but keeping it relatable to the modern audience.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Science fiction romance is my first love, filling my e-reader (and what I write primarily), but I also read paranormal, fantasy, urban fantasy, thrillers and Regency romance.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Going by what I reread the most, Judd Lauren in Nalini Singh’s Caressed by Ice. He was the template for all her lethal Arrow soldiers who fall in love and they’re my favorite characters in her Psy/Changeling series. She makes me feel like I want to be the woman to melt that ice! I’m also always impressed by Frederica in the Regency romance novel of the same name by Georgette Heyer.

What are you working on at the moment?

Currently I’m writing a holiday novella set in my fantasy romance world of Cladddare and having fun with it. After that I’ll be writing the next book in my scifi romance Badari Warriors series about genetically engineered soldiers of the far future.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In October the fourth annual Pets In Space® anthology releases and I have a full length scifi romance Star Cruise novel in the collection, all new. The fantasy holiday novella I mentioned should be out in November and hopefully the next Badari Warriors will be released in December. We’ll see how I do on that schedule!

Sweet Love, Bitter Fruit by Lyndell Williams @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #NewRelease #urbanromanceLyndell Williams, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Sweet Love, Bitter Fruit by Lyndell Williams

Genre romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

From Lyndell Williams, author of My Way to You, a new novel about keeping the flames of love and passion burning in a world determined to snuff them out.

Harlem lawyer Marcus Kent fights for justice while preserving a stable, passionate marriage with wife, Toni. Smart and confident, he has it all together—that is until his world turns upside down.

Not only is someone stalking his sister, but an intern at work is also getting too close for comfort.

On top of all of that, Toni’s renewed infertility obsession causes them to continually argue, adding more strain and cooling off their steamy union.

Struggling with insecurities and yearning to have a child, successful psychologist Toni Kent looks to her husband for support. Unfortunately, relentless distraction and stubbornness prevent Marcus from being there when she needs him the most and jeopardizes their happy home.

After multiple failed in vitro attempts, Toni is ready to try again, but Marcus is done. He doesn’t want another headache or more heartache. Will infertility tear this dream couple apart?

Why did you write this book?  

I am a huge proponent of using fiction as social commentary. Novels can reflect and influence society, and many readers seek to connect to realistic characters with problems and issues reflecting the human condition. I wrote Sweet Love, Bitter Fruit to highlight how strong love is not invincible. There are times and situations that will test the strongest bond. Toni and Marcus have it all—fabulous careers, awesome Harlem apartment and the respect of their family and community—but they have to endure the trials of infertility. They are usually simpatico, but when Toni wants to go through more in vitro treatments after agreeing to give up, it threatens their love.

What is your favorite genre to read?  

Romance, romance, and more romance. The genre offers the chance for authors to show the ways characters navigate and negotiate a foundational human emotion. Romance can be diverse, influenced by readers and the broader culture. It is truly a misunderstood genre that deserves more respect than it gets in the literary world. Love elements exist across genres, so romance is a foundational part of literature.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?  

I don’t have one.

What are you working on at the moment?  

I am finishing up Building on Broken Dreams, book three in the Brothers in Law series. Adam Kane is a European American Muslim convert. A native Bostonian from a wealthy family, he turned away from a life of luxury and privilege. He concentrates on living simply and his faith when he meets Maryam Avery, an African American Muslim woman and pursues her.

I am also writing three novellas for the Open to Love series. The three stories feature three Muslim women: Hafsah, Tarika and Rahma. Each of them struggles to allow love to enter their lives and keep it there.

What books will we see from you in coming months?  

I plan on releasing each novella in the Open to Love series over the coming months, after the release of Sweet Love Bitter Fruit. Then there is book three in the Brothers in Law series, Building on Broken Dreams.

Know the Hero from Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman #RLFblog #Postapocalyptic #fantasy #SciFiAngelica Clyman, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman

Genre Post-apocalyptic fantasy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings) R

The totality of a solar eclipse lasts only a few short minutes. That’s more than enough time for an apocalypse to erupt.
Almost eighteen years have passed since the Eclipse changed the Earth forever, and Sebastian Za’in rose from the chaos and seized control, imposing his order on the broken planet. In a world ruled by fear and superstition, where all gods have perished, there is no one who can stand up to Za’in, the man rumored to be one of the Nephilim—hybrid offspring of Angel and Man. In a few short months, another Eclipse will occur, and while there are those who expect a new natural disaster, Za’in has plans of his own.

Completely unaware of this global turmoil, Kayla Steelryn has spent most of her life in a quiet village, longing to uncover her hidden past. When she leaves her home in search of answers, she finds herself faced with the truth about her identity, forced to choose between the two men she loves, and thrust into a conflict where she alone has the power to stop an event more disastrous than the end of the world.


Know the Hero from Dominion of the Star

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Jeremy is usually found brooding somewhere beneath the stars, whether it’s up on a water tower or down in the wastelands, he usually has something heavy on his mind.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He can’t afford to be picky in a world ravaged by disaster, but he hates slimy things in jars.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

The darker the better, but after the Ruiners become clamped to his arms, shirts are no longer an option!

Does he know how to fix things?

Jeremy is better at breaking things, but he can get by with very little.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

What HASN’T gone badly? He was born under a bad sign and things have gone down from there, but he still can’t deny some of his problems are his own fault.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

Jeremy doesn’t really have experience with any kids other than Kit, and she is no ordinary little girl…

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s used to getting up early, so he’s not any more irritable than usual (thankfully)!

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

He prefers that people don’t know the truth about him, but it’s been hard to escape. When he first met Kayla, she was blissfully unaware of his darkness and that drew him to her.

Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?

Jeremy’s not afraid to get his hands dirty!

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

The cross tattoo across his chest wasn’t his idea and he’d get rid of it if he could – but it was part of the deal if he wanted to become an Arch.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He prefers to rely on himself, so things were better when he had his motorcycle. Sharing that truck with the pirates was definitely a low point…

Recycle or toss?

Toss – his world’s so messed up already, he doesn’t think such a small gesture would make a difference.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
