Meet Remy from The Mortal Vampire in the Mystic Desire Anthology by Suzanne Smith @Suzanneromance #RLFblog #Paranormal romance.Welcome Remy from The Mortal Vampire in Mystic Desire, a new Paranormal Romance Anthology by Suzanne Smith and others.

Introducing Remy

Age: Three hundred years and counting. He’s immortal

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Unknown, as he has amnesia. He was found bloodied and battered, barely alive in a California gold mine by his vampire maker Dr. Merlot.

Profession: None.

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Pure vampire.

Please provide a physical description of your character.

Well over 6′ tall, with flawlessly smooth, pale skin, wavy, jet black hair and dark, piercing eyes. Athletic build, pretty buff, for being a vampire and having only a liquid diet.

Please tell us a little about your character.

Remy is a bit cocky and conceited. He has no qualms about sucking the life out of humans, who he considers inferior, until he meets the innocent and beautiful mortal Angela.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?

Angela.

How does your hero dress?

Nice, but casual. Lived in jeans and silk jerseys, linen shirts. He doesn’t rely on his clothes to attract attention or make a statement. He is irresistible and he knows it.

What are the qualities of his voice?

Deep, rich, sexy. Saturated with testosterone. The kind of voice that hits you right in the groin area.

If you could only hear this character’s voice (but not see him) what characteristic would identify him?

Confident.

Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

He lives comfortably in a spacious condo on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. He could live in a mansion if he wanted to as he has made profitable investments in property in Chicago’s prestigious Gold Coast area and is in fact quite wealthy.

Does he have children?

As a vampire, he doesn’t have children, but he feels a strong affection for kids. He has never been able to bring himself to harm a child. Unfortunately, everyone else is fair game.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

Honestly, blood. He’s hungry. But when he meets Angela, that turns to lust, then, the need for intimacy.

How does your character handle challenges?

Well, because he is such a powerful vampire, the only person in his circle that presents a physical challenge is his maker, Dr. Merlot. It pisses Remy off a little bit to know that Merlot could best him in a fight. But, he has the good sense to avoid going toe to toe with Merlot. He is also faced with the personal challenge of not being able to consummate his love for Angela, which he deals with by sheepishly running away when they are on the verge of making love. He only leaves to protect her but she doesn’t know that, so he comes off as a bit of a jerk.

Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most?

On an emotional level, the human he is in love with, Angela. On a physical level, his estranged vampire girlfriend Giselle.

Why?

He is afraid Angela might see him as unworthy or undeserving of love because of what he is. That wounds him deeply. Giselle has a jealous and vindictive nature and at one point in the story, she is much stronger than Remy.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

Frankly, who better to write about? I’m eternally young, smart, beautiful, powerful. But even with all that going for me, I’m still flawed, which adds an extra layer of interest.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

Yes. When all the dust settled we both found out who I really was.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about?

Maybe my maker, Dr. Merlot. Care to tell us why? Because anyone that has been around for over one thousand years has a story to tell.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?

My story is just beginning.

Tell us about The Mortal Vampire in Mystic Desire

Genre: Supernatural Romance
Book heat: R
Remy is far from your typical vampire, though he doesn’t know it until he meets the mortal Angela. Once their eyes lock, not only does he feel physical pain for the first time in his existence, but he also sees a vision of himself in another world, one that is both seductive and frightening. Because Angela’s influence is so strong, he begins to consider the possibility that perhaps she is more than human after all. He tries to convince himself that she is a witch, attempting to cast a spell on him. But he knows that this theory makes little sense because he is immune to what the witches call “glamouring”, seizing control of their unwitting victims mind. Still, as his attraction for Angela grows, he becomes weaker and weaker, until he is certain that true death is only hours away.
From witches and warlocks to ghosts, psychics and more, the Mystic Desire anthology by BVS has something for everyone.

Roal knows that Yanti is more than special and deserves only the best male in Wolvenglen. But Roal feels more comfortable with his books than actually telling her of his feeling.

A Witch in Time by Catherine Kean

Genre Time Travel Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Welcome to Cat’s Paw Cove, Florida—an enchanting seaside town and favorite tourist destination. But there’s something unusual about the locals, both human and feline. The popular Shipwreck Museum might just take you back in time, and the historic Sherwood House holds secrets, old and new.
Adopt a furever friend at the Cove Cat Café, treat yourself to a psychic reading at Eye of Newt metaphysical shop, pick up a special trinket from Black Cat Antiquities. And don’t be surprised if you find your heart in the magic of Cat’s Paw Cove.
In a violent storm in 1645, Colin Wilshire’s Barbados-bound ship is swept off course. He’s sure he and his pregnant bride are fated to drown when he’s tossed into the sea. He wakes in a strange land and is saved by a blue-haired angel.
Twenty-first-century witch and cat rescuer Luna Halpern has fallen for more than her share of unsuitable guys—including one with a long-distance fiancé, and another who was more interested in other dudes than in Luna. Finally, a safe, drama-free guy is interested in her, and she’s confident that she’ll muster up an attraction to him. When she stumbles upon a handsome, mysterious man who speaks oddly, seems not to know where he is, or even what century it is, her first instinct is to help him.
Certain he’s either stuck in a crazy dream or in limbo between life and death, Colin stays close to Luna. As his feelings for her grow, he’s forced to choose between his obligations in the past and his hopes for the future.

A Bride for Dalton by Caroline Clemmons @carolinclemmons #RLFblog #NewRelease #western historical romanceCaroline Clemmons, 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.

A Bride for Dalton by Caroline Clemmons

Genre Western historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Rebecca wants a husband but not the man her stepbrother/guardian insists she wed. To escape his threats she turns to a family friend for help. Reverend McClain suggests she enter a proxy marriage to his only living relative, a nephew who ranches in Montana. Out of options, she agrees. Until she arrives in Sweet Springs, she has no idea the telegram with instructions to her supposed groom has not been delivered. Where does that leave her?

Dalton is working with dangerous men to accomplish his goal. The last thing he needs at this time is a wife in the way. He is a gentleman and sees no other solution than to complete the vows. How is he going to keep her out of harm’s way while he completes this job?

Rebecca and Dalton embark on married life in unusual circumstances. Can love blossom in tumultuous times?

Why did you write this book?

I was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in this multi-author series, The Proxy Brides, by Christine Sterling Bortner, the series originator. This is my second in the series—the first was A Bride for Gideon. I’ve enjoyed writing this story I loved writing the premise of a bride who thinks she’s married a man. When she arrives, he has no idea what she’s talking about. What is she to do? What is he to do? I hope readers will want to learn what comes next!

What is your favorite genre to read?

Although I read many genres, my favorite stories are western historical mail-order brides. I also love reading Regencies but have never attempted to write one.

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

Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood. That book is a clever combination of English Victorian and American western historical.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m writing a Christmas story at the moment—even though we are experiencing near 100 degree F weather. I love Christmas, so getting into the mood is not difficult for me. In fact, Melody, Angel Creek Christmas Brides book 7, is already up for pre-order.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

In addition to a couple of Christmas stories this year, An Agent for Lydia in the Pinkerton Matchmaker series will be out January 10, followed by an energetic release schedule for 2020. Writing is bliss for me—even on difficult days, I’m doing a job I love.
