Gray’s Promise (A King Security Novel Book 2)

Genre: Steamy Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A jealousy that destroys everything in its path…a love that refuses to die.
Zoey Morgan seems to have it all as a successful surgeon in Boston. However, perfection lies only on the surface. Plagued by nightmares and amnesia from a tragedy that ripped her family from her fourteen years ago, she finds the courage to reach out to the only man who can make her feel safe. She’s buried the memory of their love, but her heart—and her body—responds to the ex-marine in ways that are all too familiar.
Grayson “Gray” Walker’s heart shattered when Zoey chose another man over him. Since then, he’s built an impenetrable wall around his emotions. But from the moment she implodes back into his life, her vulnerability breaches his defenses. His skills as an elite member of the King Security team cannot shield him from the devastation of learning he might have left Zoey high and dry when she needed him most. Now, Gray must navigate the tripwire of helping her heal while protecting himself from being hurt again.
As the embers of their potent love reignite, an old threat awakens, leading to greater danger than ever before.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
For now, I’m focused on Steamy Romantic Suspense because I want to put all my energy and time into delivering stories about the characters that inhabit my King Security Series.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I’m lucky. The ideas for my stories come to me when I’m walking on the beach, hanging around the pool, or even daydreaming in bed. Also, reading a book or watching a movie or TV can trigger an idea. What I have learned is to not waste any time when the muse hits because as quickly as it comes it can go. So I always have a notepad and pen with me, and if not, I use my Note App on my iphone.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Staying true to my characters. I want them to be alive for my readers and for that to happen, I have to do tons of work on character development. The good thing is, I’m a psychology nut, so I get high on fleshing out the intricacies of what makes my characters tick. I dig deep into their motives and try to analyze their actions from their own worldview. I do my best not to bring my own perspective into contention because I don’t want it to distort how a character reacts to any given situation or person.
When did you write your first book?…
2015 to 2016. It was published in November 2016.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Black…and purple.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton
Ocean or mountains? Oceans
City life or country life? Country Life (or preferably Beach Life!)
Party life or evening at home? Somewhere in between. LOL!
Dogs or cats? Definitely dogs.

Megan Jane Colville shares Aussie Animals #Koala @meganjanewrites #RLFblog #Romance #Anthology Megan Jane Colville, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please share your insight about animals in Australia.

Native Animals That Won’t Kill You Down Under

Megan Jane Colville
Australia has a vast variety of native animals, and yes, it’s true we have many that can kill you, but encounters with them aren’t common. Don’t be put off by the venomous and scary variety; Australia has some of the most unique and gorgeous native wildlife that won’t kill you. Here are eight of my favourites:
Koala
Koalas are the quintessential Australian symbol. Contrary to many people’s belief koalas are not bears but marsupials. They eat eucalyptus leaves exclusively and like to spend their time living in these trees. With their big fluffy ears and their 18-22 hour a day sleeping habit, they are the ultimate in cuddly. Don’t let their fur fool you though; their claws are definitely not to be messed with and they should never be approached in the wild. That being said, koalas aren’t the easiest to spot in the wild and are often only noticeable as grey bumps against the pale bark of their gum tree homes.
Kangaroos and wallabies
Kangaroos and wallabies give koalas a run for their money as the most recognisable native Australian animal. Also marsupials, they fall into the macropod family. Kangaroos are identifiable by their large size, long tails and red or grey colour, whereas, wallabies are smaller in size and tend to have darker fur.
While kangaroos can be seen lazing in any available shade in the open plains of outback Australia, it’s the wallaby that is more commonly seen closer to towns and often in the backyards of everyday Aussies.
Galah
The galah – our romantics – is a distinctive type of Australian cockatoo (or parrot) identifiable by their rose-pink coloured chest, lighter head, grey wings and markings. Female galahs can be distinguished from their male counterparts by their lighter coloured eyes. Galahs are known to bond for life, raise their young together and only re-partner upon the death of their mate. Galahs congregate in flocks and are a frequent seen throughout Australia. They make an impressive sight foraging in grass and roosting on branches. They aren’t the most intelligent birds, and they make a highly raucous noise, especially when flying overhead.
Echidna and platypus
The echidna and platypus are monotremes, the only two mammals in the world that lay their own eggs rather than giving birth to live young. Unique, they are rarely sighted in the wild and it is a privilege if you see them in their natural habitat. Similar to a hedgehog, the echidna is covered in spines with stout little legs and an elongated snout they use to eat ants. While their spines make them look quite formidable they are shy animals and are known to curl into a tight ball when threatened.
The platypus is a land and water based animal with a streamlined body, a bill like a duck and tail like a beaver. Platypus have unique electro-receptors in their bills they use to detect the muscular contractions of their prey. Female platypus create long burrows to lay their eggs and then curl their body around the eggs to keep them warm until they hatch. For some extraordinary video footage of a platypus in the wild check out this video: https://vimeo.com/106131061
Quokka
Often described as the happiest animal in the world, the quokka is a smaller relative of the kangaroo in the macropod family. Around the size of a domestic cat, the quokka is primarily found on small islands off the coast of western Australia. Quokkas live in dense vegetation, forage for plants and doze during the day. They have little fear of humans and a quick Internet search will show some pretty awesome selfies taken with these happy little creatures.
Wombat
Wombats are marsupials that can grow upwards of 40 inches long with short stubby legs. They have incredible strength and large claws they use to create intricate burrow systems. They are unique to other marsupials by their backward facing pouch, which prevents dirt filling their pouch while burrowing. They are slow moving animals and can occasionally be seen waddling across plains.

Rachael Howlett Queen of the Dessert @that_rachael #RLFblog #Contemporary #Romance #AnthologyRachael Howlett, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please share your goodies with our readers.

Sweet Degustation

By Rachael Howlett
I’m no Queen of the Desert, but with my royal sweet tooth, I’m a Queen of the Dessert.
The term ‘dessert’ applies to many sweet foods such as biscuit, cake, ice cream, pie, and pudding; the common factor being they’re traditionally served at the end of a meal. But, who said a dessert can’t be first, second or all your meal? No one!
I’ve had a life-long love affair with these five iconic Australian desserts:
First course
Ask an Australian to name their favourite biscuit and 99.8% of the time it’s the Tim Tam. This delicious chocolate-coated biscuit is such a culinary icon that it’s hard to believe Tim Tams only arrived on Australian shelves in 1964. And what’s not to love about a layer of smooth cream sandwiched between two biscuits? Don’t believe me? Look how fast Hugh Jackman convinced Oprah.
In that clip, Nicole Kidman mentions the Tim Tam Slam. This is one of the BEST things about eating these biscuits.
Bite off opposite corners of the Tim Tam and submerge one end in a hot drink (usually coffee or tea).
Think of the chocolate biscuit as a straw and use it to suck up the liquid.
With the interior biscuit softened and the outer coating melting, the trick to becoming a Slam Master is eating the Tim Tam before it explodes into your cup.
Second courseRachael Howlett Queen of the Dessert @that_rachael #RLFblog #Contemporary #Romance #Anthology
Like a Berliner but only better, the Hot Jam Doughnut is a delicious deep, fried crispy doughnut—fluffy inside with oozing thick strawberry jam. Dusted with sugar and usually served in a white paper bag, this doughnut should be eaten hot and fresh, and straight from a hot jam doughnut van.
One of the most famous places in Melbourne to eat a doughnut is at the Queen Victoria Market, where the American Doughnut Kitchen has been operating since the 1950s. Although, the popularity of this hot jammy dessert means you can find a van at most outdoors events. Look for the queues of people standing around with a bag of steaming doughnuts warming their hands.
Top tip—always check your face after you finish. It’s likely you’ll need to wipe sugar off the tip of nose after diving face-first into the bag.
Third course
No one really knows exactly how the Lamington came about other than its link to Lord Lamington, a Governor of Queensland in the late 19th century. However, its place in the hearts and mouths of Australians is firmly ingrained through ‘Lamington drives’—where schools and charity groups fundraise by selling lamingtons by the half dozen.
Traditionally, a Lamington consists of sponge cake squares dipped in chocolate and rolled in desiccated coconut (see this classic recipe from Margaret Fulton in Vogue Australia). Other variations include raspberry jam or cream spread in the middle.
Lamingtons are so well loved that we even have a day dedicated to celebrating cake. National Lamington Day is 21 July.
Fourth course
In Australia, we like to scream for a Golden Gaytime ice cream. Think toffee and vanilla flavoured ice cream, dipped in chocolate and then coated in crushed biscuits. Modern versions include a Sanga (or ‘sandwich’), Pina Colada and the Unicorn.
But maybe you’d like a Golden Gaytime doughnut, fried bao or even a burger? Restaurants and cafes have developed their own twist on the classic.
I’ve taken one for the team trying the house-made Gaytime at the Ripponlea Food and Wine Store.
Whichever way you eat it, follow Street’s slogan and eat one with a friend because It’s hard to have a Gaytime on your own.
Rachael Howlett Queen of the Dessert @that_rachael #RLFblog #Contemporary #Romance #AnthologyFifth course
Named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova who toured in the late 1920s, this quintessential Australian dessert isn’t without its controversy—chiefly that our neighbours across the sea (New Zealand) also claim to have invented this dish.
But in the spirit of sharing (as we have with the success of Crowded House, Jane Campion and Russell Crowe), the Pavlova is an Australasian dessert made from a base layer of meringue, followed by generous amounts of cream, and topped with seasonal fruit (mostly a mix of berries, passionfruit and kiwi fruit).
Summer parties never seem to start until someone brings out a Pav.

Tanya Kean, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! I’ll turn the blog over to you for the day.

Romance, Aussie Style, by Tanya Kean

When you think of romance do you think of hunky men with ripped abs, sexy smiles and come-to-bed eyes? I know I do. And when I think of Aussie heartthrobs, Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Heath Ledger, and Sam Worthington immediately come to mind. The quintessential Aussie romantic hero. The bronzed, blue-eyed, athletic, surfer boy next door.

Keeping it Real

There’s a fine line between cheesy and romantic. Aussie guys get this and are the masters of understated romantic gestures, bordering on non-existent. You would never see an Aussie guy jumping on a couch declaring his undying love for you. If he did, you would question his sanity and run a mile in the other direction.
Australian men don’t give a damn about what they’re supposed to do when it comes to showing their love. They’re more than happy to surprise you with flowers, but not on Valentine’s Day (too cliché), and will murmur sweet heartfelt words of love in your ear (during the game’s half time break). Sure, Aussie blokes might lack some airs and graces, but at least women always know where they stand.
Australian men are friendly and open, no matter whose company they’re in. They will strike up a conversation with just about anyone, whether it’s a stranger on the street or a major celebrity. They have a low tolerance for pomposity.
If a woman is fun loving, chilled and genuine that’s pretty much all that matters. Aussie guys are adventurous by nature. They also tend to have a relaxed sense of humor, which makes them exciting, as well as fun to be around. They love to laugh and don’t tend to take life’s hardships too seriously; they simply enjoy life.

So, does the stereotype really exist?

Of course it does. Those blue eyed, buff, hotties are everywhere. Beaches, offices, pubs and bars. Australian women might love a French accent, or an Italian fawning over them, but when it comes to settling down with the man of your dreams give me an honest, down-to-earth man every time. Those men won’t be more into themselves than you, they will treat you like the princess you deserve to be, and, they are super-hot as well.
How romantic, and I have the evidence to prove it. This image is of my wedding day December 1995. Yes, that is my very own crazy, fun-loving Aussie husband dressed as a panda!

Let’s meet Pietas from Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire, a science fiction romance by Kayelle Allen. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire

When the immortal Pietas is marooned on a barren world with no food and few survival tools, he knows it could be worse. He could be alone. But that’s the problem. He’s not.

Half a million of his people sleep in cryostasis, trapped inside their pods and it’s up to Pietas to free them. He can’t release one at a time. It’s all or nothing. He’s facing over five hundred thousand hungry, thirsty, homeless immortals will call on him for rescue and he has no way to answer.

It’s not all bad. The beautiful telepathic warrior he’s loved for lifetimes is at his side. He’s bonded with a sentient panther. He hates humans but the one dumped on this planet with him has become a trusted friend.

Before Pietas can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, he must take back command from a ruthless enemy he’s fought for centuries. His brutal, merciless father.

Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever…

Genre science fiction with romantic elements, sci fi

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13 (for violence) No explicit content or profanity

Introducing Pietas

Please tell me about yourself.

I’m what’s commonly called an Ultra. My race is genetically enhanced, created to serve mankind. To ensure we could fight their enemies, they made us “ultra” strong, invincible, unkillable. Without meaning to, they made us immortal. They also created us with the inability to gain our own freedom. My father accidentally discovered how to break those genetic shackles. Once we were free, mankind no longer told us what to do. We told mankind. It’s the only thing about my father that I can honestly say I’m proud of. I imagine I’ve told you far more about “me” than you wanted to hear. I’ll stop now.

Age: at the time of this story, 1,916

Gender: male

Birthplace: Earth, in a small country called Wales

Profession: king

Ethnicity: I’m what you’d consider white. My people come in many colors, but we are all Ultras.

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Ultra

What do you look like?

Physically, I’m 7 Terran feet tall, platinum blond hair, teal blue eyes (an illusion – they are actually quite startlingly blue with green flecks). I’m built more like a swimmer or dancer than a warrior, although I have all the strength of one.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Currently, her name is Joss.

Please tell us about your education.

I have an eidetic memory. I forget literally nothing, although I like to tease my sister by pretending to forget things she tells me. I’m a scientist as well as warrior. Not unusual among my people. I am a geneticist and credited with the creation of many races of non-humans.

Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?

I imagine all those would describe me. When one is immortal, one tends to pick things up.

On what special skills do you rely?

In addition to physical strength, I have multiple Ultra gifts, chief among them the ability to cast confusion, disarray, and fear. It’s called Chaos. I’m a master. So much so, my people refer to me as the Bringer of Chaos.

What is your family like?

How long do you have? I’ll shorten this. My father is a monster who deserves the worst possible perma-death. My mother– *pauses* I’m sorry. I can’t speak of her without emotion. She deserves far better than my father. I have a twin sister who is the bane of my existence. We look and act nothing alike.

What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?

I put others ahead of myself. It’s what a king should do. I worry that I take too much for myself and look selfish. I strive to avoid that.

What is your biggest personal flaw?

Hubris. I tend to think I have situations completely in hand. Often, it turns out I was overthinking my ability and reach. That can be a fatal flaw in a king.

When there is a setback, what doubt or flaw surfaces?

I internalize and think failure is my fault. I guard against self doubt, because that, too, can be fatal flaw in a king. Which then leads to hubris. It’s a frustrating cycle I continually guard against. I hope I’m moderately successful.

What is your breaking point?

If I ever reach it, I’ll let you know.

When (if) you lie or are upset, what gives you away?

I told one lie in my life. I was a child and had omitted a duty because I did things out of order. I hadn’t intended to skip doing it. When my father questioned me, I knew what would happen to me if I hadn’t done it. I feared being punished. He was never gentle with me. I lied. He didn’t catch me, but the feeling of dread that he would discover my untruth kept my heart, mind, and stomach in turmoil. I swore I’d never lie again. Punishment would have been over and done with if I’d told the truth. I decided no consequences would ever frighten me into lying again, and they have not.

Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?

At this point, I’d say it’s my friend, Six. He’s human. Or he was. He was turned into an Ultra by artificial means, giving him the strength (at least temporarily) to kill one of us. His type of soldier is called a ghost, because he had to die before he was transformed. Despite the fact that he was my sworn enemy, there is no one closer to me. If he were to betray me… I cannot speak further about that. It would be the worst thing to happen. For me.

What would you like to tell your writer?

I’m glad I decided to trust you and tell you my story. Now get busy and write the rest.

What would you like people who hear your story to know?

I am real. Kayelle Allen writes about me and publishes it as fiction. I’m not in your dimension, but I am real. Never doubt that for a moment.

She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it’s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories.

From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things.

No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She’s been married so long she’s tenured.

An Uncommon Love

MJ Schiller
Princess Adriana had her life all figured out…
Or, to be more precise, she had her life all figured out for her. Before she was even born she was betrothed to Garin, and that was perfectly acceptable as he became her childhood friend, and then, eventually, the person she would swap kisses with inside the palace gardens. She never questioned it, never had a reason to, until the day a commoner was brought before her father, the King, to be punished.
…until the day her eyes conncected with blacksmith Seth Hobb’s across a stone courtyard.

But with everything against them, can an uncommon love like theirs survive?
Even then, can Adriana make Seth see her for herself and not as the princess he imagines? And if she does, will she ever be able to convince her father that, despite his objections over Seth being a commoner, there is nothing “common” about him at all?

Brock Mann isn’t there to serve as his wife’s plus-one.

And then Pia is taken.
Without knowing who or why she was targeted, Brock must race against the clock to find his wife before she’s killed.

Saving the girl and the galaxy just got personal.
