A Knight’s Vengeance (Knight’s Series Book 1) by Catherine Kean

Geoffrey de Lanceau will never believe his father was a traitor. Back from Crusade, Geoffrey has vowed to avenge his sire’s killing and reclaim the de Lanceau lands. When Geoffrey rescues a headstrong damsel from a near-accident and learns she’s the daughter of his enemy, Geoffrey knows just how he will exact his revenge.
Lady Elizabeth Brackendale dreamed of marrying for love, but is promised to a lecherous old baron. Then she is abducted and held for ransom by a scarred, tormented rogue. He’s the hero who saved her life. He’s also the knight who intends to slay her father.
Elizabeth is determined to escape and undermine Geoffrey’s plans for revenge, but the threads of deception sewn eighteen years ago bind the past and the present. When her father declares war, she’s torn between her loyalty to him and her feelings for Geoffrey. Only by Geoffrey and Elizabeth championing their forbidden love can the truth at last be revealed about a knight’s vengeance.

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author's Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1 by Laura Tolomei @LallaGatta #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanceLaura Tolomei, 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.

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1 by Laura Tolomei

Genre: Erotic, LGBT, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell finds himself alone for the very first time in his life, he cannot understand what has gone wrong. From his earliest years, he had been with at least one, if not both, of the two special people he had chosen and deeply loved. Christopher Templeton, his phase mate, and Ylianor Caldwell, his father’s heart child, have always been his reference points, the two fixed stars of his evolving destiny. His insane lust for both have further strengthened his bond to them during the apparently endless time they had already spent together. And yet…no matter how much he gets of them, it’s never enough. Not of Ylianor, his adored princess, born and raised in Black Rose, his own home. Certainly not of Chris, his beloved angel, met as a mere eight-year-old on the hills of the same Black Rose that had brought Ylianor to him. So why is he alone now?

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where The Heat, Book 6, leaves off and reconnects the princess to her amazing power. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

Why did you write this book?

Before I answer, you must be aware that this latest release of mine is a rivisitation of the first book of my most successful series, the Virtus Saga. This book was originally published as The Sex, but after 10 years from its release, I felt the need to rewrite it in my current style.

Yes, because when it was first written, I was just starting out as an author, so my style, plot construction and character building were…primitive at best :-)

This is also why the full title of this novel is Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut.

Now the story is much more fluid and the characters practically jump out at you—that’s how real they are!

To understand about Virtus Sex, you must first understand about the saga itself.

It’s an Erotic Dark Fantasy Paranormal Romance Series that Explores the Dark and Light Sides of Power and Love between Three People.

But it’s also the Making of a Trio: the Virtus Saga shows how power and love can be equally shared.

It’s comprised of 10 books in all that must be read in sequence, one after the other for the story to make sense. There are 3 amazing characters with super-powers. There’s 1 sinister pyramid, but 1,000 scorching MMF erotic scenes. Mostly, there’s 1 tense battle of good versus evil.

Now completed, this erotic dark fantasy series is continuing to receive critical acclaims. The concept of a world free of violence attracts readers. The fiery MM and MMF sex keeps them hooked to every page. Dripping passion and lust woven inside an imaginary frame ruled by magical powers, this saga is nothing more than the age-old battle of good versus evil only without the violence usually associated to such fierce struggles for survival.

The titles say it all:

The Sex

The Game

The Festival

The Leader

The Pledge

The Heat

The Princess

The Lord

Not In The Game, Deleted Scenes from The Game

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut (previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes)

The way it all starts and progresses, nothing is as it seems. Soul-mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled, until Duncan takes shelter in Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack. Ylianor has always loved Duncan, and while Duncan is attracted to her, she remains a servant—okay to bed, but not acceptable consort material. Unwilling to accept it, Ylianor vows she will do anything, even come head to head with his insufferable lover, to stay at his side.

But there is more going on than either of the three realize.

Lord Arthur Fairchild, Leader of the High Council, knows his planet Sendar is doomed unless the predestined Hero steps in and blocks the darkness threatening to take over. And even if one person alone fits the bill, Arthur does the unthinkable—not only does he summon the Hero, but the Hero’s consorts as well.

Sendar needs these three special people to become fully aware of their powers and learn how to use them together, working as one above and beyond their personal issues. They must become one whilst being three to make it through the difficult times ahead. If they do not, the Virtus which holds all of Sendar’s secret could destroy them all. And then how will their world survive?

About book 1, Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, this is the first installment, the book that starts the entire saga. As I said above, this new edition is so much richer than the original version. The characters are more vivid and three-dimensional. The plot is more linear and direct. The story is more detailed and articulate. The sex scenes are more torrid and satisfying. All in all, this new book 1 of the Virtus Saga gives readers a better grasp of the series and it’s a highly recommended starting point for all those interested in dark fantasy romance.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Mystery, crime, historical non-fiction. Interestingly enough, romance isn’t one of my favorites when it comes to reading, maybe because I prefer to imagine it on my own rather than have someone else tell me about it J

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

Sebastian Flyte from Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited is one of my favorite characters.

He’s so good-looking, rich, spoiled and self-destructive that it’s impossible not to like him. Just the way he is makes people fall under his spell, and none more than Charles Ryder do it with more passion or conviction. So much that Charles tries to save Sebastian from himself, a short-lived attempt given how uncaring Sebastian is about his fate.

That’s the charm of this character for me. He fascinates me, much as he did Charles, in spite of his shortcomings.

Or maybe because of his shortcomings.

The way Waugh portrays Sebastian, his vices open up a new world for Charles, a world he almost couldn’t imagine before his path crossed with Sebastian. And it changed his life.

Mine was also changed after meeting Sebastian Flyte. Not just because of him or of his relationship with Charles. Mostly because I learned that sometimes, when one is on the path of self-destruction, there can be no rescue no matter how much we love that person.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on Virtus Game, The Game: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 2. This is another rivisitation in the Virtus Saga, as I’m about to complete the rewriting of the second book in this series. Already, a part of this work has been released last year in Not In The Game, The Game: Deleted Scenes, Virtus Saga Plus, which contain many previously unreleased sex scenes. But Virtus Game has a broader sweep and will carry forward the story of my three heroes—Duncan Caldwell, Christopher Templeton and Ylianor Meyer—all the way to Duncan becoming the new Leader of the High Council.

Here is the blurb:

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Game but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell has to enter Cecilia Hurst’s Game of Masters and Slaves, he already knows he’ll have to play Master if he intends to retrieve the pyramid Cecilia stole from the sacred Nephis Valley. And his choice for a slave can only be Ylianor Meyer, however fiercely Lord Christopher Templeton resents her and her overpowering erotic intrusion in a trip that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone. No, make that in a love that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone! Then things precipitate into chaos and Duncan’s new responsibilities will inevitably change everything forever, their personal balance included.

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where Virtus Sex, Book 1, leaves off and explodes lust and leadership into estrangement and chaos. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Besides Virtus Game, other projects I’m working on are:

Becoming Zero, Slave For A Summer

A BDSM descent into sexual slavery for Misty Summers, a young woman with the right background but the wrong luck.

Leon’s Mark, ReScue Series Book 2

The spicy and romantic follow up to Re-Scue, where Leon Sterling and Sean Davis expand their relationship and explore their limits.

Aware-Ness, ReScue Series Book 3

From a duo to a trio, the third book in the series takes off with an on the road trip from Atlanta, GA, to San Francisco, CA. But things between Leon Sterling, Sean Davis and Janet Ramsey aren’t as smooth as they seem.

Where to buy Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1

When Prince Duncan Caldwell loses his way home and knocks on a stranger’s door, looking to find shelter, he doesn’t know his life is about to change forever. Not because he can’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful woman who opens that door, but more so because she’s a stranger yet he can’t shake the feeling she belongs to him. And discovering she’s been banned from his home can’t stop the vortex of his feelings nor the truth of his world from crashing down on him.

This is just the beginning of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book starts the love and the passion that entwines fiery sex into this intricate three-way relationship. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

Laura Tolomei lives in Rome, Italy, and is the author of 28+ books in her very particular and unique genre—Erotic Romance with an Edge. Novels on the edge of accepted conventions written in her breezy narrative style that hooks you from page one, such is her trademark, and she guarantees an erotic earthquake with each book!

On a more personal note, she has been traveling the globe since age five and has no intention of quitting. Having been an avid reader her entire life, she decided at age forty to write her own stories and is still enjoying every minute of it. A convinced vegetarian for over 10 years, she had to be more “elastic” in her eating habits due to health issues. Regardless, the world she has built for her renown Virtus Saga is strictly vegetarian, and no human living there would ever dare eat meat. She also loves cocktails, and her favorite one, Negroni, is featured prominently in her ReScue Series.
