Know the Hero from Apathy and Vigor by Faye Hall @FayeHall79 #RLFblog #Australian #historicalromanceFaye Hall, 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.

Apathy and Vigor by Faye Hall

Genre Australian Historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Will the love of a woman save him from his own apathy?
Tristen Brone lived a carefree life of wealth and passion – until one day it all came crashing down around him. In only a few days he lost everyone he loved in the world – his woman, his best friend and his parents. The once confident, handsome young man, was now scarred for life and on a quick downward spiral of sorrow and depression. He no longer wanted to live.
When Amalie Fergus arrives on his doorstep, a travel bag in her hand, begging him to take her in, he becomes suspicious. Despite his passionate past with this woman, and the feelings he still had for her, all he could think of was how quickly she abandoned him after the fire that killed her brother and left Tristen physically scarred. So why had she come back into his life after all these months?
Amalie Fergus lost her brother in a fire, her lover had abandoned her upon finding her with child, and now her father had been poisoned, leaving their properties to be repossessed. She had nothing and no one left to turn to. In desperation, she found herself forced to work for a living, trying to do her best as a maid for any rich gentleman who would take her in. What she hadn’t expected was for one of those men to try and force carnal favours from her, or for her now to be on the run for his murder.
Running from the scene of the crime, fearful what was to become of her, Amalie finds herself colliding with a man from her past who offers to hide her from the police on one condition – she return to Tristen and steal some property papers from him.
Trapped by the man from her past, and now forced back into Tristen’s life, Amalie searches for who murdered her brother. She could never have foreseen the cruelty she would discover, or the man she would willingly surrender her heart to.

His Midnight Sun by Viviana MacKade

Genre Romantic suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Tormented, fierce, and broken, sculptor Aidan Murphy has judged himself guilty. He yearns for love but pushes everyone away. He longs for acceptance but has lost the key to open his heart. Until he meets Summer Williams. Beautiful and smart, Dr. Williams promises haven for a man who believes he deserves none. All he has to do is let her in and risk his heart and soul.
Summer’s managed to keep her inner light alive, even through tragedy. She’s created a new life for herself and her daughter in Crescent Creek with loving, caring and fun friends–well, except brooding, breathtaking Aidan. She’s used to keeping away from his type, though. All she has to do is ignore the pull of a man who’s turning up to be much more than snarls and storms. Will her compassion and medical instincts let her?
Love can heal a broken soul and shake up a timid heart. Or it can unleash devastation and a thirst for revenge.
Will Aidan and Summer survive the hurricane?
Release September 15, available for pre-sale.

Know the Hero from His Midnight Sun

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

For Contemporary Heroes:

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Aidan would go to his studio and work on some custom piece. He doesn’t care much for those, they don’t ‘speak’ to him, but he loves the act of sculpting and there’s always some deadline he wants to meet.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Boston Cream Doughnuts, a box of six, that he would wolf up in one go and drawn down with Irish Black tea. He swears the Irish tea tastes different than regular Breakfast tea. I tried both, and I think the difference is in his head but please, don’t tell him I said that much. We fought enough on the matter and frankly, I don’t care.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Jeans and T-shirt, the state of which goes from normal (for day-to-day life) to things so old and worn out they are slightly better than old rags (when he works).
Does he know how to fix things?
Yes. Now, whether or not he does fix them, it’s a different matter. If he likes it (truck, fishing gears, everything related to his work) sure, he’s on it. Boring stuff like a leaking faucet or a broken garbage disposal? Forget it. He’ll pay someone to do it.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
He’s great with kids, a fact that had left everyone, Aidan included, surprised. He’d play with the kid, entertain him or her.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
Aidan doesn’t do many mornings, he’s not one for routine. He’d sleep when tired, get up when he’s done. Now, with Summer and Chloe, he’s a little more civilized and follows the girl’s rhythms (unless he’s working on a piece). He’s… normal. Not really grumpy or anything. Well, not grumpiER than usual.
Can he use chopsticks?
Yes.
Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?
He does, black, but black tea is more his thing.
Beard or clean-shaven?
Five-o-clock shadow going on unshaved, which is different than having a beard. He simply shaves when he wants to.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
A tattoo over his heart, an Irish cross.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Personal vehicle.
Recycle or toss?
Toss.

Ethan Sutton came to the stunning revelation he’d fallen in love with his best friend, Sebastian Young.

But when they move into their own place at the start of their junior year, can Ethan keep his feelings from showing when they live so close together?
Sebastian Young had an epiphany about Ethan at the end of last year. He moved them into a loft he’d found over the summer allowing him to be closer to Ethan. As they settle into their lives in a new place with such close quarters, ex-girlfriends, nosy downstairs neighbors, and Sebastian’s own doubts could put their relationship in jeopardy before it even begins.

Know the Hero from Darik by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi #romance

Veronica Scott, 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.

Darik: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 4) by Veronica Scott

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13+
Nicolle James is far from her home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Her only hope might be a mysterious soldier she’d glimpsed outside the laboratory fence. She’d managed to sneak a few words of conversation with him when her captors weren’t watching but now the aliens were taking her inside the lab to begin the experiments.
Darik, a warrior of the genetically engineered Badari pack, is on a solo recon mission to check out a mysterious new lab high in the mountains. His orders are strict – do not engage. But when he has a chance meeting with the woman who might be his mate, he vows not to abandon her, orders or no orders.
Can he get inside an underground lab, find Nicolle and rescue her without getting captured himself? And when he learns the lab’s deadly secrets, can he get word to his pack about the new dangers?
Because the ruthless alien scientist running the experiments wants to get her hands on him too and will stop at nothing to achieve her goals.
This is the fourth book in a new scifi romance series and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Know the Hero from Darik: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel (Sectors New Allies Series Book 4)

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

For Sci Fi or Paranormal Heroes:

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Badari love card games so he probably plays some very complicated form of solitaire. Or makes sure his weapons are ready. Or he might run through some exercises.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Like all Badari, Darik is part predator so he enjoys meat, cooked on the rare side. He’ll also eat fish, fruits (Badari love tangy berries) and bread.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Darik and his packmates were trained as super soldiers so he generally likes to wear camouflage utility pants with useful pockets, a T shirt and an overshirt, plus boots.
Does he know how to fix things?
Each Badari warrior has his own specialties. Darik is more about mission planning than fixing tech and he can also pilot atmospheric craft like shuttles.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
In the book he tries to rescue Nicolle and that goes badly the first time, not for lack of planning on his part, but because of an unforeseen action the enemy took. Darik never gives up though – he’s always thinking ahead to the next move and looking for any possibility to set things right. He’s stubborn and optimistic.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Children are one of the most important things in the world to the Badari so he’s a natural with kids, like a friendly big brother. He likes to show them how to do things. Darik is very action oriented.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
He loves the morning – a fresh new day, new opportunities, chances for good things to happen…
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
He’s pretty unself conscious, because he knows he’s a tough guy, able to take care of himself and others if needed. The fact that he’s been genetically engineered like all his packmates is nobody’s business. The fact he’s a highly trained soldier and general badass should be enough.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
Badari are used to doing for themselves, having been prisoners in the alien labs for generations. He’ll let someone else handle a situation if they’re more well trained for it than he is. Someone else flew him to the site of his current mission, for example. He admits he doesn’t have the skills to hack computers so he doesn’t mind his Artificial Intelligence companion handling those tasks.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Darik, like all Badari, bears scars from mistreatment by the alien scientists, as well as from combat. No other marks or personal adornment, although now that his pack has met humans, that could change. Mated Badari do have a mark on the back of their shoulders signifying that state but the marking occurs as part of claiming and being claimed by their true mate. Badari believe the mark is a gift from their goddess, signifying the lifelong bond.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
No one on the planet has a personal vehicle and there’s no public transport either. Darik will either fly himself on a mission or if a pilot has been assigned by the Alpha, he’ll take the passenger role.
Recycle or toss?
Darik and the other Badari were engineered using animal DNA as part of their makeup, so they feel very close to nature and are all about preserving their planet. So he and the others definitely recycle where possible.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Know the Hero from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen #RLFblog #SciFi #Romance Kayelle Allen, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. We’re excited to find out more about your hero, but first, tell us about the book.

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen

Genre Science fiction romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure is a fast-paced scifi romance with an adorable, fun-loving hero who’s half-human and half-cat and a by-the-book army captain heroine. Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device. Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss. He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Know the Hero from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure

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

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

He likes watching his favorite ruckball team, the Kelthian Killers. Ruckball is a mix of soccer, wrestling, and hockey. Points can be taken away for the wrong type of hold when wrestling for a ball, and parts of a professional field have lower gravity. It’s fun to watch.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Senth likes chocolate. He’d probably go for dark chocolate muffins or cookies with milk, but he also loves chocolate ice cream.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Casual, but he is quite comfortable in dressy clothes and can easily tie the most difficult formal tie in the empire, a Tyran knot.

Does he know how to fix things?

He’s good with his hands and he has experience taking things apart. As a young child, he exasperated his father by taking apart items and being unable to remember how to put them back together. His father often didn’t know either.

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

He stole money from a bigoted teenage bully and used it to buy chocolates and roses for a woman he wanted to impress. Let’s just say that stealing money to buy her a gift did not go over well at all.

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

He’s marvelous with kids and tutors younger students in the Thieves’ Guild. He is the mentor for a talented youngster whose skills are off the charts.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Adorably muddle-headed and bleary-eyed, but soon snaps out of it and is good to go.

Can he use chopsticks?

Yes, he can. They are a Tyran implement, and he’s not only familiar with their culture, he also speaks their language.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

He’s more of a hot chocolate kind of guy, but he’ll pretend-sip it if everyone else is having some. He’ll nurse that one cup all evening without ever drinking more than a spoonful.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He uses a device referred to as a mobile, which is like our smartphones on steroids. He has every app the Thieves’ Guild offers, plus ways to order food, hail a ride, or look up information. But all of his data is private and blocked because he uses the device in his work as a thief.

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

He doesn’t try to hide that he’s not fully human and when someone treats him with disrespect, he’ll start a fight so he can get close enough to pick their pocket.

Hide real self or be out in the open?

He is a HalfKin (half human and half feline humanoid) and he’s proud of it.

Let a worker handle it or do it himself?

He’d rather do it himself but has learned that doing it yourself can create unwanted attention. If it’s vital, he’ll do it himself.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Always clean-shaven.

Earrings/piercings or unadorned skin?

Unadorned.

Recycle or toss?

He reuses everything and only tosses what is completely useless.
