Know the Hero from Tiger's Last Chance by Christina Lynn Lambert@chris4lamb #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceChristina Lynn Lambert, 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 Tiger’s Last Chance.

Tiger’s Last Chance by Christina Lynn Lambert

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

While working a case, Sean Whitman is tortured for information, drugged, and bitten against his will by a shape shifter. The fallout leaves him jobless, friendless, and dumped by his girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, he leaves town and opens a private investigation business. Learning to live life sober isn’t easy, but he makes it to the two year mark.

When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him, accusing him of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, Sean can’t help but like the sound of her voice, despite her ridiculous accusations. He’s shocked when she calls him back with an apology then asks for his help as a consultant on a case. On the phone, her sweet, slightly Southern voice captivates him. In person, she’s unlike any other woman he’s encountered, and nearly impossible to resist. But could the sexy detective ever want a man like him?

After Nikki’s last dating disaster, the mountain lion shifter has sworn off men. Then she meets Sean, and with every second she spends around the tall, dark-eyed man, her resolve crumbles. But for some reason, despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sean seems determined to push her away.

An investigation into missing refugees leaves Nikki with more questions than answers. Her refusal to let the matter drop leads her to the discovery of a radical political group’s horrifying plot for dominance. Traitors are embedded within the very organizations meant to keep shifters safe. As the list of people she can trust dwindles, Nikki calls on Sean to help her unravel a web of deceit.

As Nikki and Sean fight for survival, his fear of losing her could become a reality. Will he get one last chance to show her he loves her?

Know the Hero from Tiger’s Last Chance

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

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

If he’s tired but not tired enough to sleep, he will sit in bed and read a book. He loves horror, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy. He might even write a poem or two. He doesn’t usually share his work with anyone but he enjoys writing. If he’s got a lot of restless energy, he’ll either listen to one of his favorite playlists while he hits the treadmill or his weight bench.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

His snack choice is meatball subs or hamburgers and fries. He’s not a fantastic cook but luckily he lives near plenty of great restaurants and sandwich shops.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Sean doesn’t like to dress up. He prefers t shirts, jeans, and running shoes.

Does he know how to fix things?

He can fix basic stuff around the house, for anything more complicated, duct tape will be involved.

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

A couple years ago, two guys broke into his house and started interrogating him about a case. When his girlfriend (now ex-girlfriend) came to the door, he tried to get her to leave quietly and quickly so he could keep her safe. So many things went wrong. The memory will always haunt him.

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

He doesn’t know a whole lot about kids, hasn’t been around them much, but he treats them with decency and never ever acts condescendingly towards kids. He figures they deserve the same basic rights as everyone else so he listens when they speak rather than dismissing them or trying to shut them up.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s not really a morning person. Extra strong coffee helps.

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

He doesn’t share much about himself, definitely not anything about being a shapeshifter. Lots of regular humans know about the existence of some of the stranger creatures in life, but many don’t, so he’s always careful about what he says.

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

When Sean’s private investigation business started gaining a fair amount of clients, he hired an assistant. Training Darnell forced Sean to learn to let go of the need to have control over every detail.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

He doesn’t have any tattoos. He hates needles. He does have a few scars but Nikki thinks he’s hot just the way he is.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He has to travel for different investigations so he drives a truck that has plenty of space for surveillance equipment and luggage.

Recycle or toss?

He always recycles. He loves spending time outside and doesn’t want to trash the environment.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. My stories include a fair amount of sarcasm, suspense, steam, and violence. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.

New paranormal book Arctic Bite by NJ Walters @njwaltersauthor #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #PNRNJ Walters, 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.

Arctic Bite by NJ Walters

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Being immortal doesn’t mean you can’t die. It just means you’re damn hard to kill.

When Alexei Medvedev joined the Forgotten Brotherhood–paranormals hired to assassinate other paranormals–he knew it wouldn’t be a cake walk. But his next target is one of Death’s own Reapers gone rogue. For the first time since he started this gig, “damn hard to kill” feels more like “damn near impossible.”

Tracking Cassie Dobbs brings him to a remote bar in small-town Alaska, where this hot-as-hell Reaper is casually serving drinks, as if she doesn’t have a bounty on her head from Death himself. Alexei is dangerously intrigued. Everyone in the Brotherhood knows the first rule: don’t fall for your target.

But Alexei soon has bigger problems to face than an unexpected attraction. They only send assassins after those who deserve to die…or so he’s been made to believe. Now that he’s met Cassie, though, he’s not so sure.

What if everything he’s been told is a lie, and the person he’s been sent to kill is the only one who knows the truth?

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?

I don’t dine out for dinner. I’m a morning person and I enjoy breakfast. Usually a couple of times a week I’ll take myself out to the local A&W for breakfast. I love it.

Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?

There are so many. How can I choose just one? One of my all-time favorites is Rhage from J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. How can you not love a vampire who can shift into a huge dragon who eats his enemies? And the way he loves his mate, Mary, is the stuff of legends.

Describe the perfect vacation.

I have two kinds of perfect vacations.

The first would be in a cabin by a beach (the rocky/beachcombing kind and not sandy) with a stack of books, a journal, and lots of great food, including plenty of chocolate.

The second is an “event” trip. I’ve done several and they’re so much fun. One included a day and night in Niagara Falls followed by three days in Toronto which included a hockey game, Bat Out of Hell the musical, and a day at the ROM (Royal Ontario Art Museum) to see the Guillermo del Toro exhibition. I also snuck in a trip to Kensington Market and a stop at Sweet Jesus ice cream.

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

Romance, of course. I love all genres. Depending on my mood I’ll read contemporary, historical, romantic suspense, or paranormal. If it’s nonfiction, it tends to be more in the spiritual/self-help genre.

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

It would have to be Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” since the heroine is an actual Reaper. Everyone else might fear Cassie, but not Alexei.

Stressing Matteo D'Cruz from Jungle Salvation by MA Jewell @MAJewell_author #RLFblog #PNR #RomanticSuspense #ShifterLet’s meet Matteo D’Cruz from Jungle Salvation, The Jaguar Queens Book II, a paranormal romantic suspense novel, by MA Jewell. 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 latest book.

Jungle Salvation, The Jaguar Queens Book II by MA Jewell

Genre: Paranormal romantic suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Jaguar shifter males lost in their cats are all animal, feral. Execution is the only course. Enforcer Matteo D’Cruz has terminated two and doesn’t care that he’s next–until Dakota.

Dragged back into the human world by well-meaning friends, jaguar shifter Matteo D’Cruz realizes he’s been in cat form for over seventy years. With another transformation, he could lose his tenuous hold on his humanity. In their world, the only end for a feral is execution. Damaged by grief and guilt, he doesn’t care overmuch. However, when he discovers an unmated latent female, he can’t resist her scintillating allure or his instinct to protect her at all costs.

Carefree Dakota Gorman travels to Brazil to rescue her sister. Determined to expose the drug lords who have manipulated her sibling into a hurried wedding, she’s certain the baffling hottie Matteo is one of them. After Dakota’s sister turns into a giant jaguar before her eyes, she must confront a new reality, one including latent family traits.

Matteo helps her trigger her first exhilarating metamorphosis into a jaguar, leaving no doubt about her genetics, but unknown shifter enemies cut short her joy.

A blackmailer sends Matteo a video of her transformation, demanding DNA samples. The extortionist threatens to post the recording to the internet and expose the shifters to the world. Dredging up courage that she didn’t know she possessed, Dakota joins Matteo and the other jag shifters to save her family–and her new species–from scientific experimentation.

Stressing Matteo D’Cruz

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

Please tell me about your hero.

Age: 133
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Brazilian Amazon Jungle,
Profession: Enforcer (Shifter code enforcement), Coffee
Ethnicity: Brazilian Culture; Mixed indigenous tribal and European appearance
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Jaguar Shifter

What does your hero look like?

After living as a jaguar in the Amazon for a few decades too long, Matteo has a unique appearance. Natural, tawny dreadlocks followed him into his six-foot plus human form, along with rich copper eyes and a V-shaped pattern of ochre rosettes down his back. When he’s enraged, he snarls, ensuring his adversary gets a glimpse of a great-cat canine.

Who is the significant other in his life?

Brilliant adrenalin junkie Dakota Gorman is bold, courageous, and protective of the weak and family, yet others see her as a carefree fashionista with an irresponsible streak. With two partially completed bachelors, and an abandoned medical degree to her credit, some even call her flighty. Discovering her true inner strength rocks Matteo to his core.

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.

Any shifter party is a danger zone. Jag males are solitary and territorial, and since the females died out over seventy years ago, most have never even seen an unmated queen. The discovery of the latent females in the United States invigorates the all-male clan with hope for the future. Now, however, their mixed gatherings are powder kegs with a flame licking at the fuse.

Matteo has two roles. As a guest, he would travel from table to table, exchanging arm clasps and man hugs with the older males and fist bumps with the young ones. However, no one at the party would mistake his congenial manner for relaxed.

How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?

Matteo had thought a gathering of mixed company a thing of the past. So when viewing a room filled with male and female jag shifters flirting and getting to know one another, a sense of awe and hope for the future often strikes him. Enough to make him clear his throat to cover the emotion.

Since he retains a keen jaguar sense of smell while in his human form, scents have an impact on him. Dakota’s alluring fragrance tortures him. Cat instinct to claim the formidable female often sends a shift’s heat racing over his skin. Seeking relief, he’ll rub at his nose, though it’s a wasted motion.

Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

Matteo always resists a desire to find a solitary table. Because he must keep the peace, he makes frequent stops to greet young males flirting with the fair-skinned latents.

 

If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?

With a high need for carbs in human form, Matteo prefers fruit juice, specifically acai juice. Few drugs have any effect on shifters, and alcohol’s taste doesn’t appeal, but he’d thought he might enjoy the fun buzz reported by humans.

How much drink is his usual?

After shifting from cat to human, a need for carbs is impossible to ignore. A pitcher of fruity juice is not out of the question. However, if pastry is near, he prefers coffee.

The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

As the Enforcer, Matteo will search any secluded areas regularly. In this particular party, the females don’t yet know they are cats and are uninformed about the risks of an accidental mating. Any male who takes advantage of a naïve queen will answer to the Enforcer.

Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?

Matteo has few close friends, and he values those males as brothers. These older males, the ancients, will coordinate security between them, following Matteo’s lead. No one “latches on” to him. He’s too intimidating to most jag males.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?

Any male who picks a fight with Matteo is likely driven by cat instinct rather than any logical thought. He’d employ a submission hold and pin the impaired male with a dominant glare until the shifter came to his senses.

Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

See above.

Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?

If Matteo manages security at the party, he would not concern himself with sensitivities or perceptions. However, in a truly social setting, he will leave as early as politely possible.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?

Those few with authority over Matteo must earn his respect, and even then, if their logic is flawed, he will push back.

How does the hero react to hearing a scream?

Having a naturally protective nature, he’d investigate.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?

Likely due to his roots in the previous century, and assuming the attacker is male, his initial reaction will depend on the victim’s gender. If male, Matteo wonders if the man deserves the beating. If female, he calculates how to intervene.

If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?

Regardless of the victim’s gender, he will stop the assault to determine the facts, and after he’s satisfied his curiosity, he’s not above allowing a deserved punishment to continue.

This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?

Having a military background, he views retreat as a strategy to win a war or to minimize casualties. That said if a shifter female is involved, all bets are off. No sacrifice is too high to save a single queen.

The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact in some way. What does he do?

He’d ignore the person with overt disdain, and if forced to interact, things will go poorly for any individual who has previously disappointed Matteo.

Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?

Despite his hardened nature, Matteo encourages young ones to challenge themselves, to become more than they are. He’d counsel the younger shifter in the moment, however, depending on the stakes; he’s also comfortable taking matters into his own hands.

The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?

He focuses on his main objective, the endgame goal. And if an enemy caused this pain, he plots his revenge.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“If you’d thought of any but yourself these last seventy years…”

What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?

Matteo endured decades of grief for a lost mate. He will spare Dakota that pain. (No more spoiler on that one lol)

What one thing would you like readers to know about your hero?

He’s an educated savage with a gentleman’s heart.

Mink Omega in Hiding by Jessica E Subject

Genre MPreg Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Roan is looking for a way out…
As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing, gang-ruled world I lived in. But, one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Someplace I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…
After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Will they find their way back to each other?
Then Roan shows up on my doorstep, soaking wet, and with no belongings. Of course, I take him in. But I don’t know how long I have until he leaves again. Can I trust him this time? Can I finally claim him as my mate? Or am I holding onto false hope? Because I know there is something he is keeping from me.

Know the Hero from Mink Omega in Hiding

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

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

Sleep. He runs his own business. If he’s not at work or doing paperwork at home, he’s most likely sleeping to prepare for another early morning.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He eats only clean, healthy foods, but when none of his clients are around, he will buy red bean cake from NJ Fresh Foods.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Moisture wiking or cotton clothes with running shoes for at the gym. And when he’s at home, he wears as little as possible.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, but he knows it’s faster to hire someone else.

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

He hired a new employee for his gym. Due to his high profile clients, he checked the employees social media and ran a background check before hiring them. Everything seemed okay. But, he didn’t know the person ran a fan account, and was stalking one of his celebrity clients. That person was fired as soon as the pictures were leaked online.

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

He tries to avoid them. But, he’s a big softy when it comes to children he knows.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

A bear. Literally and figuratively. After his protein shake, the drive into work, and a solo workout, he’s much more personable.

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

Pretty much everyone in Saramto is a shifter of some sort. So, he really doesn’t have to act any different.

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

He’s too busy to do everything himself. He’s learned to delegate since he started his business. Though if someone is sick, he knows how to work every single position in his gym.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

Has a tattoo. The letter R. It’s on his chest, near his heart.

personal vehicle

A Mermaid’s Wish by Lyncee Shillard

Genre paranormal romance suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Aislynn is a mermaid who has watched humans from afar for thousands of years. A negotiator for Neptune, she wonders, what it would be like to feel anything but especially passion the way humans do when they have sex. The truth is mermaids can’t feel emotions of any kind and hot sex is one of those experiences she wishes for. When the opportunity to become a human – temporarily – presents itself, she takes it.
Finley McCormock is a hard-core, tough as nails divorce attorney who represents rich women leaving their husbands. He has no time to do pro-bono environmental work like his colleagues or to fall in love himself. Why bother? He knows how marriages end. But, his new housekeeper, as odd as she is, gives him a hard on he has to take care of. The good news is Aislynn seems more than happy to oblige. She is his sexual fantasy come true, from the mid-day office visit that includes a spanking session to the trip to Trinker’s Sex Toys. Aislynn is willing to try anything.
But, when Aislynn’s past catches up with her, Finley will have to decide if his attraction for Aislynn goes further than the surface of the water. Does he really want to get in deep with his mermaid?

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Watch TV – in Atlantis there is no television. She’s sort of addicted to Chopped ;-)
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Doughnuts.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Actually, the one thing she doesn’t like about being human is wearing clothes
Does she know how to fix things?
Nope. She’s not even sure what some things are :-D
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Her goal is to experience all human emotions – mermaids are void of emotions – so she kisses a random stranger. It doesn’t go well. She tells him he isn’t good at kissing because wanted to moan and no moaning happened but thanks him for sharing the emotion of disappointment with her.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Goes for a swim.
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
She’s about trying various kinds. While, Atlantis has coffee but just plain. She loves flavors especially hazelnut.

In human shape he’s a big, muscular guy. He has a young, handsome face, with a straight nose and square chin, crowned by a mop of glossy chestnut curls. He also has striking emerald-green eyes.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Yann is caring, kind, loyal and brave. He defies the laws of his Clan to save humans from drowning. His love for Alex brings him in conflict with his people, but he risks all to protect her. In the end he realizes that his own happiness matters, and he sacrifices his right to lead his Clan in order to marry Alex. A big guy, with a big heart!
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
His human love interest, Alex. She’s the light of his life.
What special skills does your character rely on?
Yann is a shape shifting merman, he can move between the human world and the sea world. In aquatic shape, he can talk to sea mammals, taste every current through the membranes of his nose, and hear the song of a humpback whale from a hundred miles away. He can swim as well as any dolphin, and stay underwater for as long as a pilot whale. Like them he uses echolocation to orientate himself, and communicate at a distance with other mermen. He can also compose songs, in the mermen language of musical clicks and whistles. In human shape he’s a great sailor, and a fantastic swimmer.
What does he have a knack for doing?
He has a knack for annoying other mermen by spending too much time with humans, and in human shape. Also he keeps rescuing humans – even when doing so risks revealing his true nature. The mermen live incognito alongside humans and won’t allow any human to know the truth about them.
What is your character’s family like?
Yann lost his mother when he was young. He was brought up by his father, Bryn. Bryn is caring, but stern. He expects Yann to follow in his footsteps and become leader after him. That means he has to behave like a proper merman, and marry a nice mermaid who can help him lead the Benetynn Clan.
What past event causes your character the most fear?
Yann’s mum died whilst rescuing a human swimmer who had got into difficulty. When Yann was 12, another swimmer got into trouble near his island. He wanted to save her, but his father wouldn’t let him, for fear Yann would die too – or reveal his true nature to a human. Yann had to watch the woman die, knowing he could have saved her. After that, he promised himself that he would never again let a human drown. His biggest fear is breaking that promise. He will risk his own life, and his Clan’s anger, to rescue humans.
If your character could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
Yann would love mermen to live openly among humans, so he’d no longer have to hide his true self. In the distant past, mermen and humans lived side by side and intermarried, but centuries ago mermen decided to stay away from humans as much as possible and keep themselves to themselves. It’s a source of regret for Yann. He thinks that his people’s secrecy comes at a heavy price.

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?
I guess I have a pretty unusual story. I’m the first merman in centuries to marry a human. My writer loves Wales and Brittany, and their legends, so she’s always been drawn to the stories of us mermen and our world.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think she loves to escape from her everyday life and spend time with us. We have exciting tales to tell, and it’s more fun for her than working in an office, I guess.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
I know she’s already written about my mate Rob, and his spunky girlfriend Charlie, so I’d like her to write a book about my best friend, Caltha. She’s been really helpful to me and Alex, so it would be great if she too could find love. Though I’m not sure what kind of man would be man enough for Caltha. She’s one feisty mermaid, and she’s devoted to the Clans. It would take magic to convince her to let her hair down a little, and allow herself to be loved and cared for.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Thanks for giving me such a lovely wife. I wish you hadn’t made it so hard! But hey, it’s all good now.

Where to buy A Merman’s Choice by Alice Renaud

For centuries the shape-shifting mermen of the Morvann Islands have lived incognito among humans. But one of them, Yann, has developed some bad habits. Like rescuing humans, even when doing so risks revealing his true nature. When he fishes Alex out of the sea, he doesn’t expect her to reappear eight months later, and turn his life upside down by asking him to be her guide.
Alex is determined to fulfil a promise to her dying grandmother, by gathering pictures and stories of the Morvanns. But she soon discovers that, on these remote Welsh islands, legends have a habit of becoming true!
Over the course of a few days, Yann and Alex grow close. But some mermen hate humans. Their hostility, and Yann’s secret, threaten to tear the couple apart just as they are discovering that they are soul mates. Can Yann overcome the obstacles in his path and make the right choice?

Alice Renaud Social Media

Alice was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, her father was French and her mother British (from Wales). She moved to London, UK, in 1997, where she now lives with her husband and son. She works full time as a compliance specialist in a pharmaceutical company. She has been writing in her free time since she was 14. She got quite a few short stories published in UK magazines, before moving to longer fiction. She wrote three contemporary romance books, but didn’t find a publisher for them. She then realized that mermen, sea witches, and time travelling warlocks were a lot more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! Her first two paranormal romances did not find a publisher either, then she wrote A Merman’s Choice, which was published in January this year by Black Velvet Seductions. It is the first book in the Sea of Love series, a fantasy romance trilogy inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. The second book in the series, Music for a Merman, will be out later this year. She loves reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who’s interested!
