Is It True: Cameron and Rylan (A Chance Meeting Book One) by Valerie Ullmer @valerieullmer #RLFblog #gayromance #newadultWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Valerie Ullmer, author of Cameron and Rylan (A Chance Meeting Book One), a contemporary new adult M/M romance. This is a game with yes and no questions.

Cameron and Rylan (A Chance Meeting Book One) by Valerie Ullmer

Genre: contemporary new adult M/M romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Cameron Hayes believed himself to be a dedicated friend and a good son but destined to be alone. Because in his twenty-one years, he’d never fallen for anyone. Dating never appealed to him when he would rather spend a night at home. Despite his friend’s best intentions for Cameron to find a hookup for the night, he stayed at the bar as he nursed a beer. And that’s when Cameron spotted him and everything he knew evaporated with one look.

Rylan Ellis wanted one night out without complications. To forget about his overwhelming responsibilities and stress at home. He loved to lose himself in the music and ignore everyone around him. But when he happened a glance at the bar and spotted the tall, broad, and sexy-as-sin man, he felt drawn to him.

Soon, Cameron and Rylan learn about each other and establish their lives together. They also have to deal with a group of well-meaning friends, loving parents, and unexpected friendships. But most of all, a dangerous threat that could tear their lives apart.

Know the Hero from Impatient Passion

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

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

Tyler is rarely bored. He worked long and hard to build his business and even now it captures his attention most often. When he takes a break he spends time with his sister and her son. Now of course, he’d like to be spending time with Austin, if she’d ever wake up to the fact that he loves her.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He’s a burger and fries kind of guy generally. But he lives in San Francisco, so anything he has a hankering for he can easily find. He enjoys North Beach for Italian or some of the best stir fry from Chinatown.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Tyler is the kind of man who dresses the way he wants people to view him. So at work he wears a suit. At home or out with family he wears jeans and a sweatshirt (or tee). He’s not into anything fancy or trendy—or even name brands. He just wants to be comfortable and yet neat.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes, he’s pretty handy. His sister is a widow and he’s taken care of things around her house for years. Strangely, where he will make time to repair things at his sister’s, he usually hires someone to make repairs beyond tightening a screw at his own place.

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

Austin has never given Tyler the time of day. But when an unusual opportunity presented itself to get Austin alone and seduce her without revealing his identity, he grabbed it. Was it the right things to do? NO!!! Not surprisingly, Austin was not happy. Tyler had to fight to gain back any ground he’d won for her affection and it was not fast or easy coming.

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

Tyler is very close to his nephew Robbie, and he likes kids. Meeting children doesn’t faze him. He’d always thought he would marry and have a big family and it’s still something he wants.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s one of those annoying people who wakes up ready for the day. Hardly even needs a cup of coffee.

Can he use chopsticks?

Absolutely! And he uses them often because Chinese is one of his favorite kinds of food.

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

He drinks lots of coffee! He takes it black.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He’s not one for social apps or games. He would have only those things needed for business. He would probably also have something related to food—a food service or an order app for his favorite restaurants, especially for when he eats at the office.

Android or iPhone?

iPhone

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean shaven.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

His skin is free and clear. He was never interested in tattoos and piercings or earrings are just…no.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Normally he’s too impatient for public transport so he drives to work. But for a few days he took the bus and he’s very happy that he did!

Recycle or toss?

Recycle

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?

Read Sensual Stranger by Tina Donahue @tinadonahue #RLFblog #contemporaryTina, 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.

Sensual Stranger by Tina Donahue

Genre: Erotic Contemporary
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Into his life she came—wanting…willing…wanton.
It’s no ordinary morning when Toni Starr arrives at Zach’s garage. Flat broke, with a past she won’t share, Toni’s instantly taken by such a potently virile man. Direct and unashamed, she tells him she’s a motorcycle performance artist who needs work and knows motors.
Zach knows women, and Toni’s unlike any he’s met. Lushly sensuous, exceedingly assured, she’d easily be his match in business and bed. A provocative challenge that stirs him as nothing has since losing his wife. A chance he’s reluctant to take, offering no more than a month’s employment, then she’ll have to be on her way.
The hours tick by. Each word and glance intensifies their denied yet escalating desire, forcing them to surrender to passion. Driven by carnal hunger, conquered by yearning, they face the unforeseen truth of Toni’s past and a future neither of them expected.
What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?
Without question, roasted turkey and gravy, steamed red potatoes, corn, and a huge salad with ranch dressing.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Mexican, Mexican, Mexican. I could eat it 365 days a year.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Not a toy, but crafts. I loved anything that had to be put together, created, or built. I worked for hours or days trying to get everything just so. I was never satisfied until I made the craft look different—and better—than the picture on the box.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Those with gripping themes, such as The Handmaid’s Tale, the Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, and The Girl Who Played with Fire), The Lovely Bones. When I read, I want to feel. To be happy, cry, get angry…
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
Anything I can find on the net regarding the theme, locale, or the characters’ occupations. For example, in Sensual Stranger, Toni is a motorcycle performance artist. An unusual occupation for a woman. I scoured news stories to learn about women in the field and the dangers they faced from performing. Fascinating stuff.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
She pulls out her sketch pad and works on some ideas for graphic designs. She doesn’t care for websites with lots of garish colors or overly active graphics, preferring to represent client’s products with thoughtful images. It takes time, but it’s what she loves to do.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Austin lives with her hypochondriac mother who loves being doted on. Most nights Austin stops on the way home and picks up dinner, so most every meal is impulse. She likes Chinese and Mexican as a rule, but splurges on hamburgers.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Dumpy, loose and ill-fitting. She thinks they hide her body and her life—and to most people the ploy works. But not to Tyler who suspects there’s a real beauty under those too-big sweatshirts but who really doesn’t care. He’s already captured by the woman beneath the clothes.
Does she know how to fix things?
No. Not even herself. Until a strange and unusual opportunity presents itself. Then it’s all systems go!
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
She tried to follow her supervisor’s orders during a client presentation and was losing the client altogether. Before the client stormed out, she took a breath and presented her own idea. It took nerve she didn’t know she had but she saved the account.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
She’s totally uncomfortable around small children, but somewhat older kids, like Tyler’s nephew, she enjoys. She encourages Robbie’s interest in art and web design and finds she has a friend and ally.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
Sleepy, not ready to get up. But she has a job to get to and a bus ride to deal with. Turns out, a particular bus ride ends up changing her life!
Can she use chopsticks?
Absolutely! Can’t everyone?
Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?
Yes. In fact, she drinks a lot of coffee! A working girl’s best friend!
What apps would she have on her phone?
Anything that would help her when she sets up her own business. For fun, Solitaire, which is also a sad commentary on her life before the infamous bus trip! She doesn’t need a business app when she’s working for Tyler, although she likes Evernote.
Android or iPhone?
iPhone
Earrings or unpierced ears?
Pierced. She doesn’t dress up much, though, or use much jewelry. That would bring too much attention to herself.
Tattoos or unadorned skin?
She would almost rather die than be tattooed. For Austin, that’s a level of ostentatiousness hard to imagine.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
She doesn’t own a car, so always public transport.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle
