Read the Sci-Fi Romance Alitus, #2 in the Tales of the Chosen series by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #Romance #writeLGBTQIt’s usually my honor to present an author and a book on this site, but today, there’s an unexpected opening, so I’m filling in! I’m happy to announce the upcoming release of book 2 in my erotic gay romance series, Tales of the Chosen. The book will be available everywhere, but only Amazon permits preorders, so it’s there now. It’s out July 23, 2021.

Alitus, Tales of the Chosen

Genre Erotic gay sci-fi

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

How is this ever going to work…

Ordered by the Empress to find out if the lover of a friend is having an affair, Alitus investigates. As Minister of Imperial Intelligence, Alitus has access to every camera and remote in the empire. Which is a problem, because Wulf’s affair is with Alitus.

As a Better, an enhanced human, Alitus can touch no one — his pheromones are addictive. Isolated and under scrutiny, he keeps his affair with Wulf secret, because Wulf belongs to another, a powerful man allied with the empress. When the man asks the empress to investigate, Wulf’s relationship with Alitus could be exposed. Complicating matters, the empress reveals her immortality, and requires Alitus to prove his loyalty. Her test throws him straight into Wulf’s arms, right in front of the empress and Wulf’s lover. Hiding what he and Wulf are to each other has taken discipline and denial.

Now, it will take a miracle…

The Lock-Keeper's Heart by Neil S Plakcy @NeilPlakcy #RLFblog #NewRelease #MMHistoricalRomance #MMCan two broken men heal each other? In Neil Plakcy’s newest historical romance, The Lock-Keeper’s Heart, journey back in time to 1872, to a rural lock along the Delaware Canal, where a young lock-keeper with a broken heart must help a bargeman with a broken leg.

Neil, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Lock-Keeper’s Heart.

The Lock-Keeper’s Heart by Neil S Plakcy

Genre MM historical romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Fans of MM historical romance will appreciate a fascinating time period, filled with unique details and a vibrant location, and a focus on the lives of working-class men in the 19th century who dare to love other men. This historical MM romance set in a small town in rural Pennsylvania in 1872 has a hurt/comfort theme.

Why did you write this book?

I grew up in the area where this book is set, walking along the long-dormant canal and hearing in my mind the calls of the bargemen and the clip-clop of the mules’ hooves as they dragged coal-laden barges upstream. I wanted to spend time in that world, and I thought it was a fresh time and place for an MM historical romance.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Right now I have a passion for this kind of book, which is why I wanted to write my own. I love MM romance, but I’m too old (LOL) for the stories of contemporary young men to resonate with me. I also read a lot of small-town cozy mysteries and thought I could combine the two genres.

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

Though it’s a cliché, I’d have to say Sal Paradise from Kerouac’s On the Road. I wish I’d had that kind of adventurous spirit as a young man.

What are you working on at the moment?

I had a sabbatical from my college teaching job last fall, so I wrote a lot of first drafts during the quarantine of 2020. Now I’m deep in editorial revisions for several books, but daydreaming about a follow up to The Gentleman and the Spy, my most recent MM historical romance. I think that will take place in Tangier in 1873 and I can’t wait to get there.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’m looking forward to The Graveyard of God’s Name, the next in my Have Body, Will Guard series, which takes place on the resort island of Djerba, off the Tunisian coast. Dog’s Waiting Room is #13 in my golden retriever mystery series, set in the contemporary version of the small town in The Lock-Keeper’s Heart. Finally, Unruly Son is #12 in my Honolulu-based Mahu Investigations.

Surrender Love / Ring of the Dragon / Forever Love by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #MMromance #RLFblog

Surrender Love by Kayelle Allen

Genre Gay Romance, Science Fiction Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

An immortal alpha male. An illegal, near-blind rock musician. And twelve thousand years of lies…

Luc is the most powerful man in an intergalactic empire of 22 planets—but he’s alone, life after life.

Izzorah survives by hiding both his illegal status and his blindness for fear of banishment.

Luc’s immortal blood can heal Izzorah’s sight—but only Izzorah’s love can heal Luc’s heart.

Luc might risk violating the highest law among the immortals by sharing his blood, but it means revealing the truth of what he is, and that means baring every damning secret, every twisted truth, and twelve thousand years’ worth of dirty hidden lies.

With no guarantee their love can survive that kind of truth…

Ring of the Dragon

For millennia, they fight side by side. Now one king faces a lonely quest.

As Light and Shadow, King Pietas and General Cyken share every battle, as well as a fierce and passionate love.

But, torn apart by the king’s rage, Cyken ends their stormy relationship.

When General Cyken falls in love with another man, Pietas undertakes a perilous quest on the dangerous world of Felidae to prove he is the better choice for Cyken.

If he succeeds in his quest, it will either bring Cyken back, or drive him even closer to his new love. Pietas must try, for he cannot face eternity without a shadow to balance his light…

Forever Love

For their love, forever isn’t long enough.
Izzorah has always been a Kin, part of a human-like race of fierce, rugged felines. Now he’s a brand-new immortal too.
When he learns the truth about his fiancé’s immortality–and his own–the familiar world he knew vanishes. He must pass a test designed by the immortal king to reveal his gifts and weaknesses.
Pass and he’s accepted into a warrior society he wants no part of. Fail and he’s cast out, away from the man he loves.
As if that’s not bad enough, his lover is also the king’s ex, and the king refuses to part with anything–or anyone–he loves.
Fair test? Not in this immortal lifetime…

Changing Faces: a Transgender SciFi by Barb Caffrey @BarbCaffrey #RLFblog #writeLGBT #SciFiAllen and Elaine are graduate students in Nebraska, and love each other very much. Their life should be idyllic, but Elaine’s past includes rape, neglect, and abuse from those who should’ve loved her–but didn’t, because from childhood, Elaine identified as transgender.

When Elaine tells Allen right before Christmas, he doesn’t know what to do. He loves Elaine, loves her soul, has heard about transgender people before, but didn’t think Elaine was one of them–she looks and acts like anyone else. Now, she wants to become a man and is going to leave.

He prays for divine intervention, and says he’ll do anything, just please don’t separate him from Elaine…and gets it.

Now, he’s in Elaine’s body. And she’s in his. They’ll get a second chance at love.

Why? Because once you find your soulmate, the universe will do almost anything to keep you together–even change your faces.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

With his career threatened and his life at risk, Wulf must seek help from the one man he swore he would never trust again, Luc Saint-Cyr, a.k.a. the Harbinger. An enigmatic man whose legendary power makes him the most feared person in the empire.

For the Harbinger, saving Wulf is a simple matter of asserting his will. Luc’s ties to the Thieves’ Guild grant him access anywhere.

He can protect Wulf without difficulty.

Until Luc brings Wulf home for safekeeping, and discovers the real reason for the threats. Protecting Wulf has not only put his and Wulf’s lives at risk, it’s also risked the life of Luc’s teenaged son.

This is beyond protection, now. To the Harbinger, this is personal…

Know the Hero, Izzorah from Surrender Love

Name: Izzorah Ceeow

Age: 24

Physical description: 5’9″ golden skin, dark hair, green eyes

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

Izzorah is likely to curl up and listen to music, or watch a holovid on his mobile device. He’s a loner. Good reason – he’s an alien, a Kin. He doesn’t mesh well in human society and his catlike eyes, ears, and small fangs make it obvious. Some humans fear Kin, so he’s learned to keep a low profile.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

His favorite meal is a steak, but Kin like theirs super rare, and humans usually overcook it. But he’ll eat almost anything when he’s hungry. He’s not a picky eater.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Izzorah lives in T-shirts and jeans, with comfortable boots. His favorite T-shirt has the logo for the rock group Iron Soul on the front. It’s tattered and stained, but he wears it all the time when it’s clean, and most of the time when it’s not. ;) Although Izzy is the drummer in Kumwhatmay, he doesn’t have anything with the band’s logo. Everytime he buys something, he ends up giving it to a fan.

Does he know how to fix things?

No technical ability at all. Not his strength. At least, not yet.

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

Izzorah was supposed to stick close to his band leader on the way to sign an important five-year contract. But he got distracted by the smell of flowers from his homeworld, and slipped away to find the source. He’s able to focus only within an arm’s length, so he wears an assistive device on one ear that gives him a tone when he asks for directions. He’d turned it off and wasn’t aware he was about to walk into a waist-high wall. He slammed right into it. However, he did discover that the wall was an enclosure for a massive indoor terrarium, and climbed inside it. He couldn’t read the signs warning him to stay out, so he hopped up, and then knelt and scratched in the dirt to smell the soil. It was from his mother’s vast holdings back on his home planet. He was so stunned by this that he didn’t realize until the last minute that his band leader had come up to him. After being yelled at for wandering off (the second time that day), he climbed down and accompanied the band to the signing. But he never got to know how the terrarium had soil from his mother’s land. That will come up in a future book.

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

He loves little kids and has a way with them. Kin males are the homemakers on Felidae. They stay home with the children and keep house. Females believe males are too undisciplined to control themselves. Males are mostly isolated within their families.

Know the Hero from Surrender Love by Kayelle Allen @kayelleallen #RLFblog #MMromance #SciFi

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He used to be hard to wake up, but now that he’s immortal, he has unlimited energy. Even so, he’d still rather snuggle in the morning.

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

He’s quiet. Izzorah has the ability to sense emotions in others, and it’s nigh onto impossible to lie to him.

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

Izzorah does things for himself. He wouldn’t dream of asking someone to do anything for him.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

He’s never been brave enough. Now that he’s immortal, nothing would stick. Piercings would heal too fast to be worthwhile.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Before he met Luc, it was public transport and on foot.

Recycle or toss?

Reuse until it falls apart. He is conscious of the need to be a good steward of what he’s given or earned.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
