Earth in 2093 by Edna Curry @Edna_Curry #RLFblog #RomanticSuspense #ScifiEdna Curry, 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.

Earth in 2093 by Edna Curry

Genre a futuristic romantic suspense novel

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

The year is 2093 and everyone’s DNA is recorded in the World Database run by a now powerful United Nations. Crime is way down, since criminals are easily identified. Food is plentiful because water from the oceans is desalinated for irrigation of former deserts. Power is also plentiful and cheap, harnessed from the sun and wind.
But there are always a few people who resent governments of any kind and think they can do as they please. One is now raping and killing young women and Dave and Nell work to identify and stop him. But they find that easier said than done.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes. I’ve written contemporary romance, romantic suspense, historical romance and futuristic romance novels. I’ve also written a variety of short stories and non-fiction articles for national magazines.
How do you come up with ideas?…
I don’t know. They seem to just pop up and evolve in my mind. For example, this story was inspired by getting my own DNA test done and made me wonder how life would be different if everyone’s DNA was recorded in a World Database. And since most of my stories seem to include mystery, it seemed logical to include that in a story.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Making up characters and then a story for them. The fun part is imagining what if? And thinking about the various ways the story could go. What would happen if this happened? Or how would it change if that happened instead? And so on and on.
When did you write your first book?…
Somewhere in the early 80s. Though I’d published short stories before that.

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!

Argen's Mate by Clarissa Lake @ clarissalake1 #RLFblog #NewRelease #SciFi #RomanceClarissa Lake, 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.

Argen’s Mate by Clarissa Lake

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Argen Trematu was home on leave at Farseek Brigade when the Sargan’s attacked his home world. With Farseek in ruins, Argen was captured and sold into slavery. Lieutenant Commander Trematu didn’t make such a good slave and landed him on the Julconi prison planet fighting in the pit. He thinks his life is over until he learns the Farseek Mercenaries were on the way to the rescue. Argen never thought landing on the prison world would be his lucky break.
Then me meets her on the rescue ship.
Zoey Addison was kidnapped from Earth and rescued by the Farseek Mercenaries. She joined the Mercenaries with her three friends because she had nowhere else to go. Her friends all found their soul mates among the crew and Zoey was feeling left out.
Until, dressed in rags and so dirty she could barely discern what color he was, Argen walks up to her table and takes her hand. The attraction between them all most crackles.
Why did you write this book?
This book is the culmination of the Farseek Mercenary Series: Commander’s Mate, Lieutenant’s Mate, Sahvin’s Mate, and Argen’s Mate. Then as a sampler of the series I added Faigon’s Mate as a freebie. I needed another series to keep readers interested after the Narovian Mates series. I wanted to create a little different twist on alien abduction romance and I started with the opening lines of Commander’s Mate.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Science fiction romance space opera.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
It’s usually the hero of the book I am reading at any given time. I really have a soft spot for cyborg heroes.
What are you working on at the moment?
A mail order bride romance with a cyborg. It’s the second entry in my Narovian Interstellar Matchmaker series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’m planning more steamy scifi romance set in the Narovian/Farseek Universe
