Know the Hero from Mink Omega in Hiding by Jessica E Subject @jsubject #RLFblog #MPreg #PNR #RomanceJessica E Subject, 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.

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 or public transport?

personal vehicle

Recycle or toss?

recycle and compost whenever possible

Star Brides: Dept of Corrections by Pia Manning @piamanning3 #RLFblog #NewRelease #romance #SciFiPia Manning, 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.

Star Brides: Dept of Corrections by Pia Manning

Genre Erotic Romance, SciFi, Action/Adventure

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): NR

Inmate 1640 would do anything to escape serving her long and well-deserved prison sentence. Anything. Including leaving Earth with Zuntx warrior Kadir, to serve as mate to him and the three other men of his unit.

Janine Longo was sentenced to twenty years for beating a man who tried to cheat her. Sick of her trouble making ways, prison authorities gave Janine an opportunity to attend a Bridal Fair, find an alien husband and leave Earth. When the pool of available mates dwindles and the guards call her name, Janine hastily agrees to return to Zuntx with Kadir. Besides, if she doesn’t like Zuntx or the men, she can always wander away and blend in with the crowd. Right?

Scarred and disfigured Kadir, is growing desperate. This is his third time as a Fair participant, and he doesn’t have the money to fund another attempt. So, when the woman in the orange jumpsuit agrees to accompany him, he accepts her offer.

Shortly after landing on Zuntx, Janine meets the other men in Kadir’s unit: Tero, Kobak and Bakur. Together, they disembark and head for home. Problem is, the thriving bustling Zuntx that Kadir left behind is not the same place he returns to. Riot torn, the planet’s homeless men now wander aimlessly seeking food, shelter and women.

This is not at all what Janine had in mind.

Can Janine find redemption on Zuntx? Is this her second chance? Can she learn to love her men? All four? And what about Tero’s little ‘problem?’ Hmmm…

Will life on Zuntx improve? Kadir has a plan…

Why did you write this book?

Kadir’s story kept nagging at me! I met him in Star Brides: Procured, when he was in a tough spot. His views of women and their capabilities needed to evolve. Janine’s not much of a rule follower. Her attitude has gotten her into trouble many times. She needs a second chance at redemption. So, I thought they’d be good for each other, and their journey a tale worth telling.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love reading erotic romances, scifi/fantasy, mystery, suspense, and well, you get the idea!

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

I’d have to say Meg Corbyn from Anne Bishop’s The Others series. Bishop manages to weave the paranormal into the normal in such a way as to make it an accepted part of her character’s everyday life.

What are you working on at the moment?

Star Brides 4 looms on my horizon, as well as a paranormal/horror novel.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Star Brides 4 will make an appearance in the next few months. I hope readers have enjoyed the Star Brides universe as much as I have enjoyed writing about its characters and their trials and tribulations finding true love. The as yet untitled para/horror novel will also find a release date.

Introducing Temms Rogers from Horizon Crossover series, by Lyndi Alexander #RLFblog #spaceopera #SciFiLet’s meet Temms Rogers from Horizon Crossover series, a space opera, by Lyndi Alexander. 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 story your author wrote.

Horizon Crossover series by Lyndi Alexander

Genre science fiction, space opera
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
In an attempt to save his ship and its crew, Captain Temms Rogers uses an untested alien technology which hurls the Doubtful and its occupants away from a massive space battle. Rogers awakens to find his ship crippled and his crew decimated. They are lost in an unknown region of space, but they are but not alone. As they struggle to survive, they encounter multiple local groups, including mystical beings known as the Ancients. Can Rogers and the crew of the Doubtful find a way to survive in this strange corner of the universe?
Rogers and the crew of the spaceship Doubtful are caught between a powerful interplanetary group called the Agency and mystical beings known as the Ancients.
With the voices of the Ancients haunting his dreams and a mysterious illness plaguing his crew, Rogers must find a derelict space station and discover its secrets before the Agency destroys them all.
The Agency is tired of Captain Rogers’ urging for democracy in their region of space. Rogers soon realizes the Agency intends to use him and the crew of the Doubtful for their purposes or else.
Can he gather the other captains of the sector in rebellion against the Agency, with all its echoes of his earlier battle against the Confederation, and bring down their repressive regime? Or will Rogers lead his crew into a fight they cannot win?

Introducing Temms Rogers

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 57

Gender: male

Birthplace: Planet Gilada

Profession: spaceship captain, formerly military, now mercenary

Ethnicity: Descendant of western Europeans

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human
What do you look like?
Not too bad for a man of my age. But the years are creeping up on me, you know? A little thicker round the middle than I used to be. Hair more salt than pepper these days. But I earned every one of those gray hairs.
Who is the significant other in your life?
It was Kitana, my first officer. But she died in the Crossover to this universe. I’m still getting used to the idea she’s gone.
How do you dress?
For so many years, I wore the Confederation uniform. Since I’ve broken with my old commanders, though, I’m just as likely to be seen commanding the ship in a bright-colored Hawaiian shirt and slacks.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I went through the basics at the Academy, then went on to study history and military tactics for an advanced certificate. But I tend to live by what I learned in practice on the deck of a spaceship. Most importantly, I’ve learned how to size up people. Just because they’ve been in trouble with the law, or failed by society’s rules, doesn’t mean they can’t become a valuable crew member. This is very important to me.
What is your viewpoint on wealth?
Wealth? As in great piles of money? Doesn’t really matter to me. My ex-wife Connie always competed in the officers’ wives chaos—who had the best personal vehicle, maids, proper landscaping, all that. But these days as long as I can keep my crew working and fed, I’m pretty happy. That is, until greedy taxing bodies like the Agency come along, trying to take an unfair percentage of what we’ve earned. Then I’ve just got to politely—or not so politely—decline.
Are you close to family? Do you have children?
I have twins, a boy and a girl, still in school, living with their mother. Our oldest son Tommy followed me into service with the Confederation. I don’t think his mother will ever forgive me.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
I’d love to see my daughter Linz. *with a sigh* She always was a little shallow; her mother encouraged that stuff about being fashionable regardless of the cost, about being a pretty butterfly rather than a smart student. But now that we’re in a new universe, I expect I’ll never see her or her twin brother Alex again.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?
Jal Burko. He led the Confederation mission that hit my breaking point and caused our ship to rebel. The last thing I heard him say when we used the alien device to escape his vengeful attack was that he’d get me for this. As it stands, he may have followed me into this new universe. If so, I expect he won’t give up until one of us kills the other.

Discover the world of the Elf Queen by Lyndi Alexander #RLFblog #SciFi #fantasy #urbanfantasyLyndi Alexander, 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.

The Elf Queen by Lyndi Alexander

Genre: Fantasy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
At her friend’s coaxing, Jelani tries on a glass slipper left lying on the sidewalk. When she steps into the shoe, it shatters, cutting her foot. As blood trickles to the pavement and mingles with the broken glass, dozens of two-inch high creatures emerge and then scurry away into the shadows. Soon she is approached by two mysterious and handsome men claiming to be elves who need her help to rescue their queen. More revelations come, threatening to unravel the life of this sassy barista from Missoula, Montana. Jelani must learn to accept that elves are real and living in the forests of the Bitterroot Mountains.
What species/races of people are in your book?
Humans and elves

Language and Culture

In the culture of your story world, what is different from ours?
Sadly, it is what makes them the same that becomes more important. Jealousy, strife and bad family dynamics are behind the schism which led to the state of the elven world at the time this story takes place. Brother against sister, sons against fathers—the clan must wrestle with these before they can move forward.
What special laws are important to your story world?
The clan comes from a place of connection to the land (which is why the elves will work openly with ELF, the Earth Liberation Front, considered ecoterrorists by the FBI). They draw strength and energy from earth centers, and return it to the earth once they are gone. Years past, they had a balanced symbiosis with the land, and they must return to this balance if they are to survive.

Story Setting

Describe one of the worlds where your story takes place.
The Clan Elves of the Bitterroot live side by side with the people and animals of the northwest Montana lands. Most of the time they pass unnoticed, as do their homes, wrought by magic in the forest, up in the trees, like gossamer floors and walls, because the human world moves so quickly and remains self-absorbed. Once a mage of the clan teaches a human how to “see what is right in front of them, then this shadowy world can be seen.
What makes this world unique?
Their needs are not great, so they can generate everything they need with their own magic. For example, when mage Daven Talvi constructs a home for Jelani inside a large tree trunk, she finds that space is different inside a spelled place. Her nerdy friends compare it to the Tardis—much bigger on the inside than outside.
Tell us about the age of the culture in your story, i.e., are the people part of an ancient civilization, a newly formed group within an established culture, pioneer colonists, etc.
The civilization goes back to the time of the Native Americans. In those earliest days, elves and humans had much the same way of life and they honored the same things. As humans “matured”, the two cultures grew apart, and the elves began keeping to themselves and moving deeper into the forests. This is why the older forests are cherished grounds for them.
What food or drink is available to your characters?
Whatever they can find in the woods, of course. But as the elves interact with the humans in the story, they do get to experience some more unusual fare like coffee and eggs with brains.

Character Physiology

What are the physical characteristics of the race/species of your main characters?
They appear very much as humans. In fact, until they use their powers, one might see them as anyone else who blends into the background.
What physical differences exist in the way your characters communicate (i.e., telepathy, empathic abilities, etc.) with each other?
The elves are telepathic with others of their own kind. Each elf also has a certain specialty power that helps them contribute to the clan, i.e. ability to control water, fire, wind, etc.

Sharing World Building Expertise

Please give us three tips you find helpful when creating a story world:
Being able to visualize your setting provides myriad details you can use to make the narrative strong. I visited the area north of Missoula several times in order to secure these details—the deep forests, the gray mountains, the waterways of the area. Even the odd tree formations at the Montana Vortex came in useful in The Elf Guardian.
Don’t hold back on your details. They are what make your story come to life.
Think about the language differences for time, for food, etc. Even on our own planet we don’t all use meters or inches—wouldn’t those of a different world have different words for such things? Then you have to use them in a way that it’s clear what they mean to someone reading in American English.
When you researched for your story setting, what kinds of things did you learn?
When I wrote this book, it was the first time I’d ever learned about ecoterrorism. Strangely, this brand of terrorist is trying to save the forests by preventing development of old forest lands. Some are fairly harmless, like those who sit in trees to keep loggers from taking them down. Others put spikes in trees to deter loggers from using their equipment. Others, more violent in nature, actually blow things up to get their message across.
What things should writers avoid when building a science fiction world?
Making it too ordinary.

The Phoenix Rising series by Alexandra Christian

Genre : Sci-fi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Librarian Phoebe Addison has lived her entire life within a seventy-five mile radius of her small Louisiana town, but when she receives a strange medallion from her adventurous, off-world sister, reality tilts toward the bizarre. Everything Phoe thought she knew is…well, wrong. Dead wrong. But bone-numbing fear has no place in this brave new world—nor by the side of the dangerous, exquisite man who saves her life.
Following the tragic slaughter of his family, operative Macijah “Cage” St. John understands evil in a way no man ever should. He traded happiness for a magnificent and terrible power, and fate isn’t done with him yet. He wasn’t looking for comfort. He didn’t need tenderness. But today he’ll play hero to a damsel in distress, and his quest will deliver him to the uncanny Martian colony of New London—and his heart to the demure Phoebe Addison. The bookish beauty’s hidden talents and deep abiding love just might save Cage from himself.
