Lyndi Alexander, 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.
A Small Degree of Hope by Lyndi Alexander
Genre: sci-fi romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Against her wealthy father’s demands, and the usual blockades of a male dominated profession, Kylie Sanderson proves worthy of her position as lead investigator of planet Andan’s Scientific and Investigative Research Taskforce. Someone is killing Andan’s women in an attempt to mutate them into reptiles. Kylie makes it her mission to discover who’s behind the murders and prevent more grotesque deaths.
Shapeshifting lizard Griff comes to Andan to stop his brethren from mutating other planets’ women into mindless breeding stock. Overcoming Kylie’s suspicious and defensive nature proves difficult, but he must in order to help the SIRT team thwart his planet’s scientists.
When Kylie is abducted and becomes the first human to survive the transformation, it’s up to Griff to rescue her so SIRT can restore her human form. On the run and desperate to unravel the mysteries of Kylie’s past to solve the crimes of their present, can she and Griff forge a future for themselves?
Know the Hero from A Small Degree of Hope
Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Griff would revert to his reptile form and go hunting for something to eat.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Definitely raw steak
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
When he’s around humans, he tries to dress unobtrusively–a pullover shirt and jeans. In his reptile form, he finds no need for clothing.
Does he know how to fix things?
Yes. He’s very good at working with things–not so much, working with people.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Once he’s fallen in love with Kylie, he only wants to save her. But his people want to transform her into a breeding reptile. He is only one alien against all of them, so he isn’t successful at first. He blames himself for her pain.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
He loves all small beings, human or alien. He would try to make them laugh.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
He’s all business, at least during the time of our story. We imagine, though, that if he could come to a time in his life where he’s not at war, he could spend time sharing heat with a mate.
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
Griff knows that his kind is the aggressor in this conflict, so he’s on guard against most humans at the time of the story. The SIRT officers would likely kill him, not knowing if he’s “one of the good ones.” So he is very low-key and cautious with humans he doesn’t know and trust.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
He’s a hands-on type of alien–when the only one you can count on is yourself, you need to make sure you’re safe. Fortunately he lets Kylie into his circle and they trust each other.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
His natural scales are a beautiful mottled red–why decorate?
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Since he is on a human world instead of his own, he’s mostly on foot or with Kylie in her car.
Recycle or toss?
He is involved in a life or death struggle with his own people, trying to save human women–I doubt he even thinks about it. Priorities, right?
Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
