Meet Aaron Wolfsbane from The Sweetest Magic of All by Alice Renaud @alicerauthor #RLFblog #paranormalromanceWelcome Aaron Wolfsbane from The Sweetest Magic of All, a new paranormal romance short story from the Mystic Desire BVS anthology.

Aaron Wolfsbane

Age: 28

Gender: Male

Birthplace: Uxbridge, Greater London, United Kingdom

Profession: Teacher

Ethnicity: White

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

Please provide a physical description of the character.
Tall, fit, with tousled black hair. His eyes are as green and limpid as the water in a woodland brook. A tanned, handsome face, with a straight nose and strong jaw.

Please tell us a little about your character.
Aaron is a time-travelling warlock who has just come back from the 17th century. He has come to Wales to find out if there are still sea witches left, and if their old magic still works.

Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
He meets the love of his life, Sapphire, in the story. Sapphire is the last in a long line of sea witches… but she’s only an apprentice sorceress, and she’s having trouble with her spells.

How does your hero dress?

Aaron moves between the 17th and the 21st century. When in the 17th century, he dresses like a gentleman of the time: black doublet and breeches, riding boots, and in winter, a cloak. In the 21st century he wears clothes suitable for a teacher, as that’s his day job: smart-casual shirts and trousers, or jeans and T-shirts when not working. Like all warlocks, he favours black.

How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?

Aaron teaches English literature. He is very well read and very knowledgeable about Shakespeare – which isn’t surprising, as he knows the man and drinks with him regularly.

What special skills does your character rely on?

His magical skills, which include light healing, finding lost objects, and time travel. His specialty however is seeing what is in men’s – and women’s – hearts. He can see into your very soul.

What is your character’s family like?

Aaron is the son of a medieval witch, Alys Wolfsbane, also known as Alys the Dark, who ran away from her abusive husband and escaped into the 21st century. Unfortunately she had to leave her baby son behind – Auric, Aaron’s elder brother. In the 21st century, Alys met Aaron’s father, and gave birth to Aaron. They were happy for a while, until one day she disappeared. She reappeared the following evening. She looked ten years older, and she had a little boy with her – Ariel, Aaron’s younger brother. It turned out that she had been abducted by the Faeries, and spent years in Faerieland. Ariel is half-Fae. So Aaron has a rather unusual family!

If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would he most want it to be, and why? OR who would he most NOT want it to be, and why?

He would like to see his mother again. After her mysterious disappearance and return, she and Aaron’s father tried to rekindle their relationship, but Aaron’s father couldn’t get over the fact that she was 10 years older and had had a son by another man. Eventually she went away for good, taking Aaron’s brother, Ariel, with her. Ariel returned years later, but she didn’t. Ariel told Aaron that she had gone back to Faerieland, for good. Aaron still loves his mum, but is angry with her for abandoning him. They have unresolved issues!

What is your hero’s biggest hopes and dreams?

To settle down, with someone who will love him as he is, and never leave him.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

I’m a time-travelling warlock, and I have an unusual family background, so I guess I have an interesting story to tell.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

I think she loves to spend time with us, away from her work and family duties. We help her to relax and forget her worries.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?

I think she should write books about my brothers, Auric and Ariel. They’re very interesting guys. Auric is a medieval monk who uses his magical skills to fight demons. Ariel, with his Fae blood, is the most powerful warlock in England, and all the women fall under his spell.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?

Don’t give up. Keep writing.

Alice was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, her father was French and her mother British (from Wales). She moved to London, UK, in 1997, where she now lives with her husband and son. She works full time as a compliance specialist in a pharmaceutical company. She has been writing in her free time since she was 14. She got quite a few short stories published in UK magazines, before moving to longer fiction. She wrote three contemporary romance books, but didn’t find a publisher for them. She then realized that mermen, sea witches, and time travelling warlocks were a lot more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! Her first two paranormal romances did not find a publisher either, then she wrote A Merman’s Choice, which was published in January this year by Black Velvet Seductions. It is the first book in the Sea of Love series, a fantasy romance trilogy inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. The second book in the series, Music for a Merman, will be out later this year. She loves reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who’s interested!

Profession: Entry level clerical work

Ethnicity: White

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall. Nearly six feet. Dark blue eyes and long thick hair – the color red everyone seems to want these days.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Something about me seems to intimidate guys. Could be my sarcastic attitude. That’s what my friend, Carrie, seems to think. And she’s right. It’s my defense mechanism.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Never in a million years thought I’d fall for a guy like Rhys. Quiet, capable, keeps to himself. He takes his job seriously…even to the point of blaming himself when things go wrong, the way I did when Dad died. Only one problem. He treats me like an unwanted responsibility. Every time I try to get to know him better, he clams up and starts acting like commando man. And it goes downhill from there. I let him get under my skin..

What special skills do you rely on?

Lara and her father spent a lot of time in the woods while she was growing up. Hunting, camping, fishing.

What do you have a knack for doing?

Lara’s stubborn. She won’t give up on something she believes in.

Is she close to family?

Lara had no brothers or sisters, and her mother died when she was very young. She and her father were very close.

How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption?

In the book, her best friend Carrie refers to her as the redhead with a killer figure, and she’s spot on.

If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would she most want it to be, and why? OR who would she most NOT want it to be, and why?

Lara would give anything to see her father again. They argued just before he died and she’s never gotten over it.

Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?

Lara can keep a secret. Something important has been planted in her memory. She has no idea what it is, but she refuses to let someone pick her brain to find out. Especially someone who will use the information for all the wrong reasons.

What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?

Lara doesn’t realize how strong she really is.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

Lara needs to forgive herself. She’s not responsible for her father’s death.

What would help your character face hardship and meet any challenge?

If she knew how Rhys truly felt about her, she’d have the strength to do anything.

How does your character express disappointment?

She gets angry.

Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?

Rhys . Because Lara cares about him.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

I’m stubborn, sarcastic, determined. We have those traits in common

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?

I wish she hadn’t told anyone who I feel about Rhys. It’s embarrassing.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

I’m stronger than I thought.

What makes your writer the most sad?

It makes her sad to think me losing my father, but she’s happy that I came to terms with his death.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

She loves words and how they can paint a picture.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?

Cobal’s father is chieftain of the clan, and Cobal was supposed to follow in his footsteps until he realized his future lay in another direction.

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.

I wish he didn’t dwell so much on the naughty things I did for vengeance
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
He was surprised that I could not fall out of love with Bill when he abandoned me for priesthood, seeing as we were just kids when it happened. To be honest, it surprised me too, but then, love is a mystery, an indecipherable mystery
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Well, thank you for giving your readers a portrait of my life, warts and all.

Tell us about Take Back the Memory

The saga of a compelling backward journey through a broken mind…
Paige Lyman, an accomplished psychiatrist, is on the verge of madness but she doesn’t know it yet. The madness begins when she gets it into her head to write her memoirs. As her brilliant mind assembles bits and pieces of her life for the book, ugly skeletons, long forgotten in the closet, rear their heads.
It all begins with a simple act of love. And love, for her is a blond-haired Irish boy named Bill, so when Bill abandons her for priesthood, the world around her collapses. Seized by a different passion—vengeance—she seeks her proverbial pound of flesh in the beds of various priests.
But that’s before she meets Stern W, a medical researcher, who sweeps into her life like a hurricane and marries her. And they live happily after until he dies in a helicopter crash and she discovers the startling truth about who he really was. Now, Paige, transformed from psychiatrist to patient, is saddled with a damning memory she must decipher to be free.
Take Back the Memory is the saga of her compelling backward journey through her own life on a psychotherapist’s couch.

Introducing Stephan von Haas from Alpha Mine, by Brenda Sparks @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #PNRLet’s meet Stephan von Hass from Alpha Mine, a paranormal romance, by Brenda Sparks. 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.

Alpha Mine by Brenda Sparks

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

In the shadows of the night, there exists a band of warriors–a group of vampires, known as the Alpha Council. Their formidable leader, Stephan von Haas, has vowed to protect not only his kind, but the humans existing alongside them. His duty comes before all else–until a sassy blonde saunters into his life.
When a sensual, dark-haired stranger walks into Katrina Spencer’s life, he stirs her deepest desires and sweeps her into a world beyond her wildest dreams. But when Katrina is targeted by Stephan’s enemies, reality shifts into something violent and deadly, as she is thrust into a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and vengeance is coming for her.
Together they will confront an extraordinary destiny of peril, passion, and dark pleasures. But when one horrid mistake brings retribution, their love may pay the price.

Introducing Stephan von Haas

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 650ish…I think. Honestly, I stopped counting after my 300th birthday.
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Germany
Profession: Entrepreneur
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): vampire
What do you look like?
I’m a 6 ft 5 in warrior with dark brown hair and sapphire-blue eyes. I may be over 600 years old, but I’m told I don’t look a day over 35.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Katrina Spencer is my heartmate. She is amazing. She’s a strong-willed, leggy blonde, with gray-blue eyes that will draw you in. She is kind and loving. The day I found out she was my heartmate, was one of the luckiest days of my life.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Yes. You don’t live hundreds of years without learning in multiple ways. I believe in learning everything the world has to offer.
What is your viewpoint on wealth?
I live extravagantly. I am fortunate to have a lot, but I am generous. I believe in giving back, helping others. It’s part of the reason why I established the Alpha Council, to help those who can’t help themselves.
On what special skills do you rely?
My fighting skills. Being the leader of the Alpha Council is a great responsibility. I must not only lead the men, but also lead the fight. I work hard to make sure I stay in top fighting shape and keep my skills as sharp as the blades I carry.
What past event causes you the most fear?
My heartmate was kidnapped and tortured. I’ve never been so scare. If anything happened to Katrina, I could not be held responsible for what I would do.
What is your biggest need?
To make the world a safer place, a place where my heartmate (and one day my children) can move about without fear for their safety.
If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
I would give my heartmate the child she so desperately wants. Unfortunately, having children is biologically difficult for vampires.

Drakon’s Knight by NJ Walters

Genre Paranormal Romance/Dragon shifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Drakon Jericho Drake, the child of a pure-blood dragon and human, has a simple plan: Kill the leader of the Knights of the Dragon and start a war. Except, when he meets his target, Karina Azarov, she can’t remember who she is. Worst of all––he can’t kill her. His dragon side has just claimed the dangerous woman as his mate.
Karina has no idea why these Drakon’s have taken her to their home. And she most certainly does not understand why she’s so drawn to her captor. Maybe because he’s strong, intelligent, and caring, in his enigmatic sort of way. One thing she knows, he’s not going to hurt her. If only she could remember something from her past that would explain why these Drakon’s hate her so much.
But if her memory returns, mated or not, he may get his war.. And one of them will die.

Introducing Jericho Drake

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 4000 years, give or take a few
Gender: male
Birthplace: A place that no longer exists
Profession: Assassin and Real Estate Mogul
Ethnicity:
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon, the son of a dragon and a human woman.
What do you look like?
In my human, form I’m 6’10” with jet black hair and black eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern in red outlined in black. The red signifies I’m a fire drakon. The black is the same color of my eyes.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Karina Azarov. Touch her and it will be the last thing you ever do.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
I’ve lived a very, very long time. Whatever I need to learn I’ve taught myself or found someone to teach me. Drakons have phenomenal memories. That’s made it easier to adapt and change with the times.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I’ve slept on the hot desert sands and eaten figs. I’ve stayed in 5-star hotels and in the palaces of kings. And I’ve enjoyed both experiences. I have homes all over the world and plenty of money, but I could live without any of it. It’s easy to make money. It’s the people I care about who are important. Okay, and my custom Harley. I do love my bike. It’s the closest thing there is to flying without having to unleash my wings.
What is your family like?
I have four half brothers I’ve never met and three men I’ve called brothers my entire life. We may not be related by blood, but they’re my family. I would die for them.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
I’m a drakon. Of course I can keep a secret. It’s what we do, who we are. Not many people know about us and we like to keep it that way.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For years, I wondered why my half brothers didn’t bother to look for me. I mean, they found one another but not me. First I was hurt. Then I was angry. Took me a few thousand years—okay four thousand—to get past it. I decided it was finally time to meet them. I concocted this entire elaborate plan. I was going to kill our greatest enemy and toss that in their face. Yeah, that plan didn’t exactly go as I thought it would.
What would you like to tell your writer?
You couldn’t make it easy, could you? After all my years of waiting, my fated mate had to be my greatest enemy. Only she can’t remember anything about her life. It messed me up for a while. I guess you had your reasons. And since I’m happy with the way things turned out, I’ll let you live.
