Arrested by Love by Kathryn R Blake

She broke the law to catch a police officer. Only he caught her first, and then put her over his knee.
Tiffany Morgan has been in love with Kyle Sinclair since she was ten years old. Now, eleven years later, Kyle, a patrol officer, is finding it difficult to maintain his distance from the irresistible and vivacious redhead who continues to invent ingenious ways to attract his interest. Though he dismissed her initial attraction as infatuation, as she grew-up, his own feelings of desire and protectiveness deepened. So, despite his constant struggle to resist the spirited little minx’s lures, Kyle has to finally admit that he is losing the battle–badly.
That is until Tiffany’s attention-seeking pranks escalate to the point of endangering her life.
Kyle is a firm supporter of law and order, and a man’s rightful dominion over the woman he loves. So, to make sure Tiffany understands and accepts his mastery when it comes to her safety and well-being, Kyle lays down the law, and his hand, with loving firmness. Tiffany will learn to obey, or else. Especially now that he’s decided she’ll be his wife.

But when she finally plucks up the courage to talk to him, and the lines blur between fantasy and reality, is she ready to make the ultimate sacrifice?

Alien Alphas by Cynthia Sax and Friends @CynthiaSax #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceBattle Of The Sexes – Literally, By Cynthia Sax

In Dark Warlord, my story in the awesome Alien Alphas box set, my heroine fights my hero in a very sexy gladiator-style battle. Real blows are landed. Blood is spilled. It is human vs modified humanoid, warrior vs warrior, female vs male.

I remember, when I was younger, a battle like that would rarely happen in books or movies. Males fought males. Females rarely fought at all and when they did, they normally faced other females. I can’t remember a hero ever landing a blow on a female in battle. Heroes shielded a female from harm, even enemy females.

Which was a bit silly. In battle, there’s often no time to determine the sex of the person attacking you. War is chaotic and fast moving. There’s dirt and guck and smoke in the air. If warriors are using guns and more modern weapons, there’s distance between adversaries. All of this makes it challenging merely to distinguish between friend and foe.

When warriors see the enemy, they defend themselves and they counterattack. That’s how they stay alive. They don’t think about whether the enemy has male bits or female bits.

In Dark Warlord, Batu, our barbarian hero, knows exactly whom he is facing in battle. Genine, his opponent, is his gerel, the one being genetically compatible with him. The Warlord wants her, desiring the female more than he has ever desired anything or anyone. She WILL be his.

But he also knows she’s a skilled warrior, capable of holding her own. Genine has spent her lifespan fighting enemies, waging war, defending the innocent. She wields her sword as though it was an extension of herself. If Batu were human, she could likely defeat him.

The crowd is expecting a real battle with blood and pain and, if they’re lucky, death. They will punish both the winner and the loser harshly if they don’t get the show they’re anticipating. Batu and Genine’s confrontation will be sexy and fierce, testing their skills and their control. One wrong move and one of them could die.

What is the best male vs female battle you’ve ever seen on the screen or read in a book? Do you find it as sexy as I do? (grins)

Stressing Orol from Dark Flight @CynthiaSax #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceToday we’re reading about Orol from Dark Flight by Cynthia Sax. Tell us about your book.

His mission. His challenge. His forever.

Orol, the Refuge’s second-in-command, has been given what he believes is a simple mission—escort two human females to the settlement. The winged warrior arrives at the meeting site to find one of the females missing and the other aiming a gun at his head. To rescue the first, he must capture the second. Once he has Rhea in his talons, however, he realizes he never wants to let her go.

Her enemy. Her captor. Her everything.

Rhea doesn’t trust anyone. She certainly doesn’t follow commands issued by a gorgeous flying male with glittering eyes, a beautiful face, and a seductive touch. Orol is dominant, edged with darkness, and determined to find her sister. Rhea will do anything to prevent that, even if it means playing sensual games of submission with her powerful enemy, seducing him into forgetting everything except her.

Dark Flight is a stand-alone Sci Fi Romance set in a gritty, dark world.

Stressing Orol

Every hero has a story. He has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a hero and get to know him better, by focusing on how he handles being relaxed, as well as how he handles stress.

Birthplace: In a Humanoid Alliance laboratory
Profession: Genetically designed to kill
Ethnicity: Half Human, Half Oberon Flying Death
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Modified Humanoid

The Hero’s Relaxed Side

This hero is at a party. Considering his story, describe the party.
Orol is surrounded by the top warriors in the universe. There’s a melee. The last being standing wins. They’re given their choice of any blade. Orol chooses to use his talons.
How does the hero feel about being this particular party, and what body language is he displaying that gives it away?
Orol LOVES to fight and is excited to be at this party. His talons are extended. His wings are spread. He will keep his feet on the floor to give the other party-goers a chance.
Is he more likely to mingle or remain aloof?
He searches out beings to fight, giving each of them a rough time before engaging.
If he drinks, what is his drink of choice at this party?
He seldom drinks and never when he’s fighting.
How much drink is his usual?
During breaks,he sips any beverage he’s given, taunting other party-goers.
The hero figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?
Orol goes there to avoid Scales, a friend of his. He has agreed to never fight him.
Is he likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is he the friend that others latch onto?
He prefers to fight alone but will compete with friends for the most kills.
If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the hero going to handle it?
This party is one big fight and Orol is right in the middle of it.
Is the hero the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?
He’s not leaving until he wants to leave and he won’t want to leave until all of the fighting is done.
Will he know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of himself?
When the fighting is done, he’s leaving.

The Hero’s Stressed Out Side

How does the hero handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls him aside when he was blameless in a situation?
Orol will make a joke and walk away.
How does the hero react to hearing a scream?
Orol will fly to investigate.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses his mind?
Protect.
If he sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing he does?
Stand between the abuser and his victim, using his body to shield the victim.
This hero attempts to rescue someone and realizes that he is in over his head. The odds are against him and there is no way out. He is going to get his butt handed to him. What does he do?
Orol calls Balvan or one of his other brethren for help. If help doesn’t come, well, he’s a warrior. All warriors eventually die in battle. He has accepted that.
The hero runs into the one person from his past he wanted to avoid. He can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does he do?
He makes jokes and acts as though there was never any conflict between them.
Someone younger than the hero is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the hero deal with it?
As long as the situation won’t kill anyone, he lets the being bungle things. Sometimes you need to fall on your a$$ to learn how to stand on your feet.
The hero is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does he tell himself in order to get through the situation?
He has been through worse…. And, unfortunately, he has.
What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?
Kralj is the closest Orol has to a mentor.
What lesson from his past gets him through a stressful situation?
Every situation is survivable.
