Dark Chocolate and Strawberries by Daryl Devore @daryldevore #RLFblog #twistedfairytaleDaryl Devore, 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.

Dark Chocolate and Strawberries by Daryl Devore

Genre – Twisted Fairy Tale Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

What’s a naughty fairy tale like Red Riding Hood without Red, the huntsman, grandma and especially, the big bad wolf?

Esmerelda ‘Red’ Hood is summoned to her mother’s executive suite only to learn her sweet granny is headed for a romantic cruise with a gigolo. Horrified, Red races off to save her grandma before it’s too late.

On board, Red meets Andrew Woodsman and Willem Olf. One a cutie with the biggest puppy eyes and the other a dark, sophisticated predator. Her grandmother’s warning rings in Red’s ear “Never trust a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Even with the warning, Red has trouble choosing which man could be the big bad wolf and which could be her happily ever after.

Note: This book was previously published by New Dawning Bookfair under the title Sexy Red Hood.

What’s your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?

#WritingCommunity. I’ve met a lot of interesting and fun authors. It’s great to discover I am not alone in the troubles of the writing life.

Describe the perfect vacation.

Anything by the beach. My motto is Sun, Sea and Sand. I could spend days just sitting staring out at the water. It is a Zen thing. I find it very grounding. My mind goes quiet and I feel at total peace. I used this concept in a book when my hero was severely depressed he sought out the beach to help him recover.

What are your hobbies?

I love to bake and cook and attached to that would be watch cooking shows, like the Great British Bakeoff. Yoga. I do as many classes as I can fit in a week. Raqs Sharqi. It is the traditional style of belly dance. And in the summer, I garden. I have large flower beds – which constantly need weeding. Also, a vegetable patch, but I see, to be feeding the local wildlife more than my family

When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?

Old British mysteries – Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. When asked who is my favourite, I am torn between Christie and Sayers. The characters and settings pull you deep into the story.

What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?

Since some of my books are super-hot, I’ve visited some very “interesting” websites. For my next book, a medieval romance, I’ve spent a lot of time researching dragons, dragon lore, life of a peasant, royal life, medieval castles and a touch of research about fantasy.

Know the Hero from Branwyn's Love by Daryl Devore @daryldevore #RLFblog #medievalromanceDaryl Devore, 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.

Branwyn’s Love by Daryl Devore

Genre medieval erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Daryl Devore pens another hot read – the medieval romance -Branwyn’s Love.

The tale of a young woman sold as a courtesan in training. Branwyn arrives in a new land to begin daily lessons in the bewildering art of bedding a man.

The noblewoman chosen to be Prince Malacke’s bride rejects him by bedding his hated rival. Malacke turns his anger towards increasing the power and wealth of Black Dorn castle. And he succeeds until his attention is captured by the face of the woman who will be his queen.

Note: This book contains elements of domination, submission, and fetishes. If these concepts disturb you, please do not purchase or read this book. Branwyn’s Love was formerly known as Black Dorn and published by New Dawning.

Know the Hero from Branwyn’s Love

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Finds a woman to bed.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Malacke is a medieval prince. He does not “buy” food.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

His riding breeches. Being out with his horse, strolling along a stream or charging through a field are places he would much rather be than in the Royal Court.

Does he know how to fix things?

Political things he can fix. A rebel army trying to invade is father’s kingdom – Malacke would lead the army in the charge to defend the castle. If a strap on his saddle broke or his sword was damaged, he would be at a loss of how to fix it.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Being a dutiful prince, he courted a lady-of-the-court. She was from a proper family with a long and noble bloodline. At the moment he was willing to request her hand in marriage, she bedded his hated rival. The humiliation was overwhelming and he closed himself off to love.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He is as uncomfortable around children he doesn’t as he is around children he knows. They are kept out of the royal court, so he has had little experience dealing with them.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

A dragon would be cuddlier than he.

How does he handle things when in a “proper” social situation?

In a proper court fashion – socially correct on all points with a touch of Malacke arrogance.

Valet or takes care of himself?

Both. He has a serving boy – Duncan. But Duncan is smart enough to know those days when it is best that he allow his master – Prince Malacke – to do things for himself.

Necktie/cravat or open shirt?

As he knows not what a necktie or a cravat is, he would reply – open shirt.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

When in court, Malacke dresses formally – therefore buttoned sleeves. But when freed from the duties of court – his sleeves would be rolled up – if he were wearing a shirt.

Powdered wig or natural hair?

Natural Hair.

Carriage or horseback?

Seated tall on a proud stallion.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Is It True: Love My Fate by Daryl Devore @daryldevore #RLFblog #UrbanFantasyWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Daryl Devore, author of Love My Fate, an Urban Fantasy. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Love My Fate by Daryl Devore

Genre Urban Fantasy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
What’s a woman to do when a voice follows her home and makes mad, passionate love to her?
Daryl Devoré’s latest is a quirky paranormal urban fantasy – Love My Fate.
Corporate businesswoman, Capricious Gray, is dragged to a sex toy convention by her best friend. After a mysterious disembodied voice helps her with her purchases, it follows her home. Passion ensues, leaving Capri torn between lust for her fantasy lover and the desperate need for reality in her life.
Thall, son of one of the Fates, harbours the irrepressible need to be with the woman he’s desired from afar for years. In order to make her his, once and for all, he must help Capri get past her fears, including the fear of what he represents – a fantasy.
Can fantasy become a reality for these two lovers?
Note: This book was previously published by New Dawning Bookfair under the title Capri’s Fate. The edition has a new title, new cover and has restored previously deleted scenes.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. It was my 4th.
this book is part of a series?
No.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No.
you did research for this book?
Yes! I’ve never been to a sex toy convention and I had to research the products they sold.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. The hero isn’t human. He is the son of a Fate.
this book has more than one genre?
No. I’m not even sure what genre it is, so I took a stab at urban fantasy
you speak more than one language?
Sort of. I’m Canadian and while we all aren’t bilingual (English/French) I can hold my own when in Quebec.
you grew up where you live now?
No. Pretty much the exact opposite end of the province.
you love to read?
Of course. I have the complete works of several of my favourite authors.
you are never late?
Never is such a strong word. I try not to be late. I really do try, but sometimes time just gets away from me.
you love pizza?
Yes. I saw a meme – Stop stressing. You can’t please everybody. You’re not pizza.
you love sushi?
Like is a better word. I just discovered it a few months ago.
you have a pet?
Yes. 2 black cats – Licorice and Ginny-fur Purrkins (my husband named her).
