Know the Hero from The Last Dragon by Daryl Devore @DarylDevore #RLFblog #Medieval #Fantasy #RomanceDiscover a knight, a dragon, and ancient sorceress and a heart-breaking secret in Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance, The Last Dragon.

Daryl, 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 Last Dragon.

The Last Dragon by Daryl Devore

Genre Medieval Fantasy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.

A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.

Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his father’s kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child – dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.

Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.

Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.

Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?

Know the Hero from The Last Dragon

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

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

Orders wine and food then puts his feet up close to the fire and discusses politics with his father, the king.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Buy? He’s a prince. Food is ordered whenever he wishes to eat.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

A simple tunic and leggings, easier to train in than the awkward suit of armour and less pretentious than formal court attire.

Does he know how to fix things?

He can right a wrong. He can slay a demon. But, fix a broken wheel on a wagon or shoe his horse, he has no clue.

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

When he had lived 12 summers, the devil demon dragon, Arraydex, attacked and he grabbed his sword and attempted to fight it. Being too young and too weak, the dragon quickly bested him. He was saved by…spoiler – can’t tell you.

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

With proper court manners and compassion.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

When Hawkyns awakes, he is ready to face the challenges of a new day.

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

As a prince, he has courtly manners and is appropriate in every situation.

Valet or takes care of himself?

At the castle, he has a servant who looks after his needs. He is currently looking for a new squire to aid him in his duties as a knight.

Necktie/cravat or open shirt?

What is a shirt? He wears a tunic when training with the other knights.

Sleeves buttoned or rolled up?

In fancy court dress, there are buttons, but in his day to day wear his sleeves are rolled up to facilitate sparring or battle.

Powdered wig or natural hair?

Natural hair. Kept at proper length when at court, but often it is shaggier when he is away on long military campaigns.

Carriage or horseback?

Horseback on his faithful steed, Gladur.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.

The Christmas Ballet by Constance Bretes

Laura Hemmingway cut herself off from men and her family when the man she loved married her sister. She moved across the country and was doing just fine until she received a devastating call to return to New York. She had to face the death of her sister, her sister’s little girl, Maria, and Maria’s father, Stefan—the man she had once loved. She figured she would pay her respects and leave as soon as possible. She never anticipated on the beautiful little girl stealing her heart. And she never expected that seeing Stefan again after twelve years would stir up old feelings.
Stefan’s life was complete. He had a successful career as an attorney, a beautiful wife, and an adorable six-year-old daughter. Although he and his wife had been married in name only for the past several years, he cared for her deeply. Then her unexpected death brought him face-to-face with his former lover, and the guilt he’d carried for years.
Stefan is still in love with Laura and wants to give her everything she deserves. He and Maria are racing against time to convince Laura to stay with them in New York.
Can a little girl’s love, and the true magic of Christmas, help Stefan convince Laura to stay and give their relationship another chance?
