Play Is It True with today’s guest Livia Quinn, author of Blame it on the Moon, an Urban Fantasy. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

 

First, tell us about your book.

Destiny – is it Mayberry or Middle Earth?

It’s the height of the Para-moon and Sheriff Jack Lang is up to his ‘6’ in alligators. Defending those weaker than himself is in his DNA which is what drove him to become a Navy pilot. But who is he kidding? Alligators he could handle! But supernatural bad guys? Ragtag doesn’t begin to describe his band of temporary ‘heroes’. If he has to go to war with the group that showed up at dawn, he might as well start cutting up white sheets and attaching them to garden stakes.

With Tempe and the other Paramortals ill or incapacitated and the sudden appearance of beings he’s never heard of, will Jack be able to keep Destiny out of the hands of their enemies for the rest of the power down an–very important–keep the humans in the dark?

It’s only twenty-four hours. If worse comes to worse, he has a dragon on his side and a few surprises up his sleeve. “Yippe, ki, yi…”

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours and things don’t always go as planned.

Storm Lake Boxed Set by Livia Quinn @liviaquinn #RLFblog #paranormalToday’s featured book is the Storm Lake boxed set, a paranormal by Livia Quinn.

Welcome to Destiny, or should I say, Middle Earth?

I took the Sheriff position in Destiny thinking it a quaint, safe, normal small town – like Mayberry, but that ship sailed after I met Tempest Pomeroy – trouble magnet, storm witch, daughter of a Djinn and Tempestaerie, friend to dragons, fae, witches, and vampires.

Holy… to say my life had gone FUBAR was like saying Wolverine’s fingernails were long enough for a manicure. For a man who prided himself on being in control, never confronting a situation I couldn’t handle, suddenly I was face to face with my own delusions.

I may have thought that was the last straw. But there was always another haystack.

Meet Sheriff Jack Lang from Take These Broken Wings by Livia Quinn.

About the Book

Title Take These Broken Wings, Destiny Paramortals, Book 5
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Destiny. Is it Mayberry or Middle Earth?
Jack Lang knows first hand about Destiny’s secrets. Turns out he was one of them. On Mardi Gras Eve he and his unlikely band of heroes defeated some particularly nasty creatures intent on taking advantage of the Paramortals’ vulnerability during the Chaos. They called it Chaos because the word “Armageddon” was already taken. Destiny survived with the help of their dragon and some special friends, then Jack received the biggest shocks of his life. And that was saying a lot.
He’d chosen this town the year before for the normalcy and safety it could provide his teenager after a life of upheaval with his ex. He’d been looking for Mayberry. Instead he’d found, not a town, but a world full of magical beings, odd occurrences, and scary creatures. There’d been one shock after another and yet, instead of leaving and taking Jordie somewhere “safe”… he’d stayed.
Now he suspected he felt the pull of this special place long before he’d known it existed. But that hadn’t been the only reason. It had all begun the first time he’d seen Tempest Pomeroy. That was when his world had turned upside down—along with half the town. He’d surprised himself with his acceptance of the supernatural. He’d even almost accepted this latest blow, but that had been before he found out he no longer belonged anywhere. Not with humans, and not among supernaturals. Something had gone haywire in his family DNA.
Now he’s abandoned the women in his life, his responsibilities–everything except for the need to quench the gnawing hunger in his gut and this compulsion to jump off the highest levees in the parish. He was just sorry there were no mountains in Louisiana.

Introducing Sheriff Jack Lang

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Thanks, it’s good to be here. I’m Jack Lang, thirty-three, former Navy pilot, now Sheriff of Destiny, Louisiana. I have a spunky, beautiful fifteen year old daughter named Jordie.
Ethnicity/Species (if not human):
Hmm, great question, actually. I always thought I was human, or maybe I still am, in addition to being a dragon. I guess you could say things are in “transition”.
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars:
I used to be around 6′ 2″, dark complected, brown hair and green eyes but I’ve gotten taller and more muscular recently. When I shift, I turn into a big sparkly dragon with silver eyes.
Who is your significant other.
Five months ago, I would have told you it was Tempe. Now, I could be in the dog…er…  dragon house…cave. My life has kinda gone FUBAR.
Tell us a little about yourself.
After getting full custody of my daughter, my parents suggested I run for sheriff in Destiny. I figured it would be the perfect (normal) place to recover from the craziness of our life with my ex, Georgeanne.
I was wrong.
Please tell us about your education.
I signed up for the U.S. Navy as soon as I graduated and within two years was doing what I always wanted to do. Fly. I knew the Navy would supply everything I desired – travel, education, a career and women. I figured those would be the most important things in my life. Then my daughter Jordie came along.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I live simply because nothing matters but keeping Jordie safe and providing for her needs, but that hasn’t been simple. Nothing’s simple when it comes to G-Crazy.
On what special skills do you rely?
Until recently, the only special skill I had was flying, but then I was blindsided with this quickening thing and now I can’t even do that.
Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
Definitely embarrassment. This new form I’ve taken on, though it’s not exactly a skill, well, I should have more control over it. When Conor shifts he morphs into an awesome dragon knight with these giant swords strapped to his shoulders. Me? I just wind up naked as a jaybird. And what good is a dragon that can’t breathe fire, or fly? Embarrassing is not the word.
How do you dress?
Nothing exciting. I wear a sheriff’s uniform, unless I’ve just shifted, then… see the previous question.
How well do you know your neighbors?
Ha! Neighbors. Is that a euphemism for crazy supernaturals? Cause that’s what my town is all about. I know a heck of a lot more now that I did six months ago when I moved here thinking it was a quaint, ordinary town for Jordie. Seriously, I was thinking “Mayberry”. But instead, I found Middle Earth.
What is your breaking point?
I didn’t think I had one, until I met Tempest Pomeroy and the citizens of Destiny.
But that was then… now, I think I overestimated my own resilience, and possibly my mental stability.
Do you see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Black and white was the old Jack. Things were so much simpler then; now it seems I see nothing but gray. I’m having a hard time with change, and my relationships with Tempe and my daughter are suffering. If I don’t get it together soon, I’m going to lose everything.

Storm Crazy, A Storm Lake Novel

Title Storm Crazy
Genre Paranormal
Author Livia Quinn
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
I’m Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. First, River’s amphora went missing—that’s genie bottle to you mere-mortals. I know— the names right? We were just lucky we didn’t end up as Black Cloud and Little Sprinkle. Or Flash and Flood. With my hair, I’d have been Flash. I’m also a Paramortal like the rest of my family. Or I’m supposed to be. If it wasn’t for a few little talents I’d think I was adopted.
On my first delivery, a scantily clad doctor triggered a hallucination when we touched. Pheromones? An old trouble-maker had a stroke but I saved the old fart with a zap of my Zeus juice! It was the first time I’d actually called my power on purpose, and our hunky new sheriff almost saw me use my magic—big no-no. He showed up again when the owner of Flowers by Dick complained that I’d dropped a seventy-five pound box on his foot. Yeah, I did, but it was an accident. He put his hand on my butt and my hands sorta… slipped. Then things really went downhill.
I discovered a dead body while rescuing River’s bottle from a locker as the sheriff arrived again. Now, my brother’s missing, my mother’s AWOL and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim on a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. Aurora says all this chaos is a sign of my quickening power and things are only going to get worse.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thought he’d settled in a normal small town to raise his teenage daughter. Like Mayberrry. We’ll see how that turns out. Things had better settle down soon, ‘cause I’m about to go Storm Crazy.
