Civility, last of the To Be Sinclair series by Eva Caye @evacaye #RLFblog #scifi #romanceEva Caye, 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.

Civility, a science fiction romance by Eva Caye

Genre science fiction romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Captain Princess Alea Sinclair is tasked by the Emperor to be her aunt Elizabeth’s lady-in-waiting, i.e. bodyguard, on their trip to the Attican Empire to rewrite their $2 trillion treaty. Behind the scenes, health issues and a cruel commanding officer make their private lives hell while they strive to maintain their public image of competence. And their stated mission isn’t the only one; they must also find out what they can about an intelligent alien species the Atticans have found on a nearby planet.
They act like simple pets, but due to their hypnotic mental influence, Elizabeth falls for Alea’s scorned C.O. while Alea and her two new Attican friends strive desperately to understand the wily chalates. How can Alea determine the intent and the extent of the aliens’ influence upon Elizabeth, the most brilliant social analyst and diplomat of the Sinclair Demesnes, before they ruin the renegotiation of this critical treaty?
This is the final volume of the To Be Sinclair series. This novel contains sexual situations.
Why did you write this book?
I had to write at least one romance with an aging female character. Elizabeth is 57 years old and going through menopause. Her 25-year-old niece Alea is chosen as Elizabeth’s lady-in-waiting, and their assignment is to negotiate with the Attican Empire. Since it’s the finale of the series, I had to bring in several beloved secondary characters as well as try to resolve the issues between two enemy empires.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love science fiction, but I also sometimes read mystical books. The two aren’t very different from each other in many cases!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I adore Dorothea Macdonald from Julian May’s final two books, Diamond Mask and Magnificat. I think super-intelligent people make up their own rules for ‘acceptable’ behavior, and this sweet child grows up to be classy yet doesn’t take any crap from anybody.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve been working on my prequels, but for some reason a couple of short stories are pestering me to be written. One is unrelated to the series, but the other is a character in my series that I think I’ll just put out on my blog as a free read someday.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
First, I need to get Embracing the Goddess out. It was the first book I wrote and it’s been sitting around for several years, now, waiting on me to fine-tune it. Then, I have a second prequel, Undying Dawn, and a third book in the Sinclair universe but different from those called Arrow of Fate. They’re all structured around significant developments humankind will make in the future, such as gestation chambers and new modes of communication.

Fidelity by Eva Caye @EvaCaye #RLFblog #SciFi #scifiromance Today’s featured book is Fidelity by Eva Caye. Tell us about your story. We’ll have other questions in a moment.

Prince Richard Sinclair is his brother’s right-hand-man and go-to guy, who excels as the Emperor’s Fireman because he can’t deal with his personal life. He only plays the Imperial Bad Boy because that’s what makes the dukes respect him, despite his age, intelligence, education, and birthright. Delightfully intrigued by Lady Meredith Lauder, his virtual Cinderella, he rescues her from her burdensome family life at the first opportunity.

Scarred by ridicule and neglect, Merry gleefully abandons her family, but she feels she has to work at the Imperial Palace to compensate for Richard’s generosity. Even as he entices her to his bed, she believes she’s being true to her core principles, to never be dependent upon a man, and to pursue a relationship of equals.

But when the Emperor disappears, they realize just how fragile their world really is, both personally and politically. Richard desperately throws himself into governing as Imperial Steward while demanding that everyone search for Matthieu. And Merry plays the part of the ‘supportive girlfriend’ in his hour of need… until two men jeopardize the emotional balance they’ve gained in their lives.

How can Prince Richard deal with the frightful political situation without losing his lover?

This book contains sexual situations.

What languages are spoken in your story universe?
‘Standard’, which is basically English, is used throughout the galaxy, although individual worlds based on unique cultures tend to retain a lot of their native language. Since Standard is the only ‘world-wide’ language at the start of the Space Era, everyone recognizes it must be used to deal with people from every planet.
In the culture of your story world, what is different from ours?
Royals are derived from the 50 original duchies created by King Kyan Sinclair, the ‘owner’ of the planet Sinclair Demesne who selected his colonists following the guidelines of a charter. A few duchies have come and gone, but the names remain principally the same. A ‘High Royal’ refers to children or grandchildren of a duke; ‘Low Royals’ refer to themselves by how many generations they are removed from High Royals, i.e. first-gen, third-gen.
Since commoners have populated the other three planets in the Empire, also known in the plural as the Sinclair Demesnes, the few Royals on those planets tend to be assigned there for a length of time before being recalled. Emperor Victor establishes his son Phillip as the first Imperial High Governor of Rendel, and Emperor Matthieu’s generation sees the first Viceroy of Marabelle, his brother Theo, who expands the Empire through three active planetary volumes accessible through natural wormholes.
What rights (such as equality) are challenges for your characters?
Women’s rights are guaranteed, but their traditions are so strong that almost no one breaks out of the ‘typical feminine role’. The first book of my series, Dignity, began challenging that narrative, featuring a female scientist; its companion novel, Majesty, wrestles with the issue directly and through long-lasting conflicts.
Describe one of the worlds where your story takes place.
Sinclair Demesne is the capital of the Empire of Sinclair Demesnes, a four-planet polity that maneuvers to become the premier trade and political empire in the galaxy. The enormous wealth of Empress Felice’s stargates is used to establish and maintain the Galactic Assembly, and she makes plans to further the Empire via the three habitable planets beyond Marabelle. Their population has had the advantage of living on the planet with the closest-to-Terran habitability ever found, and although most traditions are conservative, the overall mindset of the Imperial Family is progressive.
Tell us about the age of the culture in your story, i.e., are the people part of an ancient civilization, a newly formed group within an established culture, pioneer colonists, etc.
Sinclair Demesne belonged to billionaire scientist Kyan Sinclair, who selected the dukes who would populate their own colonies. This occurred in 102 S.E. (Space Era), although the Empire grew to prominence with the marriage of Emperor Victor to Empress Felice in 572 S.E. Primarily European in descent, the population nevertheless had dukes from most of the cultures of Terra, and twenty generations of intermarriages between fifty-one ruling families serve to connect the planet through its capital, the Sinclair Urban District.
What food or drink is available to your characters?
The majority of foods are the same, derived from seeds and stock brought to Sinclair Demesne from Terra. Demesnian flora (carbs and simple proteins) has been well-adapted to their diets, with a small number of Demesnian fauna species (complex proteins) adapted for human consumption. They import a lot of their luxury foods and use a minimum amount of grains – their desserts tend to be fruit and cream confections instead of wheat-based – and they’ve always had active horticultural breeding programs.
When you researched for your story setting, what kinds of things did you learn?
I’m currently working on two prequels, one of which describes Kyan Sinclair’s process in setting up his new planet. As a result, I’ve learned to build rocket stoves and use adobe, I’ve researched major construction projects such as steel foundries, and my math and chemistry skills have gotten a workout while calculating the practicalities of moving 122,000 people to a new planet!

Presenting Nobility
Eva Caye, welcome back to Romance Lives Forever. Please tell
us about your new book, Presenting Nobility.
Presenting Nobility, the seventh novel in the To Be Sinclair
series of science fiction romances! The Heir Second thoroughly enjoys his privileges,
but he must also teach and learn the responsibilities of authority. Driven to be
worthy of his political power, Matthieu nevertheless suffers unimaginable losses
while performing his Imperial duties and trying to find a lady worthy of being his
Empress someday…
Published June 30, 2013
Length: 200,000 + words
Blurb:
Ever since he was six and witnessed the destruction of the old
Palace, Prince Matthieu Sinclair has honed himself — mind, body, and spirit —
until he is about as perfect a human being as has ever existed. However, as second
in line to the throne, his duties are so extensive that to find a lady worthy of
being his Empress someday seems like a hopeless task.
His grandparents Emperor Victor and Empress Felice Sinclair recognize
the depth and extent of his talents, asking him to establish the Imperial Protocol Academy
for the numerous Imperial grandchildren. He must also take space duty on the ultra-secret
prototype courier vessel designed by the stargate scientists. As the socialites
circling him begin looking more and more like sharks, Matthieu and his brother Theo
look for ways to find ladies who could help them with their demanding lives.
When complications involving the ongoing reparations strategy
by the Attican Empire evolve, Matthieu must leave his ladies more than once to oversee
critical developments in person. Even Miriel Makov, the one lady he has found who
could possibly take up the demanding position of Empress, abandons him in their
darkest hour. If he is too busy to find a wife now, how will he ever be able to
do so when he is the Emperor?
Above all, when the going gets tough, the only two truths Matthieu
can stand upon are that the Imperial Family’s needs come before his own, and that
no knowledge is worthless. Using his vast array of skills, from piloting to matrixing
to boxing off corners of his mind, a technique drilled into him for a deep-cover
assignment, Matthieu has to face the dreaded opponent of his childhood: the Attican
Empire!
This science fiction romance is the seventh book of the eight-part
To Be Sinclair series. Several scenes describe sexually explicit behavior.
Available in ePub, mobi, PDF, and other formats.
The To Be Sinclair series can be found at Amazon and Smashwords,
including an ‘add-on’ novel, Evan’s Ladies, consisting of four novellas.
The To Be Sinclair Series

About the Author

A health crisis inspired Eva Caye to become an obsessive writer,
completing eight books in her To Be Sinclair series before she could afford an editor.
She published Dignity in August 2012, and her 8th book Nobility in late June 2013.
She laughingly refers to Evan’s Ladies as Book 6.5, an ‘add-on’ book to the series
since it consists of four novellas. The other seven books are full novels, though
most have ‘Easter egg’ short stories as bonuses for the reader.
The To Be Sinclair series is set some 600 years in the future
and covers the lives and loves of the greatest ruling family in the galaxy. Her
current works-in-progress are a finale to the series, and two prequels set in the
TBS universe about 100 years in the future.
Eva lives with her incredibly supportive husband and two lovely
mutts in a tiny, century-old farmhouse in Louisville,
Kentucky.
