Know the Hero from Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman #RLFblog #Postapocalyptic #fantasy #SciFiAngelica Clyman, 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.

Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman

Genre Post-apocalyptic fantasy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings) R

The totality of a solar eclipse lasts only a few short minutes. That’s more than enough time for an apocalypse to erupt.
Almost eighteen years have passed since the Eclipse changed the Earth forever, and Sebastian Za’in rose from the chaos and seized control, imposing his order on the broken planet. In a world ruled by fear and superstition, where all gods have perished, there is no one who can stand up to Za’in, the man rumored to be one of the Nephilim—hybrid offspring of Angel and Man. In a few short months, another Eclipse will occur, and while there are those who expect a new natural disaster, Za’in has plans of his own.

Completely unaware of this global turmoil, Kayla Steelryn has spent most of her life in a quiet village, longing to uncover her hidden past. When she leaves her home in search of answers, she finds herself faced with the truth about her identity, forced to choose between the two men she loves, and thrust into a conflict where she alone has the power to stop an event more disastrous than the end of the world.


Know the Hero from Dominion of the Star

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

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

Jeremy is usually found brooding somewhere beneath the stars, whether it’s up on a water tower or down in the wastelands, he usually has something heavy on his mind.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He can’t afford to be picky in a world ravaged by disaster, but he hates slimy things in jars.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

The darker the better, but after the Ruiners become clamped to his arms, shirts are no longer an option!

Does he know how to fix things?

Jeremy is better at breaking things, but he can get by with very little.

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

What HASN’T gone badly? He was born under a bad sign and things have gone down from there, but he still can’t deny some of his problems are his own fault.

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

Jeremy doesn’t really have experience with any kids other than Kit, and she is no ordinary little girl…

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s used to getting up early, so he’s not any more irritable than usual (thankfully)!

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

He prefers that people don’t know the truth about him, but it’s been hard to escape. When he first met Kayla, she was blissfully unaware of his darkness and that drew him to her.

Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?

Jeremy’s not afraid to get his hands dirty!

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

The cross tattoo across his chest wasn’t his idea and he’d get rid of it if he could – but it was part of the deal if he wanted to become an Arch.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

He prefers to rely on himself, so things were better when he had his motorcycle. Sharing that truck with the pirates was definitely a low point…

Recycle or toss?

Toss – his world’s so messed up already, he doesn’t think such a small gesture would make a difference.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Gerall's Festivus Bride by Rebekah R Ganiere @VampWereZombie #RLFblog #NewRelease #FantasyRomance

Trees form a tunnel near to Palsjo Castle in Helsingborg, Sweden.

Rebekah R Ganiere, 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.

Gerall’s Festivus Bride by Rebekah R Ganiere

Genre Fantasy Romance /Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Not all nice guys finish last.

Gerall Gwyn has always been the kindest and gentlest Gwyn brother. Happy to take a backseat to his older and younger brothers boisterous personalities he’s content in the role of peacemaking diplomat. But when his family and their position as Lords of Westfall are threatened, Gerall is first in line to protect those he loves.

Eloa Lenter harbors a deadly secret. After two thugs almost kill her father, forcing him to go into hiding, she takes over the family business of running the Westfall bakery. In an effort to do more than simply scrape by, she uses every talent in her arsenal to make her pastries the best anyone has ever tasted- including using magick.

When Gerall meets the sweet and beautiful Eloa he knows that she’s the one he wants as his wife, but first he must get her to let him in. And when he discovers that some local thugs are extorting both her and other shop owners in town, he is determined to end the thefts.

But protecting Eloa as well as his family could cost both Gerall, and his brothers, more than just their stewardship over Westfall. It could cost them their lives.

Why did you write this book?

Gerall’s Festivus Bride is the seventh book in my Fairelle Series of Fairytale Retellings. The second book in the series is Snow the Vampire Slayer and she has 7 brothers. Each of her brothers is getting their own book. 2 are already in the series and this is the third. I wrote Gerall’s next because I love him as a character. He is gentle and loyal and smart. On the quiet side, but first in line to defend the right and stick up for the little guy.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love Fantasy. I also love Paranormal romance :)

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s a tough one because there are so many. Tanis and Tasslehoff from DragonLance. Jack from Pillars of the Earth. Loki and Hulk from the comics. Scarlet Witch.

What are you working on at the moment?

I have 3 books in my dystopian Vampire series that I am finishing up edits on to release in the next month. I am also working on the next Fairelle book as well as a Contemporary Christmas Romance.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Gerall’s Festivus Bride – Thursday the 19th.
Reign of the Vampires – Thursday the 26th
Rise of the Fae – Thursday Oct 3
Vengeance of the Demons – Thursday Oct 17th
Christmas Lodge – Thursday in Novemeber

When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she’s quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible.

The Highlander’s Welsh Bride by Cathy and DD MacRae

It was over. Prince Llywelyn was dead, his soldiers fleeing before King Edward’s army. Carys, a cousin to the prince, herself a princess of Wales, had picked up arms alongside her husband more than a year ago in the fight for Wales’s independence. Now homeless, her husband buried beneath the good Welsh soil, she seeks shelter in the north, far from the reach of Longshanks’s men.
Birk MacLean has been ordered to take a bride and produce an heir. He grows weary of the lasses paraded before him, women of delicate nature and selfish motives. He desires a wife strong enough to help lead one of the most powerful clans in Western Scotland.
One like the Welsh woman sitting in his dungeon, arrested for poaching MacLean deer.
Can Birk convince Carys marriage to him is preferable to a hangman’s noose? And will the hard-headed Scot be worthy of a Princess of Wales?
From the sweeping mountains of Wales where Prince Llywelyn made his last stand against the English, to the treacherous Isles of Scotland where Vikings and pirates rule the waters, comes a tale of betrayal and loss, deceit and passion. An epic tale of honor and the redeeming power of love.

Understanding Lara from In My Own Shadow, a new #Fantasy #romance by Susan A Royal #RLFblogSusan A Royal, 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.

Meet Lara

Age: early twenties

Gender: female

Birthplace: I’m a country girl, born and raised in a rural area.

Profession: Entry level clerical work

Ethnicity: White

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall. Nearly six feet. Dark blue eyes and long thick hair – the color red everyone seems to want these days.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Something about me seems to intimidate guys. Could be my sarcastic attitude. That’s what my friend, Carrie, seems to think. And she’s right. It’s my defense mechanism.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Never in a million years thought I’d fall for a guy like Rhys. Quiet, capable, keeps to himself. He takes his job seriously…even to the point of blaming himself when things go wrong, the way I did when Dad died. Only one problem. He treats me like an unwanted responsibility. Every time I try to get to know him better, he clams up and starts acting like commando man. And it goes downhill from there. I let him get under my skin..

What special skills do you rely on?

Lara and her father spent a lot of time in the woods while she was growing up. Hunting, camping, fishing.

What do you have a knack for doing?

Lara’s stubborn. She won’t give up on something she believes in.

Is she close to family?

Lara had no brothers or sisters, and her mother died when she was very young. She and her father were very close.

How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption?

In the book, her best friend Carrie refers to her as the redhead with a killer figure, and she’s spot on.

If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would she most want it to be, and why? OR who would she most NOT want it to be, and why?

Lara would give anything to see her father again. They argued just before he died and she’s never gotten over it.

Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?

Lara can keep a secret. Something important has been planted in her memory. She has no idea what it is, but she refuses to let someone pick her brain to find out. Especially someone who will use the information for all the wrong reasons.

What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?

Lara doesn’t realize how strong she really is.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

Lara needs to forgive herself. She’s not responsible for her father’s death.

What would help your character face hardship and meet any challenge?

If she knew how Rhys truly felt about her, she’d have the strength to do anything.

How does your character express disappointment?

She gets angry.

Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?

Rhys . Because Lara cares about him.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

I’m stubborn, sarcastic, determined. We have those traits in common

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?

I wish she hadn’t told anyone who I feel about Rhys. It’s embarrassing.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

I’m stronger than I thought.

What makes your writer the most sad?

It makes her sad to think me losing my father, but she’s happy that I came to terms with his death.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

She loves words and how they can paint a picture.

What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?

Cobal’s father is chieftain of the clan, and Cobal was supposed to follow in his footsteps until he realized his future lay in another direction.

New Fantasy: Destiny of a Warrior by Mary Morgan @m_morganauthor #RLFblog #NewRelease #FantasyRomanceMary Morgan, 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.

Destiny of a Warrior by Mary Morgan

Genre Fantasy Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
“You met him in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their greatest legend!”
As leader of the Fenian Warriors, Aidan Kerrigan’s accolades are many and his loyalty to the Fae unwavering. When an unexpected mission sends him to the human world and a chance encounter with Rose MacLaren, he’s tempted for the first time in his existence to discard duty and claim what is forbidden.
Rose MacLaren, a Society of the Thistle member, yearns to expand her botanical knowledge with her love of history. After her rescue by a handsome stranger, she is compelled to look beyond what her rational mind comprehends and unravel the secret of the standing stones, as well as the man who captivates her.
In a mystical world ruled by ancient laws and edicts, can a fierce warrior choose a path destined for love? And will a woman honoring the ways of the land believe in a myth only spoken of in legends? If they do, will their love be enough to defy death’s punishment?
Why did you write this book?
The great Aidan Kerrigan was a tale I feared to write. When he first appeared in the story, Dragon Knight’s Medallion, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 2, I panicked. I did not know he was a Fenian Warrior until he walked through the crowd of people at the airport to greet his daughter, Aileen. His presence loomed mighty and grew with the previous stories in the Legends of the Fenian Warriors. Regardless, I knew then that his and Rose’s love story had to be told.
With each Fenian Warrior’s story, I shared a layer about this Fae. Little did I know when I penned his first line of dialogue that he was the leader of the Fenian Warriors, came from royalty, and his sister was Queen of the Fae realm.
He chose not to reveal any of this to me. And this is why I became terrified. What more could he share? Well, dear readers, Aidan made it simple. He told me to write a love story, stating, “For you see, love is greater than all the power attained in the world—be it human or Fae.”
Therefore, I took you back in time to when he was the leader of the Brotherhood—Fenian Warriors. To when this great warrior had no blemish to stain his life and love tossed his world upside down.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical fiction and non-fiction novels.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jamie Fraser from Outlander.
What are you working on at the moment?
A new paranormal historical series set in medieval Scotland and the Orkney Islands.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
A medieval holiday romance. I’m returning to the Dragon Knights of Scotland (my first series) and Urquhart Castle.
