Daughter of the Twin Moons (Twin Moons Saga 1) by Holly BargoHolly Bargo read her new book on #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

Cancer. The terminal diagnosis paralyzes Catriona. Both saved and imperiled, she must navigate a new, immortal life as mate to the Captain of the Seelie Palace Guard.
In obedience to the oracle’s command, Thelan abducts a human woman and takes her to the Deepwood where she is unmade and remade by ancient magic. Thus given his mate, he quickly finds himself enamored of her spirit, intelligence, and uncommon beauty. She arouses his passion and challenges both his control and authority at every turn. Thelan needs to win the heart and trust of this untraditional female whom he’s determined to keep and protect from those who covet control over the moon-born’s legendary influence.
Catriona resents the lack of choice. She also resents not knowing the rules that now govern her life in this realm of myth and impossibility. Forging her own path and upsetting ancient tradition, she befriends the mysterious archivist, learns to live in a sentient palace, talks to dragons, and discovers a puzzling attraction to cats. And she must come to terms with the handsome and powerful fae male who claims her as his own and stirs her blood like none other.

Lisa Logan read her new book on #FreeBookFriday #RLFblogVisions by Lisa Logan

Actor Trenton Dane is researching his next role when he bumps into a beautiful stranger–and suddenly develops her psychic powers. When she disappears in the crowd, he must search for the woman who invades his dreams.
Single mom Glory Windsor would rather hide from the man who reawakened the “gift” she thought was buried. Trenton must help her overcome her reluctance to fulfill premonitions of their future as well as to save Glory and her child from danger…but he will fail at one of these tasks.

Livia Quinn read her new book on #FreeBookFriday #RLFblogStorm Crazy by Livia Quinn

Welcome to Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…
I’m Sheriff Jack Lang. After an exciting career as a Navy pilot, Destiny seemed like the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But that ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy – sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. Tempe never fails to test the limits of my patience or the law. Every time I think it’s the last straw, up pops another haystack.
My name is Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. I’m also a Paramortal like my family, or I’m supposed to be. If I didn’t have a few little talents, I’d think I was adopted. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. My brother’s genie bottle is missing, my mother’s AWOL, and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim over a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. I’ve denied my heritage for most of my life but all this chaos is a sign of my quickening Tempestaerie power.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thinks he’s settled in a normal, quaint small town–like Mayberry?! We’ll see how that turns out… Things better settle down soon, ’cause I’m about to go…Storm Crazy.

Garden of Serenity by Nina Pierce

What would you do if the one thing you thought you’d never need becomes the very thing you can’t live without?
The human population of the 23rd century is dying. Mating with a male–even to fulfill the ancient law of procreation–is a distasteful task and one Healer, Jahara Khateri has successfully avoided … until now. Brenimyn is a gifted breeding instructor at the Garden of Serenity. Enslaved by the government and forced to submit to all females who request his services, he lives to find the one woman strong enough to fulfill his destiny and help him bring about social equality for all people. When the government finds their blossoming relationship a threat to their hierarchy, they will stop at nothing to keep these two revolutionaries from succeeding.

Determined Prince: A Qurilixen World Novel (Captured by a Dragon-Shifter Book 1) Michelle M Pillow

Find a new read with Michelle M Pillow #RLFblog #FreeBookFriday #SciFiDragon-shifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates—so much so they’re taking matters into their own hands. What better place to find a woman than Earth? After all, dragon-shifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself.

Welcome Connor Matasan from The Dragon Wore a Kilt, a new paranormal romance by Holly Bargo.

Connor Matasan

Age: 96
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Glencarol, Scotland
Profession: Farmer
Ethnicity: Scottish
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): sith
Please provide a physical description.
I suppose I resemble the typical romantic hero, tall and dark-haired. The ladies of Glencarol have liked the looks of the men in my family for centuries and I’m no exception.
Please tell us a little about your character.
I’m the earl of Matasan, but due to my being sith, the title passed to my great-nephew, Liam. As an immortal sith, converted from human by the ancient magic of Saroach who lives in the loch, I live a lonely life and guard the loch and the dragon from discovery. I’ve yet to figure out what the dragon actually does for us, but I’m bound to his will.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Lila is my mate, given to me by Saroach. She’s perfect, amazing, talented, and too damned independent for my comfort. She’s mine.
How does your hero dress?
I prefer to wear the native dress of my people, a kilt. They’re comfortable, you know. And I look damned good in one.
Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
The earls of Matasan own a large property and live comfortably, but we’re typical of our Scottish kin in that we’re not wasteful or extravagant. My great-nephew Liam is a financial genius; I focus more on the agricultural operations of our estate.
Is he close to family?
Family is everything, whether that family is related by blood or magic. I will protect them all and they will do the same for me.
Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?
My existence itself is an open secret. The village of Glencarol knows something us Matasans, even if they’re not really privy to our secrets.
What is your hero’s biggest personal flaw?
If you asked Lila, she would say my biggest flaw is arrogance. It’s true, I’m arrogant as has been every earl of Matasan. My will is law and no one but Lila ever defied me.
What is your hero’s breaking point?
I was captured by a witch who wanted to take my immortality and power for herself. She treated me much the same as I treated Lila and the realization broke me. I needed her forgiveness to restore me and it made me a better man… and a better mate for my beloved Lila.
What happened to cause Lila to leave you?
I can only say that I… devolved. Something about the dragon’s nature overwhelming my humanity caused me to treat her badly. Although, I can’t really blame the dragon nature, because Saroach was disappointed in me, too.

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.
Why do you think Holly Bargo chose to write about you?
I sought understanding and redemption. And I think the writer wishes men were, perhaps, a little like me, too.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
My writer held true to her principles. I could not charm her and she portrayed me as I was. That stung.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
My writer loves men who are truly masculine, not male versions of women, but men who complement women and are strong enough to accept a strong woman.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
I want my writer to tackle Robbie’s story. My philandering sith brother needs a mate of his own, he needs someone to love and who will love him, too.
