Mermaids Marry in Green by Alice Renaud

Genre Fantasy Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Caltha Dooran is the toughest, fiercest shape-shifting mermaid in the western seas. She has three Clans to rule, and no time for romance. But when a warlock, Jonty, turns up and asks her to come with him to London to capture a water monster, she can’t say no. In London, away from her duties, her attraction for Jonty grows… and they soon fall under each other’s spell. But will his past and her responsibilities pull them apart, or can they find the only true magic, the one that binds two souls together?

Know the Hero, Jonty, from Mermaids Marry in Green

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

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

In the past, he would have cast some spells to pass the time, perhaps conjured up a spirit in the shape of a talking animal to have a chat. But now he has given up magic, so he’d probably go for a walk in the dark.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Burger and chips. He grew up on a farm and loves red meat, but only if it comes from animals who have been well treated.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Battered leather trousers and jacket, T-shirt, boots. Tough, workaday clothes, that won’t show dirt or blood. Being a warlock, even a retired one, can be a messy business.

Does he know how to fix things?

Yes. In the past he would use magic, but he can fix many things even without spells… except his life.

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

He challenged a trio of hags to impress the woman he loved. It went wrong, the hags killed and ate her. He has lived with the guilt ever since.

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

He loves children and is comfortable around them. He’ll play with them and teach them stuff.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Like most warlocks and witches he’s a creature of the night, but being a hunter he’s trained to get up early to catch monsters… or round up the sheep on his parents’ estate.

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

Warlocks hide their powers from ordinary humans. He will act natural, but will tell people as little as possible about himself.

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

He’ll do it himself. He hates it when he is unable to do something and has to get another man to do it.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

No ornaments or tattoos for him – warlocks shouldn’t draw attention to themselves.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Motorbike.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle! Warlocks and witches respect nature and would never litter.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

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?

And the prince is torn between his old and new desires.

Juliet Cooper’s plans were simple: sell her great uncle’s property, return home, find a job, and get on with life. But then she meets Laren—in both human and cat form. And her plans get complicated. Juliet finds she can’t leave until she knows the secrets that her great uncle’s property and the handsome, blue-eyed man are hiding, unaware of the price she might have to pay.

Get to Know Marty Dashwood from Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint @introvertedwife #RLFblog #ContemporaryromanceLove is a lot closer and more complicated than Marty ever dreamed in Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint. In this gender-swapped modern take on Sense and Sensibility, will Marty realize he’s had his one true love standing by his side?

Ellen, 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 Rash and Rationality.

Rash and Rationality by Ellen Mint

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romance Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Marty Dashwood is a true romantic. Hearts, chocolates, kisses on the hand—the whole nine yards. His killjoy brother Eldon doesn’t believe in love at first sight, but one day Marty will have the perfect meet-cute, she’ll fall helplessly in love with him and they’ll live happily ever after.

Brandy’s worked with Marty for almost two years. He’s the best friend she could ever have hoped for after the accident that took her husband. So she should be happy that Marty finally found what he’d always wanted, right?

So why does it feel like every time she sees Marty with the ‘Social-Media Angel’ he rescued from a mugger, a piece breaks off her heart? How can she explain any of this to him before she loses her best friend forever?

Rash and Rationality is a modern gender-swapped friends-to-lovers Sense and Sensibility, set in a cozy bookshop.

Know the Hero from Rash and Rationality

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

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

Marty will scroll through unending pictures of cute animals and send the best ones to his friend Brandy. He really loves coatimundi.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Flaming Hot Cheetos. He washes like a surgeon before surgery to keep the red tint off his fingers.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Comfortable but Marty knows how to clean up. He’s the type to break out his nice pants, shoes, and a button-up shirt for a date. Though he spends a lot of time in his green polo for the bookstore he works at.

Does he know how to fix things?

It no doubt surprises most to learn that Marty can follow directions. He attached a bike rack to his car all on his own so he could give lifts to his friend Brandy. It didn’t fall off once.

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

In college, Marty would take it upon himself to deliver little notes off encouragement to various girls. Sometimes he’d even drop off a rose if she was struggling. One boyfriend took that really badly and rearranged his nose for him. Marty stopped being the Don Juan of the dorms after that.

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

Total clown. One of the favorite parts of his job in a bookstore is being able to get a kid the perfect book, usually one their parents think is too silly or scary. In the book, Marty waves around a bunch of sparklers to the delight of his second nieces and nephews.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Barely cognizant of his existence. He has a long standing daily appointment with the coffee shop where he gets the biggest, sweetest caffeinated drink. He also always gets an extra donut to bring to Brandy. Sleeping in isn’t an option due to his straight-nosed brother Eldon.

Can he use chopsticks?

He thinks he can.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Take coffee, add milk and sugar. Keep adding sugar. A bit more. Top off with honey and cream.

What apps would he have on his phone?

Sheep Wars, Duolingo, Spotify, Instagram — has only three followers.

Android or iPhone?

Android, and four or five years old. Working in an independent bookstore doesn’t leave him flush with cash.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven. Best Marty can grow is a patchy mustache.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

His mamá would kill him if he ever put a needle to his skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Marty’s got his own car but he’s not above taking a bus or two.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle, though usually into a silly front display for the bookstore.
