Genre Paranormal Romance/Shapeshifter
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Victoria Marshall is living a lie. She works for a member of the Knights of the Dragon, a secret society that traps and uses dragons for their own gain. As a child, she made an unlikely friend—a drakon. He went missing, and she’s spent the past twenty years searching for him. The only thing distracting her from her mission is Luther Henderson, her boss’s new head of security.
Luther is also living a lie. One, if discovered, could lead to a fate worse than death. He’s attracted to Victoria, but can’t fully trust her, doesn’t know if she’s truly innocent or a true member of the Knights. It’s not only his life at stake, but those of the people he loves.

As they’re thrust deeper into the dangerous dealings of the Knights, they each have to share their secrets in order to survive.

Introducing Luther Henderson

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. Please tell me about yourself.
Age: I’m older than I look
Gender: male
Birthplace: Alaska
Profession: Security Expert
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I’m a drakon
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
In my human form, I’m 6’6″ with short blond hair and blue eyes. I have a tattoo that covers the entire left side of my body from my neck to my ankles. It’s a birthmark and is a swirling pattern that is silver and outlined in the same blue as my eyes.
Tell us about yourself, please.
I’m currently employed as the head of security for a member of the Knights of the Dragon. Their sole purpose is to capture and control dragons (that’s what they call drakons) for the healing power that exists in their blood. My purpose is to infiltrate their organization.
Who is the significant other in your life?
*leans forward aggressively* Why do you want to know about my Victoria?
How do you dress?
I much prefer jeans and T-shirts, but I’ve worn custom tailored suits for the past few years. Most of the mercenaries who work for my employer wear black combat-style clothing. Over the years, I’ve learned that when I wear a suit, it puts people at ease. They tend to underestimate me, forget I’m dangerous. Which works all the better for me.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
All the above. I’ve always learned whatever I’ve needed to, plus I’ve had a lot of experience in different situations.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
I’ve worked hard and made my fair share of money. Money gives you power and freedom, things I value. I don’t mind working hard to get what I want. Makes it all the sweeter.
Can you keep a secret? Why or why not?
Can I keep a secret? Baby, my entire life is about keeping secrets. The things I know… Well, if I told you, I’d have to kill you.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
I try not to have doubts. I prefer to stay focused on my goals, believing I can achieve them. *shakes head* If I’d allowed doubt to creep in, I’m not sure I would have survived, might have given into despair years ago.
What is your biggest need?
To have everyone I love safe. And make no mistake, I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen. If the world has to burn… *shrugs* Then it burns.

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
One of my treats is to take myself out for breakfast twice a week. Working from home, it gets too easy to just stay inside. It’s my way of making sure I don’t become a complete hermit. I usually get whole wheat toast and a scrambled egg. I know, so exciting. But I enjoy curling up with my breakfast and a large cup of tea and reading a good book.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Only one? It’s so hard to choose just one. There are so many amazing book boyfriends to choose from. Right off the top of my head, I’d say Rhage from J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I mean, who doesn’t want a badass who can turn into a dragon.
Kaleb Krychek from Nalini Singh’s Heart of Obsidian is a close second. This man is willing to destroy anyone and anything that gets in the way of finding his woman. He won’t stop until he finds her. *sigh*
Describe the perfect vacation.
For a quiet vacation, I enjoy the beach. I’m not talking about lying on a soft, sandy beach sipping a drink. I’m more about beachcombing on a rugged shoreline. You never know what you might find. I’ve found a coin from a hundred years ago and have a decent beach glass collection. I love to wander up and down a beach. I can spend hours doing that. It’s endlessly fascinating.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
The fun thing about writing is that you never know where the research might take you. I research a lot of places. Currently it’s Alaska. Checking out guidebooks and maps and websites. YouTube is a great help as well. I also spent some time checking out knives and knife fighting. Wow, there are some amazing people out there. And it was an excuse to watch more Forged in Fire episodes on TV.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Since Jarek and Marc live in a world that doesn’t have phones, if they heard one ring they’d most likely smash it to bits with their swords. That would be fun to watch.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Christina’s Tapestry
Tapestries, Book 1
Captivated by a lush tapestry she sees in a shop window, Christina Beaumont impulsively buys it, never imagining how that one action will change her life. The magical tapestry not only transports her to a world that resembles medieval Earth, but also into the arms of two massive warriors who both want to claim her.
Jarek and Marc, brothers of the House of Garen, are elated to discover the tapestry has delivered Christina to them, but ancient tradition dictates that they must compete for the right to be her husband. Both separately and together, the two will indulge Christina in every sensual way possible, taking her to passionate heights beyond even her most intense fantasies.
As the time for Christina to choose between the two men draws near, she is confronted with another option: she can return to her own modern world. Fearing their loss, Jarek and Marc will join forces to convince Christina to stay with them, even as they fight a rival family for the right to keep her as their very own…
