Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author's Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1 by Laura Tolomei @LallaGatta #RLFblog #NewRelease #RomanceLaura Tolomei, 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.

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1 by Laura Tolomei

Genre: Erotic, LGBT, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell finds himself alone for the very first time in his life, he cannot understand what has gone wrong. From his earliest years, he had been with at least one, if not both, of the two special people he had chosen and deeply loved. Christopher Templeton, his phase mate, and Ylianor Caldwell, his father’s heart child, have always been his reference points, the two fixed stars of his evolving destiny. His insane lust for both have further strengthened his bond to them during the apparently endless time they had already spent together. And yet…no matter how much he gets of them, it’s never enough. Not of Ylianor, his adored princess, born and raised in Black Rose, his own home. Certainly not of Chris, his beloved angel, met as a mere eight-year-old on the hills of the same Black Rose that had brought Ylianor to him. So why is he alone now?

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where The Heat, Book 6, leaves off and reconnects the princess to her amazing power. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

Why did you write this book?

Before I answer, you must be aware that this latest release of mine is a rivisitation of the first book of my most successful series, the Virtus Saga. This book was originally published as The Sex, but after 10 years from its release, I felt the need to rewrite it in my current style.

Yes, because when it was first written, I was just starting out as an author, so my style, plot construction and character building were…primitive at best :-)

This is also why the full title of this novel is Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut.

Now the story is much more fluid and the characters practically jump out at you—that’s how real they are!

To understand about Virtus Sex, you must first understand about the saga itself.

It’s an Erotic Dark Fantasy Paranormal Romance Series that Explores the Dark and Light Sides of Power and Love between Three People.

But it’s also the Making of a Trio: the Virtus Saga shows how power and love can be equally shared.

It’s comprised of 10 books in all that must be read in sequence, one after the other for the story to make sense. There are 3 amazing characters with super-powers. There’s 1 sinister pyramid, but 1,000 scorching MMF erotic scenes. Mostly, there’s 1 tense battle of good versus evil.

Now completed, this erotic dark fantasy series is continuing to receive critical acclaims. The concept of a world free of violence attracts readers. The fiery MM and MMF sex keeps them hooked to every page. Dripping passion and lust woven inside an imaginary frame ruled by magical powers, this saga is nothing more than the age-old battle of good versus evil only without the violence usually associated to such fierce struggles for survival.

The titles say it all:

The Sex

The Game

The Festival

The Leader

The Pledge

The Heat

The Princess

The Lord

Not In The Game, Deleted Scenes from The Game

Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut (previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes)

The way it all starts and progresses, nothing is as it seems. Soul-mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled, until Duncan takes shelter in Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack. Ylianor has always loved Duncan, and while Duncan is attracted to her, she remains a servant—okay to bed, but not acceptable consort material. Unwilling to accept it, Ylianor vows she will do anything, even come head to head with his insufferable lover, to stay at his side.

But there is more going on than either of the three realize.

Lord Arthur Fairchild, Leader of the High Council, knows his planet Sendar is doomed unless the predestined Hero steps in and blocks the darkness threatening to take over. And even if one person alone fits the bill, Arthur does the unthinkable—not only does he summon the Hero, but the Hero’s consorts as well.

Sendar needs these three special people to become fully aware of their powers and learn how to use them together, working as one above and beyond their personal issues. They must become one whilst being three to make it through the difficult times ahead. If they do not, the Virtus which holds all of Sendar’s secret could destroy them all. And then how will their world survive?

About book 1, Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, this is the first installment, the book that starts the entire saga. As I said above, this new edition is so much richer than the original version. The characters are more vivid and three-dimensional. The plot is more linear and direct. The story is more detailed and articulate. The sex scenes are more torrid and satisfying. All in all, this new book 1 of the Virtus Saga gives readers a better grasp of the series and it’s a highly recommended starting point for all those interested in dark fantasy romance.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Mystery, crime, historical non-fiction. Interestingly enough, romance isn’t one of my favorites when it comes to reading, maybe because I prefer to imagine it on my own rather than have someone else tell me about it J

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

Sebastian Flyte from Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited is one of my favorite characters.

He’s so good-looking, rich, spoiled and self-destructive that it’s impossible not to like him. Just the way he is makes people fall under his spell, and none more than Charles Ryder do it with more passion or conviction. So much that Charles tries to save Sebastian from himself, a short-lived attempt given how uncaring Sebastian is about his fate.

That’s the charm of this character for me. He fascinates me, much as he did Charles, in spite of his shortcomings.

Or maybe because of his shortcomings.

The way Waugh portrays Sebastian, his vices open up a new world for Charles, a world he almost couldn’t imagine before his path crossed with Sebastian. And it changed his life.

Mine was also changed after meeting Sebastian Flyte. Not just because of him or of his relationship with Charles. Mostly because I learned that sometimes, when one is on the path of self-destruction, there can be no rescue no matter how much we love that person.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on Virtus Game, The Game: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 2. This is another rivisitation in the Virtus Saga, as I’m about to complete the rewriting of the second book in this series. Already, a part of this work has been released last year in Not In The Game, The Game: Deleted Scenes, Virtus Saga Plus, which contain many previously unreleased sex scenes. But Virtus Game has a broader sweep and will carry forward the story of my three heroes—Duncan Caldwell, Christopher Templeton and Ylianor Meyer—all the way to Duncan becoming the new Leader of the High Council.

Here is the blurb:

This book was previously published as Virtus, The Game but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell has to enter Cecilia Hurst’s Game of Masters and Slaves, he already knows he’ll have to play Master if he intends to retrieve the pyramid Cecilia stole from the sacred Nephis Valley. And his choice for a slave can only be Ylianor Meyer, however fiercely Lord Christopher Templeton resents her and her overpowering erotic intrusion in a trip that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone. No, make that in a love that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone! Then things precipitate into chaos and Duncan’s new responsibilities will inevitably change everything forever, their personal balance included.

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book picks up right where Virtus Sex, Book 1, leaves off and explodes lust and leadership into estrangement and chaos. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Besides Virtus Game, other projects I’m working on are:

Becoming Zero, Slave For A Summer

A BDSM descent into sexual slavery for Misty Summers, a young woman with the right background but the wrong luck.

Leon’s Mark, ReScue Series Book 2

The spicy and romantic follow up to Re-Scue, where Leon Sterling and Sean Davis expand their relationship and explore their limits.

Aware-Ness, ReScue Series Book 3

From a duo to a trio, the third book in the series takes off with an on the road trip from Atlanta, GA, to San Francisco, CA. But things between Leon Sterling, Sean Davis and Janet Ramsey aren’t as smooth as they seem.

Where to buy Virtus Sex, The Sex: Author’s Cut, Virtus Saga Book 1

When Prince Duncan Caldwell loses his way home and knocks on a stranger’s door, looking to find shelter, he doesn’t know his life is about to change forever. Not because he can’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful woman who opens that door, but more so because she’s a stranger yet he can’t shake the feeling she belongs to him. And discovering she’s been banned from his home can’t stop the vortex of his feelings nor the truth of his world from crashing down on him.

This is just the beginning of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.

This book starts the love and the passion that entwines fiery sex into this intricate three-way relationship. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

Dee Carver, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog.

I’ll step back and let her take the wheel.

Hello Everyone! Kayelle, thank you for having me, it’s great to be back!

Meet Webmistress, Market Consultant and author Dee Carver @pmnp Author and Owner of #PMInc #RLFblog #PNR

The First Story | Marketing and Running a Business | Finally, The Author Returns

As some of you know I began this long journey as an author back in 2005, with my first book La Roe’s. It began with a dream about a dress, and though I can manipulate graphic images, I cannot draw very well. That is where my daughter, Amber, is the most talented. Since I could not draw the dress, I decided to describe it, which led to the woman wearing it. Then the scene came along, the people surrounding her, and why she was wearing it in the first place. Before I knew it, I had a short story about a wedding gown. My neighbor at the time asked me if I was going to finish telling the story and well, I guess that’s what Emerald (the heroine) wanted because I ended up with my first book.
I learned a few hard knocks with my first book, such as everyone needs an editor. Not every publishing house is a good one. Not every writing job is a bad one. Now, later in life, I look back and cringe…

Marketing Crash Course

Like many authors, I had no idea what marketing was or that I was supposed to do anything about it. A friend, and fellow author, asked me a few poignant questions:
“Have you sent out for reviews?”

“Have a website yet?”

“Do you have a Facebook account?”

“Scheduled any interviews?”

Needless to say, the list went on and I learned a valuable lesson. There is a lot of work that comes after the book is published. Writing a book alone is simply not enough. I did blog hops, which helped. I wrote reviews, which also helped. I wrote articles for other companies which helped even more. All to grow my name, so when someone would search me on Google, I could be found. All the while, I spent time creating book trailers, doing interviews, and eventually writing my second story. Well, more like my second heroine told me her story.

After a few years of putting what I had learned towards helping others, a friend, Raven Starr, suggested that I start a business. I have to admit, I chuckled at first, but in 2008 I found myself opening Personalized Marketing Inc and never looked back. I was able to use the information on bad publishers and bad editing to guide authors towards making better choices. I learned White Hat SEO, when it was the only SEO that was being talked about, as well as other methods used for SEO, so we have been able to provide it for our clients. I also learned methods for Organic Growth before it became a ‘thing’. WordPress was even different back then.

The first website I had was a single page that may have been built inside of Word. (Yeah, I know…) However, I found other sites and I wanted one of those… Not only did I want one, I wanted to make one! I had to know how they did it. So, thanks to some Googling, I found a code viewer and it just clicked. I understood that certain lines of code made different things happen. Then came WordPress, which uses PHP, it’s a little different but after a learning curve, I began to see the codes just forming into the structures I wanted. When I began working with WordPress, we didn’t have auto installers or programs that auto connected databases and did auto backups. It was all manual and done with a lot of zip files. Sometimes I miss those days. Sometimes I miss just HTML and CSS or C++.
Cindy: pst, Dee, you’re geeking
In 2017 Cindy came on board, we ended up with not only a skilled editor but also a talented digital artist.
Ahh but the coder and owner is getting carried away and the author must take precedence…

Finally, The Author Returns

Meet Webmistress and Market Consultant Dee Carver @pmnp Author and Owner of #PMInc #RLFblog #PNRA few years ago, I decided to get back to writing, not for other websites or companies but for myself. I thought about the 3rd book, Chocolate Seductions, which I had written but never did anything with, other than one submission. The submission went well, they just wanted a 3rd person P.O.V. So, I thought about it, talked with a couple of friends, tried my hand at it and about made myself sick. I can write 3rd person all day long in business communications, papers, articles, emails, even books that are not mine or not the heroines in my head.
These lovely stubborn ladies, well, they just didn’t want a sideline view of their lives being handed out as though they were not the ones telling their stories. I love to read 3rd P.O.V. stories as well as 1st P.O.V., I enjoy a strong male lead, I enjoy getting to know what is inside of the other characters heads as well. My favorites though have always been those that take you deep inside, that weave a story so well that you feel as though the movie is playing out inside your head. That, even though you are satisfied at the end of the book, you still wish it hadn’t ended because you just did not want to let that character go.
However, after that gut-wrenching experience, I put my stories away again. Then in 2018 I decided with the help of Cindy, that I was going to produce these books, with the editing they deserved. With the call to finish the stories I had begun so long ago; La Roe’s has been re-released with a much better editing job than the original. Cindy has Fay’s Wish, which hopefully does not require as much of an editing job as the first book, we’ll see. Ambrosia, from Chocolate Seductions, has been poking me lately, giving me glimpses into her back story that I don’t really remember from before, which oddly enough is making Grant a little more likeable. One thing about being a 1st P.O.V. panster, I never know where these ladies are going to take me until I get there. It’s great, because I get a new story, but also really frustrating when I thought something else was supposed to happen instead.

Is It True: Dracula's Bride by Rebekah R Ganiere @vampwerezombie #RLFblog #GothicRomance #ParanormalRomance

Gothic castle interior

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Rebekah R Ganiere, author of Dracula’s Bride, a Gothic Romance Paranormal Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Dracula’s Bride by Rebekah R Ganiere

Genre Gothic Romance – Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Mina wants to escape her sheltered life. Blue needs a fresh start. Together they might find the satisfaction they both crave.

Mina has spent the last five years being house servant to her three older siblings- Arthur, Quincey, and Lucy, under the thumb of her volatile Admiral father, But her entire life is changed in an instant–when she is almost run over by a mysterious black horse-drawn carriage.
Count Vlad “Blue” Draugr flees his castle in Transylvania after an unspeakable act draws too much attention his way. Now secluded in his rural English estate, he finds himself drawn to a most unlikely creature. The sweet and innocent Mina Van Deem from the neighboring estate.
Unable to get her out of his thoughts Blue wants nothing more than to make her like him – a vampire. But Blue’s thirst for blood keeps him from fully trusting himself to keep his fangs off her neck.
In an act of desperation, Mina runs from her dysfunctional family and escapes to London. There she finds more than solitude in the sooty city streets that are alit with whispers of a string of recent bloody murders–she finds Blue, waiting for her, tempting her, stalking her. And as she falls deeper under his spell, Mina learns that some creatures lying in the shadows of London’s underbelly are more enticing than she ever thought possible.

Those who crave the dark passion of Dracula and Crimson Peak, Dracula’s Bride will be your new favorite.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. Dracula’s Bride is about my twenty fifth book. I used to keep track of exactly how many I’ve written but I am currently working on 7 books at the same time so I’ve lost count. Haha.
this book is part of a series?
Yes. Dracula’s Bride is the first book in my Immortal Monsters Series. The next book will be Frankenstein’s Bride. There will also be a Jekyll and Hyde, Wolf Man and Phantom of the Opera. We’ll see if I do more than those.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Only a little. I have been writing long enough now, 5 years, that I know when it’s time to quit for the night. That doesn’t mean my characters don’t shake me awake first thing in the morning and scream for me to get up and tell their stories.
you did research for this book?
Yes. Because it takes place in Victorian London and areas outside of London I needed to do a lot of research on railways at the time, electricity, mail, military, clothing, etc. The clothing was the hardest to find what I was looking for.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
The main character Blue – Vlad – has wolves. They are more minions than pets though.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes it does. It is a Paranormal Romance but also a Gothic Romance. A retelling of the Classic Dracula is has all of the feel of a Gothic Romance and the fun of a Paranormal Vampire romance as well.
you speak more than one language?
Nope. I wish I did. I am going to take a simple German class this fall, just for fun. Mostly because my best friend is from Germany and she knows English but her three little girls came to visit this summer and they don’t.
you grew up where you live now?
Nope. I grew up all over. Born in California. Young child in Connecticut. Lived in Virginia until Jr. High. Then moved to Boise, Idaho for jr. high through high school and some college. I currently live in California again. I’ve also lived in Hawaii, Utah, Maryland and a couple other places.
you love to read?
I do love to read. I love to read all kinds of things. Right now I really love to read books on writing. But my favorites are Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, Sci-fi, YA.
you are never late?
I am no longer late. When I was younger I used to be late all the time but for some reason after I had kids I stopped being late. Probably because my kids are actors and we have to be at auditions at a specific time and if you are late they call your agent to ask where you are. It only took that happening a couple times before I became embarrassed enough to make sure I was on time.
you love pizza?
I DO love pizza… which is super, super, super hard because I can’t have gluten or dairy anymore.
you love sushi?
Absolutely!! If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be Japanese food. Yummy!
you have a pet?
I do not have A pet. I have a German Shepherd named Harley Quinn, a tortoise named Harold, a Bearded Dragon named Firestar, and 5 guinea pigs. Sweet Pea, BB8, Bugsy, Captain America and Winter Soldier.

Introducing Stephan von Haas from Alpha Mine, by Brenda Sparks @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #PNRLet’s meet Stephan von Hass from Alpha Mine, a paranormal romance, by Brenda Sparks. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

In the shadows of the night, there exists a band of warriors–a group of vampires, known as the Alpha Council. Their formidable leader, Stephan von Haas, has vowed to protect not only his kind, but the humans existing alongside them. His duty comes before all else–until a sassy blonde saunters into his life.
When a sensual, dark-haired stranger walks into Katrina Spencer’s life, he stirs her deepest desires and sweeps her into a world beyond her wildest dreams. But when Katrina is targeted by Stephan’s enemies, reality shifts into something violent and deadly, as she is thrust into a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and vengeance is coming for her.
Together they will confront an extraordinary destiny of peril, passion, and dark pleasures. But when one horrid mistake brings retribution, their love may pay the price.

Introducing Stephan von Haas

Please tell me about yourself.
Age: 650ish…I think. Honestly, I stopped counting after my 300th birthday.
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Germany
Profession: Entrepreneur
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): vampire
What do you look like?
I’m a 6 ft 5 in warrior with dark brown hair and sapphire-blue eyes. I may be over 600 years old, but I’m told I don’t look a day over 35.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Katrina Spencer is my heartmate. She is amazing. She’s a strong-willed, leggy blonde, with gray-blue eyes that will draw you in. She is kind and loving. The day I found out she was my heartmate, was one of the luckiest days of my life.
Are you book-smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Yes. You don’t live hundreds of years without learning in multiple ways. I believe in learning everything the world has to offer.
What is your viewpoint on wealth?
I live extravagantly. I am fortunate to have a lot, but I am generous. I believe in giving back, helping others. It’s part of the reason why I established the Alpha Council, to help those who can’t help themselves.
On what special skills do you rely?
My fighting skills. Being the leader of the Alpha Council is a great responsibility. I must not only lead the men, but also lead the fight. I work hard to make sure I stay in top fighting shape and keep my skills as sharp as the blades I carry.
What past event causes you the most fear?
My heartmate was kidnapped and tortured. I’ve never been so scare. If anything happened to Katrina, I could not be held responsible for what I would do.
What is your biggest need?
To make the world a safer place, a place where my heartmate (and one day my children) can move about without fear for their safety.
If you could make any one thing happen, what would it be?
I would give my heartmate the child she so desperately wants. Unfortunately, having children is biologically difficult for vampires.

Brenda Sparks has always loved all things spooky and enjoys incorporating paranormal elements in her writing. She refuses to allow pesky human constraints to get in the way of telling the story. Luckily the only thing limiting her stories is her imagination. Her characters are strong, courageous, and she adores spending time with them in their imaginary world.
Her idea of a perfect day is one spent in front of a computer with a hot cup of coffee, her fingers flying over the keys to send her characters off on their latest adventure.

Read the new Well Endowed by Tina Donahue @tinadonahue #RLFblog #PNR #RomanticComedyWelcome 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.

Well Endowed by Tina Donahue

Genre Erotic PNR RomCom
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Where there’s a will, there’s wicked fun…
Drowning in bad luck, Cari doesn’t know where to turn when the unexpected happens. A loyal customer at her Key West café has left her an inheritance. She hopes for cash to save her restaurant, but receives an old brass bottle that looks like a sex toy…and has Jez inside.
At six-four, he’s built like a gladiator, has looks to die for, and oozes sexuality. He’s also a jinn.
Color her enthralled and excited. Besides being one hot dude, he grants wishes, right?
Not for her. Ironclad tradition demands he serve men, not women. Of course, if she wants to get down and dirty with him, he’ll gladly oblige.
Let the battle of the sexes begin. Before long, their differences fall away as they indulge in every lusty desire, while falling hard and fast. Ah, paradise. Until trouble arrives, threatening to pull them apart forever…

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre?
Yes
If so, what are they?…
Erotic, erotica, contemporary, historical, paranormal, scifi, suspense, romantic comedy (romcom), urban fantasy
How do you come up with ideas
?…
Honestly, they just pop into my head. I see scenes, like in a movie, and then my ideas start flowing around a plot. Sometimes, I think ‘what if…’ Such as, what if paranormal creatures needed a makeover service as much as humans so the paras could snag a date?
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Thinking. Imagining. Envisioning. If I don’t see it in my head first, it doesn’t come out well on the page.
When did you write your first book
?…
I was nine. I called it ‘Dimples the Adventurous Flea’ about a flea that hopped from dog to dog (French poodle to English bulldog to Irish settler) in order to ‘see the world’.

FUN

Leather or lace? LOL – both. I can’t choose.
Black or red? OMG – again, both.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton. I’ve had the satin and kept sliding on it.
Ocean or mountains? Mountains
City life or country life? Country
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? I love both, but cats – wow – adore those babies.

The Rigel Affair by LM Hedrick

Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.
Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother’s friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family’s stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.
After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn’t–sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes… Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.
Charlie’s letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?
The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.

The Eagle at Dawn (Immortal Shifters Book 4) by Holly Bargo

Rachel’s brother uses her as collateral to settle a debt with an outlaw motorcycle gang. She flees to a local bar and pleads with a darkly handsome to help her. His help results in homicide. When eagle shifter Diego’s vacation is interrupted by the innocent young woman he recognizes as his mate, he flees with her across national borders because she’s his and he’s not letting her go.

When freedom beckons, Rachel answers its call; but, freedom brings hardship and indignity. Will she return to the controlling alpha male who stirs her blood or cling stubbornly to her freedom?
