Fiction Furbaby: Meet Captain from Bishop Takes Knight by McKenna Dean @McKennaDeanFic @RobsRescues #RLFblog #PetsMcKenna Dean, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We support all furbabies, real life or fictional. We want to know all about your Fiction Furbaby, but first, please tell us about your book.

Bishop Takes Knight by McKenna Dean

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings) PG 13

New York, 1955. Former socialite Henrietta (“Rhett”) Bishop, destitute after her father gambles away the family fortune, takes a job at Redclaw Security. But Redclaw is no ordinary operation. Part detective firm and part enforcement agency, Redclaw regulates matters involving the growing population of shifters who have emerged since the onset of the nuclear age.

Peter Knight is a nuclear scientist shattered by the death of his wife. Blacklisted by the government and scientific organizations, he drowns his sorrows while searching for the people behind his wife’s murder.

When Rhett is assigned to recruit Knight, their meeting is more than either bargained for–a rival organization will do anything to secure Knight for themselves. Following a lead to locate a missing cache of alien technology stolen from Redclaw, Rhett is thrown back into her previous glittering life with Knight as her pretend boyfriend. But when someone from the past turns up to start a bidding war on the artifacts, Bishop and Knight wind up in a fight for their very lives.

Meet Captain from Bishop Takes Knight

Full name Captain

Nickname The Little Dog

Gender male (neutered)

Species Dog

Physical description black and white Jack Russell Terrier

Relationship to main character She cautiously adopted him, is keeping his secret

Relationship to the villain/antagonist What a cute little—EEEEE!!!

Where this furbaby came from No one knows!

What inspired you to create this character?

I inherited this little dog from my mom when she went into assisted living. Jack Russell terriers have a reputation for being fierce, but Captain meshed into my household seamlessly, getting along great with my big dog, the cats, and various livestock.

I thought perhaps he wasn’t really a JRT until the first time he encountered a skunk. It was like a switch flipped and he went into killer mode! The dichotomy between cute, fuzzy terrier and vicious killer amused me, and I thought it would be fun to introduce him into my paranormal series, Redclaw Origins.

What does the main character think about this furbaby?

Rhett encounters Captain in Bishop Takes Knight when her life is in danger. She acts out of kindness to release Captain from his cage so he has a chance at surviving, but that act in turn saves her life when Captain comes to her defense. Instead of reporting the unusual nature of the dog to her boss, which would result in his being caged again, she decides to take him home with her.

What does the villain/antagonist think about this furbaby?

He’s just a little mutt. What harm can he do?

How do other characters react to or interact with this furbaby?

With caution!

What does this furbaby eat?


Please share an interesting fact or tidbit about this furbaby.

Captain is a rescue dog. He lived with my mother until she could no longer take care of him, and then came to live with me. According to his records, he should be at least 13 years old, but we can’t believe that. He leaps on the bed, runs like a racehorse, and puts the 90 pound German shepherd in his place.

Describe a humorous incident involving the animal character.

Only Rhett Bishop and Peter Knight know Captain’s secret–but a spoken word–much like Shazam!–triggers the secret power. So there is a lot of effort that goes into keeping Captain’s abilities under wraps and preventing someone from inadvertently releasing them.

About Captain

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Captain from Bishop Takes Knight by McKenna Dean @McKennaDeanFic @RobsRescues #RLFblog #PetsThis post is called Fiction Furbaby, but perhaps your own pet does not have fur. If you have a pet that has fins, wings, scales, or other features, please tell us about them here.

I have LOTS of pets. Two dogs, five cats, horses, goats…

Which, if any of the pets in your writing are modeled after your own pets? In what way?

I write about shifters, so observing animals helps add realism to my writing. I also love giving my animals cameo appearances in my stories, such as the shy, stray dog Ghost, in Ghost of a Chance.

Captain is definitely modeled after my own little guy, down to the way he dances on his hind legs in excitement, yodels instead of barks, and insists on sleeping by my head on my pillows instead of on the expensive dog bed I bought for him.

What do your pets do when you are writing?

Captain is usually curled by my side. The young, big dog is either asleep at my feet or harassing the cats.

What’s the most unusual pet you ever had?

I used to keep a wide assortment of rodents–many from other countries, such as chinchillas and degus. I’ve also had an iguana, and I used to raise rabbits.

Where did you find your pet?

Captain came from the shelter, where he’d been for almost a year. I couldn’t believe no one wanted him! He’s a wonderful little dog.

What do you feed your pet?

Royal Canin makes breed specific foods, so I feed the Jack Russell diet. I want Captain to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible, so that means not giving in to his demands for table food, making sure he’s at a good weight, and keeping his teeth clean.

Describe a toy or favorite item your pet loves.

Captain goes bonkers for sticks. I have several videos of him yodeling until I give him his stick, whereupon he runs off with it. Forget about cleaning up the yard when he’s with you! He’ll bring back every stick you throw away.

Introducing Glyn of Clan Miller from Hatchling's Vengeance (#4 of the Dragshi Chronicles) by Helen Henderson @history2write #RLFblog #fantasy #dragonshiftersLet’s meet Glyn of Clan Miller from Hatchling’s Vengeance, a fantasy by Helen Henderson. 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.

Hatchling’s Vengeance by Helen Henderson

Genre Fantasy

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

Vengeance has two paths. The cult leader, the Parant, means to have his. No matter how long it takes or how many innocents die, he will kill all dragon shifters. For the last two unattached dragon shifters, their only weapons to save their kind are their swords–and love. Sometimes not even dragon fire and talons are enough to overcome the mind control wielded by the one called–the Parant.

For those who the Parant commands, will vengeance yield to love and provide a path to redemption? Or will retribution decree the punishment for past acts be death?

Dragon shifter and follower alike stand on the knife’s edge with happiness and loss fighting to control the balance.

Introducing Glyn of Clan Miller

Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 23

Gender: Sorry, I can’t answer that. Very few people know my true gender. And if it is revealed, it would not only endanger someone I must protect, but cost me my dearest friends.

Birthplace: somewhere in the Revarn Mountains of Nerelan

Profession: bodyguard to the dragon lord, Lady Lexii Beylnea

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): I am a true human. No one knows why but I am one of the few humans who can communicate using mindspeech with both the dragshi and their dragon halves.

What do you look like?

I have wavy dark hair that I keep cut short. Since most women of my world keep their hair long, the style helps conceal my true gender and doesn’t provide an adversary an advantage in a fight. At least if this one stray lock stops falling over my eyes. My usual dress of pants and tunic, and my slender build allows me to pass as a man.

Who is the significant other in your life?

I am promised to no man. I will tell you this. In my dreams, when I hope for release from the pledge to protect Lexii up to and including my life, the man riding beside me is Talann, son of Lady Anastasia Jessian and Lord Branin Llewlyn. But it is only a dream, Once Talann’s dragon soul twin awakes and he takes his rightful place amongst the dragshi, he will be Lexii’s mate.

Are you close to family?

Yes and no. I was orphaned when my parents were lost at sea. Although I do not see them often, there is a bond between me and my kin, Clan Miller. When I do have the opportunity to travel in their trading wagons, it is as if we have never been separated. They must have recognized something in me for they pledged me into the service of the dragshi. When I came of age, I renewed the vow to protect the Lady Lexii and to serve as friend and confident. With the vows, I in essence gained another family. While the draghsi are not of my blood, they are as close to me as any other person alive. Lady Anastasia Jessian and Lord Branin Llewlyn have always treated me as if I was their daughter.

Please tell us about your education.

One of my duties as bodyguard to a dragshi is to be able to mingle in their society. As a result I attended the same classes as Lexii, learned under the same masters. Hours were spent in the archives studying the rule of law so that I could properly serve as Lexii’s confidant when the time came for her to stand in judgement. Besides the formal training I received at the hands of the ceoltiers and the best weaponsmasters in the land, I learned the ways of my trading caravan kinsmen and traveled with them a ways so that when the time came to relinquish my duty to the dragshi, I would have the necessary skills and experience to earn my own living.

On what special skills do you rely?

As bodyguard to a dragon lord, I must be skilled with a wide variety of weapons. There are fanatics in the land who view a human who can take on dragon form as an abomination to be eliminated. I can hold my own with a master of the short sword, am very good with long bow, but is the short bow where I am the most skilled as marksman.

What is your biggest need?

For Talann’s dragon soul twin to awaken so that Talann can take his rightful place amongst the dragshi. Once he is wed to Lexii I will be freed of my oath and able to pursue my own life. I only hope that the dragon soul awakes soon for it is harder and harder to resist my feelings for Talann. And each day the fear grows that he will never ascend to his rightful heritage. An additional complication? Talann and Lexii’s souls clash. My two closest friends cannot stand to be near each other.

What would you like to tell your writer?

The world perceives me as a man and everyone knows that a real man rides a stallion. Yet you gave me a mare for my mount. Riding a female horse frequently puts me on the receiving end of comments and taunts. While I attempt to avoid conflict, it is not always possible to avoid a fight without being considered a coward. As bodyguard to a dragon lord I cannot afford to be thought of as anything other than a skilled fighter. You know my secret, the truth of my identity, yet with me riding a mare you added to my troubles. Why?
