He can save mankind. There’s just one catch. First, he has to die.Bringer of Chaos: Lights Out by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #SpaceOpera #FreeBookFriday #Read
Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You’ll live forever, they said. You’ll save mankind, they said. They didn’t say that to do it, first he had to die.
When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he’s assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.
He’s facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.
Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed “Lights Out.” No, there’s more to this than he can see.
To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time–somehow–find a way to keep himself alive…

Know the Heroine from Pets in Space® 4 Star Cruise Idol's Curse by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifiromanceVeronica Scott, 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 heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Pets in Space® 4 Star Cruise Idol’s Curse by Veronica Scott

Genre Scifi romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

One of the 13 all new stories in this year’s Pets in Space® 4 anthology to benefit Hero-Dogs INC.,

An unusual bequest….

Juli Shaeffer, the Nebula Zephyr’s cruise director, receives a mysterious bequest from the estate of a longtime passenger – a lump of rock taken from a reef on the planet Tahumaroa. Legend states anyone who steals from the ocean gods will be cursed. The passenger’s will requests the rock be returned to the beach so his heirs won’t be affected by the bad luck he believed he’d incurred. Juli doesn’t believe in superstitions and she agrees to carry out this small favor on the ship’s next stop at the planet in question.

Until the rock disappears from her office…

When the rock disappears and reappears in various locations around the ship, and seems connected to a steadily escalating series of mishaps, Juli turns to Third Officer Steve Aureli as the only one she feels she can trust. Along with Steve and his elderly Aunt Dian – a passenger aboard the Nebula Zephyr for this cruise – she investigates the strange series of malfunctions plaguing the interstellar luxury liner. Steve and Juli enlist his Aunt Dian’s dog, Charrli, a retired Sectors Z Corps canine, to help them track the missing rock as it moves about the ship.

Juli and Steve must find the rock, hang onto it and transport it to the planet’s surface, before the alien idol’s curse turns deadly. The attraction between the two of them grows as the threat to Juli becomes more and more focused. Can she carry out her task while he keeps her safe from the alien curse? Will the capricious alien idol bring them good fortune…or disaster?

Know the Heroine: Juli

Know the Heroine from Pets in Space® 4 Star Cruise Idol's Curse by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifiromanceHere are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

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

Juli would probably research the next stop for the Nebula Zephyr, since she’s the Cruise Director, and identify fun things for her passengers to do while on the planet.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

She tries to eat a healthy diet but she’s on the go all day so her snacks are fruits and nuts. If she was feeling really decadent, she’d go have a special ice cream cake in one of the ship’s upscale restaurants.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

On duty she wears the cruise line’s blue and white uniforms, mixing and matching various approved pieces depending on the day’s activities. She likes to be casual in her time off but she does enjoy wearing a fabulous gown for special occasions.

Does she know how to fix things?

Juli knows how to problem solve for her passengers, so she knows who to talk to on the ship to resolve issues and she’s happy to work through the cruise line’s offices on various planets to fix problems encountered by passengers in their local travels. She’s not technically trained in any way so she’d call the ship’s chief engineer or ask the ship’s Artificial Intelligence to fix anything of that nature.

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

Earlier in the same cruise, one of the passengers, who is a famous opera singer, and who has symbiotic butterflies instead of hair, was pounced on by the ship’s cat. The alien butterflies flew away, the diva nearly died (because she lost her symbionts – the cat didn’t hurt her) and only the ship’s captain could persuade the singer not to sue. Luckily the butterflies returned. Juli had to apologize and swallow a lot of insults directed at the cat!

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

She’s very good with children, a natural at talking with them and discovering their interests and enthusiasms. She organizes a lot of activities on the cruise ship to keep passengers’ children happy and busy.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She needs a loud alarm to wake up but once she does open her eyes, she’s a total morning person who jumps out of bed and dives into the day’s tasks. She’s always conscious of her To Do list and feels the pressure to get things done.

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

Juli has built up a healthy level of self-confidence over her years working in the interstellar cruise ship industry so she knows she can resolve problems and issues successfully. In her personal life, she’s a bit more insecure, as with her crush on Third Officer Steve Aureli. Fortunately the events in this story force Juli and Steve together in the course of their duties and she’s able to pursue the romance she’s always hoped to have.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

She has a bit of an inner conflict not doing everything herself but as she’s risen through the ranks, she’s had to learn to delegate effectively and not micro manage. She’s effective at training people to carry out their duties, which eases her mind, and she has a wonderful assistant on the Nebula Zephyr, who is able to fill in for Juli when the issue of the idol’s curse sidelines her.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

I know Juli loves earrings but she doesn’t have any piercings or tattoos. She does like the tatts Officer Aureli has though.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Since she lives aboard the ship, she borrows a groundcar from the local cruise line office if possible when she’s on a planet, or would rent a vehicle if necessary. She’s not much for public transit only because she’s always under so much time pressure.

Recycle or toss?

Definitely recycle!

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

It Starts With A Kiss by JL Peridot @jlperidot #RLFblog #NewRelease #SciFi #RomanceJL Peridot, 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.

It Starts With A Kiss by JL Peridot

Genre Retrofuturistic sci-fi office romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Celeste is a talented engineer who doesn’t realize her job’s going nowhere fast. She’s a little naïve. She’ll cut code and solder cables forever as long as Owen’s around. Owen, on the other hand, knows exactly how badly things suck–he just doesn’t care. Sure, his skills aren’t what they used to be, but they’re still better than what Halcyon Aries deserves.

Then it happens. The company’s toxic management team finally cross the line. As both techies race to upgrade the station and to free the team from their oppressive contracts, they come to learn that life–and love–can only ever be what you make it.

Why did you write this book?

Initially, I just wanted to write a feel-good office romance set in the same universe as my previous novellas, Chasing Sisyphus and “Question”. But as I wrote, I found I had a lot of material (aka. “feelings”) locked up inside me. The Eleanor parts, the management parts and, heck, Celeste’s entire personal journey as the story unfolds were all fed by the years I’d spent in a technical and corporate environment.

When life gets frustrating or confusing, reading fiction helps me feel less alone. A great, relatable book gives me perspective and suggests how I could deal with stuff. This book is for the talented, professional, undermined women out there. Like Celeste, they could achieve just about everything they want to with just a little more self belief.

I see you, my lovelies.

What is your favorite genre to read?

Science fiction, but to be honest, I’ll read just about anything with a good story or interesting writing style. One of my all-time favourite books, War Boy by Kief Hillsbery, isn’t even close to the bookstore shelves I gravitate toward, but the story and writing just blew me away.

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

Lucasinho Corta from Ian McDonald’s Luna series. I adore his style, adore the style the author uses in his scenes. He embodies sex, hubris, sincerity and possibility. How can you not fall in love with that?

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m experimenting with storytelling in other mediums. It’s too early to talk about yet, but once the real work begins, I expect to vent my frustrations quite liberally on twitter :o)

What books will we see from you in coming months?

The rest of The Basilica Conspiracy and a few shorter erotic and romantic pieces.

Beg for Mercy by Jami Gray

Genre Post-apocalyptic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Choosing a side has never been so dangerous…

The world didn’t end in fire and explosions, instead it collapsed slowly, like falling dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild weather and collapsing economies, until what remained of humanity battles for survival in a harsh new reality.

An assassin by trade, a loner by nature, Mercy is sent to infiltrate the Cartels and unmask the identity of their new silent partner. Instead, she discovers a darker plan threatening to crumble the entire Southwest and ends up with a hefty bounty on her head. Still, she’s determined to stop the impending attack at any costs, even if it means partnering up with a member of the notorious Fate’s Vultures.

After enduring a brutal, blood-soaked lesson on the savagery of civilization’s scavengers, Havoc is well acquainted with the consequences of battling predators. But as a member of the nomadic band of arbitrators known as Fate’s Vultures, he’s determined to cement the necessary allies to oust the biggest threat looming on the horizon. When an enigmatic woman crosses his path, her secrets and troubling loyalty light the fuse on an unexpected craving and his insatiable curiosity.

In order to trap a common foe and derail an impending threat, Havoc and Mercy must turn the tables to hunt a predator. Can an assassin and a mercenary find their balance on the thin line of loyalty, or will it snap under the weight of their wary hearts?
