Meet High Lord Sarc from Blood of the Ruby Throne by Sultry Summers @SultrySummers1 #RLFblog #scifi #romanceWelcome Lord Sarc from Blood of the Ruby Throne, a new Science Fiction Romance by Sultry Summers.

Introducing Lord Sarc

Age:26
Gender: male
Birthplace: Planet Alphxorn
Profession: High Lord of Alphxorn and Seti-Cronus
Ethnicity: Native of Alphxorn – third generation descendant of Seti-Cronus
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): humanoid
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I will allow my Lady Zera’s observations to answer this question.
The High Lord of Alphxorn, taller than her by almost a full head, seemed to tower over her. — Sarc’s dark hair showed a hint of auburn accenting his strong, masculine face. The determined and confident set of his firm jaw and chin further indicated the measure of sound character. She gazed a second longer to glimpse past the stern countenance he portrayed. His demeanor suggested a man of courage and honor. Still, a hint of arrogance slipped through.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Lord Sarc was brought up to rule! He swore to his dying father, and again on the assumption of the Throne of Alphxorn, to protect his world. Marauding pirates threatened Seti-Cronus, their civilization’s birth planet and neighbor and Sarc knew his world and rule were next. An honorable lord, he offered marriage to their ruler, Lady Zera. She refused. He had already conquered her world but Sarc allowed her to defend her throne. Defeating her, he offered her a choice of ruling by his side or as his slave. His judge of character, proven right, he and Zera married and she retained her position as High Lady of Seti-Cronus and as a warrior. But Sarc, as a husband, finds her role as a warrior difficult to accept.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Lady Zera. Sarc has known no other like her. Convincing her to join the two worlds garnered his respect but acknowledging her as a fighter forces him to face losing her. Zera quickly became part of him and will challenge his rule and his oaths.
What are the qualities of his voice? (pitch, quality, volume)
Lord Sarc rarely raises his voice, instead, richness and depth command attention. When addressing his court, he pitches his voice to be heard at the back of his throne room without electronic aid. Taught from childhood how to modulate his voice, he can reveal emotion or withhold it. His frigid toned judgement on an adversary has been known to cause them to tremble. Zera knew panic for the first time in her life, when, after their duel he whispered to her his terms of her defeat.
Is he close to family?
Sarc is extremely close to his younger, nineteen-year-old brother. Aware of his brother’s quick mind and knack for military matters, he often seeks his council.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Sarc realizes the nuances of the everyday life of his subjects of his world. However, in his private life he is less sensitive, and tends to expect the same level of honor he holds sacred.
What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?
Before meeting Zera, he feared a life without that special person or a soulmate.
What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?
He is secure in his role as a warrior and in his rule. Love was his concern.
How emotionally expressive is your character to others?
Sarc’s childhood training allows him to withhold showing his emotions or express them in a manner suiting the situation.
Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?
Zera. She holds his heart in her palm. In his mind, only dereliction to his duty could hurt him worse than her loss.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
I think Lady Zera had a great deal to do with it. She can be persistent and Zera knows we all have more stories to tell. You might enjoy her interview. I’ve included the link
https://www.rlfblog.com/sultry-summers-0718/
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
She could have omitted the scene where I am paraded around the Luithian court almost naked.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
Alphxorn and Seti-Cronus are filled with varied and interesting subjects. Seti-Cronus, our people’s birth world, has history that goes back into the mists of time and is more tolerant by nature. However, Alphxorn has yet to be completely explored. One reason our people migrated here was political, but not entirely. There is great mineral wealth here and room for a culture to grow.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
My younger brother Phorx. He hasn’t had the burden of sovereign rule and he is a fearless fighter. A less weighty childhood allows him to be more personable. His adventures scream to be told.

It’s been awhile, about four years, since I last published. I hope those who have, in the past, read my works haven’t forgotten me. Since then I’ve moved a couple of times, have had a few adventures and have finally found home. My husband, daughter, two dogs and several cats, have settled into a cute little bump in the road town in Eastern Tennessee. Our valley is so tucked away in between mountain ridges our cell phones don’t receive necessitating a landline and satellite everything else. I know for sure the rock wall in our backyard, that serves as property divider, is Civil War era. It’s a great place for my wayward imagination. Seriously, I think we have fae frequenting the backyard and at night I expect to see a UFO land in the hayfield I can see out the front bay-windows.
Though I have kept my website up and running, until about a year ago I’ve had a major writer’s block that I managed to move past. I also made the decision to Indie publish. While I do have one book, Tail of the Dragon, which remains with Decadent Publishing, I have withdrawn my other works. Over the next months, I plan to republish them beginning with Blood of the Ruby Throne. The others will follow after I’ve revisited them. With the assistance of a wonderful editor, I have had the pleasure to work with, you will see them re-released. I also have several new works coming, as well as a series I’ve been working on for a long time.
I’ve missed being an active author and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Meet Zera from Blood of the Ruby Throne by Sultry Summers @SultrySummers1 #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceLet’s meet Zera from Blood of the Ruby Throne, a new Science Fiction romance by Sulty Summers. 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 latest book.

Introducing Zera from Blood of the Ruby Throne by Sultry Summers

Age: 20
Gender: female
Birthplace: Planet Seti-Cronus
Profession: High Lady of Seti-Cronus and Alphxorn
Ethnicity: Native of Seti-Cronus
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): humanoid
Please provide a physical description of your character.
She stands at eye level with many of her military officers, 5′ 8″. She keeps fit and spends several hours a day training. She also practices with both traditional weapons and advanced. She is proud of her long blonde hair, which has only been trimmed, never cut. She wears it braided for practicality. She has blue eyes and has been told they can be quite piercing when she is angry.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Zera had not planned on ruling Seti-Cronus. She prepared for a career as an officer and warrior in her worlds military. That changed with the murder of her twin brother Enos. But Zera honors her oaths. Duty, honor and truth are the principals that guide her. When Enos was killed, the throne became her sworn responsibility and she defended it. During the duel with Lord Sarc of Alphxorn she came to recognize and know the woman inside. She continues to hold her values sacred and but she develops a different view of duty to her people. She knows, she will always be a warrior though Lord Sarc preferred her to play a less active role in the worlds’ defense, which put them at odds, but Zera will not compromise her identity.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Sarc, Lord of both worlds, Alphxorn and now, Seti-Cronus, Zera’s husband. Sarc’s presence fills the room commanding immediate attention. He is a natural leader who rarely needs to raise his voice, his stare is sufficient. When necessary, he is a superb warrior and the only one who has ever bested Zera in a sword duel. His is faithful to his word, principles and peoples.
How does your heroine dress?
Zera, as a warrior prefers to dress as a commander of Seti-Cronus. Until her wedding she owned only three dresses and rarely wore them. Her wedding gown became the first feminine gown she owned or wore. Since becoming co-monarch, she appears in uniform when on duty as Commander Zera in defense of the planet. She varies her wardrobe between long, flowing dresses, comfortable pants and blouses and gowns when appropriate.
What is your character’s family like?
Her younger sister, Terianna, is all the immediate family she has. Her twin brother, Enos, who was a few minutes older, ruled before he was murdered. He was a fair and benevolent monarch and a loving brother. Lornus, their nanny, raised all three royal children and served various other roles to all the children, but to Zera, she is lady’s maid, friend and surrogate mother.
Her mother, who long ago passed when Terianna was born. Her father passed when she and her brother were sixteen.
Is she close to family?
Zera treasures her sister and Lornus. When Enos was killed, she was devastated and became more protective of her little sister. But she came to realize Terianna was less naïve about men than she. Though her mother is dead, she isn’t completely cut off from her. On Seti-Cronus there are occasions when her mother’s spirit transcends and can communicate through the mystical ancestral, heirloom sword passed to both daughters.
I don’t believe the relationship with Sarc can be explained so briefly. Possibly by reading Zera and Sarc’s story, a deeper understanding can be found.
What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?
Growing up in a ruling family, as the next in line, but not wishing to rule and remain a warrior placed Zera in an unenviable position. Given power and position as a royal, she earned rank and respect in the military. She is confident in her leadership of warriors into battle, but finds it difficult to resolve the responsibility of wisely governing the planet.
What past event causes your character the most fear?
The death of Zera’s brother terrified her. She felt his passing and the emptiness that followed challenged her strength.
What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?
Zera’s duty to her people and their security over her personal welfare.
What is your heroine’s biggest personal flaw?
Zera keeps her emotions close and doesn’t share them. She projects a confident and assured façade and never shows fear regardless of the toll on her emotions.
How does your character handle challenges?
Zera has been instructed how a royal and a warrior leads since childhood and that includes meeting challenges head-on. She fails—once.
Who in her life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?
Lord Sarc, conquer of her world and her heart. Zera is forced to face her own vulnerability as a woman and as a ruler and into an intimate relationship with a man she considered an enemy for most of her life.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

She could have left out the one time I failed to face a challenge.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

She loves to escape her world and create havoc in mine!
