Is It True: The Alpha Council Chronicles by Brenda Sparks @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #PNRWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog.

The Alpha Council Chronicles Series by Brenda Sparks

Genre Paranormal Romance

Series 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 vow, to protect not only their kind but the humans existing alongside them.

Together they will confront an extraordinary destiny of peril, passion, and dark pleasures in the riveting paranormal romance series, The Alpha Council Chronicles.

For a limited time, The Alpha Council Chronicles series is on sale. Each story is $0.99, and the entire series can be purchased for only $3.96

Is it true:

this is your first series?

Yes, in fact, while I have written a few stand-alone stories, this is my one and only series.

How many books are part of a series?

There are 5 stories at this time with one more in production. Alpha Mine, Deadly Alpha, Alpha Lover and Alpha Pair are currently on sale for $0.99 each while Alpha Revealed is due to be released in March.

you lost sleep while writing this series?

Absolutely! The heroes of this series invaded my dreams, specially Nicholai. I’d wake in the middle of the night and have to get out of bed to write down a scene.

you did research for this series?

I had to do a lot of research regarding Russian royalty because some of my vampires are descendants of The House of Romanov.

some characters in this series are not human? (pets for example)

Besides the vampires, the series features a group of demons who love to cause trouble and aren’t exactly fans of my Alphas.

this series has more than one genre?

No. It is strictly a paranormal romance.

you speak more than one language?

I can speak and understand a little Spanish, French, and sign language, but I will only admit to speaking English.

you grew up where you live now?

No. I grew up in Virginia and now live in the Sunshine State.

you love to read?

Absolutely! There is never enough time in a week to read, but I do it every chance I get. I’m a big fan of paranormal and historical romances.

you are never late?

I’m one of those people who feels like if I arrive 15 minutes ahead of schedule then I’m actually late. Being late is one of my biggest pet peeves.

you love pizza?

Ummm…yes!! I’m a wanna be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

you love sushi?

It’s not my thing, but I love watching the sushi chefs make it.

you have a pet?

I do. Two years ago, I rescued a pair of rats from being sold as snake food. The girls are silly and sooo smart. It’s been fun having them around the house.

Alpha Pair by Brenda Sparks

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

How strong is the blood that binds? Tatiana Bolovich is a beautiful femme fatale with a haunting history. Having recently discovered the brutish Demetri Romanoff is her heartmate, she spent the past year avoiding him, but the Fates have other plans.

Demetri commands every situation. A strong, valiant warrior he’s used to being in control, that is until he is kidnapped by demons. Forced to endure unspeakable experiments at the hands of his enemy, the Alpha discovers just how out of control life can get.

Summoned by the Alpha Council, Tatiana grudgingly helps track Demetri down, promising herself that she will disappear from his life forever once the job is done. But matters of the heart are not so easily ignored. Will she give him a chance to prove himself, or will she deny her nature and slip away into the night?

Starved for blood, vampire, Nicholai Peterhof is greatly relieved when two tourists decide to grace his restaurant, but one sip from the pretty brunette and his world is forever turned upside down.

To get past Juliette’s defenses and in order to keep her safe, Nicholai must prove himself worthy of her love and trust. Unbeknownst to the couple, her personal demons are not the only ones threatening their relationship. Hiding virtually unseen by the vampires, Demon Royalty plots to destroy not only the couple but the entire vampire breed. Luckily, Nicholai will do anything for Juliette—even if it means sacrificing himself.
To have their happily ever after, Nicholai must save Julie from her demons- both real and imaginary.

Read Dracula's Bride by Rebekah R Ganiere @vampwerezombie #RLFblog #GothicRomance #PNR

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.

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.

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.
