Camron: A Badari Warriors #SciFi 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!

Camron: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 7) by Veronica Scott

Dr. Gemma Madarian is far from her home in the human Sectors, kidnapped along with hundreds of other humans to be used for horrifying experiments conducted on a remote planet by alien scientists.
She and another prisoner, Camron of the Badari, are the only survivors of a deadly crash landing. She’s paired up with the genetically engineered soldier by their mutual enemies and sent fleeing through rough country, hunted for pleasure by an enemy officer and his ferocious trackers.
The enemy wants a triumphant kill. Gemma and Camron want to survive.
Camron never dreamt of having a mate but Gemma shatters his preconceptions and makes him desperate to do everything in his power to save her life and claim her for his.
There’s no help or refuge to be had in the desert where they’re fleeing for their lives.
Or is there?
Will Camron and Gemma live to fight another day and explore the growing attraction between them, or will ancient secrets and bitter rivalries end their bid for freedom?
This is the eighth book in the Badari Warriors world (and the seventh book in the numbered series) and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Top Blogger of 2018: Brenda Sparks

#Romance Lives Forever on #RLFblog Meet the top bloggers @NJWaltersauthor @Brenda_Sparks @VickiBatman As I looked at this list of names, I wondered if people would think I was only giving out this award to friends. That’s true, partially. Each has become a friend over the last year or has been for a long time. Hosting this site gives me a unique opportunity to get to know many authors. But the statistics speak for themselves. When I pulled year long stats from the backside of the blog, these were the names that floated to the top.

Brenda Sparks made the list as top blogger due to having the most page views throughout the entire year. She also promoted the blog itself. I was tickled when I looked at the stats and saw her name right at the top, because in my mind, she certainly deserved the appause. Please do visit her post and check out her book, Alpha Pair. Brenda wins a year of cover ads on RLF.

Top Blog Posts of 2018

Below are the titles and links to the top ten posts of the year. There are some interesting statistics I’d like to point out.

Of these, two were from the Cancer Awareness series (Vicki Batman and Iris Blobel). Four were paranormal romance. Four were historical. Two fantasy, and two were LGBT. If these don’t add up to ten it’s because some posts covered more than one genre. I invite you to click and visit each of these. They will be well worth your time.

Know the Hero from Gabe by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi romanceVeronica 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 hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Gabe: A Badari Warriors Sci Fi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 5) by Veronica Scott

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13+
Gabe Carter, hotshot pilot and ex-Special Forces soldier, is far from his home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Shot down by the enemy over desolate territory far from his Badari allies and gravely injured, Gabe’s only hope is a mysterious woman on the run herself.
Keshara has to decide whether to abandon the human to die of his injuries on a windswept mountain top or give up her own quest for freedom and take him to a place he can be helped. The undeniable spark between them complicates matters.
His attraction to her is off the charts but when she betrays him to the Khagrish enemy, Gabe doesn’t know what to believe. Trapped inside an alien lab bursting with mysteries and lies, his only hope may be to trust her…again.
Because the renegade alien scientist running her own private experiments wants to use him to accomplish her goals and perpetuate the evil, no matter what she has to do to ensure his compliance. Keshara’s life hangs in the balance and Gabe has to make a choice.
This is the sixth book in the Badari Warriors world (and the fifth book in the series) and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Know the Hero from Gabe: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel (Sectors New Allies Series Book 5)

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Gabe can’t stand being inactive or bored so he’d get up a card game with buddies, maybe go for a late night run or volunteer for extra duty in his pilot job.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
He works hard to stay in shape, to be prepared for combat missions and eats very healthy foods, so probably a mix of carbs and proteins, maybe trail mix with nuts and dried berries if he only needs a snack.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
He generally wears black tee shirts, camouflage utility pants and combat boots. Plus of course his knife and a blaster!
Does he know how to fix things?
He’s a soldier and a pilot primarily but he’ll make an attempt to fix things in an emergency. He’s got a good technical mind and understands the bigger picture of how things work in his technologically advanced universe. His way of fixing things might not be the conventional solution but it works.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
Gabe does the best he can under any situation and if there’s a failure, he learns from it and moves on. He’s not easily defeated – he’s constantly thinking of alternative solutions and will only give up when he’s dead…so, in effect as long as he’s breathing, he’s moving forward and problem solving.
The book begins with him flying through a storm, trying to escape three enemy fighters, and he eventually crashes, but Gabe perseveres despite his injuries.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Gaber doesn’t have much experience with kids but he likes them, especially their thirst for knowledge about the world around them. He enjoys tutoring the Badari cubs in the sanctuary valley, which he does as he has free time.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
He’s not a morning person but give him something hot with a hefty dose of caffeine and he’s ready to go. In combat situations, he doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for the ideal time of day, so he’s trained himself to respond rapidly at any hour of the day or night.
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
Gabe’s always himself – he doesn’t put on airs and he’s not boastful. What you see in what you get with him. Most people in the valley are aware he’s an ex-Special Forces soldier and they know he’s a hot pilot. They can see how the Alpha relies on Gabe for tackling dangerous assignments, so he lets his actions speak for him.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
If a worker is assigned to do a specific task, like servicing the engines of captured enemy flyers, he’ll stay out of the person’s way. Otherwise, he’s a self-service kinda guy who’d rather just take care of whatever needs doing.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
He has a Sectors Special Forces tattoo on his upper bicep. No piercings. Not to give spoilers here but IF Gabe was to become the mate of a Badari woman (author gives coy grin here – you’ll have to read the book), then he’d receive a ‘claiming mark’ on his shoulder, which the Badari goddess would turn into a golden circle like a tatt on his shoulder, to show her approval of the mate bond.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
In the dire situation on the Badari planet, there aren’t any private vehicles. He flies shuttles which have been captured from the enemy, in support of military operations.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle! Gabe’s a practical guy and he cares about the environment.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Know the Heroine from Star Cruise Mystery Dancer by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi romanceVeronica 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.

Star Cruise Mystery Dancer by Veronica Scott

Genre Scifi romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
New Sectors novel, included in Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 3 anthology. Tassia Megg is a woman on the run after the death of her elderly guardian. Her search to get off the planet in a hurry comes when chance directs her to an open dance audition for the luxury cruise liner Nebula Zephyr’s resident troupe. If there is one thing Tassia can do, it is dance!
Security Officer Liam Austin is suspicious of the newest performer to join the Comettes. She shows all the signs of being a woman on the run and seems to fit the Sectors-wide broadcast description of a missing thief, accused of stealing priceless artifacts. As he gets to know Tassia during the cruise, he starts to wonder if she’s something more – a long vanished princess in hiding from deadly political enemies of her family perhaps? And what’s the story with the three-eyed feline companion other crew members swear Tassia brought aboard the ship? Does the animal even exist?
As the ship approaches its next port of call, all the issues come to a boil and Liam must decide if he’ll step in to help Tassia or betray her. Life is about to get very interesting aboard the Nebula Zephyr as Liam tries to uncover the truth. Could F’rrh, the peculiar alien cat he has been hearing about, be the key to the mystery and Tassia’s fate?

Know the Heroine from Star Cruise: Mystery Dancer

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?
Tassia has a companion, a three eyed- alien feline named F’rrh, who is a genie of sorts and lives in a beautifully painted black lacquer box when she isn’t out in the world. So Tassia might sit for a while with F’rrh in her lap, and have a conversation in their native language about what to do next in her escape across the galaxy. Once Tassia meets Liam on board the ship of course, she likes to go out with him after shows and they often go to the ship’s gigantic beach deck for picnics. She also makes good friends among the dance troupe members and spends time with them. The cruise ship crew are allowed to make use of the amenities when off duty and the ship’s Artificial Intelligence also has an endless supply of trideos and shows.
What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?
Rich desserts! Since she works off so many calories every day at rehearsal and doing the shows, she can eat as much as she wants and not be concerned about the somewhat skimpy costumes. But in general Tassia eats a balanced diet, since she needs to be fit to perform.
Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.
Tassia is a dancer so she likes loose fitting, flowy dresses, although when it’s time to rehearse she wears clothes like leotards or leggings and a sports bra. She enjoys going barefoot as much as she can. Her costumes for the shows on the interstellar cruise ship Nebula Zephyr as a member of the prestigious Comettes dance troupe are elaborate, glittery and glamorous.
Does she know how to fix things?
She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
How does she act around children she doesn’t know?
Tassia hasn’t spent much time with children, having been on the run from assassins nearly all her life after her royal family was murdered in a coup, but she’s generally a very friendly and sweet person. She does help teach a basic dance class for the passengers’ kids on the cruise ship and they like her. She’s patient and good at giving instructions and corrections.
What is she like first thing in the morning?
She’s had to learn to wake up instantly and be ready to move at a moment’s notice because of the danger surrounding her, so Tassia doesn’t linger in bed or dawdle over breakfast. She’s a morning person by nature but has late nights as a Comette dancer.
How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?
No one was ever supposed to suspect she was a princess, for her own safety, so she’s polite and reserved. She doesn’t put on any airs.
Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?
Tassia will always try to handle things for herself.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
She’s not much of a jewelry person but will wear the blingy, dangling earrings mandated as part of her costume. There’s a giant gem involved in the mystery surrounding her and whether she is or isn’t the real princess, so she tends to associate jewels with trouble and unhappiness.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
As a member of the ship’s crew, when on a planet she has to rent a groundcar or take public transport.
Recycle or toss?
Recycle definitely! As a fugitive she’s been poor and hungry so Tassia believe nothing should ever go to waste.
Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

Know the Hero from Darik by Veronica Scott @vscotttheauthor #RLFblog #scifi #romance

Veronica 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 hero, but first, tell us about the book.

Darik: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance (Sectors New Allies Book 4) by Veronica Scott

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13+
Nicolle James is far from her home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Her only hope might be a mysterious soldier she’d glimpsed outside the laboratory fence. She’d managed to sneak a few words of conversation with him when her captors weren’t watching but now the aliens were taking her inside the lab to begin the experiments.
Darik, a warrior of the genetically engineered Badari pack, is on a solo recon mission to check out a mysterious new lab high in the mountains. His orders are strict – do not engage. But when he has a chance meeting with the woman who might be his mate, he vows not to abandon her, orders or no orders.
Can he get inside an underground lab, find Nicolle and rescue her without getting captured himself? And when he learns the lab’s deadly secrets, can he get word to his pack about the new dangers?
Because the ruthless alien scientist running the experiments wants to get her hands on him too and will stop at nothing to achieve her goals.
This is the fourth book in a new scifi romance series and each novel has a satisfying Happy for Now ending for the hero and heroine, not a cliffhanger. Some overarching issues do remain unresolved in each book since this is an ongoing series but romance always wins the day in my novels!

Know the Hero from Darik: A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel (Sectors New Allies Series Book 4)

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

For Sci Fi or Paranormal Heroes:

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
Badari love card games so he probably plays some very complicated form of solitaire. Or makes sure his weapons are ready. Or he might run through some exercises.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Like all Badari, Darik is part predator so he enjoys meat, cooked on the rare side. He’ll also eat fish, fruits (Badari love tangy berries) and bread.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
Darik and his packmates were trained as super soldiers so he generally likes to wear camouflage utility pants with useful pockets, a T shirt and an overshirt, plus boots.
Does he know how to fix things?
Each Badari warrior has his own specialties. Darik is more about mission planning than fixing tech and he can also pilot atmospheric craft like shuttles.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
In the book he tries to rescue Nicolle and that goes badly the first time, not for lack of planning on his part, but because of an unforeseen action the enemy took. Darik never gives up though – he’s always thinking ahead to the next move and looking for any possibility to set things right. He’s stubborn and optimistic.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Children are one of the most important things in the world to the Badari so he’s a natural with kids, like a friendly big brother. He likes to show them how to do things. Darik is very action oriented.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
He loves the morning – a fresh new day, new opportunities, chances for good things to happen…
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
He’s pretty unself conscious, because he knows he’s a tough guy, able to take care of himself and others if needed. The fact that he’s been genetically engineered like all his packmates is nobody’s business. The fact he’s a highly trained soldier and general badass should be enough.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
Badari are used to doing for themselves, having been prisoners in the alien labs for generations. He’ll let someone else handle a situation if they’re more well trained for it than he is. Someone else flew him to the site of his current mission, for example. He admits he doesn’t have the skills to hack computers so he doesn’t mind his Artificial Intelligence companion handling those tasks.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Darik, like all Badari, bears scars from mistreatment by the alien scientists, as well as from combat. No other marks or personal adornment, although now that his pack has met humans, that could change. Mated Badari do have a mark on the back of their shoulders signifying that state but the marking occurs as part of claiming and being claimed by their true mate. Badari believe the mark is a gift from their goddess, signifying the lifelong bond.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
No one on the planet has a personal vehicle and there’s no public transport either. Darik will either fly himself on a mission or if a pilot has been assigned by the Alpha, he’ll take the passenger role.
Recycle or toss?
Darik and the other Badari were engineered using animal DNA as part of their makeup, so they feel very close to nature and are all about preserving their planet. So he and the others definitely recycle where possible.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!
